There are a couple of different ways you can do this but this is the easiest.
Items needed - One set of RCA audio cables (Red/White)
1) On the back of your TV there should be RCA plugs marked as "Audio Out". Connect the RCA cable to these connections Red cable to Red connector and White cable to White connector.
2) Locate on the back of the surround sound system the connections marked "Audio in (VCR)". Connect the other end of the RCA cable to this connection Red cable to Red Connector and White cable to White connector.
Now to get the sound to play press the "VCR" button on the surround remote and you should get the cable box sound on the surround system.
FIRST- double check that the center channel is hooked up in the center channel connection. we have all made this mistake. second if you are watching a movie through a dvd or bluray player be sure that both your audio L/R rca's or hdmi cable's are plugged in. I do not know if your are on cable or satellite? Double check the connections. Be sure that the that if your can select your sound preference turn it to 5.1 surround or matrix. hope this helps
With no knowledge of your TV source component (cable box??) and how closely you have followed its connection instructions, no one can really help you out. I'm pretty sure you might need to run either an optical or coaxial (RCA) cable into your 'system' for it to decode 5.1.
When in doubt, Read the Manual.
Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.
Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.
I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)
See below for the correct setup to get the best clarity sound possible.
From Set top box:
Audio: optical or digital coax cable output --> jvc system Input
Video: hdmi output--> jvc system input
From JVC System:
Video: HDMI output---> TV HDMI input
only accepting HDMI input from JVC System.
This will provide you will sound from your jvc system at all times. Your JVC system is made to be used as a hub. So essentially what you are trying to do is connect all components into the JVC system. Then only connect the video portion to your TV. The TV itself should NOT be emitting sound.
Note: You may need to turn off the speakers in the TV setup menu to acheive no sound from the TV. This will make for the ultimate experience.
