Important User Guidance Information
Important User Guidance Information
Usage guidelines
All phosphor-based screens (including conventional tube-type
televisions) can be affected by static images appearing for a
prolonged period. Plasma displays are no exception to this
rule. After-image and permanent effects on the screen can be
avoided by taking some basic precautions.
• Whenever possible, avoid showing the same image or lowmotion pictures (e.g. closed-captioned images or video
game images which have static portions).
• Avoid viewing the On Screen Display (OSD) for extended
periods (from a DVD player, VCR, and all other components).
• Do not leave the same picture, freeze-framed or paused
continuously, shown over a long period of time when using
the still picture mode from a TV, VCR, DVD player or any
other component.
• Images which have both very bright areas and very dark
areas side by side should not be displayed for a prolonged
period of time.
• When playing a video game, the “GAME” mode setting within
“AV Selection” is strongly recommended. However, please
do not use this mode for long periods of time.
• After playing a game, displaying a PC image, or any still
image, it is best to view a normal moving picture in the
“WIDE” or “FULL” screen setting for over 3 times longer than
the previous still/moving image was shown.
• After using the Plasma Display System, always switch the
display to Standby.
• Extensive viewing of content with top, bottom, or side masks
may cause uneven wear. After viewing masked content, view
full screen motion video for an equal or greater amount of
time.
Installation guidelines
The Pioneer PureVision PRO-1540HD/PRO-1140HD/PRO940HD Plasma Display Panel incorporates a very thin design.
To ensure safety, please take the proper measures when
mounting or installing the Plasma Display. Prevent the unit
from tipping over during vibration or accidental movement.
This product should be installed by using only parts and
accessories designed by PIONEER. Use of installation or
mounting accessories other than PIONEER-approved stands
or brackets may result in instability and could cause injury. For
custom installation, please consult the dealer where the unit
was purchased. To ensure correct installation, experienced
and qualified experts must install the unit. PIONEER is not
responsible for accident or damage caused by the use of parts
and/or accessories manufactured by other unauthorized
companies.
To avoid malfunction and overheating when installing, make
sure that the vents on the main unit are not blocked. To ensure
proper venting:
• Distance the unit slightly from other equipment, walls, etc.

English
In order to obtain maximum enjoyment from this Pioneer
PureVision PRO-1540HD/PRO-1140HD/PRO-940HD Plasma
Display Panel, please first read this information carefully.
With the Pioneer PureVision PRO-1540HD/PRO-1140HD/PRO940HD, you can be assured of a high quality Plasma Display
Panel with long-life and high reliability. To achieve images of
exceptional quality, this Pioneer Plasma Display Panel
incorporates state-of-the-art design and construction as well
as precise and highly advanced technology.
The Pioneer PureVision PRO-1540HD/PRO-1140HD/PRO940HD incorporates the latest in color filter technology – Direct
Color Filter. This filter technology improves color reproduction
over previous models. It also eliminates the need for a glass
panel to be layered in front of the plasma panel. This feature
which furthers Pioneer’s goal of reducing environmental waste
in consumer electronics, during the manufacturing process
and in the future during the recycling process.
Over the course of its lifetime, the luminosity of the Pioneer
PRO-1540HD/PRO-1140HD/PRO-940HD Plasma Display
System will diminish very slowly, which happens to all
phosphor-based screens (for example, a traditional tube-type
television). To enjoy beautiful and bright images on your
Pioneer Plasma Display Panel for many years to come, please
carefully read and follow the usage guidelines below.
01
NOTE
The following points are typical effects and characteristics of a
phosphor-based matrix display and as such, are not covered by
the manufacturer’s limited warranties:
• Permanent residual images upon the panel’s phosphors.
• Existence of a small number of inactive light cells.
• Panel generated sounds (Fan motor noise, electrical circuit
humming, glass panel buzzing, etc.)

