Have a non- ARC HDMI Samsung tv with two HDMI ports, and no coax, optical, or headphone ports. Want to listen to tv through new Samsung Home Entertainment Center that has HDMI, optical in port, and Aux RCA in. Reading maybe an HDMI converter would wirk but dont know which exact ones would work to get. Anyone, help please!
Where you get your TV programming from? Directly connected antennae, or TV cable/SAT box?
In former, you're out of luck (unless you get external TV tuner box). In latter case, what are their model numbers?
There is no kind of HMDI converter that will let you connect a TV without any audio outputs of any kind to an external audio system. You can add an HDMI input selector with audio extraction to provide an audio output for the external sources connected to the TV. That won't work for the internal TV tuner if you use that.
Your only option for that would be to connect a speaker to line level converter to the wires that go to the speakers inside the TV.
