When you say both cables, i presume you mean the HDMI. If so, yes, both need to be used. The HDMI is for the Video to the TV in full HD (which you will want because you tv supports full 1080P and the HT player upscales to 1080P) and also for the Anynet functions to and from the TV to the HT.
The Optical transfers only Audio to the HT from what evr device you have connected. In your case the TV.
Without going into to much detail. i use a switch so i can connect several devices to the HT giving me the best sound possible.

Some TVs have headphone output. It is 6.3mm jack or 3.5mm jack. Often located on the back of the TV if it is a LED ord LCD TV.
You probably need an audio cable that has jack in one end and two RCA konnectors in the other.
If it isn't sound you're looking for, but picture, and your TV only have SCART or component image input, you need equipment with SCART output or component output. Some SCART plugs do have separated audio and component outputs.
Get a DAB (digital audio converter )from maplins ('40 quid) then connect your tv using optical or coax to your dab then use RCA cable fron dab to the analogue inputs on the LG and select 'cinema' on the equaliser to get all speakers.
Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.
Ok, the Audio can only be transfered to the HT if it is connected via something other than the HDMI, (the HDMI is just 1 way accept for the Anynet function (which is great with the 6 series. I have the LE52-A656))
The audio can be transfered via component cables but you will get the best out of your system using an optical cable. The main reason for optical is it ability to transfer 5.1. Only problem is the Samsung does not output 5.1!! bugger!! one you have connected it via the optical too. just set the HT to D-IN and you should be goo to go! :) There maybe something i have missed but Im at work at the mo but let me know how you get on :)
I received an e-mail from Samsung which reads
"What you have described in your e-mail was an issue that was logged and has been investigated we have released a firmware update to resolve the issue"
"In order for the firmware to be updated on the unit please call our product support team on 0870 726 7864 for assistance"
