Connecting DVD player to Samsung Soundbar F450

Last response: in Home Audio

I am having trouble getting a DVD to work since I installed a Samsung HW-F450 Soundbar. Prior to this installation we were able to watch movies on our DVD player.

I have the Soundbar connected with HDMI cables from my cable box to the soundbar as well as from my Samsung TV to the soundbar. The DVD player is connected to the TV.

I think that I need an Optical Cable to run from the DVD player to the sound bar, however the DVD player is older and has the three prong (white, red, yellow) connections only.

Can anyone give me some help with this issue?

The soundbar seems to have an analog audio input so you could connect the audio from the DVD directly to it. Another option is to connect the cable box and DVD to the TV and use an optical digital audio cable from the TV to the soundbar.
