The lightning symbol in the triangle is used to alert you to the presence of dangerous voltage inside the
receiver that may be sufficient to constitute a risk of electric shock to anyone opening the case. It is also
used to indicate improper installation or handling of the receiver that could damage the electrical system
in the receiver or in other equipment attached to the receiver.
The exclamation point in the triangle is used to alert you to important operating and maintenance
instructions. Failure to follow these instructions could result in injury to you or damage to the receiver.
Be careful with electricity:
Power outlet: To prevent electric shock, be sure the electrical plug used on the receiver’s power
cord matches the electrical outlet used to supply power to the receiver. Only connect the power
cord to a power source that operates between 120VAC, 60Hz.
Power cord: Be sure the power cord is routed so that it will not be stepped on or pinched by heavy
items.
Power overloading: Avoid overloading electrical outlets or extension cords which otherwise could
result in electric shock or fire.
Lightning: For protection from lightning or when the receiver is left unattended for a long period,
disconnect it from the power source.
Protect other equipment: Unplug the receiver before connecting any other equipment, especially
the TV antenna. Connect all equipment to the receiver before plugging in any power cords to the
power source.
Power line: Be sure your TV antenna is not located near overhead power lines, or where it might fall
into any power lines. Also be careful to avoid touching any such power lines when installing the TV
antenna.
Antenna Grounding: Be sure that the antenna is grounded to provide protection from lightning and
build-up of static electricity.

Also follow these precautions:
Ventilation: Do not block the ventilation slots on the receiver or place any heavy object on top of it.
Blocking the air flow could damage the receiver. Arrange components so that air can flow freely
around the receiver. Ensure that there is adequate ventilation if the receiver is placed in a stand.
Put the receiver in a properly ventilated area, away from direct sunlight or any source of heat.
Overheating: Avoid stacking the receiver on top of a hot component such as a power amplifier.
Risk of Fire: Do not place the receiver on top of any easily combustible material, such as carpet or
fabric.
Proper Connections: Be sure all cables and equipment are connected to the receiver as described
in this manual.
Object Entry: To avoid electric shock, never stick anything in the slots on the case or remove the
cover.
Water Exposure: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose the receiver to rain or
moisture.
Keep the tuner out of the reach of children or it may fall, causing injury or damage to the
tuner.
Always disconnect the power cord from the power outlet when you are not using the tuner.
This reduces your risk of electric shocks or fire.
Always turn off the tuner, disconnect it from the power outlet, and unplug all other cables
from before moving the tuner. This reduces your risk of electric shocks or fire.

Introduction
Digital OFF AIR Television Reception
Traditional analog television sets are able to tune in free off air programming like local NBC, ABC, and
CBS channels using a standard antenna and a built in NTSC Tuner. In fringe areas, reception becomes
poor and channels show up with poor coloring, ghosting, or with snow or static.
In 2002, local channels began broadcasting a free Digital Signal as well as an analog signal. Using a
high quality antenna and an ATSC tuner, you will be able to receive digital broadcasts. The digital signal
provides you with DVD quality picture and sound, and will never show static or poor picture. Digital
reception is “All or Nothing” reception, much like digital cell phone reception or satellite television.
Digital Television is also your source for free High Definition programming. If a program shown on a
digital channel is broadcast in High Definition, your HD capable television set will display high quality
video and Dolby Digital® audio.
Your Winegard Digital Receiver has a built in ATSC tuner to decode Digital OFF AIR signals and display
them on your television.
How Do I Receive Digital Channels?
To receive free, over the air Digital programming, connect your Winegard Digital Receiver to your
television. You must then scan in the digital channels in your area using the receiver.
You are probably familiar with the local channels in your area and what channel they are broadcast on.
For example, the local ABC affiliate in Davenport, IA is WQAD, broadcast on Channel 8. This is an
ANALOG channel. To receive the channel, simply point your antenna towards the station’s origin and
tune your analog television set to channel 8.
WQAD is also broadcasting a DIGITAL signal. There are two important things to know about receiving
a Digital broadcast:
1. The Digital signal being broadcast is not on the same channel as the analog broadcast. Back to
our example, WQAD broadcasts an analog signal on Channel 8, a VHF frequency. WQAD
broadcasts the DIGITAL signal on Channel 38, a UHF frequency. This means that to receive
the Digital broadcast, you must have a UHF capable antenna and orient it to the station’s origin.
2. Once you have scanned your Digital channel into memory on your digital receiver, the Digital
channel will appear on your television as the analog channel number, plus a “-“ or “.” and a
number 1-6. In our example, WQAD will appear as channels 8-1, 8-2, and 8-3.
Digital channels are “multicast”, meaning up to six separate channels may be shown on one digital
channel.
In our example, Channel 8-1 is the standard digital channel showing regular ABC
programming. Channel 8-2 is a 24 hour news broadcast and channel 8-3 is a 24 hour weather
broadcast. If you are able to tune in your digital channel, all available multicasted channels will be
available. Available channels will vary by your local market.
How do I Receive High Definition Programming?
To receive free, over the air High Definition programming, connect your Winegard Digital Receiver to an
HD Capable Television. Scan in your available digital channels, and tune to your desired channel. If
the program being broadcast is in High Definition, you will automatically display the High Definition feed.
HD programming is shown in Widescreen, 16:9 format on your television and will have outstanding
picture and audio quality. When the program being shown ends or is not being shown in HD (such as at
commercial breaks), you may notice black bars on either side of the picture.
To determine what channel your local Affiliates are broadcasting digital channels on, consult the
“Winegard Traveling Guide” (sold separately) or consult www.antennaweb.org.

