• A 75-ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75ohm 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. (Set your TV to channel 3 or 4, typically one of these channels is used. If this
is unknown, consult your cable TV company.) 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 note: An RF switch provided with two inputs (A and B) is required (not supplied).
"A" position on the RF switch (not supplied)

CAPTION
• This TV set is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. "Closed Caption" is
a system which allows conversations,
narration, and sound effects in TV programs
and home videos to be viewed as captions on the TV screen (see the illustration).
• Not all the programs and videos will offer closed captioning. Please look for the "[_'
symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.
• The Closed Caption broadcasts can be viewed in two modes: [CAPTION] and
[TEXT]. For each mode, two channels are available: CH1 and CH2.
The [CAPTION] mode shows subscripts of dialogs and commentaries of TV dramas
and news programs while allowing a clear view of the picture.
The [TEXT] mode displays various information over the picture (such as TV program
schedules and weather forecasts, etc.) that is independent of the TV programs.
