Connecting Your TV

If you haven't connected electronic equipment before, or you have been frustrated in the past, you may wish to read this
section. (Cables are not supplied.)
A coaxial cable is the standard cable that comes in from your
G
antenna or cable converter box. Coaxial cables use "F"
connectors.
Audio and video cables are usually color coded according to
G
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 (or mono) left channel. If you look at
the rear panel of the TV, you will see that the terminals are
color coded in the same manner as the cables.
S-video cables provide better picture performance. S-video
G
cables can only be used with S-video compatible components.
ColorStream™ cables come in sets of three and provide the
G
best picture performance. ColorStream cables can only be
used with ColorStream compatible components.
