Digital optical connection is creating any sound

I have recently purchased a digital optical cable to run from my samsung home theatre into one of my LCD TV/PS3/HD PVR, however, I am able to get no sound from the system. The connection seems to be correct and I have switched the Auxillary audio to Digital, but nothing, Any suggestions?

Re: digital optical connection is creating any sound

Check to ensure the Home Theater is outputting the digital audio via the optical cable.

You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

Gurus, I just bought Samsung Home Theater System which i connected to my Hitachi TV with HDMI cable. I have a Optical Cable going from HT to my TV Optical port. I have another connection from my cable

On the remote control for the Samsung Home Theater System look at the bottom left to a button that says "MODE", those moods change the sound each speaker gives off. if that doesn't work, you might need new wiring because there are other wires that are more durable than the ones that come with it, much better too.

TV Audio won't come through the Home Theatre Speakers

why it doesn't come. just connect the RCA cable to the output pins of TV and connect them to the input female jacks of home theatre receiver. or if the TV has optical out and the home theatre reciever had optical in. thats the best option. just connect one optical cable to enjoy the 5.1 sound. tell me clear problem if u r nt solved.

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V

Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)

Do you have HDTV with Digital Coax out or Optical Out? If you do you can connect your surround system rear port mark Optical In from your HDTV Optical out. Tosh link fiber cable..

Now if you don't have HDTV with Digital out nor a HDTV but CRT set with Analog Stereo output you can connect using RCA left/right cables to bottom of the unit where you have HDMI, Component and Audio out. This is where you would connect your TV too. For audio playback using the AUX mode.

Hooking up home theater

Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