Important User Guidance Information
CAUTION
PIONEER bears no responsibility for any damage arising from
incorrect use of the product malfunctions when in use, other
product related problems, and use of the product except in
cases where the company must be liable.
Plasma Display protection function
When still images (such as photos and computer images) stay
on the screen for an extended period of time, the screen
slightly dims. This function automatically adjusts the
brightness to protect the screen when a still image is detected.
The screen is dimmed for approximately three minutes.
Information of pixel defect
Plasma screens display information using pixels. Pioneer
plasma display panels contain a very large number of pixels. (A
42" panel has over 2.3 million pixels, a 50" panel has over 3.1
million pixels and a 60" panel over 3.1 million pixels). All
Pioneer plasma panels are manufactured using a very high
level of ultra-precision technology and undergo individual
quality control.
In rare cases, one or more pixels may remain switched Off or
On. A pixel that remains Off appears as a tiny black dot on the
screen while an active pixel appears as a dot of a particular
color.
This effect is common to all plasma displays because it is a
consequence of the technology.
If the defective pixels are visible at a normal viewing distance of
between 2.5 and 3.5 meters (8.2 and 11.5 feet) while viewing a
normal broadcast (i.e. not a test card, still image, or single color
display) please contact Pioneer Customer Support Div. (USA) or
Customer Satisfaction Dept. (CANADA). See back cover for
contact information.
If, however, the fixed pixel(s) can only be seen from a distance
of less than 8 feet or during single color displays then the
appearance is considered normal for plasma technology.
Infrared rays
The Plasma Display releases infrared rays because of the panel
characteristics. Surrounding equipment with remote controls
and wireless headphones using infrared signals can
experience interference. Move any affected equipment to a
location away from the plasma panel.
Radio interference
While this product meets required specifications, the panel
emits a small amount of electronic noise. This noise can affect
radio, computer, and VCR reception. Move devices away from
the panel to reduce or eliminate interference.
Plasma Display driving sound
The screen of the Plasma Display is composed of extremely
fine pixels and these pixels emit light according to received
video signals. This principle may cause you to hear a buzz or
electrical hum coming from the Plasma Display.
Do not attach such items as labels and tape to the
product.
• Labels and tape can mar or discolor the cabinet.
8
En
When not using the product for a long time
• If you do not use the product for a long time, the functions of
the product may be adversely affected. Switch ON and run
the product occasionally to maintain quality.
Condensation
• Condensation may take place on the surface or inside of the
panel when the unit is rapidly moved from a cold place to a
warm place or when a heater is turned On in the room. When
condensation occurs, do not switch On the panel until
condensation disappears. Operating the panel when there is
condensation can damage the unit.
Cleaning the surface of the screen and the glossy
surface of the front cabinet
• When cleaning the surface of the screen or the glossy
surface of the front cabinet, gently wipe with the supplied
cleaning cloth or a similar cloth (e.g., cotton, flannel, etc.).
Using a dirty or course material cloth can scratch and
damage the panel’s surfaces.
• If you clean the surface of the screen with a wet cloth, water
droplets may enter into the product, resulting in a
malfunction.
Cleaning the cabinet
• When cleaning other panel surfaces, gently wipe with a
clean soft cloth (e.g., cotton, flannel, etc.). Using a dirty or
course material cloth can scratch and damage the panel’s
surfaces.
• The cabinet of this product is mostly composed of plastic. Do
not use chemicals such as benzene or thinner to clean the
cabinet. Using these chemicals can strip the surface coating
or cause cabinet deterioration.
• Do not expose the product to a volatile gas or fluid such as
pesticide. Do not apply rubber or vinyl products to the
cabinet for long periods of time. The effect of plasticizer on
the cabinet can strip the surface coating or cause
deterioration.
• If you clean the surface of the cabinet with a wet cloth, water
droplets may enter into the product, resulting in a
malfunction.
Handles at the rear of the Plasma Display
• Do not remove the handles from the rear of the Plasma
Display.
• When moving the Plasma Display, ask another person for
help and use the handles attached to the rear of the Plasma
Display. Do not move the Plasma Display by holding only a
single handle. Use the handles as shown on page 20.
• Do not use the handles to hang, suspend, or anchor the
panel.
Fan motor noise
The rotation speed of the cooling fan motor increases when the
ambient temperature of the Plasma Display becomes high.
You may hear the sound of the fan motor at that time.

