Introduction
Congratulations on your choice of this state-of-the-art Digital Television
Recorder (DTR). We hope you will enjoy all the new features this technology
brings to your home for many years. Your DTR is going to revolutionise the
way you watch TV.
You can pause live TV, for example while you answer the phone and then
resume watching where you left off. You can also record two different
channels at the same time. Delayed viewing, fast-forward and rewind
functions allow you to play and replay the sports action without having
to worry about the rest of the game­ which is still being recorded. These
features could make you lose track of time, but fortunately the LIVE TV
button brings you back to the present instantly.
We’re sure that you want to get started. On the following pages are a quick
start guide to help you set the DTR up in just six easy steps. On page 11
there is a guide on Using Your DTR Remote Control. There are detailed
explanations for each step later on in the manual and on page 44 you will
find the terms and conditions covering your DTR.
If you need any further information about your DTR, or want to see more
information about the programmes currently on Top Up TV, then just visit
topuptv.com
Note: This product can be upgraded from software updates broadcast over
the air to your DTR. Top Up TV reserves the right to transmit software updates
that it would consider appropriate in order to improve the functionality of
the product, without degrading the quality level.

IMPORTANT: Disconnect the power to all your existing equipment.
Now place your DTR where you want to keep it and connect it to your TV as
shown in the diagram, by following these simple instructions:
Getting Started
AUnplug the aerial cable from your VCR (or TV) and plug it into the
Aerial In socket of your DTR.
BUsing the SCART lead, connect the TV SCART socket on your DTR to the AV1/EXT1/AUX1 SCART socket at the back of your TV.
C Connect the mains lead to the mains socket and switch on at the mains.
Reconnect the power to all your existing equipment and turn your TV on.
When you plug your DTR into the power supply, a red light and the message
PLS WAIT will be displayed. This will be followed by WELCOME TO TOP UP
TV+, the HDD symbol will flash for about 45 seconds. You must wait for the
HDD symbol to stop flashing and the display to go dim before pressing any
buttons.
Step 3 – Your DTR is ready to scan for channels
Press the DTR button on your remote. The button will momentarily flash.
This will confirm that the remote control is working correctly. Now wait for
the light on the front of your DTR to turn from red to green.
Your TV should now automatically
switch to the DTR input and display the
image shown. If this does not happen,
using your TV remote, manually select
the TV SCART input to which you have
connected your DTR. Refer to your TV
handbook if required, but it is likely that
the TV remote button will be labelled
‘AV’ or have this symbol
Once you can see the image on screen displayed here, and have ensured all
connections are correct, press OK on your remote control.
7
Step 4 – Channel Scan
You will see this screen showing that
your DTR is now searching for all available
channels.
In the event that your DTR does not
find any channels, or has missed some,
see the section on what to do if your
Installation fails, on page 10.
When your DTR has successfully found all channels, your DTR will search for
and install the extended 14 day Programme Guide software. Please note
that when you start to use the extended guide after installation, that this
may take up to 24 hours to fully populate.
Step 5 – Parental Control
You will now be prompted to set up
the Parental Control PIN for your DTR.
For Top Up TV subscribers, this controls
who will have access to the extra
programmes, which are downloaded
automatically to your DTR every night.
The Parental Control PIN will not
control or restrict access to Freeview
programmes (your default PIN is 0000.)
If children have access to your DTR, it is advisable to select the maximum
appropriate viewing certification now, in order to restrict access. E.g. by
selecting 12, you will restrict access to programmes rated 15 or higher.
Once you have completed this step, press OK on your remote.
For more parental control options please refer to page 28.

Getting Started
Step 6 – Top Up TV Anytime set up
With Top Up TV Anytime you’ll get up to 600 carefully selected programmes
downloaded to your Top Up TV+ DTR every month. That’s up to 150 extra
programmes available at any one time on top of your normal Freeview
channels. You can also upgrade to PictureBox which gives you an additional
30 movies a month or take Setanta Sports, a must-have for sports fans.
Press
OK
OK
Using your DTR remote control, now switch to channel 5 and check you are
getting a picture. If you are not getting a picture on channel 5, please refer
to the Troubleshooting section for help.
To activate the extra channels available from Top Up TV, please refer
to your welcome pack and the included viewing card instructions
for full details. Once you have called us to activate your subscription,
you will need t o leave your DTR on channel 16 (QVC) for around
30 minutes. This will ensure that your DTR receives your
subscription activation successfully.
It may take up to 48 hours for your first Top Up TV Anytime programmes
to appear in your DTR library, but you will be able to watch your Freeview
channels right away.
9
Insert your card into the slot with the chip upwards.
