We purchased the above tv (new) replacing a Samsung 50" that worked fine through the LG home theatre system, but the Panasonic will not. We bought/tried an optical cable, but cannot seem to get anything to come out of the speakers. Any thoughts? Thanks for your assistance.

Make sure the TV is set up to output Dolby Digital audio, not PCM.

Don't ever make the MISTAKE of buying a Samsung TV..
They consider THIS
normal on a two month old set..

According to the user manual, you have to go into the television's settings, turn Vera Link off and switch the audio from "TV Speakers" to "Home Theater." Otherwise, the optical out is not enabled.

I'm assuming you did that?

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
