Question about Sony LocationFree Base Station

I can't connect to my Location Free base station remotely. The whole idea about the product is to watch your TV away from your home. Could anyone help?

How do you connect the antenna and get channels to work?


First make sure that your Input is TV. Use the Input button on the remote (to the right of 0) or on the side of the TV (lowest button). To watch OTA channels, after connecting the appropriate antenna for your location with a coaxial cable to your Antenna In port, press Menu then use the arrows to select the Setup submenu. Press Enter to access the submenu and select Installation. Then select Terrestrial and then Input Configuration. Here select Antenna as your input. Press Enter to save. Then scan for channels by returning to the Terrestrial sub menu and select Channel Program to scan all available channels.

Since digital signals are either sufficient for your tuner to interpret or give No Signal, you need to select your antenna and point it with care. Go to anntennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get information on the stations that you should be able to get in your location. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but still gives a conservative list of available stations. TVfool gives stations depending on the color code of the antenna (indoor, outdoor, amplified) and their directions. If you are sharing the antenna signal with multiple TVs, you may need an amplified splitter. (If you do have an amplifier, you may want to test removing it from the line and directly connecting the 37HL17 to the antenna. When amplifiers get damaged they can turn into signal filters which block the signal completely.)

If you have the correct antenna, check if another TV receives the stations. If so, you may have a bad tuner on the TV. (Some TVs have better tuners than others and pick up the stations even with lower signal strength.)

I hope this helps.

(I use an outdoor antenna and antennaweb indicates that I should only get the stations from 10 miles away. I actually get those from 30 miles away as well. When I set up a neighbor's TVs with indoor antennas, one only gets the stations 10 miles away and the other gets the stations that are 30 miles away. The two antennas couldn't be rotated to the same direction.)

I have a KX-TG6700 base station and 4 Handsets. When I have been calling on the handsets I have recently found that there is static on the line. Later I realized that there is problem with the DTMF being...


The KX-TG6700 manual at: http://www.panasonic.ca/PDP/OperatingInstructions/kxtg6700-oi-eng.pdfhttp://www.panasonic.ca/PDP/OperatingInstructions/kxtg6700-oi-eng.pdf

States:

For best performance
Base unit location/avoiding noise
The base unit and other compatible
Panasonic units use radio waves to
communicate with each other.
For maximum distance and noise-free
operation, we recommend the following:
LPlacing the product away from electrical
appliances.
LPlacing the base unit in a HIGH and
CENTRAL location with no obstructions
such as walls.
LRaising the antennas vertically.
LIf you use the handset near a microwave
oven which is being used, noise may be
heard. Move away from the microwave
oven and closer to the base unit.
LIf you use the handset near another
cordless phone’s base unit, noise may
be heard. Move away from the other
cordless phone’s base unit and closer to
your base unit.

Have you considered all these points?

Is there a way you can move the base station to another location in your house to see if the problem get better? I don't beleive your base station is faulty, I suspect interference from something.

I don't think the 2.4GHz set is causing any issues, but you never know, try unplugged it for a while to investigate.

If you do determine that the base station is faulty there probably isn't many options to get it repair other than sending it to Panasonic. May be cheaper to buy a new base station to go with your extra handsets.

Good Luck!

Eaton Home Heartbeat Starter Pack Description


This is all you need (plus any additional sensors) to know the last status of your sensors when you are home or away from home. The HomeKey takes a "snapshot" of the last sensor status as you leave your house. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that you really did unplug the curling iron or shut the garage door.

The HOMEheartbeat Starter Pack contains the Base Station, a HomeKey, and an Open/Closed Sensor. Everything you need to get started. You simply plugin the Base Station and program your sensor(s) with your HomeKey.

Note: Full use of this product to view your sensors status live requires the Broadband Gateway Extender with a high-speed internet connection and monthly Service Plan. A home telephone line (not a cellular phone) can be used if you purchase Remote Alert packages through Eaton's HOMEheartbeat web site.

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

Hello, I have a General Electric 27GT 277 CRT Television, however, when I went to do a channel search it didn't return any channels. Although I was watching 6 free channels before, I don't have...


Hello,
Allow me to try and assist you based on your situation.
Most FREE channels went digital, more and more will disappear from the RF spectrum as digital moves into play. This tv is by far not digital thus it uses RF "radio frequency" that is transmitted from a tower to your rabbit ears then converted into the tv to make a picture and sound.
Here is a suggestion that you may consider, will not break the budget. Radio Shack carries a digital set top box that hooks to a antenna thus down converts the digital to analog for you so you can enjoy far more then 6 channels without having to pay the cable man or satellite tv company for your local stations.
Here is a link to the box I am talking about http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939
This box will help you get those channels back, will get you watching more TV.
Now for the remote issue, This box comes with a programable remote that will work for your tv so it kills 2 birds with one stone. You could also order one from remotes.com or 1800-remotes if you like.
We do hope this information does help you with your problems.
Thanks for using Fixya.com

Connecting Lenovo Tablet to Sony XBR TV


Hi swampole,
You'll need to purchase a Sony Location Free base station and software (included). Try this link:
http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SearchCatalog?storeId=10151&langId=-1&catalogId=10551&in_dim_search=&keyword=location+free&gobutton.x=0&gobutton.y=0

The Sony Location Free base station can transmit your TV, or most any video signal for that matter, to your laptop as long as it has the Location Free software installed, wi-fi capability, and is within range. It can also transmit your programming over the web so you can watch via broadband and not even need to be home! The only drawback I have experienced is that if the signal is not strong enough, there is a choppiness to the video stream (not unlike watching videos online sometimes), and there is a 4 second delay due to encryption/decryption, but this really does not matter if you're not watching a "live" feed.
I have installed these units for clients and use one as well from time to time to watch TV from rooms without one. Good luck and hope this helps!
