Easy set up, Hook up all the components to the back of the TV normally and then use a stereo cable from the tv to your reciever.
Usually on the tv it says audio out or variable audio out, this will go straight to your reciever on one input allowing all devices on your tv to be hooked through your reciever on one cable and the sound will come from the tv and reciever at the same time or you can turn the audio off on the tv., you can also hook up any optical audio outs from your devices to your reciever as well. This will allow for surround sound to your reciever.

One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.
Sky box to TV using HDMI
LG HT805 to TV using HDMI. Even the Sky box audio will come back to the LG-HT through the audio return path.

There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

I am unable to connect my sky+ HD box, surround system and LCD tv together.I was only sold a scart cable and HDMI cable with the surround but am sure I need an audio cable or optical cable with it! please...

you need the fibre optical cable, that connects from your dvd to your tv and then you need to set the output on your dvd to digi in, that can be done by pressing aux on cinema system remote or function on the system it self.
i hope this does fix your problem, if it does please rate.

Connecting a dvd 250gb hard drive recorder to tv and virgin box

Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV.
Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel.
Post back if you need any more help

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Connecting ps3 to cinema system

There is no substitute for HDMI. However, the 'digital in' cable connection that you want to use is still digital and will sound almost exactly the same. The differences are barely noticeable to the human ear. Here is a list for you to see the pecking order of each type of connection.

Audio connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (digital)
2. Fiber optic (digital)
3. Coax - Digital (digital) <--- The one you want to use.
4. Component (analog)
5. RCA/AV (analog)

Video connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (full HD digital)
2. Component (Blue, green, red, white, red - HD analog)
3. S-Video
4. RCA/AV (Yellow, white, red)

Good luck!!

Picture problems


The pixelation is probably caused by MPEG2 compression on the DVD and Virgin media video streams, the blur is probably caused becasue you are displaying a standard definition signal on a high definition TV.

However if a high-def source still has these problems then you may have a faulty TV, your best bet is too hook up a high-def source such as a HD/Blu-ray player or PS3/360 games console.

Should a high-def source look ok, then you may have some look changing the display settings on the TV to try and improve picture sharpness and color balance.
