Sound out

In reply to: TV Sound to Stereo Speakers...

Did you set the 'sound out' to 'on' or 'Speaker' under audio in the menu set to 'off' or whatever it is called on your tv. There should be No sound coming from the tv speakers.

No option..

In reply to: Sound out

There is no option to do that in the Menu. There isnt even an option called Audio. The only options there are is Picture, Preferences, Time, Setup.

Nope, the only button on my remote of that type is the Menu button, but i went through all the options and looked for ANYTHING to turn off the internal speakers and there isnt anything...ive seen this before on TVs but it must not be on this one for some odd reason...
