Hi,

I recently accuired a new (and very nice) Samsung UE46ES8005 TV that has tons of features and connectivity.
I just can't seem to find a way to stream the sound from the TV to the Squeezebox Duet attached to my stereo. Probably the TV need some SW to act as media server - has anyone heard of such a setup?

Thank you in advance!

Can't do that, nor would you want to for video. Your Samsung TV cannot act as the "server" for anything, including SqueezeBox players.
Your TV can connect to LMS server as a simple DLNA player for music, pics, video's on your TV.

If your TV is close enough to the PC you have running LMS, you might try running an audio cable between them and using the WaveInput plugin (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?35718-Announce-Wave-Input-plugin-v1-00&highlight=waveinput+plugin). Whatever audio is on the TV will now be available to all connected SB devices though it may be a bit delayed.

If you want to hear the TV audio through your stereo, just run a cable from the TV audio out to an AUX input on your stereo. If too far to run a cable, there are wireless solutions (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0U008N4223&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA) which may have similar latency issues.
