You can also use the IR Emitter - Repeater outputs from the back of the TV .
Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices There are two different connection styles that can be used when connecting IEEE 1394 devices . Use the style that fits your network of audio / video products . Direct Device - To - Device Style Digital Digital ( Figure 1 ) DVD VCR The IEEE 1394 offers you the capability to chain devices , unlike previous audio and video Figure 1 . Direct Device - To - Device Style connections where you had to individually connect each device directly to the TV . For example , you can connect your D - VHS to your 1394 DVD Player and then connect the 1394 DVD Player to the TV . The resulting IEEE 1394 chain will allow you to add more devices to the chain . You will be able to see each video device on the TV and send information from any IEEE 1394 device to other compatible 1394 T _ , devices . TV 1394 Device # 1 Hub Connection Style ( Figure 2 ) The IEEE 1394 also offers you the capability to connect your devices using the TV as a hub within the audio / video network . Each device can send information , which may include audio and video , to any other device in the network . 1394 Device # 2 Figure 2 . Hub Connection Style When Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices â€¢ Do not loop the last device in the chain back to the TV . When the device chain is looped , the TV may not be able to work with the other devices . â€¢ Place devices that have only a mechanical ( two - position ) power switch at the end of the chain or leave the power switch in the ON position . When turned OFF , IEEE 1394 signals may not be able to pass through the device to other devices . â€¢ Place devices with the slowest communication speed at the end of the chain . Sometimes the communication speed will be marked near the IEEE 1394 connector as an " S " number . The higher the number , the faster the communication speed . Devices with slow communication speed can interfere with IEEE 1394 signals from faster devices . â€¢ Do not use an IEEE 1394 cable longer than 15 feet between each device . â€¢ This TV is an IEEE 1394A Device . IEEE 1394B is currently under development . This system will provide for long - distances and multi - room applications . Included in the IEEE 1394B systems is IEEE 1394A to IEEE 1394B converters to maintain compatibility with this TV and other IEEE 1394A devices .
Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices 4 - Pin Style vs . 6 - Pin Style ( Figures I and 2 ) There are two different types of connectors used for IEEE 1394 terminals and cables , a 4 - pin style , and a 6 - pin style . The 4 - pin connector is capable of sending digital audio signals , digital video signals and digital control signals back and forth between devices . Your TV has three 4 - pin type connectors available . The 6 - pin connector is capable of sending the same digital audio , video and control signals as the 4 - pin connector , but the 6 - pin connector is also able to Figure 1 . 4 - pin connector send low voltage electrical power . The purpose of this electrical power is to provide the needed operating power to a device that is not connected directly to the household AC power such as some camcorders . A device with a 6 - pin connector can send this electrical power to another device , or receive electrical power from another device , or simply use a 6 - pin connector without using the two additional pins . A 6 - pin connector cannot be connected directly to a 4 - pin jack , and vice versa . To connect a 6 - pin device to a 4 - pin device , you will need to obtain a 6 - pin to 4 - pin adaptor cable . These cables are available from electronic and computer stores . Figure 2 . 6 - pin connector If you connect a 6 - pin device to the TV ( such as a camcorder ) that is designed to receive electrical power from another 6 - pin device , then you will need to connect the camcorder directly to the household AC , or use the camcorder's battery for power . If this is not possible , then the camcorder will need to be connected directly to another 6 - pin device in the network that can provide the electrical power .
