How do these video connections work?

Below is a snapshot of a video connection which is located under the television in the main living area of our Bounder 33C. Haven't yet figured out what it's for but my guess is that these are composite video connections that could be used by plugging in some kind of device and then changing the source on the TV to view that output? Or perhaps it's for output not input?

Not sure what the knob is for either.

Itís a composite video with audio. The yellow is your video and the red and white your audio (left and right). Usually itís used to switch a device from the front tv to the back tv. You should have an input and two outputs, one in the front and one in the back. Not sure if yours is setup exactly like that but that is how they are generally setup.

Those are A/V inputs. On our coach, one set is behind a shelf beside the big TV, where I'd presume you would place a game, such as Xbox.

We also have set above the dash, below that TV. I've thought about using them to connect the laptop with Google Maps to it. But ours is a 10-yar old coach; I doubt they put them on newer ones because wireless is now the way to go for this purpose.

In each case, the TV input selector would give you access.

Thanks for the input. I do believe there are also composite connections in the BR area. I'll have to check that when back at the coach. I do know there's also a coax cable connection in the BR and not at all what that's for. The previous owner did have a satellite on the roof which is no longer there so I assume that many of the connections I'm finding are somehow related to that.

Interesting thought re. displaying Google Maps as I have had the same idea! Also thought about how one might connect a rear view camera to display on the dash TV-- mindful of course of the caution one would have to observe with that kind of potential distraction. But at the same time, something that might be pretty useful for my co-pilot.

Problem is I don't see any way-- or at least any easy way to gain access to the ports on that TV. I does have HDMI ports and I assume more than one but beats me how to get at the back of the thing.

With the TV remote find your input selections and select the composite video input. You do not have to get to the back of the TV to do this.

Right, I realize that. What I'm saying is that I'd like to be able to access the other ports-- HDMI or PC-- for other purposes.

Is there a translucent panel above your TV? If so, there are lights up there and that knob controls the brightness.
