MENU – SETUP

Reception

Select  FCC

you can choose the max channel with FCC the max is 7 channels.

press green button to save your configuration

The options that we can configure are the following in addition to the number of channels:

  • Zap up/down:  With this option we enable the quick change of channels to work with the channel up and down buttons.
  • Previous/next story:  We activate FCC so that it works also in the history buttons of changing channels
  • Deactivate FCC in recordings:  In case we make recordings, FCC is deactivated

When activated depending on the number of channels that we have selected, the receiver’s tuners will occupy us, in this example we select 4 maximum channels, since 4 tuners are occupied, as we see in the capture.
