Installation of Beyonwiz U4
This chapter will guide you through the whole installation process of Beyonwiz U4.
Please read each section carefully to make sure that the system runs properly.
2.1Connecting Antenna Cables
Beyonwiz U4 is integrated with 3 digital tuners and 1 USB Tuner, and one of the first
steps is to connect antenna cable(s) to Beyonwiz U4 in order to gain optimal signal
quality. You can either choose one of the following connection methods depending on
the equipment you have.

Where you have only one Antenna cable, connect the cable to TUNER 1 Input and
then use the provided loop cables to loop the signal through to the other tuners as
pictured.
12
Installation
B.
Indoor Antenna Amplifier / Splitter
If you find that you are losing too much signal by the time you get to Tuner 3 or 4 the
use of an indoor Amplifier splitter is a good option, you can usually pick up a 4way
splitter for $35 - $50.
2.2 Connecting the TV (and VCR)
Beyonwiz U4 provides a variety of audio/video connection
methods.
A. Connecting TV via HDMI Cable
Most HDTVs have HDMI connectors to ensure the highest picture quality. In the
rear panel of Beyonwiz U4 one HDMI connector is available for this purpose.
Connect your TV to Beyonwiz U4 using a HDMI cable as follows.
Chapter 2. Installation 13

each TV Network. So when you get to Live TV switch to one of the channels for each TV Station for
around 30secs to load the EPG for all of their channels. e.g. In Sydney you would change channel to
ABC, SBS, 7, 9 & 10 for 30secs each and that would load the EPG for all of the channels.
