Bad news. LG may not be passing 5.1

In reply to: TV sound to DVD receiver notes it.

Before you lose all your sanity, ask LG if your model passes 5.1. My bet it doesn't.

In parting, here's how to connect and get 5.1. A little nutty at first to some but this generic formula works for most gear.

1. Source -> Receiver -> HDTV
2. For HDTV sound that is sourced from antenna, HDTV optical -> Receiver.

There are folk that scream that they don't want that setup but they usually figure it out after a lot of lost days.

Try this recipe

In reply to: TV sound to DVD receiver

Obviously there will some workarounds since all equipment does not offer HDMI connections.

Try the following connections, which I believe should work. Keep in mind I am going on what you write and not by actual model number. Knowing all makes models eliminates possible confusion. In this sense there will be some "xxx OR yyy" below. Summary: the Video will be connected directly to the LCD, and the audio to the Jamo DVD receiver component.

Set Top box (RGB out) --> (RGB in) HDTV
"" " (S/PDIF out) *via either digital optical or digital coaxial cable --> (S/PDIF in) Jamo

Jamo (HDMI out) --> (HDMI in) LCD TV

We can clarify if you post all makes/models.
