Question about Home Theater Systems
Having trouble swithing from tv to home theatersystem tv and dvd will both be on at the same time
SOURCE: hooking up home theater
In order to run sound out of the reciever, you must wire your reciever via optical cable or RCAs to your Cable/SAT reciever. In other words, think of it this way.
Samsung HTS ---> HDMI CABLE ---> HDTV HDMI #2
Cable/SAT Reciever --> HDMI Cable ---> HDTV HDMI #1
Samsung HTS ---> OPTICAL CABLE ---> Cable/SAT Reciever
Samsung HTS ---> RCA (Two for Stereo) --> Cable/SAT Reciever
You want your HTS connected directly to your TV in order to prevent piracy software restrictions limiting or hassling your viewing of different media. Without connecting either RCAs or a TOSLINK (Optical Cable) to your Cable/SAT Reciever from your Samsung unit, you won't be able to hear it's audio output. HDMI Takes care of Audio/Video together, unfortunately the Samsung unit limits you to a single HDMI Output and no inputs for your other units to plug into.
With a TOSLINK, press the AUX button on your Samsung remote to Digital Input. When using RCA cables, set it to AUX 1 or AUX 2. You must lower your TV volume and use your Samsung remote to increase the volume of your Surround system.
Hope this helps!

you need a fibre optical cable for this, simply you connect that from your dvd to tv and then set the input on the dvd to digi in. i have exactly same home cinema system.

LG documentation states: When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.
Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.
If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.
My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)
When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to
connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
