Connecting to a Stereo VCR or DVD Recorder
The diagram below shows how to connect a recording device to your set-top. Although it
is possible to watch TV using a connection through your VCR or DVD recorder to the TV,
this connection may not provide the best picture, and HDTV users are restricted to an SD
format. In addition, some content is copy protected and passing this content through the
recording device may result in a picture that cannot be viewed.
For these reasons, the connection shown is best used to provide only video and audio to
your recording device and not for normal TV viewing. The connection from the recording
device to the TV (only used for playback of recorded material) depends on the type of
device being used, the outputs that are supported, and the inputs that remain available for
use on your TV.
Consult the user manuals provided with your TV and recording device for more details on
connection options.
Cables Used in this Configuration
• 1 Coaxial Cable
• 2 RCA-type Video Cables
• 2 Audio Left/Right Cables
WARNING:
Electric shock hazard! Unplug all electronic devices before connecting or
disconnecting any device cables to the set-top.
Connecting your TV directly to the Audio/Video output of your set-top will
assure a more vivid picture and enhance your viewing enjoyment.

Connecting to an External SATA Hard Disk Drive
An eSATA drive is an extension of the internal hard drive of the DVR; it is not an archival device.
Programs recorded to the eSATA drive can be played back on the DVR originally connected
to the eSATA drive. For instance, you cannot record programs to the eSATA drive, remove the
drive, and then connect it to a computer or a different DVR for playing back programs.
Some programs will record to the DVR internal hard drive and some will record to the eSATA
drive, depending on the space available. The DVR selects the drive that has enough space
to record the entire program; a program is not split between the internal and external drives.
Cables Used in this Configuration
• 1 Coaxial Cable
• 1 SATA Data Cable
• 1 Power Cable
WARNING:
Electric shock hazard! Unplug all electronic devices before connecting or
disconnecting any device cables to the set-top.

Connecting to an External SATA Hard Disk Drive,

Complete the following steps to install an external SATA (eSATA) drive.
1. Verify that both the DVR and the eSATA drive are unplugged from power.
2. Connect the data cable for the eSATA drive to the DVR.
3. Plug in power to the eSATA drive.
4. Plug in the DVR power cord, and then turn on the DVR.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions. One of the following occurs:
• If it is a new eSATA drive or one used on another device, you will be asked to format it.
• If the drive is formatted and will work with this DVR, you will get a confirmation that
the drive is working.
Recommendations for the eSATA Drive
Contact your service provider for a list of approved external SATA hard disk drives. At a
minimum, your eSATA drive should have the following capabilities:
• External SATA Connector – SATA II Cable and Connector, Revision 1.0
(Refer to www.sata-io.org for more information)
• Drive Speed – 7200 RPM (5400 RPM without Multi-RoomTM DVR); 133 Mbps
• Capacity – Only one eSATA drive can be connected to the DVR. The DVR does not
support a separate port multiplier.
• eSATA Drive Power –The eSATA drive should power on when plugged in and should
not be controlled by a switch.
Guidelines for Using the eSATA Hard Disk Drive
The eSATA hard disk drive requires continuous power. If the eSATA drive loses power
while the DVR is plugged in, the DVR may stop current recordings or not provide enough
space for future recordings. Follow these guidelines for using the eSATA drive:
• Do not plug in the power cord for the eSATA drive to an outlet controlled by a wall
switch or to the AC outlet on the DVR.
• Do not turn off, disconnect, or unplug the eSATA drive while the DVR is plugged in.
Disconnecting the eSATA Hard Disk Drive
Complete the following steps to disconnect the eSATA drive safely.
1. Verify that the DVR is powered off.
2. Disconnect the power cord from the DVR and wait for at least 10 seconds.
3. Disconnect the power cord and data cable from the external eSATA drive.
Note: If you improperly disconnect your eSATA drive, you will receive an error message,
and you will be required to restart the DVR upon reconnecting.

