Headphones question by [email protected]
I currently have two pair of Sennheiser headphones hooked up to my Sony 4k TV. Earlier this year, when I hooked the second pair up, the volume on both dropped. I posted here, and based on recommendations, I bought a small amplifier which can handle four headphones. The hookup right now is about a...

OT But I need an opinion by [email protected]
I know there is a lot of common sense and brainpower here, so I'd like to ask an OT question. I'm looking for a new computer desk. I see a lot of them I like but they all have a cabinet built in for a CPU tower. The cabinet has a door on it. I'm wondering if there would be any ill effects having...

TV as a monitor? by [email protected]
I'm coming into possession of a Toshiba 32" flat screen TV. It was my mother-in-laws, who is now in a nursing home. The set is maybe two years old. I'm currently using a 24" Dell monitor on my computer. I've been considering a larger monitor and now I'll be picking this Toshiba up. It has HDMI...

Video/color question by [email protected]
I have a Sony 65" 4K TV. The other night I was watching the Washington DC fireworks show I recorded a week ago. At one point, there was a singer, with backup singers performing. The backup singers were all wearing very vivid red flowing tops. I can't describe them better than that. I noticed that...

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]

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...

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.
