Question 10: How do I connect my home theater receiver to an existing Rocketboost network?

[ Edited ]

Every new Rocketboost device you add to your Rocketboost network must be “joined” to your Rocketboost hub device. Use these instructions if you want to join your home theater receiver to an existing Rocketboost network. If this is your first Rocketboost device or you want to make your home theater receiver the hub, see Question 9.

 

  1. Install a Rocketboost Wireless Ready Card into your home theater receiver. See Question 7 for more information.
  2. Press the Power button on your home theater receiver to turn it on.
  3. Press SETUP on your home theater receiver or remote control. The Setup Menu opens.
  4. Press ▼ or ▲ to select 11. Rocketboost, then press ENTER. The Rocketboost menu opens.
  5. Press ▼ or ▲ to select Hub (Manager) Enable, then press ENTER. The Hub Enable menu opens.
  6. Press ◄ or ► to select Disable. Make sure that your other Rocketfish devices are set to Enable.
  7. Press RETURN to go to the previous menu.
  8. If possible, bring your existing hub device into the same room as the home theater receiver. You can move it to a different location after joining.
  9. Press the Power button on the hub device to turn it on.
  10. Press and hold the Power button on your hub device for more than three seconds to put it into joining mode. The power indicator starts blinking rapidly and the unit stays in joining mode for 30 seconds.
  11. On your home theater receiver, press ▼ or ▲ to select Connect to Wireless Network, then press ENTER. The display on your home theater receiver shows “Connecting.” When connected to your Rocketboost Hub, the display shows “Connected” and the power indicator LED on your other Rocketboost device lights solid.
    Note: If the joining fails after 30 seconds, the display on your home theater receiver shows “Timeout.” Repeat these steps or see Question 12 for more information.
  12. Press RETURN to go back to the main menu.

Question 12: What should I do if I cannot join my home theater receiver to a Rocketboost network?

[ Edited ]
  • Make sure that you have installed the Rocketboost Wireless Ready Card (not included). See Question 7 for installation instructions.
  • Make sure that the hub device is connected to a working power outlet.
  • Turn off the home theater receiver and Rocketboost device, then turn them back on.
  • Make sure that all connections are correct and secure.
  • A Rocketboost network can only contain one hub device. Make sure that only one wireless sender/receiver in your network is set to ENABLE.
  • The maximum distance the home theater receiver can be from another Rocketfish device is 150 feet (45.7 meters). However, this distance may be reduced if the wireless signal has to pass through walls or other obstructions. Move the home theater receiver and Rocketboost device closer together.
  • The maximum number of Rocketboost devices in a Rocketboost network is nine. If you already have nine devices connected and attempt to join an additional device, the new device will not join.
