1) Choose an appropriate mounting location underneath a cabinet or shelf. Close proximity to an electrical outlet
and a TV antenna or cable connection will facilitate a neat, easy installation. Do not mount the VE-500A above
a range or oven. Be sure that the location chosen will provide adequate access to the electrical connectors on
the rear of the unit before continuing.
2) If the location chosen has bottom edge molding it may be necessary to use the mounting spacers provided to
effectively lower the VE-500A’s rotating screen below the molding. Measure the distance between the bottom
of the molding and the bottom of the cabinet. A maximum measurement of 1.5” can be accommodated without
using spacers. For larger moldings choose a combination of spacers which will reduce the mounting depth to
1.5” or less.
3) Measure the thickness of the bottom of the cabinet or shelf and the spacers chosen. Select the shortest
screw length which will pass through the countersunk washer, kitchen cabinet and spacers with between 1/4”
and 1 1/2” inches to spare
4) Cut out the template supplied and tape it in place onto the cabinet surface to be drilled. Center punch the four
holes indicated on the template and remove the template.
5) Carefully drill four 1/4” holes at the locations marked above. Place the screws chosen through the countersunk
washers and then through the holes from the top down.
6) Screw the appropriate spacers on to the screws first, then position the VE-500A and screw it in place using its
threaded holes.
7) Plug the AC Power adapter into a nearby electrical outlet and into the receptacle marked DC 12v input at the
rear of the VE-500A
8) Connect your TV antenna or cable system to the antenna connector on the rear of the VE-500A.
9) Route the wires safely away from heat and moisture sources and secure them in place using the self adhesive
wire mounting clip provided.

When installing the VE-500A vertically, choose a mounting location at or close to eye level. Close proximity
to an electrical outlet and a TV antenna or cable connection will facilitate a neat, easy installation.
Cut out the template provided and temporarily tape it to the wall at the desired location. Mark the center of the
vertical mounting slot and remove the template.
Determine if a wall stud is present at the chosen location by drilling a 1/16” hole at the marked location. After
penetrating the depth of the wall surface, observe whether or not a structural stud is present. Caution, if near
electrical outlet, there is likely to be electrical wiring present.
If a structural stud is present, a suitable length drywall screw can be screwed directly into it. Leave approximately
1/4” of the screw protruding from the wall.
If there is no structural stud present, a drywall anchor from your local hardware store will be necessary.
Remember to leave 1/4” of its screw head protruding from the wall.
Hang the VE-500A onto the screw head using the vertical mounting slot at the rear of the unit.
Plug the AC Power adapter into a nearby electrical outlet and into the receptacle marked DC 12v input on the
bottom of the VE-500A.
Connect your TV antenna or cable system to the antenna connector on the bottom of the VE-500A.
Route the wires safely away from heat and moisture sources and secure them in place using the self adhesive
wire mounting clip provided.

CHANNEL TUNING SET UP
In addition to normal broadcast reception of VHF and UHF channels, if you are a Cable TV subscriber,
your new VE500A is capable of receiving many unscrambled Cable channels without the use of a
converter box. When set to Broadcast TV it receives CH2-CH69. When set to one of the CATV modes
(STD, HRC, or IRC) it receives CH1-CH125. Follow this simple procedure to make channel tuning
more convenient.
1. Use the TV/CATV button on the Remote Control to select the broadcast system appropriate for your
home. The system selected will be displayed on the screen. If you have an external roof mounted or
rabbit ear antenna, select “TV,” if you have CABLE TV, select either “STD”, “HRC” or IRC (“STD” is
used by the majority of Cable Systems. Check with your cable system operator).
2. Press the AUTO MEMORY button on the Remote Control Unit or the TV. You will see the TV cycle
through all channels. The built-in Microprocessor will automatically store each channel that is actively
broadcasting in your area.
3. To view only strong clear channels, press the SKIP/SEARCH button on the Remote Control Unit until
“SKIP MODE ON” is displayed on the bottom of the screen. The TV will now tune only to strong, active
channels, when the UP or DOWN buttons are used on the monitor or remote control.
To view a weak or marginal channel, press the SKIP/SEARCH button on the Remote Control Unit until
“SKIP MODE OFF” is displayed on the bottom of the screen. Tune to the desired channel using the
CHANNEL UP/DOWN button or go directly to the channel by direct access using the 0-9 buttons on the
Remote Control.
4. To ERASE a channel, press the ERASE/WRITE button on the Remote Control Unit until “MANUAL
MEMORY XX ERASE” is displayed on screen. To STORE a channel, press the button until “MANUAL
MEMORY XX ADD” is displayed on screen.
