Introduction
Please follow the instructions in this manual carefully to enjoy all the advantages of high-definition
(HD) digital television. We advise following the user instructions and recommendations supplied
with your set-top box, especially for first-time use.
Your set-top box fully complies with international DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) standards.
In order to view programmes broadcast in high-definition, you must connect your set-top box
to a suitable HDTV or computer monitor. (This is why the menus and screens sometimes refer to
an HD device.) Your set-top box is also compatible with standard-definition televisions and VCRs
equipped with a SCART connector.

Important
Using equipment safely
Do not put anything on your set-top box which
might drip or spill into it. Never stand objects
filled with liquids, such as vases, on top of your
set-top box.
Your set-top box has been manufactured to meet
international safety standards, but you must take
care to operate it safely.
Do not place your set-top box in an
unventilated cabinet or on top of a unit which
emits heat (e.g. a VCR).
It is important that you read these safety
instructions.
WARNING: Remember that contact with AC
mains can be lethal or can cause severe electric
shock. To avoid the risk of electric shock:
Never remove the top cover from your set-top
box as there are high-voltage live parts inside.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside your
set-top box.
On the rear panel of your set-top box there is a
tamper-evident label that states ‘Warranty void
if broken or removed’.
Make sure all electrical connections are properly
made.
Do not connect any equipment to the mains
supply until you have properly connected all
the other leads.
Disconnect your set-top box from the mains
supply (by disconnecting its mains lead from
the mains socket on the wall) before you
disconnect any other equipment from its rear
panel.
Never push anything into holes, slots or other
openings in the case (except a CI module
into the slot provided, and only when you are
requested to do so).
Never place naked flame sources, such as
lighted candles, on top of your set-top box.
Connecting to the mains supply
•
Your set-top box operates with a 230 V AC, 50 Hz
mains supply.
•
Do not connect your set-top box to any supply
other than this.
•
The supplied mains lead has a 2-way connector
at one end and a mains plug at the other. You
should always insert the 2-way connector into
your set-top box before you insert the plug into
the mains supply.
•
The only way to disconnect your set-top box
from the mains is to remove the mains lead.
Your set-top box must therefore be installed
near to the mains socket-outlet, which should
be easily accessible.
•
If you are in any doubt about the mains lead,
its plug or its connection, consult a competent
electrician.
•
Please follow the instructions in the following
sections, which guide you through connecting
and setting it up.
•
See also pages 14 and 15, which describe your
set-top box’s remote control.
CAUTION:
Do not use or store your set-top box in hot,
cold, damp or dusty places.
Do not block the ventilation holes of your
set-top box. Leave a gap of at least 5 cm above
and around it to allow for adequate ventilation.
Never stand it on soft furnishings.

Your choice of setting affects widescreen transmissions shown
on standard (4:3) TVs. With ‘LetterBox’ the whole of a widescreen
transmission displays, but the picture does not fill the screen. With
‘Pan & Scan’, the screen is filled, but only part of the widescreen
transmission displays.
If you set YPbPr video “On” (see page 27), SCART video is
automatically set to “CVBS”. If your TV is RGB-compatible, but not
connected by component video leads, you can select the setting
“RGB” to improve picture quality.
If this is set ‘On’, your TV should switch automatically to show
digital channels from your set-top box on the TV screen, whenever
your set-top box is on. You may prefer to use your TV’s remote
control to select the appropriate AV channel on your TV (in which
case, set ‘Off’).
Using the SETUP menu
Resolution settings
From the Setup menu (see page 24), highlight ‘TV
settings’ then press OK. Then highlight ‘Resolution
settings’ and press OK. The Resolution settings
screen appears.
On this screen, you set up your set-top box to match
your HDTV with regard to resolution (how crisp
and clear the picture appears). Generally, higher
resolution settings give better quality pictures.
However, the quality will also always depend on
how the programme was originally transmitted.
For full details, see page 11.
When you have made the changes you wish to
make, press OK. If you do not want to save your
changes, press the EXIT button.
Lip Sync settings
If you have an HDTV, and you use a separate
amplifier and loudspeakers for the audio output
from your set-top box, you may have to adjust the
“Lip Sync” setting.
From the Setup menu (see page 24), highlight ‘TV
settings’ then press OK. Then highlight ‘Lip Sync
settings’ and press OK. The Lip Sync settings screen
appears.
On your HDTV’s screen, you see a clapperboard that
opens and closes at regular intervals.
Through the loudspeakers of your audio system, you
hear a recurring sound.
If you do not hear the sound at the same moment
as the clapperboard closes, you can make
adjustments to the delay setting as follows:
•
To increase the delay quickly, press U
• To increase the delay slowly, press R
•
To decrease the delay quickly, press D
•
To decrease the delay slowly, press L
When you are happy with the Lip Sync setting, press
OK.
