Using Caller ID
USING CALLER ID
Caller ID displays on your TV the names of people and/or telephone numbers as they call
you if you subscribe to Caller ID from your local phone company. To use this feature, make
sure you have a phone line connected to the receiver and that the Caller ID feature is
enabled.
Caller ID Screens
When you receive a call, you will see a Caller ID popup screen.
You can select OK to eliminate the message. If you do nothing, it will disappear after 20
seconds.
If you are using a menu when a call comes in, you will see a different Caller ID popup
screen.

Changing Languages
Using Caller ID History
Use the following instructions to view and delete numbers from your Caller ID History.
CHANGING LANGUAGES
You may be able to change the language of some programs. An alternate language may
not be available for all programs. Some programs, such as movies, indicate at the
beginning whether an alternate language or descriptive video is available. An alternate
language applies only to the audio part of a program and does not change the language
used in the menus displayed by the receiver. Descriptive video—not included on all
channels and programs—is a feature for the visually impaired that describes what is
happening during a program.

Note: If a program contains descriptive video, select Alternate.

Using Closed Captioning
USING CLOSED CAPTIONING
The receiver supports a variety of closed captioning formats. If turned on in the receiver,
closed captioning is displayed by the receiver through the HDTV Digital Audio/Video and
YPbPr outputs for each format.
The TV SET OUT, RCA video, and S-VIDEO receiver outputs provide closed captioning
information in the audio/video signal. However a closed-captioning compatible TV is
required to decode and display the captioning information the screen. Standard definition
display of closed captioning is a function of the TV and not the receiver. Refer to your TV
manual for enabling and setting up these closed captioning options.
Note: While the Program Guide information might show "CC" for a program, closed
captioning information is provided by programmers and guide data providers to Dish
Network. Therefore, while best efforts are made to provide the most accurate information,
DISH Network is not ultimately responsible for the accuracy of Program Guide and Closed
Captioning information provided by others.
1 Press MENU, select Preferences (8), and then Closed Captions (6).
2 Select Turn Captions On. The option will change to read Turn Captions Off.
3 Select your options:

Using Dolby® Surround Sound
USING DOLBY® SURROUND SOUND
Dolby Digital gives you the capability to enjoy programs in surround sound. An external
decoder is required to enjoy this feature. Refer to your decoder user’s guide.
Note: Not all programs contain a Dolby Digital sound track.
The receiver uses an optical port for outputting digital audio. The optical output can
provide two audio data types: Dolby Digital and Linear PCM (only Dolby Digital can
provide full 5.1-channel sound).
1 Connect an external Dolby Digital decoder to the receiver's back panel Digital Audio
Output using an optical cable (available at consumer electronics stores).
2 Press MENU, select System Setup (6), and then Dolby Digital (6) to open the Dolby Digital
Setup screen.
3 Select one of the following optical output options:
•
Dolby Digital Only - Select this option if the stereo system or amplifier can decode
only Dolby Digital and will not process Linear PCM signals. See your amplifier's
owner's manual for more details on the amplifier (and see the following table).
•
PCM Only - Select this option only if the stereo system or amplifier cannot decode
Dolby Digital signals.
•
Dolby Digital/PCM - Select this option only if the stereo system or amplifier can
decode both Dolby Digital and Linear PCM signals.
The audio output is also dependent on what is present in the program you are watching.
The table below shows what type of output you will hear:

Digital output unless you have selected PCM Only.

you will hear nothing. This also applies to the analog audio outputs.
4 Select one of the following:
•
Line Mode. When you use this setting, in comparison to RF Mode, the dynamic range
is wider, which makes the music and loud noises louder, but voices quieter.
