Input and Output Notes
HDTV Tuner: The TV has
built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't
separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV
or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
LCD Panel: The LCD TV features a 10-bit video processor,
60Hz refresh rate, and wide viewing angle for clear high-action home theater
DynaLight Dynamic Back-Light Control: Toshiba's DynaLight Back-Light Control utilizes advanced
image processing to monitor the brightness of each video frame, and adjust
the backlight intensity accordingly. This precision creates seamless transitions with deep blacks for increased detail and depth analysis.
Native Resolution: The LCD television displays
all inputs at a resolution of 720p (1366 x 768). The HDMI inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, VGA,
SVGA and XGA signals while the component video inputs
will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i.
CableClear DNR: Designed to optimize poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, this noise
reduction system eliminates video noise ("snow") for a clean crisp image. This
system detects the quality of the incoming video signal, and automatically
applies the needed amount of video optimization.
Picture Size: When viewing a
source, you can choose one of the following picture sizes:
- Natural: image is
displayed close to its originally formatted proportion
- TheaterWide 1: the picture is
non-uniformly enlarged; the center of the picture remains close to its true
proportion, but the left and right edges are stretched wider to fill the
screen, used primarily with a 4:3 source
- TheaterWide 2: entire
picture is uniformly enlarged, used primarily with a letter box source
- TheaterWide 3: picture is
non-uniformly enlarged; the picture is stretched wider to fill the width of
the screen and stretched slightly taller, used primarily with letter box
programs with subtitles
- Full: mainly
designed for receiving a squeezed 4:3 signal (a 480i or 480p16:9 program squeezed into
a 4:3 transmission), the picture is stretched wider to
fill the screen, but not taller, none of the picture is
- 4:3 HD: provides a 4:3 aspect ratio of a 720p, 1080i or
1080p signal; sidebars fill the empty vertical spaces while not distorting
the picture from its original size
- Native: when receiving a 720p, 1080i or 1080p signal
program, Native Mode restores the size of the picture by the 3-5% that is
generally lost during the normal over-scanning that occurs on traditional
sets. It also avoids unnecessary scaling of HD signals that can reduce
overall image resolution and picture quality.
- Dot-by-Dot: non-scaling display for VGA, SVGA, XGA,
WXGA and SXGA sources only

for the Theater Wide 2 and TheaterWide 3 modes for each input. You can adjust

the TV receives a 480i signal, the picture size is automatically selected; a 4:3
signal is set to Natural, a 16:9 signal is set to Full, a 4:3 letterbox signal
is set to Theater Wide 2. If the signal's aspect is not defined, the Picture
Size defaults to the last manually chosen setting.
Picture Modes: You can select one of the following picture
modes for each input:
- Sports: bright and dynamic picture

Input and Output Notes
Inputs: The two HDMI inputs consist of a single type-A connector HDMI jack. The HDMI jacks can
accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP) from other devices (such as
digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. The HDMI jacks are compliant with the
E-EDID (Enhanced-Extended Display Identification) standards. If you want to connect a DVI-compatible device, you will
need an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. Since DVI does not carry audio signals, a
stereo 3.5mm audio input is provided for the HDMI 1 input. In addition to the
HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable, you will also need stereo audio cables. The HDMI 1
input can also be used to connect the TV to your PC along with the shared PC
stereo 3.5mm audio jack.
Note: The HDMI inputs
will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i video signals. The HDMI inputs
will support Linear PCM (sampling rate 32/44.1/48kHz) audio format.
RGB/PC Input: This connection
allows you to view the image of a personal computer on the TV screen. When
connecting the PC to the TV, you will need a 15-pin D-sub RGB computer cable and a PC
audio cable. The PC input shares the same 3.5mm audio input as the HDMI 1 input.
Dual Component Video Inputs: The two ColorStream
HD Component video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p,
480p, and 480i signals.
Digital Audio Output: An
optical digital output is provided to allow you to connect the unit to a
surround processor. The format can be set to Dolby
Digital or PCM.
