I have a Beosystem 3 with DVI outs. I am trying to get the sound from my LG OLED screen through the Beosystem.  I've searched the forum and can find a few older posts saying people have done this,  but none actually explain how.

I have a Toslink to SPDIF converter and I have connected it to the TV and set Optical/HDMI ARC out. I have set the Beosystem 3 to AV2 sound input SPDIF. 

I cannot get any sound.

Can anyone help with what I need to do. What connections I need to make.

Thanks in advance

Try changing the type of sound your tv outputs. (PCM/Passthrough/Auto)

This is how I set the TV (55C9) and it works fine with an optical to coax converter. Optical only and Auto Digital Sound Out.

Hope this helps!

how do you remote the LG via the Beosystem?

With PUC and how is the technical way to do this?

What about remote turn on and off the LG and switching through TV, Netflix,

Apple TV 4 etc.?

I have an Beosystem 4.

To control the LG I used a Beo5 remote control. It took a lot of tinkering and worked well. But, I far prefer the Beo 4 so I have bought a LinTronic. I asked my local dealer if they can put LG TV codes into the  Beosystem 3 and they said it is not possible.

Thanks Johan. My. Sound menus looks slightly different but I'll give it a go tonight. Do you also have an HDMI cable connected. I only have the DVI to HDMI connected.

Hi Stoobie, my BeoSystem3 has HDMI outputs, but I am confident that that is not the problem. I also have connected the digital coax (from the toslink to sp-dif) to AV2. Let me send you a photograph of that setting also (in Dutch though).

Thanks for all the suggestions but none worked. My sound menus on the TV are slightly different but none of the options seem to work. I think I might have to check my convertor box as that may not be working! I can see red light down the Toslink cable so assume the TV out is working. 

What I plan to do is disconnect everything on the weekend, reset the Beosystem and start from scratch.

That's a pity Stoobie. Maybe a faulty converter indeed. Mine is this one:

There is no indicator light even, so I was crossing fingers too when I set it up lately! I powered it with a USB cable and I did buy a specific coax sp/dif cable as I assumed a normal rca/cinch cable would not work.

Hope you will get it working soon!

I hope this is not true! I was planning to try and do this sometime with my BS3!

Johan,

You may find a dealer that will do that for you but my local dealer emailed me to say it is not possible. I cannot understand why it is not possible. The discrete codes for LG OLEDTVs are vailble oline. I downloaded ON & OFF and put it on my Beo5 so they must be able to do it. I think you need to find a dealer who knows how to use the PUC tool properly.
