HDTV box from cable provider wired to Samsung HDTV.
Fiber optic audio from HDTV to SONY Reciever.
SONY Receive has Bose 6.1 Acoustimass home theater system.
I can hear a hum when receiver volume is turned up. Hum is not present when using HDTV volume.
If it is a new set up, make sure properall connector are properly connected. Have you tried removing the Bose just to isolate the trouble, just to pinpoint the source of that HUM. The sony is amplifying some unwanted signal.

You will only be able to use the HDMI if you tv has an output for it(for other things beside built in DVD player of home theatre). It can not be an input. If you want everything that plays through your tv to then play through your home theatre the easiest way is to use white and red composite audio cables(some call them rca cables) More than likely you tv will have this output.They will go from the output of the tv to the input of home theater. If your home theater has a Blu-ray or DVD player you need to use the HDMI from home theatre out to in on the tv. If you tv happens to have and OUTPUT for fiber optic audio or digital coaxle audio on your tv and your home theatre has same but as inputs that will work as well with a better quality sound. However this is very rare.
the LG has optical audio out put. If the samsung has the same optical input,then use an optical toslink cable to connect and select that input. Other wise Gefen(co) makes optical to analog adaptors available on ebay. You may also be able to run the audio out of you sat reciever or cable box directly to the "aux" inputs of your samsung via reg rca stlye cables and select that input!
You can purchase a fiber optic cable from Sears or any store with an electronics department i.e. RadioShack or Walmart or even a Fry's or HH Gregg and etc. I recommend a sound bar that has a digital audio input because it does not sound like you are interested in having seven speakers going all the way around the room
As I see it this TV has no optical digital audio input. The connection on the rear of the set is "Digital Audio Out (Optical)", not in. I think you need to run a HDMI cable from the cable box to the TV to get digital audio.
Get a fiber optic (Toslink Optical) cable to plug into the TV's optical OUT between the red/white RCA audio and the spot where you plug in your cable TV, to the Optical IN on your HT-DS610. This way all audio coming in to your TV from any source goes directly to your hi-fi in all it's splendor.
If your audio system doesn't have optical inputs you're going to have to use RCA (red and white) jacks. I would suggest upgrading to a system in the future that does have optical inputs if at all possible. Excellent sound.
check the wires, use a hdmi cable. one wire connects the sound and picture. other than that you will have to use the 3 componets wires and a seperate connection for your sound. example would be audio hook up or fiber optic cable
you can run a fiber optic cable out of the tv into the surround system if the sytem has a fiber optic input, or your tv should at least have red and white rca cables for audio out, then you just pick any input on the surround sound and any audio from dvd players ect thats hooked up to the tv will be sent through that one input on the surround sound. The only thing you'll have to do is turn the volume up or down on your sound system.
