No hearing aid in my future, When people complain about TV being too loud I tell them "my left ear is shot"
It actually is, I got shot through the head and the bullet went in my left ear and is still in my head, against the inside of my jaw on the right side.
Well, I tried to hook up a RCA cable to the audio outputs of the TV and into my receiver. Unfortunately, I don't have an antenna on the TV and had no channels available to test. ( antenna is on a hdhomerun tuner, upstairs in another room.)
However, I did check in my manual and accordingly on page 39 it indicates that the only sound of available from the TV with the speakers off would be the optical output only.
It also notes that if connecting to an amplifier with the audio outputs with the speakers to on, set the TV volume low and use the amplifier to adjust volume. That indicates to me you must leave the speakers set to on to have any outputs from the RCA jacks on the back.
I hope this will help somewhat. You probably found this already.
Really sorry and sad to hear about that terrible injury. I can't imagine having to endure something like that.
My hearing loss is mainly due to thousands of hours in airplanes. I'm a retired pilot. Last time I had it checked a few years back, they said it was about 30% high-frequency hearing loss. So, I'm with you on high-volume! But, my wife understands I need it!
I certainly hope you keep your great inventory of parts. I've had this set for 10 years and try to maintain it immaculately. I clean out all the dust every year and have a USB fan running on the side of it. Just hoping and praying it keeps going. My intent is to stay with 1080p, I don't care about 4K. And this set is still a Marvel to me! They should have never stopped making them! You just can't hang it on the wall, but who cares?
