Part 2: Why RCA Scenium DLP

TM

is better?

DLP

TM is just part of the story. You have chosen to embark on |he next generation of TV viewing-Hr)TV. There are many technological advancements that make HDTV better |han analog TV, but them are basically three things about HDTV that bring you a superior viewing experience: (1) resolution, (2) aspect ratio, and (3) digital signal and sound.

Resolution (it's math...that

works for you)

The crisp, lil_elike picture people rave about when experiencing true HDTV is due to the resolution this technology provides.

The resolution is measured by calculating the number of active lines of pixels.

A pLxel (which stands tk)r picture element) is a small dot. The picture you see on your "IV is composed of these dots.

A regular, analog television (called analog) only has a resolution of about 200,000 pb_els (480 vertical pLxels x 440 horizontal pixels = 211,200 pLxels).

The HDTV fbrmat is capable of morn than 2 million pLxels (1,920 x 1,080 = 2,073,600).

Morn pixels equals morn detail. In summary, HDTV is capable of resolution that is up to 10 times the resolution of/lie picture on a regular, analog TV!

16:9 Aspect Ratio

Aspect Ratio

Aspect ratio is simply the width and height of the picture.

Regular "INs use a

4 x 3 (also written 4:3) aspect ratio, which means the picture is a little wider than it is tall (a screen that is 20 inches wide is about 15 inches tall).

When/l_e standards were being developed fbr television broadcasting in

1941 by the NTSC (the National Television Standards Committee), it made sense to adopt the 4 x 3 aspect ratio that/he film industry was using at that time.

As TVs dropped in price and people prospered in/he 1950s, the movie industry had to find a way to get people out of their living rooms and back to the movie theatres.

That's when they created/lie 16 x 9 (also written 16:9) aspect ratio (also called widescreeen format). When the standards tbr HDTV were being developed by the ATSC (Advanced "Pelevision Standards

Committee), the 16 x 9 aspect ratio was chosen as the tbrmat for HDTV.

This widescreen tbrmat makes sense because it's much closer to/l_e way we see. Our field of vision is actually much wider/hart tall because of our peripheral vision. Not only is it closer to the way we see, but the pictures are crisper and cleaner with more detail in/he close-up and panoramic views.

4:3 Aspect Ratio

Digital Signal and Sound

The analog television broadcast system that has been used in the United States fbr the past 50 years transmits signals as electronic waves. These waves can suffer degradation as/he signal _avels to your home. Additionally, /he analog waves are susceptible to interl_rence from planes passing overhead, weather, and household appliances.

Digital signals, in con_ast to analog signals, can be reproduced precisely because/he images are transmit/ed and received using the computer language of ls and 0s. Such precision yields a signal that is capable of displaying studio-quality picture and Dolby Digital 5.1 channel sound.

Part 3: Other Key Features of owning an RCA Scenium HDTV

There are other HDTVs on the market-even some that use DLP technology.

But your RCA Scenium HDTV has been designed with features that will enhance your "IV viewing, and fbatures that provide flexibili/y to build on the digital revolution that is taking place. A summary of your TV's most unique features fbllows.

Chapter 3 provides more detail about these f_atums and inl_Jrmation about additional t_atums.

Integrated HDTV Tuner with QAM

RCA was the first to offer an integrated tuner with its HDTVs (no need fbr a set-top box to receive digital programming).

Now, we've gone one better-your HDTV's tuner is ready fbr digital cable (no need fbr a cable box to view unscrambled, digital cable, programming).

The tuner is able to decode all 16 fbrmats of digital television broadcasts and it can interpret digital cable signals because it includes the ability to decode QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) encoded programming.

How to Connect: TV + Router via the HDTV's ETHERNET Jack

The illustration above provides you with a general connection to the TV's ETHERNET jack so you can maximize your

HDTV's browser to surf the Internet.

You don't need to connect a computer to the router to surf the Intemet.

A computer is only needed if you want to view photos or graphics stored on your computer on your l_V screen.

An Internet Selwice

Provider subscription is necessary to access the intemet.

You should

know:

• Only use the Ethernet connection, if"you are connecting a router to the TV's ETHERNET jack.

• The router must have DHCP capabili)y.

• Only use this connection if you have purchased/he keyboard designed lk)r this HDTV (page 58 has ordering infbrmation) because a keyboard is needed to el_k_ctively surf" the Internet via your HDTV's internal web browser.

