3. Installation
Read these instructions carefully before connecting the receiver.
Your new Digital Receiver has been designed to be user-friendly and easy to use. The receiver can
receive digital channels via cable. Furthermore, the receiver has the ability to decode Conax encoded
channels with the help of a smart card.
A digital sound output on the rear of the receiver gives the possibility of real cinema sound, if you have
a surround amplifier.
One of the goals in the development of this receiver, has been to make an easy to use menu structure,
enabling user-satisfaction. Under the development, we have paid particular attention to the software in
the receiver, especially the stability, so that there is less need for updates of the software. Even though
particular attention has been paid to the software, there is no guarantee that an update will not be
necessary, e.g. if there is any change to the way in which the programs are sent.
It is important to ensure that you have the most recent software in your receiver; this will give you the
best possible performance from the receiver. The software can be downloaded from the homepage
To protect you and your receiver from hazards and danger, protect the receiver from:
• Fluids, of all forms.
• Cold, heat and extreme temperature changes.
• Dust
• Lack of ventilation, especially if the ventilation holes become covered.
• Crushing.
If you take the receiver from a cold environment to a warm one, please be careful with the condensation build up in the receiver. To stop any hazard here, please allow the receiver to stand without power
connected for at least one hour.
Lightning can damage the receiver. Therefore remember to remove the signal cable from the
receiver, if there is a risk of lightning.
Do not allow foreign objects (metal objects, paper clips, fluids, candle wax, and other items) to enter
the receiver cabinet, through the ventilation holes and the card reader. This can short circuit the
receiver and cause a fire hazard. If anything does enter the cabinet, remove the cable from the mains
immediately and contact your dealer.
Please pay particular attention to the mains cable, so that it cannot be damaged in any way. The cable
must not be subjected to sharp edges, knots, or heavy furniture. Damage to the mains cable can
cause a fire hazard or electrical shock.
The mains power cable must not be pulled on. To remove the power, please hold the plug and do not
pull on the cable. Pulling on the cable can damage it.
Lightning, damage from fluids, connection of any equipment not specified in this manual, use of excessive force, installation of any software not officially released (patch or copy software) is not covered
under the terms of the guarantee.
