    Need help

    I have a Mac Desk top with an old iTunes account. Back in the olden days I purchased music and movies. In order to watch the movies, either bought or rented, I had to open my iTunes account on my desk top and then use my apple tv connected to my Samsung tv to watch the movie. I had to switch...

    Need help

    Hi all, thank you for your quick responses. Technically I am a senior citizen but like to think I can handle these tech issues. So please be patient. Originally I had a Samsung LN52B750 which was not smart. I had to log in to my iTunes account and then use the wireless capability to access...

    Need help

    I posted to this forum in 2012 and a wonderful member (schan1269) helped me connect all my devices. I am forever grateful. Really, that member was patient and kind. Fast forward to 2020 and I have a new Samsung TV QN65Q80TAFXZA. My receiver is an old JVC TH-G31 with 5 speakers and 1 woofer and...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    Just got the Toslink switch and "round" optical cables today. It is all connected and works great. I tried programming one remote and it was a disaster. I may save that for another day. Again, thanks for your help and the suggestions on equipment and cables. I used the links you gave me to...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    Alas, the units are set up and Dolby sound is coming from the speakers. Can't wait for the new Toslink switch and optical cords to arrive so the set up will be done. I did look for the thread about universal remotes on this website and never found it. We have a Synergy V remote from TWC. It...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    I bought a Toslink switch and two Toslink round optical cables. I'll return the "square cable" to Best Buy when the others arrive. I think our remote is universal and can be programed for all of the equipment. I researched the ATV2 manual and it can be set for Dolby Digital which could solve...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    I plugged the optical into the ATV and cranked up my Itunes on the TV. I was watching The Hunger Games and it came through on two of the speakers. So now that the sound is connected on the devices I need to find out how to get it out of all 5 speakers. Maybe it was just that scene that only...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    The digital optical cable I bought on Monday is a Rocketfish. It looks like the shape of a house around the optical part. I paid $25 at Best Buy. But I like Amazon better.

    Happiness. My ATV has an optical audio port, ethernet port, HDMI connection and power supply. Sweet.

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    I'll let you know after lunch. I'll check the back to see what the ports and connections look like. But I am also thinking that I can switch the optical cable from the back of the STB to the ATV if it has a connection and I want to watch a movie I downloaded. Then I wouldn't have to buy the...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    Real quick: can you help me with some of the acronyms? ATV (apple tv)? STB? I'm still confused. I have a Samsung TV LN52B750(researched everything before I bought this). I have a cable box from Time Warner Cable Explorer 8640 and the HTiB JVC TH-G31(this was a gift - not my choice). I also...

    Samsung TV, Time Warner Cable Box and JVC DVD/Surround Sound Receiver

    OK, so I'm confused again, but trying desperately to figure out the terminology. My Samsung LN52B750 has a digital audio out optical. My TV has 4 HDMI ports. Should i connect the digital audio optical cable from my tv to the Cable box or to the HTiB? There is a single digital audio optical...
