TRying to get my PC to TV converter up and running
I just purchased the Kworld 1600 PC to TV Game Box today. I also had the same problem as many others seem to have had. The TV screen displayed only colored bars. After searching on line for troubleshooting ideas I finally was able to correct the problem, thanks to help of people responding to these problems on "FixYa", and I thank you, as I was ready to return the product at a loss of 15% of the cost (restocking fee).
I am using a Toshiba Satelite L350D with Vista Home Premium and a 2005-32"JVC TV.
First ensure that the Monitor Y-cable supplied has been properly installed to your PC and your TV (my first mistake). Each plug is individually identified, that being, TV, monitor, scan cnvtr.
Second, on Vista go to Control Panel, open (Double left click) the personalization icon. You can then open your display settings.click on advanced settings, this will open a window for your graphics card. Click on "List All Modes", use an 800 x 600 High Color Mode, 16 bit, 59 or 60 hertz, hit 'OK' and that window will close.Then hit 'Apply' in the Graphics Card window(the screen will go black and then set itself to the new mode). You may have to try a few different 800 x 600 modes to find the best one for your TV.
Thirdly this converter is only for video, not audio.
For audio you must use a 1/8 stereo plug from your PC headphone jack to an RCA adapter into the Left and Right Audio Input of your TV.
Make sure you are using the same Video Input Section for both your audio and video (Video1, Video2, Video3, you cannot plug the video into Video1 and the audio into Video2).
After setting this converter up on my Laptop I was also able to plug it into my 7+ year old desktop (Cicero P4, XP Home Edition).
I hope grouping these 3 problems into 1 will help others and save them some time and frustration.
Thanks again to everyone on "FixYa" for their help.
