Useful features
This DVD Video recorder records high quality images to rapid
random access capable HDD (Hard disk drive) or DVD-RAM. This
has resulted in many new features that out perform older tape
formats. The following information summarizes a few of these
features.
Instant recording
You no longer need to search for empty disc space. By pressing the
recording button, the unit finds available recording space and begins
recording right away. There is no need to worry about overwriting
already recorded content.
TV Guide On ScreenTM system
The TV Guide On Screen system provides a handy electronic
program guide (EPG) for checking what’s on. Setting up to record a
broadcast is easy too. Simply select the desired program from the
displayed list. You can also search for desired programs
alphabetically or by displaying only the programs in a certain
category.
≥TV Guide On Screen is available in the continental United States.
In Canada, however, it is under development and may not function
properly.
HDD recording
You can keep on recording your favorite programmes to an internal
HDD that is able to record up to 213 hours when using EP (8 Hour)
mode.
You can also high speed transfer (dub) your favorite programmes to
DVD-RAM or DVD-R and create a backup disc.
Instant play
There is no need to rewind or search forward. Direct Navigator
guides you to the beginning of the recorded video immediately.
Chasing playback
There is no need to wait until recording is
complete. Without stopping recording,
you can play the video currently being
recorded from its beginning.
Simultaneous Recording
and Playback
While recording, you can play another
video program that was recorded
previously.
Time Slip
During play and also while recording, you
can jump to the scene you wish to view
by specifying the skip time.

∫ Should I use the AUDIO/VIDEO OUT terminal or
the RF OUT terminal?
If your cable TV box/satellite receiver has both AUDIO/VIDEO OUT
terminals and RF OUT terminals, we recommend connecting the
AUDIO/VIDEO OUT terminal with the unit’s L3 terminal. Using this
connection provides better picture quality.
≥The S-VIDEO terminal achieves a more vivid picture than the
VIDEO terminal.
Setting the IR Blaster
Place the IR Blaster in front of the signal sensor of the cable TV
box.
N If necessary, use the double sided adhesive tape (included) to
secure the IR Blaster to a flat surface.
M Read the cable TV box operating instructions regarding
positioning of the signal sensor.
O e.g. Television stand surface
Q If you peel off the adhesive tape, the
surface may become damaged.
Once you have confirmed the cable TV
box is operating correctly, secure it by
attaching the adhesive tape.

