How Can I Expand the TV Sound?

When playing a DVD, all five speakers are used and I am satisfied. However, when watching TV, its built-in speakers are used and when it is raining, it is very difficult to hear more then 6 ft. away (maybe sign of old age).

With the DVD unit and its Function button, I can place it in the "AV" mode and get better sound out of the ceiling speakers. The problem is that the TV sound is not Dolby 5.1 and since there is no sound content for the rear speakers (up front in MH), nothing comes out.

Has anyone been able to get TV sound (from antenna) out of all for ceiling speakers?
Hank

Do you have the RCA RTD7W DVD player ?
If so, it seems to be very simple.
Connect an Optical cable from the TV out to the DVD in jacks.
Push the 'Optical' button on the remote control.


Here's a user manual:

(this assumes the TV has an optical out as most new TVs do)

Plug one of these from the tv to the radio/stereo/cd player. Remember it must have the two rings on the male connector for stereo.

My 2012 Berk has a Memorex STS2891-RV DVD player. This unit is not commercial and is a special for the RV industry. It is a combo AM/FM receiver, audio amplifier and DVD player.

I have no problem in getting the TV audio into the DVD Player's audio amp. The problem is that the TV's audio is stereo and the DVD player is looking for Dolby 5.1. Therefore, the DVD player puts out no sound in the rear two speakers. There is no control capability to have the DVD player put the front to channels on the rear speakers.

Furthermore, this DVD player has no optical jacks.

Well seems you have your system down pat. I suggest contacting your local stereo shop.

I do not have my system down pat. If I did, I wouldn't be asking questions. My DVD unit does not have a 3.5mm Stereo Audio jack. It has a manufacturer date of 2010 and has Component Video and Composite video out and RCA audio L & R jack inputs.

Get a Bluetooth transmitter to plug into the TV and get a Bluetooth speaker.

My Memorex unit does not have an optical sound input. Your RCA RTD7W is more up to date as opposed to my 2010 unit. I am sure if your unit receives Dolby 5.1, it will play it. I do not know however whether it will play normal TV stereo on the rear speakers (over the drivers seat).

Thanks for the info. I will look into your unit more to see if I should make a change.

I-RV You ask a question on a forum so people are going to "TRY" to help out. It is better to talk to a stereo expert rather than. Never mind.
