MTS HDTV Set-Top Box General Information and Maintenance
The MTS HDTV set-top box features high-definition TV (HDTV), which provides up to twice the colour
resolution and up to six times the sharpness of standard TV when connected to an HD-capable TV.
The main TV’s set-top box contains a Personal Video Recorder (PVR). The MTS HDTV set-top box PVR
can record standard-definition and high-definition programs on a hard drive. It also enables you to pause
and rewind live programming. PVR functionality may be limited on some channels.
Other TVs in your home are connected to a standard high-definition MTS HDTV set-top box.
Set-top boxes with hard drives and those without hard drives have identical front panels and rear panel
connectors; only the size varies. Set-top boxes with hard drives are physically larger than those without hard
drives.
Basic set-top box maintenance:
ƒ
Ensure the vents on the set-top box are not blocked.
ƒ
Do not place on a rug or bed as it may overheat.
ƒ
Do not stack equipment on it.
ƒ
Maintain at least two inches of free space above it.
ƒ
Never place near or on a heater or radiator.
ƒ
Ensure adequate ventilation.

HDMI or Y Pb Pr (component video)
S-Video, RCA-type, or RF coaxial
To determine the available inputs on your TV, check the manual supplied with the TV or on the TV itself.
When you are familiar with the available inputs on your TV, choose the optimal video connection based on
the following guidelines.
Connecting to an HDTV, use one of:
HDMI offers higher quality than component video. If your HDTV has an HDMI
input, use the HDMI connector. HDMI carries video and audio. If you connect
your HDTV using HDMI, no additional audio connection to the TV are
necessary.

If your HDTV has DVI input, you can use an HDMI-to-DVI converter cable to
connect to set-top box HDMI connector. Use a cable with an HDMI connector
on one end and a DVI connector on the other end. We do not recommend
using the HDMI-to-DVI or DVI-to-HDMI adapter. Because DVI does not carry
audio, a separate audio connection is required for DVI TV.
The Y Pb Pr connectors provide component video the most widely supported
HDTV connection. If your HDTV only has Y Pb Pr inputs, use these
connectors.

OUT connector on your set-top box using the provided RCA-type video cable.
If your TV only has a coaxial RF input, use the coaxial TO TV (VIDEO OUT)
connector.

TV Streams
MTS assigns three (3) unique ‘streams’ to your home at one time. Each stream can deliver a single program
at a time to the set-top box in your home.
Two (2) streams are High Definition Streams, and one (1) stream is a Standard Definition Stream. The High
Definition Streams can be used to deliver High Definition Channels, Standard Definition Channels, or Video
On Demand movies. Even though Video On Demand service is not delivered in an HD format, it does
require the use of one of the HD streams.

Section 2 – Set Volume, Channel and Power Options
The defaults for your power, volume and channel control are that they always send the codes to the
Receiver not matter what mode you are in. Thus in DVD mode, the volume still controls the Receiver, etc.

A. Volume Control Set Up Options
The volume commands are always sent to the Receiver until the TV mode key is programmed. Then the
volume commands are sent to the TV from all mode keys. If you’d like the volume commands to still be sent
to just one device, but that it be different device (for example a home theatre setup) then follow the
instructions in I. Volume Always Controls the Same Device. If you’d like the volume command sent to
different devices depending on which mode you are in then go to II. Volume Control Depends on Device
