Feature Highlights
After you have experienced the exciting new world of personal television, you will never watch plain old television again. No videotapes. No hassles. No compromises. Pause live television. With ReplayTV, it’s easy to quickly find and automatically record
your favorite television shows, so you can watch them whenever you want—on your schedule, not somebody else’s. Also,
ReplayTV allows you to share content among multiple units in a home network.

Control live television. Pause, rewind, fast forward, play in slow motion, or watch an instant replay—all without missing a single scene. See “Controlling Live Television” on page 28.
Automatically record every episode of your favorite shows, or constantly find and record shows that interest you. Schedule a
recording once and ReplayTV does the rest. See “Recording Shows” on page 35.
Use QuickSkip to jump past recorded segments 30 seconds at a time. See “Using QuickSkip” on page 30.
No need to channel surf any more. Use the Channel Guide to see what’s on now and what’s coming up later without repeatedly
changing channels. See “Using the Channel Guide” on page 33.
Locate shows that you want to watch without searching through pages of program schedules. The Find Shows feature locates
shows based on specific titles, actors, directors, and topics that you choose. See “Find Shows” on page 38.
Use an Ethernet connection to download Channel Guide information via broadband. It must be connected at all times. See
“Home Network Connections” on page 12.
Watch shows recorded on other ReplayTVs in your home. If you have more than one ReplayTV, you can watch shows in one
room that were recorded in another. Or, start watching a show in one room, then continue watching the show in another room,
right from where you left off. See “Watching Shows Recorded on other ReplayTVs” on page 47.
Transfer digital photos from your PC to your ReplayTV to create and view slide shows of your vacation or other photo collections. Additionally, you can display your photos when you press Pause or when the screen saver starts. See “Using the Photo
Viewer” on page 50.

:: Basic Connections
Connections
This chapter describes how to connect ReplayTV to your TV and other devices, including your home network. You will find
detailed connection options not found on the Quick Setup Guide. If you have not already, take a look at the Quick Setup Guide
before reading this chapter.
You may not need to use all the cables provided with ReplayTV. Your setup will depend on the components (Cable box, satellite
receiver, VCR, home network, etc.) you use. During setup, you may be called upon to identify one or more of the following cables:
RF cable (included) delivers the signals broadcast by your cable TV company, or local stations. You can also
use this supplied cable to connect ReplayTV directly to your television. Provides lowest audio and video quality.
Basic
Operations
S-Video cable (not included) delivers high quality video signal from ReplayTV to your television or monitor.
Older-model TVs may not support S-Video. Because S-Video cable only provides the video signal, it must be
used in combination with both of the audio plugs (red and white) on an A/V cable.
Setup
Cable Overview
Advanced
Features
Component Video cables (not included) connect from the Progressive Out (Y, Pb, Pr) jacks on ReplayTV to
deliver high quality video signals to your television or monitor. Older-model TVs may not have a Progressive
input. Because component video cables only provide the video signal, they must be used in combination with
both of the audio plugs (red and white) on an A/V cable. Provides the highest video quality.
Help
A/V cable (included) delivers audio and video signals from ReplayTV to your television or monitor. The red
and white plugs deliver stereo audio. The yellow plug delivers video. Provides better audio and video quality
than coaxial cable.

ReplayTV5.5 UG.book Page 8 Friday, August 1, 2003 10:58 AM
Serial cable (not included) lets ReplayTV change the channels on DirecTV satellite receivers, many of which
use serial cables for communication.
IR blaster cable (included) lets ReplayTV change the channels on your cable box or satellite receiver if it does
not support the serial cable. The IR blaster emitters need to be affixed directly over the IR detector on your satellite receiver or cable box. See “Connecting the IR Blaster” on page 10.
9-pin to 15-pin adapter (not included) connects your satellite receiver to ReplayTV if the satellite receiver uses
a 15-pin serial cable.
RJ-11 to 9-pin adapter (not included) connects your satellite receiver to ReplayTV if the satellite receiver uses
a telephone cable in place of a serial cable. RCA models DRD221RD, DRD222RD, DRD223RD, and
DS2122RD all require use of this adapter.
Ethernet cable (not included) connects to the ETHERNET jack on ReplayTV, allowing you to connect
ReplayTV to a broadband network. If you have a home network, you should leave ReplayTV connected to it at
all times, because ReplayTV will use it to receive Channel Guide listings.

