Quick start guide
Setup and Connections:
1. Display - If you plan to play music from DVD, BluRay, USB or Network, attach any display to HDMI 1.
2. Internet - If you plan to stream from the internet or want a firmware update online, plug COMPUTER LAN into any computer
network (wireless is not recommended).
3. Connect Audio - For use with an MSB DAC, use the MSB CAT-6 cable to connect MSB ProI2S OUTPUT to the MSB ProI2S
INPUT on the DAC. For other DACs, connect any of the DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUTS (1 to 5) to the DAC.
Disc Operations: Normally for disc operations you just put the disc in and it will start playing. Volume up/down buttons on the remote
actually control the volume of the DAC IV plus.
Basic File Operations: Get to know the HOME MENU button, navigation arrows and RETURN buttons on the remote. They get you
around the operation of the transport. All sources are treated basically the same, whether they are CD, USB Memory stick or Network
streaming. You select and browse the source.
Video Settings:
Feel free to browse and adjust video and HDMI settings as needed. They can be changed using the dedicated remote buttons, or changed
in the Video Setup Menu. Either way changes will be saved when the unit is put in Standby.
Audio Settings:
Any adjustment of audio processing menu settings may dramatically hurt the audio quality. The only “safe” setting is audio delay if needed.
Advanced Audio Settings:
There is a hidden Advanced Audio menu. This is the place to select multichannel, DSD and clock options.
Factory Reset:
If all goes wrong do a reset to factory settings. This resets all
settings. It will not delete your Subscription passwords (like Netflix).

PRESS <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <CLEAR>
Network Player:
This unit will play music from any computer or storage device on your network, but they must first be shared. You can share your music
on a network storage device. Instructions for sharing vary depending on your computer OS and applications.
Burn-In:
The concept of burn-in is little understood. Does it take your ears some time to get used to the incredibly detailed and life-like sound of
an MSB product or is something actually changing? The feedback we receive leads us to recommend at least 100 hours of burn-in on
this UMT. Customers generally recommend one month.
Warning: Please verify that the UMT you just purchased is covered under warranty. This UMT was sold to the Distributor named on
your box label If the country and year do not match your purchase location, your warranty may be invalid. Check with MSB.

Here is the back panel of an MSB DAC. Note the ProI2S input on the DAC (Green Ring). This special input can be connected to the
UMT ProI2S output and this connection will not only transfer data bit perfectly, but will do it without any ground connection, PLUS
the low jitter clock in the DAC will be sent to the UMT, and the UMT will operate in sync with the DAC clock.
This connection is made with an MSB Network cable or any CAT-5 or CAT-6 cable. The connection will not work with CAT-7 or
shielded cables.
MSB System
Although the UMT can be used with any DAC there are special features that can only be enjoyed with an MSB DAC. The big limitation
is the standard S/PDIF digital audio output format. Is is limited to 24 bits. The MSB ProI2S which is used to connect the UMT to an
MSB DAC is limited to 32 bits, so extra resolution is provided with the MSB DAC. The UMT also communicates DSD directly to the
DAC when an SACD is played. This resolution comes into play with sources like SACD and multichannel DTS and Dolby Digital HD
Blu-ray discs.
With the fantastic detail of the DAC IV, we recommend not using an external preamp, but taking advantage of the passive stepped attenuator
option in the DAC IV. With no preamp to muddy the signal, the amp is presented with an amazingly detailed signal.
Also please consider one of the MSB Amps, also optimized for the speed and accuracy of the MSB DAC.
The S201 is a Class A 200 Watt Stereo Amplifier, perfectly matched to reveal all the detail of the MSB DAC.

Rear Panel Details
1. Power Input – This product must be plugged into a Signature Transport Power Base, any of the DAC IV power bases with a digital
supply or an external desktop supply. For improved performance plug in a second supply. This completely separates the video and
drive part of the UMT from the Audio part.
2. RS-232– The RS-232 input is for control of the unit. For use with complete system controllers.
3. Computer LAN Port– This is for connection the UMT to a home computer network for streaming and for connection to the internet.
4. Video Monitor Output– A standard analog video output is only for looking at menus and navigation.
5. Surround Coaxial Output– This is only to be used with an external surround processor. It’s not recommended for normal use.
6. Surround Toslink Output– This is only to be used with an external surround processor. It’s not recommended for normal use.
7. HDMI 2– This is a secondary HDMI output. For normal operation use HDMI 1.
8. HDMI 1– This is the primary HDMI output. This is the preferred method of connection a video display.
9. External 512x Clock in or out. This impressive clock port will accept and use an external clock if the clock is present, and if it is
the right frequency. Otherwise the internal clock will be used. Can also be configured to output the current master clock.
10. USB 2.0 Port– This port is the same as the front. It is to be used with the optional wireless network device or an external USB hard
drive or USB flash drive.
11. USB 2.0 Port– This port is the same as the front. It is to be used with the optional wireless network device or an external USB hard
drive or USB flash drive.
12. IR In Port– An IR port for use with an external receiver. The tip of a 3.5 mm Mono plug is the IR carrier, the sleeve is ground.
13. Toslink – The highest jitter format but offering ground isolation and noise immunity over long runs. Limited to 24 bit data.
14. Three Coaxial – A good output for short runs. Limited to 24 bit data. These default to front channel and are all the same. In surround
mode, each becomes a surround pair, offering a full digital 7.1 system output.
15. Balanced digital – The AES/EBU Professional output is the preferred output for non-MSB equipment. The balanced nature of this
output allows great cable lengths as well as total noise immunity. Limited to 24 bit data. In surround mode, this is your non- MSB
front channel output.
16. MSB ProI2S output – The MSB connection uses CAT-6 cabling. It provides an output for use with other MSB products. It can
handle 8 channels of data up to 192 kHz and 32 bits.
Multi Channel MODE outputs
The default mode for the UMT is STEREO outputs as shown above.
If you select the MULTICHANNEL mode, than the outputs are
redefined as shown. To set UMT to MULTICHANNEL mode:
On the remote press: <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <6>
TO SET BACK TO 2 CHANNEL OUTPUT: On the remote press:
<DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <4>
Note: With an MSB DAC the MSB ProI2S should be used for
the front channels as this will assure that there is no latency or
lip sync issues.

Connections
Video Connections
The UMT has a range of applications. If your only use is the playing of audio discs, then no video connection is required. The system
setup is optimum for you and all you have to do is make the proper audio connections. If your interests is in playing music from a Hard
Disc, USB stick or from a computer network, then a video display is needed for navigation. A small computer monitor with no audio
and an HDMI input would be ideal. If you plan to watch DVDs or Blu-Ray discs then the UMT will need to be connected to your video
display or projector.
Method 1 – HDMI Connection Directly to a Display
If your Display has an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) input, you can use the
included HDMI cable to connect the player to the Display. This connection method delivers
both video and audio in a digital format via a single cable. The HDMI video output of the
player allows for the highest possible video quality and resolution. The audio is of low quality
and should NOT be used.
There are two HDMI output terminals (HDMI 1 and HDMI 2) on the rear panel of UMT, both
of which can be connected to your Display. We recommend to use HDMI 1 since it benefits
from the dedicated Marvell DEO video processor, and set the “Primary Output” option in the
setup menu to “HDMI 1” (below). This output should also be set to “Video Only”.
