True Digital
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) This device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
User's Guide
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation.
Privacy of Communications may not be ensured when using this product.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television that is
"receiving" the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications
equipment and receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiving antenna is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an experienced
radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications
Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, "How To Identify and Resolve Radio/TV Interference
Problems." This booklet is available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C.
20402. Please specify stock number 004-000-00345-4 when ordering copies.
Notice: The changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
