Chapter 1: Connections & Setup

Things to Consider Before You Connect

Protect Against Power Surges

• Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.

• Turn off the TV and/or component before you connect or disconnect any cables.

• Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safety Instructions on page 1.

Protect Components from Overheating

• Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.

• Don’t stack components.

• When you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.

• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow around other components.

Position Cables Properly to Avoid Audio Interference

• Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.

• If you place components above the TV, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV instead of straight down the middle of the TV.

• If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin lead cables away from audio/video cables.

Important Stand and Base Safety Information

Choose the location for your TV carefully. Place the TV on a stand or base that is of adequate size and strength to prevent the TV from being accidentally tipped over, pushed off, or pulled off. This could cause personal injury and/or damage the TV. Refer to the Important Safety Instructions on page 1.

Use Indirect Light

Don’t place the TV where sunlight or room lighting will be directed toward the screen. Use soft or indirect lighting.

Cables Needed to Connect Components to Your TV

Connections & Setup

TV/DVD+ A/V Receiver or Speakers

These are two different ways your TV/DVD uses a component to hear audio.

1. Connect audio cables to either the FIXED or VARIABLE AUDIO L and R OUTPUT jacks and to the Audio Inputs on the A/V receiver.

• FIXED provides fixed-level audio output from the TV/DVD. This audio output is ideal for connecting to an A/V receiver that has its own volume control.

• VARIABLE provides variable-level audio output. Volume levels can be controlled by the volume controls on the TV/DVD and TV remote control.

-OR-

2. Use speaker wire to connect the TV/DVD to external speakers.

• The EXT/INT switch beside the jacks let you turn the TV/DVD’s internal speakers on or off. If you connect external speakers, slide the switch to EXT so the audio is sent to the external speakers only. Choosing INT sends the audio to the TV/DVD’s speakers only.

Note: The external speaker rating is 8 ohms with 15 watts power handling capabilities.

DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT Lets you connect a Dolby Digital receiver to your TV/DVD, if your receiver has an optical input. Use an optical cable (or SPDIF cable) to connect your TV/DVD to the receiver for theatre-quality sound. Go to page 30 for more information on digital audio.

Note: This TV/DVD’s OPTICAL DIGITAL OUT jack fully complies with the international standard governing this type of jack

(IEC958), and is designed for connection to a Dolby Digital (AC-3 ® or PCM) receiver or Dolby Digital (AC-3 or PCM) decoder. Older equipment, some of which is not fully compliant with IEC958, may not be compatible with the Dolby Digital bitstream. Such a connection using anything other than Dolby Digital AC-3 or PCM receiver or decoder could create a high noise level, causing damage to headphones or speakers.

DVI-HDTV Input Lets you connect an HD receiver with a DVI output.

• DVI (Digital Visual Interface) Provides an uncompressed, digital video interface developed for highbandwidth digital connection. It supports the overlay of high-resolution graphics needed by some electronic program guide navigation and other interactive services. DVI, when combined with HDCP (High bandwidth Digital Content Protection) technology, creates a protected digital connection. The signal speed of the DVI connection is 1080i for HDTV at a rate of 1.78 Gigabits per second.

• L/MONO (Audio) Provides left audio connection when using the DVI jack. The left audio connector is usually white.

• R (Audio) Provides right audio connection when using the DVI jack. The right audio connector is usually red.

Note: Remember to connect the left and right audio cables because the DVI cable carries only the picture signal, not the sound.

COMPONENT INPUTS Lets you connect a component video source, such as a DVD player.

TV

DVD VCR2 AUX SAT•CABLE

You’ll use these buttons when you program the remote.

Important: The remote may not be compatible with all models of all brands of components. It also may not operate all functions of the remote that came with your component.

Tip

To stop the automatic code search without programming any components, press and hold CLEAR until the indicator on the remote turns off.

Programming the Remote to Operate Other Components

The universal remote can be programmed to operate most brands of remote controllable components. The remote is already programmed to operate most RCA, GE, and Proscan components.

Also, the AUX button can be programmed to operate most brands of an additional remote-controllable component.

Note: The TV button can’t be programmed on this remote.

Find Out If You Need to Program the Remote

To determine whether the universal remote needs to be programmed for your component, turn the component ON. For example, to program the remote for a VCR, turn on the VCR. Point the remote at the

VCR, and press the VCR1 button. Then press ON•OFF or CH + (channel up) or CH – (channel down) to see if the VCR responds to the remote commands. If the component does not respond, the remote needs to be programmed.

