Setup Video

How It Works

Mohu TV is still under development for Android, iOS and Smart TVs. Please check gomohu.com/apps often for updates on platform compatibility.

What’s in the Box

Antenna

The AirWave Antenna is specifically designed to connect with the AirWave Power Bridge.

Power Bridge

The Power Bridge receives over-the-air TV signals from the Antenna and sends them to your streaming device.

Power Cable

Supplies power to the Power Bridge. Power AirWave with supplied power cable only.

Coaxial Cable

Connects the Antenna to the Power Bridge.

Ethernet Cable

Connects the Power Bridge to your router. Not required if connecting AirWave to your home network over Wi-Fi.

Set Up AirWave Components

1. Find the Right Location for Your AirWave

Antenna Placement Tips

Generally, the antenna performs best with the clearest path possible to broadcast towers. Ideal placement tends to be higher up, near windows, and away from metal objects.

Consider Your Wi-Fi Connection Speed

If you have a weak Wi-Fi signal, or if your Wi-Fi router uses only 5GHz, you may need to connect your AirWave Power Bridge directly to your router using the included ethernet cable.

If you have a strong Wi-Fi connection, it is more important to place your AirWave where the antenna will perform best than to be connected directly to your router.

2. Connect AirWave Power and Components

Power AirWave

Using the power cable supplied, plug the AirWave Power Bridge into a power outlet.

Connect Antenna

Connect your AirWave Antenna to the AirWave Power Bridge using the supplied coaxial cable. Please use only the included AirWave antenna and coaxial cable. Do not use other antennas or cables, as these may cause the device to malfunction.

Connect To Router (Optional)

If you need to use a wired internet connection instead of Wi-Fi, optionally connect your AirWave Power Bridge to your router using the Ethernet cable included.

Complete Setup Portal

Very Important: Your AirWave will not function properly without fully completing the Setup Portal steps.

The Setup Portal will configure a few basic settings, get your AirWave connected to your home network, and install any available software updates.

1. Select a Device to Use for Setup

You will need a Wi-Fi-enabled computer, tablet, or mobile device to complete the setup portal. During setup, your AirWave may need to download and install updates, which can take several minutes.

It is recommended that on the device you use to set up your AirWave, you adjust your screen saver or sleep settings so that the device’s screen does not turn off or fall asleep for a minimum of 15 minutes of inactivity.

2. Connect to AirWave’s Access Point

Once your AirWave is powered on, a new wireless connection will be available. This connection (wireless access point) will be named airwave-[serial].

From the device you’re using to set up your AirWave, connect to the AirWave access point just like you would connect to any other Wi-Fi network.

Note: while connected to the AirWave access point and completing the setup portal, you will be disconnected from the internet on that device.

3. Follow the Steps in the Setup Portal

After a few seconds, a window with the setup portal should open. If the portal does not open automatically, please open a browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer) on your device and go to gomohu.com/airwave-settings.

Troubleshooting Tip: If your device is not staying connected to the AirWave access point network (“airwave-[serial]”), it may be that it is automatically disconnecting because the access point does not connect your device to the internet. If this happens, first try forgetting the AirWave access point and reconnecting to it. If that doesn’t work, find the setting on your device that checks for internet connection when you connect to Wi-Fi networks, and temporarily disable it. This setting may be called “Check for Internet Service,” “Auto Network Switch,” or something similar. After you’ve completed the setup, it is recommended that you turn the option back on.

Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the initial AirWave device setup.

AirWave Setup - Name
AirWave Setup - Passcode
AirWave Setup Portal - Postal Code
AirWave Setup Portal - Network
AirWave Setup Portal - Updates
AirWave Setup Portal - Complete Setup

Note: if the device you’re using for setup falls asleep during updates, the setup portal may not reappear when you wake the device back up. If this happens, simply disconnect and reconnect to the airwave-[serial] network. The setup portal should then reappear.

4. Reconnect to Your Home Wi-Fi

When you have completed the setup you may need to reconnect the device you used during setup to your standard home Wi-Fi network.

Get Started With Mohu TV

1. Complete Initial Mohu TV App Setup

Open the Mohu TV app on your streaming device and follow the setup prompts.

Mohu TV Setup

You will need to complete a channel scan before content is available in the Mohu TV Guide.

2. Enjoy Mohu TV

Select the “Guide” menu option to view and access content.

Mohu TV Channel Guide

Mohu TV’s Guide gives you access to channels your antenna receives over-the-air, as well as a variety of free streaming channels.

My Channels

Use the “My Channels” menu option to quickly access your favorite content.

Changing Channels

To change the channel, use your streaming device’s “Back” button to return to the Guide where any new channel can be selected.

ClearPix Configurations

ClearPix is the technology that automatically detects the best internal antenna configuration for each channel.

During the channel scan AirWave checks multiple ClearPix configurations in order to determine the best signal for each individual channel. Since many factors such as physical obstructions and weather changes can affect antenna performance, however, you may at times want to try an alternate ClearPix configuration when your reception is subpar.

You can try another ClearPix setting when viewing a channel by clicking the alternate “ClearPix” button. This sets the signal for each channel individually. Wait a few seconds for the signal to change before deciding which ClearPix setting is best for that channel.
