Change the Way You Watch TV
Welcome to U-verse TV. The ISB7000 and ISB7500 devices, known as U-verse receivers, bring a rich,
new set of interactive services directly to you through your TV and your in-home IP network. The
receiver uses the existing in-home coaxial cable wiring and connects to most entertainment devices.
With Total Home DVR service, you can:
• Record up to four shows at once on a single DVR
• Record and play back your shows in any room from a single DVR
• Pause, fast-forward, and rewind recorded shows on any TV from a single DVR
• Pause your recorded show in one room and pick it up in another
• Play the same recorded show on different TVs at the same time and control them separately
• Store up to 233 hours of SD or 65 hours of HD content with our larger-capacity DVR—included
with AT&T U-verse TV U300 and U450 packages
• Program your DVR remotely from your computer or wireless phone
Note: Contact your service provider to find out if these services are available and to activate the
services.
What’s In the Carton?
In addition to this product manual, the receiver carton contains the following items:
•
An ISB7500 Receiver - TV receiver with a 500 GB hard drive that supports high-definition (HD) and
standard-definition (SD) video decoding. Supports 480i, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p content. Uses
Ethernet over CAT-5 or HPNAv3 in-home networking over coaxial or twisted-pair
OR

Connecting to a Stereo VCR or DVD Recorder (optional)
The diagram below shows how to connect a recording device to your receiver. Although it
is possible to watch TV using a connection through your VCR or DVD recorder to the TV, this
connection may not provide the best picture, and HDTV users are restricted to an SD format. In
addition, some content is copy protected and passing this content through the recording device
may result in a picture that cannot be viewed.
For these reasons, the connection shown is best used to provide only video and audio to your
recording device and not for normal TV viewing. The connection from the recording device to the
TV (only used for playback of recorded material) depends on the type of device being used, the
outputs that are supported, and the inputs that remain available for use on your TV.
Consult the owner’s manuals provided with your TV and recording device for more details on
connection options.
Cables Used in this Configuration
• 1 RCA-type Video Cable
• 1 Set Audio Left/Right Cables
WARNING:
Electric shock hazard! Unplug all electronic devices before connecting or
disconnecting any device cables to the receiver.
Connecting your TV directly to the Audio/Video output of your receiver will
assure a more vivid picture and enhance your viewing enjoyment.

Troubleshooting
If the receiver does not perform as expected, the following tips may help. If you need further
assistance, contact your service provider.
No Picture
•
Verify that the power to your TV is turned on.
•
If the receiver is plugged into a wall switch, verify that the switch is in the ON position.
•
Verify that all cables are properly connected.
•
If your system includes a VCR, DVD recorder, or stereo, verify that you have properly connected
the device to the receiver.
•
Verify that you are using the proper input selection to the home theater receiver or TV.
•
Verify that the receiver is set to the proper screen type and resolution.
•
If you are using coaxial cable to connect to your TV, verify that the TV is tuned to the channel
designated by your service provider (usually channel 3). Contact your service provider for the
channel information.
No Color or Incorrect Color
•
Verify that the current TV program is broadcast in color.
•
Adjust the TV color controls.
•
If you are using a component video connection (YPbPr), check that all connectors are completely
and properly plugged into the receiver and TV.
•
If you are using a component video connection (YPbPr) and your HDTV has only RGB or RGB-HV
connectors, you must use an adapter. You can obtain the adapter through an electronic parts
retailer.
No Sound
•
If your setup includes a VCR, DVD recorder, or stereo, verify that you have properly connected
the device to the receiver.
•
Verify that the volume is turned up.
•
Verify that the mute function is not on.
•
Verify the proper input selection to the home theater receiver or TV.
•
If you are using coaxial cable to connect to your TV, verify that the TV is tuned to the correct channel.
Avoid Screen Burn-In
Images such as letterbox bars or side bars, bright closed-captioning backgrounds, station logos, or
any other stationary images may cause the display in your HDTV to age unevenly; this is known as
screen burn-in. Refer to the owner’s manual that came with your HDTV for more information.
CAUTION:
Avoid screen burn-in.
Do not display the same fixed images on your HDTV screen for extended periods of time.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Digital Television?
