================================================
1. All Channels Scan and Channel Remapping Issue
================================================

You will need to perform All Channels Scan only if the default autoscan is 
unable to completely memorize all channels (i.e., if the frequencies of 
certain channels are not listed in the default frequency table).

When you perform All Channels Scan, frequencies starting from 50 MHz to 800
MHz which correspond to active channels will be memorized. Each will be 
assigned to a channel number, starting from channel number 1 and onwards. If
you need to change a channel back to its original channel number, use channel
remapping to reassign the channel number.

Perform this function will take you about 3 to 5 minutes, please be patient.

==========================================
2. Time Shift and Interactive Record Issue
==========================================

To run Time Shift or Interactive Record functions, you need a sound card which
can support full-duplex operation to capture and playback sound simultaneously. 

The playback quality of Time Shift (or Interactive Record) function is based on
the CPU power of PC. If the CPU speed is fast enough and with MMX support, you
will get the better performance at Time Shift (or Interactive Record) function. 

The list below is known sound card device driver which do not support full-duplex operation:
. Creative PCI 64/128 under Win98SE system
. MDMate CMI8738 VXD Driver (AudioExcel)