About the menu window size following video
format switch
If this happens, the menu will return to its normal size after two
to three seconds. This action is normal, and does not indicate
a problem with your Plasma Display Panel.
Image Retention
When a static image is shown on a display for several hours, a
faint imprint of the image, known as image retention, can
remain. This image retention may be temporary or permanent.
Although caused by different things, image retention can
occur on all display technologies, including plasma and LCD.
On today’s plasma displays, permanent image retention is less
of a worry. Most image retention can be improved simply by
watching a motion video sequence.
Image retention, also known as burn-in, can occur in all
phosphor-based display systems (including CRT television
systems–both direct view and projection–as well as plasma
display systems). To avoid image retention or burn-in, do not
show a still image for an extended period. Recommended
guidelines are as follows:
• Do not display static images such as still images, fixed
images from PC or TV game equipment, and/or fixed images
such as time of day indicator or channel logo display for long
periods.
• Do not display content in the 4:3 aspect ratio (black or gray
bars on left and right side of content) or letter-box content
(black bars above and below content) for extended periods of
time, or use either of these viewing modes repeatedly within
a short period of time. This plasma display system is
equipped with multiple wide-screen viewing modes; use one
of these screen modes to fill the entire screen with content.
• Displaying dark images after showing a still image for an
extended time may cause image retention. In most cases,
the image retention can be corrected by displaying bright
images for a similar period of time.
Warning: Displaying a still image on the panel for a long period
of time can cause the image to be burned in to the screen
permanently.
Panel sticking and after-image lag
• Displaying the same images such as still images for a long
time may cause after-image lagging. This may occur in the
following two cases.
1
English
The video program that you watch may be high definition (HD)
or standard definition (SD). This Plasma Display is designed to
scale to either HD or SD signals. If the video program’s
definition type changes while a menu window is displayed on
the screen (for example: HD → SD or SD → HD), the menu size
may temporarily shrink or enlarge until the scaling is complete.
For example, switching between a TV program and an external
digital video recorder (D-VHS) while viewing a menu can cause
the menu window size to fluctuate.
CAUTION
After-image lagging due to remaining electric load
When image patterns with very high peak luminance are
displayed for more than one(1) minute, after-image lagging
may occur due to the remaining electrical load. The afterimages remaining on the screen disappears when moving
images are shown. The time for the after-images to disappear
depends on the luminance of the still image and the length of
time displayed.
2
After-image (lag image) due to burning
Avoid displaying the same image on the Plasma Display
continuously over a long period of time. If the same image is
displayed continuously for several hours, or for shorter periods
but over several days, a permanent after-image may remain on
the screen due to burning of the fluorescent materials. Such
images may become less noticeable if moving images are later
displayed but they do not disappear completely.

This system is equipped with two terminals for inputting TV
broadcasting signals, ANT/CABLE A IN and ANT B IN. The
ANT/CABLE A IN terminal accepts both digital and
conventional TV broadcasting signals while the ANT B IN
terminal accepts only conventional TV broadcasting signals.
When using cable TV to watch digital and/or conventional TV
channels, connect to the ANT/CABLE A IN terminal as shown.
To add an outdoor antenna for clearer pictures, connect an
antenna to the ANT B IN terminal. If your outdoor antenna uses
a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector, plug it into
the antenna terminal at the rear of the Plasma Display.

Preparation
Preparing the remote control unit
Inserting batteries
1 Open the battery cover.
Allowed operation range of the remote control
unit
To use the remote control, point it at the sensor located at the
bottom right corner of the Plasma Display. The distance from
the remote control sensor must be within 7 m (23 feet) and the
angle relative to the sensor must be within 30 degrees left or
right.
2 Load the supplied two AA batteries. Insert the negative
polarity (–) ends first.

