Getting to Know the ScreenBeam Components
The ScreenBeam Kit contains two components: Display Adapter and Transmitter.
The Display Adapter is the main component of the ScreenBeam kit. It receives
video transmissions from devices running Windows 7/8, Miracast, or Intel’s WiDi.
The Transmitter is only used to connect non-Miracast or non-WiDi devices.
ScreenBeam Display Adapter
The Display Adapter features 1 LED and two ports:
Power Light
The Power light glows green when the Display Adapter is powered up.

to the Display Adapter.
Power Port
The Power port is used to connect the Display Adapter’s Power cord.
USB Port
The USB port is used for software upgrades via a USB flash drive.
ScreenBeam Transmitter
The Transmitter has a single USB connection, used to connect it to a USB
port on a Windows7/8 computer that is not running Miracast or WiDi. To use
ScreenBeam in this manner, you must install the ScreenBeam software on the
computer (see chapter 2 of this manual).

Frequently Asked
Questions
5
This chapter lists a series frequently asked questions concerning the operation of
the ScreenBeam components.
I’ve inserted the software CD into the CD-ROM drive, but it doesn’t
install. What should I do?
In Windows Explorer, browse to the CD-ROM drive (e.g., D:\), then locate and
double-click on the file named “Setup.exe”.
My laptop computer does not have a CD-ROM drive. How can I install
the ScreenBeam display software?
If your computer doesn’t have a CD-ROM drive, go to the following link:
http://www.actiontec.com/products/sbupdate.php
Then, download the software. When doing this, make sure you have the
ScreenBeam Receiver information ready.
Do I need to use ScreenBeam display software if I already have a device
with Miracast™ or Intel® WiDi 3.5 or higher?
No. For WiDi-capable systems, make sure your system driver and WiDi software
are up-to-date (3.5 or higher). For Miracast™ devices, refer to the user guide of the
device’s manufacturer.
21
ScreenBeam Wireless Display Adapter Kit
The ScreenBeam display software can’t launch–it says it can’t find a USB
Transmitter. How can I solve this?
First, if the display software doesn’t launch, wait about a minute before trying
anything else. Then, unplug and plug the USB Transmitter device back in, and
try launching the display software again. If that doesn’t work, open the Windows
Device Manager and make sure the ScreenBeam Transmitter is not disabled (locate
it under “Network”).
Why can’t I see anything on my TV screen?
If you’re not getting a picture on your TV, make sure the ScreenBeam display
adapter is connected, powered on, and the correct TV input (HDMI 1, HDMI 2,
etc.) has been selected.
I cannot detect the ScreenBeam Display Adapter from my laptop computer using the ScreenBeam display software. What’s wrong?
First, make sure the ScreenBeam Transmitter is connected to the USB port. Then,
select “Add a receiver” and try again.
My laptop computer displays the following message: “Color scheme has
been changed.” Is this a problem?
No. Your laptop color scheme will return to normal once you disconnect from the
ScreenBeam Transmitter.
Why is my laptop computer audio muted once I connect to ScreenBeam
Display Adapter?
It is muted because the audio is now being broadcast to the TV.
Why is the text blurry on the TV when I use the ScreenBeam display
software?
Your TV may not be able to support the resolution sent from your PC. Try changing your laptop’s display resolution to either 1280x720 or 1920x1080.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why am I experiencing stuttering video and out-of-sync audio?
If this occurs, make sure your system meets the recommended requirements for
video playback. You can also place the ScreenBeam display adapter in an open
space and try again.
If running your laptop on battery, make sure its power settings are configured for
“Maximum Performance.”
My audio volume is too low. What’s wrong?
If your volume is set too low, increase the audio output from ScreenBeam
Preferences > Adjust volume level.
Why does the image appear larger than what my TV can display?
This is known as “overscan.” To adjust the screen size, go to the ScreenBeam
Preferences > Adjust Screen Size.
Why can’t my Google Nexus 4 connect to ScreenBeam Display Adapter?
If this occurs, update your ScreenBeam display adapter to firmware 1.0.26 or higher. Refer to the ScreenBeam and Nexus 4 User Guide documentation for more
information.
Why can’t my Android device connect even though I have the Wi-Fi
Direct option?
For an Android device to connect, it must have the Wireless Display software
application. Check your device user guide to see if the “Wireless display” or
“Miracast screen mirroring” feature is available. Refer to your Miracast mobile
device latest user guide for more information.
