Player Zones
For the purpose of distribution of DVD Discs, the world has been separated into 6
zones. The zone your unit is intended for is indicated on the Zone Label. This should
be the same as the label on discs available in your region. If you have any difficulties in
playing a disc, make sure that the disc is for the same zone as your player.
Region 1
Anti-copy Disc Protection
Some DVD discs have anti-copying devices.
With these discs the playback on a Television will give the highest quality picture, however you will not be able to
record this signal on a VCR.
Installation
Install your unit on a stable flat surface. There must be sufficient room in front of the unit for the drawer to be
opened and the unit should be positioned so that it can see the remote control.
Do not expose your unit to extremes of temperature or humidity. Avoid standing it on a hot surface such as on
top of other hot running equipment and ensure that there is adequate ventilation to the unit.
* Caution : Do not install this equipment in confined space such as a book case or similar unit!
DVD Discs
There are several types of DVD Disc.
Single sided discs.
They play for approximately
2 HOURS
Single sided two layer discs.
They play for approximately
4 HOURS
Double sided discs.
They play for approximately
4 HOURS
Double sided with 2 layers on both sides.
They play for approximately
8 HOURS
DVD discs have Titles and Chapters. There can be several Titles on one disc and each Title can contain several
Chapters. Titles and Chapters are numbered, e.g. Title 1, Title 2 etc. & Chapter 1,2,3 etc.
Usually Title one will show the disc publisher and studio
logos. The next Title will be the film. Other Titles
contain trailers for other films, production notes, or
alternative endings for the film. There are many
possibilities with Digital Versatile Disc. Chapters within
the main Title allow you to search quickly for a specific
point on the disc. Many discs have a Chapter Menu
sometimes called Scene Index or Scene Menu that
displays the first shot from each Chapter, which allows
you to select a shot and play the disc from that point
onwards. DVD discs can be PAL or NTSC. This player
can play both types (if the player zone is correct).
DVD discs allow up to 8 Languages and 32 subtitles on a single disc. You can select and change the language
and subtitle to suit yourself and play the whole disc or just part of it and view it from different angles.
Cleaning DVD Discs
Picture freezing & sound skipping or repeating can occur if the disc inside the player is dirty.
• When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not wipe in a circular motion. Circular scratches can cause picture distortion or render the disc
unplayable.
CAUTION - Do not use solvents, commercially viable cleaners, or
antistatic spray intended for analog discs.

It offers users the robust surround processing of the original
Pro Logic.
It’s usually used when Pro Logic II is connected to a virtual
process for speaker use.
It’s recommended as the standard mode for autosound music
systems (without video), and is optional for A/V systems.
It can be called simply “Pro Logic II”. It has stereo surround
channels and no surround filter, unlike Pro Logic which has a
mono surround channels and a 7KHz surround filter. Movie
mode is the standard required for all A/V systems.
It’s the same as the Music mode except that the directional
enhancement logic is turned off. It may be used to enhance
mono signals by making them seem “larger”.

A simple control that alters the ratio of L+R to L-R for the twochannel input signals. It allows the user to gradually adjust the
soundfield either towards the front or towards the rear. If a
recording is too spacious or strong from the surrounds, it can be
adjusted “forward” to get a better balance. Likewise, if a stereo
recording is somewhat too “mono” or “narrow” sounding, it can be
adjusted toward the rear to get a more enveloping, immersing
result.

Extends the front stereo image to include the surround
speakers for an exciting “wraparound” effect with side-wall

Center Width Control
With Pro Logic decoding, dominant center signals can come
only from the center speaker. If no center speaker is present,
the decoder splits the center signals equally to the left and
right speakers to create a “phantom” center image. The
Center Width control allows variable adjustment of the
center image so it may be heard only from the center
speaker; only from the left/right speakers as a phantom
image; or from all three front speakers to varying degrees.
It’s recommended to set the control to use the position 3
values for the Music mode. This will also help distinguish the
Music mode from the Movie mode, which automatically
presets the Center-width control to position 0.

Dolby Digital Surround
The Dolby Digital Surround system requires connections of all 5 speakers (front left, center, front right,
surround right, surround left) for the correct surround sound reproduction. This 5.1 channel digital surround
format enables five individual full-range (20Hz-20KHz) channels plus an LFE (Low Frequency Effects) channel
for the low-range (20Hz-120Hz) effects. It creates a realistic sound similar to the theaters and cinemas. A
large proportion of DVD discs use this system for sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II Surround
The Dolby Pro Logic II Surround system is the next generation in Dolby Surround decoding. It creates five fullbandwidth output channels from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced, high-purity matrix
surround decoder that extracts the spatial properties of the original recording without adding any new sounds
or tonal colorations.
3 Stereo
3 Stereo produces three channels (front left, center, front right) of sound from a two channels analog signal. It
is not a surround format so it does not require surround speakers.
Soundfield Effects
The digital Soundfield Effects recreates the effects of sounds reflected from walls or ceilings to obtain the
sound presence of real environments.
Stadium: recreates a large stadium using very long reverberation times.
Stage: recreates a stage environment, emphasizing sound from the front speakers.
Hall: recreates a hall using lots of reflections. Suitable for orchestral music such as classical and opera.
Disco: recreates the disco or club music effect. It is suitable for all types of music that are played in
disco.
Live: suitable for all types of music.

