PS: I forgot to add that the music I've loaded from CDs works fine, too.
Jerry and I both tried that independently. Results: effing nada.
Hi sk8eycat, is there a speaker emblem in the lower right corner of your screen, on the bottom tool bar? If so, left click on it. A vertical movable bar should appear. If it does, click and drag the horizontal arrow up the scale to the loudness you want. If this doesn't help, maybe someone else has a clue.
I have a;sp been looking for a group for computer tech advice, because even though I have been taking classes , I don't really know Jack about HOW the things work. I drove cars for more than 50 years without knowing much about internal combustion engines, but this is different.
Anyway, during the past week I have had audio problems.... whenever I go to YouTube, or click on a video that someone sends me a video, the sound is very faint, and I have to turn the volume on my speakers all the way up to what a studio guy I used to know called "JESUS CHRIST!!!" to hear anything at all.
However, I have no problems with the sound and music on gaming web sites, or the effing commercials on web sites. I just heard from a friend in DC who is having the same problem with his brand new Mac Book. We are both stuck with Yahoo as our ISP. (Via our telephone service...different companies, but they both go through Yahoo - Yay-Hoo.)
Is this a plot to squeeze more money out of us?
BTW Charter Cable TV keeps raising their rates, and cutting back on the channels available on Expanded Basic. I'm seriously considering going back to using an antenna on the roof. (We were warned...before cable became available in SoCal...but the antenna reception really sucked....)
thanks for the info, Joseph. I'll go ahead and buy another JVC. I appreciate your help.
No. The brand of the device has no impact on which frequencies it uses. The available frequencies are dictated by the FCC, and the standard on which the device runs dictates which of the available frequencies it uses.
Even if you have two devices using the same standard and frequency, there are multiple channels for each frequency. Do you remember the old-school wireless phones which would have a little 'Channel' button to allow you to switch between different channels, if you were experiencing interference on a given channel? Newer wireless devices have the same feature, only the channel switching is handled automatically. Devices scan the available channels for potential interference and pick a good one.
Help-!! I was looking for a nerd group. I'm not a nerd, and that is why I was looking for one. I have a question concerning headsets that are used with the TV.
My wife and I sit side by side at our computers, and listen to different TV programs with headsets. We have a JVC, and a Radio Shack Auvio. The Auvio is uncomfortable, and keeps breaking physically. We would like to both use JVC, but wonder if using two JVC's would interfere with each other frequency-wise. Wouldn't they both be transmitting at the same frequency?
Err, does it actually work? "Having all of the required working parts" and "not coming apart when you put it in an actual jet and try to use it" are two different things.
