Reset of every radio links can be obtained by pressing the “RESET” button for a few seconds on the Titan HD2 Rx side.
It can be useful to do when pairing issues are encountered (when a Rx unit has been paired with too many Tx units).

Guide 1 : Pair 1  StarliteRF with 2 or more TitanHD2 Tx
Up to 2 Tx can be paired (or registered) with a StarliteRF, in order to be swapped by use of smart corner A/B (smart corners menu) or tool A/B (tools menu).
Nevertheless, if you use only 1 Tx at a time, you just have to pair it and it will be automatically displayed.
Procedure to set up properly Tx in order to use swap Tx function (if you use a single Tx, just pair it regardless if Tx A or Tx B is selected) in "Menu parameters / TX pair":

  • Switch on your 2 Tx, we recommend a distance of 10 ft (3m) between StarliteRF and Tx. Press icon “Reset Tx”
  • Press icon “Tx A”, press “REG” button on Tx unit A until blue led blinks fast (2s).
    Wait until the message “Press OK” appears on the monitor, and then press icon “OK”
    The first Tx has been registered. Icon “Tx A” is now marked “Tx B”
  • Press icon “Tx B”, press “REG” button on Tx unit B until blue led blinks fast (2s)
    Wait until the message “Press OK” appears on the monitor, and then press icon “OK”
    The secondth Tx has been registered, and you can swap them with A/B icons.

 

Guide 2: Pair 1 TitanHD2 Tx with 1 or more StarliteRF
Up to 4 Starlite RF can be paired (or registered) with a Titan HD2 Tx:

  • Switch on your Tx, we recommend a distance of 10 ft (3m) between StarliteRF and Tx.
  • Switch on StarliteRF 1
  • In "Menu parameters / TX pair", press icon “Tx A”, press “REG” button on Tx unit A until blue led blinks fast (2s)
    Wait until the message “Press OK” appears on the monitor, and then press icon “OK”
  • Repeat the same procedure for the other StarliteRF.

 

Guide 3 : Pair 1 TitanHD2 Tx with 1 or more TitanHD2 Rx

  • Switch on your Tx, we recommend a distance of 10 ft (3m) between Tx and Rx.
  • Switch on TitanRX and connect a monitor to the output.
  • Press “REG” button on TitanHD2 Rx unit until blue led blinks fast (2s) 
  • Press “REG” button on TitanHD2 Tx unit until blue led blinks fast (2s) 
  • When message “Press OK” appears on the monitor,then press “REG” button again on TitanHD2 Rx
  • Repeat this procedure for the other TitanHD2 Rx.
