Exclamation HELP! Disc Player and Outside TV

2nd time out in the coach and want to do a movie night with my daughter and grand-daughter. My Quantum has more TVs than I know what to do with but after reading all the manuals, still can't figure out how to direct the disc player to the outside (or for that matter, bedroom) TVs. Seems I could only link the player to the main TV in the living area. Would love to do an evening movie and popcorn event with the family but donít know how to link the player to the outside TV. HELP?!!!

My DVD player also only worked on the living room tv. The only way is to take the player outside and physically hook it to the outside TV. Or use a wireless system to the outside tv.

That's what I do. I connected the HDMI cable to the TV and left it there. When I want to have a movie night outside I just connect the DVD player to the cable, plug it in and I'm good to go.

Wolfstar,

You can get an HDMI splitter, put it on the output from a DVD player and then run an HDMI cable the inside TV and one to the outside TV and show the movie on both TV's at the same time.

The headache is running the cable to the outside. On my Vegas 24.1 it required running it behind the microwave (had to remove the microwave), then down along the side of the fridge (within the framed wall), drill a hole in the wall at the bottom of the framed wall around the fridge (had to remove the lower of the two drawers under the range), then out to the outside TV via a hole already there for the outside TV power.

The DVD player on the dash radio in the Vegas only shows on the dash screen and has low def RCA plugs that are not run to any of the TV's in the Vegas...they are just laying in the dash.

I agree with the HDMI splitter tactic.
My rig came with HDMI to all three TVs, and it's just a matter of picking
the proper input.
(If I can figure THAT out... )

We decided on USB to hdmi adapters and keeping movies on our phone.
It's just easier for us to plug the phone into an 8 buck permanently attached cable than to drag out a DVD player and make sure we have 110v available.

Our choices are all but unlimited movie wise and we store no power cabled, hdmi cabled wadded up and stuffed somewhere DVD player.
