never assume anything with FR, my Aviator comes with a sony 1000 5.1 surround sound that does not play thru the TV, had to add an optical audio cable. In my 2013 36 ckts it did play thru the TV but I did not have the sound bar, mine was an early build 2013

Look on the back of the TV to see if you have an audio out.

If so make sure the soundbar is plugged in to it. Or if it is new enough maybe it has an HDMI OUT as well as an HDMI in on the sound bar.

What TV and Soundbar do you have?

My 13 Cedar Creek didn't work right either so, I dismantled the tv and found the wiring screwed up. They are assembled by the amish. What could possibly go wrong with the electronics...

You have to turn the speakers on the television off. Go in to the TV audio settings. Then turn on the sound bar (Vizio I would guess) and change the source to the television, because the sound bar may be set to play the radio. Should work then. That is what I did to make it work on my 34 RLSA.

Ill have to inspect the connections.....I tryed the tv thing but sound bar was grayed out and not selectable. Probably the way its connected. We going to camper for the weekend later today...ill double check the tv and plugs. If it works on others it should work on ours.

All the connections look correct. The vizio sound bar plug in loose in the single pin connection...I can jiggle it and it just hums....no sound. It does not work with the radio anymore either. I guess the sound bar went bad. The sub and bar simply hum.....the hdmi goes to dvd player.....I tryed to send pic but it says its crashing.
