Technology
CabieCARD
1. Television
TM
Overview
17
Menu
CableCARD is a nationwide system standard that allows
your local cable TV provider to supply you with an access
card customized to your account. This card allows your
TV to receive, decode, and unscramble the premium
digital channels included in your cable TV subscription
without the use of a cable box. When you move to a
new cable provider's area, return the CableCARD to the
original cable provider and get a new card from your new
provider.
Please note that CableCARD is a relatively new technology
and your local cable provider may not currently be offering this service. As time passes, this system will become
broadly supported by most cable providers.
The CableCARD system is unidirectional, meaning your
cable provider can send updates to the TV, but the TV
cannot send signals back. As a result, certain advanced
and interactive digital cable services, such as requests for
video-on-demand
and pay-per-view programs, a cable
operator's enhanced program guide, and data-enhanced
television services may require use of a set-top box
instead. For more information, call your local cable operator.
Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD are
available on the Firewire® IEEE 1394 network and can be
shared by other products on the network. You may be
unable to record or copy some digital programs, however,
because of copy restrictions set by the content or copyright owners.
Using
a CabieCARD
TM
Power on the TV and insert the CableCARD into the
CableCARD slot with the top of the card oriented as indicated by CARD TOP A. When the initial screen displays, write down the information that appears and have it
ready when calling your cable provider.
Sample CableCARD menu
To display the CableCARD menu with links to applications
from your cable provider:
1.

Appendix B for signal compatibility. To hear audio from
the computer, connect analog audio cables from the computer to the PC=DVI AUDIO jacks.
This output sends Dolby Digital or PCM digital audio
to your digital A/V surround sound receiver. Analog
audio from analog channels and devices is converted by the TV to PCM digital audio. If you have
a digital A/V receiver, in most cases this is the only
audio connection needed between the TV and your
A/V receiver.
The PC-DVl input is not intended for standard video from
cable boxes, satellite receivers, or DVD players.

TV Signals and Picture Formats
TV Picture
This is a widescreen TV, also known as a 16:9 TV. This
shape reflects the new types of picture formats available
from HDTV and many DVDs. There are still many older
style narrow-screen picture formats (for example, 4:3
aspect ratio) you will encounter. While there is no perfect
solution for displaying a squarish, narrower image on a
wide screen, Mitsubishi offers several picture formats
from which you can choose.
Standard:
This is the full-screen format. HDTV signals
use this format. This format is useful for displaying
Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratios.
Anamorphic DVDs that have a 2.35:1 aspect ratio are
displayed with black bars at the top and bottom, but show
the entire picture correctly. Narrow (4:3) pictures are
stretched evenly from side to side. Available for all signals.
Note: "Picture format" refers to the aspect ratio or the relative
size/shape of the picture, such as 16:9 or 4:3.
Press FORMAT
on the TV remote control to cycle through the
available picture formats. The last-used format for each
device is used when you return to that device.
Note: in Split Screen mode, the FORMATkey
changes
the picture size on both sides of the screen, but
the aspect ratio (relative height and width} of both
pictures remains the same.
DVD Definitions
Anamorphic (or Enhanced for WideScreen TV)
These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly
show widescreen pictures on 16:9 TV sets using the
Standard format mode. This is the recommended viewing
choice.
Non-Anamorphic
(or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letter Box, or Full
Screen}
These DVDs are recorded for use with traditionally shaped,
squarish TVs. They may be full screen (4:3 or 1:33:1)
which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or letter box,
which adds black top and bottom bars.
This information may be listed on the DVD case. Some
DVDs support both types of recordings.

Expand: This enlarges the picture to fill the screen, cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom. This is
useful for reducing the letter box top and bottom bars of
non-anamorphic DVD images. Available for 480i, 480p,
and digital SD 4:3 signals only.
Zoom: This enlarges the picture, cropping off some of
the image at each side and top and bottom. This is useful
for removing or reducing the black top and bottom bars
on anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Available
for 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.
Stretch: This format stretches a narrow (4:3) picture
across the screen; there is less stretch in the center than
at the sides, however. This allows the entire narrow image
to be displayed across the screen with less distortion than
is seen in the Standard format. Available for 480i and

Stretch Plus: Similar to stretch mode, but to minimize
distortions on the side, the picture is expanded to crop
off portions of the top and bottom. Except when displaying menus, press A V to adjust the position of the picture
vertically. Available for 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals
only.
Narrow: This format displays narrow (4:3) pictures in their
original shape, and adds stationary black side bars to fill
the screen. Available for 480i, 480p and SD 4:3 signals
only.
Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of
the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to
remove or reduce black side bars added to narrow pictures that are converted to 16:9 signals for digital broadcast. Available for 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9 and digital
HD signals.
Note:
All high-definition channels send widescreen (16:9)
signals, but not all programming sent on these
channels was created for this format. As a result,
the broadcaster must convert such programming
for broadcast, and may stretch the picture or add
side bars to fill the widescreen area.