Programming the Remote

There are two ways to program the remote control:

• automatic code search

• direct entry

Using Automatic Code Search

The following instructions can be used to program the remote to operate each of your components. If you want to stop the automatic code search without programming any of your components, press CLEAR until the indicator on the remote turns off.

1. Turn on the component you want to operate (VCR, DVD player, etc.)

2. Press and hold the component button you want to program (VCR1, DVD, etc.). While holding the component button, press and hold ON•OFF until the indicator on the remote turns on, then release both buttons.

3. Point the remote at the component. Press and release PLAY, then wait 5 seconds or until the indicator on the remote stops flashing.

At this point the remote is searching for the correct code to program. If, after 5 seconds, the component you want to operate does not turn off, press PLAY again to tell the remote to search the next set of codes.

Continue pressing PLAY until the component turns off or you have searched through all of the codes.

There are 20 total sets of codes. If the component does not turn off after pressing PLAY 20 times, then the remote can’t be programmed to operate that component.

If the component you want to control does turn off:

1. Press and release REVERSE, then wait 2 seconds. Repeat this step until the device turns back ON.

2. To finish, press and hold STOP until the indicator on the remote turns off.

Using the Remote Control

Important

You must continue pressing the component button while you enter the code.

Let’s say you have a Zenith VCR. To program the universal remote to operate the VCR, you would:

Press and hold the VCR1 button while you enter the first code listed for Zenith in the VCR

Codes column.

Release the VCR1 button. Press ON•OFF to see if the VCR responds. If it doesn’t, follow the same steps, but enter the second code for

Zenith VCRs instead of the first.

Note

Some of the remote’s buttons might operate differently for other components, especially when you’re using another component’s menu system.

Using Direct Entry

1. Turn on the component to be programmed.

2. Look up the brand and code number(s) for the component on the code list in this section.

3. Point the remote at the component.

4. Press and hold the component button you want to program on the remote.

5. Enter the 4-digit code from the remote control code list on the following pages. If the indicator flashes, you have either entered an invalid code or the button isn’t programmable.

6. Release the component button, and then press ON•OFF to see if the component responds to the command. If it doesn’t, try pressing the component button and then ON•OFF again.

• If you get no response, repeat these steps using the next code listed for your brand, until the component responds to the remote commands.

• If you try all the codes for your component brand and none work, try the automatic code search method. If automatic code search doesn’t find the code, the remote is not compatible with your component.

How to Use the Remote After You’ve Programmed It

Because this universal remote can control several different components (TV, DVD, VCR, satellite receiver, etc.) it uses operational modes triggered by the component buttons. For example, if you want the remote to control the TV, you would press the TV button to put the remote into TV mode before you could control the TV.

1. Press the appropriate component button (DVD, TV, VCR1, VCR2, SAT•CABLE, AUX) to set the remote to control the component.

2. Press ON•OFF to turn the component ON or OFF.

3. Use the remote buttons that apply to that component.

Notes: The remote may not be compatible with all brands and models of components. It also may not operate all functions of the remote that came with your component.

If you keep pressing buttons and nothing happens, the remote is probably in the wrong mode. You must press the component button that matches the component you want to operate (i.e., if you want to operate the VCR, press VCR1 on the remote control to put the remote in VCR mode.)

Chapter 3: Playing DVDs

Regional Coding

Both the TV/DVD unit and the discs are coded by region. These regional codes must match in order for the disc to play. If the codes don’t match, the disc won’t play. This unit’s code is region 1.

Using Different Menus

Each disc is programmed with different features. There are three separate menu paths that you can use to access features:

The Disc menu – The disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD’s menu system. The contents of each disc menu vary according to how the disc was authored and what features are included. The disc menu is turned on and off (while the disc is playing) with the DISC MENU button on the remote.

The DVD’s Info Display – The Info Display appears as icons across the top of the screen when a disc is playing. It can only be accessed while you are playing a disc. It’s turned on and off with the INFO button on the remote.

The DVD’s menu system – The DVD’s menu system is accessed only when a disc isn’t playing. It appears when the STOP button is pressed.

A feature only works if the disc was programmed with that feature. If a menu item is “grayed out” it means that item isn’t available.

Loading and Playing Discs

Your TV/DVD unit plays DVD discs, Video CD discs, Audio CD discs, MP3 discs and CD-R discs. Before you load a disc, make sure that it is compatible with the player. The following discs CANNOT be used with this player:

• Laserdiscs, CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), CD-RW, DVD-ROM, Discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL or SECAM)

Ca n't

Catch U p

This is an example of a one-sided disc.

h tc

Up

(Widescreen

Ve

This is an example of a 2-sided disc. The title is in the center.

