    Yep, we have the same probem with our LG HT903TA, we purchased the unit to get surround sound from our new new LG plasma hd and foxtel hd. The manual instructs for 5.1ch ez set-up - to connect the unit's optical in jack to the jack on optical out of our tv, did that; no sound! When playing a dvd in the unit, crisp, wonderful surround sound but when we watch tv or foxtel hd - only the two front speakers give out sound, that sucks! Cannot find a solution, very disapppointed.

    Same problem here. Can't get surround on the TV or on the LG blu-ray player which came packaged with the HT903TA!! Only comes out through front-center, left and right speakers (no subwoofer either from what I can tell).

    Had it all professionally installed by the shop I purchased it from (along with the plasma TV) so I assume everything is plugged in correctly via HDMI, optical audio etc.

    Not so fussed about surround while watching TV, but it's ridiculous to only have 2.1 channels on the blu-ray!

On the LG DVD remote press the VSM button (just to the right of the volume button) until PL II MOVIE is displayed on the DVD front panel. This will send sound to the back speakers as well as the front.

(I still don't think this is true 5.1ch surround sound however but the cloestest I've been able to get)

BTW you'll need to have an optical audio cable connecting the Plasma / LCD and the DVD. DVD input will need to be set to AUX OPT.

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.)

OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.

Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:

1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.

2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.

3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.

Hope this helps!

One way is to run a set of red white rca stereo audio cables from the back of your tv's red,white audio out plugs to the audio in plugs on durabrand hometheater system which are colored red and white. Most tv's will output audio signal automatically but some tv's like sony you need to go into menu of tv and under sound settings switch audio ouput to audio system if the sound doesn't come out automatically. Make sure you but durabrand hometheate system on correct input which should be labeled on back of durabrand system where the red and white audio in plugs are. Good Luck!

Surround sound ok whilst playing dvd but not working for tv


On your Sagem TV you should have two RCA ouputs (red and white connection usually marked ouput) ) Connect these to the input on the surround system using the interlink cable.

You should then be able to hear the sound from the TV by changing the SOURCE on the home cinema remote.

Better still if you have a digital out on your TV use that instead.

Surround Sound Not Playing For TV Programs


Greetings jdm12,

I can understand your problem, I have some what of the same issues with my home theater setup when watching events. One of the only suggestions I can make is adjusting the "Dolby Pro Logic II Mode". After reviewing your owners manual it appears you should be able to change the mode by pressing the PL II Mode button found in the lower keypad on your remote. It appears the options you should have are Music - Cinema - Pro Logic - Matrix - Stereo. You may want to try Music or Stereo when watching your events. In Stereo setting it should provide sound out of the front speakers and sub-woofer only. In Music, there are more processing that is done so you could hear more then just the front speakers.

I hope this makes your next your next PPV Party a big hit!
