Question TV Surround Sound Question

Maybe I just don't know what I am doing, but should the TV play through the surround sound system on the interior of the MH? When the DVD player is on, it works great. But when just the TV is on (we don't have satellite, we just use the antenna), the sound only comes through the TV and no where else. There was no sound from the TV when we first brought the MH out, and my BIL changed a setting to get the sound on the TV. Maybe we missed something?

It is going back into the dealer next week for some additional warranty work and just trying to finalize my list. Is this something that needs to be on it?

This is a great forum. Thanks to all!

The dealer should be able to correct this for you. They did for me.

When they pulled the in-dash radio out, there was a multitude of rca plugs. Some from the tv and some going out of the sound system. They eventually found a combination that allowed me to use AUX 1 for sound from the DVD and AUX 2 for sound from the tv. The outside speakers will also work from AUX 1 and AUX 2.

Same issue

I had the same issue with my 2011 31JK. I thought it was just crazy to go to the trouble of installing surround sound and only the Radio/DVD played through it. Mine has a box in the cab where the TV is with R/W/Y F connectors which I think are from the DVD/Radio. It has 1 input and 2 output. One to the TV and I think one to the outside TV hookup. I looked up the mfg and order a different box that allows me to have multiple inputs and outputs.

I have not installed it yet but my plan is to be able to play the DVD on one TV and satellite/antenna on a different one. i also have a TV in the Bedroom which i'll have to run the R/W/Y connectors too since it only has 75ohm.

I would say that the Surround Sound/Satellite/DVD setup in the unit was thrown together but not planned out very well.

Our MH is at the dealer for warranty work. I took a copy of MichaelD's response to them and we will see what happens. I will let you all know the outcome.

So the word from the dealer is they cannot make the surround sound work through the tv, only the dvd. Even with the specific directions from MichaelD that I had given them. I am sure they just did not want to mess with it. Oh well, we can live without it and I just don't feel like arguing over it with them.

If anybody else finds that it is supposed to work through the tv as part of the original setup, please let me know.

Mine was fixed under warranty, by Aberdeen RV Center in Aberdeen, Mississippi.
I wish I had actually been present when they got it working so I could tell you what they did.

On our 2012 Melbourne 29D, I changed the speaker setting on the tv. in either the Set-up or Sound menu(momentary senior moment)! Volume is then controlled through in-dash dvd player in one of the aux. lines. Hope this helps.

Although I don't know your specific setup here is what needs to be accomplished regardless of the vehicle.

First the TV sound is only going to come from the TV since that is where the tuner is. The DVD sound can come from either the stereo, TV or both depending on the setting.
If you have easy access to your TV look behind it and see where the Red and white RCA wires are fed into. If they are in the TV audio input that is your DVD sound. If you can live with the DVD always coming from the surrond sound then unplug the red and white jacks and proceed as below. Leave the yellow Video feed in the TV input so your DVD will play through the TV.

Now the hard part. Your going to need to pull your stereo out of it's mounted location to access the back unless you can do it by some other means. If you have a Jensen stereo there are going to be RCA jack audio feeds and outputs which should be labled as Aux 1, Aux 2 and so on. If you do not have any open female RCA audio feeds in white or red your going to need to pull one of the feed lines that you think you will never use like an exterior or bedroom feed line.

Before disconnecting anything in back you need to figure out which set of RCA plugs is currently feeding to your TV. To do that simply put on the DVD player with a DVD and play it through the TV you want the TV sound coming from. There will be no sound on the TV due to the disconnecting of the RCA jacks previously so unplug one of the yellow audio feeds and see if the TV looses picture. If it did not plug it back in and repeat the process until it goes blank. Once you locate it plug the yellow back in, now know the set of RCA cables you are going to disconnect from the Aux output and use to back feed your TV sound into the stereo. The three cables should be connected together.

Now disconnect the red and white wires and plug them into the open audio input that you have chosen. Plug the red and white jacks into the audio output of your TV and turn on both to check that sound is coming through the stereo. You are going to need to select the AUX input that you have plugged into to get sound out of the stereo.

Sorry so lenghty, it sounds harder than it is. Take your time and you should have it done within an hour or so.

The only way you can have DVD sound on the TV and stereo is to run another set of RCA wires between the TV and stereo which I doubt you want to do.
