I have a Samsung HDR 50" series 6. It does not have any audio out put jacks. I went to the secret menu and enabled some thing and now it has a bluetooth option in the reg menue, but couldnt get it to pair with my speaker. The TV has a digital audio out jack. Was wondering if one of those interfaces that is a bluetooth transmitter with digital audio in would work

Yeah, you need a bluetooth transmitter connected to your TV audio out jack to make it work.

I tried three different D/A convertors and couldn't get one of them to work. One vendor said they had problems specifically with Samsung TV's.

some of the D/A converters will only accept a pcm signal from the optical output of the tv you would need to go into the tv,s sound menu and select that option to get it to work.

Find one on Amazon and I'm sure it will tell you.

Well I got the device that Shastagary suggested. It pairs with my speaker. The optical output is set to PCM (the only option) I even tried the RCA audio out of the Dish box and its optical out still no sound from my speaker. The Samsung TV has a Blue Tooth option but it and my speaker cant find each other

Well just that you know, problem solved. I have Dish with a hopper for a network box. I googled blue tooth for my Dish box and it sent me into its menu and to turn on the blue tooth option. Wa La it works. I never did get the TV blue tooth to work

My Sony TV ONLY has a digital fiber-optic audio output.

I went to Amazon and bought THIS -

It comes with a Fiber Optic cable.

It gives me L and R audio output that I plugged into a Bose Radio that is located under the TV.
The Bose has a remote control for adjustments from across the room.

It works GREAT!!!
