I had a TV amplifier Channel Master 3042 I need to know how to connect it


This amp can be used with an off-air antenna or a cable box (up to channel 141).

With an antenna: Connect your antenna to the input. Connect the output to the tv's RF (antenna) input (if you're only driving one tv from this amp), or a splitter (if you're driving several tv's).

With a cable box: Connect the feed from the cable company to the amp's input. Connect the output to the input of the cable box.

What is the video single output VHF FM UHF 12db


That sounds like the description of a broadband amplifier. It likely has "F" type (cable-coax) connectors and a power cord.
Commonly used to increase the signal level of TV cable to compensate for inserting a signal splitter, or in some cases to increase the signal level from an antenna, typically outdoor TV or FM radio antenna, so it is connected between the signal source (antenna, or cable) and receiver with antenna as input and receiver connected to the output of this little box. The gain (amplification) it provides is 12 dB, so the output is more than 3 times the input.

I recently received an old analog television (manufactured in 1990) for my dorm room, and I've been having audio troubles with only one channel (the channel in question is TBS). Whenever the audio...


hi; try these steps:
First if you have a poor signal try to check the connector cable at the back of your TV if it has short or corroded pin, second check if your setting is in cable not antenna and rechannel the TV by pressing autosearch program in menu. or if you use antenna try to focus the antenna from the direction where the stations coming from. Third try to use signal booster, it can be bought it any electronic store.
if those 3 wont work maybe there's a problem with tuner area, marmeto12_20.jpg
it has to be repair or replace, thanks.......... hope this help.

How do I hook up a VCR to a small Sanyo TV? Thank you


How you hook up the VCR depends on the connections available on the VCR and the TV.

The simplest method is to use a cable from the VCR's RF (antenna) output connector to the TV's antenna input connector and tune the TV to the VCR output channel (3 or 4). You might need to purchase an adapter to switch from the standard plug on the cable to whatever kind of external antenna connector is on the TV. If the set only has a built-in antenna and no external connection at all (which would be quite unusual), you need a "balun" transformer. This has a connector on one end for the cable from the VCR and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Attach one of the terminals to the set's antenna with a clip-on jumper wire. Radio Shack sells the parts.

If your VCR does not have RF output but just audio and video jacks, connect those to the TV's a/v inputs if it has them. Again, an adapter cable might be required.

If the TV doesn't have a/v input available, you need an RF converter. This takes the a/v signals from the VCR and produces a channel 3 or 4 output that you can connect to the TV as described above.

It sounds more complicated than it actually is. Once you look at the VCR and TV, and remember that outputs always go to inputs, it's usually pretty clear what needs to be done. If you still have troubles please post a follow-up comment and I'll try to help more.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box


There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.

Combining output from dish home distribution with ota antenna


You should have your system setup in the following manner below:

You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.

Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.

Pay tv cable


you may bypass the box by using a straight connector, find the cable that lead to the TV room and connect it to the cable from the aerial antenna.

Piping TV throughout house


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.
