Warranty Coverage
PR
Runco warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship during the warranty period provided below.
If, in Runco’s sole determination, a product proves to be defective in material or workmanship during the warranty period,
Runco will repair the product, replace the product with a substantially similar new or like-new product, or refund a prorata
share of the purchase price (calculated based on the remainder of the warranty period and the then-current MSRP2 of a similar
product), if repair or replacement of the product is determined by Runco to not be feasible. Runco has sole discretion in
determining whether a same or like model is offered, and what constitutes a “substantially similar model.”
Length of Warranty
Runco products are warranted for two (2) years from the date of shipment from Runco. Lamps are warranted six (6) months
from the date of shipment or 1000 hours of use, whichever comes first. All other accessories, which include but are not limited
to, cables, remotes, carrying cases, lens cap and other peripherals sold with the Runco product, are warranted for ninety (90)
days from the date of the original shipment of the accessory.
Eligibility
This RuncoCare Standard Limited Warranty is valid only for the first customer who purchases the covered product from an
authorized Runco dealer or distributor. This warranty is not transferable. You may be required to provide proof of purchase in
order to receive warranty services.
1. Runco may update this list of products excluded from this warranty from time to time at Runco’s sole discretion, but updates to
the list of covered products will not apply on a retroactive basis.

3. Runco Technical Support staff will attempt to correct any minor issues that may be causing the problem. If Runco is
unable to resolve the problem through troubleshooting, a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number will be issued for the
exchange of the defective product if it is determined that the claim was made within the coverage period of the Standard
Limited Warranty.
4. If it is determined that the Standard Limited Warranty applies to the claim, the customer will need to return the defective
product to the Runco repair depot location specified by the Runco technical support representative. The customer will
need to properly package the defective product, consisting of the product only, and not include any accessories (e.g.,
cables, remotes, carrying cases, lens, lens cap and other peripherals) and return it to the Runco repair depot specified by
the technical support representative. It is the customer’s responsibility to properly package the hardware, include all
appropriate materials, and return it to the location specified by the Runco technical support department. The customer will
need to address and resolve any shipping damage claims directly with the shipping company.
5. The customer is responsible for providing a suitable box to ship the defective product to an authorized Runco repair depot.
Boxes may be purchased from a Runco technical support representative.
6. The customer is responsible for paying freight charges to ship the defective product to an authorized Runco repair depot.
7. For in-warranty repairs, Runco will pay freight charges to return the repaired/replacement product (which shall not include
accessories--e.g., cables, remotes, carrying cases, lens cap and other peripherals sold with the Runco product) to the
customer from the Runco repair depot.
PR
8. Once an RMA has been created, the customer may contact serviceorders@runco.com for followup questions or
confirmation status of the claim process.

7. Bright or dark sub pixels that are characteristic of LCD technology and considered by Runco to be acceptable and within
Runco’s manufacturing specifications. (See “Sub Pixel Policy,” below.)
8. Second day shipment delivery time and availability may vary based on origin and destination and Runco is unable to deliver
to PO Box and FPO Box addresses
Sub Pixel Policy
PR
It is not uncommon for one or more sub pixels to become bright or dark during or after the manufacturing process. A bright
sub pixel is one that remains in the on position, and a dark sub pixel is one that appears black or off. The sub pixels are usually
hard to see and will not detract from the display quality or usability at normal viewing distance. The following are Runco’s
criteria for identifying bright or dark sub pixels that would be considered unacceptable: a) the number of bright or dark sub
pixels; b) the location of the bright or dark sub pixels; c) the color of the bright sub pixels; and d) the Runco model size. If sub
pixels have been identified as unacceptable by Runco the LCD will be deemed faulty and will be replaced if reported within the
warranty period. If there are issues with bright or dark sub pixels, gather the information listed above and call or email
support@runco.com.
Other Terms and Conditions
1. Runco will not accept returned Product unless an RMA number has been issued by Runco.
2. If an Advance Exchange return occurs, it is the customer’s responsibility to properly package the defective product and
ship it to the address provided by the Runco technical support representative with the RMA number prominently
displayed. If the defective product is not properly packaged and is damaged in transit during its return to Runco, you may
be invoiced for either the repair costs, if repairable, or the MSRP of a replacement product and shipping costs incurred by
Runco.
3. The repaired or replaced product will assume the remainder of your original product’s RuncoCare Service Plan term or 90
days from the date the repaired unit is shipped, whichever is longer.
4. If a replacement product is sent, the customer agrees to retain the replacement for the product you purchased and your
defective product becomes the property of Runco.
Extended Service Options
Runco offers extended and expanded service plans. For information on additional product protection, please email
serviceorders@runco.com or call (toll free) (800) 23RUNCO (800-237-8626).

