Welcome Message
Thank you for choosing a beyonwiz DP-S1, the epicentre of your home entertainment network.
The DP-S1 supports all the features of a conventional digital broadcasting receiver or STB (Set-Top Box) and PVR (Personal Video Recorder). As
well as the dual DVB-T digital tuners, the DP-S1 also enables you to listen to or watch multimedia content from:

the internal DVD ODD (Optical Disk Drive),

storage devices attached to the integrated USB (Universal Serial Bus) connectors,

the integrated CF card slot,

the integrated SD/MMC/Memory Stick port,

network devices from your PC, home network and/or the Internet.
You can play almost any multimedia content from any connected storage device. With a DP-S1, you don’t have to bring your PC to your living
room to enjoy your PC or Internet based content on the big screen. You can be free to share your valuable time and experience with your family.
To enjoy the newest features available on your DP-S1, make sure that the latest firmware is installed.
Note that with new firmware some features, which are not described in this manual, may be added and
some features described in this manual may be altered or removed. These changes are usually made
to give you the best performance and user experience.

5. STB & PVR Function
The DP-S1 supports various ways of enjoying multimedia content.
These functions are divided into three parts:
(i) STB (Set-top Box) and PVR (Personal Video Recorder) functions,
(ii) file playback functions, including playback of programs recorded
with the PVR function, and
(iii) internet services (not yet active).
This chapter describes the STB and PVR functions. Now that your DPS1 is set up (see Chapter 4 “Quick Setup”), your unit will automatically
start up in this mode. If you are using the DP-S1 in another operating
mode, you can return to the STB/PVR mode by pressing the LIVE
button on the remote control.
If the TV picture appears to be showing in the wrong aspect ratio, press
the ZOOM button to swap between 16:9 and 4:3 modes.

appear in the service list.
You can watch and enable the PVR
functions for external A/V signals by selecting the 950 or 951 services.
The service list window is titled “TV Service” or “Radio Service”,

You can set the DP-S1 to automatically record programs by setting
timers. The timer function can also be used to automatically change
service in order to view an important program, or to transmit the
picture to an external recording device such as a VCR (Video Cassette
Recorder). There are two methods of creating timers, as follows;

via Timer List: requires the recording details to be individually set.

via EPG (Electronic Program Guide): sets the recording details
automatically.
This section explains the Timer List method. The EPG method will be
