hdtv sound?


My tv has optical sound output is there any way i could hook it up to my surround sound that has red and white plugs

Unfortunately, the answer is no.

The red & white plugs are an analogue interface (called composite or A/V), while the optical output is digital. What's more, fibre optic audio has only become available within the past few years, unlike composite which has been commonplace for decades.

In fact, it's even a chore to convert between digital coaxial and optical audio (the two most popular digital formats for audio today).

In the end, if you do manage to find a way to convert the signal, you're going to be left with a poor quality signal and much less money in your pocket. The best thing to do would be to upgrade your surround sound system to one that's more compatible with today's technology.

I'm assuming either 1) you mean your TV has optical IN, or 2) your satellite/digital cable box has the optical out...

i own a 42 inch vizio hdtv lcd my sound quality not that good sound goes from high to low what wrong?

Most tv nowadays has an option called Sound leveler or Auto sound. Try to enable or disable that. Lcds doesn't have good sound quality due to the size of the tvs. To get better sound you need to hook it up to a sound system.
