Operation Tips

1) After powering on your InfoView and before dialing, you should check

your local image on the TV screen and wait about a minute before

calling to ensure your unit is warmed up.

2) It does not matter who called whom, both sides will have to decide

which unit will send video and which videophone will receive and then

follow the procedure above.

3) When connecting between different brands, you will likely not be able

to use all the feature options available if you were connecting between

the same brands.

4) If your connection attempts are failing, be sure to remove any other

devices (answering and fax machines) that may be daisy-chained or

attached to the phone line. PC modems can also effect the connection

even if they are turned off and not in use.

5) Generally, the auto-answer feature will only work when you have the

same brand videophones on both ends of the call.

6) Be patient, it make take a couple of tries to get the different

videophones to complete the "handshake."
