Digital Audio Output Problem

I have a Pioneer Elite TV and am trying to use a digital sound system. I ran an optical line connecting them, but can't get the TV to switch to digital. In the options menu, the "digital audio output" option is greyed-out, and a message says my current settings will not allow this option. I've checked all my settings, and none will allow me to access the digital audio menu. I have a Direct TV box with an HDMI cable to the TV, then an optical line from the TV to the speakers (a Yamaha YR 1 soundbar). There's no dvd player or tuner. I'm pretty sure the audio feed from Direct TV is digital...

Have Technics SA-EX500 connected to Samsung Smart TV. For tv channels the sound is perfect but when I switch to Netflix or HBOGO the sound is static/cackling.


Suggest connecting via the headphones jack or if available the RCA audio output jacks. If you connect via the headphone jack you will need to adjust the TV volume to a lower setting to avoid distortion/./ The The problem is that the optical output connection is a digital connection and depending on the digital format the Digital to Analog converter may not be a configuration that the audio stream to the stereo required for the tv/vcr in.

How does the audio sound using the Samsung Smart TV internal speakers>

Also under menus/audio/settings you may need to change the Optical output to stereo.

Netflix also has settings that will change the audio stream.

Hope This helps?

No sound thru pioneer equaliser from quatrron tv


There are two way to do this.
1. Connect all your devices individually to the Pioneer receiver. Doing this allows you so have different sound settings for each input. A reason you might want this is that your DVD will need a DTS or Dolby sound setting so that you get the best audio from your DVD, whereas your TV may only be outputting stereo audio. In this case you would set your Pioneer to a stereo setting.
2. Connect your devices to the Sharp display, then connect the audio output of the Sharp to a free audio input on the Pioneer.
Your Sharp LED TV has two ways to do this: a. If you have a digital capable Pioneer sound system, connect using the "Digital Audio Output". You will need a Toslink (Optical) cable for this connection. b. If you only have analog capabilities in your Pioneer sound system, you must use the 3.5mm (1/8 Inch) analog audio output from the Sharp TV to stereo RCA (red and white plugs that are most commonly supplied with home theatre product).

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

(Pioneer PDP-4340HD Plasma with PDP-R04U Receiver) My HDMI input works, however having a computer or Xbox connected via HDMI I do not have the optical output signal thus I can not hear audio through my...


I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.

Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)

Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.
soundoutput002.jpg 7.
Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.

Unable to access digital audio output options


Well you also need to have a digital feed to the television. example: When I run my optical cable from my dvd player to my television directly. I went in to my menu options on my source and enabled this. If you are wanting to run this feed to your a/v amp? You may want to run the original feed from your dvd player to your amplifier directly, you will get a sound quality that is far superior to what you seem to be doing here.
