functions of these buttons.
System Reset
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control or the front panel controls and will not power off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item like the end point of a paperclip. The TV turns Off
and the TIMER light flashes quickly for about one minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. The changes you made while the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be cancelled, however, the changes you made previously are not cancelled.
Power/Timer
The green light is a multi-function indicator. Each time the TV is plugged into the wall electrical outlet,
when power is restored after a power failure, or after using the SYSTEM RESET button, this light will flash
rapidly for about one minute. Do not attempt to turn on the TV during this period. Wait for the flashing to
stop before attempting to turn the TV on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates steadily. If the
TV has been programmed to turn on automatically using the Timer feature, this light will flash slowly while
the TV is powered off.
A/V Reset
Press this button to reset all A/V memories to the factory default settings.
Input 5
This input can be used for convenient connection of a camcorder or other video device to the TV. Please

�
Inputs 1-4
These inputs can be used for the connection of a VCR, Super VHS (S-VHS) VCR, DVD player, standard
satellite receiver or other A/V device to the TV. Please note that if you connect to the S-VIDEO terminal,
the VIDEO terminal is deactivated. The VIDEO terminal is active when there is no S-Video connection.
�
Output (Monitor and PIP)
The Monitor Output sends the TV audio and video signals from Ant-A, Ant-B and Inputs 1-5 to an A/V
Receiver or other analog A/V equipment. Monitor Output will also provide the signals, converted to analog
signals, received from Ant-DTV and IEEE-1394 products. There will be no video signals from digital
products if the original signals are copy protected.
From VGA, Component 1 and 2 and Input-DTV, no signals will be sent. The PIP output sends the PIP’s or
POP’s audio signal to an amplifier or wireless headphones. If no PIP or POP is displayed, the PIP output
will not send any audio.
�
Antenna (ANT-A, LOOP OUT, and ANT-B)
ANT-A and ANT-B receive analog NTSC signals from VHF/UHF antennas or an analog NTSC cable
system. LOOP OUT sends the ANT-A signal out to another component, such as a cable box or VCR.

IEEE-1394 Input/Output
These jacks allow the TV to connect to one or more external digital products by means of a single cable.
Three jacks are provided for this purpose, which allow for a high degree of flexibility for connecting your
system together. Please refer to the NetCommand™ Guide for IEEE-1394 device connection details.
10
Digital Audio Output
This output provides digital audio streams, such as Dolby Digital, PCM or MPEG digital audio, received
in the signal from the ANT-DTV input or the IEEE-1394 devices. This output is intended to be connected
to an external audio receiver that is capable of decoding the digital streams and converting them to
analog signals suitable for driving loudspeakers. This output does not send a signal while analog devices
connected to other inputs are being used.
11
IR Emitter-Home Theater Control Output
Two jacks are provided for connecting IR emitters. IR Emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
NetCommand™ system of the TV to control external analog devices such as VCRs, DVDs, cable boxes
satellite receivers and audio receivers.
12
Memory Card
The card slot behind the cover allows the software of the TV to be updated with expanded features by use
of a compact flash card provided by Mitsubishi. The TV does not come with a card and does not require a
card when it is first received. You should not attempt to use a flash card that is not authorized by Mitsubishi
or insert any other item into this slot as this may cause damage to your TV that is not covered by your
warranty. When software updates are available, they will be announced on our web site, www.mitsubishitv.com. If you return your Owner’s Registration card with your model and serial number, you may receive
written notification of available software updates.
14
Connecting External Devices & NetCommand™ Setup
NetCommand™ is able to control many current audio and video devices by sending remote control signals
from the TV to each device. NetCommand™ will also automatically switch the TV and compatible Audio/
Video (A/V) Receivers to the correct input used with each device. It is important that the inputs on the TV
and AV Receiver match the NetCommand™ Setup.
To simplify the installation of NetCommand™, there is a step-by-step on-screen NetCommand™ Setup
procedure. This procedure details the type and brands of devices you are connecting to the TV. The
NetCommand™ Setup also assigns preset TV and AV Receiver inputs for each device. You should
connect each device to the TV input (both audio and video) and to the AV Receiver (audio) as shown in
Figure 1.

