as the Magic Remote Control.
yyThe Magic Remote Control may be damaged
or may malfunction if it is dropped or receives a
heavy impact.
yyTake care not to bump into nearby furniture or other people when using the Magic Remote Control.
yyManufacturer and installer cannot provide service
related to human safety as the applicable wireless
device has possibility of electric wave interference.
yyIt is recommended that an Access Point (AP) be
located more than 1 m away from the TV. If the
AP is installed closer than 1 m, the Magic Remote
Control may not perform as expected due to frequency interference.

Digital channels have a Physical, Major, and Minor
channel number. The Physical number is the actual
digital channel number, the Major is the number that
the channel should be mapped to, and the Minor is
the sub-channel. Since the ATSC tuner automatically
maps the channel from the Major / Minor number,
the Physical number is not required when sending a
command in Digital.
