HDMI cables are not the only option for connecting audio equipment to the TV, other cables are just as easy to access and set up.
It may seem daunting for a receiver without HDMI, but it is very easy. All you need is the output of the TV, you can use the traditional RCA analog cable or digital cable. Then, feed these types of cables into the input jacks of modern receivers that can receive them. Using analog or digital cables from smart TV to receiver, can provide users with
HDMI has become all in one
Lasted for nearly two decades. The simplicity of obtaining audio and video content in a single cable from the TV to the receiver makes connecting devices a breeze. Just insert
From the output on the TV, then connect the cable to the back of the receiver. As a result, digital video and audio signals are transmitted from the TV to the receiver.
But for those who can’t get
Connection or cable, they will have to consider other solutions, such as old-style audio cables. Overall, there are three common solutions to choose from, including the use of analog RCA left and right stereo cables, single coaxial digital cables or optical audio cables. This is the difference between them and how to identify each other.
If the smart TV has an RCA output and an analog RCA stereo cable, then this may be the easiest and fastest option to connect the TV and the receiver. Ordinary RCA cables are usually white and red, white cables are used for the left channel, and red cables are used for the right channel. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the color matches the TV output jack located on the back of the monitor. Plug the white RCA cable into the white output and the red RCA cable into the red output. Inverting them will cause the stereo signal from the smart TV to be incorrect. Remove the other end of the RCA cable and plug the white and red ends into the available RCA inputs on the back of the receiver.
Many receivers have a large number of inputs, so note which input the RCA cable is plugged into. This makes it easier to set the correct input in the receiver's menu. Before setting the input on the receiver, check the menu system of the TV to make sure that the audio is set to "audio output" or a similar setting. Use the included remote control to access the receiver's menu. Enter the receiver menu system on the front panel display, and select the correct analog input you noted down. Find a TV channel
Now come out of the receiver.
Or, digital coaxial audio cable from
To the recipient. The digital coaxial audio cable is a single cable that can be easily plugged into the rear of the receiver from the TV. The barrel of the cable is round. Insert the coaxial audio cable into the rear output jack of the smart TV, then remove the cable from the TV and plug it into the available input jack on the back of the receiver. Make a note of the input jacks you have used. Set the TV audio to "audio output" through the menu. Use the receiver's remote control to find the coaxial audio selection in the menu and select it. Audio should now be played on the speakers connected to the receiver.
Finally, there are optical audio cables, which work like digital coaxial audio cables. Digital audio from smart TVs can be transmitted via optical audio cables. This type of cable is also commonly referred to as TOSLINK. The two ends of the cable are square. Insert the optical audio cable into the back of the smart TV, and then connect the cable to the open optical audio input jack on the receiver. Again, select the menu option on the TV to "Audio Out", plug the optical cable into the receiver, and write down the input number again (if applicable). Use the receiver's remote control to select the correct input, and then play audio from the TV to check the sound.
