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 this up to a COMCAST Cable Box...or do I hook it to the audio of the TV? Are cables the best or should I just buy an HDMI cable?


Cable (and any source) audio should go digitally and directly to your AV receiver. HDMI would work, too, but the TV would be the best place to send the HD video if you only have the one HDMI output at the Comcast box.

OTOH, I compared both HDMI and the component video hookups to my HDTV and could not see the difference. So I run my BD on HDMI (because it is by FAR the best video the TV will ever get) and component video from the HD cable box to the TV (because all broadcast video is bit- and bandwidth-limited somewhere along the line).

TV audio almost never originates with the TV unless it has an antenna, so why would you want to feed its audio to the receiver?

Hooking up to the television s-cable and two audio jacks. I have a picture of the dvd but the sound comes from the television program in the background


The S Video cable and the two audio cables should be plugged into the same av input on your television. It sounds like the sound cables for your cable box or satellite tv box are plugged into the television where the two audio cables for the DVD player should be.

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 don't have a cable box and have hooked my Sony DAV-X1 system directly into the av input jacks on my tv. I can watch and listen to dvd's but the speakers won't work when watching tv.


What are you doing? Note the following:
The only cable you should connect to your TV from your X1 are the video cables
Logic is you want to use the system for sound and your TV for video only
  • If you have an LCD TV use the HDMI connection for video from your DVDs
  • If not the best video is using the component video (red green blue) i.e connect this to your X1 and your TV input
  • If your TV does not have this just use the video out composite (yellow). On the X1 it is indicated as Monitor
The reason why you do not have any audio from the TV is because you have not connected Audio Out from your TV to your X1. Do the following:
  • Identify if your TV has stereo audio out i.e A/V out should have red and white jacks
  • If this is the case connect this to your input on your X1 corresponding to TV
  • If your TV only has one Audio Out jack you need an RCU cable that has one to two pins and you would connect the single pin to your Audio out on the TV and the two (red/white) to your X1)
  • To listen to audio from TV simply set the input or source setting on your X1 to TV

Let know if this resolves your problem

How do I hook the STR DE 575 up to my tv?


Usually if you have a Cable or Satellite box, you would hook up a Fiber Optic or Digital Coax cable from the Sat/Cable box to the Sony Receiver. Then for HD, an HDMI cable or componet cables from the Sat/Cable box to the TV

Lf-x1


are you saying that you want to set both computers in one network? here's the thing if i got you correctly, you said that one monitor is not functioning or something right? but anyways if you want to get both computer towers IP is for you to click on start then hit on RUN then type in CMD then enter to enter the command prompt then on the command prompt type-in ipconfig for you to know if you have the same IP address, default gateway, and subnet mask, IP address should have the same first three segment i.e is 192.168.192.XX and will differ on last segment to separate or assign it to a device.

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.:)

Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1


It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.
