• How to Use the Installation Features
• Connection Options for Accessory Devices
our TV has two separate
ANT(enna)/cable inputs
on the back of the set. These
two signal inputs offer convenient hookup options for both
normal TV program viewing
and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)
features.
Connect a cable TV
signal to a 75-ohm two-way
signal splitter (an optional
accessory).
Or
Connect an outdoor or
indoor antenna signal to the
75-ohm two-way signal splitter. If your antenna has flat
twin-lead wire (300 ohm), you
must first attach the antenna
wires to the screws on a 300to 75-ohm adapter before connecting to the two-way signal
splitter.
Connect two lengths of
RF coaxial cable to the two
output plugs on the two-way
signal splitter. The two lengths
of RF coaxial cable must have
F-type connectors (screw-on or
push type) on their ends.
Run Auto Program to store
in the TV’s memory only the
channels with active broadcast stations. See page 5 for
details.

antenna.
You can treat the
output connection of a satellite receiver as you would a
standard antenna or cable TV
signal, except the satellite
signal should not be split as
shown in the illustration to
the right. The satellite signal
should go directly into the
ANT(enna) “A” input connection on the back of the
TV. Then, if you would like,
use the PIP ANT(enna) “B”
input connection for either
an outdoor/indoor antenna or
cable TV signal. Refer to the
owner’s manual for the satellite box to get further information on connections.
Back of TV
The ANT(enna) “A” input is
intended for use and viewing
on the TV’s main screen. Your
home’s primary antenna or
cable TV signal should be connected to this input for normal
TV setup, use, and feature
operation.
The PIP ANT(enna) “B”
input is a second, or auxiliary,
signal source included for your
TV’s Picture-In-Picture (PIP)
feature. For many homes, the
use of a single existing antenna or cable TV source for both
ANT(enna)“A” and PIP
ANT(enna) “B” will be the
preferred method of connection
(see illustration to the right).
This type of connection
(optional signal splitter
required) will work properly
for the TV’s main on-screen
features, as well as retain all
the features designed for PIP.
For more details on PIP, refer
to pages 49–52 in the
Directions for Use manual that
came with your set.
SMART
HELP
Connect one of the RF
coaxial cables coming from
two-way signal splitter to the
PIP ANT(enna) “B” input on
the back of the TV and the
other RF coaxial cable to the
ANT(enna) “A” input on the
back of the TV.
(The Two-way Signal Splitter
has a single 75-ohm input and
branches to twin 75-ohm outputs.
RF coaxial connecting cables will
be needed for use with the Twoway Signal Splitter.)

NOTE: Proper operation of your TV is not dependent upon the connection of the PIP ANT(enna) “B” input. The main purpose of the
input is to provide an easily connected, dedicated picture source for the PIP feature. You can, however, use the PIP ANT(enna) “B” input to
connect and display other signal sources such as an outdoor or indoor antenna or a video game player.
Although the PIP ANT(enna) “B” input can be used and swapped as the source for the TV’s main picture, certain setup features (such
as AutoChron) are based only on your TV’s detecting a signal at the ANT(enna) “A” input. To ensure that all features are operating properly, you may not want to rely solely on the PIP ANT(enna) “B” input as your TV’s main screen signal source.
Because of continuous product improvements, the information
mentioned in the documents accompanying your product are
subject to change without notice.

UNDERSTANDING AUTOLOCK
he AutoLock feature can help parT
ents censor what their children
watch on TV. AutoLock receives content advisories sent by broadcasters or
other program providers. After you
program AutoLock, it can respond to
the content advisories and block programs that contain content which you
may consider objectionable—offensive
language, violence, or sexual situations.
In this section, you’ll learn how to
block channels and programming that
is not rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You will also find out how to turn
these blocking features on or off.
Following on this page are brief explanations of AutoLock terms and program ratings.
Terms
BLOCKING control—can be thought
of as the “master switch” for
AutoLock. This control affects the settings you have chosen for blocking
programs according to movie ratings
or TV ratings, or for blocking programs that have no rating or are unrated. When the BLOCKING control is
OFF, the blocking or censoring of programs is disabled. When the BLOCKING control is ON, blocking will
occur according to the settings you
have chosen.
BLOCK UNRATED control—if set
to ON, blocks all unrated programs.
Unrated programming consists of the
kind of shows that the MPAA (Motion
Picture Association of America) or the
TV broadcasters have chosen not to
rate.
NO RATING control—if set to ON,
blocks all programming with no content advisory data.
Programming that has No Rating is not
encoded with any rating information
from the MPAA or the Parental
Guidelines. Any programming could
fall into this category.
You can also block individual channels using the BLOCK CHANNEL
control.

