Warnings FCC Notice : Caution : Changes or modifications not expressly approved by party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment . We have an important note for customers who subscribe to basic cable services ( do not have a separate cable box ) and plan to use their JVC TV remote control to select channels . Once you run the Auto Tuner Setup ( which detects and programs all the channels your TV is receiving through the RF input ) , every channel number available from your cable company will appear in your television’s Channel Summary and they will all be marked as available for scanning . Even though every channel is detected and appears as available , you will only be able to view those that you specifically subscribe to from your cable company . This will likely mean there are blank channels between those channels you wish to scan or “ surf ” . We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but it is important to note that this is not a malfunction of your television . If you want to sequentially scan those channels you subscribe to without blank ones in between , you can contact your cable company for their cable box and remote , or manually deselect them using the edit / skip feature on page 30 . Precautions Avoiding Temporary Burn - in Displaying fixed images for extended periods of time can leave a subtle but temporary burn - in image on your screen . To avoid this , mix your viewing pattern . Examples include , but are not limited to the following : For example . . . • Stock - market report bars TV on TV off • Shopping channel logos and pricing displays • Video game patterns or scoreboards • Bright station logos • Internet web sites or other computer - style images • DVD discs , video tapes , laser discs • Broadcast , cable , satellite channels or XYZ XYZ digital television tuners / converters 6

JVC Loves the Earth Digital Television Transition Notice : This device contains a digital television tuner , so it should receive digital over the air TV programming , with a suitable antenna , after the end of full - power analog TV broadcasting in the United States on February 17 , 2009 . Some older television receivers , if they rely on a TV antenna , will need a TV Converter to receive over the air digital programming , but should continue to work as before for other purposes ( e.g . , for watching low - power TV stations still broadcasting in analog , watching pre - recorded movies , or playing video games ) . For more information , see http : / / www.DTV.gov or call 1 - 888 - CALL - FCC . For converter box information , see http : / / www.dtv2009 . gov or call the NTIA at 1 – 888 – DTV – 2009 .
