    Mitsubishi DLP WD-65732. I dropped satellite a couple of years ago and have been using antenna input. The TV has 2 coax inputs. Both stopped working. I can switch back/forth between inputs from the menu, then do a channel search, wait for it to complete, but it doesn't find any. The other...

  5. Fiber optic to coax?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    My father in law sent this. Not sure if it makes sense. is it as easy as a $20 converter box? Hey, Drew- We just replaced our TV, but the Bose speaker system could not be hooked up since the new set only has a spot for a fiber optic cable and the speakers [of course] operate on coaxial...
  6. RCA audio vs Coax

    Audio Processing
    Is there any difference between a standard red and white RCA audio cable and two coax cables with RCA connectors on each end? Essentially I don't think there is a difference. But why does a standard RCA cable have two wires inside the cable and a coax just one?? Does the meshed wire...
  7. L/R Analog Audio Signal over Coax

    System Setup and Connection
    I'm trying to figure out how a L/R Analog audio signal (red/white) can be connected and passed through a coax cable. I just don't understand how two wires for the Left/Right audio signal can be passed through the single wire of the coax and then be converted back to the Left and Right channels...

    I have a Philips 47PFL7432D television. I have it sitting next to a window and it recently got water on it. I tested its various components and determined that the problem was the mainboard/mother board. I ordered a replacement part of the same model number, and installed it. My TV currently...
  12. P.Audio coax experience?

    DIY Speakers
    I've become a dual-concentric fanatic; maybe I'm deluded but I sense a coherence in the sound output. I have a pair of Manley ML-10 speakers; Tannoy SGM-10 drivers in custom boxes with Mastering Lab cross-overs. I recently got a pair of Fostex RP60 [RM765] 6.5 inch coax monitors [satellite...

    System Setup and Connection
    I made a critical error in the design and wiring of my Home Theater systems which, hopefully, people setting up their systems could avoid if they are rewiring or installing flatscreens. Flatscreens are kind of new and unique. To make the installation look the best, all of the cables and power...

    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...
