Using the Channel List The channel list is an alternative way of viewing the channels that are available on ASTRO. The list will display details of all available channels superimposed over the programme you are currently watching, and will also indicate which channels have been selected as your favourites, or channels that have been locked.
CHAPTER 3 : Using the Channel guide When you are watching ASTRO programmes, you can display the current and future programme information using the Channel Guide. The Channel Guide contains programme information for all available channels up to 7 consecutive days ahead. •...
CHAPTER 4 : Using the Channel Pilot Channel Pilot displays the same information as the Channel Guide but in a different form. The main purpose of the Channel Pilot is to be able to acquire programme information on the current and next programmes on every channel very quickly, while being able to watch the selected programme at the same time.
CHAPTER 5 : Using the Parental Control Feature Parental Lock is a parental control feature which enables you to block access to any particular channel. When a locked channel is selected for viewing, your PIN code will be prompted. Only those who know your PIN code will be able to unlock the channel for viewing.

CHAPTER 6 : Using the Personalized Scheduler The “Personalized Scheduler” function enables you to programme your DMT to switch ON and OFF at the beginning and end of a selected pro- gramme, for up to 8 different programmes. Your video recorder can then be set to record ASTRO programmes at the designated time and date.
CHAPTER 7 : Using the Favourite Channel List The favourite function allows you to group your most frequently watched channels into a favourite list, which are then easier and faster to access. When using the P+ and P- buttons to change channels with the favourite mode set to ON, only channels contained in your favourite list will be selected.
CHAPTER 8 : Using the Message Function Your DMT has the ability to display messages that have been sent to you by ASTRO, perhaps about a special offer or details of your current subscription package.
