JVC Surround Sound System

When we are watching a movie and the surround sound volume is above 45 and a climactic moment arises in the movie (music gets loud all of a sudden), the whole surround sound system shuts off. All you hear is a click and it's off. Then we have to turn it back on and the volume setting is set to the 30's (I've seen it as low as 32 and as high as 39). What could be causing this? The only power we lose is the surround sound system. It's like it's blowing a fuse or something and then resets when we turn it back on. Please help!! Thanks!

How can i hook up surround sound without an actual sound system?

You can draw up a chart to show where the speakers would go.
Use some imagination and go into detail .
When watching a movie on the virtual surround system , pretend to adjust the volume of each of the 5.1 ( or is your system a premium 7.1?) channels to suite your audio needs.

Use small cardboard boxes and draw speakers on them... some of Moms thread , or some old kite string will do for wires too!
Be carefull not to cross the wires (string) or you may cause a short in the system and blow out your nice new system!

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

How can i get the surround sound to work.

You need to get an HDMI cable going from your Cable Box to the Surround Sound system. If you are low on HDMI ports, you can RGB cables for Video.

Your quote: " I have a HDMI cable plugged into the TV and the Cable box." move that cable to Surround Sound and Cable Box, and use RGB cable or HDMI to go from Cable box to TV!

If your Surround Sound has no HDMI, use a Fibre Optic to go Cable to Surround. It will work Great!

Good Luck!

No sound when using dish or regular tv

This may be old news but just in case ...

Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)
