Television Control Box
I'm having issues with my front television not getting a signal. I'm pretty sure the small boxes up in the cabinet are the issue.

If I unplug them for a little while the front tv gets signal for a while.

1. What are they called?
2. Are they resettable, a fix or something.
3. Where would I buy them?

Let's isolate the issue with more details first:
  1. Are you using Satellite, Cable, or Over the Air (OTA)? or is it with any and all sources?
  2. Are the other TV's working from the same source, i.e. Televator or Exterior TV? (Bedroom is separate typically)
  3. Are all cables secure from HDMI to COAX connections?
The coax on the front TV is likely on the bottom so you can check security there. If you need to get to the back of the TV you have to carefully remove the wooden grill which Newmar silicones in place.

We are using Satellite, we have a Trav'ler and a Hopper II which is plumbed to the outside tv, dash TV and the main TV. The TV in the bedroom is unplugged and has been since we bought it as well as the TV outside.

We got to the RV Park on Tuesday all was well. Friday morning I turned on the dash tv and it said no signal, the main TV worked fine. I checked the cables and didn't find anything, I unplugged the boxes I'm referring to and when I plugged them back in all was well. A little later the dash tv said no signal.
That's why I am assuming the box(s) are going out.

We're back home now and all is working fine. Absolutely no idea what has/hasn't changed.
