DEVICE SUMMARY
3.1
Device Capabilities
The 1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 units uses the proprietary CORIO®2 Engine to
perform their functions, being the second generation of the successful CORIO®
products. The CORIO ®2 technology is a powerful toolset for any application
requiring high quality video signal conversion or image manipulation.
The 1T-C2-750 unit features dual video processing and scaling engines, along with
video mixing, keying and fader capabilities. These functions offer flexibility for
supporting dual picture-in-picture with a wide range of inputs and outputs over DVI
and RGBHV, RGsB, RGBS and YPbPr resolutions.
The 1T-C2-760 unit features a single bandwidth-enhanced video processing and
scaling engine, along with video mixing, keying, fader and edge-blending
capabilities. These functions allow the flexibility for supporting single picture-inpicture with a wide range of inputs and outputs over DVI and RGBHV, RGsB,
RGBS and YPbPr resolutions.
Both units are well suited in the professional, broadcast, presentation & display
environments.
3.2
Device Features
General Topography
4:4:4 RGB / YUV sampling provides full bandwidth color which allows precise
keying.
Ultimate flexibility
The 1T-C2 series’ output signal format flexibility assures that the Native Resolution
of virtually any display can be matched. Because of the resolution calculator
(included in the Windows® Control Panel), even new resolutions can be added to
the unit. Signal parameter adjustments can be made for each video input and are
stored in individual non-volatile memories for retrieval once the unit’s power has
been removed.
Simple Control
The unit can be controlled in various ways. One option is to control it from the front
panel using the keys on the front of the unit. Another option would be to control the
unit from an infra-red remote control. It can also be controlled via RS-232 using the
Windows Control Panel.
The Windows Control Panel is available for download from our Internet site and
affords complete control of the unit and adds Scripting to facilitate long, complex
sequences of commands.
13
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
Upgradeability
All 1T-C2 units benefit from firmware upgradeability, thus reducing product
obsolescence by allowing the installation of the latest version of firmware. This not
only applies to the software used to control the unit, but also to the range of
resolutions stored inside the unit, the addition of new features, and upgrades to the
heart of the image processing hardware – the CORIO®2 scaling engine. See
http://www.tvone.com/support for more detail.

The above menu item must be ‘On’ to activate certain menu items. These typically
control the more advanced items in the menus.
5.4
Special button combinations and functions
Various button combinations are available to perform certain functions:
These button combinations only work when the unit is switched
on and active i.e. with the STANDBY/ON LED off.
5.4.1
Locking front panel buttons & IR remote control
This can be performed by pressing STANDBY/ON and INPUT at the same time. All
front panel buttons and IR remote commands will be disabled, with the exception of
repeating the above combination to un-lock the unit and for storing the current
locked buttons setting (thus letting you make sure the unit always starts up with the
buttons locked). The IR remote’s LOCK and STORE buttons will always be active,
giving another way to turn button/IR remote locking off.
The STANDBY/ON button will flash when the unit’s buttons are locked.
5.4.2
Restore power-on settings
Should your current settings not allow you to see the on-screen display (OSD),
restoring the last-saved settings might be useful. This can be done by pressing
STANDBY/ON and MENU at the same time until a single beep is heard.
5.4.3
Factory Reset
If you wish to restore all operational parameters to their original condition (for
example, if saved settings prevent the unit from working with your display monitor),
hold the STANDBY/ON and MENU buttons in together until at least two beeps are
heard.
17
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
All stored settings except resolutions are lost when the unit is
reset. A Firmware update is the only way to perform a complete
factory reset (including resolution data).
5.4.4
Switching between different resolutions using the front panel
Your unit will default to outputting 1280x1024@60Hz after a Factory Reset. Should
your display or output device not support the default resolution, or if you wish to
have quick access to an alternate resolution, the following button combinations
below can be used.
Please note that these changes will have no immediate effect if the unit is locked to
one of the DVI-I sources – as that source will define the output resolution.

VIDEO INPUTS, OUTPUTS AND SCALERS
The 1T-C2-750 and 1T-C2-760 units both have two identical DVI-I inputs and one
DVI-I output.
6.1
DVI-I inputs
Each input can accept:
Digital DVI-D (maximum 1920x1200@60Hz / 1080p60)
(1T-C2-760 also supports 2880x900@60Hz)
Analog RGBHV
Analog RGsB (sync on green)
Analog RGBS (composite sync at TTL levels)
Analog YUV/YPbPr (including tri-level)
In most cases, the particular input being used will be auto-detected – with DVI-D
taking priority over any analog source. See ‘Adjust sources’ for more information
on manually selecting an input type.
6.2
PC/HD Scaler DVI-I output
The output can support DVI-D and an analog output type (as defined in ‘Adjust
outputs’) simultaneously:
Digital DVI-D (maximum 1920x1200@60Hz / 1080p60)
(1T-C2-760 also supports 2880x900@60Hz)
Analog RGBHV
Analog RGsB (sync on green)
Analog RGBS (composite sync at TTL levels)
Analog YUV/YPbPr (including tri-level)
The ‘Adjust outputs’ menu can be used to change the output resolution and the
sync/video format.
HD resolutions (such as 720p and 1080i) default to tlYUV (tri-level YUV) and
therefore may appear purple on a standard DVI monitor. This can be turned back
to RGBHV in the ‘Adjust outputs’ menu.
6.3
1T-C2-750 Block diagram
This unit has 2 scaling engines and 3 keyers whose outputs are mixed together to
form a single image, as in the block diagram below:

Windows A & B can be scaled (which is any combination of Zoom, Shrink, Flip, etc.
available in Adjust windows), and then each window (A, B or Z) can be keyed to
remove any color (or nearby range of colors) using the Adjust keyers menu.
The resulting windows are merged together into a single output, according to the
layer priority as set in Adjust windows.
Not shown in the above diagram are the Still Image Stores (SIS1 & SIS2) which
can provide a static source for either Window A or B (but not background Z), nor
the border generators which can place borders of any color or opacity around each

