4.1 About this User’s Manual
Please note that for reasons of space this manual contains a number of
abbreviations (eg. RCU, EPG, CH, etc.). These abbreviations are listed on the
inside front cover (next to the diagrams of the Remote Control Unit (RCU))
This Users’s Manual provides information on the various components and
functions of the VP2002 and how to use them. The manual does not deal
extensively with the hardware installation of the system in your vehicle. This
should always be carried out by qualified personnel (A brief description of the
hardware installation and settings is given in appendix I).
4.2 How to use the Manual
The Manual is based on the buttons on the RCU. The function(s) of each
button is explained in detail in the relevant sections. An index of functions with
corresponding buttons is given in section 2 ‘Knowing the parts’.
All functions of the VP2002 can be initiated using the RCU (Remote Control Unit).
The VP2002 makes use of user-friendly on-screen displays and menus. These
displays and menus will guide you through installation (if necessary), channel
organizing, viewing and many other functions.
If at any time when using the menus you want to return to normal TV mode,
press the Exit button (repeatedly if necessary).
Please be aware that new software may change the functionality of the VP2002.
