My Dad, being of mature age and proportionately zero tech knowledge, just bought a Samsung LCD, 40", 1080p, yada yada don't know the model number but anyways IT DOESN'T HAVE A FREAKIN RCA AUDIO OUTPUT! Only has these wierd HDMI and 'optical audio' crap... I don't even know what these optical audio cords look like. For years now I've been trying to get my dad a simple way to control all his devices with one remote and not have to switch modes too much -- this is just abhorrently insufferable. Can anyone point me in the direction of a cheap solution? Thanks.
