Thus to see any of these screens anywhere in the house, we just need to
select its channel on the TV. In addition, due to the
system, I can control the viewed VCRs as well. My wife
really like being able to see the kids in their rooms. We can put them
to bed, and still be able to keep an eye on them even while we are
guests in the rec room two floors down from them.
This system was accomplished using several of Radio
and a Channelplus
. The Radio Shack box has unfortunately been
equivalent boxes are
available from Channel Plus, Blonder-Tonque and others. The RS box
two inputs in addition to the cable/antenna feed. The channel of each
can be selected, and I cascaded several boxes to handle the multiple
inputs. The Channelplus box is digitally controlled, so no
to adjust on it.
In addition to the above, we have your commonly available
Home Theater system with a Sony 32" TV. In addition to the normal five
channel setup, I also have a 16" subwoofer built into the house with a
200 Watt amplifier.
On a side-note, while testing the subwoofer during
played a test CD
with various test tones. The low frequency rumble that ensued caused
dishes in my kitchen to rattle. We enjoy our system so much that it is
easy to see why this is a big fad in new homes.
Similar to whole-house video, the audio sources can also be
as FM radio station channels. However, there is no pressing need for
at the moment.
