It strikes me that buying one of the Logitech "Harmony" programmable remotes to run these systems could be a good investment.

As mentioned by one member above, the fact that a lot of us only use our TTs for half the year, we have the other half to forget how they work.

They are unacceptably complex, so why even try to memorize the silly stack of commands, when you can program a device to do one of those tasks with one button press?

My personal finish to the TV Audio through the radio challenge

After reading the bits of information and trials of other Airstreamers' advice on this site concerning the audio/video challenges and then the back and forth with support from Airstream, who insisted I needed nothing other than the radio they installed to achieve TV audio through the Sony CD 5000 radio...you must also have a XA-300 Auxilary In Selector from Sony or similar to make it work. The Sony XA-300 is a product from the 2004-2006 era and is no longer manufactured although more current products would likely work in the same manner. My local non chain stereo/video store had to look around and found one in a Dallas distributor warehouse for $99.99, then two plug in connections with a provided wire and I was in business. We can now hear the TV when the roof air is on. In addition, there are 3 inputs, a USB for a PC, a headphone out, and the unit detects what's been plugged in. So.......after 7 years of ownership, it just got better!!!!! Thanks to all who addressed this issue.

And yet, The Sony STore appears to have them, and at a reduced price.

Try XA-300 | Sony Bus Auxiliary Input Adapter | Sony | Sony Store USA and when you put it in your "cart", it should show up in there at $75.00

Good luck!
