THOR #819
HDMI 4X4 Matrics

does anyone else have issues with their video splitter box? On our Tuscany, picture on our tv will go on and off, it will pirate, voice will be there but no picture, I would have to cycle through all inputs, all picture settings, turn the splitter on and off, finally I can watch tv. Company that deals with splitter box will not replace it, since it does not deal with individuals, and we are 1500 miles from dealer we bought the MH from. Any suggestions, Or has anyone else have issues like this?
Thank you.

I have the exact same problem.


The TV in the living area of my Hurricane will flicker on and off and then when on, the sound is intermittent and the bottom of the screen is scrambled.


Problem: Thor had the HDMI cable smashed in on a 100 degree angle to the back of the TV, which damaged the cable. (Funny, there are 2 other HDMI ports that would have prevented this) I found this by hooking up the DVD player directly to the TV with another cable and the problem disappeared. I have three other TV's going to the box and all work fine.


I purchased a new HDMI cable online and it also solved the problem from the box to the TV. Now I have to wait for warm weather to try to wire the replacement where the old one is. This could be your problem as well. Good luck!

Hdmi...

Nursex2, I have replaced every single HDMI cable, except 5e-6 cable, running in ceiling I presume, but no help. Talking to company that deals with splitter box was no help, since they prefer to talk to tech working on them. I believe problem lies with cable Thor installed, but I don't know if I can replace it by myself.
Thanks for help.

You are probably correct. I did a little research into the splitter box I have in the Hurricane and it received mixed reviews. But like I said, mine was the cable.


Not sure where your cable runs but mine goes through the wall and under the floor to the other side.


Good luck John!

I guess I have a choice of trying to track it myself or put up with acting tv until we get back to dealer. Thanks for your help. Safe travels!
