instructions.


Connecting your television and DVD equipment

High-quality audio and video simply with HDMI connection

The HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connection means you only 

need one cable to transmit digital audio and video between two pieces of 

equipment. It also carries a command signal that allows you to control your 

Panasonic TV (VIERA) or DVD recorder (DIGA) with one touch of a button 

(

 page 21).

DVD-Audio multi-channel audio is carried as a digital signal. Some DVD 

equipment (e.g. with HDMI Ver.1.0) cannot output multi-channel audio as a 

digital signal. Use the 6-channel discrete connection (

 pages 8 and 20) if this 

is the case.

The HDMI indicator lights when you are using this connection.

To play audio from the television through speakers connected to this unit,

second.
