I don't mean ti intrude Linktriscuit, but your solution is OK for low power car stereo's.
I have been in car audio setup for a while and what daren_norman has said was that he needs a 15A seperate cable. So to my knowledge if his CD palyer manual says it needs 15 Amps then I don't think it's a low powered one, 15Amps is quite high for a standard car radio stereo harness, and that is why it needs a seperate high guage wire capable of handling that much current.
This yellow wire replaces ACC cable in the harness, but the normal memory supply (+12V) is taken from the harness and the cd player should have good ground connection to the body of the car in addition with th harness ground.
The yellow cable should be as thick as u can get to make cable loss minimum. At high Audio levels the cable drop will increase if you use low gauge wires ( thin ) and the sound will get distorted due low batttery supply.
And thirdly there will be a remote wire to switch on and off the cd player when u turn on or off the rest of the components
I said all these because car audio currents a quite high and any silly mistake will lead to cables to over heat and mostly it will catch fire. ( Cause I have seen a maercedes benz caught up in flames due to poor wiring. "what a dread ful sight, and a 2004 model two").

So If u need help just post back and I will tell u how to do it, it is quite simple with the right way.

SOURCE: Got a Kenwood vr405 surround receiver, a Sanyo

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

It's the F antenna connector. You can use a connector like this one in order to connect your antenna or put in the hole f the connector just the inner copper cable of your antenna cable and stabilize the outer thin cables from your antenna cable at the outer metal part of the F connector (using a small cable tie). There is no dangerous voltage at this connection so don't worry about safety (at this connection).

Need codes for kenwoon tk2212L-1 scanner

TK2212 is a Portable 2 way radio not a scanner. What is it that you are trying to do with the radio? What codes are you talking about? If you are trying to program the radio you will need software and cable that is available from a Kenwood dealer or sometimes you can purchase the cable on Ebay and get the software from someone on Yahoo user group "Radio programming"

Coaxial connection

First make sure the cable end is good if not get an other cable. Second there is a screw-on push-on "F" connector adapter you can buy. It screws into the cable and then push over the thread and on to you TV. If you in the USA Radio Shack has it. Her is a link so you can see it.

you need to get an adapter for the cable hook up. you probably have screws on the back for an regular antenna. you can buy an adapter at radio shack or one of your electronic stores. this would have an cable connection on one end and 2 u's on the other to screw into the back of your tv. you just need an adapter. or you can find 10' portable tv's and lower at that would work with cable.

I am trying to wire a kenwood headunit into my 2000 fiat punto and have connected the adapters but the stereo is not working.i had the stereo in my car before with no problems.

The fiat punto does not have a ignition wire which is the problem. There are two solutions:

a) Take the Kenwood stereo back and get a Fiat stereo replacement

b) feed both the ignition and the battery from the head unit into the car 12v battery cable.

b will work but not without potential flat battery if you forgot to switch it off. Solution a is recommended

Where can i get an external antenna adapter to fit my tv/dvd from

Well I thought I had one of the mini-jack to F type connector cables ordered but then it became Discontinued at However, if Radio Shack still carries those F-connector to mini-mono earphone plugs then with another F-type Quick Connect you can make one with a length of RG-*.*/U cable with F-type screwon male connectors. Almost every one has some of those cable or satellite pieces laying around or stored and with proper adapters can fashion one for their portable TV's.
