SmartVU-X Contents


Along with the SmartVU-X dongle and bluetooth remote control, you will also find an HDMI cable, power adaptor and a magnet.

There is also a printed Quick Start Guide included.



The SmartVU-X does not use a satellite dish or TV aerial, so connecting it is very simple.

Just connect the HDMI cable from any spare HDMI port on your TV to the SmartVU-X. Then connect the power adaptor to the SmartVU-X and plug into a wall socket.

Carefully pull the backing paper off the magnet to expose the sticky surface. Press the magnet sticky side onto a clear spot on the back of your TV. The SmartVU-X will now hang there out of sight.