To ensure the best operation of your DTR, we recommend that you leave
your DTR in STANDBY whenever it is not in use. Note that turning the
power off at the mains will prevent your DTR from receiving Top Up TV
programmes.
If the installation fails, check the points below and try to
rescan for channels again.

heck that all the connections have been made as shown in the diagram
on page 6 and the power is switched on to all of the equipment.
• C
heck that the batteries in the remote control are in the right way round
and press the DTR button. Check that the DTR button flashes when
pressed.
• Make sure the TV aerial is connected directly to your DTR (1st in chain).
• Check any signal boosters are Digital TV compatible and switched on.
• R
epeat the installation by following the channel scan instructions on
page 8 of the main user manual.
If the installation still fails, please refer to the Troubleshooting guide and/
or the help pages on the website topuptv.com
You may also call Top Up TV on 08444 159 159 for further
assistance.

Finally, when you have finished making adjustments, use the
BACK button to return to the TV picture. You may need to press
it more than once, depending on the menu item.
14
Using the Programme Guide
Using Your DTR
Your DTR has access to two programme guides. Initially your DTR will
provide the standard Freeview 7 day Programme Guide, but as soon as
your DTR has acquired the Top Up TV on-screen programming guide, you
will have access to 14 day listings. The Programme Guide screen gives you
a fast way of planning your viewing and recording. To access this guide,
press the GUIDE button.
The guide shows the next three periods of 30 minutes, for each channel.
While in the Programme Guide, you can navigate around using the arrow
buttons. UP / DOWN arrows will move between channels, while the LEFT
and RIGHT arrows move in time. The Guide is split into three sections of
30 minutes each. The information contained in a time segment usually shows the name of
the programme. This is only the case when the programme takes up the whole of that 30
minute time slot. As programmes can be longer or shorter than 30 minutes, the Programme
Guide has been constructed to inform you of this.
If a programme is longer than 30 minutes the next time slot shows three dots to indicate that the
programme runs in to the next slot. If a programme is shorter that 30 minutes the programme
name is followed by an arrow to indicate that more than one programme exists in that slot.
If a programme does not start exactly on the
time boundary, it will have two dots in front
of the programme name to indicate that it
starts later than the time shown in the column
heading.
If you leave the highlighter box over a
programme for more than five seconds, a
box will appear showing a synopsis of the
programme. It also shows the start and end
times for that programme in the top right-hand
corner.
15
Across the bottom of the screen are a number of functions that can be activated by pressing
the coloured buttons on your remote control.
Go to day
Pressing the GREEN button will bring up an overlay box
(pop-up). This is the GO TO DAY menu.
Using the UP and DOWN arrows you will move the
highlighter to a day in the future. Pressing OK will take
you back to the Programme Guide, but now the guide
is showing programmes on the day you selected. From
here you can set up recordings or reminders.
Set reminder
Pressing the YELLOW button will add a reminder to the currently highlighted programme.
You can see i f you have set a reminder as the reminder icon
will appear next to the
programme name. If you wish to cancel the reminder, press the YELLOW button again.
When that event arrives, you will be reminded by a pop-up which will appear on-screen.
You can accept the reminder by pressing the GREEN button to watch the programme or
cancel it with the RED button.
Record
Pressing the
button will take you to the PLANNED RECORDINGS screen. Press the
button again to add
the recording to the planned recordings list.
When you go back to the TV Guide, you will see
next to the planned recording.
For more information on planned recordings, please
refer to ‘How to make Recordings’ on page 21.

Top Up TV Anytime
Using Your DTR
In addition to the standard Freeview channels, your DTR
can also give you access to a wider range of programmes on
Top Up TV Anytime.
By subscribing to Top Up TV Anytime for a small monthly
fee, your DTR will automatically record and download
programmes from channels such as Discovery,
UKTV Gold, Warner TV, the Disney Channel, National
Geographic channel and more, for you to watch
whenever it suits you.
The extra channels are shown across the
bottom of the Programme Guide screen.
Pressing the Top Up TV button on your remote enables
you to view the list of programmes available to watch
right now. Then you simply use the LEFT and RIGHT
arrow buttons to scroll through and press OK on
anything you want to watch.
To subscribe to the extra programming and choice that
Top Up TV brings call now on 08444 158 158.
Programme Search
The powerful search facility allows for searching the
entire Programme Guide and Programme Library.
Note: To select the search facility use the RED button in
the Guide, to record programmes from the Guide use the
RECORD button.
Use the NUMBERED buttons on your
remote control to enter
text.
Enter either
as much of the channel name or the programme title as you know and a
list of programmes matching your search request will appear allowing you to watch or
record the programmes. For example, entering ‘bbc’ as a channel name will return results
for all channels starting with the text ‘bbc’ (BBC ONE, BBC TWO, BBC THREE, etc.) whereas
entering ‘bbc o’ will return results for BBC ONE.
