I have a LG 47'' LED Cinema 3D HDTV 47LM4600, using a Radio Shack AUVIO® 6-Ft.Optical Audio Toslink™ Cable on the digital audio out port into a Radio Shack Digital Audio to Analog Converter (Model: DA-710 Catalog #: 15-093), and outputting the sound into a Radio Shack 3-Ft. Stereo Patch Cable, Dual-RCA Plugs to Dual-RCA Plugs (Catalog #: 42-487) to connect to an Onkyo TX-820/800 receiver. I made sure the converter was set to optical, and plugged in to the power strip, and regardless of which of the Video 1/Video 2 Record/Play ports I plug the RCA cable into, and which Video setting I select on the receiver, the audio won't come through. I've tried turning the TV speaker off in settings on the TV, and using both Auto and PCM on the digital audio out setting on the TV for all the receiver plug/setting combinations, and nothing is coming through to my speakers.(American Acoustics, 2 box speakers D4550E, analog/standard stereo wire).
What I want to accomplish is using the stereo speakers for the TV's audio. Do I have everything hooked up right? Do I have the settings right? Or should I have different equipment entirely?
Thank you for your help!
