My son has a Samsung LN32D403 TV with no audio output or headphone jack. It does have two HDMI connections. He would like to connect it to his integrated amp, a Yamaha AX-550. What does he need?
Thanks for your help.
After spending half an hour on the phone with my son in Austin discussing the problem, he never told me his TV was hooked up to a cable box and the cable box had audio out rca jacks. His roommate figured it out. Sometimes I think kids today don't have any sense or patience in hooking up A/V related things. Getting that stereo hooked up right away has always been a priority my entire life. It just seemed like common sense to me. Anyway, thanks for the replies.
That TV should have an optical audio output. You will have to use that
and if the receiver has no optical input, you'll have to get an optical
to line-out (RCA jacks) converter. They are cheap, under $20.
How old is the TV? is one of the HDMI also an ARC (audio return channel)? This is available on new-ish TVs. Does he have a Blu-ray Player? Does it also have ARC and analog out? If yes to ALL of the above, then he can get sound from the TV to the BD Player (via HDMI)then analog to the amp. I don't know if that will apply to him, but that's what I do
Otherwise, he may be screwed. :-(
