Ah, so you have the Toshiba and not the Konka. Maybe Bob Fields will drift by this thread and talk more about the GT 3.
The GT 3 info is great, but I feel the info about what is hooked up to what in different ways among our trailers' tvs and multi-input-output wall plates and speakers could be more user friendly.
On my particular setup pictured in my previous message, here is what I think is happening...
The gray coax may be from the Winegard antenna wall plate. It carries the tv signal input from the Winegard amped antenna to the television. It's plugged into the televion's antenna input
. The television input menu must be set to tv to receive/display that signal. (It may also carry cable signal, if I set my Wingard wall plate to that, but that and satelite are different ball games)
The combo av plug is connected to an av output
(not input) on the television. It splits into the red, white, yellow plugs that go to the GT 3. The red and white plugs are audio, yellow video not connected. I think this is carrying left/right audio from the television to the GT 3 on its AV1 input, so that antenna signal sound or other sound signals from the tv can be played through the ceiling or outside speakers hooked up to the GT 3. The yellow video out to the GT 3 would be irrelevant. So, this is signal output
from the television and input
to the GT3 at AV 1 (which is why my GT 3 must be mode set to AV 1 as opposed to AV 2 to play those sounds).
The HDMI is connected between the GT 3 and the television. On mine, I believe this is designed to carry audio and video signals from the GT 3 HDMI output to a television HDMI input (in my case the HDMI 1 plug, not HDMI 2 or 3). When I play a dvd in my GT 3, my HDMI cable is carrying audio and video signals as output
from the built-in dvd player to input
at the television. So, I must reset my television input from TV (signals coming in over the input coax) to HDMI 1 (where my HDMI cable is plugged in).
Sorry about this being so long. I'm partly guessing about this stuff, and trying to reason out why what is connected to what and why on my own system. Right now, mine is working.
