Guide to Digital Light Processing® and Digital TV
What is Digital Light Processing® (DLP)?
Digital Light Processing® is the world’s only all-digital display chip and a key ingredient in the best digital projectors available
today. DLP® technology uses an optical semiconductor to recreate source material with fidelity analog systems cannot match.
What is Digital Television (DTV)?
Digital Television (DTV) is a relatively new type of broadcasting that promises to transform television viewing into a whole new
experience. Digital technology is used to capture images and sound to deliver a better picture quality. DTV technology is also
capable of multicasting and interactive capabilities.
There are many levels of digital television quality. The most common are:
Standard Definition TV (SDTV)
SDTV is the basic level of quality display and resolution for both analog and digital. Transmission of SDTV can be in the
traditional (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) format.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV)
EDTV is better in picture quality than analog television. The formats for EDTV are 480p widescreen (16:9) or traditional (4:3).
EDTV is in the middle range quality between SDTV and HDTV.
High Definition TV (HDTV)
HDTV has the highest quality for digital broadcast formats. Its resolution is widescreen format (16:9). Combined with digitally
enhanced sound technology, HDTV sets new standards for sound and picture quality in television.
DTV is by far a more flexible and efficient technology than the analog broadcast system. Analog broadcasts can only provide
one program at a time. Digital television can broadcast a high definition program or more than one standard definition
program at the same time.
Preparation
Do not insert the power plug in a wall socket
before all connections are made.
The major benefit of this DLP® projection television is its large viewing
screen. To see the large screen at its best, test various locations in the
room to find the optimal spot for viewing.
Be sure to allow a minimum of 15 cm of space around the TV.
To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet colour changes, and increased chance of
set failure, do not place the TV where temperatures can become excessively
hot – for example, in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance.
Magnetic fields, such as those of external speakers, may cause the picture
to distort if the speakers are placed too close to the television. Move the
magnetic field source away from the TV until there is no picture distortion.
2
Connections to the TV
Your integrated digital TV automatically decodes and displays the four basic DTV
picture resolution standards.
- SDTV (Standard Definition TV) are broadcast as 480i (480-line interlaced) or 480p
(480-line progressive scan) video.
- HDTV (High-Definition TV) are broadcast either in the 1080i or 720p formats,
always with a widescreen picture.
Note: Progressive scan video (p) is more like that you see in a movie theater. Images are
much more distinct and free of flicker, and motion is smoother.
Next to analog NTSC broadcast reception, your TV has an integrated High Definition
TV tuner which receives, decodes and displays terrestrial ATSC and unscrambled
cable (QAM) signals.
HDTV quality is only reproduced when a broadcaster or cable provider broadcasts
HDTV signals.
Note: Ask your broadcaster or cable box provider to transmit/enable HD content to your
home.
&
There are 2 ways to get HDTV content:
- via cable,
- via antenna.
Note: This drawing is used wherever you can connect cable or antenna.
Via Cable
Connect the cable TV signal to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack at the bottom of
the TV. See page 7 for details on using "Autoprogram" to store channels in the TV’s
memory.
Note: this connection will supply stereo sound to the TV if it is being broadcast by the station
you are watching.
& Cable box with RF IN/OUT
é
CABLE
• Connect the incoming cable TV signal to the cable IN jack 1 on the back of the
cable box.
• Connect a coaxial cable (not supplied) from the TO TV jack on the back of the
cable box to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack 2 at the bottom of the TV.
Note: Your cable box may have a different label for the TO TV jack, such as
OUTPUT or OUT.
• Set the OUTPUT CH switch 3 of the cable box to CH 3 or 4 (whichever is
correct for your cable box), then tune the TV to the corresponding channel.
Once tuned, change channels at the cable box, not the TV.
Note: This connection will not supply stereo sound to the TV. The reason is that the RF
output on a cable box - labeled TO TV, OUT or OUTPUT for example - will not send
a stereo signal to the tuner (VHF/UHF) input on a TV.
é
Watching Cable TV programs that
don’t require the cable box
Since you’ve connected the cable TV signal
directly to the TV’s tuner, you can also watch the
unscrambled programs by simply tuning to the
desired channel. You must first use Autoprogram,
however, to store channels in the TV’s memory.
See page 7.
Note: This connection will supply stereo sound to the
TV if it is being broadcast by the station you are
watching.
Cable box with A/V outputs
• Connect the incoming cable TV signal 1 to a signal splitter (not supplied). The
signal splitter enables you to avoid having to use the TO TV jack on the back of
the cable box. This jack will not supply stereo sound to the TV.
Note: Your cable box may have a different label for the TO TV jack, such as
OUTPUT or OUT.
• Connect a coaxial cable (not supplied) to a connector on the signal splitter and to
the CABLE/ANTENNA jack 2 on the TV.
• Connect another coaxial cable (not supplied) to a connector on the signal splitter
and to the cable IN jack 3 on the back of the cable box.
• Connect A/V cables (not supplied) to the VIDEO and AUDIO L and R outputs
on the back of the cable box and to the AV2 video (labeled VIDEO) and
AUDIO (labeled L and R) jacks 4 on the back of the TV.
• To view programs from your cable box, first press the AV button on the remote
control.
• Press the cursor down or up buttons until the AV2 signal source is selected.
• Press the OK button to confirm your selection. The AV2 input source becomes
current for the viewing of cable TV programs through your cable box.
Note: If your cable box Audio/Video outputs will not supply video and stereo audio to the
TV, you will need to make the connection shown above in the example “Cable box with
RF IN/OUT”.