Chapter
7. Using IEEE 1394 Devices
Overview
Compatible
IEEE 1394 Devices
Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all, cable
boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, and future products.
Some devices may have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not
compatible with the TV. Areas of compatibility to consider
are:
1. Digital Video Signals
The TV can decode MPEG2 video as provided by cable
boxes and some camcorders. Many camcorders provide
DV video, which the TV cannot decode. Connect a DV
camcorder to the TV using analog audio plus composite
video, S-video, or component video, or use HDMI audio/
video. Other types of digital video, such as PC video
provided by some computers, must be decoded by the
source device and sent to the TV as analog video, S-video,
or DVI/HDMI video.
2. Digital Audio Signals
When received with video signals, the TV can decode
Dolby Digital signals and MPEG audio signals. Other
types of digital audio as provided by some digital recording devices, such as DTS audio, cannot be decoded by
the TV when received over IEEE 1394 connections.
The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital audio
signals on the coaxial digital audio output. These signals
may pass to other devices, however, on the IEEE 1394 cable.
3. Digital Control Signal
The TV can serve as the control center for IEEE 1394
audio/video devices, such as VCRs, A/V Discs, tuners,
cable boxes, and amplifiers that are compatible with the
following IEEE 1394 control standards.
•
•
4-pin connector
6-pin connector
If you wish to connect a 6-pin device to the TV (such as a
camcorder), and the device is designed to receive electrical power from another 6-pin device, there are several
ways to provide electrical power to the device:
•
•
•
Connect the camcorder directly to the household AC.
Use the camcorder's battery for power.
Connect the camcorder directly to another 6-pin
device in the network that can provide power.
Connection
Methods
There are two connection methods for IEEE1394 devices. Use
the method that fits your network of audio/video products.
Direct Device=To-Device
resulting IEEE 1394 chain allows you to add more devices
to the chain. You will see an icon for each device in the
TV's Input Selection menu and can also send information
from any IEEE 1394 device to other compatible devices.
A/V Disc
AV/C (Audio Video Control).
Designed to provide
basic controls such as play, stop, channel selection,
and volume, as appropriate for the device.
A 6-pin connector cannot be connected directly
jack, and vice versa. To connect a 6-pin device
device, use a 6-pin-to-4-pin adapter or adapter
These cables are available from electronics and
stores.
to a 4-pin
to a 4-pin
cable.
computer
Digital
VCR
TV
Hub Connection
There are two different types of connectors used for IEEE
1394 terminals and cables: a 4-pin and a 6-pin type.
Both types send the same digital audio, video, and control
signals, but the 6-pin connectors can also supply lowvoltage electrical power to connected devices. This TV
uses only 4-pin type connectors.
Method
The IEEE 1394 interface allows you to chain devices,
unlike audio and video connections that require you to
connect each individual device directly to the TV. For
example, you can connect your D-VHS to your 1394 A/V
disc and then connect the 1394 A/V disc to the TV. The
EIA=775. Designed for tuning devices such as cable
boxes, allowing the device to send simple graphics. This standard does not, however, allow the TV to
control the cable box by IEEE 1394.
Four=Pin and 6=Pin Connections
6-pin-to-4-pin adapter
Method
The IEEE 1394 standard allows you to use the TV as a hub
within the audio/video network. Each device can send
information, which may include audio and video, to any
other device in the network.

IEEE
1394 Devices
Do not loop the last
device in the chain back
to the TV. When the
device chain is looped,
the TV may not be able
to work with the other
devices.
D_g_a_
IEEE 1394 Amplifiers
You can use the TV to control switching between the TV
speakers and speakers connected to your IEEE 1394
amplifier.
1.
TV
Place devices with the slowest communication speed
at the end of the chain. Sometimes the communication speed is marked near the IEEE 1394 connector
with an "S" number. The higher the number, the faster
the communication speed. This TV has a communication speed of s400. Devices with slow communication speeds can interfere with IEEE 1394 signals from
faster devices. When setting up a digital recording
between a faster device and a slower device, make
the slower device the source and make the faster
device the recorder.
Use IEEE 1394 cables 15 feet or less in length
between devices.
This TV is an IEEE 1394a device.
Press INPUT
to open the Input Selection menu. The
screen will show an icon for a connected IEEE 1394
amplifier. If an IEEE 1394 amplifier has been connected, AVR and TV speaker icons will display.
Place devices that have only a mechanical (two-position) power switch at the end of the chain or leave the
power switch in the on position. When turned off,
IEEE 1394 signals may not be able to pass through the
device to other devices.
It can be used with
an IEEE 1394b system when an IEEE-1394a-to-1394b

and the input Selection
Select an IEEE 1394 device to watch from the Input Selection menu just as you would any other device. See figure
3, Input Selection menu.
When you connect an IEEE 1394 device to the TV network
and power it on, the new device is automatically detected.
Some non-audio/video or incompatible IEEE 1394
devices, such as personal computers (PCs), may not be
detected by the TV and do not appear in the Input Selection menu. Such devices can, however, coexist and are
still available to other devices on the IEEE 1394 network
that are compatible with these non-audio/video devices.
Some devices may be a combination of two or more types
of devices, such as a recording device that is also a tuning
device. Each portion of the device is called a sub-unit.

IEEE 1394 System Compatibility
•
This television is designed to conform to IEEE 1394 AV/C Software standards in effect at the time of development.
This networking and control technology is designed to provide high-performance digital connections and product
control, making the product easier to use.
Mitsubishi D-VHS VCRs are fully compatible with this TV in audio, video, and control.
As other manufacturers distribute products that use the IEEE 1394 AV/C standards, they will be responsible for
developing products that meet the standards of the technology, as well as compatibility testing with other products.
Mitsubishi cannot be responsible for their efforts, and therefore cannot promise compatibility with these other products. Any compatibility problems with other manufacturers' products should be brought to the attention of those
manufacturers.
HDMI
The HDMI input is compliant with EIA-861B standards for standard, extended, and high-definition video; digital audio,
and HDCP copy protection. The HDMI inputs on this TV are not intended for use with personal computers or devices
outputting video signals with computer resolutions.
