I have an STR-DE197 receiver that I bought in 2008 to use with a Sony turntable an a Sony CD player.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Sony is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Well, actually my question concerns running the sound from a 2014-15 Sony Bravia TV Model KDL-40W600B. Is there any way to run sound from the TV through the STR-DE 197 (purchased in 12/08) to my Sony bookshelf speakers?
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I've tried the speaker and audio inputs on the TV, and I've tried hooking red and white RCA cables to the Audio In on the receiver.
JA: The TV expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: No, just that I realize that the receiver is an older model, without an HDMI
connection. There is also not a corresponding optical connection on the receiver, as shown on page 14 of the TV manual.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the TV Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
