Using aft cabin TV

Postby Kikaboo » Fri Aug 11, 2017 7:57 pm

On my 32 we ordered the aft cabin TV. Waste of money never used it once in 2.5 years until now.
Pulled it off the mount and moved it topside as a portable.
Connected my Roku and about to watch Game of Thrones.

I finally have a use for this TV. It's both 120ac and 12dc but if I go DC I will need some other device to stream to it that would also need to be 12vdc. For now I am good dockside.

Look at the power brick for the roku and see what it puts out. It very well could be 12v already, in which case you just need to make a wiring harness to plug into a 12v outlet.

No real brick on the Roku but the output of the plug says 5v

5v is USB adapter voltage. You could probably get a 12v USB adapter and modify it to work, as long as the input power requirement (amp or watts) is less than what the USB adapter can put out.
