Posting here as this seems an audio not home theatre issue but please move me if I have this wrong. I have been trying to run the audio from my TV (LG C1) to my DAC-V1 using an optical connection. Analogue outputs to the XS2 in case that matters. I always get static noise (i.e. the signal isn’t being processed) even if the TV output is set to optical. The old Sony TV I had seemed to send out signals that were picked up automatically by the DAC, but the LG doesn’t.
Can anyone give me an idiot’s guide to how to do/troubleshoot this?
