It can, especially if you do not have an optical device connected to it. You should consult your manual to ensure the unit is properly connected and operated. If you do not have your manual, please Google search manufacturer make, model and the word manual. If one is available, you will find it in the search results.

If you can provide the manufacturer make and model information in your next question, perhaps the volunteer Fixya experts can provide more assistance.

How to hook up sound bar. Where are the audio out jacks?


after looking into the TC-p42u2 i noticed it does Not have audio out put in form of RCA instead this model uses Digital Audio out, this connection is located to the lower left of your Antenna and to the right of your Video In 1 ports... you will need a Optical Cable and an analog to digital converter to connect your sound system if it does not have ability to accept digital. My tv has same issue and i have to use something like this analog to digital converter

Connected Auvio Bluetooth speaker to Samsung LN-S3241D TV via digital optical wire and digital-to-analog audio adapter; the sound plays great but the volume can not be adjusted with the speaker controls,...


Check your menu on the Samsung to switch audio out selector. You might have to use ANALOG outputs instead.
you could then eliminate digital to analog adapter.
Analog out uses the RCA PLUGS.

I just bought a LG blue tooth capable surround sound. The instructions say I need to hook the cord to the optical in connection, but my tv doesn't have it. Is there an adapter I can get?


If your tv does not have an optical audio output you can get an analog to optical adaptor. Radio shack . Ebay , do a google search. Check your sound bar for an analog input. Hope this helps.

I have audio cables going from HD 61g887 jvc tv, to my phillips surround sound system under aux but it is not giving me sound?


hi
you didn't mentioned the model number of your surround sound system, for a better solution its important. any why try the following.

if you are connected the analog audio output of your tv to the system using RCA cable, then go to the setup of the surround sound system and change the input assignment setting from digital to analog.
If your connected the digital output of your tv to the digital input of your surround system using optical cable then, goto the setup of your surround system and change the input assignment to digital (optical) input.


if u need any further assistance fell free to contact through fixya

Need help connecting to surround sound to a vizio sound bar


hi,
did u mean connecting the sound bar to ur tv.
u didn't mentioned the model number of ur sound bar.
any how ur tv has only coaxial digital audio out. no analog audio out. the sound bar may have one digital audio input (optical digital input) and 2 analog inputs. if it has coaxial input it may be very easy.find is there, if not u cant link these devices.
if u are using a satellite receiver then u can connect the optical audio out to ur sound bar's optical input or the analog audio output to any one of the analog audio input.
ok

Yamaha rx-v365 plugged in the hdmi from cable box


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.

Optical audio from cable box to receiver


Do you mean the optical digital audio output from the cable box? This is so you can listen to Digital sound from cable tv broadcast, First go to the cable box remote control, select setup or menu to find audio, then select audio output, check digital audio, not mts or stereo, this should enable to optical output instead of the typical 2 channel red and white left and right RCA analog audio outputs, sometimes different cable boxes vary, but most require you to enable the optical output via the method listed above.

Optical output, no sound!


Have you selected Optical output from the audio setup screen of the TV? That needs to be selected to transfer TV audio to the optical out of the TV.

No digtal audio with fiber optic jack


hook up a digital audio coaxial cable to it (not the old ones with the pin in the middle that always bends, the new one that looks like an rca cable except its orange instead of red/white/yellow). If it still doesnt play sound then your receiver is probably in analog mode. If it does play sound then its the fiber optic input.
