Toshiba sound set up

From this symtom sounds as though the TV auto section is blown out or is not set up properly. When I got MH home I didn't realize it had surround sound (for the TV) till I poked around. Took a while to get it so Here's my settings Toshiba 40" and RCA surround.

On TV menu for sound: Advanced audio- PC No, HDMI auto, MTS stero Optical output format Dolby. Thats the important one, it causes the TV outputs FR added to be read as Dolby by the RCA.

On the RCA when you turn it on, select "optical" and if things are working ok I turn the TV vol to 2 and increase the RCA till sound fills the room, it will, if set up right. Its not a 10,000 home theater but it works prettly well for a "mobile home".

Wish it was that easy but the Toshiba you can not turn off the speakers from the setupenu. Wish it was that simple.
Anyway the only way I can make it useable is to turn do the volume on the TV and turn up the RCA surround sound. Not the greatest but will have to do for now.
Thanks ALL

Tomorrow we shoulod hit the Grand Tetons for 3 days then on the Yellowstone for 5 nights.

I have finally found a reasonable balance betwwen the RCA surround sound system and the Toshiba TV
TV level is 10 and RCA is 30.
I think this setup is a bunch of $#$%

Sounds like you found the balance that works the best as can be expected. I also found that when listening to the tv thru the RCA system ensure you have the RCA unit set to "stereo" and not the "5.1" setting. This helps eliminate the echo effect. Right now she is watching a cupcake show in High Definition on the Food Network and the tv/system sound fine.

Lostdog I just switched off 5.1 and changed to stereo.
It works much much better and no echo.
Thank you very much and hope others with similiar issue now have a solution.
Thanks

Problem Solved

Problem SOLVED
I was unable to stop the echo sound from both TV and surround sound system. I was unable to turn off the speakers in the TV software so I did it the HERK way.

I Installed a double pole double throw switch and installed in the back of the TV set. I broke one wire from each of the two speakers and ran it thru the switch. Speakers all ON or all OFF in the TV.

Now if I use the surround sound I just turn off the TV speakers and no more echo adjusting.

For me this problem is SOLVED.
