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.

Getting tv sound from home theater speakers


Connect your sound from the cable box out to the JVC theater audio in jacks. This will give you sound through the speakers.

No sound from tv, dvd, cable. Speaker test does work. Sound stopped suddenly when channel was changed.


What does this mean: "when channel was changed"? TV channel?? Would that mean a remote command was issued? How about FM (no external cabling)?

I have a jvc seteup but reciever is broke.is there a way i can get a adapter to plug sub woofer with power amp into a a yamaha reciever?the plug that goes from sub woofer also powers other speakers, cable...


Here's a manual.

That cable not only carries audio but it also powers the sub and other channel amplifers. Even if we could supply the pin-outs for the channels I'm not sure what we could do to provide subwoofer power. We're talking about a major rework.

This is a highly proprietary design, meaning it's really not very adaptable to normal spec audio equipment.

There's a flat-fee repair service for the receiver ($99.95, free return shipping):

Maybe they could fix your receiver.

You COULD try to reach the manufacturer for other options.

My remote control for my polaroid tv wont change channels up and down.the channel button isnt working for the tv.everything else is working.


You may be able to program your cable box remote to control your TV in addition to your cable box. When they initially set up your cable box they probably left a pamphlet giving you instructions on how to program your remote. I'm not sure why you can't change the TV channels manually but this may give you a work-around.

JVC television-lost old remote-have universal /can't add channels


I don't have an answer for your question.

However, I do have a suggestion. You can hook up a vcr to your tv, then put the tv on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the vcr is set for) and change the channels through your vcr. You have to have the cable go first to your vcr and then out to the tv.
