Then there is the MESS in the compartment below the TV. I'm still trying to sort THAT out. Hopefully when I do find it (using a signal tracer I guess) the 12V power to supply the antenna will be there too (on the roof).
Then the COAX that feeds the bedroom television comes from God-knows-where. They ran a COMPOSITE cable from the compartment below the main TV back to the bedrooom TV. Guess what??
My bedroom television has no composite input jacks. It has (only) COMPONENT or HDMI inputs, but FR put no cables in the wall for those types of signals. What can FR be thinking?? COMPOSITE has been pretty much obsolete for almost 5 years.
They put this stupid box in the compartment with a plethora of buttons on it to manage all the possible distribution options. I have one of these $1000 ULTRA configurable universal remotes (Phillips Pronto and yes, that price is NOT a typo) so I'm not used to jumping up to change anything.
My Dish Network reciever (VIP722K) has a COAX output video signal from the second tuner to feed a second TV. But I can't figure out which COAX goes back to the bedroom TV; Sheesh!!!
Now don't get me wrong... I'm real happy wiith my Berky, but FR really dropped the ball on entertainment sysem wiring, IMHO. At the VERY least they could have supplied a "blueprint" with all the vehicle's paperwork as well as color coding EVERYTHING!!
Are we having fun yet?? 8-)
