6 Channel Installation 6.1 Satellite Installation About Installing Satellites Up to 4 Satellites You can install up to 4 satellites (4 LNBs) on this TV. Select the exact number of satellites you wish to install at the start of the installation. This will speed up the installation. Unicable You can use a Unicable system* to connect the antenna dish to the TV. You can select Unicable for up to 4 satellites at the start of the installation. * Note: supports Unicable 1 (EN50494) and Unicable 2 (EN50607/JESS). Start the Installation Make sure your satellite dish is connected correctly and is perfectly aligned before you start the installation. To start the satellite installation… 1 - Select Settings > Channels > Satellite Installation and press OK. Enter your PIN code if necessary. 2 - Select Search for Satellite and press OK. 3 - Select Search and press OK. TV will search for satellites. 4 - Select Install and press OK. The TV shows the current satellite installation setup. If you want to change this setup, select Settings. If you don't want to change the setup, select Search. Go to step 5. 5 - In Installation System, select the number of satellites you want to install or select one of the Unicable systems. When you select Unicable, you can choose the User Band Numbers and enter the User Band Frequencies for each tuner. In some countries, you can adjust some expert settings for each LNB in More Settings. 6 - The TV will search for the satellites available on the alignment of your antenna dish. This may take a few minutes. If a satellite is found, its name and reception strength are shown on screen. 7 - When the TV found the satellites you need, select Install. 8 - If a satellite offers Channel Packages, the TV will show the available packages for that satellite. Select the package you need. Some packages offer a Quick or Full install for their available channels, select one or the other. The TV will install the satellite channels and radio stations. 9 - To store the satellite setup and installed channels and radio stations, select Finish. Satellite Installation Settings The satellite installation settings are preset according your country. These settings determine how the TV searches and installs satellites and its channels. You can always change these settings. To change the satellite installation settings… 1 - Start the satellite installation. 2 - On the screen where you can start searching for satellites, select Settings and press OK. 3 - Select the number of satellites you want to install or select one of the Unicable systems. When you select Unicable, you can choose the User Band Numbers and enter the User Band Frequencies for each tuner. 4 - When you're done, select Next and press OK. 5 - On the Settings menu, press the colour key  Done to return to the screen to start searching for satellites. Homing Transponder and LNB In some countries, you can adjust the expert settings for homing transponder and each LNB. Only use or change these settings when a normal installation fails. If you have non-standard satellite equipment, you can use these settings to overrule the standard settings. Some providers might give you some transponder or LNB valeus which you can enter here. Satellite CAMs If you use a CAM – a Conditional Access Module with a smart card – to watch satellite channels, we recommend to do the satellite installation with the CAM inserted in the TV. Most CAMs are used to descramble channels. Newest generation CAMs can install all the satellite channels by themselves on your TV. The CAM will invite you to install its satellite(s) and channels. These CAMs not only install and descramble the channels but also handle regular channel updates. 20

