How long an HDMI cable can I use? by [email protected]
I'm getting a new computer put together. The video card will have an HDMI output. My TV is on the other side of the wall from my computer. All my components are hardwired to my router, ie Roku, Blu-ray DVD player, TV. All those cables are 25'. I'd like to also run an HDMI cable from the computer...

UHF Antenna Distribution Amplifier by Steve Urbach
I have roof mounted antennas for 2 antenna distributions in my house. The 6-way splitter inserts 9db loss so I added a 10db antenna Amp commonly found in the TV sections of hardware/home electronic stores. Needless to say, they are losing more than they gain, so I opened them up (2 different...

Not TV related by [email protected]
But I figure there are many techies here who might be able to answer this. I have a small deck down from my back door where we spend a lot of time. I'd like to put a handset from my wireless phone system permanently out there during the nice months. I've been looking for weatherproof phone...

Aspect Ratios On TV Programs' Embedded Clips?? by (PeteCresswell)
Over-and-over again I see TV shows broadcast at 16:9 that include clips from the days before DTV and the clips' aspect ratios are wrong on-screen. i.e. the 5:4 or 4:3 or whatever is stretched out so everybody's face is way wide. This is so pervasive that I have to think there is a bigger problem...

Lip Synch: Can somebody explain..... by (PeteCresswell)
.... why lip synchronization is still a problem with digital TV? OK... I think I understand that voice and video are separate "Files" so-to-speak... But what's the problem with getting them in sync at the studio instead of my having to fiddle with my TV and still not get it quite right? I don't...

TV Commercials by [email protected]
I've been wondering, are TV commercials synched to happen at the same time across the channels? Being a card carrying channel surfer, I can't help but notice that when I'm watching something and and commercial starts, I can go to four, five or more other channels and they all also have commercials...

How do you get HD by Seymore4Head
I subscribe to Charter. My set top HD box connects to charter with a standard coax cable and to the TV with a HDMI cable. I use a RF modulator to connect to the HD box's extra output Red/White/Yellow. The output of the RF modulator is connected to several TVs using coax. One of the TVs connected...

Hearing voices! by [email protected]
I was watching TV this evening, a cable connection, and wearing headphones as my wife was asleep. I paused the TV to getup for a minute and hadn't taken the headphones off yet and though I heard very soft voices. I thought maybe my wife had woken up and had the TV in the bedroom on, but that wasn't...

DVD to computer? by [email protected]
How would I do this? I'm looking at a Western Digital WDTV unit: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=1270 I have a Roku 3 which I guess this WD TV is similar to, but the WD TV allows one to access files on the computer through the network. I've read in some reviews of how people are...

Headphone question by [email protected]
Probably a stupid question to the more technically savvy here but I'm not one of them. I have a Sony Bravia TV to which I've had a pair of Senheisser heaphones hooked up. That's about the only way I listen, as we live about 200 feet from an Interstate and the noise, especially when the windows are...

Average TV Set's Audio vs Kleer, DSSS, BlueTooth ? by (PeteCresswell)
My ancient-and-honorable Radio Shack wireless headphones are on the way out. Been shopping replacements and it occurs to me that maybe, above a certain fidelity level, additional sound quality in a wireless headset might be wasted because it would exceed what's coming out of the TV. A Vizio Razor...

TV with USB ports by [email protected]
I've been pondering this for a few days. I have a Sony Bravia TV with two USB ports. I currently have a flash drive with music and photos plugged in and it works fine, finding folders and then the music or pictures within the folders. I got to wondering If I could buy an external USB hard drive and...

Sound Bar Question by [email protected]
Probably a stupid question but indulge me. I'm going to buy my Mom a 40" Sony HDTV to replace the old 27" CRT set she's had for years. She's extremely hard of hearing. She has to have the volume maxed out to hear the TV. I know from experience that the speakers on the new flat panel TV's leave a...
