The wiring to my outside TV is composite (3 wire VCR vintage technology). My TV, Jensen JE3214, only has capability for one composite (or component) connection. There are 2 HDMI ports but no HDMI cable run to outside. The trade off then is satellite or outside DVD player, not both. I am currently leaning toward OTA + sat vs OTA + DVD. I added a 3 to 1 switch so I can also use the dash DVD player outside. Sat and dash DVD wiring is input to switch. Outside radio/CD/DVD player becomes radio/CD player only.

Your choices may be different if you have kids or HDMI cable run throughout…or yo have a different TV.

Our 2015 FK had analog RCA-type cables going to the two main room tv's and the bedroom tv. The outside tv was connected only to the dvd / radio that is part of the outside entertainment center.

I went with a wireless HDMI solution which sends the satellite or blu-ray signal to all of the TV's simultaneously.

I believe the 2016's have HDMI connections throughout.

Thank you for the reply. The "wireless" HDMI actually sounds like an upgrade better than the 2016 factory install we have.

Actually that sounds like a great upgrade.

I was skeptical at first and bought iogear's "wireless HD video kit" which, at around $200, broadcasts the a wireless signal to one additional TV (in addition to the one the transmitter is connected to).

It worked really well so I went ahead and bought their "long range wireless 5x2 hdmi matrix pro" which supports up to 5 simultaneous TVs and allows two different sources at once (one at the transmitter TV, and another source to the remote TVs). Spent about $800 on that which wasn't cheap but sure beats stringing HDMI cables across the coach!

tv's in seneca

my 2015 Seneca had all kinds of problems. first the coach is supposed to have 2 sat conn over the cab and 1 in the bedroom. found jayco only wired 1 in the cab area. also found the outside tv had no video cable plugged to tv. both these problems I was able to resolve myself. biggest problem I see is some idiot at jayco put 4 hd TV's in the coach then sold you the optional hd dish and wired them to work on av cables!!! wasn't that smart.
I bought a rockfish wireless hdmi transmitter so I have hd on the cab over tv and the main tv it works great but cost me $200 at best buy. I sent letter to jayco but they never replied except jayco has now wired all 4 TV's with hdmi on the 2016 models, guess they fired the idiot. oh the outside tv works on the sat but receiver must be changed to 480. a jayco rep told me they had a lot of wiring problems and he sent me their wiring diagram for the whole coach which was very helpful.
