da',

The Sony: push "source" on the radio until you get "disc" on the display after you've inserted the DVD. There's a little button on the upper right of the face that opens it so you can insert a DVD or CD.

The Samsung: Open menu on the remote and go down the list to "input" and click on it and you will get at the right "tv" for something like that and click on it and you will get "AV 1" as an option. Click on that and all is well. When you want to watch TV, reverse the input.

These electronic items have such confusing instructions and more options than a human can learn that I figured it out by pushing buttons until they either blow up or work.

You can also get regular TV sound to come over the radio speakers by setting the radio to AUX. There may be a background hum when you do this. If so turn off the speaker in the TV.

I only have coax hooked up to TV. No other source is going to the TV. I think this is the problem. Seems I will be taking it back to the dealership soon.

The coax is the only connection to the TV, but when the radio is on, TV sounds should come out of the radio speakers when the source is set at CDC (I think that's the setting, or something much like that). If you have it set to tuner, you get AM or FM.

Our '08 has 2 inputs on the back of the TV—cable and air. I attached a short piece of coax to each, merged them at a splitter and then connected the splitter to the coax coming out of the wall so I didn't have to unscrew the coax each time I had a different input.

that's not right. I have a 25' International CCD also. There is a cable from the TV antenna above, and I belive some RCA (video and two audio) cables coming into the TV on the back.

You do have the Sony DVD player that's mounted just above and left of the door, with a CD changer inside the upper cabinet, correct???

The DVD/audio surround sound is an option, not standard. Maybe this is one of the few where it's not installed...

I have two RCA audio cables (red and white) and one coax connecting to the 23" Samsung LCD TV. My TV will play over the Sony radio speakers fine. But I can not get my Sony radio DVD to play video on the TV. I really think they forgot to run the three rca cables (red, white, and yellow) to the TV. I've asked the dealer and hopefully they will get back with me Monday. Since I've pulled it home Wednesday (09/23/2009) we have already find several minor issues, so we will be taking it back real soon (before we ever take it on a trip).

My mistake. Yes, my Samsung has 5 RCA plugs—including component style connections which has a yellow connection as part of a triple cable (left and right sound plus video). I assume (since I didn't look too closely) the triple cable comes from the Sony radio/DVD player and the double cable is TV sound going to the Sony. All the cables, including the coax, are sheathed together and disappear in the partition.

It may be that at the factory they never included the triple cable for whatever reason. I would think it would be included in case the dealer installed the upgrade as there's other wiring installed for later inclusion of options. My TV and Sony sound system was installed at the factory.

In the bedroom, there's an receptacle for coax, but I don't recall seeing any connections for the Sony radio/DVD player (I should have looked; not looking gets me in trouble)

the COMPOSITE (one video RCA, two audio RCA) connection they use from the DVD player to the HD LCD TV drives me nuts... optimally, it should be COMPONENT (three video RCA, two audio RCA). If not, then at least S-Video would be an improvement. As it is, the picture quality for DVD's is comparable to a bad VHS tape.... OTA hi-def TV looks phenom... oh well, can't have *everything* when ur camping <wink>

I'd like to run an HDMI cable, for possible future Blu-Ray install... but I can't imagine running one would be practical (from overhead front cabinet to fridge wall mount)... any ideas?

I ran an OSB cable under the cushions of the guacho, under the dinette and to the other side of the table. If I put in a DVD upgrade, I'd put the DVD player as close to the TV as possible. I have the microwave and printer in a small cabinet next to the partition the TV is on and would mount the DVD player on top of that and then it's inches to the TV.

Normally all the electronic equipment should be in the same place, but the guacho makes that difficult. Since we don't use it as a bed, it's become a cabinet holder.

I don't know your floor plan, but maybe you need an entertainment center close to the TV. I wish the radio was there so I didn't have to use it above my head constantly changing the volume as the A/C goes on or off, commercial blare on TV, or use the remote from an awkward angle while watching a DVD.

I have thought about putting a mirror on the table by the TV and seeing if it would reflect the remote back to the radio. I haven't tried it yet though.
regards,
Ken

what's an OSB cable?

you're right, the location of the receiver is screwy... I swear the remote works better when the cabinet door is closed <crazy>...

Ken, you can reflect the remote with a mirror, though it doesn't seem to reflect off the TV. Maybe I'll have my wife stand in the hallway holding a mirror since she's the one who always wants the volume changed.

Finalcut, a USB cable is what I meant. I think it means universal serial buss. An OSB cable would be made out of oriented strand board and fall apart immediately.
