Not to sound too much like a prat, but what if you leave the curtains open then can you control it through the RV.

On the linking of DVD to TVs. I would rather have it that way and get my own small DVD players for each TV than wish I could link them together and have no way of doing it.

Just my .02

Good luck
and remember

An IR repeater should solve the problem - something like this: Amazon.com: C2G / Cables to Go 40430 Impact Acoustics Infrared Remote Control Repeater Kit Black: Electronics

would work if using the front TV, but it's cold where I am, so don't want to let cold air in by parting the curtain. On the other hand, if watching DVD on back TV, that wouldn't work. too far away.

There have been posts in other threads about the grainy picture quality of watching DVD's in the MagnaDyne system.

My experiences so far have been:

watching it on channel 3 when there is no "over the air" channel 3 (GRAINY, plus the effort to tune the channel in....)

watching it on Channel 3 when the cable system at the RV park doesn't have channel 3 (GRAINY, plus the extra effort to tune the channel in)

Ok, right now I'm at at an RV park in Oregon that actually has a channel 3 as part of their cable system. Guess what, I have a beautiful picture on both the front TV and the bedroom TV (which are connected to a "switchbox). The DVD picture is even better and clearer than watching the actual channel 3 on cable which is digital being forced down to analog.

On the other hand, the picture is still a little bit better when watching it on the middle TV which is independent and has a separate DVD player.

So, as I think I have read in other posts, it is slightly dependent on whether or not there is a channel 3 existing.

Also, in my first two examples, I found that I had to use either the TV sound or the MagnaDyne sound, couldn't use both, or I would get conflicts. Since I'm in an area where there IS a channel 3, I'm not experiencing the "conflict" when I use both TV sound and MagnaDyne sound. But I like the MagnaDyne sound better, as it comes through all the ceiling speakers.

Sunseeker 3170, and all three of my TV's are the Jensen 12 volt, which I have been pleased with so far!

When I ordered my 3170 (which has three TV's), I tried to tell them to not install a TV in the computer zone since I was getting the computer desk and not the kiddies bunk bed, why would I need a TV there....... BUT!!!!! I find I do use that middle TV that I thought I wouldn't need.......
