Connecting the Video Out to TV

Choose one of the three methods for connecting to a TV.



METHOD 1 Composite Video ............... Good Quality

Connect the supplied video cable from the VIDEO OUT jack on the back panel of the system to the VIDEO IN jack on your television.

METHOD 2 Component (Progressive Scan) Video ............... Better Quality

If your television is equipped with Component Video inputs, connect a component video cable (not supplied) from the Pr, Pb and Y jacks on the back panel of the system to the corresponding jacks on your television.

Note When the Progressive scan mode is selected, the VIDEO output do not feed any signal.
