TV problem

Hi Iíve got a 1999 Solaris( t2553). Problem with tv hook ups. I canít use both TVs at the same time. Even got a second antenna so they would be separated. Whatever I do I canít use both TVs at the same time. Help!

Dave

That's really strange. But, I can't say I've ever tried two TVs in there at once. Will they both work on the same channel?

How do you have them hooked up I understand you have two antennas so are they completely separate?

Yes, separate.

Ok here is probably what is happening all receiving devices have internal frequency of their own the antennas have a very broad band receiver amplifier mean they are designed to pickup a huge range of frequencies most likely they are receiving these internal frequence from the other TV that has nothing to do with the broadcast frequencies this is what is known as intermod and the close proximity is just wiping out the broadcast signal. I had a bunch of very nice flush mount LED's that I had to dismantle and make a voltage regulator for the light because the internal switching supply was generating frequencies right in the middle of the FM radio bands that effectively wiped out the FM signal rendering the radio useless with the lights on.

That makes sense. Either one works great. Reception is good but, when both are on they distort. Any idea how to fix this. Thanks.

That's a hard one because you really don't know where it's coming from I suspect it's because the antena amp is picking up noise from the other TV and when the switch for the antenna is on the amps is on. I don't know your camper but if it has two outlet circuits you may try another circuit to plug one of the TV's into that would eliminate one possibility. The antennas are all most worthless without the amplifiers on but you could try it with the switch off on one. Another option would be trying a cheap on the window flat antenna on one TV and the other with the standard antenna. If you read the info on the back of the TV is says "must accept interference from other devices". The last option would be an attenuator between the antenna and the TV cable input.

I have one tv on the camper antenna(amp on). The other antenna is just attached to the bedroom tv with no amp. I think both TV sets are on the same 110 volt circuit. Both sets work great on their own but, if both are turned on at the same time they both go fuzzy.

Ok let me get this straight you have two roof antennas assuming RV types yes? If you have 2 TV's connected to the internal camper jack they are connected to the same antenna there are two outputs on the TV control box (the one with the switch).

NO this is all wrong. Let me try again. I have 2 TVs each on a separate antenna. Front tv on that roof antenna. Bedroom tv is on a separate antenna. Neither one is on a control box ( whatever that is ). I think they are both on the same ac circuit.

If you have an RV antenna the small switch on the panel with the lighter socket is for the antenna amp the amp is inside of the antenna on the roof. So with the amp on that is probably what the issue is Without the switch being on the antenna it is pretty much useless. Some campers had two antenna jacks both came from the same control box same antenna they all came with two outputs but not necessarily wired my little T1700 has two outputs only one is connected. The one with a separate antenna what is the antenna it is connected to? Don't run out and buy this just yet but it may fix your issue https://www.solidsignal.com/pview.as...iABEgJ9zfD_BwE
I am a ham radio operator I am the one that takes care of our clubs 3 transmitters and have close ties to the two way radio business what you are experiencing is intermodulation it is the bain of the two way industry it is widespread and there is all kinds of gadgets we have to use to eliminate this problem so I am sympathetic to your problem.
