Terk wireless transmitter

I have just bought the Terk Leapfrog wireless transmitter. Please bear in mind that I am not good with electronics and the like. What I wanted to do is to eliminate the cable stretched over my floor from the cable outlet to the TV. How does one connect the transmitter to the cable outlet? I can figure out the receiver end, I just don't know what to do at the transmitter end. Please help!

Hi Sleopard,

Wireless transmitters should allow broadcasts of a single source such as a VCR, DVD player, or cable boxes. They normally wouldn’t be able to transmit something like a cable signal to your television. One way this could work is if you connected a cable box right below your outlet and then connected the cable box to your transmitter. If your transmitter has a infrared extender you may be able to change channels by pointing your remote at the wireless receiver.


Cordially,

Channels change by themselves cable box turns it self off happens mainly at night and weekends


Check whether any other light sources, that energise the remote sensor inside the system. Some CCFL lamps used to home lighting can cause this.

Need to find a cheap remote control for Magnavox TB110MW9


Look for a Phillips Universal Remote. They have 3-4 depending on how many components you need to control and they are very reasonably price. In Minnesota, I find them at my local Menard's store.

No dip switch in Hunter 27157 remote control.


Those aren't transistors in the transmitter they are jumpers. Match the jumper settings with your dip switch settings in the receiver. You can move the jumpers in the transmitter using a small needle nose pliers. An open jumper in the transmitter equals an OFF setting on the dip switch in the receiver.

Good luck!

ML-L3 Remote control


Sadly, the ML-L3 does not work with the D700. You need to buy the much clumsier and much more expensive ML-3, which has a wireless receiver you hook to the camera and a wireless transmitter you use to fire the camera.

Lame, but true.

Wireless remote control extender


Possibly your new equipment doesn't use IR (infared) as the media for the remote. I have used the pyramid and different versions of it for DirecTV/Dish and most everything else for years with no major problems. occasionally a unit will fail, but that happens. If the red light blinks on the "transmitter" (no antenna) it should indicate that it is receiving IR from the remote. The "receiver" (antenna) has to be oriented correctly in front of the unit to be controlled. I put the receiver no closer than 5' to the unit. The signal coming out is a cone shape and it's easier to aim the further away you are. As a test, you could try using the remote to control a stereo or something else, even a fan. If the remote has a led or a dark red plastic cap on the front end, it should be an IR unit.
