Hi - have an old Panasonic TV with multiple HDMI inputs but not HDMI ARC nor optical input - is there a way to connect soundbar or via PS4 to tv? Or must tv have either Arc or Optical inputs

Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community.
User @BrianJP is absolutely correct. The audio needs to be drawn from the TV and will not work via an HDMI input on your TV. Optical out would be the other option. It would not be possible either to include the PS4.
I'm very sorry if this is disappointing. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

The HDMI ARC needs to be built into the TV, so an adapter will not work.
Can you please confirm the make and model of your TV so we can check what options are available?
