It seems the experts are chiming in here so maybe someone has a solution to my problems which is along the same lines but a little different.

It`s actually 2 different issues:
1) I won`t post the entire history unless someone wants it but the short version is when I plug in the 32inch Toshiba`s audio out jacks into the Concertone`s in jacks I get a beating or thumping type of feedback through all the speakers in the coach. I was told by Forest River that some type of a Noise filter is supposed to ship with those Toshiba`s and because mine was an upgrade after the purchase that the filter has not been installed and they are sending me one. Anyone know anything about this...
2) This is the stumper: I have had video problems from day 1 (over a year), with my system, first on the smaller 26inch Olivia with a constant horizontal set of lines in the upper right corner. FR sent a replacement ZX700 which fixed nothing, they had me check cabling, input voltages, and all sorts of other stuff, then they figured it must have been the TV so they sent a 32 Toshiba which was great but led to the problem above and actually made the video issue worse - basically unwatchable. Now the issue is that the entire picture shifts up and to the right and then back to original position, about once a second. They shipped a 3rd ZX700 and nothing changed. I should mention that the video issue is only when watching a DVD from the Concertone. And I`m definitely not here to bash, in fact I love everything about my trailer except for this TV and Concertone compatibility problem but I`m determined to figure it out perhaps with the help of some of you guys. Any help here would be appreciated.

How can the ZX700 effect TV? It can't. Is is just a sound system.
I just think both TV were/are bad.
One way to check is just hook up the tv direct to the antenna with no external speakers just the ones on the TV. This step will 1st verify the TV is good.

The ZX700 is a DVD player as well... I`ve hooked up the TV to antenna with just the TV speakers and no issue. I`ve also hooked a portable DVD up to the Toshiba and again no issue. As well, I installed my 32 inch Samsung and both issues disappear. This is why I`m suggesting a compatibility problem, but if no one else has had the issue, then something else must be going on here.

Thanks for such a quick response by the way..

Marv,

Check the menu setting for video. Mine came from the factory set for PAL not NTSC.

For USA and Canada it MUST be NTSC.

I had similar issues with vidoe and that fixed it.

Audio is a different problem, but I would also look at the audio menus for a solution.

Marv,
I stand corrected that it is a DVD player for video out.
The original issue was strickly TV audio input not making it to the speakers.

Miy ZX700 does have a noise filter installed in the audio out line. Not sure if it does anything but it did ship with the unit. Not sure if you have had the ZX700 out of the wall yet, but that is where I found my filter.

Thanks for the suggestion but it didn't help. The video setting was auto so I switched it to NTSC - same symptoms.....

Thanks for the info, I've indeed had my ZX700 out of the wall, twice actually as I'm on the 3rd one trying to fix this issue. There is no such filter on the audio out line.
Do you have the same combo of 32inch Toshiba and ZX700? If so how is the picture quality of DVD movies in general?

Thanks,

Marv
