2017 Ventana Le 4037 Satellite and surround sound.

2017 Ventana Le 4037
I am the second owner of this coach and there are not many manuals. I purchased the coach from an estate and the family is not helpful. I connected my Direct TV to the automatic dish and was able to get TV. I connected the receiver H24 to two leads one a 75 ohm and the other to the HDMI cable.
I was able to view satellite programs on the TV above the dash and unable to get the sound through the Sony receiver model # unknown at this time .Sound only from the TV.
I tried all setting on the receiver to no avail. I suspect that I need to run a HDMI cable from the Direct TV receiver to the Sony amp input for the satellite and connect another HDMI cable to satellite output to the TV. I should be able to get surround sound on the front TV.
How do I get satellite signal to other TVs? How do I get the TV above the sofa to have surround sound?

Same exact model, that cabinet is pretty full. Newmar provided me with all of the drawings for entertainment. Everything should be in the cabinet that you need.

There are so many things to check for the problem. I will try to list them, but first are you getting any TV audio from the sound system. Check the OTA channels and Bluray/DVD player. Only the main TV above the couch will send audio to the receiver. I don't have the over the dash TV, so I can't confirm this.

1) Check TV audio setting for audio being sent to the A/V receiver. You may have to turn off the TV audio. Also check for the Dolby Digital audio to be turned on.

2) Check your connections to the A/V receiver. This will be the hardest thing to do. There should be HDMI connections into the receiver and then out from the receiver to a HDMI splitter that sends the video to each TV.

On most Newmars I've dealt with, the front TV is NOT the main TV. The surround system is only connected to the main TV, usually one on a televator. If you want surround on that front TV you'll need to connect it. You might be able to run an optical cable from the sat receiver to the surround system and accomplish what you want.
