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. 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.

CableCARD and Digital Cable Ready TVs
CableCARD and Digital Cable Ready TVs are the products of a new digital cable standard.
This new standard is called OpenCable and it is a concerted effort to standardize the digital cable
service network interface in North America. For more information, please refer to www.cablelabs.com.
Digital Cable Ready TVs are equipped with a proper digital cable tuner to receive digital cable signals
from your local cable service provider. They are also designed to work with digital cable card modules
(PCMCIA card modules called CableCARDs). These PCMCIA card modules or CableCARDs will be
provided by your local cable service provider after a proper subscription process.
The provided CableCARD from your local cable service provider needs to be inserted into the
CableCARD slot of a Digital Cable Ready TV. Please refer to page 21 for how to insert the CableCARD.
A digital set-top box which used to be provided by the cable service provider is no longer needed with
Digital Cable Ready TVs and CableCARDs.
When CableCARD is inserted into the slot, the TV screen will show the message that CableCARD is
inserted and tries to download necessary data such as channel information or subscription information
from your digital cable service provider. When you insert CableCARD for the first time, this process
may take a few minutes depending on the amount of data your cable provider needs to send.
During this process the digital cable service provider or CableCARD may display messages on the TV
screen to help or give you further information.
Please contact your local cable provider for more information on service availability and how to
acquire a CableCARD.

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.
5. I hear a Clicking sound in standby mode.
You will hear the sound if you have set both ANTENNA (Air) and Cable to “Yes” in the TV Guide
On ScreenTM Setup.
However, do not worry about this since the sound comes from inside your TV while it receives data
for your TV Guide.

Memorizing the Channels
Your TV can memorize and store all of the available channels for both “off-air” (antenna) and cable
channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH/PAGE
and CH/PAGE
buttons
to scan through the channels. This eliminates the need to change channels by entering the channel digits.
There are three steps for memorizing channels: selecting a broadcast source, memorizing the channels
(automatic) and adding and deleting channels (manual).
Selecting the Video Signal Source
Before your television can begin memorizing the available channels,
you must specify the type of signal source that is connected to the TV
(i.e., an antenna or cable system).

Checking the Digital-Signal Strength
Digital
Unlike analog channels, which can vary in reception quality from “snowy” to clear, digital (HDTV)
channels have either perfect reception quality or you will not receive them at all. So, unlike analog
channels, you cannot fine tune a digital channel.
You can, however, adjust your antenna to improve the reception of available digital channels.

Using the D-Net
What’s D-Net?
This refers to a home network consisting of devices supporting D-Net (IEEE1394) connections
(such as digital VCRs and Set-Top Boxes) for digital audio and video data.
The D-Net (IEEE1394) standard for the High Performance Serial Bus is a serial data transfer protocol
and interconnection system.
D-Net (IEEE1394) interface is capable of supporting various high-end digital A/V applications,
such as A/V device control and signal routing, Digital Video (DV) editing, home
networking.
How to connect compatible IEEE1394 Devices
Connecting compatible IEEE1394 devices is simple using this TV equipped with IEEE1394.
A secure digital interface is provided to other digital home entertainment units, such as a DTV,
a Set-Top Box, an AVHDD, a digital VCR, a MPEG Camcorder.
1
Connect the IEEE1394
cable from the jack of the
component with IEEE1394
capability, such as a
Set-Top Box or a Digital
VCR to the IEEE1394 jack
on the TV.
2
Press the D-Net button on the
Remote Control.
3
Select the D-Net (IEEE1394)
Compatible device.
NOTES

Digital VCR (D-VHS)
• To access D-Net (IEEE1394) in the menu, see page 117.
• The IEEE1394 interface is equipped with a copy protection standard called Digital Transmission
Content Protection (DTCP).
• The name of 1394 Jack may be different according to the manufacturer (i.e., DTV LINK or i.LINK).
• The supported video format is MPEG-2 Digital video. Other digital video formats (e.g. DV
format...) are not supported.
For audio, Dolby Digital and MPEG Digital Audio are supported, other digital audio formats
(e.g. MP3, DTS) are not supported.
• Because IEEE1394 is an evolving technology, it is possible that some or all of the connectivity
features of a device you connect to the TV through the IEEE1394 port may not operate.
• There may be a single IEEE1394 jack depending on the specifications of the external device.
• If only a single IEEE1394 jack is supported, connect the cable to the last jack.

