Hi, first post; does anyone know if you can use the surrond sound feature when using the TV just off the antenna? Seems a waist if it only works when viewing a DVD etc.

Have a 2012 36 RE Black & Tan.

Thanks!

Yes, buy a 4 or 6 foot optical cable to connect the TV to the DVD. Check the connectors on the TV and DVD first to ensure you buy the right male connectors. Fish it through the hole in the back of the TV cabinet upto the optical in of the DVD. Tune the DVD to AUX OPT - you now have surround sound with the TV!Edited by: Adamsvr

Before you
go and buy the cable you might want to check my 2012 36RE had the optical cable. On
your receiver put it on optical and turn the vol up on receiver and down on TV. What ever audio is on the TV will go thru the sound system.Now if the
audio is not encoded for surround sound you will only get stereo </span>but it will go thru the system.</span><?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

Adamsvr is correct. If you look on the remote for the DVD player it should have an "optical" button. If it does, and you have an optical cable connecting the television and DVD player all you have to do is hit the "optical" button on remote to play the audio through your surround sound speakers. You may have to turn the television volume to zero to avoid getting an echo effect.

If you have the RCA unit, there is a Tone Test that can be done, we have some speakers that are miswired. Like Left Front and Left Rear Surround wires swapped.

Just to be clear, our 36RL has a Toshiba TV and a LG DVD. Don't know what you have? Good luck.
