LG SMART TV - CONNECTING TO HOME THEATER SYSTEM[Narrator]
These days Smart TVs are the hub of your home entertainment universe.
Where you use to send audio and video from a component like a Blu-ray player into the TV, you now need to send the audio from streaming movies and videos out of the TV to your home theater system for a truly impressive sound experience.
You have 2 easy options. If your TV and your audio device both support Audio Return Channel, you want to insert a high speed HDMI cable into the first HDMI port on the back of your LG TV.
And the other end into an ARC HDMI port on your sound unit.
If your components do not support ARC, then count on optical audio cable to transmit great sound from your TV.
In this case you connect the cable to your TV's optical digital audio out port which might be protected by a small spring-loaded door or a removable plastic plug.
Next, look for an available digital optical input on the back of your sound device.
Optical audio sends the sound signal as a series of light pulses so do your best to not bend the cable or it won't work properly. Whichever connecting method you select you'll need to update your TV sound setting. From settings navigate to sound, and over to the Sound Out bar.
Press Enter, scroll down to External Speaker, and press Enter. With this step you're also turning off your TV's internal speaker since you won't be using it.
Select Close, and you're done.
Whether you're employing ARC or optical audio cable, you want to make sure that your receiver or home theater system is switched to the correct audio input in order to receive your TV's audio signal.
Check the manual for specific details. And remember volume will now be adjusted by the remote for the external device or by a knob if there is one.
Terrific! You now have an audio setup that's as impressive as your new TV.
