How do I setup my SMARTenna+? (CM-3001HD CM3001HD)

 There is a video below to provide a quick look at setting up the CM-3001HD. There are more detailed instructions below.

  • Unpack your new CM-3001HD Smartenna+ and inventory the included accessories.
    • Smartenna+ Antenna
    • 6ft and 16ft Mini Coax Cables.
    • Power supply/Power inserter.
    • Quick Start Guide
  • Connect the power inserter and cables according to the included Quick Start Guide or click on the image below to watch the Installation Video.
  • The 'Steering' circuitry in the CM-3001HD will automatically begin the 'Search' or 'Optimization' setup upon applying power with the Power adaptor/Power inserter. The 'Search' takes several minutes so wait until the white light on the base of the antenna stops blinking, before you perform your channel scan on your TV.
  • In general, mounting the antenna higher is better than lower. You may find that moving the antenna will provide similar but different 'Search' results.
  • Mounting the antenna in a window can sometimes provide the best access to signals.
  • If you want to move the Smartenna+ to a different location, you’ll need to repeat the 'Search/Optimization' setup, to be fully enhanced for the new location. Even though this antenna adjusts for 7 'Virtual Locations', you might find that by moving the antenna location or orientation, and performing the 'Search' setup, the result could be better or worse than the original location.
  • To perform another signal 'Search/Optimization', press and hold the black button that is next to the light until the light begins to blink. Then release.
    • Or, just remove power from the power supply momentarily and it will start the 'Search/Optimization'.
  • While in the 'Search' mode, the white light on the CM3001HD will be blinking. This will complete after several minutes.
  • When connected properly, and the 'Search/Optimization' has completed, the white light will be ‘on’ steady. 
  • If you have a problem with a certain channel, you can change the ‘virtual position’ by pressing and releasing the black button at the base of the antenna.
  • There are 7 virtual positions to choose from. Press the black button 2 times to try ‘virtual position’ #2. Press the black button 3 times to try ‘virtual position’ #3. Etc.
  • Note; If you are trying to use this antenna with an older Analog TV that does not have a Digital HD TV Tuner, then you will need to use a 'Digital To Analog TV Signal Converter Box' "CM-7004".
