BEFORE USE
HD PVR Cable STB
SMT-C7140 is HD PVR (Personal Video Recorder) Cable STB (Set-top box).
Key Functions of SMT-C7140
Video Display of HD (High Definition)
Supports high-resolution video output of up to 1080p, enabling you to enjoy clear
and sharp video.
Dolby Digital Sound
Produces realistic digital sound by connecting the product to a receiver amplifier
through the SPDIF output port, which supports Dolby Digital.
EPG Support
Using the EPG Channel Guide, you can check the program information and
broadcasting schedule of a desired channel, and schedule the programs to watch.
PVR Features
One of following operation is possible.
- You can record maximum two programs.
When you are two recordings simultaneously, then you can watch only one of
current recordings.
- You can watch the VOD while recording. It is possible to pause, play, rewind and
forward.
[Timeshifting]
Timeshifting functionality is to record live program, and allow easy navigation on the
program. Since the channel you are watching live is recorded, you can watch missed
portion of the live programs.
Timeshifting can be started when you press the Pause button ( ) and
stopped when you press Stop button ( ).
Timeshifting functionality uses timeshift buffer on hard disk for the recording.
Page: 74
English _7
[Instant recording]
Automatic ability to record current live programs. A particular temporary recording
starts when you change the watched channel from the current one to another one
and stops when changing the watched channel to a different one. Note that when
one temporary recording stops, another one starts at the same time.
[Recording]
You can record TV or radio programs only on internal storage by pressing REC
button ( ) on RCU or front panel.
[Active Standby Mode/Standby Mode]
When you press the POWER button ( ) while the STB is in service (in Active
Mode), STB will switch from Active Mode to Active Standby Mode.
In the Active Standby Mode, switching to Active Mode is considerably faster than
being in Standby Mode (since the STB doesn't completely turn off thus reducing the
boot up process). After 5 minutes, the STB will switch automatically to Standby Mode
(by default, this can be changed via the Settings (menu)  Deep Standby
Timeout).
In Standby Mode, the STB stops running, so switching to Active Mode requires a
longer boot up process, so slower than switching to Active Mode from Active
Standby Mode.
Every 58 minutes the STB shall switch from Standby Mode to Upgrade Mode for 2
minutes. In this Upgrade Mode, STB shall receive some service information such as
EMMs, TDT, TOT.
Every 58 minutes the STB will perform a scanning update.
