Just got a new android tv box from Home Arcade In A Box? Set up is simple, just follow these instructions!

Inside the packaging of your new tv box you will find the android tv box, power adapter, HDMI cord and a remote control. Plug in the power and HDMI cable. If you’re using ethernet (hard wiring from your modem to the box, plug that in too).

If you are using a mini keyboard, read this. Open the back of the mini keyboard and remove the USB receiver. Put the USB receiver into any of the USB ports on the side of the tv box. Switch the mini keyboard’s power to “on”.

Note for Zoomtak K3 tv boxes only, the Zoomtak K3 comes with an external infrared receiver that is optional to use. If you choose to place your K3 tv box in a drawer or behind a cupboard door, use the external infrared receiver. More information on this feature can be found in the user manual included in the package.