MENU LAYOUT AND SETTINGS ADJUSTMENT
From here on, we’ll be looking at the menu structure employed in the series and,
more importantly, the individual menu items that allow you to take advantage of the
power of the unit.
You’ll be using the MENU and buttons and the on-screen display (OSD) to view
the options and settings available to you. The OSD can be activated by pressing
the MENU button once. Holding the MENU button in for a short while will then
close the OSD.
Whilst the OSD is active, use the and buttons to change where you are in the
menu. Go into a sub menu by pressing the MENU button once. To exit a sub menu,
scroll using the or button to the end of the sub-menu to reveal Exit. Push in the
MENU button to exit the sub menu.
You can edit a value in brackets ‘[ ]’ by pressing the MENU button once (you’ll note
that the brackets surrounding a particular parameter’s value will begin to flash).
Change the value by using the and buttons to decrease and increase the value
respectively. Then finalize your adjustment by pressing the MENU button once
more.
A few menu items have multiple parameters within an individual menu selection. In
those cases, you can adjust one item, and then move to the next, etc.
Holding the MENU button in for a few seconds stores all
changes in memory. Unless you intentionally change it again
later, the adjustment will remain even after power is removed
from the unit.
8.1
The High Level Menu Structure
Menus are arranged so that a particular general function has a menu name on the
top line and beneath that either a sub-menu or one or more related individual
settings are displayed.
In some cases the functionality is global – meaning it has an effect on the unit as a
whole (such as changing the output resolution). In the majority of cases, the
function is related to a specific operational area of the unit, detailed by the text in
the top line.
There are two screens that appear before the Group Menus (sub-menus) are
accessed.

the version of firmware loaded into the unit, this can be upgraded from the support
website.
The PT and BT numbers refer to Hardware version information and are of interest
to the Technical Support Group should you ever need assistance.
At the end of all Group Menus will be an ‘Exit’ item. Simply select this to exit the
existing menu structure and return to the previous one in the hierarchy.

Items Associated with the Adjust outputs group
This menu group allows adjustments to be made that specifically affect the output
of the unit, including output resolution and locking/overlaying onto a computer or
video source.
800 x 600 60Hz
Lock mode
[Off] [RGB1]
This menu item allows the lock mode to be selected and the lock source to be
defined. The top line of the display shows the current detected resolution of the
selected lock source (RGB1 in this example). The lock mode can be either Off,
Genlock or Lock & Mix, with the operation of these shown in the following table:
Lock mode
Off
Genlock
Description
The output resolution of the Output is defined by the setting
for Output Resolution and there will be no background
source visible.
The output video will be “Genlocked” to the selected lock
source. The output signal will be synchronous to the input
sync and adjustable but there will still be no lock source
visible.
25
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
Lock & Mix
The output video will be locked to the selected source, the
syncs will be locked (but with an additional internal video
processing delay) and the background for the output will be
that of the Lock source (unless foreground and background
are swapped).
The frame rate of the output will be locked to the frame rate
of the input. This can only work if the output resolution
frame rate matches that of the lock source frame rate.
‘Frm.lock’ will flash until a highly stable lock has been
achieved.
*Only certain models support this.
Frm.lock*
In both Genlock and Lock & Mix modes the source selected for the lock input
determines the resolution of the Output image. The output resolution for the entire
image can be no different than the resolution of the lock source. All
synchronization signals are re-generated within the unit so they may look slightly
different when compared on an oscilloscope to the original source.
In Frame-lock mode, the output resolution is independent of the lock source, but
the frame-rate must match that of the source (e.g. 1280x1024 60Hz can be framelocked to 640x480 60Hz). Frame-lock is very useful for synchronizing a HD-SDI
output (e.g. 1080i 59.94Hz) to a composite video source (e.g. NTSC), or for scaling
one resolution to another while avoiding any potential frame-rate conversion
artefacts.
'H/V shift' can be used to align the output to the input more accurately, but this may
cause instability until the lock is re-acquired ('Frm.lock' will flash).
Before turning the Lock feature on, you first must select a valid
Lock source. Some units may not have all Lock sources
available, depending on hardware limitations – see
Specifications for details of limitations on your unit.
If the Lock source you choose is not valid, then Genlock or Lock & Mix will be
temporarily disabled, until the Lock source becomes valid again. When disabled,
the resolution previously specified in ‘Output res’ becomes the output resolution.
1024 x 768 60Hz
Output res.
[28]
Your unit can handle a very wide array of inputs and convert them all to a single
output signal with defined characteristics. This output resolution will remain in
place until changed or it may be overridden by the lock mode and source.
The top line of the display will show the current output resolution selected. Some
units will have a limited number of output resolutions depending on their function
(e.g. Down Converters are more limited than Video Scalers).

1024 x 768 60Hz
HDCP
(Active)
On
HDCP is handled only on certain units with DVI outputs, so this menu may not
appear on your own unit. HDCP is a ‘High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection’
system, which can ensure that a high definition video signal cannot be received by
units not equipped with a HDCP receiver.
This menu lets you see the current status of the output and whether HDCP is
supported or active, and also lets you turn off the output’s HDCP encryption
system. Note, however, that turning HDCP off at the output will also prevent
HDCP-encrypted signals from being received by the unit – see the table below.
By default, HDCP on the output is turned On - so that if your attached DVI display
is HDCP-compliant, then your output will be encrypted (regardless of whether the
input to the scaler is encrypted). Note that you don’t have to attach a display to the
output of the scaler – another unit can be connected instead, in which case that unit
is known as a ‘repeater’.
Please also see the HDCP menu item in ‘Adjust sources’, as this controls
availability of HDCP at the DVI input. The status message given in brackets has
the following meaning:

Adjust outputs
Anlog= [RGBHV] Dig= RGBHV
This menu may appear as either of the above – depending on whether the analog
and digital outputs are controlled separately.
This menu item allows you to select the type of signal output your unit will provide.
Types of output vary depending on the resolution selected and include various
types of component signals YUV or tlYUV (tri-level YUV) and the full range of RGB
type signals RGBHV, RGBS and RGsB (Sync on green).
Note that this value is remembered for each resolution – so you can set 1024x768
60Hz to RGBHV and 1280x720 60Hz to tlYUV and both will be remembered
separately. This value is not affected by a Factory reset – but is reset by a
firmware update.
Adjust outputs
Optimize for SDI
[On]
This menu item is only available on certain units with an SDI output and when
locking to a CV or YC input. An internal de-jitter circuit ensures that the SDI output
has a low jitter over the full 10Hz to 100kHz range, even though the CV or YC input
may have a high jitter. However, this is not always compatible with a CV/YC output
where the colour sub-carrier should not be de-jittered and needs to follow a Lock
source’s input – hence it should be turned Off it the CV/YC outputs are going to be
used.
Adjust outputs
Stand. [NTSC-M/PAL-BDGHI]
This menu item is only available when the Output resolution is set to PAL or NTSC.
With this you can change the output type to the PAL or NTSC standard with the
further option of changing the output to the additional PAL & NSTC standards such
as PAL-M or PAL-N. SECAM is also available as an output on some units,
provided the ‘Output res’ is set to PAL / 50Hz.

