Re: How to redirect the sound of my new LG 52" HDTV LCD...
There is a couple of options here. If you are using a DirecTV Receiver or a box from the cable company then you want to run the Audio out lines to your Audio/Surround Sound Receiver. If you are running cable directly into the TV then you want to use the Audio Out Plugs on the TV. In some cases there is no Audio out but there is a Headphones out. In this case you can run a Mini-Plug to Composite Audio cable to the receiver.
You can also Call 1-800-GeekSquad and they will dispatch an Home Theater Installer to resolve your problem! They are great for Turn Key Solutions!

I'm unclear about the comment"If I play a DVD or net fix through separate box" What do you mean by separate box? Please reply.Be specific about what inputs on the tv and what settings you have check in menu as far a sound id concerned.
You will only be able to use the HDMI if you tv has an output for it(for other things beside built in DVD player of home theatre). It can not be an input. If you want everything that plays through your tv to then play through your home theatre the easiest way is to use white and red composite audio cables(some call them rca cables) More than likely you tv will have this output.They will go from the output of the tv to the input of home theater. If your home theater has a Blu-ray or DVD player you need to use the HDMI from home theatre out to in on the tv. If you tv happens to have and OUTPUT for fiber optic audio or digital coaxle audio on your tv and your home theatre has same but as inputs that will work as well with a better quality sound. However this is very rare.
the LG has optical audio out put. If the samsung has the same optical input,then use an optical toslink cable to connect and select that input. Other wise Gefen(co) makes optical to analog adaptors available on ebay. You may also be able to run the audio out of you sat reciever or cable box directly to the "aux" inputs of your samsung via reg rca stlye cables and select that input!
There are a few reasons that this could happen. The main reason would be that the tv is on the incorrect channel or input. You will want to make sure that if you are at TV1, the channel is on 3 or 4, and an input if needed, such as VIDEO 1 or 2. If at TV2, the channel needs to be on 60 or 73. Cabling is another reason this could be. You want to make sure that if you are at TV1, all cables going from the receiver to the TV are connected on the back of the receiver at the green TV1 location. For TV2, the cable needs to be connected to the HOME DISTRIBUTION output on the back of the receiver.
Sound like ur Tuner board have intermitint problems,it work awhile,than the old problems occur again.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish Tuner board for the replacement.Because this problems come and goes.
There sould be audio outputs on the back of it, and the manual should clearly show how to set up a home theatre with an external sound system and all.
I don't know what kind of sound system you have, but I think it might be best to connect your video source (typically DVD player) to your sound system, as it usually can be done better that way. No need to introduce another link in the chain (your TV) that could degrade sound. Also any external tuner could (should) be connected to your sound system directly.
If you use the internal tuner in your TV to watch TV the audio out is your option. Best way to get this right is to consult the manual. They usually have some diagrams that shows a few options of how to do it.
