A Guide to Digital TV
What is Digital Television?
Digital television (DTV) is a new way of transmitting high quality video and audio to your
TV set. Using DTV, broadcasters can transmit high definition TV (HDTV) images, Dolby digital surround audio, and new services such as multicasting (transmitting more than one program on the same TV channel) and datacasting (providing electronic program guides and
interactive television). Several of these services can be combined into a single digital
broadcast.
Digital Television Services
Digital Picture Quality
DTV programs are transmitted in two different formats. The first is Standard Definition
Television (SDTV) and the second is High Definition Television (HDTV).
SDTV program formats include 480-line interlaced (480i) and 480-line progressive (480p)
video. 480i programs are essentially a digital version of our current analog TV programs,
while the 480p format offers improved image detail over 480i. Some 480p programs are
broadcast in widescreen and are comparable to progressive-scan DVD movies in image
quality.
HDTV program formats include 1080-line interlaced (1080i) and 720-line progressive
(720p). Both HDTV formats are always broadcast in widescreen, and both offer much
higher picture quality than SDTV.
Dolby Surround Sound
With DTV, you can listen to a variety of Dolby digital audio formats from Dolby Surround
2.0 to Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, using your home audio system. Many HDTV programs
are now broadcast with DD 5.1 soundtracks.
Interactive Communications and Datacasting
DTV will allow you to interact with your television; choosing programs from a detailed program guide, ordering products on-line while watching TV, and accessing ancillary data
about a program.

How to View Digital Television
There are three ways to watch DTV. The first is to use an integrated digital TV; one with a
built-in digital television tuner. The second is to connect an external DTV set-top receiver to
a DTV-ready television or monitor. This type of TV or monitor will have wideband component video and stereo audio inputs. You can also watch DTV signals with personal computer (PC) tuner cards and computer monitors.
1. Integrated TVs versus DTV-ready TVs and monitors
The advantage of an integrated DTV set is that it can tune both analog and digital TV channels at the same time. All you'll need to do is add an external antenna and you are ready
to watch DTV.
However, integrated DTV sets are not as common as DTV-ready TVs and monitors. If you
already own a DTV-ready TV with component video inputs, you can enjoy DTV broadcasts
by simply adding a low-cost DTV set-top receiver and antenna.
2. Using your existing analog TV set
Your analog TV set can be used to view down-converted DTV broadcasts by connecting the
DTV set-top receiver to your composite (yellow RCA jack) or S-video (black circular jack)
AV inputs, as well as connecting stereo audio inputs. While the picture quality won't be as
good as you'd see on a DTV-ready TV set, it will be as good or slightly better than analog
TV broadcasts.
3. Using a personal computer and monitor
There are plug-in cards available that will receive and display DTV broadcasts on your
computer monitor. In addition, many computer monitors will display one or more of the
DTV program formats directly. The most compatible format is 480p, which is similar to the
VGA (640x480 pixel) computer display standard. You may be able to watch DTV broadcasts by connecting a computer monitor to the 15-pin jack on the rear of the set-top DTV
receiver.
NOTE
This television receiver supports the copy protection system regulated by DTLA (Digital Transmission
Licensing Administrator). It should be noted that copy protected content may not be viewable
depending on particular connections. For details, please see page 1.11.

Q&A
1. Is the antenna I use for existing TV reception good enough for DTV?
Over-the-air (OTA) digital TV broadcasting uses the same channels as analog TV and
works well with many existing TV antennas. However, DTV broadcast channel assignments
are different than analog channels. You should find out whether your local DTV broadcasts
are on VHF (channels 2-13) or UHF (channels 14-69) to see if you need a different antenna.
If your DTV channels are on UHF and you already get good UHF reception, your present
antenna may work fine. The same holds true for VHF DTV reception. Note that in some
markets, both VHF and UHF channels are used for DTV broadcasts.
You can find out the latest DTV channel assignments for your area by browsing selected
Internet web sites such as www.titantv.com , www.10000watts.com, and www.fcc.gov.
2. How difficult is it to receive DTV signals indoors?
This depends on whether your local DTV stations are running full power or not and how
close your location is to the transmission tower. DTV receivers do not require as much signal as analog TV receivers to produce high-quality images and sound.
Once the DTV signal level exceeds a certain threshold at the receiver, the digital video and
audio data is decoded at the same quality it was originally encoded for broadcast. This is
a big advantage for DTV over analog TV - there is no noise, ghosting, static, or scratchy
audio.
3. How can I connect an antenna in my townhouse, co-operative apartment, condominium,
or apartment?
The Federal Communications Commission's OTARD Rule (part of the Telecommunications
Act of 1996) allows residents of condominiums, townhouse, or members of neighborhood
associations to put up outside antennas for reception of broadcast TV signals as long as
those antennas are not located in common areas and are no more than 12' in height.
Residents of rental units (apartments, etc) are not covered by the OTARD rules and will
have to use indoor antennas to receive DTV broadcasts. It is possible that the landlord of
an apartment complex can provide broadcast DTV signals via a master TV antenna system
to each apartment.

Q&A
4. Can I connect my DTV set-top receiver to my cable TV service?
Cable TV systems use a different method for transmitting digital TV programs that is currently incompatible with broadcast DTV set-top receivers. So you will still need to use an outdoor or indoor antenna to receive OTA broadcast DTV programs.
The good news is that you won't have to pay a monthly or per-program charge to watch
OTA DTV and HDTV programs. They're free, unlike subscription satellite TV or premium
cable TV. All you need is an antenna and a DTV set-top receiver to enjoy clear, sharp
widescreen images and high-quality audio.

Troubleshooting
If you have difficulty with your digital TV set-top receiver, there are several possibilities you
should investigate before calling a service technician.
Problem
Possible Solution
Intermittent signal, or no signal
at all.
Try another channel.
Make sure the antenna is connected.
If a powered antenna, turn the power boost on.
You may also want to rotate the antenna for a
stronger signal, using the tri-state LED indicator on
the front of your tuner as a guide.
Make sure D-VHS connections are correct.
Check the resolution select switch to make sure an
appropriate mode is selected.
Poor sound quality, or no
sound.
Make sure audio connections are correct.
Try another channel - sometimes broadcasters
have problems with DTV audio encoding.
Make sure the MUTE button on your TV is off.
Try both analog and digital (coaxial, optical)
audio connections.
No color, or wrong colors.
Make sure you have connected the DTV set-top
receiver correctly to your DTV-ready or analog TV
set.
For a three-wire component connection, match the
red, green, and blue cables from the set-top
receiver to your TV.
Remote control doesn’t work
correctly.
Make sure you have fresh batteries installed the
correct way in your remote. Also, select the correct
remote command mode to DTV or STB.
The DTV set-top receiver won’t
turn on.
Make sure the receiver’s power plug is installed
and that the AC outlet is working.
Check the batteries in the remote control to make
sure they are fresh and installed correctly.

Problem
Possible Solution
The D-VHS device connected to
the FireWire jack doesn’t work
correctly.
If you view a D-VHS tape with copy protection
technology, and then a D-VHS tape without copy
protection technology after viewing an analog TV
program, the screen might turn black. In that case,
stop the D-VHS device and re-play it.
If you rewind the D-VHS device in order to move
to the start portion of the tape during playback
and re-play it, the D-VHS device might not work
correctly. In that case, stop the D-VHS device and
re-play it, or turn the power off and on again.
