This is hard one to write an answer but I will try and remember.

The TV output is already set in the back with wires to surround sound system.

The surround sound system has to be changed via remote to AV2 input I think. Try to change all the inputs to see which one but 2 seems to stick in my mind.

Now you have to make sure in the TV menu it is set to something other than Dolby. Sounds weird but the TV output has to be chanded to compress or a 3rd one I can remember what it said.

At least this will get you to play with it and find the answer.
Also my 40" Toshiba I was unable to shut off the actual TV speakers in the software. I decided to install a switch in the back of the TV to shut them off when using surround sound.
If you don't all you get ia delay echo which is weird.

The reason this happens is the cheap RCA surround sound is analog input and the TV had to be modified to get analog output to work.
Look behind your TV and you will find a box attached that takes 2 RCR jack from below the regular outputs. This is the Forest River mod and answer.

I may just buy a new surround sound with DVI input and add a long cable.

Here is the picture of the box behind the TV I mentioned. See where it is hooked up to the TV below the other outputs.

Oh well.....

Thanks for the help. We will definetely have to unmount the TV to see. This makes sense, and I think you are correct. AV2 was what I was thinking we needed to be on but we didn't want to muck around with unmounting the TV unless we had to. Unfortunately neither of us can reach that far back unless we do, so we won't know if the cables are correct until we do! Wish us luck! And thanks again!
