    Sound bar with TV without audio out

    Just bought a sound bar only to discover that my TV has no audio out. It only has components, audio in, HDMI in, and a USB. Is there any way I can connect the sound bar to any of those ports?

    "Fake" sound bar

    I purchased this very nice entertainment system for my new TV and it has this cutout for a sound bar. Since I have tower speakers and didn't like looking at that empty space I built a "fake" sound bar. Cheesy or not?