Or, if you decide that you do not want to change
the original setting, press the EXIT button.
This is because the length of time your HDTV takes
to display the video information may be slightly
greater than the time taken for the audio signal to
reach the loudspeakers. In this case, you would hear
someone speaking just before his/her lips moved. To
correct this situation, a delay must be added to the
audio signal, until it is “in sync” with the on-screen
video.

Using the other menus
Using the other menus
Types of scan
The Scan satellite screen appears, with the type of
scan highlighted in yellow.
Each of the types of scan described below scans
only one satellite at a time. If your system can
receive channels from more than one satellite, you
must select and scan each satellite in turn.
If you carry out a network scan you need to
understand the technical details of what you wish
to scan for, so you may need to consult a magazine
that gives this kind of information.
Fast scan
This uses default transponder values for faster results.
NIT scan
This uses a Network Information Table to scan all
of the satellite’s transponders that are included
in the NIT. For a NIT scan, information about one
transponder (frequency, polarisation and symbol
rate) is needed and the other transponders are
scanned automatically.
This scan finds all the available TV and radio
channels and puts them on their respective channel
lists, starting at number 100.
Exhaustive scan
This searches for all channels on the satellite and
may take up to 20 minutes.
Frequency scan
This is a very specific scan, which searches just a
single transponder for all the TV and radio channels
transmitted by that transponder. You must set the
frequency, polarisation and symbol rate for the
transponder you want.
Carrying out a network scan
To scan for channels, press the MENU button to
display the Main menu (see page 23).
Use D to highlight ‘Channels’, press OK, then
highlight ‘Channel search’ and press OK.
Press the L R buttons until the type of scan
you want (Fast scan, NIT scan, Exhaustive or
Frequency) is displayed.
If you have a dish positioner, you can select the
satellite you want. Use the U D buttons to
highlight the Satellite setting, then press the L R
buttons until the one you want to scan is displayed.
To change any of the Frequencies or Symbol
rates, first use the U D buttons to highlight the
one you want to edit. Then use the L R buttons to
underline each digit, and the number buttons to
enter digits.
To change a highlighted Polarisation, use the
L R buttons until the polarisation you want is
displayed.
To start the scan, using the values you have entered,
press the OK button.
When the scan is complete and the words Scan
finished appear, press the OK button to save all the
channels that were found.
IMPORTANT: If you press the EXIT button while
your set-top box is scanning, you will lose
all the channels that were previously found.
You will therefore have to start a new scan for
channels.

Updating the software
Updating the software
To keep you up-to-date with the latest
developments in digital television, new features may
be made available to your set-top box in the form of
a software update.
You should regularly check for a software update, so
you will need to remember the name of the satellite
from which your dish receives signals.
NOTE: Software updates may be available from
the following satellites; others may be added
at a later date:
•
Astra 1 (19.2 ° East)
•
Hotbird (13 ° East)
•
Nilesat (7 ° West)
To be informed about future software updates, as
soon as they become available, please register your
details at: www.pacemicro.com/ds810xe
Using the menus to update the software
Press the MENU button to display the Main menu,
highlight ‘Setup menu’ and press OK, then highlight
‘Software update’ and press OK.
If, in future, you are able to use a satellite that is not
listed above, you may need to change one or more
of these settings:
•
If you have a dish positioner, you can select the
satellite you want. Use the U D buttons to
highlight the Satellite setting, then press the
L R buttons until the one you want to scan is
displayed.
•
To change any of the Frequencies or Symbol
rates or PID, first use the U D buttons to
highlight the one you want to edit. Then use
the L R buttons to underline each digit, and
the number buttons to enter digits.
•
To change a highlighted Polarisation, use the
L R buttons until the polarisation you want is
displayed.
Press OK to start the software update process.
If there is no update available, you will see a
message to tell you.
If there is an update available, press OK to accept it.
The update will take about 30 minutes to complete.
CAUTION! Do not interrupt the update
process. Do not switch off your set top box. If
the process is interrupted, your set-top box
will attempt to reload the software from the
beginning when it is next switched on.
After a successful update, your set-top box will
restart using its new software.
For the latest information, please visit:
www.pacemicro.com/ds810xe
NOTE: If the satellite is one of the three listed
above, there is no need to change any other
settings on the Software update screen.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
If you are experiencing difficulty with your set-top box, check the troubleshooting table below – this may
provide the answer you are looking for.
Problem
Possible cause
Suggested remedy
The standby light on the
front panel of your set-top
box is not lit.
Your set-top box is not
receiving power.
Make sure that the mains lead is properly
plugged into the back of your set-top box
and the mains supply, and that the mains
supply is switched on.
Check that the mains wall socket has power
(try plugging in a lamp). If it is OK, there may
be a problem with your set-top box.