17
Note: Buttons 0 and 1 provide punctuation such as spaces and full-stops. If you enter the
wrong character, use the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move the cursor. Use the RED button to
delete a character and GREEN to insert.
To move between the search criterias use the REWIND
and FAST-FORWARD buttons. Use the COLOUR buttons
to delete and insert as indicated on screen. Date and time
options are also selected using the COLOUR buttons.
When selecting the time, the NUMBER buttons can be
used to enter the time. The search results can also be
refreshed by pressing the OK button.
To select a programme in the search results, press
DOWN and the cursor will move into the search
results list. The COLOUR buttons can then be used to
either watch or record any of the programmes. The
INFO button can be used to display a synopsis of
the programme. The PG+ and PG- buttons can be
used to page through the search results. Use the
COLOUR buttons to return to the search criteria
in order to refine your search.
18
Using your Programme Library
Your Programme Library is where all of your recorded and
Top Up TV Anytime programmes are stored. To access
it, press the Library button or Option 2 from the Main
Menu.
Using Your DTR
Your Programme Library will be empty at first, but as
you start to record programmes and Top Up TV Anytime
programmes are downloaded to your DTR, it will fill up. Note
that it will take 7 days from set up for your Top Up TV Anytime
programmes to be fully downloaded.
Your Programme Library is partitioned into two sections.
The top section shows your recorded programmes, and
any Top Up TV Anytime programmes that you have
saved. You can store recordings here and delete them
once you’ve watched them. To delete a recording, use the
arrow keys to highlight the recording and press the BLUE
button. Note that to manage the space available in both
sections, you need to customise your Top Up TV Anytime
viewing – see page 26 for full details.
The
bottom
section
is
where
your
Top
Up
TV
Anytime
programmes are stored. You will notice that the screen appears slightly different. There are
two differences. The first and most important is the Days Left column, and the second is the
red SAVE button.
Days Left
This shows how many days the programme will
remain stored on your DTR before it is automatically
deleted and replaced with new programmes. You
may watch the programme at anytime, but if the
Days Left number reaches zero, you only have a few
hours left before the programme is overwritten.
If you would like to watch the programme, but do not
have time within the time remaining, you can move
the programme to the top section by pressing the RED
button. The programme will now appear in the top
sections of the Programme Library and the Days Left will show Saved. For some programmes,
rights restrictions means we are unfortunately not able to offer the Save feature.
There are a number of functions that are common to both storage areas: If you pause the
highlighter over a programme, that programme will automatically
start playing in the small preview window on the right-hand side
of the screen. If you wish to watch the programme, press the OK
button. If you had previously not finished watching a programme, press the GREEN button
to resume the playback from the last watched point.
You can always access the Top Up TV programmes by pressing the Top Up TV
button.
19
Folders
Programmes on y our DTR are automatically placed in
folders to help organise your library and make them easy
to find later. Each recording can reside in more than one
folder, the ALL category and typically one other genre
folder, for example, Movies, Sport, Kids etc. To move
between folders use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons.
To highlight a programme use the UP and DOWN
buttons. To view the programme, press the OK button.
Synopsis
With the highlighter over a recording, pressing the INFO button will pop-up a small window
with a brief summary of the contents of that given programme. Press INFO again to exit
synopsis.
Delete
With the highlighter over a recording, press the BLUE button. You will see a confirmation
pop-up to confirm that you wish to delete the programme or exit without deleting.
Icons
There are two icons used to assist you in managing your Programme Library.
The P at the end of the programme name field is used to indicate that a programme has been
watched.
The
at the end of the programme name field is used to indicate that a programme is currently
‘playing’.
Pop-ups
Finally, you need to be aware of a few pop-ups that may
appear to help you with your selections.
Depending upon the way you have set-up your DTR, or
if you have not set-up enough storage space on your
DTR or you have simply run out of space, your DTR will
prompt you that there is not enough space to store your selection. If this happens, you will
need to delete some of your recordings if you wish to save additional programmes.
Also, a similar pop-up may appear if you are saving a
programme that will limit the storage space for any future
recording. In this instance you may save this programme,
but you should also go to the Planned Recordings menu
to make sure you have enough space and if necessary
delete old recordings.
20
How to make Recordings
Your DTR will allow you to customise the way your record a programme.
