TIPS ON REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS
• S-VIDEO connections are provided for high performance laserdisc
players, VCRs etc. that have this feature. Use these connections in
place of the standard video connection if your device has S-Video.
• If your device has only one audio output (mono sound), connect it to the left audio jack on the television.
• Refer to the operating guide of your other electronic equipment
for additional information on connecting your hook-up cables.
• A single VCR can be used for VCR #1 and VCR #2, but note that
a VCR cannot record its own video or line output. Refer to your
VCR operating guide for more information on line input-output
connections.
• You may use VIDEO or S-VIDEO inputs to connect to Input 1,
Input 2, or Input 5 but only one of these may be used at a time.
• Connect only 1 component (VCR, DVD player, camcorder, etc.) to
each input set of jacks.
• COMPONENT: Y-PB PR connections are provided for high perfor-
mance components, such as DVD players. Use these connections in
place of the standard video connection if your device has this feature. When using the Y-PB PR input jacks, Input 3 and 4 will be
viewed as a split PIP Sub-Picture.
• Your component outputs may be labeled Y, B-Y, and R-Y. In this
case, connect the components B-Y output to the TV’s PB input and
the components R-Y output to the TV’s PR input.
• Your component outputs may be labeled Y-CB CR. In this case,
connect the components CB output to the TV’s PB input and the
components CR output to the TV’s PR input.
• You may use standard video signal for INPUTS 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
• For component video, you may use INPUTS 3 and 4 only.
• It may be necessary to adjust TINT to obtain optimum picture
quality when using the Y-PB PR inputs. (See Video menu.)
• To ensure against copyright infringement, the MONITOR OUT
output will be abnormal, when using the Y-PB PR jacks.
NOTES:
1. Your component outputs may be labeled Y, B-Y, and R-Y. In this
case, connect the components B-Y output to the TV’s P B input
and the components R-Y output to the TV’s P R input.
2. Your component outputs may be labeled Y-CB CR. In this case,
connect the component CB output to the TV’s PB input and the
component CR output to the TV’s PR input.
3. It may be necessary to adjust TINT to obtain optimum picture
quality when using the Y-PB PR inputs. (See Video menu.)
4. To ensure no copyright infringement, the MONITOR OUT output
will be abnormal, if using the Y-PB PR jacks.
5. When using the Y-PB PR jacks, TV will automatically change to
SPLIT PIP mode. When you have Picture-on-Picture on and are
viewing a Y-PB PR input, only SPLIT mode is possible.
6. Inputs 3 and 4 (Y-VIDEO) can be used for standard video input.

Hook Up Cable Box
Some cable services require the use of a cable box to decode premium channels and
pay-per-view. Using the “To Cable Box” to Decoder option, and programming your
remote, you can connect your cable box so that you only need your MBR remote to
control all the channels. By connecting cable directly to your Entertainment Machine,
then running it out to the cable box and back, you make the cable box another source
to choose from in the Source selection on your remote.
1
Locate the Antenna/Cable 1 jack on
the back of your TV. Connect the
cable that runs from the wall directly to the jack. Now find the To Cable
Box jack.
2
Connect the cable from this jack to
the Input jack on the back of your
cable box.

Parental Control Overview
Overview
Parental Control offers the user a wide variety of options and settings that restrict or “block” the programming that can
appear on the TV. Parental Control allows the user the capability of defining which program rating they consider acceptable, to the younger or more sensitive viewer. It can be preset and turned either on or off by the user who specifies the
secret 4-number code, the password. Viewer ratings are specified for both TV and the motion picture industry; both rating
systems should be used for complete coverage. These ratings are based mainly on children’s ages. See the Parental Control
menu and submenus example on the next page.
Things to Consider before Setting Up Parental Control View or Block options
• Determine which rating you consider acceptable to the viewer. (For example, if you choose TV-PG, all more restrictive
ratings will be automatically blocked; the viewer will not be able to see: TV-PG, TV-14, or TV-MA rated programming.)
• Do you want to block individual channels or input sources? (Blocks the signal sent by the equipment, such as a VCR,
connected to the TV Audio/Video input jacks.) Or leave unblocked, then choose allowable ratings.
• Lock the front panel controls so they cannot be used with the Front Panel Lock option.
• Select a secret password; in the Set Password option. Use the number keys on the remote. Don’t forget the password, it
is the only way you can access the Parental Control menu and change rating selections, or turn Parental Control off.

Maintenance
Routine TV cabinet and screen cleaning
Careful and regular cleaning can extend the the useful service life of the TV. Be sure to turn the power off and pull out
the plug before you begin any cleaning.
Screen Cleaning
1. Here’s a great way to keep the dust off the screen for a while. Wet a soft cloth in a mixture of lukewarm water
and a little fabric softener or dish washing detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s almost dry, and then use it to
wipe the screen.
2. Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before turning the TV on.
Cabinet Cleaning
1. Use a soft cloth with a mild soap solution to wipe the cabinet. (Don’t use any harsh, industrial strength variety
of cleaner.)
2. Rinse the cloth and wipe the cabinet again.
3. Let the cabinet air-dry before turning the TV on.
Wood Cabinet
Use a quality wood cleaner and polish. This will protect the TV from dirt and dust, as well as keep the cabinet
looking new.
Extended Absence
If you leave your TV dormant (Off) for a long time (such as a vacation), it’s a good idea to unplug the power cord
to protect against possible damage from lightning or power surges. If you use an off-air antenna, you may also
want to disconnect it from the back of your TV before leaving.
If you unplug the TV, you may have to reset the clock using the Clock Set menu described earlier. See
page 27.
