video selector box ?

The video selector box was missing when we bought the rv. The one on the Newmar sight is listed at $135.
Has any one replaced their box?
If so what did you buy and how much was it?
We don't have a satellite but we do have a dvd player.
2- TV's ,one up front and one in rear bed room.
I would like to watch a separate program/channel on the back TV while my kid watches a dvd on the front TV.
What should I buy

Mike here is a whole bunch of different boxes for older TV's or the newer HDMI ones these days.
If you have older TV's in QT's # 3 there is a section with many conversions for new LCD's.

Well the Video selector box on many RV's served two purposes.
First: it was a matrix switch (link to a company that makes many such swiches below, you will have to find the one you want).

Second it provides power to the rooftop (Antenna head) Pre-amp

For this second function I'd add a Winegard Sensar Pro (100 bucks) as .. well, it is way way better than the original to began with.. Provides additional amplification (optional and adjustable) provides signal finder and a signal meter, provides more.. Read the manual)

Then a matrix switch
