device to the HDMI input
The HDMI input on your television receives digital 
audio and uncompressed digital video from an 
HDMI source device or uncompressed digital 
video from a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) source 
This input is designed to accept HDCP (High-Bandwidth 
Digital-Content Protection) programme material in digital 
form from EIA/CEA-861-D–compliant 
 consumer electronic 
devices (such as a set-top box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI 
output). For acceptable video signal formats, see page 74.
• Some early HDMI equipment may not work properly with 
your latest HDMI TV, due to the adoption of a new standard. 
Please unplug your HDMI cable first and then try setting the 
INSTAPORT™ and Enable Content Type options to “Off”. 
Your early HDMI source should operate properly with your

connect a cable from the audio output of the TV to the audio 
input of the AV amplifier to reproduce the audio received 
from the tuner of the TV through the AV amplifier.
