I have a new JSI DVD Home Theater System and it requires only a RCA cable to the TV. I cannot get the DVD to play on the tv screen. I use to have a normal video cable going from my old dvd/vhs system and that just popped up on my tv when we turned it on. I have satellite on this tv which is programmed on Channel 3. I also had my old dvd/vhs programmed on channel 3 as well with no problem. I do not have the original remote for this TV, we use the satellite universal remote to program everything. I have gone in through the TV's menu and changed the DVD for video input, tried to change the channel to 3 and 4. Nothing works. It is like the TV does not know where to look for the video input. Unfortunately, this new DVD system does not have a cable connect like my last dvd/vhs system. I have also tried the s-video cable with no luck...even when I change to s-video on the TV's menu.
Any suggestions, I am now without the use of DVD and my children are frantic!! :(((((

Gotta find an audio output from the TV and run it to aux input on the home theatre, select the aux function and it should work, if your tv has no audio out see if it has a headphone jack you can use as an audio out, can get a cable with 3.5mm headphone jack one 1 end and rCA red/white on the other, becareful when doin this as the audio output level froma headphone jack maybe controlled by the tV's volume itself. keep tV volume low and use the home theatre volume if your doing it that way
run yellow cable from xbox to TV vide input for picture!, now run the red/white cables to AUX ibput on the RCA and push function till you see aux and poof, you got Video on the tV and audio from the surround sound.
Connect the RCA cables ( red, white, yellow cables) to the necessary jacks o the DVD player and tv..the DVD player should have an "AUX" input amongst the other inputs eg DVD,USB etc..this allows you to play sound from the TV through the DVD HT
You can use either the multi pin connector cable, or plug the white, yellow and red cables to the TV set at the DVD player input or "Video 1" and the the audio output of the TV Another red and white set of RCA cables into the audio input of the home theater. This way the TV can play through the home theater system when you are watching cable or over the air.
If you do not want to hear the TV audio, you should go to the audio properties and select "external speaker system" but if you do this the home theater system must be on to hear any audio from the set until you set it back to the TV speakers through the TV's setup menus again.
No they all are compatible with eachother no matter what brand tv,surrround sound. It is all in the hook up & without you stating how you have it hooked up,no way to tell because one siimple connection is all you r missing. You have it most way there if sound is ok on dvd.If you explain how you have it hooked up i can surley help you!!
Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.
2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.
all wrong! look at the back of your tv input panel you will see 2 rca jacks labelled audio out use rca cable (stereo) then connect to your audio receiver input labelled tv or any available input like cd vcr ....etc.let me know.
