Question about Sony LF-X1 12.1 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Lf-x1 the sony lfx1 base station is an av device that hooks to video and audio cables running from a cable or satellite box. it merely sends the signal to a wireless monitor with the range of about 50 feet. the monitor and the base station usually sync with each other automatically. they have each others address already programmed in each other . they have no ability to be re- programmed -except- I can type in the base stations address in a fill in blank on the monitors screen -if I had the address. tried running an ethernet cord from my 2wire2 router to the base station hoping that my mac laptop might pick up some info and it did recognize the lfx1 but I couldnt get it to connect I just am not that good at this stuff marf

Ok now i see, the way i see it is that you can put an IP address on the lf-X1 and by then configure it wirelessly on your mac? right, id there a utility by any chance that you can install on your mac so that it will see the sony base station? they should have the same segment for them to communicate still. actually you should create one by using a utility that came with sony, or you can check the IP adrdress of your mac so that you can assign one to sony station.

but here's what, check this link. this will help you set it up: click HERE

pls rate solution, thanks!

How do I hook-up Netflix through a Sony Blu-Ray player and a LG television


If your Sony Blu-Ray player and LG TV are recent models, each should have an HDMI cable connection. HDMI is an method to connect your digital video and audio devices with just a single combined cable. In the case of your LG TV, using an HDMI cable will allow you to send the HD video signal to your TV's screen, and allow you to hear the sound through the TV's speakers.
Your LG TV may have multiple HDMI connectors, to allow other devices to send signals to your TV, such as a cable box or satellite box or digital video recorder (DVR). Your Sony Blu-Ray player will usually have just a single HDMI connector.
Purchase an HDMI cable from your local electronics store. There are different versions of the HDMI specification, and you should get a cable that you can verify is certified for the HDMI version 1.4 specification.
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the Blu-Ray player, and the other end into one of the HDMI connectors on the TV, noting which one you selected.
When you turn on your Sony Blu-Ray and your LG TV, you should use the remote for the LG TV to select the input source. Your LG remote should allow you to select the HDMI input connector you used, at which point you should see the display of a DVD playing on the Blu-Ray player. If you cannot hear the sound, use the LG remote to increase the TV volume.

Why does my Sony STR-K750P AV receiver automatically switch to Video 2?


Some models of systems will switch to a new source automatically if the source sees a new signal coming on. Try disconnecting the device on your Video 2 to see if this is the case.

I have seen the IC or component(s) in the switching circuits become defective and cause unpredictable or faulty operation. This can also be a fault condition you are seeing.

I have a set of T 912 wireless headphones. I am unable to set them up on the TV. I am using the white and red cables from the base station to the TV audio red and white. Do you have any instructions on...


The audio jacks on the TV are most likely inputs, not outputs. They're meant to take the audio signal from something like a DVD player, along with the video input on another jack, so you can play it through the TV. There isn't an audio signal coming out from those jacks, and if you connect your headphone transmitter to them all you'll get is silence. Almost all sets now have at least one set of AV inputs, but most don't give you outputs. The manufacturers figure the TV is just a display device, and not a signal source.

Unfortunately, there isn't any easy way to connect your wireless headphones if the TV doesn't have audio output jacks or a headphone connector. If you're comfortable with soldering and willing to do some modification to your TV, it's possible to add a headphone jack. Most people don't want to start tinkering with their sets, though.

If you're using your TV on a cable system without a converter box and the cable hooks right to the set, you're out of luck unless you're willing to add a headphone jack as I mentioned before. But if you have a cable converter box, or you're using a satellite receiver or other set-top box, you can use your headphones with those. These devices typically have direct audio and video outputs available on the rear panel, and you can use that audio output to feed the headphone transmitter.

What most people do these days is use a home theater receiver along with the TV. All sources (the cable box, DVD player, video game console, audio CD player, etc.) connect to the receiver, and the receiver's audio and video outputs go to the corresponding input jacks on the TV. This way, the TV is just the end of the line. The receiver also would provide an output for the wireless headphone transmitter. This system offers some advantages. You'll be able to connect the proper speakers to enjoy surround sound when not using headphones. And you'll be able to use your wireless headphones with the tuner and audio sources like music CDs when not watching TV.

Cant hook it up to the tv and make sound on speakers


There are a couple of things going on here.

First concept: The physical TV is NOT a good source of audio or video. It's there to turn audio and video from other sources into something your senses can enjoy. Many TV's (monitors) don't even have speakers.

You probably want the TV-related audio to play on your Sony. Your best source is to get it where it comes from. That is NOT the TV, more likely cable or satellite. Draw the best multi-channel audio (digital, if available) from it into the compatible input on the Sony.

The cable box will also have video and analog stereo audio. Run the BEST VIDEO (HDMI or component) to the TV's video and the analog stereo RCA Audio Out to the TV's Audio In so you can watch and hear cable without the Sony if you like.

You could also run the TV's analog Audio Out RCA pair into an AUX input of the Sony, but that would limit whatever you hear to stereo and any audio limitations of the TV.

I have an LG all in one home theatre system, LCD TV and Direct TV satellite box. It is all hooked up and working fine except I only hear the sound through the speakers when playing a dvd or radio. The...


OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.

Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:

1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.

2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.

3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.

Hope this helps!

No Audio


1. Make sure you have connected the cables from audio OUT on the Directv box to the audio IN on TV input 3 and have selected the correct source on the TV.

2. Many sat boxes have an audio volume control. Select the satellite box on the Directv remote and turn up the box's volume.

Hope this helps.:)
