2020 Hurricane 33x - HMDI tv cable not working

My living room tv hdmi cable isn't working, as well as the bedroom. There is a hmdi splitter in the cabinet over the recliners, the one hdmi cable going to the outside tv works, the other two do not. Looks like they run through the ceiling and cabinets. Is this something I can replace or the dealer? Didn't think to test the dvd player out when at the dealer before driving it off the lot, seeing that the tv worked with OTA. Plus the OAT (part of the TOGO Winegard ConnecT) signal doesn't pickup all the local channels that it should. Rescanned multiple times with no change.

I'm sure this isn't what you want or you'd have done it:
But
I wouldn't chase those cables for more than a minute.

Blueray players are $59 down to $20. I'd buy seperate players and call it a day.
They'll be right at the TV you're watching, the remote will work better and you have no agrevation from chasing wires. The wire thing was great when a Blueray player was $300, now it's like wiring every room in your house for a land line phone.

$22 shipped. 4000+four star review.
$44 ends your cable problem forever.

And

We download movies to our phone from Netflix and Amazon. Phone plugs right into the TV or it will bluetoototh or sync. We use an hdmi cable on the 3xterra tv's but a fire TV will let you link.
It so much easier. It doesn't have to be YOUR phone. My rv has a couple of older phones doing GPS and app duty only. They live in the rv.

Discs are now like cassette tapes. It's a hell of a collection some folks have, and they insist on using them.

I need to replace the current hdmi cables so I can setup my dish walley, the dvd player that came with the rv is not going to be used. The tv is above the dinette without any cabinets and the cabinet with the hdmi splitter is on the other side of the rv.

Does the box where all 3 tvs are connect has all the cables in the right sockets? Is there a power button? I have turn ours off when we connect to the CG CATV connection.

All three hdmi cables plug into a 2x4 splitter, the splitter works because one of the three cables works. I have tested all four ports so that not the issue, just bad/damaged hdmi cables running from the bedroom to the cabinet and from the living tv to the cabinet. The outside tv hdmi cable works. I will have to run new cables, which is going to be a pain.

I replaced a bad cable with a wireless hdmi transmitter/receiver pair. Replacing the cable running to the tv in the slideout was impractical. Wireless was easy and cost about $100.

I've been looking at the wireless transmitter/receiver option. Is there noticeable lag time? Does it interfere with other wireless devices like cell phones?

Lag, if any, is not noticeable. I purchased a refurbished unit for $80.

On the right side of the cabinet there is a panel. Push the button on the panel. It should work

The button on the panel has nothing to do with the HDMI cable, that's for the coax connections. The TV works when the source is set to antenna. The HDMI cables that connect to the main tv and the bedroom tv are bad. The HDMI cable that runs out the the outside TV works.
