PCTV HD PRO STICK is a USB tuner stick for analog (NTSC) and digital (ATSC) TV reception.

II. Hardware Install

This guide is meant to get you set up and watching TV on your PC in minutes. 1. Connect the PCTV HD Pro Stick hardware to your laptop or desktop PC using a USB 2.0 port. 2. If the Windows hardware wizard appears, cancel out of this screen and continue to the next step.
3. Select your TV connection type from the following options.
Option 1: Antenna (for digital/analog reception)
Connect coaxial cable from your rooftop or the included portable antenna output to your PCTV hardware input (Ant.).
For digital TV (ATSC) reception, you will get the best results if you connect your PCTV to a properly adjusted rooftop antenna using double-shielded coaxial cables and a digital-enabled antenna amplifier. Please contact your local dealer for rooftop / outdoor antennas optimized for digital TV (ATSC) reception. The provided telescopic antenna is designed for digital and analog TV reception in regions with good signal coverage. It is especially suitable for portable outdoor reception. If you want to use the telescopic antenna, please carefully read the following instructions: Fully extend the antenna, position it upright, as high as possible, and near a window. The antenna should not be placed near a cathode ray tube monitor, television or similar equipment as the electromagnetic field of such devices might deteriorate the signal quality. In many cases, mounting the antenna on a big metallic surface (e.g. a metallic cupboard) using its magnetic foot will improve reception. Important note: to avoid possible damage caused by the magnetic field around the antennas feet, ensure that the latter is placed at a sufficient distance from your PCs hard drive and other components that are sensitive to magnetic forces. Please note that the reception of digital TV (ATSC) is dependant on location and may be impaired by steel-reinforced walls as well as tall neighboring buildings. In this type of environment, an amplified external/roof antenna is required. It is generally not possible to receive an ATSC signal while en route (e.g. in a car or train). Check on for information about ATSC availability in your area.
Option 2: Cable (analog reception)
Connect coaxial cable from your cable jack to your PCTV hardware input (Ant.).
Option 3: Cable or Satellite Set-top Box

Stereo Audio (3.5 mm)

A/V Adapter
S-Video or Compostite Video (RCA)
1. Connect the A/V adapter cable (included) to your PCTV as illustrated above. 2. a) If your set-top box has a free S-Video output, connect the S-Video output with the S-Video input of the A/V adapter cable. b) Or: if your set-top box has a free composite video output (RCA), please connect it to the RCA composite video jack of the adapter cable. 3. Connect the stereo audio outputs of your set-top box with the stereo input (3.5mm headphone jack) of the adapter cable. Alternatively, if your set-top box has no free video and audio outputs, connect its F-connector jack labelled Out to TV or Output (or similar) to the antenna input of your PCTV using a coaxial antenna cable (not included). You will not need the A/V adapter cable for this configuration. This connection type will only work if the set-top box provides an analog TV signal at the Out to TV connector. * Note: If possible, use S-Video to ensure the highest picture quality. When using a set-top box configuration, you will need to use your set-top box remote to control your channel choices through your set-top box.

III. Software Install

1. Insert the PCTV MediaCenter Installation CD-ROM into your PCs CD or DVD drive and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. When prompted, enter your serial number. You will find your serial number printed on the software CD sleeve or on the actual CD. 3.

2. Channel Scan. a.) If you have connected the included telescopic antenna or an outdoor/rooftop antenna to your PCTV (Option 1), please select all devices. b.) If you have hooked your PCTV to your cable jack (Option 2), please uncheck the digital/ATSC tuner. You will not need to do a digital/ATSC channel scan as cable does not carry an ATSC signal.
c.) If you have connected a set-top box via the A/V adapter cable (Option 3), please only select Internet Radio.
3. Click Next to get to the scan settings dialog. In the Input Type drop down menu, please select the antenna type according to your configuration. You can leave the other settings at default. Please press Next to initialize the scan. Note: If you are using an antenna configuration (Option 1) and Pinnacle MediaCenter does not find any digital TV (ATSC) channels, please read the following: a.) Check on whether ATSC reception should be possible in your region. b.) Try to improve the signal reception by repositioning or changing the antenna (see II. Option 1). c.)
