Introduction

Key Features Overview

Your TV is equipped with features that will add to your TV viewing experience. The following information summarizes a few of these features. Chapter 3 provides more information about the rest of the TV’s features and how to use them.

Hi-Pix Picture Enhancement System

The Hi-Pix Picture Enhancement System incorporates two of RCA’s most advanced technologies: TruScan Digital Reality and the AVR Picture Projection System. The result is the ultimate in true-to-life picture performance that provides the optimum picture resolution from each digital source connected to your TV (terrestrial, DVD, satellite, and/or cable).

TruScan Digital Reality

Picture performance starts with signal processing. TruScan Digital Reality intelligent signal processing recognizes incoming video signals and progressively converts them to achieve optimum digital picture performance. It enhances the picture quality and makes you feel as if you’re close to the real thing. It also recognizes when original film sources have been modified and automatically converts the analog frame rate back to its original format to bring out the detail – a process commonly referred to as reverse 3:2 pulldown.

AVR Picture Projection System

The Accurate Visual Reality high definition picture projection system offers a brighter picture then conventional CRTs

(cathode ray tubes). These tubes creates brilliant, lifelike fidelity. The AVR 4 lens system is designed to complement the

CRTs providing accurate colors and razor sharp focus everywhere on the screen.

DVI-HDTV Input

Lets you connect a component with a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) output. DVI provides an uncompressed, digital video interface developed for high-bandwidth digital connection. It supports the overlay of high-resolution graphics needed by some electronic program guide navigation and other interactive services. DVI, when combined with HDCP (High bandwidth

Digital Content Protection) technology, creates a protected digital connection. The DVI-HDTV connection is designed to display either progressive scan (480p) or HDTV (1080i) signals at a bandwidth of up to 1.78 Gigabits per second.

PIP (Picture-In-Picture) and POP (Picture-Outside-Picture)

Description: PIP lets you watch two channels at one time – one channel on the main screen and the other in a smaller window. POP also lets you watch two channels at one time – one channel on the left side of the screen (the main picture) and the other on the right.

Requirements: Press the PIP button to bring up the PIP window. Press again to bring up POP. Chapter 3 has detailed instructions on how to use the PIP and POP features.

Note: PIP and POP are not available for DVI or component video sources (CMP1 or CMP2).

V-Chip: Parental Controls (for the U.S. and Canada)

Description: You can block programs and movies by content, age-based ratings, and/or movie ratings.

Requirements:

• Set up the Parental Control menu in the TV’s main menu (Chapter 3 has details).

• The broadcasters must use the rating system when they send the program to your TV in order for your TV to block the program.

• Parental controls must be locked for these settings to take affect.

Connections & Setup

Things to Consider Before You Connect

Protect Against Power Surges

• Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.

• Turn off the TV and/or component before you connect or disconnect any cables.

• Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safety

Instructions on page 1.

Protect Components from Overheating

• Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.

• Don’t stack components.

• If you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.

• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow around other components.

Position Cables Properly to Avoid Audio Interference

• Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.

• If you place components above the TV, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV instead of straight down the middle of the TV.

• If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin lead cables away from audio/video cables.

Important Stand and Base Safety Information

Choose the location for your TV carefully. Place the TV on a stand or base that is of adequate size and strength to prevent the TV from being accidentally tipped over, pushed off, or pulled off. This could cause personal injury and/or damage the TV. Refer to the Important Safety Instructions on page 1.

Use Indirect Light

Don’t place the TV where sunlight or room lighting will be directed toward the screen. Use soft or indirect lighting.

Complete the Initial Setup

The technical term is “Navigation” – how you move through the on-screen menus.

The theory is the same throughout the menu screens: highlight your choice and select it.

To highlight a menu item, press the arrow buttons on the remote to highlight one of the items listed on the screen. Use the up or down arrow button to move up or down. Use the right or left arrow button to move right or left.

To select the item that you’ve highlighted, press OK.

Note: Highlighted means that the menu item stands out from other menu items on the list (appears darker, brighter, or a different color).

Connections & Setup

Turn on the TV

Press TV on the remote, or press POWER on the TV’s front panel.

Note: Pressing the TV button not only turns on the TV, but puts the remote into TV mode. “TV mode” means that the buttons on the remote control operate the TV’s functions.

Tip

To access the setup menus manually, press

MENU and choose SETUP.

