RE: tv tuner

My guess is that you don't have the settings correct on the non-working TV. Since it works with 1 TV but not the other, it has nothing to do with cabling or your booster. It certainly could be the TV tuner. If so, you need a new TV.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

You do understand that no one here, or anywhere, requires that you click on this link, right? I am often off put by his completely unnecessary and off-topic posts but this thing is going to be some kind of a Mad Max RV when completed and I remain interested to see just how far off the grid he will take this thing.

RE: Closing campgrounds and no where to go

All rest areas and turnpike service areas were open along our travels. The food service were To-Go only but still available. In the rest areas, only the parking area was open. Everything else, including the restrooms, was closed.

RE: Closing campgrounds and no where to go

Plenty of open campgrounds as well. 3rd night stop. 3rd open campground. No issues. They have all been no-touch with has been a bonus. Just pick up the envelope with your info, get to the site and wash your hands well. Leaving Kansas tomorrow for Denver! Athens, GA to Denver, CO, no problems.

RE: Reintroduction, shopping for a 10 to 20 y-o DP

There are some seriously awesome older Prevost coaches available in the $100,000 range. They are still fully supported and they are completely awesome! There is simply no better full-timers coach than a Prevost IF (big IF) you are committed to a Class A.

RE: Closing campgrounds and no where to go

We are currently traveling coast to coast and have not yet found a closed campground. If your preferred campground is closed, call another. I was pleased to find that the overnight campgrounds we have visited over the last 2 days, they both had "touchless" check in. Worked great!

RE: Is it time to trip

Rule #1....People die. Rule #2....Doctors can't change rule #1. Am I doing what I can to keep from getting sick? You bet ya! Am I really going to stay in my house and avoid all outside human contact? Nope. I am still hopeful the company will release be from my current job so I can get to Stone Mountain campground and enjoy a week or so of peaceful relaxation.

RE: tax writeoffs for full timers who work from road

I traveled in my RV for over 12 years and wrote off nearly every expense. I could verify the travel was required. We traveled from RV show to RV show and setup a booth and sold our goods. If that's the kind of business you are doing then it's pretty simple. If you plan to sell stuff on E-Bay and you claim all of your travels and camping were a required part of your business, you are either going to have to pay and pay and pay or go to jail!

RE: Is it time to trip

Is it this the time to trip low traffic, low fuel costs, no virus. :) It would not be recommended to travel among others if from a state with high coronavirus contamination such as WA, CA, NY, et. al. areas; regardless the low prices to travel. We already have a patient in out area that travel from WA where they contacted the virus. The purpose of limiting travel, gatherings and social distancing is to stop the spread of the virus until there is someway to medically treat it. Our area is closed to all outsiders except property owners and necessary employees and insiders are limited in travel also. Those who would risk spreading a serious and deadly virus among the population for the love of pleasure and travel need to rethink their priorities. As long as you observe social separation then it does not matter where you come from. If you pull into a campground and expect a hug or a handshake you will likely be very disappointed! If you make reservations at a campground and you are socially responsible you will be able to stay clear of others and you will be in the BEST possible location to avoid cross-contamination. Open air spaces are the 2nd best place to be, 2nd only to complete isolation. Keep your distance, light a fire and enjoy life the way it was meant to be enjoyed! Camp on!

RE: Closed campgrounds

Stone Mountain GA campground is open. The attractions are closed but that's OK. There's really no reason to close any campground as it's likely some of the best social separation available. Open air and long distances are exactly what stops this virus! Book it online, wave HI as you go by, pull into your site and light a campfire. Just doesn't get any better than that. As a side note, I mention Stone Mountain as I "had" reservations there arriving next Monday. Things at work went completely sideways with this disaster and I could not leave work. Stone Mountain refunded my reservation fee without hesitation and we hope to visit again as soon as things stabilize in the next couple of weeks.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

Unfortunately, even if you get an HD receiver which is capable of High Def, if you are using a dome, the dome can only receive SD programming and the picture will be small and it will be [email protected] However, it will be a more simple setup as you just select the appropriate HDMI input. That will also allow you to connect your existing OTA TV antenna to that one coax connection, do a new channel scan and you will be able to watch all of your favorite local TV channels in FULL HD! The OTA TV is the VERY BEST TV viewing available as it is not compressed like the other options. Want to watch the Super Bowl and you have Cable or DTV or DISH? Switch to the OTA antenna for a substantially better picture! If I read you last post correctly there appeared to be a complement in there. If so, many thanks!

RE: class a motorhome tires

You mention Firestone so just wanted to add that they are very good as well.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

If those are the options, then the Watch Free would be where you want to start. You should find the scan channels option there.

RE: Replacement for Concord Electric Series 90 TV Antenna

The antenna appears to be 47.6" long.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

Cloud Dancer. You only need one coax input for your TV to work properly with a DirecTV receiver, assuming the DTV receiver has ONLY a coax output and that coax output reads something like Sat. Out or Out to TV. In the TV settings you should be able to select various input options like HDMI 1,HDMI 2, Antenna (or TV) and likely a couple of other options. You need to select the Antenna option (not cable) and with the DirecTV box on do a NEW Channel scan (search or similar). When it's complete it should show it found only a couple of channels (maybe only 1). Pushing the channel up/down button should get you to channel 3.0 or 4.0 which is where the DTV receiver output will be found.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

Wait Wait, you cannot connect a DirecTV receiver to a new tv using the coax port. The coax port is for OTA antenna or un-encripted cable only. The DirecTV receiver must be connected to the tv via a HDMI port. The tuner connected to the coax port in the tv cannot decode the signal from any DirecTV receiver. This post is incorrect. Please ignore.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

Unless you are using a really old SD only receiver (D10, D12 Rxx) the receiver should have an HDMI output. If that's what you are using then you need to run the coax from the receiver to the TV coax input and then do a new channels scan while the receiver is turned on and connected. The DTV receiver will be found on channel 3 analog (sometimes 4). If the TV you bought does not scan for analog channels you will not be able to use it with that old receiver. You best bet (in all cases) is to update your receiver to an H series receiver. If you use a dome in your RV then you want to get an H24 or HR24 if you want a DVR. If you have a Trav'ler or use a ground mounted tripod then get a Genie HR54.
