Description
White
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) - It is
the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed,
all-digital audio/video interface. HDMI provides an
interface between any audio/video source, such as a
set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and an
audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital
television (DTV), over a single cable.
Black
DTV Coaxial RF. When used for MPEG2 encoded
bit streams from ATSC broadcast programming, this
input takes advantage of the High Definition content.
-------------------------------------TV Coaxial RF. This is the connection for standard
NTSC TV using antenna or cable.
Best
(analog)
Blue
RGB PC (VGA) – This video input has separate red,
green and blue color components. The signal
carries horizontal and vertical sync information on
the green signal. This is most commonly used for
PC input.
Better
(analog)
Green
and
Purple
Component - The video signal is separated into
three signals, one containing the black-and-white
information and the other two containing the color
information. This enhancement over S-Video takes
advantage of the superior picture provided by
progressive scan DVD players and HDTV formats.

2.8 Connecting the 5.1 Wireless Surround Sound
The JV50P is the first HDTV to giving a full HD experience by providing beautiful High Definition visual
experience and an awesome High Definition 5.1 Surround Sound audible experience.
The front left, right and center channel speakers are fixed below the screen of the JV50P HDTV.
The sub-woofer requires only to be connected to a wall socket and then it receives the sound signal
wirelessly from the HDTV. The sub-woofer cabinet contains the amplifier to power the sub-woofer itself
plus the rear left and right satellite speakers which are connected to it.
As the low frequency sound from the sub-woofer is not directional it can be placed in a convenient
location anywhere in the room. We suggest that you place it on the floor behind the couch where nobody
will trip over the power and speaker cables. On the rear of the sub-woofer cabinet there is a three
pronged IEC power connector labeled AC IN to which you should connect the supplied power cable.
There also two connectors on the rear for the satellite speakers labeled SPEAKER, the red connector
(RS) for the red plug on the right speaker wire and the white
connector (LS) for the white plug on the left speaker wire. The
satellite speaker cabinets have keyhole slots in the rear for easy
mounting on the wall behind the couch, (screws and wall plugs
are not included), or you may choose to place them on speaker
stands, (not included).
Although the wireless system will operate without any setup as
shipped from the factory, it is not dedicated to your HDTV and it
is possible that it would pick-up the audio from your neighbor’s
TV if they are lucky enough and purchase a JV50P as well! We
advise you to dedicate your wireless system to your TV by following the Pairing Procedure to marry to
devices to each other using the button on the rear of the sub-woofer labeled CH-SEARCH, PAIRING.

4.17 Understanding Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
When watching a standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source)
the picture will fill the screen but will be stretched horizontally; people
will look fatter than they are.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.
Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in
widescreen mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the
viewing mode will return to widescreen.

quality issues.
For best image quality, view HD wide screen programs where possible. If HD
content is not available view “Standard Definition” from a digital source. Standard,
analog TV will always be noticeably inferior to HD because your digital flat panel TV
has video that is many times better than old TV’s and so you can see interference
and deficiencies you did not know you had.
You cannot see a picture.
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a grounded electrical outlet.
Make sure that the power button is turned on.
Make sure that the selected input source is connected to a working input source.
If your TV is connected to your computer in RGB or HDMI mode, press any key on
your keyboard to “wake” your computer.
You see a distorted picture or
hear unusual sound.
You may be getting interference from electrical appliances, cars, motorcycles, or
fluorescent lights. If you have not mounted it on the wall, try moving your TV to
another location to see if this is the cause of the problem.
The picture has abnormal
patterns.
Make sure that the input source cable is attached securely and correctly to the back

Make sure that your audio input source cables are connected securely and correctly.
The TV has pixels that are
always dark or colored.
Your Plasma HDTV is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision
technology, however, sometimes some pixels of your Plasma HDTV may not
display. Pixel defects within industry specifications are inherent to this type of
product and do not constitute a defective product.
You see “noise” or “trash” on
the screen.
When your Plasma HDTV’s digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast signal, the
signal is up-converted (increased) to match your TV’s display capabilities. Upconverting can cause noise or trash.
You switch to a different input
and the volume changes.
The TV remembers the volume level from the last time you adjusted it. If the sound
level is higher or lower from another source, then the loudness will change.
You switch to a different input
and the screen size changes.
The TV remembers the viewing mode from the last time you used a particular input
(AV, Component, HDMI and TV).
Tips for High-Definition Users.
The Plasma HDTV is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content.
Best Image Quality will be achieved by the HDMI Input, then YPbPr, then RGB.
However, due to variances in broadcast practices, it is possible some image
distortions can occur.
Tips for Letterbox Content
Users.
Letterboxed (or “Widescreen”) versions of DVD movies are most commonly
formatted for standard 4:3 Televisions. The Plasma HDTV has the capability of
expanding this content so the entire screen is filled at the expense of image
accuracy. To use this function, press the “ZOOM” key on the remote control and
cycle among the available options.

7.2 Glossary – Standard Definitions
Analog TV: Today’s TV system using radio frequency waves to transmit and display pictures and sound.
Aspect Ratio (4x3): Traditional TV “aspect ratio”, that is, the screen’s width as compared to its height.
For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 25 inches wide and 19 inches tall.
Aspect Ratio (16x9): “Wide screen TV” aspect ratio which is more like a movie screen than a traditional
TV. For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 28 inches wide and 16 inches tall.
Digital TV (DTV): Television delivered and displayed using radio frequency waves that contain
information that is digitally encoded for improved quality and efficiency.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV): A better digital television transmission than SDTV with at least 480P,
in a 16x9 or 4x3 display and Dolby digital surround sound. 480P is the quality used by most DVD players.
EDTV provides 300-400,000 pixels.
HDTV Monitor (sometimes called HDTV Ready): A set that can display HDTV programming if you have
a separate HDTV tuner, HD Cable Set-Top Box or HD Satellite Set-Top-Box Receiver.
HDTV Tuner (also decoder, receiver, set-top box): A device capable of receiving and outputting HDTV
signals for display. It may be stand-alone or integrated in the set.
High-Definition Television (HDTV): The best quality picture, wide screen (16x9) display with at least
720 progressively scanned lines (720P) or 1080 interlaced lines (1080i) and Dolby digital surround sound.
HDTV provides 900,000-2.1 million pixels.
Integrated HDTV: An HDTV that has the digital tuner built into the set. It does not need a separate settop box to receive over-the-air DTV signals.
Interlace Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the odd lines first, then
filling the in the even lines (this happens instantaneously).
Plug-and-Play or Digital Cable Ready: A DTV or other device for digital cable consumers that plugs
directly into the cable jack and does not require a separate set-top box. Plug-and-Play TV owners must
obtain a CableCARD from their cable company in order to view scrambled programming services.
Progressive Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the lines consecutively
(progressively).
Standard Definition TV (SDTV): Basic digital television transmission that may be displayed with fewer
than 480 progressively scanned lines (480P) in 16 x 9 or 4 x 3 format. 480 interlaced (480i) is the quality
of today’s analog TV system.
Source: Buying a Digital Television, CEA, HDTV Guide, 2005
Note: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)
and the Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition (CERC) have made a new tip sheet available for digital
television (DTV) retailers to reproduce and distribute to consumers on the sales floor. The file may be
downloaded online at www.dtv.gov. While you’re there, check out the other useful information in the FCC
is making available to consumers interested in learning more about the analog to digital transition.
