I have tried a cable splitter and then hook it up to my sterio but there is a sound delay.
If I buy a sound bar with HDMI will I be able to hear audio from the sound bar and the TV?
I am using the componert setup with a cable box.

Answer: 
For proper setup operation the Audio/Video signal should be sent to the television and then, while the devices are connected with the OPTICAL Digital Audio cable, turn the TV SPEAKER setting off in the the AUDIO menu. This should send your audio out to the audio system at the proper time. If you have additional questions about this matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Audio output for sampling

This TV does not appear to be compatible with standard digital to audio converters.
I need to use headphones; yet, I cannot use them with this TV because it only has optical audio output.
Tried using a digital to analog converter in between them, but the first I tried, only got me a loud strobo effect with this TV, while it worked fine with other digital outputs. Tell me what makes this TV not to work with it properly? I cannot find any audio output data for LG42LH30; would like to know: the bit rate, sampling rate (32, 44.1, 48, 96, 192 kHz...???), the code itself (AC3, PCM encoding, 2 Channel LPCM), etc...
Please, specify all the relevant data regarding the digital audio output that I need to know in order to find a converter that works with this TV?
Thank you!

Answer: 
The OPTICAL Digital Audio Output port has not been designed for operation with a digital to analog converter, nor has it been designed for use with headphones. This Audio Output jack is designed for use with a digital audio system, such as a Home Theater Unit. The manual specifies to use this port “if you want to enjoy digital broadcasting through 5.1-channel speakers”. Beyond this, the output jack is supposed to transmit the audio signal in the format in which it has been recorded.

Think there’s no such thing as an affordable 1080p TV with great features and technology? You’ll think again when you take a look at the LH30. It delivers a stunning picture in Full HD 1080p and comes with LG’s innovative Core Technologies with an enhanced audio and video experience. With the LH30, affordability doesn’t mean compromise. It means getting a great HDTV—period. See for yourself.