• The battery polarities must correspond with the (+) and
(–) indicators in the battery compartment.
3 Close the battery cover.
NOTE
• Although the SR logo also appears in the lower right corner
on the PRO-940HD, the sensor is in the same location for all
three panels.
Cautions regarding the remote control unit
Cautions regarding batteries
• The remote control unit cannot operate the system if the
batteries in the unit are weak. When this happens, replace
the batteries with new ones.
• Use alkaline batteries rather than manganese batteries.
• Do not mix battery brands. Different brands have different
characteristics.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new
batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause
chemical leakage in old batteries.
• Do not leave dead batteries in the remote control. Dead
batteries leak chemicals. If you find any chemical leakage,
wipe thoroughly with a clean cloth.
• The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter
life expectancy due to storage conditions.
• If you will not use the remote control unit for an extended
period of time, remove the batteries.
Battery disposal
When disposing of used batteries, please comply with
governmental regulations or environmental public
institution’s rules that apply in your country/area.
24
En
• Do not expose the remote control to shock, liquid, or high
humidity.
• Do not place the remote control unit under direct sunlight,
the unit may deform.
• The remote control may not work properly if the panel’s
remote sensor window is under direct sunlight or strong
room lighting. If the remote control fails to function in a
bright environment, try changing the signal angle or move
closer to the panel.
• Objects placed between the remote control and the panel
sensor may block the signal.
• As the batteries become weak, the remote control may need
to be used closer to the panel. Replace the batteries with
new ones if necessary.
• The Plasma Display emits very weak infrared rays from its
screen. Other nearby equipment using an infrared remote
control such as a VCR may receive scrambled or incomplete
commands from its remote control. In this situation, move
the equipment away from the Plasma Display.
• Depending on the environment, infrared rays from the
Plasma Display may corrupt signals sent by the remote
control. These IR waves could also require that the remote
control be used closer to the panel. The strength of infrared
rays emitted from the screen differs, depending on the
image being displayed.

With the Parental Control, adults can prevent younger
audiences from watching inappropriate TV programs, VCR
tapes or DVD contents. When an attempt is made to watch a
blocked program (or content), the Plasma Display shows a
message over a black screen. The Parental Control applies to
both conventional and digital TV channels.
There are three rating systems in the United States: the TV
ratings, TV Parental Guidelines, and movie ratings. Movie
ratings are provided by the Motion Picture Association of
America (MPAA) and are used for original movies not edited
for television.
For the rating system in Canada, see page 40.

Plasma Display (rear view)
The panel’s digital audio output terminal (optical) can output
Dolby Digital signals. Using an optical digital cable, connect
an AV receiver to the optical terminal on the rear of the Plasma
Display. This allows high-quality audio, such as during a digital
TV broadcast, to play.
If your AV receiver does not have a digital audio input terminal
(optical), connect MONITOR OUT (AUDIO) on the rear of the
Plasma Display to the audio input terminals on the AV receiver.
This method may cause sound delays between the speakers and
AUDIO. Try muting the speakers on the Plasma Display, however,
you may still experience a delay between audio and video.

• Check the media server setup. A setup procedure may be required for connections if a client is registered
manually. An option “Not Allowed” may have been selected for connections.
• Wait for a while and select “Update to Latest Information” from the Tool Menu. (See page 78)
• An available server is selected but
cannot be navigated
• Check if the server is correctly set up for file sharing, if the target folder has been deleted, or if one or more
folders have been corrupted on the server.
• Check if there are too many files in each folder.
• A server is arbitrarily selected
• This arbitrary selection happens when the server you used before had been set to display the top menu
screen (if you reset it, other servers connected are also reset). When the “Single Server/USB” option is
selected on the “Auto Connection Setup” screen that follows the “Setup” menu, the server is automatically
accessed if only one server is connected. Use the Tool Menu to select the proper server. (See page 78)

