Nintendo 64 Monaural (Mono) Hookup

Using the "Y" adaptor is optional. You may leave the white audio cable disconnected. If you leave the white connector disabled, set your games' sound options to "Mono" or "Monaural" to prevent the loss of some game sounds

Nintendo does not sell "Y" adaptors, however it can be purchased at most stores that carry Nintendo products.

Important Note:
We highly recommend you review the following precautions before you set up and operate your Nintendo system:

Installation Steps:

  1. Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, 75S(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
  2. Remove the existing cable wire from TV's VHF IN.
  3. Connect the short, thick wire (labeled TV) of RF Switch to VHF IN.
  4. Connect existing cable wire to the silver post labeled ANT on RF switch.
  5. Plug the RF Modulator into the Multi-Out connector on the back of the system
  6. Connect the thin wire (labeled Control Deck) of the RF Switch to the RF Modulator (labeled RF Out).
  7. Set the switch labeled 3/4 of the RF Modulator to either 3 or 4 and then match the channel of the TV to 3 or 4.

Note: The RF Modulator does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck to your TV or VCR using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

After the system is connected to the TV:

  1. Insert Game Pak fully into the Control Deck.
  2. Plug controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the left-most port for one-player games.
  3. Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
  4. Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
  5. Turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.)
  6. The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You're ready to play!
