Quite honestly, I got stumped on this one.
Our television expert and I were debating this one.
I think your question is asking if the analog output carries the processed TruSurround signal, or if only the digital signal carries it (which would not include RCA). The television's speakers do receive a digital signal with the TruSurround, so I'll try to find out what happens when the analog conversion happens to external outputs.
I'm escalating this question a little higher, so I appreciate your patience while I get this answer.
If your question is different, let me know.
I have an LN40A550 TV connected to a old Bookshelf Stereo Amp. with two speakers using the Audio Out R&L jacks on the Rear Panel of the TV.
The User Manual indicates that "TruSurround XT is a patented SRS technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers. TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound experience through any two-speaker playback system,
including internal television speakers. It is fully compatible with all multichannel formats."
My question is whether Trusurround XT sound is being put though the Amp. and Speakers as referenced above? In addition, what would happen in the same scenario if the TV Speaker was turned off?
Thanks in advance for the replies.
