Setting Up the Projection TV

Connecting a VCR and Cable Box

20
Use this hookup if
Your cable TV company scrambles some channels, but not all of
them (pay channels vs. regular cable channels), so you need to
use a cable box
You want to use the Twin View or Scrolling Channel Index
feature.
With this setup you can
Use the projection TV remote control to change channels using
your cable box when the signal is scrambled.
Use the projection TV remote control to change channels using
your projection TV when the signal is not scrambled. (Your
projection TV's tuner provides a better signal than the cable box.)
Use the Twin View and Scrolling Channel Index features.
Record both regular cable TV and scrambled channels.
To connect a cable box and a VCR, you will need
A small inexpensive device known as a splitter.
Three short coaxial cables.
Either a combination audio/video cable, or an S VIDEO cable
and audio cables.
1
Connect the CATV cable to the single (input) jack of the splitter.
2
Use a coaxial cable to connect one of the two output jacks of the
splitter to the projection TV's CABLE jack.
3
Use a coaxial cable to connect the other output jack of the splitter
to the input jack of the cable box.
4
Use a coaxial cable to connect the output jack of the cable box to
the input jack of the VCR.
5
Use the video line (yellow) of a combination audio/video (A/V)
cable to connect the video output jack of the VCR to the video
input jack of the projection TV.
If your VCR has an S VIDEO jack, you can substitute an S VIDEO cable for
the video line of an A/V cable. The S VIDEO cable will provide improved
video signal quality.
6
Connect the left (white) and right (red) audio output channels of
the VCR to the respective input jacks on the projection TV.