• You'll need to use the manuals that accompany your router and other lnternet components fi)r specific ins)ructions.

A router enables you to network several components, such as a compute_; cable modem, or DSL modem.

You will need to set up each component that is connected to the router. See/lie manuals flint came with/lie router and/lie components you are connecting lk)r specific instructions.

To connect the router to the "IV, use a CAT 5 cable (not provided) to connect the ETHERNET Input Jack on the back of your

HDTV to the ETHERNET Output Jack on/lie router.

The complexi)y of the setup required to make all of the components and the router work wi/h your HDTV depends upon your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Most ISPs will automatically fill in the inlk)rmation needed during setup, but if you are asked for specific information while setting up/lie router and other components you will need to contact your ISP.

Hub Connection

How to Connect: TV + DTVLink and/or IEEE-1394 Components

Two connection methods when connecting IEEE-1394 and DTVLink components are: component-to-component or hub. The component-to-component method is each component connected in a chain-like fashion, one to the o/her with the first component in the chain connected to the Dl_VLink jack on the "IV. The hub method is basically the same but using both

1394 jacks with two chains of components connected.

Your TV is a con_ol center t_)r the connected compatible components, automatically recognizing each component and placing it in the Input list.

Note: If you've tuned to a 1394 input, you can control some basic transport functions on the component like RECORD,

Three types of 1394 connector,s are available on 1394 components; 4-pin connector (no power); 6-pin connector (with power) and 6-pin connector (without power supplied).

Your HDTV has a 6-pin connector (wi/hout power supplied).

Both the 4-pin and 6-pin connectors are capable of sending digital audio, digital video, and digital control signals back and tbrth between components.

In addition, the 6-pin connector is capable of sending low voltage electrical powei: If you should have some components with 4-pin connectors, 4-to-6 pin adapter cables are available from your local elec_onic stores.

You should know:

• Connect your 1394 components to either DTVLink (1394) jack.

• Only compatible 1394 components are to be connected to the DTVLink (1394) inpu//output jack.

• Do not loop the 1394 components back to the "IV. That is, each 1394 connection chain should have only one connection point to/he TV, or/he network might not work.

• Place the slower components at the end of the chain and the faster ones closest to the TV in the chain t_Jr thster communication speed.

See component's manual tkJr 1394 network speed.

• The TV can't decode DV t_Jrmat of some camcorders, but it can decode/accept MPEG2 t_Jrmat from some camcorders.

Note: The TV sends audiolvideo through the 1394jack (labeled DTVLink) only to a component that enforces video

copy protection.

(not provided)

Digital Visual Interfbce is a specification created hy/he Digital Display Working Group to support analog and digital signals on a single interlace.

This uncompressed digital vide() interface is hecoming more prevalent and is expected to hecome widely used l_)r digital display components.

The idea hehind the connector is that it could eventually replace the 15-pin VGA connector in c(msumer electronic components.

There are three dilI)rent DVI formats: DV1-A tk)r analog signals, DV1-D tk)r digital signals, and

DVI-I fbr integrated signals (both analog and digital).

Your TV has a DV1-D tk)rmat connector and supports some digital signals. "ll_e fbmlat is used for direct digital connections between source video and provides a higher-quality image than analog. It eliminates the analog conversion process and improves the connection.

You should know:

A DVI cable has a 15 t_et (5 meters) distance limitation.

Explanation of Input Jacks and Cables

This section describes the jacks and cables you might use to make connections (cables may be ordered separately by using the order form on page 85). There are several ways to connect components to your TV.

Difl_rent jacks and cables provide a different level of perfkmnance.

It's important to remember the different degrees of picture improvement for comparison.

The component jacks are considered an excellent improvement; S-Video and composite jacks are considered very good, while connecting components with the antenna RF connection is good.

DTVLink® (Digital Television Link) Connectors

1-)TVLink uses a fbrmat better known to some as IEEE-1394 or FireWire®.

DTVLink is a compressed digital video input/output ofl:ering an IEEE 1394-type connection that meets/lie CEA specifications.

This connection is a high-speed and inexpensive way of interconnecting 1394 compliant consumer electronic components.

If your 1394 component has the DTVLink logo on it, it should work with/llis "IV. You can use eidmr or both connectors to link your components but don't connect the components in a loop.

Notes: Audio and video information

is carried on a single wire.

The TV outputs audio/video through the 1394jack (labeled DTVLink) only

to a component that enforces video copy protection.

