How does one tie in the TV to the speaker system

We have a new Flying cloud with a Samsung TV and Sony radio plus Samsung Blu-ray player. The Sony plays through the speakers under the dinette and over the front bedroom however I cannot get the TV to do the same. Any suggestions on how to play the TVS through the speaker would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a "source" button on the front of the Sony? If so, try pressing that button several times to see if it won't switch the input source to the TV.

Also check the back of the television to make sure that there are wires connected to its Audio-Out jacks.

Teagues is right. Press the source button to "CD2" (at least it is cd2 on my model)

Regards

I was getting ready for the spring and trying out my systems however I forgot how to get the Sony radio to play the TV and the Blu ray through the speakers. I set the sony radio to cd 2, turn on the external speakers and PCM but still no luck. Can you tell me what I might be missing. It worked last November without a problem.

Thanks John

I just went through the same difficulties last weekend; I share your frustration... I kept getting #$% not loaded on the CD2 display. Finally it worked ... wish I knew just what I did - LOL. The big problem is that we lose all of the settings / station presets / equalizer whenever we use the master switch store mode... and, frankly, I don't recall just how I finally did get it working last fall. Back to the Sony media center manual ...

It is frustrating. I spoke with Jacksonville as my dealership service center could not get to me until tomorrow but we had no luck. I will call colonial tomorrow and hope for better luck. If not it will have to go in for service. Not sure I want to drive two hundred miles but

Why don't you call them in the morning and ask to speak to someone in the service department?

They may be able to instruct you on this over the phone, saving the drive and time until/unless you know it needs hands-on adjustment.

Good luck,


Maggie

Makes me smile. Thirty five nights last summer and I still haven't figured it out. We would put the kids to bed in the front, set the dinette down and settle in to watch a movie. Of course we had the speakers in the bedroom turned off - not wanting to wake the kids. It didn't take long to discover that the movie played with music, but no voices. So.... probably half an hour then with the lights on and me stood up in my shorts reading the manual(s) and attempting several combinations of settings on the Sony to "fix" the problem. As you indicated above, one cannot have the sound set to Dolby when half the speakers are turned off, as Dolby sends the voice track to - you guessed it - the speakers in the bedroom. Why pray tell would anyone want this? I can only assume that the Sony player is meant for a car, not a trailer, and splitting the sound track among the speakers in a car doesn't matter.

And you're right - the Sony erases all the settings each time the power is cut. And despite my self assured smugness around electronic devices, I still cannot remember the sequence of menu items needed to set up the sound correctly. Every one of our movies starts with me, in my shorts, lights on and manual in hand. The DaVinci code is a simpler problem by far.

Don

btw - my speakers were wired "backwards" as well. The "front" speakers according to the Sony were the speakers above the rear dinette and the "rear" speakers according to the Sony were in the front bedroom. I guess the Airstream guy hooked the wiring up as he looked at the radio - i.e. facing toward the rear of the trailer.

Found this video on YouTube. Its long but explains in detail how the Sony system works in the 2007-2009 units. Maybe it will shed some light on your system Not sure how to inbed the video in this reply, so try this link or put "How to use your Airstream AV System from 2007-2009" in the YouTube search field.

I will be calling them in the morning. today they only had one technician on and he was tired up all day on a project. I am hoping he can walk me through like last year. However I am not optimistic as I have done everything the technician recommended from the main plant and still was not alb to get it working.

Lucky Dog thanks for pointing out the video. Unfortunately I still cannot get it to work.
My thanks to all for the responses.

John

We enjoyed having the TV sound coming into the dinette speakers when we had the original Sony TV in our Bambi, but when we got a new Samsung, I, too, have given up on getting TV sound to those speakers. Bums me out, so I am watching this thread... I have just about decided it's a Sony-to-Sony thing and have done my nest to be happy with the new TV without the sound to the speakers.
