Dear Customer,
Audiovox Corporation would like to thank you for choosing this color television
receiver. It incorporates a host of features designed to give you excellent performance for
many years to come.
We realize that you’re eager to turn it on and begin enjoying the high quality pictures
it delivers just as quickly as possible, but we ask you to take a few minutes to read the
instructions in this booklet to familiarize yourself with the receiver, it’s functions and some
features which may be new to you. If you follow the instructions, this unit should give you
many years of viewing pleasure.
If for any reason it does not, we want to hear about it. Please write or call us at the
address/phone # above. Audiovox always welcomes comments and suggestions on this or
any of our products.
On the other hand, when you discover the enjoyment, reliability, and ease of use that
is built into it, we hope that you will tell all of your friends, and consider Audiovox when you
make your next purchase of home entertainment equipment.
In addition to TV receivers, Audiovox produces a full line of audiovisual products built
to the same high design, engineering, and manufacturing standards of this unit.
Here are a few tips that will keep your TV receiver looking great and performing for
years to come:
• Avoid putting it in excessively hot locations. Damage to the cabinet or premature
transistor failures can result.
• There are ventilation holes in the bottom and rear of the cabinet. Make sure they remain
unobstructed. Do not place receiver on top of a thick cloth.
• If you don’t plan to use the receiver for several days, it’s a good idea to unplug it from the
power outlet.
• Many common household cleaning agents, sprays, solvents, and polishes will cause
permanent damage to the cabinet. The best cleaning agents are mild soap and a damp
cloth.
Again, thank you for choosing this Audiovox product. We have employed advanced
engineering techniques in it’s design, and manufactured it in one of the world’s most upto-date production facilities. The result is a TV receiver that we know will be as proud to

extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the TV receiver to its normal
operation.
e) If the television equipment has been dropped
or the cabinet has been damaged.
f) When the television equipment exhibits a
distinct change in performance this indicates

Connecting an Antenna or cable to Your TV
Your TV will provide you with the best performance if you connect it to an external
antenna or cable system. Follow the directions below to 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. The
antenna terminal is a silver metal post partially surrounded by two plastic tabs. For help in
locating the antenna terminal, see “Your TV’s Back Panel” on page 4.
Connecting an 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 300Ω twin leads, you must use a 300Ω /75Ω adapter
(available at your local electronics store). 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.
Chapter 2: Connecting an Antenna or Cable to your TV-7
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 for UHF signals.
If your antenna system has both a coaxial lead and twin 300Ω 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 the combiner onto the antenna termnial on the back of your
TV.
If your antenna system has two sets of twin 300Ω 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 the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
Connecting a cable system
If your cable set-up is not described below, please contact your cable company for more
information.
If your cable system does not require the use of a
cable box, simply press or screw the incoming
cable onto the antenna terminal on the back of
your TV.
8- Chapter 2: Connecting an Antenna or Cable to your TV
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 out terminal on your
TV. You will need to keep your TV tuned to channel 3 or 4 and change channels
using your 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 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 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 roof top or satellite antenna. You do not need to
disconnect your TV from a cable system.
