If your TV has a headphone socket then you can use that.

If not, then because very few TVs are fitted with a basic stereo audio out then you need to use the TV's Digital Audio Out instead. This is probably on an Optical connector.

A lot of receivers have a direct input for Optical. I don't know the VR306 though. So if yours doesn't, then it needs the signal converting from Optical to analogue audio. This is a conversion from light pulses in to a basic stereo electrical signal. This can't be done with a piece of wire or with adapter plugs. It needs some electronics to translate the signal from light to electricity.

The adapters range in price up to 60 Pounds sterling. But here's one for peanuts from Amazon Cable Mountain Digital Optical ToSlink Amazon co uk Electronics

My Samsung tx-s30 TV I get no audio from the optical output.


You may need to either set that output's functionality in the tv's menu system, or what is often times the actual problem with optical audio, is the cable itself. It's a tube of light - if you kink it, that distorts the data, even after you unkink it.

If it's not the optical cable, it's almost always the setting of the device you're feeding the audio INTO. Although you didn't mention so, I'm guessing you're plugging your tv into a stereo receiver. Many times, those receivers need to be "told" which input connector to use for each input label.

How to connect to my Yamaha R-V503 from my HDTV that comes with HDMI and Optical Output? Thanks!


Hi,here is the possible solution......

** you need to connect "Audio Output " as either : "Optic cable output" or "HDMI "connector " of your TV ,
** to "Optic Cable input"
or if you have "HDMI input" of your YAMAHA Receiver
** than just switch to respective mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..You can use "HDMI" connection as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..I recommend you to use Optic cable..

There you go..your Tv sound are on the
YAMAHA receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .
By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV
will come thru your
Receiver

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Can't connect Digital Optical Audio cable to receiver


The TOSLINK optical connector is almost aquare and should be the same on both blue-ray and on the receiver. There are 4 orientation you can try and only one fits. Blue-ray can have the connector installed rotated, but it should be the same connector.
http://gallery.techarena.in/data/513/thumbs/Toslink-and-Coaxial-Connectors.jpg
Looking at the cable at Amazon I can see that it is the correct cable. If it really doesn't fit, maybe you have damaged cable or damaged connector. Try the other end of the cable and/or other optical input on the receiver.
BTW there is also combined analog/optical jack connector. It looks like normal jack socket, but accepts also optical signal. But this is not called Toslink and usually is not used in home theatre devices.

Looking for a diagram on how to hook up my dish network box to my STR-de597


There is a wiring diagram PDF posted on Sony's support site. However it lacks a configuration for a satellite receiver. Without knowing your particular Dish setup, I'd say use the Component video cables and a fiber optic for the audio if you can. Otherwise, the component video and coaxial cables are your next best choice to get decent video and surround capability.
In both cases, you need 2 sets of video cables One for the in and another for the out. You only need 1 fiber optic or coaxial for audio if you do not plan on running the TV speaker system. Use the video 2 inputs for either video type.

Input signals Marantz SR4003


There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

No sound


I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.

Sony DG510 - Not Getting surround sound out of Cable


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.
