Connecting MyWirelessTV
Connecting MyWirelessTV consists of two parts: connecting the
Transmitter to a source of high-definition video, and connecting the
receiver to a high-definition television monitor. This chapter will take you
through both procedures, as well as setting up the IR Blaster and IR
Receiver to allow you to use the remote control of the source device in the
location you are watching (or playing) your content.
Connecting the MyWirelessTV Transmitter
1. The Transmitter must be installed near the video’s source device (set
top box, Blu-ray player, gaming console, etc.)
2. Get one of the power supplies from the MyWirelessTV kit and plug the
small end of the Power adapter into the 5VDC (Power) port of the back
of the Transmitter
3. Plug the other end into an electrical wall socket. The PowerLED will
glow solid green.
4. Unplug the HDMI cable that connects the source device to the
television monitor from the source device. It should now only be
connected to the monitor.
5. Plug the free end of the HDMI cable you unplugged in step 4 into the
HDMI Out to TV port on the back of the Transmitter. This cable
should now connect the television monitor to the Transmitter.
6. Get an HDMI cable from the MyWirelessTV kit and plug one end into
the HDMI Input port on the back of the Transmitter.
MyWirelessTV User Manual
7. Plug the other end of this HDMI cable to an HDMI port on the source
device. This cable should now connect the Transmitter to the source
device.
8. Turn on the HDTV and make sure you can see video from your source
device.
Connecting the MyWirelessTV Receiver
The Receiver must be installed near the HDTV monitor where you intend
to watch the content being streamed from the source device.
1. Get the second power supply from the MyWirelessTV kit and plug the
smaller end into the 5VDC (Power) port on the back of the Receiver.
2. Plug the other end into an electrical wall socket. The Power LED will
glow solid green.
3. Get the second HDMI cable from the MyWirelessTV kit and plug one
end into an HDMI port on the HDTV monitor.
4. Plug the other end of this HDMI cable into the HDMI Out to TV port
on the back of the Receiver. This cable should now connect the
Receiver to the HDTV monitor.
5. Turn on the HDTV monitor. You should be able to see content being
streamed from the source device.

MyWirelessTV User Manual
Setting Up IR Control
MyWirelessTV comes with an IR Blaster and IR Receiver, which work
together to allow you to control the source device from the location you
are watching, whether it’s in the next room or on the other side of the
house. For example, if your Blu-ray player is in the living room, and
you’ve set up MyWirelessTV to watch on an HDTV in the bedroom, the
IR Blaster/Receiver allows you to control the Blu-ray player from your
bedroom.
Note: If you are using MyWirelessTV in the same location (i.e., the source
device and the HDTV monitor are in the same room), the IR Blaster/
Receiver is not needed.
Connecting the IR Extender Cable
The IR Extender cable receives signals from the source device remote
control and sends them back to the source device.
1. Get the IR Extender cable (it has a green connector) from the
MyWirelessTV kit.
2. Plug the IR Extender’s green connector into the green IR port on the
back of the Receiver.
3. Remove the protective covering of the double-stick tape and attach the
flat end of the IR Receiver cable to the front corner of the HDTV
monitor’s bezel or frame
Connecting the IR Blaster Cable
The IR Blaster cable receives the source device remote control signal from
the Receiver and delivers it to the source device.
1. Get the IR Blaster cable (it has a black connector) from the
MyWirelessTV kit.
2. Plug the black connector of the IR Blaster cable into the IR Transmit
port on the back of the Transmitter.
13
MyWirelessTV User Manual
3. Place the flat end of the IR Blaster cable in front of the remote sensor of
the source device.
You should now be able to use the remote control of the source device
from the location of the HDTV monitor to which you are streaming
content.

Backchannel feature (see next page) to operate your keyboard and mouse
from the MyWirelessTV’s Receiver.
15
MyWirelessTV User Manual
Using USB Backchannel
1. After connecting the computer to the Transmitter, and an HD monitor
to the Receiver, get the mini USB connector from the kit and plug it
into the mini USB port on the Transmitter.
2. Get a USB cable (not included in kit) and connect it to the mini USB
connector plugged into the Transmitter, and a USB port on the
computer.
3. Plug your keyboard/mouse into the USB port on the Receiver. You
should now be able to control your computer remotely.

Troubleshooting
This chapter will describe some problems you may encounter using
MyWirelessTV, and the possible solutions to those problems. Also
included are frequently asked questions, and the answers the questions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t I see anything on the TV next to the Transmitter?
Check the cable connection from the external source (i.e., cable/
satellite set top box, Blu-ray player) to the Transmitter and from the
Transmitter out to the HDTV.
Why can’t I see anything on the TV, even though all the
cables are connected properly?
Make sure the external source device is powered on and the correct
source input is selected on your HDTV.
Why can’t I see anything on the TV next to the Receiver?
Check the cable connection from the MyWirelessTV Receiver out to
the HDTV. Also, make sure the correct source input is selected.
Why can’t I control my external source device from my
second HDTV?
Make sure the IR Blaster sensor is pointed directly to the external
source device’s IR sensor window. Also, check that the Receiver or the
IR Extender cable is in line-of-sight of the remote control.
MyWirelessTV User Manual
Why can’t I change my channel or volume with the
MyWirelessTV remote control?
The remote control is intended only for switching inputs, pairing
configurations, and software updates. Use the HDTV remote control
for changing channels or adjusting volume.
Why don’t I see any video when I connect my HDMI PC or
laptop computer to MyWirelessTV?
Make sure the HDMI output display is selected from your PC or laptop.
If needed, refer to your PC or laptop’s user manual for more
information.
Why is the video quality so poor?
To improve video quality, try adjusting the orientation of the
Transmitter and/or Receiver. Use the Wireless Power Indicator (in the
MyWirelessTV’s GUI, go to Advanced Settings, then System
Information) to see what orientation works best for your situation.
Why aren’t my remote keyboard and mouse working when I
connect MyWirelessTV to my computer?
Check your cable connections. Make sure you have a USB 2.0 A to
Mini-B cable connected between your Transmitter and your computer’s
USB port.
Why am I not seeing video from my Motorola cable set top
box after seeing an HDCP warning message on my HDTV?
As of October 1, 2011, some Motorola cable set top boxes are known to
have video authentication issues with certain video devices. Check with
your cable service provider to see if a software update is available for
your cable set top box.
30
MyWirelessTV User Manual
I have my MyWirelessTV Receiver and Transmitter in the
same room. Why does my source device accept the
command from the remote control twice?
To prevent the source device from getting the IR command twice,
connect your IR Extender cable to the Receiver and hide the IR sensor
from direct line-of-sight.
What is the remote control used for?
The MyWirelessTV remote control is used to configure different setups,
such as connecting two Transmitters to a single Receiver. Also, you can
access the MyWirelessTV’s graphical user interface to change system
settings. See the “Remote Control” section of the “Using the
MyWirelessTV Graphical User Interface” chapter for more information.
