Leave the switch box on antenna and try the scan. Antenna is the input source. If its all running through the coax that should work.

Is it entertainment center or bunk over top? Side TV is easier you can look at what inputs are going in.

Used same procedure as above with:
-antenna up
-switch box on antenna
-auto channel scan on air
-RF CH: 69 FOUND:7

then switched box to DVD
pressed 3-0
Nothing

Channels found are: 2-1, 2-2, 13-1, 13-2, 20-1, 33-0, 43-0

This is the overhead bunk TV and yes on;y a COAX is connected to it.

Also had a problem with DVD picture tried all of the suggested fixes with negative results. Called magandyne during business hours and spoke with one of their techs he took me through a series of prompts the accessed the devices internal settings that fixed the problem. Basically, you are telling the devive where to find the DVD signal to send to the TV. Sorry I don't have the information to give to you but I would suggest that you call magadyne direct and talk to a tech. Hope this helps.

I have had the same problem with the in dash player. If you are in an area where there actually is a CHANNEL 3 (antenna or cable), it will come in clear. But if you are in an area where there is no channel 3, it's grainy. My RV has 3 TV's, the center one has an independent DVD player, and everything is clear.

I have also noticed that the rear TV, being smaller, isn't as "grainy" as the front TV, which is bigger. Both of those are on the dash player.

As for getting the channel 3 or 4, if you are not in an area with a channel 3 or 4, you have to put the DVD in, and then it will "find" channel 3 or 4. Royal pain in the butt. Or, pressing 3-0 or 4-0 will also work, as long as you have a DVD in the player.

I don't like the switchbox or the in-dash player.

Magnadyne tells me there's nothing that needs to be done (or can be done) with the DVD player in the menus. I took it upon myself to remove the unit from the dash to check the wires for connection. Everything looks fine.

Still nothing.. The TV's are just not "finding" the DVD signal..

Not sure how technical you are...but if it was me (I would do this to my own and I have convinced the plant to do the same going forward).

Where the A/V cable runs into the switch box from the dash DVD player...split Red/White/Yellow off of that and hook it straight into AV1 on the back of the TV. Then Air will be "Over the Air" channels. TV input AV1 will be DVD player, plus it will be a clearer picture.

I would have to be there to walk through the steps as it sits currently. We've used a few different switch boxes over the last year or so trying to find a good one.

As a side note, if you have a power antenna (little button on the plate where you TV 12V plugs in) that needs to be OFF (no light, or popped out) for the DVD player signal to get through.

OK, just checked this on a unit waiting to ship out front.

1. Put DVD in dash. Auto play started. Verify sound & video on dash screen.
2. Switch box on DVD-DVD-DVD
3. Front TV on. Input was ANT. Was on channel 16 which is our local station.
4. Menu-Scan for channels.
5. Once it passed channels 3 & 4 I stopped the scan.
6. DVD was playing on Channel 4-0, channel up, got 16, channel down, back on 4-0

I have asked for a direct hook up (as opposed to coax) at least on the front TV. I noticed on this switch box there is a "DVD IN" and below that a "DVD OUT". Those are Red/White/Yellow. Then Coax OUT for 3 TV's. I noticed that there were cables in the DVD OUT, so I tested my request. I switched the input from ANT to AV2 and there was the DVD playing again.

IF your switch box does not have cables in the DVD OUT, then you can just hook those cables into the back of the TV into AV2. No scanning, no nothing. Just switch the input on the TV to AV2 and you'd got your DVD playing.

By using the INPUT-ANT, you need to scan for the signal, just like over the air channels. With AV2 it is a digital signal and it will just play whatever signal is feeding AV2.

This is becoming quite the project. :-) So, I repeated your procedures above with still no success. Next I pulled the switch box out and begun to review all the cables in/out of it. I noticed there was a red/white/and yellow set on the DVD in. So I assume this is the DVD from the dash player. The cable was quite long and I was able to connect it directly to the same into the side of the front TV (AV1). This should play no problem, right? Still no movie..

Next up I suppose I need to pull the DVD out of the dash and make sure the R/W/Y is connected to the proper output...

That would be my logical next step. See if the wires got pulled loose in the dash.
