iRV33 DVD Problems

I have a 2015 Puma 23FB with the iRV33 combination radio/DVD player. I've figured out how to use both the antenna and the cable connections. I have one 75 ohm cable from the wall plate to the back of my Samsung TV.
I get good TV reception to both the dinette and bedroom connections.

I've inserted several pre-recorded DVD'S and only get sound through the TT speakers, no picture or sound to the TV. Have I missed something or is there a connection I'm missing? Am I supposed to access the rear of the iRV33 and connect RCA cables? If so, why wasn't this done by FR?

I've tried everything as far as sources on the TV inputs. How can I get the DVD's to play?

Yes, I do believe FR failed to properly hook up a number of these units correctly. I seem to remember on mine it was plugged into the wrong connectors. If you take it out (not hard, remove two screws on both sides of the unit) and take a look the connections are clearly marked and you should be able to figure out where they went wrong.

Some iRV's have been incorrectly connected from the factory as mentioned.

You'll need to pull your unit and check.
Some use the RCA type cable connections to the TV and some have provisions for a HDMI cable. You'll need to use what your TV can accept.

Once connected, select the proper input source on your TV and you should be good to go.
