You will want to look on the back of the Philips TV and see what audio out it supports, in most case you would go from the TV audio RCA output to any input on the back of the receiver except PHONO. If you require further assistance please feel free to email me at askOnkyo@us.onkyo.com, Thanks, JT
Obviously the digital optical connector was never connected to the vintage Kenwood.
It sounds like your Vizio is NOT the actual root SOURCE of the TV audio but it's coming from a Cable Box which DOES have various audio outputs. Connect it as you would any other analog audio source (except don't use the PHONO input).
Have you gone into the TV's menu to make sure that the audio outoput is not set to "variable"?
On my Sony I have the option to set the audio output as "fixed or "variable"
make sure its set to fixed
if that's not it try a different input on your receiver. you can use anything EXCEPT PHONO.
Lastly on my Denon receiver I have to specify how each input should get its signal if you are using an optical cable then you may have to go into the menu and tell it to look for a digital signal not an analog one.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
