I can't get this TV to output sound to my stereo/speakers. I don't see RCA out anywhere. I tried with the optical cable but no sound. I also tried headphone jack to RCA in on the stereo. I set it to audio out in headphone mode and set the main to "audio system"...no matter what I try I cannot get it to output sound externally.
I also pulled an ipod to RCA in on my stereo receiver to make sure it worked and it does.
My cable box is connected to the TV via HDMI, I also tried netflix 5.1 sound movies and still no output
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.
Here is my stereo, it is kind of old and it says it has "digital optical output" which makes no sense, shouldn't it be an input? why would you do optical out from a receiver to something else, doesnt everything go IN to the receiver? So I have a feeling optical cable is not an option with this current setup, but shouldn't i atleast be able to get sound through RCA cables? I'm not sure where the RCA outputs are, I only see video 1 (the typical red/yellow/white) and component video, red/blue/green white/red....and that headphone jack
I think the TV sound is actually better than what reviews have said, but I still want to be able to output it through my speakers. It hsould just be simple RCA out from the TV to RCA in on the stereo right? Please help
