Cleaning Recommendations

Normally, light dusting with a dry, non-scratching duster will keep your LCD TV clean. If cleaning beyond this is needed, please use the following guidelines:

First, turn off the TV and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

Top and Sides of the TV

• Gently wipe down your TV with a soft, non-abrasive cloth such as cotton flannel or a clean cloth diaper, lightly moistened with water. Dry with a second dry, soft, non-abrasive cloth.

• For oily dirt, add a few drops of mild liquid detergent, such as dish-washing detergent, to the water used to moisten the cloth. Rinse with a second cloth moistened only with water. Dry with a third dry, soft, nonabrasive cloth.

LCD Screen Cleaning

• DO NOT use any liquid to clean the screen. Only use a dry, soft cloth.

• Wipe the screen gently with an up and down motion.

• Clean the entire screen evenly, not just sections of the screen.

• DO NOT use any strong or abrasive cleaners, as these can scratch the surfaces.

• DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia, bleach, alcohol, benzene, or thinner, as these can dull the surfaces.

4. AVR OUT

(Audio only)

AVR OUT (AUDIO/VIDEO RECEIVER OUT) L/R jacks send analog audio of the program currently shown on the screen to an A/V surround sound receiver or stereo system. Digital audio from digital channels, FireWire®

(DTVLink/IEEE 1394) devices and HDMI devices is converted to analog audio by the TV. If using an analog A/V receiver or stereo system, this is the only audio connection needed between it and the TV.

5. MONITOR OUTPUT

Use these composite video and left/right audio jacks to send analog video and audio signals to an external recording device such as a VCR. The signals from these jacks are from the program currently being viewed on the

TV screen. To make recordings from this output, the

TV must be in normal full-screen mode rather than in

Split-Screen mode.

• From this output you can record audio and video signals from ANT 1, ANT 2, INPUT 1-3, and

IEEE 1394 devices.

• Digital signals from ANT 1, ANT 2, and IEEE

1394 devices are converted to analog video and audio signals.

• Some signals cannot be recorded because of copy-protection flags in the content.

• Video signals from Component inputs, HDMI inputs, and PC-DVI inputs are not sent to record output.

6. HDMI/DVI AUDIO

Use these analog audio inputs when connecting DVI video devices to the TV’s HDMI jacks. Unlike HDMI, DVI does not carry audio information on the same cable.

For analog audio from a personal computer, use the PC-

DVI AUDIO jacks instead.

Chapter 1. Television Overview 19

CableCARD™ Technology

CableCARD is a nationwide system standard that allows your local cable TV provider to supply you with an access card customized to your account. This card allows your

TV to receive, decode, and unscramble the premium digital channels included in your cable TV subscription without the use of a cable box. When you move to a new cable provider’s area, return the CableCARD to the original cable provider and get a new card from your new provider.

Please note that CableCARD is a relatively new technology and your local cable provider may not currently be offering this service. As time passes, this system will become broadly supported by most cable providers.

The CableCARD system is unidirectional, meaning your cable provider can send updates to the TV, but the TV cannot send signals back. As a result, certain advanced and interactive digital cable services, such as requests for video-on-demand and pay-per-view programs, a cable operator’s enhanced program guide, and data-enhanced television services may require use of a set-top box instead. For more information, call your local cable operator.

Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD are available on the Firewire® IEEE 1394 network and can be shared by other products on the network. You may be unable to record or copy some digital programs, however, because of copy restrictions set by the content or copyright owners.

Using a CableCARD™

Power on the TV and insert the CableCARD into the

CableCARD slot with the top of the card oriented as indicated by CARD TOP . When the initial screen displays, write down the information that appears and have it ready when calling your cable provider.

Digital Video and Home Recording

The table below will help you decide which type of connection to use for digital video. Digital video comes to your home in a compressed state, whether received on recorded media (e.g., disc) or broadcast over the air, over cable, or via satellite. Some compressed digital video is available for recording as noted in the table.

Connection Type into the TV

HDMI or DVI

Compressed video is converted to uncompressed form by an external device such as a cable box, satellite receiver, or

DVD player before it is sent to the TV on an

HDMI or DVI cable.

IEEE 1394 (FireWire®) Connections

Your TV can receive and decode digital channels, MPEG2 compressed digital video, and Dolby Digital audio.

