Disappointing Just bought one of these on the name really. Two major drawbacks. 1. If you select something to record from the EPG. Very good machine. Ive had this machine a couple of months now and had no problems at all.

The Service Provider is the programme distributor. If you are subscribing to services from more than one Service Provider, you might have to change between different Smartcards and/or CA modules. Please note that a Smartcard and CA module may only be valid for a single Service Provider and due to this, a specific range of channels. The Smartcard and the CA module may also provide access to special menus not described in this manual. If so, please follow the instructions from the Service Provider. Only free to air channels are available without the Smartcard and/or the CA Module. Note: The Smartcard and / or the CA module are distributed by your Service Provider. After inserting the card, leave it in the slot permanently. Do not remove it again, unless your Service Provider asks you to do so. This is important, because if your Service Provider wants to download new information to the Smartcard, the card has to be in the slot. * Only use a DVB Standard Common Interface CA Module. WARNING: Do not insert or remove module when the set-top box is running.

TEXT Many digital terrestrial television channels not only broadcast pictures and sound for programmes but also pages of information on the programmes, the weather, news and many other topics. This digital teletext can be displayed by the receiver.Some channels are entirely given over to digital teletext and carry no normal TV programme at all. These dedicated digital teletext channels will not give a quarter-screen image in the EPG or the Channel List screen. When such a channel is selected, after a brief pause, they will usually display the opening page of information automatically. Other channels have digital teletext pages broadcast alongside the television programme and often include a reduced-size broadcast picture within digital teletext pages. These usually require the TEXT button to be pressed to activate the digital teletext pages.In both cases, moving through the different pages of information is accomplished in a variety of ways, dependent on the individual broadcasters, but including use of the 5/6/3/4 and [OK] keys to select items from on-screen menus, and the coloured keys to jump directly to particular pages. You can exit teletext mode by pressing the TEXT button on the remote or by changing channel. Also if you call for the INFO bar or bring up a menu you will temporarily enter TV mode returning to TEXT mode when you cancel the menu or INFO bar. You can exit any digital teletext channel by changing channel in any of the normal ways. You can leave the digital teletext function of a combined digital teletext/programme channel, to return to normal television viewing of that channel, by pressing the TEXT key.Calling for the information banner or any menu on-screen stops the receiver from displaying the digital teletext pages and they are temporarily replaced by a blank picture while the banner or menu is displayed.Digital teletext cannot be accessed when the Subtitles are enabled. WIDE TV sets are available with screens of the standard (4:3) format and widescreen (16:9) format. When you first installed your receiver you specified the format of the connected TV (this can now be altered if necessary; see Configuration)Digital terrestrial television broadcasts are also made in both standard and widescreen formats. In particular, films and dramas tend to be broadcast in widescreen format to closer emulate the cinema experience, but some programmes such as news bulletins are 4:3. To help get the most from both TV set and programme when a widescreen film is watched on a standard TV, or a standard broadcast is viewed on a widescreen set, the receiver includes the WIDE key.So long as the receiver has been correctly set up for the TV set connected, a widescreen programme will always be displayed correctly on a widescreen set, and a standard format programme will correctly fill the screen of a standard format TV. With a widescreen TV set displaying a standard format programme the WIDE key switches between displaying the picture with black bars down the sides, and enlarging the picture so that it fills the whole width of the screen but the top and bottom are cropped off.With a standard format TV displaying a widescreen programme, the WIDE key switches between displaying the picture with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, and filling the whole height of the screen but cropping the sides off according to instructions broadcast with the programme (called 'pan and scan').The effect of the WIDE key on the picture display is cancelled by pressing WIDE again. NOTE: Sometimes the TV will automatically try and compensate for an incorrect screen format, in this instance set the tv to the correct format whilst viewing the programme.
