I'm figuring on a different system, just haven't got very far on it. Conceptually, I like independent listening systems for the driver and passenger, possibly chair mounted.

Also doesn't make sense to have a front and rear system that can't be coupled to one sound source.
If you go in to your radio settings and find the fader you can set it so the speakers over the couch can be turned down or off. At least that's how mine worked.

Penguin,
Thanx, I'll give it a look. I haven't been too impressed with the "intuitiveness" of the Axerra in mine. I do have the manual (soft) so I will also give that a better look.

I can control or turn off the rear speakers on my 29m. Speaker volume control is in the settings.

...I imagine he is referring to 'splitting' the signal output of the receiver to several TVs, not that the receiver itself is capable of providing multiple signals, as they are not. But, the caveat is also that every TV will also be watching exactly the same thing at the same time... only the primary TV/receiver will be able to change channels.

...if you want each TV to have the option of watching 'what they want' individually, you would have to either a separate portable antenna for each, and each would have to have it's own receiver, or you would have to use a 'home style' manual open-faced antenna, on a tripod or such, to drive up to three separate receivers/TVs individually.
Some portable antennas can also give two outputs, to two receivers, but the second receiver is limited to only different channels on a single Satellite, not all three satellites like the primary receiver has access to, but it can work for some folks.

some coaches have the 'bomb'(box of many buttons) to provide TV signal outputs to each TV separately, and may have a 'Satellite' input, and that may push the signal to each TV, but it would be in SD, even if the receiver was receiving an HD channel signal, as the coax connection can not provide that.

These setups can get a little complicated, depending on what you want to 'do' when watching TV. Because there are really several choices when it comes to the type of tv watching many RVrs want to do, the manufacturers have to find a 'middle ground' and give each 'some' type of reasonable outcome, though it's often something you have to make modifications or changes to, in order to satisfy your RVing style.

When I purchased my coach, I asked the dealer and Thor MC how to wire my coach for DirecTV. The response was to go wireless. Since the sticks and bricks is wireless, I simply carry the genie and video bridge to the coach when we travel.

I was helping friend get his brand new 5'r set up for satellite etc. which had 3 different no-name TVs and funky wiring (mix RCA and cheap coax, no HDMI) and I had to laugh when he was hooting and dancing when his outside tv worked even after saying he didn't really care. He had visions of sitting on the beach with a beer in his hand and watching a ball game. I was glad I could help, but failed to get the remote programmed for those funky TVs.

All four TV's were LED's and Smart TV's and both DVD players were Blue Ray in the Tuscany, one of the features that checked the box when we were looking

What model are you talking about?