PLAYABLE DISC
While advances have been made to ensure that your disc player is compatible with the largest number of discs
possible, however it cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to play discs which might not be compliant with
audio CD standards. In the case of writable and rewritable discs, compatibility with this player depends on the
CD/DVD writer, the right software and the disc used.
DVD-Video
Digital video discs - 5” and 3”, single or double sided,
single or dual layer. DVDs are high-density optical
discs on which high quality picture and audio are
recorded by means of digital signals.
DVD-R, DVD-RW
Most DVD-R and DVD+R (one recording only), DVDRW and DVD+RW discs (rewritable). Depending on
the DVD writer and discs used. Recordings using
DVD-R and DVD-RW discs must be made in Video
DVD mode. Recordings using DVD+RW discs must
be made in accordance with the specifications for
DVD+RW discs with a 4.7 GB capacity.
Audio CD (5” and 3”).
CD-R & CD-RW
Most CD-R (one recording only) and CD-RW discs
(rewritable). This player can play most CD-R discs.
CD-Rs written during a multi-session recording can
also be played, provided that the session has ended
before the disc is played (depending on the write
software). However, depending on the condition of the
CD writer, computer and the disc used, you may find
that not all discs will play successfully. When playing a
CD-R disc, it is completely normal for the unit to take
up to 20 seconds to recognize the disc before starting to play. If the disc is not recognized after a period
of 20 seconds, remove the disc, and then insert it
again.
• Irrespective of the actual recording capacity of
the CD-R, do not use its full capacity.
• CD-Rs should be preferably used instead of CDRWs (rewritable CDs) as, in certain cases, CDRW playback may be faulty.
• Use reliable, good-quality CD write software.
• Close all other applications on the computer to
ensure reliable CD-R disc recording.
MP3 Files
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio files in MP3
format. As for CD-R MP3 discs, please follow all the
recommendations for CD-R above, along with the
comments below:
• Your MP3 files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET
format. ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 files are
compatible with Microsoft’s DOS and Windows,
as well as with Apple Mac. These two formats are
the most widely used.
• MP3 filenames should not exceed 12 characters,
and should end with the “.MP3” extension.
General name format: “Title.MP3”. When
composing your title ensure that you use 8
characters or less, have no spaces in the name,
and avoid the use of special characters including (
. , / , \ , = ,+).
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128kB/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording
MP3 files. Sound quality with MP3 files basically
depends on the rate of compression /
decompression you choose. Obtaining audio CD
quality sound requires an analog/digital sampling
rate, that is converted to MP3 format, of at least
128kB/sec and up to 160kB/sec. Choosing higher
rates, such as 192 kB/sec or more, will rarely
produce better sound quality. Conversely, files
with sampling rates below 128kB/sec will not play
properly.
• Do not try recording copyright-protected MP3
files. “Secured” files are encrypted and codeprotected to prevent illegal copying. You must not
copy such files.
Important:
The above recommendations cannot be taken as a
guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality. You
should note that certain technologies and methods
for MP3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent optimal
playback of these files on your DVD player (i.e.
degraded sound quality and even, in some cases,
inability of the player to read the file).
26
PLAYABLE DISC
WMA Files
CD-R with WMA files. Windows Media Audio (WMA)
is another compressed audio file format that is
similar to MP3. WMA files can also be grouped in
folders or albums as MP3 files.
• WMA filenames should not exceed 12 characters,
and should end with the “.WMA” extension.
General name format: “Title.WMA”. When
composing your title ensure that you use 8
characters or less, have no spaces in the name,
and avoid the use of special characters including
( . , / , \ , = ,+).
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128kB/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording
WMA files. Sound quality with WMA files basically
depends on the rate of compression /
decompression you choose. Obtaining audio CD
quality sound requires an analog/digital sampling
rate, that is conversion to WMA format, of at
least 32kB/sec and up to 160kB/sec. Choosing
higher rates, such as 192 kB/sec or more, only
rarely produces even better sound quality.
Conversely, files with sampling rates below 32kB/
sec will not play properly.
• Supported Formats: WMA 7.0, WMA 8.0, WMA
9.0.
MPEG4 Files
For MPEG 4 Video file format, only stereo output will
be available.
As for CD-R MPEG4 discs, please follow all the
recommendations for CD-R above, along with the
comments below:
• Your MPEG4 files should be ISO format without
QPEL.
• MPEG4 filenames should not exceed 12 characters,
and should end with the “.avi” extension. General
name format: “Title.avi”. When composing your title
ensure that you use 8 characters or less, have no
spaces in the name, and avoid the use of special
characters including ( . , / , \ , = ,+).
Important:
The above recommendations cannot be taken as a
guarantee that the DVD player will play MPEG4
recordings, or as an assurance of video quality. You
should note that certain technologies and methods for
MPEG4 file recording on CD-Rs prevent optimal
playback of these files on your DVD player (i.e. In some
cases, inability of the player to read the file, or
playback the file normally).
Depending on the conditions of the recording
equipment or the CD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW or DVD-R/
RW disc itself, some discs can not be played on the
unit.
JPEG Files
CD-R and CD-RW with JPEG files. JPEG is a
compressed image file format. Your player can play
JPEG files with a resolution of up to five million (5
mega) pixels. However, there is no perceptible
improvement in the quality of pictures displayed on
your TV screen beyond 400,000 pixels.
Certain JPEG files, including progressive JPEG files,
cannot be read by this player.
Note: Display time will vary according to the file size
and number of pixels of JPEG files.
