SAFETY INFORMATION (cont.)
Safety aspects of connections
Regulatory information
Full details of the rear panel are on page 6.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to modify your set-top without written
authorization from the manufacturer. Unauthorized modification
could void your authority to operate your set-top.
Connecting
Do not connect your set-top (or any other equipment such as a TV or VCR)
to the power supply until you have properly connected all the other cables.
Your set-top is designed for use only with the supplied power supply unit.
On the power supply unit there is a label that specifies the correct AC
power supply input for it. Do not connect the power supply unit to any
supply other than this.
Always connect the 12 volt DC cord from the power supply unit to your
set-top before you insert the AC power cord from the power supply unit
into the wall AC outlet.
Disconnecting
To disconnect power from your set-top, always detach the power supply
unit from the wall AC outlet (rather than remove the 12 volt cord from your
set-top).
NOTE
Your set-top has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. Your set-top generates, uses
and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If your set-top does cause harmful interference to
radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning your
set-top off and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures.
Therefore you must install your set-top near to the wall AC outlet, which
should be easily accessible.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
If you are in any doubt about the power supply cord, its plug or its
connection, consult a qualified electrician.
• Connect your set-top to an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Increase the separation between your set-top and the receiver.
• Consult your dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The CABLE IN connector is designed
for connection to a cable network only.
You must not connect any other
equipment, such as a VCR, to this
input.

CONNECTING THE EQUIPMENT
Possible setups
In order for you to view programs broadcast in high-definition, your set-top must be connected to a suitable
HDTV or computer monitor. Your set-top is also compatible with standard-definition TVs and VCRs.
Your equipment should have been connected up by your installer. However, if you need to disconnect and
reconnect your equipment, read pages 8 and 9.
There are two typical connection setups for an HDTV, VCR, DVD player, and home theater receiver.
You can take advantage of the digital audio output from your set-top by connecting a suitable cable between
your home theater receiver and the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT connector (as shown in the diagrams). How you set
up your equipment may depend on your home theater receiver. For example, the optical audio input may be
associated with a particular video input. Consult your home theater user guide for further details.
The setups shown on pages 8 and 9 make efficient use of the connectors on your set-top. However, depending
on your other equipment and the connectors on it, the person who installed your system may have chosen to
connect things differently.
Recording programs
Both setups allow stereo recording and play-back of video tapes. You hear stereo sound from the home
theater’s loudspeakers. However, the RNG200N has an internal hard disk for recording programs. You can also
attach an external hard disk to the rear-panel eSATA port.
Both set-tops can also be used in a home network with separate network-attached storage, so that recordings
can be stored centrally and viewed in at various locations in your home. The equipment in a home network
must be installed by a qualified installer.
RF connections
Although the RF cables (shown by dashed lines in the diagrams) are not absolutely necessary, we recommend
that you connect them as a back-up. If you use the RF cables, you must tune your TV (and VCR) to your
set-top’s VHF output channel (3 or 4: consult your cable service-provider to find which channel it is for your
location). Consult the manuals supplied with your TV and VCR for information on how to tune.
WARNINGS
Do not connect your set-top (or
any other equipment such as a TV
or VCR) to the power supply until
you have properly connected all the
other cables.
Disconnect your set-top’s power
supply unit from the AC power
supply before you disconnect any
other equipment from its rear
panel.
The only way to disconnect your
set-top from the AC power supply
is to remove the power supply unit
from the wall AC outlet (or switch
the wall AC outlet switch, if present,
to its OFF position). Your set-top
must therefore be installed near to
the wall AC outlet,
The cable input is designed for
connection to a cable network only.
You must not connect any other
equipment, such as a VCR, to this
input.
Any cable connected to DIGITAL
AUDIO OUT (the upper RCA jack)
must be 75 ohm coaxial cable, not
regular audio cable.
NOTE
Copy protection via an HDMI secure link
The HDMI link between your set-top and your HDTV should be a secure link. When your set-top is
attached via an HDMI cable to an HDCP-compliant (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) HDTV,
the HDTV and set-top negotiate a secure link, which allows your set-top to transmit full resolution video
(picture) to your HDTV.
Not all HDTVs support HDCP. If your set-top is connected to an HDTV that does not support it, the
following may be displayed:
Your HDTV does not support HDCP.
Please use the YPbPr component connection to watch TV.
The HDMI output is then disabled, so no picture is transmitted from this connector. In that case, use the
component video connectors to connect up (see Setup B).

