Sanyo HT32546 Flat Screen Standard Definition Integrated Digital Television

SDTV  (Standard Definition Digital TV)
480 horizontal lines of interlaced scanning (480i) provide an exceptionally clean and detailed picture uncluttered by weak signal interference found on analog televisions. Equipped with both analog (NTSC) and digital (ATSC) tuners to receive DTV off-air (terrestrial) signals and Clear QAM unscrambled digital cable channels.

An increasing number of TV stations are broadcasting DTV versions of some of their regular programming at the same time as their NTSC broadcasts using different channels assigned to them by the FCC. This unit can receive and decode all 18 ATSC digital television formats. All broadcasters are scheduled to switch to DTV broadcasts by February 2009.

Almost all the digital channels can be received using a UHF antenna. Indoor antennas like rabbit ears or bowtie types should work if you are near the broadcast tower. But you will need a proper outdoor antenna if you are located 30-40 miles from the tower. Antenna height and an unobstructed line of sight affect signal reception. Buildings, steeples, towers and other structures taller than four stories within four blocks of your location can mask or deflect signals.

Component Video Input (Y-Pb-Pr )
Three component video inputs take advantage of DVD players and other devices with component video outputs. Video signal is divided into three separate elements; red (Pr), blue (Pb) and luminance or image brightness (Y). Superior to both composite and S-video because it delivers a quality picture with greater resolution, better color accuracy, and less color bleeding.

Audio/Video Connection Package includes
* One Set of Component Input Jacks or
* One S-Video Input Jack or
* Two sets of Composite Video Input Jacks (1 Front/1 Rear)
* Two sets of Audio Input (R/L) Jacks (1 Front/1 Rear)

Enjoy a better quality picture and connect more equipment directly to your TV using a variety of A/V Input Jacks. The Component and S-Video Input Jacks are perfect for connecting a DVD player, DSS, or Super-VHS VCR. Connect a stereo system to the Audio Output Jacks or the Optical Digital Output Jack for improved sound.
