CAUTION concerning the Power Cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon a
dedicated circuit;
That is, a single outlet circuit which powers only that
appliance and has no additional outlets or branch circuits. Check the specification page of this owner's manual to be certain.
Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall outlets,
loose or damaged wall outlets, extension cords, frayed
power cords, or damaged or cracked wire insulation are
dangerous. Any of these conditions could result in electric shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your
appliance, and if its appearance indicates damage or
deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord replaced with an exact
replacement part by an authorized servicer.
Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical
abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in
a door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to
plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits
the appliance.
To disconnect power from the unit, unplug the unit from
the outlet. When installing the product, ensure that the
plug is easily accessible.

Network connection
This recorder can be connected to the local area network (LAN) via the LAN port or the wireless LAN adapter.
Be sure to set the network configuration before using this recorder.
You can use the wired and/or wireless network depending on your network environment.
Wired network connection
Using a wired network provides the best performance, because the attached devices connect directly to the network
and are not subject to radio frequency interference.
Please refer to the documentation for your network device for further instructions.
The following connection example explain how to connect to the internet using LAN cable.
If you want to access content from PCs or DLNA servers, this recorder must be connected to the same local area network with them via a router.

the home network router or cable modem. Then power
on and/or connect the power cable again.
In some instances, placing the access point or wireless
router at least 1.5 ft (0.45m) above the floor may
improve the reception.
Move closer to the access point if possible or re-orient
the recorder so there is nothing between it and the
access point.

About DLNA
The DLNA features allow you to browse and play movies, music and photos stored on DLNA media servers connected
on an identical Local Area Network (LAN) as the recorder.
This recorder allows playing files stored on a computer with Nero MediaHome 4 Essentials and a DLNA-compatible digital media server (PC and Consumer Electronics).
• Playing a movie subtitle files are only available on
media server created by supplied Nero MediaHome 4
Essentials software on this recorder’s package.
• The subtitle file name and movie file name have to be
the same and located at the same folder.
• If subtitle files have been added after a directory has
been indexed already, the user has to remove and readd the folder to the list of shares.
• The playback and operating quality of the [DLNA]
function may affected by your home network condition.
• The files from removable media such as USB drive,

• If there is an unplayable music file in the [DLNA]
menu, the recorder skip the file and play next file.
