Hi i have recently got a lg surround system without a manual, i think all the speakers are set up correctly as i have done a sound test on it and they all seem to make noise however i am having trouble...

You should have 2 RCA jacks on your TV and on the back of your receiver ... a white and a red. These are the left and right audio jacks. Generally, I hook up the audio out from the TV to the DVD player, then from there into the receiver ... this makes it easier to turn off the connection to your receiver if you want to use the TV speakers for news and whatever (by turning the DVD player off). Once the RCA cables are all hooked up, the information should have no problem transferring to your surround sound receiver. Now that the connections are all made, check the settings on your receiver. Make sure that you have the surround sound turned on, and that the receiver has all speakers selected (hunt through the menus and find the "dolby 5.1" or "THX" surround options and turn one on. This SHOULD resolve the problem.
If this did not repair your issue, make sure that all of your equipment that you are running through is all capable of surround sound (if you have a really cheap DVD player like me, it may not be able to handle surround sound). If your TV is surround capable (LCD, Projection, and Plasma TVs are usually all capable of this ... CRT tvs are not always capable) but your DVD player is not, hook your TV's audio RCA cables directly to your surround sound receiver and you should be set. If your TV and DVD player are not capable of Dolby or THX surround sound, then you will probably not be able to use that feature, so your satellite speakers might not work, but the main left and right should still work fine.
One other thing that I have had issues with in the past is the connections on the back of the receiver. If you are using speaker wire (a lot of newer systems have input jacks instead of wire because they are easier to deal with) then make sure you have stripped enough of the wire to make a good connection in the back of your receiver. If you have too little wire exposed, or if you have pushed the wires in too far, the insulator on the wire will block the connection. To be sure this is not the case, be sure that only the exposed part of the wire is sticking into the back of your receiver. Also, make sure that you are not trying to run too much wire between the receiver and the speakers -- if you have a 100ft wire between the system and the speakers, they might not be getting a strong enough signal to work -- you can buy a signal amplifier for your speaker wire, or you can use a shorter wire.
Most likely you have to find the settings in your menu and turn on the other speakers. If the sound test worked for all of the speakers, the connections are all good, and it is the system not telling the speakers to work.

Hi I've connected the game to the T.V. it works, but when I connect the system through my surround sound system I get only sound coming through the speakers and no video.

is the surround sound connected to the tv video input? if so, did you put your tv on the right video/ input setting that the surround sound is on?

How do you connect wii to a sony surround sound receiver

The best solution would be to see if your TV has and aux out for sound. It might also be called audio out. I would look like a red and white jack next to each other by themselves. Then you would take and audio cable and connect the audio out from your TV to the AUX in on the back of your Sony unit. Then select the AUX input selection on your Sony unit to hear the sound.

If you don't have an audio out on your TV then you can plug the red and white cables that go from your Wii console into the AUX input on your Sony unit. The only down side to this is you will ONLY have surround sound and no sound on your TV. Also you will have to pull your Wii cord apart a little bit to reach wherever you will need to plug them.

Please thank me if this helped.

How to hook up wii to surround sound

Put all the wires to the tv. Now you need another A\V cable (yellow, red, white) only use red and white from, audio out on tv to audio in on surround system and set it to TV. OR Put the red and white from Wii to surround system and the yellow to the tv. this way you have to use surround to hear it. The other way you can use the tv or both. The first way is ideal if you have an extra cable.

Video is black and white

Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it but I can't remember what it is. :-)

Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til you reach the correct setting.

It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.

Tune your tele and check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.

WII audio and TV audio simultaneously

do you have surround sound, if you do you will need to plug the wii hookups into the surround sound, or plug it into the tv and shut the surround sound off.
