How do I set up the SmartVU?
Follow the instructions on the Quick Start Guide (find it in the box!) to connect the SmartVU to your TV - it's quick & easy.
Here're a few tips to give you an even smoother run!
Plug the SmartVU to a power socket if you can. While the SmartVU can be connected to a USB port to most TVs and be powered that way, it's way more reliable to plug it to a power socket (that's why it comes with a power adaptor, use it).
Get close to your Wi-Fi router. You need a clear & consistent Wi-Fi signal to have a good stream. The stability of your connection also affects video quality. To get top-notch video quality, position the SmartVU so it's within range of your Wi-Fi router so your Wi-Fi signal doesn't need to pass through too many obstacles before it reaches the SmartVU.