You may connect the composite video cable to a TV for troubleshooting purposes, or if only
menu navigation is desired, because it only produces a standard definition video signal and forfeits the advantage of high definition video.
Method 2 – DVI Connection to a Display
If your display has a DVI input that supports HDCP, you can purchase an HDMIDVI adapter cable to connect the player to the display. This connection method
delivers digital video to the display without any signal degradation. The HDMI
video output of the UMT presents the highest possible video quality and resolution.
We recommend to use HDMI 1 since it can benefit from the dedicated video
processor, and set the “Primary Output” option in the setup menu to “HDMI 1”
(please see more details below).
Video Settings
Primary Output: To select the primary video output port. The options are:
• HDMI 1 – Use HDMI 1 as the primary video output port. This setting will ensure that the HDMI 1 output gets the best possible
picture quality. The dedicated QDEO DE2750 video processor will be used unless “Source Direct” for output resolution is selected,
in which case QDEO DE2750 video processor is bypassed. Component and composite video output may not be available or may be
limited to a lower resolution based on content source limitations.
• HDMI 2 – Use HDMI 2 as the primary video output port. Similar to “HDMI 1”, this setting ensures that the HDMI 2 output gets
the best possible picture quality, except that it utilizes the video decoder in the player to perform necessary video processing, not the
DE2750 video processor.
Audio Connection
Audio on HDMI
Although the UMT can output audio over HDMI, this audio will not benefit from the MSB processing and its use is not recommended.
We set the HDMI Audio output to “OFF”.
Audio Ground Noise
Today we are on a new frontier of performance with new multi-media sources loaded with electrical noise unlike anything we ever
experienced in the past. At the same time we have made great improvements in jitter, the enemy of the last decade, making ground noise
which used to be lost in the jitter, the dominant problem. And again, grounding issues are back, making a huge difference, but now in
harshness, focus, detail and air, instead of hum.
There is no intuition, right or wrong with high frequency ground noise. When all we had to deal with was 60 Hz AC hum, the concept
was easy to visualize. Get rid of ground loops. But now we are fighting a new animal. We have had some idea about ground noise, but our
experience has shown just how tricky it is. It all started for me with the question of why the sound changed when I changed my digital
cable? The DAC reclocks and all the bits arrive correctly in memory. What is different? Ground noise. Now as we do network streaming
and have a Blu-ray player hooked up to an LCD monitor as a source, the matrix becomes impossible to deal with anyway but the old
way. Try making changes and listen.
6
The Ground Lift feature of the DAC IV
This feature is the most powerful tool available for UMT setup and makes a huge difference in sound!
So we have given you all the tools to get it right. The most important is a ground lift in the DAC IV menus that disconnects the analog
part of the DAC output stage from the chassis and digital ground. The idea is to avoid ground loops and if your Amps are grounded this
connection SHOULD be lifted. If your AMPs float, lifting this ground connection could result in the destruction of your DAC should you
accidentally discharge a lot of static to the AMP. So make sure the Amplifier case is grounded before doing the ground lift.
The ProI2S Interface
The next tool is the interconnect. The job of the interconnect is to get the digital bits from the transport to the DAC. We want all the bits
sent without errors. All the interconnect types will do this. The standard connections are limited to 24 bits and the MSB network is 32
bits. Otherwise they all do the same job, EXCEPT were it relates to ground noise. Here we have big differences. Optical has no ground
and the balanced almost no ground. Coax has a transformer coupled ground and the MSB ProI2S has absolutely no ground. This is the
best of all worlds and is the preferred output for the UMT. If you do not have the PRO input on your DAC and you are hooked up to
video, you may well find the optical connection best sounding. There is no ground connection at all. There is no rule. Any could sound
best in your system. You just have to try them.
UMT with Dual Power Supplies
The final layer of isolation is the use of two power supplies. This further isolates the video and audio parts of the UMT. The sonic impact
of this isolation will be system dependent and may vary from minor to major depending on the exact configuration of your system and
the quality of your power. See the power section below.
UMT with Non-MSB DAC
With a UMT set up for use without an MSB DAC, the highest quality digital connection should be made with the DAC that the DAC
can support. We would generally rank the connections in this order: Balanced XLR, Coaxial RCA, Optical. If your DAC supports DSD
via DoP than you are all set. If not you need to reprogram the UMT to output PCM DSD when an SACD is played (This mode is not
available in the MULTICHANNEL MODE).
TO SET DSD TO PCM OUTPUT: On the remote press: <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <5>
TO SET DSD BACK TO DoP OUPUT: On the remote press: <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <4>
Clock Links
The single most important component of good sound in a transport is low jitter. In the UMT we have taken this problem very seriously.
The best possible clock for the UMT is the clock of the DAC. When this clock is used to run the UMT, the audio and video in the UMT
is actually clocked from the DAC clock. This can be accomplished with an MSB DAC using the ProI2S connection. In this case the
clock in the UMT is only used to get the UMT going until the DAC link is established. With an older MSB DAC or a non-MSB DAC,
the clock is vitally important.
This view of the UMT has the optional Red Femto140 clock
installed.
The Galaxy Femtosecond Clock is the ultimate clock for the
lowest possible jitter.
7
MSB Clock Header
The UMT offers an amazing opportunity to install the lowest jitter clock in the world and use it to clock our data going to non MSB
DACs with depend on the incoming data stream to recover the clock.
The standard MSB Clock Header allows both the Femto140 Clock and the Galaxy Femtosecond Clock to be installed. It is user installable.
Just plug it in and the UMT will detect it and start using it.
External Clock Interface
The UMT is truly flexible when it comes to clock interfaces. A clock BNC connector is provided which can be used as an external 512x
clock in or out. This impressive clock port will accept and use an external clock if the clock is present, and if it is the right frequency.
If the clock is not correct or not present, the internal clock will be used. This assures seamless operation.
Now just a comment about clocks. A master clock is 512 times the base sample rate. So a 48 kHz DVD needs a master clock of 24.576
MHz. This is not the same clock needed for a CD. So you cannot really just add an external clock and expect everything to be great.
The clock must be changed to match the material being played. How does the clock know? It doesn’t. This is what is so clever about
the ProI2S interface. The UMT starts out using its internal clock to read the media. Once the sample rate of the material is established,
the UMT tells the DAC and the DAC switches its internal clock to match the UMT and then sends that clock back to the UMT. It senses
the new incoming clock and seamlessly merges to the new clock. But with our clever automatic clock switching, you can hook up an
external clock for CDs for example, and when a CD is played, the external clock will be used, but when DVDs are played, the UMT will
see that the external clock is the wrong frequency and will just use the internal clock instead. Totally seamless.
This clock interface can also be configured to output the current master clock. So you can see that a better option would be to set the
UMT clock interface as an output and send the low jitter master clock to the DAC, provided that the DAC has the ability to accept an
external master clock.
Again, just for clarity, we are talking about a master clock, not a word clock. A word clock is at the sampling rate of the media and will
have to be multiplied up 512 times to make a useful clock inside a DAC. This is a poor alternative. We do not support word clock in
or out of the UMT.
