SOLVED - Toshiba 40" and RCA Surround Sound problem

I have a 2012 378TS with a 40" Toshiba flat scrren in the main area. It is hooked up to a cheap RCA surround sound system.
Whenever I turn on the surround sound using the AUX in as setup by FR I get sound but unable to shut off the TV speakers so all I get is a echo from the TV speakers and Surround sound.
Called Toshiba and they said FR modified the back of the TV with the 2 RCA jacks that go analog to the RCA surround sound systems.

Well what I'm asking if any of the 2012 378TS owners have the same problem or an I doing something wrong. Please help as I'm on the road now.
Thanks

Try muting the TV speakers or turn down the TV volume on them.

I find the same problem on our 2011 378. If I turn down the tv sound the surround sound goes down too, but you can then turn up the surround volume and it balances out pretty well. As I recall, it you mute the tv, the surround mutes too.

Exactly correct. Just turn down the tv volumn and turn up the RCA volumn. Work at it and you will find the correct balance. Doesn't seem to be "logical" but you have to work with what you have.

On my 2011 360 we just shut off the RCA system and use the TV speakers. Wierd that they are wired differently.

Did that but it also mutes and turns down the sound level to the surround sound system.

I will try that again but I think I was still getting the echo effect.

YES IT DOES

That is the way we are using now but the volumn must be at 100% and we can barely hear it. I have read around that this TV has bad sound and volume.

Iggy - You've probably already tried this, but on our tv (it's an LG, but the concept is the same), we have to go into the setup screens and mute the tv speakers there - it's buried several screens down and a real pain to so - so that we don't get backfeed when we use our surround sound.
