Question about JVC RX-DV31SL Receiver

Optical audio not working

I am trying to get optical audio in from my Samsung 5087 DLP TV. I can see red light coming in from the cable from the tv, when I plug it into the JVC the display recognizes that it is hooked up but no sound comes out. I have it set to Digital input and TV for digital in. Any suggestions? Are the two devices compatible? Thanks!

    After further testing, I believe the problem is that if you have HDMI in to TV from cable box, then optival out is blocked for some reason. When I switched to the built in TV tuner the optical worked fine on the JVC.

Connecting Samsung TV to Sherwood Newcastle R 865 Receiver using optic cable.


The problem might lie with the TV itself. The optical input might be switched off. You can check if the signal is coming out of the TV. With the optical lead plugged into the TV and the TV on. But not plugged into the Amp. You should see a red light come out of the unconnected end. If you don't see that the socket is switched off at the TV end. It might come under sound in the menu, or options, or digital audio output. Or a combination leading to the other!
If you see an option for Dolby Digital, set that to on as well. Some HD TV channels use Dolby, but others don't. It will only come on with certain films and TV shows though, it should switch your receiver to the Dolby setting, just like DVD and Blue Ray discs do.

How do i connect a technika TKSBSE213 soundbar to a telly


Does your TV have a Digital optical port? It's a cable that sends a red light source. That is actually how you're suppose to hook up a soundbar. digital optical cable Bing images Straight forward. Plug and play. If you're TV doesn't have an optical port, as I know your soundbar does then you have to use a stereo Y Cable. 3.5mm to Red/White. Sound bar will have 33% the power going this way as opposed to an optical cable. Aux Audio Out has a itty bitty amp pushing power. Purpose of the Digital optical Cable is a light source.

Sound from my plasma TV does not work on AVR 235 via optical cable


So much can go wrong. WARNING!! NEVER LOOK STRAIGHT INTO THE LIGHT FROM AN OPTICAL AUDIO OR VIDEO SYSTEM. The optical output could be not working (try switching it on and look if you see a red light) The optical cable can be broken inside) see if the brightness of the red light is almost the same as what is coming out of the TV. Point it to a white paper to view.
The optical input from your receiver can be defect or dirty. The optical protocol can be wrong or the systems are not compatible.
If it ever worked, the most chance is the cable is defect.
Otherwise follow the chain and read what the manuals have to say about how and what.

Does the pioneer sx315 receiver work with the samsung led?


From memory, this amp does not have HDMI.
If this is the case, use an optical fibre cable for your connections.(Audio)
And if you want every thing to run through your amp you will also need to use component video cables (red/green/blue)
I would suggest the following.
Blue Ray to TV with HDMI.
HD Reciever to TV with HDMI.
TV AUDIO OUT to AMP with Optical Fibre.
This way, whatever is displayed on the tv, the sound will come throught the amp.
Hope this helps.

Connecting HT/Cable box to TV?


Get a fiber optic (Toslink Optical) cable to plug into the TV's optical OUT between the red/white RCA audio and the spot where you plug in your cable TV, to the Optical IN on your HT-DS610. This way all audio coming in to your TV from any source goes directly to your hi-fi in all it's splendor.

Have fun!
