You will need:
coaxial cables
standard A/V cables
– For better picture performance, if your VCR has S-video, 
connect an S-video cable and standard (analog) audio 
cables to the VIDEO-2 inputs on the side panel (instead of 
the VIDEO-1 inputs). Do not connect both types of video 
cable to VIDEO-2 at the same time or the picture 
performance will be unacceptable.
– If you have a mono VCR, connect L/MONO on the TV to 
your VCR’s audio out terminal using the white audio cable 
only.
standard audio cables
component video cables
– You can connect the component video cables (plus audio 
cables) from the DVD player or satellite receiver to either 
set of ColorStream terminals on the TV (HD-1 or HD-2). 
The ColorStream HD-1 and HD-2 terminals can be used 
with Progressive (480p, 720p) and Interlaced (480i, 1080i) 
scan systems. A 1080i signal will provide the best picture 
performance.
– If your DVD player or satellite receiver does not have 
component video, connect a standard A/V cable to 
VIDEO-1. If your DVD player has HDMI video, see 
page 15.
