Antennas
To enjoy a clearer picture, use an outdoor antenna. The following is a brief explanation of the types of connections
that are used for a coaxial cable. If your outdoor antenna uses a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector,
plug it into the antenna terminal at the rear of the AVC System.
F-type connector
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type
connector that can easily be attached to a terminal without
tools (Commercially available).
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
2. A 300-ohm system is a flat “twin-lead” cable that can be
attached to a 75-ohm terminal through a 300/75-ohm
adapter (Commercially available).
300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)
Cable TV/VCR connection
• Be sure to connect the antenna or the cable converter as follows. Signal reception may fail if improperly connected.
• Be sure to remember what kind of connection is made with your System.
• The connection type will determine whether to select “Air” or “Cable” for both ANALOG-A and B when configuring “Air/
Cable” settings.

Connecting D-VHS Decks (i.LINK
connection)
Connecting two or more D-VHS decks
Up to 16 D-VHS decks can be connected using a
daisy-chain connection with i.LINK cables.
About i.LINK
i.LINK is an interface connection using a serial
transfer system and is able to transfer multimedia
data, such as digital images and digital sound,
between devices that have i.LINK terminals.
i.LINK is a term defined in the IEEE 1394 (Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers) standard.
Currently, the transfer speeds are at 100 Mbps, 200
Mbps and 400 Mbps, each of them expressed as
S100, S200 and S400 respectively. On this System,
the maximum speed is 400 Mbps.
i. LINK devices that can be connected to this
TV.
Only D-VHS decks can be connected to this System.
Other devices such as DVD recorders, digital video
cameras, computers or computer peripheral devices
do not meet the specifications for this System and
therefore, cannot be connected.
When 3 or more D-VHS decks are connected,
branch connection can be used. With branch
connections, up to 62 D-VHS decks can be
connected.
Materials that can be recorded with the i.LINK
Only digital programs can be recorded by D-VHS
decks connected to this System using the i.LINK.
i.LINK recording is not compatible with ground-wave
broadcasts or external input signals (INPUT
terminals 1 through 5).
i.LINK connection
E.g. When only one D-VHS deck is connected:
NOTE
• Please make sure the shapes of the terminal and the plug
match, and insert the plug into the terminal straight, not
on an angle.
• Use either one of the terminals. These two terminals do
not differ in quality or function.
D-VHS deck
Only an i.LINK cable is needed to connect the AVC
System and the D-VHS deck. (VIDEO, S-VIDEO, and
AUDIO terminals need not be connected.)
Cautions regarding i.LINK connection
• Please use S400 type i.LINK cables.
• Some i.LINK devices may not relay data if their power
is off. This System can relay data during power off,
by selecting “Active” in the “Standby Mode” option
in “i.LINK Setup”. (See Page 61.)
• Please do NOT use a loop connection as shown in
the diagram.
• When using the i.LINK, do not turn off the power of,
or pull the cable from i.LINK devices, even if those
i.LINK devices are not in use. This may affect the
picture and the sound from a D-VHS deck in use.
• If devices such as DVD recorders, digital video
cameras, computers and computer peripheral
devices which are not compatible with this System,
are connected to the System using i.LINK, other
i.LINK connections may be disrupted.

04.7.8, 8:52 AM
Using external equipment
Setting the recording mode (i.LINK)
• The function for automatically adjusting the recording
mode of connected D-VHS decks can be turned on
or off.
• Since most of the currently available D-VHS decks
automatically recognize the transfer rates of the
pictures and sound being recorded and control the
recording mode accordingly, you should always set
this Mode to “Pass thru” in normal circumstances.
• Depending on the D-VHS deck used and the type of
broadcast being recorded, this System may not
adjust the recording mode properly. In this case,
please set the “Recording Mode” to “Pass thru”.
Setting the Standby Mode (i.LINK)
• Power consumption during standby mode can be
minimized by changing the setting of the “Standby
Mode” in “i.LINK Setup”.
• When i.LINK is not in use, select “Inactive” in
“Standby Mode”.

