When I switch on my Onkyo amp and select CBL/SAT it stays for a few seconds then selects through the other input options such as Game/TV, DVD so have to keep pressing CBL/SAT to keep on that input after several unsuccessful tries. Has anyone help with this annoying problem? Thanks.

Re: Input selector keeps changing when select one
Try resetting the amp by leaving it unplugged from the wall overnight, and then fire it up in the morning.

To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.
It sounds like you don't fully understand the Onkyo's HDMI port assignment procedures.
But why burden an HDMI cable with audio only? Don't you have a coaxial digital or spdif optical output on the PC you could use? That would make things simpler for setup. Just jam it into one of the appropriate audio inputs on the Onkyo.
you're right, it definitely shouldn't be doing that! i know that your cables are probably ok, but it sounds like you might have a little software glitch or something going on. i would highly recommend upgrading your cables to HDMI. not only will you have fewer wires to deal with, you will also be upgrading both your sound and your video quality. in addition, the HDMI connections should be totally seperate from the other connections internally. you might luck out and find that only the analog side of things was afflicted. check out Newegg.com. you can get a 6' cable for $10.
That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.
IFF YOU ARE USEING HDMI FROM AMP TO TV SET HDMI OUT PUT ON IN AMP MENU, FIRST BY GOING TO SET UP MENU IN/OUT ASSIGN PRESS ENTER ,MONITOR OUT NOW ON AMP, PRESS ENTER TO SEE HDMI MNTR AND PRESS RIGHT ON ENTER BUTTON TO SWITCH ON.IFF YOU ARE NOT USEING HDMI TO TV LEAVE HDMI OFF AND PRESS DIGITAL INPUT BUTTON ON FRONT OF AMP TO SELECT THE TYPE OF CABLE YOU ARE USEING FOR AUDIO,EG OPT1 OR2 COAX 1 OR 2,IFF YOU ARE USEING PHONO CABLES SELECT _ _ _ .MAKE SURE OUT PUT ON SKY IS SET TO RGB.
Yes, switch to the video input that you are trying to configure (i.e. video 1-4). Press the menu button on the receiver or the remote and cycle to video settings. There should be a setting that says "video output" or "output" - set that to component. You may also have to configure the Input for that particular setting. For instance, if you have an HD tivo going into component 2 but you want it to be Video 1. Select Video 1, hit the menu button and scroll to video setup. Select video input setup and cycle it to component 2. Next, use the menu to cycle to video setup, select video output, switch to component. This should solve your problem. As a sidenote, you may also have to configure the audio in/out if you're using digital coax or optical. Let me know if this works.
