Adjust the antennas on the transmitter and receiver to improve the picture on your TV. Point the sides marked with 4 squares toward each other.


Alternate Receiver Setup: Coaxial Connection

If your TV does not have RCA audio/video inputs, or if they are already in use, you can connect the Video Receiver to your TV using the coaxial connection. Instead of following Step 3 (above), do the following:

  • Find the included coaxial cable.
  • Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the coaxial input on your TV. It might be labeled "coax," "cable," or even "antenna."
  • Connect the other end of the coaxial cable to the output on the Video Receiver.
  • Plug the Video Receiver into power, and make sure the power switch on its left side is turned on.
  • Use the TV CHANNEL switch on the bottom of the Video Receiver to select the channel on which to display video from the Video Receiver--Channel 3 or Channel 4.


To view the Video Sender transmission, change the channel on your TV to the one selected above.
