TV Program Guide
Media Center includes an onscreen TV guide that allows you to scroll through a list of the TV programs and channels available from your TV provider. The very first time you start Media Center, the
setup wizard will ask, “Do you want to use the Guide?,” to which you should answer Yes. The TV guide
shows the channel, program title, and scheduled time for current programs and upcoming programs.
The number of days shown in the guide depends on your TV service provider. When you select a
program, further information is displayed at the bottom of the screen. You can also use the TV guide
to schedule recordings.
Using the TV Program Guide
• If the TV guide is not updated, the number of days displayed decreases each day.
• You can set Media Center to automatically connect to the Internet and update the TV guide. Note
that not all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) support this feature. Check with your ISP.
• If your ISP does not support automatic TV guide updates, you must update the guide manually on
the Settings screen. You can manually update the TV guide at any time even if you have set it to
update automatically.
• If the TV guide is not updated, the message “No data available” appears next to each channel.
• The number of channels and days that appear in the TV guide depends on your TV service provider.
• The TV guide does not show past TV programs.
• If you attempt to schedule a recording that overlaps with an already scheduled recording, a message
appears explaining the conflict.

Recording TV Programs
With Media Center, you can record your favorite TV programs so that you can watch them when you
like. You can record the program that you are watching, an upcoming program, or an entire program
series by using the TV guide, Search function, or manually. If you schedule several programs or an
entire program series for recording, you can prioritize programs that you definitely want to record. See
“Changing the TV Recording Settings” on page 25 for more information.
Recording a TV Program Using the TV Guide
Notes:
• Before scheduling a recording, you may need to update the TV guide manually.
• To record a TV program, the NVS-7.7 must be turned on or in Standby mode.
• Since the same tuner is used for both TV and FM, you cannot listen to FM radio while recording
a TV program.
• While a scheduled recording is in progress, you can only watch the program that’s being
recorded. If you select another channel while recording, recording will stop.
• To use the TV guide, you must answer Yes when the setup wizard asks, “Do you want to use the
Guide?”

About Security
What’s a Computer Virus?
A computer virus is a self-replicating, malicious program that spreads by inserting itself into other files
and infects a computer without the user’s knowledge. Infected files are easily spread across the Internet
as downloadable files or e-mail attachments. Once on your computer, a virus may delete important
files, make your computer unstable, or automatically send copies of itself to all of your e-mail contacts.
Other types of virus include worms, trojan horses, and spyware. It’s very important that you take steps
to protect your computer against these viruses.
How To Protect Your Computer
■ Patching Security Holes
One of the most important protective measures you can take is to patch any security holes by updating
your Windows® operating system and other programs. These days, the number of computer viruses
that take advantage of security holes is increasing. Even if you are using antivirus software, your
computer is still vulnerable to viruses if you have not patched these security holes. Software manufacturers regularly discover new security holes and release patches and updates to fix them.
Check the Web regularly for Windows® updates and news from security software manufacturers and
update your computer as necessary.
■ Symantec Norton Internet Security
The NVS-7.7 comes with Symantec Norton Internet Security antivirus software (bundle version) preinstalled. Because new viruses are discovered all the time, it needs to be updated regularly, which can
be done automatically by using the LiveUpdate function. The preinstalled software comes with a free
90-day subscription to LiveUpdate. After 90 days, you’ll need to renew your subscription, which you
can do online at the Symantec Web site (http://www.symantec.com/).
■ Always Check Mail Attachments and Downloaded Files for Viruses
Never open an e-mail attachment you weren’t expecting, especially one from someone you don’t know,
as it may contain a virus. Always check attachments and downloaded files for viruses before you open
them.