5
Press c/d to select “Auto” or “Pass thru”,
and then press ENTER.
• Normally, this should be set to “Pass thru”.
“Active”: Power continues to pass through the i.LINK
circuit so data can be relayed.
“Inactive”: Power consumption is minimized during
stand-by mode. Data cannot be relayed at this
setting.
NOTE
• When the main power of the System is in standby mode
(POWER indicator lights off), i.LINK control commands
cannot be received from a D-VHS deck. This does not
change even if the “Standby Mode” is set to “Active”. To
control the System from a D-VHS deck, turn the System
power on (POWER indicator lights up in blue).
• Data cannot be relayed between i.LINK devices when all
the following conditions are met: 1) More than one i.LINK
device is connected to the System with i.LINK cables, 2)
“Standby Mode” is set to “Inactive”, and 3) The power of
the System is in standby mode (POWER indicator lights
off). When the System is connected between two i.LINK
devices in series, select “Active” in “Standby Mode” or
connect the System at an end of the series as shown in
the diagram.

Parental control (setting V-CHIP level)
V-CHIP is an electronic filtering device built into your System. This tool gives parents a great degree of control
over broadcasts accessed by their children. It allows parents to select programs judged suitable for child
viewing while blocking ones judged not suitable. It does so automatically once you activate the V-CHIP feature
in your Liquid Crystal Television.
“V-Chip” and “Status” will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your secret
number. (See page 81 for Secret number setting for parental control.)
• The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: TV Parental Guidelines and movie ratings.
• The TV Parental Guidelines work in conjunction with the V-CHIP to help parents screen out inappropriate

Canadian Rating Systems
• The TV rating systems in Canada are based on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications
Commission (CRTC) policy on violence in television programming.
• While violence is the most important content element to be rated, the structure developed takes into
consideration other program content like language, nudity, sexuality and mature themes.
• When setting the V-CHIP on the Canadian system you can choose either the Canadian English ratings or the
Canadian French ratings.
Canadian English ratings
Rating
Age
Description
E
Exempt: Includes news, sports, documentaries and other information programming; talk
shows, music videos, and variety programming.
C
Children: Intended for younger children under the age of 8 years. Pays careful attention to
themes that could threaten their sense of security and well-being.
C8e
Children over 8 years old: Contains no portrayal of violence as the preferred, acceptable,
or only way to resolve conflict; nor encourage children to imitate dangerous acts which
they may see on the screen.
G
General: Considered acceptable for all age groups. Appropriate viewing for the entire
family, contains very little violence, physical, verbal or emotional.
PG
Parental Guidance: Intended for a general audience, but may not be suitable for younger
children (under the age of 8) because it could contain controversial themes or issues.
14e
Over 14 Years: Could contain themes where violence is one of the dominant elements of
the storyline, but it must be integral to the development of plot or character. Language
usage could be profane and nudity present within the context of the theme.
18e
Adults: Intended for viewers 18 years and older and might contain depictions of violence,
which while related to the development of plot, character or themes, are intended for adult
viewing. Could contain graphic language and portrayals of sex and nudity.

■ When you change your address
• If you change your address, please return the
CableCARD to your Cable Provider Company.
• You will need to request a new CableCARD from the
cable provider at your new location.
■ About EAS(Emergency Alert System)
• In the case of a national emergency, natural disaster,
or other emergency situation, Cable MSO will
broadcast an Emergency Alert System Message
(EAS message). When this unit receives an EAS
message, if the level of emergency is comparatively
low, an alert text message will be displayed on
screen. If the level of emergency is high, the receiver
will be force tuned to a details channel.
• Alert text messages will be displayed, and force
tuning will occur, even during paid programming.
Even when force tuning is active, the user can still
change the channel.
• If the unit is force tuned to a channel that has been
blocked by Parental Control, the Parental Control
setting will be given priority.
NOTE
• If you have a digital cable antenna connected, you can
receive EAS messages whether CableCARD is inserted
or not.
• EAS messages may be broadcast not only via digital
cable, but also via Analog Cable (ANALOG-A) or overthe-air Analog transmission (ANALOG-B).
• When force tuning occurs, Video output from the
MONITOR OUTPUT terminal will also be switched to the
details channel.
• An alert text message does not output from MONITOR
OUTPUT terminal.
• If force tuning occurs during twin picture mode, twin
picture display will be automatically terminated and the
details channel will be displayed on the full screen.

Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
96
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly
delayed. This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near
a heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: –4°F to +140°F (–20°C to +60°C)
