Allante/Vision/Precept Cat6 and HDBaseT?

Fellow Allante/Vision/Precept owners, I'm wondering if anyone has put to use the Cat6 cables that are run at the factory from the main TV to the bedroom and outside TV?


Initally I was unaware of them, however I requested a satellite mounting diagram and with it I received a wiring diagram for the TV/Satellite system. Upon review I was able to determine that there are (in my 31V) two cat6 cables running from the living room TV area to the bedroom and outside TV areas. This seems like a perfect setup for HDBaseT to send my dish signal (and/or others) from my main receiver to the other TVs.


Has anyone done this or explored these cables/options? Were you aware they existed? I was able to remove my false wall where my coax amp is and found them right where they should be, so their existence is confirmed in my coach.

My 2016 precept uses the cat6 cables for sending hdmi signals from the connex box to the TV's. The connex is connected to the blue ray player via HDMI cable. At each tv there is an cat6/HDMI adapter. That was my standard set up. Sometimes we unplug the blue ray HDMI cable and use a firestick for streaming at the connex input.

Hawkster, I thought that may be the case on the Precepts, but wasn't sure. Good to know. I think for manufacturing consistency, they ran the cables for the Allante/Vision, but did not include the box due to the price point/options.



Can you send me a picture of this connex box (both ends) and the model number if possible? I'm looking at other solutions, but if the OEM solution is available, i'd like to explore it while i'm at it.


In my setup, I just want to be able to watch my Dish in the bedroom and outside, so I was looking at an HDBaseT extender and an HDMI splitter, so I only need to use one of the cat6. This leaves the second cat 6 available for me to use for networking if desired. In the 31V, the bedroom and outside TVs are literally back to back.

My 2018 Alante 26x came with a Blue-Ray player and the Connex HDMI 4 x 4 Matrix with POC (stated on the label). My Alante is in the same price point as your Vision but included the Connex Box. The model number appears to be R014MTXC5E44RPC, but believe it is OEM as the front selectors/indicators state main/bedroom/exterior/supplemental (not a standard labeling for a house). My av wiring diagram is very similar to your except I have CAT6 at all 3 TV locations (main, exterior & bedroom).

The Connex box I have has 4 HDMI inputs and 4 CAT6 outputs. I can select on the front which input goes to which TV. It can be the same or a mix, like send input #1 to 2 TV's and input #3 to another. Currently using the blue-ray that came with the rv on input A, added a chromecast on input B and an xbox on input C (for the kids ).

I currently have my Connex box out as I an putting shelving in the AV cabinet and cleaning up the wiring, attached are some pictures. Also attached is the CAT6 to HDMI adapters used at the main & exterior TV's. The bedroom tv has the wall plate converter mounted on the wall, it has the coax connection and a standard hdmi connection in one (can get a pic tomorrow if ya need).

Thanks a lot Balibe. Iím unable to find these for sale on the Internet, but based on your message iím beginning to wonder if my unit shouldíve come with this device. My wiring diagram shows the hdmi amp and itís wired as such, I just assumed they wired them the same for simplicity but that the hdmi splitter was for the precepts or above.

I guess I will be calling jay o motorized to determine if I shouldíve had one of these or not. Iím guessing theyíll say iím not supposed to, but I wouldnít mind if another vision owner chimed in here..

Thanks Balibe. I had the pics on phone and hadn't downsized for jayco site yet. My unit is the same as yours. I made one statement earlier that was incorrect. I just leave the blue ray and firestick plugged in since I have multiple inputs.

Thanks a lot you guys... I was able to track this down, but cannot find it for sale anywhere. My guess is they only wholesale, so I may call jayco and see if I can buy it from them.

Not the exact same unit, but the closest thing the manufacturer makes right now. Seems like the ones you guys have is RV specific and manufactured just for the industry, but finding them for sale is not proving to be easy.

I would think you should have had one when you bought the coach. On Entegra's website the standard items list shows a "video selector switch". I'd give them a call and ask. Mine is sitting in my Dad's basement in NC. I'd send it to you, but I'm in Oregon right now and won't be back east until December.

We plug our firestick into the aux port on the switch box and leave it there. We can then watch the firestick on all or any tv in the coach that we switch to aux.

I did some research, appears they are made by Tri-Net Technology. Connexx is a brand from Riverpark (riverparkinc.com). Riverpark is a national distributor of mobile audio products to the U.S. Recreational Vehicle Industry. They distributes major lines including but not limited to: Bose, Samsung, Sony, Harman Kardon, JBL, Pioneer and Xite Solutions North America. They are re-branding a Tri-Net product.

Tri-Net has the same model minus the ending numbers. The box looks identical, it does not have the main/bedroom/exterior labeling on the front. It also does not state to have POC (power over cable), POC supplies power from the box to the field converters.
