HOW TO SETUP YOUR NEW HITACHI LCD TELEVISION
To take measures to prevent the LCD Television from tipping over and prevent possible injury it is important to mount the unit
in a stable place.
*Keep the LCD Television four inches away from the wall except those hung to the wall mount bracket.
NOTES: 1. Do not block the ventilation holes of the LCD Television. Blocking the ventilation holes might cause fire or defect.
2. If you purchased the wall mount bracket option, please ask for professional installer. Do not install by yourself.
Caution when moving the main unit
As this product is heavy, whenever it is moved, two people are required to transport it safely. Whenever the unit is moved it should be
lifted forward using the top and base on both sides for stability. When moving the LCD Television, lift the top and the bottom frame as
shown below.
ANTENNA
Unless your LCD Television is connected to a cable TV system or to a centralized antenna system, a good outdoor color TV antenna
is recommended for best performance. However, if you are located in an exceptionally good signal area that is free from interference
and multiple image ghosts, an indoor antenna may be sufficient.
LOCATION
Select an area where sunlight or bright indoor illumination will not fall directly on the picture screen. Also, be sure that the location
selected allows a free flow of air to and from the perforated back cover of the set.
To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where temperatures can
become excessively hot, for example, in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance, etc.
8
VIEWING
The major benefit of the HITACHI LCD Television is its large viewing screen. To see this large screen at its best, test various locations in
the room to find the optimum spot for viewing. The best picture is seen by sitting directly in front of the TV and about 5 to 11 feet from the
screen.
During daylight hours, reflections from outside light may appear on the screen. If so, drapes or screens can be used to reduce the
reflection or the TV can be located in a different section of the room.
If the TV’s audio output will be connected to a Hi-Fi system’s external speakers, the best audio performance will be obtained by placing
the speakers equidistant from each side of the receiver cabinet and as close as possible to the height of the picture screen center. For
best stereo separation, place the external speakers at least four feet from the side of the TV, place the surround speakers to the side or
behind the viewing area. Differences in room sizes and acoustical environments will require some experimentation with speaker
placement for best performance.

DTV USAGE
ATSC(Advanced Television System Committee) INTRODUCTION
Terrestrial broadcast is a traditional way of watching TV programs, simply by installing an outdoor YAGI antenna or an indoor rabbit ear
“analog TV”.
In recent years, “digital TV” arises and most countries’ governments have begun to mandate a TV Transition from the old analog TV
broadcast system to digital TV broadcast system. Digital TV brings viewer greater entertainment in terms of a noise free High Definition
picture quality and Dolby AC-3 sound effect. 16:9 video format gives a wider view of the same program compared with traditional 4:3
format. In the near future terrestrial data broadcast will create a complete digitized world in every family. Many terrestrial TV broadcaster
at this moment are delivering digital TV programs, when the time of government mandated transition deadline comes, all the analog TV
transmissions have to give way to digital, which makes the ZAT series digital terrestrial HDTV receivers a wise investment now.
Digital TV programs are broadcasted on both VHF and UHF radio frequency bands. Traditional analog TV transmission uses one radio
frequency channel for carrying one TV station’s programs, in the digital TV transmission one radio frequency channel can carry up to
four more TV station’s programs. For instance, the original analog channel CBS you used to watch now may have become
2-1,2-2,2-3,2-4 when it’s broadcasted in digital, here we call 2 as the major channel and -1, -2, -3 and -4 are sub-channels. These four
sub-channels usually come from the same TV station and show four different programs at the same time.
Digital TV signals are transmitted in either Free-to-Air (FTA) mode or Pay-per-View (PPV) mode. FTA signals can be received free by
anyone with MPEG 2–ATSC compliant digital terrestrial receiver, such as the ZAT series, whereas the PPV programs can only be
received by paying an access fee to the broadcaster and using a Digital receiver incorporating compatible conditional access system.
The receiver allows you to watch HDTV, EDTV and SDTV digital TV programs.
*HDTV stands for High Definition Television; its common video formats are “1920 x 1080 interlaced” or “1280 x 720 progressive”.
*EDTV stands for Enhanced Definition Television; its common video format is “720 x 480 progressive”.
*SDTV stands for Standard Definition Television; its common video format is “720 x 480 interlaced”.
ATSC RECEIVER FUNCTIONS
The Digital Terrestrial HDTV Receiver opens up a new world of free-to-air terrestrial HDTV and SDTV programming. The receiver can
receive channels from both VHF band and UHF band TV station’s signals. All the major terrestrial free-to-air station numbers currently
available in your area are listed in the on-screen menu. To watch the channel simply by selecting the channel number and you will be
accessing a wide range of local high quality digital programming.
The receiver is fully ATSC / MPEG-2 (digital video broadcast-terrestrial) compliant, delivering High Definition crystal-sharp video and
Dolby AC-3 sound. It supports a radio signal range from 50-860 MHz, so can be easily programmed for all the channels within the VHF
and UHF frequency bands. It can receive major and sub-channels containing both video and audio programs.
These receivers have the capability of receiving hundreds of channels simply by selecting alternate TV channel frequencies in your area.

• IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift. Usually
caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills,
and other electrical appliances.
• GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the direct path
and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills or some other objects. Changing the
direction or position of the antenna may improve reception. Ghosting may also be
caused by defects in the antenna system such as unshielded leads or connecting
several sets to the same antenna without using multiple antenna couplers.
• SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is
weak, your picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots. When the signal
is extremely weak, it may be necessary to install a special antenna to improve the
picture.
• The display image appears
scrolling diagonal.
• Text displayed across the screen
appears vertically streaked, with
the characters in vertical columns
blurred.
• RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some cases,
causes loss of contrast in the picture.
