connect both tv and xbox 1 to kenwood reciever


Jul 31, 2017
Hi, how can I connect both my Sharp Roku LC-43LB481U tv and my XBOX 1 to my Kenwood VR-6050 receiver which has no HDMI ports? Right now I have the tv connected to xbox with an HDMI cable and XBOX connected to the kenwood receiver with an optical cable so xbox has full sound but tv can only use its own speakers
Very simple.
Connect the optical audio output of the TV to the receiver instead of the optical out of the Xbox1.
Check the TV manual on how to use the optical output. You may have to turn it on, turn the TV speakers off, and change the audio output type to get it working.
