How to Hook a JVC Surround System Up to a TV

JVC manufactures surround sound systems for home theater. With a balanced speaker package, audio/video receiver and DVD or Blu-Ray player, the system needs only a television to complete the home theater. Setup involves a single video cable with three color-coded plugs that connect to the television and the JVC surround sound receiver in a matter of seconds. Once connected, the JVC remote control can be programmed with a three-digit code to turn the television on and off. A list of remote control codes for various models of television is included with the JVC instruction manual.