Effect on Home Recording

You cannot record the resultant uncompressed video sent to the TV via HDMI or DVI.

You can record compressed digital video either

• on compatible digital recorders as digital signals using IEEE 1394 connections

• converted to analog signals and recorded as standard-definition composite video from the MONITOR OUTPUT jacks

You may be unable to record some programming because of copy restrictions added by the content owners.

Chapter 2. TV Connections 31

IEEE 1394 Devices

Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices

Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all, cable boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, and future products.

Some devices may have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not compatible with the TV. Areas of compatibility to consider are:

1. Digital Video Signals

The TV can decode MPEG2 video provided by some, but not all camcorders. If the TV is unable to decode the digital signal supplied by the camcorder, connect the camcorder to the TV using analog audio plus composite video, S-video, or component video, or use HDMI audio/ video. Other types of digital video, such as PC video provided by some computers, must be decoded by the source device and sent to the TV as analog video, S-video, or DVI/HDMI video.

2. Digital Audio Signals

When received with video signals, the TV can decode

Dolby Digital signals and MPEG audio signals. Other types of digital audio as provided by some digital recording devices, such as DTS audio, cannot be decoded by the TV when received over IEEE 1394 connections.

The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital audio signals on the coaxial digital audio output. These signals may pass to other devices, however, on IEEE 1394 cables.

3. Digital Control Signal

The TV can serve as the control center for IEEE 1394 audio/video devices, such as VCRs, A/V Discs, tuners, cable boxes, and amplifiers that are compatible with the following IEEE 1394 control standards.

• EIA-775. Designed for tuning devices such as cable boxes, allowing the device to send simple graphics. This standard does not, however, allow the TV to control the cable box by IEEE 1394.

• AV/C (Audio Video Control). Designed to provide basic controls such as play, stop, channel selection, and volume, as appropriate for the device.

4-pin connector 6-pin connector 6-pin-to-4-pin adapter

If you wish to connect a 6-pin device to the TV (such as a camcorder), and the device is designed to receive electrical power from another 6-pin device, there are several ways to provide electrical power to the device:

• Connect the camcorder directly to the household AC.

• Use the camcorder’s battery for power.

• Connect the camcorder directly to another 6-pin device in the network that can provide power.

Connection Methods

There are two connection methods for IEEE 1394 devices. Use the method that fits your network of audio/video products.

Direct Device-To-Device Method

The IEEE 1394 interface allows you to chain devices, unlike audio and video connections that require you to connect each individual device directly to the TV. For example, you can connect your D-VHS to your 1394 A/V disc and then connect the 1394 A/V disc to the TV. The resulting IEEE 1394 chain allows you to add more devices to the chain. You will see an icon for each device in the

TV’s Input Selection menu and can also send information from any IEEE 1394 device to other compatible devices.

��

���������

�������

����

Four-Pin and 6-Pin Connections

There are two different types of connectors used for IEEE

1394 terminals and cables: a 4-pin and a 6-pin type.

Both types send the same digital audio, video, and control signals, but the 6-pin connectors can also supply lowvoltage electrical power to connected devices. This TV uses only 4-pin type connectors.

A 6-pin connector cannot be connected directly to a 4-pin jack, and vice versa. To connect a 6-pin device to a 4-pin device, use a 6-pin-to-4-pin adapter or adapter cable.

These cables are available from electronics and computer stores.

Hub Connection Method

The IEEE 1394 standard allows you to use the TV as a hub within the audio/video network. Each device can send information, which may include audio and video, to any other device in the network.

32 Chapter 2. TV Connections

IEEE 1394 Devices, continued

Tips for Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices

• Do not loop the last device in the chain back to the TV. When the device chain is looped, the TV may not be able to work with the other devices.

��

��������

����

�������

����

• Place devices that have only a mechanical (two-position) power switch at the end of the chain or leave the power switch in the on position. When turned off,

IEEE 1394 signals may not be able to pass through the device to other devices.

• Place devices with the slowest communication speed at the end of the chain. Sometimes the communication speed is marked near the IEEE 1394 connector with an “S” number. The higher the number, the faster the communication speed. This TV has a communication speed of s400. Devices with slow communication speeds can interfere with IEEE 1394 signals from faster devices. When setting up a digital recording between a faster device and a slower device, make the slower device the source and make the faster device the recorder.

