You do not have to connect both the composite video and Svideo terminals. However, remember that the video signals
from the composite video input terminal are output only
through the composite video output terminals, while the
ones from the S-video input terminal are output only
through the S-video output terminal.
Therefore, if your DVD player is connected to the receiver
only through the S-video input terminal, you cannot record the
picture from the DVD player on the VCR.
In addition, if the TV and the DVD player are connected to the
receiver through the different video terminals, you cannot view
the playback picture from the DVD player on the TV.

Digital connections
Connecting the Power Cord
This receiver is equipped with two digital input terminals. You can
connect any component to the digital terminals using digital optical
cables (not supplied).
Before plugging the receiver into an AC outlet, make sure that all
connections have been made.
Plug the power cord into an AC outlet.
IMPORTANT:
• When connecting the DVD player or the DBS tuner using the digital
terminal, you also need to connect it to the video jack on the rear.
Without connecting it to the video jack, you can view no playback
picture.
• After connecting the components using the DIGITAL IN terminals,
set the following correctly if necessary.
– Select the digital input mode correctly. For details, see “Selecting
the Analog or Digital Input Mode” on page 13.
– Set the digital input (DIGITAL IN) terminal setting correctly. For
details, see “Digital Input (DIGITAL IN) Terminal Setting” on page
13.
Keep the power cord away from the
connecting cables and the antenna. The
power cord may cause noise or screen interference. We recommend
that you use a coaxial cable to connect the antenna, since it is wellshielded against interference.
Note:
The preset settings such as preset channel and sound adjustment
may be erased in a few days in the following cases:
– When you unplug the power cord.
– When a power failure occurs.
CAUTION:

Using the DSP Modes
The built-in Surround Processor provides three types of the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) mode — 3D-PHONIC mode,
DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) mode and Surround mode.
3D-PHONIC modes
DAP modes
The 3D-PHONIC mode gives you such a nearly surround effect as it
is reproduced through the Dolby Surround decoder, which is widely
used to reproduce sounds with a feeling of movement like those
experienced in movie theaters. The 3D-PHONIC mode is the result
of research on sound localization technology carried out at JVC for
many years. This mode can be used when the front speakers are
connected to this receiver (without respect to the rear/center
speaker connection).
• You can select either 3D ACTION or 3D THEATER to your
preference when playing an analog or Linear PCM (digital)
source.
• You can select either 3D DIGITAL or 3D THEATER to your
preference when playing a Dolby Digital source.
The sound heard in a concert hall or club consists of direct sound
and indirect sound — early reflections and reflections from behind.
Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any reflection. On
the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the distances of the
ceiling and walls. These direct sounds and indirect sounds are the
most important elements of the acoustic surround effects. The DAP
mode can create these important elements, and gives you a real
“being there” feeling. This mode can be used when the front
speakers are connected to this receiver (without respect to the
rear/center speaker connection).
You can select one of the following to your preference.
3D ACTION:
Best for action and war movies — where the
action is fast and explosive.
3D DIGITAL:
Reproduces multi-sound source encoded with
Dolby Digital.
DANCE CLUB: Gives a throbbing bass beat.
HALL:
Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a concert hall.
PAVILION:
Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a high
ceiling.
LIVE CLUB:
Gives the feeling of a live music club with a low
ceiling.
3D THEATER: Reproduces the sound field of a large theater. This
mode can be selected when only front speakers are
connected to this receiver and “REAR SPK” and
“CENTER SPK” is set to “NONE” (see page 14).
Note on the subwoofer sound when using the 3D-PHONIC
modes
Sounds will or will not come out of the subwoofer according to the
selected 3D-PHONIC mode.
• With “3D ACTION” selected: No sound comes out.
• With “3D DIGITAL” selected: Sound comes out if the subwoofer
channel signals come into this receiver ( LFE of the signal
indicators lights up — see page 10) while playing a multi-sound
source encoded with Dolby Digital.
• With “3D THEATER” selected:
– If “FRONT SPK” is set to “SMALL,” sound comes out while
playing any source.
– If “FRONT SPK” is set to “LARGE,” sound comes out only if
the subwoofer channel signals come into this receiver ( LFE of
the signal indicators lights up — see page 10) while playing a
multi-sound source encoded with Dolby Digital.

Notes:
With this receiver, you can use two types of the Surround mode.
Following modes cannot be used when only the front speakers
are connected to this receiver (without the rear speakers or
center speaker).
• The DSP modes have no effect on monaural sources.
• The DSP modes cannot be used for recording an analog source.
• The PRO LOGIC indicator lights up when the Dolby Pro Logic
decoder built in this receiver is activated.
• The Ÿ DIGITAL indicator lights up when the signals encoded with
Dolby Digital come into the receiver.
• The Dolby Pro Logic decoder is used not only for the analog
sources but also for the sources encoded with Dolby Digital in the
following cases:
– When only front channel signals are encoded.
– When front channel and monaural rear channel signals are
encoded.
Dolby Surround (Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic)*
Used to reproduce the soundtracks of software encoded with Dolby
Digital (bearing the mark D I G I T A L ) or with Dolby Surround
DOLBY SURROUND ).
(bearing the mark
Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic can be selected automatically
according to software played back and the speaker arrangement you
have done.
• To enjoy the software encoded with Dolby Digital, you must
connect the source component using the digital terminal on the
rear of this receiver. (See page 8.)
IMPORTANT:
Before recording a digital source, turn off the DSP mode.
JVC Theater Surround
In order to reproduce a more realistic sound field in your listening
room while playing soundtracks of software encoded with Dolby
Digital (bearing the mark
), with Dolby Surround (bearing
the mark
DOLBY SURROUND ), you can use JVC Theater Surround.
• When playing a source encoded with Dolby Digital (bearing the

