Important Warranty Information
Regarding Television Format
Viewing
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on them
should primarily be in the standard 4:3 ratio format and constantly moving. Displaying
stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the dark top and bottom letterbox bars (wide
screen pictures), should be limited to no more than 15% of the total television viewing per
week.
Wide screen format televisions (16:9, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view wide screen format full-motion video. The images displayed on
them should primarily be in the wide screen 16:9 ratio format, or expanded to fill the screen if
your model offers this feature, and constantly moving. Displaying stationary graphics and
images on screen, such as the dark side-bars on non-expanded standard format television video
and programming, should be limited to no more than 15% of the total television viewing per
week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market reports, video
game displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics and patterns, should be limited as
described above for all televisions. Displaying any stationary images that exceed the above
guidelines can cause uneven aging of picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle, but permanent burned-in
ghost images in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily
display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars. On television models that
offer picture sizing features, use these controls to view the different formats as a full screen
picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. Uneven CRT
aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered
by your Samsung limited warranty.

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 (providing electronic
program guides and interactive television).
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.
Interactive Communications and Datacasting
DTV will allow you to interact with your television; choosing programs from a detailed
program guide, ordering products on-line while watching TV, and accessing ancillary
data about a program.

How to View Digital Television
There are three ways to watch DTV. The first is to use an integrated digital TV; one with
a built-in digital television tuner. The second is to connect an external DTV set-top
receiver to a DTV-ready television or monitor. This type of TV or monitor will have
wideband component video and stereo audio inputs. You can also watch DTV signals
with personal computer (PC) tuner cards and computer monitors.
1. Integrated TVs versus DTV-ready TVs and monitors
The advantage of an integrated DTV set is that it can tune both analog and digital TV
channels at the same time. All you need to do is add an external antenna and you are
ready to watch DTV.
However, integrated DTV sets are not as common as DTV-ready TVs and monitors.
If you already own a DTV-ready TV with component video inputs, you can enjoy DTV
broadcasts by simply adding a low-cost DTV set-top receiver and antenna.
2. Using a personal computer and monitor
There are plug-in cards available that will receive and display DTV broadcasts on your
computer monitor. In addition, many computer monitors will display one or more of
the DTV program formats directly. The most compatible format is 480p, which is similar
to the VGA (640x480 pixel) computer display standard. You may be able to watch DTV
broadcasts by connecting a computer monitor to the 15-pin jack on the rear of a
set-top DTV receiver.
NOTE
This television receiver supports the copy protection system regulated by DTLA (Digital
Transmission Licensing Administrator). It should be noted that copy protected content may
not be viewable depending on your particular connections.

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, townhouses, 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.

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

Important Notes About Parental Locks
Explanation of the MPAA and TV (FCC) Rating Systems:
TV (FCC) Age-Based Ratings
TV-Y
All children. The themes and elements in
this program are specifically designed for a
very young audience, including children
from ages two to six.
TV-PG
Parental guidance suggested. The program
may contain infrequent coarse language,
limited violence, some suggestive sexual
dialog and situations.
TV-Y7
Directed to older children. Themes and
elements in this program may include mild
physical or comedic violence, or may
frighten children under the age of seven.
TV-14
Parents strongly cautioned. This program
may contain sophisticated themes, sexual
content, strong language and more intense
violence.
TV-G
General audience. It contains little or no
violence, no strong language, and little or no
sexual dialog or situations.
TV-MA
Mature audiences only. This program may
contain mature themes, profane language,
graphic violence and explicit sexual
content.

R
R (Restricted. Children under 17

• TV (FCC) ratings: The particular rating that you have selected will be
locked (and indicated as a red “L” on a blue background). Also, all of the
age-based ratings will be locked within the particular group (i.e., “group 1”
or “group 2”).
Suppose that the TV-G rating and all of its contents (V, S, L, and D) are
locked. In that case, more restrictive ratings (TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA)
and all of their contents (V, S, L, and D) are automatically locked as well.
• MPAA ratings: The particular rating that you have selected will be locked.
In addition, more restrictive ratings will be locked as well.
• Neither TV (FCC) ratings nor MPAA ratings apply to news programs.

Customizing Your Remote Control
Your TV comes equipped with a universal remote control. In addition to controlling the TV,
the universal remote control can also operate a VCR, Cable box, DVD, and some Samsung
Set-top boxes (even if your VCR, Cable box and DVD are made by manufacturers other than
Samsung).
Setting Up Your Remote Control to Operate Your VCR (Cable box
or DVD player)
1
Turn off your VCR (Cable box or DVD player).
2
Press the MODE button to switch the remote control to the VCR (CABLE or
DVD) mode.
œ The remote control has five
modes: TV, STB, VCR, CABLE,
and DVD.
3
On your Samsung remote control, press the SET button.
4
Enter 3 digits of the VCR (Cable box or DVD player) code listed on next page
for your brand of VCR (Cable box or DVD player).
5
Press the POWER button on the remote control. Your VCR (Cable box or
DVD player) should turn on. If your VCR (Cable box or DVD player) turns on,
your remote control is now set correctly.
œ Make sure you enter 3 digits
of the code, even if the first digit
is a “0”. (If more than one code is
listed, try the first one.)
œ If your VCR (Cable box or
DVD player) does not turn on,
repeat steps 2, 3, and 4, but try
one of the other codes listed for
the brand of your particular VCR
(Cable box or DVD player).
6
Once your remote control is set up, press the MODE button any time you
want to use the remote to operate your VCR (Cable box or DVD player).
• When your remote is in the TV mode, the VCR (or DVD player) control buttons (REW, STOP,
PLAY/PAUSE, and FF) will still operate your VCR (or DVD player).
• When your remote control is in the STB, VCR, CABLE, or DVD mode, the volume buttons still
control your TV’s volume.

Please check the digital signal strength and input antenna.
The visual qualities of digital channels may vary
depending on the original production method (analog

• 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 to digital. The visual
quality is of an SD grade.
The HD caption that appears when switching channels
or when pressing the Information button on the remote
control means the selected channel is a digital channel. If
the broadcasting station converts an analog signal into
digital and transmits the signal, the visual quality may not
be perfect.
