Attach the coaxial cable to this output the same way that you attached it to the cable box. Now we have to bring something into it. I thought I would ask the question before instead of after I made the purchase! I pulled out the tapes because grandson will be visiting tomorrow. Hi Kelsi, It seems like you have it all connected correctly.
That is the easy bit. So everything works great now and I appreciate your excellent article and helpful reply!. The coaxial input on your cable box resembles a metallic cylinder with a hole in the middle and screw threads, while the coaxial cable has an attachment resembling a needle. Instead they only output one single audio channel mono audio. With your kind patience and explanations via emails back and forth I was able to successfully get everything working. Some use a combination of yellow and green.
So we're going to take this old rabbit ear I guess off, pull it out, get rid of it, and down here the only way we can hook something into the unit is through this cable-like connection. If this is the case, you may need to go into the menu and tell it to use the input as a composite input. Usually, in a tri-stranded cable, the Left and Right audio jacks will be White and Red. We're going to grab our coaxial cable here and simply put it in, little copper piece will do, and we spin it until it's nice and tight. There are two basic things I would suggest checking. Plug the needle into the center of the coaxial input, then screw the head of the cable clockwise to tighten the connection.
The top right red socket is for the right audio out. They require the red, white and yellow cables to be plugged into the corresponding plug-ins. Satellite receivers typically have several input and output ports on the back of the unit. In some cases the cord may have cracked internal wiring. Make sure that you have a coaxial cable. But I can suggest some general things to check. Well, it's a little device that you can get at your local electronics store that allow you take your coaxial or cable-y cable type of thing and allow you to send down information through a more modern connection.
All you need is a stereo audio cable—which, again, will look familiar to anyone with a home stereo. Remember, you can always ask the sales clerk to show you the back of the set. Below this yellow socket for video in is the corresponding white and red sockets for the left and right audio in. Firstly the yellow cable could be faulty — I would try another one. You need an output one to use the Video and audio out. For a more detailed explanation of component video see this or article to learn more about composite video.
On the left hand side you should see the Audio right red and left white input sockets. The blue and red inputs are for the colour information of the picture. The video jack will be yellow. I'm Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert saying stream you later. This article was co-authored by our trained team of editors and researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness. However, using that form of connection and nothing works not even the sound. All right, that's all well and good.
Subtitles Hi, I'm Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert. Buy any cables that you don't have. Composite is when all the video information is on the one yellow outlet. Attach the coaxial cable to the cable box. Like super video or composite outputs.
Hi Lorraine, Without knowing the models involved, it seems you have generally connected them correctly. The user can select the desired input source on the home theater controller. Get the right cables for each item. Check your cables to make certain you have them all plugged in the right place. Coaxial cables have the same connector on both ends—a hollow metal cylinder with a pin in the middle—and they often have a ring around each end that can be used to tighten the cable's connection to the port.
A lot of the televisions for years like this little guy right here simply only had one connection in the back, the one for the antennae or the cable. Put a little notch at the top and the square at the bottom, boom, and we've hooked it all together. When you do hit play, do you hear any sound at all? If we have that antennae that I hadn't tossed aside, we would attach it here or your cable goes here. This works exactly the same as the lead above — use whichever one is available to you. Geoff Hi Geoff, Thanks for replying so quickly! I suspect the one you are using is connecting to the input rather than the outputs.
