Connecting to RF Modulator

If your TV has AUDIO/VIDEO input jacks, see the section “Connections” on page 6. If not, it is still possible to connect this unit to your TV by using a STEREO AUDIO/VIDEO RF Modulator (commercially available.) In this case, follow the instructions below.

1)Connect the AUDIO/VIDEO output jacks of this unit to the AUDIO/VIDEO input jacks of your RF Modulator by audio and video cables.

2)The antenna input jack of your TV may have been already occupied. If so, disconnect the RF cable from your TV, then connect the RF cable to your RF Modulator (usually marked “ANT IN”.)

3)Connect your RF modulator to your TV by another RF cable.

4)Set your RF modulator’s channel 3/4 switch to either 3 or 4, whichever the TV channel is least used in your area. If your RF modulator has a Modulator/Antenna switch, set it according to your RF modulator’s manual.

5)Turn on your TV and choose the same channel as you set the RF modulator’s channel 3/4 switch to.

For more details, follow the instructions supplied with the RF Modulator.
