How to connect a Samsung LED TV Model No. UA32EH4003R to the home theatre system. I think it does not have Audio out. Please suggest me a method
January 2, 2013 2:54:17 PM

do you have full home theatere i.e. surrounded sound speakers?

That TV does not have audio out from my research.

You will just need to bypass the TV with your devices. Hook up the Cable box/DVD/Gaming console directly to the audio receiver. Then whenever you want to switch inputs you will just need to change the input on both the TV for video and on the speakers for audio.

I can clarify more if you give me more info.

Thanks for the response....I can listen to DVD's sound on the home theatre when watching movies but I am not getting any sound in the home theatre when i watch TV channels....The home theatre model is Samsung HT-E453K
Will i be able to get TV Channels sound if i buy Set top Box. Currently i am watching TV on Cable

Yes if you got a box you should be able to hook that up to the home theater.

I have a brand new Samsung 55" with ZERO audio out ports. I solved it with an 4 x 1 HDMI switcher box that has a SEPARATE audio out feature (either digital coax/digital optical/or red/white analog outputs).

So I have three HDMI inputs (1) cable box (2) DVD (3) "smart TV" Sony box. And there is still an extra HDMI input on the front panel for my son's XBox. I use the HDMI output to got to my TV. I use a digital coax to go to my Bose sound system. The switcher box in a Monoprice 5557. Here is a link if you want to see it. It works great!

Below is my more detailed answer for this "Having no audio out function" on your TV question/solution (for future readers. Might be clearer than my shorter answer above:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a brand new 55" Samsung with ZERO audio outputs (go figure). My 55" Samsung is a model UN55FH6003F

To solve the problem of improving the sound quality versus using the original on-board internal Samsung TV speakers, I bought an HDMI switcher box that has three "separate" audio outputs as well as an HDMI output and 4 HDMI inputs..

So I have three HDMI inputs plugged currently "into" the new HDMI switcher box:
(1) HDMI from my cable box
(2) HDMI from my dvd
(3) HDMI from a "Smart" TV internet box (my TV is not a "smart TV" so this box lets me connect my TV to the Internet)


Then "from" the HDMI switcher box
(1) one HDMI output to my new TV for the TV video
(2) one separate audio Digital output for TV sound


The switcher box I am using, gives you choices of three different types/choices of separate audio outputs to plug into your sound system/sound bar/amplifier/surround sound/BOSE Solo:
(a) digital coax audio
(b) digital optical audio
(c) older analog red/white RCA audio

So I have my audio going from the new HDMI switcher box to a separate audio system (could be any receiver/external speakers/home theater/surround sound/whatever).

For sound, I personally hook into a BOSE Solo system using the Digital COAX audio cable. I chose the BOSE unit because I wanted to control our sound volume with a remote. I just turn off or lower the original TV's crummy speakers only using the BOSE for sound. But ANY separate sound system can be hooked in (a separate Amp/sound bar, whatever)

The HDMI switcher box I am using is a Monoprice 5557 pretty cool and not expensive.

GAMERS you will like this!
There also is a 4th (forth) separate HDMI input on the front of the HDMI switcher box unit, that my son uses for his XBox (or you can hook up to any other gaming system). You may need an HDMI adapter/converter for some gaming systems. Our XBox HAS an HDMI "out" function. Adapter/converters are out there. Just found one for a gamer for their Wii.

Hope this helps!

I have similar situation with my TV Samsung UN65FH6001 which has not audio outs. I can plug all HDMI devices to my receiver and output to the TV and have my 5.1 sound. But for TV, I'm just using Antena signal which is going via Coax on back of TV. And b/c it is not going through my receiver, I can't use my Home theater speakers... This is the only solution I have so far....

1. Get an external TV turner with HDMI output so I can plug the antenna there and then plug it to my Receiver. Problem with this is that now I have another separate remote controll for external TV turner.

I would like to know if there is a way to actually get an audio signal from TV to the receiver...



December 15, 2013 12:36:43 PM

Does your receiver have additional analog "inputs" also? You could convert the "RF" coax cable antenna signal to analog red/white/yellow RCA plugs with an RF converter. Like this:
http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/Produ...