OPERATING YOUR SET-TOP (cont.)
Using DVR (digital video recorder) functions
If you have an RNG200N set-top, it has an internal hard disk to provide DVR functions. Both the RNG150N and
the RNG200N have a rear-panel eSATA port to which you can connect an external hard disk (see further detail
below). This can give DVR functionality to the RGN150N and increase the recording capacity for the RNG200N.
Your set-top can also be connected into a home network. This allows several set-tops to record to a separate
hard disk called a network attached storage (NAS) unit. In this way, recordings can shared around your home
(Multiroom). You need a qualified installer to set up such a home network for you and you should then consult
the information supplied with your NAS unit.
You can use the DVR functionality to record and play back television programs, giving you much more control
of your viewing experience. For example, you can pause live television and resume viewing from the point at
which you left off. You can record many more hours than you can by using a VCR or DVD recorder. There is a
red light on your set-top’s front panel to show when recording is taking place.
With your set-top you can:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
pause live TV;
instantly replay live TV;
fast-forward up to the point of live TV;
watch a scene in slow motion;
rewind through a program you have been watching;
record high definition digital pictures (as well as the regular standard definition);
record one program while watching another;
record two programs while watching a previously recorded program;
schedule your set-top to record a program or a whole series;
fully manage your stored recordings;
back up your digital recordings to a VCR or DVD recorder;
retain full control over any parental viewing restrictions you have set up.
NOTES
Exact DVR functionality depends
on your on-screen program guide.
For more details, consult the
information supplied by your cable
service-provider.
Do not confuse recording to a
hard disk with recording to a
separate VCR or DVD recorder, as
mentioned on page 7.
The DVR functions will not work
if an RNG200N set-top becomes
overheated. The internal hard
disk will be temporarily disabled.
Refer to the set-top’s ventilation
requirements on page 4.
You control your set-top’s DVR functions using your remote control; consult the information supplied by your
cable service-provider for more details. Also read the operating instructions that are supplied with your remote
control.
Using an external hard disk
Your cable service-provider may enable a feature that allows an external hard disk to work with your set-top. If
this is the case, most major brands of serial ATA hard disk, connected to the eSATA port, are supported.
You must not connect an external hard disk to the USB port.
If you use an external hard disk with an RNG200N set-top, it gives extra recording capacity, but you cannot
choose which disk (internal or external) your set-top will record onto. It automatically chooses the one with
more empty space. The recordings on the external hard disk are uniquely linked to the set-top on which they
were made, so you cannot play them back or delete them with a different set-top.
Do you want to format the
external hard drive?
YES
NO
Connecting an external hard disk
1. Stop any recording you are making to your set-top’s internal hard disk (applicable to RNG200N).
2. Turn off your set-top with the POWER button, then wait 60 seconds before disconnecting its power
supply unit from the wall AC outlet. (You must not “hot plug” an external hard disk.)
3. Connect the external hard disk, using an appropriate cable, to the eSATA connector on your set-top.
4. Apply power to the external hard disk.
Formatting the Hard
drive. Please
wait...
5. Reconnect your set-top’s power supply unit to the wall AC outlet and turn it on with the POWER button.
If the external disk needs formatting, your set-top informs you by displaying a pop-up dialog box on your
TV screen (see right).
6. Use the arrow and OK/Select buttons to select YES, and the formatting begins.

OPERATING YOUR SET-TOP (cont.)
Using Zoom to change the picture
Making the appropriate TV Aspect Ratio and TV Display Capability settings (see pages 15 through 17) should
ensure that the picture on your TV screen is not distorted (stretched or squashed) and that it fills as much of
the screen as possible.
However, even if you have selected the correct settings, there may be times when a program appears with
black borders either at the top and bottom or at the sides of the picture (or sometimes even all the way around
the picture). This happens because the aspect ratio (shape) of the transmitted program does not match
the aspect ratio of your HDTV, or because the transmitted program includes black borders as part of the
transmission (see right).
A 4:3 transmission, with a
16:9 picture. Dark bars are
added at the top and bottom
of the transmission.
Your remote control should have a “zoom function” button (could be labeled ZOOM or ASPECT), which you
can use to change the TV picture until it appears as you want it to.
1. Press the “zoom function” button once to change the display.
2. Press it again to change the display again. Continue to press it in this way until the picture appears as you
want it to.
Note: The effect that this button has on transmissions depends on the transmission itself. On some
transmissions it may have no effect at all.

