LG TV and external speakers


I have:


LG 47LN5400 TV (new, but not a "smart TV")

H25-100 DirecTV receiver

Logitech Z623 external speakers


When I connect the red/white audio from the speakers to the receiver, I get sound from both the TV and the speakers, but the remote will only adjust the volume on the TV.


When I previously had Time Warner Cable, an old "box" TV, and the same speaker system, the TWC remote could control the speaker volume, presumably through the cable box.


I read a recent post from someone who described the same problem with a different brand of TV and sound bar, and they later commented that they "figured it out" so I assume there is some way to make this work.


I called DirecTV tech support and they could not help and sounded skeptical that it had worked with TWC, because the speakers themselves cannot be controlled remotely. However, it DID work with TWC, and the only components were the ****** old TV, the cable box, and the speakers.