Digital Audio Out Jack and Optical Cable

The optical cable is used to connect an audio receiver with Dolby Digital or

PCM (Pulse-Code Modulation) audio receiver to your "IV. If you own a receiver that uses an optical cable input, you can use an optical cable to connect the TV to that receiver tk)r the best sound quality.

Note:

This TV's optical digital output jack fully complies with the international standard governing

this type of jack (IEC958), and is

designed for connection to a Dolby Digital

(AC-3 _ or PCM) receiver or

Dolby Digital

Component Video (Y.Pb*Pr) Jacks and Cables

The Y, Pb, Pr jacks allow you to connect a component, such as a DVD player.

This connection provides excellent picture quality because the video is separated into three signals. To ensure maximum picture quali/y, use three video-grade cables tbr tile connection.

Note: Also, remember to connect the left and right audio cables because

the Y.Pb.Pr cables carry only the picture signal, not the sound.

S-Video Jacks and Cables

The S-Video (separate video) jacks provide better picture quality than die regular video jacks because the color (chrominance, also called chroma) part of die signal is separated from the black and white (luminance) part of the picture.

If a component you're connecting to your "IV (like a DVD player) has an

S-VIDEO jack and composite video, connect the component to the "IV with an

S-Video cable (not provided) tbr a better quali_y picture.

Note: Remember to connect the left and right audio cables because the

S-Video cable carries only the picture signal, not the sound.

Composite Audio/Video

Jacks and Cables (RCA-type)

These jacks are used tbr most audio/video connections between components.

The audio/video iacks are olden color coded (yellow fbr video, red fbr right audio, and white fbr left audio). This is also called composite video.

Note: If your component has only one output for audio (mono), connect it

to the left (white L/Mono) audio jack on the TVand don't connect the

right (red) audio part of the cable.

RF Jacks and Coaxial Cables (F-type)

t@' iacks are primarily used fl_r reception of off'air broadcasts and cable signals

(possibly older VCRs or cable boxes).

The RF and coaxial iacks on the "IV are labeled ANTENNA A INPUT and ANTENNA B INPUT.

G-LINK wands

How to Find the Remote Sensor

You have to place the G-LINK wands in front of the remote sensor on the VCR and/or cable box.

Some cable boxes and gcRs have the remote sensor labeled on the unit. If"|he remote sensor isn't labeled on your VCR and/or cable box, you need to use the remote control that came wi/h the

VCR and/or cable box to locate the sensor.

1.

Turn off the VCR and/or cable box.

2.

Hold/he remote control (not the one that came with your TV, but the one that came with/he cable box and/or VCR to which you're attaching the G-LINK cable) so that it is touching the front of the component.

3.

Slowly move the remote control across the front of the component (VCR or cable box) while you press/he power button on and o1_ You must press and release the power button each time you move the remote (holding down the button won't work).

4.

When |he component turns on, you've located the VCR's or cable box's remote sensor.

Tips

If you have both a VCR and a cable box, it doesn't matter which wand is connected to which box_

If you don't have both a cable box and a VCR connected

to your T_,

just coil the cable of the

extra G-LINK wand with a

twist tie and leave it

behind the T_

Placing the G-LINK Wands

Place the G-LINK wands in front of the remote sensor on your VCR and/or cable box approximately one inch away from the remote sensor (see below).

What to Expect

The next time you turn on your TV al_er setting up/he GUIDE Plus+ system, the guide will appear on/lie screen. The tk)llowing examples explain what you might see:

• If all of tile program inlk)rmation has been sent to your "IV, the GUIDE Plus+ system appears with all of your TV program listings.

• If/he program inlk_rmation hasn't been sent to your "IV yet, an ou/line of the GUIDE

(without TV program listings) will appear on the semen. Program information is usually sent to your "IV at night.

• If morn than one cable company services your area, you may be prompted with a Channel

Mapping screen after the first GUIDE Plus+ system download.

You will need to identify your cable company by selecting/he correct channel numbers t_Jr/lie stations in question.

Features of/lie GUIDE Plus+ system are explained in Chapter 3.

To clear/lie guide from your semen, press CLEAR or GUIDE on/lie remote control.

Changing Channels

1-)epending upon the type of signals you have connected to your HDTV, you might notice/hat

/lie channels change slower than you're used to. This is perfk_ctly normal. Your HDTV is able to interpret and display both analog (NTSC) and digital (ATSC) signals and the digital subchannels

(when available).

