Who at Forrest River do I contact to get another IRV 66 technologies DVD. The speakers keep cutting in and out and I cannot get a Forrest River dealer to set up time to replace it until late June, in which case I will be out of warranty. I will be happy to replace it myself and return the defective unit. I just need to know who to contact.

Try this thread. It has a contact sheet for both warranty and parts.

You can call Todd Eash at Patrick Industry(574-970-8287) and they will send you a replacement free of charge, but you must return the old unit. Not hard to replace. Got mine in about 3 days. Later RJD

Contact Todd Eash at Patrick Industries (just search forum posts for his name for contact details, or I can find later), as the audio cutting out is a known issuesand they'll send you a replacement unit.

I had to go thru my dealer. I'm on my third IRV66 and it seems fine.

I finally got mine mostly straightened out last night. I had to pull the unit and connect everything up correctly. The RCA plugs for the TV were in the output jacks and needed to be moved to the input jacks. The A and B speakers were of course wired wrong. It was bad enough that I had to rewire but any wire that was not used during installation had been cut short which made it tougher to properly connect the correct wires.

If you have a TV with an optical output I'd thoroughly recommend ditching the RCA plugs, and instead running a TOSlink optical cable from the TV to the back of the unit. That way you can have Dolby 5.1 from any TV channels that broadcast it, and at least digital stereo for the rest.
(Just select the digital input for audio, I think they label it as 'DOT/DCC' on the screen iirc)

I ran a cheap optical cable ($6 from amazon) along the same path as the HDMI cable)

Alternatively if your TV support HDMI-ARC (audio return channel), and you connect the HDMI cable to the correct ports on both the TV and the iRV then you can just use the HDMI cable for digital audio (unfortunately my current TV doesn't support ARC)

Actually I posted that reply before your post had appeared.
I guess we were replying at the same time, or I'd left the page open in my browser for a while. Thanks for digging out the info tho
