Changes in Version 6
TerraTec Home Cinema
Version 6 is a major release. We worked to improve stability, usability and visibility. Thus
there are only few new features but many minor improvements to make watching TV more
comfortable than ever.
Major changes





It is possible to upgrade from ‘Classic’ and ‘Basic’ version to ‘Premium’ version by
entering a serial number during setup.

information on the current time and file position.

2
Changed channel switching with up/down arrows. Now you can preview the current/next
information of the channels in your favourite list. Select the channel for viewing by hitting
‘Return’.
Duration of manual recordings can be changed through the OSD now. Simply press the
record key on the remote control or ‘R’ on the keyboard again to show the end time
selection OSD.
New OSD dialog to show an overview of timer conflicts.
Important notes
Update from previous versions
Version 6 has many changes so it is recommended to uninstall all previous versions below 6
before installing a version 6 or above. The user settings are not affected. They can be kept.
To enter a serial number it’s required to run the setup again.
New hardware notification
TerraTec Home Cinema checks for new hardware and possibly advises you to run the setup
again. It’s highly recommended to do so. Otherwise some parts of the new hardware will not
work as expected.

Known issues

1
Split MPEG recordings are not concatenated automatically during playback
... for digital TV. Old behaviour can be forced via the options on the Audio/Video. For analogue TV permanent timeshift is
deactivated by default.
