System
ORDER YOUR BELL EXPRESSVU PROGRAMMING
This procedure notifies the Bell ExpressVu Customer Service Call Centre that your
system is on-line and installed. You need to have your services activated before you
can start enjoying your desired programming. Prior to authorization, you will see the
Bell ExpressVu XPRS Preview Channel and perhaps an unscrambled program channel
such as CBC. You must authorize your services when you first install your Bell
ExpressVu system, and whenever you request to add or remove services.
All you need to do is call the Bell ExpressVu Customer Service Call Centre at 1-888SKY-DISH and notify them that your system has been installed and you would like to
begin receiving programming. The Service Representative will explain the available
program packages and à la carte services and take you through the authorization
procedure and software download steps. When the services are authorized, you should
see channels other than the Bell ExpressVu Preview Channel. You will need to give the
Bell ExpressVu Customer Service Representative some information. To get this
information, do the following:
1. Make sure the dish is aimed for the maximum signal strength, and that the
information has been transmitted via the satellite signal. See the Installation
Instructions for these procedures.
2. Display the Important System Information menu, shown below. To do this, turn
the satellite receiver off using the remote control Power Button, then press the
Info button on the remote control. Or, if the receiver is on, press the System
Info button to display the Important System Information menu.
The Bell ExpressVu Customer Service Representative will authorize your programming
using the satellite signal.

ABOUT THE DBS DIGITAL REMOTE CONTROL
The Digital Remote Control is designed for use with applicable DBS receivers.
It provides easy access to all the features of the Bell ExpressVu system, including
changing channels and using menus. This remote can also control other electronic
devices to allow easier, more convenient use of your total home entertainment system.
These instructions describe all of the buttons on the remote, their capabilities, and the
advanced functions of this particular remote control.
You can use the Digital Remote to control not only the satellite receiver but also a TV,
VCR, cable TV box, or an audio amplifier. You can program this remote to control a
maximum of three other electronic devices.

Using The System
Using The Remote Control
DIGITAL REMOTE TYPE: UHF OR IR
There are two types of Digital Remote Controls: Infrared (IR) or Ultra-high Frequency
(UHF). The UHF remote has the UHF symbol on it, as in the picture below. The IR
remote does not have the UHF symbol. The back of the IR remote has the words
“INFRARED REMOTE” on it.
ABOUT THE UHF REMOTE
The UHF remote sends ultra-high frequency radio signals to a UHF
antenna connected to the back panel of UHF compatible receivers.
With UHF compatible receivers, the signals will travel through solid
objects and allow you to use the remote to control the receiver from another room, or
even from another floor in the building, to a possible maximum of 30 metres away from
the receiver. To check if your receiver is UHF compatible, look for the UHF Remote
Antenna connection on the back panel of the receiver.
The UHF antenna must be attached to the receiver back panel UHF Remote Antenna
connection in order to use the UHF remote control. Because the UHF remote operates
from such a long range, the receiver may respond to signals from other nearby remote
controls. To handle this problem, see the Changing the Digital Remote Address
procedure on page 3-9. Because the UHF antenna is sensitive, it may pick up other UHF
signals, interfering with the operation of the remote. Try Changing the Data Base
Remote Address first. If this does not work, see Installing an Attenuator on page 3-11.
ABOUT THE IR REMOTE
The IR remote uses infrared light to control the receiver and has a maximum range of
40 feet. You must point the remote directly at the receiver, with no solid objects in the
way.
Do NOT change the address of an IR Remote. The IR Remote Control is programmed
to control the satellite receiver when packaged. Unless you have two receivers in the
same room, you should not need to change the address. If you have two receivers in the
same room and the remote is controlling both, perform the Changing the Digital Remote
Address procedure on page 3-9 to change the address of the remote to specifically
control one satellite receiver.

User Guide
INSTALLING BATTERIES
The remote control uses AAA batteries. When you
replace old batteries, you should replace all of the
batteries. Use batteries of the same grade and do
not mix batteries of different grades. Alkaline
batteries provide longer battery life.
1. Push down on the slot in the battery case cover
(on the back of the remote control) and slide off
the cover.
2. Insert the new batteries, making sure to match
the plus (+) ends with the plus markings on the
battery case.
3. Replace the battery cover by sliding the cover
back up into place.

the mode light flashes once quickly (for zero), then once, three times, and six times.
Remember that the AUX mode has a four digit code.
INSTALLING AN ATTENUATOR
Other UHF signals may block signals from the UHF remote control to the receiver.
To prevent such interference, you can install a 10 dB attenuator. This will reduce the
sensitivity of the receiver to other UHF signals but also substantially reduce the
operating range of the UHF remote control.
1. Remove the UHF antenna from the UHF Remote Antenna connection on the
receiver back panel.
2. Attach a 10 dB attenuator to the UHF Remote Antenna connection.
3. Attach the UHF Antenna to the attenuator.

