Question 10: What should I do if my TV remote control does not work with the video receiver?

  • Make sure that your TV supports CEC and that it is enabled. CEC allows multiple devices, connected through HDMI, to be controlled by a single remote control. CEC may be called something different on your TV. See the documentation that came with your TV for more information.
  • Make sure that there is nothing blocking the video receiver.
  • Make sure that you point the remote control directly at the TV’s IR sensor.
  • Take a few steps back from the TV to be sure that you are pointing the remote control at an angle that the IR sensor can sense.
  • Your remote control may have a low battery. Replace your remote control battery.

Question 11: Does my TV have to have CEC to use the video receiver?

[ Edited ]
  • Your TV must have CEC to change the video receiver’s default settings. The video receiver default settings work in most scenarios and you likely will not need CEC to connect your Miracast-enabled device to your TV.
    Note:
    It is recommended that the default settings only be changed by advanced users that understand the Miracast technology.
  • If you need to change your default settings and the TV you want to use does not have CEC, see Question 13 for more information.

Question 16: Is my video receiver compatible with the latest firmware update?

[ Edited ]

Only certain video receivers are compatible with the current firmware update. Installing the firmware update on an incompatible device may cause your video receiver to become inoperable. To determine if your video receiver is compatible, you can look at the packaging or the MAC address. For firmware installation instructions, see Question 17.

 

 

Look at the packaging:

If your video receiver was packaged in a black box, you may install the firmware update.If your video receiver was packaged in a white box, do not install the firmware update.

12-1248_white pck.jpg

 

OR

 

Look at the MAC address:

Example:

 

12-1248_example_1.png

 

12-1248_value table.jpg

 

The value table shows that C=12.
This means that “C” is larger than 0.

 

 

 

Compare your MAC address with the bottom of the range:

  1. Find the MAC address on the back of your video receiver.
    12-1248_find mac address.jpg
  2. Print the table provided (in step 3), then copy your video receiver’s MAC address into the table with each character in a different column.
  3. Starting with the left column, find the first values that do not match. These are the only two values you need to look at.
    12-1248_fill-table_1.jpg
  4. Compare the two values you found in step 3 and determine which value is higher. Use the “Value Table” to compare letters.
    12-1248_value table.jpg
  5. If the value you entered is higher, continue to step 6.
    OR
    If the value you entered is lower than the value in the blue box, DO NOT update your firmware. Installing firmware to an incompatible device may cause your video receiver to become inoperable. You do not need to continue following these instructions.

 

Compare your MAC address with the top of the range:

  1. Print the table provided (in step 7), then copy your video receiver’s MAC address into the table with each character in a different column.
    Note: The values in the step 7 table are different than the values in the step 3 table.
  2. Starting with the left column, find the first values that do not match. These are the only two values you need to look at.
    12-1248_fill-table_1.jpg
  3. Compare the two values you found in step 7 and determine which value is higher. Use the “Value Table” to compare letters.
    12-1248_value table.jpg
  4. If the value you entered is lower, you can update your firmware. See below for further instructions.
    OR
    If the value you entered is higher than the value in the blue box, DO NOT update your firmware. Installing firmware to an incompatible device may cause your video receiver to become inoperable.

Question 17: How do I update the firmware on my video receiver?

[ Edited ]

CAUTION: Some Miracast models are not compatible with the current firmware update. Installing the firmware update on an incompatible device may cause your video receiver to become inoperable. To determine if you should update your firmware, see Question 16

 

To update the firmware on your video receiver, you need a computer with an Internet connection.

  1. Go to www.rocketfishproducts.com, then click Support & Service. Enter “RF-WFD301” in the box under Manual, Firmware, Drivers & Product Information, then click Search.
  2. If a firmware update is available, click on the link to download and save the firmware to your computer. Remember where you save this file.
  3. Press the TV’s Input or Source button to select the HDMI input the video receiver will connect to.
    OR
    If your TV has input sensing, you may not be able to select the correct HDMI input until the video receiver is connected. Connect the USB cable and video receiver, select the correct HDMI input, then turn off your TV. When you turn your TV back on, immediately press and hold the RESET button on the video receiver until the firmware update screen is displayed (up to 30 seconds). Skip to step 6.
  4. Insert the micro USB connector into the micro USB port on the receiver, then insert the other end into the USB port on your TV. If the TV does not have a USB port, use a power USB charger (not included).
  5. Connect the video receiver to your TV, then immediately press and hold the RESET button on the video receiver until the firmware update screen is displayed. The LED on the video receiver starts to blink and the firmware update screen is displayed within 30 seconds.
  6. View the wireless networks on your computer, disconnect the computer from the current network, then connect it to the WiFi-Video-Receiver wireless network.

  7. Open your web browser and enter http://192.168.16.1 in the browser tab. A Windows Security window opens.
  8. Enter “admin” for both the user name and password, then click OK.
  9. Click Browse to open the file you downloaded in step 2.
  10. Click Upload New Firmware to begin the firmware update. 
    Note: This process takes approximately 2-3 minutes, depending on the connection speed between your computer and the video receiver.
  11. When Firmware upgrade complete is displayed, click Continue. The TV screen shows the message “System update in progress… Do not power down, system will restart automatically.” The video receiver reboots and the firmware update is complete.