Using Your DTR
In this section, we will show you just what options are available
to you. Typically you will have pressed the
button in the
Programme Guide which will have automatically
taken you to this screen, but you may also wish to set
a recording manually. If you have arrived at this screen
via the Programme Guide, simply press the
button
to accept the default settings and your recording
will be
added to the list and completed
without
further
interaction. If you wish to
set-up a manual recording via the Planned
Recordings menu, you will typically be presented with a
virtually blank screen as shown. Press the GREEN button to
continue and you will be prompted to enter the channel,
date, start and stop times. Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow
buttons to amend the detail of the selections, and the UP
and DOWN arrow buttons to move between the settings.
Finally press the
button to add the event to your
Planned Recordings list.
Instant record
If while watching a programme you decide you wish to record it, press the
button on your
remote control and hold for 3 seconds. Y­our DTR will automatically record the programme
to the end of the scheduled time and add any of that programme that exists in your review
buffer.
Editing an event
There may be an occasion where you wish to adjust the recording (event) that you are setting.
This DTR allows you to change both the start time (TIME) and the duration of a recording.
Entering a recording from the Programme Guide or manually from the Planned Recordings
menu, the highlighter will be positioned over the PROGRAMME field. Press the RIGHT arrow
button to move the highlighter over the TIME field. Use the GREEN or YELLOW buttons to
increase or decrease the start time. You can also move the highlighter to the DURATION field
again with the RIGHT arrow and use the GREEN or YELLOW buttons to increase or decrease
the recording duration. Once satisfied with your adjustments, press the
button to add
this recording to the list.
Why edit an event?
There may be occasions where multiple recordings overlap and your DTR will warn you that two
recordings collide. You may know that the programme you wish to record has moved due to an
over-run of a previous programme. Or simply, you know that the part of the programme you
are interested in starts later than the actual programme start time; for example, a football
match. Editing the timing will allow you to record programmes that would otherwise conflict
with each other and save space on your DTR for future recordings.
Your DTR is also capable of automatically adding time to a recording to guard against
programme over-run. Please refer to page 27 for more information on Guard Times.
21
Space for recordings
When you add a recording to the Planned Recordings, your DTR will
check to see if there is enough space to complete all the scheduled
recordings. If there is a risk that there is not enough space, you will
see this pop-up. You have the option to cancel the recording or
continue with the event. If you continue with the recording, you
should go to the Programme Library menu and try to clear space by
deleting programmes that you have already watched and no longer wish to keep. If you do
not make space, you may lose the end of your recording or fail to be able to record further
programmes.
Simultaneous recordings
Your DTR has two tuners which means that it is capable of
recording two different programmes at the same time. In the
event that you try to record more than two programmes at the
same time, your DTR will alert you to this overlap with the pop-up
shown.
Make
a note of this overlap and go back to the Planned Recordings
main menu. Find the programmes that overlap and look to see
if you can manually change the start times or durations of the
overlapping events to resolve the conflict. This will still enable you to record the programmes
you wish and not miss anything of significance.
Series link
Some programmes are broadcast with special tags that indicate
that the programme is part of a series. If while setting a recording
your DTR detects this tag, it will advise you with this pop-up. You
now have three options; cancel the recording (RED button), record
all programmes with that ‘Series link tag’ (GREEN button) or just that specific programme and
remove the Series link (YELLOW) button. When you go back to the Programme Guide, you
will see that a series link icon has been added to the programme name. It looks like this
Recording while Top Up TV Anytime programmes are
updating
If you have subscribed to Top Up TV Anytime, whilst automatic
Top Up TV Anytime updates are being recorded (usually at
night), your DTR will be using both tuners to record programmes
into your Top Up TV Library. If you also want to record another
programme at the same time, you may see this screen. Your DTR will tell you which Top Up
TV Anytime programmes will be affected, allowing you to choose which recording is more
important to you and which recording(s) should not to be made.

Your DTR has two tuners which means it can receive two different channels at the same time.
You can switch between these two channels by pressing 0 on your remote control. If that
channel is paused, it will automatically switch to play to allow you to watch the programme.
Furthermore, if you are watching a recorded programme, your DTR will pause that
programme and switch to the programme currently being received by one of the tuners.
Pressing 0 again will switch to the other tuner and pressing 0 again will return you to your
recorded programme and resume playback.
Watch whilst recording
This is the ability to view a programme that is currently being recorded as part of a scheduled
record or an instant record process. There are two ways to view a programme while it is being
recorded. From Planned Recordings highlight the programme you wish to watch and press
the RED button on your remote control. This will start the programme from the beginning.
You can also change channels to the one that is recording your programme and use trick
modes such as REWIND to move back through the recording to your desired point.
Pause, rewind & fast forward
These are functions that enable you to move forward or rewind
through a recording. There a nine incremental speeds for both
forward and rewind, these are x1/4 , x1/2, x1, x2, x4, x8, x16, x32
& x64.
Note: That quarter and half speed modes are only accessed from Pause mode. To enter
Pause mode, press the PAUSE button on your remote control.
