The sound bar has 3 information sources and one is an av contribution with the red and white data sources. Is there any link that will have a HDMI female association with a Male HDMI in addition to AV connector?

    What soundbar did you get? Normally you would route your hdmi connection through the soundbar via the hdmi connection.. So your chromecast would connect to the soundbar, then from the soundbar to your TV via hdmi.

    Or you could use arc from the TV to the soundbar via hdmi.. Or you would run the connections from the TV to the soundbar via toslink (optical) etc. etc..

    While this is not really the best forum for this sort of help, you are in the general discussion area and you welcome to try and get some help..
    Please post up your make and model of your TV, and the new soundbar you purchased. And we should be able to figure out best way to connect them...
