Connecting your TV
Note: Cables are not supplied with your TV.
Coaxial cable is the cable that comes in from your antenna, cable TV service,
or cable converter box. Coaxial cable uses "F" connectors.
Standard A/V (audio/video) cables usually come in sets of three, and are
typically color-coded according to use: yellow for video, red for stereo right audio,
and white for stereo left (or mono) audio. On your TV's back panel, the standard
A/V inputs are color-coded in the same manner as the cables.
S-Video cable is for use with video equipment that has an S-Video input.
Component video cables come in sets of three, and are for use with video
equipment that has component video inputs. (ColorStream
of component video.)
NOTE REGARDING PICTURE QUALITY
When connecting video equipment to your Toshiba TV:
For GOOD picture quality: Use a standard yellow video cable.
For BETTER picture quality: If your equipment has an S-video input, use an
S-video cable instead of a standard yellow video cable. (You still must
connect the standard red and white audio cables for full system connection,
but do not connect the standard yellow video cable at the same time, or the
picture performance will be unacceptable.)
For BEST picture quality: If your equipment has component video inputs,
use component video cables instead of a standard video or S-video cable.
(You still must connect the standard red and white audio cables for full system
connection, but do not connect the standard yellow video cable or an S-Video
cable at the same time.)
Connecting a VCR
This connection allows you to watch local channels and video pro-
grams, play or record on the VCR while watching TV, and record
from one channel while watching another channel.
You will need:
• one coaxial cable
• one pair of audio cables (one single audio cable for a mono VCR)
• one video cable (see "Note Regarding Picture Quality," above)
