AC power before you disconnect it from the
modulator.
Your modulator provides four sets of input
jacks that can be used to connect up to four
home entertainment components, and each
set of the input jacks includes one S-VIDEO
jack. It can auto-select the video signals if
both S-video and composite signals are
received. S-video signals have the highest
priority.
When your connections are complete, insert
the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the
DC 9V jack on the back of the modulator, then
plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.
The LED on the front of the modulator lights.
Connect your antenna or the cable TV’s
output to ANT IN on the back of the modulator
with a 75Ω (75-ohm)
F-connector coaxial cable.
1. Turn on the TV and set it to either
Channel 3 or 4, whichever is not used
for regular broadcasts in your area.

2. Set the modulator’s CHANNEL 3/4 to the
same channel you set the TV (3 or 4).
3. Press the corresponding component
selector 1/2/3/4 on the front of the
modulator.

Never press two or more component selectors
at the same time.
Plug the connector on one end of a
75Ω F-connector cable to TO TV on the back
of the modulator, and plug the connector on
the cable’s other end to your TV input
terminal.
Plug the connectors on one end of a stereo
A/V cable into one set of the V (video /
yellow), R (audio right / red), and L (audio left
/ white) INPUT jacks on the modulator. Plug
the connectors on the cable’s other end into
the video and audio output jacks on the
component. Or, you can connect an S-video
cable from the S-VIDEO output of a device to
an S-VIDEO INPUT jack on the modulator in
lieu of A/V cables.

You can power the modulator using the
supplied 9V, 100 mA AC/DC adapter.
."%#76+10".
• You must use a Class 2 power source that
supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 100
mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and
its plug must fit the modulator's DC 9V jack.
The supplied adapter meets these
specifications. Using an adapter that does
not meet these specifications could damage
the modulator or the adapter.
• If you do not plan to use the modulator for a
week or more, unplug the adapter from the
AC outlet.
Always connect the AC adapter to the
modulator before you connect it to AC power.
When you finish, disconnect the adapter from

Turn on the connected component and set
75Ω/1kΩ (the impedance switch) on the back
of the modulator to the position that gives the

• If the component connected to
INPUT 1/GAME PORT, has a 1kΩ output
impedance slide
75Ω/1kΩ to 1kΩ.
• The impedance switch only affects
INPUT 1/GAME PORT.
To watch the TV’s signal, set the component
selector to an unused component, or set the
selector to a component that is not powered
on.
To de-select a component without selecting
another component, lightly press a different
component’s selector button. Do not fully
compress the button. The depressed button
releases.
determined by turning the equipment off and on,
the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a
circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult your local RadioShack store or an
experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• If you cannot eliminate the interference, the
FCC requires that you stop using your
modulator.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved
by RadioShack may cause interference and void
the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the condition that
this device does not cause harmful interference.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.

Keep the modulator dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry
immediately. Use and store the modulator only in
normal temperature environments. Handle the
modulator carefully; do not drop it. Keep the
modulator away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with
a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
If your modulator is not performing as it should,
take it to your local RadioShack store for
assistance. Modifying or tampering with the
modulator’s internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and
void your FCC authorization to operate it.

This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this
