CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
• A 75 ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75 ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75 ohm cable to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR.
• Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber by
the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
channels. (Set your TV on channel 3 or 4. Typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your
cable TV company is explained below.
Please note: RF switch equipped with position A/B (not provided) is required.
“A” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view all unscrambled channels using the TV’s
“B” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view the scrambled channels via the converter/
descrambler using the converter’s channel keys.
