Solved How to connect surround sound receiver to TV?

Hello everyone,

This question probably sounds simple due to the title, but I think it's a bit more complex than you might think. I just purchased a new Samsung LED TV; model number UN32EH4003. I also have an LG surround sound receiver (the model number of which I don't have on-hand right now.) laying around which I wanted to use with the TV.

Here's the problem; the TV doesn't have any analog audio out connectors or optical out connectors, so I'm not sure if there is a way to connect it to the TV in order to use the surround sound receiver with all the inputs on the TV.

How would I do this, or is it even possible with this certain TV?

Thank you in advance,

Comguy

Looking at the specs of that TV, it doesn't have any sort of audio output. I don't even see a headphone jack on that thing. I would say there is no way to connect the TV's audio to your surround system.

Here's what CNet's review has to say about that model -

The only other difference between the two is that the EH4003 lacks the optical digital audio output found on the EH4000. That means its built-in HDTV tuner, used for receiving over-the-air antenna and unscrambled QAM cable signals, cannot pass audio (both TVs lack analog audio outputs). If you're one of the few who actually uses the TV's tuner (as opposed to, say, a cable or satellite box) then you won't be able to hook any kind of external audio device to it; you'll have to rely on the TV's built-in speakers.

I don't use the TV for any sort of television viewing. I use it for gaming through the component inputs and the HDMI inputs. I'm not sure if this will affect it at all but I thought I should mention it.

Thanks,

You could take the audio outputs from your gaming console and run those into the surround receiver.

That won't work. I have some game consoles that run via HDMI, and the surround receiver does not have HDMI inputs for devices. On the site I ordered the TV from, it stated that there was analog audio outputs, so I will return the TV for a refund and purchase the EH4000.

Thanks,

That would be your best bet. You could fiddle around with converters and such but it would be much easier to just get the model with audio outputs.
