Connecting the Iomega TV to a TV
The Iomega TV supports several options for connecting to video and audio on your TV or home entertainment center. Choose the option that provides the best quality video and audio supported by your TV.
HDMI — This is the best connection to use with an HDTV. It uses a single cable for both video and audio.
Composite video with L/R audio — This connection type is compatible with most standard TVs. It uses a single cable for video and audio.
Optical audio — This connection provides better sound quality than composite L/R audio. You will need an optical cable for this connection and a stereo receiver that supports optical audio.
NOTE: Do not connect the Iomega TV through a VCR. Video signals fed through a VCR may be affected by copyright protection systems and the picture will be distorted on the television.
HDMI (high-definition media interface) supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio, on a single cable connection. This connection option is supported only on high-definition (HD) TVs.
Connect the HDMI cable to the back of the Iomega TV.
Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connection on the TV set.
Composite Video Connection
Composite video is compatible with most TV sets. The following instructions use the composite video connector on the Iomega TV and the L/R audio connectors.
Connect the composite AV cable to the composite video output connector (yellow) and the L/R audio output connectors (red and white) on the back of the Iomega TV, matching the colors.
Connect the yellow (video) connector on the other end of the cable to the composite VIDEO input connection on the TV set.
Connect the white connector to the Left (L) audio input connection on the TV set.
Connect the red connector to the Right (R) audio input connection on the TV set.
Optical Audio Connection
The Iomega TV includes an optical audio connector for high quality digital audio output. You will need to obtain an optical audio cable to connect the Iomega TV to an AV amplifier (receiver) with a digital audio decoder.
NOTE: You will get multi-channel sound effect only if the audio source file carries it.
