I have just bought the Terk Leapfrog wireless transmitter. Please bear in mind that I am not good with electronics and the like. What I wanted to do is to eliminate the cable stretched over my floor from the cable outlet to the TV. How does one connect the transmitter to the cable outlet? I can figure out the receiver end, I just don't know what to do at the transmitter end. Please help!

Re: Terk wireless transmitter
Hi Sleopard, Wireless transmitters should allow broadcasts of a single source such as a VCR, DVD player, or cable boxes. They normally wouldn’t be able to transmit something like a cable signal to your television. One way this could work is if you connected a cable box right below your outlet and then connected the cable box to your transmitter. If your transmitter has a infrared extender you may be able to change channels by pointing your remote at the wireless receiver.

Older Transmitters and Receivers will not work with these new
electronics. There are no Security Code Switches inside the Door
Operators, Transmitters and Receivers.<br />
To Program Receiver <br />
Step 2-1 Locate the Learn Code Button and Radio Signal Indicator on the Power Head Receiver of your Door Operator.<br />
Step 2-2 Press a Transmitter Button once within 30 seconds.<br />
Step 2-3 Press and release the Learn Code Button<br />
• The Radio Signal Indicator will blink approximately 2 times per second.<br />
• The Radio Signal Indicator stays lit - SOLID.<br />
Step 2-4 Press the same Transmitter Button within 30 seconds.<br />
• Radio Signal Indicator will go out.<br />
NOTE: If a second Transmitter Code is not confirmed within 30 seconds or
if a different Transmitter Code is sent, the Radio Signal Indicator
will blink approximately 4 times per second, then programming will
stop. If programming stops, repeat Steps 2-2 through 2-4.<br />
Step 2-5 Repeat Steps 2-2 through Step 2-4 for each Transmitter, Wireless Keypad or other access device to be learned.<br />
NOTE: A maximum of 7 Transmitter, Wireless Keypad and other access
device Codes can be stored into Receiver Memory at one time. If a
Transmitter becomes lost or if you want to delete a Transmitter,
Wireless Keypad or other access device, proceed to ERASING ALL RECEIVER
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Multi-Button Transmitters</span><br />
NOTE: Only ONE button of a Multi-Button Transmitter can be programmed
into a single Receiver. The other buttons are to control other Door
NOTE: If you are replacing a lost or stolen Transmitter:(1) Erase ALL
Transmitter Codes from the Receiver memory. (2) Reprogram the Receiver
with the remaining Transmitters Codes.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">Erasing All Receiver Memory</span><br />
Step 4-1 Press and HOLD the Learn Code Button for 10 seconds or until Radio Signal Indicator goes out.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;">ALL Transmitter Codes are erased from Receiver memory.</span><br style="font-weight: bold;" />
Step 4-2 Reprogram the Receiver with the remaining Transmitter Codes (Repeat Steps 2-2 through 2-4).<br />

• Slide Battery Cover off of Transmitter back.<br />
• Replace with new batteries.<br />
• Slide Battery Cover back on.<br />
<span style="font-weight: bold;"><br />
Step 5-2 Visor Clip installation</span><br />

Those aren't transistors in the transmitter they are jumpers. Match the jumper settings with your dip switch settings in the receiver. You can move the jumpers in the transmitter using a small needle nose pliers. An open jumper in the transmitter equals an OFF setting on the dip switch in the receiver.
Sadly, the ML-L3 does not work with the D700. You need to buy the much clumsier and much more expensive ML-3, which has a wireless receiver you hook to the camera and a wireless transmitter you use to fire the camera.
Possibly your new equipment doesn't use IR (infared) as the media for the remote. I have used the pyramid and different versions of it for DirecTV/Dish and most everything else for years with no major problems. occasionally a unit will fail, but that happens. If the red light blinks on the "transmitter" (no antenna) it should indicate that it is receiving IR from the remote. The "receiver" (antenna) has to be oriented correctly in front of the unit to be controlled. I put the receiver no closer than 5' to the unit. The signal coming out is a cone shape and it's easier to aim the further away you are. As a test, you could try using the remote to control a stereo or something else, even a fan. If the remote has a led or a dark red plastic cap on the front end, it should be an IR unit.