DEFAULT CLOCK PORT: INPUT
TO SET CLOCK PORT TO OUTPUT: On the remote press: <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <0>
TO SET CLOCK PORT BACK TO INPUT: On the remote press: <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <DIMMER> <9>
Power Connection
The UMT must be connected to a 12 VDC supply with a 5 pin DIN connector. But that is just the basic requirement. The quality of the
power supply directly affects the quality of both the audio and video. The UMT is unique in having the option to use either one or two
power supplies. Basically when power is detected on the second power connector, the grounds and power supplies are disconnected for
the audio and video processing. This is an automatic function. When the power is unplugged from the second supply, the video and
audio are again combined. The second supply becomes the AUDIO supply and should be of the highest quality. This is very important
even if you are not using video with the UMT as the drive, and drive controller and video processing still takes place to some degree
even if video is not used and can corrupt the audio by coupling noise through the power supply connections.
You have many options here.
First of all, all DAC IV Power Bases have a transport power supply included. It can be used for either audio or video.
One or two separate medical grade switching desktop supplies are offered and can be used for either audio or video.

The Signature Transport Power Base is a dedicated high quality power supply for the UMT. It is a linear power supply with ultra low
noise. It can be used alone or in conjunction with any other power supply for better isolation. It should be hooked up to the audio
supply when used with a desktop supply.
The Dual Signature Transport Power Base is equivalent to two Signature Power bases combined. It has two independent linear power
The Dual Signature Transport Power Base is the perfect companion to the UMT. It has two linear power supplies, one for audio and
one for video.
supplies including separate transformers. It was designed specifically for the UMT. It is a recommended option.
The Diamond Transport Power Base has twice the power of the Signature is as the ultimate option for both the audio and video requirements
of the UMT. Again, it can be mixed with other supplies. All supplies MUST be exactly 12 V.
The second power connection can
be used. When power is detected on
this second input, the audio circuits
are disconnected from the first power
connector and operated off this second
supply. This is an automatic function.
The second supply becomes the
AUDIO supply and should be of the
highest quality.
Power consumption varies depending
on what drives or devices might be
plugged in the USB connections.
Normally the UMT draws up to about
5A on the first supply and about 0.5 A
on the secondary audio supply unless
a clock is installed and then a 1.5A
supply is needed.
The Diamond Transport Power base has twice the power of the Signature.

USB Connections
A USB Storage device may be attached to any of the USB inputs. These inputs
are for reading storage devices only and should not be attached to a computer,
iPod or other USB peripheral. Appropriate devices would include USB memory
sticks and USB Hard Drives.
Computer Network Connection
The UMT has significant internet exploration capabilities. Currently it supports
both Netflix and Blockbuster for instant online media streaming, as well as in- USB memory sticks and USB Hard Disc drives can
home network media sharing via My Network which is functionally equivalent
be attached.
to DLNA. Additional network applications may be added with future firmware
updates. The UMT also supports the BD-Live feature offered on some Blu-ray
Disc titles. BD-Live offers extra downloadable content and additional online interactive programs. Content available on BD-Live vary by
discs and studios, and may include additional subtitles, commentaries, movie trailers, games, or online chat. Connecting the player to the
Internet will also allow the player to obtain firmware updates via the Internet. In order to utilize the BD-Live feature or update firmware
via the Internet, the player needs to be connected to a broadband Internet connection. It is not necessary to connect to the Internet if you
do not intend to use the network streaming, BD-Live and online firmware updating functionality.
The UMT provides two network connection methods: through Ethernet cable or through the external wireless adaptor included with the
player. For the fastest and most stable network connection, we recommend using Ethernet cable whenever it is possible.
Internet connection through Ethernet cable
• Plug one end of a network cable (Category 5/5E straight Ethernet cable) into the LAN port on the back of the UMT.
• Plug the other end of the network cable into a LAN port on the broadband router or modem.
• After physically connecting the player to a broadband Internet connection, some network configuration may be required. Please refer
to the Network Setup section for details.
• Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the broadband router or modem, or contact the Internet service provider for questions
related to setting up the router or modem.
NOTE: Only connect the LAN port of the player to an Ethernet port that supports 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX. Connecting to any other
ports or jacks, such as a phone jack, can damage the player. Streaming services such as Netflix and Blockbuster may require membership
and may also be limited to service in the US only.
Internet connection through Wireless USB Adaptor
The wireless adaptor included in the UMT package has been pre-configured to work with your player. It is compatible with 802.11b/g/n
2.4GHz wireless networks.
Make sure the broadband Internet connection is available and the Wi-Fi function on your wireless router or access point has been turned
on, then plug the adaptor into one of the two USB2.0 ports available on your UMT.
After the physical connection, some network configuration is required. Please refer to the Network Setup section for details.
A 6-foot USB extension cable is also included in the package. Connect it between the USB port on the player and your wireless adaptor
if needed.
Custom Installation
External IR (Infrared Remote) Installation
The UMT features an IR IN port on its back panel. If
the player is to be installed in an equipment cabinet
where direct line-of-sight is not available for remote
control, your custom home theater installer can
purchase an external IR Remote Sensor and plug
it into the IR IN port. Place the sensor head at a
location where there is direct line-of-sight to ensure
reliable operation.
Use a 3.5mm Mono Cable to make the connection.
• When an external IR sensor is plugged in, the
original IR sensor window on the front panel
10
will be disabled.
• MSB cannot guarantee that the IR IN port will be compatible with devices that are not manufactured by MSB.
• Connecting the IR IN port to an incompatible device may result in damage to the connected device or the player.
Please contact MSB customer support if you plan to integrate the player into an IR distribution system. Customer support can provide
recommendations on how to properly connect the control signals.
RS232 Control
The UMT has an RS232 control port and can be integrated into most custom home theater control systems. Please ask your custom
installer to contact MSB for the RS232 control protocol.
REMOTE CONTROL
Changing Volume
Changing the volume on the UMT remote does nothing at all in the UMT, but if an MSB DAC is used in the system which has the volume
option installed, the UMT remote can be used to change the volume of the DAC. Ignore the volume setting on the video display. Instead
pay attention to the volume readout on the DAC.
Changing the Backlight Method
The remote control supports one of two backlight methods. By default, pressing the LIGHT button will turn on the backlight, and pressing
any other button within 10 seconds will keep the backlight on. The alternative method will activate
the backlight whenever any button is pressed; in this mode, the light will stay on for 10 seconds, and
pressing any other button will keep the backlight on. To switch between these two backlight methods,
press and hold the LIGHT button for 5 seconds.
Using the MSB DAC Remote (Default = Not Enabled)
The MSB DAC remote control can support the key features of the UMT Plus, including:
• POWER
• Number Pad 0 - 9

SETUP MENU OPTIONS
The Setup Menu of the UMT presents many setup and configuration options. For most users, the default configuration will be sufficient
and will not require any changes to the settings. However if you need to configure the player to perfectly match your home theater setup
and viewing preferences, please refer to the following sections for details about each configuration option.
Using the Setup Menu System
In many places of this guide, the player’s Setup Menu needs to
be adjusted to match your specific audio/video configuration.
When performing menu adjustments, we will use the following
terminology to indicate the location of the desired function:
Setup Menu Section > Menu Item > Selection
Setup Menu Section is the uppermost Setup Menu level. With
the UMT there are six (6) Setup Menu sections listed in the left
column of the Setup Menu screen. They are: Playback Setup,
Video Setup, Audio Format Setup, Audio Processing, Device
Setup, and Network Setup.
Menu Item is the parameter to be adjusted which appears in
the center column of the Setup Menu. Once you enter a Setup
Menu Section, the list of Menu Items and their current value
are displayed in a box.
