About connections
7.2.1 What you need to know
Connect your device with the highest possible
quality connection.
Look for the highest quality connection on your
device. Use that connection to your TV.
HDMI - Highest quality ★★★★★
An HDMI connection has the best picture and

Information about how to
re-tune your TV during the
digital TV switchover.
Keep this user manual safe
- you'll need it.
.........................................
Television in the UK is going digital, bringing us all
more choice and new services. Starting in late 2007
and ending in 2012, television services in the UK
will go completely digital, TV region by TV region.
Please see the next page to find out when your area
switches to digital.
Digital UK is the independent, non-profit organisation leading the process of digital TV switchover in
the UK. Digital UK provides impartial information on
what people need to do to prepare for the move to
digital, and when they need to do it.

How the switch over affects your
TV equipment :
Your new TV has a digital tuner built in, which
means it is ready to receive the Freeview signal by
simply plugging it into your aerial socket (check if
you can get digital TV through your aerial now, or
whether you'll have to wait until switchover, at
www.digitaluk.co.uk).
When the TV switchover happens in your area, there
are at least two occasions when you will need to
re-tuner your TV in order to continue receiving your
existing TV channels, and also to pick up new ones.
If you have any questions, please contact your
equipment supplier or call Digital UK on ...
0845 6 50 50 50 or visit www.digitaluk.co.uk
How to re-tune:
ENGLISH
Digital UK, the body leading the digital TV switchover, will advise you when you need to re-tuner
during the switchover.
If you choose to connect your TV to satellite or
cable with a digital box then it will no be affected
by switchover, and you won't need to re-tune.
To find out how to re-tune your TV, check this user
manual for details.
Go to section 6.1 Automatic installation and go to
Step 4 Install TV and radio channels.
If you do not re-tune your channels when advised to
do so by Digital UK, you may lose some or all of`
your channels until you do re-tune. You should
re-tune your TV every few months to check for any
new channels.
If you are missing any channels, it may be that they
are not available in your area, or that your aerial
needs upgrading.
When does switchover happen?
* Copeland switches on October 17, 2007
The exact date you switch
depends on the transmitter
you are served by. To check
when you switch, go to
Digital UK's postcode
checker on
www.digitaluk.co.uk.
Check your ITV news service
or look at Teletext page 106
to see what TV region you're
in.
