Audio question re TXP42G30

by WesterlyK / January 2, 2013 4:35 AM PST

I am outputting audio from analogue outputs to my hifi amp to get better sound which is a marked improvement, however the output level seems fixed so that I have to adjust volume on the amp. Is there a setting in the TV system menu which will enable the analogue outputs to be adjusted by using the TV remote?

Ouch. Another one?

I've seen that in many makes so far. There is a reason for this and in case you missed it I'll duplicate a short answer for you.

The reason the output is a fixed volume was that if it was variable then a lower setting may be connected to an amplifier and the owner would complain about the hiss and noise. By fixing the output level this solves that complaint but leads to your issue.

Complaints are not good, limitations are acceptable.

Thanks for the explanation.
What if I fed the analogue from the headphone socket of the TV to the amp, or would that be an inferior signal?
Thanks again.

Tend to call anything not HD a list of words I can't write here.

For the most part all audio out of HDTV is stereo with very few exceptions so that's a good way to connect it. I prefer optical since that eliminates ground or other issues. But use what you have (I won't write about 2 prong AC outlets here.)
