SAFETY INFORMATION (cont.)
Safety aspects of connections
Full details of the rear panel are on page 8.
Connecting
Do not connect your set-top (or any other equipment such as a TV
or VCR) to the power supply until you have properly connected all
the other cables.
The POWER OUTLET plug is designed only for connection to the AC
power cord for a TV. The maximum power it can supply is 500 watts.
Do not connect any equipment that uses more than 500 watts, or
any non-TV equipment such as a toaster or hair dryer.
Your set-top operates with a 120 V AC, 60 Hz power supply.
Do not connect your set-top to any supply other than this.
This set-top is equipped with a two-wire power cord, with a
polarized plug at one end. The other end of the cord is fitted with a
polarized connector, which is shaped such that it can be fitted only
one way into the power input jack of your set-top. Connect this
end first, before inserting the polarized plug into the wall socketoutlet.
Disconnecting
Disconnect your set-top from the power supply before you
disconnect any other equipment from its rear panel.
The only way to disconnect your set-top from the power supply
is to remove the power cord from the wall socket-outlet. Your
set-top must therefore be installed near to the wall socket-outlet,
which should be easily accessible.
6
The CABLE IN connector is designed for
connection to a cable network only.
You must not connect any other equipment,
such as a VCR, to this input.
POWER INPUT
The model number, serial
number and electrical
rating of this set-top are

SAFETY INFORMATION (cont.)
Epilepsy and on-screen images
Regulatory information
Certain people are susceptible to epileptic seizures or losing
consciousness when faced with certain types of flashing lights in
our daily environment.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to modify your set-top without
written authorization from the manufacturer. Unauthorized
modification could void your authority to operate your set-top.
These people are exposed to the risk of seizures if they watch
certain television images or if they view certain images while they
are browsing the Web. These phenomena may appear even when
the subject has no previous history of this problem or has never
suffered an epileptic seizure.
If you, or a member of your family, has already suffered symptoms
linked to epilepsy (seizure or loss of consciousness) in the presence
of stimulation by light, please consult your doctor before using this
product.
If you or any person using the equipment experiences dizziness,
involuntary movements or convulsion, please immediately stop

• Use the equipment in a well-lit room, and turn down the
brightness of your television screen.
• Sit at a reasonable distance from your television screen.
• Take a break for ten minutes every hour.
You should avoid using the Web if you are tired or have lost some sleep.
NOTE
Your set-top has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. Your set-top generates, uses
and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If your set-top does cause harmful interference
to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
your set-top off and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between your set-top and the receiver.
• Connect your set-top to an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult your dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

