  2. Hook up the BlueCurve TV Player
    1. Place the BlueCurve TV Player in a visible, well-ventilated area near the TV, an electrical outlet and a coax cable outlet. If you plan to hide the BlueCurve TV Player, you can do so after it is activated.
    2. Connect the BlueCurve TV Player to cable with one of the following options:
      • If you are connecting the BlueCurve TV Player and a Shaw modem to the same cable outlet:
        • Connect one end of coax cable to a coax cable outlet and the other end to the IN port on the splitter.
        • Connect a second coax cable to the splitter and to CABLE IN at the back of the BlueCurve TV Player.
        • Connect a third coax cable to the splitter and the modem. Turn on the TV.
      • If you are only connecting the BlueCurve TV Player to its own cable outlet:
        • Connect one end of the coax cable to Cable In at the back of the BlueCurve TV Player and the other end into a coax cable outlet.
        • Turn on the TV.
    3. Connect the HDMI cable into HDMI Out to TV at the back of the BlueCurve TV Player and into the HDMI input on the TV. Make note of which HDMI port you selected on your TV.
    4. Connect the power supply into the back of the BlueCurve TV Player. Do not plug it into the electrical outlet.
    5. Pull the plastic tab out from the back of the BlueCurve TV remote.

Note: If you have more Shaw equipment to install, connect it now. Please wait until the next step before you plug the equipment into an electrical outlet.
