SATELLITE RECEIVER OVERVIEW
This section gives you an overview of your Bell ExpressVu satellite TV receiver system.
SATELLITE RECEIVER
This receiver is a dual-tuner satellite receiver that allows you to watch different programs
in two locations:
• Nearby HDTV (TV1) - Programming from the receiver is delivered to the nearby
HDTV using short audio/video cables.
• Remote TV(s) (TV2) - Programming from the receiver is delivered to the remote
TV(s) using existing in-home coaxial cable.
REMOTE CONTROLS
Two remote controls come with your receiver:
• Remote Control 1 - An Infrared (IR) remote to control programming for the nearby
HDTV (TV1). This remote is labeled with a green number 1, which matches similar
markings on the receiver output connections and the menus for the nearby HDTV.
• Remote Control 2 - An Ultra-High Frequency Pro (UHF Pro) remote to control
programming to a remote TV (TV2). This remote is labeled with blue number 2,
which matches the similar markings on the receiver output connections and the menus
for the remote TV.

Single And Dual Modes

SINGLE AND DUAL MODES
Your Bell ExpressVu satellite receiver includes two modes of operation: Single and
Dual. These modes increase your entertainment options because you’ll be able to choose
how you watch and record your favourite programs.
SINGLE MODE
Single Mode provides dual-tuner receiver features—like Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and the
ability to watch one live program while recording another—to all connected TVs.
Single Mode delivers the same programming to all of the TVs connected to the satellite
receiver and allows this programming to be controlled by either remote control. The
format of the programming shown on the remote TV(s) is in standard definition (SD)
and high definition (HD) is shown only on the nearby HDTV. You can tell you are in
Single Mode because the Single front panel indicator will light and the menus and other
screens will display Single Mode (as shown below).

DUAL MODE
While in Dual Mode, you can use this dual-tuner satellite receiver to watch different
programming in two separate locations:
• Nearby HDTV - Programming from the receiver is delivered to the HDTV near the
receiver using short audio/video cables and is controlled using Remote Control 1. The
HDTV is also referred to as “TV1.”
• Remote TV - Programming from the receiver is delivered to a TV located in another
room using existing in-home coaxial cable and is controlled using Remote Control 2.
The video displayed on the remote TV is always in SD. The Remote TV is also
referred to as “TV2.”
You can tell your receiver is in Dual Mode because the Dual front panel indicator will
light and the menu and other screens will display Dual Mode (as shown below).

REMOTE CONTROL
The two remote controls give you easy access to all the features of your satellite
receiver. You can set up each remote to control the satellite receiver and up to three
other devices (see page 10-6). These devices can be a TV, a VCR or DVD player, and a
third device.
This section describes how to use the various features on the two types of remote
controls that were delivered with your satellite TV system.
TYPES OF REMOTE CONTROLS
Remote Control 1 uses infrared (IR) light
signals to:
• Control TV1 menus for the nearby
HDTV in Dual Mode.
• Control the satellite receiver in
Single Mode.
Remote Control 2 uses UHF Pro
signals to:
• Control TV2 menus for the remote TVs
in Dual Mode.
• Control the satellite receiver in
Single Mode.
IR signals travel only short distances (40
feet or less), and cannot go through walls or
other solid objects.You must point the
remote control directly at the device, with
no objects blocking the line of sight.
UHF Pro signals travel long distances and
go through walls and other solid objects.
Remote Control 1 uses IR signals to control
both the receiver and other devices that the
remote is programmed to control.
This remote control is identified by the
green number 1 at the bottom of the remote
control.
To use Remote Control 2 to control the
receiver, you must attach the UHF antenna
to the receiver back panel (see page 2-7).
Remote Control 2 uses IR signals to control
other devices that the remote is
programmed to control. You must point the
remote control directly at these devices,
with no objects blocking the line of sight.
This remote control is identified by the blue
number 2 at the bottom of the remote
control.

REMOTE CONTROL BATTERIES
The remote control comes with AAA batteries.
When you replace old batteries, you should replace
all of the batteries. Use batteries of the same kind,
for example, alkaline or carbon zinc. Don’t mix
batteries of different kinds. Alkaline batteries
last longer.
1. Press down on the top of the battery cover and
slide the cover off.
2. Take out all of the old batteries.
3. Put the new batteries in. Make sure you match
the plus (“+”) ends with the plus markings on the
battery case.
4. Slide the cover back into place.
LOW BATTERY WARNING
When you see a low battery warning message on your screen below the Program Banner,
the batteries in your remote control are weak and need to be replaced.
ATTACH THE REMOTE ANTENNA
You need to attach the UHF remote antenna to the receiver's back panel Remote Antenna
input so you can use your UHF Pro Remote Control 2. If you don’t attach the UHF
antenna, you cannot use the remote to control the receiver. See Adjusting the Remote
Antenna on page 10-4 for more detailed information about improving the performance
of your UHF Pro remote control.

TIPS
• You can use the Front Panel Locks to prevent the mode from being changed
accidentally. See page 6-8 for instructions.
• The only way to turn off the TV2 outputs is by using POWER on Remote Control 2.
• In Dual Mode, Remote Control 1 is used to control TV1 menus on the nearby HDTV.
Remote Control 2 is used to control TV2 menus on the remote TV(s).
• If you do not do anything in a menu for several minutes, the menu automatically
closes. This will discard any changes you made, and display the program you were
watching.
• Remote Control 2 requires that you attach the UHF Remote Antenna. See page 2-7
for details.
QUESTIONS
• Why put the receiver in Single Mode? When the receiver is in Single Mode, not
only can you use the PIP functions, but you can also record two programs at once
while watching a previously recorded program.
• How can I watch and use the PVR functions on the same program on all
of the TVs in my house? Put the receiver in Single Mode (page 2-5) and then
enable Shared View (page 11-2).
