Solved! How to connect old yamaha receiver to new smart tv

Jun 13, 2021

I have a new Samsung UE55TU8506 that I am trying to connect to an old Yamaha rx-v550 receiver and I can’t get the sound to work. The receiver has no HDMI but it appears to have 3 or 4 optical ports. Can I use an digital optical audio cable to connect them?