Complete the Initial Setup

The menu system in your TV allows the TV’s features to work properly. The first time you turn on your TV, the setup screens appear.

Set the Menu Language

The first part of the setup allows you to select your preferred language for the menu system.

If English is your preferred language, press OK. If you want to choose another language, press the down arrow button until that language is highlighted, and press OK.

Complete Auto Channel Search

The next screen asks you to make sure you've connected the TV to a cable, satellite, or off-air signal. When you're sure that a signal is connected to your

TV, press OK on your remote to go to the Channel setup screen.

In the Channel setup screen, you can launch the Auto channel search by pressing OK. The Auto channel search allows the TV to search for all channels viewable through your antenna or cable TV system. This is sometimes called

auto programming. When the channel search is complete, press OK to access the List & Labels screen.

Connections & Setup

Note:

If you're using an HD source (such as an

HDTV tuner or HDTV satellite receiver) on the

CMPNT or DVI input, you should run Auto convergence separately for that input as well.

Tune to the input you're using for the HD source, then go to page 38 for information on Auto convergence.

Changing Lists and Labels

The List & Labels part of the setup lets you edit your channel list and choose or create a personal six-character label for each channel.

Note: Changing List and Labels can be time consuming. You can change these at a later time by accessing the Setup menu.

1. Press the left or right arrow to scroll through the channels and choose the one you want to edit.

2. Press the down arrow to highlight the In channel list option. Press the left or right arrow button to add (the box is checked) or remove (the box is unchecked) the channel from the list.

3. Press the down arrow to highlight the Channel label option. Press the left or right arrow button to scroll through the available list of 25 most common labels. The last option in the list allows you to create your own sixcharacter label for the channel (the first letter of the label is highlighted).

4. Press the 1 or 2 number button to change the first letter of the label.

5. Press the right arrow to highlight the second letter, then press the 1 or 2 number button to change the second letter, etc...

6. When you are finished creating your label, press OK. Select Go back to go to the Auto Convergence menu.

Auto Convergence

Your TV’s picture tubes might have been disturbed during delivery or after you moved the TV, causing the color in your TV to be out of alignment. The colors adjust by starting auto convergence.

IMPORTANT: Auto convergence works best once the TV has warmed up for at least an hour. If you've just unpacked your TV, it's a good idea to repeat the Auto convergence function when the TV's been running for at least an hour. See page 38 for more information about Auto convergence.

1. Press OK to begin auto convergence.

2. When the auto convergence is complete, the Red center convergence menu appears. The cross in the middle of the screen should be yellow. If it is not, use the arrow buttons to move the red cross to overlap the green cross.

Press OK when adjustments are complete.

3. The Blue center convergence menu appears with a cyan cross in the middle of the screen. If it is not, use the arrow buttons to move the blue cross to overlap the green cross. Press OK (the TV tunes to the last selected/ available channel in the channel list).

Programming the Remote to Operate

Other Components

The universal remote can be programmed to operate most brands of remote controllable components. The remote is already programmed to operate most

RCA, GE, and Proscan components.

Also, the AUX•HD button can be programmed to operate most brands of an additional remote-controllable component (such as a VCR, DVD player, satellite receiver or cable box).

Note: The TV button can’t be programmed on this remote.

Find Out If You Need to Program the Remote

To determine whether the universal remote needs to be programmed to operate one of the components connected to your TV, such as a DVD player, do the following:

1. Turn on the component (in this example, a DVD player).

2. Point the remote at the component.

3. Press the corresponding component button (in this example, the DVD button).

4. Press ON•OFF to see if the DVD player responds. If the DVD player doesn’t respond, you need to program the remote to operate it.

You’ll use these buttons when you program the remote.

Important: The remote may not be compatible with all models of all brands of components. It also may not operate all functions of the remote that came with your component.

Programming the Remote

There are two ways to program the remote control:

• automatic code search

• direct entry

Tip

To stop the automatic code search without programming any components, press and hold

CLEAR until the indicator on the remote turns off.

Using Automatic Code Search

The following instructions can be used to program the remote to operate each of your components. If you want to stop the automatic code search without programming any of your components, press CLEAR until the indicator on the remote turns off.

Note: The AUX•HD button on this remote is set by default to search for codes for DVD players only. If you want to program it for use with a different component, use the direct entry method.

1. Turn on the component you want to operate (VCR, DVD player, etc.)

2. Press and hold the component button you want to program (DVD or

AUX•HD). While holding the component button, press and hold ON•OFF until the indicator on the remote turns on, then release both buttons.