Setting up subtitles
Subtitles in various languages may be transmitted with TV programs. You can set up your set-top to display
subtitles, when they are available. You can also set your preferred language for these subtitles. There is a
choice of several languages, including English.
If you set subtitles to be “on”, they will be displayed in the preferred language only when subtitles in that
language are transmitted with a program. For example, if you set subtitles to be “on” and in Spanish, but only
French subtitles are transmitted with a particular program, you will see French subtitles for that program, not
Spanish.
Note: You can also turn on closed captions (see page 19) to give subtitles, but any subtitles you set up using
this PACE SUBTITLE SETTINGS menu will take priority.
Selecting subtitles in your preferred language
1. Make sure that your set-top is turned on (the

MAKING USER SETTINGS (cont.)
About TV Display Capability (resolution settings)
• Your set-top can transmit pictures to your TV in a range of resolutions (also called “Display Capabilities”
- see below for the settings available). Generally, higher screen resolutions give better quality pictures.
However, the quality always depends on how the program was originally transmitted.
• Different TVs display different screen resolutions. For example, standard TVs display “480i”, EDTVs
(Enhanced Definition TVs) display “480p”, and most HDTVs display “1080p”, “1080i”, or “720p”. Many
HDTVs will display at more than one resolution. For more information, see the information supplied with
your HDTV. See also the note, right.
You may need to make appropriate TV Display Capability settings on your set-top, so that it is compatible with
your TV. See the next page for full instructions.
In order to display the best picture every time, you must select every resolution that your TV is capable of
displaying. This ensures that programs are displayed with minimum distortion.
There are five front-panel lights for the various resolutions. The appropriate one lights up to show the
resolution of the transmission your set-top is currently receiving (not the resolution of the signals at the
outputs of your set-top).
TV Display Capability settings
• 480i is standard definition NTSC and is transmitted
in a 4:3 aspect ratio (see right).
• 480p is enhanced digital TV and can be transmitted
in either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio.
• 720p,1080i, and 1080p are HDTV and are
transmitted in a 16:9 aspect ratio (see right).
480i transmission:
The aspect ratio is 4:3
1080i transmission:
The aspect ratio is 16:9
NOTE
When your HDTV and set-top are
connected by an HDMI connector,
your set-top gets information from
your HDTV about the HDTV’s display
capability. Your set-top uses this
information to adjust its TV Display
Capability settings.
Your set-top also records your
HDTV’s ID (identification), so that only
one HDTV is supported at any one
time. When your HDTV has updated
your set-top’s TV Display Capability
settings, you may change them if
you wish. Your changes will then be
stored with the ID.
You can restore your set-top’s TV
Display Capability settings to their
factory values, as described on page
22. You can also restore your set-top
to the settings that your HDTV has
passed to your set-top. To do this you
must first restore the factory settings
while the HDMI cable is disconnected
from your set-top, then reconnect your
HDTV via the HDMI cable.
Changing the TV Display Capability
If you have not already done so, put your set-top into User Settings mode, as described on page 15.
1. Press the U or D button on your remote control until the front panel shows “reS” (short for resolution).
On the PACE USER SETTINGS menu, TV Display Capability is highlighted when “reS” is on the front
panel.
2. Press the R button when you see “reS” on the front panel.
The front panel shows the TV display capability that was last selected, so it could show 480i, 480P, 720P,
1080i, 1080p24 Pass*, 1080p30 Pass* or 1080p60 (the last four settings are displayed as 1080). The TV
Display Capability menu, shown right, appears on your TV screen.
3. Press the U or D button to highlight each resolution in turn on the menu and, for each one, press the
OK/Select button if you wish to change the setting (the setting changes between “YES” and “NO” each
time you press OK/Select).
If, at any stage in this process, the menu disappears from the screen, immediately press
the OK/Select button to restore the menu.
4. When you are satisfied that all the TV resolutions are correct, press the L button. The front panel shows
“reS” again and the PACE USER SETTINGS menu reappears.
To continue making the settings, see the next section.

