Precautions—Continued
The available scientific evidence does not show that
any health problems are associated with using low
power wireless devices. There is no proof, however,
that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices emit low
levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels
of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse
health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any biological effects. Some
studies have suggested that some biological effects
might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. UTX-1 has been
tested and found to comply with FCC radiation
exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF)
Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65.
For Canadian Models
(This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules
and RSS-Gen of IC Rules.) Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) this device may

Setting Up the UWL-1
Connecting the Transmitter (UTX-1)
1
Start up your PC.
Wait until the startup process is complete and Windows® is ready to use.
Note: Before you plug or unplug the Transmitter, turn down the volume on your audio system or powered speakers, or unplug the Receiver’s AC adapter from the wall outlet.
2
Remove the Transmitter’s cap, and then plug the
Transmitter into a USB port on your PC.
The Transmitter’s Transmit indicator lights up.
Be careful to insert the Transmitter the right way.
When you plug the Transmitter into your PC for the very
first time, Windows® will automatically detect it as new
hardware and install the necessary drivers. Please wait
until this process is complete. If Windows® does not detect
it automatically, see below.
Transmit indicator
(The position and number of USB
ports depends on your PC. Check
your PC’s manual for details.)
Notes:
• Since the Transmitter requires a lot of power, it should be connected directly to a USB port
on your PC. However, if your PC is located on the floor, or it’s a large tower or desktop PC
and its USB ports are located at the rear, wireless transmission may be obstructed and audio
playback may be interrupted. In this case, try moving the Transmitter to another location. If
you can’t relocate your PC, using a commercially available USB extension cable and moving the Transmitter to another location may resolve the issue. If you’re using a powered USB
hub, make sure its AC adapter is plugged in when you use the UWL-1.
• Always stop audio playback on your PC before plugging in or unplugging the Transmitter. It’s OK to plug in or unplug the Transmitter while your PC is on.
• If your PC has several USB ports, you can plug the Transmitter into any port. Note that
some PCs may detect the Transmitter as a new device if you plug it into another port. In
this case, simply allow Windows® to perform the installation again.
• Always plug the Transmitter into your PC before starting playback. If you plug it in after
starting playback, the audio will not be transmitted.
• While the Transmitter is plugged into your PC, your PC’s built-in speakers will not output
any sound. This is because USB audio devices have priority. To output sound from your
PC’s built-in speakers, unplug the Transmitter, or change the Default device setting on the
Audio tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties control panel (see page 19).
If Windows® doesn’t install the drivers automatically, unplug the Transmitter, wait about 15 seconds, then plug it in again. If it still doesn’t install them, follow the procedure below:

• On the Receiver, make sure the miniplug or optical digital plug is pushed in all the way (see
page 10).
• If the Receiver’s STANDBY indicator is on, the Receiver is off. Press the [STANDBY/ON]
button to turn on the Receiver (see page 13).
• On the Windows® Volume control, deselect all of the Mute boxes and set all of the Volume
sliders to maximum (see page 12).
• In Windows® Sounds and Audio Devices Properties, make sure the correct audio playback
device is selected (see page 19).
• There may be a problem with the audio system or powered speakers connected to the
Receiver. Make sure the audio system is connected to the Receiver properly. Make sure it’s
turned on, the volume level is turned up, and the Receiver is selected as the input source. If
the audio system appears to be working OK, check the cables (see page 10). See the instruction manual supplied with your audio system or powered speakers for more information.
• If the Receiver’s SYNC indicator is flashing, the Receiver is not synchronized with the Transmitter and wireless transmission is not possible. Try changing the Receiver’s ID (see
page 11).
• Also see “Audio playback is noisy or distorted” below.
The left and right volume levels are not the same
• Check the balance control setting on the connected audio system or powered speakers.
• On the Windows® Volume control, set all of the Balance sliders to midway (see page 12).
• Check the balance control settings in your audio playback program. If the program has independent volume controls for the left and right channels, set them to the same level.
The sound quality is poor or there’s noise
• The sound quality can be affected by strong magnetic fields, such as those from a TV. Try
moving such devices away from the Receiver.
Windows® doesn’t automatically detect the Transmitter
• Make sure the Transmitter is properly plugged into a USB port on your PC (see page 9).
• The problem may be with your USB hub. We recommend that you plug the Transmitter
directly into a USB port on your PC, but if you are using a USB hub, refer to its instruction
manual and make sure it’s working properly.
• Unplug the Transmitter, wait about 15 seconds, and then plug it in again. If Windows® seems
unstable, restart your PC.
Your PC’s built-in speakers output no sound
• While the Transmitter is plugged into your PC, your PC’s built-in speakers will not output
any sound. This is because USB audio devices have priority. To output sound from your PC’s
built-in speakers, unplug the Transmitter, or change the Default device setting on the Audio
tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties control panel (see page 19).

