RE: Non-subscription DVR?

About the only option for recording Dish satellite will be the Magnavox DVR and record the composite video (yellow RCA connector) out from the sat receiver. You will not be able to record the HDMI output because that will be copy protected. The Dish ViP211Z receiver only has HDMI and composite outputs and your TV has no HDMI input so you will only be able to watch standard def satellite on the TV. The Jensen JE1907 and the Magnavox DVR have ATSC tuners so you don't need a separate OTA converter box. Your best option would be to upgrade to a Dish DVR with local TV channels.

TV / DVD Player Question

So, the new RV has a 39" Furrion LED HDTV ... and below that is a Jensen JRV212T player that looks like it does about everything. We put a DVD into the Jensen, and it started playing, with the movie audio coming out of the speakers ... but, it would not play on the TV. I pushed the 'source' button and it has the following choices: TV AV Component HDMI 1 HDMI 2 HDMI 3 USB No matter which one I selected, it said no signal. I can see on the side of the TV that there are no HDMI cables plugged into any of those. I can barely see the back of the TV (it comes up from the kitchen counter) but I can see that there are various video cables hooked in back there. I pushed on all of them, and they are in tight. I did not see any USB cable connected. The setup: the TV comes up out of the counter. The stereo/DVD player is mounted right below the counter, and the fireplace is below that. There is no access door outside of the RV behind all of this. So, I am guessing we might have to pull out the fireplace to access the cords for the TV and stereo? Any ideas or thoughts? Thanks!

RE: 12v TV/monitor.. What your using please.. No inverters

My 2012 Timber Ridge came with a 32inch Jensen 12vdc television that has RCA input, HDMI, and VGA. It's connected to a Jensen surround sound system with DVD player that again runs off the batteries and seems to be fairly power efficient. As others have mentioned, you can walk through sams club, Costco, best buy or whatever and look to see if the tv is powered by a wall wart. If it is, the power input is more than likely capable of being run directly off the battery, you just need to make up a power cable with the right connector on the end.

RE: 12v TV/monitor.. What your using please.. No inverters

Its not that I don't have a inverter.. I do in the camper. But I don't, in my Cummins E350 and need entertainment for my passengers. Why didn't you say that in the first post Like I already said there are a bazillion automotive car entertainment LCD displays out there in multiple sizes and prices, the have a/v inputs so they work with game machines and portable DVD players No pc or TV I use a 7" flip down display as my backup rearview monitor Look at Amazon or frys electronics I didn't say that because I don't want to use my inverter. And like I said. I'm looking for a monitor which takes input from a PC not just dvd's. multi media monitor? Just bought this 32" Insignia from Best Buy for 169. It has the brick transformer. I had a 12 volt cig lighter plug and it works perfectly on 12 v and 110 when I have it. Has all the plugs on the back for anything you want to hook up. It plugs into my Jensen system also to play DVDs. Perfect hd picture ota. Thanks! that's great to know the brand your happy with at least.. Have you tried it hdmi to hdmi on a PC?

Jensen MP5000 DVD Player

We purchased a travel trailer with a Jensen MP5000 DVD/CD/Radio unit. This week-end we tried to play our first DVD in the camper and we could hear the DVD, but could not get the picture. We printed the manual and tried to follow the instructions. Can someone tell me what channel my TV should be on? We tried several different ones trying to get it to work. Thanks!

RE: CEC capability of Jensen components

I have a Jensen AWM975 audio/DVD and a Jensen JE1911 TV in my Arctic Fox. Both manuals allude to the possibility of connecting them by CEC and using one remote to control them both. Of course, there are no instructions. Can anyone tell me how to do this? CEC will be need to be turned on for both devices, so go into the menus and find the option to enable. The devices will need to be connected by an HDMI cable, with a spec level of 1.3 or better. (Look for cables claiming to support 3D) After all of this, CEC will let you use the play / stop / pause (etc) buttons on your TV remote to control the DVD player. It should also turn your TV on and select the correct input automatically when you turn on your DVD player, and turn off the DVD player when you turn off the TV.

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Buy a REAL brand name.. in car stereos names like Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Clarion, Sony come to mind.. You had me until you mentioned Sony... Point was EVEN a Sony would be better than a Jensen.. :B

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Anyone add this into their rig or have a newer rig with this system installed? I was thinking about adding (replacing our existing radio) this to our rig, but at ~$500 it is an update that needs to be sure we want and know that it is a good system. Our current radio is a piece of turd and doesn't work well at all. I have done some reading the trade rags and it seems to get some decent reviews. Thanks Specs Sales Page Replace a junk with another junker :h Jensen brand name anything is garbage (albeit EXPENSIVE garbage). Buy a REAL brand name.. in car stereos names like Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Clarion, Sony come to mind.. You can get any of those brands in car stereos with DVD player built in.. YES, I realize car stereos do not offer SURROUND sound.. But really, you are in a RV not a home theater.. A lot of the "surround" noise will be placed too close to you since speaker placement for CORRECT timing is less than optimal in a RV. However pretty much any car stereo of any of those brands WILL offer SUBWOOFER OUTPUTS which you simply add an amplifier and subwoofer.. The subwoofer is what most folks are looking for and is easy to hook up with a car stereo now days. If you really must have surround sound then buy a NAME BRAND HOME Theater system which has built in DVD plus amps and runs from 120V AC. To use with no shore power you simply use an inverter...