ReplayTV5.5 UG.book Page 9 Friday, August 1, 2003 10:58 AM
:: Planning your Setup
ReplayTV controls and records the television signals you receive (satellite, cable, antenna, or a combination of all three). The signal(s) connect directly to the ReplayTV inputs. The outputs from ReplayTV connect to a television, monitor, or A/V receiver. You
can also connect a VCR to ReplayTV and save shows you have recorded to videotape. See “Saving Recordings to Videotape” on
page 46 for more information. ReplayTV is not intended to record signals sent by DVD players and video game systems. Connect
DVD players and video game systems directly to your television, not to ReplayTV.
Checking your Satellite Receiver
ReplayTV receives broadcast signals from satellite receivers through S-Video or A/V cables. ReplayTV can send channel-changing
signals to your satellite receiver through a serial cable or the supplied IR blaster. Use the IR blaster if your DirecTV satellite
receiver does not have a serial port or support serial control.
If the remote control for your satellite receiver has a “UHF” label, or if your satellite receiver uses a small antenna, your satellite
receiver is radio controlled. DISH Network satellite receivers are either UHF only, UHF and IR (infrared), or IR only. ReplayTV
does not support UHF-only receivers. Serial control is not supported by DISH receivers.

Connecting ReplayTV to a VCR
Connect ReplayTV to a VCR if you want to watch or save your recordings on videotape. Deleting recordings from the Replay Guide will preserve hard drive space.
• Connect an A/V cable from the OUTPUT jacks on ReplayTV to the

You can connect a video camera or VCR from its Outputs to the
Inputs on ReplayTV and record the content onto ReplayTV using
the Manual Record feature. See “Using Manual Record” on
page 40.
Connecting Cable Box and Satellite Receiver Controllers
If you connect a cable box or satellite receiver to ReplayTV, you will need to attach a controller cable so ReplayTV can change the
channels on either of these components. The controller, either a serial cable or the supplied IR blaster cable, will act as a remote
control for these components. Serial control is only supported by DirecTV receivers.
Connecting the Serial Cable
ReplayTV 5500
If your satellite receiver supports serial cable, use a serial cable as a controlling cable. Connect the serial cable to the SERIAL connector on ReplayTV and to the serial port on your cable box or satellite receiver. If your receiver uses a 15-pin serial connector, use
a 15-pin to 9-pin adapter. If you have a satellite receiver that uses telephone cable in place of serial cable, you will need to use an
RJ-11 to 9-pin adapter to connect the satellite receiver to ReplayTV. RCA models DRD221RD, DRD222RD, DRD223RD, and
DS2122RD will all require this adapter. (Serial cables and adapters are available at www.replaytv.com.)
Connecting the IR Blaster
Use the IR blaster if your satellite receiver or cable box does not support serial cable.
Locate the infrared detector on your cable box or satellite receiver
The infrared emitter at the end of the IR blaster must be placed directly over the infrared detector on
your cable box or satellite receiver. The infrared detector receives the signals from the ReplayTV
remote control.

Getting
Started
If the infrared detector on the unit is not labeled, follow these steps:
1 Refer to the owner’s manual of your cable box or satellite receiver. It may be shown there.
2 Look for an area of dark, nearly opaque plastic on the front of the unit. If you find this area,
look closely into it. You may be able to see the infrared detector behind it. If it is visible, you
should see a small square frame with a reddish area in the center. This is the infrared detector.
Skip to “Connect and affix the IR blaster.”
3 Shine a flashlight through the dark plastic area on the front of the unit. If you see the infrared
detector, skip to “Connect and affix the IR blaster.”
4 Using the remote control for your cable box or satellite receiver, turn the power on and off.
Do not use the ReplayTV remote control.
5 With the remote control in one hand, place the other hand over one section of the front of the
unit.
6 Try to turn the power on and off. If you succeed, your hand is not covering the infrared detector.
7 Move your hand to a different place on the front of the unit and repeat steps 5 and 6. Keep
repeating in this manner until you cannot turn the power on and off. At this point, your hand
is covering the infrared detector.

After you connect the IR blaster, you will test to see if it works by trying to turn on your cable box or
satellite receiver using the IR blaster. You will do this during the on-screen setup process by providing
ReplayTV with the setup code number for your cable box or satellite receiver. If the test fails, you may
still be able to use that code to change channels.