Also, you may notice that the size of/lie Channel Banner changes as you scan

/llrough analog and digital channels.

Turning the TV On and Off

Your H1-)TV is equipped with a lamp system that is part of the technology that enables us to design such a thin, light-weight "IV with a crisp, bright picture. To prolong the life of the lamp,

/lie TV must properly warm up and cool down. Themlk)re, the "IV doesn't turn off"completely right away-it lades from blue to black. In case you accidentally turn o1_"/lie TV, you can still turn it on while the screen is blue. Once the screen goes black, the lamp's cool-down cycle begins (you may hear a slight humming noise as the lamp cools down).

If you tiT to turn on the

TV during the cool-down cycle, the power light on the front of the l_V will blink to alert you that you need to wait (when the cool-down cycle is complete_-about on automatically).

30 seconds--the TV turns back

Next Steps

Now that you've finished/he Assisted Setup, you're ready to watch l_V. This might be a good time to program your remote control. The remote control/liar came with/his "IV can be programmed to operate other components.

The Learning

Feature

Before using the learning feature, make sure this TV's remote control is programmed to control other components you have connected to the "FV.Programming

the remote control erases all learned commands for that component mode.

Alter you program the TV's remote control to operate the other component, the TV's remote provides most of the operations you need.

However,

there

may be some fimctions on the component's original remote control that your TV's remote control doesn't have.

For example, your

DVD remote control might have a ZOOM button that enables you to enlarge the picture, but your

"IV remote doesn't have that button.

The learning l;eature enables you to record the fianctionality of a specific button from the original remote control to one of the TV's remote control buttons.

Note:

All learned functions for a mode can be erased if you program a different component to that mode.

Up to 2 inches apart

Adding a Learned Function

There are several things to consider belk)re you begin the learning process:

• You can't record a learned function to the fkJllowing buttons on the "FV's remote control: component

• Before adding a Learned Function, you must program this TV's remote control to operate that component because programming/he remote control erases all learned commands for that component mode.

• Do the learning process in low light areas because too much natural light or fluorescent light might cause the learning lkmture to fail because the remote control functions are recorded

(learned) by sending infrared (IR) signals.

• The TV's remote and the original remote should be no more than 2 inches apart.

In order to record (learn) a fimction t¥om one remote to/he other, you must make sure the

Infi'ared (IR) transmitter of the original remote is t;acing the IR receiver on/he top of the laT's remote (see illustration).

To accomplish this, you may have to hold a remote in each hand instead of laying both on the table.

The learned buttons are mode specific--if you add a button function from your DVD player's remote control, you must press the DVD button fii:st before the learned fimction will work (in

"IV mode, the button where you've stored the learned timction will continue to work as it always has).

(A/V receiver) or amplifier, but you want to use the TV's remote con_ol to operate/he volume tbr a component/hat is connected to/he audio/video receiver. An example tbllows:

Let's say you've connected your DVD player to your audio/video receiver.

You've also programmed your TV remote control to operate your DVD player. Since/he DVD player gets its volume/hrough the audio/video receiver, you would have to bounce back and tbrth between two remote controls: the A/V receiver's remote to adjust the volume and the TV's remote con_ol to operate the DVD playei:

The Volume Punchthrough f_atum eliminates the need fbr you to use two remote controls and saves a button press when you're using the "IV remote to adiust the volume.

In efl;ect, you are telling the "IV remote to retrieve and send volume commands from the a/v receiver whenever/he l_V remote is in DVD mode.

Themlbre, after you've successfully set up the Volume Punchthrough ligature, whenever the "IV remote is in DVD mode (press the DVD button) and you want to adiust the volume, you only have to press the VOL + or VOL- buttons.

About the Channel Banner

The Channel Banner appears when you press/he TV or INFO button on the remote.

If an icon in the channel banner is grayed out (dim), the fi:atum is not available.

The tbllowing list describes the items on the Channel Banner screen (left to right and top to bottom).

Other displays that are not described here are self-explanatory.

Note: You may notice the size of the channel banner changes when you change channels. This is perfectly normal and

occurs because analog (NTSC)broadcasts and digital (ATSC)broadcasts use different formats. Your HDTV can display

both types and adjusts the picture accordingly.

The icons change appearance to show tile item's status or availability.

Digital or Analog TV Channels

A single ollLair antenna can pick up both analog and digital channels.

Digital channels can be made up of primary channels and subchannels.

