Question about JVC LT-42X579 42 in. LCD TV
I have a new JVC LCD, a JVC TH-F3 theater system and cable TV. I need to use the cable remote to change the channel and the TV remote to change volume.
Also can regular cable sound come out of the home theater. It has a receiver and dvd player
> I need to use the cable remote to change the channel and the TV remote to change volume.
That is because your TV is looking at the output of the cable box (probably on channel 3 or 4) so the TV has to be statically tuned to see the cable box's output.
On the second question; I, and perhaps others, can't answer this without spending a lot of time to download manuals for both systems while you have them (presumably, since they are new) on hand. You didn't include the TV's model number anyhow so even that wouldn't be adequate.
The home theatre may have a receiver but what does it receive? Unless it also has channel capabilities that correspond to cable channels, it can't. The typical routing should be from the cable box to the TV S-video input and the sound can be routed separately from the cable box to either/or both, the home theatre's and also the TV's audio inputs.
When I am installing new stuff, I make a sketch of the routing I want (or have) to use. To me, this is less confusing than the supplied instructions.
