As a general reply I can say this much so far. You do not want the TV speakers on and doing anything if you are using the sound bar - kind of defeats the purpose of having the sound bar.
The LED lights are explained in detail at the bottom of page 8 in the manual. I do agree they look to be annoying in thier operation, many lights going on & off every time you push a button. You could just put some black tape over them.
When you have given us the reat of the information, I can lookup the owner's manuals and give you some more insight in the best way to hook it up.
Edit: Yes you have to turn the sound bar on & off. It's an amp in the system (another component), so it has to be on to work. Although you could leave it on all the time if you wanted to but it will always be drawing some power.

I now have the tv remote, cable remote, dvr remote and the added soundbar remote.
They need to make a manual and remote for those over the age of 60.

I'm almost 73 and I understand what your issues are and what solutions will probably work. Don't necessarily blame your lack of technical knowledge on your age...you just may not have much experience in the field. I'm guessing you didn't know these things when you were 59 either.
...They need to make a manual and remote for those over the age of 60.
For starters, check out your tv's menu [audio section] to see if there is an option to switch the tv's internal speakers to OFF.
Good luck and welcome to DBSTalk!
