RCA RTD217 5disc DVD home theater used to go to volume 40, but now only to 31. I had similar problems w/ another RCA 5.1 surr sound system and they sent this one to replace it. The old one eventually produced almost no sound. The remedy for the old one when it started to fail was to unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Then after that quit working, unplug it as well as all of the speaker wires from the unit overnight. I've tried both with this unit, and can still only get a 31 level. Praise the Lord it's still at 31, but if I could get 40 that'd be better as sometimes 31 can be hard to hear. Thanks for any advice you might have beyond what I've tried

Gotta find an audio output from the TV and run it to aux input on the home theatre, select the aux function and it should work, if your tv has no audio out see if it has a headphone jack you can use as an audio out, can get a cable with 3.5mm headphone jack one 1 end and rCA red/white on the other, becareful when doin this as the audio output level froma headphone jack maybe controlled by the tV's volume itself. keep tV volume low and use the home theatre volume if your doing it that way
Ensure that you have an audio connection to your LG theater system from the TV, that is labeled as "audio out" or similar to "variable out" to an audio input on the LG system. You may use a pair of RCA type cables or sometimes known as composite audio cables. Then on the LG system, select the input to use that you connected your audio cables from the TV into. Disable the TV speakers. Decrease volume on the LG system, then increase the volume on the TV all the way up. You now can use the LG system as the master volume for TV.
Unfortunately that is how this unit is designed, you cannot adjust the volume while inputting from an external source, normally the subwoofer would have an AUDIO control, but this one has no knobs, the VOL +/ VOL- on DVD remote only controls while watching a DVD. Only work around for this is if your TV has a 3.5MM headphone jack, you can get a 3.5mm to RCA cable and then your television would be able to control the volume.
HI,the rca system should have a sub pre out socket,plug a phono cable into this then to input on your sub and set volume to half way,also make sure the sub is set to on in the setup menu on the system.
Hope this helps.
Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
