I have bought an LG Mini home theatre, model FB162, and am not quite sure how to connect it to my television, an LG42LC2D. At the back of the home theatre there are 3 holes for Component video out, these are red, blue and green. There is also another hole for Video out, thsi is yellow. I have never seen a cable with these colours and also my TV only has 2 Audio input holes, white and red, and a video input hole which is yellow.

Observe the back of your tv and look for audio out it is commonly colored white and red use a rca jack and connect it to your theatre speaker audio in also located at the back of your home theatre, hope this help good day and best regards.
You will only be able to use the HDMI if you tv has an output for it(for other things beside built in DVD player of home theatre). It can not be an input. If you want everything that plays through your tv to then play through your home theatre the easiest way is to use white and red composite audio cables(some call them rca cables) More than likely you tv will have this output.They will go from the output of the tv to the input of home theater. If your home theater has a Blu-ray or DVD player you need to use the HDMI from home theatre out to in on the tv. If you tv happens to have and OUTPUT for fiber optic audio or digital coaxle audio on your tv and your home theatre has same but as inputs that will work as well with a better quality sound. However this is very rare.
YOU NEED TO CONNECT OPTICAL CABLE (NOT INCLUDED) TO OPTICAL1 CONNECTION ON YOUR HB405 AND OPTICAL OUT OF YOUR TV. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE DONE THAT TRY PRESSING SIMPLINK BUTTON ON YOUR TV REMOTE NAD CHANGE THE SPEAKER OUTPOUT FROM TV TO HT(HOME THEATER).
if your tv and home theatre system as all hdmi or component hook ups then follow these steps but only use all one or the other cables.
1. hook the cable from the ps3 to the home theatre "imput slot" (you choose which one you want to use)
2. hook a cable to the output slot on the home theatre system to your imput slot on your tv.
3. turn on all three systems, put your home theatre system on the correct function (which ever slots you decided to put the cables in to the input slots) then turn your tv to the correct AV channel
There is a couple of options here. If you are using a DirecTV Receiver or a box from the cable company then you want to run the Audio out lines to your Audio/Surround Sound Receiver. If you are running cable directly into the TV then you want to use the Audio Out Plugs on the TV. In some cases there is no Audio out but there is a Headphones out. In this case you can run a Mini-Plug to Composite Audio cable to the receiver.

There sould be audio outputs on the back of it, and the manual should clearly show how to set up a home theatre with an external sound system and all.
I don't know what kind of sound system you have, but I think it might be best to connect your video source (typically DVD player) to your sound system, as it usually can be done better that way. No need to introduce another link in the chain (your TV) that could degrade sound. Also any external tuner could (should) be connected to your sound system directly.
If you use the internal tuner in your TV to watch TV the audio out is your option. Best way to get this right is to consult the manual. They usually have some diagrams that shows a few options of how to do it.
