I am trying to use airport express to play music from my TV in a different room from my imac G5.

I have connected all the cables correctly (I think) but the airport express just flashes orange.

itunes picks it up but TV doesn't seem to play sound. I have a samsung flat screen tv.

I also tried via the optical cable on my DVD player but also no success.

I think perhaps all the plugs must be Audio Out rather than in. There seems to be no indication though.

If i get something like the ltec Lansing VS2321 Powered Audio System. woofer + 2 speakers would that be easier.

Does anyone have any ideas.

Thanks

First, I'd just try plugging in a pair of headphones or computer speakers, to make sure the music is being transmitted correctly.

If it is, then you should be able to use a standard 3,5mm plug to chinch adapter to plug the audio into your TV's chinch inputs.

Or which inputs were you using on the TV?

had the headphone idea aswell and they work so i guess it is the TV.

I was connecting the airport to TV via chinch adapter in audio in area but the tv was not picking up the signal.

I will invest in some speakers.
