SAFETY INFORMATION
Mains supply
This equipment is designed to operate from a 220-240 Volt, 50Hz AC mains supply. Other power
sources may damage it. Check that the rating label on the equipment says 230V AC ( ~ ) before you
plug it in for the first time.
Mains plug
We have fitted this equipment with a standard mains plug.
• If the mains lead gets damaged it must be replaced by a qualified service agent with an approved
lead of the same type.
• If you cut off the mains plug, for example to fit a different type, please destroy the old plug as it would
be dangerous if inserted into a live power outlet. Carefully follow the wiring instructions supplied with
the new plug.
• If a fuse is fitted to the plug, remove the fuse before throwing the plug away.
• Carefully follow the wiring instructions supplied with a new mains plug.
• Never use a fused mains plug without the fuse cover.
Mains plug wiring for the UK
In a re-wirable plug the wires in the mains lead of this equipment must be connected as follows.
• The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal that is marked with the letter L.
• The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal that is marked with the letter N.
• Do not connect anything to the earth terminal which is marked E, or
• You must make sure the mains lead is firmly secured under the cord clamp.
Mains fuse
UK standard (BS1363) plugs must have a 5 amp (BS1362 type) fuse fitted. Replace the plug or have
the power lead assembly replaced if the fuse cover is lost.
Symbols
This equipment is double
insulated and an earth connection is not required.
Dangerous voltage constituting
a risk of electric shock is present
inside this equipment.
This mark is applied to show
the equipment conforms to
European safety and electromagnetic compatibility standards.
There are important operating and
maintenance instructions in the literature accompanying this equipment.

Safe use and care of your audio equipment
We have designed and made this product to meet European safety standards, but as with any
electrical equipment you must take care to get the longest working life from it and stay safe. Here are
a few tips to help you do this.
Read these instructions carefully before you try to use the equipment.
Protect the mains lead. You must ensure the mains lead cannot be walked on, crushed, chafed, cut,
and so on.
Avoid harsh conditions such as wet or damp places, high humidity, strong vibration, extremely high
or low temperatures, strong sunlight or places which are dusty.
Never let anyone push objects into holes and ventilation slots.
Don't continue to use this equipment if you have spilt liquids in it, if it is damaged in any way or if it
does not work normally. Immediately unplug the equipment and get expert advice.
Pull the mains plug out of the wall socket during thunderstorms and disconnect the aerial lead.
This product is only designed for household or similar general use. Any other use may
invalidate the guarantee and might be dangerous.
Ventilation
Place the equipment on a hard flat surface away from direct sunlight and heat sources. If it is in a
cabinet, allow at least a 10 cm gap all around. Don't obstruct the ventilation slots, including those
underneath, with soft furnishings. Overheating will shorten the life of the equipment and increase the
risk of fire.
Cleaning
Disconnect the mains supply and use only a lightly dampened soft cloth. Do not use chemical solvents
or strong detergents as these may damage the cosmetic finish.
Batteries
Remove batteries when the equipment is not to be used for a long time. Batteries left in equipment
may cause damage through deterioration and corrosive leakage, invalidating the guarantee. To
protect the environment please use local recycling facilities for battery disposal.
Disposal
Waste electrical and electronic products must not be disposed of with
household waste. Please refer to your local authority for disposal
instructions.
Packaging materials can be recycled using your local collection facilities.

Important Safety warnings
• To prevent electric shock, do not remove any cover.
• If anything goes wrong, don't try and fix it yourself, get a qualified service agent to look at it.
• Do not expose this equipment to dripping or splashing or place any objects filled with liquids,
such as vases, on the equipment.
• Never put a naked flame source on or near the equipment.
• Small parts. Do not let young children play with the equipment.
• Do not move your device for 20 seconds after removing the power to ensure that the actuator
is completely locked. This helps prevent the media and the heads from accidental damage due
to vibration, moving or shipping.
• Do not switch the power ON or OFF, during HDD initialization.

Recording Format
•
•
HDD recording is done using the variable bit rate format (VBR) for more efficient
recording. The following phenomena may occur.
With the variable bit rate format, the remaining amount which can be recorded may increase
or decrease relative to the display of the remaining amount of HDD space.
When the display indicates that the remaining amount of HDD space is low, first delete
unnecessary programmes, and then record with an extra margin in the amount of remaining
space. There is an option in the configuration menu to discard the recordings. You can choose
between three options:
Deleting,
1 – Oldest recordings
2 – Largest recordings
3 – Smallest recordings
When the HDD is out of space, it will operate regarding one of these options and delete the
recordings.
Even if you delete a programme, the remaining amount may not increase by the amount of
deleted time. When recording new video, record with an extra margin in the amount of
remaining space.
Unrecordable Material
In the unlikely event that there is some problem like loss of recorded video or audio content due to an
HDD malfunction, please be aware beforehand that we will bear no responsibility to compensate for
the content which could not be recorded or edited, for the loss of recorded or edited video, or for other
related direct or indirect damages.
•
•
•
•
If a power failure occurs
The content being recorded or timer recorded may be damaged if power failure occurs.
The content being played back may be damaged.
For important recording
If the HDD malfunctions, the content recorded on the HDD may be lost. If you wish to save
content permanently, we recommend copying or moving the content to Video or DVD.
NOTE
If a message indicating an HDD error is displayed (such as “ERROR IN HDD. CANNOT
OPERATE.”) and the HDD has malfunctioned, you cannot replace the HDD by yourself. If you
disassemble the Recorder, the warranty will become void. Also, recovery of data is
impossible. If playback is possible, re-record the recorded content onto a Video or DVD, and
contact the approved service centre with the details provided at the front and back of this
operation manual.
Hard Disk Operation (Recording / Playback / Time Shift Recording)

