I purchased a Samsung TU8000 Crystal UHD 4K TV. Model Code: UN50TU8000F
When purchasing I was told that I could play the TV sound through my older stereo system.
I purchased a Digital to Analog Audio Converter. It has the Optical cable, power cable to USB port and the converter.
Set up as follows.
Opitcal cable to TV and to Converter.
USB power from Converter to USB port in television.
RCA connectors from Converter to stereo system.
I then turn on the TV and stereo and set TV to Optical and PCM
Unfortunately I am not getting any sound from the stereo. My wiring to the stereo is ok as I checked it with my laptop and was getting sound.
There is a light showing the converter is receiving power and if I unpulug the optical cable from the converter there is a red glow in the end of the cable.
I am not sure if “Optical” and “Digital’ mean the same. When I search for Optical converters, Digital converters seem to be the result.
Any ideas please. I would really like to get this TV playing through my stereo.
Have tried both USB ports.
I think I am way in over my head.
Still not sure if Optical and Digital mean the same in regards to converters.
The specks for the converter I have are as below. I got these off the net. I think it is the same as the manual that came with the converter. The print on the manual was so small I couldn't even read it with a magnifying glass. LOL The diagrams look the same however.
