Seneca TV & DVD

Ok we now have all our tv's in our Seneca up and working great, very clear picture on Dish. BUT, now when we try to watch a DVD we get great sound and volume but no picture. What an I missing?

Select the input on your TVs to the one that corresponds with your DVD player.

No DVD player, DVD's are played in the Seneca through the Clairon Radio system, so is the surround sound. We have already tried every setting available on tv and I think the radio too unless we are missing something on the road it self. Awesome sound, but not picture.

My normal satellite input on the tv is HDMI 1. I just switch inputs on the TV until I get a pic from the DVD in the clarion. You always get sound even if the TV is off. Through the coach speakers. I always turn the TV volume to 0 and use the Clarion so I have surround even on normal TV. I could ck and see what my inputs are to make it work if you like. Maybe you don't have a video input cable plugged in properly?

Dan the RV place put it in and got it working. My Seneca is parked our garage right now so it's hooked up to our dish like you hook up at the campground, so it's working through AV input. Tried every input with a DVD in, none of the work for picture, but sound coming from radio and house speakers is great. Just can't get a picture to come through. ? ? ?

Your satellite is hooked to a AV input and not a HDMI? So you don't get HD tv? I will check all my inputs tomorrow and report. Oh I have never hooked up to anything while camping, just my roof satellite, antenna or a DVD.

No, no, no!! The AV is one of the settings in the menu. Has TV, AV, HDMI 1, 2 and 3, Forget the next one and the last is Media. We have tried them all till no signal comes up. When hooked up at the campground to use their cable before we put in our Dish receiver we had to use the AV setting to pick up their channels. Same in our garage as the MH Dish antenna will not work inside. So he ran a cable and hooked up like at the campground. Only thing is we have to watch whatever channel the TV in his man cave is set on, can't change channels. LOL We do have the dish receiver turned on, not sure it even has to be on, and we're trying to get a DVD to play. Don't know why it shouldn't work as everything seems to be hooked. Dish gets all channels when we are parked outside.

It sounds as if the video cable is not connected to the clarion output.

It is. Went to back of dish receiver found it and tracked it to a connection box where everything is hooked up and goes into the TV. I'm thinking that since everything is run through the dish receiver and we are parked inside our garage, metal building, where the dish can't pick up signals and work properly that that is our problem. Will have to try it all when we go out this week. Outside the Dish was picking up great satellite programming. Clear as a bell. We just didn't think to check out the DVD before we parked it inside.

Well folks, I didn't know the radio would even play DVDs! So , today I tried it. The tv above the bed in front and the tv in the back bed room works.. I can't get the outside tv to work on the DVD player. Should it? I have a dish receiver on the front tv, that is the only tv I can watch with satellite. I bought a splicer, could not get them to play using that. Air antenna works all 3 tvs ok. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong on the dish sat. I really don't care if all 3 tvs play same channels on the sat.
