The problem is that this isn't like a typical reciever in which there are multiple HDMI in's and a HDMI out. It simply has a single HDMI out, and a single optical in. This specific HTIB supports ARC, but unfortunately, his TV is about 7 years old and does not(Toshiba rear projection). It has a single HDMI in on the TV and several HD RCA jacks (blue/green/red/white/red). The tv has no optical output whatsoever so the problem is, how do you wire the HTIB to the TV to make it 5.1 through the "receiver"?
Currently, his comcast box is wired via HD RCA jacks, and the HTIB blurray/reciever is hooked to the TV's HDMI in, but there is no sound because he needs to run an optical cord from the TV to the Reciever, BUT his TV does not support optical.
Can anyone help me out so I can help him out?
I am new to Home theaters as of the last 2 years and am not expirienced with optical and RCA because I've only worked with HDMI.
Are there any converters that he can buy that could make it work?
