TV Connections

I replaced the front TV in our 2003 bus due to extreme weight, waiting for the entire overhead console to come down while driving down the road, also replaced the receiver from home with HD, the new receiver does not have coax connections. I can connect HDMI from the receiver directly to the new front TV. This is an issue for the rear TV as it is original and I have not figured out a way to connect out of the receiver back into the selector box for the rear TV. Since it is analog the only signal that works is if a RV park has cable and then only channels 2-13. It will not tune to channels higher than 14. Is there a converter plug to change the HDMI out of the receiver to coax?
What are the new units using for HD units?

It can be done but it isn't cheap. See HERE for info. The cheap adapters don't work according to the research I did.
Note that HDMI cable can be 50 feet or so long and could be run to the back TV. Might be quite a job though.

New TV's are pretty cheap in smaller sizes.


For about $200 you can get a wireless HDMI unit that will send the front signals to the back.


Not much help, I guess....

Ed, unless your box has a coaxial output I would suggest replacing the rear TV. I don't think those converters are very reliable. JMHO

If you are using the VIP211z receiver, it has HDMI and RCA output. I have been using an adapter in my home for the past 6 + years to go between RCA and Coax. and it works just fine. I recently purchased one for the RV, but have not installed it yet but have tested it at home and it worked fine.


Amazon.com: RF Modulator TV Switch Audio Video RCA Ant Input to F Type Coax Output Converter: Electronics


So, on the back of the 211z, there are both HDMI and RCA output.. they send signals at the same time. You can connect your front TV directly via HDMI and your rear TV take the RCA off the 211Z to the device above and then into your video switch in the coach via Coax.. then just switch as normal thru your coach video switch for the rear TV.

Are you using DISH or DirecTV? If it is DISH you need a VIP 211K receiver. It has coax out in SD that will work with your current rear TV. You will have to purchase one online because DISH no longer supplies the 211K for lease.

I am using Direct TV, it was recommended on another forum that I try an adapter from Radio Shack.
RF Modulator is what I purchased, RCA in and coax out. I plugged it in and it works.
$28.99 plus Tax.
