IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Television Antenna Connection Protection
External Television Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is to be connected to the LCD TV, make sure that
the antenna or cable system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against
voltage surges and static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPSA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
the grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements of the grounding electrode.
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the LCD TV during a lightning storm or when it is left
unattended or unused for long periods of time, unplug the LCD TV from the wall outlet
and disconnect the antenna or cable system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it could fall
into such power lines or circuits.

Detailed Explanations
Aspect Ratio Explained
The X320 is a widescreen TV, but most TV programs are still broadcasting in a square format,
therefore the TV is offering two ways of viewing videos. There are mainly two types of signal format,
FULL (16:9), and 4:3. Simply use the ASPECT button on the TV to cycle between both modes.
1.
FULL
This mode will stretch the picture to a widescreen ratio. If you have a perfect 16:9 ratio picture
you will not see any black bars. If you are watching a widescreen movie in 1.85:1 or 2.35:1
ratio, you will still get black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.
2.
4:3
Most analog TV channels have 4:3 signal formats. If the original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1
source) is preserved, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image. This
aspect keeps that aspect ratio and shows you the black bars on the side.
