Just tried the interior TV and dash Jensen Nav radio DVD and I can play OTA TV thru the TV speakers or the thru the dash dvd player putting out to the surround speakers. Volume is acceptable.

Called River Park who handles the Connexx AVS400BT device and they are sending me out a new replacement dvd player direct. Had to give a credit card to insure I return of the defective unit. Should have it by the end of the week. Will post the results then.

Waiting to hear what happens. Mine has never worked right and the dealer crew could not figure it out either. In the scheme of things it is low on my priority list, way down below getting the AC replaced and working on also having the 2-door frig replaced. However, I would like to get it working so that my outside TV can be watching something different than my inside tv as that is currently the only way to get sufficient volume outside.

Problem solved!


Since I had the replacement radio/DVD player coming, I decided to remove the radio and mark the RCA cable positions. Low and behold, the TV cables were not in the TV ports. I changed them to the correct position and it's working GREAT! 100% better volume. Guess FR in their haste to get the job done put the cables in the wrong ports. I couldn't get close enough until I removed the radio to see the port marking names. I cancelled the radio from River Park electronics, but it may have already shipped.
So that's why it worked fine on radio and CD, but when put on TV it didn't work and the DVD sound wasn't working properly either. Now the sound from OTA TV will come thru the radio/DVD player and out the speakers, even the upper outdoor speakers under the awning by adjusting the fader. Couldn't hear them before.

Looks like I have a radio to remove. My new 2017 3011ds has same problems, tv won't play through the stereo. I finally got the inside tv to play through the overhead speakers as it was wired wrong too.
Must not be any electronics quality control at FR.

Thanks Sagecoach, I checked my radio, I had the same problem, swapped the jacks around and now the 4" speakers work great. Is there a way to get any sound from the outside speakers under the awning, from the outside tv/radio

Yes, do so at your own risk!
