If you give the TV's make/model, that would help find a picture somewhere. [Or you can take a pic and post it]

You could also go through the headphone jack with a 3.5mm to RCA Y-adapter.

The easiest is to have everything run into the TV, then run the TV output to the reciever.

LMAO it's in my first post. and thanks! smile.gif

Doesn't seem to have any Component and Composite Outputs. Just Digital Optical and 3.5mm H/P jack.

DAMN IT! maybe that's why the TV's CHEAP.. NO HDMI Audio Return Cable!!!

Can't I just use our HDTV's optical out to the receiver's optical in... and the receiver will output the Cable TV's sounds to the speakers connected to the receiver?

Our Cable (CAT connection??) is directly connected to the HDTV btw.

So much for my reading comprehension. Taking the specs from newegg, it seems they want you to use the optical out... which means you need a receiver with an optical in:


HDMI 3 (2 Rear, 1 Side)
PC Input 1 RGB In (D-Sub 15 Pin)
USB 1 (Side)
Headphone 1 Out (Side)
Composite A/V 2 (1 Side, 1 Rear)
Component Video 2 (Rear)

Digital Audio 1 Optical Out

Other Connectors RF In (Antenna/Cable): 1 (Rear)

PC Audio Input: 1 (Rear)

RS-232C (Control/Service): 1 (Rear)

Can't do wrong with Denon!
The AVR-1312 is their "basic" model, at $299
or just over $500 on Amazon with a all the speakers.

You can Also do it like it did and wire your stuff into your DVD player/speaker system.

EDIT***
As far as I remember TV's will ONLY output Stereo 2.0 even through a Coaxial or Toslink connection, even though the TV will decode 5.1, 7.1 or whatever. it won't send out a digital signal... supposedly its a security thing for copyright?

Of all the HT products I have owned, Denon has performed the best as far as amp/receivers go.
If there is no Cable box, then I do not believe that there would be 5.1 output from the rj-6 coax connection. Most newer receivers will have a simulated surround setting to use.

Any other devices used should be directly connected to the Receiver, and if you want the standard audio input on the TV, then you can run the stereo RCA (red/white) cables to the TV analog in.

I picked up the 700 series and I was quite pleased with certain things and some things not so much.

Here are couple of things that I want to ask you guys who own the machine.

First of all, I have my 50" Sammy mounted on the wall and don't really want to take down everything. I have 3 hdmi slots on the back of the tv and one on the side and put PS3, 360, DVD player on those slot and 1 slot for hook up with Neo HD receiver. Cable TV is set up on the back as well via analog.

This is what I want, I just wanted to plug it into my hdmi on my tv and just want the receiver to put my speakers to work when I have both tv and receiver on. I do not care for the GUI much. However it looks like I have to go through GUI no matter what.. Is there any ways around this? Perhaps via optical digital audio cable?

My old analog yamaha worked fine without any problems before...
I'm stomped at the moment and any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance guys.

Eh? So no TV sounds? I don't get it xD

if your speakers are nice it's worth it getting a nice receiver to match, denon or onkyo are good value. example
otherwise, this would only need an optical cable from the tv. can't attest for the quality of sound though. :s

you can output the audio from the 3.5mm HP jack on the tv into an analog receiver or connection like rca input; OR over digital audio SPDIF optical cables (preferred cause it's a higher quality bit rate, etc.) it's also one cable which makes it real simple

your tv should have the option under audio settings to turn on/off tv speakers if you want to use your amplified speakers

If your speakers are junk, its not going to be worth buying a new receiver. If they're good, then a receiver would be about the only way you'll get it to work (unless you just buy an amp, but a receiver is well worth it).

You'll want to go optical out from the TV, to the optical in on the receiver to get digital signals (if you plan to use surround sound). If you're just doing 2.0 or 2.1, you can use standard RCA cables via the analogue audio out on your TV, and any old receiver / amp.

A few people don't seem to understand recievers in this thread.

If you get a receiver, EVERYTHING should be plugged into the receiver. All your DVD players, speakers, cable box, playstation, ect. After you hook up every device you want on the TV to the receiver, you hook the TV up to the receivers output (preferably HDMI). From this point on, you use the receiver to do everything, and the TV's remote is only used to turn the television on.

If you don't want to do that, just get a speaker AMP, and hook that up to the RCA out or whatever from your TV.

P.S: This is still how most speakers are today. The speaker cables provide power as well as the sound signal.

I tend to use my TV for all the inputs, and only send the audio out to the receiver. My TV handles putting out Dolby Digital via optical though. If my TV was different, I would definitely do it that way though. smile.gif

However, for the OP....it fully depends on his speakers, and his future plans.

you could just get an amp, but few have digital connections in the cheapo price range
