1 Introduction: Demo Mode
The High-Definition Digital Video Recorder (HD DVR) models DHG-HDD250 and DHGHDD500 feature attractive high-definition video content that is pre-recorded and is
available to be played back as soon as the HD DVR is connected to a TV. You can enjoy
a short clip of high-definition video even if high-definition cable TV or antenna
broadcast signals are not immediately available.
The HD DVRs also have a “Demo Mode” feature that can be activated by following the
steps outlined in this document. Activating the Demo Feature will:
ƒ
Allow any program to be played back in a continuous loop
ƒ
Limit the number of ways in which a program can be easily deleted
This feature may be useful in retail or other environments where there is an interest in
continuously displaying a single recording.
With the “Demo Mode” feature activated, this
menu no longer automatically appears at the
end of a recorded program. However this
menu is still available by pressing the →
button on the remote control or front panel.
With the “Demo Mode” feature activated,
the “Delete” function in the above menu
does not delete the program. However,
programs may still be deleted from the TV
Guide® / Recordings List / Program
Options menu.