Items Associated with the Adjust windows group
This menu group allows adjustment to be made to window specific parameters
such as the window source, its position, size and zoom level.
Window size adjustment can be performed in a number of
different ways according to whether ‘Aspect adjust’ is set to
Simple, Advanced or Pixel. The main part of this text assumes
Simple mode – see later for a detailed description of the other
modes.

This menu item allows the image to be frozen or unfrozen – thus keeping a single
image on screen indefinitely. Note that images are not stored when power is
removed from the unit.
Adjust windows
H/V crop % [ 0]
0
This allows the scaled image to be cropped at the top/bottom edges, or at the
sides. Typically, this is used when performing a picture-in-picture (PIP) function
(only available on certain models), where the incoming video signal has a letterbox
or pillarbox size (i.e. it has black areas at the top/bottom or sides).
By adjusting the H/V values, you can crop out the black areas to correct the size on
the final output screen. Note that it does not change the shape or aspect ratio of
the image – but just removes the parts of the image that are not required.
Adjust windows
H/V out shift
[ 0] [ 0]
This positions the selected Window horizontally and vertically on the monitor. This
should only be used for ‘fine tuning’ and should not normally require adjustment –
use the Shrink H/V adjustment when your image is less than 100% Shrink value.
Adjust windows
Shrink level%
[ 50] [On]
Shrink Level determines the percentage of the monitor’s total available screen
space that the selected Window image occupies. Adjustment is provided for a
reduction down to 10% of the overall output size. In most cases, this feature is
used for picture-in-picture (PIP) when a background image is being used (for units
with overlay abilities).
Note that some units do not have the [On] entry – this is only for units with a PIP
button on the front, with turns this entry On and Off. On these units, this feature is
‘Off’ by default, so that the full image size of 100% is used. Shrink level will need to
be turned On before any change to this value has an effect.
Adjust windows
H/V position %
[100] [ 50]
This menu option determines the position of the shrunken image on the monitor
screen. This will move an image that is less than the full screen size left/right or
up/down within the monitor’s available screen space. It will not let you move the
30
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
image off the screen, so certain values will appear to have no effect (unless you
use a very low Shrink value like 10%).
Adjust windows
Aspect change
[Normal]
This item provides a simple way of changing the output screen aspect ratio, to suit
the incoming video signal and final output display size. Use the zoom/shrink
functions for occasions when the aspect ratio is an odd format.
Adjust windows
Aspect adjust
[Simple]
See later section for further details on this item.
Adjust windows
Temporal interp.
[Off]
This is a feature only present in advanced units only. It greatly improves the
method of frame-rate conversion, by allowing the unit to merge frames together
during the process.
When ‘Off’, the unit will use frame-repetition when converting 50Hz to 60Hz (i.e. it
has to duplicate every 5th frame), or frame-dropping when converting 60Hz to 50Hz
(i.e. it has to drop every 6th frame). When ‘On’, smooth blending is applied so that
frames are not lost, but blended together at the appropriate times.
Adjust windows
Flicker Reduction
[Low]
The Flicker Reduction menu item will only appear if you have selected a low
resolution interlaced output such as PAL or NTSC. If you are using CV or YC
outputs, this adjustment may be of interest, particularly when you have line
drawings or similar fine detail. You can choose from four possible Flicker Reduction
settings. You should use as little Flicker Reduction as possible because the Vertical
detail will be softened at the highest setting.

Image smoothing reduces the jagged-edges sometimes seen within an output
image by softening it. It typically improves the quality of a scaled image greatly.
31
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
There are four possible settings for this adjustment: “Off”, “Med.”, “High”, and
“Auto”. The “Auto” setting is generally thought to be most desirable and will vary the
smoothing process according to the amount of zoom taking place.

Occasionally, it’s necessary to cause the output image to be flipped Vertically,
Horizontally or both – most commonly when a video projector is ceiling-mounted, or
for special effects.

Layer priority abABZ
[ 3]
This adjustment selects the order of the window layers. Layers are shown for ‘a’
and ‘b’ logo screens, Window ‘A’, Window ‘B’ and ‘Z’ is the Lock Source. The
default condition is shown. The number shown is the current layer of the active
window, when you adjust the layer number the layer stack indicator ‘abABZ’ will
change to allow visualization of the layer stack. Note that layer 6 the Background
Color is not shown as its layer position can not be altered – it will always be the
background.
8.5.1
Extended scaling controls
The ‘Aspect adjust’ parameter is used to change the way that scaling of windows is
controlled. By default it is set to ‘Simple’ which allows basic control of the window
zoom and shrink sizes and positions – enough for simple tasks.
In ‘Advanced’ mode, it allows the horizontal (H) and vertical (V) components of the
Zoom and Shrink functions to be adjusted independently, thus allowing custom
aspect ratios to be created, or to convert from one aspect ratio to another.
In ‘Pixel’ mode, the user has direct access to pixel and line-accurate scaling
functions. This lets the user specify the exact co-ordinates and size of the source
image (within the video source), and the position and size of where this is placed in
the output video signal.
The table below summarises the different menu items in the different modes – the
‘Simple’ items have already been described earlier in this section, so only the
‘Advanced’ and ‘Pixel’ ones that are different (highlighted in bold) will be detailed
here.

H/V zoom % [100] [100]1.333:1
This item allows the independent setting of the horizontal and vertical zoom values.
The third number (1.333 in the example) is the Aspect Ratio resulting from the
adjustments, which is automatically calculated for you based on the incoming
resolution and the H & V Zoom values.
Most resolutions are 4:3 ratio, thus the third number will be 1.333 (4 divided by 3).
Another common aspect ratio is 16:9 (16 divided by 9 = 1.777). PAL and NTSC
inputs are physically 4:3 on your video monitor, but their actual pixel/line ratios are
different and so will not display as 1.333.

Shrink H/V % [100] [100] 1.333
This item allows the setting of different Horizontal and Vertical ‘shrink’ sizes. The
third number (1.333 in the example) is the Aspect Ratio resulting from the
adjustments, which is automatically calculated for you based on the output
resolution (the actual pixels & lines, not your physical screen size) and the H & V
Shrink values.
Most resolutions are 4:3 ratio, thus the third number will be 1.333 (4 divided by 3).
Another common aspect ratio is 16:9 (16 divided by 9 = 1.777). Therefore, to
convert your 4:3 output into a 16:9 output, reduce the vertical (V) Shrink value to
75% and this will simulate a 16:9 output. PAL and NTSC inputs are physically 4:3
on your video monitor, but their actual pixel/line ratios are different and so will not
display as 1.333.

