I did hookup the tv to irv with an optical cable and it works. So the only thing that is not working is the front HDMI.

iRV66

My wife got a hold of Todd last Thursday. New unit sent out Friday. Received and installed Tuesday. Works great! Thank you Todd!

I did notice that the replacement iRV66 display had the volume bar and spectrum analyzer displays twitching continuously, whereas the original one did respond properly to the audio input, albeit only at high volume.
I'm assuming that their (hack) fix for the audio cut-out, which was likely caused by a low input into the DSP in the first place, was to feed a fixed signal into the DSP control circuitry (or equivalent software hack), so that the DSP/equalizer now thinks that there is a constant audio source and doesn't switch off the pre-amp output.
I do wish they'd fixed it properly since the constantly twitching display is somewhat distracting

Heh. I don't want to watch it, that's the whole point. I'd rather it be off than jumping around pointlessly. I'm just easily distracted ;-)

I have a new 2016 Rockwood and I'm having irv troubles, the TV volume does not work and the setup switch does nothing. I'm not sure if it is even wired up correctly. Does anyone have a wiring diagram.?

You might be able to find it on line, I think that Crutchfield electronics is the distributor, or you can call them, a very good and helpful company. Also the person above with the display problem, I would call them also.

See my thread on RV Home theatre. I used Clarion coaxial 40 Watt RMS boat (shallow mount) speakers. Huge difference. Adding a sub woofer makes it even better. My thread has photos of the change out.
