DG180-S - Wireless Video Sender System
A/V Channel Settings
The xSender™ features 4 Audio/Video Channels. Each of these A/V Channels changes the frequency on which the xSender™ operates and is useful for when other wireless devices are present in your
home. Because the A/V Channel switch allows you to ‘fine tune’ the frequency on which your
xSender™ operates, it is possible to overcome most interference and reception troubles that may
occur.
For your xSender™ to function correctly it is very important that the A/V Channel is set the same on
both the Transmitter and Receiver.
