Note:
Standard Definition TV (SDTV): Basic digital television transmission that may be
displayed with fewer than 480 progressively scanned lines (480p) in 16:9 or 4:3 format.
480 interlaced (480i) is the quality of today’s analog TV system. SDTV provides
150-300,000 pixels.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV): A better digital television transmission than SDTV
with at least 480p, in a 16:9 or 4:3 display. 480p is the quality used by most DVD
players. EDTV provides 300-400,000 pixels.
High-Definition Television (HDTV): The best quality digital picture, widescreen
(16:9) display with at least 720 progressively scanned lines (720p), 1080 interlaced lines
(1080i), or scaled 1080 progressively scanned lines (1080p). HDTV provides
900,000-2.1 million pixels.
Please Note : 1080p is scaled to the panel’s native
resolution and can only be achieved through the source, HDMI.

Television Antenna Connection Protection
External Television Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is to be connected to the LCD TV, make sure that
the antenna or cable system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against
voltage surges and static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 70, provides information with
regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in
wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of the grounding conductors, location of antenna
discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements of the grounding
electrode.
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the LCD TV during a lightning storm or when it is left
unattended or unused for long periods of time, unplug the LCD TV from the wall outlet
and disconnect the antenna or cable system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it could fall into
such power lines or circuits.

tuner that uses a high definition antenna to tune to local channels. If your
local channel broadcasts in high definition this tuner will display high
definition picture on the TV.
HDMI
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface.
This type of
connection is designed so that 1 single cable can handle both high definition
digital video and audio at the same time.
To view video and listen to audio
with this source you must have a HDMI to HDMI cable. This type of
connection is primarily used by satellite or digital cable boxes, up
conversion DVD players, and HD DVD players.
HDCP
HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. This type of
function is designed so high definition videos cannot be copied while hooked
up to a recording device. HDCP is enabled in HDMI and in HDCP DVI mode.
This type of connection is primarily used by satellite or digital cable boxes
and up conversion DVD players. Please note to get sound out of HDCP mode
you must connect an audio cable from your audio video device to the audio
port labeled “Audio In”.
DVI
DVI stands for Digital Video Interface. This type of connection is designed so
video can be digitally transferred to the television displaying the colors
of any video more accurately and vividly. This interface can be used by PC
only. Please note to get sound out of DVI mode you must connect an audio
cable from your audio video device to the audio port labeled “PC Audio In”.

VGA stands for Video Graphics Array. This type of connection is designed so
X37
Page17
people can use their PCs on the 37” LCD/TV. This type of connection is
primarily used by personal computers. Please note to get sound out of VGA
mode you must connect an audio cable from your audio video device to the
audio port labeled “PC Audio In”.
TV
This connection is for the TV tuner only. TV tuner is actually a NTSC
standard tuner, which can scan over the airwave UHF/VHF or Analog Cable
(cable directly hooked up into the TV) TV stations and display them at
standard definition (regular TV video resolution). This connection is
primarily used by non-HD antennas or analog cables.
AV1/AV2 This connection is for common audio video devices that use RCA (red,
yellow, and white) cable. This connection is primarily used by VCR, DVD
player, DV camcorder, and video game consoles (XBOX 360, PS3,
Gamecube).
YPbPr 1
YPbPr is commonly known as component. High definition audio video
YPbPr 2
devices can be connected to the port via 3 wires, red, green, and blue. Older
audio video devices that display high definition video use this port. This

function with the code. If you have trouble getting the channel or volume buttons to work,
please try the directional buttons on your universal remote rather than your regularly used
volume buttons.

The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are added to

Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions Explained

Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. It allows you to
view conservations, narration and sound effects as subtitles on your TV.
Closed Captions are available on most TV program, and on some VHS home
video tapes, at the election of the program provider.
•
Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption service available on digital TV
programs (also at the election of the service provider). It is a more flexible
system than the original Closed Caption system, because it allows a variety of
caption sizes and font styles.
•
Not all programs and VHS video tapes offer closed caption. Please look for the
CC symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.
•
In the Closed Caption system, there can be more than one caption service

Each is identified by its own number. The CC1 and CC2 services
display subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the program’s picture.
•
In the Closed Caption system, the TEXT1 or TEXT2 services display text that is
unrelated to the program being viewed (e.g., weather or news). These services
