Question 1: How do I set up my RF modulator?

Have you tried using your Quick Start Guide to help you through this process? If more help is needed, follow the steps below.

 

  1. Connect a Composite AV cable (not included) from the AV output jacks of the source component such as a Blu-ray, DVD player, or Gaming system to the corresponding color-coded input jacks on the RF Modulator.
    Note: For mono AV components, use only the yellow and white connectors of the composite AV cable.
  2. Is your TV connected to an RF TV source such as a cable/satellite box or TV antenna? If Yes, go to Step 3. If No, go to Step 4.
  3. Connecting with an RF TV source:
    1. Disconnect the RF TV device from the TV.
    2. Connect the coaxial cable to the ANT IN jack on the RF modulator.
    3. Connect a separate coaxial cable (not included) from the TO TV jack on the RF modulator to the RF input jack on the TV. Continue to Step 5.
  4. Connecting without an RF TV source:
    1. Connect a coaxial cable (not included) from the TO TV jack on the RF Modulator to the RF input jack on the TV.
      Note: If your TV has only 300-ohm VHF screw terminals, use a 75-ohm-to-300-ohm matching transformer (not included) to complete the connection. Continue to Step 5.
  1. Connect the barrel plug on the included power adapter to the DC IN jack on the RF modulator.
  2. Plug the other end of the power adapter into a standard 120V AC outlet.

Question 2: How do I use my RF modulator?

  1. Turn on the TV and set it to either channel 3 or 4, whichever is not used for regular broadcasts in your area.
  2. Set the RF Modulator’s Channel 3/4 switch to the same channel you set the TV (3 or 4).
  3. Turn on the AV component that is connected to the RF modulator and use it following the manufacturer’s instructions.