Setup Menu: Convergence
Convergence Menu
(Figure 1)
Your Mitsubishi TV has three picture tubes which
need to be aligned to properly converge the
projected light beams on the screen. Each picture
tube projects a single color of red, blue or green.
During production, your TV was carefully adjusted
to properly align these colors. However, moving
the TV, the TV’s location in relation to the Earth’s
magnetic poles, and the passage of time can cause
these adjustments to change. As a special feature,
you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light
beams in reference to the fixed green light beam.
This process is called convergence. There are two
separate memories for convergence. One, for SD
480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals.
SD convergence should be adjusted while watching
an SD source; likewise, HD convergence should be
adjusted while watching an HD source.
Figure 1. Setup menu, (Convergence selected)
The TV should be fully warmed up before adjusting
Convergence. Turn the TV On and wait at least 30
minutes before making adjustments.

V-Chip Signal Information
When provided by the broadcaster, V-Chip ratings can be used to control which programs can be viewed or will be
blocked. When V-Chip ratings are sent, you will see the ratings when you change the channel or when you press the
INFO button on the remote control.
The V-Chip ratings information can be divided into two classifications, TV Ratings that include Content Categories
and Movie Ratings. These are explained below.
TV Ratings:
Used with TV programs and made for TV movies.
TV-Y
Youth, designed for children under the age of 7.
TV-Y7 Youth, 7 years old and older. Designed for children 7 years old and older.
TV-G General Audience. Designed for the entire family to view.
TV-PG Parental Guidance. Parental Guidance is recommended, may not be suitable for some children.
TV-14 Adolescent 14 years old and older. Not recommended for children under the age of 14.
TV-MA Mature Audience. Recommend for adults only.
Content Categories:
Used in association with the TV ratings above.
FV
Fantasy Violence- applies to TV-Y7 only.
D
Sexual Dialog- applies in different degrees to TV-PG and TV-14.
L
Adult Language- applies in different degrees to TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA.
S
Sexual Situations- applies in different degrees to TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA.
V
Violence (graphic or realistic)- applies in different degrees to TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA

General Audience- Designed for the entire family to view.
Parental Guidance- Parental Guidance is recommended, may not be suitable for some children.
Parental Guidance 13 years old and older- Not recommended for children under the age of 13.
Restricted- Restricted in the theater to 17 years old and older unless accompanied by an adult.
No Children- Restricted in a theater to 18 years old and older.
Adult- Designed for and restricted in the theater to adult audiences only. Contains explicit sexual content.
IMPORTANT: If you select to block programs that carry the V-Chip rating “Programs Not Rated”, you may block news or emergency bulletins.
Care should be used when blocking not rated programming.
When you select a TV or Movie rating, you are selecting the highest level of program that will be allowed to be
viewed. As an example, if you select TV-PG, you are allowing programs rated TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G and TV-PG to be
seen and blocking programs rated TV-14 and TV-MA. If you select a movie rating of PG-13, you are allowing movies
rated G, PG and PG-13 to be seen and blocking movies rated R, NC-17 and X. When you select a TV Content
category, you will block all TV programs that have the same content category listing. As an example, if you select
to block V (Violence) at the TV-14 level, you will also block any program that has the V category listing at the TV-PG
rating level.
IMPORTANT: V-Chip is effective for programs viewed on Ant-A and Ant-B, for devices connected to Inputs 1-5 for programs viewed on Ant-DTV
and IEEE 1394 devices. It is not applicable for devices connected to Component 1 and 2, and Inp-DTV.
IMPORTANT: Videotapes, laser discs, and DVD’s may not contain V-Chip rating signals, in this case V-Chip cannot block the program or movie.
IMPORTANT: Broadcasters are not currently required to include V-Chip rating signals at this time. If the broadcaster does not include the VChip rating signal, V-Chip cannot block the program.

