7 Connect Devices 7.1 About Connections Connectivity Guide Always connect a device to the TV with the highest quality connection available. Also, use good quality cables to ensure a good transfer of picture and sound. When you connect a device, the TV recognizes its type and gives each device a correct type name. You can change the type name if you wish. If a correct type name for a device is set, the TV automatically switches to the ideal TV settings when you switch to this device in the Sources menu. Antenna port If you have a Set-top box (a digital receiver) or Recorder, connect the antenna cables to run the antenna signal through the Set-top box and/or Recorder first before it enters the TV. In this way, the antenna and the Set-top box can send possible additional channels to the Recorder to record. HDMI ports HDMI Quality An HDMI connection has the best picture and sound quality. One HDMI cable combines video and audio signals. Use an HDMI cable for TV signal. For best signal quality transfer, use a High speed HDMI cable and do not use an HDMI cable longer than 5 m. If a device connected with HDMI is not working correctly, check if a different HDMI Ultra HD setting can solve this problem. In Help, press the colour key  Keywords and look up HDMI Ultra HD. Copy protection HDMI ports support HDCP 2.2 (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). HDCP is a copy protection signal that prevents copying content from a DVD disc or Blu-ray Disc. Also referred to as DRM (Digital Rights Management). HDMI ARC All of the HDMI connections on the TV have HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel). If the device, typically a Home Theatre System (HTS), also has the HDMI ARC connection, connect it to any of the HDMI connections on this TV. With the HDMI ARC connection, you do not need to connect the extra audio cable that sends the sound of the TV picture to the HTS. The HDMI ARC connection combines both signals. You can use any HDMI connection on this TV to connect the HTS but ARC is only available for 1 device/connection at a time. HDMI CEC - EasyLink An HDMI connection has the best picture and sound quality. One HDMI cable combines video and audio signals. Use an HDMI cable for High Definition (HD) TV signals. For best signal quality transfer, use a High speed HDMI cable and do not use an HDMI cable longer than 5 m. Connect HDMI CEC-compatible devices to your TV, you can operate them with the TV remote control. EasyLink HDMI CEC must be switched on on the TV and the connected device. Switch on EasyLink  Settings > General settings > EasyLink > EasyLink > On. Operate HDMI CEC-compatible devices with TV remote control  Settings > General settings > EasyLink > EasyLink remote control > On.