Cable box with S-Video, component video (YPbPr)
or HDMI connectors
See Connect Accessory Devices, p. 22-23.
Via Antenna
Via antenna you can watch whatever DTV programs being broadcast in your area
for free.
If you’re not sure what HDTV programming is available in your area, contact your
local content provider or your local electronics store retailer.
Broadcasters are in the middle of a transition from analog to digital TV. This means
that a given broadcaster will have two channels on the air, one analog and one
digital.
Connect the incoming antenna signal to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack at the
bottom of the TV. See page 7 for details on using Autoprogram to store channels
in the TV’s memory.
Note: This connection will supply stereo sound to the TV if it is being broadcast by the
station you are watching.
Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS)
Satellite systems offer many of the same premium channels as cable systems, and
often at a lower price. To get these channels, you’ll need to install a small dish
antenna outside.
There are 2 main DBS systems: DirecTV & DishNetwork. These systems require
separate, proprietary set top receiver boxes to decode their signals and send them
to your digital TV set. These boxes may include a digital TV tuner for off-air DTV
broadcasts.
Satellite broadcasters also provide major local channels, depending on the market
in which you live.
DBS also provides service in areas not covered by cable because they are in rural
areas or other areas not passed by a cable line.
DBS also allows you to watch pay-per-view events.
Setting up the TV
Connect all your accessory devices. See p. 22-24.
Refer to the bottom of the set for the correct operation voltage. Insert the
power cord in the wall socket.
Consult your local dealer if your mains supply is different. To prevent damaging the
power cord which could cause a fire or electric shock, do not place the TV on the
cord.
Setting up the remote control
Insert the 2 batteries supplied. Be sure the (+) and (-) ends of the batteries line
up correctly (inside of case is marked.)
The batteries supplied do not contain the heavy metals mercury and cadmium. Please
check on how to dispose of exhausted batteries according to local regulations.
Turn the TV on
From main supply:
Ensure that the main supply is turned on.
Press the power switch . at the front of the TV.
An blue indicator light on the front of the TV lights up.
Note: When the TV is turned on by the main supply, the blue indicator light will blink
for 45 seconds. This is the lamp's start-up period. When the light goes off, press the
POWER button on the remote control or power switch . to turn on the TV.
From standby:
Press the POWER button on the remote control.
4
Use of the remote control

• Background autoprogramming occurs only when the TV is turned on.
• Channel information of an ATSC channel is updated only for the ATSC channel currently tuned.
• If an NTSC channel is tuned, then in Background Autoprogramming the TV will scan all the possible ATSC frequencies and update information.
• Weak channel installation : This allows you to manually tune weak ATSC channels in order to adjust the antenna and thus optimize signal quality for that
channel. (See Installation menu, Weak channel installation, p. 8.)
• Once you have searched for the available Antenna as well as the Cable TV channels, they are stored in the memory.

Digital Channel selection delay
Due to the tuning complexity of subchannel digital
programming, the time to select and view a digital
channel may take slightly longer than what the viewer
is normally accustomed to (as compared to analog
channel programs).
Digital channel broadcasts contain program and
system data information that must be processed
before the channel selection can be displayed.
When you tune an audio-only digital subchannel, a display appears with the
message Audio only.
Subchannel selections
The new standards employed with digital broadcasting make it possible to receive
multiple program channels under a single major channel number which can be
selected by pressing the digit remote control direct-access channel number entry.

by automatically compensating and changing ambient light condition.
Aspect Ratio
The ratio between the width and height of the TV picture on the screen. In a normal TV set the aspect ratio is 4
to 3 (4:3). The new aspect ratio in HDTV is 16:9 which resembles the aspect ratio in a movie theatre
(Widescreen). New TV systems support both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio and can automatically switch between
them.
Audio Video (A/V)
A term often used when discussing a channel on a TV receiver or on video equipment, which has been especially designed
to accept VCR audio-video signals. This channel automatically activates special circuitry within the TV set to prevent picture
distortion and skewing. It is also used for audio-video processors, which handle both types of signals.
ATSC
ATSC: Advanced Television Systems Committee. Formed to establish technical standards for advanced television systems,
including digital high definition television (HDTV).
CVBS
Composite Video Baseband Signal. In broadcast television this refers to the video signal, including the colour information
and syncs.
CVI (Y Pb Pr)
CVI (Component Video Input) is a type of connection that uses a cinch-type connector to allow set top boxes or analog
DVD players to connect a signal to the TV. By offering the cinch-type input (YPbPr) the primary colors, red, green and blue
are connected from a set top box directly into the TV allowing for the signal to display on the screen.
DTV

standard-definition television (SDTV).
DOLBY Digital
Dolby Digital - Six-channel digital audio standard that is part of the U.S. digital television standard; also called AC-3 or Digital
5.1. The channels consist of front left, front right, front center, surround or rear left, surround or rear right, and a separate
subwoofer
Digital Tuner
A digital tuner serves as the decoder required to receive and display digital broadcasts. It can be included inside TV sets or
via a set-top box.
HDTV
The generally agreed upon definition of HDTV is approximately twice the vertical and horizontal picture resolution of
today’s NTSC TV, which essentially makes the picture twice as sharp. HDTV also has a screen ratio of 16:9 as compared
with most of today’s TV screens, which have a screen ratio of 4:3. HDTV offers reduced motion artifacts (i.e. ghosting, dot
crawl), and offers 5.1 independent channels of CD-quality stereo surround sound, (also referred to as AC-3).
NTSC
National television system committee. The organization that developed the analog television standard currently in use in the
U.S., Canada, and Japan. Now generally used to refer to that standard. The NTSC standard combines blue, red, and green
signals modulated as an AM signal with an FM signal for audio.

In Progressive Scanning all the horizontal scan lines are scanned on to the screen at one time. The Digital TV and HDTV
Standards accept both Interlaced Scan and Progressive Scan broadcast and display methods.
Resolution
