Hey everyone, first time posting.
So I bought a Vizio M3D0KD a couple days ago, and I've been struggling to connect it to my surround sound system, a panasonic pt950. The problem is, I've been connecting this system to my old tv with the red and yellow RCA cables (not actual surround sound, I know). The Vizio I bought only has optical audio out, something that the audio receiver does not have (only RCA and HDMI).
My question is, what is my best and most inexpensive option to get this system working? If possible, I'd like to finally use actual surround sound.
Should I just buy a new audio receiver, and if so, will it be compatible with all my speakers? (the pt950 has 3 wired speakers and 2 wireless speakers; the white and blue wire ones).
Or is there a better solution that I'm not seeing?
I really appreciate the help, as I'm not very knowledgable about this subject.
