General Notes
¶

¶
¶
Depending on your TV and other equipment you wish to
connect, there are various ways you could connect the
player. Use only one of the connections described below.
Please refer to the manuals of your TV, VCR, Stereo System
or other devices as necessary to make the best
connections.
For better sound reproduction, connect the player’s audio
out jacks to the audio in jacks of your amplifier, receiver,
stereo or audio/video equipment. See ‘Connecting to
optional equipment’ on page 12.
Your TV may have only an RF-style jack, usually
labelled Antenna In, 75 ohm ( ) or RF IN.You
will need an RF modulator in order to connect the
DVD Player to your TV. See your electronics
retailer for details on RF modulator availability
and operations.
Caution:
– Make sure the DVD Player is connected
directly to the TV. Set the TV to the correct video
input channel.
– Do not connect the DVD Player’s audio out
jacks to the phono in jack of your audio system.
– Do not connect your DVD Player via your
VCR.The DVD image could be distorted by the
copy protection system.
– Set your TV to the correct Video In channel.
Such channels may be called AUX or AUXILIARY
IN, AUDIO/VIDEO or A/V IN, EXT1/EXT2/
EXTERNAL IN, etc. These channels are often
near channel 00 on the TV. See your TV owner’s
manual for details or keep changing TV channels
until you see the DVD screen saver or Disc
playback on the TV.
¶
¶
If your TV does not accept the Progressive Scan format, the
picture will appear scrambled if you try Progressive Scan on
the DVD Player. (Refer to page 14.)
Make sure the TV’s Sync Mode setting is correct. For
example, on some Philips TVs, set “SYNC MODE” to
“SYNC MODE 2.” An incorrect Sync Mode setting will
cause the picture to shift off-center on the TV screen while
using Progressive Scan. Check your TV owner’s manual for
details on correct Sync Mode settings.

DVD Player to the audio left/right in jacks on the TV (A)
using the supplied audio cables.
Notes:
– Set the VIDEO OUTPUT switch to COMPONENT/

Digital Multi-channel sound
A digital multi-channel connection provides the best sound
quality. For this you need a multi-channel Audio/Video
receiver that supports one or more of the audio formats
supported by your DVD Player (MPEG 2, Dolby DigitalTM
and DTS). Check the receiver manual and the logos on the
front of the receiver.
Warning:
Due to the DTS Licensing agreement, the digital
output will be in DTS digital out when DTS audio
stream is selected.
Notes:
– If the audio format of the digital output does not match the
capabilities of your receiver, the receiver will produce a strong,
distorted sound or no sound at all.
– Six Channel Digital Surround Sound via digital connection
can only be obtained if your receiver is equipped with a Digital
Multi-channel decoder.
– To see the audio format of the current DVD in the OnScreen Display, press the AUDIO button.
– There are two sets of AUDIO OUT jacks on the DVD Player.
The AUDIO OUT2 jacks could be used if you want to connect
the DVD Player to a second piece of equipment, such as
another stereo. Use audio cable to connect the AUDIO OUT2
Right and Left jacks to the Right and Left AUDIO IN jacks on
the other equipment.
Remember, you only need one audio and one video connection
between the TV and the DVD Player, so you do not have to use
all the jacks on the DVD Player.

– Progressive Scan (Y Pr/Cr Pb/Cb connection only)
Progressive Scan Video provides the highest quality pictures
with less flickering.
If you are using the Component Video jacks, but are
connecting the DVD Player to a standard (analog)
television, set Progressive Scan to Off.
If you are using the Component Video jacks for connection
to a TV or monitor that is compatible with a progressive
scan signal, set Progressive Scan to On.
Notes:
– Progressive Scan only works when the VIDEO OUTPUT
switch on the rear panel is set to COMPONENT/
PROGRESSIVE SCAN.
– Progressive Scan only appears in the menu if the VIDEO
OUTPUT switch is set to COMPONENT/PROGRESSIVE SCAN.
– Make sure the TV’s Sync Mode setting is correct. For
example, on some Philips TVs, set “SYNC MODE” to “SYNC
MODE 2.” An incorrect Sync Mode setting will cause the
picture to shift off-center on the TV screen while using
Progressive Scan. Check your TV owner’s manual for details on
correct Sync Mode settings.
Caution:
– Once the setting for progressive scan output is entered, an
image will only be visible on a progressive scan compatible TV or
monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in error, you must reset
the unit. Press STOP to stop any disc that is playing. Next, press
STOP again and hold it for five seconds before releasing it.The
video output will be restored to the standard setting, and a
picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or
monitor.

Parental control (DVD only)
– Dynamic Range Control (DRC)
With the DVD format, you can hear a program’s
soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation
possible, thanks to digital audio technology. However, you
may wish to compress the dynamic range of the audio
output (the difference between the loudest sounds and the
quietest ones). Then, you may listen to a movie at a lower
volume without losing dialog intelligibility. Set DRC to On
for this effect.
Movies on DVDs may contain scenes not suitable for
children. Therefore, discs may contain ‘Parental Control’
information that applies to the complete disc or to
certain scenes on the disc. These scenes are rated from 1
to 8. Alternative, more suitable scenes are available on
some discs. Ratings are country dependent. The ‘Parental
Control’ feature allows you to prevent discs from being
played by your children or to have certain discs played with
alternative scenes.

Parental Control Disclaimer
This DVD Player features the Parental Control system,
which is intended to be active when playing DVD discs with
certain software coding. This is according to technical
standards adopted by the set maker and disc content
industries.
Please note that Parental Control will not control a DVD
that does not have the appropriate software coding. At the
time of release of this DVD Player, certain aspects of the
technical standards had not been settled between set
makers and the disc content industries.
For these reasons, Philips cannot guarantee the functioning
of Parental Control and denies any liability associated with
unintended watching of discs.
If in doubt, please make sure the disc plays according to
your Parental Control settings before you allow children
access to the DVD Player.

About MP3
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using MPEG1, the
audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call files that have the
“.mp3” file extension “MP3 files.”
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file extension
other than “.mp3.”
Noises may be heard if you play a non-MP3 file that has the
“.mp3” extension.