To Load and Play a Disc

To put the TV/DVD in DVD mode and play a disc, press the DVD button on the remote control.

1. Press the OPEN•CLOSE button on the front of the TV/DVD. The disc tray opens.

2. Place a disc gently into the tray with the disc’s label facing up (double-sided discs have content on both sides, so you can place either side up).

3. Press the OPEN•CLOSE or PLAY button. The disc tray closes.

The TV/DVD reads the disc’s table of contents, and then one of three things happens depending on how the disc was programmed:

• The disc starts playing.

• The disc menu appears on the screen. One of the options will start disc play. Highlight that option and press OK on the remote.

• The DVD’s main menu appears on the screen. Highlight the Play option and press OK on the remote.

When you stop playing a disc, the unit remembers where you stopped. When you start playing the disc again, the unit picks up where you left off unless the disc is removed, the unit is unplugged, or you pressed the STOP button twice.

Using a Disc Menu

A disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD’s menu system and on-screen Info Display. The disc menu might only contain a list of the titles and chapters, or it may allow you to change features such as language and playback settings.

The content and operation of disc menus vary from disc to disc.

Using the On-Screen Info Display

The on-screen Info Display contains many playback features. To see the Info Display, press the INFO button on the remote while a disc is playing. The

Info Display appears across the top of the screen. Each feature is illustrated with an icon. Use the left/right arrow buttons on the remote to move through the different icons in the Info Display.

When an icon is highlighted, use the up/down arrow buttons on the remote to scroll through the choices displayed in the text box under the icons.

Remember, you can only access the Info Display when you’re playing a disc. Also, the Info Display features are only available if the disc was created with that particular feature (i.e., if you select the Subtitle icon, you won’t be able to change the subtitle language unless the author of the disc created the disc with subtitles).

The invalid symbol appears on the screen when you press a button that doesn’t have any function. If one of the icons is “grayed out,” that Info

Display feature isn’t available for the disc you’re playing. To make the Info Display disappear from the screen, press INFO on the remote.

Time Display

This feature displays the audio/video time. For DVD discs, the time displayed refers to the current title time. For Audio CDs, it refers to the current track time.

For DVD video discs, the Time Display also acts as a Time Search feature. This lets you go to a particular scene in a movie by entering the time that scene is played. To use Time Search:

Press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display. Highlight the Time Display and enter the elapsed time of the scene you wish to go to. For example, enter 01:12:00 to go to the scene that plays at 1 hour and twelve minutes into the movie.

When you’ve entered the time, press OK on the remote.

Selecting a Title

Some discs contain more than one title. Each title is divided into chapters. To select a title:

1. While the disc is playing, press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display.

2. If the Title icon on the Info Display isn’t highlighted, use the left/right arrow buttons to highlight it.

3. Use the number button(s) on the remote to enter the title number or press the up/down arrow buttons to go to the next/previous title.

4. Press OK on the remote when the title you want to play appears in the text window.

Note: Some discs only have one title.

Selecting a Chapter

Because DVD discs use digital technology, a title can be divided into individual chapters (similar to tracks on a CD). You can skip to a specific chapter by using the Chapter feature in the Info Display.

1. While a disc is playing, press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display.

2. Press the left/right arrow buttons to highlight the Chapter icon.

3. Use the number buttons on the remote to enter the number of the chapter you want to play or press the up/down arrow buttons to go to the next/previous title.

4. Press OK on the remote.

Notes: The Chapter feature won’t work if the disc isn’t formatted with separate chapters.

Press CH + or CH – on the remote to highlight the Chapter icon. Then press CH + to advance to the next chapter or CH – to go to the preceding chapter.

Selecting Subtitles

By default, subtitles are off. To turn subtitles on and change the Subtitle language while you’re watching a DVD disc:

1. While the disc is playing, press INFO on the remote.

2. Press the left/right arrow buttons to highlight the Subtitle icon.

3. If subtitles are off, press OK to turn them on.

4. Use the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the subtitle languages that are available on the disc. If subtitles aren’t available, the text in the text box will read Subtitles: Not Available. If subtitles are available, the language currently showing in the text box is the active selection. The subtitles will be shown in that language.

5. To make the Info Display disappear, press the INFO button on the remote.

Notes: Changing the subtitle language with the Info Display will only affect the disc currently being played. When the disc is removed or the unit is turned off, the subtitle language will revert to the language setting specified through the DVD’s main menu.

The subtitle language can also be changed through the DVD’s main menu.

