• When using composite or S-Video cables, make sure the composite/
480i/480p switch is set to Composite.
• When using Component cables, make sure the switch is set to 480i
(interlaced) or 480p (progressive scan), depending on your TV. If your
TV supports both 480i and 480p, select 480p. To determine if your

The IR Control Cable and the Serial Data Control Cable
If you have digital cable TV service or satellite TV service, you must
use the IR control cable or the serial data control cable to connect the
Recorder to the digital cable set-top box or the satellite receiver settop box. When you change the channels by using the remote or when
the Recorder must change the channel to record a show you have
scheduled, the IR control cable or the serial data control cable sends a
code to the set-top box to change the channel.
02
The IR control cable works with any set-top box that has a remote
control. Plug the mini-jack on the cable into the Recorder, and then
place the other end of the cable in front of the remote control receiver
(or sensor) on the front of the set-top box.
The serial data control cable can only be connected to a satellite set-top
box with a 9‑pin serial input port. The mini-plug on the cable connects
to the Recorder.
9-pin serial port
Notes
• The serial data control cable provides the best connection between the
•
•
•
•
Recorder and a satellite set-top box. However, only a few satellite set-top
boxes have a serial input port. If your satellite set-top box does not have this
serial input port, you must use the IR control cable.
During the on-screen setup process, the Recorder will ask you to select the
brand and a manufacturer code for the digital cable or satellite set-top
box to which your recorder is connected. Selecting the right brand and
manufacturer code will allow the recorder to change channels on the cable
or satellite set-top box using the IR control cable or serial control cable.
Some satellite set-top boxes—including some DirecTV set-top boxes with
Home Control or non-standard serial connections—require an additional
cable to connect the Recorder to the satellite set-top box. To determine if
your satellite set-top box requires this cable or to purchase the cable, contact
your satellite set-top box retailer or the satellite service provider.
Do not connect both the IR control cable and the serial data control cable to
the satellite set-top box at the same time.
Before you connect the serial data control cable, make sure the power cord
for the Recorder and the power cord for the satellite set-top box are not
plugged into a power outlet or power strip.

2. On the IR control cable, attach the adhesive tape (included) to the
flat surface just below of the blaster on the IR control cable.
3. On the digital cable set-top box or satellite set-top box, locate the
remote control receiver/sensor.
The remote control receiver/sensor is usually behind a small window
on the front panel of the set-top box. If you cannot locate the
receiver, shine a flashlight along the front of the set-top box. Refer
to the set-top box documentation or contact your cable service or
satellite service provider for more information.
4. Place the IR control cable blaster in front of the remote control
sensor and press the top of the blaster (with the adhesive tape) to

of TV service set-top box. If you do not know the brand, see your TV
service documentation or contact your TV service provider.
Choose Number of Digits and How You Change Channels
If you have digital cable service or satellite service, select the highest
number of channels you receive through your cable set-top box or
satellite set-top box: two digits, three digits, or four digits.
Note The Recorder adds leading zeros to channel numbers that have
fewer digits than you selected above. For example, if you select “4digits” the Recorder sends “0044” to the digital cable set-top box or the
satellite set-top box to change to channel 44. If the channel does not
change correctly, the set-top box may not recognize the leading zeros.
To correct this, select Yes, I have to press ENTER or OK on the How do
you change channels? page. You can change this setting by selecting
Start > Settings > Guide Setup > Set up TV Signal and Guide.
When you have to enter a channel manually, how do you enter it?
Do you:
• Enter the channel number using a remote control, and then the
channel changes?
• Enter the channel number using a remote control, and then
press OK or ENTER to change the channel?
If you press OK or ENTER, the Recorder enter the OK or ENTER for you.
When you enter a channel number by using the Recorder remote, the
Recorder will also “press” OK for you; you won’t have to press it.
After you select the actions that change the channels, set up the
Recorder to change the channels by using the IR control cable or the
serial data control cable.
Note Although many cable set-top boxes and satellite set-top boxes
do not require you to press OK or ENTER to change a channel by using
the set-top box remote control, some of these set-top boxes cannot be
controlled by the Recorder remote control without OK or ENTER being
pressed. You may need to select the OK or ENTER option if you find the
Recorder remote does not change the set-top box channels properly.
36
6. Set up the Recorder to Change Channels on the
Set‑top Box
If you have digital cable or satellite TV service, you must connect the
cable set-top box or the satellite set-top box to the Recorder so the
Recorder can change the channels on the set-top box.
Important For the Recorder to record programs received through a
cable set-top box or a satellite set-top box, the cable set-top box or the
satellite set-top box must remain turned on at all times.
The IR Control Cable and the Serial Data Control Cable
The Recorder includes two cables used to change channels on a settop box. Some satellite set-top boxes have a 9-pin serial input port
that is connected to the Recorder by using the serial data control cable.
Digital set-top boxes and most satellite set-top boxes are connected to
the Recorder with an IR control cable. These cables allow the Recorder
to send the same codes that the set-top box remote controls send to
change channels on the set-top boxes.
Note Many cable set-top boxes and satellite set-top boxes do not
require you to press OK or ENTER to change a channel by using the settop box remote control. However, some of these set-top boxes cannot
be controlled by the Recorder remote without using OK or ENTER. To
change to using OK or ENTER when changing channels, display the
Start menu and select Settings > Guide Listings > Set up TV Signal
and Guide.
Prepare for Set-top Box Setup
If you have satellite TV service, select Use a serial cable or Use an
IR cable.
Note Some satellite set-top boxes have a 9-pin serial port that does
not support input information. In this case, make sure you connect the
IR control cable instead of the serial cable. For more information, see
your satellite service hardware documentation.
Video Test
On the Video Test page, make sure a TV show is playing on the page.
If a show is playing, select Next. If a show is not playing, verify your
connections between the TV service set-top box and the Recorder.
For more information, see Connect the Recorder to the TV, Audio
Components, and Internet.
Select Remote Control Code
You must determine which set of codes the Recorder will use to change
the channels on the set-top box. The list of codes displayed onscreen are
based on the brand of set-top box you selected. Each brand of set-top
box can have multiple sets of codes. One code will be tested at a time;
if the code does not work, select another code to test.
37
Test Changing Channels
This test checks to see if the code you selected will change channels.
Use the numeric keypad on the Recorder remote to change to the
lowest channel you receive through your set-top box—such as
channel 2.
Note In this test the channel does not need to change to the lowest
channel; the TV image just needs to change to another channel.
• If the channel changed to a different show, select The channel
changed.
• If the channel did not change to another show, select Try another
code. Select another remote control code and run this test again.
Speed Test
At this point the code is tested for changing to the correct channel.
In addition, some remote controls send codes more quickly than other
remote controls. The speed test also tests the speed the Recorder
should send the code to the set-top box.
There are three possible speeds: Fast, Medium, and Slow. The first
speed tested is Fast.
To test the speed
1. Tune to the highest channel you receive through the set-top box
by using the numeric keypad on the Recorder remote—the highest
channel in your channel list, such as channel 599 or channel 9406.
2. Change the channel at least six more times by using the numeric
keypad on the remote.
• If the channel changed correctly each time, select The channel
changed.
• If the channel did not change correctly each time, select Try
another speed.
If the fast speed test fails, repeat the same procedure for the medium
speed test. It the medium test fails, try the slow speed test. If the slow
speed test fails, select Try another code and select a different remote
control code to test.
Recorder Remote Control Settings
After all of the remote control settings for the Recorder are set up, the
Recorder displays the final settings it will use to change the channels.
