How do I connect a playstation to a GE19gt319 that don't have rca plug ins?


If the TV only has a coax input, you'll need an RF modulator that converts composite audio and video to RF. (Something like this: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 ) . Then plug in the RCA cables (three plugs: yellow, red and white) from the playstation to the modulator and the coaxial cable between the modulator and the TV. (Note: the composite video is an SD signal.)

I hope this helps.

How do you solve a Bluetooth Dongle Problems?


<p>Bluetooth wireless technology allows many devices to connect wirelessly to computers, keyboards, mice, speakers and even other computers. Most desktop computers come with Bluetooth pre-installed adapters, allowing many to purchase and install an external Bluetooth dongle adapter. These dongles are usually connected to an available USB port and automatically installs without much fuss, but there is the possibility of going wrong, because usually when people and computers interact. Fortunately, hiccups are usually quite easy to solve. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Unplug the dongle on the computer using the "Wizard Safely Remove Hardware". Look for an icon in the Windows taskbar that looks like a USB connector with a green circle and check mark next to it. Wait a few minutes, and then reinsert it. This will cause the drivers are loaded on your computer and your problem. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Restart the computer; make sure the dongle is working properly. Some drivers need to restart your computer before working properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Download and install the latest drivers for your Bluetooth dongle. If you are unsure of where to get it, Windows can do it for you. Open "Control Panel" menu "Start," click "Hardware and Sound" and then "Device Manager". Expand the Bluetooth Radios section "from the list that appears, right click on the Bluetooth adapter, and select" Update Driver ". Select" Search automatically for updated driver software. " <br /> <p><br /> <p> <p>4. Then remove, reinstall the Bluetooth dongle. Right-click on the Bluetooth dongle "Bluetooth Radios" from the "Device Manager" and select "Uninstall." Remove the dongle from your computer, restart the computer. Connect the dongle back and reinstall drivers for Windows.

Have a new Lenovo C315 with TV tuner (Avermedia A317 mini pci hybrid) - but the connector in the back of the PC for the antenna is nothing that I am familiar with. How am I supposed to connect my TV...


I have the same C315. It was supposed to ship with a proprietary dongle that connects to the TV port and converts it to a standard coaxial cable input. I never received the dongle either and am fighting with Lenovo to get them to ship one to me. I was initially told that I had to return the computer to Lenovo and they would ship me a new C315 as they had no means to send me ONLY the tv dongle. Well the new unit arrived WITHOUT THE DONGLE again. I share your frustration.

My digital tv tuner converter box with analog Zenith converter bo


Most DTV converter boxes have 2 outputs available; RF and component video. The RF goes in between the antenna and the TV and acts as a frontend tuner. The TV needs to be set to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on the box) and left there. All tuning is then by the converter box. By the way, you need to scan for channels as part of the setup. The other method is by using the audio/video component inputs to the TV and the set would then select AUX 1 or 2 etc to get the box input, and tune via the box.

Teac USB2 TV TUNER Video Capture


Hi Betty, First of all, this tuner requires that your laptop support USB 2.0, if your laptop is fairly new (made within the last 2 years) you should have no problem. Make sure you install the software first, and then plug in the USB cable from the tuner to your laptop. Your laptop should see it, and install it automatically. Then plug the s-video cable from your VCR to your TV tuner. Also connect the audio cables (white and red cables) from the VCR to the tuner. That's it. Please let us know how this works for you, and if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards, nightdiver
