Hey guys, im obviously a newb when it comes to this but I just need some simple help.
I just got in my 5.1 Sony surround sound and I was trying to hook it up to my tv last night.
I am running a PS3 to my Samsung TV with hdmi.
I ran all the speakers to the back of my Kenwood receiver and only had a set of red and white audio cables to run from the receiver to the tv.
I did get sound from the 2 front speakers and the sub but the rear speakers are not working.
I researched online and from what I understand, the basic red and white cables only run 2.1 and not full 5.1
So do I need an optical audio cable to run from the TV to the receiver instead of the red and white cable?
also as you can see theres a port that reads "digital audio out optical" on the TV but where exactly would I run the other end into on the receiver?
heres a pic of the back of my TV and receiver....
please show me an example of what exact digital optical wire I need because theres some with different ends on them.
Please help guys and thank you so much!