∫ Handling precautions
≥Do not attach labels or stickers to discs. (This may cause disc
warping and un-balanced rotation, rendering it unusable.)
≥Do not write on the label side with a ball-point pen or other writing
instrument.
≥Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzine, thinner, static
electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
≥Do not use scratch-proof protectors or covers.
≥Do not use the following discs:
–Discs with exposed adhesive from removed stickers or labels
(rented discs, etc).
–Discs that are badly warped or cracked.
–Irregularly shaped discs, such as heart
shapes.
≥Do not place in the following areas:
–In direct sunlight.
–In very dusty or humid areas.
–Near a heater.
HDD (Hard disk drive) handling care
The HDD is a high precision recording instrument and because of its
long recording capability and high speed operation it is a very
special device that is easily susceptible to damage.
As a basic rule, save important video content to a DVD disc as
backup.
∫ The HDD is a device that is not built to withstand
vibration/shock or dust
Depending on the setup environment and handling of the HDD some
content may become damaged and play and recording may no
longer be possible. Especially during operation, do not subject the
unit to any vibration, shock, or remove the AC power plug from the
household AC outlet. In the event of a power failure the content,
during recording or play, may be damaged.
∫ The HDD is a temporary storage device
The HDD is not an everlasting storage device for recorded content.
Use the HDD as a temporary storage place for viewing once, editing,
or for saving to a DVD disc.
∫ Immediately save (backup) all content as soon
as you feel there may be problem with the HDD
If there is an irregularity within the HDD, strange sounds or problems
with picture (block noise, etc.) may result. Using the HDD in this
condition may worsen the problem and in the worst case the HDD
may no longer become usable. As soon as you notice this type of
problem, save all content to the DVD disc.
Recorded content (data) on an HDD that has become unusable is
unrecoverable.
∫ Setup precautions
≥Do not place in an enclosed area so the rear cooling fan
and the cooling vents on the side are covered up.
≥Place the unit on a surface that is flat and not subject to
vibration or impact.
≥Do not place on anything that
generates heat like a video cassette
This unit
recorder, etc.
≥Do not place in an area often subject to
VCR
temperature changes.
≥Place in an area where condensation does not occur.
Condensation is a phenomenon where moisture forms on a
cold surface when there is an extreme change in temperature.
Condensation may cause internal damage to the unit.
Getting started
7305en.book 15 ページ
≥Conditions where condensation may occur
–When there is an extreme change in temperature (moving
from a very hot location to a very cold location, or vice versa,
or when subjected to an air conditioner or when cooled air
directly impacts the unit.) When the HDD (warms during
operation) is subjected to cold air, condensation may form on
the inside of the HDD and may cause damage to the HDD
heads, etc.
–When there is high humidity or a lot of steam in the room.
–During the rainy season.
≥In the above situation, without turning the unit on, let the unit
adjust to the room temperature and wait 2–3 hours until
condensation is gone.
∫ Cigarette smoke, etc. causes malfunction or
breakdown
The unit may breakdown if cigarette smoke or bug spray/vapor,
etc. gets inside the unit.
∫ While operating
≥Do not move the unit or subject to vibration or impact. (The
HDD may become damaged.)
≥Do not remove the AC power plug from the household AC
outlet, or flip the power breaker switch.
While the unit is on, the HDD is rotating at high speed. Sound or
movement due to rotation is normal.
∫ When moving the unit
1 Turn the unit off. (Wait until “BYE” disappears from the
display.)
2 Remove the AC power plug from the household AC outlet.
3 Move only after the unit has come to a complete stop (approx.
2 minutes) in order to avoid subjecting to vibration and shock.
(Even after turning the unit off, the HDD continues operating
for a short time.)
∫ HDD recording time remaining
This unit records using a VBR (Variable bit rate) data compression
system to vary recorded data segments to match video data
segments which may cause differences in the displayed amount of
time and space remaining for recording.
If the remaining amount of time is insufficient, erase any unwanted
titles to create enough space before you start recording. (Erasing a
play list will not increase the amount of time.)
∫ When “HDD SLP (SLEEP)” appears in the display
The HDD has automatically gone into SLEEP mode in order to
extend the life of the HDD.
≥Press [HDD] to activate.
≥While in SLEEP mode play or recording may not begin right away
because the HDD takes time to be re-activated.
≥If there is no disc in the unit, the HDD will go into SLEEP mode
after there has been no operation for 30 minutes or longer. When
not using the unit, we recommend removing the disc.
∫ Indemnity concerning recorded content
Panasonic does not accept any responsibility for damages
directly or indirectly due to any type of problems that result in loss
of recording or edited content (data), and does not guarantee any
content if recording or editing does not work properly. Likewise,
the above also applies in the case any type of repair is made to
the unit (including any other non-HDD related component).

Reference
Glossary
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM compatible recorders and discs.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default
audio.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to
the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through your television’s
speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this unit can then
only output the front two channels.
Drive
In this paticular unit, this refers to the hard disk (HDD) and DVD.
These perform the reading and writing of data.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression
means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds.
This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialog clearly.
Film and video
DVD-Video are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film generally
being 24 frames per second.
Video is 60 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalize
DVD-R on this unit.
You cannot record onto or edit finalized discs.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format the HDD and DVD-RAM on this unit.
Formatting erases irrevocably all recordings on the disc.

Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see
on your television. Each frame consists of two fields.
u
r
Frame
Field
Field
≥A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
HDD (Hard disk drive)
This is a mass data storage device used in computers, etc. A disk
with a surface that has been treated with magnetic fluid is spun and
a magnetic head is brought in close proximity to facilitate the reading
and writing of large amounts of data at high speed.
LPCM (Linear PCM)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs. LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to
approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of
audio quality. You can play MP3 you have recorded onto CD-R and
CD-RW.
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images
often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of
picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan&Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture fills
the screen.
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture itself
appears in an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus. (This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and
1.1.)
Progressive/Interlace
NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (I) scan lines,
whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines.
This is called 480P.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
VBR (Variable bitrate)
This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate
according to video signal.
Enter the code with the numbered buttons.

do not solve the problem, refer to the “Customer Services Directory” on page 52 if you reside in the U.S.A., or refer to the “Product information” on
page 48 if you reside in Canada.
The following do not indicate a problem with this unit:
≥Regular disc rotating sounds. The sound of disc rotating may
become louder especially when finalizing a DVD-R.
≥Poor reception due to atmospheric conditions.
≥Image disturbance during search.
≥Interruptions in reception due to periodic satellite broadcasting
breaks.
≥A sound is heard when the HDD goes into SLEEP mode, or
operations are slow to respond in SLEEP mode.
Power
Page
No power.
≥Insert the AC power supply cord securely into a known active AC outlet.

“12:00” is flashing on the unit’s
display.
≥Set the clock.
11
Compared to the actual
recorded time, the remaining
time displayed is less.
≥The displayed recording/play time is converted from the number of frames at 29.97 frames
(equal to 0.999 seconds) to one second. There will be a slight difference between the time
displayed and the actual elapsed time (e.g., actual one-hour elapsed time may display as
approximately 59 minutes 56 seconds). This does not affect the recording.
—
The time recorded on the disc
and the available time shown
do not add up.
The play time shown for MP3
does not agree with the actual
time.
≥Times shown may disagree with actual times.
≥More disc space than the actual recording time is used after recording or editing the DVD-R
200 times or more.
≥While searching, the elapsed time may not display correctly.
≥Even if you erase recorded content from the DVD-R, there is no increase in disc space.
—
—
Television reception worsens
after connecting the unit.
≥This can occur because the signals are being divided between the unit and other equipment.
It can be solved by using a signal booster, available from audio-visual suppliers.
—
Status messages do not appear.
≥Select “Automatic” in “Status Messages” in the SETUP menu.

“Progressive” in the Video menu to “OFF”.
≥Check the settings for “TV Type”, “4:3 TV Settings for DVD-Video” or “4:3 TV Settings for
DVD-RAM” in the SETUP menu.
There is a lot of after-image
when playing video.
≥Change the settings for “3D NR”, and “Integrated DNR” to “0” or turn “MPEG-DNR” off if it is
on.
29
When playing DVD-Video using
progressive output, one part of
the picture momentarily
appears to be doubled up.
≥Set “Progressive” in the Video menu to “OFF”. This problem is caused by the editing method
or material used on DVD-Video, but should be corrected if you use interlace output.
29
There is no apparent change in
picture quality when adjusted
with the Video menu in the onscreen menus.
≥The effect is less perceivable with some types of video.
—
The images from this unit do
not appear on the television.
≥Make sure that the television is connected to the VIDEO OUT terminal, S-VIDEO OUT
terminal or COMPONENT VIDEO OUT terminals on this unit.
≥Make sure that the television’s input setting (e.g., VIDEO 1) is correct.

