When it has completed, press the OK button to save found services. To stop at any time or to exit without saving, press the EXIT button.

The digital receiver provides menus in several different languages. Set the Menu Language option to your desired language.

You can prevent your children from watching specific programmes by specifying a programme. If anyone is trying to watch a programme that is of or above the censorship setting, the person has to enter the personal identification number to override.

On some services, such information as weather reports, news or stock quotations is provided by means of teletext. If the current service provides teletext, the teletext symbol will be displayed on the information box. The Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) shows the current and scheduled programmes that are or will be available on each service with a short summary for each programme.
