Home Cinema Setup - Cisco VHD Box (No Optical)

Hello new here!
Really stuck though!

Currently have a 42" LG Plasma TV, got Scarts, Composite, HDMI's, Optical on it.

I also have the Virgin HD Box made by Cisco, not the V+ or TiVo one though. This had 1 Scart, optical port, hdmi.

I also have a Phillips Home Cinema Kit, with Audio In (phonos)on, 1 HDMI out, and a scart, along with more composite, this does not have Optical port on it.

Main problem I am having is I cannot get the sound from my VHD box to my home cinema kit. I have got the VHD connected to TV via a HDMI lead. I have tried messing round with scarts from the VHD to the home cinema as well, also from VHD to TV etc.

Is there a way to get the sound to home cinema? I have seen mentioned on forums that its possible, then on some forums people are saying using HDMI switched SCART off.

To be fair I had a really old surround sound system that did work over a scart with this VD box, even when the VHD was connected using hdmi. But this broke and I got rid of this and the cables that come with it!

Please help!

Please do not post the same request in multiple threads - duplicate thread closed.
The Dunning-Kruger effect - it explains so much....

If my post is in bold, it's a moderating decision - if not, it's not.