Vistage™ Series Flat-Panel Display Installation/Operation Manual
Introduction
Runco introduces its Vistage™ Series of ultra-thin flat panel displays, combining elegance,
beauty and unparalleled customization with the stellar video performance that is
synonymous with the Runco brand. These flat panel displays offer a stylish solution that
can be personalized to reflect the style and passion of its homeowner.
Unlike most other thin panel televisions, the entire front of the Vistage display is comprised
of solid glass, creating a better viewing performance when the display is on and a more
uniform finish when it is off. Beyond its sheer beauty, the glass front improves optical
performance of the flat panel, because there are no surface uniformity issues common to
the acrylic or plastic surfaces used on most televisions.

The Vistage Series utilizes the latest in display technology, including Runco’s Emissive Cell
Structure™, which delivers exceptional brightness and viewing angles. Using a proprietary
algorithm, each sub-pixel is individually modulated to turn on or off based on the content
being played, creating exceptional contrast and black levels previously unachieved in the
industry. The Emissive Cell Structure performs best in light-controlled environments and
offers amazing black levels and dark-content performance. Because the light sources turn
off for black content and because so much content is black, the Runco Vistage Series
also offers incredible operating efficiency.
PR
The Vistage Series includes Runco’s new DHD-LS™, an ultra-slim (measuring just more
than 1 inch tall) video processor and scaler. The Runco DHD-LS allows connection to a
myriad of multiple sources, and its elegant design includes an all-glass front that
complements the sleek design of the Vistage Series. The DHD-LS includes Runco’s latest
ViVix™ processing for exceptional scaling and analog-to-digital signal conversion. It also
allows single-wire connectivity to the display and enables individual calibration and
control.

Installation
Proper installation of your V-50HD/V-63HD will ensure the highest possible picture quality.
Whether you are installing the V-50HD/V-63HD temporarily or permanently, you should
take the following into account to ensure that it performs optimally.
To install the V-50HD/V-63HD, you will need either an optional table stand or
wall-mounting kit.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Runco recommends that this be done by a custom installation specialist.
Mounting the
V-50HD/V-63HD on a Wall
or Table Stand
Y
If you are wall-mounting a V-50HD/V-63HD, ensure that the wall-mount bracket is installed
according to the instructions included with it. The wall must be capable of supporting a
redundant weight factor three (3) times the weight of the display, or be reinforced.
3.3
Installation
Considerations
1. Use only a Runco-approved wall-mount kit or table stand that is
specifically designed for your display. Refer to Parts List on
page 4 for ordering information.
Note
2. If you are wall-mounting the V-50HD/V-63HD, you must attach
the video and power cables to the display before mounting it.
Due to its extraordinarily high level of video processing performance, the DHD Controller
may distribute video signals with a perceptible level of audio latency. In order to easily
solve this issue, Runco recommends using the DHD Controller with a high-quality audio
receiver that has the ability to effectively synchronize audio and video signals.
PR
Most mainstream audio receiver/switchers have the ability to synchronize the audio and
video to the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) prescribed tolerances.
According to the ATSC, the sound program should never lead the video program by more
than 15 milliseconds, and should never lag behind the video program by more than 45
milliseconds.
In addition, many video displays and A/V receivers introduce additional latency that needs
to be compensated for during the installation.
Table 3-2 shows the amount of possible audio latency given different signal input timings.