Troubleshooting—Continued
Audio playback is noisy or distorted
• Depending on the location of the Transmitter, audio playback may be interrupted. Try moving
the Transmitter to another location. If you can’t relocate your PC, using a commercially available USB extension cable and moving the Transmitter to another location may resolve the
issue.
• Select another wireless channel by pressing the Transmitter’s [CH SELECT] button (see
page 14).
• If a radio or satellite dish is located nearby, it may cause interference.
• If a wireless computer network, microwave oven, or other device that uses the 2.4 GHz frequency band is located nearby, audio playback may be interrupted. In this case, press the
Transmitter’s [CH SELECT] button to select another wireless channel (see page 14).
• If there’s an obstacle between the Transmitter and Receiver, audio playback may be interrupted.
There’s no sound when playing a CD in your PC’s CD/DVD drive
• If your PC’s CD/DVD drive does not support digital audio output, audio from the CD/DVD
drive will not be transmitted by the Transmitter and you will not be able to listen to CD playback through the audio system or powered speakers connected to the Receiver (see page 15).
Can’t hear any music when playing PC games
• If the game uses the CD/DVD drive’s audio output to output audio, see the previous item.
Audio playback is interrupted
• Audio playback may be interrupted if you connect or disconnect another USB device.
• During audio playback, don’t perform any demanding tasks that will create additional work
for your PC’s processor.
• If your PC’s processor does not meet the system requirements stated on page 8, performance
may be affected. Even if the processor does meet the requirements, audio playback may be
interrupted if the processor is burdened with a heavy workload. In this case, quit all other programs.
• Turning off any energy saving settings may also improve performance.
Recording
Can’t record on the component connected to the Receiver’s optical digital jack
• For copyright reasons, it’s not possible to record from the Receiver’s optical digital jack.
Note: The UWL-1 uses microcomputers for signal processing and control functions. In very
rare situations, severe interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may
cause it to lockup. In the unlikely event that this should happen, unplug the Transmitter and
the Receiver’s AC adapter, wait at least 5 seconds, and then plug them back in again.

Troubleshooting—Continued
Confirming Driver Installation
You can confirm that the necessary drivers for the UWL-1 are installed.
■ Windows® XP
Click the Start button, click Control Panel, click Performance and
Maintenance, and then click System. On the Hardware tab, click
the Device Manager button.
Device Manager
■ Windows® 2000
Click the Start button, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and
then click System. On the Hardware tab, click the Device Manager button.
The following device should be
listed under Sound, video and
game controllers:

If these two devices are listed, the
necessary drivers are installed.
USB Composite device
USB Audio Device
Notes:
• The items in the device list depends on your PC’s configuration, so the list that you see on
your PC will be somewhat different to the one shown here.
• If an Unknown device is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers, unplug the
Transmitter, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in again. If Windows® still does not
recognize the Transmitter, uninstall the Unknown device, unplug the Transmitter, wait a
few seconds, and then plug it back in again. If Windows® still does not recognize the
Transmitter, Windows® may have become unstable, so unplug the Transmitter, restart
Windows®, plug it back in again, and then uninstall the Unknown device. If Windows®
still does not recognize the Transmitter, it’s possible that your PC is not working properly
and you may need to contact your PC dealer.

Troubleshooting—Continued
Confirming the Audio Playback Device
You can confirm that the correct audio playback is selected.
■ Windows® XP
Click the Start button, click Control Panel, click Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices,
click Sounds and Audio Devices, and then click the Audio tab.
■ Windows® 2000
Click the Start button, point to Settings, click Control Panel, click Sounds and Multimedia, and then click the Audio tab.
Select: C-Media USB Headphone Set
To use the UWL-1, in the Sound playback section, the Default device should be set to:
• C-Media USB Headphone Set
Normally, this is selected automatically when the Transmitter is plugged into your PC.
Notes:
• Depending on your operating system, Sound playback may be labelled Playback,
Default service may be Preferred device, and C-Media USB Headphone Set may be
USB audio device.
• If you open the Audio tab immediately after plugging in the Transmitter, C-Media USB
Headphone Set may not appear as the Default device. So when you plug in the Transmitter, wait a while before opening the Audio tab. Before you unplug the Transmitter and
plug it in again, close the Audio tab first.
• To temporarily turn off audio transmission by the UWL-1 and output sound from your
PC’s built-in speakers, in the Sound playback section, select the Default device that’s
used when the Transmitter is not plugged into your PC. To use the UWL-1 again, select
C-Media USB Headphone Set.
