If you want the best quality then the answer is to use the TV's Optical output. This sends a signal in digital form as a series of light pulses. This isn't directly compatible with the stereo input of a sound bar. There's no kind of cable or plug adapter you can buy that converts this just through a piece of wire. So you would buy an Optical to Stereophono/RCA converter that can translate light pulses into a stereo signal. Here's a link to one from Amazon. It is less than 10 Pounds sterling
Which model TV and which model sound bar do you have? Some Sansui TVs have a coaxial digital audio port and a 3.5 mm headphone port; this is true for the SLED2480. Some of the smallest Sansui TVs may only have a headphone out option or no audio output. These jacks will be on the back or the side depending on the model. For some Sansui models, these will be easiest to see when you put the TV on its face (on a clean soft surface) and look next to the base of the TV.
The Philips CSS2123B/F7 has a digital coaxial port, a digital optical port and RCA analog inputs on the back of the unit. It also has a 3.5 mm input on the right side for connection with auxiliary devices (like a headphone out). Other models may have different ports.
Thus the cables you need will depend on the specifics of your devices; similarly the locations of the ports will depend on the models. If your TV only has a headphone out and the soundbar has analog audio inputs, you will probably want a 3.5 mm to RCA audio adapter. There are several options depending on whether you want to use an 3.5 mm audio cable or an RCA audio between the TV and the soundbar. (Pick a cable and then get the adapter to plug into either the TV (M 3.5 mm to RCA FF) or the soundbar (2 RCA MM to 3.5 mm F).) There are 3.5 mm M to RCA MM cables as well.
If your TV has an digital audio outputs, get the correct cable (optical or coaxial) and connect that to the port on the sound bar and TV.
Please add a comment with the model of your TV and soundbar for specific information. I hope this helps.
Do you have a optical/coaxial input on your system? Eg: cable, TV.I use a optical input on my Yamaha ( cable, satellite ). Look to see if there is a optical/coaxial output on your pvr, there should be. Use ether the optical or coaxial output from your pvr and connect it to the cable (satellite ) optical/coaxial input on your receiver. The manual that came with your Shaw PVR should explain how. You will get 5.1 surround if available on certain channels.I prefer optical over coaxial myself, but they both work well.If you don't have optical/coaxial inputs on your receiver, you will have to use RCA cables, analogue out on cable box, to tape input or aux on your receiver. You will not get surround sound, just stereo. But it's better than nothing.
Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.
Hi! It would just be easy. Just prepare RCA cables and connect the cables to the tv and satellite receiver. Link the TV and satellite audio output to the BOSE audio input. Good luck and have a good one!
To get DTS and Dolby Digital sound you will need one of a few types of digital cable to connect the digital output on a device to a digital decoder or receiver. One type of digital cable is the SPDIF Coaxial, which is a single cable that can transmit high quality digital audio. Another cable for digital sound is the Toslink Optical cable which uses plastic or glass fibres depending on the cost to transmit light which is then decoded into sound information. With optical cables the signal can break if the cables are bent too much. The other cable that can be used is the HDMI cable, this is used to stream HD video and HD sound formats such as DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD, these can of course stream the standard Dolby Digital and DTS signals, but for what it is worth I would recomend a SPDIF Coaxial cable. These can be found at hi-fi shops and places such as Maplins or Ebay. They are also cheaper than the other digital cables and more reliable than optical ones. Any type will do as long as you have a decoder or home receiver which can convert the digital information into sound. Infact you can use an RCA composite cable and connect that into the coaxial ports at either end. This will transmit the digital information, but not as good quality as a proper coaxial cable, but you still get the DTS and Dolby Digital formats with full surround sound. I hope that this helps.
If you open your sound card properties, you have to tell the hardware (soundcard) to use the SPDIF. For some models of Realtek sound cards, it requires and adapter that you plug into the port and offers optical or coaxial. I could not find anything stating that your PC requires it but I dont have the serial number of your PC to find if you have a different version of the soundcard used in your model notebook.
Also, make sure you are using the proper SPDIF cable to your reciever. This is a digital connection so it requires a 3.5mm to standard male coaxial (RCA) cable. If you are using one, then you just need to make sure that your soundcard knows to ouput audio through the SPDIF port.
Hope that offers some help. If you need further assistance, let me know!
Did you try it on BOTH the SAT and Video 2 optical ports? Still not working? Could be the Optical cable is bad.
Does your Cable Box also have a coaxial digital ouput? It looks just like a standard RCA connector but says Digital somewhere near it. Try one conductor of a standard audio cable from it to the "DVD" coax connector. Select DVD to hear it.
If it still doesn't work jump into the Cable Box setup to make sure it's output is set up properly.
I would recommend using the coaxial digital option if you have it.
1) The cable isn't special or expensive like the optical cable is; a garden-variety RCA cable works just fine.
2) You have virtually unlimited distance to work with in the house.
3) You don't have to be so darned careful with it as with optical.
Try using a different cable for starters, regular rca, another optical or coaxial.
If the optical works, then its a cable problem.
If the coaxial works(and another optical doesnt), then its a cable/jack problem.
If the RCA works(and the rest don't), then its a problem with the digital output.
Try blowing into the holes, and if nothing works and you can't find any other advice, contact Pioneer.
