4 - Turn off the TV’s speakers using the TV’s Settings menu under “audio” or “speakers”.

 

Note 1: Newer TVs normally have a setup menu item for turning off speakers. Older TVs may have a speaker on/off switch on the rear panel near the audio output connectors.

Note 2: If the TV does not have a menu setting for turning off the internal speakers, exit the audio menu and reduce the TV volume to its lowest setting.

Note 3: Using the analog AUX input does not support Dolby 5.1 and DTS audio decoding.
