To the OP. What kind of cables are connecting the DVD player to the TV. I have a 16 Melbourne with the same brand tv. The cables from the head unit and the tv are RCA type maybe component. Need to dig out the manual from the head unit to see if it has HDMI output.

My DV1200 just lost the lcd display. Everything still works just no display which now I have no way to set stuff up. I called Furrion direct. They asked for my FW vin and r sending me one to my house for swap out. Leaving end of May for two dry camping and need the unit to work. There customer service was great.

My Furrion works great! The 'air' scam picked up 16 channels which I was pleased with. The picture is pretty good IMO. The DV1200 works fine also. Both speaker zones work fine, the blu tooth feature was working as well. The only thing I haven't tried is the DVD. I forgot to bring one. I'm hoping it'll be fine.

Hey Rock, how long have you had it before it crapped out on you? It's good to hear Furrion is stepping up and doing the right thing w/o a hassle.

Got my FW in Nov but the dealer had it over three months. Probably has about 30 hrs of on time. The customer service girl said that was the first LCD display that went bad that she has dealt with. She was going to see if any others have dealt with that problem. On my mountain property where I dry camp there is no tv reception or cell service. Water comes from the river and I installed septic. Evenings run generator to charge batteries and will watch a DVD I have a dish satellite but reception is hard with all the trees. That is why the TV and DVR must work. My TT had a Jenson system and no problems with it at all. This will be first time with my FW.
Rock.

Maybe I should have read this forum a day sooner...

So...I just ordered the Furrion DV1200 from Camping World ($279) for my 2013 Pinnacle 36REQS. I bought my 5'er used and the entertainment system it came with Estone EX8500 DVD, which is pretty cheap, underpowered, and doesn't have any of the newer features I wanted (e.g. HDMI, bluetooth, front A/V, etc.). I looked all over the Internet and this model was the only one that had three speaker zones, separate subwoofer output, and all the latest technologies (minus the mobile app support but really...do I want to be messing around with a phone when I'm supposed to be camping?!)

Based upon all the feedback on this thread, maybe I made the wrong decision here? Its ordered and shipped so I'll let ya'll know how it turns out after I install it in a couple weeks. (I'm also installing a separate subwoofer too!)

Happy trails...

Not to burst your bubble, but that would be the last unit I would buy. The only reason I have one is because it's already there.

The Bluetooth is kind of handy though for music. Making Bluetooth phone calls is sort of a novelty though.

Do you want an easy upgrade to the Furrion in your Jayco

Hi Fellow Jayco Owners
If your Furrion receiver isn't broken and you want an upgrade and a few fixes for the Furrion DVR1200 read on.

I have a 2016 Northpoint 341RLTS and agree the base sound system is not for an audiofile but it can upgraded with a couple of additions. 1) The DV1200 has a "Sub Out" RCA jack on the back of the unit and if you are like me you likely will have 120V to your RV whenever you are dry camping or in a park. Buy a home subwoofer such as a Klipsch, Polk or JBL with around 200 watts and plug it into 120V and plug the other end of the RCA cable to the LFE on the sub. I found a near new Klipsch SW-10 on Craigslist for $140.00 and wow did it improve the overall music and movie experience. You won't be disappointed. 2) There is another connector on the back of the receiver for an optical cable. Walmart has one for $25.00 12 ft in length. Plug it into the receiver and then run it to a "NEW" Samsung 48"1080P TV instead of the Furrion TV it comes with. $399.00 at Costco. 3) Add a Samsung Blu Ray disc player (Bestbuy for $70.00) and run a HDMI cable (one was provided with the the receiver and FurrionTV) from the Blu Ray player to the new Samsung TV. Much improved over the DVD player in the DV1200.
Bam!

Fergy, does that 48" Samsung fit into the hole?

It fits but has a tendency to rub a little.. I'd rather deal with a little rubbing than deal with the lack of decent speaker output from the Furrion TV. I'll have one on my carpenters pull the trim cap off shave some of the material and reinstall the trim.
If my 5er didn't come with the DV1200 I would have purchased a small Denon home receiver (110v) for under $200 , reworked the panel in the cabinet and connected the outside speakers to Zone B of Denon and not utilized the speakers in the bedroom. We have a Bose system for that. Probably do the Denon down the road someday when the DV1200 fails. I will already have the sub and a good TV.
It's amazing what the addition of the subwoofer did to the sound of the DV1200
