JVC RX-8010V audio hook up question

I have a new tv and and HD dvd and am trying to hook it up to my receiver.

I have hooked to dvd to the TV via a hdmi cable and the TV to the receiver via a digital optical cable. When I watch TV and the signal is digital it says so on the receiver and the sound is great. When I watch a dvd the receiver says the sound is in pro logic when it should be dolby digital.

How do I get the dolby digital to come across when I watch dvds?

SOURCE: jvc rx-5020v dolby digital problem

Also...If your BluRay player only has a optical output for audio you will need to swap the inputs on the JVC rx-5020v. Press the "settings" button repeatedly until "digital in" appears on the display. Now use the "adjust" up and down buttons until DVD is selected as option 2. It will look like something like: 1CD2DVD Note: this may bugger any other previous setup you have.

SOURCE: I want surround sound. How do I hook up my audio

Does you television have an "Optical Audio Output"? This would be the best and easiest way to get surround sound from your system. If your TV has an optical output the you can use an Optical Cable to connect the TV to the reciver. This way whatever you are watching from the TV will be in surround sound. The HDMI connection sends a surround sound signal from each device to the television. If you connect it to this output on the TV then make sure the optical output is turned on in you telivison's menu. If your TV does not have an Optical Audio Output then you will need to connect each optical output from the blu-ray and HDbox to your reciever. Your reciever will need to have two Input channels(one for each device). Then you can select that input to the device(blu-ray or HDbox) that you are using. The optical cable is the best way to go for surround sound because it is pure digital and produces the best sound. If the HDbox or Blu-Ray does not have an optical output then you will need the six rca jacks to get the surround sound. Let me know further info on what you have so I can assist you more.

SOURCE: JVC receiver RX-6032 VSL is showing linear pcm,

Linear PCM is the way in which the sound is encoded in a CD, an uncompressed stereo format. It means that the audio setting is set on that system, not on Dolby Digital - what you would need to listen to 5.1 channels.
To get that back just press the INPUT DIGITAL button on the front panel repeatedly until the DOLBY DIGITAL label is displayed. If nothing happens when you do that or the signal isn't recognized as such then the defect is hardware - the audio decoder has failed and it will have to be replaced. This is a very big job that only a repair shop could do it - could, not surely can, because the replacement mainboard on which it's glued will be extremely hard to find, it's been out of production for a very long time now.

SOURCE: I am using a JVC

check the digital output setting of ur media player. it should be in the format raw not pcm. also check the audio format of ur movies in the media player. is it dolby digital ,dts or mp3. if u have down loded the videos it will be in mp3 format unless u have selected the dts downloads. if it is in mp3 or any other formate ur receiver will not support. if u press the surround button on ur remote u can select artificial surround effect for the mp3 audio.

I have a JVC RX-7010V AUDIO/VIDEO CONTROL RECEIVER. And I can not get it to hook up to my TV for surround sound I have to hook it up through my headphone jack on my TV.

On the back of the JVC receiver, there should be a TV input, Coax IN and OUT or AUX input (I don't remember if this model had HDMI). On the back of your TV, there should be an AUDIO OUT, connect this to either the TV or AUX inputs and make sure on your TV, to set the Audio Out is On in the TV menu. Turn on JVC and set input to TV and adjust volume. Another way is using the COAX input and outputs. Connect Output of cable box to Input of JVC, then connect Output of TV to Input on TV.

JVC RX-8030V, I have TV Audio hooked to back of receiver (TV Audio In) but I cannot get any sound from TV to Receiver, I can hear the speakers humm when I plug the cables in but then it goes away and no...

First of all, it is bad form and potentially dangerous to be changing cables with speaker power ON. Second, IS the unidentified TV passing audio out those jacks? Its own audio menu and controls may be between the sound and the jacks.

I hooked up a new lg hd tv via hdmi through my digital cable box. I am not receiving true surround sound, only dolby II. I have my box digitally hooked up to the receiver and the HDTV digitally hooked up...

It's possible that the TV broadcast isn't in true surround, and is only dolby encoded.
You can try going back to the component hookups, but I am not sure that will solve your issue.
