Re: RCA RTD215 surround sound

I just leave mine turned on. Otherwise, I have to unplug it, and then plug it back. As far as connecting it to the TV, mine goes to the DVD-VCR, then into the HTS aux.

Re: RCA RTD215 surround sound

I think it is too late to take mine back to Wal-mart and I have everything setup (hidden wires and all that) If I play a DVD, better get it the way I want in the first 15 minutes cause after that, the remote stops responding, PERIOD. Turn off and back on manually. Wished I would have played a DVD a lot sooner than after 90 days. I can't even figure out how to get it to work with the TV. I do love the way I can hook up my I-POD to it and the surround sound works great.

I did contact RCA (whoever) support and they said they sold out the contract for support and to call some other number. GREAT!!!

Re: RCA RTD215 surround sound

I could only get surround sound for DVD, NOT cable/TV--regular audio jacks only give stereo for cable/tv, NOT surround sound. Very disappointing. Any thoughts/solutions for how to get surround sound? Cable box has digital output, but no input on the rtd 315, any help available? THX

Looks like the remote is faulty, a replacement remote may fix it.

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...

This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

I Need the five digit remote code for a RCA RTD215 DVD player to program into a universal remote

What is the make and model of the universal remote? They each have their own sets of codes, so there's not a code for your DVD that works with all universal remotes.

Post back the make and model info using the "add comment" button, and I'll do my best to look up RCA DVD player codes for it.

I've bought a panasonic sound surround dvd player and want to link it to a sky+ box and tv so that sky will play in sound surround. Can you advise on the wiring configuration please?

look at the back of your tv does it have a audio out RCA jack?
it should do plug in the surround sound into that using RCA cables

if your tv does not have audio out RCA jack then you can

get a adapter which makes scart connectors turn into RCA jacks get that off ebay

plug the yellow line to the tv and connect the red and white to suround sound
but with this there are a few problems sound will only come out when surround sound is turned on and skys sound will never play out the tv
if you switch to a PS3 or something it will not play suround sound

yuo best option is the RCA plugs in the back of the tv

because you have not written the model number of the tv or the suround sound i cant help any further

Surround sound does not come through my tv. Just

If your DVD player is a home theater system then the sound would come through the HT system, not the TV. On your TV you should have an 'AUDIO OUT' jack, plug that into your HT system where it has the 'AUDIO IN' or "AUX" AUDIO IN. Then when you are watching TV, just set your HT system to AUX mode or AUDIO mode.
Hope that helps.
