Apr 11, 2013

If you love baseball and currently have satellite television, you may be running into problems. Satellite TV systems limit the number of televisions you can have before adding new satellite receivers onto your system. This can be frustrating if you have many televisions in your home. Sometimes only one or two family members enjoy watching a game on TV while others do not. This usually means that baseball fans have to find their own TV to watch the game on.

By using products like satellite multiswitches, you can split the signal from one receiver to multiple televisions without suffering from signal loss. This means that a two receiver home can split the signal of each receiver to multiple televisions. A satellite multiswitch makes it easy to enjoy the entertainment you want in any room of your house. Finally baseball fans can enjoy the games they want, when they want, where they want.

Multisiwtches are ideal for sports package subscribers who may have access to games from other broadcast areas. Now you can watch those games on different TVs without having to miss any of the action. It’s also great for homes that want to watch the same game on more than one TV at the same time. Simply install the multiswitch and enjoy the baseball season on every TV.

Find the perfect Blu-Ray Accessories

Mar 25, 2013

HDMI CablesSo you’ve got a great HDTV and a brand new Blu-Ray player and you’re ready for high quality entertainment. Before you get everything connected, here are a few accessories that could make your life simpler, or your entertainment experience even better.

Cables

In order to get the best picture and sound quality from your Blu-Ray player you’ll need to use a quality HDMI cable to connect the player to your high definition TV. These cables come in a variety of lengths to accommodate various installation applications.

Switches

If your high definition TV only has one or two HDMI inputs and you have multiple HDMI devices to connect, don’t resort to using lower quality inputs to connect your devices. With an HDMI switch you can connect multiple HDMI devices into a single switchbox that will only use one of your televisions HDMI inputs. Once your devices are all connected through the HDMI switcher you can easily choose which device you want to watch by changing input channels on the switch box.

Amplifiers

If you need to send your HDMI signal a long way you will need to amplify it so the signal does not degrade. You can send your digital audio and video signals through cat6 network cables or over wifi to devices in other parts of your home or business. Check out our selection of HDMI amplifiers and extenders to find the right solution for you.

Port savers

When connecting an HDMI cable to a wall mounted television that has rear mounted ports, it can be difficult to get plugs in and out. Kinking cables at a 90 degree angle also damages plug ends by putting stress on the cable and the ports. That’s why we carry port savers adapters to alleviate this stress. By turning your inputs 90 degrees cables and easily plug without creating any undue stress

Choosing an HDTV and Cables for a Porch Installation

Mar 4, 2013

outdoor patio areaWith warmer weather on its way, this is the time of year when people begin tidying up and prepping yards and porches for outdoor fun. For some people getting a back porch ready for the spring and summer seasons involves cleaning, setting up furniture, or even putting screens into porch windows. The new trend over the last year or two has been installing flat panel HDTVs on porches or covered outdoor seating areas.

Not every HDTV is designed for outdoor use. It’s important to consider some key factors when choosing the right TV for the job. Older LCD televisions can be negatively affected by temperature changes or exposure to moisture. Newer LED LCD televisions tend to be more resilient when it comes to porch use. It should be noted that these HDTVs are still susceptible to moisture damage, so installation should be limited to four season porches that offer full coverage from the elements.

Special water resistant HDTVs are also available on the market for installations where serious humidity would otherwise damage a TV. These televisions can be installed on open porches where they are shielded from direct rain but still exposed to ambient outdoor humidity. When paired with a durable HDMI cable an HDMI port saver can help angle your cable for clean wall mounting. This can also keep the cable from breaking down over time due to strain on the plug end.

The Power of Digital Coaxial Audio Cables

Feb 27, 2013

digital coaxial cableIf you’re still using the red and white RCA stereo connectors to send audio signals between your audio visual components then you should pay attention. There is a better way to transfer audio signals to and from today’s digital devices. A digital coaxial audio cable is a one plug solution that can improve your sound quality and broaden your audio horizons.

Digital coaxial cables look similar to the traditional RCA audio cables because they have the same RCA connector on the end. The most obvious difference is that there is only one signal cable instead of two. Don’t be fooled, unlike the old days where 2 separate signal cables were needed to transfer the left and right audio channel, a digital coaxial cable can send both signals on the same cable. In fact, digital coaxial cables support stereo audio as well as DTS and Dolby 5.1 surround sound. That means more connection options with a single cable.

In addition to connection options, these cables have a much higher bandwidth than their traditional analog RCA cables cousins. That translates to better signal transfer and bigger sound. These cables offer the best data transfer of digital audio signals making them perfect for connecting home theatre systems, MP3 player docking stations, and more.

Choosing and Connecting a Wireless Network Router

Feb 4, 2013

Connecting a Wireless RouterLike most people these days you may have multiple devices that utilize an internet connection. More often than not these devices are not wired directly into an Ethernet plug. Devices like smartphones, tablets, game consoles and internet ready televisions can all use a wireless signal to connect to the internet. This makes finding the right wireless router a challenge. You need to find something that will handle your homes unique demands for wireless data sharing.

For homes with high demand for wireless signal it may be a good idea to choose a multiband wireless router. These routers broadcast multiple wireless frequencies so your home electronics don’t have to compete for a connection. Typically these routers use a 2.4ghz and 5.1ghz signal to connect to your wireless devices. While the 2.4ghz signal travels farther, the 5.1ghz signal is less susceptible to signal interference from other household items like cordless phones or microwaves.

For homes with fewer wireless devices a single channel router would be sufficient. Once you’ve selected the best wireless router for your home, all you need to do is connect it. Simply connect a Cat6 patch cable from your broadband modem to the wireless router’s WAN port and you should be on your way to wireless internet connectivity.

Expand your Home entertainment with HDMI Wall Plates

Jan 31, 2013

HDMI WallplateIf you’re building or remodeling a home, consider installing HDMI wall plates in areas where you will install televisions. Wall plates are a great way to conceal wiring inside walls for clean and professional installations of wall mounted televisions. HDMI wall plates can also be used to connect different areas of the house to the same signal source. For example, if you have a Blu-ray player in one room that is connected to a wall plate, that plate can be wired to a plate in another room where you can connect a television and receive the Blu-ray signal.

HDMI wall plates are also a practical solution for bars or restaurants which often have several televisions running simultaneously. The wiring for the elaborate entertainment system can easily be concealed within the walls to prevent patrons from accidentally disconnecting anything.  Not only does this mean other patrons can enjoy uninterrupted television broadcasts, but it also prevents accidental damage to your audio visual equipment.

The best part about using HDMI cables to connect your audio visual equipment is that it provides a high quality video signal that meets high definition standards. The HDMI cable also carries both audio and video signal, so there is no need to mess with multiple wires to connect your devices, a single cable will do it all. When installed next to a power outlet an HDMI wall plate is a practical choice for simple TV installations.
