    Can't get sound from optical port on Samsung TV to Sony sound system.

    Hello everyone. I have an old LN32R83BD Samsung TV. It has a plethora of ports in the back, one of them is a Toslink optical OUT, so naturally, I want to connect said TV to an also old MHC-S7AV Sony sound system's optical IN. I thought it was pretty straight forward: OUT --> IN: done—no such...

    Trying to get a Logitech z906 5.1 sound working with an optical cable through Sony 4k TV

    Hello, Before I start I want to say that I know that the z906 kit has a very poor sound quality and is trash for a home cinema. I have had this kit for 6 years now, used it to get 5.1 sound for my PC and would like to recycle it now into a home cinema before buying a proper sound kit. And also...

    One Optical Audio out - Two Optical Audio inputs

    I hope I am not being redundant here as I don't want to waste people's time. I did do a search and not sure if my question has ever been addressed or answered. To say the least, I am confused as I don't want to SPLIT the audio, I only want the FULL audio to go to whatever device I choose. I...

    DTS Audio: HDMI ARC vs. optical

    Just got a Vizio sound bar - it can connect to the TV via HDMI ARC, which is convenient. I then connected a Blu-Ray (a PS3) to the TV via HDMI, with no separate audio out connection from the PS3 (because the HDMI ARC delivers the audio to the sound bar) HOWEVER....in doing this, I lose the...

    Connecting optical cables? Ridges on the top or on the side?

    I have a Onkyo TX-NR575 and my son ruined one of my optical inputs. Which direction do the ridges go when putting it into the receiver slot...up or to the side? Even this input seems a little iffy to me. Thanks

    I'm not sure if this is in the right forum, but I'll still list my problem. I have a JVC TH-G41 hooked up to my XBox One through optical and no matter what I do to reset it it will work for about thirty minutes then start blaring static.
