How to set up an AV sender


AV Senders can be a handy way of wirelessly sending the signal from one piece of kit to another. For example, if you have a blu-ray player or games console in one room, but want to watch it on a TV in a different room.

AV Senders include a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter will send the signal to the receiver, which needs to be connected to your TV. Most AV senders need to have the transmitter set up fairly close to the receiver so you get a good quality signal. A lot of them will have a maximum range of 30M when they have a direct line of sight, and this'll be reduced if the transmitter and receiver are in separate rooms.


Setting it up


Connect the AV Sender to the kit you're sending from (blu-ray player, game console, TV box, etc).



If the AV sender came with an IR blaster, connect it.



Turn on the source device, and the AV sender.



Connect the AV receiver to the TV.


Turn on the TV and the AV receiver.



Try to aim the sender and receiver at each other to make sure you get the best quality.

Your TV should now be receiving the signal that's being sent from the source.
