Surround sound

On the 2015 Forester 2801 GTS, does the TV at the table have surround sound attached to the ceiling speakers? I receive sound from the Jensen radio through the speakers but I cannot figure out if the audio from the TV will go through the same speakers.

On mine it's a bit different, you have to select AV2 on the Jensen and set the front/rear fader to rear. You also have to change the audio out on the TV, if I remember right you change it from variable to fixed. You only have to do that once if you use the surround from now on.

They must have changed it on the 2016 models. No settings to change on TV. Simply mode selection on radio.
Brian or Josh posted a FR video on how to change the TV and stereo for the earlier models. . I think it was on Facebook

I think they went from our composite cables to HDMI on yours.

When I go to the rear TFT on the Jensen control panel, it shows rear "off" with the universal no symbol. How would one turn that "on"? I would assume that would have to be on in order for the surround sound to work in the rear portion of the motorhome.

I don't use the rear TFT at all, just AV2 and slide the fader to rear, you get to it thru the equalizer screen.
Edit: I just remembered the rear TFT is for a rear camera
