If you do not have an Ethernet port nearby, you can:
• User a Powerline adapter, which will use your electrical wiring as a transmission medium for broadband Internet access.
• Use a MoCA adapter, which uses your existing coaxial wiring as a transmission medium for broadband Internet access.
For more information, see the Moxi Mate User Guide at moxi.com.
3 Connect to Your TV
Connect your Moxi Mate to your TV with the HDMI cable.
HDMI provides the best video and audio quality in one cable. If your TV doesn’t
have an HDMI input, use the component or composite cable. HDMI or component connections are required for HD video support.

Activate Your Moxi Mate
Note: During this part of the setup process, you will need to have access to a
computer with an Internet connection.
Start the Guided Setup on Your TV
Turn on your TV to start the registration of your Moxi Mate.
If a software update is available, the Moxi Mate will already be downloading that
update and restart. This may take up to 45 minutes depending on your Internet
connection speed; do not unplug your Moxi Mate during this time. When complete or if an update is not required, you will see the following registration screen
containing your Moxi ID.
Write down this ID, go to your computer, and direct an Internet browser to moxi.
com. If you have already set up a Moxi HD DVR, sign in to your account, and
select “Add a Device”. If you have purchased the Moxi Mate as a stand-alone
device, select “Activate a Moxi”. When prompted for your Moxi ID number, type in
the 12-digit Moxi ID that was displayed on your TV screen.
Once you have completed the registration process or the addition of this device,
you’ll see an 8-digit registration key on your computer screen. This registration
key will also be sent to the email address you provided during registration.
6 Complete Your Registration
Go back to your Moxi Mate, and use your remote to enter the 8-digit registration
key when prompted.
Next, confirm your account information. Your Moxi Mate will complete any downloads. When the download is complete, you’ll be asked to restart your Moxi Mate.
7 Set Your TV resolution
If you have connected your TV to your Moxi Mate with an HDMI cable, you can
skip this step.
We want to make sure that the Moxi Menu displays correctly on your TV screen
and is optimized for high-definition viewing.
1. Press the Moxi button and navigate horizontally to Settings
2. Scroll vertically to TV Setup
3. Choose the highest resolution you think your TV supports. Check your TV
manual for details.
4. After making your resolution selection, wait to make sure you see the Moxi
Menu. If you do not see anything appear on your screen, wait 30 seconds
and the Moxi Mate will revert to the previous settings for you to try again.
5. For best performance, unselect any other resolutions other than the highest
one your TV supports.
