My TV is not compatible with Satellite receiver and can't control sound. Was told by cable provider that we had to switch to the cable with blue,green,red ends and move yellow and white to audio out place. The TV remote now will not control the sound. Prior to this we were using a huge video type cable but apparently this is no longer allowed. Can anyone help? Thanks

I hope I am correct in thinking you have cable or satellite dish TV service. If so . . .
Before calling your cable or satellite TV service provider technical service number, try this:
* Make sure your TV and cable/satellite TV service receiver are off.
* Unplug the main TV service reciever from the electric outlet.
* Wait about 1 minute.
* Plug the power cord for the receiver back in.
* Turn the TV and receiver box on.
It may take a few minutes for the TV service to cycle back on.
If that does not work, then call the technical customer service number for your cable or satellite service. Note: You will need to have your customer account number and maybe a PIN handy when you call.
If the steps I provided above work, please write them down and keep with your TV information to refer to again in the future, if needed.
It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.
Here's what I would do first. Unplug the satellite receiver and TV from the wall outlet, then plug them both back in and allow them to reboot. Once they have rebooted, see if you have sound. If not, you may have to call the satellite provider for furthur troubleshooting. Also,do you have anything else hooked to your TV with HDMI? (DVD or Blu-Ray player for instance?) Do these work properly? If so, I would assume you have a problem in your satellite receiver. If not, you have a problem in the TV.
I hope this helps. You have to connect your sound bar to your cable box/satellite tv receiver. If you are connecting with composite or component cables you connect the video cables (either the yellow or the green blue and red cables) between the television and the cable box /satellite tv receiver. Then you connect the red and white audio portion of the cable between the cable box/satellite tv receiver and the sound bar. You are going from the OUTPUT of the cable box/satellite tv receiver to the INPUT on the television and sound bar. You use the function/source/input button on the sound bar to choose the space you plugged the cables into on it or listen to the radio or listen to your IPOD and etc.
OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.
Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:
1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.
2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.
3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.
I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.
My spouse dropped the remote & lost the "connection", I called the cable company who said to set the TV to Video 1 but after that didn't work. After some discussion about what was plugged into the DVR I was told I actually needed Component 1. That worked. Hope that helps.
That is because you didn't have the audio input connection right. 1. HDMI cable going from the Samsung tx72 output to Your Samsung TV HDMI input 2. 2. Non HD directv box Left and right audio output should be connected directly to the Samsung DVD receiver under Satellite input.Select"Satellite"for the sound from your Samsung tx72.You are good to go! Joe
You can connect the inno via the home doc and the provided cable in the home kit. You may have to connect to an unused component on the receiveer (VCR comes to mind)...You move the VCR source on your receiver and you should be good to go.. I have a Pioneer Elite receiver but Pioneer makes no cable to connect those two ..no matter... I wanted to control the Inno from outside the receiver's controls.. Sam