Items Associated with the Adjust keyers group
Please note that not all units have this sub-menu – it is only present on units with
overlaying abilities.
Towards the end of this manual you will find a section titled ‘COMMON
OPERATIONS’ – this gives a step-by-step guide to keying out a particular color.
Adjust keyers
Keyer enable
[Off]
This menu item turns keying On or Off for the current foreground. A keyed image is
in essence one image superimposed over another – such that portions of the top
image are made transparent (keyed out), so that the background image can show
through. The following settings allow you to vary the colour(s) that are keyed out.
Adjust keyers
Swap fore/backgrnd
[Off]
This menu item is only present on single-channel scalers – dual-channel scalers
have the layer priority set within the ‘Adjust Windows’ menu.
34
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
This menu item allows you to swap the foreground and background images when
Lock mode is set to Lock & Mix. It will have no effect in any other mode (since no
background is present).
Normally, your foreground is the input (window) source and your background is the
lock source. This then allows you to superimpose any graphics or video input on
top of the lock source by keying out a certain color or range of colors in the input
source. Swapping them means that the input source moves to the background and
the lock source is now in front of it. Thus you are now keying out the lock source
colors to reveal the input source behind it.
Note that this is different to simply swapping over the input and lock sources as that
would affect the final output resolution – see examples below:

Adjust keyers
Y Key min/max
[ 0] [ 32]
The Min/Max parameters are used to select what range of Y (luminance/grey-scale)
values are made transparent within the selected window/lock source. In order to
key out part of an image, start with the max value and increase it until the required
lighter parts within the window/lock source disappear. Then adjust the min level to
bring back any darker parts of the image.
Adjust keyers
Y Key softness
[ 0]
The Y Key softness option removes noise from the keyed image, generally at the
edges. Adjust as required to make the edges of the key as sharp or as soft as
desired. The noise is where the analog to digital process (A/D conversion) may not
sample a 50% brightness as being exactly 50% i.e. sometimes 49% and
sometimes 51%. Increasing the softness value will broaden the range of keyed
colors so that the keying of images varies depending on how close a color is to the
keyed-out range.
Adjust keyers
Y Key invert
[Off]
35
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
The Y Key invert changes the keying characteristics with respect to what colors of
the foreground image you wish to ‘key out’.
Setting it to Off will cause the colour range that’s defined to be removed - remove
the desired colors. Setting it to On will cause the colour range that’s defined to be
kept - key out all other colors.
The descriptions above behave identically on the remaining U Key Invert & V Key
Invert component versions. However they are directed at the U/B-Y (blue) colour
component and V/R-Y (red) colour components respectively. Adjustment and
effects are the same as explained above for Y Key Invert (brightness/grey-scale).

Items Associated with the Adjust sources group
The ‘Adjust Sources’ menu group accesses the parameters associated with the
processing amplifiers used for each input (RGB, CV, YC, etc.). They allow you to
fine-tune an incoming signal to optimize its color, brightness or even sharpness.
Not all settings are available for all input types, and not all input
types listed here may be available on your unit. Also note that
many of these adjustments may not show without ‘Advanced
menus’ set to On.
It is recommended that you Store your settings once you’re happy with them in
readiness for future use.

[RGB1]
This menu item selects the input connection for which you want to make
adjustments to. As in the image above, changes will only be made to the source
connected to RGB1. Once the selection has been made, all changes made using
the following operating parameters will only apply to the selected input.
Selection of a CV/YC source will reveal different menu items that
allow adjustments beyond those used for RGB sources. The
menu discussions that follow relate first to RGB sources, then to
CV / YC type sources.

1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
In most situations, the Audio input values would be different for each video source
– so that when the first video source is selected, so is the first audio source (this is
called ‘audio follow video’). The second video source then selects the second
audio source, etc. However, there is nothing to prevent all Audio input values being
set to the same value, for ‘audio breakaway’.

(This has replaced ‘De-glitch’ used on previous firmware versions.)
This option is used to tell the unit what to do if the video source is lost or becomes
unstable. Options are:

Description
Shows all picture break-up and instabilities.
Freezes the latest frame – un-freezes as soon as the
source becomes stable again.
Blue (default) Turns the window blue, to represent source loss.

scenarios on units with overlay abilities.
If you have a very unstable input, such as a video tape player with a poor (jumping)
output signal, you may wish to turn the setting to ‘Show’.
Source : RGB1
De-int
[M.comp med]
An interlaced input consists of two fields separated in time. Both fields are required
in order to make up the full resolution input image, but since they are sent one after
the other, a moving image will have “motion artifacts” if the two fields are simply
combined together. The most common artifact is a blurring at the point of
maximum movement within an image. Your unit provides some tools to minimize
the effects of de-interlacing of an image.
The following options are available for this menu item:

but can be used when the input is known to be still.
Automatically selects Film 3:2 or Medium Range Motion
Compensation (M. Comp Med.) depending on whether Film
Mode is detected or not.
Enables 3:2 pull down conversion of the incoming NTSC
video. (This option should not be used if the source is not
NTSC video).
Enables Pixel Adaptive Motion Compensation. Three levels
are available with ‘Low’ providing the least compensation
for Motion and ‘High’ providing the most compensation.
The two fields are shown consecutively.
Source : RGB1
Diagonal interp.
[Off]
This menu item allows the user to specify whether the source has diagonal
interpolation applied to it when de-interlacing occurs. This reduces ‘jagged’
artifacts on moving images, however is not suitable for noisy sources where the
noise could be mis-interpreted as a diagonal or sloping element of the picture.
Source : RGB1
Noise reduction
[Off]
This menu item allows the user to specify whether the source has noise reduction
applied to it. This is performed by averaging the video signal over a number of
fields – but ignoring areas where motion has occurred. If motion blurring is seen, it
is recommended to turn this setting off.
8.7.2
DVI Source Menu Items

HDCP
[Inactive]
[Off]
HDCP is supported on certain units only - and only on the DVI input connector.
This menu item lets you change whether HDCP is active on this particular DVI
input.
If turned ‘Off’, then a source that requires HDCP encryption will not send a video
signal to your unit.
If turned ‘On’, and a HDCP-compliant display or device is attached to your unit’s
DVI output, then HDCP encrypted sources can be used.

EDID to use
[Def]
This feature is only present on certain units – it is used with the next menu item to
form a simple ‘EDID Manager’.
EDID is an information packet retrieved by a PC graphic card over a DVI link from a
monitor which tells the graphic card which resolutions are compatible with the
monitor. In the case of the your unit, it tells the graphic card what resolutions are
compatible with it.
The above menu lets the user select which of 8 EDID data blocks are ‘shown’ to a
PC or other DVI source. (It does not affect any other input.) Note that graphic
cards will usually only read the EDID data when the cable is first connected, or on
power-up.
The 8 EDID blocks are as follows:

If you change this value, you’ll need to store your settings and then re-boot the
CORIO2 unit at least once to ensure that the DVI source sees that the EDID data
has changed.
It should also be noted that some graphic cards will require your PC to be rebooted before they see that a change has occurred.