Using the D-Net
Connection Options
There are two different connection options for connecting D -Net (IEEE1394) compatible devices.
Select the most suitable option according to your network of audio/video products.
The Direct Device-To-Device Option
D-Net (IEEE1394) permits the chaining of devices, unlike
analog audio and video connections where each device
needs to be individually connected to the TV. This allows
you to connect your D-VHS to your 1394 Set-Top Box
only, then connect the Set-Top Box to the TV.
More IEEE1394 devices can be added to the chain as
needed. Each video device can be viewed on the TV’s
D-Net and information can be sent from any IEEE1394
device to other compatible devices.
DTV STB
Digital VCR
The Hub Connection Option
D-Net (IEEE1394) also permits connecting devices using the TV as a hub. Each device is capable of
sending information, which may include audio and video, to any other device on the network.

4-Pin and 6-Pin Connectors
Two different types of connectors are used for IEEE1394 terminals and cables, a 4-pin and
a 6-pin.
The 4-pin connector sends digital audio, digital video and digital
control signals to and from devices. The TV has two available 4-pin
connection jacks, of which two are at the back.
The 6-pin connector also sends digital audio, video and control
signals, but can also send low voltage electrical power. There are
no 6 pin connectors on this TV.
It is not possible to directly connect a 6-pin connector to a 4-pin jack,
and vice versa. In order to connect a 6-pin device to a 4-pin device,
an adaptor or adaptor cable is required, easily purchased from an
electronic or computer store.
Connecting a 6-pin device (such as a camcorder) directly to the TV, (if it is designed to receive
electrical power from another 6-pin device) will require that the camcorder is directly connected to
the AC supply, or that the camcorder’s battery power is used.

Using the D-Net
Operating Tips
1) When the screen is switched to the TV program.
- When you select the first button, the TV button, in the Device List, it switches to the TV program.
- Although you have selected another device from the Device List, if detecting a video signal from
the device fails, the “Connection failed” message appears and the screen automatically switches
to the TV program.
- When the 1394 connection to the selected device is disconnected, the screen automatically
switches to the TV program. If you reconnect the device, the reconnected device is automatically
selected.
2) AVHDD, DVHS and camcorders automatically stop when you select another device while watching
one of the devices.
3) Some devices may be displayed in the Device List as ‘UNCONTROLLABLE’.
This may happen when the device does not contain the proper information or it cannot read.
4) Some devices may not be recognized and may be disconnected from the 1394 connection when
they are turned off.
5) When connecting another TV, the TV may transmit *Digital TS which appears in the TV or another
picture (e.g. Only RF may be transmitted, although DVHS is being displayed on the screen)
depending on the TV specifications.
* What is Digital TS : DTV packages digital data (video, audio and data) into 188 byte units using
the MPEG-2 algorithm and transmits the data unit unlike for analog. It is called Digital Transport
Stream or Digital TS.
6) When connected to another STB, some STBs may not be displayed in the Device List due to device
specifications or defects when multiple devices are connected.
Even if the device is displayed in the Device List, the connection to the device may fail. Otherwise,
due to STB trouble, the video stream may be stopped while recording, or the recording may fail.
In this case, you have to discover which device is defective by removing the devices one by one.
7) When connected to the AVHDD
- To rotate the AVHDD disc, there may a time delay.
- Some AVHDDs may provide two playbacks or recordings simultaneously. In this case, there
may be two Play icons in the Program List and 2 AVHDD buttons in the Target List.
- If you copy a program from the Program List, the selected AVHDD program is played on the TV
screen and recorded using the device selected from the Target List.
Even if the program reaches its end, the recording device does not stop automatically.
- Some AVHDDs may display the wrong program information after recording, depending on the
situation.
- If AVHDD is recording, the program is automatically played which is currently being recorded,
when it is selected from the Device List. (PVR function)
- For the "Go to recording position" button operation, the difference between recording and play
time must be longer than 30 seconds.
8) When connected to DVHS
- Some devices support an automatic connect function (I-mode). These devices may cause a
malfunction when multiple devices are connected.
- Some DVHS devices may not record properly when multiple devices are connected and the mode
is I-mode.
9) When connected to a camcorder
- Depending on if the camcorder is in Tape or Camera Mode, the control panel changes.
If the camcorder turns off the power (power saving mode), the camcorder may disappear from
the Device List.

