Connecting an AV device with an HDMI cable
This 4K TV has three high-powered HDMI version 2.0 inputs that enable you to connect 4K Ultra-HD external devices. For example,if you have an X-box or Blu-ray player that supports the 2.0 standard,more details will be transmitted to the TV screen to maximize your entertainment experience.
Please refer to the User Manual that came with your device for step-by-step instructions.
To connect an AV device with an HDMI cable (not provided):
1. Use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI output port of the AV device to the HDMI port of the TV.
2. Plug the connected devices into the HDMI port on the TV before switching it on.
3. Using your remote, press the [INPUT] button and select the corresponding HDMI input.
- Because the HDMI connector provides video and audio signals, it is not necessary to connect an audio cable.
- We strongly recommend to use HDMI Cable with 2 cores as shown in the figure
Connecting a headphone
You can connect headphone (not provided) to the AUDIO OUT port on your TV. While the headphone is connected, the sound from the built-in speakers will be disabled.
Connecting speakers or other audio receivers
To connect speakers or other audio receivers with an audio cable (not provided):
1. Use an audio cable to connect the digital audio in port of the audio receiver device to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT port of the TV. Another option is to use an RCA Y-cable (1/8”-stereo mini to L/R phono) to connect an analog sound system to the AUDIO OUT port of the TV.
2. Plug the connected devices into the main power socket before switching on the TV.
TIP: If you prefer to use Audio Return Channel, then see Connecting a digital sound bar to use Audio Return Channel (ARC)
- When a digital audio system is connected to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT port, decrease the TV and system volume.
- 5.1 CH (channel) audio is available when the TV is connected to an external device that supports a 5.1 channel surround sound.
- You can receive 5.1 channel audio in one of two ways. The first way is to connect the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT port from the device to the Amplifier. The second way is to connect the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT port on the back of the TV to the Optical port on the Amplifier. After you’ve completed one of the two methods then be sure to go into the Advanced Audio Settings of the TV and select RAW to receive the 5.1 channel audio. You will need to also go into the sound or audio settings of your device to ensure it is set to 5.1 Channel output. It may read ‘Bitstream’, ‘RAW’ or ‘Digital’.
Connecting a digital sound bar to use Audio Return Channel (ARC)
If you’d like to use the Audio Return Channel (ARC) feature to have sound sent from the TV back down an HDMI cable to a digital sound bar, then you will need to connect the cable to the HDMI / ARC port. By using this feature, you will also be able to control the sound bar with your TV remote instead of having to use multiple remotes for each device.
To connect a digital sound bar with an HDMI cable (not provided):
1. Connect the cable that’s attached to the sound bar to the HDMI / ARC port on the TV.
2. Turn on the sound bar by pressing the Power button.
3. Press the [ ] button on your remote and press the [ ˅ ] button of your remote to select Settings and then press OK to enter the Settings menu, go to System > HDMI-CEC.
4. Turn on the HDMI-CEC setting.
- Only digital sound bars that require a wired connection are compatible with the TV.
- If the device has an Input Selector feature then make sure to change it to TV
Connecting a USB device
You can connect the USB devices such as hard drives, USB sticks and digital cameras for browsing photos, listening music and watching recorded movies.
1. Connect a USB device into the USB port.
2. Select the Media type on the Media screen or Home screen. For more information, see Media
- When connecting a hard disk or a USB hub, always connect the mains adapter of the connected device to the power supply. Exceeding a total current consumption may result in damage. The USB1.1 and USB2.0 devices maximum current consumption are 500mA. The USB3.0 device maximum current consumption is 1A.
- For individual non-standard high-capacity mobile hard disk, if it’s impulse current is greater than or equal 1A, it may cause TV-rebooting or self-locking. So the TV does not support it.
- The USB port supports a voltage of 5V
Connecting Your TV to a Wireless or Wired Network
You have the option to connect your TV to a wireless or wired network to access the Internet. For more information about the network settings on TV, see Network Menu
Connecting to a wireless network
Our built-in wireless LAN adapter supports the IEEE 802.11 ac/b/g/n communication protocols and we recommend that you use an IEEE 802.11n or IEEE 802.11ac router. When you play a video over an IEEE 802.11 b/g connection, the video may not play smoothly.
- You must use the built-in Wireless LAN Adapter to use a wireless network because the set does not support an external USB network adapter.
- To use a wireless network, your TV must be connected to a wireless IP sharer. If the wireless IP sharer supports Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), your TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless network.
- Select a channel for the wireless IP sharer that is not currently being used. If the channel set for the wireless IP sharer is currently being used by another device nearby, this will result in interference and communication failure.
- If you apply a security system other than the systems listed below, it will not work with the TV.
- If Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11N mode is selected and the Encryption type is set to WEP, TKIP or TKIP-AES (WPS2 Mixed) for your Access Point (AP), then the TV will not support a connection in compliance with these Wi-Fi certification specifications.
- If your access point (AP) supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), you can connect to the network via Push Button Configuration (PBC) or PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS will automatically configure the SSID and WPA key in either mode.
Connecting to a wired (Ethernet) network
You can attach your TV to your LAN in one of the three following ways:
You can attach your TV to your LAN by connecting the LAN port on the back of your TV to an external modem using a Cat 5 LAN cable. See the illustration below.
You can attach your TV to your LAN by connecting the LAN port on the back of your TV to an IP Sharer which is connected to an external modem. Use an Ethernet cable for the connection. See the illustration below.
Depending on how your network is configured, you may be able to attach your TV to your LAN by connecting the LAN port on the back of your TV directly to a network wall outlet with an Ethernet cable. See the diagram below.
If you have a Dynamic Network, you should use an ADSL modem or router that supports Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS, so you don’t have to enter them manually. Most home networks are Dynamic Networks.
Some networks require a Static IP address. If your network requires a Static IP address, you must enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values manually on your TV’s Cable Setup Screen when you set up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
- You can use ADSL modems that support DHCP if your network requires a static IP address. ADSL modems that support DHCP also let you use static IP addresses.
