I own a TCL LE48FHDF3310TA led tv that does not have an optical out but does have a headphone jack and spidf out (coaxial). I recently purchased the Panasonic SC-HTB20 speakers which require either hdmi arc (the tv also does not support this) or an hdmi in and an optical out. Is there anyway to get the speakers to work with my tv through the two aforementioned jacks? If there is a way, will there be a degradation of sound quality?

Also, according to the speaker manual p 19 I need either hdmi or optical out or both (I'm not sure which of the two) to hookup my blu ray player. The problem is that my blu ray player also only has digital coaxial. Does this mean I need to purchase another converter? Do I have to hookup all of my devices to the subwoofer in order to use the speakers?

Connect your Blu-ray player to the Panasonic SC-HTB20 speaker system's AV IN jack using an HDMI cable, then run another HDMI cable from the AV OUT jack to one of the HDMI inputs on the TV. This, along with the Toslink to Coaxial Digital converter for the TV, will give you the best sound possible from both the TCL LE48FHDF3310TA as well as from your Blu-ray player.

After doing this, will I not be able to use other non optical out devices with the speakers, since the subwoofer only has one hdmi in?

True, but devices with optical outputs are more prevalent (at least here in the USA) so you shouldn't have a problem. smile.gif