CONNECTING THE EQUIPMENT
In order for you to view programs broadcast in high-definition, your set-top must be
connected to a suitable HDTV or computer monitor. Your set-top is also compatible
with standard-definition TVs and VCRs.
Your equipment should have been connected up by your installer. However, if you
need to disconnect and re-connect your equipment, please read pages 10 to 14.
On pages 12 and 13 there are two typical connection set-ups for an HDTV, VCR,
DVD player and home theater receiver.
These set-ups make efficient use of the connectors on your set-top. However,
depending on your other equipment and the connectors on it, the person who
installed your system may have chosen to connect things up differently.
Both set-ups allow stereo recording and play-back of video tapes. You hear stereo
sound from the home theater’s loudspeakers.
Although the RF cables (shown by dashed lines in the diagrams) are not absolutely
necessary, we recommend that you connect them as a back-up and so that you can
use the RF Bypass. If you use the RF cables, you must tune your TV (and VCR) to
your set-top’s VHF output channel (3 or 4: consult your cable service-provider to find
which channel it is for your location). Consult the manuals supplied with your TV and
VCR for information on how to tune.
You can take advantage of the digital audio output from your set-top by connecting
a suitable cable between your home theater receiver and the (OPTICAL) DIGITAL
AUDIO OUT jack (as shown in the diagrams) or the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack.
10
WARNINGS
Do not connect your set-top (or any other
equipment such as a TV or VCR) to the AC power
supply until you have properly connected all the
other cables.
Disconnect your set-top from the AC power
supply before you disconnect any other
equipment from its rear panel.
The only way to disconnect your set-top from
the AC power supply is to remove the AC power
cord (or switch the wall socket-outlet switch, if
present, to its OFF position).Your set-top must
therefore be installed near to the AC power
socket-outlet, which should be easily accessible.
The power outlet is designed only for connection
to the AC power cord for a TV. The maximum
power it can supply is 500 watts. Do not connect
any equipment that uses more than 500 watts, or
any non-TV equipment such as a toaster or hair
dryer.
The cable input is designed for connection to a
cable network only.You must not connect any
other equipment, such as a VCR, to this input.
Any cable connected to DIGITAL AUDIO OUT
must be 75 ohm coaxial, not regular audio cable.
CONNECTING THE EQUIPMENT (cont.)
Set-up A - Home theater system with HDTV
(HDMITM connection)
Set-up A (see page 12) uses an HDMITM (high definition multimedia interface) connector to connect
to the HDTV. This displays the highest quality picture on the HDTV and also means there will be no
picture degradation on any copy-protected programs (provided the link remains secure – see right)
Variation
S-video provides a better TV picture than composite video, therefore, if your TV and VCR have
S-video connectors, replace the composite video connection with an S-video connection to your
VCR, then connect directly via an S-video connection from your VCR to your TV (or loop through
your home theater receiver if you prefer).
Set-up B - Home theater system with HDTV
(Component video / YPbPr connection)
Set-up B (see page 13) uses a component video connection to connect to the HDTV. This displays a
high definition picture on your TV.
NOTE
Copy protection via an
HDMITM secure link
The HDMITM link between your
set-top and your HDTV should
be a secure link. When your
set-top is attached via an HDMITM
cable to an HDCP-compliant
(High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection) HDTV, the HDTV
and set-top negotiate a secure
link, which allows your set-top
to transmit full resolution video
(picture) to your HDTV.
Not all HDTVs support HDCP. If
your set-top is connected to an
HDTV that does not support it,
the following may be displayed:
Your HDTV does not support HDCP.
Please use the YPbPr component
connection to watch TV.
NOTES
How you set up your equipment may depend on your home theater receiver. For example, the optical
and digital audio inputs may be associated with particular video inputs. Please see your home theater user
information for further details.
The HDMITM output is then
disabled, so no picture is transmitted
from this connector. In that case use
the component video connectors to
connect up (see Set-up B).

CONNECTING THE EQUIPMENT (cont.)
WARNINGS
Do not connect your set-top (or any other equipment such as a TV or VCR) to the AC power supply until
you have properly connected all the other cables.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plugs on power cords. A polarized plug has two blades
with one wider than the other. This plug fits into the outlet in only one way; match the wide blade of the
plug to the wide slot of the outlet.
Connecting your TV to the AC power supply
If your TV has a rating of less than 500 W, connect the power cord from your TV into the connector
labeled “POWER OUTLET” on the rear panel of your set-top. This saves a wall outlet (although, if
your TV is rated 500 W or more, you must connect it to a wall outlet).
Connecting the power cord to your set-top
Before you connect your set-top to a wall outlet, connect the polarized socket on the power cord
into the plug labeled “POWER INPUT” on your set-top’s rear panel.
Connecting equipment to the wall AC outlets
Connect the polarized plugs on the power cords from your set-top, VCR and any other equipment
into wall AC outlets. If these outlets have switches, switch them to ON.

