Cannot find this anywhere.  Next to the bedroom TV is installed a multi function Boss player.  Supposedly it plays DVDs, CDs, mpeg and a number of configurations.  Tried a CD and nothing happened.  So I read the Boss book which said to play a CD you must first turn on the TV.  The screen will turn grey and the music will play.  Well the screen turned grey but no music.

Right now the rear TV works with the roof antenna and I am reluctant to mess around with the settings on the TV till I know what to do.  Thought someone who has a recent 2551 with the Boss could tell me.  There is no mention of it anywhere.  Is it part of the surround sound?  Is it just a separate DVD player for the rear TV? 

Anne ThankYou

Hi Anne,

It is a separate DVD/CD player just for the rear TV, you have to change the source input on the TV to the DVD player.  There are two source inputs, one is the DVD player and the other is the coax from the front that will display the antenna or cable input.  The source input can be changed using buttons on the TV or the remote.

Bob,

Thanks, Bob.  I will try it in the morning.  Too many new electronics etc.  I sort of figured it was a spare DVD for the bedroom TV but when it said it played mpeg and CDs and you can even plug your Ipod into it, I figured I better check that it was not part of the surround sound system as opposed to the rear TV system.

Wonder how many other West Coasters there are? Wink

Thanks again.

You are in a beautiful part of California.   I used to take my kids camping in Yosemite years ago when I was a single mother.  Bet it has changed since then.  That was back in the early 70's.  We started in the Camp Curry section and graduated to tent camping with our VW bug with the tent and cooler strapped to the roof.

We thought we were in hog heaven with out Pinto wagon and two single mattress. Could not believe how great it was when we "upgraded" to our first 16 foot trailer. A lot has changed around the area. Two stop lights in Oakhurst. At coffee on morning one fellow said, I remember one stop light in town. We have lived in the aera, on and off since 1949. I told him I remembered driving thru Oakhurst at 70 mph. There was NOTHING there.

Boy, you probably remember when the main campground in Yosemite Park wasn't so crowded that you could stretch out your arms and not touch the camper next door, you could drive in and out without a traffic jam, George Lucas was still a teen age hotrodder in Modesto, and the Casa de Fruta was only a little roadside stand!   I wish it was all that way again.

We wrestled with the Boss player and just figured it didn't add to our usage. I took out but left access to cables, just pushed up and out of way.

Then took the TV out and turned the wooden panel that the TV was attached to around so that it was a shelf that raises and lowers. I place my lap top there and use it with a blue tooth key board and touch pad. It makes for a nice location to either blog from or watch videos and uses the electrical hook up.

I finally got it to play CDs.  You turn the TV on and select the video input and a big colorful Boss sign shows up and the CD plays music.  Only problem with that is it only plays through the small TV.  So I guess we will save it for playing DVDs on that TV and save the CDs for the front radio/CD/mpeg player.

Trying to figure out our Home Entertainment system in the 2551.  I found a receptacle for the iPod in the cabinet but I'll be darned if I can make it work.  I tried calling Samsung but never got to talk to anybody. 

Anybody know how to play an iPod.  It says to push Port and chose A ipod.  That's as far as I can get.

OK I took a break and went back out and tackled this project.  Wow what a system.  I now know how to use the iPod on the dock with display on the TV.  Got the remote to be able to change songs and fast forward too.  It can be used with the surround sound which I thought was in the back speakers but it isn't.  All surround sound is in the main room.  Still learning.  Well, that's with exception of the subwoofer in the bedroom area.
