precautions for viewing terrestrial broadcasting・ To enable pleasant TV viewing, terrestrial digital broadcasting signals must be received at or above a certain strength via a terrestrial digital antenna. 
・ Even if the antenna and this product are set up properly, and correctly connected, reception of terrestrial digital broadcasts will be impossible in countries without terrestrial digital broadcasting. Even in countries where terrestrial digital TV broadcasting has been started, it may be impossible to view digital TV if the current location (anchor point) is distant from the broadcasting station, or if it is impossible to obtain signal strength sufficient 
   for TV viewing at unfavorable locations such as those where noise has an effect on TV signals. 
・In terms of video formats, the system supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and H.264. It does not support AVS (a standard unique to China).
・ Pay broadcasts (scrambled broadcasts) cannot be viewed.
・ It does not support analog terrestrial broadcasting. Use your analog worldwide TV to watch analog TV programs.
・ The upper illustration is for reference. Please check Wikipedia about the status of digital television transition. 2.Intuitive, simple operation 
Operation relating to TV viewing, such as region selection (broadcasting system selection) and 
channel scan, can be done simply and easily.Broadcasting standards are established by regions (countries). 
With this product, it is possible to perform channel scan with either of the following:
  1. Scanning by designating a region (country) or broadcasting standard
  2. Sequential scanning of all broadcasting standards (All Scan) 3.Can be connected with analog worldwide TV using through-out output 
The main unit is equipped with an antenna through-out output terminal for connecting an analog worldwide TV, to enable viewing of analog TV in countries continuing to broadcast terrestrial analog TV.
In regions (countries) where there is
(a) only analog terrestrial broadcasting ----------------------  Use an analog worldwide TV.

(b) both analog and digital terrestrial broadcasting ------- Use an analog worldwide TV or Smart Digital Tuner.
(c) only digital terrestrial broadcasting ----------------------- Use Smart Digital Tunar.

Features only in Japan (ISDB-T)

1.Equipped with 1-seg for a much broader viewing area (Japan only) 
Even if the ship enters an area where viewing is impossible with ordinary TV due to the weakness of the received signals, the system will automatically switch to 1-seg to enlarge the viewing area.
2.Equipped with double tuner for relay/affiliated station search (Japan only) Unlike TV in the home, the broadcasting stations which can be viewed constantly change on a moving ship. With previous terrestrial digital tuners, it was necessary to manually perform region setting and broadcasting station scanning to adjust to these invisible changes. With this product, the system automatically switches between two tuners while they constantly search for the optimal broadcast, and thus there is no need for troublesome operation.
