Video connections
You can connect the unit’s video output to a video monitor, or the video input on an AV amplifier (which in turn is connected to a video monitor). Connecting to an AV amplifier enables you to control audio and video using the AV amplifier.
You can set up the AV amplifier using this unit’s OSD (on-screen display).
This unit features several types of video output jacks.
Determine the one compatible with the inputs on your
video monitor. Use the appropriate cable to connect the
unit to an AV amplifier, and the AV amplifier to the monitor.
Note
• Do not connect this unit to a video monitor through a
video cassette recorder. If you do so, the picture may not
play back properly due to the copyright protection technology incorporated in this unit.
1 S VIDEO outputs (1, 2)
The S VIDEO jacks output discrete C and Y signals to
reproduce higher-quality images than normal composite video. Connect one end of an S Video cable (not
included) to either S VIDEO jack. Connect the other
end to an S Video input on an AV amplifier or video
monitor.

2 VIDEO outputs (1, 2)
The VIDEO jacks output normal composite video signals. Use the yellow plugs on an audio/video cable to
connect either VIDEO jack to a video input on an AV
amplifier or video monitor.
The same signal is output from VIDEO 1 and VIDEO
2, enabling connection to two devices (e.g., a monitor
and an AV amplifier) simultaneously.

3 COMPONENT outputs
(U.S.A. and Australian models only)
These jacks output three discrete CCY signals (“component video”) to reproduce a higher-quality image
than S Video.
(U.S.A. model only)
This unit features a DCDi circuit (with the latest contour correction technology) and progressive output,
which produces very smooth and natural high-quality
pictures even on a big screen. Use a component video
cable (not included) to connect the COMPONENT
output jacks to the component video input connectors
on an AV amplifier or video monitor.
4 AV connector
(U.K. and Europe models only)

GLOSSARY
Bitstream
Frame stills and field stills
In this manual, “bitstream” refers to the digital form of
multiple channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel audio)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
A frame still is an image composed of two alternating
fields. Edges may be slightly blurry, but the overall image
quality is high.
A field still is an image composed from only one of the
two fields. The picture is not blurry, but contains only half
of the visual information of a frame still.
CINEMA DSP
Decoder
A device or program that translates (decodes) encoded
data on DVDs into an appropriate format.
Dolby Digital
A method for coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. In addition to stereo (2-channel) audio,
Dolby Digital signals can also be 5.1-channel audio. A
large amount of audio information can be recorded on one
disc using this method.
Dolby Pro Logic
A surround system in which a 4-channel audio track is
recorded as two channels, then restored to four channels
for playback. The surround channel is monaural and can
reproduce up to 7 kHz.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique for decoding
data that was encoded by Dolby Surround software. This
new technology enables discrete 5-channel playback with
2 front channels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels
(instead of only 1 rear channel as with conventional Pro
Logic technology). A music mode is also available for 2channel sources in addition to the movie mode.
Frames
DVD-A
Interlaced and progressive output
NTSC, the video signal standard, uses 525 interlaced (i)
scan lines. Progressive scanning uses twice that number of
scan lines and is called 525p. The 525i video signals output from the unit’s COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks (Y,
PB, PR) allow you to enjoy higher quality pictures than if
the signals were output from the video output jack or S
VIDEO OUT jack. The COMPONENT VIDEO OUT
jacks are also able to handle 525p (progressive) video signals, which are of even greater resolution.
LFE 0.1 channel
This channel reproduces low bass signals in the frequency
range of 20 Hz to 120 Hz. This channel is counted as 0.1
because it generates only a low frequency range relative to
the full-range reproduced by the other five channels in a
Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 system.
PCM
Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) converts analog waves into
digital signals. It is commonly used in the creation of
music CDs. DVDs allow greater volume, and hence use
linear PCM, which has a higher sampling rate. Compressed PCM signals are called packed PCM (PPCM).
Matrix 6.1
The unit incorporates a Matrix 6.1 decoder for Dolby Digital and DTS multi-channel software that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding a rear center channel to an
existing 5.1-channel format. (The rear center channel is
created from rear left and right channels, and output from
a virtual rear center speaker.) With this additional channel,
you can experience more dynamic and realistic moving
sounds, especially in scenes with “fly-over” and “flyaround” effects.
English
Moving pictures are composed of a sequence of still
images called frames. About 30 frames are shown each
second (30fps). Each frame is composed of two interlaced
fields. A television displays these fields in rapid succession to create frames.
Group
A DVD audio disc is divided into large sections called
“groups” and smaller sections called “tracks.” The numbers allocated to these sections are called “group numbers” and “track numbers.”
APPENDIX
The Dolby Surround and DTS systems were originally
designed for use in movie theaters, and theaters remain the
premiere listening experience—especially movie theaters
with complex speaker and sound systems, optimized for
acoustics and special effects.
There is a great variety in the sound quality of listening
environments in homes, due to variables such as room
size, wall material, number of speakers, etc.
A result of extensive research, YAMAHA CINEMA DSP
utilizes YAMAHA original sound field technology to combine three systems—Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and
DTS—to create a theater-quality visual and audio experience in your home.

NOTES ON HANDLING DISCS
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
SILENT CINEMA
In general, DVD-Video discs are produced with the intention of being viewed on a widescreen television with an
aspect ratio of 16:9. This means you can view most material at the intended aspect ratio on a widescreen television.
Material with this ratio will not fit onto a standard television with an aspect ratio of 4:3. Two picture styles,
“Pan&Scan” and “Letterbox,” resolve this issue.
Pan&Scan: The sides of the image are trimmed so the
picture can fill the screen.
Letterbox: Black bands appear across the top and bottom of the image. The picture appears at an
aspect ratio of 16:9.
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect
DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound
field so that you can enjoy accurate representations of all
sound fields.
Playback control (PBC)
The term “playback control” on a Video CD or its packaging indicates that certain scenes or information may
viewed interactively or navigated by menu. This unit can
play Video CDs that feature playback control.
Sampling frequency and quantized bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of
times the signal is sampled per second constitutes the sampling frequency. The degree of fineness with which a
sound level is converted into a numeric value is determined by the number of quantized bits.
Title/Chapter
DVD-V
DVD-Video discs are divided into large sections (titles),
and smaller sections (chapters). The numbers allocated to
these sections are referred to as title numbers and chapter
numbers.
Track
SACD
DVD-A
VCD
CD
A track is the smallest division on DVD-Audio, CD, and
Video CD discs. It usually equates to a single song.
Virtual CINEMA DSP
YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field surround
effects without center or rear speakers—by using “virtual
rear speakers.”
NOTES ON HANDLING DISCS
• Hold discs by touching only the edges or center hole.
• Do not leave a disc in the tray (if you do not plan to
play it).
• Do not write anything on discs using a pencil or other
sharp writing tool.
• Do not use disc surface protectors (e.g., damage-resistant film).
• Store discs in an appropriate case.
• Do not use any disc that has had its surface printed by a
commercially-available label printer.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperature or high humidity for a long period of time because
these environments might warp or otherwise damage
the disc.
36
• Playback of discs is generally not affected by small
particles of dust or fingerprints on their playing surface. Even so, discs should be kept clean. Wipe discs
using a clean, dry cloth. Do not wipe discs in a circular
motion; wipe straight outward from the center.
• Do not clean the disc’s surface using any type of disc
cleaner, record spray, anti-static spray or liquid, or any
other chemical-based liquid, because such substances
might irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
