Connecting TVBook Pro
1.
Connect TVBook Pro to the ExpressCard/34 of your MacBook Pro

Connect the mini-antenna to the antenna adapter.
Note: The mini-antenna will only work in areas where DVB-T reception is good. You should not have any
difficulties receiving the full range of TV stations if you live in Germany or northern European countries. In the UK
and France, it is strongly recommended to place the antenna near a window, as ‘indoor mobility’ is not yet
implemented.
If you do not receive any channels when using the mini-antenna, connect TVBook Pro to a roof-mounted antenna.
