Your TV almost certainly has stereo audio outputs and your receiver is
sure to have them. They use RCA connectors like we used to use to
connect VCRs to TVs. Red and white for audio and yellow for video. You
won't need the yellow for this application. You'll be limited to
Some HDTV's have coaxial or optical audio outputs. Your receiver may
have compatible inputs. If so, you'll have surround again.
Post the make and model numbers of your TV and receiver and I'll check
for a solution.
A good place to find cables and other electronic gizmos and supplies
is monoprice.com. I've shopped there for years and have always been
pleased with the quality, prices, and service.
