Note: These instructions assume you already have an over-the-air antenna
installed. If you need help choosing or installing an over-the-air antenna, refer to
or your local retailer.
Your DTVPa( to Your TV
Important Safety Note: Do not connect your TV or your DTVPal to a
power supply until after you have properly connected all of the cables
using the following instructions.
DTVPal Back Panel Connections
On the back of your TV, locate the ANTENNAIN connection, which connects
your TV to your over-the-air antenna. This connection may be labeled
OVER-THE-AIRANTENNA IN, CABLE IN, COAX IN, or another name. Refer to
your TV's User Guide for help locating this connection.
Disconnect the coaxial cable from your TV's ANTENNAIN connection.
Note: If your TV uses twin-lead (300 ohm) connections, you will need to
obtain and install a 75 ohm to 300 ohm converter on your TV. This
converter can be found at most consumer electronics stores.
Look at the back of your DTVPal, and locate the OVER-THE-AIRANTENNAIN
connection (refer to image above). Connect the coaxial cable from step 2
to your DTVPaI's OVER-THE-AIRANTENNAIN connection. Do not use a
wrench to tighten this connection, as you may damage your DTVPal.
Note: The DTVPal includes only a digital over-the-air tuner. If channels in
your area are still broadcasting in analog signals, you can view these
channels by pressing the ANALOG
button on the
DTVPal remote, and changing channels using the TV's remote control.
Determine the connection type you'll use to connect your DTVPal to your
TV. The TV SET OUT connection uses a coaxial cable to connect to the
TV's ANTENNAIN connection, and carries video and mono audio on RF
channels 3 or 4 (step 5). Alternatively, if your TV has RCA connectors for
audio and video, you can use RCA cables to connect from the AUDIO/VIDEO
connection (RCA-type) of your DTVPal to your TV's video input (go to
step 6).
