Positioning the Atari VCS in your Home
Place your Atari VCS on a flat, stable surface that is well-ventilated, relatively cool, and away from direct heat sources. Don't put other objects on top of the Atari VCS. Do not place the Atari VCS on top of something that generates heat. And avoid putting anything directly behind the vents at the back corners of the Atari VCS.
The Atari VCS is designed to be displayed openly and device performance will also benefit from placement in a well-ventilated location.
Connecting to your TV
The Atari VCS video computer system includes one HDMI cable. Use this cable to connect the system to an HDMI-compatible TV, HDTV, or monitor.
1.- Find the HDMI port on the back of the console. The HDMI port is labeled.
2.- Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on the Atari VCS.
3.- Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input on your TV.
4.- The HDMI cable carries both audio and video to your TV.
Connecting to a Network
The Atari VCS requires an Internet connection. You can connect your Atari VCS to your wireless router or modem. If you want to connect wirelessly, skip this step. You will be prompted to connect to a wireless network later.
For a wired connection, use an Ethernet cable to connect your router or modem to the ethernet port in the back of the Atari VCS. The ethernet port is labeled.
Plugging in Power
The Atari VCS requires power to operate. To connect the Atari VCS to power:
1.- Plug the power cord into the power supply.
2.- Plug the power supply into the AC power port at the right rear of the Atari VCS. The AC Power Port is labeled.
3.- Plug the other end of the power cord into an electrical outlet.
Turning on the Power
Press and hold the power button on the rear left of the Atari VCS until the Atari Fuji logo on the right of the front panel is illuminated.
Setting Up Your Atari VCS
Once you power on your Atari VCS, on-screen instructions will walk you through connecting a controller, connecting to a wireless network, and creating an account.