Playing DVDs

Changing the Audio Language

If the disc was created with different language tracks (recorded in different languages), you can use the Info Display to temporarily change the DVD’s Audio Language setting.

1. While a disc is playing, press SOUND•ANT on the remote. The current audio language appears in the text box below the row of icons.

2. Press the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the audio languages that are available on the disc until the audio language you want to use appears in the text box. Audio will be played in that language.

3. To make the Info Display disappear, press the INFO button on the remote.

Notes: The language feature only works if the disc was created with multiple audio tracks.

When you choose an audio language from the Info Display, you only override the audio language setting in the DVD’s main menu temporarily.

The audio language can also be changed through the DVD’s main menu.

Using the Repeat Feature

The default mode for the Repeat feature is Off. There are four Repeat options:

• Disc – repeats the disc that is playing

• Title – repeats the title that is playing

• Chapter – repeats the chapter that is playing

• A•B – Set the beginning (point A) and the end (point B) to make this part of the movie play repeatedly.

To Use Repeat:

1. While a disc is playing, press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display.

2. Highlight the Repeat icon. The text in the text box below the icons will read Repeat Mode: Off.

3. Press the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the Repeat options until the Repeat option you want is displayed in the text box.

4. Press OK. The selected repeat option will loop repeatedly until you turn Repeat off. Repeat is turned off by completing steps 1 through 3 above, and selecting the Off option.

A•B Repeat

A•B Repeat lets you define a specific segment on the disc that you want to repeat. For example, you might like to watch the dogfight in the movie Top Gun. To watch this scene over and over:

1. Find the spot on the disc that is a few seconds before the beginning of the scene you want to repeat (this gives you time to access the Info Display and the Repeat feature).

2. Press INFO on the remote and select the Repeat icon from the Info Display.

3. Press the up/down arrow buttons until the A•B Repeat option is shown in the text box underneath the icons. The text box reads Repeat Mode: A-B Press OK to Set A Point.

4. At the beginning of the scene you want to repeat, press OK to set the A point.

5. When you get to the part of the disc that you want to be the end of the repeated segment (the B point), press OK. The segment will repeat until you turn Repeat off.

6. To make the Info Display disappear from the screen, press the INFO button on the remote.

How to Cancel Repeat

There are three ways to cancel Repeat:

• Press STOP twice.

• Go to the Repeat icon in the Info Display and select Off.

• Eject the disc.

Why You Should Use the Autotuning Feature

The autotuning feature automatically tunes the TV to the correct channel for different components you have connected to your TV/DVD (like a VCR)

When you set up autotuning in the menu system you don’t have to remember to change your TV to channel 3, for example, when you want to watch the tape in your VCR.

How to Set Up the Autotuning Feature

The way you set up the autotuning feature in the TV’s menu corresponds to the component buttons on the remote and the way you have each component connected to your TV/DVD. When you set up autotuning, you’re telling the TV what channel to tune to when you press the VCR1, VCR2, or

SAT•CABLE button on the remote control.

1. Press MENU (the MAIN MENU appears).

2. Highlight Setup and press OK on your remote control.

3. Highlight Autotuning and press OK.

4. Choose which channel you would like to set:

Set VCR 1 Channel Lets you set up the channel the TV tunes to when you press the VCR1 button.

Set VCR 2 Channel Lets you set up the channel the TV tunes to when you press the VCR2 button.

Set SAT/Cable Channel Lets you set up the channel the TV tunes to when you press the SAT•CABLE button on an RCA satellite receiver remote.

(The RCA DTC100 HD receiver is considered a satellite device and can be set up for autotuning using this channel.)

5. Press the right arrow button to select the choice that matches the way you have the component connected to this TV, and press OK.

The choices and a brief explanation follow:

N/A Choose this if you don’t have this particular component connected to the TV/DVD, or if you don’t want the TV to automatically tune to the correct channel when you’re using this component.

Channel 3 or 4 Component is connected to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack on the back of the TV/DVD, and you want the TV to tune to channel 3 when you press the corresponding button on the remote.

Reminder: make sure the component’s Channel 3/4 switch is set to channel 3.

VID1 or VID2 (Video Input) Component is connected to a VIDEO or S-Video jack on the back of the

TV/DVD and you want the TV to tune to a VID input channel when you press the corresponding button.

FRNT (Front Video Input) Component is connected to the VIDEO jack on the front of the TV/DVD and you want the TV to tune to the front VID input channel (FRNT) when you press the corresponding button.

CMP1 or CMP2 (Component Video Input) Compatible component video source, such as a digital TV converter box, is connected to the three COMPONENT VIDEO INPUT jacks (Y,PB,PR) on the back of the

TV/DVD and you want the TV to tune to the component video input channel (CMP) when you press the corresponding button.

