DVD Player in Siesta

Been racking my brain for a while now trying to get the coach DVD player to work. Resorted to a stand-alone blu-ray player connected directly to the TV we are watching at the time. Confirmed DVD player is wired to the video switch box (DVD input - 2 audio and 1 video). But there is nothing connected to the video switch box DVD out. I suspect Thor realized that none of the 3 TVs have the required input connections after they connected the DVD player to the video switch box.

Ideas? Thanks in advance

My Hurricane did not come with a dvd player - only came with the video switch box. After purchasing the dvd player myself, I found one of the HDMI cables (one going to the main lounge TV) was kinked and broken during installation. After three days, a video camera, much cursing, finally got the new cable in and started to replace shelves and walls. Hope yours is not this problem!

Waiting to hear from Thor. There are no HDMI cables in my RV. All TVS have HDMI inputs. My video switch box has no HDMI input connections.

All of my TVs have the Red/Green/Blue (PC) input connections. They don't have the old 2 audio and 1 video inputs.

Whose challenge is tougher? Unsure.

On my 2015 Siesta I have to select dvd on the video box and put the switch to channel 3, and make sure the tv is on channel 3. Works on all 3 TV's
Found out you can't watch the outside TV at night because of the moths!

Thanks!!

Steveha - The manual you provided was a big help. Never occurred to me to turn the switch box power off completely. Had to restart the smart TV I just purchased a couple times. All's well. Owe you big time!!!

Trying these hints tomorrow, I've had 6 technology savvy , under 26 yrs old in , around, over and under this rig trying to get the DVD player to work. We get sound via stereo....but, not a single picture on ANY tv. Fingers crossed.
