Apple TV audio issue


Novice Member

My Apple TV isn't playing audio from any purchased films or TV shows, it works fine with airplay or music being played from Apple TV / iPhone / MacBook Pro.

It makes some weird screeching sound and you can't even hear the film in the background. I am using an optical cable which is currently being connected into a box that effectively converts it to aux. reason for this is that my current sound system doesn't support optical inputs.

All other sound inputs work via that connection and I don't have any issues with sound.

Any ideas?