OPERATING YOUR SET-TOP (cont.)
Using your set-top’s DVR functions
Your set-top has an internal hard disk that you can use to record and play back television programs,
giving you much more control of your viewing experience. For example, you can pause live television
and resume viewing from the point at which you left off. You can record many more hours than you
can by using a VCR or DVD recorder. There are red lights on your set-top’s front panel to show
when recording is taking place. With your set-top you can:
• pause live TV;
• instantly replay live TV;
• fast-forward up to the point of live TV;
• watch a scene in slow motion;
• rewind through a program you have been watching;
• record high definition digital pictures (as well as the regular standard definition);
• record one program while watching another;
• record two programs while watching a previously recorded program;
• schedule your set-top to record a program or a whole series;
• fully manage your stored recordings;
• back up your digital recordings to a VCR or DVD recorder;
• retain full control over any parental viewing restrictions you have set up.
18
You control your set-top’s DVR functions using your remote control; consult the information supplied
by your cable service-provider for more details. Also read the operating instructions that are supplied
with your remote control.
NOTES
The exact functionality of the
DVR (digital video recorder)
in your set-top depends on
your on-screen program guide.
For more details, consult the
information supplied by your
cable service-provider.
Do not confuse recording to the
hard disk with recording to a

Refer to the set-top’s ventilation
requirements on page 4.
OPERATING YOUR SET-TOP (cont.)
Using an external hard disk
Your cable service-provider may enable a feature that allows an external hard disk to work with your
set-top. If this is the case, most major brands of serial ATA hard disk, connected to the SATA port, are
supported. You should not connect an external hard disk to the USB port.
If you do use an external hard disk, it gives extra recording capacity, but you cannot choose which
disk (internal or external) your set-top will record to. It will automatically choose the one with more
empty space. The recordings on the external hard disk are uniquely linked to the set-top on which
they were made, so you cannot play them back or delete them with a different set-top.
Connecting an external hard disk
1. First stop any recording you are making to your set-top’s internal hard disk.
2. Turn off your set-top with the POWER button and then wait 60 seconds before disconnecting
it from the wall AC socket. (You must not “hot plug” an external hard disk).
3. Connect the external hard disk, using an appropriate cable, to the SATA connector on your settop.
Do you want to format the
external hard drive?
YES
NO
4. Apply power to the external hard disk.
5. Reconnect your set-top to the wall AC socket and turn it on with the POWER button.
If the external disk needs formatting, your set-top will inform you by means of a pop-up dialog box on
your TV screen (see right).
6. Use the arrow and SELECT buttons to select YES, and the formatting will begin.

OPERATING YOUR SET-TOP (cont.)
Using RF Bypass
You can use RF Bypass to watch the regular (analog) channels that are included in the cable service.
It makes these channels “bypass” your set-top and pass directly to your TV and/or VCR.
To use RF Bypass:
• Your set-top must be installed with the correct connections from the rear panel to your TV or
VCR (see the note, right); and
• The RF Bypass feature must be on (you may need to set it to “On” in the Setup menu; see page 35).
A BYPASS light on your set-top’s front panel lights up green if RF Bypass is on. Your remote control
may have a button that allows you to turn Bypass on and off.
For you to start using RF Bypass, your set-top must be turned on. However, if the RF Bypass feature
has been set to “On”, RF Bypass will work even if you turn your set-top off.
When RF Bypass is on: you can use your TV’s remote control to tune to any of the available regular
(analog) channels and watch that channel on your TV (the path is the RF cable). You can, at the same
time, use your set-top’s composite video and L & R audio outputs to record on your VCR the digital
channel that your set-top is tuned to. (This channel number is shown on your set-top’s front panel.*)
This means that, when the Bypass is on, you can watch a regular (analog) channel on your TV and, at
the same time, record a digital channel on your VCR. (If you are recording to the hard disk, you can
record two different programs to it, while watching an analog channel on the bypass.)
When RF Bypass is off: you see on your TV the channel that your set-top is tuned to. This is the same
channel that your VCR receives. So, when RF Bypass is off, you can record on your VCR only the
program that you are watching on your TV (but you can still record a different one to the hard disk).
20
NOTE
If you are not sure whether your
set-top has been set up to allow
RF Bypass, check your installation.
If there is a cable (RF cable)
going from the TO TV connector
on your set-top’s rear panel to
your TV (or to your VCR and
TV, as shown by the dashed line
on pages 12 and 13) then RF
Bypass is correctly set up. Your
TV and VCR also need to have
been tuned to your set-top’s VHF
output channel (3 or 4, depending
on your location).
NOTE
* If the “Front LED Display” (see
page 35) is set to “Current Time”,
you will not see the channel
number. To see the number of
the channel your set-top is tuned
to, you should set “Front LED
Display” to “Current Channel”.

