I have recently acquired one of these, and note that on the front LHS
of the box is a window described as 'status display' in the product
overview in the manual, p.5. This display is in red, and is extremely
dim, only just visible in a darkened room, and certainly not visible
in daylight. Is there any way of setting it to a higher brightness?
I've looked through the manual but don't immediately see a reference
to it. Plenty on the TV screen display, but nothing about the status
display AFAICS. Likewise the on-screen menus and settings.
Somewhere in here you should find the answer, I think.
I strongly recommend installing the Customised Firmware, it makes the
unit so much more flexible.
Unfortunately not. A pity as it is a proper dot matrix display rather
than 7 segment or starburst. It's also a pity that the programme name is
shown in a rather odd combination of truncation and scrolling.
I've heard that the display is, in fact, a white VFD behind an orange
filter. Some people remove the filter, but, then, it might be rather too
Ah, that's useful to know. If the filter can be removed, I could
perhaps replace it with a less dense one if having no filter is too
bright. I'm sure I could rustle up a bit of coloured plastic film from
A little searching brought up instructions and Youtube video on how to
remove the filter.