The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate JVC audio components through the remote sensor on
the receiver.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC audio
components through the COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks (see
below) in addition to the connections using cables with RCA pin
plugs (see page 6).
• Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are
unplugged before connection. Plug the AC power cords only after
all connections are complete.
CD player
Automatic Power On/Off (Standby): only possible
with the COMPU LINK-3 connection
Both the CD player and cassette deck (or MD recorder) turn on and
off (standby) along with the receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck (or
MD recorder) will turn on automatically, depending on which
component has been previously selected.
When you turn off the receiver, both the CD player and cassette
deck (or MD recorder) will turn off (standby).
Synchronized Recording
Cassette deck
or
MD recorder
COMPU LINK – 3
(SYNCHRO)
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck (or MD recorder)
starts recording as soon as a CD or a record begins playing.
To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:
1. Put a tape in the cassette deck (or an MD in the
MD recorder), and a disc in the CD player (or a
record on the turntable).
2. Press the record (¶) button and the pause (8)
button on the cassette deck (or MD recorder) at
the same time.
Turntable
IMPORTANT:
When turning on these connected components for the first time, turn
on the connected components first, then turn on this receiver.
Notes:
• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO)
jacks, you can use either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jack, connect it so that it is the last item in the series
of components. (For example, the turntable or CD player in the
diagram above.)
• To operate the cassette deck or MD recorder using the COMPU
LINK remote control system, set the source name correctly. (See
page 12.)
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed
below.
This puts the cassette deck (or MD recorder) into recording
pause.
If you do not press the record (¶) button and pause (8) button at
the same time, the synchronized recording feature will not
operate.
3. Press the play (3) button on the CD player or on
the turntable.
The source changes on the receiver, and as soon as play starts,
the cassette deck (or MD recorder) starts recording. When the
play ends, the cassette deck (or MD recorder) enters recording
pause, and stops about 4 seconds later.
Notes:
• During synchronized recording, the selected source cannot be
changed.
• If the power of any component is shut off during synchronized
recording, the COMPU LINK remote control system may not
operate properly. In this case, you must start again from the
beginning.
Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the
Receiver
You can control the connected audio components through the remote
sensor on the receiver using this remote control. Aim the remote
control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver. For details, see
pages 41 and 42.
Automatic Source Selection

When you press the play (3
on its own remote control, the receiver automatically turns on and
changes the source to the component. On the other hand, if you
select a new source on the receiver or on the remote control, the
selected component begins playing immediately.
In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing
without sound for a few seconds.

TEXT COMPU LINK Remote Control System
The TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system has been newly developed to deal with the disc information recorded in
the CD Text* and MDs. Using these information in the discs, you can operate the CD player or MD recorder equipped
with the TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system through the receiver.
CONNECTIONS:
FUNCTIONS:
To use this remote control system, you need to connect the CD
player and/or MD recorder you want to operate, following the
procedures below.
1. If you have already plugged your CD player, MD
recorder, and this receiver into the AC outlets,
unplug their AC power cords first.
2. Connect your CD player, MD recorder, and this
receiver as follows, through the COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jacks and TEXT COMPU LINK
jacks.
1) COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks: Use the cables with
the monaural mini-plugs (not supplied with this receiver).
CD player
This remote control system allows you to use the functions listed
below.
Displaying the Disc Information on the TV screen
Disc information such as its performer and disc title (and track titles
only when a CD Text is selected) is shown on the TV screen.
Disc Search: Only for CD Player
This remote control system can allow you to search discs by the
performer, disc title, and music genre.
With this disc search, you can easily find the disc you want to play.
Disc Title Input:
If your CD player or MD recorder has the disc memory function,
you can input the following information about the normal audio CDs
or MDs on the TV screen.
• For CDs: Performer, disc title, and music genre
• For MDs: Disc title and song titles
*What is a CD Text?

IMPORTANT:
In a CD Text, some information about the disc (its disc title, performer,
composer, arranger, etc.) is recorded.
Notes:
• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO)
jacks, you can use either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jack, connect it so that it is the last item in the series
of components. (For example, the CD player in the diagram to the
left.)
• If your audio component has two TEXT COMPU LINK jacks, you
can use either one. If it has only one TEXT COMPU LINK jack,
connect it so that it is the last item in the series of components. (For
example, the CD player in the diagram to the left.)
• “TEXT COMPULINK SOURCE NOT CONNECTED” appears on the
display in the following cases:
– When the connections explained to the left are not correctly done.
– When you try to use the TEXT COMPU LINK function a few
seconds after you turn on the connected equipment. This is not a
malfunction of the units.
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your CD player or MD
recorder.
IMPORTANT:
Set the Master/Slave Selector on the rear to “1(MASTER UNIT).”
• “2(SLAVE UNIT)” is just for the serviceman’s use. The TEXT
COMPU LINK remote control system does not function with the
selector set to “2(SLAVE UNIT).”
3. Connect your CD player, MD recorder and this
receiver, using the cables with RCA pin plugs (see
page 6).
If you turn on the receiver before turning on the other components
after connecting the components, the TEXT COMPU LINK remote
control system does not work correctly.
If this happens:
1. Turn off all the components including this receiver.
2. Turn on the connected components.
3. Turn on this receiver.
4. Plug the AC power cords of these components
above into the AC outlets.
5. When turning on these components for the first
time, turn on the connected components first,
then turn on this receiver.
