Cable Management

Both TV models provide cable ties that help keep cables properly organized and connected, especially important when the swivel feature is used. For more information about the swivel feature, see Manual and Power Swivel in

Chapter 1.

Cable ties #1-3 come attached to the back of the TV, and cable tie #4 is provided with the accessories and must be attached by TV owner. The number of cables that are connected to the TV will determine the number of cable ties that will be needed.

Choosing a Program Source

NOTE: If your only viewing sources are connected to the

ANT 1 and ANT 2 antenna jacks, you can switch inputs without the Input Selection menu. Press

INPUT to switch between ANT 1 and ANT 2. To verify which is the current source while watching

TV, press INFO to see the on-screen status display.

ChannelView™ Channel Listings

ChannelView provides program information only when provided by the broadcaster for memorized digital channels on ANT 1 or ANT 2. Digital channels are indicated with a

“D” and analog channels with an “A.”

Digital channels are shown with the major channel and sub-channels (or bitstreams). Analog channel names are shown only if they are named in the channel menu.

Note: If limited data is shown or no program data appears, it is because the broadcaster is not sending the information. This is not a defect of your TV.

Selecting from Multiple Sources: The Input

Selection Menu

The Input Selection menu allows you to select an input to watch on the TV. The current input appears as a goldcolored icon.

1. Press INPUT on the TV’s remote control to display the

Input Selection menu (Figure 2).

2. To select a different input, press on the TV’s remote control to move the highlight through icons in the input section.

3. Press ENTER to switch to the device and close the menu.

More About the Input Selection Menu

• To assign meaningful labels to the icons, such as

“VCR” or “DVD,” see the “Input Name” section of chapter 4, “TV Menu Settings.”

• To rearrange the icons, see the “Icon Order” section of chapter 4, “TV Menu Settings.”

• To use with IEEE 1394 devices, see additional information in chapter 7, “Using IEEE 1394 Devices.”

TV Signals and Picture Formats

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.

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 FORMAT key 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.

Signal Definitions

480i Signals: Traditional analog interlaced signals from or through ANT-1 and 2, INPUT 1–3, COMPONENT

1 and 2, HDMI 1 and 2.

480p Signals: Progressive-scan DVD signals on COM-

PONENT inputs and HDMI 1 and 2 .

720p and 1080i Signals: High-definition signals received through COMPONENT inputs and HDMI 1 and 2.

These signals are always 16:9 (widescreen).

1080p Signals: High-definition signals received through

HDMI 1 and 2.

SD 4:3: Standard-definition narrow-screen format signals from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.

SD 16:9: Standard-definition widescreen format signals from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.

HD: High-definition wide-screen format signals from digital channels and IEEE-1394 devices. These signals are always

16:9 (widescreen).

TV Picture Format Definitions

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.

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

480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

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 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.

Captions Menu

For analog channels, broadcasters can send either standard closed captions or text service. Standard closed captions follow the dialogue of the characters on screen and display in a small section of the screen. Text-service closed captions often contain information such as weather or news and cover a large portion of the screen.

For digital channels, broadcasters can send up to six different captioning selections or can send analog captions that are the same as those sent by the analog station.

Each TV station may broadcast only one or two types of captions or none at all. The TV cannot decode closed captions received on component or HDMI inputs.

The following display options are available for digital sources:

• Captions 1–6: Sent by broadcaster.

• On if Mute: Closed captions are displayed when audio is muted. When selected, press MUTE on the TV remote control to turn captioning on/off (Caption 1).

• Off: No closed captions.

Note: For digital programs, if the broadcaster is sending only analog captions converted to digital format, then the analog caption settings apply.

IMPORTANT

Mitsubishi recommends you use contrasting colors for captions and background.

Black translucent background combined with a white font makes an easy-to-read combination.

Use care when selecting custom colors. Your choice may affect the readability of captions.

IMPORTANT

The content of captions is determined by the broadcaster. If your captions show strange characters, misspellings, or odd grammar, it is not a malfunction of the TV.
