What is the TV source?

If you have a coax (antenna or some cable systems) to the TV, then you need to connect the surround sound system to the audio out of the TV. Depending on the TV, the output could include Digital audio, RCA audio (red/white) or a headphone jack. Without knowing which LG TV model, I can't be sure which ones you have. Get the best cable for your TV/receiver system and connect that. Then set the TV to use the external speakers.

If the source is a set-top box, then the cables should run HDMI from the box HDMI out to the receiver HDMI in and then from the HDMI out of the receiver to the HDMI in on the TV. (Most TVs do not have HDMI out.) If the unit still doesn't play the audio, first try new cables and make sure the correct source is selected (some receivers have multiple HDMI in). Make sure the speaker cables are all connected (if they have separate connections) and that everything has power. (One of the usual speaker system problems in my house is loose cables from someone knocking against the back of the entertainment center and pulling.)

If you need more help, please provide more information on your equipment. I will do my best to help you diagnose the problem.

Connect tv to surround sound system


Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)

If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.

CaRC not working on my vsx823


With some of these elaborate setups, the receiver overrides your settings and connections to configure a default arrangement for certain functions. The rationale for this is often buried obscurely in the equipment instructions. You may have to resort to trial and error, connect and disconnect to get a satisfactory result.

I installed a HDMI cable and an Optical cable to whatch movies and shows from my LG HD LCD TV, but nothing seems to work. The stereo is also a LG LHB336 system. Which is compatible with the TV. We were...


Hi,Even though you have done some cabling already,for the sake of correct connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You can select whichever you want..

TO WATCH DVD ON THE TV:
** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand )
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or "Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV ,
** than just switch to DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD
*
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

TO LISTEN YOUR TV ON SURROUND SYS.
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV ,
** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective SOURCE mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
*
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..


Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..

There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the
Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

I want to play normal tv sound thru the surround sound, but do not know what cables to use? i have an LG 460 tv, and a sanyo dc-ht818, it doesnt seem to have TOSLINK or HDMI inputs, so what can i use?


The Sanyo has stereo analog LINE INPUT jacks. Run two RCA audio cables from the TV to these jacks and select this LINE INPUT FUNCTION on the Sanyo. If the TV has no analog audio output jacks you can even use the headphone output by using a 3.5mm adapter to RCA audio connectors.

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

How do i use it so my tv programming is in surround sound?


if the Comcast cable box has an HDMI output, it should connect directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Then connect the LG DVD unit HDMI output to the second HDMI input of the TV. Use two HDMI cables. Do not buy the expensive Monster HDMI cables. If you have already done so, I recommend you take it back for a refund, then buy the low cost HDMI cables which will work just as good and then you can bank the savings toward a new Porsche Boxter!! Now we have the video connected from both the cable box and the LG system.

Now--what do you do if the cable box does not have an HDMI output--just use its component output and your component cable (red, blue and green) to connect to the TV component input. This will still get the video to the TV and good HD pictures. Hum--do you have an HD cable box? You did not say and I just assumed that you did since you got the HDTV. If not, let me know with a follow up question and I will assist in that area further.

Now for the audio connections--The DVD player will not need any connections since it in the LG unit. The sound will come out the speakers when you start playing the DVD. The cable box is where we get the TV audio to feed the LG unit. If the cable box has an optical output, use an optical cable (again the low cost one)and connect to the optical input on the LG.
This will get the TV audio to the surround system. If no optical output, use the red and white (left/right) audio connections and connect to one of the two the LG audio inputs. To hear TV audio on the LG speakers, just switch to that input or the input associated with the optical input.

To watch DVDs, switch the TV to the HDMI input to which you connected the LG unit. For TV, go to the other HDMI input (or component input).
Switch the LG to the audio input to which you connected the cable box to get TV sound.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

How can i get the surround sound to work.


You need to get an HDMI cable going from your Cable Box to the Surround Sound system. If you are low on HDMI ports, you can RGB cables for Video.

Your quote: " I have a HDMI cable plugged into the TV and the Cable box." move that cable to Surround Sound and Cable Box, and use RGB cable or HDMI to go from Cable box to TV!

If your Surround Sound has no HDMI, use a Fibre Optic to go Cable to Surround. It will work Great!

Good Luck!

No surround sound when attaching hdmi to TV


Try running the optical TOSLINK cable from the TV to the receiver. If the TV doen't have a digital optical output, then try going into the menu on your cable box and setting the audio output to the digital optical out. Also check your TV menu and make sure NETCOMMAND is diabled. Some of your newer HDTV have Netcommand that allows the TV to control other devices through the HDMI cable.

Audio via hdmi


Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
