How to Get the Best Results Out of Your Home Theater System


Minneapolis Home Theater Systems Experts

You probably have or are planning to get more than one TV set up in your home. With good planning and simple customization, home automation providers can give you a home theater system that gives the best picture quality that can be distributed to all the TV sets around the house.

The basics of RF wiring for Home Theater Systems

There are two ways of getting your home theater system wired. These two types are known as the Daisy Chain and the Home Run. A Daisy Chain uses less wire and as a result consumes lesser time in the initial installation. The only problem with this system is that when adding an outlet, one wrong wire can mean no picture on all the TVs that are connected to the system. This is the reason why many home automation installation providers recommend using Home Run wiring when installing a home theater system for the first time. For the people who have an existing Daisy Chain wiring installed, there is no need for rewiring as long as you are not adding a splitter. The Daisy Chain wiring system will also require taps. The Federal Government regulates how strong a signal you can connect to your TV, the standard is usually 15.5 DB or more. Trying to deliver any signal stronger than this can interfere with communications in other houses in the area. A TV normally gives out a woven pattern when the signal is too strong and a snowy picture when the signal is too weak.

After Installation of your Home Theater System

After the home theater installation has been hooked up, you can kick back and enjoy the quality of great picture and surround sound experience. Home theater systems can last quite a while without the need of any fine tuning. It is best to make the adjustments in the surround sound and video quality once you have had the time to familiarize yourself with the home theater system. Making adjustments can be easier by listening to different kinds of music and movies on the home theater system. By taking notes on how you and your family use the automation system, you can develop cheat sheets which will enable you to program better shortcuts and macros for the home automation installation. Another important point to note is that while tuning your home theater system you can use your own CDs and DVDs; it is better to test the tones of your speakers and video tests on specialized test discs that are provided by DVDs like Audio Source LLC5 and Avia’s Guide to home theater. After the home theater installation is complete you may also experience rattles and buzzes while a movie is playing. This is due to the fixtures and furniture present in the room. These annoying sounds can be stopped by simply caulking or applying glue where necessary, and also by tightening up loose screws. [sc:insertbutton]
