7 CONNECTING YOUR DCH RECEIVER
Video Connection Options
The DCH receiver offers several different video connection options. Component
video, HDMI, and IEEE-1394 allow you to view both High-Definition and StandardDefinition TV programming. Composite video, S-Video, and RF coaxial connections
allow you to view only Standard-Definition TV programming.
To determine whether your TV features component video, HDMI, IEEE-1394,
S-Video, or composite video, check the manual supplied with your TV.
Use the guidelines below to determine the best video connection for your
home entertainment system. Note: Only (1) video connection to the TV is
required. HD video can only be viewed with HDMI, IEEE-1394, or component
video connections.
•
HDMI or IEEE-1394 — HDTV and SDTV
HDMI and IEEE-1394 offer higher quality HD video than component video.
•
If your TV has an HDMI input, this is for both audio and video. Connect an
HDMI cable to the TV and to the HDMI connector on your DCH receiver.
•
HDMI and IEEE-1394 outputs provide video and audio, so no separate audio
connections are required if you plan to use your TV’s speakers as the primary
audio source.
•
If your TV has a DVI input, connect a DVI-to-HDMI adapter or cable to the
HDMI out connector on the DCH receiver and the DVI-HDTV connector on
your TV.
DVI does not provide audio. A separate audio connection must be made.
•
Component video (YPbPr) — HDTV and SDTV
The YPbPr connectors on your DCH receiver provide HDTV and SDTV
component video.
•
S-Video — SDTV
If a component video input is not available on your TV, use the S-Video
connection.
•
Video (also referred to as composite video) — SDTV
If an S-Video input is not available on your TV, use the composite video
(video) connection.
•
RF Output — SDTV
If no other input is available on your TV, the RF Output of the DCH3416 can
be connected to the Antenna or Cable Input on your TV. The RF Output
carries both video and audio. Set your TV to channel 3 or 4.

component video instead.
•
Verify on the User Settings menu that closed captions are enabled on the
DCH receiver.
•
Verify that closed captions are enabled on the TV.
Note: Closed captioning may not be available on the current program.
There are black bars to
the right and left of the
picture
Wide screen TVs display 4:3 programs in this format unless set to Stretch. Turn on the
4:3 OVERRIDE feature in the User Settings menu. This enables most wide screen TVs
to stretch the video to fill the screen (see your TV manual for information about
stretching 4:3 video).
•
If the DCH3416 is connected to a wide screen TV, verify that the TV TYPE is
set to 16:9 in the User Settings menu.
Many HD programs are broadcast in pillar-box format with black bars to the left and
right of the picture. These programs are broadcast in 16:9 HD formats even though
the video is not 16:9.
There are black bars
above and below the
picture
All 4:3 HDTVs display HD programs in letterbox format (black bars above and below
the picture) because of the shape of the display screen.
•
Turn on the 4:3 OVERRIDE feature in the User Settings menu. This enables
most standard screen TVs to display a full screen picture when the DCH3416
is tuned to a 4:3 program.
•
Set the TV TYPE to 4:3 Pan-Scan. This enables the DCH3416 to remove the
black bars above and below the picture when possible.
Some SD programs are broadcast in the letterbox format with black bars above and
below the picture. Some widescreen TVs offer a zoom feature that may be able to
remove the black bars (see your TV manual for information about zooming 4:3 video).
34
9 TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Possible Solution
There are black bars on
all four sides of the
picture
This may occur on a 4:3 TV if the 4:3 OVERRIDE setting is OFF. To set 4:3 SD
programming to fill the screen, depending on the capabilities of the TV, set
4:3 OVERRIDE to 480i or 480p.
This may occur on a 16:9 TV if the active video for an SD broadcast is in letterbox
format. To confirm, wait for a commercial or look for a graphic, such as a network
logo. If the commercial fills the screen from top to bottom, or the graphic appears
below the active video, the program is being letterboxed by the broadcaster. You can
minimize this by activating the zoom feature on the TV.
A broadcaster may include black bars on either side of a wide screen broadcast. This
is called a “hybrid” aspect ratio and results in a black border surrounding the video on
a 4:3 TV. Because this is part of the broadcast, the DCH3416 cannot correct the video.
You may be able to minimize the border using the zoom feature on the TV.
Colors do not appear
correctly
Be sure to match up each signal to the same YPbPr connection on the TV, otherwise
the colors will not appear correctly on your TV.
The DCH receiver is
making a humming
noise.
The DCH3416 includes an integrated hard drive and a fan for cooling. During normal
operation, the DCH3416 emits a low humming noise, similar to a personal computer.
The noise varies in volume occasionally when the speed of the internal fan adjusts to
changes in the temperature around the DCH receiver. Please note the hard drive will
stay on even when the DCH3416 is turned off (standby).
