General useage & tips
Useage of a surge protector power strip will ensure a longer life span of this type of equipment
as power surges, common in Spain can damage equipment.
Never pull out a memory stick or hard drive whilst recording in progress.
If receiver ever locks up, or any issues – do a manual reboot by switching off via switch at
back of machine & reboot a few minutes later. Allow machine to cool down if hot.
Recording via a memory stick – programs in HD – High Definition consume far more memory
when recording – If unsure if enough room on recordable device, record in SD - standard
definition. Please refer to manufacturers manual if you wish to check available space on
recordable device.
If you do find yourself doing a considerable amount of recording & wish to record a lot of HD
content, then it is recommended you use an external hard drive 3.5” (standard external PC
unit) as these offer far more storage than a memory stick.
Any files recorded can also be backed up to your computer, by copying across from memory
stick or hard drive - should you want to keep.
