The ATSC tuner allows reception of high-definition television broadcasts free of charge. The QAM tuner allows cable subscribers to receive some or all of their channels without the need to rent a proprietary cable box from their cable company. The 75 ohm "F" type input accepts signal from any indoor or outdoor television antenna, plus a 75 ohm "F" type output is provided to accommodate older sets that have no external A/V inputs. This output is selectable between NTSC CH3 or CH4.

Audio connectivity is by HDMI, optical (Dolby Digital) or RCA (red/white).
