TV Audio Output Issue
Hello!
I recently picked up a Samsung 40" LN40E550F6F LCD TV, and I had been under the impression that the TV would include some form of audio output. The only options on the rear panel are 2 HDMI inputs, 1 Component/RCA Audio Input,and one jack that looks suspiciously like an Optical Audio out marked "Service".

I had never heard of a TV without any audio output, but apparently it exists. I have a Pioneer 821k audio receiver that I use for surround sound, and hook all of my peripherals EXCEPT my basic cable provided by my college campus, as the receiver has no antenna input. I would like to be able to use the surround sound with my basic cable, so my question is, is there a converter I can use to take a cable antenna and convert at the very least the stereo audio into RCA for the input on my receiver.

Or, is there a way I could use the HDMI ARC to get the audio from the cable back into the receiver?

Thanks in advance!

Many TV's do not have an audio output jack. If it did, the output would most likely only be stereo unless you use an optical output. But even then, the output would only be stereo unless the broadcast was in DD5.1.

My 55" Phillips only has Digital Coax Audio out. It is the yellow connector that looks like a regular RCA connector.
