Question about LG (GDR8164B) Internal DVD Drive

Can not use the 5.1 surround sound system

I have a brand new LG DVD model HT503TH and a Acoustic Solutions TV Model LCD40F1080P and I can get them to play though the 5.1 system. They are connected via a HMDI connection. When playing a DVD the sound comes through the 3 TV speakers and my front 2 speakers of my setup. When playing TV programmes only the 3 TV speakers are working. The DVD plays radio thru my front speakers OK. All speakers and the subwoofer are working on the DVD setup test. The only hope I have a present is to try thru the opical connection but I don't have a optical connection on my tele. Can anyone help

Stupid question, but you do have an optical lead connected? the hdmi will only produce stereo sound, you must also have an optical lead (aka tos link cable) connected to produce 5.1

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe


If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

Do an google search for your model and region hack, avoid sites that ask you to pay for the info. Not all models have hacks.

Turn the player off by pressing the standby/power off button. Hold down the stop button the player for around 10 seconds until 'unlock' appears on the screen. It should now be unlocked and the cd/dvd can be ejected.

LG HT 503PH Hi-Fi Surround Sound only come with one black lead that fits into the TV but nowhere to fit into the DVD system


You need to get an optical cable (not supplied with the system of course!). Will cost about £20. That will fit from the sound system to the TV to give you 5.1 surround (else you're stuck with stereo) and THEN you need HDMI from your DVD to the TV... presuming that's the way you're going. Else it's whatever you output from DVD to the TV and then the TV sees you have optical out and pushes the sound to the 5.1 system.

I cant rig up my surround sound to my tv


Run a phono cable from the tv output to a input on your system,select this input and you should have sound,if not go to tv menu for sound set up as some tv,s need the output turned up or even to be switched on.
hope this helps.