Selection is the actual numeric or descriptive element that
represents the change being made to the selected parameter. It
is the item located to the right of its corresponding Menu Item.
A Scroll Mark appears at the top or bottom of the menu when there are more Menu Items or Selections than what can fit in a screen. You
may use the UP and DOWN ARROW buttons to scroll the display in order to access additional items.
The preceding diagram should give a good description of the various elements and their context. In this screen we could, for example,
instruct you to set the Auto Play Mode parameter to Off in the Playback Setup section. To indicate where we were, you would see the
following: Playback Setup > Auto Play Mode > Off.
NOTE: It is possible that some setup items may be grayed-out and inaccessible. This can be caused by a disc being played back or having
changed a prerequisite setup item. Please stop playback or eject the disc before trying to change these setup items. If you still cannot
14
access the setup item, please check for configuration conflicts and consistency. For example, if Video Setup > 3D Output is set to Off,
the 3D Setting menu item will be grayed-out. Setting 3D Output to On (or Auto) will enable the 3D Setting menu.
To access the player’s Setup Menu simply press the SETUP button on the remote control. Since some Setup Menu options can become
inaccessible when the player is playing a disc, it is recommended that you operate the Setup Menu when playback is fully stopped or
when there is no disc in the player.
1. Press the SETUP button on the remote control, and the TV screen displays the following:
2. Press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the section. There are 6 sections: Playback Setup, Video Setup, Audio Format Setup,
Audio Processing, Device Setup, and Network Setup. Press the ENTER button or the RIGHT ARROW button to enter the selected
section.
3. Press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the setup item to be changed, and press the ENTER or RIGHT ARROW button to
change the setting. When the scroll icon is shown at the top or bottom of the Setup Menu, it indicates that there are more menu items
that can be accessed by scrolling with the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons. For example, in the Playback Setup section, you may use
the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the “Auto Play Mode” setup item, and press the ENTER button to change the “Auto Play
Mode” setting.
4. To select a value from the list of available settings, press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons and then press the ENTER button to
confirm. For example, to select “Off” for “Auto Play Mode”, use the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to highlight the “Off” selection
and press the ENTER button.
5. To exit the SETUP menu at any time, press the SETUP button on the remote control or select Exit from the Setup Menu sections.
The settings are permanently saved when the player is turned off using either the front panel power button or the remote control. If the
AC power is interrupted before the player enters standby status, the settings will not be saved. To ensure proper saving of the SETUP
menu settings, please turn off the player and turn it back on after you make major changes to the SETUP menu options.
Playback Setup
The “Playback Setup” section is designed to configure playback preferences for various contents.
1. SACD Priority: To select which audio layer to play for SACD (Super Audio CD). The options are:
•
Multi-Channel – Play the multi-channel surround audio layer
•
Stereo – Play the 2-channel stereo audio layer
•
CD Mode – Play the CD layer of a hybrid SACD disc
2. DVD-Audio Mode: To select which portion of a DVD-Audio disc to play. The options are:
•
DVD-Audio – Play the DVD-Audio portion of the disc with high-resolution audio
•
DVD-Video – Play the DVD-Video portion of the disc with Dolby Digital or DTS audio
3. Auto Play Mode (On / Off): To select whether the player shall start playing an audio CD or SACD automatically. When auto play
mode is turn on, these discs will start playing upon insertion into the player. When auto play mode is turned off, the player will wait
for the user to start playback by pressing the PLAY button.
4. Auto Resume: Select whether disc playback will start from the previously saved point or not. This setting applies to CDs, SACDs,
DVDs and certain Blu-ray Discs.
•
Playback automatically starts from the previously saved point.
•
Off – Playback starts from the beginning.
5. Parental Control: To set parental control ratings in order to prevent minors from watching inappropriate content. This function depends
on the disc being properly rated and encoded.
•
Press the ENTER button to bring up the rating selection menu.
•
To adjust the parental control settings, you must enter the current parental control password. If you have not set a parental
control password yet, the default password is “0000”.
• The parental control menu contains the following sub-items:
• BD Ratings - Press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the rating allowed for Blu-ray Discs. “Off” means no ratings control
and all discs are allowed to play. Numbers 1 to 21 corresponds to the age limit. Discs encoded with an age limit that is equal to or
below the selected age will be allowed, and any rating above the selected age will be blocked.
•
DVD Ratings - Press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the rating to allow for DVD. The available ratings are Kid, G,
PG, PG-13, PGR, R, NC17, Adult and Off. The selected rating and below will be allowed, and any rating above will be blocked.
If “Off” is selected, all discs are allowed to play.
15
•
Area Code – Some Blu-ray Discs may have different parental control ratings for different geographical areas. At this time the
player only supports the parental control ratings used in the United States.
•
Change Password – To change the parental control password, enter a 4-digit number as the new password. Enter the new password
again to confirm. If the two entries are matching, the new password replaces the old parental control password.
6. Language: To configure language preferences. The menu contains the following sub-items:
•
Player Language – To choose the display language for the player’s Setup Menu and the on-screen display. At this time only
English is available.
•
Disc Menu Language – To choose the preferred language for displaying DVD and Blu-ray Disc menus. If a disc menu of the
selected language is available, that menu will be shown instead of the default disc menu.
•
Audio Language – To choose the preferred audio language for DVD and Blu-ray Discs. If an audio track of the selected language
is available on the disc, the audio track will be played back.
•
Subtitle Language – To choose the preferred subtitle language for DVD. If a subtitle of the selected language is available, it will
be displayed. When “Auto” is selected, the subtitle display is decided by the disc.
NOTE: If your preferred language is not listed in the Audio, Subtitle or Disc Menu options, select “Other” and enter the Language Code
found in this manual.
Video Setup
The “Video Setup” section of the Setup Menu system
allows you to configure video output options. MSB
has set the video setup to what we think are the best
settings, assuming you have a wide-screen display
with HDMI inputs. With any other display options
you will need to make the adjustments below. The
menu items in this section are:
1. Picture Adjustment: To adjust picture control
parameters. The UMT provides a wide array
of picture controls. Please refer to the Picture
Adjustment section of this manual for details of
each control.
2. Dual HDMI Output: Allows you to select the
output mode when both HDMI Output ports are
in use. If only one HDMI Output is active, this
selection will not apply.
• Split A/V (recommended) – Use HDMI 1 OUT as the dedicated video output port and HDMI 2 OUT as the dedicated audio
output port. This setting will ensure the best possible picture quality and the highest possible audio resolution.
• Dual Display – Send digital audio and video signals to both HDMI Outputs simultaneously. This setting is only recommended
when two HDMI displays are required, since the surround sound audio signal may be down-mixed to stereo and the original
audio quality may be lost.
NOTE: The player can automatically adjust the resolution of digital audio and video signals depending on the capabilities of the connected
television and receivers. For HDMI 1 OUT, the dedicated QDEO video processor will be used unless Source Direct is selected, in which
case QDEO is bypassed. In Split A/V mode, HDMI 1 OUT has video only with no audio, but HDMI 2 OUT will have audio and possibly
video. This is because HDMI embeds audio into video data so there must always be a video signal, even if it’s only a blank screen, to
carry audio through.
3. 3D Mode: To choose the video output mode for available 3D contents at the HDMI output ports.
