Unhappy

Hi Jay:
The Sony XA-300 works great. I'll check out the Blitzsafe Audio Device (Blitzsafe) for the truck, sounds good to me.
We spent a couple of days at San Mateo campground last week. I learned an aggravating lesson... seems if you install a new system in OSX, you wipe the iPod library the first time you use it! Now I'll be spending a lot of time rebuilding it. This time though it will be completely backed up on another external drive. I didn't realize what had happened until I plugged it in to the trailer. Over 10 gigs of music (*sigh)

Nope Blitzsafe doesn't work with our vehicle. Something about a problem with it may cause the airbags to deploy?

Should I be able to listen to the TV audio through the stereo system? I see 2 sets of cables leaving the TV and entering the stereo. One set plugs in with the "JVC-AUX" switcher. As is, if I change the stereo input to "Line In" with the TV on I don't hear any new audio. If I unplug the TV cables and plug in my iPod I can get it playing through the stereo (yippee!!!).

I also found that I can plug my iPod into the back of the TV and listen to it as the Component - much more convenient than hassling with the stereo and adding another switch. If I could then hear this same audio through the stereo system instead of just the weak TV speakers then I would be really happy, and there would be no need for additional hardware.

Second question, when playing a DVD should I be getting any audio from the TV? Now, there isn't any, just the speakers at the front and the back of the trailer. There is a "speaker select switch" on the side of the stereo cabinet. When set to "In" I have front and rear, "Out" rear only, and "Both" is, yes, both.

Thank you. This is hard to troubleshoot with cables running through the walls. At least it only took 3 screws to get into the inputs on the back-side of the stereo.

Post Figured out half the battle

On the TV Setup menu there is an option for AV2 for In or Out. If I change to Out then I have TV audio over the stereo - including Component, which is now my iPod!!!

Maybe if I read the TV manual (gasp!) I'll be able to figure out the DVD audio from the TV issue.

Good idea using the component jacks on the TV for your iPod! I never checked that out but instead did the A/B switch on the original post.

No, you won't get any sound from the TV when using the DVD - at least I don't..

can I reopen this can o worms? Im trying to build a stereo system after tearing out my 8 track player and am/fm radio in my 70 ambassador.
I suspect I need a car stereo to start, but then I want to be able to use an iPod for sure and then i want to add a tv and have the sound come from the stereo and coach speakers. Can someone PLEASE guide me through this? Im NOT good at this stuff. What does the sony XA 300 piece you talked about do?

If you need help, let me know, I'm glad to assist any way possible.

I am looking to hook up a system in my 1970 Ambassador and dont know where to start. I took out the 8 track player and want a system that I can play my iPod through the cabin speakers , as well as mount a TV and have the audio go through the stereo and cabin speakers. I dont know where to start! Do I get a car stereo that plays DVD's as well? What hooks into what? Would really appreciate your guidance.
