TiVo Optical Output

I cannot get any TV sound from my home theatre (Samsung) following connection of a new optical cable fron my TiVo box. The home theatre surround sound works fine playing Blu Ray and worked before when connected to a BT Vision receiver!

Normally you install an optical cable from TV to your sound system

I have tried that as well but although I can connect cables to other devices my Toshiba TV won’t allow cable to click home!

Hi in that case are you sure it's an optical port, as there is nothing to go wrong, has it got the words optical out on it.Regards Micky

Re: TiVo Optical Output

Finally got optical cable connected. The black dust cap on the TV for cable had come off leaving the spring preventing connection. Lifted this out of the way and the cable snapped into place. 

However, surround sound still doesn’t work from my TV! Cable shows red light, is successfully connected to my home cinema system but no sound. The home theatre system on its own works great, could it be tbe quslity if the cable?
