Piping TV throughout house

Can I install twin aerial outputs. in each room, and 'daisy chain'throughout my house with a single connection to the aerial to get reception in each room.(rather than having separate cables from each room into the loft) By doing so will the outlets act as splitters. Will this work wit digital signals

Yes, this is done many times. If you do have a degraded picture because of all the slitters you can just add a antenna booster amp to compensate.

How do I cable this connection please?

It depends what input connection the second TV has available. You cannot directly daisy chain HDMI cable from Apple TV to the two TVs assuming both have HDMI input. But you can purchase an HDMI 1x2 splitter and connect the 3 up provided the 2nd TV also has HDMI. The challenge maybe the distance you can have between the two TVs. Max is 15 meter but you could cascade 2 units to create longer distances.

How to set up vhs taping

Most VCRs need to be connected in a daisy chain or a splitter from your input source. (You may need a tuner with some VCRs these days; either a digital to analog converter for a VCR with an NTSC tuner or a different tuner source.)

If you have analog cable or a cable box with coax out and a VCR with an NTSC tuner, use the daisy chain method. Connect the incoming cable or the coax out from the cable box to the VCR's coax input. Then connect the VCR coax out to the TVs coax input.

For a VCR without a tuner, you'll probably find a RCA composite video line in option on the VCR. Connect your cable box or converter box composite output to the VCR composite in. For an OTA source, you'll need a splitter to send the signal to both the TV and the converter box.

Most TVs do not have a video output option.

I hope this helps.

Our TV has been perfect for many years. We now suddenly have the picture compress, if you will, to the bottom 2/3's of the television screen, and it makes an angle like a triangle going toward the bottom....

This fault sounds like failure of the LINE OUTPUT TRANSFORMER.
It can be fixed, but may cost you around $120, possibly more if you have to call out an engineer.
Best NOT to use the TV as it is, because it could possibly damage the system.
If you do use it, this line will become permanent and if you get the TV fixed later, there will always be a burnt section of the screen where the line was - so I suggest you either pay to get it fixed right away, or consider buying a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Where do I buy cable wire,to connect to another tv in another room or rooms

You need to buy a cable splitter and enough 75 Ohm coaxial cable.
The splitters come in 2, 3, 4, 5... outputs. Buy the number of outputs you need. Also, never chain splitters, the quality gets worse.

I have installed a digital ariel but am unable to get any channels. Keep getting message no signal. The ariel works with other tv in house

You may need a digital booster when sharing 1 aerial.
They are quite cheap (£5 on e-bay is the cheapest I've seen) and easy to fit.
Also the coaxial cable can make a differance, you really need shielded and with as few joints as possible.
I hope this helps.
P.S. try tuning with just the problem set connected to the aerial direct.

What plugs in where at the back of model 32AV633D Does single scart go to ext 1 or ext 2 Where does outside aerial plug in, there are so many ? Sorry but I'm a complete technophobe who is hopeless at...

If you have a cable box or freeview box, your main aerial lead plugs into the box. Then you connect a scart lead from your cable box/freeview box/ or dvr box to ext 1 on the tv. Where the aerial lead plugs into your cable/freeview/dvr box, there may be an aerial out socket too. You could connect a patch lead from the box to your tv as well so you have UHF direcy from your cable/freeview/dvr box to the TV as well as scart

Since digital switchover yesturday loss of digital channels

It may well be your aerial despite the success with your DVD recorder.

Digital signals are very much weaker than analogue ones, and when multiple devices share a single aerial you can get this kind of problem. You also lose about 60% of the signal at each point in your aerial cable where there are signal splitters.

There are a number of possible solutions:-

First, look at every bit of coaxial cable you have between the aerial and each appliance. Check especially at the aerial end for corrosion or poor shielding/installation and especially for evidence of rain water penetration. If the aerial is on the roof then it will cost almost as much to get the aerial inspected as it will to have it replaced, so skip to the next option. But otherwise, check along every bit of the cable for any cuts or splits in the insulation and properly remake every junction or joint if there are any doubts about them. If the cable is in poor condition then consider option three instead.

The second is to try to see if you get a better digital signal from another transmitter, this will involve trying different aerial positions so is impractical if your aerial is roof mounted but is worth trying if it's in the loft instead. It doesn't always follow that your best digital signal will be from the transmitter which you used for analogue transmissions.

Thirdly, if you're still using the same aerial as you have done for years then it's worth upgrading to one optimised for digital reception. When doing this it's foolish not to replace the cabling as well as you need it to be as good as possible. With analogue, many installers got away with using cheaper cable intended only for very short cable runs from the wall socket to the tv.

The fourth option is the budget option but can work as well as the third option: fit an additional analogue style aerials and run a separate cable down to each appliance. If these are fitted in the loft and you have the space, then there's no aesthetic or planning concerns. Normally the extra cables can run partway down through the house alongside existing cables, but for best signal quality keep them separate and ensure that the cable runs as as short as possible.

One further thing which you may want to try before all else: connect your digital box directly to the aerial cable which currently feeds your dvd recorder. Leave all other tv devices disconnected from the aerial. If the box retunes correctly then it's definitely a supply of signal issue as outlined above and if not then you should add the exact make and model of your digibox as a comment to this answer as there are a large number of earlier digibox models which cannot retune correctly due to evolving standards.

Help! How to get the best TV reception in this part of my house!

the area where you live creates reflexions or gaps in the signal (seeing how hard is to get the signal) maybe mountains around maybe big constructions or just simple a deep in the overall terrain. In all this cases maybe the solution is to get signal from the sky. This is done by: ex (dishnetwork, comcast) or any of those vendors with the little round antenna that you pay monthly. Now if the problem is only in that room of the house; then an xtra instalation can feed signal to that area from the other areas in the house where the signal is working good with you other tvs around the house. Just a couple of splitters and good isolated cable is needed to transport it.