You "might???" be able to run BOTH from the product, to keep one remote. [1] run the red/white audio RCA cables to the receiver, while running the [2] RF coax cable from the product to the TV.

An "external TV turner with HDMI output" probably is a good option, but you do end up with 2 remotes.

Hi, this sounds like the sort of thing I need. Does anyone know if there is a UK version or whether it would work with a UK tv and sound system? I have had an Lg 32cs460 tv for about a year now and I have just been bought an LG BH4030s 3D Blu-Ray / DVD home cinema system. The sound works when I play a DVD or Bluray on it but I get no sound at all when trying to watch the tv with it still plugged in, even if it is turned off. The tv has no audio out at all. Thanks in advance

jreeves1992,

The 5557 HDMI switcher box should work perfectly as long as the UK uses the same HDMI cabling connections and digital or RCA audio connections we use here to connect your DVD, TV and sound system.. You would connect your components just like my diagram posted in this thread. You can go to the Monoprice web site and search for HDMI switcher 5557. http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=101&cp_id=10110&c...


You would need to convert the 5557's DC power from the USA plug to the UK standard. You would just need a USA/UK power converter. I just asked the Monoprice folks if they had a UK version of the 5557. They said no, BUT....just purchase a USA/UK power converter and it will work fine. I am sure lots of folks sell them, but the Monoprice folks gave me a link to theirs USA/UK converters: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=108&cp_id=10855&...

Here is what Monoprice say about their USA/UK plug converters:
Quote:
This is a blade adapter in that it allows you to adapt the plug blades of any device to that of the local power wall socket. The face of the adapter accommodates two- and three-bladed power plugs from the US, UK, EU, Australia, and China. The opposite end has four sets of plug blades corresponding to the four different accepted types (Australia and China use the same plug design). Simply push forward on one of the slides to extend the appropriate plug for the wall socket.


Bottom-line, should work great as long as the DVD's, TV's and sound system's HDMI cables are the same HDMI plugs. Just not sure of that.
Here is a link to look at the HDMI cables I use. Take a look: http://www.cablewholesale.com/products/hdmi-products/hd...


Hope this all helps!

Your Audio Signal Cable Choices


Digital versus Analog
Digital audio cables are meant to transmit a sophisticated high definition audio signal between your audio source component and a component to "play" the sound into your room. The older analog audio cables did the same thing, but they use TWO wires and the sound is nowhere close to as sophisticated. If you spent money to purchase a high definition component to "play" your sound, if at all possible, you want to use one of the three "digital" cabling choices.

The playing component referred to, could be your stereo speakers, a surround sound system, a home theater amplifier, a sound bar etc,. In short, a more sophisticated sound source to "play" your sound, than just simply using the speakers housed inside your TV.

Coaxial Digital Audio Cables Coaxial digital audio cables have a good "tight" fit to your source sound component and your playing component. Sources say that over distance there is a loss of signal quality. Consult your cable source as to what they say for signal quality versus the length of cable distance. Some sources advertise longer cables constructed for longer distance with no or minimal signal quality loss. If you are less than 15 feet, don't give it a a second of thought, you are fine!!!

Optical Digital Audio Cables Optical digital audio cables transmit your sophisticated digital audio signal just like Coaxial (above), but can do it over much greater distances than Coaxial, without having to boost the signal. So if your components are 20 feet apart, use Optical. But, there are limitations. Optical cables use light to transmit the signal. So if you have tight bends in your path from one component to the other, Optical might not be the answer.

Analog Audio Cables Analog audio cables, commonly known as RCA, stereo, or composite audio cables. Prior to the high definition and digital world, we all used these for hooking up our stereo components. Basically color coded one red and one white for a two channel "left" and "right" audio connection (if there is a "third" cable for an analog video signal, it is usually color coded yellow).

High Definition Multimedia Interface Cables Referred to commonly as HDMI cables, this is always your best choice. Remember, the three other choices presented here, ONLY transmit your AUDIO signal from component to component. There ALWAYS has to be a third cable transmitting the VIDEO signal component to component with the other three choices. Example, if you use a Coaxial Digital Audio Cable from your DVD to your high definition TV, you STILL need to run a separate video cable from the DVD to the TV as well. BUT running an HDMI cable from your DVD to the TV transmits a digital signal of BOTH video and audio. You use one cable instead of two. Both the video and the audio signals are digital.


