  1. How to make a custom USB cable for a Finis Neptune MP3 player?

    DIY Audio
    Someone gave me a swimming, underwater Finis Neptune MP3 player but the problem is the charging cable was not included. Since this is a waterproof MP3 player the cable is proprietary and it is impossible to find a cable (from the company or otherwise) without buying a second unit on eBay with...

  3. Will REW work with a display port cable vs an HDMI

    REW Forum
    Hey guys, it's been a while since I have been here. I just upgraded my subs to dual SVS SB16 Ultras. They sound great already but wanted to see if their onboard EQ can tweak the last bit of sound for me. My Microsoft Surface laptop doesn't have an HDMI out, but uses a display port out, which...

  5. DVD player optical output failure? Or bad cable?

    System Setup and Connection
    Having problems with my DVD player. Every time we use it, I have wriggle the optical cable where it plugs into the player to get 5.1 working (otherwise it defaults to Pro-Logic). Naturally I’d first suspect the cable, but I threw out another one just a couple of years ago and replaced it...
  6. HD Digital Cable vs. Direct TV HD

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    I've been a digital cable guy for a while now through Charter Communications here in souther California. The service has always been stellar but they've only got fifteen to twenty channels. This includes premiums like HBO and Showtime. So I'm thinking about going to Direct TV HD as they have...

    I am curious as to the maximum length of a HDMI ver. 1.3 cable that can still carry full 1080P along with all high def audio when that audio becomes available? Mike
  8. A great cable reference

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Caveat: I'm an engineer by trade, so I am naturally inclined to believe science over psychology. I'm skeptical of snake-oil type claims, and usually don't believe hype. That being said, I have MIT speaker wire in my theater, a tube amp system with awful distortion measurements (but sounds...
  9. New cable recommendations - speaker and preamp->amp

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I'm replacing a bunch of MIT cables I have. The speaker cables I have don't allow me to place my amps where I'd like. I'm putting my equipment rack in one corner of the room. My question...do I need to have my speaker cable lengths the same? ie...the right speaker is a LOT closer to the amp...
  10. Cable remote not recognizing HT

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Just installed a Panasonic HD tv and upgraded my cable (specs listed below). My problem is that the universal remote for the cable box will only recognize my JVC HT to turn it off. It won't turn it on with the tv and cable box and none of the HT/DVD function buttons work from the remote. The...
  11. Cable terminators: what's best?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    (Couldn't find a thread specifically for this -- just point if I missed it.) In a dedicated HT room, what's the preferred (ie: best sonically) method of terminating speaker cables? Someone once told me wall plugs are bad because they add a weakness to the run -- even the high-end plugs. They...

  13. Cable quality nutz.

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Just wanting to get a census on cable quality. Now I can hear the difference between ultra cheap cables and "good" cables but is there really noticable merit for getting a $5,000 set of speaker cables over a $100 set? I personally think that while there may be SOME difference, most people that...

  15. REW not recognising USB Midi cable

    REW Forum
    Hi. I have an FBQ2496 and am trying to use REW to update it over the midi connection. I have a no brand USB/Midi cable which installed using the windows XP drivers (Dated 2001?). If I look in device manager (Sound, Video, Game Section) the cable is listed and shows as working. If I look at the...

    I'm looking for a RCA audio cable which splits one RCA stereo connection into 3 or 4 RCA stereo connections... Do they make such a cable? How about a box? Thanks to all that respond!

    Hi there, I need to do a long run of optical. I'm thinking of ordering a 30 foot length from BlueJeansCable. Any comments on why that would not work?
  18. Which cable run... coax or speaker?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I'm gonna have a long run from the front to the back of my room with my DIY sub. I'm trying to figure out if it would be better to place the amp up front and make two 30' speaker runs or place the amp in the back with the sub and make a single 30' coax run. Is it six of one, half dozen of...

  20. Cable Options for REW Connections

    REW Forum
    The REW documentation shows RCA 75ohm shielded cable for the connections. I will have to run a cable 25' from my RS meter to my computer and then a 50' from my computer to my AV receiver input. Will cheap cables with 3.5 mm jacks (and appropriate end adapters) work? I can get a 25' and 75'...
