AV Buffs Help Needed
The optical connector is for sound only. Try connecting the Sky box to the TV as you have done in the past, you should get picture and sound. You may also have sound on the TV depending on the connection but you can just turn it down and make better use of the new surround box. HTHPosted 6 years ago
I just maybe trying the impossible but here goes.
Just bought my Daughter the LG HB44s mini surround system
LG HB44s surround sound
I am trying to link it up with a Thomson (White) sky+ box.
By this i mean watching tv and putting the audio through the LG surround system.
I have linked the two by an optical cable, but all i get is the sound through the LGHB44sPosted 6 years ago
but no picture.
Any help here be grateful or am i trying something thats just not going to happen?
Un-sure on what your saying but this is what i have connected.
The Sky has the scart to scart to the TV. To play DVDs i have the HDMI going to the TV.Posted 6 years ago
I don’t see any other way looking at the Manual.
Auto selecting might be the Simplink getting in the way, this is how the LG and LG surround
sound is meant to work together ?CougarSubscriber
Ah, you never mentioned anything about HDMI.
Assuming everything supports it, you want:
DVD > HDMI > Amp > HDMI > TV
Sky > HDMI > Amp > HDMI > TV
… and throw the SCART cable in the bin.
The gotcha here is that Sky does not output 5.1 surround over HDMI (because they are INSANE), you have to use an optical cable to carry the sound.Posted 6 years ago