Completing the On-screen Setup
After completing all the connections to your components and home network (if you chose to do so), you will need to complete
ReplayTV’s on-screen setup process. The setup process requires you to indicate the following:
• If you are using a broadband or modem connection
• Your ZIP code so ReplayTV will receive the correct channels for your area
• The brand of your cable box or satellite receiver connected and the cables used to complete the connections

If you have a home network, you can connect ReplayTV to it using the ETHERNET connection. This connection will allow you to
watch shows recorded on another ReplayTV in your home, and transfer photos from your PC to ReplayTV. The following sections
provide instructions for setting up ReplayTV to use the networking features. Refer to “Advanced Features” on page 47 to learn how
to use the features.
ReplayTV needs its own IP address to communicate with other devices on your network. It will automatically search for an IP
address during the first-time Quick Setup process. If an IP address is not automatically found, you will have to enter it manually.
See “Entering Networking Information Manually on ReplayTV” on page 16.

If you are connecting ReplayTV to a broadband network, plug an Ethernet cable into the ETHERNET jack on ReplayTV and to
an available Ethernet jack on your network (on a wall, hub, switch, or router).
Turn ReplayTV on. You will see the Quick Setup screen in a few minutes. ReplayTV will automatically request an IP address
from the network.
After a successful test, you will be asked to enter your ZIP code and continue with setup.
If you have firewall software installed or a router with a built-in firewall, the default settings should work fine. See “Router
Setup” on page 16.
If ReplayTV does not find a DHCP server (normally your router), you will need to manually set up the network connection.
You will need to enter the following information manually:
• IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway address and DNS Server address.
ReplayTV5.5 UG.book Page 13 Friday, August 1, 2003 10:58 AM
Using a router to connect ReplayTV to your cable modem is recommended. The router will allow you to share your cable modem
without needing additional IP addresses from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If your ISP requires that you log on or use special software on your PC in order to access the Internet, you will need a router. Consult your ISP for requirements. Refer to the following connection examples for details.

Use a recommended router that your ISP supports and
connect it directly to your cable modem. (See “Recommended Routers” on page 16.) If you have a single-port
router, you will also need a hub or a switch to connect
more than one device to the router.
Turn on your router. Refer to the router’s user guide to
set up the router. The default configuration of the router
is normally sufficient. By default, most routers have
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) enabled
for automatically assigning IP addresses.
You can connect ReplayTV directly to the router, or to a
hub or switch that is connected to the router. Refer to
“Connecting ReplayTV to an Existing Network” on
page 12 to complete the setup.

Connecting directly to a cable modem (no router)
If you are connecting ReplayTV directly to a cable modem, you need to have an additional IP address from your ISP for ReplayTV. Before setting up ReplayTV, you
should verify with your ISP that a device like ReplayTV is supported. You may need to
specify the IP address on ReplayTV. See “Entering Networking Information Manually

Verify that there is no special software or log on required for Internet access.
Verify that no settings other than the IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway address, and
DNS Server address are required. (For example, some broadband connections require
that a DNS suffix be entered on your PC for Internet access to work.)
Check to see if your ISP requires the MAC address of devices like ReplayTV for Internet connectivity. (Some ISPs require the MAC address of network devices in order to
automatically assign it an IP address. See “Determining the ReplayTV MAC (Media
Access Control) Address” on page 17.

Watching shows on another ReplayTV
1 Plug both ReplayTVs into your hub/switch.
2 Set up both ReplayTVs to connect using the phone line.
Once both are set up, they will automatically “find” each other on your network. See “Watching Shows Recorded on other ReplayTVs” on page 47.
Copying pictures from a PC to ReplayTV
Plug your PC and ReplayTV into your hub/switch.
Manually enter the network settings for the network card in your PC.
When set up to use the phone line, ReplayTV defaults to the following IP address range: 192.168.0.x. Set the IP address and
Subnet mask on your PC to 192.168.0.100 and 255.255.255.0. If you don’t know how to enter the IP address on your network
card, consult Windows Help or the documentation for your network card. See “Installing ReplayTV Photo Transfer” on page 49

Connecting ReplayTV to a DSL modem is the same as connecting it to a cable modem with a few exceptions. Refer to “Connecting
ReplayTV to a Cable Modem” on page 13 with the following additions.
• The DSL modem you own might be a DSL router. If you are not sure, contact your ISP or DSL modem provider. If it is a
router, it can automatically assign an IP address to ReplayTV. If you have PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) DSL
(you have to log on through software before you can access the Internet), you cannot connect ReplayTV directly to your DSL
modem unless it is also a router. PPPoE accounts require that the user log on with a username and password. Software is normally provided for your computer to do this. If you purchase a router to use with your PPPoE account, verify that it supports
PPPoE.

router. It does not matter if there is a hub between ReplayTV and the router.
• If ReplayTV is connected to a cable modem or DSL modem, then the network information you need is provided by your ISP.
You will need a separate IP address for ReplayTV.
• If ReplayTV is connected directly to your PC or through a hub, then you need the network information from the network card.

