Captions Menu For analog channels, broadcasters can send either stan- dard closed captions or text service. Standard closed captions follow the dialogue of the characters on screen and display in a small section of the screen. Text-service closed captions often contain information such as weather or news and cover a large portion of the screen. For digital channels, broadcasters can send up to six dif- ferent captioning selections or can send analog captions that are the same as those sent by the analog station. Each TV station may broadcast only one or two types of captions or none at all. The TV cannot decode closed captions received on component or HDMI inputs. Figure 8. Captions menu Analog Captions The TV can display one of the following captions for analog sources: • CC1, CC2, CC3, or CC4: standard closed-caption signals Text1, Text2, Text3, or Text4: Text-service signals • On if mute: Closed captions appear when audio is • muted. When selected, press MUTE on the TV remote control to turn on/off the standard closed-caption signal CC1.

Overview 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 video as provided by cable boxes and some camcorders. Many camcorders provide DV video, which the TV cannot decode. Connect a DV 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 the IEEE 1394 cable. 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...
Overview, 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. 1394b systems are capable of greater distances and multi-room applications.

The limited warranty contained in this section shall continue for a period of one (1) year from the date of the original purchase at retail. If, after prompt notice within the warranty period, MDEA determines that the Embedded Software has failed to perform in accordance with such functional description in all material respects and if such failure is not due to accident, misuse, modification or misapplication of the Embedded Software, then MDEA shall modify or replace the nonconforming Embedded Software at no charge to you, which at MDEA’s sole discretion may be fulfilled by means of modification or replacement software contained on a replacement memory card for Customer installation.
