Cool, would have been nice if the maul came with it.

Off to the concertone site I go to look for a PDF.....

Standard learning procedures I assume?

I don't have the exact instructions but is was in the manual we got with the trailer. I know she had to point the remotes at one another and transfer info from the TV remote to the concertone remote one function/number at a time. By number I mean the 0 - 9 numbers for changing channels. My manual is in the trailer at my campsite.

I seem to recall the manual for the 700 was posted here as a PDF somewhere.

Thanks for all the great info. Have to check into wiring soon. I have had no problems with my unit in the 2010 unit we traded and just haven't had the time to look into the audio. I knew someone out there would have the answer. Only had this one a few days and still getting the honeydos before I look into anything else. Thanks again....

Funny this topic should come up. I fooled and fooled with mine last night. The surround sound will work while playing a DVD but I can't get it to work with just the TV.

You must route stereo from the tv to the Concertone. It goes without saying that the TV must be able to output Dolby signals.

I am pretty handy with a screw driver, not much on electronics, but with a lil guidance I should be able to figure it out if it's just plugging in a cable or two. Herk, hint, hint.

If you have this (picture below) or something like it on the wall behind your TV, connect an audio cable from the audio OUT on the TV to the audio IN on the panel (in this picture it's the two jacks at the upper right and they are color coded). You can buy a short audio cable at Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc. Get the cheapest cable they have because the "Monster" or other high-end cables simply won't make any difference to such a low-end audio/video system.

Once you have the cables connected then the switch will have to be placed in the AUX position (I think....going from memory here and you know how that is for us old folks). Then, you will have to set the Concertone in one of the Aux settings too when watching TV so the sound will come FROM the TV to the Concertone then TO the speakers. Voila!

All this is contingent of course on the wall panel having been wired correctly at the factory...

I ran the L/R audio RCA jacks from the TV's audio out through the hole in the entertainment center to an unused set of jacks in the back of the Concertone.
(I use AV2 to watch TV and adjust the volume with the Concertone unit. Trying to use both the TV and the Concertone volume at the same time will cause problems due to the additional signal processing time running through the Surround Sound. It will sound like the audio is being played in a steel drum). You can also use the accessory pad like Willis suggested if your camper has that optional feature. (Also available on their web site as an optional purchase) I have one but prefer to use the ones behind the cabinet and hide the wires.

If your TV has RCA outputs you can do it that way. If your TV has an Optical (Fiber optic) output you will need to buy an optical to RCA stereo converter box (about 60 bucks) to interface your newer TV with the Concertone's RCA inputs.

BUT if there are no "LINE LEVEL" outputs AT ALL; only speaker level (like just a headphone jack); you will never get surround sound out of the TV since the processing of the different channels is done in the amplifier with the line level signals.

Hope this helps.
