to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
In accordance with FCC requirements, changes or modifications not
expressly approved by Thomson multimedia Inc. could void the user’s

This device generates and uses radio frequency (RF) energy, and if not
installed and used properly, this equipment may cause interference to radio
and television reception.
This equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception
(which you can determine by turning the equipment off and on), try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for the radio or
television that is receiving the interference).
• Change the position of the unit with respect to the radio or television
equipment that is receiving interference.
• Move the unit away from the equipment that is receiving interference.
• Plug the unit into a different wall outlet so that the unit and the
equipment receiving interference are on different branch circuits.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your
dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications Commission has prepared
