What would cause this? by [email protected]
I have a Sony Bravia TV in a corner of my living room. There are archways on either side of it, so I ran a fifty foot cable for headphones from the headphone output of the TV, up through the ceiling behind the TV, across my attic about fifteen feet, and snaked it down through a wall, where it comes...

Newbie questions on using splitters for coax cables... by Ant
Hello. Is it true that coax cable splitters, with many ports (e.g., five ports with one input and four outputs), are not even in each of its port to TVs? If so, then are they all like this by design? I know they lose strengths when splitted, but someone told me that each port is not the same...

Hello. My folks recently bought two new Samsung HDTVs (55" and a 20") to replace their old CRT TVs. I was helping them to set them up. I noticed closed captionings (CCs) sometimes show all texts in all CAPS in some over the air (OTA) Los Angeles/L.A. broadcasts from an outdoor CM 4228HD...

Amplified Splitters: 4-way vs 8-way? by (PeteCresswell)
I'm thinking about replacing a Radio Shack amplified 4-way splitter just on GPs. The thing is quite a few years old, and I'm unable to find the gremlins that are causing pixellation except that they seem tb restricted to my media center's tuners and not the direct-connected TVs. The Question:

How long can coax cables go and any conflicts before HDTV OTA signal losses? by Ant
Hello all. What's the maximum coax cable lengths can be before they start losing signals from HDTV OTA feeds? Also, are there anything that can conflict them? The reason why I am asking because I noticed some rooms, in a big house, can get more channels and better feeds than others. It could...

Amplified Splitters vs Pre-Amps? by (PeteCresswell)
I'm trying to parse this summary from http://tinyurl.com/c6qgenw "Antennas Direct recommends using a pre-Amplifier for outdoor installations or cable runs over 100 ft. A distribution amplifier should be used to make up for loss due to splitting but is not recommended to compensate for long cable...

RG6: In-Line Connector Signal Loss by (PeteCresswell)
New thread for searchability by others who might have the same question. I'm going to re-do a rather heinous splitting scheme and am wondering if there is any profit in buying more cable so the runs are contiguous instead of joined in-line. i.e. Is it worth putting in 100 feet of new...

Is 1080p overkill for a 32" bedroom TV? by Bert[_2_]
Looking for a second TV, to be used almost exclusively for late evening viewing from bed. We only have space for a 32" HD set which will be viewed from a distance of about 12 feet. With a screen of that size viewed from that distance, would we see any real difference with 1080i satellite...

Why would they recommend that..doesn't it depend on your cable plan and whatever you get is what is for that plan? So what good would autoscan do?

Monitor prices by [email protected]
Just wondering about something. I currently have a 24" Dell monitor and I was toying with the idea of a larger monitor, a 32 inch one. Just idle mind wandering. But when I started looking around, the prices scared me off. Why is it that I can find monitors up to around 27 inches for under $300 but...

I am looking for a quality HDTV for my "frugal" elderly parent, who just wants to be able to watch TV for free after buying the TV (and does not have/want internet/cable). I am not sure whether the following HDTV would be too much TV and many of the features (internet, etc.) will not be taken...

Cox version of URC-8820 Remote? by Jim Thompson
I cannot get the _Cox_version_ of the URC-8820 Remote (made by UEI) to program. Cox "Support" is inhabited by slugs, and any question to UEI gets kicked back to "ask Cox" :-( (The Cox "documentation" is limited to device on/off numbers.) What I'd like to do is program "Power" to power-up...

Length of HDMI cable between set-top box and TV by Rebel1
The user manual for one of Vizio's TV says this about the HDMI connection between and HDTV set-top box and TV: "To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable that is 10 meters." Normally, I would think that means 10 meters or less. However, a friend recently had a new TV...
