Page 18 of https://www.download.p4c.philips.com/files/h/hts3357_12/hts3357_12_dfu_eng.pdf shows this only has a STEREO input which is ANALOG and requires RCA jacks.
So you won't be getting all you expect but hey, we work with what you got.
The TV has Optical but why didn't you try SCART first?
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201511/20151111163447348/ENG-NMDVBEU-1.110.pdf DOES NOT TELL US IF YOUR MODEL HAS THE HEADPHONE JACK so moving on.
If your model has the headphone jack you rustle up a headphone to RCA cable and done.
If not you order up an OPTICAL TO STEREO convertor box (there are some hundred models so I never pick those) then be sure to set the TV to STEREO or PCM and wire that up.
Hi guys, not really a tech savy, so please be gentle
I own a SAMSUNG UE32J4500AW Smart TV and a PHILIPS HOME THEATER SYSTEM HTS3357
The TV has 2 HDMI ports and 1 optical, but the HTS doesn't have an optical port. Now, I can watch the typical TV channels and the sound comes from speakers just fine, but when I try watching in-built TV apps( like Youtube or Netflix) the sound only comes from the in-built speakers, not from my home theather system.How should I make the connections, and what cables should I use?Please, if possible, explain it so I could understand it, again, I'm not a tech savy
P.S. Just to be clear, I want to watch Netflix or Youtube or things like that on my TV, but with the sound coming from my HTS. Thank you!
