  • Page 18: Cablecard™ Technology

    CableCARD™ Technology CableCARD is a nationwide system standard that allows your local cable TV provider to supply you with an access card customized to your account. This card allows your TV to receive, decode, and unscramble the premium digital channels included in your cable TV subscription without the use of a cable box. When you move to a new cable provider’s area, return the CableCARD to the original cable provider and get a new card from your new provider. Please note that CableCARD is a relatively new technology and your local cable provider may not currently be offer- ing this service. As time passes, this system will become broadly supported by most cable providers. The CableCARD system is unidirectional, meaning your cable provider can send updates to the TV, but the TV cannot send signals back. As a result, certain advanced and interactive digital cable services, such as requests for video-on-demand and pay-per-view programs, a cable operator’s enhanced program guide, and data-enhanced television services may require use of a set-top box instead. For more information, call your local cable opera- tor. Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD are available on the Firewire® IEEE 1394 network and can be shared by other products on the network. You may be unable to record or copy some digital programs, however, because of copy restrictions set by the content or copy- right owners. Using a CableCARD™ Power on the TV and insert the CableCARD into the CableCARD slot with the top of the card oriented as indi- cated by CARD TOP . When the initial screen dis- plays, write down the information that appears and have it ready when calling your cable provider. In order to start cable service for this device, please contact your cable provider 1-800-xxx-xxxx...

    IEEE 1394 Devices Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all, cable boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, and future products. Some devices may have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not compatible with the TV. Areas of compatibility to consider are: 1. Digital Video Signals The TV can decode MPEG2 and DV, and HDV video as provided by cable boxes and some camcorders. If the TV is unable to decode the digital signal supplied by the camcorder, connect the camcorder to the TV using analog audio plus composite video, S-video, or component video, or use HDMI audio/video. Other types of digital video, such as PC video provided by some computers, must be decoded by the source device and sent to the TV as analog video, S-video, or DVI/HDMI video. 2. Digital Audio Signals When received with video signals, the TV can decode Dolby Digital signals and MPEG audio signals. Other types of digital audio as provided by some digital record- ing devices, such as MP3 audio and DTS audio, cannot be decoded by the TV when received over IEEE 1394 con- nections. The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital audio signals on the coaxial digital audio output. These signals may pass to other devices, however, on IEEE 1394 cables. 3. Digital Control Signal The TV can serve as the control center for IEEE 1394 audio/video devices, such as VCRs, A/V Discs, tuners, cable boxes, and amplifiers that are compatible with the...

    IEEE 1394 Devices, continued Tips for Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices • 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. • 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. • Place devices with the slowest communication speed at the end of the chain. Sometimes the communica- tion speed is marked near the IEEE 1394 connector with an “S” number. The higher the number, the faster the communication speed. This TV has a communica- tion speed of s400. Devices with slow communica- tion speeds can interfere with IEEE 1394 signals from faster devices. When setting up a digital recording between a faster device and a slower device, make the slower device the source and make the faster device the recorder. • Use IEEE 1394 cables 15 feet or less in length between devices. • This TV is an IEEE 1394a device. It can be used with an IEEE 1394b system when an IEEE-1394a-to-1394b convertor is used. IEEE 1394b systems are capable of greater distances and multi-room applications.

  • Page 31: Ir Emitter Netcommand® And Tv Guide On Screen

    IR Emitter NetCommand® and TV Guide On Screen An IR emitter cable is included with the TV.
