Re: Silly TV setup

I'm doing good.

College was 10 years pal.

Ok I'll try that. Seems to make sense.

Thanks.

Ok I connected things in.

That little digital / analog converter has a nice little hum to it.

Anyhow it doesn't work.

Where exactly would I plug the digital coaxial in the TV?

Make sure that your TV audio is not set to output 5.1. That converter will only convert 2-channel digital audio.

Switched from surround to mono. Also a stereo option.

Shoot. After looking at your picture, it looks like you only have an optical digital audio output, which means that digital coax cable won't work. You will need an optical cable to go from the connector circled in this picture to the optical input on the converter.

I'll see what I have floating around.

Want a coaxial cable?

The link that you posted for the TV indicates that it has a digital audio coax output. But I don't see it in your picture.

[edit]Just looked at LG's site, and they indicate that your TV only has a digital audio optical output. The info on Newegg's site is wrong.

If it is long enough, it should. WallyWorld has some 3' cables for $6 if you are so inclined.
