Bedroom speakers cutting off with DVD

We have the upgraded A/V package for our '08 28 ft Safari. Then we insert a DVD in the head unit the bedroom speakers cut off and all of the sound comes through the speakers in the living room area and sub-woofer.

That's great for watching a movie from the couch, but when we want to swing the television around to watch a movie from the bedroom we're not going to have any sound.

Does anyone else have this problem or a solution for it?

Without knowing the details of your system, it sounds like it may be a setting on your Audio/DVD unit. Most of the recent units have a menu that you can access to control stereo vs. surround sound. You should check the owner's manual for more info.

Are you absoutely sure there is no sound coming out or could the rear speakers be acting as rear 5.1 surround speakers? If this is the case they won't always emit sound. It depends on the program you are watching.

Yup... there's no sound coming from them at all. I think it may be what you mentioned about a setting on the unit. I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Maybe I'll look for a 10 year old kid, hand him the remote and watch him figure it out in less than 20 seconds.

Try the sound button on the top Right corner of the dvd player remote.
I had the same problem. It will change the dolby config and thus changing the sound on your speakers.

Good luck with that. I had a large introduction to the stereo last year. Check my posts on Stereo problems.

Just recently also found that if you use the outdoor speaker setting (I installed a wireless "rock" speaker), it also cuts off the rear speakers. I got the wiring diagrams from AS, and good luck to figure how to change that...



Oh, and another minor, but annoying annoyance was reduced by setting the fader to emphasize the back speakers. Then it is not so annoying sitting right next to the front speakers.

Oh, and another minor, but annoying annoyance, when the power is shut off to the trailer, the stereo loses all its settings...

Ah to be annoyed.. Keeps the blood going, however.

I know this is an old thread, but I have info that bears mentioning.

As we know, the A/V upgrade package includes a DVD head unit. This head unit decodes Dolby Digital surround sound (aka 5.1) and outputs 4.0 surround sound (L,R,Surround L, Surround R). The bedroom speakers switch to left and right surround speakers, which is why they suddenly get quiet when watching a movie. They are in fact working, but since the dialog is in the front two speakers, you are only going to hear surround effects in the bedroom.

To largely solve this, using the remote, select the audio track for the DVD and switch to something that is the equivalent of Dolby Digital 2.0 or stereo. Most DVD's have multiple audio tracks on them. The result is beautiful stereo in the bedroom speakers.

Well Chris - It may be an older thread but your response is a timely one since I started the thread and still haven't figured out the solution. We happen to be in our AS tonight on our way to the 4CU New Years rally. In a few minutes we'll be popping in a DVD and we'll try your suggestion. I'll let you know the results!

Wouldn't you know it... the DVD I was watching didn't have an audio setting. So, I went to page 24 of the manual and played around with the audio output level and got the bedroom speakers to come on. Thanks for the suggestion.
