CABLE (CATV) / SATELLITE CONNECTIONS
This TV has an extended tuning range and can tune most cable channels without using a Cable TV converter box.
Some Cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels” in which the signal is scrambled. Descrambling these signals
for normal viewing requires the use of a descrambler device which is generally provided by the cable company.
FOR SUBSCRIBERS TO BASIC CABLE TV SERVICE
For basic cable TV service not requiring a converter/descrambler box,
connect the CATV 75 ohm coaxial cable to the VHF/UHF jack on the
rear of the TV.
FOR SUBSCRIBERS TO SCRAMBLED CABLE TV SERVICE OR SATELLITE
If you subscribe to a satellite service or a cable TV service which requires the use of a converter/descrambler box,
connect the incoming 75 ohm coaxial cable to the converter/descrambler or satellite box. Using another 75 ohm cable,
connect the output of the converter/descrambler or satellite box to the antenna jack on the TV. Follow the connections
shown below. Set the TV/VCR to the output channel of the converter/descrambler or satellite box (usually 3 or 4) and
use the converter/descrambler or satellite box to select channels.

PREMIUM CHANNELS
If you subscribe to a satellite service or a cable TV service in which basic channels are unscrambled and premium
channels require the use of a converter/descrambler box, you may wish to use a signal splitter and an A/B switch box
(available from the cable company or an electronic supply store). Follow the connections shown below. With the
switch in the “B” position, you can directly tune any nonscrambled channels on your TV. With the switch in the “A”
position, tune your TV to the output of the converter/descrambler box (usually channel 3 or 4) and use the converter/
descrambler box to tune scrambled channels.

NOTES:
• When selecting Closed Captions, the captioning will be delayed approximately 10 seconds.
• Misspellings or unusual characters may occasionally appear during Closed Captioning. This is normal with Closed
Captioning, especially with live programs. This is because captions are also entered live. These transmissions do
not allow time for editing.
• When Captions are being displayed, on-screen displays, such as volume and mute may not be seen or may
interfere with Closed Captions.
• Some cable systems and copy protection systems may interfere with the Closed Caption signal.
• If using an indoor antenna or if TV reception is very poor, the Closed Caption Decoder may not appear or may
appear with strange characters or misspelled words. In this case, adjust the antenna for better reception or use
an outdoor antenna.

RECEPTION DISTURBANCES
Most types of television interference can be remedied by adjusting the height and position of the VHF/UHF antenna.
Outdoor antennas are recommended for best results if not using cable or a satellite. The most common types of
television interference are shown below. If one of these symptoms appear when the TV is connected to a Cable TV
system, the disturbance may be caused by the local cable company broadcast
IGNITION:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift.
Usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon
lamps, electric drills and other electric appliances.
GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the
direct path and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills or other
objects. Changing the direction or position of the antenna may improve the
reception.
SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the
signal is weak, your picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots.
When the signal is extremely weak, it may be necessary to install an external
antenna to improve the picture.
RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
This interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some
cases, causes loss of contrast in the picture.
PICTURE SIZE VARIATION:
A slight picture size variation is quite normal when you adjust the
CONTRAST or BRIGHTNESS setting.
