HOW IT ALL WORKS The Boxing Gloves send out infrared signals. The Console senses these signals and the way you throw a punch. To get the best results from your Play TV Boxing, refer to the back of the package for game set up.
HELPFUL HINTS Be sure the Console is placed flat on the floor with the receiver pointing to the player without any obstructions in between. The use of TV and Video remote controls may interfere with game play.

SETTING UP BATTERY INSTALLATION On the bottom of the main unit, open the battery compartment and insert four (4) AA size batteries in the main console and two (2) AAA size batteries in each glove as indicated inside the compartment (alkaline batteries recommended). Replace the battery compartment door. NOTE: Batteries in the Console should give you about 10 hours of game play (if alkaline batteries are used). The game will not operate normally when the batteries begin to run low. The screen may be blurred and resetting the game may not work. Be sure to install fresh batteries. ADULT SUPERVISION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN INSTALLING BATTERIES.
TV CONNECTION NOTE: To connect Play TV Boxing directly to a TV, the TV must be equipped with audio and video input jacks. They are commonly found on the front of the TV near the contrast, color, and picture adjustment controls or on the rear of the TV near the antenna and cable/satellite jacks. If your TV has audio and video input jacks, insert the yellow video plug from the Console into the video-in (Yellow) jack on your TV and the white audio plug into the left audio-in (White) jack. Then set the TV to the appropriate video input mode (see your TV's operating manual for details). Please Note: If your TV is stereo, you can use a 1 into 2 audio cable (available at your local electronics store) to allow you to split the audio signal into red and white audio-in jacks. If your TV does not have audio and video input jacks, you may connect Play TV Boxing through a VCR connected to your TV.
CONNECTING TO A VCR To connect Play TV Boxing to your VCR, insert the yellow video plug from the Console into the video-in (Yellow) jack on your VCR and the white audio plug into the left audio-in (White) jack. Then set the VCR to the appropriate video input mode (see your VCR's operating manual for details). Please Note: If your VCR is stereo, you can use a 1 into 2 audio cable (available at your local electronics store) to allow you to split the audio signal into red and white audio-in jacks. ADULT SUPERVISION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN CONNECTING CABLES TO A TV AND VCR.

TRAINING EXERCISES Each training exercise will use the following Punch Icons:
HEAVY BAG This develops your memory as well as your use of all movements. I’ll show you a series of moves on the Heavy Bag by highlighting the Punch Icons. You have to repeat the exact series without doing the wrong move. We’ll keep this exercise going until you do make a wrong move. Your score will be determined by how many correct moves you made all together. Gain one point for each successful sequence.
PADS This one works on your moves plus your speed and reaction time. I'm going to hold up a Punch Pad, and you have to hit it using whatever move the Punch Icon tells you to. You have to make your move quick before I lower my hand, so you better think fast. As time goes by, I'm going to hold up the pads faster and faster, but don't hit too hard. My hands ain't what they used to be. Your score will be determined by how many correct moves you make before time runs out. One point for each successful punch.
COMBO This Training Exercise works on your speed and use of different punches and blocks. You get one round to knock down all the targets as quickly as possible, in numeric order. Remember time is of the essence here, and you must knock down the targets using the different punches and blocks from that Punch Icon layout I showed you. If you miss one, all of the targets will reset, and you'll have to start again. Your score is based on the amount of sequences you complete in the time limit. Seven points for each successful sequence.
MEDICINE BALL This classic exercise works your timing as well as your moves.
