Make sure you have completed the “over the air software update” upon start up. See page 42 of the user manual for instructions.
“Factory Reset” Also Required: Menu> Settings> Installation> Pin 1,2,3,4> Factory Reset.

The RV DSD4921 unit will not work with a 1TB or larger external hard drive unless it is externally powered. A 64GB sandisk USB stick is recommended as a replacement for an external hard drive. If your unit is still not detecting the usb or hard drive device, follow these instructions:
Disconnect usb or hard drive device, perform “Factory Reset” (see above)
Once “First Time Installation” is complete, connect usb or hard drive device. Go to Menu> Settings> User Preferences> Recording> Set Up Recording Device. The unit will format the chosen usb or hard drive device.
If you are unable to get the unit to power up. Check your external power supply to see if there is a blue light displayed on the power supply itself. If there is no blue light, the power supply is faulty and you will require a replacement. If there is a blue light and no lights on the DSD4921RV, there may be an internal fault.
If you are finding that your scheduled recordings are recording for a significant time after the scheduled program is set to finish in the EPG, check your ‘Recording start lead-time’ and your ‘Recording end delay’.
Menu> settings> User Preferences> Recording> Recording start lead-time or Recording end delay.
You will be able to change those actions from anywhere between 5mins-30mins.
The ‘Recording start lead-time’ is the time that the unit will start recording your scheduled recording before the program is supposed to start. For example if your ‘Recording start lead time’ is set to 5mins, your DSD4921RV will start recording 5mins before the program is scheduled to start. It is the same with the ‘Recording end delay’.
