Using serial interface
The serial data interface “DATA” offers you the possibility to connect the receiver to a PC.
Therefore you need a PC and serial cable (On the PC-side a female SUB-D connector
with 9 or 25 pins and on Receiver-side a RJ11 plug with 6 pins).
Via this connection you can perform software updates and channel lists up- and downloads.
The required information and software tools are available at the manufacturer’s homepage.
Make a contribution to environmental protection
Do not throw batteries into domestic waste. As a consumer you are obliged to return used
batteries. You can bring them to a public collection station in your commune or elsewhere
where batteries of the same type are sold.
The following signs can be found on batteries including harmful substances:
Pb = battery includes lead
Cd = battery includes cadmium
Hg = battery includes mercury
Hints for disposal
If your device is once disused you should not just throw it into domestic waste.
Surely there is a collecting point for old devices where it can be collected and
recycled.