EDID capture
[ 1]
Grab
This menu provides a simple way of capturing EDID data from an attached DVI
monitor and storing it in one of the user-definable EDID memory data blocks (1 to
6) – see previous menu.
To capture a different display's EDID, perform the following:
1. Connect that display to the DVI output of the CORIO2 unit - the CORIO2 unit
will then read it automatically and store it in the ‘Mon’ EDID entry.
2. Select which EDID memory (1 to 6) to copy this information to.
3. Select 'Grab' and click on it - this will copy the current monitor's information
to that EDID memory.
4. Change 'EDID to use' to that memory location (1 to 6).
5. Store your unit’s settings (see earlier in this manual on how to do this).
6. Re-boot (turn off and on again) the CORIO2 unit to ensure that the graphic
card uses this new EDID data (you may need to re-boot your computer as
well).
Using the above, up to 6 custom EDID settings can be stored in the CORIO2 unit,
ready for recall later. This is useful to simulate another display being attached to a
graphic card.
8.7.3
RGB Source Menu Items
Source: RGB1
Autoset status
[Inactive]
Once the Autoset sense setting has been made, this menu item is accessed and
activated. The Autoset sense utility will then correct the pixel phase and then
position the Top Left portion of the image and the Bottom Right portion of the
image. Once complete it then resume inactive status.
Source: RGB1
Input pixel phase
[ 16]
Since an image pixel is a very small element of the total image, it’s possible for
your unit’s Analog to Digital converters to wrongly sample the picture on the edge
of each pixel thereby losing image resolution and creating image noise. The Input
pixel phase adjustment allows you to change the position (from 0 to 31) where the
pixels are sampled, relative to the horizontal sync signal.
To make this adjustment, select an RGB source and then provide an image from
that source with fine detail, preferably with very sharp vertical lines. Adjust this
value until you see the sharpest image. Alternately, adjust this value to give the
41
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
worst (noisiest/softest) image, and then add or subtract 16 to get the optimum
value.
Note that the AUTOSET function (for RGB inputs only) will attempt to automatically
work out the best value for this setting.
Source: RGB1
RGB input type
[RGBHV]
There are several types of signals that are called RGB signals as a generic term.
Each has slightly different characteristics that set it apart from similar RGB signals
– such as how the synchronization signal is sent. This menu item lets you set the
input type to use.
Available options let you select whether the input is standard RGB or YUV
(including YPbPr signals with a tri-level sync).
Source: RGB1
RGB contr.

This menu item lets you adjust the individual RGB or YUV/YPbPr signals, in case
one component is at a different contrast to other, or if they all need to be boosted or
lowered.
8.7.4
CV & YC Source Menu Items
Of the above Source Menu items, the Autoset sense and Autoset status functions,
RGB type and Pixel phase are specific to RGB signals only. The rest of the Source
menu items function with RGB, CV or YC type signals. In addition, there are four
additional Menu items that are only used with CV or YC type signals and these are
explained below:
Source: YC1
Bright [100]
Contrast [100]
Adjust the Brightness and Contrast of the image to your requirement.
Source: YC1
Satur [100]
Hue [0]
Saturation is the amount of color present in the image. Hue is the color “tint”
parameter and the adjustment range is +90 degrees through to -90 degrees with 0
being the default.
Source: YC1
Sharpness
[0]
42
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
Within limits, you can enhance or soften the appearance of detail within an image.
The Sharpness values go both negative and positive, with 0 being the default. Note
that over-enhancing an image has the side effect of making it appear to be noisy
and under-enhancing an image gives the appearance of poor video quality.
Source: YC1
Luma delay
[ 0]
On occasion, a video source will have the color portion of the signal offset from the
luminance portion. If you’ve ever seen a poor quality comic book that has the
outline of the cartoon character’s head in one place on the page but the flesh tones
for the head offset slightly, you are seeing the print equivalent of Luminance to
Chrominance Phase Delay.
Fortunately, your unit provides a way for you to make the two signals occur at the
same time on the selected image. The adjustment range provides both positive and
negative levels of delay with 0 being the default.
8.7.5 Still Image Store / Testcard Source Menu Items
Source : TC1
Testcard

respectively. E.g. increase both U and V to give a purple colour, or decrease both
to give a green colour.
Adjust borders
Brdr opacity %

This parameter controls how visible the border is to the viewer. A setting of 0
renders the border invisible (transparent) whereas a setting of 100 makes the Logo
fully visible. (In-between settings can give the Border a transparent appearance.)

Items associated with the Adjust transitions group
Please note that not all units have this sub-menu – it is only available on some
units with overlay and keying abilities.
Transitions control how your unit responds when a source is changed. Fades
between sources, as well as wipes and cuts, are possible. The amount of time
taken by a transition is controllable from instant transition (a ‘cut’) to several
minutes.

This parameter controls how long a transition from one input to another takes. The
value can be 0 (a cut) or several minutes - adjustable in 1/10th second increments.
Adjust transitions
Wipe type
[Left -> Right]
If you selected ‘Wipe’ or ‘Push’ for the transition type, then you will be able to
specify the ‘movement direction’ of the transition that you want. Both ‘Wipe’ and
‘Push’ support: Left to Right, Right to Left, Up/Down (Top to Bottom), Down/Up
(Bottom to Top). ‘Wipe’ also supports: Diagonal and Diamond effect.
Adjust transitions
Wipe size
[100]
Wipe Size sets the ‘granularity’ of the ‘Wipe’ effect and so is only shown when
‘Wipe’ is the transition type. The smaller the number, the more elements there are
to the wipe. To clarify by example, if you select the Diamond wipe effect and set a
small number into the Wipe Size parameter, you will have a large number of
Diamonds present in the transition. On the other hand, a large number loaded into
the parameter will result in only one or two diamonds being present during the
transition.

Making adjustments here risks creating a non-standard resolution that is not
displayable on a monitor. The resolutions and values within the database are
industry standards and should not normally be altered by the user. That said, there
might be times when it is necessary to create a custom resolution with specific
parameters. If circumstances require you to make such a change, please read the
following specific notes:
1. Any changes made to this database take effect instantly and are also stored
immediately in non-volatile memory.
2. Since this database is used for both input and output image processing, altering
a resolution that is used for both (e.g. 1024x768 input and 1024x768 output)
may give undesired effects.

