You need to connect the audio out from your TV to the surround sound system. You need to determine what kind of audio output you have on the TV (analog, coax digital or optical digital) and the type of audio input on the surround sound. If they do not match you will need to buy an adapter (this can be a digital to analog converter or a converter to change optical to coax digital or vice versa).
