Safety
Configurations may vary. Cables and adaptors may be sold separately. Internet service and any
routers required are sold separately. For more information refer to the Safety and Regulatory
Information in the User Guides folder. Click Start, All Programs, and then click User Guides.
WARNING! Please read “Additional Safety Information” in the Limited Warranty and Support Guide
before installing and connecting your computer to the electrical power system.
WARNING! Take the following precautions to reduce the risk of electrical shock or damage to your
equipment.
Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
Disconnect power from the equipment by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet. To
prevent direct exposure to the laser beam, do not try to open the enclosure of the CD or DVD drives.
WARNING! The computer may be heavy; be sure to use ergonomically correct lifting procedures
when moving the computer. To reduce the risk of serious injury, read the Safety & Comfort Guide.
The guide is located on the Web at www.hp.com/ergo
WARNING! Norway and Sweden only: Cable grounding notice for products with a TV tuner. Your
tuner requires that you use a TV tuner isolator (adapter, purchased separately) with your computer to
connect a coaxial cable to the TV signal source. Using the TV tuner adapter helps prevent personal
injury and computer damage from surges on the coaxial line.
CAUTION: Like any other home electronic product, keep the computer away from liquids or a harsh
environment that contains excessive dust, heat, or humidity.
For HP TouchSmart PCs:
CAUTION: The HP TouchSmart touch screen uses a sensitive touch technology. To avoid
damaging the touch screen, do not apply pressure on the front of the display bezel or around the
screen borders.
CAUTION: To achieve the best touch sensitivity, keep the screen clean from foreign objects. Avoid
excessive dust accumulation on all sides of the screen.

Connecting the TV signal
The TV signal may come from an antenna, a cable TV signal provider, or a satellite TV signal
provider. For best results, the TV signal should be connected directly to the computer. If using a settop box to connect to the computer, additional cables (not provided) may be required.
NOTE:
The location and number of connectors for the TV signal may vary by model.
NOTE:
The Television (Electronic) Program Guide is not available in all countries/regions.
Your computer may not include all the cables needed for the television setup. You may need to
purchase cables, a coaxial signal splitter, or other accessories separately.
For more information about TV signals and TV tuners, see the Microsoft web site: www.microsoft.com
and click Windows 7 and then type tv tuner in the search bar.
Connecting TV signal directly to computer
NOTE:
The location and number of connectors may vary by model.
Connect the coaxial cable from your TV antenna or TV signal provider directly into the computer. The
TV signal is either an analog cable or digital antenna signal.
1.
Determine the location of the TV In or TV Input connector (4) on your computer. The location of
this connector varies by computer.
2.

Using infrared (IR) devices
Your computer may have a built-in IR receiver, or IR extender cable that connects to your computer.
To determine which type of IR receiver is installed on your computer, see additional documentation
that came with your computer.
Built-in receiver
Some computer models include a remote sensor (IR receiver) that is located on the front of the
computer. For more information about this internal remote sensor, see the other documentation that
came with your computer. The remote control works with this sensor.

If you have a cable TV or satellite TV set-top box, you can control the set-top box from the computer
by connecting the remote control sensor cable/IR blaster to the computer. IR emitters (blasters), IR
extender cables, and IR receivers are used to allow the remote control to communicate with a
computer that uses a set-top box to obtain a TV signal.

B-CAS card (Japan only)
The B-CAS card (provided by HP) needs to be installed into your computer.
WARNING! Always disconnect the computer from the power source before removing the memory
cover or the back cover. Failure to do so before you open the computer or perform any procedures
can result in personal injury or equipment damage.
WARNING! Avoid touching sharp edges inside the computer.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury from electrical shock or hot surfaces, disconnect
the power cord from the wall outlet, and allow the internal system components to cool before touching
them.
CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the electronic components of the computer or optional
equipment. Ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by briefly touching a grounded metal
object.
1.
Turn off your computer and disconnect the power cord and any other cables connected to your
computer.
2.
Insert a B-CAS card (provided by HP) into the back of the computer to decrypt high-definition
programming. Some models may need to remove the back panel.
3.
Connect the coaxial cable from your TV antenna or TV cable provider to the TV In connector
located on the back of the computer. The location of the TV In connector varies by model.
Dual tuner (Japan only)
Dual-tuner TV source allows watching a show on one channel while recording another show on a
different channel. You can also record two different programs at the same time. The characteristics
and requirements for dual-tuner TV source are as follows:
10
●
If you are using a standard cable connector, the signal is routed to both tuners internally.
●
If you are using cable or satellite, you must connect a second set of input cables.
●
TV sources must be of the same type: either cable TV or satellite TV.
●
TV sources must also have identical channel lineups; for example, if you are using two satellite
TV sources, they must provide exactly the same channels.
●
All TV viewing and scheduling is provided by the Television (Electronic) Program Guide, so both
TV sources must have identical television program guides.
