  1. Hey there, thanks for the pingback. Good to know there are other people who are interested in setting up Karaoke systems in the home. I like how you’ve clarified some points that I have missed. You seemed to have solved the problem that people have been having regarding the way the vocal track can be turned on and off! Nice!

    • Hi Henry, thanks for leaving a comment! Thanks for your original guide, I’ve been searching a while to set something up at home and yours was by far the best and most comprehensive guide I’ve come across. By the way, how did you find out about my pingback so quickly? Regards, JC.

      • Thanks for your compliment and I am glad you were able to make substantial improvements to what I originally wrote. Regarding the pingback, WordPress sent me an e-mail about it. To be honest, I had to look up what a pingback was when I got the message.

  2. Hi,

    Can you please help me resolve this issue? Sounds like maybe you were having the same problem but I can’t seem to resolve it and I’ve tried these versions of JetKTV: JetKTV2010 and JetKTV2010_1023.

    I can’t figure out how to display the GUI on my desktop monitor (VGA) and the full screen video on my TV (HDMI). I am using the extended screen option and have tried with the TV as the main monitor and the desktop monitor as the main monitor as well. Every time I play a video, it displays the menu GUI on the TV and the full screen video on the desktop monitor. I am using the most current version of Windows 8. Thanks!

    • Hi PY,
      I am also using windows 8. I did not run into any weird issues with screen display. I had problems with later versions of jetKTV but not with 2010. There are 2 things I would recommend trying:
      1. Try running the application on single screen. What is the behavior? Does the KTV full screen after song selection?
      2. Make sure you extend your display before you start the jetKTV application. Does that make a difference?

      If both the above still do not work, there is actually a config file you can tweak. I can post you my config file properties and see if that makes a difference.

      Regards,
      JC

  3. Hi! Your post is so informative! Is your laptop Microsoft? Will it work for Apple? And any recommendation for microphone brand?
