Samsung 46" LCD - Internet sound to receiver.

What connections do I use to get sound through my receiver when I buy movies through their widgets? Also, I need sound when I connect my latptop via HDMI? None of the jacks are clearly marked.

gfair714,

What audio input options do you have on your receiver?

Also, which model TV do you have?

The TV is model LN46875DU1FXZA 240hz. My receiver has 3 open inputs and all of them are RCA jacks. Standard audio/video inputs. It's an ONKYO 701 series receiver.

The outputs on the TV are what I need help with.

Any advise is appreciated.

gfair714,

I think you mean the LN46B750.

If so, here's a screenshot of the actual port to use for computers with HDMI:

Technically, any HDMI port should work, but you might also want to edit the name of the input on the panel from "----" to "PC".

For the audio out to your receiver, you can use RCA stereo, or use the optical audio outs listed here:

Does that help?

Got it working. It was too simple. Minor adjustment on the TV settings.

Thanks for your help!
