Organize your Home Theater System with these Tips on Cables and more

As we add new screens, devices, cables, and accessories to our home theater systems, things can get tangled pretty quickly. Keeping things organized is a strategic endeavor and one requiring ongoing maintenance. Thankfully, an organized home theater and entertainment system is easy to set up. Here’s a few tips.

Dust.

Home theater screens like TVs, computer monitors, and other A/V components are magnets for dust. Certain areas can also accumulate grease spots from fingerprints over time. If you have a microfiber cloth, this is great at removing fingerprints and other smudges while also taking care of the dust.

 

Hide cables.

Get cable ties and use them to simplify your A/V system. Home theater systems have cables of many kinds which have to be used, i.e. USB, HDMI, connecting cables, charging cables, etc. Cable ties can keep related cables together and also set them up along the boundaries of furniture, keeping the room clean as a whole.

 

Surge protector.

Buy a high quality surge protector with enough outlets to run all components from it. A surge protector is there to predominantly give everything a single entry point to power. It also can add to the home theater look.

 

Mount your TV.

If you want to keep your home theater system organized, one of the best ways to save on space is by mounting your TV. Reclaim some space in your living room by mounting. The installation is simple although the cables will be more visible. To this point, those cable ties we mentioned earlier are going to come in handy. Browse PrimeCables’ various TV wall mounts to see what’s best for your setup.

 

Get a TV stand.

A thin TV stand lining up against the wall is a place to put your speakers, any additional devices that need to be hooked up to your TV screen, be used as a bookshelf, and/or be used for a number of different things. It goes without saying but not everything can be mounted. Consider a TV stand that can accommodate your cables and anything else you intend to include in your home entertainment system.

Don’t drown yourself in cables, dust, unclean screens, and an overall unorganized system. Shop PrimeCables to purchase everything you need to take your home entertainment system to the next level. Disorganization is tough and can be a frustrating trying to wade through. Clean that clutter and improve your home theater system today with PrimeCables.

5 Tricks to get the Best Reception with your TV Antenna

Correct placement of your TV antenna, whether you’re working with an indoor or outdoor antenna, is what’s going to yield the best reception. For some quick tricks and tips on how to maximize your channel pick-up on your TV antenna, here are five things to keep in mind.

30fea-PrimeCables-Cab-AV-0966V-Antennas-for-HDTV-Wireless-High-Gain-VHF-UHF-Combo-HDTV-Outdoor-Antenna.jpg

Locate the broadcast towers.

If you don’t know where to aim your antenna, you could be getting as less as half as much channels as you could. Aim your antenna in the direction of the broadcast tower. There are sites online showing where the broadcast tower is in various Canadian regions which can help.

 

Place your HDTV antenna near a window.

The less obstructions between your antenna and the broadcast towers, the better. Yes, ceilings and thick walls count as obstructions. Placing your indoor HDTV antenna near a window is your best bet. They’re your best chance at getting a clean line of sight however beware of heat absorption from the sun which could damage your antenna by bending or warping.

 

Place your antenna high.

To get the best reception, place your HDTV antenna as high as you can. This is why outdoor antennas pick up more channels typically than the indoor alternative. If your TV’s down in a basement, consider placing your antenna on a higher floor with a longer coaxial cable heading down.

 

Keep your antenna away from metal.

Metal can cause interference with the digital signal and block reception. If you place your HDTV antenna near metal burglar bars, a metal bug screen outside the window, or anything metal in close proximity, you may run into trouble. Furthermore, if you have a metal roof, installing an antenna in an attic space or on your roof is unlikely to yield the best results.

 

Testing different placements.

Plugging in your antenna and receiving maximum channel pick-up is unlikely. You may have to experiment a little. Test different locations and find the position you like best. Receiving the best reception, you’re going to need to move things around, scan, re-scan, and keep going.

 

TV antennas from PrimeCables are a cord cutters’ delight! Pick up free, over-the-air TV just like thousands of other Canadians are doing. It comes with no monthly bill, and you can save hundreds of dollars off your utility bills by getting rid of your cable or satellite subscription. There’s no need to mess around with the rising costs of cable TV. Instead, become a cord cutter and choose an HDTV antenna from PrimeCables.

Should I Use a Projector for my Home Theater and How to Connect your Smartphone

Although so many of are chasing 4K TVs, 1080p TVs, and all sorts of flat-screens, going with a projector for your home theater system can be way more affordable alternative.

Let us share a little secret about home theater projectors. The screen size is adjustable and you can connect your smartphone and/or almost any device to your projector. Whether you’re watching Netflix, enjoying a full-length movie on your Blu-ray player, or catching up with something on your DVR, you can still enjoy all these things on a projector.

 

All in all, you won’t need to spend $1,000s on a massive flat-screen. You can get the same sized screen with a projector at a fraction of what you’d spend on a 4K TV. There’s almost no comparison, cost-wise. This is a massive reason why many Canadians choose to go with a projector over a screen.

 

Using a projector, you’ll also notice how it saves on space. For example, you can mount a projector against the back wall and you don’t need to contend with setting it up on a table. You’ll also save on not having a big screen on a mount or TV table. It can be a big change for some households but we’ve heard very few regrets after they’ve made the change. You don’t even need to have a projector screen set up per se in order to enjoy your projector.

