  • New UHD Samsung TV to Old Yamaha a/v receiver. How to hook up.

    Hello. We Have a brand new Samsung UHD TV. There are no RCA audio outputs. It comes with a small adapter box with the letter ARC, looks like speaker or audio connection. Do they make an adapter cable so you can use your older HT set up? Thanks all.

    Model number of the TV? You might have already done so, but I usually have a lot of luck doing a Google search...

      TV should have an optical digital audio output -- use that into your A/V receiver. If your receiver doesn't have an optical input, you should be able to buy a box to convert the optical to RCA out for about $30 or less.

      alternatively, there are adaptors which can pull an audio signal out of HDMI cables

      both of the above should be available on PE
