How do I connect the optical cable for sound output from the A95L TV?

    If you are setting up your A95L BRAVIA™ TV with an A/V Receiver or Soundbar, and they don't have an ARC (Audio Return Channel) or eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) compatible HDMI® input, then you will need to connect an Optical cable (sound) and a HDMI cable (video) to your TV.