Determining the ReplayTV MAC (Media Access Control) Address
Connections
The IP address you specify on ReplayTV must be in the same range as the IP addresses of other computers or devices on the same
network, but not identical. For example, if the IP address of your computer is 192.168.0.1 with a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0,
then the ReplayTV IP address may be 192.168.0.x, where x can be any number from 2 to 254. No other device on your network can
use the same IP address as ReplayTV. See “Finding your Computer’s Network Information” on page 18.

Finding the Router IP Address
Help
Your router will have both a WAN (External) and LAN (Internal) IP address. If you are specifying the IP address on ReplayTV, the
information you will use to set up ReplayTV will come from the LAN settings.
• Check the documentation that shipped with your router. It normally has the default IP settings.
• If supported, use Netscape or Internet Explorer to look at the configuration settings on your router. For most routers, all you
need to do is enter the IP address of the router into your Web browser.
• Use the included software that shipped with your router to check its IP settings.
• If you have a PC connected to the router, you can use IPCONFIG or WINIPCFG on your PC to get the IP information you will
need. See “Finding your Computer’s Network Information” on page 18 for further details.

:: Controlling Live Television
The moment you turn on ReplayTV and your TV, ReplayTV automatically begins recording into a temporary space. ReplayTV will
continue to record even if you delay the broadcast by using the pause, rewind, or Instant Replay features. Recording only stops
when you change channels and begin watching a different show. The temporary space is then cleared and ReplayTV starts recording again.
Pausing live TV and Recorded Shows
ReplayTV’s pause feature lets you attend to interruptions without missing a moment of your favorite show. You can pause whatever you’re watching, whether it’s a live television broadcast or a recorded show in the Replay Guide. When you pause a live
broadcast, ReplayTV will continue recording it on the hard drive, so you won’t miss a single moment. ReplayTV will remain
paused until it has run out of free space on its hard drive.
1 Press Pause on the ReplayTV remote control.
After you press Pause, an on-screen message will appear to indicate the remaining pause time available.
2 Press Play to continue playing the program from the point you paused.
or
3 Press Return to Live to return to the live broadcast.
Pause options include:
• Press Display to view program information.
• Press Exit to remove the on-screen display.
• Press FAST FORWARD to use the frame advance feature.
ReplayTV 5500
Using Rewind and Fast Forward
ReplayTV gives you the power to Rewind or Fast Forward through both live and recorded programs. When using Rewind and Fast
Forward, remember how ReplayTV works: ReplayTV is always recording, but recording will stop, and then start again, whenever
you change channels. You cannot rewind a program to a point before you started watching it, nor can you fast forward a program to
a point beyond the live broadcast.
To use Rewind while watching a show:
1 Press Rewind for 1x rewind.
2 Press Rewind again for 2x rewind.
3 Press Rewind again for 4x rewind.
4 Press Rewind again for 16x rewind.
5 Press Rewind again for 20x rewind.

3 Repeatedly press Fast Forward to advance frame-by-frame.
To stop Frame Advance:

Or
2 Press Return to Live to return to the live broadcast.
Using Instant Replay
The Instant Replay feature lets you jump back seven seconds during a live or recorded show. It’s the perfect way to ensure you
don’t miss a single word of dialogue in your favorite movie, or if you want to watch a great play over again at the touch of a button.
You can also use the number buttons to jump back a specific number of minutes. For example, pressing the numbers 1-0 and then
the Instant Replay button will jump back exactly 10 minutes.
To use Instant Replay while watching a show:
1 Press Instant Replay on the ReplayTV remote control.