6/3/05

Page 121
10) When multiple devices are connected, some devices may appear and then disappear periodically
in the Device List. This is because some devices malfunction when multiple devices are connected.
If this occurs, you have to discover and remove the defective device from the connection by
removing the devices one by one.
11) When multiple devices are connected, the response time may be relatively long when selecting a
device. This may happen when there is a device(s) that malfunctions and degrades the 1394
connection speed.
At this time, some of the functions of AVHDD or DVHS may not work, and the stream connection may
fail. If this occurs, you have to discover and remove the defective device from the connection by
removing the devices one by one.
12) Copy Protection
- You can record a Copy-Free, or Copy-One-Generation screen.
- Although you cannot record a Copy-No-More, or Copy-Never screen, you can view it through
another device.
- If you change the channel to a ‘copy never’ channel while recording a ‘copy free’ channel, the
recording is automatically stopped in some devices. Even if the program was recorded, you will not
be able to view the recorded ‘copy never’ channel. At this time, therefore, the user has to manually
stop the recording.

Using the D-Net
Recording Tips
1) Recording using the Target List while also watching the screen being recorded.
- Check that the AVHDD and DVHS devices are connected.
- Select a source device to be recorded and press the Target button.
- Select a device to be recorded from the Target List.
2) Recording a program in the Program List of AVHDD using another device.
- Select an AVHDD program to be recorded from the Program List and press Copy.

NOTES
• In this case, the selected program is automatically played and displayed on the TV screen and
the target device automatically starts recording.
• Controlling a device with another device's remote control or through manual operation, may cause a
malfunction when controlling a device through the TV. When copying a program, the recording
will not stop automatically when the program reaches its end.
• Although you can make a recording to connected devices regardless of copy protection, you
may not be able to watch the copy-protected recording as the playback picture may be distorted.
• When recording an HD program on cable TV or from satellite, programs on some channels may
not be recorded if the program exceeds the limit of the allowable range of recording devices such
as D-VHS.
• If a recording is in process and another command is issued while the ”Recording...” D-Net Notice
is displayed on the screen, the recording may fail.
Tips on stopping recording
1) In general, you can instantly evaluate the current recording device through the Target List. If you
select a device that you wish to stop, a message appears asking if you really want to stop recording.
2) For DVHS. If you select a recording DVHS from the Device List, a message appears asking if you really
want to stop recording.
3) For AVHDD, if the program currently being recorded is selected, you can stop the recording using the
Recording stop button.
NOTE
• Controlling a device through another device or through a manual operation may cause a malfunction
when controlling a device through the TV.

Some supported devices may display as
“UNCONTROLLABLE” due to an initialization error.
➔ If a device is supported but is displayed as
“UNCONTROLLABLE”, reconnect the 1394 cable.
If this does not work, this is because the
information about the device is unreadable due
to an internal error.
A connected device is not
displayed in the device list.
A device, which has experienced an error
during initialization, may malfunction and affect the
operation of other connected devices. Other devices

connected due to limitations of some connected
devices.
➔ Check that the 1394 cable is making a loop and
reconnect the 1394 cable.
Check that cables are correctly connected to all
connected devices.
This message may appear due to an operating
error of the 1394 port of a particular device.
“Connection is failed.
Exceeds the limit of 1394 network
connection.” message appears.
IEEE 1394 supports a limited number of screen
connections. This message appears when the limit has
been exceeded.

