It's simple to install. There is nothing to adjust. Just plug it in between your cable box, VCR or dish receiver and your TV and turn it on. It's that simple. Unfortunately, if you have an old fashioned standard TV antenna (through the air type such as an old fashioned roof-top or inside rabbit ears), the Terk VR1 won't work for you unless you use your VCR to receive over the air broadcasts. You need a "receiver" such as a cable box, dish receiver, VCR, etc. The receiver (cable box, dish box, VCR, etc.) plugs directly into the Terk, then the Terk is plugged into your TV using the included RCA cables.
I was amazed how much of a difference the Terk made. Surfing from channel to channel doesn't require adjusting the volume. The volume of the commercials is the same as the show, so no need to hit the "mute" button during every commercial break. When movies or shows have low volume scenes, such as whispering, the volume is automatically adjusted so you can actually hear what is being said.
I give the Terk VR1 5 stars.
Update as of May, 2012: I am still using this product and it still works like a charm. In fact, I've even started seeing some newer TV's being sold with this technology already installed in the TV itself. I wasn't dissapointed with this product then and it's still going strong 7 years later!
box and the TV via the RCA-type audio out plugs on the digital box and connected to the VR-1 audio-in. Another set of audio plugs go from the
VR-1's audio-out to the TV's audio-in. You can bypass the signal modulation
with a switch on the front of the VR-1 if so desired, but for most programming you will want it to be ON! It adjusts the volume for the loudest commercials so that everything is very level and you then adjust the volume on your cable remote to the level you like.
Be aware that it does not work with a stand-alone TV, you have to have an
A/V input such as a dish receiver, digital cable box or home theater receiver.
If you find loud commercials as aggravating as I do, you'll love this little device!
A device like the TERK VR-1 Volume Regulator isn't for everyone, the buyer needs to have some familiarity with interconnecting home theater audio components to achieve the desired results.Read more ›
The ONLY complaint... If this limiter is not on a UPS and the power goes out or even flickers (possibly even a short brown-out), the "Automatic Volume Controller" will go into an unactivated state (e.g., no longer provides any control over your audio levels). Many people that have bought this product don't realize what's happened and, as many developments' homeowners may find outages/flickers occur on a regular basis (too often), blame the product for not working.Read more ›
