TV sound does not feed through ceiling speakers

I have my wall-mounted TV working now (after getting the wall bracket mounted and the TV on it) but the sound does not come through the coach's ceiling speakers.

I have not tried playing a DVD through the DVD player to see if that works yet. I have tried using the remote to the DVD player to find the set up menu (which I think is necessary to program the TV installation) and can't get the set up menu on the DVD player to appear in order to do this.

I'm taking the trailer in for a couple of minor things and will ask about this, but thought I'd try getting the TV to work my self. The AM/FM radio works through the ceiling speakers but the TV does not. I have double checked the audio and video cables from the TV to the wall jacks. Maybe this is my problem.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

you would need to put the red/white cable into the Tv Audio out. Then the reverse into the trailer stereo, Red/white into the Aux in and it should work.

My trailer only worked in the ceiling speakers when playing a dvd, which is how it was wired from the factory.

Unfortunately you can't have it both ways without re-wiring

you could do it if your tv has a dedicated headphone jack. route it into your aux on the trailer stereo, and route all of your gaming systems and DVD players directly into the tv. tv will take care of the rest.

The sound plays through the speakers while watching a DVD that's played on the built in unit. If you want it to play through the speakers while watching regular tv you have to use the headphone jack on the radio and the audio out on your tv.

Headphone jack on tv to aux input on radio/DVD player. Works great for me!

You might go and check your set-up menu on your tv. Our Hemisphere is covered for winter now, but I believe to get the sound to come through the ceiling or outside speakers' I had to turn the tv speaker to "off" so that the sound is routed through the receiver......I have to go through it all and re-fresh my memory every season. :0/

Our speakers only work with the DVD player, we could never get regular tv to stream through the surround sound

Surround sound on tv?

I ran a connection out from the tv headphone to the DVD AUX input slot. Switch the radio/DVD function to AUX. You will have surround sound!

This was also true with our Sierra. The TV had line out jacks with wires connected to them and the stereo, but to get sound out of the jacks, the internal speakers had to be turned off. This was done in the TV menu under audio.

Our setup requires the TV audio out (red & white cables) to be routed to the audio or Aux in jacks in the stereo. Then to listen thru your ceiling speakers you have to change the stereo to Aux input. Turning down the TV volume might be desired also.
Hope this helps.