Your remote control will not
operate your set-top box.
(i) Your set-top box is still in
standby.
(i) Press the Standby (S) button on your
remote control.
(ii) Something is blocking
the path between your
remote control and your
set-top box.
(ii) Check that nothing is blocking the path.
(iii) The batteries in your
remote control need
replacing.
When your set-top box
first tries to find and store
the digital channels, you
see the message ‘No signal’
(or some of the publicised
channels are missing from
the Channel Lists).
(i) Your satellite dish is not
properly connected to your
set-top box.
(ii) Your satellite dish is
not pointing in the right
direction.
(iii) Replace both batteries in your remote
control. Please remember that used alkaline
batteries must never be thrown into a fire.
We recommend disposing of them in an
environmentally-friendly way.
(i) Make sure that your satellite dish is
properly connected to your set-top box.
(ii) Use the Antenna menu (see page 25)
to make sure that the set-up shown there
correctly reflects your installed satellite dish
system. Change the settings if it does not.
(You may need to consult a competent
satellite installation engineer.)
Finally, try scanning for channels again (see
page 29).
When you take your set-top
box out of standby, the
digital channels do not
automatically appear on
your TV.
34
The AV control setting on
the TV Settings screen may
be set to ‘Off’.
Set the SCART AV control to ‘On’ (see page
26), but note that some TVs do not respond
to this AV control setting, so you may have
to use your TV’s remote control to choose
the appropriate AV input on your TV.
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible cause
Suggested remedy
You cannot see the Zapping
Window.
The Display time setting has
been set to
‘0 seconds / Off’.
Set it to ‘3’, ‘5’ or ‘10’ seconds (as required)
instead (see page 31).
You see the on-screen
message: ‘Unknown TV
channel’.
You have selected a channel
number that currently has
no channel associated
with it.
In the future, this channel number may be
used for a channel. In the meantime, select a
different channel.
The picture appears to be
either:
The TV screen format setting
on the SD settings screen
has not been set to match
your TV.
Display the SD settings screen (see page
26). If you have a widescreen TV, set ‘16:9’.
Otherwise set ‘4:3’.
(i) The programme is
not transmitted with the
required Dolby Digital audio
stream.
Check that audio options are available
as follows. While you are watching the
programme, press the OPT button.
(i) ‘squashed’ (from side to
side or from top to bottom);
or
(ii) cut off at the top and
bottom of the screen.
You cannot hear Dolby
Digital audio from
equipment attached to
the optical digital-audio
connector.
(ii) The Dolby Digital audio
stream is available, but
Auto-handling is set to ‘Off’
on the Digital Audio Output
screen (this is the factory
setting).
NOTE: If you have a widescreen TV,
its remote control may have a ‘zoom’
button which alters the way that the
picture appears on the screen, so you
may also need to use this button.
If Options are available, the Options Window
appears. Highlight the ‘Audio’ option, then
use the U D buttons to highlight ‘Dolby
Digital’ (if present), then press OK.
If, generally, you wish to hear Dolby Digital
audio when it is available, change Autohandling to ‘On’.
35
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible cause
Suggested remedy
The picture sometimes
breaks up into ‘blocks’.
(i) If you have other devices
connected to your dish,
there may not be enough
signal strength for the
set-up.
(i) Try connecting your satellite dish directly
to your set-top box. If this stops the picture
breaking up, then there is not enough signal
strength to use additional devices.
(ii) Objects such as trees or
houses may be affecting the
signal quality.
(iii) Faulty connectors or
leads may be affecting the
signal.
(iv) If the break-up is
temporary but often, there
may be interference caused
by other electrical items in
your home.
36
(ii) You may need to improve your satellite
dish installation – consult a professional
installation engineer.
(iii) Try new connectors/leads.
(iv) Consult a qualified electrician.
Digital rights management (DRM)
HDCP content protection
This is a type of Digital Rights Management (DRM) that prevents or restricts the copying of high-definition
content. Some high-definition programmes may be transmitted with HDCP content protection enabled.
The DVI and/or HDMI inputs on your HDTV must support HDCP Content Protection, in order for you to view
protected programmes. If your HDTV does not support HDCP, your set-top box will display the message “HD
output disabled due to Content Protection” on its front panel, and your HDTV will not display a picture for
HDCP-protected programmes.
In addition to the above, the output from your set-top box’s component video connectors (YPbPr) may
be disabled or restricted. When the output is disabled, the message “HD output disabled due to Content
Protection” displays on your set-top box’s front panel. When the output is restricted, the component video
output is downscaled to 576 i 25, and the message “Component output is downscaled due to Content
Protection” displays on your set-top box’s front panel.
NOTE: HDCP Content Protection does not disable or restrict the video output from your set-top
box’s SCART connectors.
