iRV Technologies system in Jayco

The wife and I bought a 245rlsw new last year. It has, I assume, the same DVD/entertainment center as many others. The iRV 32.
I don't expect much from these systems as I have had several other RVs over the years. But this is beyond crap IMO, specifically that it won't play Blue Ray DVD.
The trailer is 2020 model with 1991 technology for entertainment.
The Furrion television isn't the best, but I can live with it.

My question is; what are people replacing this iRV 32 with? There must be a better way to get DVD play, BT, AM/FM, etc. Please point me in the right direction.

Yep, crap
And there’s lot of comments on the internet on these. I just changed mine out under warranty but because of the hole size I had to put the same model back it.

What kind of problems are you having? Ours has been relatively fine.

I'll add to this, I believe mine is the IRV 35, my Bluetooth range doesn't even cover the whole camper! we cant stream music and walk to the front of the camper with the cell phone without it getting all crummy!

also, in my last camper that also had the same unit my clock would lose ~3 minutes a day so that clock was never right.

my unit in sig.

I have the IRV 36 and its a POS. Not that we watch them but doesnt have a DVD. You have to "mess" with it so it will figure out what speakers to use. Yes the bluetooth is very short distance.

I sidestepped the whole problem day one and purchased a small-ish blueray player on ebay. A used sony for like $35. Direct connected it, velcroed it to the space under the TV and went about life.

For the bluetooth problem....most likely your unit is running a downrev version of the technology. I have a couple of add on trans/rcv doodads that take optical and convert to bluetooth and they are operating at version 5.x and I have a pair of bluetooth headphones also operating at that level....I'm good to about 50 feet. If one of the devices, the sender or the rcvr is lower rev than the other, it sets the capability!

Technology is cool......when it works.

edit: I took a look and your iRV units are at rev 4.x. Take a look at this and it will explain why you're having the distance issues. Good rule of thumb is to cut the specified distance in half for a realistic actual useage. https://www.dignited.com/23114/bluet...0Bluetooth%204.

I agree. The 40” Furrion tv in my unit was garbage. It wasn’t even wifi capable. I replaced it with a 49” TCL Roku tv.

Hello,
I just recently joined this RV forum and I noticed your post about replacing your IRV-32 in your trailer. We have the same unit in our Jayco trailer and it's pretty pathetic and I've been thinking about replacing it as well.
Did you ever get an answer on your question about what to replace it with?

Thanks

Guys, check crutchfield out. I haven't replaced my iRV (yet), but it appears they do sell replacement multi zone radios for RVs.

A whole lot has been written about the crappy electronicsin RVs. Our TT came with a Jensen TV. It was junk. Out of curiosity, I priced a new Jensen from Crappy World and, to my disbelief, it was nearly $400.00 for a 30 inch stupid set.

Went to Beast Buy and got a smart Samsung for under $200.00.

Gotta wonder why RV manufacturers put inferior entertainment devices in their products?

It's cheap for them to put junk in their units and charge a premium for this amenities.

Paying $50 for a garbage TV compared to $150 for a Sony or LG saves them $100 per unit. Multiplied by tens of thousands of units, well, you do the math. Either way, they can say the rig comes with a TV.
