Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV
Connecting Rod Antenna (included)
Install Rod Antenna on top rear of cabinet and connect other end to the antenna terminal.
Your TV will provide you with the best performance if you connect it to an external antenna or cable system. Follow the directions below make this connection. Please note that you will normally only have to
make one of the connections shown below, not all of them.
All connections will be made to the antenna terminal on the back of your TV. For help in locating the
antenna terminal, see “Your TV's Back Panel” on page 5.
Connecting an External Antenna
If your antenna ends in a single coaxial lead, simply
press or screw the cable onto the antenna terminal on the
back of your TV.
If your antenna ends in a pair of 300 ohm twin leads, you must use a 300-ohm/75-ohm
adapter(included). Place the leads underneath the screws on the adapter, tighten the screws, then press the
adapter onto the antenna terminal on the back of the TV.
8
Chapter 2 : Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV
Antennas with two sets of leads
You might have two sets of leads from your antenna system, especially if you have one antenna for VHF
signals and one antenna for UHF signals.
If your antenna system has both a coaxial lead and twin 300-ohm leads, you must obtain a combiner (available at your local electronics store). Press or screw the coaxial lead onto the combiner; place
the twin leads underneath the screws on the combiner and tighten the screws. Press the cable from combiner onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
If your antenna system has two sets of twin 300-ohm leads, you must obtain a combiner (available
at your local electronics store). Place one set of twin leads underneath the screws on the combiner and
tighten the screws. Do the same with the other set of twin leads. Press the cable from the combiner onto
antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
Chapter 2 : Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV
9
If your cable system requires you to use a converter box for all channels, connect the incoming
cable to the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another cable between the OUT terminal on
the converter box and the antenna terminal on the TV. You will need to keep your TV tuned to
channel 3 or 4 and change channels using the converter box.
If your cable system only requires you to use a converter box for some channels (i. e. pay-TV
channels),follow these steps: Find the primary incoming coaxial cable. Plug this cable into a splitter
(available at your local electronics store). Connect one coaxial cable between one OUT terminal on
the splitter and the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another coaxial cable between the
other OUT terminal on the splitter and the B-IN terminal on an A/B switch (available at your local
electronics store.) Connect a third coaxial cable between the OUT terminal on the converter box and
the A-IN terminal on the A/B switch. Finally, connect a coaxial cable between the OUT terminal on
the A/B switch and the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
When the A/B switch is in the A position, you need to change channels on the converter box (and
your TV should be tuned to channel 3 or 4); when the A/B switch is in the B position you can
change channels on the TV.
Connecting Other Pieces of Equipment
You may want to connect a VCR, laser disc player, satellite receiver, or another type of equipment
to your TV. We recommend that you follow the instructions included with the piece of equipment
you wish to connect.
Safety Note
If you plan on being away from your home for an extended period of time, or if a thunderstorm is
approaching, you should unplug your television, and you may wish to disconnect your TV from a
rooftop or satellite antenna. You do not need to disconnect your TV from a cable system.