Channel Packages Satellite operators can offer channel packages that bundle free channels (free-to-air) and offer a sorting that suits a country. Some satellites offer subscription packages - a collection of channels you pay for. If you choose a subscription package, the TV might ask you to select a Quick or Full installation. Select Quick to install the channels of the package only or select Full to install the package and all other available channels too. We recommend a Quick installation for subscription packages. If you have additional satellites that are not part of your subscription package, we recommend a Full installation. All installed channels are put in the channels list All. Unicable Setup The Unicable System You can use a Single Cable system or Unicable system* to connect the antenna dish to the TV. A Single Cable system uses one cable to connect the satellite dish to all satellite tuners in its system. A Single Cable system is typically used in apartment buildings. If you use a Unicable system, the TV will ask you to assign a user band number and corresponding frequency during the installation. You can install up to 4 satellites with Unicable on this TV. If you notice some missing channels after a Unicable installation, another installation might have been done at the same moment on the Unicable system. Do the installation again to install the missing channels. * Note: supports Unicable 1 (EN50494) and Unicable 2 (EN50607/JESS). User Band Number In a Unicable system, each connected satellite tuner must be numbered (e.g. 0, 1, 2 or 3, etc.). You can find the available user bands and their number on the Unicable switchbox. User band is sometimes shortened as UB. There are Unicable switchboxes that offer 4 or 8 user bands. If you select Unicable in the settings, the TV will ask you to assign the unique user band number for each built-in satellite tuners. A satellite tuner cannot have the same user band number as another satellite tuner in the Unicable system. User Band Frequency Next to the unique user band number, the built-in satellite receiver needs the frequency of the selected user band number. These frequencies are mostly shown next to the user band number on a Unicable switchbox. Manual Channel Update You can always start an channel update yourself. To start a channel update manually… 1 - Select Settings > Channels > Satellite Installation and press OK. 2 - Select Search for Channels and press OK. 3 - Select Update Channels and press OK. The TV will start updating. The update may take a few minutes. 4 - Follow the instructions on screen. The update may take a few minutes. 5 - Select Finish and press OK. Manual Installation Manual Installation is intended for expert users. You can use Manual Installation to quickly add new channels from a satellite transponder. You need to know the frequency and polarization of the transponder. The TV will install all channels of that transponder. If the transponder was installed before, all its channels - the former and the new ones - are moved to the end of the channel list All. You cannot use Manual installation if you need to change the number of satellites. If this is needed, you have to do a complete installation with Install Satellites. To install a transponder… 1 - Select Settings > Channels > Satellite Installation and press OK. 2 - Select Manual Installation and press  (right) to enter the menu. 3 - If you have more than 1 satellite installed, select LNB for which you want to add channels. 4 - Set the Polarisation you need.

Homing Transponder and LNB In some countries, you can adjust the expert settings for homing transponder and each LNB. Only use or change these settings when a normal installation fails. If you have non-standard satellite equipment, you can use these settings to overrule the standard settings. Some providers might give you some transponder or LNB values which you can enter here. LNB Power By default, LNB Power is set to Automatic. 22 kHz Tone By default, the Tone is set to Automatic. Low LO Frequency / High LO Frequency The local oscillator frequencies are set to standard values. Adjust the values only in case of exceptional equipment that needs different values. Problems The TV cannot find the satellites I want or the TV installs the same satellite twice • Make sure that the correct number of satellites is set in Settings at the start of the installation. You can set the TV to search for One, Two or 3/4 satellites. A dual head LNB cannot find a second satellite • If the TV finds one satellite but cannot find a second one, turn the dish a few degrees. Align the dish to get the strongest signal on the first satellite. Check the signal strength indicator of the first satellite on screen. With the first satellite set at the strongest signal, select Search again to find the second satellite. • Make sure the settings are set to Two Satellites. Changing the installation settings did not solve my problem • All settings, satellites and channels are only stored at the end of the installation when you finish. All satellite channels are gone • If you use a Unicable system, make sure you assigned two unique user band numbers for both built-in tuners in the Unicable settings. It might be that another satellite receiver in your Unicable system is using the same user band number. Some satellite channels seem to have disappeared from the channel list • If some channels seem to be gone or displaced, the broadcaster might have changed the transponder location of these channels. To restore the channel positions in the channel list, you can try an update of the channel package. I cannot remove a satellite • Subscription packages do not allow removing a satellite. To remove the satellite, you have to do a complete installation again and select another package. Sometimes the reception is poor • Check if the satellite dish is solidly mounted. Strong winds can move the dish. • Snow and rain can degrade the reception. 6.2 Antenna Installation Update Channels Automatic Channel Update If you receive digital channels, you can set the TV to automatically update these channels.

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 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. 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 and eARC All of the HDMI connections on the TV have HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel). If the device, typically a Home Theatre System (HTS), soundbar or AV receiver, 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 eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) is an advancement over the previous ARC. It covers all ARC features but with higher bandwidth and speed. eARC supports high quality audio transmission up to192kHz, 24-bit, uncompressed 5.1 and 7.1, and 32-channel uncompressed audio. Note: HDMI eARC is only available on HDMI 2. Use HDMI cable with Ethernet for eARC. Only 1 eARC device is available at a time.