Listen to is not available for devices connected to
the TV INPUTS.
• Simulated Stereo: Your TV will create a
simulated stereo effect when watching a
non-stereo program.
Level Sound (for Ant-A and Ant-B and analog
devices) automatically equalizes the volume level
of programs containing significant level differences
from one segment to another (for example, regular
programming to commercials). To receive the
best fidelity with music programs, you can turn this
setting to Off.

and play back the sound you hear.
Your choices are:
• Stereo: Default setting. The TV will play
stereo broadcasts in stereo and mono
broadcasts in mono. The word “Stereo” will
be displayed when you tune to a channel
broadcasting stereo.
• SAP (Second Audio Program): Additional
monaural soundtrack that you cannot hear
during normal TV viewing. The SAP signal
might be related to the program you are
watching, such as a soundtrack in a foreign
language, or unrelated to the program you are
watching, such as a weather report. If a SAP
signal is broadcast, the letters “SAP” will be
displayed when you tune to the channel.
Level Sound (for Ant-DTV and IEEE 1394
devices) automatically reduces loud passages and

• Contrast provides a slider to adjust the white-toblack level. Low contrast shows a variety of
shades in darker images, while high contrast
shows darker images more uniformly black and
makes colors appear more vibrant.
• Brightness provides a slider to adjust the overall
brightness of the picture.
• Sharpness provides a slider to adjust the detail
and clarity.
• Color provides a slider to adjust the color
intensity.
• Tint provides a slider to adjust the proportion of
red to green.
• Color Temp (Color Temperature) allows you to
adjust how white images are displayed. Your
choices are:
— Low 6500K or Low (for DTV): White
images will have a warm cast to them. This
adjustment is an average and can vary due to
ambient room lighting, video scene brightness
and the TV’s age. The Low 6500K represents
the 6500K industry standard for NTSC (nonDTV) pictures.
—Medium: White images will be balanced
between the Low (warm) and High (cool)
settings.
—High: White images will have a cool cast
to them. This setting may provide the most
realistic picture under bright lighting.
• Video Noise use reduction to reduce minor
noise (graininess) in the broadcast received on
Ant-A and Ant-B or Inputs 1-5 and Component
1 and 2. Use standard with good quality
signals.
58
• Image Type maximizes the original camera
media: Video or Film. Video media uses a
video camera and is created at 30 frames per
second. Film media uses a film camera and
is created at 24 frames per second. Examples
of Video media are live TV broadcast such as
news, special events, or video taped programs.
Examples of film media are motion pictures,
made-for-TV movies, and many prime time
programs. Filmed media is converted by
the broadcaster or home video company to
30 frames per second to match TV or video
standards. This conversion can leave subtle
picture artifacts or conversion errors. Setting
the Image Type to Film can reduce the picture
artifacts and improve the picture quality, when
viewing a movie from a 480i device such as a
VCR, standard DVD or antenna.
Image Type is not effective for progressive scan
(480p) devices, and high definition signals.
• Velocity Scanning Modulation (VSM)
Sharpness When turned On, selected image
outlines are emphasized, resulting in sharper
images. The default is On. When turned Off,
the velocity scanning modulation function is
prevented.

This is a wide screen TV (also known as a 16:9
TV). This shape reflects the new types of images
available from HDTV and many DVDs. There are

• Standard: This is the full screen format. HDTV
signals will automatically use this format. This
format is also useful to display Anamorphic
DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratios.
Anamorphic DVDs that have the 2.35:1 aspect
ratio will still display black bars at the top and
bottom, but will show the entire image correctly.
Narrow (4:3) images will be stretched evenly from
side to side. Available for all signals.
• Expand: This will enlarge the picture to fill the
screen, cropping off some of the image at the top
and bottom. This is useful to reduce the letterbox
top and bottom bars of non-anamorphic DVDs
or to correct narrow (4:3) images that have been
stretched in the Standard format. Available for
480i and digital SD 4:3 signals only.
• Zoom: This will enlarge the picture, cropping
off some of the image at each side and top and
bottom. This is useful to remove or reduce the
black top and bottom bars on anamorphic DVDs
with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Available for 480i
signals only.
Definitions:
Anamorphic - (also listed as “Enhanced for
Widescreen TVs) These DVDs are recorded in a
special way to properly show high-resolution images
on 16:9 TV sets in the standard mode.
Non-Anamorphic (also listed as 4:3, 1:33:1,
Letterbox or Full Screen) These DVDs are recorded
for use with traditional shaped TVs. They may be
full screen (on 4:3 or 1:33:1) which crops movies to
fit the narrow TV, or Letterboxed which adds black
top and bottom bars.
This information may or may not be listed on the
DVD case. Some DVDs support both types of
recordings.
Caution should be observed when using
the Narrow format due to the stationary
gray side bars. Please see guidelines
concerning stationary images, page 70.
64
• Stretched: This format will stretch a narrow
(4:3) image across the screen, however, there
is less stretch in the center than the sides. This
will allow the entire narrow image to be displayed
across the screen with less distortion than seen
in the Standard format. Available for 480i signals
only.
• Narrow: This format will display narrow (4:3)
images in their original shape, and add stationary
gray side bars to fill the screen. Available for 480i,
480p and digital standard 4:3 signals only.

