If i understand you right, you are playing your CD from your computer. If this is correct, you should burn your cd's into MP3 format with windows media center. Then let you Control 4 system get your music through your network.(you will need to call your Control4 dealer to setup this.) You should use a network hard drive to save you music to. but it can be done with only your computer. If you use your computer you need to make sure that your computer stays on, so turn off the screen saver and your power standby and hibernate options.

I accidently put the rca wires in the wrong audio input/output on my craig cd graphics karaoke player.Could this be why i have no sound?


The RCA outs are designed to send a signal to an external amplifier. That amplifier, in turn, sends the music signal to speakers.
The RCA inputs are designed to take audio signals from another device (like an ipod, CD Player, or computer) and play it through the Craig System speakers. If you sing into the microphone, the vocals will be mixed with the incoming music. However, in these cases, there won't be lyrics on the screen. If you play a karaoke DVD in a DVD player, connect the red, white and yellow RCA cables from the DVD out to the Craig Inputs, the lyrics should appear on the Craig screen while the music plays.
If you mistakenly plug RCA cables into the Craig Inputs and plug the other end into an amplifier's inputs, neither will produce any sound.
Using RCA outs is only necessary if you want to have louder music than the on-board Craig speakers can handle. Of course, you can run the yellow video cable to a TV RCA input to get a bigger lyrics window and the RED and White RCA to the TV RCA Red and White inputs to hear the music through the TV's speakers.

Function keys not working on hp probook 4440


Identifying the hot keys
A hot key is a combination of the fn key and either the esc key or one of the function keys.
To use a hot key:
Briefly press the fn key, and then briefly press the second key of the hot key combination.
Hot key combination Description
fn+esc Displays information about system hardware components and the system BIOS version number.
fn+f1 Initiates Sleep, which saves your information in system memory. The display and other system
components turn off and power is conserved.
To exit Sleep, briefly press the power button.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of information loss, save your work before initiating Sleep.
fn+f2 Decreases the screen brightness level.
fn+f3 Increases the screen brightness level.
fn+f4 Switches the screen image among display devices connected to the system. For example, if a
monitor is connected to the computer, fn+f4 alternates the screen image from computer display to
monitor display to simultaneous display on both the computer and the monitor.
Most external monitors receive video information from the computer using the external VGA video
standard. The fn+f4 hot key can also alternate images among other devices that are receiving video
information from the computer.
fn+f5 Initiates the QuickLock security feature. QuickLock protects your information by displaying the
operating system Log On window. While the Log On window is displayed, the computer cannot be
accessed until a Windows user password or a Windows administrator password is entered.
NOTE: Before you can use QuickLock, you must set a Windows user password or a Windows
administrator password. For instructions, see Help and Support. To access Help and support, from
the Start screen, type help, and then select Help and Support.
fn+f6 Displays charge information for all installed batteries. The display indicates which batteries are
charging and reports the amount of charge remaining in each battery.
fn+f7 Mutes or restores speaker sound.
fn+f8 Decreases speaker volume.
fn+f9 Increases speaker volume.
fn+f10 Plays the previous track of an audio CD or the previous section of a DVD or a BD.
32 Chapter 4 Pointing devices and keyboardHot key combination Description
fn+f11 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD, a DVD, or a BD.
fn+f12 Plays the next track of an audio CD or the next section of a DVD or a BD.

TV CONTROL ON SAME FREQUENCY AS BOSE, HOW DO I CHANGE THE FREQUENCY TO STOP THE BOSE SYSTEM FROM RESPONDING TO MY TV REMOTE


Go through the BOSE manual to see if another channel can be chosen to control the system. If not, try and locate them farther apart and shield the remote with your hand to avoid signal from getting to the unwanted device.

Which function key allows to switch to tv


Hi there,
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4    ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center fn + f2 Opens print options window fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser fn + f4 Switches the image among displays fn + f5 Initiates Standby fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness fn + f8 Increases screen brightness fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
