Default Surround Sound Hook-up for 73" Mitsubishi?

Hello,

I just purchased a 73" Mitsubishi WD-73735. Looking at the back of the tv, there are only two audio output areas. Namely, digital audio output (1 orange jack) and two AVR audio output jacks (red and white.) I have attached a picture of the rear panel. I would like to add some speakers to the tv and am not sure how to do this with available jacks. My old TV only had the red and white jacks. How exactly does the single digital output jack work? I have never seen one before. Is it for a full surround sound system? Any advise is appreciated for this HD newbie who has just joined the 21st century!

Thanks!

The outputs are line level to connect to an audio system.

Normally, connecting that orange optical out from the tv to your surround receiver will produce only stereo unless you are using an antenna.

If you are using an HD cable or sat. box you need to run an optical cable directly from the cable box to your receiver to get surround. You can run your HDMI straight into the tv for video, and just turn off the tv volume.

The red/white audio outs will just provide stereo.

I still confused as to what the Y, Pb and Pr jacks do. They are listed as "input". So the only audio output my TV has are the two red and white RCA jacks and the orange digital audio (also RCA)?

If I am understanding correctly....the only way for me to get surround sound out of this TV is to run an HDMI cable directly from my cable box to the receiver? My cable box only has one HDMI port which now runs directly to the TV.....I think for quality HD it needs to stay that way right?

I attached a picture of the inputs / outputs on my TV in the first post. I will try to attach a picture of the inputs / outputs on the back of my surround sound amp. Maybe someone can suggest how to hook it up for functioning surround sound with available jacks? Thanks in advance!

You have to connect an OPTICAL audio cable directly from the cable box to your receiver. Bypass the tv. Connect the HDMI into your tv for video. Turn off the tv's sound. You'll have surround sound. Broadcast tv, cable box output, is maximum 5.1 surround and optical cables can handle 5.1 perfectly, so that's all you need to have. That's the way my cable box is set up, just be sure to go into your cable box's audio set up and choose "surround".

That's the same thing I said above. It'll work, try it.

It seems your sound system has only discrete 5 channels surround audio input.
So you need the same output from the box; as you have no other choice.