• Use IEEE 1394 cables 15 feet or less in length between devices.

• This TV is an IEEE 1394a device. It can be used with an IEEE 1394b system when an IEEE-1394a-to-1394b convertor is used. IEEE 1394b systems are capable of greater distances and multi-room applications.

• The TV can recognize a maximum of seven IEEE 1394 devices at any one time.

IEEE 1394 Camcorders

• Control Functions. Connect the camcorder to the

TV’s IEEE 1394 jack on the rear of the TV and test using the TV’s remote control to operate the camcorder. If your model does not operate properly, use the camcorder’s control buttons instead.

• MPEG Camcorder. If you are unable to play back over the IEEE 1394 interface, use the analog audio/ video connections described in chapter 2, “TV Connections.”

• DV Camcorder. Connect the camcorder using the analog audio and video connections described in chapter 2, “TV Connections.”

�������������

Depending on your camcorder model, you may be able to control it using the TV’s remote control by connecting the IEEE 1394 cable. Connect the 1394 cable and try controlling the camcorder, even if you are using analog connections for audio and video.

Chapter 2. TV Connections 33

IR Emitter NetCommand®/G-Link and TV Guide On Screen

An IR emitter cable is included with the TV.

The NetCommand system uses emitters connected to the IR EMITTER jack to control other devices such as VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes, and satellite receivers. This control system is shared with the TV Guide On

Screen system.

1. Connect the plug end of the supplied IR emitter cable to the IR EMITTER NetCommand®/G-Link jack on the TV back panel.

2. Run the cable for each of the emitter ends under, alongside, or over each device to be controlled so that the emitter end is in front of the area where the remote control sensor is located.

3. Position the emitter end with the emitter bulb facing the remote control sensor. The bulb emits infrared light in a cone-shaped pattern. Place the bulb far enough from the sensor to allow the cone pattern to reach the sensor.

The IR sensor is usually behind the plastic window of the front display panel. It is sometimes visible with the aid of a flashlight and is normally a round or square cutout behind the plastic. If you cannot see the sensor and the device’s Owner’s Guide does not specify the location, you can find it by following these steps using the device’s remote control: a. Hold the remote about one-half inch from the front of the device. Starting from one end of the display window plastic, press the POWER button.

b. If the device does not respond, move the remote control one inch toward the center and try again. c. Repeat this until the device responds.

d. Note this location and then start over from the other end of the display window plastic, repeating until the device responds again.

The remote control sensor is somewhere between these two positions. This is usually enough accuracy for placement of the IR emitters.

With some devices, the emitter works better facing downward from the top of the device.

Experiment if needed.

4. Secure the emitter ends in place using double-sided tape.

IMPORTANT

Position IR emitters so that each device’s sensor “sees” the signal from only one emitter. Otherwise, a device receiving signals from multiple sources (remote controls, IR emitters) may not respond at all.

5. Place any unused ends behind the devices to prevent stray signals from reaching the IR sensors.

2. Press INPUT to display the Input Selection menu, highlight the VCR’s icon, and press ENTER to select the VCR.

3. Press MENU to open the Main menu, highlight the NetCommand icon, and press ENTER.

4. Under AV RECEIVER SETUP, confirm that the text box displays None.

5. Press EXIT.

6. Press INPUT, press AUDIO, press to highlight AVR, then press ENTER to confirm your selection.

After performing these steps, the TV will automatically pass the audio signal to the AVR.

Q. I have both the TV stereo audio output and TV digital audio output connected to the same input designations on my A/V Receiver (AVR). How do I switch between analog audio and digital audio?

A. In most setups, analog audio is also output as digital audio, so no switching is required, and there is no need to connect the analog output. In some circumstances, however, you may also need analog audio from the TV. For example, some HDMI copy-protected audio is only output in analog format, so you must connect the TV’s analog

AUDIO OUTPUT to the AVR if you want to hear this audio through the AVR. Refer to your AVR user’s guide to find out how analog/digital audio switching works.

Q. The front panel of my A/V Receiver (AVR) is too tall or too convex for the IR emitter signal to reach the remote control sensor of the AVR. What can I do?

