No RGA input detected

Hi, I have the following connections: -a/c adapter to power (box), -coax cable to tv (box), -vga output (box) to lcd monitor. When I hit power on. I get a blank screen but I know the monitor is on b/c the light is green on the monitor. I tried hitting the source (box) a few times and it would say no RGA input detected. Sometimes the monitor seem to flicker if I look closely enough. The monitor is just black. I know the monitor works cause it works perfectly through my laptop. What's wrong? How can I fix this problem?

Re: No RGA input detected

Through the Remote .. press menu .. and make sure that the VGA output is one that the Monitor can handle (if LCD 1280x1024) ... lower the refrech rate or definition until the monitor 'sinc's

Going from cable to coby converter box

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.

What is MAxmedia tv for?

its a VGA to s-video/composite(rca) converter. it allow you to connect a computer to a tv with compatible inputs. Example would be to connect your laptop to a tv to show videos or pictures at a family gathering. you connect a VGA cable to the VGA output on the laptop(usually blue) connected to the MaxMedia TV II Plus, then from there you could connect a set of rca to the tv and view whatever the laptop sees on the tv screen with audio.

another example with a diagram

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. 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 or 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.

I have a problem with hiss coming from the sound bar (ZBase 550 HSD) when using my digital cable box. It is not an issue with PS3 etc. I have the sound on the cable box turned to max, but I still hear a...

Hello ZVOX Owner,
The hiss you hear is generated by the analog audio output of the cable box. The best way to eliminate this hiss to use the digital output of the cable box. The preferred way to do this is to connect the digital audio output of both your cable box and your PS3 to the your TV (I presume your TV has two digital audio inputs.)
Your TV has a digital audio output. You should connect the digital audio output of your TV to the digital input of the ZVOX.
This should reduce or eliminate the hiss and provide convenient video source selection via the TV.

CAN I connect 2 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:


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!

Well, all you have to do is make proper connections.
There must be two power cables. 1 for PC and 1 for monitor.
No video input message indicates that the video (VGA) cable is not connected. It is Video input cable, the Blue one with same connector at both ends. Connect it with your monitor and secure it properly. Its other end is required to be connected to the blue output connector at the back of the PC.

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps!

The Sabrent TV-PC85 converter box does not work when I connect it to my laptop. How do I fix this? I tried connecting it in every possible way, but still nothing.

That is for converting the VGA output to TV formats. The box is powered via a USB cable. You also need to use the keyboard command to output via the VGA connector - varies among laptop manufacturers, but is usually a function key mixed with the F1-F12 at the top of the keyboard.

My .computer has a vga output ,tv has rca- red, yellow and white input. will your converter work for me?

Looks like it should, it supports s-video (same as component yellow) in both PAL and NTSC. For the sound you'd need a 3.5mm jack to component left & right adapter, which probably cost pennies on ebay.

Gateway laptop to phillips tv

Hi, there, pleasy clarify the following:
What is your Gateway model? Is your TV an older tube type or a new HDTV? Does it have other input ports besides the standard cable input and the RCA you mentioned? You may be able to use S-Video if your laptop has the output port and so does your old TV. Or if you have a newer laptop that includes DVI and you have an HDTV, then you can use a DVI to HDMI cable which by the way will result in the best image quality.

WinTV-HVR-1600 Tuner card to DishNetwork receiver

Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.

This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.

If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.
