    Hello,
    I recently purchased a new Samsung Smart TV (UE32F6400AK) and am trying to connect it to my Panasonic home cinima system (SA-PT560) but I can't seem to get it to work. With my old TV it was as simple as plug the Panasonic into the power and the Panasonic into the TV (dual-end red&white cable). No luck with this TV. I would use a HDMI however this old Panasonic system doesn't have a hole for one :/.

    Any guides / tips?

    I assume you want the sound from the TV to go through the Panasonic. The TV you have has plenty of inputs but fewer outputs. You can either use the headphone output or the digital output (assuming the Panasonic has a suitable input).

    Th only cable I really have available is the white and red (and the yellow that nobody cares about)(also appologies for not using technical names)... What kind of cable will I need for either of these methods, links to pics?

    I did list the model numbers for both items, could you take a look and see if they have what I need? I just don't want to accidentally buy the wrong cable.

    I tried a search on the Panasonic model number and couldn't find anything. The headphone adapter will work, the only issue will be balancing the volume controls (the TV volume will work and so will the Panasonic one).
