Video Sender connection using a splitter and an RF modulator
« on: February 27, 2009, 11:02:13 AM »

  >!http://** HELP!!! http://     >!   

sender not working. I  have worked and reworked the setup w/ no luck!
Hi I have 2 TV  and all I get is snow

TV#1  sender unit  SONY has a TIVO, DVD,  Game Unit and VCR hooked into it.( I have no extra RCA connectors)  currently to get around the plug issue i have a splitter unit that allows me to split this out each- DVD,VCR and game Unit

TV#2 receiving- older Quasar  does  not  have RCA outlets.   VCR and is hooked via an RF modulator and the wires go from their to a splitter that allows me to switch from VCR to the game unit.

since i don't have any open RCA outlets on my SONY, my question how do i go about connecting this based on the  configuration described above.

All you need to do is use the cable box RCA outputs (if you have them). If needed you could try a "Y" connector to split one off.

Simplify your setup until you get it working.

Put DVD in player and get picture and sound on the Sony, then move the DVD RCA cables from the splitters to the Video Sender. Point the Video Sender antenna at the Video Receiver and take the RCA cables from the Video Receiver and plug into the same connectors you removed the DVD from. Do you get the picture and sound on the Sony? If so, the Video Sender/Receiver is working... at least for short range. Disconnect the Video Receiver cables from the Sony and move the Video Receiver to the Quasar and couple the cables to the directly to the RF modulator. Aim the antennas. Do you get a picture? If so troubleshoot your connection maze. If not, look at why signal is not getting from one room to the other and check RF modulator.

Good luck.

Try rearranging the sender/receiver units so your not sending through the TVs.
