What Jensen do you have? If it's the one I had (AWM975), it has an HDMI output that will carry audio signal to the TV. I had a swivel TV and played audio through only the TV pretty much all the time. It also had an input for a remote sensor. I bought the remote sensor eye and mounted it below the TV so that the Jensen DVD remote would work from whichever way the TV was facing.

There should be an audio out that goes from the headunit to the TV, just like a regular DVD player. You will need to run that in order to watch a DVD in the bedroom with the TV swiveled around.

There is probably some yellow and red connections that can be made as well, TV out to Stereo in. I will explore those options as well. It seems simple enough...but nothing ever is with TT.
Had the same situation in our last camper. Actually a pretty easy fix for this (while I am a bit of an audiophile, it is still a pretty easy fix.) On the back of your TV you should have a couple of L (white) and R (red) connections labeled audio out. There will probably also be a video (yellow) out along with this (no need to do anything with this.) You will need a set of standard RCA cables to run from the back of the TV to an open input (assuming you have one, I had several) on the back of the stereo/DVD unit. You will need to remove the stereo/DVD from the wall, which typically involves removing the face plate and probably 4-6 screws then pulling it out from the enclosure. Figure out which input port you are plugging it into and then when you want to watch TV and listen to it through the Stereo via surround sound, you should just be able to turn it to that input.

Myself I wouldn't go the 1/4 jack route is it in not necessarily visually appealing, but I like to make sure that all of my wires are as hidden as possible which is a little trait I learned during my car audio/security hobby time of life. Hope this helps!

What is the model number of your Jensen unit?

what are exact outputs from your Jenson head unit? According to this instalation manual there are fixed line level RCA audio output (page 4 upper left corner).
http://www.jensenrvdirect.com/downlo...ers_manual.pdf

I know that our Jensen unit does line level output to the TV over the RCA composite connection. Our TV has sound with DVD and can be used alone (turn all three speakers zones off, still get sound through TV.)

I think your problem is either an incorrect cable, or something is actually wrong with your unit.

Here is a picture of a different model with the red, yellow and white RCA composite cables in the wire bundle.
