Re: Lifestyle 35 multi connections

Hi all, must have been going through a senior moment or two as the solution was incredibly easy. Connect the blu ray and media player to the TV via hdmi connections then use the optical audio out from the TV to the lifestyle 35 optical audio in socket.

 

problem now solved except I have a pile of rca to hdmi, hdmi to female hdmi cables and av to hdmi converters laying spare..........

 

thanks to all for your help.

 

very impressed!

Glad I could help 🙂

 

Out of curiosity, are you getting a 5.1 signal from your Bluray and media player via the TV's optical? If so, could you let us know what TV you have?
