Surround Sound Help

by raa188 / February 12, 2013 7:44 AM PST

I recently purchased a new Samsung TV (model UN39EH5003FXZA) I go it home and found out that the is no audio out to connect the different systems to the tv. I have gotten the surround sound to work for my cable by connecting the audio cables from the cable box directly to the sound system, but I would really like to connect my Xbox to the surround sound also is this possible. As of now the xbox and cable box are connected to the tv via actual HDMI cables not HD component cable.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In reply to: Surround Sound Help shows this does not have audio output. This model is one where you want a RECEIVER to process your HD audio and pass the video onto the HD TV.

It looks like one of those value models but you should be able to get HD audio with most receivers.
