Transferring sound from TV to amplifier

by 1976kjell / July 16, 2010 5:36 AM PDT

I want to transfer sound from my LCD TV to my amplifier

TV: Samsung LCD TV 40" (LE40C635XXE)

The TV dont has RCA out jacks, but it has digital optical uot jack. My amplifier has only RCA in jacks. Som Im gonna order a DAC (Digital Analoug Converter). But as a temporary solution, Ill try some other alternatives.

I can use the jack for headphones. But then I has to remove it each time I need sound from the TV speakers.

I also tried a SCART-cabel to RCA contacts adapter. That solution didnt transferred the sound from the TV, when I was using the DLNA(MP3 files from PC). But it transferred sound from the broadcasting.

So my question is: When using the digital optical out jack with a DAC, would then every sound from the TV, including sound from DLNA, DVD player, decoder, broadcasting, f.ex., be transferred to my amplifier?

I can confirm that the optical output on my B650 set carries audio from all sources, including Media Play.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
