Connecting the TV signal sources
WARNING: Before connecting the TV to any
other electronic device, unplug power for
the TV and the electronic device.
The following is an explanation of the types of
connections that are used for a coaxial cable.
If your outdoor antenna uses a 75-ohm coaxial cable
with an F-type connector, screw it onto the ANT/Cable
In connector on the rear of the TV set.
A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with
an F-type connector that can easily be attached to
a connector without tools (sold separately).
A 300-ohm system is a flat, twin-lead cable that
can be attached to a 75-ohm connector through a
300/75-ohm adapter (sold separately).
An F-type connector should be
finger-tightened only. When connecting the
RF cable to the TV, do not use tools to
tighten the F-type connector, because this
may cause damage to the TV.

Connecting the cable TV or
off-the-air broadcast antenna
Use standard 75-ohm coaxial cable to connect a
ground antenna or cable TV input source to the TV. Use
shielded coaxial cable to reduce radio frequency (RF)
Optional equipment, cable TV service, and all cables
are sold separately.
