General questions

To be able to use the additional services, your Horizon HD Recorder or your HD Mediabox must have a return path-compatible connection. That means that it is not only able to receive signals (such as the TV signal), but is also able to send signals back to us via the “return path”. This is necessary so that you can use our additional services. The return path-compatible connection is only guaranteed if you connect your device correctly to the 3-in-1 cable connection, however. If this is not the case, your device will receive the TV signal, but not send a signal back and will therefore not activate any additional service. 

The return path compatibility of your connection allows you to watch a film in MyPrime or OnDemand. This selection has to be sent to our server so that we can provide you with the correct film. The sending of this selection is referred to as the «return path». 

The multimedia adapter is required if you wish to use several receivers such as an HD Mediabox and a modem, for example, with the same 3-in-1 cable connection. It also helps you connect your receivers correctly thanks to the labelled sockets.
