Customer Question
I recently purchased a Samsung...
I recently purchased a Samsung UHD-TV. The only audio out is a digital optical connection. I have an older stereo system that is all analog. I bought a digital to analog converter and connected to the TV and stereo. I have three devices connected to the TV: a cable box, a Roku player and a DVD player. The DVD player audio is fine. However, both the cable box and Roku player produce a horrible ratchetty sound. It seems like all three connections should work, not just one. Can you shed any light on this?

I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
