Default samsung led tv has no audio output

Hi,

I'm trying to help my uncle, he just bought a Samsung UN55FH6003FXZA TV. His setup is as follows, hd antenna fed to his TV and he has a yamaha surround receiver with a blue ray player. Blue Ray connects to receiver via hdmi and receiver to tv via hdmi.

Problem is he wants the ability to have his antenna TV to run through the receiver as well but there is no optical audio out put on this TV.

Can someone please give us some options to give an audio feed from the TV to the receiver?

Thanks for any advice!
Ben

Just looked it up on Best Buy WOW. Can't believe they couldn't put one and on Samsung website and shows optical port. No ARC or Optical makes it a candidate for a return.

According to this from http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/...FXZA-features:
Quote:
Advanced audio processing decodes the DTS stream, then mixes down and outputs 2-channel audio, played back via stereo speakers. Digital Out means the device can also output the DTS bitstream via digital outputs (S/PDIF or HDMI) to a receiver to decode DTS audio.
The TV has a S/PDIF output which is coaxial (RCA plug) and your receiver should have a coaxial input as well. Hook up is with a standard RCA cable. If your receiver does not have a digital coaxial input then you will need to get a coax to optical converter like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-1029...oax+to+optical

You did not say what his receiver is but the newer receivers that switch HDMI have digital audio return through the HDMI connection which the TV also supports.

Thanks for the replies-

tiger862 - if it was me, yes it would be returned. My uncle says he likes it and for the price he isn't going to return it.

rbinck - Sorry for not posting what receiver he has, at the time I didn't know. The link you posted isn't working. I did find what you were talking about but I don't believe this applies to his model. Below is a pic out of the manual that shows the rear jack. I wouldn't of believed it myself until I went over and seen the rear of his tv. The "ex. link" is a weird looking jack, I thought for sure that was the optical jack but no. It has no audio output.





He had called samsung tech support and they had told him that his tv does not have audio out. He ended up purchasing a digital tuner yesterday that has the audio out that he needs to get his tv surround.

Again thanks for the replies, but at this point he has what he needs.