Using QuickSkip
You can use the QuickSkip feature to quickly jump 30 seconds ahead during live or recorded shows. QuickSkip is perfect for jumping past undesired scenes without having to watch them as you would using fast forward. QuickSkip can only be used during live
broadcasts if you are watching the show delayed by more than 30 seconds.
You can also use the number buttons to jump ahead a specific number of minutes. For example, pressing the numbers 1-0 and then
the QuickSkip button will jump ahead exactly 10 minutes.

Watching Shows Blocked by V-Chip Technology
Although ReplayTV supports V-Chip technology, your TV controls the actual V-Chip settings. Your TV may display a message

ReplayTV 5500
Press the DISPLAY button to list all
of these shows
If there is a conflict with an existing single show recording, the day and date of the conflict are shown, for example “Tue 1/7.” If the
conflict is with several episodes of a repeating recording, the number of shows that would conflict is shown, for example “6
shows.”
• Schedule new recording anyway
Choose this to record the show you’re trying to schedule. The new show will record instead of the scheduled recordings with
which it conflicts.
• Record shows that don’t conflict
If the new recording is a repeating recording, this additional option is available. This option sets up the new recordings and
keeps in place any scheduled recordings that don’t conflict.
• Schedule on another ReplayTV
This option is only available if you have networked ReplayTVs. To schedule the show on another ReplayTV, choose the
ReplayTV on which you want to record from the menu that displays and press Select.

Shows at Risk of Deletion
Shows that are at risk of deletion are colored gray in the Replay Guide. Shows will be deleted when space is needed for new recordings. This allows you to decide whether to watch the show now or to preserve it by choosing “Keep until I delete” on the show’s
menu. As long as there is more than four hours remaining (at the default recording quality), you will never see any of your shows at
risk.
If there are less than four hours of free space available, the oldest show(s) are identified and considered at risk of deletion. A show
is deemed “at risk” when the following occurs:
• It is a single show recording and the Keep until option is set to “Space needed” or, it is a repeating show recording and the
Delete oldest option is set to “if space needed.”
• It is a show that would be automatically deleted to make room should a four-hour show at the default quality be recorded.
Saving Recordings to Videotape
ReplayTV is not intended to be used as a long-term storage device. You can free up more recording space by transferring your
recordings to videotape and watching them on your VCR.
Before saving a recording to videotape, make sure your VCR is connected properly to ReplayTV. See “Connecting ReplayTV to a
VCR” on page 10 for more information. If ReplayTV is connected to your VCR using A/V or S-Video cables, your VCR must be
set to Line or Aux Input. If your VCR is set to channel 3, it’s using the RF/Coaxial Input.
• To save a recording to videotape:
1. Turn on your VCR.
2. Insert a videotape into your VCR.
3. Press Replay Guide.
4. Highlight the recording you want to save to videotape.
5. Press Select.

• Confirm that the correct line input is selected on your TV. (Press the TV/Video button on your TV to cycle through
inputs.)
• Confirm that ReplayTV is not in standby mode by pressing the power button on the front of ReplayTV. Verify that
the blue Power light on the unit is illuminated.
• If you are using the Component Video Out on ReplayTV, you need to connect the yellow video cable from the
A/V cable during the first-time Quick Setup process.
• If you are using an A/V receiver in your setup, verify that the input source is the same as the output source going
to your television. For example, if you are using an S-Video output to connect ReplayTV to an A/V receiver, you
will need to use an S-Video output to connect your A/V receiver to your TV. This is a limitation of most A/V
receivers.

Cable Box and Satellite Receiver Control
When I select a channel in the Channel Guide, the channel number does
not change on my satellite receiver
or cable box.
• If you are using an IR blaster connection to control channel changing, verify that the IR blaster cable is securely
attached to the IR BLASTER jack on ReplayTV, and that you have affixed the IR emitter directly over the IR
detector on your cable box or satellite receiver.
• Shine a flashlight into the opaque IR front panel on your cable box or satellite receiver to verify the location of the
IR detector.
• Confirm that you have selected the correct IR code for your cable box or satellite receiver. Even if an IR code fails
to turn the unit on or off, it can still be used to successfully change channels.
• Try all the other IR codes listed for your cable box or satellite receiver brand. If none work, try the codes listed
under “Other.”
My cable box sometimes fails to
change channels when using the
ReplayTV remote control.
• If you are using the IR blaster, your cable box receives IR commands from both the ReplayTV remote and the IR
blaster. Some cable boxes can be confused by this. You can block the commands from the ReplayTV remote control by affixing an opaque covering around the area where you have placed the IR emitter on your cable box. Do
not cover the IR emitter.
The IR blaster occasionally misses
channel change commands.
Sometimes the IR blaster sends too strong of a signal to your cable box or satellite receiver, causing it to miss a digit
in the channel-change sequence.
• Affix the IR emitter next to or 1/2 inch away from the IR detector on your cable box or satellite receiver instead of
directly over it.
• Adjusting the settings for an IR blaster code can improve performance. Contact Customer Care for details on fine
tuning your IR blaster code.
I can’t change channels on my DISH
Networks satellite receiver.
• ReplayTV cannot control your DISH receiver if it is UHF controlled. Check if your DISH receiver supports both
IR and UHF. If it supports both, you need to change the remote ID value on the DISH receiver to 1.

