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.
For Subscribers to Basic Cable TV Service
For basic cable service not requiring a Converter/Descrambler box,
connect the CATV 75 ohm Coaxial Cable directly to the Antenna Jack
on the back of the television.
For Subscribers to Scrambled Cable TV Service
If you subscribe to a cable service that requires the use of a Converter/
Descrambler box, connect the incoming cable to the Converter/
Descrambler box and connect the output of the box to the Antenna
Jack on the back of the television. Follow the connections shown
below. Set the television to the output of the Converter/Descrambler
box (usually channel 3 or 4) and use the Converter/Descrambler box to
select channels.
For Subscribers to Unscrambled Basic Cable with Scram-
bled Premium Channels
If you subscribe to a cable service in which basic cable channels are
unscrambled and premium channels require the use of a Converter/
Descrambler box, you may wish to use a two-set signal splitter (some-
times called a "two-set coupler") and an A/B Switch box from the cable
installer or an electronics supply store. Follow the connections shown
below. With the switch in the "B" position, you can directly tune any
nonscrambled channels on your TV. With the switch in the "A" position,
tune your TV to the output of the Converter/Descrambler box (usually
channel 3 or 4) and use the box to tune scrambled channels.