TV-Y (All Children)—designed to be appropriate for all children, especially ones ages 2–6. Programs rated TV-Y are
not expected to frighten younger children.
TV-Y7 (Directed to Older Children)—designed for children ages 7 and older. Programs rated TV-Y7 may be more
appropriate for children who have acquired the development skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality. Such programs may include mild fantasy and comic violence (FV).
TV-G (General Audience)—likely to be considered suitable for children of all ages. Such programs have little or no
violence, no strong language, and little or no sexual dialogue or sexual situations.
TV-PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)—contain material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. This
type of programming has one or more of the following: moderate violence (V), some sexual situations (S), infrequent
coarse language (L), or some suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-14 (Parents Strongly Cautioned)—contain material that many parents will find unsuitable for children under 14
years of age. Such programs have one or more of the following: intense violence (V); intense sexual situations (S);
strong, coarse language (L); or intensely suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-MA (Mature Audience Only)—specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for
children under 17. Such programs have one or more of the following: graphic violence (V); explicit sexual situations
(S); or crude, indecent language (L).

infrared remote (IR) controlled
devices such as VCRs, cable TV converter boxes, satellite receivers, DVD
players, and laser disc players.
If you want to use your TV remote to
operate a VCR or other accessory
device, you will need to perform this
initial check explained in this section. You may also need to go to the
sections on the “Direct Access
Method” and the “Search Method”
in the pages that follow.

to the product codes for accessory
devices.
• If you do not enter a complete code
within 30 seconds, you will need to
perform step 1 of the Direct Access
Method again.
• If the procedure explained above
does not work the first time,
repeat the steps using the same
remote code number.
• If you enter more than three digits,
the unit will retain the first three
digits entered.
• If after a second try the remote
does not operate your accessory
device, and more code numbers
are listed for your brand, use the
next listed code number.
• If after repeated attempts the
Direct Access Method does not
allow you to work your accessory
device with your TV remote, try
the Search Method explained on
the next page.

SEARCH METHOD
our TV remote can be set to work
various accessory devices (VCRs,
cable converters, and satellite
receivers, for example) by what is
called the Search Method.
NOTE: The Search Method works
only with devices equipped with
Channel Display Indicators or that
capability. If the Direct Access code
number method (shown in the previous section) did not enable your TV
remote to work your accessory device,
then follow the easy steps listed below.
Please read the steps once before performing them.

Turn on the desired device. Press
and hold down the VCR or ACC
(for an accessory device other than
a VCR) mode button on the TV
remote. Then press and hold down the
SURF button as you hold down the
desired mode (VCR or ACC) button.
NOTE: You must press and hold
down the desired mode (VCR or
ACC) button first and then press and
hold down the SURF button second.
While holding down the SURF
and the desired mode (VCR or
ACC) buttons at the same time,
point the remote toward the accessory device and continue holding the
buttons down.
Watch the Channel Indicator on
your accessory device. Channel numbers will scan up when the TV remote
has identified the correct code for
your accessory device. This may take
several minutes.
Release the mode (VCR or ACC)
and SURF buttons as soon as channel numbers start to scan up. The
scanning means that your TV remote
has found the code for your accessory
device.

• Your TV remote may
locate the accessory device’s
code quickly or require several
minutes to do so.
• Don’t let the accessory device scan
up more than five channels when
the correct code is found—the
remote may pass up the right code
and have to repeat the search
cycle.
• If no channel change happens after
several minutes, repeat steps 1–4.
Then if a channel change still does
not occur, the remote will not
work the desired accessory device.

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) • Basic Connections
USING PIP (BASIC CONNECTIONS)
P
icture-In-Picture (PIP) is the showing of two pictures on the TV screen
at the same time (one main screen picture and one small picture, or PIP). This
TV has two separate inputs (ANT[enna]
“A” and PIP ANT[enna] “B”) for your
home’s Antenna and/or Cable TV system
signals. ANT “A” is referred to on
screen as “TUNER-A,” and PIP ANT
“B” is referred to as “TUNER-B.”
The ANT “A” input is primarily for the
TV’ s main screen picture. The PIP
ANT “B” input is provided as a second
dedicated source option for the TV’s
PIP “window” and its feature operations. The signal connected to the PIP
ANT “B” input can be either a split signal input (as described and illustrated
on this page) or a separate external signal source (such as an additional home
antenna, satellite dish system, or video
accessory device).
See the following steps on how channels
connected to the PIP ANT(enna) “B”
input can be shown and used within the
PIP window.

the two-way signal splitter.
Connect one of the RF coaxial
cables coming from the two-way
signal splitter to the ANT(enna)
“A” input on the back of the set.
Then connect the other RF coaxial
cable coming from the two-way signal splitter to the PIP ANT(enna) “B”
input on the back of the TV.

