Set up your TV Box by connecting the power supply and HDMI cable to your TV.
Once the set top box is wired up and you turn it on (remembering to select the correct HDMI port from the ‘Source’ menu on your television) you will arrive at a Welcome Screen.
Select the language for the setup and click OK. It will then prompt you to select the internet connection mode.
The first time you connect you will get a message saying ‘A new version of the Netbox software is available. Your Netbox will update and then restart.’ Click ‘Update’ to get the latest software. The screen may go black for a while whilst the box re-boots and you will then get a ‘service update’ screen.
Once the upgrade is complete you will arrive back at the welcome screen. You will need to select the language and internet connection again (although it should have remembered your settings).
You are then asked to enter a ‘Parental Control’ PIN. Selecting 16 for example means that all linear TV content with certificates saying ‘Suitable for viewers aged 16 and over’ will be blocked out until the PIN is entered.

We recommend connecting your TV using a wired service, such as an Ethernet cable, to guarantee service quality however the TV service can also be set up on a wireless connection.
1. Via WPS. Ensure your router is connected and press the WPS button on your router. Within two minutes select the WPs option on the Gibtelecom TV welcome screen. Your set top box should connect to the Wi-Fi network.
2. Select your network and enter password manually. After selecting ‘Wi-Fi’ select your home network from the list of visible SSIDs (network names). Once you have selected your network you will need to enter your password using the Gibtelecom TV remote. There is a show password option to view your entry before submitting to ensure it is entered correctly. Select ‘Join’ to connect to the network.
