Setting Up the LCD Projection TV
About Using CableCARD
If you are planning to use a separate cable box for digital cable TV services, you may be able to receive
programming using this TV with the CableCARD instead — except in the following circumstances:
Your cable TV company does not provide CableCARD service in your viewing area.
You want to access your cable TV company's interactive or advanced features (such as video-on-
demand or, is some cases, pay-per-view). At this time, these services require a bidirectional link,
which are only available through the use of a separate set-top box. CableCARD is currently a
unidirectional device only, and cannot provide these advanced services.
Check with your cable TV company for CableCARD service details, limitations, pricing, and
availability, all of which are determined by your cable TV company — not Sony.
CableCARD provides cable subscribers with access to digitally encrypted
cable channels — without the need for a set-top box — that will enable you
to receive not only standard definition but also high definition television. The
CableCARD, which is provided by your cable TV company, is inserted into
the TV's rear panel CableCARD slot. After the service is activated with your
cable TV company, the card replaces the need for a separate set-top box.
Before you can use CableCARD service, you need to insert the CableCARD
(supplied by your cable TV company) and activate the service, as described
Turn off the TV.
Insert the CableCARD into the TV's CableCARD slot.
CAUTION: Inserting the CableCARD incorrectly may result in permanent
damage to the card and the TV.
