Treat the Cable Box like any other audio device.

IF the cable Box has optical digital output, run it to the LG. Run the analog audio output of the Cable Box to the TV so you can watch lo-fi shows without the LG turned on.

The best Cable Box Video should go directly to the TV.

I need severe help. LG cant even help me. I have an LHT854 home theater system. The only time I can use surround sound, is if I watch a dvd player on it. My Tv's only "Out" is an Optical out....


Is the digital TV-related sound actually originating in the unidentified TV or would it be better to get it at, say, the Cable Box, which IS a hi-fi component, whereas TV's are amost always NOT so?

I'm pretty sure the TV manual may explain the use of its optical output.

I can't get the TV sound to play on the HT speakers


Ensure that you have an audio connection to your LG theater system from the TV, that is labeled as "audio out" or similar to "variable out" to an audio input on the LG system. You may use a pair of RCA type cables or sometimes known as composite audio cables. Then on the LG system, select the input to use that you connected your audio cables from the TV into. Disable the TV speakers. Decrease volume on the LG system, then increase the volume on the TV all the way up. You now can use the LG system as the master volume for TV.

Lg lht854 does not work tv sound


Ok your dish network wont play through the LHT854? Which Dish network receiver do you have 211, 311, 625, 612, 722? From the owners manuel for the LHT854 it looks like you can only hook up the audio from another source by an optical cable, so how is the LHT854 hooked up to the dish network receiver?

Is the Unit suppose to come with Audio Jacks or the progressive scan output jacks? Mine just came with one video Jack?


You need to go out and purchace a audio optical cable for your unit, it does not come with it because the device will give you sound with a DVD just not with your TV. the optical cable hooks up to the back of your TV and then to the back of your LG LHT854 player. You might have to adjust some of the options in your sound menu but once you have the cable you will be on your way to surround sound with all of your devices.

Picture in picture problem


When you use the Time Warner Digital box, you're using the tuner inside that box rather than the tuner inside your TV to select a channel. Picture in picture TV's have two tuner's inside so you can view two channels, but they can only tune the analog channels from your cable company, and only if it's hooked up in a manner that will permit this to happen.

So you only have one digital tuner (the Time Warner Box) so you can only view one channel at a time even though your TV supports Picture in Picture.

It MAY be possible to have limited use of the PIP if you connect your TV in a different way. Your Time Warner box is most likely connected to your TV set with composite cables, those are the Yellow, Red, White cables. If you buy a coaxial cable splitter and split the cable before it goes into the Time Warner box you can then run a coax cable into both the Time Warner box and the coax input on your TV. This would allow you to tune the analog Time Warner channels with both of your TV's tuners. In my area I think the first 60 channels or so are still available in analog, but there is no way to watch any of the higher premium channels without the Time Warner box.

If you go through these steps and you select the coax input on your TV your PIP will work on the lower channels. It MAY be possible to tell your TV to display the input from the composite cables on one of the PIP screens and the input from the coax on the other, but I kind of doubt it.

I know this sounds complicated and if you're not familiar with the way all this works it is complicated. The reason lots of people won't respond to this kind of question on this site is because there is no easy fix and by trying to help I run the risk of getting a bad rating. I don't get paid for this, I just like trying to help, so if I have not explained this in a way that's helpful to you please ask some additional questions before you give me a bad rating. Thanks.

It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure. From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables. From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable. From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right). Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
