The HDMI router OUTPUT plugs into the HDMI port #1 on the TV where the Furrion DVD was originally plugged into.

(Sorry I failed to mention this step)

But it's an easy fix and works great even though I am going to replace the speakers with upgrades > can't stand the mild vibrations and boom buzz > mostly playing DVD9 discs.

I don't know who or why someone has started referring to a HDMI matrix switcher as a router. We use 3 x 4, 1x8, 3x1, and more configurations on residential installs as well as on my showroom. I have never played with a matrix to see if it would pass the HDMI (ARC=Audio Return Channel) thru them. I don't see why it wouldn't work because most HDMI devices now support 2 way communication. All devices involved would have to support ARC.

Right, correct; accurate. NOT a router.
But what I said works and I offered a solution anyone can reproduce.

I am still researching upgrading the ceiling speakers > generally it's a nice surround then a DVD will buzz and rattle speakers at any volume. Was nice it's pre wired for living room & kitchen and/or bedroom and/or outside BUT the 38FLSA Pinnacle is worth replacing the ceiling surround speakers.

I think it was MagnoliaTom who tried upgrading his speakers and it still sounded like crap.
You might get rid of your buzz but it's the amp inside the Furrion where the real garbage is.

I wasn't aiming that at you HHNET, after you called the switcher a router, I went and did a Google search and noticed that some do call a matrix/switcher a router now and being in this type of business, had never heard it referred to as a router. The newest HDMI standard is now a two communication, so if the devices being used support this standard, then your method will work fine. I replaced my ceiling speakers in my older Jayco that I no longer have with some residential 6" speakers ( had to cut the hole larger ) and they sounded 100% better. One of the originals was bad though. That TT had a Jenson DVD deck in it. My current Pinnacle has a Jensen unit as well, but I never use it. I installed an LG Blu-Ray HTIB ( Home Theater in a Box ) system, used the 2 front's that came with it, put the subwoofer in the back wall of the tv lift and disconnected the "B" speakers from the Jensen for my rear surround, and all works great. The sound is 100% better than the "A", and "B" was thru the Jensen. I don't even use the outside speakers because I have a bluetooth Boombox that also plugs into my Directv receiver that is mounted in my underbelly compartment.

You can run a 3.5mm cable from TV to the aux plug in the stereo. Choose aux on the stereo remote and the sound will go to the A,B, or C speakers. Or you could do like I did and buy an inexpensive sound bar and mount it below the TV. Worked great for me!

Here's what I did for outdoor TV mounted in the cargo compartment: purchase a Bluetooth audio transmitter, plug into line audio output of TV, then my Furion in the rear of the unit powers the outdoor speakers and I plugged a Bluetooth receiver into the aux. paired them and now audio from tv in front of rig in cabinet travels via BT to rear Furion and then comes out speakers side mounted either side of entry door. No wires, and works great. I can even add a portable Bluetooth pill type speaker as the transmitter allows two devices to pair. Cool if you are sitting a good distance from tv and its late at night and don't want to disturb the neighbors with tv audio.
