Tested my son's PS3 optical out to the same port with same optical cable on the Pioneer amp and that works.


Am I missing something on the GV47 setup to get the optical audio out working?


If I'm not mistaken, the GV47L optical out only reads sound from the DTV/TV input. Therefore, if you want digital audio from any device that doesn't go through the DTV/TV input, you should go directly from said device to your Pioneer amp. So, video to the tv, audio to the amp. I know somebody will correct me if I am wrong.

I realize this is an old TV. But there has got to be a way to output digital audio at all times! It's frustrating because I basically can't get surround sound if I input full HDMI to the TV. With my old laptop I could do DVI->HDMI->TV and pass audio separately from SPDIF->Sound System. With my new laptop all it has is HDMI out...

Sort of want it to go bad so I will be able to replace it. This note will probably seal its fate and it will go out soon!

Still going strong. Great picture.

I am assuming you can't you run hdmi first to your receiver, then out to the tv?

Mine is still running strong, too.

Quietly inside my head, I hope it'll die soon so I can have a legitimate reason to upgrade to an edge-lit LCD display. smile.gif

But damn, this thing is a beast and has been running absolutely perfectly since day one! It's mounted on my living room wall with the speakers removed, so it looks like a gigantic ("gigantic" to me back when it was released) computer monitor. smile.gif

Mine is still going strong as well.

Was thinking about upgrading to a 60"....any chance I might accidentally buy a new VIZIO set that has a less-performing LCD Panel then the one in this set?

If I can go only but up, then I might buy sooner

Been looking at great deals on a new TV. Many attractive features, but alas my old 47 keeps going and has a great picture. Looking for TIVO set up however.
