I talked directly to Midland tech support about this same question. They told me that its mainly for enmass programming of like weather radios. You use one as the clone and connect others thru the PC connection. I still havent found out wether its a mono or stereo double ended cord.

Found this on http://www.radioreference.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-64323.html: The PC jack is for when they programmed the radio in the factory. There is no power going to this jack and No you can not hook it up to a PC.

Can i hook my computer to tv ?


Hello

You can connect your Sylvania LC320ss8 to a computer. There is a socket at the back of your TV to connect it with a PC via VGA cable. One end of that cable must be connected to TV, and the other end of the VGA cable must be connected to PC's monitor out jack.. You have to purchase on VGA cable for this purpose, and is available at most of the electronic spare part shops. A "mini-plug audio cable" also is needed to connect the audio from PC to TV. Its one end to be connected to PCs Audio Line Out jack and its other end to TVs PC in audio jack. Both Jacks can be located at the back side of the TV. After connecting it select the TV to receive PC signals according to its manual says. OK.

Hello there,

Just do a Windows Update. Of course by doing this, your windows copy of license should be guinuine, otherwise, it would cost you more trouble.

After updating, you need to reinstall the magic jack again.

Ive got a Uniden BC248 CLT Base Scanner. In the back of it, there are two holes for input/output of some sort, What is the diference in the am radio antenna vs. the antenna ?


Your scanner has four connections on the back. Looking at the rear, from left to right, are the power jack (10 volts AC, you need an adapter for this), an external speaker jack, the AM antenna connection, and the scanner antenna jack.

The AM antenna jack is for the reception of AM radio station signals. The scanner antenna jack is for police/fire etc, as well as FM signals.

In case you don't have a manual for your radio, it is available for free here:

You do not need a new sound card.

When you plug in the audio cable, can you still here sound coming from the computer speakers?

If so, you are likely using the wrong cable or plugging it into the wrong spot.

If not, you are likely plugging the cable into the wrong spot on your TV.

You can download the user manual here:
http://www.nodevice.com/user_manual/acer/notebooks/aspire_57105310.html , but typically your laptop will have a standard 3.55mm headphone jack on the front, side or back of the machine. From that jack, you should be able to run a cable like this [ http://www.mwave.com/mwave/SKUSearch_v3.asp?px=FO&scriteria=4322980 ] to your RCA in jack on your TV.

...it is possible your TV has more modern inputs like AVI, or HDMI and your laptop does too. Not knowing what sort of Samsung TV you have makes it difficult for me to speculate on what more modern connections might be better.

Bearcat BC144XL Scanner ~ no sound


Try it with an external speaker. The external speaker jack receives the audio from the scanner before it goes to the internal speaker. If the jack thinks there is still something plugged into it, the audio to the internal speaker is interrupted. If the jack is stuck, it may still work with an external speaker.

Plz explain me exactly for which purpose RJ-45 cable used ?


RJ -45 is a type of connector used on cat5, cat5e....etc cables to connect networked devices...the RJ stands for registered jack but there is really not much you really need to know about it....a RJ 45 JACK is a little bigger than a telephone jack, you'll notice the female type of input on your computer or laptop and the male end will be on the end of the cable that goes into this jack....hope this helps

Internet cable won't plug into phone jack on the back of the pc


on the rear of the pc you may have 2 plug slots, one for the nodem and one for the lan (ethernet cable)
modem port looks like this:e29bde8.jpg

lan (ethernet ports) look like this:ca0da14.jpg

you will notice that the modem is smaller that the ethernet port, look for port that the ethernet cable fits in because you have the right lead because your modem is cable not ADSL

hope this hepls

The reason the word "WIRED" is displayed on your screen is because there is something wrong with the PC/IF jack on the side. Use a little flashlight and try to see if something is jammed in that hole. If not then you can either send it in for service or you can service it yourself (you'll void the warranty if you dismantle your scanner). The jack is probably faulty and once it's removed your scanner should work fine. The pc/if jack is supposed to be used for connecting your pc to your scanner to transfer frequencies. This would save you lots of time if it were that simple. I've doinked around with it quite a bit and never really figured it out. I suppose you could call Radio Shack and ask for help but since they didn't include instructions in the manual for the pc/if feature, I'm betting that they don't know either. Bottom line- you can spend 6 hours trying to get the data transfer to work, or 2 hours typing in the frequencies. You don't need the pc/if port, so remove it, and badabing, you have a scanner that works. ps. you'll need basic soldering skills to do this. If you've never used a soldering iron then you better practice removing components from something thats already broken.
