Ok, as far as the HDMI sending it out, that is already what is connected to my stock television, right? I don't need to run a second HDMI out to my TV, do I?

so right now you probably only have one HDMI out and that is from the built in DVD player. adding the second HDMI IN will only make the IRV66 receive a second signal in which you have to choose to send out to the TV.

Will the HDMI cable that is coming from the DVD player be shared with the output from the satellite, or will I have to run a second HDMI cable out to, say, the HDMI 2 port on the TV? Can the one HDMI cable be switched from within the iRV 66 to serve both the DVD and output from the satellite?

If I'm not mistaken one HDMI out to the TV should suffice. You will just have to select on the IRV66 what output you want.


...and actually when you are playing a dvd you will select DVD on the IRV66 and when toggling to HDMI you will pick which HDMI out. I don't have the unit in front of me right now but I believe it has two HDMI selections.

Thank you so much, Paul. I will pull the unit out this weekend and give it a try.

I had some issues with the IRV66 and toshiba TV with a hum/ buzz on the TV AUDIO selector on the SRC. Once I installed an OIS cable between the two units, the SRC button is now set at OIC/OCC works great but, you need to turn the TV volume down or mute. The OIS cable is a 6' cable and cost about $6. That might be another solution

Good idea also jeff64. Having options is nice. So far my IRV66 has worked great. I believe the only problem I found from the factory was the DVD player's audio output. They had the HDMI cable from the IRV66 connected to HDMI#3 on the TV. If it is not connected to HDMI#1, my DVD player had no video/audio on the TV. I had DVD selected on the "SRC" button. It also didn't seem to matter which input the TV was on (HDMI 1,2,or3). Strange, but HDMI #1 on this TV (Furrion=factory model) seems to be the master channel that the TV will automatically switch to when it senses an input there. I guess that is common on other TVs.
The only other thing I have noticed so far on the IRV66 is that the built-in frequency response filter settings (Rock, POP, Movie, Concert, etc.) REALLY affect the sound output volume and quality. You can get some pretty good quality sound by playing with this and the Bass/Trebal settings. One feature I don't like is that all 3 speaker zones come on when turning it on. Was hoping that Zone 1 is default (Living room) and you had to manually select zone 2 or 3 if you wanted to. That would have made more sense to me. Turning off the outside speakers (zone 3) and the bedroom (zone 2) every time will get old.

Today, a tech for the iRV 66 named Nelson called me and confirmed that it is as simple as Paul has stated. All I have to do is run an HDMI from my satellite receiver to one of the HDMI in ports on the back of the iRV 66 and the signal will be switched to share the single HDMI cable that now connects the iRV 66/DVD player to the back of my TV.

Thanks a lot, Paul.

Beware! IRV 66

I read all the Nice reviews of Todd Eash and Patrick Industries and how easily things were replaced. Let me say, that is not my experience. We have had our unit for 2 years with it randomly cutting out from the start. I never thought it was an issue, as I figured bluetooth was the culprit, not to mention the camper isn't used daily, that is until I logged in here.
It turns out this defect is borderline a recall issue and should have been a recall. It hasn't been due to the intermittent issue of it at the start. I was hoping to send mine in and receive a replacement, even a used unit that was repaired, but I received the standard "sorry out of warranty" response. It is truly unfortunate but it looks like I will follow the advice of other users and simply put in a car stereo, as paying $500 for another POS from Todd just isn't my idea of customer service!
