In order to establish a connection between the transmitter and receiver, the receiver must be connected to a TV or projector that is powered on, and the transmitter must have at least one source component connected and powered on. Be sure to place the receiver within the same room as the transmitter. For best performance the receiver should be mounted vertically on a wall with a clear view of the room. The receiver should never be mounted behind a TV or Projector. The receiver should be orientated horizontally such that the Rocketfish logo is parallel to the ceiling/floor (not rotated so that the logo is parallel to the walls). Furthermore, as the HDMI automatic port detection feature is not compatible with some HDMI sources, please insure that the correct input with the powered HDMI source component is selected on the 4 port transmitter (as indicated by a lit HDMI1, 2, 3, or 4 LED on the transmitter).

There are actually multiple ways to switch from one HDMI port to another on the WirelessHD kit transmitter:

The switching time from one HDMI port to another is affected by several factors related to the specific source components connected to the transmitter as well as the display that is connected to the receiver. Some combinations of HDMI sources and displays are able to form a secure HDCP encrypted connection faster than others through an HDMI switch. Typical HDMI port switching times range from 4 to 15 seconds depending on these factors.

Yes. The latency in transmission from the transmitter to the receiver is typically 2 milliseconds, which means that when you press the button on the game controller, the game will react immediately.

As long as the WirelessHD receiver includes a logo (whether it is an external adapter or integrated into a 2012 or later model TV), then the transmitter can connect to it by pressing and holding the HDMI/WVAN switch on the back of the transmitter for > 3 seconds. The transmitter will then seek out the next receiver it can find within the same room. If you run into difficulty using this feature then try powering off the old receiver before attempting to switch to the new receiver.

As long as the WirelessHD transmitter includes a logo (whether it is an external adapter or integrated into a laptop, Blu-ray player, etc), then the receiver will accept any incoming WiHD connection requests from different WiHD sources. You can trigger a connection request from the original Rocketfish transmitter (to switch back to the transmitter for example) by changing HDMI input ports, or power cycling the current selected HDMI source, or by power cycling the transmitter itself. If your TV is HDMI-CEC compliant then you may also be able to switch between different WiHD transmitters using your TV remote. Note that some WiHD source devices, such as a laptop with integrated Wireless HD, require the use of a software program called WirelessHD Application Controller in order to connect or disconnect to the WirelessHD receiver.

Our engineering team has determined that this WirelessHD kit and U-verse set top box have a basic incompatibility. When the power-saving feature engages, the signal connecting the devices is lost and can only be restored by power-cycling both the transmitter and receiver. Unfortunately, there is not a fix we can provide for this issue.

Unfortunately, there are some random compatibility issues experienced when using this kit with a Dish HD receiver. There is no fix at this time.

When you change inputs, the signal is lost between the transmitter and receiver. You will need to power off all connected devices and restart to reestablish the signal.