Ventilation ➤
If you are mounting the V-50HD/V-63HD in an enclosure, leave sufficient space on all
sides between it and surrounding objects, as shown in Figure 3-1. This allows heat to
disperse, maintaining the proper operating temperature.

In general, minimize or eliminate light sources directed at the display. Contrast ratio in your
images will be noticeably reduced if light directly strikes the display, such as when a shaft
of light from a window or floodlight falls on the image. Images may then appear washed
out and less vibrant.
Other considerations and tips that can help improve your installation:
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 35°C (95°F). Keep the display away
from heating and/or air conditioning vents. Changes in temperature may cause drifts in
the display circuitry, which may affect performance.
• Keep the display away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy such as
motors and transformers. Common sources of these include slide projectors,
speakers, power amplifiers and elevators.
Rack-Mounting the DHD ➤
Controller
The DHD Controller can be placed on any flat, stable surface such as a shelf or table, or it
can be rack-mounted using the supplied mounting hardware. Place the DHD Controller in
a location that provdes easy access to the power connector.
To mount the DHD Controller in a standard, 19-inch equipment rack, install the mounting
ears on either side of the chassis using the supplied screws. Then, secure the mounting
ears to the rack.

Connections to the
V-50HD/V-63HD and
DHD Controller
When connecting your equipment:
• Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
• Use the correct signal cables for each source.
Y
• For best performance and to minimize cable clutter, use high-quality cables that are
only as long as necessary to connect two devices. (Don’t use a 20-foot cable when a
6-foot cable will suffice.)
EL
IM
IN
A
R
• Ensure that the cables are securely connected. Tighten the thumbscrews on
connectors that have them.
Connect the HDMI Out To Display connector on the DHD Controller to the PRIMARY
INPUT connector on the V-50HD/V-63HD. See Figure 3-2. Then, re-attach the input
cover plate, routing the cable through the nearest slot on the plate.
Use an HDMI cable for this connection. A DVI cable with
DVI-to-HDMI adapters will not work.

The currently-selected aspect ratio is indicated by a “7” to its left; in this example, 16:9 is
selected.
Note that some aspect ratios are unavailable and/or not useful with certain types of
source material. The optimal setting depends on a number of factors, such as:
• The aspect ratio of the source material, as broadcast or encoded on the playback
medium.
• The “display type” (16:9 or 4:3) and output resolution settings at the source
component. Most modern DVD/BD players and set-top boxes have such controls.
• Viewer preference (original aspect ratio with “black bars,” or a full-screen presentation
with some distortion or cropping).
Note
The aspect ratio selection is automatically saved for each input and
resolution.

The DHD Controller has been designed to incorporate setup and calibration standards
established by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). The ISF has developed carefully
crafted, industry-recognized standards for optimal video performance and has
implemented a training program for technicians and installers to use these standards to
obtain optimal picture quality from Runco video display devices. Accordingly, Runco
recommends that setup and calibration be performed by an ISF certified installation
technician.
All signal types require separate processing. Therefore, you need to calibrate each DHD
Controller input separately.
Note
When you change a picture quality setting, save the change to a
preset afterwards. Otherwise, the change will be lost when a
different input is selected. (Picture quality settings are saved for
each input and display mode separately.) For information about
saving settings, refer to Memory Presets on page 38.
PR
Although it may be possible to obtain satisfactory picture quality using the naked eye and
regular program material, Runco recommends using an external test pattern source
(Ovation Multimedia, Digital Video Essentials or AVIA test DVD or equivalent) for best
results.
Connect your test pattern source to the input that you are calibrating and proceed as
follows. Perform the adjustments in the order listed here.
Brightness: On your external test pattern source, select a PLUGE pattern. (PLUGE is an
acronym for “Picture Line-Up Generation Equipment.”) Figure 4-2 shows a typical PLUGE
pattern.

