The audio is coming from Speakers but not from the home theater

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

1 month ago I bought a new Apple TV. Mostly I use it for listening music. It was working fine until yesterday.

But today I have connected TV through an HDMI cable and also connected to the home theater through the audio cable (optical). I played music through my iPhone on TV. But the music is playing through TV not from the home theater. I checked all the connections and settings but could not understand where the problem is.

How can I get audio from Home theater? Please help me find the solution for my problem? Thanks in advance!
