I have been following the thread with interest.
I need to know how to connect my VEON VN50D3LED TV to a Samsung HWF450 soundbar

As has already been mentioned the ONLY output on the VEON TV is a Coaxial output.

Therefore I am 'dying' to know how the previous enquirer got on , following advice on this forum .

Someone gave a lead to a gadget listed on Trade Me But I was too timid to jump in when I don't know what I'm doing !

Avoid Trademe and get the adaptor from Jaycar as then if it craps out you can take it back http://www.jaycar.co.nz/productView.asp?ID=AC1598&w=toslink&form=KEYWORD

Thanks for the suggestion to buy from Jaycar rather than on TradeMe
I guess you are recommending I purchase a

Coaxial to TOSLINK Digital Audio Converter

or is it the other way round - TOSLINK to Coaxial Digital Audio Converter ?

Sorry but I need to have these things spelled out to me !

Sorry I am not familiar with the TV or soundbar, but you need to get whichever the TV outputs, going by what others have said in this thread its digital coax, and the soundbar has optical input.

So if the TV has coax output and the soundbar is optical input you need Coaxial to Toslink which is the one I linked to.

Many thanks

Yes my VEON TV has coaxial output and the Samsung soundbar that I have on order apparently has the appropriate input:

Check your TV menu and make sure digital out is enabled. It may be off by default.

ive got the coax to toslink working. used the converter from jaycar. you can just use a standard rca cable to connect the converter to the tv (obviously it will then be analog not digital)

It's still digital not analogue :)  It's a digital encoded signal on the coax.

In new window Veon TV to Samsung  sound bar help

 

                                             

 

          Following my enquiry on Geekzone on how to connect a particular SAMSUNG  soundbar to a particular VEON television set :   VN50D3LED VEON TV TO HW-F450 SAMSUNG SOUND BAR   I was given well-meaning advice from various GEEKS . Their replies were naturally based on the assumption that my VEON TV had one or some of the usual audio outlets. The GEEKS were amazed to learn that my VEON is sadly lacking in the  audio out department. Following that revelation the GEEK advice from one or two was to take the VEON back to 'where everyone gets a bargain' ie to where I purchased it . However I did not relish the thought of taking the 50" beast off the wall from where it was mounted .   So , instead I looked at other GEEK advice , most of which was too technical for me to understand :   eg Toslink - what an earth is that , I wondered .     In the end following advice from GEEK FORUM members Isw20 and kiwitrc , I proceeded as follows -

I  purchased from JAYCAR :

1x WQ-7293  Fibre Optic Toslink Plug Lead  0.5m  ( $9.90)

1x AC-1599 Coaxial to Audio Converter , includes 1x Power Adaptor in same box ( $39.90 ) Instruction sheet with diagram is included.  
                                                                                                                                                                       After a few anxious minutes  ( the Tosling ends would not fit in the holes - why didn't I know that you must   remove the clear plastic end pieces first !? ) -the connections were made .   Then nothing worked but only     because   I had failed to turn the wall plugs back on  (Groan )   All is now working - it just remains for me to       wall-mount the soundbar

My thanks to Isw20 , Kiwitrc    , for their advice
Thanks also to these two  posters , one of whom started  the thread with his initial post  :  Marksman33  , coolbananas

The fact they give you a coaxial digital out on the tv shows how much costcutting they have done on them, because those optical transmitters are _so_ expensive to add.

Ah , that inspired me to review my post :

As a newbie wannabe , I failed to   fully describe my purchase from Jaycar .

I should have said :

'Coaxial to Optical Digital Audio Converter' rather than just Coaxial to Audio Converter

Additionally , I mentioned Tosling instead of Toslink , at some stage

I want to be pedantic for the sake of any other 'layman' who needs as much help as I did