ORDERING PAY PER VIEW PROGRAMS
You are responsible for all pay per view purchases. To prevent
unauthorized purchases please ensure the receiver is locked, see Locking
The Receiver on page 3-40. The receiver must be connected to an active
telephone line. (Refer to page 3-48 for how to perform Telephone
Connection Diagnostic Test). If you use more than one receiver, each
receiver must be connected to an active telephone connection. If you want
to watch a pay per view program on TVs connected to different receivers,
you must order the program for each receiver.
BELL EXPRESSVU PPV PURCHASE INFORMATION
When you purchase Bell ExpressVu PPV programs, the receiver stores the information
in its memory. The receiver dials into the Bell ExpressVu Customer Service Call Centre
periodically to send the purchase information. These phone calls are made in the middle
of the night, at irregular times, and are toll-free (no cost to you). Should you need to use
your telephone when the receiver is calling Bell ExpressVu, the Bell ExpressVu call will
be automatically terminated.
If you disconnect the receiver from your phone line, you will not be able to
purchase Bell ExpressVu PPV programs using the receiver.
If your Bell ExpressVu receiver is not continually plugged into the phone line, it may
not be able to clear the PPV purchases it has stored in its memory. This will prevent you
from purchasing additional PPV events. The receiver will limit both the number and the
total dollar amount of purchases.
The following messages indicate that the receiver needs to call Bell ExpressVu:
Your purchase of this event is in the process of being authorized.
Your receiver MUST BE connected to a phone line. Please try again later.
Press the “Up” or “Down” arrow button to change channels.
The credit limit on your smart card has been exceeded. An authorization
from the Bell ExpressVu Customer Service Call Centre is required. Your
receiver must be connected to a phone line. The call and authorization
could take several minutes.
If you get one of these messages, check to ensure that your phone line is properly
connected to the receiver as per the instructions in the Installation Guide. You should
perform a phone line test to ensure the connection is working properly (see page 3-48).
Page 3-26
Using The System
Ordering Pay Per View Programs
Once you have verified your phone connection, powering the receiver off and on with
the remote control will expedite the receiver’s phone call to Bell ExpressVu.
Note: If you order a large number of PPV items in a short period of time (a single day
for example), or if your receiver was not properly connected to the telephone line, it may
take up to 48 hours for the call to go through to allow you to make additional purchases.

USING FAVOURITES LISTS
Favourites Lists are lists of your favourite channels. You can create and modify the lists
yourself, adding and removing channels as you wish. When you make a Favourites List
active, the Program Guide displays only the channels in that list.
Note: The ALL CHAN Favourites List contains all the channels. You cannot make
any changes to this list. If you want the Program Guide to display all the available
channels, set ALL CHAN as the active Favourites List.
• You can tune the receiver to a channel whether or not that channel is on the active
Favourites List by entering the channel number using the remote control number
pad buttons.
• If you choose a program using Theme Categories, the receiver tunes to the
channel for that program whether or not that channel is on the active Favourites List.
However, if the program has not started yet, the receiver displays the Create an
Event Timer menu. See Setting and Using Event Timers on page 3-48.
You can create up to four different Favourites Lists, each including up to 30 channels.
Each Favourites List is indicated by a slightly different colour in the Program Guide.
You can give each list a unique name, such as Mom, Dad, Junior, etc. When you first
get the receiver, the four lists are named LIST 1, LIST 2, LIST 3, and LIST 4.
The lists are empty until you add channels to them.

