Default soundbar?

Hi everyone.

Need some advice. I have a 40 Sony led tv and Dish network HD DVR receiver. Id like to improve the sound as all I am using is the tv speakers. The tv is wall mounted and I have HDMI in the wall. Sadly I do not have any speaker wire in the wall. Im thinking a soundbar mounted beneath the tv but I dont know how they connect. My tv has an optical out port.

I am running HDMI from my dish receiver to the tv (in the wall). I also want to add a bluray player. Guessing I can hook to the same hdmi cable via a switch.

So I guess my question is, what is a good way to add quality sound without having to run speaker wires or other wires etc

Suggestions?

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_158HTCT...0.html?tp=6485 You can hook the Dish receiver and blu ray player to the soundbar then one Hdmi out to the TV. No speaker wires needed.

Sorry to sound dumb but how does the soundbar hook up? Do all of the HDMI's hook to the sub and then what? What hooks to the soundbar itself?

One cord from the sub to the soundbar. Yes I believe the HDMI connections are in the powered sub. If you look around there are a few soundbars with a wireless sub if the cord is a problem.
