Re: How do I get the sound from tv to play through when...

If you don't have audio RCA output jacks on your TV then you will either have to open up your TV and add a "ground isolator" type device to the speakers and create an RCA output or else you could use a VCR tuned to the same channel as your TV and use it's RCA audio outputs to go to your stereo. If you don't know what you are doing, I wouldn't recomend you open up your TV and start changing anything though. Good Luck.

How to get sound to tv from JVC TH-M606 without sub woofer.Also trying to put in progressive mode without remote

  • If I understand your question correctly you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,JVC TH-M606 ** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
JVC TH-M606 RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
JVC TH-M606 Receiver..By this means whatever you watch on the TV (tuner, satellite , Xbox ) ,it's sound will come thru your stereo..

  • If you want to listen your receiver thru your TV, sorry but it is not a preferable attempt since TV sound system is not a HI-FI quality compare to your nice Receiver..if you really want to do it,try to do the connections given above in reverse..
  • And,best of my knowledge I am afraid you can not put in progressive mode without remote

  • Hope this helps!

Can I get surround sound while watching TV programs with this system abd if so how do I connect to TV

Yes, IF your cable or satellite box has an optical digital audio out connector...

Page 10: "Connecting a digital component"


When playing a video component such as a DBS tuner or cable box;

• To listen to the sound, select "AUX DIGITAL" as the source to play.

(See page 14.)

• To see the picture, connect the video output jack of the component to

the video input jack of the TV directly, and select the correct input
mode on the TV.

Cannot get home theatre to work with panasonic flat screen. Surround sound was working with old tv got a new one but now its not working. Do i need a different cable

your new tv probalby has an hdmi output. depeding on how old your jvc system is, iit may or may not have an hdmi input. not to worry, there should be some type of compatible output on the tv to send audio signal to the jvc. first look at the back of the jvc and see whats there. then look at the tv and you should see compatible output on tv and run proper cable to input on jvc. some auxillary audio outputs on the tv are driven by the volume of the tv itself, so make sure to turn the volume on the tv up a llittle to make sure its sending signal. you may have to go into the tv menu and turn the internal tv speakers off so you dont hear them and the jvc. its not a big deal if your hearing both, it just wont be true surrond sound. if it were mine, id turn the tv speakers off.

My system doesn't work when i'm watching t.v.? It only works while playing dvd's..

"Doesn't work". Do you mean no TV audio at the TV? No TV audio from the receiver? No Video? Both?

MOST IMPORTANT: Is this a new setup or did the problem appear after working for awhile?

I'm going to guess it's a new installation with no audio while watching TV.

Generally, most TV watching originates with a cable box. There will probably be some sort of analog or digital audio output on the cable box. Connect it to the Aux In or Optical Digital In on the receiver as applicable. Select the appropriate input when watching TV.

The video from the cable box will depend on the box, too, but it appears this unit will only accept Composite or S-Video In. If your cable box has a higher quality connection (Component or HDMI), I'd run it directly to the TV for the best video but still use the digital audio feed to the JVC. Let the specialized parts of the chain deal with their specialties - audio or video.

Of course, if your TV has only one HDMI, you will have to choose which source uses it. HDTV would get my vote for it as it needs the best conenction for maximum enjoyment. If the TV has Component (3-wire) Video inputs, I'd use that from the receiver for DVD viewing. I have both myself and see no difference with DVD video between HDMI and component video.

If you lack the manual that speaks to all of this, go to, register and download it for free. It’s a combination JVC TH-C40 C50 and C60 manual.

Problem with surround sound on JVC Th-C5 sound system

Not sure how you're hooked up or what model TV you're using. If you mean the TV sound through RCA cables is the source and you're wondering why it's not surround. Well, it's not multichannel. Please fill in some details.

Surround sound hookup

Hook your satelite receiver to your TV. Then run from your TV audio out to your surround sound system. This should make your surround sound system work with anything your TV is playing.
