I basically use an identical setup with a surface pro. For me sound does work, but perhaps you need to change the sound device being used? So when you click on the sound icon in the taskbar, does it give you the option of both the realtek speakers, and the tv?

Yes use the cable youre using to connect to soundbar.

The soundbar definitely works yeah? Can hear normal TV through it? What about the TV's own speaker volume?
