The procedures that follow describe how to connect
optional equipment for each type of AV connection,
including the audio connections when applicable.
Connecting the TV signal sources
WARNING: Before connecting the TV to any
other electronic device, unplug the TV and
electronic device AC power cords from the
AC power outlet.
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 at 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.
