Hello
If your LG unit to which you wish to give the audio output of your TV has an input [Audio In] socket, you cah connect it with using phono leads. In most cases, the audio equipements will have audio IN sockets with them; some have an RCA socet, otheres have stereo type sockets which accept external audio signals. Look keelnly on the back side of your audio equipment and find out which type is there, and buy a phono chord to suit the need. If there is no audio IN on your audio equipement, there is no way to connect. OK.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. I haven't bought the unit yet. I'm trying to find out if it's possible to connect to my tv for sound but can find no pictures of the rear panel or a user manual to show me this!!

    Just look out if there is any AUDIO IN socket at its rear. If it is there, you can surely connect it to your TV. ok.

  • terryguinan May 19, 2011

    That is my problem, I dont have the unit to look at. I am trying to find a picture of the rear panel or a user manual to see if this possible.

    If I could try to answer you more, I really want the BRAND NAME AND MODEL NUMBER of that device. Please provide it to me; and let me try to see whether there is an Audio In socket or not. More over, If you send your email address by FixYa, i'll send a copy of the manual of that device, If I gets it in my search. OK.

    Hi, thanks for all your help. The model is: LG HT805PH 5.1 DVD Home Cinema System. My email address is: terryguinan@aol.com. My other concern is that if tv's generally have a stereo sound output therfore the sound going into the unit is only in stereo. If I connected a scart lead from my cabletv box to my tv then an optical lead from my cabletv box to the home cinema sound unit, would that work better??

    I thinks that you have got the correct port to be connected with you home theater system with your tV. It is AUX IN. OK. Go to page [22] of that manual. All adjustments to be done are detailed there. OK.

    Hi, still no sign of manual, terryguinan@aol.com. I believe tv's generally have a stereo sound output therfore the sound going into the surround sound unit is only in stereo.

    The combination you sugested should not work. If you want 6 channels curround sound with picture in your TV, you have to connect your set top box to your home theater sytem with digital connection.[HDMI] and the video out of the set top box should be connected to TV, and Tv should be selected as monitor [AV]. If you failed to get the user manual of your home theater system, which I've send to you, try to download it from LG website, from where I've also downloaded. Type in "lg.com/support/download/manual" at google search box and press enter and wait the webset to get in. It will take some seconds, from where you can search and download the manual of your model LG device. OK.

  • terryguinan May 19, 2011

    Hi,

    Thanks for the link, found manual. I see that I can connect my tv to my surround sound unit using analogue phono leads, I doubt this is the best sound but unitll I get a new tv with the optical facility. Thanks for all your help.

Can't get sound when plug my Lg tv to my Yamaha amp model ax-396


What sockets are you using on the LG TV to connect to the amp?

Having viewed the back of that Yamaha amp, it has no digital inputs, for either coax or optical. Many modern TV's have no RCA audio out connectors. Though people think the component RCA type connectors are these. In fact connecting the amp to them will produce no sound at all.
If the TV has a scart socket you can get a scart to phono out lead and use the audio out from that, providing you are not using the scart socket for a video device. If you are you will need to also buy a scart switching box see image(s) below. These often have RCA audio out sockets on them so you wouldn't need the lead.
Both available on Amazon.
Alternatively you can consider upgrading your amp to one that has digital inputs. Thus getting Dolby Digital, if the TV has HD channels built in.

How do I connect my TV to a sound system?


In the absence of audio out it should be possible to use the scart socket by using a converting scart lead or adapter that provides a pair of phono leads or sockets.

Alternatively use the headphone socket to drive an amplifier or preamplifier designed to handle large outputs at very low impedance, similar to the active speakers used with computers.

The two audio sockets you are connecting your Receiver to are not audio outputs, but inputs to the TV. So you will never get to hear the receiver playback of your TV that way!
Your best bet is to use the HDMI sockets either HDMI 1 or 2 and get a HDMI lead and take that to your Receiver, which hopefully should have an HDMI socket!
This should also pass video as well as hi-fi signals to your receiever.

Audio line out does not work on Flat screen LCD TV


Is the external amplifier on 'mute' mode? Also check whether the audio out is available for this model, in the operation manual.

Hdmi is digital minded while your hi-fi is analogue signals, you have two possible options I think if your TV has no phono audio out.

Your scarts (number 1 only) will have analogue in's and out's a scart lead with audio in/out to phono (come with a switch mostly) or adaptor is required some I have seen at one time had a plug one end and socket the other with output phono's in the middle, so to monitor signals going each way (TV > VCR or VCR > TV).
If you are not using the scart then just a simple scart to phono will do, note scart sockets on an TV only one will give an output.

The other route is a converter for hdmi a device that will convert digital signals to analogue, while the video element can have problems (on cheap units) through poor design/technicals the audio should present no problem, look for hdmi to audio converters.

Hope this helps.........

My tv has one sub output socket,but my active sub woofer has a red and white input sockets.what lead do i need to connect it up with?


Sounds like the output on the TV is a phono socket or a jack and the inputs on the sub woofer take banana plugs. You need (or should make up) a lead with a phono or jack plug one and and two banana plugs the other end. (phono plug/socket has two connections and banana plugs just one)

If you can provide the model numbers of the two bits of equipment I can check this for you.

I have a scart(out) to rgb phono 3 plus 2 audio when I connect I get a message ;Mode not supported&; I am trying to free up a scart socket on my tv and also improve my picture.


Hi.
I think you are A little confused.
The 5 phono connections are for component this is not compatible with scart.
You may be able to use A svhs lead if your tv & item you wish to connect have svhs sockets & then usu red & white phono for the audio.

you cannot get your tv to play surround sound through the speakers, but if your tv has either a scart 21 pin socket or an audio out, you can fit a scart to phono adapter and connect the phono plugs to the audio left right input on your sound system, likewise if you have audio left and right output(phono) on the tv, connect to audio in on your unit. You should have a choice of output channels on the system menu, similiar to DVD/video1/video2 or output 1 and 2 or auxilliary 1 and 2