PLUGE patterns vary but generally consist of some combination of black, white and gray
areas against a black background. The example above includes two vertical bars and four
shaded boxes.
Select Brightness from the Picture menu and press ENTER. Adjust the brightness so that:
• The darkest black bars disappear into the background.
• The dark gray areas are barely visible.
• The lighter gray areas are clearly visible.
• The white areas are a comfortable level of true white.
• The image contains only black, gray and white (no color).

Tint: Tint or “hue” is essentially the ratio of red to green in the color portion of the image.
When tint is decreased, the image appears redder; when it is increased the image
appears greener.
To adjust the tint, enable “blue only” display mode in the Diagnostics menu, as you would
for adjusting color saturation (refer to the previous section, Color Saturation).

Overscan/Overscan Mode: Overscan pushes the outside edge of the active picture
area of the video signal out beyond the edge of the display area.
Some television programs are produced based on the assumption that older television
sets may not display the outer edges of the broadcast picture area. Overscan effectively
trims away these inactive, outer edges and enlarges the remaining portion of the image to
fill the display area.

For HDTV, DVDs and other video sources, Overscan is generally not necessary or
desirable.

This control defines the amount of overscan applied to the image. The range is from
0 to 20. There are two overscan modes:
• In Crop mode, each increment adds a mask at the top, bottom, left and right edges of
the source image equal to 0.5% of the displayed horizontal resolution (1% total). A
setting of 10, for example, crops the image 5% on all sides or 10% total.
• In Zoom mode, each increment adds a factor to the scaling of the source image so
that the vertical and horizontal resolutions are 100% plus 1% increments of the size
determined by the aspect ratio function. A setting of 10, for example, zooms in on the
image 5% on all sides or 10% total.
Figure 4-6 illustrates the effect of each overscan mode setting.

Phase (RGB, Component or SCART sources): This control adjusts the phase of the

Adjust the Phase after adjusting Tracking (see below).
Tip
Y
For best results, use a good test pattern such as a smooth gray consisting of a clear
pattern of black and white pixels, or a similar “half on, half off” graphic image. Adjust the
slidebar until the image stabilizes and each pixel is clearly defined. You may notice that
you can stabilize the image at more than one point. Use either setting in such cases.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Tracking (RGB, Component or SCART sources): Tracking determines the frequency
of the pixel sampling clock, indicated by the number of incoming pixels per line, so that all
pixels generated by a particular source are sampled.
Steady flickering or several soft vertical stripes or bands across the entire image indicates
poor pixel tracking. Proper pixel tracking helps ensure that the image quality is consistent
across the screen, that aspect ratio is maintained and that pixel phase (see above) can be
optimized.

• Gain: Use the Gain controls to correct color imbalances in the bright areas of the
image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of solid white
areas, such as an 80 IRE “window” pattern. If the white areas contain traces of red (Pr),
green (Y) or blue (Pr), decrease the Gain for that color.
• Offset: Use the Offset controls to correct color imbalances in the dark areas of the
image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of dark gray
areas, such as a 30 IRE “window” pattern. If the gray areas contain traces of red (Pr),
green (Y) or blue (Pr), decrease the Offset for that color.
• Gamma: Select Gamma from the Display Color - Common Settings menu to choose a
de-gamma curve. Used correctly, the Gamma control can improve contrast while
maintaining good details for blacks and whites. If excess ambient light washes out the
image and it becomes difficult or impossible to see details in dark areas, lower the
gamma setting to compensate. This improves contrast while maintaining good details
for blacks. Conversely, if the image is washed out and unnatural, with excessive detail
in black areas, increase the setting.
PR
• Mode: With the V-50HD/V-63HD, two Gamma adjustment modes are available:
Simple or Advanced. The two modes are mutually exclusive; when you select the
Simple mode, the Advanced selection in the Gamma menu is grayed out. Likewise,
when you select Advanced, the Simple selection is grayed out.
• Simple: Use the Simple Gamma control to perform gamma correction at the display
according to a simple power law gamma function. The value chosen here
corresponds to the power variable in this equation:
Output = InputPower
The DHD Controller applies this gamma curve to all three primary color channels
(red, green and blue).
• Advanced: To select a custom gamma curve, select Mode from the Gamma menu
and set it to Advanced. Then, select Advanced from the Gamma menu to select one
of up to 20 pre-programmed gamma tables. Custom gamma tables provide the
ability to perform complex, non-linear gamma correction on each primary color
channel independently of the others.