A. There are several possible solutions.

• Mount the IR Emitter on the top, front edge of the AVR over the remote control sensor. Use tape to secure it in place.

• Mount the IR Emitter on the underside of the shelf above the AVR (if the AVR is in a cabinet). Use double sided tape to secure it in place.

• Some small stick-on emitters from other manufacturers may be compatible with this TV’s IR Emitter jacks.

These may be used instead of the supplied IR Emitters.

Q. I occasionally need to see the menu from my A/V Receiver (AVR). How can I connect it to the TV for this purpose?

A. Connect the AVR’s video output to an unused input on the TV and then use the AVR’s remote control to display the menu.

1. Connect the video output of the AVR to an unused input on the TV; Input 3 on the front panel is the most convenient. The Auto Input Sensing screen will displays when the TV detects the new connection,

2. Press EXIT to close the screen without naming the input.

3. Select INPUT 3 (or other input you used) from the Input Selection menu: press INPUT, highlight the Input 3 icon, and press ENTER.

4. Press the MENU key on the AVRr’s remote control to open the AVR’s menu.

5. When finished, disconnect the AVR’s video input from the TV.

Q. I have a high definition receiver I would like to connect and it also has an S-video output I would like to be able use as well. Is there any way to connect this receiver both ways?

A. Yes, this item will appear twice in the Input Selection Menu. Just add this unit once using the COMPONENT or HDMI input and once using one of the S-VIDEO inputs. Mitsubishi suggests that you connect stereo audio outputs with the S-video input only.

Initial NetCommand® Setup

What You Need to Know About NetCommand

• NetCommand setup is optional.

• NetCommand operates by sending signals from the

TV to your other devices via the IR emitters, telling the devices to play, record, change inputs, adjust volume, change channels and many more functions. All this is accomplished with the TV’s remote control and the slide switch left in the TV position.

• The IR “Learning” feature of NetCommand allows the TV to learn the remote control signals for your A/V devices.

• NetCommand® can control IEEE 1394 devices by sending control signals over a FireWire® cable.

• You can choose the level of NetCommand control for your home theater.

Limited Setup. Perform a limited setup if you:

Want NetCommand to control only a few devices, such as the TV, a playback device

(like a DVD player), and a cable box. With this setup, you can use the TV’s remote control to operate these devices.

Want to use TV Guide On Screen® to control your cable box and VCR and/or A/V disc.

After performing this setup, you can use the

TV’s remote control to operate these devices.

Want the ease and flexibility of NetCommandcontrolled recording, with seamless setup of time-delayed or immediate recordings among networked devices.

Full Setup. Perform a full setup if you want to give NetCommand the following additional control:

Control a surround sound A/V receiver.

Automatically change input selections for the

A/V receiver.

Initial NetCommand Setup for Most Device

Types

• To set up an A/V receiver, see “Additional Setup Using the NetCommand Menu” later in this chapter.

Set Up Automatic Switching of A/V Receiver

Audio Inputs

There are two parts to this setup:

Part 1: “Learn” IR codes to control A/V receiver switching to the specified A/V receiver audio inputs.

Part 2: Tell the TV where connected devices send audio.

Because the TV’s Auto Input Sensing feature never detects audio connections, the TV does not know that an A/V receiver is connected until you perform this procedure.

The sample setup shown in figure 14 illustrates three typical scenarios for sending audio to an A/V receiver:

• Analog Stereo Audio. Audio from sources with only analog stereo output (such as a VCR) can be sent either directly to the A/V receiver or to the TV first and then on to the A/V receiver.

Mitsubishi recommends you send audio to the TV first as shown in the example. The TV can convert the signal to digital audio and then send it to a digital A/V receiver.

• Audio Available from TV only. Audio from ANT 1 and ANT 2 and IEEE 1394 devices can only be sent to the A/V receiver from the TV’s DIGITAL AUDIO

OUT or analog AUDIO OUT LEFT/RIGHT. In this setup, you tell NetCommand to switch to the A/V receiver’s designated TV audio input when using these devices.

• Digital Surround Sound. A device (e.g., DVD player, cable box, satellite receiver) can send digital surround sound such as Dolby Digital or DTS directly to the A/V receiver, bypassing the TV entirely. A DVD player is used in this example.

