TV Audio

I know this has been discussed before but can't find the topic. Is there a way to route the dvd audio through the TV instead of the dvd speakers while watching a movie? The TV is over the bed while the speakers are on the other end of the trailer. If the fan or AC is on, it's impossible to hear the speakers.
Thanks

Hi

Sure it's possible. How you do it depends a lot on which of the many disk players and televisions you happen to have. There might be combos that simply can't do it. My guess is that they would be pretty old at this point. One way to help with this sort of confusion over equipment would be to change your user info to list the year and model of AS you own. In most cases it's a dig into the menu on the TV sort of thing (internal speakers vs external).

Our Airstream is a new 2017 16' Sport. The dvd player is a JVC and the TV is an LG. The front of the JVC opens up like a cabinet door to access the dvd player. I can't find anything in the manuals where the TV speaker can be selected over the remote speakers.

Isn't the DVD player connected to the TV by HDMI? HDMI carries audio and video. What are you using to control the volume? If you are using the JVC remote, try the LG remote. Where does the sound come from when you watch off-air TV? How do you control the volume then?

I'm having the same problem with the same equipment, I have yet to find the menu setting to get the audio to play through the tv via HDMI.

not possible
though the TV is HDMI, the rcvr is NOT

there is an up-converter in the back of the rcvr , just video is sent in low resolution to the TV.

we replaced the TV and got one with a built in DVD and Audio out.

Now we cam play the TV /DVD audio over the overhead speakers or the TV speakers

After several trips was annoyed that while sleeping on sofa I had to listen to whatever was being played on DVD and sent to tv in bed area. Finally a nerd friend figured out how to solve my problem. No it wasn't ear plugs. On radio adjust fader 100 % to rear then turn up radio sound 100%. Then adjust tv sound as needed. It's not very loud but it works. Voila. Problem solved.

I didn't understand that the JVC receiver was also the DVD player. I have a single satellite receiver in the living area. I got a modulator which takes composite video (yellow jack) and stereo audio (red and white jacks) and puts it on a TV channel of your choice. I wire it into the trailer with a combiner at the satellite jumper. Presto, low resolution video and stereo audio at the back TV (and front, for that matter, but I run an HDMI cable to the front TV). I used UHF, but one of the older Channel 3/4 modulators might be even better as those channels are no longer used.

Here's one:
https://www.radioshack.com/products/...k-rf-modulator

eBay is full of them.

If you don't have the single cable TV/satellite wire and the satellite jumper wire like my trailer it would be a relatively simple project to wire one in, depending on where everything is located. You would want to put it near the switchplate that selects between antenna and cable.

A few questions:
What is the model number of your JVC receiver?
Do you have the "upconverter" referred to above? What is it's manufacturer and model number?
Where is it located with respect to the antenna/cable switch plate?
Do you have the satellite/cable jumper plate? The parts manual seems to indicate tht you do.
If you have the jumper plate, is it near the JVC receiver?

Sorry for the "20 questions" but I'm not familiar with your trailer and I think there is probably a plug and play solution to your problem.

This is what I was afraid of. What TV did you get as a replacement?

So I did what jsabatier suggested and got the same results. If I adjust the fader all to rear speakers and turn up the volume, sound comes out of the TV. That means audio is getting to the TV somehow.
The problem is, who wants to keep the reciever volume all the way up and forget about it, late at night.

We're having the same problem with our 2017 16' Sport. Let us know if you have a good solution outside of getting a new TV or the fadar solve
