The A/V Network is a special system that MitsubishJ
developed to
make it easier to use several Mitsubishi
products with only one
remote control. Only one of the products needs to be in "line of
sight" of the remote control. When the supplied cable is connected
between two Mistubishi
products with A/V network, you can point
the remote control at the TV and it will "pass" the remote control
command to the others.
Mitsubishi VCRs that have Active A/V Network

about the Active A/V

point the remote control at one product and it will "pass" the remote
control command to the other. In addition, Active A/V Network will
automate the TV's input selection and the playback of Mitsubishi
VCRs into a single command.

decoder
Many broadcasters
now supply closed captioning infor:mation along
with their regular broadcasts.
Your TV can decode that information and display it on the TV screen.
Closed captioning was initially designed so that those with hearing
difficulties could more fully enjoy viewing television.
However,
closed captioning can also be used in other ways, such as:
• helping children learn to read
• learning a foreign language
• using the television without disturbing
There are two types
standard
and text.
of captioning
others
that broadcasters
can send:
Standard
captioning
is related to the program that is being
shown. Standard
captioning
usually follows the dialogue of the
characters
on-screen and only displays when the broadcaster
is
sending the closed captioning.
Text captioning
often contains information
such as weather or
news. Text captioning blocks out your view of the program you are
watching.
Your TV can decode four different standard
captioning
signals and
four different text captioning signals h'om each TV station.
However, each station may be broadcasting
only one or two captioning
signals, or none at all.
