I have a 5.1 sound system that only has 6ch input and stereo input (left/right composite). I don’t use the stereo input. The 6ch input is connected to the 6ch output of a USB External 7.1 Channel Audio adapter.
The USB External 7.1 Channel Audio adapter has an optical input and a 3.5mm line input. If I plug a 3.5mm cable from the AV out to the Line-In I get a horrible buzz (my friend said this is because the AV out is supposed to be plugged into a 3.5mm jack with a red/white/yellow composite on the other end; I’ve never seen any such thing so I’m questioning this) but the sound is there. If I plug the optical output into the SPDIF input of the USB External 7.1 Channel Audio adapter I get no sound.
I’ve changed the Audio/Video Input/Output settings in my WD Live TV to Digital Pass-Through via Optical only and selected DTS and dolby support for my sound system.
I’ve also double-checked to make sure the USB External 7.1 Channel Audio adapter has its SPDIF input enabled. It is of course plugged into a computer to configure the adapter.
i updated to the latest firmware version 1.13.18
I’m really trying to figure out any way to connect the Live TV to my sound system, but as near as I can tell trying to use the optical through the 7.1 Channel Audio adapter is the only way I can get an input from the Live TV to the sound system.
Thanks for your help.
