These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference with radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception (which you can determine by turning the equipment off and on), you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: Change the position of the Satellite Receiver with respect to the radio or television equipment that is receiving the interference. Move the Satellite Receiver away from the equipment that is receiving the interference. Plug the Satellite Receiver into a different outlet so that the Satellite Receiver and the equipment receiving the interference are on different branch circuits. Shielded cables and I/O cords must be used for this equipment to comply with the relevant FCC regulations. Changes or modifications not expressly approved in writing by Sony Electronics, Inc., void the user’s authority to operate this equipment. If these measures do not eliminate the interference, you should consult your Satellite Receiver dealer or an experienced radio/ television technician for additional suggestions. In addition, you may find the following booklet prepared by the FCC helpful: “How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 20402 Stock No. 004-000-00345-4.
