Connecting External Devices & NetCommand ® Setup NetCommand is able to control many current audio and video devices by sending remote control signals from the TV to each device through IR emitters. Additionally, it is also able to learn the remote control signals used by most audio video devices not already in the TV’s memory. NetCommand can automatically switch the TV and compatible or learned Audio/Video (A/V) Receivers to the correct input used with each device.
Connecting a Wall Outlet Cable or Cable Box Wall Outlet Cable Cable Box (can be used with a CableCARD™) Figure 1 It is very important to connect the incoming cable for your primary viewing source to ANT-1, especially for CableCARD™ use. 1. Connect the primary incoming coaxial lead cable to ANT-1 MAIN on the TV back panel. 2. For an optional secondary antenna source, connect an antenna (or cable) to ANT-2 AUX. 3.
CableCARD™ Technology CableCARD Technology CableCARD is a nationwide system standard that allows your local cable TV provider to supply you with an access card customized to your account. This card allows your TV to receive, decode and unscramble the premium digital channels included in your cable TV subscription without the use of a cable box. It also allows your cable provider to automatically update and change your subscription.
Connecting a Lead Antenna or Separate UHF and VHF Antenna Lead Antenna (not for use with CableCARD™) Figure 3 For antennas with twin flat lead A 300-Ohm to 75-Ohm transformer is required. This is not included with the TV, but is available at most electronics stores. 1. For antenna with twin flat leads, connect the 300-Ohm twin leads to the 300-Ohm to 75-Ohm transformer. 2. Push the 75-Ohm side of the transformer onto ANT-1 MAIN on the TV back panel. For cable or antenna with coaxial lead 3.
Connecting an Antenna or Wall Outlet Cable to a VCR (Audio & Video) Antenna or Wall Outlet Cable to a VCR (Audio & Video) Figure 5 A two-way RF splitter, 3 coaxial cables, right and left audio cables and a S-Video or Video cables are required. These are not included with the TV. 5. Connect either an S-Video or Video cable from VIDEO OUT on the VCR back panel to INPUT-1 VIDEO on the TV back panel. Only one type of video cable should be connected. S-Video is recommended, if available. 1.
Connecting a Cable Box to a VCR (Audio & Video) Cable Box to a VCR (Audio & Video) Figure 6 A two-way RF splitter, 4 coaxial cables, right and left audio cables and an S-Video or Video cable are required. These are not included with the TV. 1. Connect the incoming cable to IN on the RF splitter. 2. Connect one coaxial cable from OUT on the RF splitter to ANTENNA IN on the cable box back panel. 3. Connect one coaxial cable from OUT on the RF splitter to ANT-1 MAIN on the TV back panel. 4.
Connecting an A/V Receiver or Stereo System or a Satellite Receiver or Other Device with S-Video A/V Receiver or Stereo System Figure 7 A digital audio cable and stereo audio cables are required. The digital audio cable is provided. The stereo audio cables are not included with the TV. 1. Connect a set of stereo audio cables from OUTPUT AUDIO 2 on the TV back panel to the TV AUDIO INPUT on the back of the A/V receiver.
Connecting a DVD Player with Component Video or Computer with a PC Monitor Output Computer with a PC Monitor Output DVD Player with Component Video Figure 10 Figure 9 Component video cables and audio cables are required. These are not included with the TV. 1. Connect PC Monitor Out from the computer to PC Input on the TV back panel using a PC compatible monitor cable. See Appendix B for PC signal compatibility. 1.
DTV Connectors and Adaptors Connecting a DTV Receiver with Component Video DTV Connectors and Adaptors Figure 11 The TV back panel has 5 RCA-type connectors for the Input-DTV. The back panel of your external DTV receiver may use RCA-type connectors or BNC-type connectors. If your DTV receiver comes with BNC type connections, you will need to purchase BNC to RCA adaptors to connect the TV to the DTV receiver. These adaptors should be available at most electronic supply stores.
Connecting a DTV Receiver with RGB, HV Video DTV Receiver with RGB, HV Video Figure 13 A coaxial splitter, RGB, HV and audio cables are required. These are not included with the TV. 1. Connect the outside antenna, cable or satellite to ANT or SATELLITE IN on the DTV receiver (see your DTV receiver owner’s guide for instructions and cable compatibility).
Connecting M-Link Control RS-232C Connection, or a HDMI or DVI Device M-Link Control RS-232C Connection Figure 14 A 9 pin RS-232C cable is required. This is not included with the TV. It may be available at your local electronics retailer When used as a M-Link Control, you can connect to a Mitsubishi HD Receiver/Controller, like the HD-5000 or HD-6000. When used as a RS-232C, you can connect to other external controllers. See mitsubish-tv.com for RS-232C command protocol.
Connecting the IR Emitter NetCommand ® IR Emitter NetCommand® Figure 17 A quadruple IR Emitter cable is included with the TV. The emitters connected to these jacks are used by the NetCommand system to control other devices such as VCRs, DVD players, Cable boxes and Satellite receivers. 6. If you are not going to be using all emitter ends, place the unused ends behind the devices so that they cannot send signals to the remote control sensors. 1.
Connecting Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices It is possible to connect devices to the TV that have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not compatible with the TV or with the NetCommand® control system. Areas of compatibility to consider are: 1. Digital Video Signals The TV is able to decode MPEG2 video. Other types of digital video, such as DV video provided by some camcorders, must be decoded by the source device and sent to the TV as analog video or S-Video.
Connecting Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices, continued Connection Styles There are two different connection styles that can be used when connecting IEEE 1394 devices. Use the style that fits your network of audio/video products. 4-Pin Style vs. 6-Pin Style Connectors There are two different types of connectors used for IEEE 1394 terminals and cables, a 4-pin and a 6-pin style.
Connecting: Helpful Hints Q My VCR (or other device) does not have two sets of stereo audio outputs. How can I connect this device’s audio to both the TV and the A/V Receiver? A. There are two solutions: 1. Connect the single set of stereo audio outputs to the TV only. Use Edit NetCommand® to change the setup of this device. In the Connection screen of “Change” make sure both audio and video for the TV input are checkmarked and neither the audio or the video for the AVR input are check marked.