Programming the Remote Control to Control Non-NetCommand™
After entering the correct codes in each position of
A/V Products
the remote control, use the slide switch to select
which product will respond when an operational
button is pressed. If the TV position has not been
programmed to control NetCommand™ and you
enter a code from the A/V Receiver chart while
the slide switch is set to TV, the volume and mute
functions change to match the A/V receiver. This
is useful when using an A/V receiver with the TV all
the time. In all other cases, only one of the below
devices is allowed for each slide switch position.

IMPORTANT
If the remote control has not been
programmed to operate NetCommand™
and slide switch is set to TV when you
enter an A/V receiver code, VOLUME and

than the TV. To return volume and mute
control to the TV, set the slide switch
to TV, press and hold POWER and enter
000.

IMPORTANT
Some manufacturers may change their
products, or they may use more than
one remote control system. If this is the
case, your remote control may not be
able to operate your VCR, DVD, cable
box, satellite receiver, or A/V receiver.

IMPORTANT NOTES
WARNING:
When using the VGA Input, do not leave stationary
or letterbox images on-screen for extended periods of time. Mix
types of pictures shown. Uneven picture tube aging is NOT covered
by your warranty.
The normal use of a TV should include a mixture of
TV picture types. The most frequently used picture
types should fill the screen with constantly moving
images rather than stationary images or patterns.
Displaying the same stationary patterns over
extended periods of time, or displaying the same
stationary pattern frequently can leave a subtle but
permanent ghost image. To avoid this, mix your
viewing pattern. Do not show the same stationary
image for more than 15% of your total TV viewing
in any one week. Display constantly moving and
changing images that fill the screen whenever
possible.
This projection TV uses picture tubes to project the
image to the screen. All picture tubes age with
use. As they age, their light output is gradually
reduced. Normal TV pictures fill the screen
with constantly changing images. Under these
conditions, picture tubes age at an even rate across
the entire screen. This maintains a TV picture that
is evenly bright over the whole screen. Stationary
images or images that only partially fill the screen
(leaving black or colored bars to fill the screen),
when used over extended periods of time or when
viewed repeatedly, can cause uneven aging of the
phosphors and leave subtle ghosts of the stationary
images in the picture.
Still or stationary images may be received from
broadcasters, cable channels, satellite channels,
DVD discs, video tapes, laser discs, on-line
services, web/internet searching devices, video
games, and digital TV tuner/converter boxes.
Examples of these types of images can be, but are
not limited to the following:
Letterbox top/bottom black bars: shown at
the top and bottom of the TV screen when you
watch a widescreen (16:9) movie on a standard
(4:3) TV.
Side bar images: solid bars shown on each
side of an image when watching a standard (4:3)
program on a widescreen (16:9) TV.
Stock-market report bars: ticker running at the
bottom of the TV screen.
Shopping channel logos & pricing displays: bright
graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the
same location.
Video game patterns and scoreboards
Bright station logos: moving or low-contrast graphics
are less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tubes.
On-line (Internet) web sites: or any other stationary
or repetitive computer style images.
Closed Caption Backgrounds: When set to black
or bright color, if Close Caption will be used frequently,
Mitsubishi suggests the use of the gray background.

Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
After you set the lock, you need your passcode
to view a V-Chip locked program, view the
locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip
Lock menus.
If you forget your passcode, you can view the
locked TV without entering your passcode.
This is done by pressing the number 9 and QV
buttons on the remote TV control at the same
time, when your passcode is requested. This
process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this
process deletes your old passcode and prompts
you to enter a new passcode. Pressing HOME
at this time will cancel the entire passcode.
Bypassing Front Button Lock
If you have misplaced the remote control, you
can bypass the front button lock by pressing and
holding the MENU button on the front panel for
more than 8 seconds.
IMPORTANT
Cut along the dotted line and file
bypass instructions in a safe place
for future reference.
IMPORTANT
When changing or deleting your
passcode, you must use the remote
control included with this TV. You
cannot use a Mitsubishi remote
control from another component or
a “universal” remote.

Component-1 and Component-2 Inputs
These inputs are compatible with component
video signals from standard DVD players and
other equipment sending a standard NTSC
component video signal (480i). These inputs are
also compatible with newer DVD players sending a
progressive NTSC component video signal (480p).
VGA Input
INP-DTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV
and satellite receivers with component video
(YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are
SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV
signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the
DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types.
Please check the DTV receiver specifications before
connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers
using RGB with sync on green or with “separate H
and V sync”. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV
480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals,
such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV
receiver to one of the compatible signal types.
Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems,
synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are
not currently established. These inputs will not be
compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component
video signals and DTV RGB signals, we suggest
you use the DTV component video signals. Check
the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.

NetCommand™ IEEE 1394 & HAVi System Compatibility
This television is designed to conform to IEEE 1394 AV/C and HAVi Software standards in effect at the
time of development. This exciting new networking and control technology is designed to provide highperformance digital connections and product control, making products easier to use.
At the time of development, only one other product was available for compatibility testing - the Mitsubishi
HD VCR, model HS-HD2000U. This D-VHS VCR is fully compatible with this TV.
As other manufacturers produce products that use IEEE 1394 AV/C and HAVi, they will be responsible for
the development of their products to meet the standards of the technology, as well as compatibility testing
with other products. Mitsubishi cannot be responsible for their efforts, and therefore cannot promise
compatibility with these other products. Any compatibility problems with other manufacturers products
should be brought to the attention of those manufacturers.

Appendix B: Input Connection Compatibility
This input will accommodate most computers
capable of supporting a VGA monitor. The only
compatible display resolution is 640x480. The sync
rate is 60 Hz. SVGA and XVGA resolutions are not
supported.

87
Mitsubishi Projection TV Limited Warranty
MITSUBISHI DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC. (“MDEA”) warrants to the original purchaser of this television that if purchased from an
authorized MITSUBISHI Audio/Video Dealer, should it prove defective by reason of improper workmanship and/or material:
a. Parts. The lenticular (i.e. front picture) screen and/or the DiamondShield™ is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a
period of 30 days. All other parts (except any software incorporated into this television) are warranted for a period of one year from the date of the
original purchase at retail. We will repair or replace, at our option, any defective part without charge for the part. Parts used for replacement may
be replaced with those of like kind and quality and may be new or remanufactured. Parts used for replacement are warranted for the remainder of
the original warranty period.
b. Embedded Software. MDEA warrants that all software incorporated into this television set (the “Embedded Software”) will perform in
accordance with the functional description of Embedded Software in all material respects, but MDEA does not warrant that the Embedded
Software is error-free. MDEA also does not warrant that the Embedded Software will be compatible under IEEE 1394 AV/C and HAVi software
standards with products produced by any other manufacturer. The warranty contained in this section shall continue for a period of one year. If,
after prompt notice within the warranty period, MDEA determines that the Embedded Software has failed to perform in accordance with such
functional description in all material respects and if such failure is not due to accident, misuse, modification or misapplication of the Embedded
Software, then MDEA shall modify or replace the nonconforming Embedded Software at no charge to you, which at MDEA’s sole discretion may be
fulfilled by means of modification or replacement software contained on a replacement memory card for Customer installation. The foregoing shall
be MDEA’s sole obligation to you under this limited warranty. All rights under this limited warranty on the Embedded Software also subject to your
compliance with the terms of the Software License Agreement applicable to this television, and this limited warranty on the Embedded Software
shall be null and void if the Embedded Software is modified or changed in any manner except as specifically authorized by MDEA.
c. Labor. For 30 days after the original purchase at retail, we will repair or replace, at our option, the lenticular screen if it proves defective. For
certain items that are designed to be replaced by the consumer, including (but not limited to) the Diamond Shield™ and/or some Embedded
Software, the consumer is solely responsible for any replacement labor. For all other parts, we will provide the labor for a warranty repair by an
authorized MITSUBISHI service center without charge for one year from the original date of purchase at retail.

