I wanted to connect TV Ears, only to discover there are no audio output ports, only a digital audio output. I didn't want to have to order the Alternate Installation Kit, but I guess that's the only option?
Well, you've probably purchased a new T.V. by now, but I thought I'd share my input for others that may have this issue arise in their life.Using a Optical to Analog (RCA) converter does the trick quite nicely, without breaking you. Converter

Re: Can't connect external audio
When buying a new TV it is important to make sure that it has the features you require. For some of the new sets a compatible adaptor is required for analog outputs and inputs. If the option is not present, then it is not able to be used!

There are a couple different ways.you ca go
On the back of your tv you could have either,
1 - Optical Audio output
2 - RCA jack audio output ( Red and White color ports )
3 - 1/4 inch auido jack. audio out
When you find the jack that matches up to the deice you want to connect hook them up ad then go into your TV settings menu and turn on External speakers
This television only outputs digital audio called PCM / Dolby Digital, Fiber Optic so you may need an amplifier that has a digital in port (if the speakers are rca red and white cable plugs then the amplifier needs rca output ports). Then you would need to connect the amplifier to the speakers
. Unless the speakers have a digital in port which I am unsure on ,. The digital out audio port on your tv uses a fibre optic digital audio cable..
page 13 of the user manual shows this digital output port.
Depends on your external sound system... If it supports HDMI, then just connect an HDMI lead between the TV and the external amp. If you don't have HDMI, look for two RCA/Phono connectors (small circular connectors) on the back of the TV (should be coloured red & white) and connect these to the external sound system. Finally, if you don't have either of these look for a 32 pin scart socket (rectangular with a bit sticking out) and get a scart to phone cable. Plug the scart plug into the TV and connect the Red & White output leads to your external system - hope that helps :-)
Just connect an other speaker in place, and make sure that the speaker inside the TV has no fault. If sound comes out from the externally connected speaker is OK; be sure that the speaker of your TV is OK, and the fault with with its audio output section circuit. Check and replace the damaged component/s at the audio output stage circuit. Contact any service technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google
Hello The jack you describes here "Digital Ouput Device To" means, you can connect these jacks to the output of a digital device, such as DVD or so. It is meant for to get signal into the TV, not ot out. HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface] is a type of connection, which the TV an be connected to any HDMI device from outside. Both the above said are, signal in to TV connections. Not out. If you want to connect this TV to any amp or any other external audio devices; look for any audio out option is there.
Carlos, I just bought an LCD tv too. To connect external speakers to mine I had to buy some high end 5 channel pc speakers and connect them through the headphone jack(I know how stupid that sounds considering we spend $1000.00 on a TV and thats my only option for external speakers.I looked at your owners manual and didn't see a headphone jack though so you may have to opt for speakers that plug in with through the usb port. Some new tvs won't support external speakers unless you use complete home theater surround sound system which will connect through the rca cables (red,white)
There are many options here. Most HDTVs today have analog audio and digital audio output jacks. You can use RCA audio cables or a 3.5mm connector, whichever your HDTV has to connect the analog stereo output of the TV to any number of devices such as a stereo/amp which has speakers attached. You could also connect an FM transmitter to the TV and send the audio wirelessly to a nearby FM radio, boombox, portable etc. Most HDTVs today have a digital audio output, typically optical, which uses a digital audio cable ($15) to connect to a surround sound receiver. You can also connect the stereo analog output jack on the TV to a 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver speaker combo to get wireless audio outside, in a swimming pool and so forth, all around the house using wireless speakers. These setups usually cost around $150 or so. Look for the jack on the TV labeled AUDIO OUT and see if it is the white and red 2 jack ports or the smaller 3.5mm single jack port. Adapter cables are available at Radio Shack for around $10 should you need them. So you see the options are almost endless.
I had what may have been a similar problem and even talked to Westinghouse to see what I was doing wrong. Woman suggested there was a problem with the audio output port and suggested I exchange tv for another one. When the new one had the same problem, I discovered that to get audio out requires the volume to be turned way up on the tv (set speaker preference to external only if you don't want sound from tv speakers as well). If you have a digital optical connection on both the tv and the home theater, the sound output is independent from the tv setting and is easier to work with.
