Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use
liquid or aerosol cleaners.
• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such
additions can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
• Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as
near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the TV. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and cart with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the
unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with slots in the cabinet for
ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings with any object, and
do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near
a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or bookcase, ensure that
there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the manufacturer’s instructions for
mounting.
• Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer
or local power company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.

• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked on
or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity of
overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to keep
from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric
shock.
• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous voltage points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the TV, be sure the antenna or
cable system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about
proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge
unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna
discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.

Important Warranty Information
Regarding Television Format
Viewing
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on
them should primarily be in the standard 4:3 ratio format and constantly moving.
Displaying stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the dark top and bottom
letterbox bars (wide screen pictures), should be limited to no more than 15% of the total
television viewing per week.
Wide screen format televisions (16:9, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view wide screen format full-motion video. The images displayed
on them should primarily be in the wide screen 16:9 ratio format, or expanded to fill the
screen if your model offers this feature, and constantly moving. Displaying stationary
graphics and images on screen, such as the dark side-bars on non-expanded standard
format television video and programming, should be limited to no more than 15% of the
total television viewing per week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market reports,
video game displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics and patterns, should
be limited as described above for all televisions. Displaying any stationary images that
exceed the above guidelines can cause uneven aging of picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle,
but permanent burned-in ghost images in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or
dark bars. On television models that offer picture sizing features, use these controls to
view the different formats as a full screen picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. Uneven
CRT aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is
not covered by your Samsung limited warranty.

A Guide to Digital TV
What is Digital Television?
Digital television (DTV) is a new way of transmitting high quality video and audio to
your TV set. Using DTV, broadcasters can transmit high definition TV (HDTV) images,
Dolby digital surround audio, and new services such as multicasting (transmitting more
than one program on the same TV channel) and datacasting (providing electronic program guides and interactive television).
Several of these services can be combined into a single digital broadcast.
Digital Television Services
Digital Picture Quality
DTV programs are transmitted in two different formats. The first is Standard Definition
Television (SDTV) and the second is High Definition Television (HDTV).
SDTV program formats include 480-line interlaced (480i) and 480-line progressive
(480p) video. 480i programs are essentially a digital version of our current analog TV
programs, while the 480p format offers improved image detail over 480i. Some 480p
programs are broadcast in widescreen and are comparable to progressive-scan DVD
movies in image quality.
HDTV program formats include 1080-line interlaced (1080i) and 720-line progressive
(720p). Both HDTV formats are always broadcast in widescreen, and offer much higher
picture quality than SDTV.
Dolby Surround Sound
With DTV, you can listen to a variety of Dolby digital audio formats from Dolby
Surround 2.0 to Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, using your home audio system. Many
HDTV programs are now broadcast with DD 5.1 soundtracks.
Interactive Communications and Datacasting
DTV will allow you to interact with your television; choosing programs from a detailed
program guide, ordering products on-line while watching TV, and accessing ancillary
data about a program.

How to View Digital Television
There are three ways to watch DTV. The first is to use an integrated digital TV; one with
a built-in digital television tuner. The second is to connect an external DTV set-top
receiver to a DTV-ready television or monitor. This type of TV or monitor will have
wideband component video and stereo audio inputs. You can also watch DTV signals
with personal computer (PC) tuner cards and computer monitors.
1. Integrated TVs versus DTV-ready TVs and monitors
The advantage of an integrated DTV set is that it can tune both analog and digital TV
channels at the same time. All you'll need to do is add an external antenna and you are
ready to watch DTV.
However, integrated DTV sets are not as common as DTV-ready TVs and monitors.
If you already own a DTV-ready TV with component video inputs, you can enjoy DTV
broadcasts by simply adding a low-cost DTV set-top receiver and antenna.
2. Using a personal computer and monitor
There are plug-in cards available that will receive and display DTV broadcasts on your
computer monitor. In addition, many computer monitors will display one or more of
the DTV program formats directly. The most compatible format is 480p, which is similar
to the VGA (640x480 pixel) computer display standard. You may be able to watch DTV
broadcasts by connecting a computer monitor to the 15-pin jack on the rear of the
settop DTV receiver.
NOTE
This television receiver supports the copy protection system regulated by DTLA (Digital
Transmission Licensing Administrator). It should be noted that copy protected content may
not be viewable depending on your particular connections.

Q&A
1. Is the antenna I use for existing TV reception good enough for DTV?
Over-the-air (OTA) digital TV broadcasting uses the same channels as analog TV and
works well with many existing TV antennas. However, DTV broadcast channel assignments are different than analog channels. You should find out whether your local DTV
broadcasts are on VHF (channels 2-13) or UHF (channels 14-69) to see if you need a
different antenna.
If your DTV channels are on UHF and you already get good UHF reception, your present antenna may work fine. The same holds true for VHF DTV reception. Note that
in some markets, both VHF and UHF channels are used for DTV broadcasts.
You can find out the latest DTV channel assignments for your area by browsing selected
Internet web sites such as www.titantv.com , www.10000watts.com, and www.fcc.gov.
2. How difficult is it to receive DTV signals indoors?
This depends on whether your local DTV stations are running full power or not and
how close your location is to the transmission tower. DTV receivers do not require as
much signal as analog TV receivers to produce high-quality images and sound.
Once the DTV signal level exceeds a certain threshold at the receiver, the digital video
and audio data is decoded at the same quality it was originally encoded for broadcast.
This is a big advantage for DTV over analog TV - there is no noise, ghosting, static, or
scratchy audio.
3. How can I connect an antenna in my townhouse, co-operative
apartment, condominium, or apartment?
The Federal Communications Commission's OTARD Rule (part of the
Telecommunications Act of 1996) allows residents of condominiums, townhouse, or
members of neighborhood associations to put up outside antennas for reception of
broadcast TV signals as long as those antennas are not located in common areas and
are no more than 12' in height.
Residents of rental units (apartments, etc) are not covered by the OTARD rules and
will have to use indoor antennas to receive DTV broadcasts. It is possible that the
landlord of an apartment complex can provide broadcast DTV signals via a master TV
antenna system to each apartment.
4. Can I connect my DTV set-top receiver to my cable TV service?
Cable TV systems use a different method for transmitting digital TV programs that is
currently incompatible with broadcast DTV set-top receivers. So you will still need to
use an outdoor or indoor antenna to receive OTA broadcast DTV programs.
The good news is that you won't have to pay a monthly or per-program charge to
watch OTA DTV and HDTV programs. They're free, unlike subscription satellite TV or
premium cable TV. All you need is an antenna and a DTV set-top receiver to enjoy
clear, sharp widescreen images and high-quality audio.
