I forgot to mention the TV is attached to a large plate and the plate is attached to a 1/2" plywood board. After you remove the 3 or 4 screws at the top and bottom the TV will come out, but beware it could fall out if you don't hold onto it. The plywood is attached to the top and bottom inside the cubby hole.

Wrapperman what size TV did you replace the old one with the same size? The new TV did you use the same brackets from the old TV?

Excellent work! That's the way it should come from the factory. I would appreciate more details on mounting the TV, etc. Also, how did you route the satellite cable to the
Directv receiver?

Good questions
Dutch I replaced the TV with a Vizio 43". The New Vizio has a narrower bezel which enabled the larger TV to fit perfectly in the cubby hole. I also used the same bracket but I turned it upside down and drilled new mounting holes to attach to the back of the TV because it was sticking below the bottom of the TV too low to install the self. The TV is a smart TV.

Surcy, I will get back to you how I mounted it either this evening or Saturday morning when I have more time to write. It took me longer to figure out how and where to mount the wires than actually doing it. We are going out to eat with our little niece shortly.

Hope you had a nice dinner.
I have a specific question about the wiring. Did you run the Sat. cable from the antenna directly to the receiver and if so, how did you route it in the slide.
I have an issue with the splitter that goes to the front TV and cannot get to it. It is hidden in the overhead and so far, out of reach.
I would like to route another cable and bypass the splitter, but cannot figure out how to route through the slide and to TV.

2014 378xl front tv removal

Surcy good morning. Yes we did enjoy our dinner, thanks for asking.
I put. The Directv receiver under the TV. I ran the sat. cable straight down under the belly of the slideout then I attached it to the outside of the PVC pipe that contains the cable, as in the pic. Wrapped it around to the duplex plate. I then added a duplex plate that has 2 cable connectors, since my receiver is a 2 tuner model. I have a portable HiDef antenna. With a app on my phone it takes about 10 minutes to set up.

As for the splitter I don't use it for anything other than over the air or cable. I us an HDMI transmitter/receiver to broadcast the HDMI signal to the bedroom TV and a HDMI splitter to bring the signal to the outside TV. Both the transmitter and splitter are behind the TV. Here is a picture of the transmitter.

With my Sony home theater I added 3 speakers above the the table and 2 speakers behind the couch and the subwoofer behind the chair.

If you have other ideas or questions on where to place your receiver let me know as I have other ways I would do it if I did it over again. Like if you want to keep the receive above the passenger cabinet I'll let you know that also.
