Q: What is the purpose of a wireless Audio/Video Sender?
A: A wireless audio/video sender allows you to transmit audio/video signals of cable, satellite, video camera, DVD player, VCR, projector, or computer, etc. from one room to another wirelessly. RF-Link 5.8GHz audio/video sender not only provides 300 ft (100 meters) wireless transmission (in open space), but what distinguish itself from other similar products is it avoid the interference from crowded 2.4GHz ISM band applications such as Video Sender, 802.11b Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, Cordless Phone, Microwave Oven, etc.

Q: Remote control is not working. How can I verify IR Mouse is working?

Q: How can I control my source device from the remote site?

A: To control your TV functions remotely, the IR signal transmission must be in proper line of sight and in effective range. It is important to first correctly locate the IR sensor of your source device (e.g. VCR/ DVD player/ Satellite/ Cable). Once you have located the IR sensor, you can establish your IR signal transmission via the IR mouse or simply with the transmitter.

1.

Via IR Mouse:

 
  • Place the IR Mouse properly in front of the IR sensor of the source device within 6 inch range and secure the position with the included Velcro tape.View Illustration Or
  • Attach the IR Mouse within 1 inch range next to the IR sensor of the source device.View Illustration
2. Using Transmitter:
 
  • If the space permits, you can establish your IR transmission with your transmitter. Just unplug the IR Mouse and have the transmitter's front window facing directly towards the IR sensor of your source device.View Illustration

Q: Can I watch two different programs on two TVs that are connected to the Audio/Video Sender device?
A: Both primary and secondary TV have to display the same video program. Once the channel on either TV is changed, the other TV channel will be changed accordingly. But the good news is a new Cable TV Sender (Model number ACS-5820) has been introduced at the end of 2006, which enables you to watch different channels from sending and receiving TV simultaneously without interfering with each other.

Q: Is the Audio/Video Sender for NTSC and PAL identical?
A: No, AVS-5811 NTSC and PAL version have different designs. Therefore, you can't convert a NTSC version to PAL version by simply changing the power adapter and the SCART cable. Please contact RF-Link sales department for further assistance on PAL version purchasing.

Q: I could not see any picture after I connected my Audio/Video Sender device.
A: Here are several things that you can do to quickly resolve this problem:

  • Check to see if your transmitter is connected to the video source (e.g. Set-top box, DVD player, Computer) and the receiver is connected to the receiving device (e.g. television, projector).
  • Check for proper connection of your RCA cables. Transmitter must be connected to source device via "AV OUT", and receiver must be connected to receiving device via "AV IN".
  • Ensure both transmitter and receiver are turned 'ON' and set to the same channel.
  • Check to see if the television is set to Audio/Video mode when using RCA connection. Refer to your televisions owner's manual to set the television to Audio/Video (Aux) mode.

Q: I have a 5.8GHz telephone system, will that be a problem?
A: AVS-5811 may experience interference from other 5.8GHz cordless telephones. You may have problems such as distorted picture, or horizontal hold. There is no telling what problem may occur due to various models from different telephone manufacturers. If you have a 5.8GHz phone or any other 5.8GHz system in the same environment and cannot get good audio/video reception, unplug those systems' power will help you to determine if they are the root-cause of the interference.
