    I have a Toshiba ZP38 television and a Teac AG-L800 amplifier,my problem is that i just cannot seem to get the sound from my television to come out of the amp

    I have connected an optical cable to the optical 2 socket on the back of the amp(leading from the tv optical socket) and have tried what seems like every combination of output selection on the amp but still nothing

    On the tv i have the switch on the back set to external and i have 2 scarts running to the dvd player and sky repectively,i have tried the av combinations on the tv set-up but none of these seem to work

    I am no technical whizz so i'm sure it's something stupid i haven't done

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Just had a quick read of your tv manual , it is indeed an optical input you have on there not an output . Look at page 4 , you will need to use R&W phono cables (from the sockets next to the aerial socket ,marked with a circle with an arrow out) in to the corresponding sockets on your Teac , if it has them . the Optical socket is to allow you to plug in a DVD player and hae the TV do the decoding
