Hi
I am trying to connect a Sony DAV FC8 to a TCL Roku TV
The sound from the Home theater & the video on TV works for the DVD player
However the audio from TV can't be heard through the home theater. The FC8 has RCA cables only. How to connect & set audio out from TV to the FC8

What you're trying to do won't happen.

There is a problem with TCL Roku TV's and ANY AV receiver on the 'handshake' that they're supposed to
automatically perform.

I'VE SCOURED THE INTERNET FOR OVER A MONTH, AND NO ONE CAN SEEM TO COME UP WITH A SOLUTION.

I've contacted TCL, and unless you speak Mandarin Chinese, you're pretty S O L. The folks @ Roku are "just paid to sit there and provide no actual service". To them, it's a paycheck, PERIOD.

Costco's Concierge service was just as useless at addressing the issue.

No matter what setting I've performed, incantations/chants/spells I've cast, IT JUST WON'T WORK.

It's a known issue, but neither the manufacturer, software/hardware vendors won't provide a fix.
