Cant Get Surround Sound To Work From the TV!!!!

Here goes........ basically my other half purchased an LG LH-D6230 5.1 surround sound system from ebay last week which arrived the other day. It didnt have the speakers, cables, remote or instruction guide with it but my mum had a spare set of Toshiba speakers that we could hook up to it and we downloaded the instruction manual from the LG website which was no probs. We then purchased an S Video cable to connect it to our TV, as the manual said it was the only cable we needed, but after all this we can only get the surround sound to work when playing CD's or DVD's but no sound when watching TV. (My TV is a Samsung LCD LE32A457C1D). Do I need any extra cables to get TV sound or will I need to buy an LG remote and change the settings to configure with my TV. Please help this is driving me nuts!!!

Also we have just realised that we are getting no sound from the centre and rear speakers. We checked that there wasnt a problem with the speakers or cables as these work fine in the other speaker slots so is this a settings problem?

Thanks in advance

    Hi ya. Ive just connected the Audio out from the TV (red and white holes) to the Aux IN holes on the DVD player but still nothing happens. Does it make a difference that I have freeview built into my TV? When I change the source button on my remote the freeview tv comes up as DTV but I still have to turn it over to S-Video to get to the DVD/CD player and to hear from the speakers.

    Any more suggestions welcome?!!

SOURCE: Surround sound from Sky +

To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.

You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.

Have u pressed the dvd/cd button on the dvd remote? I have had this set up for over 12 months and never had a problem with it. We have had my laptop connected to it playing mp3s from it through media player, had the karaoke machine connected up to it through the surround sound. It also plays mp3 cds which u may have created yourself.

SOURCE: Recommend cables to connect TV to Surround Snd speaker system.

Monster Cable RCA Cables are generally the best, they produce great sound while at the same time reducing the low frequency dirty power noise..

SOURCE: how can i get the surround sound to work.

You need to get an HDMI cable going from your Cable Box to the Surround Sound system. If you are low on HDMI ports, you can RGB cables for Video.

Your quote: " I have a HDMI cable plugged into the TV and the Cable box." move that cable to Surround Sound and Cable Box, and use RGB cable or HDMI to go from Cable box to TV!

If your Surround Sound has no HDMI, use a Fibre Optic to go Cable to Surround. It will work Great!

Good Luck!

I cant get the tv to go through the surround sound i can only get the surround sound to play when its a dvd playing do i need another wire to go from the dvd player or will it not work no matter what plz...


If you've got the Audio Input Source set as TV-Audio and it won't play as Surround Sound then you'll need to connect the Audio Out from your TV (if it has one?) to the Audio AUX IN on your LH-T360SE and change the Audio Input Source to AUX.

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


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.)

Center speaker and wireless rear speakers have no sound


I had the same issue, but apparently...it's not an issue. What I discovered is that the system was fine, but the station I was watching didn't broadcast in 5.1 surround sound. Therefore, only the front speakers will have sound. Try putting a dvd in, or listening to a gameing system through it. If you don't have sound after listening to something that puts out full surround sound, then you know you have an issue.

LG HT 503PH Hi-Fi Surround Sound only come with one black lead that fits into the TV but nowhere to fit into the DVD system


You need to get an optical cable (not supplied with the system of course!). Will cost about £20. That will fit from the sound system to the TV to give you 5.1 surround (else you're stuck with stereo) and THEN you need HDMI from your DVD to the TV... presuming that's the way you're going. Else it's whatever you output from DVD to the TV and then the TV sees you have optical out and pushes the sound to the 5.1 system.

No sound through tv speakers


Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)

As a general rule surround sound is only sent on HD signals for the dvd. Otherwise it comes to your home in basic stereo sound. Consult your user manual for ways to turn on simulated surround sound also known as Dolby ProLogic.