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Personally I would go with a head unit designed for a car. Much better quality and far less expensive. I put a Blaupunkt head unit in my old trailer and I loved it, but that was back before MP3s, etc. When my current Jensen dies it's getting replaced with a "real" head unit that has DVD and MP3 capability.

RE: Looking for suggestions on new DVD AM/FM stereo

I just went through what you are due to a mis wired pedestal. When I went to replace the Home theater in a box system I found out Best Buy and 3 outher electronic stores did not have one that fit in my cabinet. I settled on a Jensen DV2011 that I found on Amazon. Since then Jensen has come out with a JWM990 that would have fit. I priced it out through Forest River. They wanted over $900.00 Priced it direct with ASA Electronics. They wanted over $450.00. C.B.

Looking for suggestions on new DVD AM/FM stereo

This past weekend a lightning storm took out our RCA all in one AM/FM CD DVD player in our 5th. It worked very well up to that point, so I may just try and replace it with the same. (It is a regular electronics piece, NOT something like a Jensen that fits into a particular spot) But I was wondering if anyone has any upgrade ideas. Another combination system would be great, especially if there is one with bluray. It would need to fit into a space about 6 inches by 18 inches. It would need to have surround sound and HDMI output.

RE: Good 12v dc TV

Thanks for all of the ideas. I know in the past I had a Sharp TV and the output of the brick was 12VDC but I was never brave enough to cut the cord and wire it to the 12V directly. Also at that time everybody was saying not to do it. I guess it is off to Best Buy to buy 2 new TVs. Just what I wanted to do after buying a new MH that listed for over $120,000, is go out and buy new TVs for it. The front one was standard but the rear one was over $400 option. How do they charge so much for a 22” HDTV. Why don’t they just leave them out and let us buy our own. Put the wiring in for them and let us install ones to our liking. It seems that they all have a love affair with Jensen garbage (in my opinion). Just like the stereo units they put in them, again they are Jensen’s, supposedly they are built to stand the up to driving down the road. I don’t believe this as I have used Sharp TVs for years and they worked just fine and I took them out and used them in the house. In fact my wife is still using a Sharp in her sewing room and this TV was bought over 13 years ago and traveled many mile in the back of a 5th wheel and never had one trouble and it has a great viewing width. Why do the manufactures put such garbage in the units? I guess I’ll answer that myself, because we buy it with this garbage. I have to take the MH into a dealer to get the power skylight fixed. It sounds like the gears are stripped. It worked on the walk through on Wednesday morning and didn’t on Thursday evening. Gives me great confidence that it is going to work for years. I think once it is fixed I’ll just leave it closed and never use it. When I’m in the dealer with this problem I’m going to complain about the TVs. I know it won’t do any good but it will let me vent a little. Ok enough of the complaining, thanks for the ideas.

Good 12v dc TV

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good 12v DC TV. I bought a new MH and it has 2 Jensen 12v in it and they are about the sorriest excuse for a HDTV that I have every seen. If you are not sitting directly in front of the TV you can hardly see anything but just some black and a little color. If you stand up you can't see it either, like I say you have to be straight in front of it. I had a Jensen in my past RV and we could view it from almost any angle. The TV in the bedroom is just ok if on one side of the bed but just on the other side you can't even see it. I tried looking at it receiving over the air at first and thought it was just bad so put a DVD in the player and it was just as bad. The front one is a 24" and the rear one is 22" Thanks.

RE: Jensen awm975

If you Jensen lasted longer than ours (a couple of months) before you started having problems with it then you had had better luck than we did. I have come to believe that the basic Jensen systems that they put in RV's are complete junk... Sorry I didn't help with your question...just commenting on my experience.

Jensen awm975

My Jensen will only play two tracks on a cd then shut off. I have reset the unit and called Jensen. They don't have clue. Of course there is only a one year warranty. Any one have any ideas? dvd will play and radio works fine. Thanks

RE: anyone tried wireless HDMI

Why don't you try and run the HDMI cable and loomex through the ceiling? I've been able to run co-ax, low voltage and 120 volt in the ceiling from one end of our TT to the other without great difficulty. If you take down speakers, AC and skylight bezels, AC grilles and lights, you can fish cable from one access hole to the next access hole until you get where you need to be. If you are stuck part way, you can go up and down inside cabinets and horizontally as well. Upper wall cabinets usually have a 1-1.5" space on the bottom and you can run cables and wiring in there. You can also cut a small hole on the ceiling inside a cabinet to get access. In 3 TTs now, I haven't been stuck in running wiring through the ceiling to where I wanted it. If you have a go at it, you'll be surprised at what you can do. Our 2014 KZ TT came with a nice 32" TV that can accept component, composite and HDMI inputs. But the Jensen radio/DVD player only has a composite output. Why do they do this? I will upgrading to HDMI too but will have to ditch the Jensen. BTW, I just noticed you are in Abbotsford, just down the street from us in Langley. If I can help you at all, send me a PM.
