I agree with you, Hobo, the volume is still too loud, can't get it under 6. But our Dealer back home walked us thru the DVD situation. All it was was putting the TV on HDMI 1 and we selected on the tv remote "picture size" and chose THEATRE #2, that just about filled the whole tv.

iRV 33 sound loss

I just purchased a 2015 Flagstaff Micro Lite with the iRV 33 and it also "disables" the speakers after some time period. Shutting off power and waiting for a few minutes brings back the sound. I will be visiting my dealer for this as well, but it does seem to me that this could be internal overload detection in the output amplifier. The specs in the manual are somewhat vague, but the manual seems to indicate that the amplifier is capable of 50 watts and the 4 ohm speakers are only rated at 30 watts.

I have a 2015 forest river 8312ss. I noticed the stereo issue when I brought my home. I called the dealer and took the camper back 1 week after I bought it. They kept it at there lot for the winter (free storage&#128526. They supposedly fixed it, I checked it out and nope not right. I put a decibel meter on it and found at volume level 1 it is a 70 decibels. That's too loud. I called Mark about this and he is sending me the radio directly. Well I'm on my third radio and still not right. Don't get me wrong I don't mind going this route because my dealer is an hour away and I like my camper at home. I was told these radios are $600 each retail, now I have $1800 worth of stereos sitting in my basement now. They wok great except for the volume issue.

Angry iRV 33 Remote Control

My remote control is broken. Has anyone tried a universal remote with this radio. I can't find anything online on where to get a replacement.

You must be under warranty to get it replaced as long as it is not damaged. You should be able to coordinate that with your dealer pretty easily...

No, but the IRV has an app for Apple and Android. Search IRV33 or IRV66 in your App Store. You can control many of the radio functions with the App.

So I have to play with my system a little more (just picked up yesterday), but initial observations:

1 - inside speakers were loud enough at volume levels 1 thru 3, but the outside speakers would be inaudible. If I made it so you could hear the outside speakers, the inside speakers were way too loud (and my ears are old).

2 - we couldn't get TV Audio to play.

Seems like both of these are issues that people had in this thread. I'm going to go out and hunt around for settings tonight, and try the iOS app. Any tips?

Same here. Dont have a solution yet for outside speakers, but for TV audio, I disconnected it from the back of the IRv where FR connected it and changed it to digital coaxial imput, and moved it to the digital coaxial out on the tv. This only uses one connection and gives you one that is not in use. Also, you have to use digital in instead of tv. I think it is like dac/dfc.
