The red and white plugs are audio - they should go to one of the receiver's inputs.

The yellow plug is composite video - if your receiver has a yellow jack, plug it into the receiver (this will let you switch inputs from the receiver), if not, plug it into your TV.

Same goes for your tape deck, though it won't have a video output.

Hook up new blueray thru old home theater system


Yes you can. If you have more than 1 HDMI sources and your old system only has 1 HDMI in, you may want to invest in an HDMI switch. They are inexpensive (under $20 on Amazon) and let you choose 4 HDMI sources to feed your system. The audio is embedded in HDMI and you may have to select the choices (surround versus stereo) when you play the disc.

There are a couple of different ways you can do this but this is the easiest.

Items needed - One set of RCA audio cables (Red/White)

1) On the back of your TV there should be RCA plugs marked as "Audio Out". Connect the RCA cable to these connections Red cable to Red connector and White cable to White connector.

2) Locate on the back of the surround sound system the connections marked "Audio in (VCR)". Connect the other end of the RCA cable to this connection Red cable to Red Connector and White cable to White connector.

Now to get the sound to play press the "VCR" button on the surround remote and you should get the cable box sound on the surround system.

Good Luck.....

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

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.

No sound coming from JVC Theater System when watching regular TV


  1. I am assuming that it has audio when using other inputs or tuner.
  2. Check that the TV inputs work by attaching a different input devise (cd player, Tape deck or vcr audio out) to the TV input.
  3. If you get audio the problem is with the TV audio out check that connection.
  4. Check the audio setting on the TV you may need to switch from internal speaker to external or from variable to fixed.
Good luck

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

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.
