This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards but, like any electrical equipment,
care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured.
DO read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
DO ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections between pieces of equipment)
are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or
DO consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment.
DO be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
DON’T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is damaged in any way^switch off,
withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON’T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON’T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is designed for unattended operation or has
a standby mode. Switch off using the switch on the equipment and make sure that your family knows how to do this. Special
arrangements may need to be made for infirm or handicapped people.
DON’T use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the requirements of road safety. It is illegal to
watch television whilst driving.
DON’T listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
DON’T obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings. Overheating will cause damage and shorten
the life of the equipment.
DON’T use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws^to ensure complete safety always fit the manufacturer’s approved
stand or legs with the fixings provided according to the instructions.
DON’T allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
If your DR-M150 reports that no digital signals were found after auto-tuning, or if the number of channels found is fewer than
expected, this does not necessarily indicate a fault. Because of the nature of digital transmissions, there can be several external
causes for this.
The following information may help you determine the exact cause.
Digital transmissions are broadcast at much lower power and on different channels or different transmitters to analogue transmissions. This
may mean that you will require an aerial upgrade in order to receive them. Some smaller transmitters do not yet transmit digital signals at all.
To see if you are in an area covered by digital signals, use the online postcode checker at http://www.dtg.org.uk/consumer/coverage.html.
This will give a good indication of the conditions in your area. A more detailed version of the postcode checker, which shows more details of
the channels you can expect to receive in your area, is available at http://www.dtg.org.uk/retailer/coverage.html. Please note that these
postcode checkers give a good indication of what is available but, due to local conditions, they cannot be 100% accurate.
If you require an aerial upgrade to receive digital transmissions, you should first contact your dealer who should be able to advise on a suitable
aerial. If this is not practical, you should choose an aerial installer who is a member of the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI). All CAI
members conform to a code of practice. You can search for your local CAI registered installer at: http://www.cai.org.uk/asp/installer.asp
If you have a shared communal aerial system, this may be designed to receive only the analogue transmissions in your area. You should
check with your landlord or local housing authority to see if your aerial system can be upgraded to receive digital transmissions.
Please note that unless you are located very close to the transmitter, it is very unlikely that you will be able to receive digital transmissions
reliably with an indoor aerial.
If you have any other questions regarding the reception of digital transmissions, please call JVC Customer Services on 0870-330-5000.
Some Do’s And Don’ts On The Safe Use Of Equipment