3. Point the remote at the component. Press and release PLAY, then wait 5 seconds or until the indicator on the remote stops flashing.

At this point the remote is searching for the correct code to program. If, after 5 seconds, the component you want to operate does not turn off, press PLAY again to tell the remote to search the next set of codes.

Using the Remote Control Using the Remote Control

Important

You must continue pressing the component button while you enter the code.

Let’s say you have a Zenith DVD player. To program the universal remote to operate the

DVD player, you would:

Press and hold the DVD button while you enter the first code listed for Zenith in the

DVD Codes column.

Release the DVD button. Press ON•OFF to see if the DVD player responds. If it doesn’t, follow the same steps, but enter the second code for Zenith DVD players instead of the first.

Continue pressing PLAY until the component turns off or the indicator light on the remote turns off. If the indicator light turns off, then all codes for that particular component have been tested once. If the component does not turn off, then the remote can’t be programmed to operate that component.

If the component you want to control does turn off:

1. Press and release REVERSE, then wait 2 seconds. Repeat this step until the device turns back ON.

2. To finish, press and hold STOP until the indicator on the remote turns off.

A code that controls your component has been saved to that remote button.

Using Direct Entry

1. Turn on the component to be programmed.

2. Look up the brand and code number(s) for the component on the code list in this section.

3. Press and hold the component button you want to program on the remote.

4. Enter the code from the remote control code list on the following pages. If the indicator flashes, you have either entered an invalid code or the button isn’t programmable.

5. Release the component button, point the remote at the component and then press ON•OFF to see if the component responds to the command. If it doesn’t, try pressing the component button and then ON•OFF again.

• If you get no response, repeat these steps using the next code listed for your brand, until the component responds to the remote commands.

• If you try all the codes for your component brand and none work, try the automatic code search method. If automatic code search doesn’t find the code, the remote is not compatible with your component.

How to Use the Remote After You’ve Programmed It

Because this universal remote can control several different components (TV,

DVD, VCR, satellite receiver, etc.) it uses operational modes triggered by the component buttons. For example, if you want the remote to control the TV, you would press the TV button to put the remote into TV mode before you could control the TV.

1. Press the appropriate component button (DVD or AUX•HD) to set the remote to control the component.

2. Press ON•OFF to turn the component ON or OFF.

3. Use the remote buttons that apply to that component.

Notes:

• The remote may not be compatible with all brands and models of components. It also may not operate all functions of the remote that came with your component.

• If you keep pressing buttons and nothing happens, the remote is probably in the wrong mode. You must press the component button that matches the component you want to operate (i.e., if you want to operate the DVD player, press DVD on the remote control to put the remote in DVD mode.)

Using the INPUT Button

Use the INPUT button to scroll through the available input channels and view components you have connected to the TV.

1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure the component you want to view is turned ON.

2. Press INPUT to tune to an available input channel.

3. To return to the channel you were previously watching on TV, press CH+ or

CH- button.

Parental Controls and V-Chip

The choices in the US V-CHIP and Canada V-CHIP menus involve software inside your TV

(referred to as V-Chip) which allows you to block TV programs and movies based on violence, sex, or other content you may believe children should not view.

Once you block programs, you can unblock programs by entering a password.

By default, the software inside your TV is turned “off.” For instructions to turn on V-Chip, go to page 31.

Note: Parental Control settings are not available for DVI, CMP1, or CMP2 inputs.

How V-Chip Works for USA and Canada

V-Chip reads the program’s age-based rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc.) and content themes [(Violence

(V), Adult Language (L), etc.)]. If you have blocked the rating and/or content themes that the program contains, you will receive the message This channel has not been approved for viewing.

Change channel or press OK to enter password and temporarily deactivate the Parental Control.

Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes, so programs received with no content themes will only be blocked if you block their age-based rating. You can also block out programs that have been given an Exempt rating, and programs that are considered unrated. The next several pages have tables showing the TV age-based ratings and content themes for the US and

Canada.

US V-Chip TV Rating Limit

The V-Chip TV Rating Limit lets you decide which TV programs can and cannot be viewed.

To set TV programming limits:

1. Choose Parental Control from the MAIN MENU. If Parental Controls have previously been locked, you must enter your password.

2. Highlight and select US V-Chip. Then select V-Chip TV Rating.

3. Once you get to the V-Chip TV rating limit screen, use the arrow buttons and OK on your remote to change the status of a TV program rating or content theme from View to Block.

4. For TV rating limits to take effect, lock Parental Controls by accessing the

Lock parental controls menu.

The following sections give you more details about how to change the status of

TV program limits.

Note: If you forget your password, follow step one above to get to the password entry screen. Then press the VOL+ and CH+ buttons on the TV's front panel at the same time for at least 8 seconds. You will receive an on-screen message that Parental Controls have been unlocked once you've successfully reset the password.

Optimized still picture When enabled (box checked), enhances the picture specifically for still frames (for example, if you're watching a slideshow on your HDTV monitor, or if you've paused a frame of a DVD).

Auto Skin Tone When enabled (box checked), minimizes the flesh tone variations of the TV picture.

Film mode (3:2 Pulldown) Automatically detects video sources that were originally recorded on film (like most movies) and subsequently converted to a different format (for TV broadcast, for example). Film mode processes the converted signal so that it looks as close as possible to the original.

Another name for this process is reverse 3:2 pulldown.

Advanced (recommended) enables the feature only when the TV detects that movie playback quality could be improved. Advanced is the default setting.

The On setting should only be used in rare circumstances when the TV is used solely with film-based sources (like DVDs on a non-progressivescan player).

The Off setting turns off film mode upconversion. Try using this setting if you think the reverse 3:2 pulldown is causing distortions in your picture.

Note: Autoformat and Video noise reduction are available for CMP1 and

CMP2 inputs only if the signal is 480i.

Picture Presets Displays a choice list that lets you select one of the preset picture settings: Vibrant, Cinematic, Natural, Sports, Videogame, Video Camera or Personal. Choose the setting that is best for your viewing environment. You can set a different picture preset for each input (including one for your regular

TV channels).

Black Level Adjusts the brightness of the picture.

Color Adjusts the richness of the color.

Contrast Adjusts the difference between the light and dark areas of the picture.

Sharpness Adjusts the crispness of the edges in the picture.

Note: You can adjust sharpness for each channel and input. This is useful if the signal appears fuzzy.

Color Warmth Displays a choice list that lets you set one of three automatic color adjustments: Cool for a more blue palette of picture colors; Normal; or

Warm for a more red palette of picture colors. The warm setting corresponds to the NTSC standard of 6500 K.

Tint Adjusts the balance between the red and green levels.

When you change any of these picture settings, the Picture Preset changes to

Personal. Use the left or right arrow button to make adjustments. To return to the Picture menu, press the up or down arrow button.

Short-term vs. Long-term

Power Outages

The Auto channel and Auto volume settings don’t take effect after short-term power outages (usually less than two to three minutes). The TV will turn back on at the same volume and channel as before the power outage.

The Auto channel and Auto volume settings take effect after power outages of several minutes or more.

Curtain effect Reveals the picture by "opening" it from the middle of the screen when the TV is switched on. Hides the picture by "closing" it from the sides when the TV is switched off.

Special features The Auto on setting switches your TV on after a power outage; Auto channel tunes the TV to the channel you specify as the Initial

channel when Auto on is enabled; Auto volume tunes the TV to the volume you set in Initial volume when Auto on is enabled.

Closed Caption Many programs are encoded with closed-captioning information, which lets you display the audio portion of a program as text on the

TV screen.

Closed captioning is not available on all channels at all times. Only specific programs encoded with closed-captioning information. When a program is closed captioned, CC is displayed in the channel banner. See Chapter 3 for more information about the channel banner. The closed caption options are:

Closed caption setting Lets you choose the way closed captioning information appears on the screen. The Closed caption setting does not effect the DVI-HDTV input.

If you are unsure of the differences among the modes, you may prefer to leave the closed captioned mode set to CC1, which displays complete text of the program in the primary language in your area.

Autotuning Displays a choice list that lets you set up the TV to automatically tune to the correct input channel when you press a component button (DVD or AUX/HD) on the remote. Go to Chapter 3 for details about the Autotuning feature.

Care and Cleaning

CAUTION: Turn OFF your TV before cleaning.

You can clean the TV as required, using a soft lint-free cloth. Be sure to occasionally dust the ventilation slots in the cabinet to help assure adequate ventilation.

The TV’s screen may be cleaned with a soft, lint-free cloth as well. Take care not to scratch or mar the screen. If necessary, you may use a cloth dampened with warm water.