MAKING USER SETTINGS (cont.)
About TV Display Capability (resolution settings)
• Your set-top can transmit pictures to your TV in a range of resolutions (also called “Display
Capabilities” - see below for the settings available). Generally, higher screen resolutions give better
quality pictures. However, the quality will always depend on how the program was originally
transmitted.
• Different TVs display different screen resolutions. For example, standard TVs display “480i”, EDTVs
(Enhanced Definition TVs) display “480p” and most HDTVs display “1080i” or “720p”. Many
HDTVs will display at more than one resolution. For more information, see the information
supplied with your HDTV.
You must make the appropriate TV Display Capability setting(s) on your set-top, so that it is
compatible with your TV. See the next page for full instructions.
In order to display the best picture every time, you should select every resolution that your TV is
capable of displaying. This should ensure that programs are displayed with the minimum distortion.
There are green lights on your set-top’s front panel to show you the resolution of the picture for the
program your set-top is currently handling (a live program or one you are playing back).
TV Display Capability settings
• 480i is standard definition NTSC and is
transmitted in a 4:3 aspect ratio (see right)
• 480p is enhanced digital TV and can be
transmitted in either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio
• 720p and 1080i are HDTV and are
transmitted in a 16:9 aspect ratio (see right)
480i transmission:
The aspect ratio is 4:3
1080i transmission:
The aspect ratio is 16:9
NOTE
When your HDTV is connected
to your set-top via an HDMITM,
your set-top gets information
from your HDTV about the
HDTV’s display capability.Your settop uses this information to adjust
its TV Display Capability settings.
Your set-top also records your
HDTV’s ID (identification), so that
only one HDTV is supported at any
one time.When your HDTV has
updated your set-top’s TV Display
Capability settings, you may change
them if you wish.Your changes will
then be stored with the ID.
You can restore your set-top’s
TV Display Capability settings to
their factory values, as described
on page 32.You can also restore
your set-top to the settings that
your HDTV has passed to your
set-top. To do this you must first
restore the factory settings while
your set-top is disconnected from
your HDTV, then reconnect your
HDTV via an HDMITM cable.

MAKING USER SETTINGS (cont.)
Changing the TV Display Capability
If you have not done so already, put your set-top into “user settings mode”, as described on page 21.
Press the U or D button until the front panel shows “reS” (short for “resolution”).
The flow diagram on page 25 shows how you use the arrow and SELECT buttons on your set-top’s
front panel to change the display and make the settings. See also the instructions below. The available
resolutions are: 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. (See pages 23 and 25 for more information about these.)
1. To change the TV Display Capability, press the R button when you see “reS” on the front
panel, as shown right.
The front panel shows the TV display capability that was last selected, so it could show 480i, 480P,
720P or 1080i (this final setting is displayed as 1080). You will probably also see the TV Display
Capability menu, shown right, on your TV screen. If you cannot see this menu, you should be able
to do so by the time you have finished making these Display Capability settings.
2. If you can see the menu, proceed as follows:
Press the U or D button to highlight each resolution in turn and, for each one, press the
SELECT button if you wish to change the setting (the setting changes between “YES” and
“NO” each time you press SELECT). If, at any stage in this process, the menu disappears from the
screen, immediately press SELECT to restore the menu.
24
3 If you press the R button when you see “reS” on the front panel, but the menu does not appear
on your TV screen, proceed as follows:
Press U or D until “1080” is displayed on the front panel, then press SELECT.
If the menu then appears, check and change the settings as described in Step 2 above.
If the menu does not appear at this stage, press SELECT again, then press U or D until “720P” is
displayed on the front panel, and then press SELECT. If the menu then appears, check and change
the settings as described in Step 2 above. Repeat this process until you have tried all the resolutions.

