154BH and TV and DVD players through built in speaker?

Has anyone figured out how to use the Aux jack on the radio to use the speakers with the TV and DVD?
AUX works fine with my iPod, but would be great with the TV too.

Thanks!

If your TV has a headphones jack - use that into the AUX IN....our works fantastic. It aint surround sound, but the TT speakers are pretty sweet and the tone quality is nice when you use the Bass Boost feature.

If you have RCA jack (one red - one white) audio output you should be able to use an RCA to mini plug adapter (check Wally World - they should have them in their electronics section)

I hook my DVD player up to the TV, then use the headphones out jack of the TV and plug up to the "Aux In" port on the face of the TT Stereo. Both these are 3.5mm female miniplugs (stereo) and 3.5 male-to-male miniplug (stereo) cable is all I need for TV / DVD and iPod. When you plug in to the headphones out port of the TV, the TV speakers mute automatically - this may not be the case when using the "audio out" connections on some TVs. The two pictures attached show my headphones out jack and the "Audio Out" (second plug from bottom) jack on my TV....in this case BOTH are 3.5mm Female MiniPlugs....so check out your gear before cable shopping! Happy Camping.

Also - I attached pictures (above) of an RCA Stereo (red / white) to 3.5 Miniplug (stereo) - this is what TommyOC was referring to above. These come in ALL kinds of configurations and lengths...(male-to-male / female-to-male / female-to-female) so you might have shop a little to get what works best.

I tried the Audio out jack on the tv with a Aux cable to the aux jack, but it didnt work. Thanks for all the advice, Next time I take her out I'll try some of your suggestions.

I just put in the TV and DVD in our new 154BH. I used the same configuration as ThreeButchers. TV Headphone jack out to the trailer's stereo Aux in. Anything playing on or through the TV will come out the headphone jack. Sometimes you have to go into a menu setting on the TV's audio settings, but not usually. Sometimes the TV audio level will affect the level at the stereo so you might have to play with both levels.

SWEET....assuming you have the same stereo - the EQ button will cycle you through several presets. Stop on DSP. Select the DSP menu by pressing the jog dial and you will run through a series of custom EQ settings. Turn on the "loud" option by selecting it (push in the jog dial) then rotate the jog dial to toggle it on / off. It makes a HUGE difference to the tone quality! Excellent bass boost....
