Manufacturers do not supply those cables with the devices as they are relatively expensive and very few actually use them.

yes, you must use the setup menu and assign the optical input to the input you are using. Some receivers have a "input mode" switch. If this one does, you only ned to press it until it says "optical". If you have a owners manual, it will decribe all the settings that need to be made to accomplish what you need.

If you do not have one, I have uploaded one to my website for you do have. It will only be there for a limited time before I remove it, so get it quickly. You need Adobe Reader to read this, so if you don't already have iton your computer you can download it free here:

Here is the link to the owners manual:

I would appreciate a "FixYa!" rating for this free information and manual. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

SOURCE: 8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up

Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

You have to configure your DTV input to use optical audio instead of analog dtv audio (red/white plugs). Input assignment should be described in the manual. Come back to me if you have still problems with it.

SOURCE: Fiber Optic input

No gots. The 3485 is pre-digital stereo-only.

From the manual, page 19

"You may have observed that the HK 3485 is not equipped with digital audio inputs or surround sound decoding. If you prefer the complete home theater experience, you may wish to consider purchasing a fullfeatured Harman Kardon AVR Series audio/video receiver. However, we hope you will find that using a DVD player with the HK 3485 in smaller settings, such as a bedroom or den, surpasses the audio performance of most televisions, including those with onboard stereo speakers."

Want to connect fiber optic audio cable


If you have something providing an optical signal, you will need something such as a receiver that will accept and decode the optical signal. If you are able to make use of the HDMI instead of the optical audio channel, this would be the easiest bet. Otherwise you are looking at needing to get a receiver if you want to have more than 10W of stereo output, or if you simply wish to convert the optical signal into something the TV can understand, any fiber optic to analog converter, such as Amazon item B003OND0N4 (Search that string on Amazon)

Not getting sound thru speakers only tv with hdmi cable connected do I need to connect Digital fiber optic cable too Also able to download owners manual for vsx1017txv


Receivers of this complexity require some patience. I believe the HDMI on this receiver is only for on screen display and video pass through. The audio needs to be separately connected. For digital audio you need to connect either via the digital audio coax or fiber optic input. I replaced my entire 1980s audio system with this unit and have been very happy. It's compact, and I feed it everything via a 35' fiber optic cable (under $20!) tied to a 3-way passive fiber switch (under $10) connected to my computer, a Tivo, and a DVD player. Sounds amazing (make sure to run set up to get the unit to perform with all of your speakers! -- I use an 8 speaker 7.1 surround set up).

I have Samsung 360 Series 3 LCD using Fiber audio cable directly from cable box to television...not getting audio...checked all cable box settings...unsure...Do have alternatives in house to test box and...


As I see it this TV has no optical digital audio input. The connection on the rear of the set is "Digital Audio Out (Optical)", not in. I think you need to run a HDMI cable from the cable box to the TV to get digital audio.

Connecting fiber optic cable with ''SC'' type connectors


Hi,

No it should clip in, however you have the wrong connector on the end, usually these cables come adapters with them to suit you source or TV.

Get your self another cable with adapters, try eBay...!

No Audio


What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.
