Question about Terk LeapFrog LF30S

1 Answer

Using the device from the cable outlet

I'm really new at this, so I might have a really stupid question, but here goes: I have just bought this transmitter/receiver with the intent of plugging the transmitter into the cable outlet and positioning the TV in another room with the receiver. Problem is: how do I connect the transmitter? Is there some sort of cable that will do the trick? Am grateful for any help! Thanks!

    Hi. Thanks for trying to help me out. My television is in a different room than the cable hookup in the wall. I currently have a very long cable stretching through my apt., and have tripped over it numerous times. So, I guess the most direct answer to your last question is that I'm trying to have a hookup in a room that doesn't have one. Thanks again!

    I just purchased a LF30S and am trying to install. I have a live cable outlet in the room that I want to locate a new TV however the location of the live outlet is not in the correct position. My thought was that I could connect the LF transmitter directly to the cable outlet and then transmit the signal to the LF receiver once installed on the TV. Appears as if I may have to purchase something else. Can you assist here?

Not a stupid question. You should have received all the cables you need with the Leap Frog. To hook up your tv, take your transmitter and one set of a/v cables, usually red, white and yellow. Do one cable at a time. Your tv outputs should be color coded. You should have one set of three jacks completly open on the back or side of your tv, i.e. labeled component 1, component 2, aux 1, etc. First plug select one set of jacks. Plug a yellow plug into the yellow jack on your tv labeled video out. Plug the white plug into the white jack labeled audio L out. Plug the red plug into the red jack labeled audio R out. Now do the same on the transmitter but the jacks should say in. Yellow, white and red to video, audio L and audio R. Now take your receiver into the other room and do the same thing with the other tv. The cables go from the receiver out jacks to one set of jacks labeled Aux, component, etc like before. Pick a set that has all three open. Red to red, white to white, yellow to yellow. Make sure you then have the transmitter and receiver plugged in. Your remote is supposed to work from your other room. If this solved your problem please rate this as fixed. If you need more help with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you. Thanks.

    I'm sorry - don't rate my solution yet - I misread your problem. Do you have a tv in the first room or are you basically trying to give yourself a cable hookup in a room you don't have it? I have answers either way- just let me know.

    That is why I asked you not to rate my solution yet. I can still help you out with your problem. We try to solve peoples problems, not just be helpful. I know how much that Leap Frog costs, don't know what you actually paid for it or when you got it. There are a number a number of solutions. I can tell you where to get a inexpensive adaptor so you can use your Leap Frog, or there's less expensive ways than LF to do what yo want to do. I'll add another comment with some options for you because I want you to be all fixed p and running right. Be back in a while. Just might save you some money!

    I was wondering since it seems you have your cable hooked up directly to your tv, does that mean you have no cable boxes in your residence? That would mean you have analog cable as opposed to digital. So do you have any cable boxes or not... let me know please.