 

If you’re looking to connect your smartphone, it’s very easy to do. If your projector or anything connected to it such as a media streaming box is not Bluetooth-enabled, you can use an HDMI to USB cable or adapter to make that connection. As long as you have the right equipment, it’s as easy as plugging in your smartphone to get it synced up.

 

Universally speaking, so much of us prefer flat-screens but we haven’t tried a projector as an alternative. If you’re serious about creating a theatrical home theater system, a projector really does make it feel like you’re watching in a theater. It’s a great way to enjoy 1080p movies, binge-watching Netflix, watching sports with friends, or enjoying yourself on a night-off. Consider it the next time you’re looking to upgrade to something new for your home theater system.

 

Shop projectors, projector mounts, and projector screens at PrimeCables, and see big discounts you won’t find anywhere else. Affordable and yet amazingly powerful, projectors make for an amazing tool in your home theater arsenal. Shop these products and more at Canada’s own PrimeCables.

Whether it’s to binge-watch your favourite Netflix series, to entertain a passion as an amateur movie buff, or you simply want to enjoy having a home entertainment center all your friends can be jealous of, here’s top 4 picks on how to do it.

 

You gotta have a great TV

There’s a number of affordable 4K TVs and 1080p TVs available that can work wonders at increasing the appeal of a regular TV room. Ideally, you never want to shoot lower than 720p in high-definition picture quality. The wider the color gamut, the more HDR brightness, and the more inputs, the better. Consider one preferably with at least two HDMI ports.

A Bluetooth soundbar is a big upgrade

Although surround sound used to be where it’s at, these days, it’s less about being surrounded and more about what you can do with your home theater audio sound. A wireless Bluetooth soundbar is compact, sleek and modern, and provides high quality sound in a very smart way. Bluetooth-enabled devices can also sync up with this soundbar very easily, making it a simple process to listen to podcasts, play music, and broadcast directly from your smartphone.

 

Connect a media streaming device

If you don’t already have a media streaming box in your home theater accessory collection, it’s almost a necessity in this day and age to have one. A media streaming box can be used to connect with social media, Netflix, streaming platforms, and to stream your very own media. Streaming your favourite TV shows and media has never been easier with your home entertainment devices, as long as it’s paired with a quality Apple TV-esque media streaming box.

 

HDTV antenna

In this day and ago, more Canadians are getting rid of their cable subscriptions. Although there’s thousands of hours of media available on platforms like YouTube and Netflix, it doesn’t hurt to have some local programming thrown in there. Through using an HDTV antenna, indoor or outdoor, there’s the opportunity to pick up up to 20 channels of predominantly local and regional programming.

Cables you need to install your home theatre available at PrimeCables.ca

Home theatre installation can involve climbing a pretty steep learning curve, so we here at PrimeCables.ca would like to take the time to clarify the various types of A/V cables you might be considering when preparing to DIY and create your very first home theatre setup.

If you’re a simple person looking for the simple answer: HDMI.

We recommend HDMI cables because they transmit audio and video signals flawlessly and in high definition across a multitude of devices. Whether you’re intending on inserting a sound system, game console, cable box, multimedia center, or desktop into your home theatre, HDMI delivers uncompressed audio via 8 channels, providing full 7.1 surround sound compatibility that comes standard with Blu-Ray players, as well as high def video, including 3D and 4K formats.

We have a huge selection of HDMI cables and adapters in our catalogue, although our number one top selling HDMI cable is the PrimeCables® Licensed HDMI® 2.0 Cable (with Zinc-Alloy), regularly priced $7.99, on sale now until the end of October for just $5.99. Featuring gold-plated connectors, 4K and 3D video support, up to 32 audio channel output, and built-in HDMI Ethernet capability, this is one of the best HDMI cables available on the Canadian market right now.

You might have special hardware or A/V demands in your home theatre, and that’s fine. Here’s everything you need to know:

There’s Optical / Toslink, which works via transmission by light pulses, once more prevalent than it is today. Although less commonplace now because of the predominance of cheaper HDMI cables, Toslink provides minimal signal degradation. But, even though it delivers optimal sound quality, it is limited to providing only up to 5.1 surround sound. Our recommended Toslink cable is the PrimeCables® 5.0mm Optical Toslink Cable, available in a variety of lengths starting at just $1.99 each.

There’s also Digital Coax, which delivers 5.1 surround sound audio, and remains in common use. Usually, its purpose is to connect your subwoofer to your audio receiver, providing superior sound quality much like optical / Toslink.

Last, but not least, is RCA cables, probably something your mom or dad used back in the day. These analog cords are reliable and capable of delivering surround sound with multiple connections. Because of their design purpose to provide analog sound, they can degrade sound quality in digital recording playback. They work great for heirloom hardware and old school setups, though!

Our recommended RCA cable is the Monoprice® Premium RCA M/M 22AWG Cable, sold two per package in a variety of lengths starting as low as $4.29 for the pair. This high-quality RG59U, 75ohm cable gives you flawless audio playback for all your old vinyl records.
