Front Panel Format Button
The Format button located on the front panel of the RNG200N set-top allows you to
quickly change the video output format used by the Component Video (YPbPr) and HDMI
outputs. The RNG200N set-top is capable of providing the following video formats on the
YPbPr and HDMI video outputs:
High Definition 1080i (1920 x 1080 pixels)
High Definition 720p (1280 x 720 pixels)
Enhanced Definition 480p (720 x 480 pixels)
Standard Definition 480i (720 x 480 pixels)
The RNG200N set-top is also capable of passing through High-Definition 1080p 24/30/60
(1920 x 1080 pixels) source content over the HDMI video output.
The Format button is intended to allow you to select a video output format that is
compatible with a connected display device. Some televisions may not support all four
video formats listed above. The Format button provides an easy method for selecting an
output format that is compatible with your television.
The Format button is intended to complement the User Settings Menu (see Configuring
the Audio, Video, and Closed Caption Settings). It is not intended to replace the User
Settings Menu. The User Settings Menu is the preferred method of optimizing the RNG
set-top to operate with your specific television.
If you cannot get a video display when the RNG set-top is connected to your television
via component video or standard HDMI cables, use the Format button to select a video
output format that results in a viewable picture on the display screen. Once a viewable
picture is available, use the User Settings Menu to optimize the RNG200N set-top
display settings for your specific television.
Video Format Indicators (Front Panel Display)
The front panel display of the RNG200N set-top is equipped with indicators to the right
hand side of the display that are used to indicate the currently-selected video output
format on the component video (YPbPr) and HDMI outputs. As the Format button is
depressed, the front panel format indicators will change to illuminate the currently
selected video output format in use by the RNG set-top.
Note: There are some scenarios where the RNG set-top does not change the video
output format if the Format button is depressed. In these scenarios, the RNG200N set-
top will flash the currently illuminated video format indicator on the front panel display. If
this should occur, please use the User Settings Menu to make further changes to the
video output settings of the RNG200N set-top.
Note: Availability of certain features is dependent upon application support.
