Many of the new technologies are designed around the idea of saving space. In keeping with that vein, many companies have invested in developing virtual surround technology which allows the feeling of surround sound without the various speakers and often overwhelming amount of wiring. Pioneer has released its own share of these virtual systems to meet this demand. The most common may be the Pioneer GX3DVD. After setting it up and listening to the radio for a while, you will ultimately want to connect the system to your television. Within minutes you can complete this task and enjoy the full features of your GX3DVD.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Determine what kind of inputs your TV accepts. You can either use composite, component, or S-video to connect the unit to your television. If you are unsure of which connection you have, match the colour or shape of the connections on your television with the connections on the system.

  2. 2

    Connect the video to your television using the connection you decided upon. If component this involves connecting three ends to the television and three to the system. If you use another type of connection there will only be one connection at each end.

  3. 3

    Find the audio output on your television. A headphone jack can work with the GX3DVD. Ideally, you want to find a red and white stereo output.

  4. 4

    Connect the stereo output on the television to the stereo input on the system. If you are using a headphone jack, you will need to get a converter cable to turn the headphone signal into a stereo connection.

  5. 5

    Turn on the system and television. Test a DVD to make sure it plays on the television. Test the TV sound played through your system.

Tips and warnings

  • Remember to set up your system close enough to the television that the cables reach.
  • Many TV's will have more than one type of connection. If so pick the one with the best quality; component is best and then S-video.
