Joel,

I am also getting a loud fuzz from the rear speakers when listening to TV or DVD on the main TV. I am not sure what to do about this issue, I have been searching on the net, but no luck. If you come up with something please post.

As mentioned above, I would almost rather just use my TV's speakers for TV and DVD and bypass the Concertone. It does pretty good for XM and Radio.

Frank

It is in the surround circuit, contact Jeff Richardson at Forest River Rockwood division, that noise is unacceptable, I went through three

I asked the dealer repairman about listening to the TV with out the ZX600concertone, and he simply unplugged the small single wire behind my venturer TV, and pushed a setup button on the remote- not sure which one, but it was the TV remote. As far as the wire.... Try hiding it better out of view.
I'm sure it is needed for something! Randy

We need help figuring out the whole surround sound thing! We have the Rockwood 8317SS and when the radio or tv is on, sound seems to come out from all speakers and you can change it through the different areas. The problem we have is when we put in a dvd. We have to have both buttons for A and B on. Music comes out of A and you can't hear what anyone is saying unless you have B on. And has you may know, B are the speaker in the master bedroom, right above the master bed! (my son turned on the tv early saturday morning and the DVD from the night before was still in there, scared my husband and I to death) Of course, when you are watching a DVD, none of the speakers toward the back of the trailer seem to be on. Is this right or is there something wrong with our speaker set up?? It just doesn't seem right that you have to have B speakers on to watch a DVD.

Sound On Tv

PULL THE TV OFF THE MOUNT BY PULLING UP.
JUST BEHIND THE TV THERE ARE RCA TYPE PLUGS. PULL OUT THE ONE FOR SOUND WHICH I BELIEVE IS THE BLACK ONE - NOT SURE -THE THE TV WILL AUTOMATICALLY GO TO ITS OWN SPEAKERS.TOOK US A WHILE TO FIGURE IT OUT.

Remember that the DVD has to be recorded for surround, in order for your 2 rear speakers to work, you should be able to hear all of them through an Fm Station though, and no you should not have to hear the voices through B, make sure you check the treble/Bass and Balance

It could be a problem with the surround circuit, God Knows that has been a problem, also if you pull the stereo , check all speaker and wire connections

Thanks for the insight. I think we may have an issue with the surround sound. They just installed a new concertone, wouldn't be surprised if it didn't get put back together right. (of course, after we picked it up from having warranty repairs, we now have more issues that it needs to go back in for!) I will have them look at this. Now here is a weird issue with the surround, we put in Finding Nemo, and sound was coming from where it should be coming from and didn't have to have to be on B but once we changed it to a newer movie, the B needed to be on to hear the voices again. I guess this would make a difference if the sound on both movies was recorded differently??? This is not my thing, has you can probably tell!

Andrea,

Look at each DVD, see what kind of surround it was recorded in, it sounds like Ex Nemo is Dolby surround, the Newer movies are usualy Dolby 5.1 even 6.1, if something is wired wrong, or surround circuit is faulty, it is supposed to seperate these sound, IE Voice surround Bass, to the speakers, also make sure try the different sound modes on the unit, that might help


Also look in the manual for DVD audio setting

You can go into the menu and change the audio Format, If you dont have a Manual, one is posted on the Home page on the right hand side

Sorry the Administrators are goin crazy ,this is my 4th Edit.

The more I think about it, the more I am thinking about the sound mode you are in, make sure you are not on Matrix, that will make the voices go away on certain DVD's try your sound modes with the newer DVD playing, I hope you get this going, sorry so long winded!!!