Adding IEEE 1394 Devices Automatically When an IEEE 1394 device is connected into the TV network and is powered ON , the new device will automatically announce its presence . This is called device discovery and can take up to 1 minute . Some non - audio / video or non - compatible IEEE 1394 devices , such as Personal Computers ( PCs ) , may not announce their presence to the TV . The TV will not be able to show these devices in the Device Selection menu , however , they will still be available to other devices on the IEEE 1394 network that are compatible with these non - audio / video devices . IEEE 1394 cable boxes and satellite receivers may require that you use the remote control that came with those devices . For some compatible devices , the Cable / DSS / DTV position of the TV remote control may be able to control operation . New 1394 Device Screen ( Figure 1 ) When your TV discovers a new IEEE 1394 device , the New 1394 Device screen will appear . Selecting Add will include the device in the Device Selection menu . Selecting Not Added will not add the device to the Device Selection menu . If the IEEE 1394 device does not provide audio and video , you may not want to add that device to the TV's Device Selection menu . Devices that were discovered but not added to the Device Selection menu will Figure 1 . New 1394 Device Screen still be listed in the Review screen of the Edit NetCommand TM menu . Name for 1394 Device Screen ( Figure 2 ) If you choose to add the discovered IEEE 1394 device , the Name for 1394 Device Screen will appear . You can then name the device or use the default name that appears automatically . Some IEEE 1394 digital devices , such as some D - VHS VCRs , can also operate as analog devices . For example , some D - VHS VCRs can also record Figure 2 . Name for 1394 Device Screen and play in VHS or S - VHS . This feature allows you to play analog rental tapes or analog tapes from your established library or make analog recordings from antenna or cable systems . To use the analog capability , check the Analog Connection box . Also , you will need to connect the device to the TV using video or S - video cables .
Adding IEEE 1394 Devices Automatically 1394 Device Type Screen ( Figure 1 ) If the new 1394 device is also connected using analog inputs , you will need to define the device type . Select the type of device , such as a VCR . Once the device type is selected , then the Device screen is displayed so the manufacturer can be selected ( see Figure 2 ) . If the manufacturer is listed , then you may be able to control this device while it is operating as an analog VCR . For example , if the Figure I . 1394 Device Type Screen IEEE 1394 device you have added is a Mitsubishi D - VHS VCR , and you have selected an analog connection as a second connection , then you will select Mitsubishi for the manufacturer . Be sure to place an IR Emitter in front of the remote control sensor , just as you have done for other NetCommand TM compatible traditional devices . It is necessary to use the IR Emitter only when the D - VHS VCR is being used as an S - VHS or VHS VCR . When the D - VHS VCR is playing or recording digital signals in D - VHS , the TV will control the VCR Figure 2 . VCR ( Device Sample ) Screen through the IEEE 1394 cable . Connection Screen ( Figure 3 ) The Connection Screen allows you to select which input on the TV you used to connect the video or S - Video cables and which TV or A / V Receiver input you used to connect the stereo audio cables . Match the input names for the TV Input and AVR Input selections . If your A / V Receiver has other inputs Figure 3 . Connection Screen than those listed in the menu , those other inputs are not available for NetCommand TM . The playback and record control of some DV camcorders may still operate by the IEEE 1394 cable automatically , even though you must use the video or S - video cable for the picture . In this case , when you select the Camcorder , be sure to select analog ( not digital ) from the pop up when a camcorder is selected from the Device Selection menu . Then the picture is shown via the analog connection but control is from IEEE 1394 .
Adding IEEE 1394 Devices Automatically Digital Control Signals , cont'd .

Some devices may be a combination of two or more types of devices . For instance , there may Digital Audio Signals be a recording device that is also a tuning device . Each portion of the device is called a sub - unit . The TV is able to decode Dolby Digital signals , PCM When you select a device on the Device Selection Digital Audio Signals and MPEG Audio signals . menu that has sub - units , a pop - up menu will appear so you can select which sub - unit section Other types of digital audio such as MP3 Audio and you wish to use . DTS Audio , as provided by some digital recording devices , cannot be decoded by the TV . The TV is not able to control IEEE 1394 devices that use other types of control protocols . The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital Incompatible digital audio , video and / or control audio signals on the coaxial digital audio output , information will still be able to pass from one however these signals may pass on the IEEE 1394 device through the TV to another device . These cable to other devices . incompatible devices may not appear on the Device Selection menu or in the Review screen of the Edit Digital Control Signals NetCommand TM menu . The TV is able to act as the control center for IEEE 1394 audio / video devices , such as VCRs , AV Discs , tuners , cable boxes and amplifiers that are compatible with the following IEEE 1394 control standards .