MAKING USER SETTINGS (cont.)
* NOTE
If your HDTV is 1080p-compliant and connected by HDMI, setting “1080p24 Pass” to YES causes 1080p/24
transmissions (at 24 frames per second) to be displayed at 1080p/24. Likewise, setting “1080p30 Pass” to
YES causes 1080p/30 transmissions (at 30 frames per second) to be displayed at 1080p/30.
The HDMI-connected HDTV may report that it is not 1080p-compliant and set “1080p24 Pass” (or “1080p30
Pass”) to NO. In this case 1080p transmissions will be output at one of the other resolutions (1080i, 720p,
480p, or 480i). If you override this NO setting and set YES, you may see nothing for 1080p transmissions.
If the HDTV is not connected by HDMI, “HDMI Cable Required” is displayed and you cannot set “1080p24
Pass” or “1080p30 Pass” to either YES or NO.
Transmissions at 480i, 480p, 720p, or 1080i can never be output at 1080p.
Further information about the TV Display Capability
The TV Display Capability settings relate to equipment that is connected to the HDMI and COMPONENT
VIDEO connectors because the settings control the output at those connectors. If equipment is connected via
an HDMI cable, that equipment may also pass information back to your set-top, which may affect the settings
that are available.
Generally, the TV Display Capability settings do not affect equipment connected to the VIDEO OUT and
S-VIDEO connectors, because the output at these connectors is always standard definition 480i.

If your TV is a 16:9 TV that does not automatically detect 4:3 transmissions (and therefore does not add black
bars to the sides of the picture), then 4:3 transmissions may display “stretched” to fit the 16:9 screen. If you
do not want this effect, you can set your set-top to add black bars to the 4:3 picture, so that it is transmitted to
your TV at a 16:9 aspect ratio. See the example below.

turned on. Check that they are plugged into
wall AC outlets and turned on.
D
Check that you have selected the appropriate AV input
on your TV: HDMI, component video (YPbPr), S-video
or composite video (depending on how your system is
connected up).
If you are using an HDMI connection, make sure the
connection goes directly from your set-top to your TV. If
your set-top detects that the link is not secure, your settop will not transmit a picture (see page 7). If you expect
the link to be secure, try disconnecting and reconnecting
the HDMI cable.
Make sure your set-top’s TV Display Capability settings
are appropriate for your TV (see page 16). For more
information on displaying a picture on your HDTV screen
see page 11.

too small?

Check that the TV Aspect Ratio and TV
Display Capability, as set on your set-top, are
appropriate for your TV (see pages 15 and 16).
Change them if necessary.
If your TV is a 16:9 TV, you can use Auto Pillarbox to
add black borders to 4:3 transmissions, so that the
picture is not stretched (see page 18).
If your TV is connected to the VIDEO OUT
connector, then you will see menus and guides
only if the screen resolution 480i is set to
“Yes” and all the others are set to are set to
“No”.
Change the TV Display Capability resolution settings if
necessary (see page 16).
Check that the audio cables are securely and
correctly connected.
Check that you have not muted the sound on your settop and/or TV. Adjust the volume control on your set-top
and/or TV. If you are using a home theater receiver,
check it is set up correctly.
If the TV Aspect Ratio and TV Display Capability settings
are correct, try using Zoom to improve the picture (see
page 13) or consult the instructions that came with your
TV and try adjusting your TV’s display.

SOLVING PROBLEMS (cont.)
Check
Suggested solution
Further checks, if there is still a problem
Can you hear stereo
sound?
First check that the program is likely to have
stereo sound (an old movie, for example, may
not be in stereo).
If your TV is mono, you will hear stereo sound only if
you have a stereo audio amplifier and speakers or home
theater connected to your stereo VCR or set-top.
YES
NO
R
D
Check the on-screen Setup Menu, Audio
settings (see page 23). The Stereo Output may
be set to “Mono”. Change it to “Stereo”.
Can you see and hear a
DVD that you are trying to
play?
Check that all the audio and video cables are
securely and correctly connected, including
any to a home theater receiver that you may be
using to enhance the sound.
—
Some programs may include “copy protection”
which means, if your set-top is connected
to your HDTV via the component video
connectors, the picture is downgraded to
standard TV quality. To prevent this from
happening, use an HDMI connection instead.
—
The internal hard disk (if fitted) may be
temporarily disabled because your set-top
has overheated. Make sure your set-top is not
overheating (refer to the set-top’s ventilation
requirements on page 4).
