Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I am trying to set up some kind of wireless network for all of our PCs and DVRs. (Plus, I'd like to take advantage of the HDTV.) Over the years, my girlfriend has bought so many things that she thinks will fix everything. We haven't really tried to put it all together until last week. It's just too much for me to figure out. I'm looking up all the info online- hoping I can find a way to get started. I was just on the Tivo website and figured I should find help before I buy anything else or touch anything yet. I am listing everything we have purchased. It may be too much or too little information. Here's what we got.. TV---Hitachi Ultravision Digital HGTV(SRS and BBE) Two Direct TV Tivo DVRs (seperate models and software) *The larger DVR is a Samsung Series 2 IRD Model: SIR-S4120R Software is 6.2-01-2-381 Recording capacity: 100 hours *The smaller DVR is a RCA Series 2 IRD Model: DSR7000/17 Software VRSN: 6.2-01-2-121 Recording capacity: 35 hours DLink HD Media player (DSM 520 V1.2) Broadband connection with A Netgear RangeMax wireless router (WPN 824 v2 with a PC Card (WPN511) and a USB Adapter (WPN111) We have several PCs, 2 wireless laptops, an external super DVD writer-HP Lightscribe and other external hard drives. Then we have our big PC. It's an HP Pavillion a1620n with Windows XP Media Center. We also have things like a VCR and DVD; plus, every type of cable needed. I'm sure I haven't remembered to list everything. This should be enough to understand my problems. We would like to clean some things off the DVRs and add them to a PC or disk. I don't want to buy another DVR if I can help it. We have service plans with SuddenLink and Direct TV and we know we're paying too much, So we'd like to change our service providers. (I wanted to state that in case it makes a difference with our TiVo DVRs. If ya have any advice, I've got my pen and paper.

It sounds like you have 2 different complicated issues.
First being getting your home audio/video components working together. Secondly getting your internet/computers all networked and communicating with each other.It may be easier if you just list all the devices with make and model in one easy to read list so it can all be broken down. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution and I can gladly assist you further.
Thank you,
lee

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I've tried to set up a Bose remote to my TV and B Ray player. I can get the programme change, menu and the channel guide working but not the volume + or - .I've tried other codes as instructed.


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

How can i turn on my tv without a remote?


It would be helpful if you told us WHAT KIND OF TELEVISION you're trying to turn on. Perhaps there is a POWER BUTTON on the front of whatever television you have?

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.
