Have connected Home theater using HDMI cable, however, although it has identified SKY HD I am unable to get it to play through Home Theater. For some reason it has identified SKY under AUX? and does not show HDMI at all??

Can you give me the model of the tv also, and of the sky box?How specifically is everything connected currently (which cords, which port on each device, etc)?

TV is LG 42lD450, Sky HD Both connected with HDMI Cable, However, unable to get sound through Home theater HTB 3520G.Although it has identified SKY it shows it as AUX instead of HDMI?? The Home Theater does not show HD as an option?
Your connection methods still are not clear, I was looking for the specific connections used to be detailed for each and every device.It sounds like you're trying to plug the sky box into the theater, and then theater to the tv. Instead, connect the sky box to the tv via hdmi, the same way you always have, (you can keep hdmi from lg to theater for dvd playback).Run a separate optical (fiber optic / toslink) cable: from the tv (digital audio out) back to the aux/digital input on the theater.
