SETUP AND INSTALLATION

1. Getting @TV connected to your home network

The @TV setup software for PC and Mac is the best way to configure @TV. Visit http://www.belkin.com/mytveverywhere to download the software.

a.Wired

i.Direct connection via an Ethernet cable will provide the best possible performance for your @TV product. Simply connect the cable to one of the open ports on your broadband-connectednetwork router and then to the Ethernet port on your @TV.

ii.If you have trouble getting your @TV to connect with your router, first make sure that the network cables are attached properly to both devices. Then try restarting your router or cable/DSL modem: unplug the devices for 30 seconds, plug them back in, and they should find one another.

b.Wireless

i.In order to get your @TV onto your home wireless network, follow the directions in the setup software.

ii.If your router is WPS (Wi-FiProtected Setup) enabled, you can also follow your router’s instructions for how to connect devices to it using that feature; this will not always work

for all router/@TV combinations, but should work for most. The red @TV WPS button is located on the right side of the product as you face it, just next to the USB service port.

SETUP AND INSTALLATION

c.Advanced network connections

@TV will use UPnP to configure our network connection. In some cases you will need to use your router’s setup pages to change a few settings.

i.Apple using 3G/4G

1.In order to access @TV on a 3G or 4G network using an Apple product like an iPhone, you may need to modify your Port Forwarding settings. These settings allow your @TV app and your @TV box to connect through your router by opening specific ports (you can think of these as doorways linking your @TV and your @TV apps). The following section explains how to make those changes.

ii.Manual Port Forwarding settings

1.Open your router settings page and find the “Port Forwarding” or “Virtual Servers” section (Belkin routers call this “Virtual Servers”; most brands use the term “Port Forwarding”).

2.Make the following setting changes on this page:

a.First open port 56123 for both UDP and TCP traffic

b.Then, open port 49177 to TCP traffic

3.Save the settings. Once these settings are saved in your router, you should have access to @TV on iOS devices over a 3G or 4G connection.

iii.More complex networks (NAT/firewall issues)

1.In some cases your @TV may be behind more than one router: apartment complexes with shared Internet services or homes with Wi-Fiextenders orWi-Fibridges would

fall into this category. In these situations, you will need to also configure the second router or firewall device with the same Port Forwarding settings as above.

CONNECTING TO YOUR CABLE OR SATELLITE SET-TOPBOX

2.Connecting to your cable or satellite set-topbox

a.Connections

i.Video inputs from your set-topbox to your @TV: You can connect your @TV to your cable or satellite box via composite or component cables; we recommend component because they provide better overall video quality.

ii.Audio inputs: your @TV has a traditional RCA-stylecomposite input available for both the right and left channels of audio from your cable or satellite box.

iii.IR blasters (infrared) to control your set-topbox: your @TV comes with a set of IR blasters. These plug into the back of the @TV and allow it to send IR commands to your cable or satellite box, just like your home remote control. Identifying where your cable or satellite box receives the commands from its remote control will help you place them in the optimal location.

b.Video pass-through

i.This feature is useful only if you currently have your cable box connected to your home TV with the same connections that you would like to use for your @TV; it allows you to directly pass the input video from your cable or satellite box through the @TV to your home TV. If you have your TV connected to your cable or satellite box via HDMI and have

free component or composite connections, you have no need to use the video out connections.

c.Other issues

i.HDMI syncing

In rare cases, certain cable or satellite boxes automatically

disable analog outputs like the ones @TV uses whenever an HDMI enabled device (like an HDTV) is connected to them; this is because that particular cable or satellite box manufacturer has chosen to enable advanced content protection protocols that are triggered by your TV/STB combination. The best workaround is to utilize @TV’s HD pass-throughfeature and take the 1080i component cable signal from your cable or satellite box and pass it through to your television. This will enable you to enjoy @TV and also watch your cable or satellite on your HDTV in 1080i quality.

