Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Connecting devices I just wanted to know if someone could spend a little time finaly explaining to me the basics of how to connect components.  I have all panasonic stuff.  I've never learned what Input Output means and what device is which, what cable goes where.  I'm sure there is a rule of thumb somewhere I don't know about.  If you could help me understand this, I would be forever grateful.  I always wanted to understand this stuff but no one has really explained it well enough to me.  Thank you for your consideration.

DVD to TV =use video out of dvd to TVs input 1 ,2,3 or 4 .To view dvd on tv simply activate that input you used as input for dvd.this applies to any other components you use to TV or monitor

Can you set up, AND use, CHROMECAST, with ONE mobile phone/tablet that has mobile data?


You are confusing yourself.

Mobile Data uses the internet direct from the mobile device.

WiFi uses public or private connection from phone to Router to Internet.

Mobile Hotspot or 'tethering', allows you to connect one device, through another to use data or wifi of the host device.

In your case, you want to connect Chromcast via your device using Mobile Data. Yes you can, see the link for explanation and videos.

I want to connect my philips home theater to samsung tv so how do i connect plz guide i hv three colour ep pin


Hi, to hook up a Tv to an home theater they are all the same process.

Instruction:

Make sure your playback devices are properly connected to your receiver. Whatever playback devices you use, make sure they are plugged into the appropriate inputs on your receiver. DVD and Blu-ray players, satellite boxes and cable boxes should all be plugged into video inputs, and CD players should be plugged into audio inputs. Your receiver will have labels on the back panel indicating into which input you should plug your devices.


Connect the video out to your TV's video input. Make sure you use the correct cable to make the connection. For newer receivers, the connection will likely be either HDMI or component. If your receiver has an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable to connect the receiver to the HDMI input on your TV. If your receiver uses a component output, use a component cable to connect your receiver to the component input on your TV.


Connect the audio output of your TV to one of the audio inputs on your receiver if you want to output your television's audio through your home theatre system. Most recent TVs will either use an optical cable or a digital coaxial cable to connect to the receiver, allowing you 5.1 channel surround from your television. If you have an older set, you will likely have to use standard RCA cables.


Turn on your receiver and press the "Setup/Menu" button on your receiver's remote. When "Input" appears on the display, press the right arrow key on your remote to select TV from the list.


After selecting TV, press the up or down arrow keys on your remote to select the audio input jack into which you have plugged your TV's audio cable. Press the "Exit" button on your remote to exit the setup menu and lock in the settings.


Tips & Warnings

Make sure you plug everything into the correct jacks or you will spend unnecessary time trying to troubleshoot why you don't have picture or sound.

Check to see if the DVD has a setting to change it's Output... ie: Can you select, HDMI, RCA, Component? via the DVD? If so then reselect the correct one, perhaps Component is the "Default" output?

LOSING Connections when adding new device


Sounds like duplicate IP addresses. clashing.

Set it up so the router does DHCP - must have an address range though.

Set up MAC filters initially, with NO security - i.e only the stuff you know and have entered the MAC addresses and see if that's OK.

Is there a military base etc. nearby - radio interference????

Has anyone successfully connected an external device to the video inputs?


First, the R/Y/W connections are "composite" not "component" video. Component connections are green/blue/red and are a superior connection basically on the same level of quality as HDMI. If you have your TV and VCR connected this way, it will not be compatible with the RCA Y/R/W. I think you are confused as to what component and composite connections are. And, why would you want to connect a DVD player to anything at all other than your TV or a DVD burner? I don't get it.

If you are using R/W/Y, that is basic and the least sophisticated connection available. Further, if you connected this unit to your TV, then you would want to set its connections on "out", not "in", then plug them into your TV.

Retreiving information off barely-functioning IIIx


Sorry to hear about your trusty little workhorse dying, but all is not lost, meaning your data. You'll just need to get a replacement sync cable that can somehow replace the old RS232 connection. You should be able to use the same cable that connects to the m100 without spending the extra money to buy the old Palm MacPac. Once you've got your data retrieved your new device (I assume you're addicted like the rest of us) should offer you more options. Otherwise you may want to consider getting a USB or Firewire expansion card.

Networking with Motorola SBG 900 Gateway


No, you don't need a router... that gateway supports up to 253 devices on your private network segment. That being said, you only have one ethernet port, so if your desktops have LAN cards rather than wireless, you'll need a hub to split off enough ports. If you add a router, it'll give you a whole new level of complexity. A gateway is a router/modem combo. It converts the Cable Internet signal from your ISP to ethernet and isolates all of the computers behind it into your own private network. A hub is basically an ethernet splitter... it won't isolate a new network segment, it'll just add more ports. Get a hub, they are cheaper and won't add a new level of complexity.