TV GUIDE On Screen System
Step 1: Introduction To the TV Guide On Screen System
This DVD Recorder features the TV Guide On Screen system that provides an 8-day rolling list
of TV programs available in your area. Use the TV Guide On Screen system to choose TV
programs and simplify the recording of your favorite TV shows. Best of all this service is free!
Please Note: If you receive your programming solely from a satellite service, the program guide
in this unit will not receive program listings or channel information. Without this information,
program based recordings cannot be made. However, timer recordings can be made if manually
entered.
Step 2: Setting up the TV Guide On Screen System
After connecting your DVD Recorder as described on page xx, we now need to enter some
information about how you receive TV broadcasts. If further assistance is needed contact
Panasonic’s Customer Call Center at 1-800-211-PANA (7262).
1. A few moments after you turn the unit on for the first time a Welcome Screen will
introduce you with the TV Guide On Screen system. (We strongly recommend using this
operating manual together with the on screen information.) Press the “ENTER” key on
the remote to proceed.
2
2. Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys on the remote, select the country you live in and press
the “ENTER” key to continue.
3. Using either the numeric keypad or the UP/DOWN arrow keys on the remote, enter your
zip code. Press the “ENTER” key to continue.
3
4. If you receive TV programming via cable TV, select, “Yes” using the UP/DOWN arrow
keys on the remote and press “ENTER.” If you use a roof top antenna, select “No”,
press the “ENTER” key and proceed to Step 11.
5. If your local cable company requires you to use a cable box select “Yes” using the UP/
DOWN arrow keys, press “ENTER” and proceed to the next step. If you are not required
to use a cable box, select “No” then press “ENTER” and proceed to Step 11.
6. If you’re using a cable box you’ll now be asked a series of questions that will set up the
IR Blaster. The IR Blaster is a device that will allow your DVD recorder to communicate
with your cable box. Press the “ENTER” key to continue.
4
7. Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys please select the channel your cable box outputs a
signal on. If your cable box offers Audio/Video outputs select “Video 1”for optimum
video quality. For cable boxes without Audio/Video outputs, select the appropriate
channel to receive the cable box signal. Press the “ENTER” key to proceed.
8. Verify that the IR Blaster is connected and positioned properly. This device allows your
DVD Recorder to communicate with your cable box. It’s very important that the IR
Blaster is connected properly.
5
9. Select the brand of cable box you have, and press “ENTER.”.
10. We’ll now begin trying various IR codes to see which one communicates properly with
your cable box. It’s quite common that this phase of the setup may have to be repeated
numerous times. Once your cable box properly responds to the DVD Recorder, select
“Yes” using the UP/DOWN arrow keys and press “ENTER.”
11. The confirmation screen should now be displaying all of the setting made. These include
your zip code, how you receive TV programming, and information about your cable box
(if one is being used.) If all is correct, select “Yes” using the UP/DOWN arrow keys and
press “Enter.”
6
12. Once at least 24 hours has passed since the setup information was entered, you're ready to
perform the final step of the installation procedure. When the unit is powered up you'll
see a screen asking you to select the proper channel line-up. A channel line-up is the
numerical designations for each station your cable company caries. In most cases you'll
have at least two choices, though it's not uncommon for larger cities to offer several. It's
important to realize that only one will be correct. It's helpful at this point to have a
listing of the channels your cable company offers. You'll select the channel line-up by
verifying that a particular network is on the specified channel. Select the proper line-up,
press enter and begin to enjoy the TV Guide On Screen system!
In Case of a Problem
If you were unable to successfully configure the unit, Please contact our Call Center at 1-800211-PANA (7262). One of our representatives will be happy to assist you!
Step 3: How The TV Guide On Screen System Operates
Once you’ve connected and configured the unit, the TV Guide On Screen system now needs to
capture the channel lineup and program data. This will only take place when the unit is placed
into the “STANDBY” mode. While the unit is ON, Press the “Power” button to place the unit in
“STANDBY” mode. The front panel display will briefly display “Bye” and the time will be
displayed. It’s VERY important, especially during the first 7 days of use, that the unit is placed
into standby mode when you aren’t using it. If the unit is left “ON” continuously, the Channel
Guide data cannot be captured.
•
•
•
Following the initial installation, it is strongly recommended that you wait at
least 24 hours before using the unit. No damage will occur if the unit is used
sooner, but the channel and program information may be incomplete.
In order for the TV Guide On Screen system to capture channel and program data
your DVD Recorder must be connected to either cable TV or a rooftop antenna.
If a cable box is used, make sure the IR blaster is properly installed and the cable
box is turned on. Even when you aren’t watching TV the cable box must be
turned on, otherwise program data will not be captured.
Some cable boxes may offer a switched AC plug so that your cable box remote
control can also turn your TV on and off. Utilizing this feature (turning the cable
box off) will prevent channel guide Data from being captured.
7
•
•
The TV Guide On Screen system was designed such that all TV viewing would
be done using your DVD Recorder to select the channels. When a cable box is
used, and the DVD Recorder is placed in the standby mode, the DVD Recorder
will cause the cable box to automatically scan channels to search for program
data. In this situation, if the cable box were also connected directly to the TV, it
would be impossible to view one channel continuously.
Program data in the TV Guide On Screen system may be incomplete due to the
following:
1. The unit is unplugged and loss of power occurs.
2. If a cable box is used and the cable box was turned off or if a cable signal
outage occurred.
A loss of program data due to one of the above conditions would not indicate a
technical problem with your unit. Once the power and signal is restored the unit
will resume to capture program data when in the standby mode.

