surround sound

I've upgraded the front tv in our 05 DSDP with the factory installed SONY surround sound to a SAMSUNG 32" flat screen.
I am not sure how to connect the tv to the receiver to get the system working correctly.
Any ideas?

You should have found some RCA plugs in the bay where the old TV was. Plug them into the proper colored connection on the new TV and it should work, might have to set up the new TV for audio out in the menu guide??

Surround sound

When I changed over to a front LCD TV I had the same problem. Another member suggested to plug in the RCA cables as noted and then set the in-dash radio to Aux 1, I believe. I think it was Max Hubrich that came up with the suggestion.

Anyway if you cycle through the selections on the radio you will find it. Mine works great using that technique.

I also have a 2005 DSDP and I changed my front TV out a couple of years ago. You have a Sony Home Theater System factory installed by Newmar and it has an optical audio in port. If your TV has optical audio out you simply run an optical cable between the two. If your TV has coaxial audio out or some other aduio out you need to buy an adapter to go between the two.

Then you turn on your TV and turn its sound down. Turn on the Sony and select LPT 1 (I believe) and the TV will play through the Surround Sound System. It is awesome to watch TV and listen to sound through the 5.1 surround sound system and subwoofer. Most of the networks transmit in 3.1 or 5.1 sound and most of the satellite TV transmits in 3.1 sound.

Forget trying to send sound through the radio speakers - your 2005 DSDP has a built-in sound system that is far superior.

There are TWO ways surround sound gets from the TV to the Amplifier/decoder, and 3 ways sound gets from one to the other total

Mehod one is standard Stereo, not surround, and that's two cables, RCA jacks, normally Red and White color codes (Red is Right, white left) This is NOT surround sound though

You may have a 3rd RCA jack labeled "Digital" or "SP/DIF" or "Dolby" or anything but Left,Right or Video.. This is a digital audio link and carries surround sound

More common is a small black "knob" usually square, you pull it out and behind it is a red light (LED) and a "D" shaped hole with a round hole behidn it.

This is a Toss-Link connector.. there will be another just like it on the back of the Audio Processor/amplifier/receiver. ANd that's how it's done.. Any good audio store will ahve the fiber-optic cable to match.. Even Wall-Mart I suspect
Home is where I park it!
