After the switch is in TV position then you have to turn on the DVD player which is also the suround sound amplifier and you will need the remote. After it checks for a DVD then hit function button on remote once to AV-IN with TV on turn up volume on DVD unit with remote to near max. Next the TV remote is needed to get into the TV menus under sound options and select different ones till you hear the surround sound speakers. Surround sound volume setting up to 50 and TV sound just so you can hear it from the TV speakers. Ours the sound setting on TV is Sound = Simulated and MTS = Stero. The third function on the Surround sound unit DVD player is a FM radio and the remote controls the stations and volume. Hope this helps.
I hate to resurrect an old thread with the recurring problem of no surrond sound from the TV...BUT, we're another victim. We have a "new" 2007 Itasca Horizon with a Sony Aquos 37" mid-coach TV.
We followed the instructions in the Winnie booklet which duplicates most of what Kenneth posted back in 2007. (We did not see a setting that referenced "MTS".)
-- We have the DVD player set on "TV/VCR" with sound on MAX.
-- On the Sony Aquos TV we have set the AUDIO menu for Surround = "on"
-- On the Sony OPTIONS menu we can toggle between FIXED and VARIABLE sound source. When on "fixed" we get sound through the TV, but when we switch to "variable" (per the instruction book) we loose ALL sound.
-- We DO get surround sound from a DVD movie.
-- We DO get surround sound from dash radio.
-- We DO have the dash switch on TV.
-- We DO have the radio in AUX mode.
We are on the coach's maiden voyage, so this is just one of the few bugs we are working out. Obviously, this is not critical, but has certainly become a challenge.
Any other suggestions? We do have a follow-up appointment with a dealer in a couple of weeks. Would love to not have to pay a tech $125/hr to show us how to use the equipment. Having read the other postings, it may take the tech 24 hours to figure it out.
