Since the DVD player is already connected to the TV, your best way would be to get a fiber optic cable and connect that from the DVD player to the stereo. This way you would hear the DVD player thru the stereo, if that is what you are wanting to do. After making that connection, be sure to set your Kenwood stereo to the proper function and "Auto Detect" for the digital signal. You would not be able to listen to regular TV this way, but you would be able to listen to the DVD player like this. The only way to listen to the TV thru the stereo is if you connect an audio RCA cable from the TV audio output (if your TV has one) or from your cable box RCA audio output to an input on the Kenwood stereo. You may have one just for TV. On the back of the Kenwood, you will see a row of red and white RCA jacks that are labeled as audio inputs. You can use any of those for the audio outputs of the TV or the cable, or satellite or whatever type of signal you are using. You have not listed much information to go by, so I have just given you the most likely types. If you need more information from me, please give me more information to work with. I can not see your set up from across the internet, I can only guess when that information is left out.

You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.

CAN I PLAY THE DVD PLAYER WITH SOUND THROUGH MY TV WITHOUT HAVING THE SPEAKERS CONNECTED?


You can set up your tv in this way. Hook up your dvd player directly to your tv and then hook up your surround sound reciever from the audio out jacks from the back of your tv. This should allow you to use either your tv volume or the surround sound feature. Hope this helps

Audio Issue


You may have tried this, but when you hook up audio out from TV to audio in on reciever, did you try the different input options for the reciever. Often times, audio in is an aux1 or aux2 setting on the receiver. If it is working with the DVD player, it is functional, you just have to get the wires hooked up and get the reciever on the correct setting. Also, even if you have TV audio out correctly configured to audio in AND on the correct input setting, the TV volume will have to be UP as well as the receiver volume. NOT ALL THE WAY UP (you'll blow your speakers), but up about 25% for you to hear it.

I can't get the JVC system hooked up with my DirecTV Satellite system where I can use it with my TV and VCR/DVD I tried everything in the manuel please help thank you


You need to plug all the audio "out" of the individual units to the audio "in" on the theater system and change the function/unit switch to the unit you want to listen to. If hooked up this way the theateer system has to be on to get any sound no sound will come from the tv. The easiest way is connect everything to the tv, and if the tv has an audio output jack, plug that into one of the inputs on the theater system. Connected this way anything that comes out of the tv goes into the theater system and you can still get sound from the tv at all times.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

How do i hook this to tv or digital cable to get surround sound?


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.
