The setting to output sound through TV speakers vs. Home Theater speakers (for HTS sources such as Blu-ray disc, DVD, FM, etc.) is made during the HDMI handshake between the Home Theater System and the HDTV.
If you want sound from HTS sources such as Blu-ray disc, DVD, FM, etc. to be output from your Home Theater Speakers please change the following setting:
Home -> Settings -> Advanced Setup -> Audio -> Audio Output
Change the Audio Output to “Speakers” or “Off” depending on your HTS model number.
If you want sound from TV sources such as Antenna, Cable, Satellite, IPTV box, etc. to be output from your HTS, do the following:
Note: The S/PDIF jacks on your TV & HTS could be labeled S/PDIF, Digital Audio, Optical Audio, TOSLINK or Digital Coaxial. They are all the same digital audio format which is S/PDIF = Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format.
In general, you would connect from a RCA jack to a RCA jack using a Digital Coaxial Cable or from an Optical port to an Optical port using an Optical/TOSLINK cable.
What should I do if I have a mismatch of S/PDIF ports?
TV has Optical OUT but HTS has Digital Coaxial IN:
Use an Optical to Digital Coaxial converter.
