I'll be getting a 65hu8550
Canton musicbox m
Blu ray player
Paid/cable tv (foxtel here in Australia)
Main concern is the canton music box which I guess I'm using as a sound bar as have very limited space and not much $$$ for anything else atm
The canton musicbox has a digital audio out (optical) to connect with the tv
Does this mean even when watching blu rays and cable and obviously tv, that the sound will automatically play out of the canton music box even though it's not directly plugged into either the blu ray player or foxtel
Thanks to anyone who could answer or explain it
That Canton has an optical in. Not out.
So you would connect that to the TV's optical out.
Connect the Bluray and the Cable TV to the TV's HDMI inputs.
Yes you will get sound from both through the Canton depending on which HDMI input is selected on the TV.
