New X1 Box with only HDMI out. How can you connect to a soundbar?

Just received the X1 upgrade equipment. The Cable box only has HDMI out. How do you connect to a soundbar.

Many TVs include an audio output to feed a soundbar or other spearkers.

You can try using an HDMI audio extractor box like this one that supplies both TOSLINK optical and L/R RCA audio outputs to feed a soundbar: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E/

Does your tv have audio out? If not swap it out for either a RNG150 or XG2 (same price), each has separate audio outputs.
