2020 Eagle HT fw. What to connect for ceiling speakers to work

2020 Eagle HT fw. Furion control center, 40 inch tv.
New purchase. Zones 1, 2 n 3 work on all but tv.
Only the hdmi cable is connected to the TV for my satellite.
What do I need to connect for the ceiling speakers to work?
Thank you for your responses.

Do you have the little remote for the radio /CD/DVD player? Check the control button is on the remote. Super hard to read the buttons on the remote. Or Google the manufacturers name for instructional video on YouTube.

Good luck.

I assume you have scrolled through the input options for the various choices to find which one your TV audio output is connected to. I can't look at our unit right now, but I think there is a separate audio cable that connects TV audio output to the amplifier on one of the input ports. If you put a DVD in the player, it should automatically turn your TV input to the DVD player and start right up so you can see the movie, and you should get sound through your speakers. If you don't see any audio cables connected to both the TV and Amplifier, that may be your issue. Usually they ship with an extra pair, mine was connected and had a spare set as well. You may need to remove the unit to get to the connections. To do that, you have to remove the top and bottom cover trim to get to the four screws that hold the unit in place. It can be tricky to get that trim piece off, the after that, it's easy to access everything.
While you are at it, check to be sure your speakers are wired correctly. Many of us discovered the speakers were all wired to just the left or right channel. You'll notice that if you listen to a CD with good stereo separation.

I would imagine you would need a audio out cable from the TV to the stereo. I believe there was a thread on here a while ago where somebody was trying to get this to work and just ended up adding a sound bar to the tv.

Thank you for your responses.
1/6/21 Follow up.
Made a few calls and did further research.
The dealer must have swapped out the TV as this is a 40 inch Insignia and not a Furrion. I love Samsung so think I'll go buy a 43" at Walmart for cheap money and end all my headaches.
Here's what I found...
TV must have hdmi-arc to support the audio over hdmi and then use arc on control center.
Digital audio will work if TV has that port then use digital on control center.
Old fashioned rca cables still an option.

Check with the manufacturer and see if they have a replacement. The manufacturer name should be on the radio or television. You can always check with local dealer or eBay.

Good luck

Assuming you have an RCA cable with a connection to the tv audio output, you have to have the stereo turned on and set to AUX 1. You should then get tv sound out of the ceiling speakers. I've noticed a slight delay in the audio coming from the speakers. It causes a reverb effect that is quite annoying. So, when I watch TV using the ceiling speakers, I turn the tv audio to "Mute" and have audio coming only through the ceiling speakers.

Hope that helps, and good luck!

Ours was wired wrong. Worked after I connected to the HDMI-ARC on TV. Ours is a Furrion unit and TV.
