So my girlfriend and I went out and bought a new TV yesterday, Samsung UN65KU6290F. Was a significant upgrade over an older Sony. Picture looks great and the on board speakers aren't that bad, but I am having a hell of a time getting them to work with our old receiver, which is a JVC RX-5060. Sometime down the road, I am wanting to upgrade the receiver to have all the HDMI ports to make it easier, but we don't have that luxury just yet.
For whatever reason, I'm running the audio cables from the receiver to the TV and I cannot get any sound to come through the external speakers. I've also went out and picked up a digital optical cable to run from the TV to the receiver and still not getting any luck. I can still get the speakers to play CD's just fine and the radio stations, but there is something with the TV that's not working.
The only option I can find on the TV is to switch the audio from TV speakers to external speakers, which is not currently working. Any idea on what I could be missing? I know if I call Samsung, they will tell me it's the receiver, which worked just fine with the older TV. Any thoughts ?
