Preparing to Set Up

Planning your Destination setup

Y ou've probably already decided where you want to set up and use your Destination, but before you start unpacking and connecting all the system components, take a few minutes to be sure all of these elements are available in the location you've selected. A Monitor stand or Entertainment Center ­ You'll need a strong, flat, level surface capable of supporting your monitor at a comfortable viewing level. B Power source ­ Y system requires our connection to a grounded (3-prong) power outlet and should be installed on a surge protector strip (not included). C TV signal source ­ Y our system accepts and displays coaxial TV signals from an antenna, a direct cable TV connection, cable box, satellite receiver, or a combination of these sources. D Telephone connection ­ Y system our requires connection to a standard telephone wall jack for phone, fax, internet, modem, and TV programming guide (DestiVu) subscription functions.
