Before You BeginWith the Cardio Theater xTV wireless system, fitness facilities canadd entertainment to exercise rooms without the high cabling costsusually associated with entertainment systems. The xTV wirelesssystem gives people the choice of listening to music, radio, orprograms shown on TVs while they exercise. The person simplyplugs a stereo headphone into the headphone jack, selects thedesired entertainment, and exercises while listening to high-fidelitysound.An xTV wireless system consists of one or more xTV-9T Transmitters,one for each TV and audio component, and a number of xTV900receivers installed on exercise equipment throughout the room.Cardio Theater offers two different xTV900 receivers: xTV-9RLPLow Power Standalone Receiver and xTV-9RAB Integrated AudioReceiver. See Figure 1. The standalone receiver attaches to thehandlebars of almost any exercise equipment, while the otherreceiver integrates with the latest Precor cardio equipmentintroduced in 2006. Both receivers allow facilities to offerentertainment to people using a variety of exercise equipment, oldand new, from a variety of manufacturers.This guide explains how to install and maintain both xTV900receivers. For proper installation, please read this guide thoroughlyand follow the instructions.xTV-9RLP Low Power Standalone ReceiverChannel numberdisplay shows currentselectionchChannel buttons let youmove through availablechannelsvolVolume buttons letyou adjust the soundlevelmuteMute button allowsyou to quickly quietthe soundxTV-9RAB Integrated Audio ReceiverChannel buttons letyou move throughavailable channelsVolume buttons letyou adjust thesound levelNote: For information about xTV-9T Transmitters, refer to the xTV-9TTransmitter Installation and Maintenance Guide.E N T E R TA I N M E N T C O N T R O L SMUTEMute button allowsyou to quickly quietthe soundVOLCHChannel number display showscurrent selectionFigure 1: Introduction to standalone and integrated receiversInstallation and Maintenance Guide: Before You Begin4

About the xTV900 ReceiverThe xTV900 receiver supports many channels of high-fidelity sound.Use of the receiver is intuitive; people can typically begin using thereceiver with little or no training.During installation, the technician attaches receivers to selectedequipment in the facility. Receivers are typically powered by theequipment to which they are attached. For example, whenconnected to a treadmill, the receiver is powered continuously aslong as the treadmill is turned on. With self-powered equipment,such as cycles and elliptical crosstrainers, the receiver turns onwhen a person is using the equipment, or the optional poweradapter is connected to the equipment.Note: To receive power from exercise equipment, standalonereceivers require exercise equipment with CSAFE powerconnections. Otherwise, the receiver must be powered through anAC power adapter plugged into a power outlet.Installation RequirementsReview the following installation requirements before assembly: With new xTV wireless installations, we recommend installing thereceivers on the equipment first, then installing the transmitters.Doing so will allow installers to check the sound quality of thetransmitters throughout the room. Receiver channels are programmed during installation and willcorrespond to the TV and audio options available. The receiverautomatically acquires the available channels from the installedtransmitters and assigns them to channel numbers, starting withthe lowest transmitting channel to the highest transmittingchannel, regardless of which channels are used. To avoid confusion with people using the wireless system, youwant receivers to logically select TV and audio components basedon their placement. So, on the receiver, channel 1 would select thefirst TV, channel 2 would select the second TV, and so on. Tosupport this logical usage, transmitters need to be installed inchannel order, as explained in the Transmitter Installation andMaintenance Guide. There is no correlation between channel numbers on transmittersand channel numbers shown on receivers when they areprogrammed. For more information about transmitter channels,refer to the Transmitter Installation and Maintenance Guide. Transmitters and receivers should be installed so they are within150 feet (46 meters) of each other and are in direct line of sight.For example, if you are within 100 feet and can see the transmitterantenna, the receivers should have good reception.Installation and Maintenance Guide: Before You Begin5

Programming Each ReceiverThis section explains how to use the automatic programmingprocess to set up xTV900 receivers. During automatic programming,the receiver acquires the available channels from the installedtransmitters, and assigns them to channel numbers. You will need tofollow this process for each new receiver, or when a receiver isreplaced.After automatic programming, a receiver may be missing somechannels or the programming is incorrect. You will find a section thatexplains how to manually program a receiver to add or removechannels as needed.You can follow the instructions in this section for both the standaloneand integrated receivers.Automatic Programming1. Make sure all transmitters are properly installed and plugged in.Important: Transmitters must not share the same channel,because it will cause a problem for the automatic programmingfeature of the receivers and affect the performance of thewireless system.2. Power up the receiver. If it is connected to self-powered exerciseequipment, you or an assistant will need to use the equipment.The optional power adapter is a useful tool for self-poweredequipment.3. Begin the automatic programming process on a receiver bypressing the Channel and Mute buttons simultaneously for3 seconds.4. When the display shows “AP”, release the buttons. The displaythen shows a number from “-1” to “-5,” which indicates itsprogram mode.Table 1: Receiver programming modesInstallation and Maintenance Guide: Programming Each ReceiverDisplay NumberProgram Mode Description-1Cardio Theater xTV program mode (default)-2Cardio Theater LCS program mode-4Cardio Theater xTV program mode (Australia)-5Cardio Theater LCS program mode (Australia)16

5. If necessary, use the Channel and buttons to select theappropriate program mode. Most facilities use xTV programmode -1.6. Press the Mute button to select the program mode. The receiverstarts the automatic programming sequence, scanning the activetransmitter channels and storing them in memory. When thesequence is finished, the receiver restarts and the first availablechannel appears on the display.Once automatic programming has completed, you shouldconfirm that the receiver has picked up all the available channels.Automatic programming can be affected by a number of factors,including outside interference. This may cause the receiver tomiss some channels or program unwanted channels.7. Check that the receiver can clearly receive the available channelsby selecting, then listening to each channel programmed.Manually Programming a ReceiverThe receiver automatically searches the area for available channelsduring automatic programming. Sometimes, however, the automaticprogramming feature does not pick up all the transmitted channels,or it erroneously programs unwanted channels. You can manuallyprogram the receiver to add or remove channels and solve theseproblems. You must run automatic programming before you can runmanual programming.When you enter manual programming, the receiver will display thetransmitter channel numbers it has found. For example, aninstallation has five xTV-9T Transmitters, assigned channel numbers2, 6, 7, 10, and 11 and installed in that order from left to right. Thereceiver has found these transmitted channels and assigned them toa sequence of channel numbers that it displays as 1 through 5. SeeTable 2.As you move through the channels on the receiver, be aware thatthe receiver orders transmitter channels from the lowest to thehighest, then assigns each to a channel, starting with channel 1.8. If you find the receiver is missing some channels or theprogramming is incorrect, manually program the receiver, asexplained in the next section. Skip to step 8 of that section.9. Repeat steps 2 through 8 for each receiver that will be installed.Installation and Maintenance Guide: Programming Each Receiver17

Most facilities use -1 Cardio TheaterxTV program mode.7. Press the Mute button to select the program mode and startautomatic programming. During this process the receiver scansthe active transmitter channels and stores them in memory. Youmust run automatic programming before you can run manualprogramming.8. Start manual programming by pressing the Channel andMute buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds.9. When the “-P” appears on the display, release both buttons.Channel number 1 appears on the display.1. If you have already run automatic programming, as described inthe previous section, skip to step 8.2. Make sure all transmitters are properly installed and plugged in.3. Power up the receiver. If it is connected to self-powered exerciseequipment, you or an assistant will need to use the equipment.The optional power adapter is a useful tool for self-poweredequipment.4.
