Please follow the setup steps in the order they are given to ensure that your LaCie RikikiTV is properly connected to your TV.
Plug the included USB cable to the USB ports on the RikikiTV and your television. Since many televisions include multiple USB ports, please make certain that you connect the RikikiTV to the port for recordable USB hard drives. In many instances, the port has identifying text that reads USB HDD/USB REC or something similar. Please check your television's user manual to make certain that you have plugged the RikikiTV into the appropriate USB port.
Your television will manage all program recording to the RikikiTV via its remote control. Please refer to your television's user manual for details on how to prepare your RikikiTV for recording and playback. Additional information for certain television models is available at RikikiTV Setup
The RikikiTV is also compatible with audio/video devices that include a USB port, such as digital TV receivers, Internet TV boxes, Blu-ray players, game systems, and media players. For a complete list of devices compatible with the RikikiTV, visit RikikiTV Compatibility List.
Please refer to your audio/video device's user manual for instructions on installing USB hard drives such as the RikikiTV.
