Powering the Equipment
Digital equipment and HD televisions require a good and reliable
source of power and should not be connected to circuits already heavily loaded with other
devices, such as air conditioners, microwave ovens, toasters or the like. It is
recommended that the system be provided with a power bar, or multiple receptacles, having
a connection for each piece of equipment. Check the labels on the rear of your equipment
and add up the total power required, normally indicated in watts. It is recommended that
the total load connected to a circuit should not exceed 1300 watts or (12 amps.) The power
bar, in turn, should be connected to a power receptacle of adequate capacity, having
proper grounding to avoid any possible shock hazards. Avoid the use of multi-outlet
adapters and extension cords. Make sure that the power to the equipment is turned off
before making any new additions or changes, turning it on only when everything is fully
