It’s really simple to use; it’s all done using the clear, easy to understand on-screen menus which are
operated from the remote control. It also has a reminder function so that you won’t miss your favourite
programmes.

TV channels and up to 24 digital radio stations,
without a subscription or contract. For more

A digital box lets you access the free digital
channels that are broadcast in the UK. It
uses a digital signal, received through your
normal aerial and lets you watch it through
your existing television.
This product is capable of receiving and
decoding Dolby Digital Plus.

you can watch high definition TV via a HDMI
lead when connected to a HD Ready TV.

Help and advice
Frequently asked questions
What you can do
The set top box will not switch on. What
should I do?
Check the mains power cable and make sure it is
plugged into a suitable power outlet. Check that the
mains supply is switched On. Connect the power

The set top box does not seem to work and
there is nothing shown on the TV.
Are the Standby Indicators blue? If they are not:
• Press the [STANDBY] button on your remote
control.
• Make sure that all cables are firmly connected
to the set top box and TV.
• Check that the set top box is properly plugged
into the power supply.
If the standby indicators are blue:
• Check you have the correct channel and input
selected on your TV.
• Check that all cables are correctly attached.
• Check the brightness level of the TV.
• If you have connected the set top box to your
TV using a HDMI cable, ensure the correct
settings have been chosen for your TV. For
more information, see page 16.
The picture appears to be ‘squashed’ or ‘cut

Help and advice
Frequently asked questions
What you can do
The picture or sound keeps breaking up.
There are several possible causes of this type of
problem.
• Your signal may be weak, you may have an
old, low performance or damaged aerial, or
the cable between your aerial and TV may be
damaged. Check for any obvious damage to
the aerial and cables and make sure that the
connectors are properly fitted. If this does
not work, get a professional to check the
installation – your aerial may provide a better
signal if it is moved somewhere else.
• Please remember that older aerials and indoor
aerials aren’t as effective as new outdoor and
roof aerials. Or, try using a signal amplifier or
booster to improve the reception. Check the
digital TV coverage in your area. For more
information about digital TV reception, please
visit www.freeview.co.uk.
No channels were found when searching for
channels. I am missing some channels.
Some TV channels are not available in every area.
