Thx Usedknobby. Wow, this is a reach since so much time has gone by. Actually, I did get my Phonak working properly but didn't post it because I'm not sure what got it working. I am using the TV digital audio (optical) out into the Phonak. I too have a soundbar. I'm sure that there are input/output conflicts in my receiver but I haven't played with it in a while. Getting the Phonak working was the priority In the meantime I lost the capability of my DVR, UGH. I feel I have tried all input/output configurations with no luck. It really shouldn't be this difficult and I do miss my DVR. Usedknobby, that's what I used to use on my enduro bike, HA.
Thx for your input
I used the optical out into a techole digital to analog converter which then allowed me to connect to tv link with an rca cable, went into tv settings and changed sound output to pcm and it works !!. Yeah when I first joined ebay I was looking to find tires for my motocross bike, needed a username hence Usedknobby.