Note: USB port on the product shall not be functional until this feature is available with
software update over air download.

Setting Up
From the MAIN MENU, press 4 or select Set-Up.
Use the UP and DOWN buttons to highlight the sub-menu you wish to enter and press the OK
button, or press the number button that is associated with the sub-menu.
If you have trouble scanning for channels or with any aspect of the installation, refer to page
10 for more information or check the Troubleshooting guide in this manual.
Scan for Channels
You will have performed this option automatically as
part of the installation process, but if for any reason
you wish to re-scan for new channels (if you have
moved or have a new aerial for example), make sure
that all the connections to your DTR are connected
correctly. Select Option 1 in the Set up Menu to
scan for new channels. Press the GREEN button to
start the automatic search for available channels.
To exit, press the BACK button.
Once the scan has started you can cancel it
by pressing the RED button.
You can monitor the progress of the search as your DTR first searches for digital broadcast
frequencies and then for specific programmes on those frequencies. Finally your DTR will
attempt to acquire the Top Up TV Anytime service.
When the scan is complete, the text at the bottom of the screen will say ‘Scan complete’
and the GREEN button will re-appear to enable you to re-scan if required. To exit this menu
option, press the BACK button.
Throughout the set-up menus, we will list the available settings within an option. Please
note that the DTR factory default will be UNDERLINED. If at anytime your are not sure what
setting to make, refer to the relevant page and look for the setting that is underlined.
24
Customise your DTR
Use the UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select an option and use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow
buttons to cycle around the available settings.
TV Picture format
Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons to choose
from 4:3 Letterbox (black bars top and bottom), 4:3
Centre Cut-Out (full screen, but lost picture on left
and right), 4:3 Full Frame (if your 4:3 TV supports 16:9
switching, check your TV manual) or 16:9 Widescreen
(for widescreen TVs).
TV Picture adjust horizontal and TV Picture adjust
vertical
TV SCART setting
Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons to choose from RGB (best picture), S-Video (for
specific TVs) or CVBS for all other types. See your TV manual for the best choice, it usually
depends on which socket you connect to.
Programme search
This option turns on or off the ‘Search’ facility (accessed using the RED key in the Guide) that
provides a search facility across the Programme Guide and recorded programmes. When
enabled the RED key is used to access the Search screen and the WHITE (R) key is used to record
programmes within the Guide. If disabled the RED key is also used to record programmes
within the guide.
Synopsis pop-up delay
This option allows you to either turn off the synopsis window that pops-up over the Guide
or video when a programme is selected, or to change the period that you wait for before it
appears.
Plasma blanking
This option allows you to specify a time after which the display automatically dims. This is
important as static images can damage certain screen types.
For both Radio and Plasma blanking the available settings are: OFF, 3, 5, 10, 20 (minutes)
TV Guide Type
Select whether your box should use the Freeview + guide format (8 day) or Top Up TV guide
format (14 day) TV guide.
It is strongly recommended that the main TV is connected using the SCART lead as this will
provide the best possible pictures. These instructions assume you are connected to the
main TV with a SCART lead as shown on page 6.
25
Setting Up
Select these options to move the picture generated by
the DTR either horizontally or vertically so it sits centrally on your television screen.
Customising Top Up TV Anytime
One of the great things about Top Up TV Anytime is
that you don’t have to download all the programmes
available. You can choose to record and download
only those programmes from channels you watch. So
for example, if you don’t have kids, you can save space
on your hard drive by de-selecting the kids channels,
giving you more space to download those you do
want to watch. Customising your channels is easy and
should be done to ensure you maximise the amount of
space you have available for your own recordings. This
menu presents a list of available Top Up TV Anytime
channels. Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons to
move between columns. Use the UP and DOWN arrows
to move the highlighter over a channel for activation.
Press the RED button to activate the channel.
Note the two times on the bottom of the screen.
The Top Up TV (TUTV) hours per week will change as
you activate or de-activate channels. The available
space left for personal recordings on your DTR’s hard
disk drive (storage space) is shown on the far right.
In some cases there will be insufficient free storage space in the Personal Disk Space area
to re-assign for Top Up TV Anytime use. In this case, a pop-up will be displayed as shown
to enable you to remove content from the Record Library. Use the UP and DOWN arrows to
select a programme and then delete it by pressing the RED button. Once you have created
enough space, you can activate the new channel by pressing the GREEN button. To exit this
menu press the YELLOW button.
You may attempt to activate a channel for which you do not have the right level of subscription.
If this occurs, you will be taken to the Subscription screen. Follow the steps on screen to
change your subscription.
Warnings
There are some warnings that may pop-up as a result of some of your selections / actions.
