Default TV help please

I see a similar thread but not the answers I was looking for. First off I find it odd that Gulfstream does not keep up with the technology. We have a red yellow and white plug for hooking the TV into the DVD player of the radio. We go out and buy a brand new smart television and there are no plugs to accommodate those red yellow and white cables. It appears there is no way to make the DVD player work with a new television. There is no HDMI connection on the factory radio / DVD player. Is there any way to overcome this? I guess other than putting an old outdated television in the camper. It is disappointing to buy a brand new camper thinking that things should be up-to-date and find out that they are not.

Izzy,


Your link shows the conversion of an HDMI output from a source to a legacy composite video and analog stereo output suitable for an older TV/monitor.


I believe that USA1 needs the opposite conversion -- taking the legacy output of the DVD player and making it suitable for a modern TV that has only HDMI inputs. When I updated the electronics in my 2007 Tour Master T40c, I replaced the Sony DVD player/surround unit with a newer Blu-Ray combo Sony model of similar footprint that had HDMI outputs. This did not help the bedroom TV since the chassis wiring in the coach is all composite and not digital, so a small separate HDMI capable player back there solved that issue. See attached image.


If you really need a composite --> HDMI conversion gadget, they are available but are limited to 1080P resolution (not the 4K of true Bu-ray...) Here is a typical one:

Izzy,

What Sony unit did you purchase? I'm in the same boat... literally and figuratively. 2007 Tour Master T40C

Kevin,


I am the one that upgraded my Sony player to DVD and HDMI. The unit is sold as a "home theater in a box" grouping and I just did not use the speakers (used the ones already installed in the coach...)


The Sony model number is BDVE3100 and you can find some information here:

Chuck,

You wouldn't happen to have any documentation for the AV Center in the T40C would you? Absent the original Sony DVD player/surround sound unit I'm at a loss as to what connections need to go where.

Kevin,


Here is a diagram that shows what most coaches of this ere had in the way of connections...sorry it is not very specific to the Tour Master, but should apply.
