Simolio brand name model number sm-621D
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 month ago

Thank you. That is for a wireless hearing device, and I'm assuming you tried using the RCA red and white jacks on the TV?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 month ago

Okay, the TV's red and white RCA are for INPUT (they don't send sound out- only in). The TV uses a DIGITAL AUDIO output- and that is the only jack on this TV that is an audio out. To connect that to your transmitter you need a converter. Most all modern TV's use this optical/digital jack nowadays. I am pulling up a link to the converter you need now.

I have the optimal cable that came with the device
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
There's a spot on the back of the TV for that so I hooked it up to that and to the device
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 month ago

The device doesn't show in the specs that it uses optical? Are you 100% sure what optical is?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 month ago

That cable has a square end on it and a red light comes through when you plug it into the TV's digital audio out jack. That's what you have??
