Interactive additional services and additional information about the current channel via internet
"SiehFern INFO Plus" (SFI+)
This extended electronic programme information service (ePID) allows TechniSat to offer a free current and comprehensive overview of a large number of channels. The programme preview extends up to seven days and has been extended to include a search function, a sorting function for genres and (with satellite reception) picture material on selected programmes. The timers can be activated quickly and easily via SiehFern INFO Plus.
The free TechniSat channel list manager does away with tedious manual channel scanning. When channels change frequency or switch on/off, this service provides an automatic way of updating the list of channels available. This process runs if you have agreed to updating. Customised lists are retained and amended where necessary.
When using the TV for the first time you must create a few important settings (specifically adaptation to local conditions). Clear instructions from the installation wizard provided by TechniSat guide you through easy-to-understand dialogues, enabling you to carry out the required configuration easily and rapidly. Your TV will therefore be ready for use in a short time.
TechniFamily can be used to set up password-protected user profiles. Customised access options and restrictions can be defined for each profile, e.g. for selected channels, daily television viewing times and a maximum duration of use. In this way parents can adjust viewing behaviour as appropriate for the child.
Detection of broadcast time postponement in DVR mode
Pay TV ready
This TV also enables you to receive encrypted channel content requiring payment (Pay TV). To receive Pay TV, you need a subscription to the relevant Pay TV provider.
Universal Plug And Play (UPnP)
This TV can be easily integrated into a home network via the integrated Ethernet interface (with optional additional WLAN adapter), enabling various multi-media devices such as a PC, TV, hi-fi, digital cameras and much more to be interconnected by UPnP/DLNA.
HTML5-based video-on-demand services such as YouTube can be used on ISIO devices thanks to integrated HTML5 support. As HTML5 video is the standard for integrating video on websites, there will be many additional HTML5 offerings available on ISIO receivers in the future.
Recorded programmes can be edited later via handy cutting and editing tools (e.g. to remove advertising slots).
Programme location mixing
For example, combination of analogue and digital cable channels in a channel list.
This receiver is compatible with all TechniRouter products. It supports SCR technology with the extended DiSEqC protocol as per European standard EN 50494. SCR (Satellite Channel Routing) is a technology that is used to transmit multiple satellite channels to a specified receiver at a unique frequency in a single cable system.
This free updating service from TechniSat keeps the software on your device up to date. As soon as enhancements or improvements to the operating software are available, the set carries out an automatic software update at the appropriate time (adjustable in the menu on the TV). This ensures a high level of future-security and a wider and improved range of functions.
