Just setup my new Samsung 65 in and I am extremely happy with it so far. Picture is amazing watched movies with dark backgrounds and no issues. Only question/problem I have is I have an older receiver (Sony STR-DE485) and would love to connect my TV to it so I can play sound through it. Do not have any way of doing that since this TV only has digital audio output. Am I missing something? Is there another way to do this? Thank you in advance!

If the receiver supports HDMI-ARC you can use the ARC port on the TV.

My name is Rob and I to have recently purchased a UN65MU6290, I was wondering if you might share your picture settings, or did you just use the default settings?
Happy to see your's is actually powered on, I have a weird power plug issue, and still waiting for Samsung to send me out one. it will be close to 1 month by the time I get the plug, I hope it is worth the waiting.

Hi Rob, the settings I changed where the brightness and a little bit of the picture quality. Everything else I left pretty much the same besides having the TV shut off after 4 hours of an activity. Other than that the TV has been absolutely amazing picture quality and sound quality. This weekend I'm going out to purchase a receiver that has digital audio inputs so I can have the TV go through a receiver instead of the speakers on the TV. Not that there's anything wrong with them at all! But that is the only downfall I see with this TV is there is no other audio outputs besides digital audio. Any other questions please feel free to ask. Have a great holiday and happy New Year!

Thank You for the reply, As I am still waiting, ( Power Plug ) I am currently just looking around on the web to see if I can finsd any calibration settings that other have been using. Found some that were not for this model TV however if I do find any specific for our model I'll happily drop it here for you.
And Happy Holidays to you as well.......

Hey dude, I have a similar situation with a Sony Walkman
Sony receiver STR-K750P and my
Samsung TV UN55MU6290.
No audio sound.
The TV states it's only compatible with Dolby plus 5.1
My receiver has Dolby everything, but not sure if it has 5.1
Any way to bypass?

TY for your input.
I found out
1) my receiver is 5.1 Dolby.
(TY for explaining the meaning of 5.1).
2) I could use an optical cable which the TV and receiver has.
3) you had a reply from Samsung moderator Cole who mentioned an HDMI-arc port, which is probably what you're suggesting with the Digital/RCA converter box (I'd have to look into that, TY for the link).
4) If the TV has a headphone Jack, use that.
5) As you said, get new receiver.
6) These TVs don't output external audio, except for 2) & 3) above.
Again, TY for responding.
