Please read the following instructions carefully, and retain this booklet for future reference. The Philips Wireless TV link SBC VL1200 allows you to distribute any kind of video signal, and any cable programme (via your VCR, connected to the Wireless TV Link) throughout the house without the need for extra wiring. For example, you can enjoy the freedom of watching Pay-TV or a film from your living-room video recorder on your bedroom TV. In fact, you can view any video source (digital or analogue set-top boxes, DVDs, satellite receivers, VCRs etc.) on your second TV, no matter what room it’s in. The signal goes through walls and ceilings so there is no need for running cables or drilling holes. The dual source input allows you to directly connect any two video devices for easy switching between sources. You can enjoy your favourite programmes on a second TV while others watch their favourite programmes on the main TV. The Philips Wireless TV Link is based on wireless RF technology that offers you freedom of movement and convenience. Because it is wireless it is more susceptible to outside interference than for instance cabled signals. This interference may come from sources that include microwave ovens or other TV Links in the vicinity. To enable you to enjoy the best possible performance, the Philips Wireless TV Link has a channel selector switch, which enables you to select the channel that provides optimum viewing.

3 2 Installation Before you start with the actual installation, note the difference between the Transmitter unit and the Receiver unit. The Transmitter unit has three buttons on the front and the type label on the bottom reads “TRANSMITTER”, The Receiver unit’s label reads “RECEIVER”. The Transmitter unit must be installed close to the video source. The Receiver unit must be installed close to the second TV. Any satellite receiver, Pay-TV decoder box (either digital or analogue), video recorder (VCR), DVD player, camcorder, etc. can be used as a video source. Observe the figures on the fold out page during the installation procedure. Step 1: Install the Receiver unit (figure A): • Position the Receiver unit somewhere close to your second TV so that the front of the unit can receive commands from your remote control. • Connect a SCART cable from the SCART connector at the back of the Receiver unit (figure A-1) to the SCART connector at the back of your second TV. • Plug the cable of the power adapter into the 9V DC socket (figure A-3) at the rear of the Receiver unit. • Plug the power adapter into a mains socket. Now that the Receiver unit is installed, go to where the video source is located to install the Transmitter unit, but first make sure the channel selection switch (figure A-2, figure B-8) is in the same position for both the Receiver and Transmitter units. Some things to know about the Transmitter unit before installing it: The Transmitter unit has two SCART input connectors (figure B-3 and B-5) and two SCART output connectors (figure B-4 and B-6). The Transmitter unit has an infrared ‘eye’ at the front (figure B-12) that ‘looks’ down to equipment placed beneath it. This ‘eye’ sends the commands, received by the Receiver unit from your Remote Control, to the video source you wish to control. So the best position for the Transmitter unit is just above the video equipment with the fronts properly aligned (figure C). In some cases you will need the supplied remote control extender cord. Further on we’ll tell you when and how to install the remote control extender cord if you can’t place the Transmitter unit in its ideal position, or if positioning it poses any problem. Step 2: Install the Transmitter unit (figure B): • Position the Transmitter unit on top of the video sources you wish to control with the front panels of the units aligned vertically (figure C). • Connect one of the supplied SCART cables from your VCR (or any other video source) to the SCART connector marked “SCART IN 1” (figure B-3) at the back of Transmitter unit. • Connect the other supplied SCART cable from the SCART connector marked “SCART OUT 1” (figure B-4) at the back of the Transmitter unit to the SCART connector on your TV. (figure B). Check your TV’s user manual in case it has multiple SCART inputs (Ext1, Ext2) • Ensure that the “SCART OUT 1” output mode switch (figure B-1) is set to . • Plug the cable of the power adapter into the 9V DC socket (figure B-7) at the rear of the Transmitter unit. • Plug the power adapter into a mains socket.

How to watch cable programmes on your second TV (TV2) without running a cable • Switch on your VCR • Select your VCR as the video source for the Wireless TV Link. (figure A-14, “INPUT 1” or “INPUT 2”) • Select the programme you want to watch on your VCR (Programme UP / DOWN on your VCR or via remote control). Normally you will have programmed the order of programmes to correspond with the programmes on your main TV. • From your second TV you can use the VCR’s remote control (or a universal remote control, set to VCR) to select the programme you want to watch (Programme UP / DOWN). • The second TV should remain at the EXTERNAL AV (SCART) input. • From your second TV you can start watching the video tape by pressing PLAY on the VCR’s remote control (or a universal remote control, set to VCR). Note The VCR must be connected to the cable TV network and to the Philips Wireless TV Link. Optional steps • Connect a SCART cable (not included) from your DVD (or any other video source you prefer) to “SCART IN 2” (figure B-5) at the back of Transmitter unit. • Connect a SCART cable (not included) from “SCART OUT 2” (figure B-6) at the back of the Transmitter unit to the second SCART connector on your TV, if available. • Ensure that the “SCART OUT 2” output mode switch (figure B-9) is set to .

