Just got a yamaha RX-V650 AV Reciever & trying to connect an LG LH-T550 DVD/CD Reciever to it to play DVDS through YAMAHA surround.
Have connected VIDEO PLAYER WITH AUDIO OUT - OK
Have connected MINI DISC PLAYER WITH OPTICAL - OK
Will probably connect TV WITH OPTICAL - ?
LG DVD PLAYER ONLY SEEMS TO HAVE AUDIO IN INPUTS
CAN I USE S-VIDEO OUT TO GET SOUND ?
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!

Double-check your input cables from the receiver to the LG 389. Do you have the sat. receiver AV out connected to the front AV In on the LG DRT389? Make sure that you haven't mixed up the L and R audio connections on either side. (I've done something similar with RCA cables myself.) Next, try a different set of cables.
If that doesn't work, there may be a problem with the audio jacks on either your receiver or the 389. To check, plug the AV cables from the Sat. Receiver directly into the TV. If you have sound and video, then the input jacks on the recorder may be damaged.
Try using another input. (It looks like some models have the SCART input; you may need to set the input source in the menu under AV2 Decoder.)
The fact that you have audio output on USB and DVD's means that cables/connections between the LG289 and the TV are fine.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of which AV port you are using on the LG389 for additional assistance.
RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio. You need to connect the cable box also via spdif cable for audio to work. Look at the box if it uses optical spdif or coax spdif. If optical, you see that optical input on receiver is named DTV/CATV, so use also DTV HDMI for video. Coax spdif is named DVD, so in this case you will need to use DVD HDMI input. Also you need to configure the inputs accordingly.
I dont know about a universal remote my friend but a remote is defo needed to ajust and alter sound settings , I have the same system and it can not be done with the reciever alone. The AUX button on the remote has to be activated to get sound thru LG speakers providing your game console is connected to your TV, then a set of audio cables from your TV via the (OUT) ports (this is a must) back into you LG reciever. Goodluck
