First of all HOME THEATER DOES NOT use SOFTWARE. Can you please explain to me what you mean by lost functions or lost settings? Do you have a special type of Cable or Satellite Program that requires updates? I can not think of a reason for a Basic Home Theater System to need a Software Program. Please try to explain this to me in detail, so I can provide you with the SOLUTION. Thank you

What you need to do is called firmware upgrade.

You need first to download a disk image file (ISO type file)
Then you burn the ISO image on CD using a software like Nero.
Then you start the unit with image CD inside and the firmware will be automatically installed.

The ISO file can be downloaded from Targa website here, by entering your model number.

If you have problem in locating the firmware download, write them an Email to receive the right download.

ensure you download the right firmware for your model, downloading wrong firmware may damage the unit.

You can contact manufacturer here: dvd/vcr   targa  model:dvh-5100x - 1451.gif go to form

Once you locate the firmware download iso file, and when download is complete, use a computer with CD burner to write the image TV.
If you do not have any ISO burning software you can download Free iso software by FreeISO

After that start the system with the CD inside. That will install firmware and fix the system.

    Hi Alex.

    The ISO file is a complete cd pre-packed image, so to burn a CD from ISO file all you need to do is opening ISO file with an ISO burner software, and then chosing burn CD or record CD, depending on the software you use.

    If you do not have an ISO burning software install one of the following:

    ISO Image Burner 1.1

    Your Free DVD Burner 2.0

    Free Easy CD DVD Burner 1.3

    Once the ISO burner software is installed, start the ISO software program, go to open file on the software menu, locate the downloaded file Firmware_xxx.ISO, open it , put a blank CD in CDRW, and chose burn. The CD will be ready to use after burning.

Need to hook up LG tv to phillips cd/4 head hi fi and RCA surround sound

Ok: I will guide yourself through "hook up" process.
1. connect your TV set to your VCR, using 3 wires RCA cable(Yellow, red, white) to "Video1" input, yellow only! The other 2(sound channels) connect to "home theater/DVD unit. Use "aux" input.
2. Connect your DVD video output. yellow or 3 colored( green, blue, red) component cables to your TV's Video 2 or "component 1" input.
Now you'll be able to use your TV as a video monitor for your VCR and DVD.
The sound will be handled by DVD/Home theater. In case your TV is a very modern, all you can get out is: direct digital sound stream. Your home theater must be equipped with coaxial(orange) input(looks like RCA plug) or optical input. Or both. You must use proper cables to connect TV to Home theater.
sorry, but it requires some patience and thorough reading of user manuals.
Otherwise, it's "level 1" difficulty. nothing you may damage, due to installation.
Good luck,
Feel free to ask for more help, if needed.

I can't get the JVC system hooked up with my DirecTV Satellite system where I can use it with my TV and VCR/DVD I tried everything in the manuel please help thank you

You need to plug all the audio "out" of the individual units to the audio "in" on the theater system and change the function/unit switch to the unit you want to listen to. If hooked up this way the theateer system has to be on to get any sound no sound will come from the tv. The easiest way is connect everything to the tv, and if the tv has an audio output jack, plug that into one of the inputs on the theater system. Connected this way anything that comes out of the tv goes into the theater system and you can still get sound from the tv at all times.

Converter box

3/23/09 --- I don't understand why you would hook your converter box or antenna to your DVD Player. Converter box is only functional between an antenna and a vcr (and/or a TV). DVD Player hooks directly to TV (NOT thru a vcr, coding on dvd discs will screww up the signal and make it fade!) Good luck.

Adding vcr & rec to a '93

Please hook up VCR with TV through RF cable and check picture of VCR playback in TV.

Now you can hook DVD player video-audio out in VCR input and can have dvd playback picture in TV via VCR modulator.

If you want to listen sound via receiver then hook audio red-white cable between VCR audio out and receiver audio in terminals.

Let me know exact model numbers of units to help you out more.
Thank you.

Watching T.V. with speakers

Component 1 on the TV is probably an input, not an audio output. You need to find out if your TV has audio output jacks.
If I'm mistaken, and you are using audio output jacks from the TV, then you just need to press FUNCTION on your remote until the LCD display says "TV/VCR".
