1. What exactly do you mean by a home cinema system?
2. What LG model TV?

In general (your model may be different which is why we need your model number) flat panel TV's will have audio/video input via HDMI, Composite and Component cables. It should have an audio output called S/PDIFor Optical Out. Here is an example of what one looks like.

Many newer ones will also have the ability to use a HDMI cable to output audio as well, called HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC). In theory you can use this to output to a speaker system/receiver but in practice I've found they have to be the same brand to work (Samsung TV with Samsung speakers would work, but a Pioneer TV with Samsung speakers would not work).

However without knowing what your cinema system is or your TV model is, its very hard to tell you how to get everything to work.
