A product and cart combination should be
moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force
and uneven surfaces may cause the product
and cart combination to overturn.
The lightning flash with arrow head symbol,
within an equilateral triangle, is intended to
alert the user to the presence of uninsulated
"dangerous voltage" within the product's
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude
to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to
the presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the product.
***NOTE: Connect and apply power only after all other connections are made.***

11. Power Sources: This product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the
type of power supplied to your home, consult your product dealer or local power company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
12. Grounding or Polarization: This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug. Alternate Warnings – If this product is equipped with a three-wire grounding- type plug, a plug having a third
(grounding) pin, the plug will only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the
outlet, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
13. Outdoor Antenna Grounding: If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
14. Power-Cord Protection: Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or
against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
15. Lightning: For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and
power-line surges.
16. Power Lines: An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines, other electric light or power circuits,
where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them may be fatal.
17. Overloading: Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric
shock.
18. Object and Liquid Entry: Never push objects of any kind into this product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or
short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.
19. Servicing: Do not attempt to service this product yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
20. Damage Requiring Service: Unplug this product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
a) When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
b) If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the product,
c) If the product has been exposed to rain or water,
d) If the product does not operate normally by following the operating instructions.
Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage
and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the product to its normal operation, e. If the product has been
dropped or damaged in any way, and f. When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance—this indicates a need for service.
21. Replacement Parts: When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutes may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.
22. Safety Check: Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that
the product is in proper operating condition.
23. Wall or Ceiling Mounting: The product should be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
24. Heat: The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers)
that produce heat.

1. Ensure power to the MEQ1000 is off.
2. Gently slide the SDM1000 Satellite Demodulator Module
into one of the open input module bays in the rear of the
MEQ1000.
3. Make sure the SDM1000 is inserted all the way into the
MEQ1000. You will kow it is inserted all the when when the
outer lip of the SDM1000 is flush against the rear wall of
the MEQ1000.
4. Use one of the encolsed fastening screws to secure the
SDM1000 from coming loose from the MEQ1000.
5. Connect all cables to be input into the SDM1000 and
output from the MEQ1000.
6. Once SDM1000 is inserted into the MEQ1000 and all
cables are securely conencted, power up the MEQ1000 by
inserting the Power Cord into an electrical wall outlet.
DO NOT INSERT THIS ENCODER WITH POWER
APPLIED TO THE MEQ1000 CHASSIS.
RESULTING DAMAGE WILL NOT BE COVERED
BY THE LIMITED WARRANTY.
Cable the inputs appropriately (see the Rear Panel Connections section for details).

IMPORTANT NOTES
Notes
1. If the front panel display shows INVALID VIDEO, the incoming video is not correct for the input type and resolution
settings. If the front panel display shows INVALID AUDIO, the HDMI embedded audio source is not available or not PCM
(uncompressed).
2. This encoder will only support the specific video resolutions outlined in the Specifications table.
3. This encoder does not support HDMI copy protection (HDCP). All HDMI sources must be un-encrypted.
4. Composite video is supported - use the Component Y (greencolored) input connector.
5. Closed-captioning data is automatically extracted when the encoder is in Composite mode. All other modes require a
captioned composite video source input to the Caption connector.
6. Firmware updates may be required for MEQ1000 or EH24 chassis. MEQ1000s must be updated to v1.4 or later. EH24s
