Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Analog tvs have washed out pictures in our living room but not in other rooms. We're using directv with rca jacks with a switcher with a dvd and wii hooked up plus the directv receiver. Been working fine for years then all of sudden the other day the picture is washed out.

How can I use two LG flatscreens tvs at the samme time, they are c 10 meters apart, one in the living room the other in the work room,


A signal splitter should be used in conjunction with two or more TVs.
You can buy it from any electronic spare part selling shops.

I have a 32" flatscreen


Different video signals use different connections ...and we are speaking ONLY the video(NOT including the audio connections)
  • Composite Video (typically colored Yellow) uses 1 RCA connection on your TV
  • Svideo (uses 1 svideo connector on your TV) a circular connector with 4 pins in it
  • Component Video (typically colored Red/Green/Blue) uses 3 RCA connections on your TV
These are the common analog video signals....You cannot mix and match these and plug a composite (Sometimes called AV in menus) into component etc
If both your sources (wii/DVD) you want to use a component signal to your TV (which BTW is the best quality of the 3 I listed) you will need 2 component inputs on your TV
OR
run it through a high end receiver (that will act as your switcher)
OR
buy a small stand alone switcher, something like: http://www.amazon.com/4X1-HD-Component-Av-Selector/dp/B000BVIBGI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_4

settle for a lower quality DVD signal and use the Composite video out (yellow jack) into the Composite Video In on the TV and use the component for wii

I hope this helps,

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.

The headphone jack on the TV has switch built-in to kill the TV speakers when headphne jack is used, you need to use powered PC speakers with headphone jack and connect this PC speakers to the Audio line out of the TV set (RED and WHITE RCA audio line out). Basically the powered PC speakers are being used a headphone driver. Or you can get one of those wirless headphone system instead.

I just had directv hooked up, I have a dvr receiver, I was told I did not have enough hook ups on the back of my tv, so therefore, I went and bought a switch or combiner. Now, how do I need to run the...


Newer directv hd receivers must connect to the av input (yellow,red, white) connections on the back/front/side of your tv. If your tv only has one of these av inputs then you will need an RF modulator for your dvd player. You will connect the (yellow,red, white) connections from the dvd player to the rf modulator and then connect the tv out on the rf modulator to the tv rf jack ( the silver threaded barrel on the back of the tv) Tune your tv to channel 3 to watch a dvd and then back to the av input channel for the directv receiver.

You need to get a converter with an "analog passthrough". The magnavox converter that you have is blocking the analog signal from reaching your TV's tuner. The RCA converters that your friends have must have the analog passthough feature that not all converters have.

Connecting Wii through Component cables and Phillips switcher


I just did some more checking...

When you have the Wii connected to the AV Switch, try turning on the DVD player too, but have the switch set to show the Wii on the TV. It is odd, but that has worked for me.
