Positioning and Fixing
In order to boost / amplify the signal that your television receives it is necessary to fit the VP3 amplifier between your aerial / antenna and the television itself. This means that the lead coming from your aerial must first go into the amplifier using the port / socket marked 'ANT IN'. You will then take a 'flylead' from any one of the sockets marked TV1 or TV2 to the television. If you have a standard coax flylead you can use the adapters provided with the VP3 to enable the connection.
If you so desire, the VP3 can be fixed to the inside of a cupboard using the units fixing points and the fixing screws provided - but this is not absolutely necessary, it can be left to sit freely if you wish. If you do fix it, remember there is an on /off switch on the unit that you may want to have access to.
TV Amplifier On / Off SwitchThe amplifier requires a 12-24 volt power supply and can be wired directly to the battery. However, you should note that if are planning to wire directly to the battery then an in-line fuse ( 5amp max ) must be fitted on the positive wire. Alternatively, you can use a 12v DC Mains Adapter ( not supplied - Vision Plus advise that you use their 12v DC Mains Adapter )
Brief Operating Instructions for the Vision Plus VP3
These are not comprehensive instructions but a guide to give you a good idea of how the VP3 operates. If you have a seperate signal finder then use that to find the best direction for your aerial first. When you switch on the VP3 the LED light on the top will light up. Having positioned your aerial you can now use the gain control to boost your signal and enjoy your television.
