Question about HP Expresscard TV Tuner For Windows Vista (RM436AA#ABA)

1 Answer

Is there such a thing as a co-ax cable to input converters?

I believe my co-ax hook up on my tv is going bad because it is a little fuzzy and the cable runs off the co-ax cable. When I play a DVD which runs off the inputs it is clear. Is there a product out there that will allow me to plug the co ax cable into it and convert that to using the inputs? Thanks

Before you go that far, realize that the cable itself may be the problem. Usually poor picture quality can be traced to poor cable connections. Also, another possibility is poor connections inside the tuner of the set. I assume that you are using a cable box. Some of the newer boxes have direct video connections which will connect as you describe. Check the condition of all of the cables and connectors before yo invest in anything.

Keep us posted.

Do they make a adaptor that goes from coax to hdmi or video plugs


No - co-ax is used to carry a signal at RF level while HDMI is audio/video.

A co-ax socket can be replaced by any qualified technician

Going from cable to coby converter box


cONNECT A REGULAR OR DIGITAL ANTENNA TO THE rf INPUT ON THE coby..
Do one or both of following.:
Connect rf output from copy to rf input of TV. (set both units to channel 3, or 4 --must match)
or connect three RCA connectors (either three cables or single cable with Yellow-Red and White connectors) to the matching
connectors on TV and COBY.

This might involve DISCONNECTING some connection from cable box.... but you may decide to keep both connected ( one item to each option as described above. ) The signals from the RED WHITE and YELLOW systems will be available on the TV when you set the TV for LINE input ( there might be more than one choice of LINE-IN selections on some TVs.

I have a apex tv and a dvd/vhs recorder, with a cable from wall only, how do I install


If you wish to record (VHS) off cable :
First connect the co-ax cable from the wall to the input on the DVD/VHS , then connect a second from the output of the DVD/VHS to the input of the TV.
You will need to match the channel (3/4) output and input. There should be a switch on the back of the DVD/VHS.
Tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 to match, To watch DVD/VHS .
Channel selection will be with the DVD/VHS when it is powered on.
TV will tune to channel when the DVD/VHS is off.

I just purchased a ge amplifier antenna for my magnavox tv and i am only receiving 1 channel and its very fuzzy


Your television has generally several receiving modes...such as video 1/2, cable, dvd , satellite, ext antennae. So make sure that it is set on external antennae. Then you will probably need to program in the stations that it is receiving again.. Meaning that ..before bought and installed this product your tv only recognized the channels with reception..now you need to run a new channel scan.. One last thing make sure vcr/dvd/tv button on any other devices you have is in the TV position..or if it is not make sure the signal amp is going into the input plug in the back of that device...rather than directly into the back of your tv... I think the combination of these things will solve your problem. good luck

Yes hello, i'm trying to hook up my Coby 12'1 digital tv to a converter box is that possible or do i need a cable box for it to connect?


You should be able to connect the tv to a converter box. This is good for OTA signals to a TV with an NTSC tuner (coax) or composite video input. http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=prod&prod_num_id=205&pcat_id=2007#features-tab has the manual for the DTV102. Put the antenna coax cable to the converter box ANT In and then either the antenna out to the TV or the A/V (composite) out to the TV's composite in. If you use the RF connection, you will need to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and set the switch on the converter box appropriately. For a composite video connection, you will need to change the input to AV1 (if there are several inputs). Depending on the TV, there may be a source or input button on the TV. For other models this is only on the remote. If you have the original remote, no problem. If you have a universal remote, make sure that you have a key that corresponds to the feature and that you found the code that lets the key work for your TV. (Not all universal remotes have the feature.)

However, you should get the best antenna that you can and have it pointed correctly to receive the stations. Digital signal doesn't have borderline reception. Try antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the stations and directions in your area. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in the channel list that it will indicate you can receive. Tvfool lists the channel reception depending on the antenna type. Tall trees and buildings can block the signal.

I hope this helps.

(please note that surges from the antenna can damage converter boxes and kill the tuner.)

CAN I connect 2 tvs.to one converter box and how.


If you're using a box that has an RF (antenna) output on channel 3 or 4 to the TV, you can insert a splitter and feed two sets. A splitter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_10.jpg

It takes the signal in on the single connector side, and splits it between the two output jacks on the other side. You can find splitters at TV retailers, Radio Shack, and even at Home Depot or similar stores in the electrical section. Run a cable from each of the output jacks to the antenna connectors on the two TV sets. Each TV will need to be tuned to the converter box output channel, and both sets will get the same program (whatever channel you have selected on the converter).

If the converter box has audio and video output jacks and the nearest set has an AV input, you can connect that set with the same kind of cable you use to hook up a DVD player (RCA plugs on the ends) and select the AV input to see the converter box signal. You would run a cable from the RF output connector of the converter to the second set's antenna jack. Then you wouldn't need the splitter, and the set using the AV inputs would get better quality picture and sound. Again, each set will get the same program as determined by the converter.

Hope this is what you need to get going. Thanks for using Fixya!

Have Problems with getting Channels?


You've not given us the manufacturer, make and model number, but I see 3 analog inputs on the left and the usb on the right. This tells me the analog audio and video signals must come from a dvd or vcr or tv-tuner. You say getting channels, so I'm assuming you've not hooked up to a digital ready tv hooked to cable or dish or digital converter. THERE ARE NO MORE ANALOG SIGNAL CHANNELS ANYMORE. Everything went digital in June 2009. So there you have it. If you don't have usable information going in, you can't get it out. try it with sterio audio and video from a digital tv that is receiving channels, and I think you'd then see sterio and video out of your pc.

Question on adapters for older tvs


What you are looking for is a Coaxial (or F pin cable) to RCA (or Composite) converter. You are going to need an actual converter...not just a cable ...because you actually need to convert the signal.

The biggest question is where do you get one of these things? I found one on line that I think would work for what you need to do. http://www.cablewholesale.com/specs/40x3-30400.htm
Check it out but before you order it, email them and tell them exactly what you want to do...or make sure they have a good return policy in case it doesn't work the way you think. Another option is to go into your local Radio Shack...they may have something that will do the trick.

Good luck!!!
