How to connect a signal booster
If you are missing channels, the reason for this is likely to be signal strength, you should consider connecting signal booster and
re-tuning the TV.
As part of our ongoing development to reduce power consumption, we have added an extra function to this Television called
‘Ecohome’ (you will see this during the first time installation set up). Power consumption using the Ecohome function is
approximately 15% lower than some other modes. The picture brightness is reduced using the Ecohome function. If this function is
not suitable for your viewing environment, you can select other modes as necessary. (Please note, ‘Professional’ mode is for optimum
default picture settings, however, power consumption is approximately 15% higher than ‘Ecohome’ mode)
Please refer to the user guide section ‘Picture settings’ in order to change the mode to one that maybe more suitable for your
environment. There is also a shortcut button on the remote control called ‘P-Mode’ should you wish to change to another mode.

For the best 3D picture effect, watch your TV from vertical angle +/- 10°.
3D Type- When connecting a 3D product sometimes the picture maybe displayed incorrectly; choose from the following settings to
correct this. You can toggle these settings by pressing the '3D' button on your remote (see page 11).

Side by Side
3D format is commonly used in 3D broadcasting, works by halving the horizontal resolution of videos to
store left and right eye images in each frame. It effectively displays up to 960 x 1,080-pixel pictures to each
eye, enabling TV stations to telecast 3D content at a much lower bandwidth compared with 3D Blu-ray discs.
Typical supported resolutions are limited to 720p and 1080i for 3D TV programs.
Top Bottom
3D format is alternative for 3D broadcast, which is pretty similar to side-by-side 3D except that it halves the
vertical resolution instead. Available primarily up to 720p resolution, top-and-bottom 3D offers 1,280 pixels
horizontally. The higher pixel count is generally considered more suitable for displaying panning motion in
sports programs.
Frame Packing
As its name suggests, this format stacks the left and right eye images in each frame to retain the content's
original resolution for the best 3D pictures. Most, if not all, 1080p 3D Blu-ray movie discs and 720p PS3 3D
games are produced utilizing this technique. Another key differentiator is that all 3D TVs should be able to
automatically detect frame-packing 3D signals and correctly display the content without user intervention.
Line by Line
The picture signals for left and right eyes are interleaved in alternate lines. The left clip’s resolution is halved
then placed in the odd lines of the video stream. Correspondingly, the right clip’s resolution is halved then
placed in the even lines of the video stream. When combined the video stream totals 1920×1080.
Exchange 3D L/R- change picture sequence for different viewing
2D to 3D- Changes the picture from regular 2 dimensions to 3 (3D). Please note as content is being changed by the TV the effects are limited
English
Users will need to manually select the correct 3D format to properly display side-by-side
3D content on a 3D TV.

Frequently asked questions
I would like to have louder
sound by connecting
additional speakers.
There are 2 options:
1) Use Digital COAX output connected to an external amplifier/surround sound
system.
2) Use the 3.5mm headphone output and a 3.5mm to phono cable (available
separately) to connect to an amplifier/surround sound system.
General
Why are some options in
the menu unavailable and
greyed out.
Some options are only available in certain sources, i.e. HDMI, PC/VGA. They are
unavailable in the other sources where they have no affect.
TV
I have tuned in Digital TV
but I am not receiving any
or all of the channels and/
or the channels I receive are
breaking up.
1) Check you are in an area that can receive Digital TV .
2) Check you are using an aerial that is able to receive a good digital signal. In most
cases, you will need an outdoor digital hi-gain/wideband aerial. In areas that have
excellent digital coverage, you may be able to use a loft type aerial but it is highly
likely that you will also need to connect a booster between the back of the TV and the
TV aerial wall socket. Unfortunately, to receive a good enough digital signal, it is not
possible to use a portable/indoor type aerial.
TV
I have re-tuned my television
but when I switch it off it is
not storing the channels.
Complete a first time installation, please refer to the set-up menu section of the
manual of how to do this.
VCR/DVD
Recorder
I have connected the TV to
my VCR or DVD Recorder via
SCART but it is not recording.
In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the
wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD
Recorder to the TV.
Game Consoles
I have connected my PS3 to
the TV via HDMI, but I am
not receiving any pictures or
sound on my Television.
1) Ensure the TVs source is on HDMI.
2) Check your settings on your PS3 are as per the PS3 instruction manual.
Game Consoles
I have connected my Xbox
360 to the TV via Component
Cables (Red, Green & Blue)
but I am not receiving any
sound.
Component cables only provide HD Pictures. For the sound you will need to connect
the Red & White audio cables on the Xbox to the Red & White phono inputs on the
rear of the TV. Please refer to the ‘Connections’ pages.
USB Mode
I have inserted a USB Memory
Key, but the TV does not
recognise it.
Ensure the USB Memory Key is formatted to type FAT32.
USB Mode
Using a USB portable hard
drive.
If you wish to use a portable hard drive larger than 32GB, please note that it must
be formatted to the FAT32 file system in order to operate on this TV. Windows XP/
Vista computers are only capable of formatting up to 32GB, therefore, you will need a
software programme/utility to format larger hard drives. Please refer to the web site
for more information.
System Lock
I have changed the password
on the television and now
forgotten it.
There is a master password of 4711, to gain access to the TV menu and reset the
normal password.
3D mode
The picture is not displaying
correctly
Press the 3D button to toggle through the different 3D picture formats.
