Installed video filter

Received a video filter from Forest River, provided by Concertone. Installed it yesterday, tested DVD with my Toshiba TV in my 8285WS, CRAP IT WORKS !!!!!!!!! No more jumping picture from the DVD.

If problem with the install, I'd like a list of things I can check before I bring it back to the dealer. IE: something I can fix myself.

I can pretty much guarantee, anything my Dealer can do with the audio video system on my RLBSS831, I can do it better and to a higher standard....

Not being confrontational, just looking for a resolution to the jumping video problem. Be it replacement of the unit itself or an adjustment of attaching components.

P.S. My video does not "jump" with a stand alone dvd player attached to the Toshiba in my trailer.

P.P.S. I do not have video sync problems with the audio track. At least, not that I've noticed or maybe it's just a "not yet"....
Great white I like your thoughts. I agree! I'm no expert electrician, but I can still do a video unit instal better than a dealer. So taking it to them is a large waste of time I have found. Have you fixed yours yet?

Dude! Why does your fix work but not mine? So frustrating.

Hello, OP here. Based on Great whites comments (page 9) I can now safely assume replacing the tv will not fix the issue. Forest River is now sending me a 4th unit. Supposedly concertones newest unit (a GT3) in hopes it will fix the jumping video issue. I can't find a single mention of this model on the web. But reluctantly, I will try it out. What choice do I have???

Wow - if they are sending you a GT3 you really are getting an upgrade. HDMI & Bluetooth on top of a bunch of other stuff - I know a few guys here will be jealous...

OK! I got my GT3.0 as a replacement for my zx700 the other day and just installed it. I am happy to announce that the video no longer jumps. In fact, partly probably because of the new hdmi port, the video quality is now outstanding. Although, now I get this weird low quick base sound coming out of my subwofer every couple seconds. But via the menu I am able to turn off the subwoofer so I'm ok with it for now. Still, a much much lesser of two evils. I am a happy camper again!

Mine already works like you've asked about. Take a look at the owner's manual and verify that everything is wired as recommended. Maybe that will show something.

As always, photos of the TV connections and wall plate/cables will help us help you. We have no clear idea of what is available on your particular TV as even the same model year can have different TVs installed.