Note:

Subchannels (sometimes called minor channels) are channels associated with the

Primary channel (sometimes called the major channel). A primary

channel may have just one

subchannel

or multiple

subchannels.

Tip"

Use the channel banner to determine whether a channel is digital or analog_ A digital (ATSC) channel has a dash and second number after it (e.g., 21-1); an analog channel doesn't (e.g., Ch 21).

Tip

If a digital and analog channel have the same primary channel number,

tune m the analog

channel by entering the analog channel number or entering the analog channel number and then a subchannel

of "0. "

1,

Make sure the "IV is in I_V mode by pressing TV on the remote control.

2.

Enter tile primary channel number (up to three digits). This number appears in the primai T channel entl T box.

Press OK or wait a t_w seconds.

If"you don't enter a subchannel, the "IV tunes to the lowest subchannel.

5.

,

If the primary channel number has t_wer/han throe digits and you want to enter subchannel numbers, press the right arrow button to advance to the subchannel entry box.

Enter the number of/he subchannel.

This number appears in the subchannel entry box.

Press OK to tune to the channel or wait a fi:w seconds.

Notes:

You can always use the channel up and down buttons

on the

remote control to change channels within

the TV mode.

You may notice the size of the channel banner

changes when you change channels.

This is perfectly normal

and occurs because analog

(NTSC) broadcasts and digital (ATSC) broadcasts use different formats.

Your HDTV can display both types and adjusts the picture accordingly.

If you wait too long before entering the subchannel, the TV tunes to the lowest subchannel.

How V-Chip Works for the USA and Canada

The V-Chip software reads a code that most broadcasters send with programs.

That code tells the "IV sofiware the program's age-based rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc.) and content themes [(Violence (V), Adult Language (L), etc.)]. If you have blocked/he rating and/or content/heroes/hat the program contains and the l_V is locked and you tune to a program whose rating exceeds the rating limit you set, you will receive a message telling you that the program is not approved tbr viewing.

Broadcasters are not required to provide conten_ themes, so programs received with no content/heroes will only be blocked if you block/heir age-based rating and the TV is locked. You can also block out programs/hat have been given a rating of "Not Rated," or "Exempt" and programs that are COl'Lsidered "unrated" with the V-Chip

Unrated menu. The "IV age-based ratings and content/heroes you can block are in the table on/he next page.

Using the PIP Feature

The PIP t;eature is only available fbr analog (NTSC) channels.

PIP won't work when tuned to a digital (ATSC) channel.

Use

/he channel banner to determine whether a channel is digital or analog. A digital (ATSC) channel has a dash and second number after it (e.g., 21-1); an analog channel doesn't (e.g., Ch 21). While you may use PIP in difl_emnt ways, this basic PIP scenario should get you started. When watching an analog channel, fbllow these steps.

1.

Press/he PIP button on the remote control.

The PIP window appears on the screen and Channel Cont_'ol is automatically set to the PIP window.

2.

Use the channel up and down or number buttons to change the PIP channel.

3.

To change the program in the main picture window, press CH CTRL. Then use the channel up and down or number buttons.

To go back and tk_rth between controlling/he PIP window and the main picture, press the CH CTRL button.

PIP Problems?

• If"you are channel surfing and the PIP disappeai_s, you may have tuned to a digital channel.

To view PIP and the main picture, make sure that both/he main and PIP channels are analog inputs, or signals. Continue changing/he channel until you find an analog (NTSC format) channel.

The PIP window will reappear.

The message "PIP Not Viewable

or Exceeds Rating" in the

channel banner

lets you know that PIP is not available on this channel and you should tune to another channel.

If you press PIP and the PIP window is gray, you may have activated the Parental Control f)ature and/he program exceeds the rating limits you set. For information on removing limits, see the section "Parental Controls."

You cannot view closed captioning in the PIP window.

PIP channel skips all digital (ATSC) "IV channels and tunes to analog channels.

PIP cannot be displayed from component (Y•Pb-Pr) inputs.

A typical

use of SWAP is to scan through channels in the PIP window, and when you find a channel

you like, press SWAP to display that channel

in

the main picture.

1394 Recording

The 2-way 1394 DTVLink iacks enable you to connect a compatible Audio/Video Hard Disk Drive

(AVHDD) and/or a Digital VCR (DVCR) so you can record and play digital content.

The recommended AVHDD component is model DVR10, available at your local RCA dealer or www.rca.com.

