      Answer

      Honestly, $20.01 and where it is purchased. Many marketed high-quality cables are constructed of the same basic materials as the lower-cost alternatives. They may have colored insulators or gold-plated connections, yet simple lamp wiring is sufficient for speaker cables and a $5 dynex HDMI transmits all the same electrons as a $45 GigantoCable.

    Have new Samsung 43" Smart TV. Also have a builtin sound system. When I watch live TV, sound comes through my speakers. When I switch to Netflix, only get sound through TV - not speakers. How can I correct? Thanks.   (3 Answers)

      You have to go to settings and click in the audio settings. There should be a place to incorporate sound for system and TV.

      Many Soundbars come with the cable included. Look at the one you want to see if you need an extra cord.

    Digital Optical through tv to old receiver   (3 Answers)

    I recently got an xbox one only to find after the purchase that optical was required for 5.1 sound (after talking with ms support). Can I run the optical from the xbox to my hdtv (which has an optical input) and then have the sound come though to my old receiver (that has no optical input) which is connected to my hdtv via the old rca red, white, yellow output jacks? (I don't care if its lesser quality...just want surround without having to buy a new surround setup after paying out $500 for my not so next gen console)

        Do you mean the RCA don't match with your TV? If your TV had optical/digital slot, you can buy a Optical to RCA adapter.

      Connecting Standard size Digital Optical output from tv to 3.5mm minni toslink input on Bose Solo Sound System   (2 Answers)

      I need an Audio Optical Cable with a 3.5mm minni toslink connector on one end to plug into my Bose Solo Sound System and the Larger Toslink Digital Optical connector output on my Toshiba TV on the other end. Can you recomend a model or SKU number???

        Those don't exist. You'd be going from stereo to digital. You need a stereo to optical/digital converter box. I use a Fosmon digital to analog audio converter.

          No, this is not an Aux. it usually connects your TV to your speaker or mixer.
