A home theater system’s major component is the LED TV, next to it is the DVD player or the media player. Without those especially the TV, there’s basically no point in calling it an entertainment system. While we can easily do without the tiny details of it like the accessories, it’s going to make your viewing experience a tad less entertaining. That is why if you want to just watch Netflix and chill or to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show, having the essential TV and DVD accessories are a must.
So, what are these TV and DVD accessories?
TV, DVD Remotes
Apparently, remotes are important because they save you the effort of having to walk all the way to your TV to change the channels using the hard buttons. Another important thing to remember about remotes is that the TV and the Video/DVD players are separate.
There are, however, universal remotes that work for all types of TVs, whether it’s a Panasonic TV, Samsung TV, or LG TV in Hong Kong, it won’t matter. Different TVs come with different programming, so for universal remotes to work, you need extra effort in pairing them up with your TV. Normally, they come with instructions but for some that don’t, you can easily find the instructions online.
As for the Video or DVD player, some universal remotes also work with them, but most of the time they tend to limit the functions. So, the best choice when it comes to finding the best DVD and Video player remote is to buy one from the equipment’s manufacturer.
For people using TV boxes, DVR, DVD players, or multimedia players, the cables are very important to watch the video being played by these sources. Otherwise, you’ll simply be looking at a static channel on your LED TV or just a local channel. Today, with the popularity of High Definition picture, the typical red, yellow, and white cords are a thing of the past. HDMI Cords are now the standard cables used to hook up a TV with a certain media player. Though, the standard yellow, red, and white cords are still accommodated by many LED TVs, and DVD players today. They are now least favored because they can’t support high definition resolution which has become a standard for most video formats today.
Gone are the days when TVs could literally stand on their own because they have a huge body that could easily support their weight. Today, light, slim, and compact TVs are the thing – LED TV. For these TV to hold themselves to the ground, literally is to hook them up with a wall mount or a TV rack. There are various types of TV mount that you could choose from: there are those that could be screwed in place on your walls, TV carts with floor stand, full motion brackets, and simply TV stands. These are designed for LED TVs, so there’s basically no limitation as to which one you could go for. It will all boil down as to how you want to organize your TV set.
