My JVC PIP Won't work, pls help!

Hi, I just bought a JVC Flat Screen AV-21ST27. I hooked up all the cables properly: Cable Tv, DVD, VCR are all working and viewable. The reason I bought this model was because of the Picture In Picture (PIP) feature, the problem is, when I turn on the PIP and click the channel changer for the PIP on the remote, both the main picture and subpicture change. So, both the main picture and subpicture are always on the same channel. When I use the channel changer for the main picture, both pictures also change.  However, when I switch the PIP to Video 1 and swap the main picture with the subpicture, the channel changer for the subpicture works. THE PIP CHANNEL CHANGER ON THE REMOTE ONLY WORKS WHEN THE MAIN PICTURE IS ON VIDEO 1 MODE. Please help! Is this a factory defect? Do I have to return the TV? Or did I do something wrong?

I was told that in order to view 2 different channels at the same time u have to subscribe to SKYCable and use the digital input instead of the antenna input and the antenna input you will have to use the regular antenna since there is only one tuner in the TV

How do I hook-up a dvd/vcr.

Hello dgrant13,
All you need to do is use a composite cable, or known as RCA cable (the red, white, and yellow cable). Both ends of the cable should have red, white and yellow. You just need to find the red, white, and yellow on the back of the dvd/vcr where it says audio/video out (AV out). Then match the colors and plug one end to the back of the dvd/vcr and the other then (matching the colors) to the Proscan tv where it says audio/video in (AV in). Good luck.

Trying to hookup old dvd/vcr to new flat screen. have cable box hooked up nad working. dvd/vcr no hdmi connections. what cable hookup do I use

You need to use composite inputs. They have three connections, yellow for video, white for left audio and red for right audio. It does not matter which input you go into. I would imagine there are about 7 separate inputs like the ones I described, just remember which one you use because you will have to set the input to that number to see the VCR/DVD later. Get a phono or RCA patch cable and connect the same colors from out on the vcr/dvd box to in on the tv. Turn everything on, set the tv to the proper input using the menu or input selection and you should be able to view video tapes or dvds. Let me know if you need more help.

Samsung 2333HD to dvd/vcr combo

Hi there,

On a DVD/VCR combo unit....the Component Output (RED, GREEN, BLUE) is exclusive to the DVD player section only (VCR can only output analogue source) and will only be able to view DVD.

To watch VCR, you will need to connect to your TV via Composite (YELLOW) cable, into the Yellow AV input on your TV. You can then tune the VCR section to match your TV's RF input (if you prefer this connection).

Good luck...

DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR

When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work

The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

NO sound and NO cable signals

Is your tv connected to your cable box through HDMI, AV, or component?

If its through HDMI then your cable carrier needs to load updated frimware in your box to communicate properly with your 2005 tv. The firmware loaded in your cable box needs to be "reverse compatible" for first generation HDMI from your 2005 tv. If your using AV or component hook-up and there's no sound then re-check all of your audio settings within the tv's menu. Also recheck the cable-wire your using and proper input/output ports.

ON your dvd player, is your tv connected through component, AV(rca) or HDMI?

If its through "component" then you need an extra audio cable to and from the DVD and tv.

Hook up vcr

Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.

Need help getting PIP to work

You don't have a problem except you need two tuners. You say you have a VCR, which this has a tuner. Set your VCR to TV and and start the PIP and choose your VCR as the second source. You will now be watching two different channels, one from the TV tuner and one from the VCR tuner. Also just to clarify, you should have the cable wire from the wall running to the INPUT on the VCR and then a cable running from the OUTPUT on the VCR to your TV to make this all work correctly.

Delay with channel surfing

Two things I would check before contacting JVC. In the on screen menu does it have a setting under tuner controls to disable AFC? It sounds like the tuner is seeking the proper channel frequency before it locks it in and displays a picture. If there is no such setting, then I would try a channel autoprogram in the cable mode. I'm assuming you have no cable or satellite TV box hooked up to the set. JVC is usually a pretty good brand name.
