Are there other ways to view High Deﬁnition (HD) video?
Besides using an antenna as mentioned above, you can also use a set-top box to receive digital video. Contact your cable service
provider or satellite provider to purchase digital programming and have them connect the box to ensure you are viewing channels
in the best way.
How do I tell an analog channel from a digital channel?
Press the DISPLAY button to display the Channel Bar. Look at the top right corner of the screen. An "A" is displayed for an analog
channel. A "D" is displayed for a digital channel.
Note: Since the analog TV in America has been cut off, we reserve analog TV function only for some unexpected use.
Why are there bars on my screen, and can I get rid of them?
Most digital video is sent in a 16/9 format which ﬁlls your screen, but is sometimes sent in 4/3 which does not ﬁll your screen. It
depends on how the station or device connected to your TV is formatting the video. If there are bars on the screen, press the
ASPECT button to try a different format that may eliminate the bars. Some bars can't be removed because of the way the format
is sent by the broadcaster. The format changes as you press the ASPECT button and the format type is displayed at the bottom
of the screen. For more information on screen formats, go to page 23.
Why does channel search ﬁnd a lot of channels, but when I try to tune to them, there's nothing there?
Some channels don't carry programming, such as video On Demand. When channels are unavailable, your TV screen is blank or
appears like snow. You probably want to remove these channels from your channel list. Remove these in the Channel List Menu.
Go to page 25 for more information.
Why does the ﬁrst channel search take a long time?
If you have both analog and digital channels, the TV is looking for all available channels in the channel list. If you do have digital
channels, the TV is also searching for scrambled channels, non-scrambled channels, and each sub-channel of that digital channel.
