s Operating Instructions
These items are all you need to set up and operate the TV in its basic
configuration.
Most components (VCRs, DVD players, etc.) come with the necessary
cables to connect them. If you want to set up a complex system, you may
need to buy extra cables, connectors, etc. Be sure to have these on hand
before you start to connect your system.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
s WEGA Engine™: Delivers superb picture quality from any video
source by minimizing the signal deterioration caused by digital-toanalog conversion and stabilizing the signal processing. This engine
features unique Sony technology, including:
• Composite Component Processor (CCP): The first step in the
digital processing system which enhances input signal to noise
ratio by chroma decoder digital processing.
(Continued)
13
Welcome
• DRC® (Digital Reality Creation) Multifunction V1: Unlike
conventional line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature replaces
the signal’s NTSC waveform with the near-HD equivalent by digital
mapping processing. The DRC Palette option lets you customize the
level of detail (Reality) and smoothness (Clarity) to create up to three
custom palettes.
• Multi-Image Driver (MID™-XU): (Twin View™) Allows you to
watch two programs side by side. You can watch pictures from two
different sources (1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i) simultaneously.
(Only the left Twin View window can display 1080i, 720p, and 480p
sources.)
• CineMotion™: Provides an optimized display by automatically
detecting film content and applying a reverse 3/2 pulldown process.
Moving pictures will appear clearer and more natural-looking.
• Newly developed LCD panel driver IC: Developed to improve
screen response time, using proprietary digital technology by Sony.
By improving the response time in the middle luminance range,
‘afterimage’ in motion pictures is significantly reduced, resulting in
smoother movement of images on the screen.
s Wide Screen Mode: Watch conventional 4:3 aspect ratio broadcasts in
wide screen mode.
s Favorite Channels: Allows you to preview and select from eight of
your favorite channels.
s Steady Sound®: Equalizes volume levels so there is consistent output
between programs and commercials.
s Memory Stick® Picture Viewer: Allows you to view on your TV
screen digital images that are stored on Memory Stick media.
s Component Video Inputs: Offers the best video quality for DVD
(480p, 480i), and digital set-top box (HD1080i, 720p) connections.
s HD Detailer™: Wideband video amplifier has a high bandwidth
frequency rating, which allows it to send more video information to the
screen, resulting in finer picture quality, especially for HD sources.
s Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows parents to block
unsuitable programming from younger viewers.
s Digital Visual Interface (DVI-HDTV): Can accommodate a copyprotected digital connection (HDCP*) to other devices (such as digital
set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. The DVI-HDTV input
terminal is compliant with the EIA-861 standard and is not intended for
use with personal computers.

Cable Box and Cable
Only
For best results, use this connection if:
s Your cable company scrambles some channels, such as premium
channels (which requires you to use a cable box), but does not scramble
all channels.
s You do not have a VCR. (If you have a VCR, see pages 30 and 32.)

About Using This Connection with Dual Picture (Twin View, etc.) Features
With this connection, you can use all the dual picture features for unscrambled
channels coming directly into the TV’s VHF/UHF input jack.
However, you can use only some of the dual picture features for channels coming
through the cable box to the TV’s AUX input jack. For example, when you switch
the TV’s input to AUX — to select the cable box input — the picture displays only
in the left window. For example, if you turn on Twin View, you can watch cable
channels coming into the VHF/UHF jack in the right window, but you cannot swap
the pictures between the left and right windows.

Setup
s Use the TV remote control to change channels coming through the cable
box to the TV’s AUX input jack. (You must first program the remote
control for your specific cable box; see “Programming the Remote
Control” on page 54.)
To connect the cable box and cable
1 Connect your cable company to the TV’s VHF/UHF jack using the
supplied antenna cable.
2 Use a coaxial cable to connect the TV’s TO CONVERTER jack to the
cable box’s input jack. (The TV’s internal converter lets you switch
between unscrambled signals coming straight into the TV and
scrambled signals coming in through the cable box, eliminating the need
for an external splitter.)

The equipment must have infrared (IR) remote capability in
order to be used with the remote control.

Remote Control
three-digit code number for the manufacturer of your equipment. (If
more than one code number is listed, use the number listed first.)
2 Press FUNCTION repeatedly until the DVD/VCR or SAT/CABLE
indicator lights up.
3 While the desired indicator is lit, enter the three-digit manufacturer’s
code number.
4 Press ENTER.
You must do step 4 within 10 seconds of step 3, or you must
redo steps 3 through 4.
5 To check if the code number works, aim the TV’s remote control at the
equipment and press POWER that corresponds with that equipment. If
it responds, you are done. If not, try using another code listed for that
manufacturer.
Notes
s If more than one code number is listed, try entering them one by one
until you come to the correct code for your equipment.
s If you enter a new code number, the code number you previously
entered at that setting is erased.
s In some cases, you may not be able to operate your equipment with the
supplied remote control. In such cases, use the equipment’s own remote
control unit.
s Whenever you remove the batteries to replace them, the code numbers
may revert to the factory setting and must be reset.

analog signal
aspect ratio
A signaling method that uses continuous changes in the amplitude or frequency of an
electronic transmission to convey information.
Refers to the ratio between the width and height of the screen. This TV has a wide
screen, as opposed to a 4:3 aspect ratio.
4:3 aspect ratio
component video
Component video is sent through three cables: two color shade (chrominance) signals
and one brightness (luminance) signal. Component video achieves greater color
accuracy than composite video or S VIDEO by splitting chrominance into two
separate portions.
composite video
Composite video is sent through a single cable. Composite video combines the color
shade (chrominance) and brightness (luminance) information into one video signal.
digital television (DTV)

Other Info
A new technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV
provides higher resolution and improved sound quality over analog television.
A unit of the Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC, that
establishes television standards in the United States, such as NTSC Color, the
standard used in this TV.
Radio Frequency. That part of the frequency spectrum in which it is possible to
radiate (transmit) electromagnetic waves.
S VIDEO
S VIDEO requires a single cable, which carries the brightness (luminance) and color
(chrominance) signals of the picture separately. S VIDEO provides better resolution
than composite video, which carries the signals together.
VHF/UHF
VHF (Very High Frequency) is the part of the radio spectrum from 30 to 300
megahertz. UHF (Ultra High Frequency) is the part of the radio spectrum from 300 to
3,000 megahertz.

provider).
The compression used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs may cause your
TV’s screen to display less detail than usual, or cause artifacts (small blocks or
dots, pixelations) to appear on your screen. This is due to your TV’s large screen
and ability to show very fine detail, and is normal for certain digitally recorded
programs. Adjust the reality/clarity in the DRC Palette menu (see page 79) to
