I have a computer hooked up to a Toshiba 26AV500 TV with an HDMI cable. The TV has a Variable Audio Out with RCA cords as well as a Digital Optical Audio-Out, that is hooked up to my amp (which is then connected to my studio monitors). Neither the Digital Optical nor the Variable RCA outputs are sending any signal.
The signal is being lost between the TV and the amp. I can plug the computer directly to the Amp, but the signal gets lost when I try to use the TV as an intermediary.
Since neither my amp, nor my computer has a remote control, I would like to be able to use the TV remote to control the volume of the studio monitors from different places in the room when I am mixing, without manually changing the volume on the amp.
What could be the cause of the problem?
