Get DVD to run on TV

I have a 2012 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8315 BSS with a Genisis GT 3.0 radio -etc.
hooked to a Konka 26 inch KDL26 KSIBU TV.

Am trying to get DVD to play on TV but what input source do I use of the following -TV-AV-Componet--HDM!-HDM2 - VGA or USB

Cables from TV are hooked to which plug in ?



Thanks for any input.

On my FR3 I set the TV source to AV. Turn off the power antenna. Remember the controls for play and sound etc are on the Genesis, not the TV.

The input you choose depends on what input you connect the DVD to,

For Composite ( yellow, red white cable) choose choose composite.
For Component ( Red, Blue, Green ) choose Componant
For HDMI ( HDMI cable) choose. HDMI
For RF out ( coax) choose AV Be sure to turn off ant amp

In most cases video is delivered to TV but sound is delivered out of DVD speakers. Note make sure outside speakers are off if you are inside.,

Good point! I've been known to entertain fellow campers (and them entertain me) at times!

Not good when your neighbors ask the next morning "How was XYZ Movie last night"

I just hooked one up and I had to hook up 2 sets of 3 plugins to get both picture and sound. I would think if you have an HDMI hookup on both the DVD and the TV you should be one and done. Just make sure you are on the right "source" which can be found on the TV changer directing the TV to show that source.

My Genisis GT only has AV outputs. So that is what the TV uses. Sound is controlled by the radio.

The three wire (yellow, re, white ) output wires go into the AV jacks of the same color on the TV (they are composite jacks) and you select AV on the TV to watch them.
If you try this and nothing is seen then you need to look that they plugged the wires in correctly at both the TV and the Radio.

I have the same issue. It did play the DVD at one time about 2 years ago but since then cannot make it work. I don't know how to get to the back of the Genesis to see what plug they used and cannot get tv out far enough to see the back. I finally just plugged in an HDMI cable to the tv and then used my computer to watch the DVD. This also allows the sound to be through the tv. When it was through the Genesis I could not turn it down enough to watch while DW slept.

Thanks for any input.
I have the same 2012 TT but different TV. For access, I had to remove the bezel around the radio which exposed the screws to remove it. This is the ONLY access other than through the small outlets in the VCR shelf area. We just bought ours in May and the only thing hooked to the TV was the coax going to the antenna. I changed antennas before even watching the TV and am now going to figure out what goes where. The AV cables hooked to the TV were just hanging behind the wall. I'm going with AV1 on those. I need to figure out how to put the amp in line on the antenna since it's built in. My King Jack antenna came with a power supply but indicates you can use the one built into the camper if so equipped. Any and all comments are welcome. Still figuring this out...fixed the bypass under the kitchen sink with a bonafide 1/4 turn ball valve from Lowes and my brother in law is a plumber so he loaned me some pex, clamps and crimpers. Easy once you have all that stuff!