• Color Temp: Select Color Temp from the Display Color - Common Settings menu to

What are “color points?” A “color point” is an x/y coordinate pair that defines a
color’s location on the standard CIE chromaticity graph, shown in Figure 4-7. (CIE
stands for “Commission Internationale de l’Éclairage” (International Commission on
Illumination), the organization responsible for color measurement and management
standards.)

• Panel Brightness: The Panel Brightness control changes the apparent brightness of
the displayed image. Its effect is similar to that of a lamp intensity control on a projector.
Use a higher setting for rooms with a lot of ambient light. Use a lower setting for more
“theater-like” viewing conditions (little or no ambient light).
To prolong the life of the display, set the Panel Brightness only as
high as is necessary to produce the desired brightness.
• Power Mode: Select Power Mode from the Display Color - Panel Settings menu to set
the power consumption threshold for the panel: High, Normal or Eco. The default
setting is High.
Input Image: The Input Image controls are functionally similar to those in the Picture
menu (refer to page 32), but are accessible only by entering the Calibration menu
passcode.
The Input Image settings establish the “zero point” for the Picture
menu settings, whose values represent offsets from the Input
Image settings. For example, if you set Brightness to 10 in this
menu, setting Brightness to 10 in the Picture menu results in an
actual setting value of 20 (10+10).
PR
Note
Input Color: The Input Color controls are similar to those in the Display Color menu (see
above), but adjust the color balance of the incoming signal. These settings are also saved
independently for each input and display mode.
• Gain/Offset (HD1, HD2 and Component/SCART inputs only): These controls
operate similarly to those in the Display Color - Common Settings menu (described
on page 41), but affect the Y, Pb and Pr signal components rather than the red, green
and blue channels.
• Chroma Delay: use the Chroma Delay control to correct a mis-aligned image from a
composite video source. Chroma delay in an image causes color shifts to occur to the
left of the vertical edge transitions, producing artificial shadows or a “halo” effect. If
necessary, adjust this setting to eliminate them.
• Noise Filter: To apply noise filtering to the input signal, select Noise Filter from the
Input Color menu. The Noise Filter is useful for clearing up noisy images from 480i
video sources.
Use the left- or right-arrow buttons to select the desired amount of noise reduction,
keeping in mind that higher settings (which reduce high frequencies) may also “soften”
the image.

• You have multiple DHD Controllers and want to control them independently, as
opposed to broadcasting commands from a single remote to all of them. In this
scenario, you can use multiple remotes programmed to use different IR codes. Or,
you can use a single remote and change the IR code as needed to address a
specific DHD Controller.
Use the serial command REMOTECODE [0 ... 31] to change
the IR code to which the controller will respond (refer to
Miscellaneous Commands on page 63). Then, change the code
sent by the remote to match as described below.
When you change a remote code on the DHD Controller, you must re-program the
DHD Controller remote control to send that same code. To do this:
PR
1. Press and hold the LIGHT button on the
remote control for approximately three
seconds, or until the LED on the remote lights
solid red.
2. Enter a new two-digit code between 00 and 31
inclusive. Include a leading zero for single-digit
codes; for example, enter 9 as “09.”
LIGHT
ON
OFF
3. The LED turns off to confirm the code change. If you enter an invalid code, the LED
flashes for three or four seconds. Try again, entering a valid code.