6. Q: Why does it take 24 hours for the TV Guide On Screen system to be ready for use?
Answer: In order for the TV Guide On Screen system to receive lineup and listings data it must have
access to the tuner. This occurs when the user is not watching the TV Guide On Screen device. The system
could be ready in less than 24 hours if the TV Guide On Screen device is turned off for several consecutive
hours immediately after initial setup. However, to insure that all complete data is captured, a 24-hour
waiting period is recommended.
7. Q: I completed the initial set-up for my TV Guide On Screen hours ago, but when I try to turn it
on, a screen message tells me to input the correct set-up information. What’s wrong?
Answer: There are three possibilities:
1) Initial set-up was done incorrectly. (i.e.: The user entered wrong country, ZIP/postal code or cable
box information.)
2) The TV Guide On Screen data was temporarily unavailable in your area (Wait another 24 hours or Redo set-up).
3) The cable box was turned OFF. The TV Guide On Screen device must be OFF and the cable box
powered ON.
8. Q: I had a power outage. Do I need to go through initial setup of the TV Guide On Screen system

Screen system requires your unit to be placed in the Standby mode for the first 24 hours.
12. Q: If I incorrectly entered setup data, was unable to complete the initial
setup or if I move, how can the settings be changed?
Answer: In any of the above cases you’ll need to reset the unit to the factory default settings.
Turn the unit “ON” and allow about 30 seconds for the unit to boot up. Next, if the Channel Guide
screen appears, press the “TV Guide” button on the remote so that you are viewing a TV

