TV Digital Audio Output Hookup for Optical or Coaxial cables

Last Update: 05/31/2012

TV Digital Audio Out Hookups


This is a common hookup used when you have an over the Air Antenna or Smart TV with applications for movies or audio sources.


The recommended/common connection on the Yamaha receiver is the AV4 Optical (TV) input. (AV1 can also be used.)


There are no special settings on the receiver needed, just make sure the input is on AV4 or AV1 depending on what connection you chose to use.


Your TV may or may not have settings that need to be changed. You may need to enable digital audio out and possibly turn off the TV internal speakers. Please consult the owner’s manual of the TV for details on that setup. As well as any limitations on audio output formats. Some TV’s will only support 2 channel PCM digital output.


Note: If the TV does not have Optical out for digital and utilizes the Coaxial digital out, you would have your choice of using AV2 or AV3 for inputs.
