Re: TCL optical audio issue

WOW!!! Just WOW!!! I’ve been researching this all over the net and you found the fix... as soon as I switched from ARC to normal HDMI the audio on the sound bar came on. THANK YOU!!!

Re: TCL optical audio issue

Go to Settings >> Audio >> Advance settings >Digital audio out > and set to PCM and your SPDIF should work ..

 

Good Luck ;-)

Re: TCL optical audio issue

Already had tried that. Maybe I have a bad DAC. The DAC I have has two outputs for the powered speakers, one Optical and one coax. I know the coax connection works cause my previous tv had it and it worked with it.

Re: TCL optical audio issue

You ever get this figured out? I'm running into the same issue. I have a Bose Solo 5 connected to my TCL 55S425 Roku TV. It only has AUX, Optical and Coaxial for TV Inputs. I have the Optical connected and get no sound. Any thoughts?

Re: TCL optical audio issue

I was running optical out from TCL to Analog to Digital Converter, Converter to RCA receiver, working fine 2 days ago. Stopped working, so I replaced the converter and Toslink cord to no avail. Anyone got anything on this? There is no HDMI connected. Im baffled that this worked wonderfully a few days ago, and no longer works.

Re: TCL optical audio issue

I am having same issue. Perhaps recent software update caused malfunction.  Very frustrating!!!

ps I fixed issue by unplugging my Samsung HT-bd1250 for 10 sec then restarting home theater system.  Then I searched for new CEC device under the systems menu.

I hope this works for you.

Re: TCL optical audio issue

I have a TCL 55" ROKU TV. I also have a TCL sound bar.  I fixed my no sound issue by selecting Dolby Digital under S/PDIF and ARC.

Settings>Audio>S/PDIF and ARC>DOLBY DIGITAL. Sound bar now works just fine.

Re: TCL optical audio issue

Had the same problem. Tried everything and it didnt work. I had to push the optical cable until it clicked into the soundbar and it worked fine. I have my ps4 hooked to the hdmi arc too
