Watch terrestrial TV in high definition

Superior TV experience

1080p via HDMI for superb HD picture quality
With video upscaling to 1080p you’ll be able to see even more detail thanks to a sharper, more true-to-life picture. The resulting HD video output signal can be shown on your HD television through an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connection.

Optimal sound purity with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio output
Because Dolby Digital standards, the world’s leading digital multi-channel audio standards, make use of the way the human ear naturally processes sound, you experience superb quality surround sound audio with realistic spatial cues.

Reduced power mode

Standby consumption < 1 W
The smart power management of the receiver leads to power saving in standby mode. The receiver goes to the standby mode that achieves < 1 W power consumption automatically, without your intervention.

Simplified control

8-day Electronic Programme Guide
You want to know what programmes are available today and for the next 7 days so that you can avoid missing your favourite shows by planning your evenings or making pre-scheduled recordings. The data is broadcast by the programme broadcaster, and when this data is available, the product compiles the information and lists it in the TV Guide. Simply enter the menu or press the GUIDE button on the remote control to access the programme guide. The programme guide will provide programme information listings for today and the next 7 days.

Automatic protection for your scheduled DVD/Video recordings
You can schedule up to 8 recordings either via the Set-up menu or via the Electronic Programme Guide. At the recording start time the receiver will tune the programme to be recorded and will be locked to protect the recording, which you may have scheduled a long time ago. You will have to cancel the recording to remove the protection and recover control of your receiver.
