First time ever for me to use a chat room, but what the heck, hey? I need some advice for my new tv. It is a samsung dlp tv and I just put an optical audio connector from the cable box to the tv and I am pretty sure I did it right but cannot hear a thing... obviously something I did was wrong. But I did read that you should turn down the tv volume and use the cable box to adjust volume. This is not working either. I really don't know what I can do. Someone suggested that the cable box or tv was not registering this connection but I've looked through all of the menu options on both remotes and nothing covers this???? Help please!
