Question Samsung ue55hu6900 pcm


Novice Member
Hello, I am sorry if this has asked before. I have an old Samsung ue55hu6900 television and have just purchased a shiny new Marantz NR1200 to play sound of the television through. I have followed the instructions, using a hdmi lead from arc socket from the television to the receiver. I am also using an optical cable from the television to the receiver. Unfortunately, though there is a picture there is no sound. I have gone through the settings on the television and it states PCM not PCM 2. Does this matter or will I have to bite the bullet and buy a new television.

Thank you for any help.

Optical should work if the tv is set to output to it, and the reciever set to optical input. As for the hdmi, it should be connected to the single hdmi output port on the reciever to use arc. Have you also other devices connected to the tv as well?
