I am using Plex Media Server latest version and Samsung TV which is connected via digital audio out. Everything works great, just the sound via digital out not, it just makes static noise?
I would be thankfull for any advice.
Thank you very much
Best regards from Germany

    Dovla311, you are NOT stupid. I have been fighting with this for a week. Samsung Tech support was useless. My headphones worked at Best Buy, using the optical and a converter with this TV. I get it home and only noise from the digital out?? It made no technical sense at all and still doesn't. I saw your comment, switched from Dolby to PCM and it worked!! Thank you for sharing.
