Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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.

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.)
