Question

How do I connect an external device via DVI?

Answer

When you make a DVI-HDMI connection you have to make a separate audio connection, since DVI does not support audio.

Follow these steps to connect the devices:

  1. Switch the external device and the TV off.
  2. Connect the DVI-to-HDMI adapter from the 'DVI' connection of the external device to the 'HDMI' connection of the TV.
  3. Connect the audio cable from the 'AUDIO OUT' connection of the external device to the 'AUDIO IN DVI/VGA' connection at the rear of the TV.
  4. Switch the external device and the TV on.

After connecting the devices, you have to manually add your DVI device to the Home menu in order to select the device to watch their programme. If a device is no longer connected to the TV, you can remove it from the home menu.

Follow these procedures to add your devices:

  1. Press the button on the remote control to access the home menu.
  2. Use the cursor buttons to select ADD YOUR DEVICES and press the 'OK' button.
  3. A message appears, prompting you to add a new device.
  4. Select START and press the 'OK' button.
  5. Use the cursor up or down to select a device and press the 'OK' button.
  6. Use the cursor up or down to select the TV connector you have used to connect the computer and press the 'OK' button.
    NOTE: If a particular connector has already been assigned to another device, it will not show up in the list of connectors.
  7. When the guide is completed, select CLOSE and press the 'OK' button.
  8. A new device icon is added to the Home menu.
  9. Repeat step 2 and 7 if you wish to add more devices.
  10. Press the button to exit the menu.

NOTE: You will not be able to change the TV connector of a previously added device. If you wish to change the TV connector of a previously added device, you will have to delete this device and re-add it with the desired connector.

Follow this procedure to remove your devices:

  1. Press the button on the remote control to access the home menu.
  2. Use the cursor buttons to select the device you wish to delete.
  3. Press the button.
  4. Select REMOVE THIS DEVICE and press the 'OK' button.
  5. A message appears, prompting you to remove the device.
  6. Select OK and press the 'OK' button.
  7. The selected device icon is deleted from the Home menu.
  8. Repeat step 2 and 6 if you wish to delete more devices.
  9. Press the button to exit the menu.
