When traveling, sometimes what you want to watch on television is not what the kids, your husband or wife or other travel companions want to watch. Because of this, your RV entertainment center offers you the ability to control what signals are fed into the two different parts of the RV – the front and the back. Using the RV entertainment center controls at the front of the unit, you will be able to control whether or not a television is receiving signals from the antenna, an auxiliary feed or the VCR/DVD player.

With an RV entertainment center control box your unit can receive a signal through an antenna feed that can be routed to either the front or the back television in the RV. You can also choose to connect to an auxiliary source which can be used to connect to campground feeds or to a satellite dish.

Though not very popular, the RV entertainment center will have a switch to send the signal from a VCR to the televisions. When sending the signal to the front television you will have the option to record something from the antenna or auxiliary connection. In most models, only the front television source will allow the record feature with a DVD player to be used.

Depending upon your RV entertainment center control panel model, you can opt to replace the VCR with a DVD player. However, there will not be an option to record from an outside source when connecting with a DVD player.

The RV entertainment center makes it very convenient and possible to watch two different feeds on different televisions. It is a great way to give the kids their space in the back of the RV where they can watch their favorite cartoons, while the parents relax in the dining or living room area of the unit.

    What is the best way to update an existing system like this to a newer flat-screen and HDMI blue-ray/DVD player? Is there a newer entertainment center to replace this? Would you have to run HDMI all the way from the front to the back TV?

      Hi Cheri,
      To get the true effect of Blue Ray, you would need to run HDMI cable to the back TV, however I’m not sure you’ll be able to see that much difference with a smaller TV that would be in the bedroom? Since you did not say what year the coach is, I don’t know if you have RG6 or older RG59 coax cable. One way to run cable is to install it through the upper cabinets where the sidewall meets the roof and cover it with wood trim from a home repair store. They make a 1” that has a rounded edge that would hide the cable very well. This can also be used in areas that the cabinet stops and the cable would be exposed.
