A Guide to Setting Up Your Home Theater
Now that so many people have big screen TVs, it is easy to see why the creation of a home theater has become quite desirable. But, the miles of wires and badly labeled cables required to put it all together might be a little scary. That’s why we would like to provide you with a guide to setting up your home theater. Takes these into consideration:
- Signal Flow– Yes that sounds a little techy to the untrained ear, but it’s really not as difficult as it seems. Your signal will represent the Netflix TV show, music from Pandora, or the Blu-Ray movie you are playing. When you are able to follow this flow, then you can get all the outputs and inputs properly positioned. Learn the direction of the signal. Then establish your connections accordingly. Learn more.
- HDMI- HDMI cables are used to connect almost everything within your home theater. And, you don’t have to buy the most expensive ones because the cheap ones work just the same. Keep that in mind before you choose a $50 cable over a $5 one. The image and sound you get will be the same so long as the cable works.
- Speakers- If you are incorporating speakers into your home theater, and who wouldn’t, you will need speaker cable. Choosing to utilize speaker cables over the HDMI version will provide you with a slight sound difference, and though it’s slight, it will have a considerable effect. Read this.
- Settings– Every product you have connected to will have its own setup requirements. But, if you have successfully provided these products with the proper input and output positions, working with the settings will be considerably easier. There will probably be an auto-correct option, but if something seems out of place, or not functioning as desired, don’t hesitate to access the menu for that product and manually rectify the issues. A typical problem we’ve encountered, is having the soundbar (or receiver) set to hall or stadium. No doubt the reverb generated by those settings can get old quite quickly.
- Remotes- We all love our remotes. So programming them is a valuable part of the home theater set up process. Unfortunately, you might find that using multiple remotes is less challenging than trying to make a universal version work for you. However, if you really want to program one, understand that you will definitely need the assistance of the owner’s manual.
And now, with the home theater established within your newly acquired modular home, you can sit back and enjoy all the Netflix movies you can handle. If you’ve still got set up questions, this might help.
