Question

How do I connect my home theater system (HTS) or surround sound system (SSS) to the TV?

Answer

  • The TV has a digital audio output (coaxial) and a Scart connection, and does not have an RCA audio (red and white) output. The audio equipment must have a digital audio/digital coax/spdif input or Scart connection in order to work with the TV.
  • If you have an RCA audio (red and white) equipment without a Scart or a digital audio connection, you can also purchase a Scart-to-cinch cable. Plug the Scart plug into the 'EXT1' connection at the bottom rear of TV and match the red and white audio cinch cables up to the input on your audio system. (click here for connection)

Connection using digital audio / digital coaxial / spdif input

  1. Unplug the TV and audio equipment before you make any connection.
  2. Use a digital audio cable to connect one end to the 'DIGITAL AUDIO' coaxial output at the bottom rear of the TV.
  3. Connect the other end to the digital coaxial input of the audio equipment.
  4. Turn on the TV and select a program.
  5. Switch on the audio equipment and select the input to which the TV is connected.
  6. Adjust the volume on the audio equipment to hear the sound from the audio equipment loudspeakers.
  7. If you do not wish to hear the sound from the TV, press the volume down button on the remote control to turn the TV's volume down.

Note: The TV will output digital audio from program received from all inputs.
