Connecting tv/dvd combo to reciever to obtain surround sound
I have an Akai 3 way combination unit that I would like to connect to my reciever so that I can listen to dvd in surround sound. the unit has a "digital audio out optical" connection which is supposed to go to the "digital audio in" on the reciever via an optical fiber cable. I am having trouble identifying the correct connection on the receiver. Is it the dvd/dvd 6ch connection? I havent bought a cable yet. Want to make sure I can actually connect the two units before I invest..

Try connecting earphones or headphones to the 3.5mm Headphone socket on the TV and check this works correctly, i.e hear TV when watching TV, hear DVD when watching a DVD etc.
If all is OK, purchase a 3.5mm Jack to L/R Audio/Phono cable. Connect the 3.5mm jack in to the headphone socket on the TV and connect the red/white phone ends to the 5.1 surround system.
It should solve it. SCART out is not always live in all sources so is not a reliable way to connect.
hello there. name is ryan lets see if this helps.
typically in a combination unit there is no rca audio ouputs on the tv. reason being is it is a combo unit not meant to be a item within a home theater system. it has the whole home theater built in it. ;) however if there is any audio output jacks on the tv you should be able to wire the surround sound unit up via rca cable output from tv to input on reciever for surround sound
S-Video is a media type that only carries video. Unfortunately the LG unit was designed only to be a self contained surround sound unit. There are only video outputs to the television on this unit. Because of the unit having surround sound capabilities, LG felt that their wasn't a need for audio output. You would need to buy a new DVD player to allow audio from the DVD to your new Yamaha unit. Good Luck!
your set has a coaxal DIGITAL output so you must have a coaxal digital input to your reciever and that input must be assighned in the reciever to the selected input. page 10 of your manual explains how to hook up to the tv. your receiver's manual will tell you how to assighn the coax input.
