I'm not sure what I did but I can't get the audio for my tv (big screen tv)to work. I played around with the Zenith system and I can finally get the radio(FM station) to play on the zenith system but I can't get the audio for the TV (and the channel which is on)to play. Could somebody help me out please? P.S. I do not have a cable box now.

Re: no audio for tv?
Since not all devices have the same in/outputs available, if you are trying to interconnect them, it helps to know the make and model of both, not just one.
There are several possibilities to connect external devices to your 'home theatre' system.
The one we have delivers the best when S-video is used but that requires a separate path for sound.
The standard colors for audio in and outputs are red(=right) and white(= left) and often cables are supplied with the same color coding.
The usual connections will be named 'Line in' and 'Line out.' The outputs deliver specified voltage into a specified load (or termination) and the inputs expect that condition.
This ensures that volume controls act in a sensible manner.

I have the same A/V receiver and in my setup there is an audio output (red and white able) coming from DVD player directly into Zenith Z763B. The video from DVD Player goes to TV input (yellow cable).
There might be alternatives to the setup mentioned above but I like to watch movie in a surround sound, rather than output from TV.
It could be that the video heads are just clogged.
Get a known good video tape and put it in the unit and let it just play and play and play. Quality video tapes have head cleaning substances built into the tape. If this does not work, get a Scotch Black Watch tape head cleaner. If that does not work the the heads are bad or some other problem.
only the hd channels get great surround sound. if your tv has an optical audio out and your surround has the optical in input. then i suggest buying a fiber optic wire for the audio you'll hear a big differance. just hope that the audio stays in sync unlike my cheap *** koss system
Sorry to say, Circuit City is right. These cheap home theatre in a box solutions are very very shady. They put the DVD player, preamp, and reciever all in one little box. Not very handy to adding options or plugs but very very cheap to produce. Ever notice why large home treaters have about 5 big black boxes and a DVD player? This little box is trying to be all of them.
If this was a reciever combo(as zenith wants you to think) then you could do EVERYTHING you were thinking would just make sense. Unfortunately, you trusted Zenith instead of Circuit City(gah i hate saying that). At any rate, if you still have receipt, return it!!!!
I will help you pick a system to suite your needs. I do all the things you want on a system i got for 500 bucks.
