Hi all,

I recently bought a new TV (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XVMKXZY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and am trying to hook it up to my amplifier (https://www.amazon.co.uk/AV2-CD508-Amplifier-Brushed-Stainless-Steel/dp/B0063GC58K/ref=pd_sim_504_5?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=5DKS6X6VY071GWFFW2NC).

I ran into the issue of the TV only having HDMI and Optical output and the amp only having RCA input. To try and solve this issue, I purchased a digital-to-analog adapter (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00KNNSKV0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and optical cable (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071KJR34G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I plugged the optical cable into the TV and adapter, and the adapter into the amp (with a standard RCA cable) and ensured all were powered on. I then tried changing my TVs output to PCM and the "audio out" setting to HDMI/Optical.

As far as I can work out, I've done everything I should have to to get sound through my amp. And yet no sound comes through the speakers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Your TV is probably attempting to output 5.1 through the optical output. Notice on the converter you purchased that is explicitly says it only supports 2.1 PCM. You need to go through the audio options on your TV and see if PCM output is possible. Otherwise you need a different converter that does support 5.1 mode.

Hi there, thanks for the reply.

I have set the audio to PCM, and the problem persists.

Could you recommend a converter that does support 5.1 mode?

Thanks.
