1. USING MARKS
If you are watching a recording AND you’ve got the progress bar up (by pressing the
info button), when you press the Mark button a small red line will appear on the
progress bar. That’s your Mark.
If you go back to the beginning of your recorded program and start watching a
recording again, then press the ‘Page up’ button PAGE + the show will jump to your
Mark position. PAGE +/ PAGEIf you had more than one Mark position it will go to the next one with each
subsequent press of the PAGE + Button
When you press the ‘Page Down’ button PAGE- it goes to the previous mark position
BUT you can’t press it twice to go back 2 marks, so you have to press PAGE + to cycle
through them all, till you finally get to the one you want.
To remove the mark...go past the mark you want to remove...hit the PAGE- button
and immediately hit the Mark button and it should remove it...
Hint: However one could use marks to quickly place jump points to ‘skip ads’ by using
a combination of the Jump and 30+ keys. You would just have to mark the start of
each section of the actual show and when you get to the end jump to the start of the
next. This hint would also apply to a manual recording where a 245 minute block was
recorded for two 2 hour shows and you want to mark the start of the second after you
have watched the first and come back for later viewing of the second.
2. STOP A RECORDING
From the normal viewing screen (not the timer list) do the following according to if
you have one or two channels recording at the one time.
If it is only ONE station recording, then if you press the STOP button once the
recording will stop and the 'No channel recording' message will appear.
If there are TWO stations recording, then when you press STOP a box will appear
in the top right hand corner of the screen. Move the highlight to the channel you wish
to stop by pressing the Up / Down  arrow and then press 'Stop' again. The
relevant timer should go to zero and the channel number will disappear from the two
line display in the top right hand corner of the screen. Press Exit to remove the box
from the screen or just wait and it will go on its own.

3. CONFIRM YOU ARE RECORDING
From the normal viewing screen (not the timer list) do the following.
a. If you are confirming it is only ONE station recording, press the Info. button once.
The information bar will have a small red dot indicating a Rec. is in progress on the
channel you are viewing. A small two line display in the top right hand corner of
the screen should already have appeared briefly if you press record whilst
watching TV.
b. If there are TWO stations recording, press the Info. button once, then when you
press STOP a box will appear in the top right hand corner of the screen. The
information bar will have a small red dot indicating a Rec. is in progress on the
channel you are viewing. A two line display in the top right hand corner of the
screen will show two channel numbers and a changing display showing the
number of minutes already recorded on each recording. Press Exit to remove the
box from the screen or just wait and it will close on its own.
4. ASPECT RATIO
With some large 4:3 CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) older style TV’s, the aspect button first
appeared to be missing one important selection.
It does 4:3, and 16:9, but seemed to be missing 4:3 centre cut (or zoom) for those
annoying older American 4:3 shows being shown in 4:3 in a 16:9 format. (Where you
end up with a tiny little picture with big black bars on all 4 sides).
In the menu, under “Play Settings” a selection for “AR Conversion” that toggles
between Letterbox, Pan Scan , and a few others. This is in addition to the 4:3 and 16:9
selection under the video settings in the menu. Pressing the Green button, does
the same thing. Combining the Aspect button, and the Green button, eventually
gives all the options.
5. CONFIRMING BOTH TUNERS ARE WORKING
1. Record 2 channels from different DataStreams at once such as Ch7HD and Ch9HD
and replay the recordings. ABC1 and ABC2 will not confirm.
2. Record any channel and then change channels and go through all of them to make
sure you can see all channels.
3. See Section 3.CONFIRM YOU ARE RECORDING.
Any of these methods will confirm that both tuners are working.

6. TIME SHIFT AND CHASE PLAYING
If ‘Time Shift’ is enabled in the PVR menu, the Bauhn 2400 continuously streams the
channel being watched (into a temporary recording buffer file). You can then pause,
rewind, fast forward & play through the “live” program.
If ‘Time Shift’ is disabled in the PVR menu, you need to press the PAUSE button to
time shift the program you’re watching. As above, you can then rewind, fast forward
& play through the “live” program using the buttons at the bottom of the remote.
The Time Shift buffer is cleared when you change the channel.
The Time Shift function is disabled when recording the channel you’re watching.
The difference between Time Shifting and Chase Playing
Both time shifting and chase playing refer to a situation where the picture that is
displayed onscreen is actually behind the “live” broadcast.
• Time Shifting: Watching a live broadcast from the beginning, or behind live time,
even though the show has already started.
• Chase Playing: Watching a recorded show from the beginning, or behind live time,
even though recording is not yet complete – i.e. it is still recording.
The key difference between Time Shifting and Chase Playing:
Chase-Play: Actually records the show. This means that there will still be a recorded
file on the hard disk after you press stop (to end the recording) or change channels.
This file can be played later.
Time Shifting: All information in the time shift buffer is lost when you: record the
channel being watched, change channels, enter certain menus etc. ]
If you do not have Time Shift on in the Menus
Press the Pause button and the picture will freeze and if you press the Pause button
again, the picture will unfreeze and you will be able to use the remote buttons to
pause, rewind, fast forward & play through the “live” program from the point where
you first pressed the pause button only. The Info Button will turn off the display bar
and turn it on again. The STOP Button cancels the buffer recording and you will go
back to “live” TV. In this last mode NO file is saved.