home. Actual service labor will be provided without charge.
c. Proof of purchase date from an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer is required when requesting warranty service. Present your sales receipt or
other document which establishes proof and date of purchase. THE RETURN OF THE OWNER REGISTRATION CARD IS NOT A CONDITION

Connection: Helpful Hints
Q My VCR (or other device) does not have two sets of stereo audio outputs; how can I connect this
device’s audio to both the TV and the A/V Receiver?
A. There are two solutions:
1. Connect the single set of stereo audio outputs to the TV only. Use the Edit NetCommand™ feature
to “Change” the setup of this device. In the Connection screen part of “Change” make sure both audio
and video for the TV input are check marked and neither the audio or the video for the AVR input
are check marked. This will allow the NetCommand™ system to use the TV outputs to transfer the
device’s audio to the A/V Receiver. See Edit NetCommand™ Setup.
2. Use RCA type “Y” splitter cables to split the device’s audio output to be connected to both the TV
and the A/V Receiver.
Q. Since I have both the TV monitor stereo audio output and TV digital audio output connected to
the same input designation on my A/V Receiver, how do I switch between analog audio and digital
audio?
A. This depends on the individual A/V Receiver. Some A/V Receivers will switch automatically to digital when a
digital audio signal is supplied so you do not need to do anything. Other A/V Receivers can be manually switched
by remote control, for these types of A/V Receivers, see the NetCommand™ Guide Appendix for NetCommand™
control of this features. Some A/V Receivers will require that you make this change on the front panel of the A/V
Receiver.
Q. The front panel of my A/V Receiver is too tall or too convex for the IR emitter signal to reach the
remote control sensor of the A/V Receiver. What can I do?
A. There are several possible solutions.
1. Mount the IR Emitter on the top, front edge of the A/V Receiver over the remote control sensor.
Use tape to secure it in place.
2. Mount the IR Emitter on the underside of the self above the A/V Receiver (if the A/V Receiver is in
a cabinet). Use double sided tape to secure it in place.
3. Some small stick-on emitters from other manufacturers may be compatible with the IR Emitter
– Home Theater jacks, these may be used instead of the supplied IR Emitters.
Q. I occasionally need to see the menu from my A/V Receiver, how can I connect it to the TV for this
purpose?
A. You can connect the video output of the A/V Receiver to an unused input on the TV. Then use the
Edit NetCommand™ to “Add” this as an “Other” device, not an A/V Receiver. On the “Connection”,
screen indicate which TV input was used and check mark the video box. Make sure the TV input audio
box and both the audio and video boxes for the AVR input are not check marked. You should also name
this device so you can easily identify it on the Device Selection Menu.
Q. I have a high definition receiver I would like to connect and it also has an S-video output I would
like to be able use as well. Is there are way to connect this receiver both ways?
A. Yes, this item will appear twice in the Device Selection Menu. Just add this unit twice, once using
the Inp-DTV and once using one of the S-video inputs. Make sure you indicate that this is the same
manufacturer for both. We suggest that you connect stereo audio outputs with the S-video to the TV
so that you do not need to use two inputs on the A/V Receiver. If this is a NetCommand™ compatible
HDTV receiver that HD or SD outputs can be switched by remote control, see the NetCommand™ Guide
Appendix for NetCommand™ control of this feature.
