Is Digital TV reception available in your home?
How do I connect this box to my TV?
Using the supplied cable, connect the plug (called RCA) onto the rear of the
Set-top box labelled Video-L Audio R . The other end of the cable connect to your television’s
Video in and Audio in. Any televisions that have mono sound (not stereo) will not
require the red plug.
Generally speaking; if this receiver was on display (demonstration) by your retailer and
you live within the same area/town/city, then it should work within your home.
If you experience break-up of picture or poor performance, it is recommended that you
contact your local TV antenna installer first. They may need to check your signal quality
for digital reception. The antenna installer may advise you to upgrade your TV antenna
to a newer digital ready antenna, and install newer cabling such as RG6 quad shield
cable.
For more information on installations, visit the Digital Broadcast Australia website found at
http://www.dba.org.au.
I don’t seem to have Digital TV reception in my home,
what shall I do?
Digital TV is relatively new to Australia and it will take time for it to be available everywhere
around Australia. If Digital TV reception is not available to you, simply place together all
packaging and supplied cables back into the box neatly. Have your receipt (proof of
purchase) ready and contact your place of purchase for further details on what you
should do.
1 Connect your antenna lead directly into the antenna connection on the rear of the box.
2 Be sure to select AV or EXT input on your television by using the television remote
control.
3 Switch on the set-top box. If all connections are right, you will see the AUTO SEARCH
screen appears on the television.
4 Simply press the RED button (SUB.T) to start tuning process.
5 Please read the user-manual thoroughly
to enjoy this product.

Q. Should I upgrade the software inside my TEAC box?
A. If your are experiencing technical difficulties with your Product please check the website

Q. I do not have a computer, and would like to upgrade my box. What can I do?

Total Care on 1800 656700 9am to 5pm EST.
Feature & specification may change without prior notice.
Q. What best describes Standard Definition Television?
A. You get DVD quality picture and CD quality sound on every network, all the time.
Q. The clock on my digital receiver is wrong. Why?
A. Make sure that your receiver is set to the correct time zone. (Refer to manual about
selecting state you live in) Unlike other electronic appliances in your house, the clock is
set by the broadcaster and not TEAC's box. Therefore if the clock is still wrong, change
to another television network to see the correct time.
Q. On my digital receiver I have some channels numbered 350, 351, 352, etc. Why?
A. The STB supports logical-channel-numbering. In some areas the broadcaster may not
be sending their channel number. The Australian requirement for STB design says that
any services without a channel allocation are to be given a number from 350 to 399.
The TEAC box will do this automatically for you.
Q. My digital receiver has new channels on it and I did not re-tune anything. Why?
A. The product supports network-updating. Therefore, if a broadcaster begins sending new
services (multichannel or multiview), the box will automatically add them in for you.
There is no need for you to re-tune anything.
Q. Can I still use it to see Closed Captions?
A. YES. The receiver has its own teletext decoder which enables you to nevigate teletext
pages regardless of your television. To activate Closed Captions, press SUB.T key.