Replacing the Lamp
• Why do I need to replace the lamp?
The lamp used in a DLP TV has a limited lifespan. For the best screen quality it needs to be
replaced periodically. After replacing the lamp, the screen quality will be bright and clear as new.
• When do I need to replace it?
It should be replaced when the screen becomes darker, less clear or when all three LEDs on the
front (TIMER, LAMP, & STAND BY/TEMP) are flashing.
• Check before lamp replacement
1. The lamp must be the same code number and type.
2. The lamp type is indicated on the side of the TV. It is also indicated on the lamp case.
3. After checking the code number for the lamp, give the code number to the store where you
purchased the TV or to a Samsung Service center.
• Caution
1. Replace with the correct code numbered lamp to avoid damage to the TV.
2. Turn the power off and wait for 30 minutes before replacing the lamp as it will be hot.
3. Do not touch the glass part of the lamp with your bare hands and do not insert any foreign
object inside the cover as it may cause poor screen quality, electric shock or fire.
4. Do not place the old lamp near flammable objects or within the reach of children.
5. Be sure to connect this TV directly to an AC wall outlet. If the TV's AC plug is connected to a
cable box or other source, it will not allow for proper cool down time.

Problem
Possible Solution
The visual quality of 1080p will
appear the same as for other DTV
resolutions.
This TV receives a signal input and converts the signal
into 1080p through signal processing.
Although the resolution of this TV is 1920 x 1080, to
watch TV with a higher visual quality and sharpness
than a conventional TV, you can watch TV in a better
visual quality when the input signal resolution is
1080p.
I want to view the clearest picture
on the TV in 1080p resolution.
The best visual quality is supported for 1080p input
signal.
➔ To view TV in the best visual quality of 1080p,
connect to a PC whose graphic output is WUXGA
(1920 x 1080).
The visual qualities of digital
channels vary.
The visual qualities of digital channels may vary
depending on the original production method (analog
or digital).
➔ Classification by the information displayed when
switching channels.
➔ If the original production method is digital: High
visual quality program.
➔ If the original production method is analog: The
digital program displayed on the screen is
originally an analog program which has been
converted. The visual quality is of an SD grade.
Although the TV caption shows HD,
the visual quality is not satisfactory.
The HD caption that appears when switching channels
or when pressing the Information button on the remote
control means the selected channel is simply a digital
channel. If the broadcasting station converts an
analog signal into digital and transmits the signal, the
visual quality may not be perfect.
(Applied to Set Top Box built-in model only.)
• The display panel used for the DLP TV is composed of many tiny pixels.
These pixels may occasionally appear on the screen.

Cleaning and Maintaining Your TV
With proper care, your TV will give you many years of service. Please follow these guidelines to
get the maximum performance from your TV.
Placement
• Do not put the TV near extremely hot, cold, humid or dusty places.
• Do not place the TV near appliances with electric motors that create magnetic fields, such as
vacuum cleaners.
• Keep the ventilation openings clear; do not place the TV on a soft surface, such as cloth or
paper.
• Place the TV in a vertical position only.
Liquids
• Do not handle liquids near or on the TV. Liquids that spill into it can cause serious damage.
Cabinet
• Never open the cabinet or touch the parts inside.
• Wipe your TV with a clean, dry cloth. Never use water, cleaning fluids, wax, or chemicals.
• Do not put heavy objects on top of the cabinet.
• This DLP TV projects the image onto a large screen by applying an optical system.
If you place the TV set face down, it might cause a problem because dirt, or some other
contaminant may become attached to the inside of the TV set.
Temperature
• If your TV is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place, unplug the power cord, and allow
at least two hours for moisture that may have formed inside the unit to dry completely.
Using Your TV in Another Country
If you plan to take your TV with you to a foreign country, please be aware of the different
television systems that are in use around the world. A TV designed for one system may not work
properly with another system due to differences in the TV channel frequencies.
