new tivo box has no sound output sockets

Just got a new box, replacing my old V+ HD box.  However.......  My LG tv is an older model, HD ready but without any HDMI input sockets.  With the V+ box, I could view in HD by connecting the HDMI output from the V+ box through the DVI socket on the TV, sound being provided via the white and red audio output sockets on the V+ box to the audio input jack plug on the TV.

The new Tivo box has no conventional audio output sockets, and the DVI connection does not support sound.  To get sound I have to connect the SCART cable, but then I have no HD.

Anyone got a solution?  There's no reason to dump a perfectly satisfactory tv.

You can get an adaptor that will plug into the scart socket like this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/SCART-Adapter-PHONO-S-VHS-OUT/dp/B000JJ5FLG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=14678948...

This will output sound and you can still use HDMI for the picture.

I have been using exactly this setup since the TiVo was introduced and it works perfectly.

Hoping there is going to be a similar sort of option on the 4K box (but not holding my breath!)
