I've had an occasional problem with the cable from the dvd player working loose from the back of the tv. Make sure all cables are plugged in tightly to the tv. Cheap RCA actually works pretty well for me when plugged in to tv.

On our Toshiba had to go to the "input" menu on the TV and change it to something like HDMI, video 1 can't remember exactly but otherwise all we got was the sound.

Had problems on my our 2011, looked behind the Toshiba and the DVD player wires weren't even plugged in the tv. Tried the proper hook up, sorta hard to see behind the tv, and nothing. Took it to the dealer, they stated on the repair order that the standard hook up did not work but didn't state what they did to get it to work. That being said, satisfied with the cheap RCA unit for now.

The most frustrating part of playing a DVD throught the 378 Georgetown is the pathetic 480i resolution. You then have the pretty nice Toshiba 40" HDTV playing a muddy DVD through the radio hookup.I don't think the HDMI menu will help as you are using either yellow or RCA component plugs for input. There is no HDMI high definition output on your radio
3D Sound Bar Home Theater System | HT-CT550W | Sony USA
This is what I am having installed when we get back from our next vacation. I will add a Blu ray over the passenger seat cabinet with the amplifier behind the TV, sound bar over the screen and the wireless subwoofer next to the dinette.With 400w this should rock the coach pretty well. Forest River cannot be counted on the deliver the sound or movie quality picture without a little bit of help.

Alan

What cable and output from the TV sound did you use?
And the amp box is behind TV. Do you adjust sound with TV or amp?
Did you program another remote?
Sorry about all the questions but I like your setup.
I would also like to see how you mounted the sound bar.
A few pictures would be nice.
Thanks
