Connecting External Devices & NetCommand TM Setup NetCommand TM is able to control many current audio and video devices by sending remote control signals from the TV to each device . NetCommand TM will also automatically switch the TV and compatible Audio / Video ( A / V ) Receivers to the correct input used with each device . It is important that the inputs on the TV and AV Receiver match the NetCommand TM Setup . To simplify the installation of NetCommand TM , there is a step - by - step on - screen NetCommand TM Setup procedure . This procedure details the type and brands of devices you are connecting to the TV . The NetCommand TM Setup also assigns preset TV and AV Receiver inputs for each device . You should connect each device to the TV input ( both audio and video ) and to the AV Receiver ( audio ) as shown in Figure 1 .

Setup Menu : Convergence Convergence Menu ( FigureI ) Your Mitsubishi TV has three picture tubes which need to be aligned to properly converge the projected light beams on the screen . Each picture tube projects a single color of red , blue or green . During production , your TV was carefully adjusted to properly align these colors . However , moving the TV , the TV's location in relation to the Earth's magnetic poles , and the passage of time can cause Figure 1 . Setup menu , ( Convergence selected ) these adjustments to change . As a special feature , you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam . This process is called convergence . There are two separate memories for convergence . One , for SD 480i / 480p signals ; the other for HD 1080i signals . SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source ; likewise , HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source . The TV should be fully warmed up before adjusting Convergence . Turn the TV On and wait at least 30 minutes before making adjustments . Reset Factory Defaults Menu ( Figure 2 ) This allows you to reset the convergence to the original factory settings . The message " Convergence reset completed " will be displayed Figure 2 . Reset Factory Defaults menu when the factory defaults have been restored .