ii.Audio troubleshooting

If you are experiencing distortion or another audio issue, please check to make sure that the cables connecting your cable or satellite box to your @TV are attached correctly. Turning on your TV to listen to the audio and switching to other channels will help you pinpoint whether it is an issue with the broadcast or something else.

d.Advanced settings tab i. Video

1.Input

a. Component vs. Composite

i.Allows you to select which input on your @TV you would like to use. We recommend using component as it provides the highest video quality.

ii.It is possible to attach two separate devices to @TV and toggle between these inputs

in your App. However, as there is only one audio input, you would need to either listen in mono (dedicate the left channel to one device and the right to the other device) or purchase an audio splitter separately.

b.Hue, saturation, brightness, contrast

i.Various settings to help you optimize the look of your @TV’s video

c.Default

i.Automatically resets the picture optimization settings to their initial settings

2.Device/STB

This section is used to manually configure your remote control settings so that your @TV can control your set-topbox. We recommend that you use the @TV setup software to configure your @TV box, but these tools are available for expert users.

a.Device category

i.Remote codes are grouped into various categories based on standard industry practices. This can be somewhat confusing as a device category

like “VCR” can also refer to a set-topbox that is a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Use “Digital Video Disk” only if you are attaching an @TV to a DVD player or other similar product.

b.Manufacturer

i.Once you’ve identified the device category, your set-topbox manufacturer should be found in this list.

c.Select by model

i.Manually select the model number here.

d.Select by code

i.If you happen to know your product’s IR code set, this setting allows you to manually select it.

e.Command duration

i.This setting allows you to adjust the speed at which the @TV sends IR commands to your set-topbox. For instance, if you are trying to switch to

channel 425 and continue to arrive at channel 42, then channel 5, you should experiment with shortening the duration of remote commands.

f. Show all commands/test

i. This button allows you to test remote commands to make sure that you have the proper settings in place. We recommend that you select the “Show all commands” box and test multiple commands to ensure your setup is perfect.

3. IR-Learning

In this section you can help your @TV “learn” remote commands. This is particularly useful if you have a cable or satellite box not currently supported by @TV. The steps are as follows:

a. Select the appropriate device you are trying to control from the “Command Mapping” list.

b.From the list below, select the command that you are trying to capture and then click “Learn.”

c.Follow the onscreen instructions and repeat until you capture all of the remote commands you will need to control your cable or satellite box.

d.When you are done, click “Save.”

4.IR-ChannelTuning

a.Cable and set-topboxes vary in what they require when you enter a channel. For instance, on some boxes going to channel 42 requires just that you enter 42 while on another you must enter 042 or 0042. This section allows you to manually configure your @TV so that it works well with yourset-topbox.

CONNECTING TO YOUR CABLE OR SATELLITE SET-TOPBOX

5.Wake-up

a.Some boxes require a “wake-up”command; in this section you can automatically set that command when you start streaming from yourset-topbox to your @TV app. For most cable or satellite boxes, these commands are automatically configured when you select that code set. However, in some cases you may want to adjust the settings. If this section is not available for adjustment, it means that the code set for the box you have selected indicates that awake-upcommand is not necessary.

ii. Network

This section allows you to manually configure how your @TV interacts with your home network.

1. Radio

Here you can adjust how your @TV uses its Wi-Ficapabilities. a.Ad-Hocvs. Client Mode vs. Radio Off

i. Select the mode appropriate to your network setup; Radio Off means Wi-Fiis turned off

ii. Most setups will only use Client Mode b. SSID

i. You can either choose your network from the drop-downlist or manually enter your network name.

ii. Frequency

1. Band and Channel: this allows you to select the frequency ban and Wi-Fichannel used to talk to your router or access point.

2. Encryption Type: select the type of security your network uses; if you don’t have a password, select “none.”

3. Security Key/Confirm Key: enter your network’s password here and confirm it again.
