I connected my Samsung Smart LED TV to my Logitech Sound system using an Optical to Digitial Converter. The system works fine when watching TV, sourced from an HDMI box, i.e. I can control the volume from the TV remote.
Now, I connected an external drive to the TV to watch movies. I can control the volume when using the TV speakers however the TV remote volume controls don't work when I witch over to the Toslink audio output. The problem is that it seems that nothing is coming out from the Optical to Digitial Converter. I tried controling the volume of the Logitech Sound system but nothing.
The problem is that when I source the TV from an external source, I can't get any output from me sound system. Am I missing something?
