Important safety instructions
CAUTION: Risk of electric shock. Do not open.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol inside a triangle is intended to alert you to the
presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage within your RF modulator’s enclosure. This voltage
may be strong enough to cause an electric shock.
The exclamation point inside a triangle is intended to alert you to important operating and
maintenance instructions.
• Read and follow these instructions.
• Retain these instructions for future reference.
• Follow all warnings.
• Do not use your RF modulator near water. Do not expose your RF modulator to dripping or splashing liquids.
Do not place objects filled with liquid, such as a vase, on top of your RF modulator. Do not expose your RF
modulator to rain.
• Clean your RF modulator with a dry cloth only.
• Do not block ventilation openings.
• Do not install near a heat source, such as a radiator, heat register, stove, or other heat producing device
(including an amplifier).
• Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one blade
wider than the other. The wide blade is a safety feature. If the plug does not fit into your electrical outlet,
contact an electrician to relace the obsolete outlet.
• Do not walk on, set items on, or pinch the power cord, especially at the plug and the back of your RF
• Unplug your RF modulator during lightning storms or when you do not intend to use your RF modulator for

CH 3/4 TO TV
Connecting your RF Modulator
1 Connect a Composite AV cable (not included) from
the AV output jacks (yellow for video; red & white
for stereo audio) of the source component
(Blu-ray/DVD player, Gaming system, etc.) to the
corresponding color-coded input jacks on the
RF Modulator.
NOTE: For mono AV components, use only the yellow and
white connectors of the Composite AV cable.
2 Connect the coaxial cable to the TV using one of
the following methods that matches your setup:
• If you have an RF TV source, such as a
cable/satellite box or TV antenna, connected to
the TV, disconnect that component from the TV
and connect the coaxial cable to the ANT IN jack
on the RF Modulator. Connect a separate coaxial
cable from the TO TV jack on the RF Modulator
to the RF input jack on the TV.
• If you do not have an RF TV source, connect a
coaxial cable from the TO TV jack on the
RF Modulator to the RF input jack on the TV.
NOTE: If your TV has only 300-ohm VHF screw
terminals, use a 75-ohm-to-300-ohm matching
transformer to complete the connection.
3 Connect the barrel plug on the included power
adapter to the DC IN jack on the RF Modulator, and
plug it into a standard 120V AC outlet.
Using your RF Modulator
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 RF Modulator's CHANNEL 3/4 switch to the
same channel you set the TV (3 or 4).
3 Turn on the AV component that is connected to
the RF Modulator and use it following the
manufacturers instructions.
4 To view TV channels through a cable/satellite box
or antenna that is connected to the ANT IN jack on
the RF Modulator, power off the AV component
that is connected to the RCA inputs of the
RF Modulator. The internal A/B switch in the
RF Modulator will automatically switch over to the
ANT IN device.
