Congratulations! You have purchased one of the finest color TVs on the market. The goal of this manual is to guide you through setting up and operating your Toshiba TV as quickly as possible. You may need to purchase other audio or video cables to connect your equipment.
Connecting your TV • A coaxial cable is the standard cable that comes in from your antenna or cable converter box. Coaxial cables use “F” connectors. • Standard A/V (audio/video) cables are usually color coded accord- ing to use: yellow for video and red and white for audio. The red audio cable is for the stereo right channel, and the white audio cable is for the stereo left (or mono) channel.
Connecting a cable converter box This television has an extended tuning range and can tune most cable channels without using a cable company supplied converter box. Some cable companies offer “premium pay channels” in which the signal is scrambled. Descrambling these signals for normal viewing requires the use of a descrambler device, which is generally provided by the cable company.
