There are a lot of wires on the back of the unit. Like 4 video out male plugs and literally about 20 others (red, white, and yellows everywhere). I hooked it up the same way the factory had it hooked up but with that many options back there it increases the likelyhood for human error. Though that said, I did try every other conceivable combination with new wires to no avail.

One other possibility is you may have a bad video out cable that feeds your TV from the ZX. Maybe pickup a new 3ft or so video cable and just patch it in from the video out of the ZX to the video in on the TV to see if it helps.

Thanks. But yeah I tried that. I bypassed all the wirering behind the wall and took a new vid cable strait from the unit to the back of the tv. No help - still jumped all over the place. Seems... some units are fine and others are flawed. Unfortunately seems I got the flawed one (or two).

They just confirmed they are sending me a 3rd unit now. Would not confirm unit model number or make. Maybe they made a fix to the unit, or maybe they are sending a dif model, or maybe they are going to just keep sending me the same player over and over again till one works or I grow tired - which ever comes first.

Note though, I am really impressed with RV Wholesalers and Forest Rivers willingness and quick response times to work with me on fixing this and a few other minor issues I've had thus far. I have nothing but praise for both companies.

Make a tiny secret mark somewhere so you'll know if they send back the same unit...

I also bought my 5er from RVW but have not called them about the problem yet. Who did you talk to at RVW? Did they ask you to troubleshoot the problem with you or just agree to send you another one?

Hey Guys sorry I have been tied up - traveled back to MA to be with our kids during Thanksgiving. I definitely need to get me a MH to travel these miles - especially since we will become grandparents in March! I believe the Mrs. and the dog will be much happier!

I see a Concertone demo vehicle in my future, hopefully in time for the FROG get together! :-)

Sooo, I REALLY do not think anyone after replacing two or three units is going to find that changing it again is going to solve your problem. We recently tested several units with these complaints and found all measurements to be within specification and the units test fine on the Bench (with no visible issues).

I realize this is a conundrum, but we are trying to determine what is going on. This is why I asked what RV model this was happening with and even with that, I think we need to step back again and ask everyone who is experiencing this same problem to post up what YEAR/MAKE/MODEL RV you have. So even if you told me the model already please repost with the above.

Thanks
