INSTALLATION
Pre-installation
1.
Press the metal levers on both sides to remove the halfsleeve from the radio.
PREPARE RADIO
FINAL INSTALLATION
CAUTION! Be careful not to damage the car wiring.
3.
4
5
Place the radio in front of the dashboard opening so the
wiring can be brought through the mounting sleeve.
1
Wiring
Complete wiring as illustrated in the wiring diagram on page
3. Once the wiring is complete, reconnect the battery
negative terminal. If there is no ACC available, connect the
ACC lead to the power supply with a switch.
2
NOTE: When replacing a fuse, be sure to use correct
type and amperage to avoid damaging the radio. The
UV8 uses one 10 amp mini-ATM fuse, located in the black
filter box in-line with the main wire harness.
Final Installation
2.
Install the half-sleeve.
a. Install adapter if necessary (optional).
b. Install half-sleeve into adapter or dashboard (use
only the supplied screws). Do not force the sleeve
into the opening or cause it to bend or bow.
c. Locate the series of bend-tabs along the top,
bottom and sides of the mounting sleeve. With the
sleeve fully inserted into the dashboard opening,
bend as many of the tabs outward as necessary so
that the sleeve is firmly secured to the dashboard.
d. Install support strap to make the unit more stable.
INSTALL HALF SLEEVE
After completing the wiring connections, turn the unit on to
confirm operation (ignition switch must be on). If unit does not
operate, recheck all wiring until problem is corrected. Once
proper operation is achieved, turn off the ignition switch and
proceed with final mounting of the chassis.
1.
2.
3.
Connect wiring adapter to existing wiring harness.
Connect antenna lead.
Carefully slide the radio into the half-sleeve, making
sure it is right-side-up, until it is fully seated and the
spring clips lock it into place.
NOTE: For proper operation of the CD/DVD player, the
chassis must be mounted within 20° of horizontal. Make
sure the unit is mounted within this limitation.
4.
Attach one end of the perforated support strap
(supplied) to the screw stud on the rear of the chassis
using the hex nut provided. Fasten the other end of the
perforated strap to a secure part of the dashboard either
above or below the radio using the screw and hex nut
provided. Bend the strap to position it as necessary.
CAUTION! The rear of the radio must be supported with
the strap to prevent damage to the dashboard from the
weight of the radio or improper operation due to
vibration.
5.
Replace any items you removed from the dashboard.

MP3/WMA OPERATION
Instructions for TFT control and Insert/Eject are the same for
DVD and MP3 operation. Please see the DVD/Disc Video
Operation section for information about these topics.
Media and File Requirements
This player allows you to play back MP3 and WMA files
recorded onto CD-R/RWs, DVD+R/RWs, and DVD-R/RWs.
For CD-RW discs, please make sure it is formatted using the
full method and not the quick method to prevent illegal disc
operation.
Up to 1500 songs/files can be burned onto a disc for a MEGA
DVD music mix. Do not exceed this number of songs/files or
disc readability problems may occur.
MP3 Playing Order
MP3 Player User Interface
When selected for play, files and folders (Folder Search, File
Search or Folder Select) are accessed in the order they were
written by the CD writer. As a result, the order in which they
are expected to be played may not match the order in which
they are actually played. You may be able to set the order in
which MP3/WMA files are to be played by writing them onto a
medium such as a CD-R with their file names beginning with
play sequence numbers such as "01" to "99".
The on-screen indicators and touch key areas for MP3
playback are outlined below.
For example, a medium with the following folder/file hierarchy
is subject to Folder Search, File Search or Folder Select, as
shown below.

The file naming formats listed below are compatible with this
unit:

Transfer Bit Rate: 128kbps
Sampling Frequency: 48kHz
When recording MP3 up to the maximum disc capacity,
disable additional writing. For recording on an empty disc up
to maximum disc capacity, use the "Disc at once" setting.
The UV8 player will only recognize three folder levels and
does not display folders containing only other folders. In the
example above, the unit will display folders 3, 4, 6, and 8, but
not 2 and 7 since they do not contain any tracks directly.
Folder 5 is not recognized at all since it is at the fourth level.

Controlling Playback
Playing MP3/WMA Files
After inserting a MP3/WMA disc, files will play in the
sequence of the “Root’ directory.
NOTE: When burning MP3 / WMA files onto a DVD disc,
use the 2X or 4X burning option, if available. This slower
burning speed will help eliminate buffer errors and
increase disc reading reliability. Also, use folders when
burning large numbers of songs / files to a disc for easy
music navigation. Select the "Disc at Once" option and
close your disc.

When the vehicle warms up during cold weather or
under damp conditions, condensation may appear on
the LCD panel. Should this occur, the screen will not
operate properly until the moisture has evaporated.
We suggest you use a cleaning disc in this unit more
frequently than in the unit in your home due to the
environmental conditions of the vehicle.
