Rockwood Surround Sound Issue

Anyone have an answer to this issue. We have a 2015 Rockwood 5th. The only way I can use the TV sound through the surround sound option on the radio is to have the TV volume on, and at a pretty high volume. If the TV volume is not on I get nothing out of the surround sound option. Am I missing something. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try this thread. " Help With iRV 66 and Satellite" and my response using the OIS cable. It made a world of difference in my case. If you leave a little TV volume it will sound like a reverb unit

There is a cheap Jenson radio/DVD/surround sound system installed on my TT. There are multiple external inputs on it. My tv input is on AU2 (not AV2). To use the radio for surround sound I need to scroll through the inputs until I to AU2. All volumn control is through the radio and the TV volumn is turned to zero. If you have the Jenson system, you need to scroll through the inputs until you find the one your tv is contected to.

Sorry Guy's, I should have listed the system that we have, it is a IRV Technologic System. It used to be Jensen. I don't think this is much of an improvement. Thanks for your replies so far.

Is there a model name or number?

It sounds like your radio and TV are connected using the old style av cables (red, white, and yellow RCA connectors) instead of an HDMI cable. That setup would use the TV volume control. Posting the model number / model name is the only way anyone could possibly help you further.

On the iRVtechnologies - press the "source" button (src, I think) and pick "TV AUDIO", that works for us when we want to hear it outside (#3 speaker) - It will probably work on the #1 or #2 speakers also. In our old camper stereo unit, you would turn the TV down all the way and use the volumn button on the stereo stystem - this one does not do that.

Any suggestion? OK, here goes: Get a manual and read it. (Hey, you said "any suggestion...")

The radio volume must also be increased.
