Shakedown Breakdown (3051SF) Continued
I hear you on the TVs. We said we definitely did not want the outside TV and wouldn't have ordered it if we special ordered. But we didn't and we have 3 TVs and I want to make sure they all work as they should.
And as much as we don't need that outside TV, the reality is the grandkids are kept very happy with a movie outside while we make dinner etc. after a full day of activities. Much better outside if weather permits and in the past we've hooked up a computer to do this. So the TV will be used.
I am happy to say I successfully turned off the LED Display on the Jensen unit that connects to the cabover TV. I initially turned it off completely and was very happy to see I could and then completely stressed over how to get the display back if needed for any other adjustments, etc. I had to blindly do it and hope I was at the right place when I turned the volume control. Got it back and dimmed to 1 (it was originally set at 2) and will see if that is livable. Seems like it would be a no brainer to make the LED Display a toggle switch for ON/OFF. But it isn't.
My conclusion is my media equipment is probably all hooked up accurately and I will probably be able to watch movies from USB drive while plugged into electricity (only) by adding a separate dvd player into the system via hdmi. EXCEEPT the Boss BV6654B clearly states it can play MP4 files and it doesn't make sense it would only play them from a DVD and not a USB Drive. It sees jpgs on the usb drive so that isn't the issue. I am on hold to ask Boss right now and then will move on to my next issues.
PS to Gohawks - I can watch TV w/o electrical hook-ups. All TVs and media control centers run off 12v (no inverter needed) and all tested accordingly.