It is also possible for your setup to include two (or more) devices with digital surround sound connected directly to the A/V receiver. These devices might be a

DVD player plus a cable box or satellite receiver.

TV Signals and Picture Formats

This is a widescreen TV, also known as a 16:9 TV. This shape reflects the new types of picture formats available from HDTV and many DVDs. There are still many older style narrow-screen picture formats (for example, 4:3 aspect ratio) you will encounter. While there is no perfect solution for displaying a squarish, narrower image on a wide screen, Mitsubishi offers several picture formats from which you can choose.

Note: “Picture format” refers to the aspect ratio or the relative size/shape of the picture, such as 16:9 or 4:3.

Press FORMAT on the TV remote control to cycle through the available picture formats. The last-used format for each device is used when you return to that device.

Note: In Split Screen mode, the FORMAT key changes the picture size on both sides of the screen, but the aspect ratio (relative height and width) of both pictures remains the same.

DVD Definitions

Anamorphic (or Enhanced for WideScreen TV)

These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly show widescreen pictures on 16:9 TV sets using the

Standard format mode. This is the recommended viewing choice.

Non-Anamorphic (or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letter Box, or Full

Screen)

These DVDs are recorded for use with traditionally shaped, squarish TVs. They may be full screen (4:3 or 1:33:1) which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or letter box, which adds black top and bottom bars.

This information may be listed on the DVD case. Some

DVDs support both types of recordings.

Signal Definitions

480i Signals: Traditional analog interlaced signals from or through ANT-1 and 2, INPUT 1–3, COMPONENT inputs , HDMI 1 and 2.

480p Signals: Progressive-scan DVD signals on COM-

PONENT inputs and HDMI 1 and 2 .

720p and 1080i Signals: High-definition signals received through COMPONENT inputs and HDMI 1 and 2.

These signals are always 16:9 (widescreen).

1080p Signals: High-definition signals received through

HDMI 1 and 2.

SD 4:3: Standard-definition narrow-screen format signals from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.

SD 16:9: Standard-definition widescreen format signals from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.

HD: High-definition wide-screen format signals from digital channels and IEEE-1394 devices. These signals are always

16:9 (widescreen).

TV Picture Format Definitions

Standard: This is the full-screen format. HDTV signals use this format. This format is useful for displaying

Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratios.

Anamorphic DVDs that have a 2.35:1 aspect ratio are displayed with black bars at the top and bottom, but show the entire picture correctly. Narrow (4:3) pictures are stretched evenly from side to side. Available for all signals.

Expand: This enlarges the picture to fill the screen, cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom. This is useful for reducing the letter box top and bottom bars of non-anamorphic DVD images. Available for 480i, 480p, and digital SD 4:3 signals only.

Zoom: This enlarges the picture, cropping off some of the image at each side and top and bottom. This is useful for removing or reducing the black top and bottom bars on anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Available for 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

Stretch: This format stretches a narrow (4:3) picture across the screen; there is less stretch in the center than at the sides, however. This allows the entire narrow image to be displayed across the screen with less distortion than is seen in the Standard format. Available for 480i and

480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

Stretch Plus: Similar to stretch mode, but to minimize distortions on the side, the picture is expanded to crop off portions of the top and bottom. Except when displaying menus, press to adjust the position of the picture vertically. Available for 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

Narrow: This format displays narrow (4:3) pictures in their original shape, and adds stationary black side bars to fill the screen. Available for 480i, 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars added to narrow pictures that are converted to 16:9 signals for digital broadcast. Available for 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9 and digital

HD signals.

Note: All high-definition channels send widescreen (16:9) signals, but not all programming sent on these channels was created for this format. As a result, the broadcaster must convert such programming for broadcast, and may stretch the picture or add side bars to fill the widescreen area.

Captions Menu

For analog channels, broadcasters can send either standard closed captions or text service. Standard closed captions follow the dialogue of the characters on screen and display in a small section of the screen. Text-service closed captions often contain information such as weather or news and cover a large portion of the screen.

For digital channels, broadcasters can send up to six different captioning selections or can send analog captions that are the same as those sent by the analog station.