Digital television (DTV) is a huge leap forward in television technology compared to analog television
that has been widely available since the 1940s. DTV is delivered and displayed using digital encoding,
similar to the way a PC operates. By using digital technology, there is no variation in picture and
sound quality from the origination point until it is displayed on your television. You always receive a
high-quality picture without the wavy lines or static you might sometimes get from a weak analog
signal. Another feature of digital television is digital surround sound using Dolby Digital technology,
which is the same technology used to produce the sound you hear in movie theaters.
What Is Standard-Definition Television?
Standard-definition television (SDTV) is basic digital television programming delivered by your
service provider. Typically, the SDTV screen is the same, nearly square shape as an analog
television screen. Digital images on an SDTV set are crisp and clear—noticeably better than on a
standard analog television set using an antenna to receive over-the-air signals.
What Is High-Definition Television?
High-definition television (HDTV) is a completely new way to send and receive television broadcast
signals. HDTV images are made up of pixels that are much smaller and closer together than those
used in standard analog television, and there are millions of them. Thus, HDTV can display five to six
times the detail of analog television to deliver picture quality that is much more realistic, dimensional,
and precise. SDTV programs can be viewed on an HDTV.
Are Local TV Stations or Other Programmers Broadcasting in
HDTV?
Many local TV stations and programmers are transmitting digital signals. However, transmitting
a digital signal does not mean transmitting an HDTV signal. Some stations are using the new
bandwidth to broadcast several standard-definition channels. Most stations and programmers, once
they begin broadcasting in digital, are offering HD content from their parent network (for example,
CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, and PBS). Contact your service provider for more information.
Why Aren’t All the Shows I Watch in High-Definition?
A high-definition program must originate in HD format and be broadcast in HD format. Having an
HDTV system does not mean that everything you watch will be viewed in high-definition. Getting the
signal from a digital source also does not mean it is high-definition.
Why Are Some HDTVs 4:3 Aspect Ratio and Others 16:9?
The aspect ratios differ because television manufacturers build both standard-screen and widescreen HDTVs to appeal to consumer viewing preferences. The two aspect ratios are as follows:
•
On standard-screen (4:3) HDTVs, the programming is displayed in letterbox format in the middle
of the screen. There are bars surrounding the picture.
•
On wide-screen (16:9) HDTVs, the programming is displayed on the full screen.
What Is HDMI and Does it Support Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio?
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video
interface. The Dolby Digital audio format that provides up to 5.1 separate channels of surround
sound, and is the standard used for DVD-Video. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or highdefinition video, plus multi-channel digital audio, such as Dolby Digital audio, on a single cable.
25
Picture Formats
What Is the Difference Between a Standard-Screen and a WideScreen HDTV?
The type of screen your HDTV has (wide-screen or standard-screen) determines how the receiver
displays programs on the screen. The picture format for an HDTV is a combination of aspect ratio
and screen resolution and is different for standard-screen and wide-screen HDTVs.
What Is Aspect Ratio?
An aspect ratio is the ratio of the width to the height of the TV screen. The aspect ratios differ
because the television industry manufactures both standard-screen and wide-screen HDTVs to
appeal to consumer viewing preferences.
What Is the Screen Resolution?
The screen resolution indicates the amount of detail that the picture displays. Resolution is identified
by the number of display lines on the screen. The techniques that an HDTV uses to “paint” the
picture on the screen are referred to as progressive and interlaced.
With the progressive scanning method, the lines are drawn on the screen one at a time in
sequential order. Progressive scanning results in a more detailed image on the screen and is also less
susceptible to the flicker commonly associated with interlaced scanning. The interlaced method
involves refreshing pixels in alternation — first the odd lines and then the even lines.
For advanced setup, select the screen resolution that your TV can support. Refer to your Feature
Guide and HDTV owner’s manuals to choose the proper screen resolution (480i, 720p, 1080i, or
1080p) for your setup.
For example, a screen resolution of 1080i indicates that the screen shows 1080 lines in an
interlaced display, and 720p indicates that the screens shows 720 lines in a progressive display.
A standard-screen HDTV has a 4x3
aspect ratio. The screen is 4 units wide
for every 3 units tall.
A wide-screen HDTV is one-third wider
than a standard-screen HDTV. The screen is
16 units wide for every 9 units tall.
