For some reason this Panasonic unit does not offer surround sound in TV or VCR mode.  I guess their engineers decided it wasnt an important feature!!

SOURCE: tv surround

It depends on what you currently have as equipment.

You'll have to have something that outputs in digital audio (coaxial or optical). Either your reciever (Cable/Satellite) or the TV. You'll just hook that up to the Surround Sound unit and then just turn on the Surround System when you want surround sound.

You'll have to connect the TV as you would normally with audio cables sicne you'll want stereo sound on the regualr channels.

The audio keeps going in and out and cuts off. Also I have other devices going into aux in but it doesn't show 5.1 surround it only shows the front L, Front R, and CT speakers in stereo. I want everything...

If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.

Try replacing the main board

NO sound and cable signals

Looks like someone sold you a unit only partially working.

You may need to have the main board replaced, which is likely why the previous owner sold it.

My solution would be: Buy an inexpensive surround system and a VCR, Use the VCR as your tuner, and plug the audio output from the VCR into your surround system.

This way you will have a tuner (the VCR), and sound through the surround amplifier. You can also plug the audio output from your DVD player direct into the surround amplifier. This solution would likely run you less than half the cost of replacing the main board in the TV.

I want to connect my sound system to my tv

Your television is either going to need Video Out, or if you have a VCR or VCR/DVD combo connected to your television. Assuming that you have a VCR combo, the way your tv should be set up is on the back of the vcr combo, your cable will run into the coaxial IN and then you have another cable running from Coaxial OUT to your tv. If you have it set up like this, then the DVD / VCR combo will have RCA Audio / video out ports on the back side. Run RCA cables from the DVD / VCR output to the surround sound INPUT. If you already have your inputs in use on the surround sound, Radioshack has RCA splitters for about $1.50 each, you might need to pick some of them up so you dont have to go through the trouble of reaching behind it all the time to disconnect and reconnect whatever your trying to connect. Now if you dont have the DVD / VCR combo, then your TV "MUST" have RCA Outputs. if it doesnt, then the only way that your going to have your surround sound connected to your tv is to take the TV apart and get a RCA "Line output converter" and wire it to the left / right channels of your tv. From what I've read, i think this is what your trying to do so I hope this helps

Cannot TV to play throught JVC TH-C50

Dec 24, 2007 | JVC TH-C50 System

This is possible a number of ways. Depending on the type of TV you have, it may have audio out on the back of the TV. This will be two jacks that are RED and WHITE, and it should be labeled "TV OUT" or "OUT". Use an RCA audio cable and connect these two jacks to the TV jacks of the same colors on your surround sound unit. If your TV does NOT have audio out jacks, you can still accomplish this by use of a VCR. Just run your main TV input [coaxial cable from antenna or cable/dish] into the VCR, and then out to your TV as normal. Leave your TV on channel 3 [or 4, or whichever channel the VCR uses]. If you're using a regular antenna, you can switch channels on the VCR. If you're using cable, you should be able to just change channels on the cable box. This will give you surround sound from an older TV without audio outs. But most larger and newer TVs have an audio out jack on the back. Hope this helps!
