How is your TV sound configured? If it puts out "bitstream" instead of PCM, it will work with an AVR which has a Dolby decoder and not Nova (or any other DAC like it).

My Samsung t.v. doesn't allow me to adjust the output to PCM. It also doesn't have RCA audio outs, it has 1 mini out. What I have done to compensate for these deficiencies is I'm running the TOSLINK audio out from the t.v. to the TOSLINK audio in on my NAD a/v/ receiver. I then run a rca cable from the receiver's preamp output to the Nova's aux input. So when I'm watching regular t.v. it goes through the NAD. When I'm watching the blu ray it goes from the blu ray to the Nova via TOSLINK. And when I'm listening to my CD player it goes directly to the Nova via the digital input. The other benefit of the NAD is it doubles as a tuner for the few times I need t listen to the radio.
I really love what the Nova has done for my music listening, main reason I bought it.