Chapter 4

Using the TV’s Features

Parental Controls and V-Chip

The first three choices in the Parental Controls menu involve software inside your TV (referred to as V-Chip) which allows you to block TV programs and movies based on violence, sex, or other content you may believe children should not view.

Once you block programs, you can unblock programs by entering a password.

By default, the software inside your TV is turned “off.”

Note: Parental Control settings are not available for DVI, CMP1 or CMP2 inputs.

How V-Chip Works

V-Chip reads the program’s age-based rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc.) and content themes [(Violence (V), Adult Language (L), etc.)]. If you have blocked the rating and/or content themes that the program contains, you will receive the message This channel is not approved for viewing.

Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes, so programs received with no content themes will only be blocked if you block their agebased rating. You can also block out programs that have been given a rating of “Not Rated,” and programs that are considered “unrated.” The TV agebased ratings and content themes you can block are listed in the following table.

Age-Based Rating

TV-MA

Description and Content Themes for Age-Based Ratings

Mature Audience Only. Specifically designed to be viewed by adults and may be unsuitable for children under 17. It contains one or more of the following content themes: crude indecent language (L), explicit sexual activity (S), or graphic violence (V).

TV-14

TV-PG

TV-G

Parents Strongly Cautioned. Contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14. Parents are strongly urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against letting children under the age of 14 watch unattended. This program contains one or more of the following content themes: intensely suggestive dialogue (D), strong coarse language (L), intense sexual situations (S), or intense violence (V).

Parental Guidance Suggested. Contains material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. Many parents may want to watch it with their younger children. The program contains one or more of the following content themes: some suggestive dialogue (D), infrequent coarse language (L), some sexual situations (S), or moderate violence (V).

General Audience. Most parents would find this program suitable for all ages. It contains little or no sexual dialogue (D) or situations (S), no strong language (L), and little or no violence (V).

TV-Y7

TV-Y

Directed to Children 7 years and older. Designed for children ages 7 and above. It may be more appropriate for children who have acquired the developmental skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality. Themes and elements in this program may include mild fantasy violence (FV) or comedic violence, or may frighten children under the age of 7.

All Children. Themes and elements in this program are designed for a young audience, including children from ages 2-6. It is not expected to frighten younger children.

V-Chip TV Rating

The V-Chip TV Rating lets you decide which TV programs can and cannot be viewed.

To set TV programming limits:

1. Choose Parental Control from the Main menu. If Parental Controls have previously been locked, you must enter your password.

2. Press OK to continue.

3. Highlight and select V-Chip TV rating.

4. Once you get to the V-Chip TV rating limit screen, use the arrow buttons and OK on your remote to change the status of a TV program rating or content theme from View to Block.

5. For TV rating limits to take effect, lock Parental Controls by accessing the Lock parental controls menu.

While cleaning do not spray liquid directly on the screen, or allow liquid to run down the screen and inside the TV/DVD. Also, avoid placing drinks or vases with water on top of the TV/DVD. This could increase the risk of fire or shock hazard or damage to the TV/DVD.

Caution: Using video games or any external accessory with fixed images for extended periods of time can cause them to be permanently imprinted on the picture tube (or projection TV picture tubes). ALSO, some network/program logos, phone numbers, etc. may cause similar damage. This damage is not covered by your warranty.

Handling Cautions

• Before connecting other components to this TV/DVD, be sure to turn all components off.

• Don’t move the TV/DVD while a disc is being played. The disc may get scratched or broken, and the TV/DVD’s internal parts may be damaged.

• Don’t put any container filled with liquid or any small metal objects on the TV/DVD.

• Be careful not to put your hand into the disc tray.

• Don’t place anything other than the disc in the disc tray.

• Exterior influences such as lightning and static electricity can affect normal operation of this player. If this occurs, turn the TV/DVD off and on again with the ON•OFF button, or disconnect and then reconnect the AC power cord to the AC power outlet. The TV/DVD will operate normally.

• Be sure to remove the disc and turn off the TV/DVD after use.

Formation of Condensation

• Due to sharp changes in temperature and humidity, condensation may form if warm air comes in contact with any cold parts inside the TV/DVD.

• When condensation forms inside the TV/DVD, it may not operate correctly. If this occurs, leave the TV/DVD at room temperature until the inside of the disc tray becomes dry and operational.

• If condensation forms on a disc, wipe the disc with a soft, dry cloth by moving the cloth from the center hole toward the outer edge.
