Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
When I first purchased a cable plan I only had one TV in my house and it seemed like a waste to get multiple cable boxes for TV that I had not yet purchased. When the prices came down on TVs I decided that it was time to get a set to go in my bedroom upstairs but I didn't have a cable box to connect to the set.
I could have gone out and spent a $100+ on a new bulky cable box that is not really all that pretty or I could get a video transmitter that will extend my signal to the upstairs TV set for around $50. Even though it takes a little bit of set up the results are great, I can even use the one remote on both television sets.
To set up your video transmitter first you have to take the transmitter and receivers out of the box and make sure that they are both set to the same channel. This will ensure that they will read each other. Then you take the cables that came with the transmitters and connect them to the back of the cable box, matching up the yellow, red and white cables to each other. Position the transmitter box so that it is lined up with the signal transmitter of the cable box.
Then you want to go upstairs to the second TV and connect the receiver to the back of the television set the same way that you connected the transmitter to the cable box. Take the remote from the set downstairs and it should have extended the connection of the cable box to both TV sets. Now you are able to control the cable box from upstairs and watch your stations on both TVs.
