High Definition refers to a new way of sending programming information over the airwaves and into your TV . There are two types of TV display formats available . One is ATSC format , which originated from the Advanced Television Systems Committee . The other is NTSC format , which is named for the National Television System Committee . What makes your High Definition Television ( HDTV ) special is that it has tuners capable of receiving several types of signals : analog ( in NTSC format ) and digital ( in ATSC format ) , cable ( in NTSC and ATSC formats ) , and digital satellite and high definition satellite ( coming from DIRECTV if you subscribe to DIRECTV ® programmingt ) . This TV makes receiving all types of signals seamless . Below is an example of how your HDTV can receive the different types of signals . DIRECTV DIRECTV HD SATELLITE SATELLITE \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ TERRESTRIAL \ ANTENNA \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ OR \ \ \ \ \ TOWER SENDING _ a " ANALOG AND / OR - CABLE TV DIGITAL SIGNALS SATELLITE DISH ANTENNA * PARTS OF A COMPLETE HIGH DEFI N ITION SYSTEM So why is it called High Definition ? Definition - - commonly called resolution - - refers to the sharpness of the image and is determined by the number of dots , or pixels , your screen uses to create the image . The more pixels the sharper the image . An HDTV normally has either 1080 or 720 rows and over 1,000 columns of pixels . This results in a display of over one million pixels . Your HDTV also has a wide screen , or " wide aspect ratio " of 16 : 9 as opposed to the common 4 : 3 ratio . It is normally capable of displaying both interlaced images ( like today's analog TVs ) and progressive images ( like a computer monitor ) . What this all means is that while digital broadcasting will bring many new possibilities , only people with HDTVs like yours will actually be capable of realizing many of them . A wide aspect ratio , one million pixel resolution , CD - quality audio with Dolby Digital surround sound , and improved interactivity are features of many digital broadcasts , and your HDTV will help bring it all into your home . t Receipt of DIRECTV programming is subject to the terms of the DIRECTV Customer Agreement , a copy is provided with your first billing statement . DIRECTV and DIRECTV PLUS are trademarks of DIRECTV , Inc . , a unit of Hughes Electronics Corp . , and are used with permission . * The appearance of your satellite dish antenna may differ from that shown here . If your satellite dish antenna is round instead of oval , you can receive programming from only one DIRECTV satellite .

STEP 2 : CONNECT YOUR TV TO OTHER RemoteControl Power Cord COMPONENTS During the satellite dish antenna installation , the TV may have been connected with just a coaxial cable for the system test . Depending on what components you have , another connection may provide better picture and audio quality . The following sections provide cable and connection information to help you decide what connection is best for you . THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE CONNECTING COMPONENTS Protect Your Components from Power Surges • Connect all components before plugging any power cords into the wall outlet . • Always turn off the TV and other components before you connect or disconnect any cables . Position Cables Correctly to Avoid Audio Hum or Interference • Insert all cable plugs firmly into their jacks . • Place the audio / video cables to the sides of the TV's back panel instead of straight down the middle after you connect your components . • Try not to coil any twin - lead cables ; keep them away from the audio / video cables as much as possible . • Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded . Refer to the safety sheet packed with your unit . Protect Your Components from Overheating • Do not block ventilation holes in any of the components . Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely . • Do not stack components . • Allow adequate ventilation when placing your components in a stand . • Place an amplifier on the top shelf of the stand so that heated air rising from it will not flow around other components . 6

JACKS AND CABLES Below is a description of the jacks and cables you can use to make connections . Note that not all cables come with your television unit . S - Video Jack and Cable The S - Video jack provides the best picture quality for your system . This jack is available on this TV and is used in conjunction with audio cables . Remember also to connect the left and right audio cables because the S - Video jack carries only the picture signal , not the sound . S - Video Jack Audio / Video Jacks and Cables ( RCA - type ) The audio / video jacks provide very good picture and stereo sound quality . Theses jacks are used for most audio / video connections between components . The audio / video jacks are often color coded ( yellow for video , red for right audio , and white for left audio ) . If your component has only one input for audio ( mono ) , connect it to the left ( white L / Mono ) audio jack on the TV . Audio / Video Jacks RF Jacks and Coaxial Cables ( F - type ) The RFjacks are necessary for reception of off - air broadcasts , cable , and DIRECTV signals . These jacks are required for antenna or cable connections . The RF and coaxial jacks on the TV are labeled SATELLITE IN , ANTENNA A IN , and ANTENNA B IN . An RG - 6 coaxial cable is required for all satellite signal RF Jack distribution . Optical Jack and Cables The optical cable is used for connecting a Dolby Digital receiver . If you own a Dolby Digital receiver that uses an optical cable - type input , you can use an optical cable to connect the TV to that receiver for the best sound Digital Audio quality . Out Jack Telephone Jack and Cord The telephone line cord is required to connect your TV to a phone line . If you choose to subscribe to DIRECTV ® programming , some services require this phone line connection . The phone line connection is used to periodically call out to DIRECTV . You will need an RJ11 type modular jack , which is the most common type of phone jack and might look like the one pictured here . If you don't have a modular jack , call your local telephone Phone Jacks company to find out how to get one installed . Y PBPR Jacks and Cable The Y PBPRjacks allows you to connect an optional component video source , such as a DVD player . This connection provides optimum quality by maintaining the video source as three separate signals through these jacks . To ensure maximum picture quality , use three video - grade cables for Y PB PR the connection . 7