Operation
Sync Threshold: Select Sync Threshold to adjust the threshold at which negative pulses
on the component video green/luma channel are interpreted to be sync pulses.
Sync Threshold adjustment is occasionally necessary when a DVD player or HDTV source
signal drops “below black” (for example, during scenes with explosions or when subtitles
are present) and causes the display to temporarily lose sync. If the sync level from the
source is persistently too low, the display device won’t sync with the source at all.
The range is from 0 (approximately 60 millivolts (mV)) to 15 (approximately 300mV).
HDMI: Select HDMI from the Service menu to set the following options affecting
communication between HDMI sources, the DHD Controller and the V-50HD/V-63HD.

• HDMI EDID Extension: Extended display identification data (EDID) is a data structure
provided by a display device to describe its capabilities to a graphics card. It is what
enables a modern personal computer to know what kind of monitor is connected.
Some modern display devices provide more information via EDID than others, in the
form of “extensions.” Some computer graphics cards do recognize or properly interpret
this extended EDID information.
Select HDMI EDID Extension from the HDMI menu to specify whether or not the EDID
extensions from the display device are passed through to the sources connected to the
HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3 or HDMI 4 inputs. By default, the extensions are on. Change
these settings only if HDMI EDID incompatibility issues arise.
• Audio Format: Select Audio Format from the HDMI menu to choose an option for
routing the audio signal from an HDMI source. With the V-50HD/V-63HD, the
recommended setting is HDMI Out (Audio Only). (This is also the default setting.)
PR
• CEC: This control chooses whether or not the DHD Controller responds to HDMI CEC
control messages from a disc player, set-top box or other HDMI source. It also enables
or disables CEC communication between the DHD Controller and display.
The default (and recommended) setting is On. For more information about CEC, refer
to Using HDMI CEC Messages on page 68.
Caution
Do not set CEC to “Off” unless specifically instructed to do
so by Runco Technical Support. If you do, the system will not
work properly.
Note
The DHD Controller does not transmit HDMI CEC control
messages from the “HDMI Audio Out” connector, regardless of the
CEC setting.
• HPD Toggle Rejection: Select HPD Toggle Rejection from the HDMI menu to specify
whether or not the DHD Controller ignores extraneous Hot Plug Detect (HPD) signal
state changes from a downstream HDMI device (third-party display or audio/video
receiver).
The default setting is Off. Set it to On when troubleshooting compatibility issues or to
reduce the amount of time needed to lock to an incoming signal.

Standby Mode: Select Standby Mode from the Service menu to control the DHD
Controller’s power management feature.
• Choose Low Power (the default setting) to have the DHD Controller shut down
completely when it is turned off. This conserves power but increases the amount of
time required by the DHD Controller to start up when it is turned on.
• Fast Startup is a “quick-start” mode that keeps the DHD Controller running when it is
turned off even though it appears to be in standby mode. This allows for much quicker
startup times but consumes more power.
System Reset: To reset ALL controller settings (including image settings) back to their
factory defaults, choose System Reset from the Service menu.
A confirmation message appears. Select Yes to continue with the reset or select No to
cancel.
Caution
This action is not undoable. Proceed with caution! Before you
perform a System Reset, save your “Custom” Memory Presets

