Trying to connect old Sony surround sound system to new LG Smart TV.

Oct 29, 2018
Hi there. I have an old Sony surround sound system/DVD player. The model is DAV-DZ230. The connections on the back of this amplifier are HDMI (for DVD only) and SCART.

I've just replaced an old LG plasma screen with a new LGUJ63. The old TV had a SCART connection, so connecting the amplifier to it and having surround sound through DTV was simple (just using SCART-SCART).

Although, this newer LGUJ63 doesn't have a SCART input, only HDMI and component.

I've tried using a SCART to composite but I can't get any audio whatsoever. I've tried changing the sound output settings on the LG with no luck. When I connect the component cable to the TV it acknowledges it by showing "AV x3" on the screen.

When I first set the TV up I set it up using cable, not a set top box or satellite.

If I change the Sony amplifier to Tuner FM/AM, then that audio will play through the surround sound no problem.

I'm thinking there is an easy fix here that I'm missing?

Thanks folks, hopefully this is clear and detailed enough to get a possible solution.
