    I have the THD5-50 system. I can go from the TV TOP Box HDMI OUT to JVC THD-50 HDMI IN. Can NOT go HDMI from JVC THD-50 Hub to TV HDMI IN. In fact I have to use one or the other options to go to the TV. Optical cable, componet cables(Monster Audio/Video Cables), or S-Video . The TV does not has a separate Digital video IN. I do have separate Audio In caability on the TV. Which combo is better?

Yes, that is correct. You can either use optical or digital for the audio to the jvc system. They give you 2 options but you can use either, they both work just as well.

We are trying to hook up our 65" Mitsubishi DLP TV to our JVC surround sound...basically we can get the DVD to work with surround sound but when we have the tv on our sound doesn't come out of our...


That cable doesn't exist. You can't just shoot electrons into one end of a copper cable and have light come out the other end.

My $.02...

Treat your TV like the primary user of the Hi-Def Video ONLY, not the source of any audio. Ask yourself, does it really NEED to be in an audio chain if it doesn't tune the station off the air?

Your JVC should be the primary destination of high-end audio, directly from, say, the Cable Box' while the Hi-Def video is sent to the TV.

Zigzagging good audio and video through the room to devices that don't need it is expensive and wasteful, plus it adds complexity and unnecessary connections that add nothing but could fail.

How do i hook up my tv to the sound system so i can hear regular tv through the speakers? I can hear it when i play a dvd but not regular tv shows.


The simplest way would be to run RCA cables from your Cable Box analog audio out (if THAT is where your TV programming comes from) to the available Audio In on the JVC. Page 9.

If the cable box has coaxial or optical digital audio OUT, run THAT (instead of the analog audio) to the correct Digital In connector. Page 8 and 9

This would free up the analog audio from the cable box to send directly to the TV's audio input for causal programming, like news, so you wouldn't need the JVC on.

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

I need a diagram of how to hook up my jvc 5.1 surround sound to my tv, dvd and cable box


I my self don't have that exact unit, but most are similar, and i have looked up the specifications which are:

Inputs:
1 x S-video input
1 x Composite Video Inputs
1 x Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input
1 x Stereo Audio Input

Outputs:


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.

Output:
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.

Just go into your sat box setup menu and under setup system option select audio and make sure to go to the dolby digital option and turn it on. This feature is turned off by default from the factory. You will always get 2 channel sound unless that is on. Also remember to go to a hd channel as they are broadcast in surround sound and non hd channels are broadcast in 2 channel.

Setting up Unit


I called the JVC tech service rep. I went from the Cable box to the JVC unit with a Digital Optical Cable, from dvd/vcr player to jvc unit with a Composite Cable and Audio Cables. From cable box to tv with hdmi cable and from jvc unit to tv with componet cables and cable box to dvd/vcr with Audio/ Video and S-Video cables. This allows me to have the cable TV access and Surround sound in all mode. I have HD and Digital surround sound in three diiferent modes. Everything is working great.
Thanks for the opportunity for help just the same.

Sincerely, cthomas249

I just bought a JVC THD50 surround sound system. I want to hook up the system to my television and cable so when I watch cable I can hear the surround sound. I bought a digital optical audio cable and...


See below for the correct setup to get the best clarity sound possible.

From Set top box:
  1. Audio: optical or digital coax cable output --> jvc system Input
  2. Video: hdmi output--> jvc system input
From JVC System:
  1. Video: HDMI output---> TV HDMI input
TV:
  1. only accepting HDMI input from JVC System.
This will provide you will sound from your jvc system at all times. Your JVC system is made to be used as a hub. So essentially what you are trying to do is connect all components into the JVC system. Then only connect the video portion to your TV. The TV itself should NOT be emitting sound.

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.

Setting Up Surround Sound with satellite tv digital tuner


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.
