Hi Craig,
Generally speaking there are no transmitters of any kind on or in a TV, flat panel or cathode ray tube. Even the units that one might see in a Century Link ad for the wireless set top units have a box that plugs into the TV. Same for Wii. Basically there is no need for the TV to have a transmitter because there is nothing for it to transmit to. TVs have always been designed to receive commands from an end user and display the selected input. Even those who suspect some secret conspiracy. would have to have their spy type transmitter installed while the unsuspecting were out, mostly because whoever is spying would be the only one to know what frequency to transmitt on. So, no transmitters. Hope this helped. Dan

Chris Millett I want to know. If I want to turn a 4 meter handheld two way radio into a vhf tv transmitter, can I use radio shack's tv modulator?


It can't be done. You can't turn an audio receiver / transmitter into a video transmitter. Give your head a shake!

Plus if you want to transmit anything especially video over air, you have to be fully licensed and registered.

Using a video transmitter to extend your cable network to another TV in the...


When I first purchased a cable plan I only had one TV in my house and it seemed like a waste to get multiple cable boxes for TV that I had not yet purchased. When the prices came down on TVs I decided that it was time to get a set to go in my bedroom upstairs but I didn't have a cable box to connect to the set.

I could have gone out and spent a $100+ on a new bulky cable box that is not really all that pretty or I could get a video transmitter that will extend my signal to the upstairs TV set for around $50. Even though it takes a little bit of set up the results are great, I can even use the one remote on both television sets.

To set up your video transmitter first you have to take the transmitter and receivers out of the box and make sure that they are both set to the same channel. This will ensure that they will read each other. Then you take the cables that came with the transmitters and connect them to the back of the cable box, matching up the yellow, red and white cables to each other. Position the transmitter box so that it is lined up with the signal transmitter of the cable box.

Then you want to go upstairs to the second TV and connect the receiver to the back of the television set the same way that you connected the transmitter to the cable box. Take the remote from the set downstairs and it should have extended the connection of the cable box to both TV sets. Now you are able to control the cable box from upstairs and watch your stations on both TVs.

Slx compact av sender


not familiar with the device, but remote receiver or transmitter was damaged by a power surge, the TV's AV inputs could be fried. or the transmitters/ receivers settings are simply scrambled first try the receiver on a different tv, and try a different device on the TV it was hooked up to ( I assume it connects to the second A/V input on the TV.) this will verify the TV is not damaged and the receiver / transmitter is where the issue is. If the TV itself is functional, make sure the transmitter and receiver are properly paired, that is, if there are any settings that are user selectable that they match. and then try it on the second TV again. If you have another remote receiver, ensure the transmitter is functional. This is where it becomes difficult to trouble shoot devices such as this. Which end is the problem at? by careful step by step substitution you will be able to identify the problem but remember, other than making sure the transmitter and receivers settings match, make only ONE change at a time. if it doesn't work, change it back and try another change. this is the main rule to trouble shooting. to many changes and you will create other problems, and you may have found the original problem by one of the changes you made in that group and couldn't tell because of the problems you introduced.

Sylvania wireless headphones



Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

How do video transmitters work?


A transmitter works by turning the audio/video device it is connected to into a audio and video signal broadcaster. So that when a receiver is connected to another device within range of the transmitter it will be able to pick up the signal from the transmitter and play on this second device. Say you have a TV in the family room and one in your bedroom, if you connect a transmitter to the one in the family room and a receiver to the one in the bedroom they will both be able to receive the same transmission.

Sharper image indoor/outdoor wireless speakers and transmitter has no audio.


First, determine if the TV device is putting out sound by plugging in a headphone into the audio out of the TV. If audio is there then the
transmitter and wireless speakers system may be at fault.
You can also plug in a CD player playing a disc into the transmitter to see if that source then transmits the audio.

Lost BBC1 BBC2 digital after switchover


You might have more than one transmitter. Some TV's etc only store a certain number of channels and have a max amount!. When weaker transmitters are present sometimes the memory of the TV will only store the stronger signals first from these weaker sites, with the two BBC channels being too weak to be detected.
The solution is to do a manual search on the transmitters you know are very strong. For example if channel 43 has strong signal you would search on that. The auto search will start at 21 and work it's way to 69. But if your area transmitter with the strongest signals is high up the scale the weaker transmitters will be selected first!

I installed the FM transmitter module which came with my samsung LCD TV model LA40C530F 1R. I tried accessing the FM transmitter menu in order to turn the transmitter On and to set the frequency but that...

3. Right arrow once (selects the sound menu)

5. Right arrow to get into the FM transmitter menu
6. select the "FM transmitter: off" line and turn it on (FM transmitter : on)
7. Change the frequency to to one that is not used by a radio station or has interference noise (get a radio and tune it till you hear the choosh sound with no beeping or clicking from lightning - then set the tv fm transmitter to that frequency using the up and down arrow keys and enter.

Using the device from the cable outlet


Not a stupid question. You should have received all the cables you need with the Leap Frog. To hook up your tv, take your transmitter and one set of a/v cables, usually red, white and yellow. Do one cable at a time. Your tv outputs should be color coded. You should have one set of three jacks completly open on the back or side of your tv, i.e. labeled component 1, component 2, aux 1, etc. First plug select one set of jacks. Plug a yellow plug into the yellow jack on your tv labeled video out. Plug the white plug into the white jack labeled audio L out. Plug the red plug into the red jack labeled audio R out. Now do the same on the transmitter but the jacks should say in. Yellow, white and red to video, audio L and audio R. Now take your receiver into the other room and do the same thing with the other tv. The cables go from the receiver out jacks to one set of jacks labeled Aux, component, etc like before. Pick a set that has all three open. Red to red, white to white, yellow to yellow. Make sure you then have the transmitter and receiver plugged in. Your remote is supposed to work from your other room. If this solved your problem please rate this as fixed. If you need more help with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you. Thanks.
