Getting video to the bedroom TV

Just took possession of a 2011 Serrano 31V. LOVE IT. I was going over all the bits and pieces today with the stack of manuals in hand. The one thing I couldn't figure out was how to watch a DVD in the bedroom. The supplied video unit is a Memorex STS2891-RV. I had a look at the back of the unit and the 2nd TV is wired in, though not by the S-Video cable as described in the manual, but through Component cables. None the less wired in. When I turn on the BR TV it shows "No Signal" regardless of the source selected.
Anybody have any ideas?

Do you have some sort of selector switch for the bdrm TV? If you can access the rear of th tv, check the inputs. I just rplaced the old TV's in my coach and had to keep the VCR for the DVD to modulate on channel 3 or 4 but I have a selector switch. Good luck

Sony DVD units require a little understanding. Refering to Sony manual (http://baileyswholesale.com/prodpdf/...NERSMANUAL.pdf) pdf page 11 (manual page 10) please note that if Progressive Video (pdf page 9; Item 26) is selected for output, there is no output from the composite video connector (pdf page 9; Item 19). Make sure both TV and Sony unit are setup to use the same video cable path. You will have to dig deep into TV and DVD user manual setup information to deduce this.
However, here is the rub. The audio output from the DVD (Pdf page 9; Item 25) is used for all DVD video outputs. Many TV's have a combined Video/Audio inputs for each video channel (not shared). May force you to use the DVD Surround Sound for audio since the DVD audio is not seen by the TV.

Thanks guys. @Dave, yes I was wondering the same thing about the audio. No point in watching the TV in the BR if all the sound is in the main cabin. I've looked at the wireing on the back of the player, going to have to take a look at the back of the TV, If I can figure out how to get behind it. It's mounted in a recess in the wall. On the other side of the wall is the bathroom but no sign of anchoring hardware through the wall to the TV.
The search continues.

If you can get the coach wiring diagram it might save you a lot of disassembly.
The Audio problem might be able to be solved with "Y" audio adaptors and a little cable running. All that is available at Radio Shack.
