Do I have to connect my headphones to the streamer every time I want to watch television with them?

Previously paired bluetooth devices will re-connect to the TV streamer automatically, once both devices are turned back on. When reconnecting, it is important to remember to turn on the streamer first, before turning on the paired device (such as the headphones) so that it can accept the incoming bluetooth connection from the devices.

Plugging the USB power cable from the streamer directly into an available USB socket will allow the streamer to turn on automatically when you turn on your TV.
