Remote Control
At Eurobox, we wanted to keep everything
as simple as possible, especially with the
remote control – it is after all one of the
most important pieces of equipment when
it comes to watching your television in the
normal way.
Most of the functions are the same on
remote controls around the world, so you
will be familiar with their use, but there are
a few specific to us!
Section 1.
Here you can switch Eurobox on and off,
use the mute button and show the time on
screen.
The most important functions are the coloured function keys which are used throughout the
system. Refer to the screen when they are available and to see which function they provide
Section 2.
Here is where most of the daily system controls are
1. Press menu at any time (see diagram above) from any screen to return to the main
menu.
2. When viewing in full screen, press back to return to the previous channel.
3. Press exit (see diagram above) to return back one level at a time and to remove on
screen messages.
4. Press info when viewing in full screen to see what is showing now and next on that
channel
5. Press info when in the main programme guide will open a programme guide over
time. It’s the view you will recognise most.
6. The directions keys do exactly that, they allow you to navigate move by move in any
direction.
7. The OK button, used to confirm your choices throughout the system.
8. Volume controls and channel selectors – one by one and page by page.
9. The usual function keys for controlling recordings – just like a VHS!
Section 3.
Here is the number pad. You can use this to type in channel numbers for fast navigation
once you remember them - 101 for BBC1, 501 for Sky news etc.
On the bottom left of this section there is a sizing button which can be used to ensure you
are getting the best fit on your screen. This function is only active when viewing
programming in full screen.
Keep this guide handy, you’ll pick it up in no time – but it’s good to know where it is just in
case.
Remember you can do almost everything from the central area of the remote.

TV
There are lots of great features on Eurobox all designed to give you the best possible
internet television experience.
1. Programme Guides.
There are three different programme guides available, each one offering something
different, both in terms of view and function.
a. Channel Listing Guide. This guide allows you to select which channel you
would like to watch from a shortlist of forthcoming programmes whilst
watching live content in a preview screen.
i. Use the remote to navigate to the channel you want to look up and
the chosen programme will show in the preview screen.
ii. You can now move up and down the channel guide looking at the
listings and the content will show in the preview screen.
iii. To commence full screen viewing press OK.
iv. Catch up. The channel listing guide shows with a yellow clock symbol
which channels are available for catch up. E.g. BBC1 has catch up, Sky
news does not.
v. View. The preview screen can be switched on and off by pressing the
Red Function button (F1) VIEW at the bottom of the screen once. Use
the arrows to select either ‘list’ (no screen) or ‘list and info’ (with
screen) and press OK.
vi. Favourites. This guide also allows you to set favourites. Simply choose
the channel you want to set as a favourite using the arrows on the
remote control. When the correct channel is highlighted press the
Yellow Function button (F3) FAVOURITES on the remote control once.
Pressing again will remove the favourites setting on that channel.
Each channel chosen as a favourite is tagged with a star.
You can set as many favourites as you wish.
vii. If you want to group and show your favourites together press the
Green Function button (F2) SORT. Use the arrows on your remote to
select ‘only favourites’. Press OK.
viii. The Blue Function button (F4) has no function.
b. Programme Guide. The layout of this guide is similar to the normal satellite
guide available from Freesat or Sky for example. To access this guide simply
press the Info button on the remote control when you are in the
Channel Listing described above.
This guide allows you to look at a number of channels over time both in the
future and in the past.
The guide goes forward for 10 days and back for 7 days.
2. Catch Up TV.
A major benefit of Eurobox is the 7-day catch up. On channels offering this service,
i.e. those displaying the catch up clock or a yellow dot, the viewing of missed,
interrupted or additional programmes is all under your control.
To view Catch Up programmes, from the ‘Channel Listing Guide’ using the arrows on
the remote control, select the channel that the desired programme was originally
shown. Now, enter the ‘Long Range Guide’ by pressing the right arrow on the
remote control, and locate the programme you wish to watch in catch up.
Remember the Long Range Guide can be searched by date and time as previously
described. Once the desired programme has been highlighted, simply press OK to
commence viewing. Catch Up playback can be paused, forwarded, rewound or
stopped using the remote control in the normal manner.
3. Video Club
There are loads of things to watch on video club from new movies to series, sport
the list is endless. This is one of our most popular features of the Eurobox. From the
main menu select video club at the bottom and you will see various different
categories (these are called bouquets). Choose the bouquet you are interested in
then select the title you want to watch. Once you have started watching you can
stop, fast forward or rewind at any time.
