I wish my 30 HDS had cabinets above the couch like yours.

I am ordering and staging electronic parts and pieces for my audio upgrade.

What's needed is more volume and better sound quality from from radio and TV; I also didn't like the Dish Receiver away from the radio on the cheesy bracket I made.

So, new head unit with bluetooth and remote (Kenwood); 2 Memphis amps, a 4 channel for speakers and one 250W mono for a new Memphis Sub in a shallow box, I'll build. Adding two new 6x9 JL Audio 3 ways for the living room ceiling.... is here or ordred.

I moved the Rcvr to the pantry cabinet (next to the radio) so audio feed (aux) to radio is easy, as well as, feed from the Carry Out dish.

The amps (4 channel and Sub) will mount to the side of the panty cabinet (behind door) to show them off, as well as the capacitor.

I also have ordered a HDMI via 2x-Cat5e adapters to get video from Dish receiver to TV.

To get audio from TV to the audio system, I am going to connect TV to the head unit via bluetooth adapter, but have wiring in place if necessary. The head unit allows 2 devices at a time, so I can stream from my smart phone too, hopefully.

This is a new thing for me, so not sure how all this will work.

I also lowered the TV (more eye level with recliners) and will build a cabinet for storage and to hide wires / outlets that will mount above TV on wall. I'm doing that today as well as proving the HDMI port on the receiver is good and to see if I can control volume to the RCA audio out jacks via wireless remote will work. If I can, I might add a small amp and small speakers in the new cabinet. I don't think it will work, though.

Sorry, typical me... long winded.

WW, you amaze me at the projects and TIME you have to work on your upgrades. Please continue to be "long winded" and share your experiences with the group...

I found out today that the audio jacks on the TV are inputs and I don't see a headset jack. It looks like the only way to get audio out is via optical. I know some of the sound bars have that input. I'm glad I checked this out, because I thought of adding an amp I have and two 6" speakers to the new cabinet (also not built), but now I know that won't work. So the cabinet will be to hide the wiring and adapters and add more storage. I will probably make that tomorrow, if all goes well.

I also got my SlideOut Kover and the JL Audio 6x9s via UPS today.

My HDMI port on the receiver which hasn't worked, or so I thought worked like a champ today. I don't have the HDMI / Cat5e adapter yet, so I just hooked it up to test.

All I accomplished today was to change the slip in thingy so the new head unit will work; mounted a piece of 1/2" plywood (to mount the amps on); mounted the Memphis SRX4.300 amp (I can't believe how heavy it is... looks like a quality piece); terminated the three Cat5e cables on male plugs (568B); Put on a few more Phlip-It latches; took some pictures and cleaned up some.

I need to get in touch with the forum techie. I took pictures on my Sony camera; transferred to the better PC and still it fails to upload file. Not being about to post pictures is frustrating. I have to be careful what I say, the language police are there making sure we stay politically correct and don't offend anyone. Especially if the butt of your joke is a quarterback god. Can I say "butt"? It is an idiom... a figure of speech

You know you are losing it when you reply to your own posts... actually I'm adding a thought (that's my story).

Is the 26" TV without headset or RCA input really a problem.... a resounding NO! It subtly shouts "upgrade!". The only question to ask is it down to Walmart for a 32" today or tomorrow!

The 26 would look nice in the bedroom or garage. Which means getting an HDMI splitter and another HDMI / Cat5e converter and running more Cat5e. If I just knew and old telecom network guy

Now I'm laughing at my own sillyness.

A cheapskate would simply open the TV housing and "bug' onto the existing speaker wires... and if it was an OCD (CDO alphabetized) cheapskate he would bug on AND add a headset jack, canabalized from an old ra-didy-o. Hello!

The sooner someone figures out why WW can't upload a photo the quicker my replies get longer, but infinetly more interesting

Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional!

WW,
Can you confirm your errors when trying to upload your pictures from your PC? You had done it plenty of times in the past, so I know it's not a procedure thing. I'm guessing some "setting" was turned on or off with your profile. You still have the "paper clip"/attach file icon when typing the message, right?

Let's get you back to posting pictures....
