I have an LG 42 LE5510 LED TV which I bought two years ago. At the time of purchase I was assured it was the business.
I have been using it with just a Sky decoder since I bought it but I recently moved house and now have room to set up my Bose home theatre - This is where the problems started.
The issue is that the TV does not have an RCA audio out, or any audio out from what I can tell - other than optical.
What I wanted to do (and did on my last TV) was use the TV as the hub ie have all my inputs going directly to the TV's inputs, then use one of the TV's audio outs to send all audio to my Bose.
My Bose Lifestyle system is about 10 years old, so of course does not have HDMI. It only has RCA inputs. The TV has no RCA outputs, so I appear to be snookered.
Does anyone have any idea what I can do? I either need to find a way to get the audio from the TV to the Bose, or I need to go out and buy a new Bose - NOT a happy prospect at about $5k.
My other option is to purchase an LG blu ray home theatre to go with the TV but even then I don't know how I would get the audio from the TV to the stereo.
If I knew the TV had HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) then I could try an HDMI to RCA converter maybe. Do these even exist?? The TV manual doesn't mention HDMI ARC anywhere so I can't even rely on this solution working.