Possible Solution
Home Media Gallery/PLAYBACK
• Check the physical connections (hub, 100BASE-TX/10BASE-T, or crossed cable and other cable quality when
cabled directly to a PC). It is strongly recommended to use 100BASE-TX for playback quality and display
speed.
• Check if the PC is operating properly. Reboot the PC after confirming its specifications and setup.
• Check if the file complies to the supported format, bit rate or profile. Also check if the file is damaged.
• When connected by a wireless LAN, check if the bit rate is sufficient.
• Some files that comply with the supported format may not be played back or displayed.
• Cannot play or display
• Check the physical connections (hub, 100BASE-TX/10BASE-T, or crossed cable and other cable quality when
cabled directly to a PC). It is strongly recommended to use 100BASE-TX for playback quality and display
speed.
• Check if the PC is operating properly. Reboot the PC after confirming its specifications and setup.
• Check if the file complies to the supported format, bit rate or profile. Also check if the file is damaged.
• Check if the leasing contract for the server has expired.
• When connected by a wireless LAN, check if the bit rate is sufficient.
• Some files that comply with the supported format may not be played back or displayed.
• It takes time to capture and display a large-sized image. If this is the case, no operation may be performed.
• See the Pioneer website (www.pioneerelectronics.com) for the formats that are supported.
English
• Image or sound is interrupted or
distorted (Block noise appears)
Home Media Gallery/FIRMWARE
• No updates are possible on USB
• Check if the device is Mass Storage Class compliant, if it is connected properly, nothing is damaged (power
unit, mode such as Mass Storage mode and media format, etc.), if it contains the supported files, and if the
speed of the device is sufficient (poor device speed may result in interrupted or delayed display of images
due to a bit-rate problem). When using a digital camera that is not Mass Storage Class compliant, insert the
Flash Memory card into the multi-card reader.
• Confirm that the device is correctly inserted or removed.
• Check that the firmware file has been correctly downloaded. Also check the file size.
• See the Pioneer website (www.pioneerelectronics.com) for details.
Home Media Gallery/USB
• USB devices are not properly recognized • Check if the device is Mass Storage Class compliant, if it is connected properly, nothing is damaged (power
unit, mode such as Mass Storage mode and media format, etc.), if it contains the supported files, and if the
speed of the device is sufficient (poor device speed may result in interrupted or delayed display of images
due to a bit-rate problem). When using a digital camera that is not Mass Storage Class compliant, insert the
Flash Memory card into the multi-card reader.
• Confirm that the device is correctly inserted or removed.
• No USB hub is supported. When you connect a home network, connect directly to the device’s USB port.
• Image or sound is interrupted or
distorted (Block noise appears)
• Verify that the file complies with the supported format, bit rate or profile. Also check the file for damage.
• Some files that comply with the supported format may not play back or display properly.
• Check if the device is Mass Storage Class compliant, if it is connected properly, nothing is damaged (power
unit, mode such as Mass Storage mode and media format, etc.), if it contains the supported files, and if the
speed of the device is sufficient (poor device speed may result in interrupted or delayed display of images
due to a bit-rate problem). When using a digital camera that is not Mass Storage Class compliant, insert the
Flash Memory card into the multi-card reader.

59 Temple Place - Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software-to make sure the software is free for all its users.
This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other program whose authors
commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.)
You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure
that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source
code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you
can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to
copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this
free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not
the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear
that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
GNU General Public License
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such program or work, and a
“work based on the Program” means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language.
(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as “you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act
of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work
based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the
Program does.

Appendix
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy
of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy
and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these
conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or
any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for
such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright
notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute
the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License.
(Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the
Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms,
do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part
of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose
permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is
to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms
of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost
of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with
such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus
the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components
(compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are
not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this
License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so
long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify
or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore,
by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to
do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from
the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any
further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance
by third parties to this License.

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent
issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this
License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program
at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies
directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of
any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he
or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation
excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this
License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such
new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies
to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later
version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may
choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to
the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software
Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
14
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to
make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is
found.
<one line to give the program’s name and an idea of what it does.>

to redistribute it under certain conditions; type ’show c’ for details.
The hypothetical commands ’show w’ and ’show c’ should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course,
the commands you use may be called something other than ’show w’ and ’show c’; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the
program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine
library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do,
use the GNU Lesser General Public License instead of this License.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2,
hence the version number 2.1.]
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software-to make sure the software is free for all its
users. This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some specially designated software packages-typically librariesof the Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully
about whether this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better strategy to use in any particular case, based on the
explanations below.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish); that you receive source
code or can get it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you are
informed that you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we
gave you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. If you link other code with the library, you must
provide complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them with the library after making changes to the library and
recompiling it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is modified
by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know that what they have is not the original version, so that the original
author’s reputation will not be affected by problems that might be introduced by others.
Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot
effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a restrictive license from a patent holder.
Therefore, we insist that any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be consistent with the full freedom of use
specified in this license.
Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser
General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We
use this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those libraries into non-free programs.
When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking
a combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code
with the library.
We call this license the “Lesser” General Public License because it does Less to protect the user’s freedom than the ordinary
General Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less of an advantage over competing non-free programs.
These disadvantages are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many libraries. However, the Lesser license
provides advantages in certain special circumstances.
For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it
becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be allowed to use the library.

