Using Verizon Stream TV Soundbar to output audio from Fios set-top box

Message 1 of 3
(790 Views)

I recently connected the Verizon Stream TV Soundbar to my TV. Able to download apps and view NetFlix and Hulu using the soundbar. When I return back to the Fios box, the sound comes out of the TV rather than the soundbar. Am I missing something? How do I get the Fios Settop box to output sound on the soundbar?

You should have the soundbar hooked up to the TV with an HDMI cable that goes to the eARC port on the TV. The cable box goes to the TV via HDMI. Or you can send the cable box to the soundbar via HDMI, and hook the soundbar up to the TV using HDMI to the TV's eARC port.