The first of these may be if you de-activate a Top Up TV Anytime channel. The warning
will inform you that if you de-activate this channel, you will no longer receive any of that
channel’s programmes and will delete any recordings made from that channel.
The second warning you may see is in activating a new channel, you may not have enough space
on your disk drive for planned recordings. The warning will advise you to review your Planned
Recordings as soon as possible. Please refer to page 20 on how to make space by deleting
unwanted recordings.
26
Recording Preferences
There are two options available to change, the guard
time and the rewind buffer size. Use the UP and DOWN
arrow buttons to move between the two options and the
LEFT and RIGHT arrows to scroll through the available
values for that option.
Recording guard time
A guard time is a small amount of time added to the
start and end of a recording to help protect against programmes starting slightly ahead of
schedule or more typically over-running their scheduled finishing time. There is obviously a
small penalty for this feature which is that you will use up more space for each recording with
a guard time set. The available settings are OFF, 1, 3 or 5 minutes. As you can see the default
setting is OFF to maximise the available disk space for recordings.
Setting Up
Pause live TV
Your DTR automatically records and buffers the channel you are currently watching. The
size of this record buffer is set to 30 minutes. This means that you can pause and rewind the
channel you are watching back by 30 minutes, or by the amount of time you have set as the
Pause live TV buffer size. As with the guard times, this obviously takes up space on your hard
disk drive for recording other programmes so if you do not use this feature you can turn it
off to increase the available space for recordings. The available settings are OFF, 15, 30, 45
or 60 minutes.
If while watching a programme you decide to record it, your DTR will use as much of the buffer
as is available to add to your recording in an attempt to record the whole of the programme
from the start.
Messages
Occasionally, events may occur that your DTR stores
for your information. For example, your DTR is capable
of having its software upgraded automatically via the
aerial. If you have any messages waiting to be read, a
small envelope icon will appear as shown. To view any
messages, select Messages from the Main Menu or Set-Up
menu. Once you have read your messages, you may
delete them by pressing the RED button.
27
Child Lock
This menu option enables you to set-up Parental
Control levels and to determine the access you and your
family have to programmes. As soon as you select this
option, you will be prompted to enter your Personal
Identification Number (PIN). The default number for this
is 0000. It is highly recommended that you change this
number as soon as possible. Once you have entered a
valid PIN you are given the option to change the PIN by
pressing the RED button and following the simple steps
on-screen.
Maximum Certificate
This sets the maximum certificate value allowed on any viewed content (live or recorded).
If at anytime a user tries to view programmes with a certificate higher than the maximum
certificate allowed, the DTR will blank the screen, mute the audio and pop-up the PIN entry
window. Unless a valid PIN is entered, the programme cannot be viewed. The available
settings are; U, PG, 12, 15, G or 18. Note that the default is 18 which means that there is no
automatic block of any content from being viewed. You should lower this to a level suitable
for the people with access to your DTR.
Note that setting a certificate does not limit the programmes that can be recorded, only what
can be viewed. This allows viewing decisions to be made when the viewer is present. This
may not be foolproof – we rely on broadcasters to rate their programmes appropriately.
Lock Period Start & Lock Period End
This allows the DTR to be locked down during the START
and END times. Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons to
amend the time in 15 minute steps. In both cases, the
default value is OFF.
Lock
Once you have set lock periods, you will have to activate
them by setting Lock on. Likewise, you can also turn lock
periods off with this option.
Channel Lock
This menu allows you to individually lock selected channels. Each time a locked channel is
selected to be watched you will be required to enter your PIN.
28
Languages
Preferred audio language
This option sets the Preferred Audio Language output. In a multi-language broadcast, your
DTR will attempt to acquire your preferred language. If your preferred language is not
available, your DTR will switch to the default language.
Preferred subtitle language
This has the same action as Preferred Language, but for Subtitles in place of the audio output
itself.
Setting Up
To select an option, use the UP or DOWN arrow
buttons. To scroll around the possible languages,
use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons. The default
Language is English and the available options are
Welsh and Gaelic.
Help
This is a high level information screen that will tell
you basic information about your DTR. If you require
further assistance please call the telephone number
shown on-screen in the Help menu which is option 6 in the Set-Up menu.
There is also an option to press the RED button for tuning information. This screen shows
the current status of the two tuners, what channel number they are currently set to and the
Strength & Quality of the signals being received. You can also change the channel a given
tuner is set to with the coloured buttons; RED & GREEN for Tuner 1 or YELLOW & BLUE for
Tuner 2.
Changing the channels that the tuners are set to may
result in you losing scheduled recordings. Please use this
screen with care or wait to be advised on how to use this
screen by one of our Customer Care Advisers.