:: Glossary
Bridge - A Bridge allows the free flow of data from one type of physical medium to another. For example, a bridge is required to connect a phoneline network to
an Ethernet network.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) - This is the method by which computers, and ReplayTV, automatically get IP addresses. By default,
ReplayTV will attempt to get its IP address automatically when it’s starting up. It will attempt to renew this IP address every 24hrs. ReplayTV is considered a
DHCP client. The router that automatically assigns the IP address to ReplayTV is considered a DHCP server.
DMZ Host Page - A host on a network that prevents outside users from accessing data on your network. Depending on your router, it might be necessary to add
the IP address of ReplayTV to the DMZ host page. This will place ReplayTV outside of the firewall. This may be necessary if the router is not properly routing
the information it receives to ReplayTV. Check your router manual for more details on when using DMZ is appropriate.
DNS (Domain Name System) - A DNS server translates domain names like www.replaytv.com into their corresponding IP addresses.
DSL Router - A DSL router is simply a router that also functions as an external DSL modem. This DSL router would function as a DHCP server.
Gateway - The gateway address is the IP address of the computer or device on a local network that gives you access to the Internet. If you are using a router, it’s
the internal (LAN) IP address of the router.
Hub - A hub is like a splitter. It turns one port into 4, 8, 16, etc. The hub provides more physical ports and nothing else. The hub has an uplink port that sometimes can be switched to a standard port. You would normally connect your Cable or DSL modem to the uplink port. Your PCs or devices like ReplayTV would
plug into the non-uplink ports.
IP Address - This is a unique address that all computers and devices require to communicate over the Internet. Computers on corporate and home networks most
likely use IP addresses to communicate with each other. ReplayTV also requires an IP address to communicate. This address can be set manually or provided
automatically. Depending on your setup, this IP address might come from a router, or your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
ISP (Internet Service Provider) - A company that provides Internet access through telecommunications lines.
ReplayTV 5500
MAC Address (Media Access Control) - The unique hardware number of devices on a network. Some ISPs require the MAC address of a network device in
order to automatically assign it an IP address.
Router - In order for your computer to communicate to the Internet using a broadband connection, it not only requires a physical connection but also an IP
address. The router not only lets you share a physical connection (like a hub or switch), it also lets you share a single Internet IP address with more than one computer or device. Instead of needing three IP addresses for three computers in your home, you can purchase one for the router and the router will allow all three
computers in your home to share your Cable, DSL, ISDN, or Satellite connection. Some routers allow you to share a modem connection in this way. If you purchase a single port router, you will also need a hub or switch to connect more than one device to the router. If connecting a PC or ReplayTV directly to a single
port router, you must use a crossover cable.
If you have PPPoE DSL (requires that you use software to login for Internet access), you need to verify that any router you purchase also supports PPPoE.
Subnet Mask - This address is a filter that determines what part of the network your computer or ReplayTV is on. For example, many routers use 192.168.0.1
for an IP address and 255.255.255.0 for a subnet mask. Any computers or devices on your local network that has an IP address that matches 192.168.0.x will be
able to communicate with each other.
Switch - If you have a mix of 10 and 100Mbps devices or computers on your network, upgrading from a hub to a switch can greatly improve performance. Also,
if you have many devices on your network, the switch will give you better performance than the hub.