The options are:
• Auto – Output 3D if supported both by the disc content and the display. The player automatically checks for the existence of
3D content on the disc and the 3D compatibility of the TV or projector. If both are qualified, the player sends 3D video from
its HDMI output terminals, otherwise only 2D video is sent out. Active shutter 3D-compatible glasses (which are not sold by
MSB) are required to enjoy the 3D movie on your TV.
• Off – Always output 2D video format, even when 3D video exists on the disc. This guarantees the video quality if your TV is
not 3D compatible, or some necessary part (such as the 3D glasses) is missing.
• Forced – Always output 3D video format for 3D Blu-ray Discs. You may experience a black screen (no video output) if your
TV is not 3D compatible.
4. 3D Setting: Adjusts the playback settings for better 3D visual quality.
16
• Blank HDMI 2 (Yes/No) – Allows you to force HDMI 2 OUT to output a blank 2D screen when HDMI 1 OUT outputs 3D
video. During 3D movie playback, when HDMI 1 is connected to a 3D display and HDMI 2 is connected to a non-3D receiver
which is in turn connected to the same 3D display, you may encounter an issue where there is no audio coming from the receiver.
Setting this option to “Yes” can resolve this issue.
• 2D->3D Depth – Adjusts the 3D depth perception when performing 2D-to-3D conversion (also called “simulated 3D”). The
default value is 8.
• 3D TV Size – Allows you to enter the diagonal screen size of the 3D HDTV. This option applies to 3D mode only. Use the
number buttons on the remote to enter the actual diagonal size of the TV screen, and then press the ENTER button to confirm.
The default value is 46 inches.
5. TV Aspect Ratio: To set the aspect ratio of the player’s output image. The options are:
• 16:9 Wide – Choose this when the display is widescreen 16:9. 16:9 materials will be displayed in its native aspect ratio, and 4:3
materials will be stretched horizontally.
• 16:9 Wide/Auto – Choose this when the display is widescreen 16:9. 16:9 materials will be displayed in its native aspect ratio,
and 4:3 materials will be displayed with black borders on both sides in order to maintain the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
6. TV System: To choose the output video system or broadcast standard (PAL/NTSC) to match the type of TV. The options are:
• NTSC (default) – When playing NTSC-encoded discs, no system conversion is performed. PAL-encoded contents are converted
to NTSC output. Blu-ray Discs encoded with 24Hz frame rate are converted to 60Hz frame rate if neither 1080p24 Output nor
Source Direct output resolution is enabled.
• PAL – When playing PAL-encoded discs, no system conversion is performed. NTSC encoded contents are converted to PAL
output. Blu-ray Discs encoded with 24Hz frame rate are converted to 50Hz frame rate if neither 1080p24 Output nor Source
Direct output resolution is enabled.
• Multi-system – No system conversion is performed. The output video system is the same as that encoded on the disc. Blu-ray
Discs encoded with 24Hz frame rate are converted to 60Hz frame rate if neither 1080p24 Output nor Source Direct output
resolution is enabled. Requires a TV that supports both NTSC and PAL systems.
NOTE: DO NOT select “Multi-system” if your TV does not support both NTSC and PAL systems. The TV display may become a black
screen upon inserting a disc encoded in a different system than your TV supports. Should this happen, you can press the OPEN button
to eject the disc tray, and then use the Setup Menu to correct the “TV System” setting.
7. Output Resolution: To choose the output resolution that best matches your television’s native resolution. For a detailed description on
how to choose a proper output resolution, please refer to the Select the Best Output Resolution section of this manual.
8. 1080p24 Output: To set 1080p 24Hz output options. This option only applies to the HDMI output at 1080p resolution. Many Blu-ray
Discs that originated from theatrical movies are encoded using 24Hz frame rate, the same number of frames per second as the original
theatrical film. If the TV properly supports 1080p 24Hz, smoother motion can be achieved by enabling 1080p24 Output for such discs.
The available options are:
• Auto – Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be output as 1080p 24Hz if the TV informs the player that it can support the
1080p24 signal.
• On – Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be output as 1080p 24Hz without regard to whether the TV can support the 1080p24
signal or not. This is useful if the TV can actually support 1080p24 but does not properly state its capability. Please note that if
the TV cannot support 1080p24, selecting this option will result in no video.
• Off (default) – Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be converted to 60Hz (NTSC) or 50Hz (PAL)
9. DVD 24p Conversion: Allows you to enable 24Hz frame rate conversion for DVD. This option is only available when 1080p24 Output
is enabled (set to Auto or On). Many DVDs that originate from theatrical movies are encoded with a technique called “3:2 telecine” in
order to convert the 24 frames per second film to 60Hz video signal. The player can convert the 60Hz video signal back to 24 frames
per second film and output as 1080P/24Hz. Smoother motion may be achieved by enabling this option, if both the TV and the DVD disc
meet the conversion conditions. The available options are:
• On – Converts DVD to 24Hz frame rate when possible. Remember that motion errors may be observed if the DVD is not suitable
for such conversion.
• Off (default) – Does not convert DVD to 24Hz frame rate.
10. HDMI Options: To configure video options that apply only to the HDMI output. This item contains a sub-menu with multiple
configuration options. Please refer to the HDMI Options section of this manual for details of each option.
11. Display Options: To configure the options for displaying on-screen information. The following display options are available:
• Subtitle Shift – To set the display position for subtitles. When the “Subtitle Shift” is set at 0 (default), subtitles are displayed at the
original position as specified on the disc. When it is set at a value between 1 and 5, subtitles are shifted up. When it is set at a value
between -1 and -5, subtitles are shifted down. This feature is helpful for customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant Image Height” video
projection system. Subtitles can be shifted to the active video area so they do not get cut off.
17
• OSD Position – To set the display position for the on-screen display (OSD). When the “OSD Position” is set at 0, the OSD is shown
at the top and bottom of the video screen. When it is set at a value between 1 and 5, the OSD is shifted towards the center of the
video screen. Similar to the subtitle shift setting above, the “OSD Position” feature is helpful for customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant
Image Height” video projection system.
• OSD Mode – To select how long the on-screen display information, such as elapsed or remaining time, stays on the TV screen. The
available options are:
• Normal – On-screen display information stays on the TV screen until the user cancels it.
• Minimal – On-screen display information shows on the TV screen for a few seconds and then disappears. The front panel display
still maintains the selected display information.
• Remaining – On-screen display information stays on the TV screen until the user cancels it. By default displays remaining time
instead of elapsed time.
• Angle Mark (on/off) – To turn on/off the display of an angle mark when a DVD or Blu-ray Disc with multiple available angles is
played. Keeping the angle mark off avoids distraction from normal movie watching.
• Screen Saver – To turn on/off the screen saver function. The screen saver is designed to minimize burn-in concerns for plasma and
CRT display devices. The available options are:
• On – After about 3 minutes of inactivity, the player will show an animated OPPO logo moving on a black background. This allows
most areas of the screen to rest and gives all areas an equal opportunity to refresh.
• Off – The screen saver will not be activated. Use this option if your TV does not have a burn-in issue.
• Energy Saver – Video output will be turned off after 3 minutes of inactivity. Many projectors and LCD TVs will go into a standby
or sleep mode and turn off their projection lamp or LCD backlight lamp, thus saving energy and prolonging the lamp life. When
you press any button on the UMT remote control or the player’s front panel, the screen saver will be canceled and video output
will be restored. If your TV is already in standby or sleep mode, you may need to wake up the TV by pressing a button on its
remote or control panel.
Detailed Video Setup
Picture Adjustment
Picture Adjustment is a special section of the Video Setup menu. It allows you to fine tune many picture control parameters in order to
achieve optimal picture quality. To enter the Picture Adjustment menu, press the SETUP button on the remote control to enter the player’s
Setup Menu and choose Video Setup > Picture Adjustment and select the video output to be adjusted:
Use the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW to select the video output, and press the ENTER button to bring up the Picture Adjustment menu.
Depending on the selected video output, the Picture Adjustment menu may be slightly different:
To change a picture adjustment parameter, use the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to highlight the parameter, and use the LEFT/RIGHT
ARROW buttons to change its value.
To aid in the adjustment of picture control parameters, the picture adjustment
menu will be reduced to only show the parameter being adjusted once you
press the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW buttons (except the Picture Mode, which
you will directly see the mode name switches between Mode 1, 2 and 3,
and all the other parameters are adjusted automatically to the stored value).
The reduced menu will be positioned near the bottom of the screen.
You can continue adjusting the current parameter by pressing the LEFT/
RIGHT ARROW buttons. To select another parameter, press the UP/
DOWN ARROW buttons. Press the ENTER button to return to the
main Picture Adjustment menu.
To exit the Picture Adjustment menu and return to the Setup Menu, either select Exit in the menu, or press the RETURN button.
The following picture adjustment controls are available for both HDMI 1 and 2:
1. Picture Mode: To use the customized picture mode saved by you. The UMT allows you to save up to three (3) customized modes.
Press the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW buttons to switch the mode and all parameters will be automatically adjusted to their stored values.
Changes to the current parameter values will be stored automatically when you exit the Picture Adjustment screen or switch to another
Picture Mode.
2. Brightness: To adjust the brightness (black level) of the video output.
18
3. Contrast: To adjust the contrast (white level) of the video output.
NOTE: Proper brightness and contrast settings are necessary for a quality video output. If you do not have the correct black and white
levels, your images can appear washed out or can lose detail in shadows when watching darker scenes. Televisions have brightness (black
level) and contrast (white level) controls; however it may require a combination of tweaking both the player and your television to get
the optimal result. We recommend using a calibration disc such as the Spears & Munsil™ High Definition Benchmark Blu-ray Edition or
Digital Video Essentials HD Basics as aids for adjusting. First adjust the television’s picture controls for the best possible picture. Once
that is done, try changing the player’s settings to further refine the picture to the optimal result.
4. Hue: To adjust the hue (tint) of the video output.
5. Saturation: To adjust the saturation (color intensity level) of the video output.
6. Noise Reduction: Allows you to select whether the player will apply video noise reduction processing. The default is level 0, which turns
off noise reduction. When this level is increased, the player adjusts the picture quality by applying video noise reduction. The higher the
level, the more aggressively noise reduction functions are applied. Remember that excessive noise reduction may cause a loss of detail. We
recommend using the noise reduction function only when you encounter poorly encoded or compressed video that has apparent noise artifacts.
Noise reduction is handled by the video decoder, and this setting applies to both HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 outputs. As a result, the
adjustment made here will be reflected on HDMI 2 as well..
The following picture adjustment controls are only available for HDMI 1 video output:
7. Darbee Mode: Allows you to select the appropriate Darbee Visual Presence Viewing Modes. Depending on the video content, the
available options are:
•
Hi-Def – This mode works with Blu-ray and other high quality video sources (720p, 1080i, or 1080p). It preserves the original
look of the video while imparting startling clarity and depth, providing the video with an elegant and refined feeling of enhanced
realism.
•
Gaming – This mode works with video games, Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) for movies and other clean video sources.
It imparts a stronger degree of depth, separation and clarity that video game enthusiasts appreciate. This mode is recommended
when you connect a video game console via the HDMI input of the player.
•
Full Pop – This mode works with low-resolution or low-quality video sources. It imparts the strongest sense of depth and
realism, but you may notice some possible visible artifacts with text.
•
Off (default) – The Darbee Visual Presence is completely bypassed and the input video is not processed. In this mode, the Darbee
Level and Demo Mode (Darbee) cannot be adjusted.
8. Darbee Level: Allows you to adjust the level of Darbee Visual Presence processing to whichever level is best for your TV and viewing
conditions, according to your personal preference. You may use the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW buttons on the remote to decrease/
increase the level. The level can be adjusted in 5% steps and within the range of 0 to 120%. A level of 0 is bypassed, the same as
having Darbee Mode “Off ”.
9. Demo Mode (Darbee Visual Presence): Allows you to enable a special split-screen mode for the demonstration of Darbee Visual
Presence video processing technology. It can also be used as an aid for setting picture adjustments for Darbee Mode and Darbee
Level. It should NOT be used for normal movie watching. The available options are:
•
Split Screen – The video screen will be split in half. The left side demonstrates the result of the Darbee Visual Presence video
processing, and the right side shows video without the help of Darbee Visual Presence processing.
•
Swipe Screen – This mode is similar to Split Screen mode, except the divider bar will move continuously from left to right
indicating which portion of the video is being processed.
•
Off (default) – Normal viewing mode.
NOTE: The DARBEE button on the remote control provides direct access to the Darbee Adjustment Menu. In the menu, you can use the
UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the Darbee Mode, the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW buttons to adjust the Darbee Level, and the Color
buttons (RED, GREEN, BLUE) to switch Darbee Demo Modes.
10. Detail Enhancement: Allows you to set the sharpness level for video output (also called General Sharpening). The enhancement
level can be set between -16 and +16, with the default level being 0. Level 0 turns off detail enhancement. The negative levels may
be used to reduce or eliminate overly sharpened video, though the picture may become soft. The positive levels increase fine detail.
The higher the level, the sharper the video details are. However, too high of a sharpness level may cause white line etching around
objects. Detail Enhancement can be used together with Edge Enhancement to achieve an optimal result.
11. Edge Enhancement: Allows you to set the sharpness of object edges in the video (also called Edge-Qualified Sharpening). The
enhancement level can be set between -16 and +16, with the default level being 0. Level 0 turns off edge enhancement. The negative
levels reduce or eliminate overly enhanced edges. The positive levels sharpen object edges. Edge Enhancement can be used together
with Detail Enhancement to achieve an optimal result.
NOTE: Detail Enhancement and Edge Enhancement produce similar results, but there are subtle differences. Detail Enhancement works
best when the source material is “clean” and free from noise. Edge Enhancement works well for less pristine sources. It produces a
19
sharpening effect without making noise more visible.
The Detail Enhancement and Edge Enhancement methods are additive, so the results of both sharpening methods are combined. An
example of this would be to use general sharpening to increase detail in the entire image. If object edges are over enhanced, then negative
edge-qualified sharpening is applied to reduce the over enhancement of the edges. If general sharpening is applied to a noisy image, the
increase in noise may be objectionable. In that case, positive edge-qualified sharpening should be applied to sharpen object edges, but
not increase the noise level.
If the source content is properly produced, we generally recommend leaving these controls at level 0.
12. Video Smoothing: Allows you to remove the rough edges in an image, such as the staircase appearance of a diagonal line drawn on
the screen (called the “stair stepped effect”). This smoothing technology provided by the VRS ClearView video processor creates
the effect of a high-resolution image without softening the entire image. The video smoothing level can be set between 0 and +4.
The default is level 0, which turns off video smoothing.
13. Demo Mode (VRS ClearView): Allows you to enable a special split-screen mode for the demonstration of VRS ClearView video
processing technology. It can also be used as an aid for setting picture adjustments for Detail Enhancement, Edge Enhancement,
Video Smoothing and Noise Reduction. It should NOT be used for normal movie watching. The available options are:
•
On – The video screen will be split in half. The left side demonstrates the result of the VRS Clear View video processing, and
the right side shows video without the help of VRS ClearView processing.
•
Off (default) – Normal viewing mode.
The following picture adjustment control is only available for the HDMI 2 video output:
14. Sharpness: Allows you to set the sharpness level for video output. Sharpness is a video processing function that can control the image
sharpness but at the same time may cause unwanted artifacts. For HDMI 2 output, the sharpness level can be set between 0 and +2,
with the default level being 0. The higher the level, the sharper the video details are. However, too high a sharpness level may cause
white lines or halo-like effects to appear around objects.
HDMI Options
HDMI Options are a sub-menu of the Video Setup menu. It allows you to configure some video settings that are unique to the HDMI
output. To enter this sub-menu, select “HDMI Options” from the Video Setup menu. To exit this sub-menu, press the RETURN button
or the LEFT arrow key. The following HDMI options are available:
1. Color Space (HDMI 1) – To select the color space for the HDMI 1 output. The available options are:
•
Auto (Recommended) – The player checks with the display device to automatically determine what color space to use. If the
display device supports YCbCr 4:4:4, then it will be used to avoid extra color space conversion.
•
RGB Video Level – The HDMI output uses RGB color space and normal signal range suitable for video displays.
•
RGB PC Level – The HDMI output uses RGB color space and expands the signal range. The expanded signal range is suitable
for personal computer (PC) displays. Some TVs are designed to be used as a PC monitor, and expect signal in expanded RGB
range when the DVI input is selected. For these displays if the video signal uses the normal RGB range, the black-white contrast
will be reduced. You can set the player to use the RGB PC Level output and restore proper contrast.
•
YCbCr 4:4:4 – The HDMI output uses YCbCr 4:4:4 color space.
•
YCbCr 4:2:2 – The HDMI output uses YCbCr 4:2:2 color space. Generally this is the color space that is closest to the color
space encoded on the discs. (All discs are encoded in YCbCr 4:2:0 color space, and the video decoder decodes it into YCbCr
4:2:2.)
2. Color Space (HDMI 2) – To select the color space for the HDMI 2 output. The available options are the same as those for Color
Space (HDMI 1).
3. Deep Color (HDMI 1) – To select the Deep Color mode for the HDMI 1 output. Deep Color is an OPTION for some TVs or projectors
that feature HDMI v1.3 or higher input. Normally, each pixel of the video image is transmitted using 24-bit data (8-bit per channel
for R, G, B or Y, Cb, Cr). If Deep Color is supported, each pixel of the video image can be transmitted using 30-bit (10-bit per
channel) or 36-bit (12-bit per channel) data. The increased bit depth should result in smoother color transitions and better gradients.
The available options are:
•
36 Bits – Use the 36-bit per pixel Deep Color mode.
•
30 Bits (Dithered) – Use the 30-bit per pixel Deep Color mode with dithering technique.
•
30 Bits – Use the 30-bit per pixel Deep Color mode.
•
Off (Dithered) –Do not use Deep Color, but apply the dithering technique.
•
Off (default) – Do not use Deep Color.
4. Deep Color (HDMI 2) – To select the Deep Color mode for the HDMI 2 output. The available options are the same as those for
HDMI Deep Color (HDMI 1).
20
NOTE: Since the Deep Color feature is OPTIONAL and may not be supported by all TVs, enabling Deep Color while connected to
a TV without this feature may result in no effect or no video. At this time, no disc is encoded with Deep Color. Enabling Deep Color
will not magically make colors richer, but will help preserve the maximum precision as a result of video processing and picture control
adjustment. Dithering is a technique to improve the image color depth with limited color quantization.
Audio Format Setup
The “Audio Format Setup” section of the
Setup Menu system allows you to configure
preferences for audio output formats. As the
UMT is a transport capable of outputting the
highest quality audio, the user is cautioned
against changing any of these menu items.
The menu items in this section are:
1. Secondary Audio: To set the Secondary
Audio Program mixing option. Some
Blu-ray Discs contain a secondary
audio and video program, such as the
director’s commentary. Some Bluray
Discs have a sound effect when you
make menu choices. This Setup Menu
item allows you to decide whether to
mix the Secondary Audio Program and
menu clicking sound into the primary
audio. The options are:
•
On – The Secondary Audio Program
and menu clicking sound are mixed
into the primary audio. Usually this
will cause the primary audio volume to be slightly reduced and should be avoided.
•
Off – The Secondary Audio Program and menu clicking sound are not mixed into the primary audio and you cannot hear the
secondary audio or menu clicking sound. This setting preserves the highest possible audio quality for the primary audio.
2. HDMI Audio: To select digital audio output format from the HDMI port. The options are:
•
Auto (default) – The player checks with the device connecting to HDMI output to automatically determine which audio format to
use.
•
LPCM – Digital audio output via HDMI will be multi-channel Linear PCM format. When this option is selected, compressed audio
bit streams will be decoded by the player. This setting is recommended when connecting the HDMI output directly to a TV or to a
receiver without advanced audio decoding capabilities. This process bypasses the MSB processing.
•
Bitstream – Digital audio output via HDMI will be in bitstream format. This option is recommended when connecting the HDMI
output to an A/V receiver or processor that supports advanced audio decoding, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
•
Off – No digital audio output via HDMI. This is recommended.
NOTE If you use HDMI to connect audio to an HDMI A/V receiver or audio processor, it is important that you choose 720p or higher
HDMI output resolution when playing high resolution audio content (DVD-Audio, SACD, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio).
According to the HDMI specification, the bandwidth available for audio is proportional to the total bandwidth used by video. At 480p/576p
resolution, the HDMI specification can only support 2 channels of audio with high sample rate (up to 192kHz), or 8 channels of audio
with standard sample rate (up to 48kHz). If you play high resolution audio content at the 480p/576p resolution, you may get reduced
audio resolution, incomplete audio channels, or even no audio/video output at all. Choosing a higher output resolution such as 720p or
above allows enough bandwidth for all high sample rate audio channels.
3. Coaxial/Optical Surround Output: To set the output format for the Surround coaxial/optical digital audio output for use with Dolby
Digital and DTS-compatible receivers. The options are:
•
LPCM – Forces down-mixed 2-channel digital audio output. This option should NOT be selected. The UMT digital outputs
always output LPCM. This option is for the coaxial and optical surround output only.
•
Bitstream – Passes audio as compressed bitstream format to the receiver/amplifier. Choose this setting if your receiver/amplifier
is capable of decoding Dolby Digital and/or DTS. This output will work but bypasses the MSB processing and should only be
used for movies.
4. LPCM Rate Limit: This menu item does NOT change the sample rate of the digital audio outputs.
NOTE: Output sample rate is set using the small toggle switch on the rear of the unit only when upsampling is enabled.
