SAMSUNG UA46EH5000 no audio output.
by bms234 / July 16, 2015 11:13 AM PDT

Hi! I have this 3 year old TV Samsung UA46EH5000 which has no audio out. So I have connected my cable box audio signal to my marantz 1504 receiver, however my movies are on a hard drive connected to my TV when I play that audio only comes thru the TV not Home Theater. I saw you had the same problem could you solve it? Please assist.

Movie playback is a tar pit of issues. It could be a setting or an audio encoding that can't be passed over optical.

Hi Auzi1978,

Everything sounds right so far. Provided you have the receiver connected to HDMI 2, make sure Anynet+ is turned on for the TV and Bravia Sync is on for the receiver.

Hi Auzi1978,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for UK. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So if you want the most accurate information, here's the Samsung UK portal for support on that product:

Hope this helps you!

I think you can solve this eventually. Ask Pepe7 over in the CNET if you need more help.

Right off the top "pass through" on the receiver doesn't sound right as it does not need to pass a thing. It only needs to get audio and power the speakers.
