Can't figure out how to get s-video conections to work
I have Directv and have a problem with rolling picture on my tv. the rolling stops when the reciever is connected directly to the tv with coax but I have to go through the vcr. So I tried to connect the tv to the reciever with av cables just got sound ond no picture. Tried to use S-video connection to do it but I can't get anything. Is there a special channel for s-video. any other sugesstions would be helpful.

Check the video input on the TV. Make sure the video out from the DTV receiver is secure, and the TV input is as well. Make sure your TV in set to the right video input, and if all else fails, try a new wire for the video feed between the TV and DTV receiver. If possible, if you have another DTV receiver in your home, move the second receiver to where the first doesn't work (including the wires for video). It is possible that the receiver has a problem and DirecTV is full of BS. Be careful, DirecTV and Comcast, etc., are notorious for passing the buck onto the consumer. Worst case if you only have the one receiver, go to BestBuy, get a second, check your TV with the new one, and then return it to BestBuy when you are done. Not nice, but they do sell these for DirecTv. If it is the receiver now you will know for sure and you can call them and lean into them about their lack of professionalism and service, and probably get some freebies thrown your way. Good luck and I hope this helps.
This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...
... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...
1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...
ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
Are you sure the roll isnt Vertical? as if it is then all you need to do is adjust the VERTICAL HOLD PRESET POT which should be located on the PCB somewhere, its very unusual for TV.S to roll horizontally as then the picture just goes out of sync. and you would not see a picture at all. When you find the pot turn it ( with a small screw driver) slowly until the rolling stops, if it does not stop then you have a faulty component in the vert. sync. circuitry.
The set has loose power conections to the tuner and judging by the model it might have other loose conections in the chassis,the loose conections need to be resoldered and might not be easy to find,try taping the side of the set to see if it reacts while is doing the problem.Be safe and call a technician unless you are familiar with tv service.