This option changes the total number of image pixels on one line of monitor video
including the Horizontal sync pulse and blanking time. This is normally in a multiple
of 8. It is very important to get this value correct, or many digital display devices,
such as TFT monitors, will display an image with an odd moiré effect – such as soft
vertical bands spread evenly across the image.

H/V active
[ 800] x 600
A video frame includes both the active area, the portion of the image normally
containing useful visual information, and a resolution value for a given display
standard which only expresses the number of pixels visible in an image.
The well-known 800 x 600 computer resolution standard simply means that there
are 800 pixels/line visible horizontally and there are 600 lines visible vertically.
This item provides a way to change the number of active pixels and lines.
800 x 600 60 Hz
H/V Start
[ 88] x 23
There is a period of time between the end of the Horizontal Sync pulse and the
start of Active Video. This portion of the waveform signal is called the “Back Porch”,
a term originating with the television broadcasting industry and its RS-170A
specification. In practice, this will control where the video image starts on the left
side of the monitor without changing the width of the sync pulse itself (another way
to control where the image area starts). The two parameters control where the back
porch is positioned and they interact to a degree.
By adjusting these parameters, you control the start of the back
porch (with respect to the trailing edge of Horizontal Sync) and
also its width. The place where the Back Porch begins with
respect to the Horizontal Sync pulse and the width of the Back
Porch have a direct bearing on where the active (visible) portion of the image
begins. Do not attempt this adjustment without monitoring the results with an
oscilloscope.

H/V Sync

There are standards for all current computer and broadcast resolutions that specify
the correct width of both Vertical and Horizontal synchronizing pulses.
If you are creating a special, non-standard resolution, you may wish to adjust the
pulse width to fit your new requirements. The H/V Sync screen is where that is
accomplished.
Like the H/V Start adjustment, you must use an oscilloscope
when making these adjustments so that you know exactly how
many milliseconds or microseconds of pulse width you have
created. The numbers shown are relative numbers and not an
actual time measurement.

Sync can be either negative polarity or positive polarity. To further complicate
things, it is possible that you may want to make the Horizontal Sync polarity
different from the Vertical Polarity. This control allows you to make that change.

+H+V
-H+V

This is an information page showing when the currently installed software was
released. The information is useful to the user as he or she compares the date to
the website information describing the current software release.
Normally, the user will examine the added features of each new
software release and determine if an update is worth doing in
their particular operation. The greater period of time between the
current date, and the date shown for the currently installed
software, the greater the likelihood that there are useful changes and
improvements present in the new release.

RS232 PORT
9.1
Connection
Your unit is fitted with a standard ‘D9’ plug or socket allowing it to be controlled
from a computer or other type of terminal or console with a similar interface. Most
computers fitted with an RS232 port, known as a ‘COM’ port, will have a ‘D9’ plug
on them. To enable connection between the two devices you will require one of two
cables as shown below:
D9 connector type
on C2 unit
Plug – common on earlier C2 units
Socket – common on recent C2 units
RS232 cable type required
for linking to PC
‘Null-mode’ D9 socket to socket
D9 plug to socket
Should your PC not have an RS232/COM port, it is possible to add an interface
card into the PC to add this facility. Another option you could use is a USB to
RS232 converter. Both methods will add a COM port to your PC, although you
should be aware that these generally do not default to being ‘COM1’ which is the
default most RS232 applications will use.
The default baud rate is 57600 with 8 data bits, 1 stop bit and no parity. This baud
rate can be changed in the System menu to suit other programs if need be.
9.2
Communications protocol
The standard communications protocol for your unit is text-based and is detailed on
our website. Also on our website, you can find the Windows Control Panel for your
unit.
The protocol is also bi-directional (unit and computer both send messages to each
other), so that you can send changes to the unit, and it will also respond with any
changes made via alternate methods (front panel buttons, menu changes and infrared control). This enables any attached computer to be aware of any changes
made to the unit from an alternative source rather than itself.
What this means is that you can easily find out the exact command to send to the
unit to tell it to perform a certain function. This can be seen by the data that is sent
back to the computer when changing values on the unit. For instance, just by
turning FREEZE on, by pressing the FREEZE button, will cause RS232 data to be
sent to the computer that represents the command required to set FREEZE on. A
second press, to turn FREEZE off, then sends the computer the command required
to turn the FREEZE off.
Note: Any command you send to the unit will be replied to either with an error code
or with the actual changed value. This may be different to the one you sent; for
example, if trying to set a value too high or too low.

RS232 / IP CONTROL SPECIFICATION
PLEASE NOTE: Not all units support RS232 and/or IP (Ethernet) communications
– check to see if this feature is present on your unit.
This section outlines how to control a unit via an RS232 or Ethernet link (if fitted to
your unit), using ASCII-based commands. It details how to send and receive serial
data to perform many of the functions that a user has access to on the unit.
Not all units will support the full range of adjustments listed – this will depend on the
complexity of the unit you have.
10.1
Communication protocol basics
Packets of ASCII data containing hexadecimal numbers are exchanged between
the unit and controller via an RS232 or IP link (you cannot use both at the same
time).
The RS232 standard is 57600 baud, 8 bits, no parity and 1 stop bit, although this
can be changed by the user (see ‘System’ menu).
No flow control is used - however all control packets start with an ASCII 'F', end
with carriage-return (13 decimal, 0x0D hexadecimal) and all such packets sent to
the unit will be acknowledged (thereby provided software handshaking). Note that
a line-feed (LF) should not be sent.
It may take around 30ms (0.03 seconds) for an RS232 command to be actioned
and acknowledged – this will vary between different models.
ASCII-hex data is used where a number is encoded into its hexadecimal equivalent
with leading zeros – e.g. Where '00' is decimal value 0, '80' is decimal 128 and 'FF'
is decimal 255. In other words, two characters are sent for each byte encoded.
Any gap of more than 1 second between the characters of a control command sent
will cause a time-out - and previous characters sent will be lost.
Write packets (sending command functions to the unit) are always 20 characters
long (including a carriage return at the end). The unit will respond with a full 20
character message indicating what has changed. This returned payload will reflect
the actual value of the parameter changed. If the user requests a value out of
bounds then the limit value is used, and the payload will then reflect the limited
value used.
Read packets (sent to request information from the unit) are always 14 characters
long (including a carriage return at the end), the response from the unit will be a 20
byte message with the Write flag (since it is ‘writing’ the value back to the host) and
the ACK flag set.
53
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
The ACK flag will be returned as 0 if the command is invalid for some reason – for
example a bad FUNCTION, WINDOW, OUTPUT or PAYLOAD value. An ACK=0
message will be otherwise identical to the one you sent, so you know exactly which
message has the error.
Any changes made to the unit using the front panel controls will also cause the full
20 byte message to be sent indicating the change that has occurred, thus enabling
a program to stay ‘in-sync’ with the unit. In some cases (such as the execution of a
macro) multiple 20 bytes messages will be sent indicating all the parameters that
have been changed.
Only one message should be sent to the unit, another message can’t be sent until a
specific response is received from the unit (the user should look for a message with
the same WINDOW, OUTPUT and FUNCTION values as they sent). If no
message is received back within 1 second, there is likely to be a hardware
communication problem (or wrong baud rate, etc.).
If absolutely required, to simplify programming the user may send packets one after
the other with around 100ms (100 milliseconds) between each one. However, this
will not work for all packets (such as Zooming into Still Images / Testcards or
changing Logos) since this will cause the unit’s micro-controller to be busy, so the
user must experiment and satisfy themselves that this is possible.
10.2
Packet format
Below is a representation of data bytes in a single packet for a ‘Write’ to the unit to
set a value:
SOP CMD CHA WINDOW OUTPUT
FUNCTION PAYLOAD x 3 CS EOP
/ FUNCTION
Below is a representation of data bytes in a single packet for a ‘Read’ to the unit to
get a value:
SOP CMD CHA WINDOW OUTPUT
FUNCTION CS EOP

