SM
Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack Stereo RF
Modulator. Your modulator is designed to convert the
separate audio and video signals from a video camera,
computer, portable VCR, DVD player or satellite receiver
into VHF TV signals that you can view on a TV set
without Audio/Video (A/V) inputs. This means you can
connect a DVD player to an older TV's antenna/cable
input. The modulator's gold-plated jacks and terminals
assure maximum reliability and minimum signal loss.
The modulator has two sets of inputs (front/back) so you
can connect two devices at the same time.
CONNECTIONS
Your modulator has two sets of inputs, one in the back and one in the
front. The following connection information applies to either set of inputs.

The A/V jacks on your modulator are color-coded to correspond to the
colors on A/V cable plugs. Be sure to match up the jacks and plugs by
color before completing the connections.

REQUIRED ACCESSORIES
Note to the CATV System Installer
The following required accessories are available at your local RadioShack store or online at www.radioshack.com.
This reminder is provided to call the
CATV system installer's attention to
A/V Shielded Cable (1)

Three Plugs (Stereo)
guidelines for proper grounding and, in
particular, specifies that the cable ground
shall be connected to the grounding
system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as practical.
• If your TV only has 300-ohm VHF screw terminals, attach a 75- ohm to 300-ohm matching transformer to
the screw terminals and connect the coaxial cable to the transformer to complete the connection.
• The modulator selects S-Video as the first priority if both VIDEO and S-VIDEO jacks are connected.

USING YOUR MODULATOR
Use the push-button switch on the front panel to select the
device connected to the front or the back of the
modulator. The FRONT LED lights green when
the front jacks are selected.
1. Turn on the TV and set it to
channel 3 or 4, whichever is
not used for regular
broadcasts in your area.
2. Set CHANNEL 3 /4 on the
modulator to the same channel
you set the TV (3 or 4).
3. Turn on the connected
video source. Make sure
that the front panel switch
is selecting the inputs you
are using.
C
ARE
Keep the modulator dry; if it gets
wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use
and store the modulator only in
normal temperature
environments. Handle the
modulator carefully; do not drop
it. Keep the modulator away from
dust and dirt, and wipe it with a
damp cloth occasionally to keep it
looking new.
If your modulator is not
performing as it should, take it to
your local RadioShack store for
assistance. To locate your
Stand
nearest RadioShack, use the
(Supplied)
store locator feature on
RadioShack's website
(www.radioshack.com), or call
1-800-The Shack (843-7422) and
follow the menu options.
Modifying or tampering with the
modulator's internal components
can cause a malfunction and
might invalidate its warranty and
void your FCC authorization to
operate it.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in
a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
• If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires
that you stop using your modulator.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
RadioShack may cause interference and void the user's
