    My Soundbar for Xbox One TV


    I am currently saving up to buy an xbox one but before I take the plunge there is just one (no pun intended) thing I want to make sure of. I have a sound bar connected to my tv. Its by an optical audio cable. There is no av reciever or anything of that sort
    and once again its just a soundbar connected to my tv via an optical audio cable. All of my hardware is connected via HDMI with the exception of my directv which I had to connect via componet. My plan for my future setup for when I get my xbox one is to have
    my directv connected in the passthrough and to have my xbox one connected via HDMI (Yes I know thats obvious Im just trying to cover all of the bases) and with all that background info I now present my question: If I were to say the xbox volume function to
    go up or down would the volume be changed on my tv or my soundbar? and if it is my tv is there any way I can set it up to where it changes on my soundbar?

    Thank You

    :)

    360 hdmi to tv optical to soundbar producing no sound. Xbox one also hooked via hdmi works fine.

    trying to connect 360 to tv via hdmi, and tv to soundbar via optical cable produces no sound from soundbar.

    Here is my current set:

    1. cable box hdmi out to xbox one hdmi in

    xbox hdmi out to tv in - input 1

    2. Xbox 360 hdmi out to tv hdmi in - input 2

    3. TV optical out to soundbar optical in

    xbox one plays fine, and I seem to get surround sound from video games and cable.

    I am currently getting no sound from 360 to soundbar. 360 will only play sound through tv even though optical cable is connected from tv to soundbar. I have a feeling it has to do with xbox one being connected to another input. Even though I am, of course,
    using input 2 for 360 when playing 360 games, I wonder if Xbox one is interfering with the signal? And, telling the soundbar through the tv, 'I am THE ONE, and u will only hear my voice.'

    Anyways, curious if anyone has suggestions on what may be wrong. Here, I'm basically trying to use my soundbar for all things tv related. And, I would've thought connecting the One and 360 via hdmi on separate inputs would allow each hdmi signal to go through
    and the tv would send whichever signal (input being either One OR 360) was currently running through optical cable to soundbar.

    As an fyi, I was originally connecting One hdmi to soundbar to tv. And, 360 was using optical directly to soundbar. Overall, I thought sending optical from tv to soundbar would be the most efficient connection path until I ran into this problem.

    any ideas/questions?

    Connection issues

    I have an LG65SK8000PLB tv and an LG Sk8 soundbar, both of which are HDMI ARC comparable, I want to connect my Xbox One X. My tv and soundbar connect ok over ARC, can I connect my Xbox through the other HDMI port on my soundbar?........my satellite box is
    connected to my other HDMI port on my tv so that's not an option

    Yes, it should work. S/PDIF is preferred cabling, well done!

    Can I connect Xbox One directly to a sound bar?

    I have a Vizio soundbar connected to my TV. I ran the Audio Receiver Setup on the Xbox One and now the X1 powers on/off the soundbar along with my entire TV/DVR system.

    As for volume control, if you've ran the Audio Receiver Setup then you can control the Soundbar via either voice commands or the Xbox One Smartglass App (the volume controls on Smartglass will no longer control the TV volume, however, as they'll become dedicated
    to the soundbar--I presume the same may be me true for voice commands).

    I've tried multiple hookups. So xbox to my TV and and soundbar to TV via arc is what I have.I also tried xbox to the soundbar direct but it doesn't seem to work at all when I do that. I've played around with the sync settings on both my TV and soundbar.
    If it's an arc issue is that because of the TV itself or the technology?

    The hdmi in port on the Xbox One is for plugging in TV boxes, not for plugging in soundbars, as the signal goes in, not out. Your best bet is to use a optical spdif cable from the Xbox to your soundbar, if your soundbar supports optical spdif.

    What kind of sound card does xbox one X have?

    The Xbox One X doesn't have a soundcard, in a way a PC would have a Creative Labs SoundBlaster card for example.

    The Xbox One does all sound processing on the main CPU so to speak.

    However, the clearer sound when you connect the Xbox to your soundbar directly can have other reasons than the "soundcard".

    I assume you had your soundbar, TV and console set up like this:

    Xbox One Console-->HDMI Cable-->TV-->Optical Cable-->Soundbar.

    While the console transmits multi-channel surround to the TV, the TV might only transmit Stereo to the soundbar.

    A lot of TVs only forward Stereo Sound through an optical cable, if the video feed comes from an external source. Only "internal" video streams that come from the TV's own tuner or media being played through the TV's USB Media Player will be transmitted
    in multichannel audio to the sound bar.

    By connecting the Xbox directly to the soundbar, the soundbar will get the original multi-channel sound from the console, instead of the stereo downmix from the TV.

    So I assume your setup now looks like this:

    Soundbar<-- Optical Cable<-- Xbox One -->HDMI cable--> TV

    Right?
