Foxsat HDR: recording & Display Format settings?

  John B 08:47 24 Dec 2008

Could anyone please advise on the following ...

"When choosing 16:9 – Widescreen TV as screen ratio, select among Auto, 4:3 Pillar Box, 14:9 Pillar Box, 16:9 Centre Cut Out, Anamorpic and press the OK button."

I have set it to 16:9 but what about the other 'among' choices ... auto I presume?


I'm using the box with a single LNB at the moment ... what are the limitations for recording please? Can I watch one channel and record a second with this setup?

You need at least a twin output LNB and two leads into the Freesat box to be able to watch one programme whilst recording another. As Quad LNB's are very cheap it makes sense to buy one of these and have spare outputs in case one goes faulty. LNB's don't work like a TV antenna, they tune to the channel you want so you need one LNB per channel you want to watch/record.
