1.3	 Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install the ASUS TV Tuner
Card/Box.
•	 Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any
component.
•	 Use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or a metal
object, such as the power supply case, before handling components to
avoid damaging them due to static electricity.
•	 Hold components by the edges to avoid touching the ICs on them.
•	 Keep all components, such as the host adapter, in their antistatic bag
until you are ready to install them. Likewise, whenever you uninstall any
component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the bag that came
with it.
•	 Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the ATX power
supply is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply.
Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard and

	 reference to an image that represents the normal situation before
	 VideoSecurity Online started detecting the variation. You may view
