46L780A12 Digital Optical Audio Output

Shouldn't I be able to listen to the TV audio thru my Samsung Surround sound speakers via the TV's digital audio output?

Hello wtpage,

 

In order to listen to the audio from your TV through your receiver, connect the optical audio cable to both the TV and receiver, then press "AUX" on the Samsung remote until "Digital 1" is displayed. This should allow your receiver to receive a digital audio signal from the TV. After doing this please follow these steps to adjust the audio output settings on the TV:

 

  1. Turn the TV on.
  2. Press "Menu" on the remote.
  3. Select "Audio".
  4. Select "Digital Audio/SPDIF" and press "Enter".
  5. Select "Raw" then press "Enter"
  6. Press "Exit" to close the menu.
Regards,
Zac

Hi! My name is Julie and I am having a similar problem, but I have a JVC instead of a Samsung receiver.

 

I did the steps you suggested, but when I got to this step:

  • Select "Digital Audio/SPDIF" and press "Enter".

The option "Digital Audio/SPDIF" is greyed out and it won't let me select it.

 

The audio is now coming from the speakers fine, but there is a delay in the audio from the TV.

 

The model number for the JVC reciever is TH-M505

 

Thanks!

Hello Julie,

 

Is this occurring on all inputs or only on a specific input?
