The Bolt 3000 (original) and 3000 XT system is able to use 20 MHz channel widths for wireless video transmission, allowing the use of more wireless systems in a single location, or a more robust link in challenging RF conditions.
All other 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation Bolt systems are limited to using 40 MHz channel widths.
NOTE: Before switching to 20 MHz channel width, make sure that a compatible video format is being used as described in this article.
To change between the default 40 MHz and 20 MHz channel widths, you can either use the Bolt Manager software program (current and older Bolt firmware) or the built-in display on the Bolt 3000 RX / 3000 XT RX (more recent Bolt firmware).
See this article for the current download of the Bolt Manager software.
To change between modes using Bolt Manager:
1. Connect the Bolt 3000 TX a computer running Bolt Manager.
2. Select Settings > Select Frequencies, and choose 20 MHz or 40 MHz.
3. If you wish to limit the Bolt 3000 system to specific channels, they may be selected from the list.
4. Once the setting is applied through Bolt Manager and the dialog box appears, power cycle the TX unit.
To change between modes using the menu on the Bolt 3000 RX / 3000 XT RX
1. Make sure that the Bolt 3000 TX is powered on and has established a link with the 3000 RX.
2. Press the black Menu button on the RX, select Channel Selection > Bandwidth, and highlight 20 MHz or 40 MHz.
3. Use the Menu button on the RX to select the channel width, and the setting will be applied on the TX; the TX will automatically re-establish the wireless link with the RX.
3. If 20 MHz modes were selected, the channel selection list on the RX will now show the 20 MHz channel width options instead of the default 40 MHz options.
When the Bolt 3000 RX units that are paired to the TX are turned on and establish a wireless link, they should synchronize their channel setting and selected channel list with the Bolt 3000 TX.