Troubleshooting
If the set-top does not perform as expected, the following tips may help. If you need further
assistance, contact your service provider.
No Picture
• Verify that the power to your TV is turned on.
• If the set-top is plugged into a wall switch, verify that the switch is in the ON position.
(Avoid plugging into an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.)
• Verify that all cables are properly connected.
• If your system includes a VCR, DVD recorder, or stereo, verify that you have properly
connected the device to the set-top.
• Verify that you are using the proper input selection to the home theater set-top or TV.
• Verify that the set-top is set to the proper screen type and resolution.
• If you are using coaxial cable to connect to your TV, verify that the TV is tuned to the
channel designated by your service provider (usually channel 3). Contact your service
provider for the channel information.
No Color or Incorrect Color
• Verify that the current TV program is broadcast in color.
• Adjust the TV color controls.
• If you are using a component video connection (YPbPr), check that all connectors are
completely and properly plugged into the set-top and TV.
• If you are using a component video connection (YPbPr) and your HDTV has only RGB or
RGB-HV connectors, you must use an adapter. You can obtain the adapter through an
electronic parts retailer.
No Sound
• If your setup includes a VCR, DVD recorder, or stereo, verify that you have properly
connected the device to the set-top.
• Verify that the volume is turned up.
• Verify that the mute function is not on.
• Verify the proper input selection to the home theater set-top or TV.
• If you are using coaxial cable to connect to your TV, verify that the TV is tuned to the
correct channel.
Avoid Screen Burn-In
Images such as letterbox bars or side bars, bright closed-captioning backgrounds, station
logos, or any other stationary images may cause the display in your HDTV to age
unevenly; this is known as screen burn-in. Refer to the user manual that came with your
HDTV for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Digital Television?
Digital television (DTV) is a huge leap forward in television technology compared to analog
television that has been widely available since the 1940s. DTV is delivered and displayed
using digital encoding, similar to the way a PC operates. By using digital technology, there
is no variation in picture and sound quality from the origination point until it is displayed on
your television. You always receive a high-quality picture without the wavy lines or static you
might sometimes get from a weak analog signal. Another feature of digital television is digital
surround sound using Dolby Digital technology, which is the same technology used to produce
the sound you hear in movie theaters.
What Is Standard-Definition Television?
Standard-definition television (SDTV) is basic digital television programming delivered by your
service provider. Typically, the SDTV screen is the same, nearly square shape as an analog
television screen. Digital images on an SDTV set are crisp and clear—noticeably better than on
a standard analog television set using an antenna to receive over-the-air signals.
What Is High-Definition Television?
High-definition television (HDTV) is a completely new way to send and receive television
broadcast signals. HDTV images are made up of pixels that are much smaller and closer
together than those used in standard analog television, and there are millions of them. Thus,
HDTV can display five to six times the detail of analog television to deliver picture quality that is
much more realistic, dimensional, and precise. SDTV programs can be viewed on an HDTV.
Are Local TV Stations or Other Programmers Broadcasting in HDTV?
Many local TV stations and programmers are transmitting digital signals. However,
transmitting a digital signal does not mean transmitting an HDTV signal. Some stations are
using the new bandwidth to broadcast several standard-definition channels. Most stations
and programmers, once they begin broadcasting in digital, are offering HD content from
their parent network (for example, CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, and PBS). Contact your service
provider for more information.
Why Aren’t All the Shows I Watch in High-Definition?
A high-definition program must originate in HD format and be broadcast in HD format.
Having an HDTV system does not mean that everything you watch will be viewed in highdefinition. Getting the signal from a digital source also does not mean it is high-definition.
Why Are Some HDTVs 4:3 Aspect Ratio and Others 16:9?
The aspect ratios differ because television manufacturers build both standard-screen and
wide-screen HDTVs to appeal to consumer viewing preferences. The two aspect ratios are
as follows:
• On standard-screen (4:3) HDTVs, the programming is displayed in letterbox format in
the middle of the screen. There are bars surrounding the picture.
• On wide-screen (16:9) HDTVs, the programming is displayed on the full screen.
What Is HDMI and Does it Support Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio?
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/
video interface. The Dolby Digital audio format that provides up to 5.1 separate channels
of surround sound, and is the standard used for DVD-Video. HDMI supports standard,
enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio, such as Dolby Digital
audio, on a single cable.

What Is the Difference Between a Standard-Screen and a
Wide-Screen HDTV?
The type of screen your HDTV has (wide-screen or standard-screen) determines how the
set-top displays programs on the screen. The picture format for an HDTV is a combination
of aspect ratio and screen resolution and is different for standard-screen and wide-screen
HDTVs.
What Is Aspect Ratio?
An aspect ratio is the ratio of the width to the height of the TV screen. The aspect ratios
differ because the television industry manufactures both standard-screen and wide-screen
HDTVs to appeal to consumer viewing preferences.
What Is the Screen Resolution?
The screen resolution indicates the amount of detail that the picture displays. Resolution is
identified by the number of display lines on the screen. The techniques that an HDTV uses
to “paint” the picture on the screen are referred to as progressive and interlaced.
With the progressive scanning method, the lines are drawn on the screen one at a time
in sequential order. Progressive scanning results in a more detailed image on the screen
and is also less susceptible to the flicker commonly associated with interlaced scanning. The
interlaced method involves refreshing pixels in alternation — first the odd lines and then
the even lines.
For advanced setup, select the screen resolution that your TV can support. Refer to your
HDTV user manuals to choose the proper screen resolution (480i, 720p, 1080i) for your
setup.
For example, a screen resolution of 1080i indicates that the screen shows 1080 lines in an
interlaced display, and 720p indicates that the screens shows 720 lines in a progressive
display.
A standard-screen HDTV has a 4x3
aspect ratio. The screen is 4 units wide
for every 3 units tall.
A wide-screen HDTV is one-third wider
than a standard-screen HDTV. The screen
is 16 units wide for every 9 units tall.