Digital Networks North America Inc. (“DNNA”) warrants your 5500 series ReplayTV (the “ReplayTV”) and any included ReplayTV accessories against defects
in material or workmanship as follows:
LABOR: For a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase (“Warranty Period”), if the ReplayTV is determined to be defective, DNNA will, at its sole
discretion, repair or replace the unit with new or refurbished goods, or pay the labor charges to any ReplayTV authorized service facility. After the Warranty

Warranty Service
ReplayTV 5500
To obtain warranty service, you must first obtain an RMA number (Return Merchandise Authorization) from a Technical Support Representative at DNNA. A
Technical Support Representative may be reached at (800) 933-5899. Once an RMA number is obtained, your ReplayTV must be shipped freight prepaid, in
either its original packaging or packaging affording an equal degree of protection, to the ReplayTV authorized distribution facility.
Important: When calling for an RMA number, please be prepared to answer some basic troubleshooting/setup related questions. It is helpful for you to call when
you are in front of your ReplayTV as you may be required to respond to operational instructions from a ReplayTV Technical Support Representative before
being issued an RMA.
Scope of and Limitation on Warranty
This warranty does not cover customer instruction, installation, set up adjustments or signal reception problems. This warranty does not cover cosmetic damage
due to acts of God, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence, commercial use, or modification of, or to any part of your ReplayTV.

A: We may use Personal Information collected through the Web site to complete a transaction you request. If you purchase a ReplayTV product, the Personal
Information collected for that transaction will be used to fill your order, get the product to you and bill you correctly. DNNA may also use your mailing address,
telephone number or email address to alert you to special offers, updated information and new services. If you don't want DNNA to contact you, you may opt-out
as discussed in the next question and answer below.
Non-Personal Information collected through our Web site is used for maintenance, monitoring and marketing uses, but Non-Personal Information will not be
linked to your identity without providing you an opportunity to opt out of such linking.
Q: What choices do I have regarding the collection and use of information from the www.replaytv.com and www.rioaudio.com Web sites?
A: When you submit Personal Information at our Web site, you can opt-out of receiving information from DNNA about ReplayTV and related products, promotions, and services by checking or removing the check from appropriate boxes. You may also set your Internet browser to reject cookies to limit the collection of
Non-Personal Information from our Web site, but this may affect your ability to use some parts of our Web site.
Q: Is registration information received over the telephone treated the same as information from the www.replaytv.com or www.rioaudio.com Web
sites?
A: Yes, Personal Information collected over the telephone is treated the same way as Personal Information collected on the website.
Q: What information does DNNA collect about my digital video recorder use?
A: When you purchase a ReplayTV digital video recorder, we ask you to register the product so we can provide you with the best possible service. You may register online at the www.replaytv.com Web site or by telephone. During registration, we ask you for Personal Information, including your name, address, phone
number, email address, and the serial number of your ReplayTV digital video recorder.
The ReplayTV digital video recorder is connected to your television and an Ethernet connection. During system setup and registration, we learn about how you
have connected your ReplayTV digital video recorder to your entertainment system and the programming signal sources available to you (antenna, cable, and/or
satellite). We also learn about where you are located, and use this information to determine what television channels and schedule are available to you. Each day,
the ReplayTV digital video recorder contacts DNNA to download a current TV schedule for you.
Other than as described above, we do not collect any information about the viewing or recording habits of you or other users of your ReplayTV unit. We do
reserve the right in the future to collect certain Non-Personal Viewing Data, such as which programs users record, which features users use, and other similar
data about your use of the ReplayTV Service, but such information would only be collected in the form of Non-Personal Information. Should we decide to collect this information, we would collect it on an aggregate basis, not connected to your Personal Information, though we could also sort such Non- Personal Infor-