Each TV station may broadcast only one or two types of captions or none at all. The TV cannot decode closed captions received on component or HDMI inputs.

TV content categories. Boxes marked with an “X” indicate supplemental blocking you can apply to each rating level.

The TV rating you select is for the least-restrictive program level allowed. For example, if you select TV-PG, programs rated TV-Y, TV-Y7, and TV-PG can be viewed, but programs rated TV-14 and TV-MA are blocked.

When you select a TV content category to block, all TV programs with the same content category listing are blocked. For example, if you select to block V (Violence) at the TV-14 level, any programs with the V category listing rated TV-PG are also blocked.

V-CHIP EXCEPTIONS

• V-Chip blocking is ineffective for programs viewed on devices connected to component or HDMI inputs. Many of these devices, however, have their own parental-control systems.

• Videotapes, laser discs, and DVDs may not contain V-Chip rating signals. V-Chip cannot block playback of recordings without V-Chip rating signals.

• V-Chip cannot block programming broadcast without the V-Chip rating signal.

Movie Ratings

Movie ratings are the MPAA ratings used for theaterreleased and direct-to-video movies. Movie ratings are:

G General Audience. Designed for the entire family to view.

PG Parental Guidance. Parental Guidance is recommended, may not be suitable for some children.

PG-13 Parental Guidance, 13 and Older. Not

R recommended for children under the age of 13.

Restricted. Restricted in theaters to 17 years old and older unless accompanied by an adult.

NC-17 No Children 17 or Under. Restricted in theaters

X to 18 years old and older.

Adult. Designed for and restricted in theaters to adult audiences only.

The movie rating you select is for the least-restrictive program level that can be viewed. For example, if you select the PG-13 rating, movies rated G, PG and PG-13 can be watched, but movies rated R, NC-17, and X are blocked.

Programs Not Rated: This refers to programs that carry no rating, such as news, sports, weather, emergency bulletins, or movies prior to or without MPAA ratings. This does not include programs without V-Chip signals.

IMPORTANT

If you enable blocking with the Programs

Not Rated option, you may block news or emergency bulletins carrying the “None” or

IEEE 1394 System Compatibility

• This television is designed to conform to IEEE 1394 AV/C Software standards in effect at the time of development.

This networking and control technology is designed to provide high-performance digital connections and product control, making the product easier to use.

• Mitsubishi D-VHS VCRs are fully compatible with this TV in audio, video, and control.

• As other manufacturers distribute products that use the IEEE 1394 AV/C standards, they will be responsible for developing products that meet the standards of the technology, as well as compatibility testing with other products.

Mitsubishi cannot be responsible for their efforts, and therefore cannot promise compatibility with these other products. Any compatibility problems with other manufacturers’ products should be brought to the attention of those manufacturers.

HDMI

The HDMI input is compliant with EIA-861B standards for standard, extended, and high-definition video; digital audio, and HDCP copy protection. The HDMI inputs on this TV are not intended for use with personal computers or devices outputting video signals with computer resolutions.

Appendices 99

Appendix C: Programming the Remote Control

This appendix explains how to program the TV’s remote control to operate other A/V devices. This is distinct from

NetCommand “Learning.” To summarize: the TV’s remote control can be made to operate other devices by two different methods:

• Remote Control Programming: you must move the slide switch to the position specific to the type of device. Programming is available for the large remote control only.

• NetCommand® “Learning”: you can operate other devices with the slide switch in the TV position. Position IR emitters in front of the other devices and “teach” the devices’ IR signals to the TV. “Learned” functions are sent by the TV and work with both the large and small remote controls.

See chapter 3 for details about NetCommand learning.

Functions Available for Other A/V Devices

The TV’s remote control can be programmed to operate other types and brands of A/V products. To use the remote when programmed, set the slide switch to the position labelled for the product type. The functions performed in each switch position can vary depending on the product. Not all functions work for all models. The most common functions available are listed on this page.

Set the remote control’s slide switch to the type of device you wish to program or control.

Appendices 109 channel (a channel from ANT 1, ANT 2, a cable box, or satellite receiver), first check other channels from the same input before changing settings. If most other channels from the same input seem correct, there is likely a problem with the broadcast rather than with the TV. Use care in this case, as changes you make to fix problems on individual channels also affect all other channels on the same input.