Further information about the TV Display Capability
The TV Display Capability settings relate to equipment that is connected to the HDMITM and
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT connectors because the settings control the output at those
connectors. If equipment is connected via an HDMITM cable, that equipment may also pass
information back to your set-top, which may affect what settings are available.
Generally, the TV Display Capability settings do not affect equipment connected to the VIDEO OUT
and S-VIDEO jacks, because the output at these jacks will always be the standard definition 480i.

USING ZOOM
Using “Zoom” to change the picture
Making the appropriate TV Aspect Ratio and TV Display Capability settings (see pages 21 through
27) should ensure that the picture on your TV screen is not distorted (stretched or squashed) and
that it fills as much of the screen as possible.
However, even if you have selected the correct settings, there will be times when a program appears
with black borders either at the top and bottom or at the sides of the picture (or sometimes even all
the way round the picture). This happens because the aspect ratio (shape) of the transmitted program
does not match the aspect ratio of your HDTV, or because the transmitted programme includes
black borders as part of the transmission (see right).
Your remote control should have a “zoom function” button (could be labeled Zoom or Aspect),
which you can use to change the TV picture until it appears as you want it to.

may turn off automatically, if the “AC Outlet”
is set to “Switched” (see page 35).You may
wish to keep this feature, or you may wish to
set “AC Outlet” to “Unswitched”.
Please see the next page
Check that you have selected the appropriate AV input on
your TV: HDMITM, component video (YPbPr), composite
video or S-video (depending on how your system is
connected up).
If you are using a component video (YPbPr) connection,
make sure the set-top’s TV Display Capability settings are
appropriate for your TV (see page 24).
If the video path between your set-top and your TV loops
through other equipment (such as a VCR), you may need
to turn off this equipment for the loopthrough to work.
If you are using the HDMITM connection, make sure the
connection goes directly from your set-top to your TV. If
your set-top detects that the link is not secure, your settop will not transmit a picture (see page 11). If you expect
the link to be secure, try disconnecting and reconnecting
the HDMITM cable.

SOLVING PROBLEMS (cont.)

Suggested solution
Further checks, if there is still a problem
Is the picture distorted
or too small?
Check that the TV Aspect Ratio and TV
Display Capability, as set on your set-top,
are appropriate for your TV (see pages 21
through 25). Change them if necessary.
If your TV is a 16:9 TV, you can use Auto Pillarbox to add
black borders to 4:3 transmissions, so that the picture is
not stretched (see page 26).
If your TV is connected to the VIDEO OUT
or S-VIDEO jacks, then you will see menus
and guides only if the screen resolution 480i
is set to “Yes” and 480p, 720p and 1080i
are set to “No”.
Use the front panel to check the user settings (see page
21) and change the TV Display Capability resolution
settings if necessary (see page 23).
Check that the audio cables are securely and
correctly connected.
Check that you have not muted the sound on your settop and/or TV. Adjust the volume control on your set-top
and/or TV. If you are using a home theater receiver, check
it is set up correctly.
First check that the program is likely to have
stereo sound (an old movie, for example, may
not be in stereo).
If your TV is mono, you will hear stereo sound only if
you have a stereo audio amplifier and speakers or home
theater connected to your stereo VCR or set-top.

If the TV Aspect Ratio and TV Display Capability settings
are correct, try using Zoom to improve the picture (see
page 34) or consult the instructions that came with your
TV and try adjusting your TV’s display.

Some programmes may include “copy
protection” which means, if your set-top is
connected to your HDTV via the component
video jacks, the picture is downgraded to
standard TV quality. To prevent this from
happening, use an HDMITM (high definition
multimedia interface) connection instead.
The Bypass feature may be turned on (check
if the BYPASS light on your set-top’s front
panel is lighted). If Bypass is on, turn it off
(using the Setup menu, if there is one, or the
appropriate button on your remote control).
The internal hard disk may be temporarily
disabled because the set-top has overheated.
Make sure the set-top is not overheating
(refer to the set-top’s ventilation
requirements on page 4).
