Lemme just show you my situation:


Will connecting my PS4 to the TV with an optical audio cable fix my problem of not getting audio from the speakers?

I use a similar setup and it should work just fine. Just some key points to check. Make sure the ps4 is set to output sound over hdmi. Also the 3.5mm cable should be plugged into an audio out or headphone port on your tv, not sure which you have since I don't know the model. Because the audio is passing through the tv, you'll have to make sure the sound is turned up on the tv as well as the speakers.

Yeah, I just figured that out... that L/R jack i was looking at on the back of my TV was for component video, not audio. I plugged it into the headphone jack and no problem. Silly me.