mation by demographic or other categories. If we ever began to collect information about your viewing or recording habits that was connected to Personal
Information, we would always give you a chance to opt out from that collection (unless we are unable to do so for legal reasons).
Q: How does DNNA use the information it collects about my digital video recorder use?
A: Currently, we only use Personal Information collected during registration of your ReplayTV digital video recorder for diagnostic or service purposes or to
complete a transaction requested by you. We can use it, for example, to see if your ReplayTV unit is working properly. We can also use it when you contact our
Customer Care agents so they can help you with any service-related problems, and for warranty eligibility and fulfillment purposes. Again, we would not link
this information to Non-Personal Information or use it in other ways without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use.
Q: What choices do I have regarding the collection and use of information about my digital video recorder use?
A: Registration of your ReplayTV digital video recorder is not required to use the unit.
From time to time, we may send all of our customers information about our products and services that we consider essential to providing you the ReplayTV Service, including information about software upgrades, changes to the service, technical or administrative issues, legal matters, or other similar information. Users
of our products and services are not able to opt-out of these announcements.
If, in the future, we ever began collecting Personal Information connected to Non-Personal Information about viewing habits, we will provide you an opportunity
to opt out of such collection.
Q: Does DNNA share my information (gathered from either my use of the www.replaytv.com Web site, the www.rioaudio.com website or digital video
recorder) with any third parties?
A: DNNA will not share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent, except in the very limited circumstances outlined in the next question and answer below. Your Personal Information is not otherwise sold, marketed or shared with third parties without giving you the opportunity to opt out.
Should DNNA begin to start collecting Non-Personal Information from the ReplayTV digital video recorder or the ReplayTV Service, such Non-Personal Information may be shared with third parties for analysis or marketing purposes. For example, this information may be provided to advertisers or marketers who may
use it to target advertisements to your particular interests. Because it's Non-Personal, this information will not be linked to you without first giving you the
opportunity to opt out.
Q: Are there any special circumstances that may require my information (gathered from my use of www.replaytv.com Web site or my digital video
recorder or over the telephone) to be shared with third parties?
A: DNNA may disclose Personal Information and Non-Personal Information if required to do so by law, to protect and defend the rights or property of DNNA,
the ReplayTV Service or our viewers, whether or not required to do so by law, or to protect the personal safety of our viewers or the public. DNNA reserves the
right to contact appropriate authorities and disclose Personal or Non-Personal Information to them at its discretion when it appears that individuals using our
products or services are engaged in activities that may be illegal or violate the ReplayTV Activation and Service Agreement.
Should DNNA merge with or be acquired by another company, or if the business unit providing your service were sold to another company, then customer information maintained by DNNA, including Personal and Non-Personal Information, if any, may be transferred to and used by the resulting combined company.
From time to time we may also share Personal Information with third parties who perform certain services and functions on our behalf. These parties only have
access to the Personal Information they need to perform their functions and we require them to use the information only in connection with the services they provide for us.
Q: Can I correct the information collected about me?
A: DNNA believes in and supports your right to access and correct the Personal Information you have provided us. To do so, simply contact DNNA at 800-9335899 and we will make corrections that you request.
Q: Is all of my information kept securely?
A: DNNA has security measures in place that are designed to protect your information. All Personal Information and any Non-Personal Information is stored on
physically secured servers. Access to this information is strictly limited to individuals with a legitimate reason to have access and who have signed agreements
that prohibit the unauthorized use or disclosure of such information. In addition, all of DNNA’s stored information is firewall protected in a manner designed to
prevent unauthorized “hacks” into our systems. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of your data will not occur, we work hard to prevent
such occurrences.

Q: Does DNNA collect personal information about children?
A: We are very concerned about the safety and privacy of children. Therefore, DNNA will not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the
age of 13.
Q: Will this Privacy Policy ever be changed? How can I find out about any changes to this Privacy Policy?
A: Our privacy policy could change in the future. As our business and services expand and change, we will update this policy to provide you with information
about changes to our privacy policy, including how we treat Personal Information collected through our services.
Updates to this policy, including opportunities to opt out of data collection, will be posted on our Web site, and sent to your ReplayTV digital video recorder
along with a message sent to your ReplayTV message box indicating the policy has been updated, but in most cases will not be sent to you in any other way. We
encourage you to review this policy periodically to review any changes that have been posted.
One thing that will never change at DNNA is our commitment to your privacy.
Q: What if I have other questions?
A: If you have any questions or comments about our use of your information or about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at 800-933-5899 or via e-mail at privacy@replaytv.com. We will be happy to give you more information.
If you have a complaint about our use of your information, please let us know. We will promptly investigate and will comply fully with the legal and regulatory
supervisory authorities responsible for enforcing our adherence to the privacy principles stated above.

Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of
the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
Lightning For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or
cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power lines surges.
Power Lines An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power
lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When
installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power
lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
Overloading Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles
as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
Object and Liquid Entry Never push objects of any kind into this product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or
short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.
Servicing Do not attempt to service this product yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer
all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Damage Requiring Service Unplug this product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
•
When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
•
If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the product,
•
If the product has been exposed to rain or water,
•
If the product does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the
product to its normal operation,
•
If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way, and
•
When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance–this indicates a need for service.
Replacement Parts When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
Safety Check Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the
product is in proper operating condition.
