I recently received a new Phillips 55PFL5705DV/F7 LCD TV and am trying to configure my older Sony HT-4850DP surround sound system. TV has 4 HDMI inputs, 2 component inputs, USB, PC/VGA, Ethernet, and Digital Audio Coax Out.
I have my cable service supplied Motorola cable box connected to the TV using an HDMI cable. I have a digital coax cable running out from the TV to the digital coax IN port on the Sony receiver.
Is this correct, or should I run the digital coax out from the Moto cable box into the Sony receiver instead?
On my old Toshiba DLP TV, there were VAR L/R audio outputs which allowed me to control volume through the TV. The Phillips has something called EasyLink. From what I understand, EasyLink is used to synch up multiple EasyLink-compatible devices. The EasyLink option is configurable under the sound menu item in the TV, but I am not certain this is in any way similar to VAR audio out. Anyone familiar with EasyLink as it relates to controlling sound?