The DVR10 is an IEEE-1394 hard disk drive that includes time-shili l;eatures, such as recording and pausing TV (digital signals only).

You should

know:

Only digital content can be recorded.

Analog "IV programs cannot be recorded through the TV's 1394 jack.

You can only record content if the IEEE-1394 component connected enfbrces copy protection standards (check your DVCR or AVHDD manual).

When tile "IV is tuned to/he 1394 input channel and the remote is in

the 1W mode, you can use the remote tk)r some basic transport controls, such as RECORD, STOP, FAST FORWARD, REVERSE, PAUSE, and PLAY.

Don't change channels when you are recording because recording will automatically stop. However, you can tune to one of the TV's

Video Input Channels (fbr instance, if you want to watch a DVD or videotape/hat's in a DVD player or VCR/hat you connected to your

"lW).

A dialogue box appears when you press the RECORD button to let you know/he 1394 component is recording/he channel that you selected.

You can select a default recording preference: record all subchannels on a major channel or record only a specific subchannel.

Recording just the subchannel saves space on/he AVHDD. Also, a DVCR may not be able to record more/han one subchannel because of/he DVCR's data rate.

However, if you're recoMing to an AVHDD or DVCR and choose to recoM only to a specific subchannel, you may see a blank screen when playing back at first. You'll need to use the CH+ or CH- button to go through the subchannels belBre you get to the subchannel you recorded.

This happens because/he data of all the subchannels is recorded, but not the content--only content (or complete signal) tk)r the specified subchannel is recorded.

the

The program name, channel, track number, DTVLink-model name, and elapsed time liJr 1394 recordings appear in the channel banner (some inlk)rmation only available tk3r AVHDD and not tiJr DVCR).

To access llle channel bannei, press INFO on the remote con_ol.

For the instant replay and pressing the right arrow skips ahead on an AVHDD.

To do a 1394 timer recording, schedule it through the Record/Walae Timer screen. Once the timed recording is set up, the "IV automatically makes a timed 1394 recording if the channel is digital, no matter what signal source is selected.

The recording takes place every day tk3rthe duration that is selected in the Record/Wake

menu.

Set up 1394 Recording Preferences

To successfully record digital content via the 1394 1-)TVLink Input/Output Jack, you need to set up the 1394 Recording screen.

2.

Go to the 1394 Setup menu.

Highlight

1394 Recording,

and press the OK button (only 1394 components that are capable of recording appear).

If you have morn than one 1394 recording component, you need to pick the 1394 default recording component (i.e., the component which records when you press RECORD on the remote or set up a Record/Wake

Timer).

.

If you have an AVHDD connected, put a check in the box fi)r auto tuning because auto tuning lets you see/he digital channel being recorded and you can use instant replay, pause, etc.

Note:

If you don't check the auto tuning box, pressing RECORD

will only start recording--

it doesn't switch the TV to the 1394 input--you'll need to use the INPUT button to channel through the inputs.

Video and audio are out of sync

if your TV is connected to an audio/video (A/V) receiver or borne theatre system via the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack, read the following information.

if you've connected a component to your A/V receiver, such as a I)VD player or satellite receiver, you may experience a slight delay between the audio beard and the video seen. This occurs because the digital audio is sent directly to the speakers while the video must be processed inside the TV before it is displayed.

• If the component has Component Video (Y, Pb, Pr) jacks, connect these jacks to the TV's Y, Pb, Pr jacks to minimize the discrepancy.

This works best if the component supports Progressive Scan technology.

• If necessary, you can connect the component directly to the 'IW using L/R audio jacks and bypassing the A/V receiver or you can program an audio delay in the A/V receiver so the audio and video match up (not al! audio equipment has the ability to program delays).

Check the Audio/Video Receiver's manual.

The Remote

Control

Doesn't Work

Something might be between the remote and the remote sensor on the component.

Make sure there is a clear path.

Maybe the remote isn't aimed directly at the component (TV or VCR) that you're trying to operate.

Maybe remote is not in 'IW Mode.

Press the 'IW button so the remote controls the 'IW.

Maybe batteries in remote are weak, dead, or installed incorrectly.

If baueries are weak, you will not be able to activate backlighting on tim remote; instead, backlight will blink once when activated.

Put new batteries in the remote.

(Note, if you remove the batteries, you may have to reprogram the remote to operate other components.)

When using the Learning feature, do the learning process in low light areas to prevent natural light and fluorescent light interf_,ring with the inflared signals.