6. External Control
In addition to using the DHD Controller remote control unit, there are three methods of
controlling the V-50HD/V-63HD and DHD Controller externally:
• Using a serial (RS-232) link to send ASCII commands and receive responses to those
commands.
• Using discrete infrared (IR) codes to program a third-party remote control unit.
Y
• Using an HDMI connection to send Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) commands
from a BD player or other source component that supports CEC.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
The following sections describe these methods.
The DHD Controller uses a simple text-based control protocol to take requests from
control devices and to provide responses to such devices. This section describes how to
send control messages over a serial link between the DHD Controller and an
automation/control system or a PC running terminal emulation software.
6.1
Serial Communications
Connect your control system or PC to the RS-232 input of the DHD Controller as shown
in Figure 3-9.
RS-232 Connection and
Port Configuration
Configure the RS-232 controller or PC serial port as follows: no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop
bit and no flow control. Set the baud rate to 19200, to match that of the DHD Controller
RS-232 port.
Serial commands to the DHD Controller take the following form:
PR
• Commands are not case-sensitive.
• For a single command that takes no parameters, type the command followed by a
carriage return; for example, to set the aspect ratio to Letterbox, type
LETTERBOX <Enter>.
• For a single command that takes a parameter, type the command, a space or a
comma and the desired value followed by a carriage return; for example, to set the
brightness to -10, type BRIGHTNESS -10 <Enter> or
BRIGHTNESS,-10 <Enter>.
• You can also send a string of multiple commands on a single line, separated by
commas. For example, COMPOSITE,BRIGHTNESS 50,16:9 <Enter> switches to
the Composite video input, sets the brightness to 50 and sets the aspect ratio to 16:9.
Command strings can be up to 255 characters long.
Note
Avoid combining the ON or POWER 1 commands with other commands
on a single line. After sending ON or POWER 1, allow at least five (5)
seconds for the DHD Controller to power up. If you have enabled the
ISF splash screen (refer to Splash Configure on page 46), allow 15
seconds for the DHD Controller to power up.
Once it does, it will accept and properly execute multiple serial
commands.

Serial Command Syntax
External Control
Table 6-1 lists the RS-232 command set. The “Parameter (min/max)” column shows the
valid parameter ranges, or “NA” for commands that take no parameters.
When you enter a valid command, the DHD Controller executes it and acknowledges it
with a plus sign on the command line (+ >). When you enter an invalid command – one
that is misspelled or followed by values outside the valid range for that command – the
DHD Controller ignores it and returns a minus sign (- >).

The DHD Controller accepts commands in the form of IR signals that conform to the
Phillips RC5 protocol. Each DHD Controller remote control button has an RC5 control
code associated with it.
PR
You can use these codes to program a third-party, “universal” remote control unit to work
with the DHD Controller. These third-party products usually come with a computer
software application for this purpose. For more information, consult the documentation
provided with the remote control unit.
IR Command Protocol ➤
The IR control codes have the following characteristics:
• Each code consists of 14 bits:
• Two (2) start bits (always 1);
• A toggle bit. This bit is inverted every time a key is released and pressed again. This
allows the DHD Controller to distinguish between a button that remains down and
one that is pressed repeatedly.
• Five (5) address bits. The default address is 17 (binary 10001). To change it, select
Remote Code from the Miscellaneous menu (in the Service menu) and follow the
steps given on page 53.
• Six (6) data bits.
• The carrier frequency is 36 kHz, with the modulated pulses having a 25% duty cycle.
• Commands are sent at a maximum rate of 9 Hz.

Using HDMI CEC
Messages
The DHD Controller accepts and can respond to CEC command messages from a disc
player, satellite receiver or DVR/set-top box via an HDMI connection. Using CEC, the DHD
Controller can perform the following actions:
• Turn itself and the display device on and select the correct input when the source
component initiates playback of a disc or recorded program.
• Turn the source component on when you switch to its corresponding input on the DHD
Controller.
• Turn the source component off when the DHD Controller is turned off (unless the
source component is in playback mode).
Y
• Change its OSD language when a similar change is made at the source.

To use CEC, connect your CEC-compatible sources to the HDMI inputs on the
V-50HD/V-63HD. Set the CEC option to On (refer to CEC on page 54). Additional steps
may be needed to enable CEC at the source. Refer to the documentation for your source
device for more information.
