Hi guys, I am planning to buy Apple TV2 and I was wondering is there setup guide for connecting to HDTV and home theatre system. I currently have LG HDTV and LG DVD Blu-ray Home Theatre. They are connected with HDMI 1.3 cable and I had to get optical cable to get sound from TV to Home theatre.

How is Apple TV fits into that? I have 1 HDMI slot free on TV and 2 HDMI inputs on DVD system.

I was thinking just to connect Apple TV to DVD via HDMI? Would that put sound on home theatre system?

Thank you in advance.

    You have read home theatre manual about playing sound from external device.

    You doesn't need to connect home theatre to tv at all as you have get video from apple tv.

    Connect video output from apple tv to tv(may carry sound along) and optical cable from apple tv to home theatre.

    That will do. You can mute sound of tv(in case hdmi carry sound along) or using other function(on samsung ) and hear from home theatre sound from speakers.
