Chapter 2. TV Connections 23

Before You Begin, continued

• Allow you to use a TV menu to select either the analog or digital output from the device.

For instructions on switching between analog and digital outputs, see chapter 7, “Using IEEE 1394 Devices.”

Name assigned to the device

Note: It is important to check mark the box when this screen appears upon first connecting the device, as later changes can only be made after returning all TV settings to their defaults.

3. In the New 1394 Device screen, note the name assigned to the device, as you will need to use the same name in a later step. See figure 3.

4. Connect the device to the TV with the supplemental analog cables.

5. The next screen is the Auto Input Sensing screen

(see figure 2) in which you can select a name for the device. Select the same name you noted in the New

1394 Device screen (see figure 3).

• If you select the wrong name for the device, you will be unable to switch between the analog and digital inputs to the TV.

• If you connect an IEEE 1394 cable box and it is detected as CABLE in the New 1394 Device screen, be sure to select the name CABLE as the name for the analog input and not cablebox.

Figure 3. The ClearThought Auto Input Sensing screen for

IEEE 1394 devices includes a check box for an associated analog connection.

If your IEEE 1394 device has an analog connection to the

TV, follow the instructions below.

1. Connect the device to the TV with an IEEE 1394 cable first.

2. When the New 1394 Device screen appears with the

Analog Connection check box highlighted, press ENTER to enter a check mark. See figure 3, New 1394 Device screen.

To Add an Analog Connection at a Later Time (not recommended)

1. Disconnect the IEEE 1394 device from the TV.

2. Reset all TV settings to their defaults using the TV

Reset service menu as follows: a. Press MENU to display the Main menu.

b. Press 1 2 3 to open the Reset service menu.

Digital Video and Home Recording

The table below will help you decide which type of connection to use for digital video. Digital video comes to your home in a compressed state, whether received on recorded media (e.g., disc) or broadcast over the air, over cable, or via satellite. Some compressed digital video is available for recording as noted in the table.

Connection Type into the TV


Compressed video is converted to uncompressed form by an external device such as a cable box, satellite receiver, or

DVD player before it is sent to the TV on an

HDMI or DVI cable.

IEEE 1394 (FireWire®) Connections

Your TV can receive and decode digital channels, MPEG2 compressed digital video, and Dolby Digital audio.

Effect on Home Recording

You cannot record the resultant uncompressed video sent to the TV via HDMI or DVI.

You can record compressed digital video either

• on compatible digital recorders as digital signals

• as standard-definition composite video from the MONITOR

OUTPUT jack converted to analog signals

You may be unable to record some programming because of copy restrictions added by the content owners.
