Question about JVC TH-A85 System
Jvc tha55 connecting 5.1 dolby to tv without using dvd player tv make toshiba 42x3030db, what lead is needed?
What model do you have?
You should be able to plug the audio/video output from the satellite TV system into the audio/video input on the JVC system. Then set the JVC system to the appropriate input.
I need to know the exact model to know how or if this is even possible. Some JVC models don't let you input any additional devices. Others might not have the inputs that are necessary for surround.

SOURCE: I just bought a JVC
See below for the correct setup to get the best clarity sound possible.
From Set top box:
Note: You may need to turn off the speakers in the TV setup menu to acheive no sound from the TV. This will make for the ultimate experience.

i have a jvc th-c60 and only recently started using the system for surround on my tv.
in addition to the surround system, i have a conventional vcr/dvd player. i mention this because i have my cable line routed through the vcr/dvd player - all other connections (audio in/out, etc.) are directly from back of tv to surround unit console. assuming all connections are correct, set the jvc unit to show "VCR" on the unit display AND set your surround option to "All surround". The "all surround" may not the exact term, and not sure what your unit has the same notations, but you should be able to cycle through the surround options and determine when you have sound coming from all speakers. also, on my th-c60 unit, the unit display denotes which speakers are producing sound (or should be producing sound).
and, yes, the college football games sound awesome in surround mode.

I my self don't have that exact unit, but most are similar, and i have looked up the specifications which are:
1 x S-video input
1 x Composite Video Inputs
1 x Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input
1 x Stereo Audio Input
document.write(neg_specification_newline('1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output')1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output
INPUTS (coming from devices to the system):
1) The unit already comes with a DVD player, correct? If so you don't need to connect it. If you do, connect your DVD play via an s-video input, since a normal DVD player doesn't need a higher quality/resolution input.
2) Connect your cable box to the home theater system via a composite cable (the one with Red green blue), if it has composite outputs ofcourse. If not, do it visa versa with the DVD, if your dvd has composite. So make the dvd via composite and cable box via s-video.
3) Audio from the dvd, this would be via Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input or stereo audio input. the digial audio will give you true 5.1 surround sound, and the stereo will only give you left and right channels, like you would hear from anything else (like a normal cd, radio, etc).
4) audio from cable box, would be again depending what you want. If you cable provider gives you alot of programming that has 5.1 surround sound (mostly HD channels), you would be better off with the digital audio. But if you watch more via your DVD, then connect the cable box via the stereo input. Again, this is to your preference, and which one you want true 5.1 surround sound from. The system should be able to 'emulate' 5.1 surround sound via the stereo cable too, but if your watching a movie, it can't really tell if a sound is supposed to come from the left rear or the left front.
5)connect to tv via HDMI if available, or S-video.
HDMI is much higher resolution (HD quality) S-video is normal cable programing or 'dvd quality'.
And the Tv would be left on mute or volume=0 since no audio is connected to the tv! All the audio should now come from your system.
Sorry if this was too vauge, but I don't have the same system and dont know exactly what/where all the connections are. If you have any other questions let me know.

you will need to connenct audio cables red and white from audio out on tv or from programming source(cable box sat box) to the audio in on back of jvc unit. then set unit to appropiate source (where you connect cables on back of unit it will be labaled and remote will have button to get to that connection labeled the same) if you want to get digital sound you will need and digital coaxial or fiber optical cable from source(cable box or sat box) and then set unit to video 1 for coaxial and video 2 for optical

SOURCE: jvc no sound when i have tv on
If your using a cable box or dss or fios, use whatever "input" your system has. preferably optical, or digital coaxial. all cable boxes dss and fios receivers have both optical and digital coaxial outputs as well as standard rca.
If your not using a cable box and are direct from the TV to the stereo, then it depends what the TV has. Most TV's have at least a "monitor out" that's analog rca. If you've got an LCD, Plasma, or digital TV, chances are you have an optical out. All that you really need to make sure of is whatever input you use on the JVC, when you want to listen to TV, it's got to be set on that input from the front. ie DVD/DTV/Vid 1/ Vid2/etc showing on the JVC display. That's the input on the back you must use to hear it. If you have any more questions, just post a comment and I can help some more. Hope this helps
