Surround sound

I have a 2014 Wind River. It has surround sound (speakers in the ceiling),but it only works when you use the DVD player. Anyway to make it work with the TV? as the sound only comes out the rear of the TV. Thank you for all responses

Hello 1Longbow
Does your surrond sound amp have an input select switch? If so, then try one of the other inputs. If this does not work, you will need to connect the audio output of the TV to one of the surrond sound amp's inputs. This is done with a simple audio cord.
Best Regards
Dutch Master

Our GP came with a Vizio sound bar. Sounds great and negated the need to get into fancy wiring and upgrades.
I turn off the tv sound from the menu on the tv. All sound goes thru the bar mounted just below the tv.

Wind River Stereo System

We own an early Wind River with the Jensen TV and stereo system. If you give me a day or so (in storage), I will post directions for playing your TV thru the stereo system. It can be done without changing wiring or getting into the back of the TV. It's just in pushing the right buttons on the stereo. Maybe someone else can respond too.

Yep, check that your RCA cables are plugged in the right sockets.

Check that the Jensen amp is set to the right input and that the TV is outputting sound to the RCA cables.

We routinely plug an HDMI cable from our computers into the TV HDMI input. The sound goes from the computer via the HDMI cable to the TV, then gets rerouted to the Jensen amp via the RC cables and from there to the trailer's speakers.

The TV and Jensen manuals might also be helpful if you have them.

Wind River Stereo System

The "AUX" button controls the input from other devices, such as the TV. On ours, push this button twice to AUX 2 and it should work. You may have to turn the stereo button up more than normal, but the surround sound should work.

Related to this, make sure to turn the outside speakers off unless you want neighbors to hear whatever you're watching. On ours, once you turn the stereo on, all speakers are on including the bass (C).

Mine has the Jensen TV and Furrion stereo and you have to turn the TV sound off and select the correct input on the Furrion. I can't remember what it was without looking at the remote, sorry.
