Bose 700 not working with Roku

I have a Roku streaming stick and a 7 yr old LG TV. The TV doesn’t have HDMI-ARC outputs, only regular HDMI and optical. My understanding is that you can’t use the Bose 700 HDMI-ARC cord with the TV’s HDMI output, so I have it hooked up through the optical. I thought the Bose 700 soundbar would just pick up the Roku sound through the TV, but the sound is still coming through the TV. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you

Hey, thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community!


Sorry that you're having trouble receiving audio through your Soundbar 700 from your Roku streaming stick. It sounds like you may need to adjust some audio output settings to ensure the audio is being directed through the optical output to the Soundbar 700. Are you able to take a look at the settings and ensure it is set to this?


Let me know how you get on.
