Hello All!

I have LG 42LH40 LCD television, and an older Zenith molder receiver/surround sound unit that is connected to my dvd player and also to my computer. I would like to connect to the tv to the receiver, but I'm not sure if it is possible.

The only sound output jack on my tv is labeled "Optical Digital Audio Out", and the only inputs into my receiver are the white/red RCA cables.

Does any converter exist, or any way I cannot hook these too up?

Here is one converter, but at $60 it may be a better idea to just buy a cheap surround sound system that includes an optical audio in.

I'd be careful here, since the wast majority of cheap surround systems does not have a digital audio input either. I'd buy an entry level AV receiver.

Is it even necessary?

And the reason i ask this is because even though you have a coaxial connected as I can see from your picture do you watch your TV through an HD cable box? If you do then simply connect outputs from the RCA jacks on the box to the receiver as the box is bound to have them also that is where the sound is coming from and you will get better clairty than running through the TV.

I'm assuming that is what your HDMI cable is for because you haven't mentioned having a blu-ray player.

If your cable is not connected to a box and goes directly to the TV then I can give you ways of making it work if you have a Stereo VCR lying around.