The table below details the function of each part of the packet:
Packet part
SOP
(Start of

Function
This is always the ASCII letter 'F' to indicate the packet start.
ASCII-hex byte to indicate the type of command being sent.
Each bit in the byte has a different function. Currently only the following
bits are defined:
Bit 7 = Write (0) or Read (1) request. Messages from the unit are
always Writes.
Bit 6 = ACK bit. Should be set to 0 for messages to the unit. ACK=1
54
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
CHA

returned means message was okay. ACK=0 returned means an error

Bit 4 = 0 Reserved for future use.
Bit 3 = 0 Reserved for future use.
Bit 2 = 1 This bit *must* be set.
Bit 1 = 0 Reserved for future use.
Bit 0 = 0 Reserved for future use.

MACRO
Or – for Macro related commands:
Bit 7..4 = 0 Reserved
Bit 3..0 = Macro number
Bit 7 = 0 (Reserved).
Bit 6..0 = Represents the window to be adjusted (for multi-channel units
only).
E.g. Window ‘A’ (the default for single-channel units) is sent as ‘41’
since 0x41 is ASCII for ‘A’. 0x61 is ASCII for ‘a’ (a Logo) and is sent as
‘61’.
Bit 7..4 = Number representing the output to adjust 0 = Output 1, 1 =
Output 2 (for multi-channel units).
Bit 3..2 = Reserved (set to 0).
Bit 1..0 = Bits 9 & 8 of the function code. (Remainder of bits [7..0] are in
FUNC LOW.)
E.g. If the function code is 0x234, and we want to adjust Output 2, then
this byte is 0x12
ASCII-hex byte to indicate the lowest 8 bits of the actual function to set
or receive (e.g. change Zoom value).
A later table details all the functions available.
A series of ASCII-hex bytes carrying the data to send.
Read requests have no payload - the payload is in the data sent back.
Write packets require a payload, and this is always in 'triple-bytes' - i.e.
3 bytes are required, MSB first.
e.g. '000001' is 1 in decimal, '010000' is 65536 in decimal, and
'FFFFF0' is -16 in decimal.
55
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
CS
ASCII-hex byte that is the (check) sum of all previous bytes (excluding
the SOP 'F' character).
E.g. The command F0400410082000001C8 has the checksum of
04+00+41+00+82+00+00+01=C8, so the complete command to send is
F0400410082000001C8.
A short-cut for debugging allows the checksum to be replaced by 2
question marks, so in the previous example you could send
F0400410082000001?? Instead. This is purely for test and debugging you should normally use a checksum to ensure data validity.
This is a carriage return (no line-feed) - ASCII code 13 (decimal).

These are grouped together into their associated on-screen menus.
Your unit and this manual should be used to determine the actual function of each

Reading and writing macros
Depending on the unit connected there can be up to 7 macros stored in the unit.
These macros can be programmed to perform a specific task, for example enable
PIP mode, Position pip window at H=0, V=0, Zoom in to 120%.
The WIN and OUT bytes are not used for macro reading or writing and should be
set to WIN=1A and OUT = 0
The CHA byte indicates the macro we are programming / reading / running. Macro
1 to 5 are CHA 0..4, CHA=5 is restore, CHA 6..7 are Macros 6..7.
Macro Restore (CHA=5) is read only, the units restore state is set by sending the
Store command (0C8).

The above example shows the read for all the items within macro 0. The first
command reads the number of items available in the macro and resets the read
address. Then the following items read the function and then the data for each of
the items in the preset/macro. Following a read of the data for a macro internally
the next item in the macro is selected for reading so it is not possible to read the
same item twice without first re-reading the number of items in the macro.

