well, guess what folks. Quite a few of you were right. I pulled my Genesis unit off the wall and found that the HDMI cable was NOT plugged in to the output connection on the back of the unit. The cable was balled up in the back of the cabinet like it had never been connected. Chalk up another one for quality control. Anyway, I plugged it in and can now play movies on the tv, surround sound and all. Now I can move on to my list of "other things" that need fixing or correcting on our brand new unit.

Yup. Good quality control. It makes you wonder just exactly the employee was doing when your TT went by the line. For sure the QC person pencil whipped the inspection and poof, Hey...this one's done.

Never really noticed a problem with my AM/FM reception. The TT actually picks up a little better than the one in my truck. (Probably due to the antenna being higher off the ground.)

In theory, if you wanted to boost it, you could get a Motorola to F connector, and then hook up the radio to the trailer's TV antenna. This should theoretically use the winegard's boost to also boost received FM signals.

Caveat: This is all in theory, I haven't actually tried this myself.

There is an old thread on here on how to hook it to your TV antenna....People who have done it swear by it..

MartyQ, after what I found with ours I would check to make sure the ant cable is even plugged in to your receiver. I couldn't believe the ball of wiring mess I found behind ours. Its amazing anything worked at all. Good luck

Yeah I found no sound due to the cables not being plugged in when I picked up the unit last year. QC is not a Forest River concern, Seems they leave it to the end customer to finalize the QC.
My biggest gripe is that I cannot get MP4's to play. Even on the 8gb card.

ya. I am finding so many things that have to be fixed with our brand new unit. Its very upsetting and discouraging. The lack of QC or just plain lousy work is unreal.

The plan is not QC at the plant it expected at the dealer. But the dealer wants your hard earned money and could care less about QC. Flagstaff is not the only one out there who just wants profit margins. There are many many more. The American business is all about money in their pockets and out of yours. Interesting enough we still buy their product regardless and they know it. However everything we buy these days needs to be tweaked. Buy a new house and you get a punch list and so on. Campers are for the handy folks who can fix just about anything.
