    Lightbulb [Quick Tips N Tricks] - Working TV with 4 Channels using Electricity!

    Today we're covering the little known and undocumented feature of hooking up the TV to a switch and getting it to show some video channels. Seems an early Alpha 17 feature got into A16.4 experimental test.

    --> Quick Tips N Tricks - Working TV using Electricity! <--

    1) Big screen tv, wires, wire tool, battery bank & battery
    2) Use a switch!
    3) Place it down, hook it up! Use right side of the TV (might depend on facing North/South/West/East)
    4) Flick the switch until you get a picture.
    5) Flick it more. Random videos!


    Note, sometimes audio has an issue. Make sure your environmental audio is not too low!

    No way!

    I really thought this would be fake, especially when you say to turn up the volume. But I have no reason to doubt it. Looks like they got some old black and white videos, probably public domain, for the content. Smart.

    Doesn't work. Disappearing cable in front of the tv indicates a fake.

    I don't think Vedui is the type to blow up his YouTube channel by using it to troll. Maybe if it was April 1st, but not now.

    The part of the cable which is in front of the tv disappears as soon as video appears (see 3:06). ^^

    Btw. I recreated Vedui's setup exactly (same position of blocks, identical tools and qualities) but it didn't work. So it's somehow suspicious. Please test it.

    I couldn't get the large TV to work either. Tried all directional placements. Maybe what you're seeing in the video is Vedui deselecting the wire tool, so the 'current' lines disappear? Or the video overshadows the wire. Bottom line for me is NOT seeing any popup (w) when I mouseover the TV, so I couldn't connect any wires to it.

    I'm not too experienced in the wiring aspect of the game yet so there's that
    Also I'm running the version before b8.. 16.4 exp b2 (performance is much better for me). Pille, what's your version?

    Vedui, were you using creative TVs? Mine were all crafted, no cm, no mods. Looking forward to that followup video this weekend.

    My guess is that he's doin his vids in a creative world. There're some things that work in creative mode, but not in a survival game. My TV doesn't work either. Have to check it out as soon as i get home tonight.

    Let us know how it goes =) I was wondering the same about cm. I'm sure we'll see more in the followup video.

    Great thanks, just trying to rule out the version thing. I'm one experimental behind you.
