Okay, first things first. I looked up the system, it appears it has Component video outputs on the back of the surround system (probably labeled as Y Pb Pr). Does your TV have those same inputs? If so, that is how you should have the video connected as it will give you the best picture quality (assuming no HDMI on the surround system). You would connect Y to Y, Pb to Pb, and Pr to Pr. (you can technically use either color matching component video cables for this, or just RCA cables as long as you have three connections and match input to output) LG's website is not terribly helpful telling me what kind of connections are available.

A scart? I had to look that up. I'm not sure I can help you, you must be from Europe?

The stereo RCA connection should work for you (you won't get surround sound, but you should get sound). What's the TV model? Or how did yo uconnect it on the TV side? Also, onn some TV's you have to go into the setup menu and tell it you have external speakers.
