As far as I know, the E196FPf monitor does not have speakers or an audio out. Thus you'll need to connect the sound bar to the audio out of your computer or other source. On a laptop, this will be the headphone jack. On desktops, you use the lime-green 3.5 mm jack on the back of the system.
Depending on the sound bar, you might need a Aux (3.5 mm M to 3.5 mm M) cable, a 3.5 mm M to dual RCA (red/white) adapter cable or an analog to digital audio converter with the 3.5mm to RCA cable and appropriate digital audio cable.
Please add a comment with the model of the sound bar and the audio/video source, if you want more information on the best solution for your application.
Good day, I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog. The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well. Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.
Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.
plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan. When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.
No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.
If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.
Viewing separateChanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.
More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started. The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.
My understanding is that the Digital signal is weaker than the analog, so need a stronger antenna to pick up the digital signal, and MAY still not get any reception at all. Have you considered satellite for you RV? Won't need the converter at all then.
Hey boykinpierce, The phrase "Smart Antenna" is often used to describe a multi-directional antenna or antenna array. These types of antennas are able to detect and automatically adjust to any changes in the TV signal strength you receive, and can generally be obtained through most major retailers. They primarily are used in areas where digital signals are weaker or somewhat inconsistent, and will attempt to optimize the signals they do receive before sending them to a TV or digital converter box. Please keep in mind that while some DTV digital-to-analog converter boxes may have built-in Smart Antennas, this particular model (RCA DTA800) does not appear to have this feature. If you're still not quite sure what to look for, please remember that you can always speak with a home theatre sales agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Hope this helps you out.

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?
