Welcome to the World of

Thank you for purchasing this Sony LCD Digital Color Television. This
manual is for model KDL-19M4000. Be sure to check the supplied
accessories against the list on page 39.

Connecting the TV

To display clear crisp pictures, you must connect your TV correctly and select
the correct Wide Mode to display the picture in the correct aspect ratio (see
“Changing the Wide Screen Mode” on page 21). It is strongly recommended to
connect the antenna/cable input using the 75-ohm coaxial cable (not supplied)
to receive optimum picture quality signal. A 300-ohm twin lead cable can be
easily affected by radio noise and the like, resulting in signal deterioration. If
you use a 300-ohm twin lead cable, keep it as far away from the TV as
possible.
You can also connect a variety of optional equipment to your TV (see page 14).
For multiple equipment connections, please refer to the Quick Setup Guide.