Glossary
* Aspect Ratio: It is the ratio of the width of the screen to the height. The two relevant digital TV
formats are 16:9 (wide screen) or 4:3 (the traditional screen ratio). 16:9 is more ergonomically suitable
for human's eye.
* Bandwidth: Frequency range allows for carrying a certain radio signal. The speed of data
transmission depends on the available bandwidth of the transmission channel.
* Coaxial Cable: A type of cable used to transmit high frequency signals e.g. from the VHF/UHF
antenna to the terrestrial Digital TV receiver.
* Composite Video: There are three elements of the video system: First - the " active video" which
means the picture to be displayed on the screen and its associated colors. Second - the " sync" decides
where to place each pixel on the screen. Third - the " blanking" tells the display when to turn off the
electron beam so no retrace across the screen. These three elements combined together is called "
composite video" when connecting to a display through connectors.
* ATSC: Abbreviation for "Advanced Television System Committee". The Advanced Television Systems
Committee, Inc. (ATSC), is an international, non-profit membership organization developing voluntary
standards for the entire spectrum of advanced television systems. They stipulate the standard for
terrestrial Digital TV broadcast which is also called ATSC.
* EPG: Abbreviation for "Electronic Program Guide". A software that enable viewers to navigate through
the large number of channels offered by digital TV broadcaster and select the desired services.
* Frequency: The property of a signal which is measured in cycles per second (=Hertz).
* Letterbox: The picture with aspect ratio 16:9 in a 4:3 TV screen with blank lines on top and bottom.
It is the means to watch a wide screen TV program on a 4:3 TV screen.
* Megahertz (MHz): Millions of cycles per second, which describes frequencies of radio wave or
electric current.
* OSD: Abbreviation of "On Screen Display", used in digital set top box. OSD is comprised of a main
menu and many submenus with lots of options of functions inside.
* NTSC: Stands for "National Television System Committee”, the U.S. video standard which includes the

channel width.
* PID: Stands for "Packet Identifier". It is a code used for identifying video, audio PCR and other
elements that form a particular service in the transport stream.
* RF Channel: Radiated Frequency Channel, one RF channel may carry 4 to 6 sub-channels
2-1,2-2,2-3.etc.
* S-Video (also called Y/C): The standard for the way a video signal is carried on the cable. Y
represents brightness and C represents color. S-Video cables have separate wires for the color and
brightness so it offers a better picture quality than the composite video.
* VHF: Stands for "Very High Frequency", starts from 30 to 300 MHz corresponding to
channels 2-13,including Bands I, II and III.
* UHF: Stands for "Ultra High Frequency", starts from 300 to 3000 MHz corresponding to channels 14-69,
including Bands IV and V.
* Y/Pb/Pr: Component Video Output. It is better than S-Video and Composite Video output in terms of
picture quality. Y/Pb/Pr is the standard HDTV connector.
