3. Connecting your own speakers
This TV has been designed to create ‘Virtual Dolby Surround’ without the need for additional speakers. If however, you wish
to experience the full Dolby Pro Logic Surround, you will need to connect your own speakers (SS-CR190 or equivalent) as shown
below. Connect the striped speaker leads to the red terminals and the black leads to the black terminals.
Dolby* Pro Logic Surround normally requires 5 speakers:
Centre Speaker - to anchor the fixed sounds, like dialogues, to the screen.
Left and Right Front Speakers - for the normal two channel stereo or bilingual broadcasts.
Surround Speakers - for the special effects created by the surround channels.

Connecting a VCR
To record and playback digital programmes you must connect your VCR to the H socket
using a scart lead (the VCR relies on the TV to convert digital programmes to signals suitable
for recording, which are then output from the TV via the scart socket).
To record analogue programmes on the VCR, connect your external aerial to the upper socket
marked
on the TV, then connect a lead from the RF input of the VCR to the lower aerial
socket marked
on the TV.
Note: If you have set the Auto 16:9 feature to ‘On’ (see page 14), any digital recording made
from the H socket will not detect the 16:9 mode, and during playback the picture will be
displayed in the mode you previously selected from the ‘Format’ options.
