So is the DVD part missing? There is a VCR / Aux input on the back but it is for audio only. There are no video inputs so if the DVD is not included in your sub/speaker system, you'll be limited to audio only. First, you'll need to connect a TV to your system using one 'Video Out' cable methods so you can see the menu for the remote control changes on the system. From here there are 2 options:
Connect up a working DVD player directly to your TV using the best option available. Use the audio outputs on your TV to connect to the VCR or TV input on the system box. (Using standard RCA cables.) You may need to enable the external audio outputs on the TV. (Check the setup -> audio menus etc.)
You can use this as an audio amp by connecting a RCA cord from the a DVD R/L audio outputs to the VCR-Aux input on the amp box. You will need to run a separate video feed from the DVD directly to your TV. (Select the desired input on the TV to watch a DVD.)
You'll need to do a lot of switching back and forth with multiple remotes to get everything working, but the speaker setup can be made useful if it still works.
It's the other way around its from TV to Receiver. Usually theres a DVD IN & VIDEO IN on the receiver. The TV will have an AUDIO OUT on the back or front side. Make sure you're going from TV AUDIO OUT and into RECEIVER (VIDEO IN for your normal cable) or (DVD IN for your dvd player) in order to hear the sound on your receivers audio system.

Hope this may help;
how many audio input does your cinemate have? in case you only have one, you need an audio video switcher. a sample picture of what you need is on this link > http://electronicsusa.com/svs14.html
find what you need, that is just for you to see what its look like.
another thing is check you dvd if it has a line input - meaning it allows you to connect another source into your dvd such as vhs, cd, mp3. for for audio video - you need 3 wires (video/audio left-right), for stereo audio - 2 wires (left/right connection). some dvd player call it as line1 and line2 inputs. if you have it then you should be ok. 3rd approach, a simple audio mixer with minimum 3 inputs and 1 ouput is enough. note: last thing, check your connection interface for connection compatibility if you plan to buy audio video switcher or audio mixer. hope this help. regards, cebuwano
You might have connected your TV/Stereo Receiver up to the wrong audio outputs of the DVD player. Make sure you are coming out of the FRONT left/right audio outputs and not the CENTER?REAR left/right audio outputs.
S-Video is a media type that only carries video. Unfortunately the LG unit was designed only to be a self contained surround sound unit. There are only video outputs to the television on this unit. Because of the unit having surround sound capabilities, LG felt that their wasn't a need for audio output. You would need to buy a new DVD player to allow audio from the DVD to your new Yamaha unit. Good Luck!