A more frequent case is that a free library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this case, there is little to gain by
limiting the free library to free software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body
of free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free programs enables many more people to use the
whole GNU operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating system.
Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the users’ freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that
is linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run that program using a modified version of the Library.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between
a “work based on the library” and a “work that uses the library”. The former contains code derived from the library, whereas the
latter must be combined with the library in order to run.

GNU Lesser General Public License
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder
or other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Lesser General Public License (also called “this
License”). Each licensee is addressed as “you”.
A “library” means a collection of software functions and/or data prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application
programs (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
The “Library”, below, refers to any such software library or work which has been distributed under these terms. A “work based
on the Library” means either the Library or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library
or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter,
translation is included without limitation in the term “modification”.)
”Source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For a library, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used
to control compilation and installation of the library.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act
of running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from such a program is covered only if its contents
constitute a work based on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for writing it). Whether that is true
depends on what the Library does and what the program that uses the Library does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library’s complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided
that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty;
keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and distribute a copy of this License
along with the Library.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure
that, in the event an application does not supply such function or table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever
part of its purpose remains meaningful.
(For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any application-supplied function or table used by this function must be
optional: if the application does not supply it, the square root function must still compute square roots.) These requirements
apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library, and can be
reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is
a work based on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other
licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is
to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Library.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library with the Library (or with a work based on the Library)
on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.
To do this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License,
version 2, instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the ordinary GNU General Public License has
appeared, then you can specify that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in these notices.
Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies
to all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy. This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code
of the Library into a program that is not a library.

4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software
interchange.
If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to
copy the source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to distribute the source code, even though third parties
are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled
or linked with it, is called a “work that uses the Library”. Such a work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
therefore falls outside the scope of this License. However, linking a “work that uses the Library” with the Library creates an
executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it contains portions of the Library), rather than a “work that uses the
library”. The executable is therefore covered by this License. Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
When a “work that uses the Library” uses material from a header file that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may
be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not. Whether this is true is especially significant if the work
can be linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the Library will still fall under Section 6.)
Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section
6. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6, whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or link a “work that uses the Library” with the Library to produce
a work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
modification of the work for the customer’s own use and reverse engineering for debugging such modifications.
You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
covered by this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work during execution displays copyright notices, you
must include the copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference directing the user to the copy of this
License.
Also, you must do one of these things:
a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable
linked with the Library, with the complete machine-readable “work that uses the Library”, as object code and/or source
code, so that the user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified executable containing the modified
Library. (It is understood that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the Library will not necessarily be
able to recompile the application to use the modified definitions.)
b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time
a copy of the library already present on the user’s computer system, rather than copying library functions into the
executable, and (2) will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if the user installs one, as long as the
modified version is interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give the same user the materials specified in
Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more than the cost of performing this distribution.
d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the
above specified materials from the same place.
e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
For an executable, the required form of the “work that uses the Library” must include any data and utility programs needed for
reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception, the materials to be distributed need not include anything
that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.
It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot use both them and the Library together in an
executable that you distribute.
7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined library, provided that the separate distribution of the work
based on the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the Sections above.
b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify
or distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore,
by modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do
so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Library or works based on it.
PDP_PRO1540HD.book Page 115 Wednesday, June 28, 2006 2:29 PM
Appendix
English
10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from
the original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library subject to these terms and conditions. You may not
impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties with this License.
11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent
issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this
License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Library
at all.
For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by all those who receive copies directly
or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Library.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply, and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of
any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he
or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation
excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this
License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library specifies a version number of this License which applies
to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later
version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a license version number, you may choose
any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with
these, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to
the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
14
NO WARRANTY
15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR
ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED
INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY
OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES.

To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most
