Hi have just got a DN372T TT box. It has SCART and Optical but no RCA (why?) to connect to an external amp. Before I go to try and find a scart (threw them out ages ago) can anyone tell me if the SCART audio output is active while TV output is via HDMI? If not going to have to get a DAC

Hi @Lapitude

 

I've just tried a SCART audio video lead (from a video camera) with only the audio connected from a HUMAX box with HDMI on and it gave the sound, I'm not sure how good the sound would be in a system though.

 

Wouldn't it be easier to run a lead from the TV to the amp though?

Seems these days they don't put any audio out on TVs except SDpif optical. Don't understand, if it's a cost saving, there must be a DAC on board, so the price of 2 RCAs, more like penny pinching

I'm pretty sure that my year old Sony W TV has them, anyway that is totally irrelevant to you. I was just thinking out loud.

Stand corrected, both the Samsung models I encountered haven't. Didn't even have a 3.5mm headphone out...going to get a scart connector today so I can hopefully use the Dolby processing/surround on my amp. Anyone else had similar issues?
