Hi Jackie, who said you couldn't delete a programme? Of course you can, just press the red button when a programme in the library is highlighted.

                   John.

Hi Carol

Yes, I now have both and I'm happy too, mainly because it's exactly for me
as it is for you, old school! (smiles).

In fact, I've now managed to record a couple of programme series from the
EPG and, for those who said you couldn't delete stuff from the HD, you can.
We tried an experiment last night as I found it staggering that you would
have to wait for the HD to fill up before you could delete its contents.

We recorded, just for the hell of it, 10 minutes of Channel Five news as it
was just something short and sweet to try out.  We were watching something
else, so set a timer for it.  When it started, we got an audible
announcement while we were watching another channel.  After Britain's Got
Talent ended, which is what we were watching, we went to see if the Channel
Five news had come out, and so it had.  Then we went into the library and
deleted it.  Our library was then empty, so I don't understand what people
mean when they say you can't delete programmes from the HD because the
instructions and those I followed clearly worked.  It says in the manual
that you can delete recordings and timers.

If I'm missing something, or have got this wrong, then please accept my
apologies.

So far though, so good.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Jackie,

I know all about those days ... but do find it useful to have both
BrailleNote and Braille hard copy instructions. Because I'm "old school", I take in more reading hard copy but do like, once I know an instruction book
a little, to use the "Find" of the BN to get where I want to get quickly.
Make sense! Probably not, but then never mind ... Now we have both and I'm
well happy!

Hi Carol

Well I'm having one of those days where everything happens and
everyone comes at once, so I haven't had any real time to play with my
new toy, and have been going round instead putting in wireless keys
and ensuring BT works well.

I must say that the Apple products were the easiest to do in this
regard, (no surprise there then), (smiles).

Madleen is very helpful, but the instructions should have made her
explanation abundantly clear which they did not I have to say.  Never
mind, it's more or less sorted now.
Still waiting on Braille instructions too, but am using my
BrailleSense to read it for now.  It's fine, but you can't beat hard
copy Braille to really jump about.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Jackie,

From my experience, it seems that, as Madleen so kindly alerted me,
you have to plug in the box, then wait for the OK that it wants to
proceed with a tune, then you press the blue button and that did work
for me eventually! However, if you try pressing the blue button too
soon then it doesn't appear to work and, anyway, how do you know when
the screen is showing the message anyway?  (I would like to have seen
the input clearer for us at that stage.)

I gather, anyway, that you're now up and running and that's a good
thing.

Have to set up my first recordings tonight, but we have a problem with
our TV (which was there before we set up the
box) so we may not get what we want!

Hi Carol et al,

So glad you've raised this as I was going to.  Our box arrived
yesterday. We plugged the HDMI cable into the TV and TVonics, and of
course the roof aerial.  The problem is that Martin no longer has
enough sight to read anything, but could just about detect there was
some writing on the screen.
I pressed the blue button on the remote, but nothing happened.  There
was no speech, and I can't skip through the AV settings on our TV as
I don't know where the AV button is on the telly's remote control.

I was under the impression, obviously the wrong one, that this
product spoke out of the box once it was plugged in.  According to
the instructions - and therein lies a real gripe with me - you plug
in the leads, press the blue button and away you go.

As for the instructions, I was told a Braille copy of these would be
sent with my box.  When it arrived, there were no instructions,
except the standard print variety which, of course, were of no
consequence to ourselves.
We downloaded a Word copy from the RNIB online shop and have put them
onto my BrailleSense until the hard copy Braille instructions arrive.

Until we get sighted assistance, I think we are stuck to be honest.
We hear the box whirring, but can't go any further.  I have a feeling
that, when we turn on the TV, it jumps automatically to the new box,
but it just doesn't speak, and I don't want to go pressing buttons
here and there in case we make the situation worse.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Hi all,

Well, thankfully my TVonics arrived today and I've tried setting up
as follows:

My aerial cable (from outside) is in the Aerial in socket, The other
aerial socket has the aerial between box and TV.  The HDMI cable
between TV and box as stated in instructions.

It does not state in the instructions whether you need to tune the
box independently first, before putting on the TV, so we've tried
tuning both ways.  On each occasion, we've said OK to tune, since
there doesn't seem to be any other option my friend can see, and the
tuning has just gone on and on ... so we've turned off the power to
the box, given it a good 20 seconds and tried again with TV on, but
still no go!

In addition, when we first switched on, we pressed the blue button,
as speech didn't automatically come on.  We still haven't managed to
get speech on as there seems to be no bypassing the channel search.

Hopefully someone somewhere can pinpoint where we've gone wrong,
advise of anything else I can do, and we can get up and running very
soon.

Thanks for any advice for this poor novice who's never set up a TV
and box before!  <Smiles>