Channel Lineups and Listings
1. Q: I’ve noticed that certain local channels are not displayed in the program
guide, why?
Answer: The actual channels your TV Guide On Screen System displays is determined by
market penetration in your local area. In addition, data for local programming which is not
provided to TV Guide’s data distribution network would also not be available. Please refer to the
section “adding local channels” in the xx section.
2. Q: Why do some or all of the channels display “No Listing?”
Answer: There are several possibilities.
For a newly installed unit, the TV Guide On Screen system may have not been given enough
time to download the initial data. This procedure can only occur when the unit is in Standby
mode for a period of 24 hours. The full procedure is explained in the installation section of this
manual. Once the procedure takes place the phrase “No Listings“ will be replaced with program
information.
Other conditions that can result in partial or a total loss of program data include:
1)
The channel(s) in question were recently turned ON (in the Channel Editor screen) and TV
Guide On Screen has yet to receive channel data for this channel.
2)
After completing the initial set-up, the first data download of the day was interrupted when
the DVD recorder was turned on.
3)
After completing the initial set-up, the first data download of the day was interrupted by a
scheduled recording. (This only applies to installations using a cable box.)
16
4)
The TV was left powered ON for an extended period of time and the TV Guide On Screen
system was unable to receive program data.
5)
During the data download the station from which data is downloaded had an unscheduled
outage.
6)
If using an off-air antenna, marginal poor reception can cause some of the data to be
missed.
7)
If using a cable box, it was accidently turned off. In installations using a cable box, the
box MUST be left on continuously.
3. Q: How long are the “data transmissions?”
Answer: TV Guide On Screen data is transmitted at varying times, usually four times per day,
and the cycles last approximately three (3) hours. The TV Guide On Screen system only requires
one transmission a day to maintain up-to-date program listings. Because the TV Guide On
Screen device must be powered off in order to receive new information, multiple transmissions
are conveniently scheduled early to mid-morning and early afternoon hours.
5. Q: How often do host transmissions take place?
Answer: Channel and setup data used to create the channel lineup is transmitted continuously,
24 hours a day - 7 days a week. Program information that contains details about each program
is usually transmitted four times a day.
6. Q: How do I add or delete a channel? Can the order in which a channel is
displayed be changed?
Answer: Yes. Refer to the “Change Channel Display or Channel Editor” section.
7. Q: I’m not able to receive some channels displayed on the TV Guide On Screen
listing. Why is that? Does this indicate a problem with my equipment?
Answer: Not necessarily. Cable TV subscribers receive channel data for all available channels
your cable TV provider offers. In order to view all the channels, you’d also have to subscribe to all
the channels. If you are connected to an off-air antenna the channel data you receive often
represents a viewing area larger than you would typically be able to receive. Your location, the
type of TV antenna you are using and you distance from each stations transmitting antenna will
all determine which channels are viewable from your location. Once you’ve determined which
channels can be received, all other can be removed from the TV Guide On Screen listing. See
the xx section for instructions on how to remove channels.
8. Q: Why doesn’t my favorite channel have more information in the Information
Box or Expanded Information Box?
Answer: The hardware that makes TV Guide On Screen possible is a computer chip which has
limited storage space. Factors used in determining which programs display detailed program
information are number of channels turned ON and availability of descriptions.
9. Q: Why are some of my off-air or cable channels not listed on the “CHANNEL
EDITOR” screen?
Answer: Presently, TV Guide On Screen does not list all channels in any given broadcast area.
As a result, channels are selected primarily on a “majority rules” basis. Channels with the highest
potential viewership are given top priority. Availability of program listings is another
consideration.
11. Q: Why are some of my channels listed on the wrong number?
Answer: There are two possibilities:
1. Data entered into the initial set-up screen was done incorrectly. (i.e. The user entered wrong
ZIP/postal code or selected incorrect channel map.) On the TV Guide On Screen Main
17
Menu Bar, highlight Setup and choose “Change system settings”. Verify the data you
entered is correct.
2. The cable company may have recently changed their channel lineup and has not yet informed
industry sources of the changes. Use the Channel Editor feature to make changes.
12. Q: Why doesn’t the program highlighted match up with the video window on
my TV screen?
Answer: There are four possibilities:
1)
The data entered during the installation setup was incorrect or the channel lineup you
selected was incorrect.
2)
The station in question may have made recent program schedule changes and the TV
Guide On Screen system has not yet been updated.
13. Q: On certain channels I receive two stations; morning and evening programs
differe – why is that?
Answer: Such situations occur more frequently on cable TV. “Split” channels occur when the
cable provider may not have an adequate number of open channels and chooses to switch the
channel line to better suit the subscribers viewing habits. When a “Split” channel occurs, program
data for only one channel is usually provided.
Operations
1. Q: When I’m using my TV Guide On Screen to channel surf, my cable box

What’s wrong?
Answer: There are four possibilities:

set-up. On the TV Guide On Screen Main Menu Bar, highlight Setup and choose “Change
