with a older panasonic tv that I have just replaced. I have conected all the leads but cannot get the sound out of the yahama when I am using the TV and DVD and Recorder together. If I use the DVD to watch tv through the tvall is ok but not the TV through the recorder and Yamaha. I have a lead from tv HDMI2 to Y and also an optical lead. Is it a problem with the older recorder or am i missing something.

Hi! My name is***** am the expert who will be assisting you today.

You will need to run a cable from the Audio Out port of the TV to the Yamaha, to hear the audio for what you are watching at all times.

The TV will need to have an Audio Out or Digital Out, or similar port on it to do this.

What is the audio output please

Most TVs will have an Audio Output port on them.

If you let me know the model number of your TV I can check if it has one.

There is no model number in your first email.

Sorry yma txt gx 800b

That isn't a valid Panasonic TV model number. Perhaps it is TX-40GX800B?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
sorry typo

The TX-40GX800B has an Optical Audio Out port on the rear, so you will need to connect this port to the Yamaha, so that you can hear the audio for what you are watching at all times.