SETTING AND USING SECURITY LOCKS
You can use either or both of two types of security, or you may choose not to use either.
• You can lock the receiver so that only those who know the password can access
locked features.
• You can set up a Personal Identification Number (PIN) at the Bell ExpressVu
Customer Service Call Centre to keep unauthorized people from calling and ordering
services (see Personal Identification Number on page 3-42.
You can set locks to keep anyone who does not know the password from:
• Watching one or more specified channels
• Watching programs with certain rating or extended rating (content) codes
• Buying added cost services such as pay per view
• Using the receiver front panel Control Buttons.
HOW TO SET LOCKS: A TWO STEP PROCESS
1. Create the channel or program locks (you do not need to do this if you wish to lock
only pay per view services). Also, lock the receiver front panel Control Buttons,
if desired.
2. Lock the receiver. This puts the locks you have created into effect, and also locks the
purchase of added cost services.
Once the receiver is locked, anyone who wants to access locked items must enter
the password.
First you set the locks; then you lock the receiver. You must lock the
receiver in order to put any locks into effect. If you unlock the receiver,
leave the locks unchanged, and then lock the receiver again, the same
locks will be in effect as before.
If you want to lock only pay per view services, you do not need to
create any special locks. Just lock the receiver, to automatically lock
pay per view.
Page 3-34
Using The System
Setting and Using Security Locks
WHEN YOU HAVE LOCKED THE RECEIVER:
• If you try to access a locked program or channel, the receiver displays a message
prompting you to enter the password. You must also enter the password to access the
Parental and System Locks menu.
The receiver allows you three tries to enter the correct password. If you fail to do
this, the receiver does not allow more tries for several minutes.
• If you enter the correct password, you can access the locked item or the Parental
and System Locks menu.
• If you exit a locked item or the Parental and System Locks menu, you must
re-enter the password to access the item or the menu again.
If you forget your password, you will need to speak with a Customer
Service Representative. You may need to provide the following
information: (1) your name; (2) your address; (3) your telephone number;
(4) the receiver serial identification number; and, (5) your Personal
Identification Number (PIN), if used.

CREATING OR MODIFYING RATING CODE LOCKS
Do the following to set program locks based on rating or extended rating (content)
codes. Then, when the receiver is locked, only someone who knows the password can
watch these programs. See the Glossary on page 4-9 for a definition of each of the
rating codes.
Parents beware, the rating and extended rating (content) codes that the receiver uses for
program locks reflect the codes that the original program providers assigned to the
programs. The actual content of the programs may differ from their assigned ratings.
No rating system can guarantee that all objectionable material is screened out. Like all
other security locks, these locks are only in effect when the receiver is locked. Also,
television program ratings differ from movie ratings.

POWER OFF AND EVENT TIMERS
If the receiver is OFF at the time an Auto-Tune or VCR Event Timer is scheduled to
operate, the receiver will turn ON. Once the event has ended, the receiver will turn OFF,
(unless you pressed any remote control or receiver front panel buttons during the time
that the timer was active).
If the receiver is OFF at the time a Reminder Event Timer is scheduled to operate, the
timer will turn the receiver ON and tune it to the channel you last watched. The receiver
will then display the reminder menu. You will have a few seconds to respond. If you do
not respond to the reminder menu, your receiver will turn OFF.
SETTING UP THE RECEIVER AND VCR TO USE A VCR EVENT TIMER
To use VCR event timers, you must set up the receiver so it can recognize and control
your VCR. First, the remote to control the VCR (see "Programming the Remote to
Control Devices" on page 3-10). Doing this will determine the correct code.
If the receiver does not control your VCR model, use an Auto-Tune Event Timer to tune
the receiver to the channel for the program you want to record. Use the timers built into
the VCR to start and stop the VCR at the required times.
The receiver uses an IR signal to control the VCR. This signal is much stronger than the
signal the remote uses, so it can bounce off walls or other objects on its way to the VCR.
This works in most home setups. However, shelves or smoked glass doors between the
receiver and the VCR may block the signal. Also, if the signal must cross a very large
room, or bounce off curtains, it may not be strong enough to control the VCR. Make
sure that nothing blocks the signal, and that the signal can bounce off relatively nearby,
light-coloured, smooth surfaces.

USING DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT
The model 4700 receiver supports the output of digital audio through the Dolby*
Digital jack on the back of the receiver. To use this feature, you must have a compatible
amplifier/decoder that supports one of the following features:
• Dolby Digital (AC-3) digital input
• Linear PCM digital input
Many amplifiers/decoders with Dolby Digital input support Linear PCM audio input
through the same input jack.
The output of the Dolby Digital jack will depend on the availability of a particular
audio track on the program you are currently watching. Only selected programs will
be available with a 6-channel Dolby Digital sound track. Other programs may
have surround sound features which are carried by the Linear PCM digital audio input.
Note: Surround sound is only available if provided by the broadcaster of the particular
program.
The output of the Dolby Digital jack is as follows:
• If the program is being transmitted with a Dolby Digital soundtrack
then either the Dolby Digital soundtrack or the Linear PCM soundtrack is
available on the Dolby Digital jack
• If the program does not have a Dolby Digital soundtrack then only the
Linear PCM soundtrack is available.
The exact output of the Dolby Digital is configurable as follows:
1. From the Main menu, select the System Setup option.
2. From the System Setup menu, select the Dolby Digital option.
3. From the Dolby Digital menu, choose one of the following options:
