Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Without knowing the model of the tv, I can't say for sure if it is arc enabled or not.
On most all samsung tvs though the ARC port is hdmi 2.
The rca cables won't work because the tv won't have actual audio outputs in that format, those red/white jacks you see are inputs, not outputs.
The optical however should always work, and is and equal quality connection, and actually better in many regards, ***** *****
An optical cable is cheap and easy to get, you can find them at most any electronics shop, or online.
There are no settings necessary to use optical, though it would be advised to go into the tv setup menu and set the tv speakers to off.
Other than that you just set the theater system to the optical/digital input mode, and it should simply work.
Hi I the speaker settings are off. How do you set the theatre system to the optical/digital mode. I went through the settings and don't think I came across that...
I mean the tv speaker settings are off!
Look in the remote for the theater unit, there should be a Source or Input button there, which will cycle through the different input mode (hdmi/tv, optical, coax, analog/aux, etc)
Hi Nathan, Just to let you know got the optical cable worked out settings as you suggested and all good! Many thanks. Deborah