NOTE: An outdoor or indoor
antenna can be used to receive
normal broadcast channels
2–13 (VHF) and 14–69 (UHF).
NOTE: The purpose of the PIP ANT(enna) “B” input (referred to as “TUNER-B” on
your TV screen) is to provide an easily connected, dedicated signal source for use with
PIP. A split signal (as illustrated on this page) is not the only option in connecting to the
PIP ANT(enna) “B” input. An additional outdoor or indoor antenna or a video game
player, for example, could also be connected and displayed on the TV’s PIP screen window through the use of the PIP ANT(enna) “B” input.

General Information • Glossary
GLOSSARY OF TELEVISION TERMS
Audio/Video Inputs ¥ Connectors (RCA phono-type plug),
located on the back of the TV, used for the input of audio and
video signals. These inputs are designed for use with VCRs (or
other accessories) to receive higher picture resolution and offer
sound-connection options.
Programming ¥ The process of adding or deleting channel numbers in the televisionÕs memory circuits. Through programming,
the TV ÒremembersÓ only the locally available or desired channel numbers and skips over any unwanted channel numbers.
PTV ¥ Projection Television. (Rear- and/or front-projection
design systems are available.)
Closed Captioning ¥ The broadcast standard feature that allows
you to read the voice content of television programs on the TV
screen. Designed to help the hearing impaired, Closed
Captioning uses on-screen text boxes to show dialogue and conversations while a TV program is in progress.
Remote Control Sensor Window ¥ The window or opening
found on the television control panel through which infrared
remote control command signals are received.
Component Video Input ¥ The input that allows the separate
reception of blue, red, and luminance signals. Provides the highest possible color and picture resolution in the playback of digital signal source material, such as the kind available from DVD
players. Allows improved bandwidth information not possible
through composite video (A/V) or S-Video Connections.
RF ¥ Radio Frequency or modulated signal design used as the
carrier for television broadcasts.
Identify ¥ The method by which a TV remote control searches
and finds an operating code for another product (such as a VCR
or a cable converter). After the code has been Òidentified,Ó the
TV remote control can operate and send commands to the other
product.
Second Audio Program (SAP) ¥ An additional audio channel
provided for in the Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) broadcast standard. A monaural soundtrack included within the recorded or video signal (usually containing a second language translation for the displayed programming).
Incredible Stereo (or Surround) ¥ False acoustic management
of the audio signal that produces a dramatic expansion of the
wall of sound that surrounds the listener and heightens overall
viewing pleasure.
Status ¥ Allows the user to quickly confirm what channel number is currently being viewed. Status can also be used to clear
the TV of on-screen displays or information (rather than waiting
for the displays to Òtime out,Ó or automatically disappear from
the screen).
RF coaxial cable ¥ Used to connected a broadcast or cable signal to the TV. Also can be used to connect a VCR to the TV (or
cable box or DBS).
Menu ¥ An on-screen list of feature controls that are available
for you to adjust.
S-Video Input ¥ Signal input that allows direct connection of
high-resolution video sources, such as satellite, DVD (digital
video disc), S (Super)-VHS videocassette recorder, or video
games. Provides improved picture resolution, sharpness, and
clarity.
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) ¥ The broadcast standard that allows for stereo sound to be transmitted with the TV
picture.
TwinÐlead Wire ¥ The more commonly used name for the twostrand, 300-ohm antenna wire used with many indoor and outdoor antenna systems. In many cases, this type of antenna wire
requires an additional adapter (or balun) in order to connect to
the 75-ohm input terminals designed into the more recent TVs
and VCRs.
On-screen Displays (OSD) ¥ The wording or messages generated by the television (or VCR) to help you with specific feature
controls (color adjustment or programming, for example).
Picture-in-Picture ¥ The showing of two pictures on the TV
screen at the same time (one main screen picture and one small
picture, or PIP).