7 6 Testing Step 1: testing the video signal You should now see the video source you selected on your second TV. It may be necessary to reposition the Receiver unit to make sure the built-in antenna gives the best quality picture. Repositioning the Transmitter unit, centimetre by centimetre over the surface on which it’s positioned, can also help to improve the quality. Step 2: testing the remote control extender Try out the remote control to make sure it is working correctly. Point the remote control of the video source you are watching at the Receiver unit and change the programme number or press Play and then Stop. A red light (figure A-7) flashes on the Receiver unit indicating that it has received the remote control command. On the Transmitter unit a red light (figure B-13) flashes to indicate that it is sending the extended remote control command to the video sources. If no red light flashes on the Transmitter unit it may be necessary to reposition either of the remote control antennas on the rear of the Receiver unit (figure A-8) or Transmitter unit (figure B-15). The red light on the Transmitter unit should now flash when a remote control command is given at the receiver. If the video sour video sour video sour video sour video source ce ce ce ce does not respond to the given remote control command please install the remote control extender cord. Installing the remote control extender cord A cord with two IR eyes and a jack plug is provided to deliver the signals from the Transmitter unit to the video sources you wish to control. • Ensure that the Transmitter unit is switched off. • Plug the jack plug into the socket (figure B-2) marked IR at the back of the Transmitter unit. • Locate the IR sensor on the video source (refer to the video sources Instructions for Use). If you cannot identify the IR sensor on the video source do the following: - Ensure that both Transmitter and Receiver units are switched on. - Ask another person to press and hold a key of the video source’s remote control while pointing it at the Receiver unit. (Both A-7 and B-13 must be flashing) - While they are doing this, slowly move an IR eye along the front panel of the video source. The distance between the IR eye and the front panel should not exceed 1 centimetre. - When the video source reacts to the command from the remote control you have found the correct position. • Remove the adhesive tape from the back of the IR eye and stick the eye onto the IR sensor window of the video source. • If necessary, repeat the procedure for the second video source. Note Instead of sticking the IR eye onto the device you can also try to place the IR eye 5-10 cm in front of the device, which makes finding the exact location less critical. It is possible that particular brands and types of TV react to remote control signals by making a buzzing noise when a command is given. Refer to the Troubleshooting section if you are still having problems getting your configuration to work correctly. General notes The picture and sound quality will be influenced by the use of microwave ovens. Other wireless systems (Bluetooth, wireless LANs, etc.) can also adversely influence the quality of picture and sound. The Wireless TV Link is a Radio Frequency (RF) based product. As such its performance can suffer the same kinds of interference as GSMs, portable radios and other RF-based products. If the same video source is selected for both TVs, then you get the same programme on each TV. The Wireless TV link is not limited to just one room or house. You can use it anywhere in or around the house. Consequently, anybody in the vicinity of your house (up to the maximum operating range) who also owns a Wireless TV link set to the same channel, can watch the same programmes that are playing on your video source.

A separate receiver allows you to watch the same transmitted video signal in another location (e.g. the TV in your study), regardless of how many other receivers you might have. In order to prohibit the mixing up of remote control commands it’s not advisable to use a TV as a video source. Some built-in VCRs (TV-VCR combination) cannot be used with the Transmitter unit of the Wireless TV link (depends on brand and type). If you wish to leave the original remote controls with your video sources, Philips has a complete range of Universal Remote Controls that cover all the equipment you want to operate, r r r r regar egar egar egar egardless of brand dless of brand dless of brand dless of brand dless of brand or age. The remote control extender operates within the 32kHz to 40kHz range. Video sources operating outside this range cannot be controlled remotely via the remote control extender. The Wireless TV Link’s Transmitter unit can support the channel downloading feature of high- end TVs and VCRs. (This channel downloading feature is also known as ‘Follow-TV’, ‘Easylink’, ‘SmartLink’, ‘AV-Link’, ‘MEGALogic’, ‘TV-Link’ or ‘Q-Link’). Fully wired SCART cables that support this feature must be purchased separately. Please note that both your TV and VCR must support this feature. The Wireless TV Link does not support P50 ‘what you see is what you record’ functionality. Radio wave safety: When switched on, the Philips Wireless TV Link transmits and receives radio waves. The Philips Wireless TV Link complies with the standards that are defined for it. The Philips Wireless TV Link has an operating range of up to 100 metres in open air. Walls, ceilings and other large objects may limit the useable operating range to about 30 metres in the house. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
