I have connected a surround sound system via digital coax cable to the digital audio output on the TV. I still get no sound passing to the surround sound receiver. Anything I'm overlooking? I don't see an analog output, and have no cable box.

look for an optical or "coax" digital audio connect jack. That will transmit all surround sound channels on a single cable. That will go from your TV to your surround sound "receiver's 'digital audio in'
Also - if you are using HDMI the sounds goes over that cable along with the video.
though you have not mentioned about the cabling connections you have done, for the sake of correct
connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You
can select whichever you want.. TO WATCH DVD ON THE TV: ** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand ) **
AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or
"Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV , ** than just switch to
DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD *You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio.. TO LISTEN YOUR TV ON SURROUND SYS. **
AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or
"Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV , ** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input" or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand ) ** than just switch to
respective SOURCE mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver .. *You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..
Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..
There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND.By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well.
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care
The digital audio outputs on televisions sometimes only work when the television is on certain inputs. It does not always work with all hdmi connected devices. I can almost guarantee you that if you connected an over the air antenna to this television and scanned for your free local television channels the digital optical out between the tv and the surround sound would work.Likewise if you have Comcast or one of the other cable carriers that has digital cable you could connect the coax cable directly between the television and the cable wall outlet without the cable box and get sound from the tv's digital audio output to the surround sound.
However there might be a digital audio output television setting you have not changed. Refer to the manual for that or call customer service if necessary.
What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.
If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)
If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.
Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.
I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.
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.
Connect the audio out RCA jacks (white and red) on the TV to the white and red RCA input jacks on the sound bar for analog stereo sound or connect the black digital audio output jack (typically optical) on the TV rear panel to the sound bar's optical digital audio input jack for surround sound. Use an optical cable. There may be some user settings on the TV for audio.
Since your TV only has audio and video input jacks, you can connect those to audio and video output jacks on the VCR. Now connect the coax cable to the RF/ant input on the VCR and you'll have to change channels by using the VCR channel selector.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
No, that's not going to work. Digital output is just that....Digital. Your trying to send a digital into analog....won't work. Your tv don't have red and white audio out. That's what you hook to, but it still wouldn't be 5.1. Your out of luck my friend. The ONLY way you'll get 5.1 out of that T.V. is to get a 5.1 reciever with CO-AX digital input...the SAME as whats on your T.V. You can only hook-up sound to your X-FI with the line in jack using a y-connector and 1/8" stereo plug....and it won't ever be 5.1. It can't that way. Only way to get 5.1 to work on the blaster is with the tosh-link optical input cable. This too is digital, but uses optics to send it. Remember, you are playing with 2 different formats. Analog with your white/red thing you made and then digital. Digital using co-ax or optical tosh-link. Completely different.....as you now know.
