Use the green round button to get the display to TIME. Press the red square button. A number between 30 and -30 will be displayed. 30 to – 15 should be good. Anything below -25 means you could be losing information. Moving the Smart display and the transmitter even just a small amount can make a big difference to radio reception.

Take a battery out of the transmitter, count to 10 and put it back in while watching the green light. This will flash rapidly a number of times before pausing and then continuing with its normal 4 second flash. You need to count the number of rapid flashes, this is the channel number.

On the display, press the green rectangular button to change to Day. press and hold the same button until Set and the channel number is displayed. This channel number should match the rapid flashes that you counted on the transmitter.
