Hi, new here...need some help solving a few problems.
Okay I have a QIP6416 and I'm using it with a HD 26" TV. Everything is fine with this set up. HD looks stunning!
Here is the problem...On the other side of the room I recently picked up a Samsung 910mp 19" Monitor/LCD TV. It has a audio/video inputs/s-video/and coax input. Now when I used a splitter and ran a singal to the coax on the 19" I only get a 10-15 channels. I don't know if that's normal but I've tried changing the options (i.e, standard and ota) OTA I get only 4-5 channels but with the standard cable I get 10-15 channels. I also tried connecting s-video from back of the cable box and I seem to get all the channels but no sound. The other problem with the s-video connection is I can't change the channels unless it's from the box which negates having a 2nd tv. So now what can I do to get the maximum amount of channels with audio on the 2nd tv with
1. Not having to buy a 2nd box
2. I can control the channels on the tv
3. Did I mention audio?
I don't see any coax output from the cable box nor do I see any audio/video outputs whcih aren't alreayd taken by my main tv.
When I had COX I had a TV downstairs that was barely used so I wanted some channels on it. The rep came and just connected a coax straight to the tv w/out a box and I got all the standard channels upto 80-90. I don't see why I can't get the same results here? Am I doing something wrong or is it just not possible to connect a 2nd tv and get the standard 70-80 channels (fox, nbc, comcast, espn discovery etc)?
What do I need to do? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
