Memorizing the Channels
Your TV can memorize and store all of the available channels for both “off-air” (antenna)
and cable channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH and CH
buttons to scan through the channels. This eliminates the need to change channels by
entering the channel digits. There are three steps for memorizing channels: selecting a
broadcast source, memorizing the channels (automatic) and adding and deleting channels
(manual).
Selecting the Video Signal-source
Before your television can begin memorizing the available channels, you must specify the
type of signal source that is connected to the TV (i.e., an antenna or a cable system).
1
Press the MENU button
to display the menu.
Press the
UP/DOWN
buttons
to select “Channel”, then
press the ENTER
button.
2
Repeatedly press the
ENTER
button to
cycle through these
choices:
Air, STD, HRC or IRC
(all cable TV).
Press the

buttons to select the
Video signal source,
then press the
ENTER
button.
Press the EXIT button
to exit.
Note : STD, HRC and IRC identify various types of cable
TV systems. Contact your local cable company to identify
the type of cable system that exists in your particular area.
At this point, the signal source has been selected.
Proceed to “Storing Channels in Memory” (next page).

The restrictions for these two
groups work independently:
If a household includes very young
children as well as young adults,
the TV guidelines must be set up
separately for each age group.
(See next step.)

At this point, one of the TV-Ratings is selected.
Press the ENTER(

See the next step to change any of the following sub-ratings:
FV: Fantasy Violence
D: Sexual suggestive Dialog
L: Adult Language
S: Sexual situation
V: Violence
Note 2: The V-Chip will automatically block certain categories that are “more restrictive.” For example,
if you block “TV-Y” category, then TV-Y7 will automatically be blocked. Similarly, if you block
the TV-G category, then all the categories in the “young adult” group will be blocked
(TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA). The sub-ratings (D, L, S, V) work together similarly.
(See next section.)

Using Your TV as a Computer (PC) Display
How to Set up Your PC Software (Windows only)
The Windows display-settings for a typical computer are shown below.
However, the actual screens on your PC will probably look different, depending upon
your particular version of Windows and your particular video card. Even if your actual
screens look different, the same, basic set-up information will apply in most cases.
(If not, contact your computer manufacturer or Samsung Dealer.)
First, click on “Settings” on the
Windows start menu.
While “Settings” is highlighted,
move the cursor so that “Control
Panel” is highlighted.
When the control panel screen
appears, click on “Display” and a
display dialog-box will appear.
Navigate to the “settings” tab on
the display dialog-box.
The two key variables that apply to
the TV-PC interface are “resolution”
and “colors.” The correct settings
for these two variables are:
* Size (sometimes called “resolution”):
15" 1024 x 768 pixels
17" 1280 x 1024 pixels
20" 640 x 480 pixels
If a vertical-frequency option exists
on your display settings dialog box,
the correct value is “60” or “60 Hz”.
Otherwise, just click “OK” and exit
the dialog box.
