You may have to set the TV output to stereo or matrix out. Also if the stations are not in stereo or surround it will not play in surround.
If you are connecting to a cable or satellite box and you are just using the coaxial input to the TV you may not get stereo. Some cable companies only send mono signal through the coax and you need to connect the tv to the box using component cables and the R and L audio connections.
There may also be settings in the receiver that you have to adjust to get surround from the TV.
You could connect the audio out directly to the receiver instead of the TV and just use the receiver for TV sound.

Hope this helps

Just bought lg ht44s home cinema to go with my lg tv connected hdmi lead can get radio and dvd surrond sound but not through my tv


Try going into menu-sound and enabling external speakers. I am not sure if this option is available. How is tv connected to your surround sound receiver? If it is component cable, try plugging them into the back of your surround sound receiver where the tv input is labeled. Then turn on your receiver and select tv from the mode button.

That shouldn't happen, what kind of cable are you using? you should try an hdmi cable. its electronic so it either works or doesn't and there shouldn't be any lag at all.

Can i use headphones on a lg HT503PH sound surround system


From viewing the user manual, I would say the jack in question is an input jack not an output jack.

Here's the manual:

How do i get my ps3 to run through my lg surround sound


Connect your yellow and red lead from the PS3 to the surround system, connect them to aux input. (the white lead is not needed). Then in the sound settings on the PS3, go to audio multi-output and change it to on. On your remote for the sound system press the input button until aux appears on the front of your LG HT303SU, and thats it, happy gaming.

5.1 sound from Sky hd through LG TV


link your optical cable from your HD box to your surround sound.
Then if you go into your HD services menu, press 4 then go to sound make sure its set to Dobly D
That should sort your problem out

We have recently just bought a samsung htx250r home cinema. we have a 50 inch samsung plasma, the dvd player sound works using the hdmi cable but the surround sound does not work when we are watching...


Salutations ddog,

Really this is a question of sources. The reason your able to hear surround sound when connected to your DVD player is that is what is providing your audio and video source. When your watching television it would depend on how your getting your broadcasts. If you are either receiving an over-the-air broadcast or cable directly to your set, your television becomes the source. As your television is providing the signal, you would need it to loop back to your receiver to provide that surround sound.

Now for the good news, if you have a cable or satellite box these should have outputs to connect to your receiver to provide the audio source.

Also keep in mind not all broadcasts provide a version of surround sound. Most newer home theater systems will replicate surround sound artificially.

I hope this helps.

CAN ONLY GET THE SURROUND SOUND TO WORK WITH DVD'S NOT WITH NORMAL TV OR SKY?? WHY??


You should have a AUDIO menu in which you can simulate true surround sound. This should be in your owners manual. Your DVD is recorded in dolby surround sound that's why on your set it will be reproduced as recorded. I hope Samsung is using a ATSC tuner in that model?
