Connection
Please ensure that all electrical components are switched off before connecting. Your Digital Movie System has three optional inputs. In principle
it is enough to connect one of these inputs to your TV and all further devices to your TV. To achieve the best possible sound we recommend that
you connect your satellite receiver, Blu-Ray or DVD player directly to the DM System. The following options are possible, depending on the type
and fittings of the source used:
TV – Digital input (optical)
Modern TV devices have an optical audio output (Toslink). Connect this with the input
marked “TV” on the DM System. This connection guarantees optimal signal transmission and best sound quality.
DVD – Digital input (coaxial)
To transmit the DVD sound signal connect the digital coaxial output of your Blu-Ray or
DVD player with the jack marked “DVD” on the DM System. To transmit the picture
signal your DVD player must also be connected to the TV. The input marked “DVD”
on the DM System can be selected if your TV does not have an optical output.
AUX – Analogue input
If your TV only has an audio output marked “Pre-Out” then connect it using the
shielded stereo RCA cable plugged into the analogue input on the DM System marked
“AUX”. Otherwise this input can be used to connect video recorders or game consoles.
SUB – Analogue output
Use this output when you want to connect an external active subwoofer. SUB OUT
is not active in the basic setting and needs to be activated using the remote control.

IR learning function
The DM 50 can learn the infrared code of your TV remote control and therefore allows you to control the functions of the Soundbar and
TV device via your remote control. You can allocate the instructions for the Soundbar to any key of the TV remote control. When choosing
a key make sure that the instructions for the Soundbar do not conflict with the TV device. We recommend that you deactivate the internal
loudspeaker of the TV device once the Soundbar is connected.

English
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
DM System hums.
1. S ignal lines from source device to DM System
too long.
1. Use shorter signal line.
2. Signal
line used is not fault-protected or the
protection has been damaged (defective).
2. Change signal line for a fault-protected line.
3. Ground loop (ripple pickup) generated.
3. A ground loop can be generated when two or more
devices connected via a signal line (cinch) are plugged
into separate sockets (e. g. amplifier and computer). Plug
all devices connected to the DM System into a multiple
socket output using safety plugs.
4. A
nother piece of equipment on the same
circuit has no interference suppression
(e.g. fridge).
4. S witch off possible sources of interference to test; unplug
the device concerned to see if the humming noise disappears or connect the source of interference to a different
circuit (L1, L2 ­or L3). (Where necessary take advice from
your electrician.) Insert a special “ferrite common mode
filter” (available from specialist retailers) between the
amplifier and the DM System to eliminate the humming.
Turn the power plug round to reduce the so-called ripple
voltage (particularly important if the source device is not
earthed).
