SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This STB has been manufactured to satisfy international safety standards.
Please read the following recommended safety precautions carefully.
AC 100-240V~, 50/60Hz
OVERLOADING:
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or adapters
as this can result in fire or electrical shock.
LIQUIDS:
Keep liquids away from the STB.
CLEANING:
Before cleaning, disconnect the STB from the wall socket.
Use a cloth lightly dampened with water(no solvents) to
clean the exterior.
VENTILATION:
Do not block the STB ventilation holes. Ensure that free airflow
is maintained around the STB. Never store the STB where it is
exposed to direct sunlight or near heating equipment e.g. a
radiator.
Never stack other electronic equipment on top of the STB.
Place the STB at least 30mm from the wall.
ATTACHMENTS:
Do not use any attachment that is not recommended by the
manufacturer; it may cause a hazard or damage the equipment.
CONNECTION TO THE SATELLITE DISH LNB:
The LNB connector cable has voltage in its center core. It is
therefore recommended that the STB be disconnected from
the mains power before connecting or disconnecting this cable.
FAILURE TO DO SO COULD DAMAGE THE LNB.
SERVICING:
Do not attempt to service this product yourself.
Any attempt to do so will make the warranty invalid.
Refer all servicing to a qualified service agent.
LIGHTNING:
If the STB is installed in an area subject to intense lightning
activity, protection devices for the STB mains connector and
modem telephone line are essential.
The individual manufacturer’s instruction for safeguarding other
equipment, such as TV set, Hi-Fi, etc., connected to the STB must
also be followed during lightning storms.
GROUNDING:
The ground of the LNB cable must be directly connected to the
system ground for the satellite dish.
The grounding system must comply with local regulations