7. GLOSSARY
AC3: Dolby Digital is the common version containing up to six discrete channels of
sound, sometimes known as 5.1 Surround Sound. An AV receiver is needed to play this
sound
AR: Aspect Ratio of the TV display. This is affected by by settings on the PVR AND the
TV. (See Section 4 on Page 37, and Section 8 on Page 40 and Section 9 on Page 41)
LCN: Logical Channel Number. The LCN is the digital channel number that is used to
select a channel on the PVR. LCNs are constant. Don't confuse the LCN with the UHF
channel; all the channels on a multiplex eg. ABC1 ABC2 ABC HD, will have the same
UHF channel, but individual LCNs.
PCM: Pulse-code modulation is a digital representation of an analogue signal where
the magnitude of the signal is sampled regularly at uniform intervals. PCM is also a
standard in digital video.
S/PDIF: Sony/Philips Digital Interface. A digital connection which allows you to feed
the sound in digital format, from one piece of equipment to another. If you have a
good quality AV receiver, you may find the output from the PVR is better when you
use its digital audio facilities, instead of a phono connection for the audio. Digital
audio connections can also carry multi-channel surround sound (AC3), where available
from the transmitter.

8. LETTERBOX
All older television screens had a width-to-height ratio, or aspect ratio, of 4:3. TV
programs were shot and broadcast in the 4:3 aspect ratio. In HDTV and most TV
shows are now displayed in a 16:9, or wide-screen, aspect ratio. Most new televisions
also employ the wide-screen form factor. Old TV shows look fine on a 4:3 screen, and
high-definition and DVD movies perfectly match a 16:9 screen.
The image may appear distorted or sandwiched between black bars, called
letterboxes. To watch your favourite TV shows without these annoying black bars, first
choose which type of TV you use: a standard 4:3 or a 16:9 wide screen.
Most TV shows are formatted for the wider screen of an HDTV. So, 4:3 TVs have two
common problems when displaying this sort of content.
The first is vertical distortion, which makes everything onscreen appear tall and thin.
To fix this problem, access the setup menu of the PVR, and make sure the "TV type"
option is set to 4:3. Now the image on the screen will be properly proportioned. But
the image is now letterboxed, with black lines at the top and bottom of the screen.
Some people find letterbox bars annoying. To remove them, use the Aspect function
on your TV,. Note that on your remote, this function may have a different name, such
as Zoom, Wide, or Picture Size. Select a zoom level that enlarges the image to the
point where the black bars disappear. Note that the image may appear slightly blurry
or soft and that you'll be cropping out any action on the far left or right of the screen.
When showing content intended for 4:3 screens, wide-screen TVs may display black
bars on the sides of the image. There are three ways to eliminate these bars.
1. The first way is to zoom the picture. Press the Aspect Ratio button on your TV
or, PVR. Note that on your remote, this feature may have a different name,
such as Zoom, Wide, or Picture Size. Zooming the picture causes the TV, the
DVD player, or the set-top box to blow up the image, eliminating the black bars.
Note that the image may appear slightly blurry or soft and that you'll be
cropping out any action on the top and bottom of the screen.
2. Alternately, you can set the aspect-ratio of the TV to Stretch or Full. The black
bars will disappear, but to fit the almost-square 4:3 image onto the wider
screen, the TV has to stretch the picture horizontally, making everything appear
squat and bloated.

TEL: 1300 766 659
40
6. HINT PAGES
3. The third option is to set the aspect-ratio of the TV to Panorama or TheatreWide. The black bars will be gone, and the image will stretch to fill the screen.
It will look distorted at the extreme left and right but properly proportioned
near the centre. Movies letterboxed for 4:3 TVs will show black bars on all sides
when displayed on wide-screen TVs. This is another case where the Zoom
function should be applied.
Finally, even wide-screen TVs will show letterbox bars when displaying movies filmed
in ultra-wide-screen formats such as Cinemascope. The Zoom control of the TV
remote will eliminate the bars, but it will result in a softer, blurrier image and crop out
any action on the extreme left and right of the screen.
9. PAN AND SCAN:
This is another method of adjusting widescreen film images so that they can be shown
within the proportions of a standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio television screen,
often cropping off the sides of the original widescreen image to focus on the
composition's most important aspects. Pan and scan cropping can remove up to 45%
(on 2.35:1 films) of the original image,
