How do we connect a DVD to a TV


Hi, Go to Radio shack store and get a cable signal splitter. Its a small device that splits 1 line into 2 or 3, so that you can run more players or recorders on 1 line in. See the guys there for more options.

I disconnected power from the tv to install carpet & im not sure if iam hooking it back up correctly


danny_burse

I am assuming when you say you disconnected power from the TV to install carpet, you disconnected the cables from the receiver to your TV. Depending upon your installation, you have a cable that comes from the dish located outside that is connected to a splitter and has 2 cables coming off the splitter. The 2 cables will connect to SAT 1 and SAT 2 on the back of the receiver. Your TV 2 connection either goes directly to your TV 2 or goes to a second separator, connected to the UHF/VHF connector. If you still have problems with the connections, please email me at ray.calo@dishnetwork.com and I will assist you further.

I use the RCA model 425 modem through Media Com. My wiring for internet enters a bedroom. Now I also want to hook up a tv using this modem. A Media Com employee suggested using a splitter. Will this work...


Theoretically you can because the purpose your cable serves is a conduit for data transmissions. Just a few cautions here. Just as in any circuit, the more the wire is spliced,split, or anything that taps into it on its way . to the modem will add resistance to the line, thus it could degrade or "slow down" your signal. There is a splitter I know mediacom haves that will help with lessening this effect.

You will need to split the signal with a 900mgz splitter between the living room and other room. if your pic is fuzzy you have a bad splitter or bad cable, try replacing these one at a time and it should clear up. If your getting a sat pic but ti is fuzzy its for sure in the line somewhere fro teh splitter.

Our first tv has a booster amplifier on the coaxial cable, i have purchase a new tv and need to know what product i need to us to attached the new tv's coaxial cable too. We have used a splitter box, but...


To have good picture quality you need zero DB (decibels) for one TV without a splitter. You can use and inline amplifier for each individual TV hooked up to the cable input with a output leg connected to each TV. If your house in wired in parallel (one main input hooked up to a splitter with all of the other TV's run off of the splitter) you can use a whole house amplifier hooked up inline between the input line and the splitter. If you house is wired in series (the input goes to the first outlet, then splitter to second outlet and so forth) each splitter knocks your signal levels down 50% each splitter. Amplifier placement depends on how the home is wired and how many TV's are in the home. Splitters can be either balanced (50/50 split) or imbalanced (75/25) etc. On a two way splitter 75% of the signal goes out one leg, while 25% goes out the other (usually for FM transmissions). If you have a three way splitter the signal is divided by the number of output legs. Splitters do go bad as well (sometimes only one leg). You can also buy an amp that is multi- port (which splits the signal and amplifies in one unit/ one input and 2,3,4 outputs). Amplifiers are electric and there is no way that the splitter can interrupt the power that would take all the signal away. If you meant that it drops the signal level so the picture is unacceptable, that's different. If you have another splitter in the house try using that one, the other might be bad. All in all you can purchase most anything you need at a Radio Shack and are very inexpensive. Amps can be purchased in different gains (boost). +10db, etc. I cannot believe that your cable company is giving you such minimal signal that 1. you need an amp?, and 2. that one splitter drops your picture to nothing? Your line extenders (amps for the lines that feed your neighborhood) might have problems or need adjustment by the lazy, cheap, cable co. also. I had problems with my cable company (when I had one) my modem would not stay online. 4 months later, they diagnosed the problem and my drop (RG56 cable line that feeds my home from their tap in the cable box outside) was bad. My friend could stay online and 2 months later comcast adjusted their amps (line extenders) in the neighborhood and then he was fine. I know this is a lot to digest, but I'm just trying to draw a clear picture so you can understand it all. I hope this helps and good luck!

Tiling on HDTV


FIXED MY TILING PROBLEM-FINALLY !!!!
After months and months of freezing pictures and audio drop outs, I took it upon myself to see if I could fiquire this out.

In the attic I located my main cable feed was connecting to a 5-way splitter. That means my signal is being split 5 different time to go to 5 different TV jacks.

FIRST, I disconnected the main cable line from the 5-way splitter and connected it to a 2-way splitter.
SECOND, I connected the line that goes to my main TV (cable box) to the 2-way splitter.
THIRD, I connected a cable from the 2-way splitter back to the 5-way splitter.

THAT'S IT !!!!

My other TVs which don't use a cable box, never had any tiling issues, just the HDTV with the cable box. So now the signal to the HDTV is only split twice instead of 5 times.

Dish satellite system with two tvs and 1 hdtv cable


What are you splitting? Coax - just split the out to tv line. A\V cables or componet cables you'll need to split all wires (a\v- yellow and at least white, red to if you want stereo. componet- green, red, blue for video and red and white for audio.

Sat signal reaches only 1 cable outlet


you need to split the line at the receiver box. The signal from the Dish needs 18vdc to the receiver or you'll get NADA.. If I understand you correctly???

Lost satellite signal after hooking up an hdtv


Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

You're talking about picture-in-picture. Simply hook up a second source or split the one cable input you have now into two leads with a splitter from somewhere like Radio Shack. Then bring up the PIP and select the input. Now you have two different things to watch each from their own channel. This wont work if you have dish... But you could watch the DVD perhaps if you hook it into one of the available inputs in the back of the Tv and select that input in PIP mode.
Good Luck!
