Safety

Congratulations on purchasing this Digital Terrestrial Free to View Receiver.

Please note that the availability of digital signals depends on the transmitter(s) available in your reception area.

In order to enjoy this product for a long time it is important that you observe the following points when installing and operating the receiver: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • This receiver should be plugged into a 230V to 240V AC, 50/60Hz power supply only.

This receiver is intended for the reception of TV picture and sound signals. Avoid long-term display of static images e.g. menus or audio only channels. Use the Radio feature (blank screen – see Advanced Setup).

The receiver is intended for use in dry rooms. Do not expose the receiver to any moisture. If there is a need to use the receiver in open air, make sure that it is protected against moisture (rain, humidity, splashes etc.).

Do not place any object filled with water such as a vase on the receiver.

Place the receiver on a hard and flat surface and do not place any object over it.

If the receiver is placed in an enclosed unit, make sure that there is at least 10cm of space around the receiver and the sides of the unit.

Do not place the receiver close to a heat source or in direct sunlight as this will prevent the necessary cooling for the unit.

During a thunderstorm it is advised to disconnect the unit from the mains and from the aerial to prevent damage from lightning.

Never open the receiver as this will invalidate your guarantee.

Dispose of used batteries at appropriate collection points and not in the normal waste – this prevents hazardous chemicals from the batteries being released into the environment.

If the receiver is not to be used for a long period such as on holiday. Disconnect from the power and aerial system.

Do not connect or modify cables with the receiver plugged in.

No naked flame sources such as lighted candles should be placed on the apparatus.

The mains plug is used as the disconnect device and it shall remain readily operable. To completely disconnect the power input, the mains plug of the apparatus should be disconnected from the mains (when the mains plug is disconnected the power indicator light will not light up).

Note

Dust will collect on the receiver and can be removed by using a dry clean cloth. Do not spray any substances such as cleaning liquids on the unit.
