CLEARPLAY OPERATION
To use the ClearPlay feature, it must first be activated. To activate visit www.ClearPlay.com/427.
Your DVD player has the ClearPlay technology that allows you to watch your favorite movies free of
content you may consider offensive. With ClearPlay, you can load a ClearPlay Filter™ for each DVD
movie and then skip or mute objectionable content based on different Filter settings that you can
customize to your preference. For example, you can watch your favorite action movie without having
to hear offensive language or having to see different types of violence.
The Parental Control feature allows you to configure ClearPlay settings on your player, set movie
Blocking, and protect your settings with a password. See 24 27 for more details about Parental Control
options.
The ClearPlay menu has the following options:
•
Settings (Choose what content you want filtered, see page 20)
•
Filters (View or delete ClearPlay Filters on the player, see page 23)
•
Blocking (Blocks certain movies based on rating, see page 21)
•
Password (Locks ClearPlay settings with a password, see page 21)
For each movie you want to watch with ClearPlay filtering you will first need to load a ClearPlay Filter
for that movie. For more information about how to receive new ClearPlay Filters, visit www.ClearPlay.

FORMATS YOU CAN PLAY
While advances have been made to ensure that your disc player is compatible with the largest number of discs
possible, it cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to play discs which might not be compliant with audio CD
standards. In the case of writable and re-writable discs, compatibility with this player depends on the CD/DVD writer,
the authoring/writing software and the disc used.
DVD-VIDEO
MP3 Files
Digital video discs -12 cm and 8 cm, single or double
sided, single or dual layer. DVD’s are high-density
optical discs on which high quality picture and audio
are recorded by means of digital signals.
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio files in MP3
format. As for CD-R MP3 discs, please follow all the
recommendations for CD-R above, along with the
comments below:
DVD±R/W
Digital video discs -12 cm and 8 cm, single or double
sided, single or dual layer. DVD’s are high-density
optical discs on which high quality picture and audio
are recorded by means of digital signals.
•
Your MP3 files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET
format. ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 files are
compatible with Microsoft’s DOS and Windows,
as well as with Apple Mac. These two formats are
the most widely used.
•
MP3 filenames should not exceed 10 characters,
and should end with the “.mp3” extension.
General name format: “Title.mp3”. When
composing your title ensure that you use 8
characters or less, have no spaces in the name,
and avoid the use of special characters including
( . / \ = +).
•
Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128 kb/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording
MP3 files. Sound quality with MP3 files
basically depends on the rate of compression
/ decompression you choose. Obtaining audio
CD quality sound requires an analog/digital
sampling rate, that is conversion to MP3 format,
of at least 32 kb/sec and up to 160 kb/sec. Files
with sampling rates below 32 kb/sec will not play
properly.
•
Do not try recording copyright-protected MP3
files. “Secured” files are encrypted and codeprotected to prevent illegal copying. You must
not copy such files
Video CD (VCD) / Super Video CD (SVCD)
VCD stands for Video Compact Disc which contains
video footage, still images, audio tracks and interactive
menus.
Audio CD’s / HDCD
Standard Red Book Audio CD’s (8 and 12cm). This DVD
Player is also capable of playing HDCD encoded discs,
these discs have an improved sampling rate for better
listening experience.
CD-R & CD-RW
Most CD-R (one recording only) and CD-RW discs
(re-writable). This player can play most CD-R discs.
CD-R’s written during a multi-session recording can also
be played, provided that the session has ended before
the disc is played (depending on the burning software).
However, depending on the CD writer, computer and
the disc used, you may find that not all discs will play
successfully. When playing a CD-R disc, it is completely
normal for the unit to take up to 20 seconds to
recognize the disc before starting to play. If the disc is
not recognized after a period of 20 seconds, remove
the disc, and then insert it again.
•
Irrespective of the actual recording capacity of
the CD-R, do not use its full capacity.
•
CD-R’s should be preferably used instead of
CD-RW’s (re-writable CD’s) as, in certain cases,
CD-RW playback may be faulty.
•
Use reliable, good-quality CD burning software.
•
Close all other applications on the computer to
ensure reliable CD-R disc recording.
Important:
The above recommendations cannot be taken as a
guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3 recordings,
or as an assurance of sound quality. You should note that
certain technologies and methods for MP3 file recording
on CD-R’s prevent optimal playback of these files on your
DVD player (i.e. degraded sound quality and even, in some
cases, inability of the player to read the file).
JPEG Files
CD-R and CD-RW with JPEG files. JPEG is a compressed
image file format.
Note: Display time may vary according to the file size
of JPEG files.
Files on the USB Flash Drive
This player is compatible with USB 2.0 devices. Only FAT
or FAT32 format is supported.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS ON CLEARPLAY FUNCTION
Q. If the movie Blocking is set below R, will the player
allow me to watch an R rated movie?
Q.Where can I find out what ClearPlay Filters are

hold?
A.Each Filter is a different size. In the Parental Control
Menu, you can see how much free space there is

without ClearPlay?
A.Yes, if ClearPlay is ON in the parental menu, each
time you insert a DVD, you will have the option
to watch the movie with ClearPlay or without
ClearPlay (“Normal Play”).
Q. What are the Parental Advisories on the Filter?
Q. I am watching a movie with ClearPlay, but it is not
filtering content.
A.ClearPlay provides you with additional information
to help you decide if a movie is appropriate for
your home. The Parental Advisories listed are
themes that you might want to be aware of before

A.Try deleting the Filter from the player, then
re-downloading the Filter from ClearPlay. If you
continue to have trouble with ClearPlay Filtering,

the DVD player memory is full.
A. If the DVD player memory is full, you will need
to delete some Filters from the player memory
before you can add new Filters. See page 23 for
information on Viewing/Deleting ClearPlay Filters.
