look like this, see “Antennas with
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads” below.
If your antenna has one lead that looks
like this, see “Antennas with 75-ohm
Round Leads” on page 7.
If you have two antennas, see “Separate
VHF and UHF Antennas” on page 7.
Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads
If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has
300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.

What is HDMI?
• HDMI, or high-definition multimedia interface, is a next-generation interface that enables the transmission
of digital audio and video signals using a single cable without compression.
• “Multimedia interface” is a more accurate name for it especially because it allows multiple channels of
digital audio (5.1 channels).The difference between HDMI and DVI is that the HDMI device is smaller in
size, has the HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) coding feature installed, and supports
multi-channel digital audio.
* Each external input source device has a different back panel configuration.
* When connecting an external device, match the color of the connection terminal to the cable.

channels.