TEXT
Many digital terrestrial television channels not only broadcast pictures and sound for programmes but
also pages of information on the programmes, the weather, news and many other topics. This digital
teletext can be displayed by the receiver.Some channels are entirely given over to digital teletext and
carry no normal TV programme at all.
These dedicated digital teletext channels will not give a quarter-screen image in the EPG or the
Channel List screen. When such a channel is selected, after a brief pause, they will usually display
the opening page of information automatically. Other channels have digital teletext pages broadcast
alongside the television programme and often include a reduced-size broadcast picture within digital
teletext pages.
These usually require the TEXT button to be pressed to activate the digital teletext pages.In both
cases, moving through the different pages of information is accomplished in a variety of ways,
dependent on the individual broadcasters, but including use of the “5/6/3/4” and [OK] keys to
select items from on-screen menus, and the coloured keys to jump directly to particular pages.
You can exit teletext mode by pressing the TEXT button on the remote or by changing channel. Also if
you call for the INFO bar or bring up a menu you will temporarily enter TV mode returning to TEXT
mode when you cancel the menu or INFO bar.
You can exit any digital teletext channel by changing channel in any of the normal ways. You can
leave the digital teletext function of a combined digital teletext/programme channel, to return to
normal television viewing of that channel, by pressing the TEXT key.Calling for the information banner
or any menu on-screen stops the receiver from displaying the digital teletext pages and they are
temporarily replaced by a blank picture while the banner or menu is displayed.Digital teletext cannot
be accessed when the Subtitles are enabled.
27
WIDE
TV sets are available with screens of the standard (4:3) format and widescreen (16:9) format. When
you first installed your receiver you specified the format of the connected TV (this can now be altered if
necessary; see Configuration)Digital terrestrial television broadcasts are also made in both standard
and widescreen formats. In particular, films and dramas tend to be broadcast in widescreen format to
closer emulate the cinema experience, but some programmes such as news bulletins are 4:3. To help
get the most from both TV set and programme when a widescreen film is watched on a standard TV,
or a standard broadcast is viewed on a widescreen set, the receiver includes the WIDE key.So long as
the receiver has been correctly set up for the TV set connected, a widescreen programme will always
be displayed correctly on a widescreen set, and a standard format programme will correctly fill the
screen of a standard format TV.
With a widescreen TV set displaying a standard format programme the WIDE key switches between
displaying the picture with black bars down the sides, and enlarging the picture so that it fills the whole
width of the screen but the top and bottom are cropped off.With a standard format TV displaying a
widescreen programme, the WIDE key switches between displaying the picture with black bars at the
top and bottom of the screen, and filling the whole height of the screen but cropping the sides off
according to instructions broadcast with the programme (called 'pan and scan').The effect of the WIDE
key on the picture display is cancelled by pressing WIDE again.
NOTE:
Sometimes the TV will automatically try and compensate for an incorrect screen format, in this
instance set the tv to the correct format whilst viewing the programme.

12. IMPORTANT NOTICE:
DIGITAL SWITCHOVER AND YOUR TV EQUIPMENT
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO ENJOY WATCHING TV DURING AND FOLLOWING DIGITAL
SWITCHOVER
Starting in 2008* and ending in 2012, television services in the UK will go completely digital, TV region
by TV region.
To continue using this digital TV equipment during and following digital switchover, you will need to
“reset” your digital TV channels.
Users of this digital TV DTR must reset their channels on at least 2 different occasions, normally 1
month apart when switchover happens. Digital UK, the body leading digital TV switchover, and
broadcasters will advise you when to reset your channels on each occasion.
If you do not reset your channels, you risk losing some or all of your TV services during and following
switchover.
Please refer to this instruction manual for help with resetting channels. The instructions for resetting
the channels are on page 15 of this manual.
Please note that in order to receive the maximum number of available TV services on your equipment
you must preform a first time installation and do not just add channels.
For more information about this, please contact our helpline using the above contact details or visit
www.digitaluk.co.uk.
