If you have active Fiber TV service, you'll be provided with a set of equipment. For each TV included in the service, you'll receive one Google Fiber TV Box (GFHD100) is connected to each of your TVs. Its dimensions are 6.8" W x 5.3" D x 1.3" H.
Each TV Box is connected by coaxial cable to a port in a nearby wall, which connects it to the Storage Box. In rare cases, TV Boxes can be connected by Ethernet cable based on factors considered by the Installation Specialist at installation time.
Do not connect your TV to the coaxial port on the TV Box. That type of connection could damage your TV.
The hdmi in port is not supported at this time. The av out port provides analog video connections using a special break-out cable. Your Installation Specialist can provide this cable, if needed.
When it is properly connected and powered on, the small round LED on the front of the TV Box lights up solid blue.
Although the front connector looks just like a headphone jack, it is an IR extender port. If you have an IR extender, you can connect it using that port. An IR extender uses a cable to extend the IR signal around corners, behind entertainment centers, or any situation where line-of-sight between your devices and your remote control is not possible.
The USB port on the front of the TV Box is not currently supported but might be enabled to support new features in a future release.
Each TV Box is also a Wi-Fi access point, which extends your wireless network to more areas of your home. Learn more about configuring your Wi-Fi network.
In addition, if your TV Box is connected to a coaxial wall jack, you can use its Ethernet port to directly wire a computer or other device to your network. Connecting directly to the TV Box provides the fastest possible speeds—up to 100 Mbps (higher speeds may be available by connecting directly to the Network Box).