Why I had to use the HDMI switcher box
In my case, I needed to send two SEPARATE signals from my source components (cable box, DVD, Xbox) to [1] first a video from my source component to the TV and [2] second an audio signal from my source component to my separate sound system (in my case my BOSE Solo).

Bottom-line, IF your TV HAS an "Audio Out" plug for any of the above audio cables, use that to go to your separate audio component. Otherwise, my solution detailed above works absolutely great.

Enjoy!

jreeves1992,

Hopefully the cabling portion I added to the thread above will help you in your UK versus USA questions? Let me know if it helped?

Not sure why it didn't work for you. Works perfectly for me and some others who did it as well. Sorry it did not work for you.

I just bought a new Samsung with no audio out. I will try the HDMI switch box method and report back. Looking to hook up a Onkyo home theatre to it.

It should work just fine. Remember the HDMI switch MUST have a "separate" audio "Out" function like the Monoprice 5557 has.

Thanks for all your help Greg!
The box should arrive tonight. And it does have separate audio out. Before I found this thread, I thought my Onkyo Cinema system was DOA. Was about to return it!

January 21, 2014 7:32:11 PM

Bad news!!!
The hdmi box I used doesn't work. It is a different model than the one you suggested. Here is a link to it, seems it should have worked:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008F29MZ4/ref=oh_deta...

Anyway, I ordered the monoprice 5557 unit and am returning the one above. On a side note, I can get audio to my sound system through my cable box, using an hdmi cable and rca jacks out, but the issue is I have a Roku that needs to go to it too. Man, maybe I should have spent a few more bucks to get a better tv. Oh well. Hopefully the monoprice works out.

The 5557 should work fine. It also has enough HDMI inputs for your [1] cable box and your [2] Roku (and two more HDMI inputs for whatever else you have HDMI'ish).

You also can choose between Analog or Digital for your output to go into your Home Theater. Choose a Digital coax cable if you have it as an option on your Home Theater input.

Let me know how it works.

January 24, 2014 6:10:39 PM

Hey Greg,

Bad news. I received the 5557 switch box and it didn't work. No matter what I tried. Didgital coax, stereo, 2.1 vs 5.1 nothing no sound. With the tv I have, I read there is no audio out over hdmi. It is missing. this is the tv:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/65-class-64-1-2-diag--led-1...$abcat0101001&cp=1&lp=2#tab=reviews

My TV really has absolutely no audio out period. Shame really for watching movies. That's why I'm going to return it and get a better tv with more options!! I've only had this one for 7 days so returning won't be a problem. Sometimes going for the cheapest option isn't the way to go. Anyway, thanks for all your help!!

Your tv is basically the 65" model of the 55" I have.

Sorry about that. I actually do not understand.

The type/manufacture of your TV doesn't matter as you are actually running around it with the 5557. The audio works independently of the TV.

---Your cable box HDMI to the 5557 (select the correct button on the 5557)
---then audio out of the 5557 right to the home theater without EVER connecting any HDMI cable to the tv
should give you (at least) sound/audio out of the home theater.

Did you try plain old audio (red/white RCA) analog out of the 5557 into the home theater (or any other audio device) , just for curiosity?

Sorry about that.
January 25, 2014 6:17:24 PM

Yes Greg, I did try RCA out of the 5557 to the sound system. No sound. I just gave up. It shouldn't be this hard. Even if I somehow figured it out it wasn't worth the aggravation. Any way I returned it with no trouble and got a new Samsung smart tv with plenty of ports. Right out of the box the surround system was working. Sometimes you get what you pay for. The new TV has a better picture too. Worth the $300 more. Thanks for all your help.
January 25, 2014 10:57:13 PM

Glad you got all working. Enjoy!

I also have this tv I noticed an auxiliary jack on the back below all the plugs. Believe u should be able to plug into there and run it into an audio in onto your surround receiver

Thank you gregates. I just ordered my monoprice for mainly the audio out for gaming. Your post made it easy to decide what I needed. I bought a 65" Samsung at Christmas for a great deal and knew it didn't have much to offer in the way of hooking up devises but I was only gonna use it for gaming and I never in a million years would have imagined that it would not have an audio out.
