Thanks for buying the Nuheara IQStream TV Personal Audio Streamer. When first unboxing, check you have all the items in the box. You will have six items, the IQStream TV, a USB power cable, an optical audio cable with adapter, the 3.5 auxiliary cable, and the RCA adapter cable. If you’re missing any of these items, please contact us at [email protected]
Connecting to power. Take the USB cable, and plug it into the USB port on the IQ stream. Take the other end of the USB cable, and plug it into your TV. The USB ports could be located on the left, the bottom, the right, or the back of the TV. If your TV does not have any USB ports, please use a readily available USB wall charger.
Keep the IQStream close to your TV, as you will need to connect other cables for audio. If connected to the TV, your IQStream will be powered on when the TV is on. When powered up for the first time, the light on the front will flash white.
Adding the IQStream to your audio system. The IQStream TV has been designed with audio in and out connections for audio pass through. It can therefore be used alongside existing TV audio equipment, including sound bars and component audio systems. An external audio connection is required so others can watch TV with you.
Audio will flow out of your TV and into the IQStream, then out of your IQStream and then into your sound bar, creating a full flow of audio for you and for others to enjoy. For a digital connection, use the optical cable provided. It has the thicker ends with small gold tips.
Before plugging this cable in, remove the protective caps from each end. Take the green end of the optical cable and plug it into the in port on the back of your IQStream. Take the other end and plug it into the digital optical audio outport on your TV. All TVs are different, so take time to locate the optical port on the back of your TV.
These ports are commonly made with small doors on them. Take care to align the shape of the connector, and insert it into the optical port until you feel a firm click. The sound byte you purchase will come with the digital optical cable. Find this and attach the digital optical adapter provided with your IQStream TV to this optical cable.
Take care to remove the protective caps from both cables. Take the end with the adapter and plug it into the “out” port on the IQStream TV. Take the other end of the cable and connect it to the digital optical “in” port on your sound bar. This completes your setup. You can follow the same procedure for connecting to bigger audio component systems.
Connecting to the app. Once the IQStream is connected, you may connect your IQbuds to your phone or tablet and open the Nuheara app. Your IQ Buds Boost will require the latest firmware for use with IQStream TV. Ensure this is installed on your IQbuds before you begin. You can download the installer from the address on the screen.
When your IQbuds² MAX are connected to your phone, you will receive a pop up message requesting you to tap your phone on the IQStream. Hold your phone or tablet on the IQStream until you see connected. If you didn’t see this pop up, you may need to update your app. Go to the app store your phone or tablet to do this.
Choose a name for your IQStream. Whatever room you’re in is a great name to use. Your IQStream is now ready for use. You will land on a screen that says you are streaming audio from your phone. Below this will be a list of your connected devices, and you will see the IQStream with the name you just gave it.
If it doesn’t show up, please give it a few seconds. Tap the IQ stream you just named and allow it a few seconds to connect. You will then see a screen where you can control your own TV volume through your IQbuds² MAX. You can turn the volume up or down or mute it.
It’s important to note that this will only change the volume of what you’re hearing through your IQbuds, not the external TV itself. When you want to listen to music or media from your phone or take phone calls, open the stream source list again and select the name of your phone.
