How to make my TV wireless

Updated February 21, 2017

A TV is used as a display for watching movies from video source devices like DVDs and Blu-ray players. To eliminate the cables that transmit the video signal between a video source device and a TV, use a wireless HDTV module. The transmitter and receiver that comes with the HDTV module -- of which there are a number that can be purchased at varying prices -- will sync with each other. This will provide a wireless link of the video signal between the video source device and the TV. Neither the video source device or the TV will be modified in any way by using the wireless HDTV module.

Place the transmitter of a wireless HDTV module, for example, the GefenTV (see Resources), next to the DVD or Blu-ray player. Plug the power cord of the transmitter into a wall socket for power.

Plug one end of an HDMI cable into the HDMI output on the DVD or Blu-ray player. Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI input on the transmitter.

Place the receiver of the wireless HDTV module next to the TV. Plug the power cord of the transmitter into a wall socket for power.

Plug one end of an HDMI cable into the HDMI output on the receiver. Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI input on the TV.

Turn on the TV. Press the "Menu" button. Select "Settings" from the onscreen menu. Select "Video" from below "Settings." Select "Video input" from below "Video." Select the HDMI input from below "Video input." Press the "Menu" button.

Turn on the receiver and transmitter if either has a power button.

Turn on the DVD or Blu-ray player. Press the "Menu" button. Select "Video" from the onscreen menu. Select "Video output" from beneath "Video." Select "HDMI" from beneath "Video output." Press the "Menu" button.

Press the "Source" or "Channel" button on the transmitter. Continue pressing the button until the "HDMI" LED or the number "1" LED on the transmitter lights up.

Press the "Source" button on the receiver. Continue pressing the button until the "HDMI" LED or the number "1" LED on the receiver lights up.

Warning

Don't have cell phones next to the transmitter or receiver as they can cause interference.