COMMON OPERATIONS
This section provides step by step instructions for some common operations.
11.1
Operation of the Keyer
Some units come equipped with a very powerful Luminance and Chrominance
Keyer. The Keyer can take some time to master and below is a breakdown and
series of simple steps to help you master the Keyer’s operation
When adjusting the values, please bear in the mind the following:
The Y value is the Luminance value, so 0 is black and 255 is very bright (white).
The U value is the B-Y component. This is the difference between the Blue and the
Luminance value. If part of an image is black, grey or white, then its value is 128
(being the mid-point).
The V value is the R-Y component. This is the difference between the Red and the
Luminance value. If part of an image is black, grey or white, then its value is 128
(being the mid-point).
11.1.1 Preparation:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Enter the Adjust windows menu.
Select the Source (this will be the foreground).
Exit the Adjust windows menu.
Enter the Adjust keyers menu.
Ensure the Keyer is Off.
Set all Y, U and V min/max values to [0] [255].
Set all Y, U and V softness values to 0.
Set all Y, U and V invert values to Off.
Turn the Keyer On.
At this point your source image will have disappeared, since all colors have been
keyed out.
11.1.2 Adjustment:
Knowing which color(s) you want to key out from the image, e.g. black to
disappear, perform the following set of steps:
1. Increase the Y Key Min from 0 until just before the required color (Key Color)
appears.
2. Decrease the Y Key Max from 255 until just before the required color (Key Color)
appears.
3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the U and V min/max values as well.
Adjust any of the Softness values to improve the key. If your input signal is slightly
noisy or if you want to soften the edges within the image, then this may require you
67
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
to decrease the ‘min’ values and increase the ‘max’ values to broaden the range of
colors keyed out.
At this point, only the key color should remain transparent.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT
If problems are experienced, please read through the symptom topics below in
order to resolve the problem. After doing so, if you still need to, contact Technical
Support at http://www.tvone.com/support. Please have the following details of
the problem handy:
Whether the problem happens only at specific times or has only just started
occurring (and what other things have changed at the same time).
Firmware revision numbers - found in the first item of the System menu:
If the problem relates to a specific source or resolution:
12.1
There is no picture on the Output.
If no LEDs are on, then ensure that the AC power adaptor is connected properly
and the power switch is on at the AC outlet.
If the Standby/ON LED on the unit is off but another blue LED is active then check
that the monitor output from the computer is connected at both the computer and
the unit. Check that the output connector you are using from the unit is also
connected at the unit and the display equipment.
Check that the display video equipment is set to the correct line input and
format/standard as appropriate.
Check that the device connected to the output is on and can support the resolution
set in the Adjust output menu, ensuring that the Sync type e.g. RGBHV, is also set
correctly.
12.2
The image is shifted and not fully viewable
There are several ways to correct this, depending on the actual problem, although
it’s generally best to perform a Factory reset.
Try an AUTOSET if the input is RGB or YUV/YCbCr. Next adjust the TL pos. adj.
values in the Setup Program source menu until the incoming video signal is
displayed correctly. You may also need to adjust the BR size adj. setting to ensure
the incoming video signal is properly displayed.
12.3
The output resolutions no longer appear as expected.
Because any changes made in the Adjust resolutions menu are automatically
stored, it may be that the resolution data has become altered or corrupted beyond
the ability of a display to show it.
Either manually correct the resolution data, or restore the data to full factory
conditions by doing a firmware update. The user should avoid altering the
resolution parameter data unless absolutely necessary.
69
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
12.4
There is excessive flicker on the Output.
Try using a different Flicker reduction mode. Turning the contrast down and the
brightness up on the output device can have a large effect on flicker. Or try
adjusting the brightness and contrast of the source input by selecting the Input
adjust menu.
12.5
The Output image is distorted.
This may occur where some of the areas of the image are very dark and others are
very bright. The solution is to adjust the contrast and brightness settings on your
Output device to rectify the problem.
Alternatively, if the Adjust resolutions menu has been used to the output resolution
in question, a firmware update is recommended to perform a FULL factory reset.
12.6
Some colors appear to be incorrect on the CV/YC output
First try altering the color, contrast and brightness settings on your TV or video
display. These are usually set up for a very different reason than viewing computer
graphics and may need changing to suit. If you cannot achieve exactly what you
desire then alter the inputs levels in Adjust sources until the correct colors are

How can I reduce color smearing on CV connections?
Smearing usually occurs on Composite Video connections and is generally
unavoidable - unless you can switch to using S-Video or RGB / YUV connections. It
occurs because the brightness and color information is transmitted as one
combined (composite) signal and the two parts have to be 'bandwidth-limited' to
avoid them interfering with each other – which then reduces the quality.
12.8
I can no longer adjust the Output image resolution.
When the unit is in Lock mode, the output resolution is fixed to be the same as the
Lock source input resolution. During this time the Output image menu item is not
displayed.
12.9
The picture on the video display is black and white.
Ensure that all the cables are correctly connected. If you are using a PAL TV to
display the output then the unit may be providing resolution set to NTSC mode, or
vice versa.
12.10
The picture on the video display is green.
The Output type is probably incorrectly set to YUV mode, whereas you are
connecting to an RGB monitor – see Adjust outputs menu.
70
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
12.11
The RGB input is selected but the image is rolling or pink.
Check the Adjust sources menu and confirm that the input type and sync method is
set correctly. (Having YUV input selected, instead of RGBHV often causes this
problem).
12.12
The video signal from my DVD player does not appear to work.
Some DVD players have a switch at the back that selects between ‘Component’
and ‘S-Video’ output, because most will not let you output both at the same time.
Make sure it is in the right position for the output you want.
12.13
The output from the 1T-CT-464 is blue.
Please swap the Pb and Y connectors on the 1T-CT-464 so that the Y of the
screen connects to Pb on the receiver and Pb on the screen connects to the Y of
the receiver.
12.14
No video present from the UTP output.
Ensure that the receiver connected is supported, adjust the gain and offset
adjustments to be minimum levels and ensure that a straight through UTP cable of
at least Category 5 rating is being used.
The UTP output is not compatible with Ethernet network Hub’s and Switches.

RETURN PROCEDURE
Before returning your unit for repair, there are several checks you can make
yourself to make sure the problem is actually caused by a failure.
13.1
Are you sure there's a fault?
Many 'faults' are due to incorrect set-up or use so a simple checklist is provided
below to help you identify potential problems.
Set the unit up with your equipment as described in this manual and run through
the checklist. This will hopefully determine whether or not the unit is actually faulty
and prevent units from being returned unnecessarily.
Check the Troubleshooting tips of this manual and check out the various FAQ
(Frequently Asked Questions) listings on the support website,
http://www.tvone.com/support, which shows the latest Hints, Tips and Solutions.
Don’t presume it is the unit that is causing the problem. Check that the equipment
being used with it is fully working and setup correctly – bypass the unit if possible
by connecting the video source directly to the video display.
Check the AC power. Is it present and is the unit turned on? Check that all cables
are properly plugged in and are not damaged and then make certain that all
equipment connected to the unit is working properly.
Perhaps you have a “frozen” unit and you cannot change an input nor exit from the
current task. In that case, a simple 'Factory Reset' of the product may sort the
problem out. See earlier section on Front panel buttons to do this. Note that all
user-settings will be lost following an engineering reset.
It is also worth ensuring that the latest firmware is installed in the unit – although,
again, user settings are lost during a firmware update.
13.2
To return a unit for repair
First contact TV One using the http://www.tvone.com/support website. Support
personnel will determine whether a return to the factory is the appropriate solution.
If that’s the case, a Return Authorization Number will be issued. You should
provide the following information for each unit:
Product type
Serial number of the faulty unit (this is on the underside of the unit)
Full details of fault
Invoice number (if available)
Units should be returned via insured carrier or registered mail (thus allowing a trace
to be made if the Processor is lost in transit), with shipping costs and insurance
arranged at your own risk and expense. Goods in transit are the responsibility of
the sender and the supplier will not be responsible for transit losses.
72
1T-C2-750 & 1T-C2-760 OPERATION MANUAL
Please clearly state the return number on the outside packaging and on any
accompanying documentation. This will greatly speed up processing.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT return a unit for warranty repair without first obtaining
a Return Authorization Number. No action will be taken on a unit returned in
warranty for repair without a Return Authorization Number.
