I have a Samsung UN40N5200AFXZA TV and am trying to get external speakers to work. The built in audio is more and more irritatingly mediocre, especially as I get older.
For some reason, every thing I try fails. The SOUND setting is to AUDIO OUT/OPTICAL.
I've tried optical cable (2 different ones) to a known speaker, and RCA TO 3.5mm to known speakers and no response.
I assume my whole 'Audio Out' function is inoperative.
Is there something else I could try with this set? Is there any way to get separate audio through HDMI?
I will be eternally grateful for any advice that gets me good audio . . . other than a new set!