29
Troubleshooting
Reception problems
When you purchased your DTR, your dealer should have checked your postcode to ensure
that you can receive digital terrestrial TV. If you wish to check this yourself, please look on
the internet websites:- www.freeview.co.uk or www.digitaluk.co.uk
Once you have established that your area should be able to receive digital terrestrial TV,
there are a few reasons why you may be experiencing problems.
•
Your current aerial and cabling may not be able to receive all the digital
channels due to its age and condition. Now is the time to renew them. We
recommend the use of CAI “Benchmarked” aerials. Look for the logo.
Always use good quality, double screened aerial cable. e.g. CT100 coaxial
cable.
Standard
•
In your location the digital channels may be transmitted on different frequencies to your
existing analogue signals and you may need a different type of aerial to receive them.
Check the ‘group’ of your aerial, you may need a ‘wideband’ one.
•
The new digital channels may be transmitted from a new transmitter and if this is the
case the aerial would have to be re-aligned. Alternatively, add a second aerial to your
system.
•
If you need to use a mast-head amplifier, make sure that it is a digitally compatible one
and that it is as close to the aerial as possible.
•
In some blocks of flats, filters may be in use that will interfere with digital signals. Consult
with your landlord if you have difficulties.
•
Indoor or window mounted aerials are not recommended, except in areas where the
signal is extremely strong.
•
Your aerial could be too high. Try adjusting the height of the aerial to avoid picking up
unwanted signals from other transmitters.
•
If you live near a road, the passing traffic may cause problems. Try pointing the aerial at
an upward angle over the road, this helps reduce engine interference picked up by the
aerial.
•
If you get periodic picture losses, this could be due to electrical interference picked up
in your house. This could be from a central heating thermostat, a fridge/freezer, or any
other item with a motor. Try switching these appliances off temporarily to establish what
is causing the problem. Then replace the problem item.
•
If your aerial comes into your room via an aerial connection point (socket), replace it with
a good quality shielded one. This will help prevent electrical noise entering your aerial.

Problems after installation
Not every picture or sound problem is caused by a defect in your DTR. Leads having been
accidentally pulled out or worn out batteries in the remote control can also cause impairment.
If your unit does something unexpected while you are using it, please unplug it, wait a
few seconds, plug it in again, then wait for the lights on your DTR to change to solid red
or green. If this fails to solve the problem or the following measures do not bring about
satisfactory results, please consult an authorized dealer.

Tuner conflict resolution
In some cases there may not be enough tuners for
all the functions your DTR is trying to perform, for
example if two recordings are taking place and you
try to change channels, you will see this pop-up
menu. If you really wish to change channels, go
to the Planned Recordings menu and cancel the
recording. Pressing the RED button will take you to the Planned Recordings menu.
Top Up TV Anytime conflict resolution
Watching live TV may conflict with the requirement
to record Top Up TV Anytime programmes. This may
occur if you are watching a programme when the
Top Up TV Anytime programmes start, you switch
on your DTR while Top Up TV Anytime programmes
are being recorded or you are watching a Top Up
TV Anytime programme but then try to change
channels.
In the event of a conflict, you will see this pop-up. If you press the RED button, you will
continue to record the Top Up TV Anytime programmes, however, if you press the GREEN
button the Top Up TV Anytime recordings will be abandoned and your DTR will be considered
to be in override mode.
Your DTR will remain in override mode for one hour or until it is placed in standby.
In the same way, if your DTR is trying to collect TV
listings or Top Up TV Anytime information, your
DTR will pop-up this warning. If you press the RED
button, you will continue to collect the required
information, however, if you press the GREEN button
the task will be abandoned.
By overriding this task, your DTR may fail to update the TV listings and as a consequence, may
fail to record Top Up TV Anytime programmes.
Loss of signal
If your DTR can not detect a signal, it will present this icon in the top centre of your TV screen.
Check all connections or refer to Reception Problems on page 30.
32
If your DTR fails to respond
In very exceptional circumstances, your DTR ma y not respond as expected when switching it on.
If this does happen, it is most likely to have been caused by corruption of programmes
stored on your disk. This can occasionally cause the DTR to remain in standby mode or fail
to respond to the remote control while not displaying any picture. However, normal DTR
operation can usually be restored, by performing a reset as noted below.
WARNING
Resetting your DTR can cause all saved programmes to be lost.
These steps should only be taken after carefully checking all DTR connections and ensuring
you have working batteries in your DTR remote control.
Check the display on the front panel of your DTR.
Scenario 1 – No display
• Check the mains lead is properly inserted to the back panel.
• Check the wall socket works by plugging in another appliance.
• Check the fuse in the plug. Only replace with a 5A fuse complying with BS1362.
