TV Guide On Screen makes it easy to locate desired programs and is a crucial feature for digital cable.

Toshiba PixelPure AT (Adaptive Technology) Digital Video Processing - Toshiba's next-generation PixelPure video processing includes new Adaptive Technology. This advanced video processing constantly monitors changes in signal quality, content, and movement to enhance Sharpness, Contrast, and Color reproduction. PixelPure AT once again proves that processing makes the picture, and Toshiba continues to provide the most advanced processing technology for the best possible picture quality on all digital displays.
CableClear DNR+ (by Input) - CableClear utilizes the Digital 3D/YC Comb Filter to compare frames and determine the existence and extent of video noise. It then applies the needed amount of digital video noise reduction, and the appropriate sharpness adjustment to keep the picture clear.
SRS WOW - SRS WOW technology takes the performance of the television's existing speakers to a whole new level, offering superior sound quality with no additional peakers required, SRS WOW consists of three separate sound expanding systems, which work together to extract "buried" highs and lows. The three systems are, SRS 3D, TruBass, and FOCUS. SRS 3D creates a three dimensional sound field from just two speakers, thus giving the listener the feeling of hearing a multi speaker surround sound system. TruBass produces a powerful, yet low, frequency sound by utilizing a process called psychoacoustics. From only two small speakers, TruBass will give the effect of an expensive sub bass woofer that will leave the listener amazed by the quality of the sound. FOCUS was added to direct the energy from the speakers of the television set in a vertical direction up towards the listener's ears. The addition of FOCUS means that there is virtually no loss of sound from the speaker's position on the bottom panel near the floor, which achieves a clear, undistorted range of audio.
Digital Cable Ready (DCR) CableCARD Slot - Toshiba Integrated HDTVs are Digital Cable Ready. They include QAM tuning and a CableCARD slot. Insert a CableCARD supplied by your cable provider and the TV can receive applicable cable channels without the use of a cable box (excluding bi-directional channels/services such as Video On Demand).
6-Item A/V Illuminated Remote with DVD & Audio Control - This ergonomically designed remote puts all the "most needed" functions in reach of your thumb, making operation a snap, and because it's illuminated, it's great for operating in a darkened home theater environment. The remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of functions on other brands of components, including VCRs, personal video recorders, cable boxes, CD players, receivers, laserdisc players, DVD players, and satellite receivers.
HD Window POP with Split Screen and 9 MultiWindows -The picture-out-picture feature splits the screen into a double window that allows you to watch two programs at the same time. You can switch the audio from the main to the POP picture as desired. The double window features each picture according to its input signal aspect ratio, allowing you to view two 4:3, two 16:9 or one 4:3 and one 16:9 picture simultaneously. The MultiWindow system enables the consumer to continue to view the main picture in a large POP box while viewing Favorite Channels, or channel scanning in the other smaller POP boxes..
Tri-Lingual Color Icon On-Screen Display - All TV functions can be easily operated using the remote control to access Toshiba's advanced on-screen display. This full-featured system can be operated in English, French or Spanish. By using the four cursor buttons on the remote control, your favorite features or settings are only a click away.
Off/Sleep Timer - The Sleep Timer allows you to fall asleep watching TV and have the TV turn itself off up to three hours later (in 10-minute intervals).
OmniViewer - Slots for six different types of memory cards, including SD (Secure Digital), MM (Multi-Media), MS (Memory Stick), xD (xD Picture Card), CF (Compact Flash), and SM (Smart Media).
