Seneca HJ HDMI TV Wiring

I have a 2015 Seneca HJ and a DISH vip211Z receiver. The receiver is set up for using HDMI or video/audio cables to the TV but no coax to the TV.
Has anyone run an HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV? If so, how did you get the TV out of the cabinet and run the HDMI cable to the receiver?
Another option I read about is using an RF modulator?

Another issue I'm having is with using the ceiling speakers for sound out of the TV. I have tried setting the radio to AUX 1 and 2 with no sound. Any suggestions?

Dale

Dale, hope someone jumps in here with a real answer. The entertainment cabinet front has wooden plugs that cover the front faceplate screws. This will then give you access to run the HDMI cable from the shelf where your receiver sits. You will then be able to see if audio out cables are hooked to the back of the TV that should run to the Jensen in the dash. I have not pulled my TV yet but have the same problem plus really can't hear the audio from the TV speakers threw the cabinet walls. I think that is why the 2016's have two holes cut in the face plate.. Let us know what you find.

We were told by Dish that we could only use the VIP211 in our Seneca. But they did not give a reason. Have our's hooked up with the coax cable, picture is great but we too are having speaker issues. When air is run we can hardly hear the tv sound even with it turned wide up.

2JayBirds, the 211K needs to be used because it has provision for composite video. Jayco went the cheap route with wiring - composite (3 wires) resulting in low def viewing. Component video (5 wires) would have been better and provided higher def. The 211Z is HDMI only.

On my class A I used a HDMI to component video converter for a 211Z and Dish prevented me from viewing some channels.

Well our VP211 is a clear as a bell hooked up with the better coax cable. Really don't think it could get any better.

Air Conditioning in the confined areas of RV's can really cause the blower to almost control conversations and the noise level. You might want to try a "Serene Portable Bluetooth Speaker". Originally got one for Father in law, who is hard of hearing, and now we have got a number of them for use around the house and RV. I guess we are unwilling to admit our hearing may be going, also.

Dish themselves told me the VP211 was all I could use in the Seneca. It's hooked up getting all the same channels I can get in my home, picture is very clear just as it is in the house and now that we have the radio set on Aux2 the sound is also working loud and clear too. No other changes or additions have been made.

Seneca HDMI

Having a problem getting our TV's hooked up to our dish antenna. We have a Seneca 36 FK and I cannot find wires coming from the dish antenna. I know I need receivers but do not know where cables from the antenna are run to. I took the trim piece off of the cabinet around the TV but the TV is mounted so tight to the wall I can't determine what wires are going into the back of it. Appears there are two three conductor cords plugged in but impossible to tell without uninstalling the TV. Anyone have any ideas?
THANKS
