Home Theatre, not the TV.
Connect only one Home Theatre.
You can connect an <Anynet+> device using the HDMI cable. Some HDMI cables may not support <Anynet+>
functions.
<Anynet+> works when the AV device supporting <Anynet+> is in the Standby or On status.
<Anynet+> supports up to 10 AV devices in total. Note that you can connect up to 3 devices of the same type.

FAQ
What is the difference between HDTV and
SDTV?
PLEASE TRY THE FOLLOWING!
There are various types of digital TVs.
The most widely known types of digital TV are HDTV and SDTV. They are
classified according to the screen quality and the video specifications.
•
HDTV (High Definition TV):High screen quality.
•
SDTV (Standard Definition TV):Common standard digital TV.
An SDTV has an aspect ratio of 4:3 which is the same as that of an Analogue TV. HDTV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 which is similar to a cinema
screen. This provides a much better screen quality than SDTV.
Digital TV broadcasting in our country is ultimately orientated towards
HDTV. (At present, all digital TVs from Samsung Electronics have the 16:9
wide aspect ratio.)
Can I watch HD broadcasting with all digital
TVs?
You can receive all digital broadcasts, whether they are SD or HD, using
any digital TV. However, you cannot enjoy HD programmes, which are the
highest quality digital TV programmes, using an SD digital TV.
(At present, all digital TVs from Samsung Electronics have the 16:9 wide
aspect ratio.)
Can I watch digital TV broadcasting with an
Analogue TV?
No.
Can I use my present antenna to receive digital
broadcasting?
As for existing Analogue TV, digital TV is designed so that digital broadcasting signals are received via both indoor and outdoor antennas.
The Analogue TV cannot interpret digital signals. Therefore, a digital TV is
required to watch digital TV broadcasting.
If signal reception is very good in your environment, you can watch digital
broadcasts with your existing indoor antenna. If not, it is better to install an
outdoor antenna.
