The JVC system is designed to output audio only via the speaker terminals at the rear of the system. There is NO provision to send audio directly to the TV from the system.

Page 14 of the manual (link provided below - free to download) details the connections available to a TV. These connections are limited to three types of connections: 1) "Video" for standard TVs which is "good" 2) "S-Video" for TVs that have an S-Video input jack which is "better" (both #1 and #2 are considered "composite" types).

The third type is called "Component" which is used for TV's that are capable of "progressive scan" video input which is "best" for the system. Notice that the jacks on the DVD player are labeled "Y", "Pb" and "Pr", not "Video", "Left" and "Right". This type video signal requires the use of three cables - they do not send audio as you may be used to see on all but the newer TVs. TVs capable of displaying "progressive scan" video have a better looking picture when using these jacks. Incorrectly connecting the video from the DVD to the TV audio inputs (Left & Right) will likely result in noise or hiss from the TV speaker.

To recap - audio can only be played through the JVC system's speakers. Use the highest quality video jacks that BOTH your TV and the DVD player supports.

I hope this was Very Helpful and enjoy your DVD and TV!

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

How do I hook up the DVD/VCR to cable box and Vizio HDTV?


both should be hooked directly to tv

VCR side of combo should be hooked up with composite video(yellow, red, white wires) to video 1 input

DVD side of combo should be hooked up component video (red, blue, green wires and red white for sound)

cable box should be hooked up HDMI or component to TV if HD or composite video if SD

hope this helps

CAN I PLAY THE DVD PLAYER WITH SOUND THROUGH MY TV WITHOUT HAVING THE SPEAKERS CONNECTED?


You can set up your tv in this way. Hook up your dvd player directly to your tv and then hook up your surround sound reciever from the audio out jacks from the back of your tv. This should allow you to use either your tv volume or the surround sound feature. Hope this helps

Hdmi not working


You need to set up the out put of your DVD player. First hook up a non hdmi output to the tv, either component or coax. You don't need to hook up the audio. You should get a picture from this connection. Then you can go into the menu and set your hdmi output to match your tv, probably 1080i. You may have to turn your volume up higher when using the hdmi cable than not. I hooked my audio up directly to a surround sound and don't use the tv's speakers.
