Post STX-HD100 Front Panel Replacement Instructions

A replacement front panel for the STX-HD100 is now available from SageTV:

This new front panel corrects the problems where the STX-HD100's original front panel reduced the unit's IR sensitivity for remote control.

If you have one of the original STX-HD100 units ordered in December 2007 and you would like a replacement front panel, please send an email to orders at sagetv dot com with the following information:
  • Your name
  • Your STX-HD100 order number
  • The number of panels you would like (this cannot exceed the number of units you ordered)

Your replacement panel should be shipped to you within a week of receiving your request. The time to receive it after it is shipped depends on how far it has to travel. There is no charge for ground shipping.

Instructions for replacing the front panel are below.

Front panel installation instructions

Once you have the replacement front panel for your STX-HD100, installing it is simple, using the following steps:

1) Remove the existing front panel

Disconnect your STX-HD100 and find a clean work area.

Find a knife or thin flat-head screwdriver that you can use to pry off the exiting panel. In order to reduce the possibility of scratching the plastic box while prying the panel loose, try placing the edge of the blade between the box and panel edge on either the left or right sides to find a place where the gap is widest, such as:


Once you find the spot you want to use, slip the blade under the front panel's edge and lift:

Continue sliding the blade under the panel and pull it loose...

... until it is completely off:

2) Prepare the new panel for installation

Once the existing panel has been removed, prepare the new panel by first removing the clear cover from its front:

Then, remove the cover from the adhesive backing:

Once the protective covers have been removed from the new panel, it is ready for installation:

3) Install the new panel

The easiest way to set the new panel into its proper position is to place the STX-HD100 upright on its back, then align the new panel with the buttons on the right front side so that the buttons on the unit align with the holes in the panel. Once the holes & buttons match, the rest of it should fall into position:

When you are satisfied with the placement, press the new panel firmly into place. Installation of the new panel is complete:

Reconnect the STX-HD100, and you are done.
