Antenna Connection
CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
A 75-ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75- ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75-ohm cable to the ANT. Terminal.
Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber by
the cable TV company.
This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled channels. For more
specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your cable TV company. One possible method of
utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your cable TV company is explained below. Please

ANTENNAS
The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for black
& white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly recommended.
The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various
antenna systems.
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 (not supplied).
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 (not supplied).

Viewing Closed Captions
The unit decodes and displays the closed captions that are broadcast with certain TV shows. These
captions are usually subtitles for the hearing impaired or foreign language translations. All VCRs record the
closed caption signal from television programs, so home-recorded video tapes also provide closed
captions. Most prerecorded commercial video tapes provide closed captions as well. Check for the
closed caption symbol in your television schedule and on the tape’s packaging: .
Note:
The Caption feature does not work with YPbPr, D-Sub.
Not all the programs and videos will offer closed captioning. Please look for the

Parental Controls
This function allows TV programs to be restricted and TV usage to be controlled based on FCC data. It
prevents children from watching violent or sexual scenes that may be harmful.
Restriction of TV programs includes two ratings that contain information about the program: the MPAA
rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. The MPAA rating is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are
restricted by age and content.
Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines, both should be adjusted for
complete control.

B. Do not display the fixed image for extended periods of time.
C. Turn the power off when not in actual use.
Note:
The marking or retained image on the LCD panel resulting from fixed image use is not an operating
defect and as such is not covered by Warranty. This product is not designed to display fixed image
patterns for extended periods of time.