Ask an electrician for help if you are not sure what to check.
Scenario 2 – Solid red LED and no display
Information
This means the DTR has encountered an error but it can usually be restored. The following
sequence will restore the settings of your DTR to the factory default and will retain your
saved programmes.
• Unplug the mains power or switch off your DTR at the wall socket.
• Wait 5 seconds.
• Restore the power while pressing and holding the front panel button for 5 seconds.
PLS WAIT and then REVERT will be displayed.
• Wait 45 seconds for the DTR to complete the reset procedure.
• Select the DTR input on your TV and check for picture.

This means the DTR has encountered an error and cannot be easily restored. The following
sequence will restore the settings for your DTR to the factory default and also delete all saved
programmes from the internal storage.
• Unplug the mains power or switch off your DTR at the wall socket.
• Wait 5 seconds.
• Restore the power and wait until the message ‘PLS WAIT’ disappears from the display then
press the front panel
button. Wait until ‘FORMAT’ message is displayed and then release
the button.
• Wait 45 seconds for the DTR to complete the reset procedure.

Further Connections
The scart lead allows rapid connection to your TV, in order to get you going as quickly
and easily as possible. If you should wish to adopt the more advanced connections please
purchase additional leads as explained below.
Archiving off the DTR onto a VCR or other recorder
Add a second scart lead to link the VCR SCART socket on your DTR to
the AV1/EXT1/AUX1 socket of your VCR. This connection will allow
you to archive to a permanent media. If your VCR supports auto-start
recording, then the DTR will control the VCR automatically.
Connection to a hi-fi system or home cinema unit
Use a pair of stereo coax phono leads to connect the L/R AUDIO OUT
socket on your DTR to the L/R AUDIO IN of your hi-fi or home cinema
unit, giving you higher quality sound when you use your DTR.
NOTE: Audio sockets are generally identified by colour. White for Left
and Red for Right.

Safety Information
Power cord (mains lead)
Do not place the product where a piece of furniture or other heavy object could trap the
power cord (mains lead). Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by
tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet as this could
cause a short circuit or electric shock. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords.
The power cords should be routed in such a way that they are not likely to be stepped on.
A damaged power cord can cause fire or give you an electrical shock. Check the power cord
periodically to see if it is damaged. If it is damaged, please ask an approved service agent to
replace it.
For your own safety read following instructions carefully before attempting to
connect this device to the mains. This unit is designed to operate on a 220V-240V
AC – 50Hz supply only. Connecting it to other power sources may damage it. Ensure
that the supply corresponds to the information on the rating label on the bottom
of the unit. This component system may be fitted with a non-rewireable plug. If it is
necessary to change the fuse in a non-rewireable plug, the fuse cover must be refitted.
If the fuse cover becomes lost or damaged, the plug most not be useduntil a replacement, available
fr om the manufacturer, is obtained. It is important that the colour of the replacement fuse cover
corresponds with the colour marking on the base of the plug. If the plug needs to be changed
because it is not suitable for your socket, or it becomes damaged, it should be unplugged
then cut off and the fuse removed immediately. Please dispose of the plug safely and out
of reach from children. Under no circumstance should the cut-off plug be inserted into a
mains socket outlet due to high risk of
electric shock. Then fit an appropriate
plug carefully following the wiring
instructions shown below.
Important
The wires in the mains plug should
be connected as shown in the
diagram. The colours of the wires
in the mains lead of the unit may
not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in
your plug. Connect them as follows:
• T he wire which is coloured
blue must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter ‘N’ or coloured black.
• T he wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘L’ or coloured red.
• T here should be no connection to the earth terminal of your plug.
If you use a 13 Amp (BS1363) plug, you will need a 5 Amp fuse.
• The mains plug is the disconnect device and therefore must remain readily operable.
38
How to replace the fuse
Open the fuse compartment with a blade screwdriver and replace the fuse. When replacing the
fuse in the plug, use an ASTA or BSI approved 3 Amp fuse and be sure to re-fit the fuse cover.
If the plug supplied with this equipment has a detachable fuse cover, be sure attach the fuse
cover after you change the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover. If you should lose
the fuse cover, please contact an electrical goods retailer. If in doubt, consult a competent
electrician how to replace the fuse.
This symbol means that this unit is double insulated. An earth connection is not
required.

Don’t continue to use this equipment if you have spilt liquids on 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 10cm gap all around. Take care to provide a good air circulation. Place
the apparatus in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat built-up in the apparatus.
Don’t obstruct the ventilation slots, including those underneath, with soft furnishings. The hot
air, which arises during the operation, should be ventilated with sufficient air circulation. Please
do not put the set into closed areas and do not cover it. 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.
Batteries shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or the like.
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
