    what actualy was the problem is that the tv has a three prong plug....even though the outlet was three prong untill i took it apart and noticed that it was old two wire type hook up....so thus while plugged into the electric the tv was grounding through the cable.....silly electric!

Danger Danger Will Robinson!!!! Extreme Danger. Your TV has a "Hot Chassis" and when you connect the TV antenna you are Short Circuiting to EARTH. DO NOT USE IT. Take it to a TV repair place. THIS IS LETHAL!! A fault has developed and now the set is "LIVE". BE Careful please this is NO JOKE.

My TV has only one place to connect a co-ax cable...there are no other hook ups


The adapter they sold you is wrong. You will need a device called an RF modulator. This box will have video and left/right audio input plugs and then the output will be co-ax to connect to your TV set. Radio Shack does have them, they run about $30. You will probably have to tell them what it is called because usually they do not have a clue. Just tell them you want an RF modulator part number 15-2526

I have a tv sky box in lounge and 2nd tv in a different room connected by a co ax cable. I need a desription or a diagram to get everything working. It worked prior to having a new carpet fitted and the...


Check first that the Co-Ax cable is firmly plugged into your SKY box in your lounge.
(I'm assuming that the carpet fitters did NOT put a nail thru your co-ax cable or pushed the cable onto any metal carpet grippers???)
If they might have done this accidentally, then, that's why it doesn't work!
Then make sure that the co-ax cable is plugged firmly into your second TV. Sometimes the central connector within the co-axial socket becomes loose and needs nipping back together with a pair of long-nosed pliers.
I'm assuming that you have plugged the Infra-red remote eye unit back into the second TV aerial socket - before you plugged the co-ax cable back in?
If you have, press the SKY remote to see if the Infra-red LED can be seen in the remote pod.
Finally, make sure that you have selected the correct channel number (or Input) on your second TV remote to select SKY.

I hook the system up to my tv and no sound comes out the speakers


If you are using a single black co-ax cable, or three color composit cables, then those are video only.

You will need a seperate cable for sound to the TV, or connect to the computer speakers like normal.

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


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.

Co-ax input broke off in back


Good Day, aprilpatino;
If your TV has video, components or HDMI inputs you can by pass the 'rf' connector. You must have a cable, sat box or vcr in order to do so. Hook cable output from 'box' to the TV's input. Change TV's input with remote for the proper 'hooked-up' input.
Good Luck, Big Irish.

Denon AVR1602


I know the avr 1602 well....What exactly do you mean "I have my TV cable service wired to the Denon".....Do you mean the actual co-ax cable ?....

The denon is only able to switch raw video and audio signals.

What do I mean by that ?....IF you are running your co-ax cable from your cable company directly into the back of the denon, it won't work. The Denon has an AM-FM tuner, but not a video tuner ( channels 1-121)....If this is what you are doing, then you want to run it to your samsung first ( as long as the samsung has a tuner so you can change channels ).

If the samsung operates like an old VCR, whereby you can plug the cable company co-ax cable into the back of it, and change channels with the samsung, then that is what you must do. You would then hook up the OUTPUTS of the samsing to the VCR or DVD inputs on the Denon receiver. ( use DVD inputs on the denon if the samsung has optical audio out, and use an optical cable as well for better sound ).

You would then use the Denon for the sound, and hook up your TV to the Monitor out jack on the back of the Denon.

The Denon is like a big switchbox. You plug your DVD, VCR, Satellite, video game, or what-have-you into the Denon. Then you use the denon to route the signal to your TV for the picture, and the denon takes care of the sound.

Hope this helps, and remember to always follow your owners manual.......Rob