21
5. SACD Output: To select audio output format for SACD. The options are:
•
PCM – DO NOT SELECT THIS OPTION.
•
DSD – SACD DSD data is output over HDMI without any conversion. For the digital audio outputs, DSD data is processed by
the internal MSB processor to obtain the highest possible digital audio. The S/PDIF outputs 172.4 kHz 24 bit digital audio but
the MSB Network outputs the full resolution 32 bit output.
Note: Due to a hardware limitation, DSD output is only available from the HDMI 2 OUT port.
6. HDCD Decoding: To set the audio decoding option for HDCD (High Definition Compatible Digital) discs. The options are:
•
On – HDCD is decoded with the idea of an expanded the dynamic range but with the resolution of the MSB DAC this is a step down
in the UMT.
•
Off – HDCD is treated as a regular CD. This is the only option for the highest quality audio output. Unfortunately HDCD decoders
are quite dated and when enabled, actually process and reduce the performance of all music played. Best to leave it OFF.
Blu-ray Audio Playback
Blu-ray Discs may contain many types of audio signal formats, some of which are high resolution types such as Dolby TrueHD and
DTS-HD Master Audio. Blu-ray Discs also have many optional audio components such as the Secondary Audio Program and menu
clicking sound. The UMT is specifically set up to be either a 2 channel or multichannel transport. Multichannel formats are processed
and downmixed to two channel.
Recommended Audio Format Options
Depending on your specific audio system, the audio format options of the UMT may need to be adjusted to match your configuration.
NOTE: In all cases the menu settings should be left the same, as received or as reset according to the RESET TO FACTORY STANDARD
section. Do not attempt to make any audio changes using the menu options.
NOTE: The default configuration of this UMT is STEREO. Do NOT attempt to adjust multi-channel features in this mode. When set
to the MULTICHANNEL mode, the UMT surround controls can be successfully used.
Multichannel Audio Processing Setup
The “Audio Processing Setup” section of the Setup Menu system allows you to configure how the player will process audio signals
before sending them to the output. This ONLY impacts the playback of multichannel sources. None of the settings have any impact on
2 channels sources such as CDs.
Speaker Configuration
In the Speaker Configuration menu you can configure speaker settings such as down-mix mode, number of speakers, their distance, size
and trim level. The Speaker Configuration menu shows an illustration of the speaker placements to assist you on properly configuring
the speaker parameters. Many of these settings apply to the UMT in the MultiChannel mode and should not be adjusted when in the 2
channel mode.
Upon entering this menu, the cursor is positioned on the front left speaker. You may use the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW buttons to move
the cursor. The RIGHT ARROW button moves the cursor in clockwise sequence, and the LEFT ARROW button moves the cursor in
counterclockwise sequence. When the cursor is over the “Down Mix”, “Test Tone” or “Exit” options, you can also use the UP/DOWN
ARROW button to highlight these options.
Down Mix Mode
In the Stereo Mode, the down mixing is automatic so please do not change
but leave set to 7.1 Ch. In Multichannel Mode, Center defaults OFF. If you
want the center channel you must turn it on.
Speaker Settings
For each speaker in the home theater system, you can set its size, distance
and trim level. Again, in the Stereo Mode, all speaker sizes should be left
large and no trim levels should be changed. Delay for the center channel
may be adjusted as the center channel is downmixed into the fronts. The
delay settings will adjust the center channel in relation to the fronts. It should
match the front channels.
To configure a speaker, use the LEFT/RIGHT ARROW buttons to move the
cursor to highlight the speaker and press the ENTER button. The Speaker
Settings menu on the right side of the screen will be activated. In the Speaker
Settings menu, use the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select a parameter, and then press the ENTER button to change it. To exit the
Speaker Settings menu and return to the Speaker Configuration illustration, press the LEFT ARROW button or select the “Exit” option.
22
You can also move on to configure the next speaker by selecting the “Next
Speaker” option.
1. Size: Please set all speakers to LARGE.
NOTE The front, surround and surround back speakers are configured as
pairs. Changes to the size of one speaker will automatically change the
other speaker of the pair.
2. Distance: The speaker distance parameters set delay control for the
corresponding audio channel. The delay is to compensate for the audio
propagation time difference caused by the placement of speakers.
Speaker distance delay is only applied if the player is decoding multichannel audio. Since the delay is calculated based on the distance
difference from each speaker to the listener’s position, it is important to
set the distance for the front speakers first and then the other speakers.
Any time you change the distance of the front speakers, the distance
of the other speakers will be automatically adjusted to maintain the same distance difference.
Because the Center is phantom, it should be set to the same distance as the fronts. The front distance can be adjusted to match the
video delay, which varies among displays.
3. Trim Level: The trim level should not be adjusted.
Other Audio Processing Settings
In addition to Speaker Configuration, Crossover Frequency and Dynamic
Range Control are audio processing settings that can be configured:
1. Crossover Frequency: Not relevant in this case as speakers are set to
LARGE.
2. Dynamic Range Control: DRC can smooth out the sound by reducing
the peaks and boasting the valleys. It would typically be used with
poorly produced TV shows were the voices are drowned out by the
background sounds. Enabling DRC may make low level audio more
audible during low-level listening. This should NEVER be used for
MUSIC! The available options are:
•
Auto – Play at the dynamic range specified by the disc. This option
applies to Blu-ray Discs only. For other disc types no dynamic
range compression is applied.
• On – Turn on dynamic range compression.
• Off – Turn off dynamic range compression.
3. Output Volume: Leave on FIXED.
23
Device Setup
The “Device Setup” section of the Setup
Menu system allows you to configure
additional player options related to the
hardware and control functions. The menu
items in this section are:
1. Firmware Information: To display the
currently installed OPPO firmware
version.
2. Firmware Upgrade: Now this can
be a little bit confusing. There are
two sets of firmware in the UMT.
MSB has based our transport on the
OPPO 103 player and the firmware
is deliberately compatible so you can
get updates from OPPO as soon as
they are available. There is also MSB
firmware in the UMT. Update files are
available from the MSB web site.
3. OPPO Firmware Upgrade Procedure:
This operation is only available when the playback is completely stopped or when there is no disc loaded. The firmware is the system
software that controls the features and functions of the player. Since the Blu-ray Disc specifications are new and evolving, it is possible
that a Blu-ray disc manufactured after the player was manufactured uses certain new features of the Blu-ray Disc specifications.
To ensure the best possible viewing experience, the player may need a firmware update from time to time. Please visit the OPPO
Digital web site www.oppodigital.com to check for firmware updates and instructions on installing the updates. There are three ways
to upgrade the player’s firmware. The options are:
•
Via USB – You may download the firmware files from the OPPO Digital web site to a USB drive and then use the USB drive
to upgrade the player. Please follow the instructions on the firmware download web page.
•
Via Disc – You may request a firmware upgrade disc from OPPO Digital or download a disc image from the OPPO Digital web
site and burn an upgrade disc. Please follow the instructions that come with the upgrade disc.
•
Via Network – If the player has a working Internet connection (see page 18 and 75), you may upgrade the player directly over
the Internet. Please follow the instructions on your TV screen.
Note: It is very important that after you do a Oppo Firmware upgrade that you Reset to Factory Settings following the instructions in this
manual. The firmware update leaves all settings in an unknown position. You must update.
4. MSB Firmware Upgrade Procedure: This operation is only available when the playback is completely stopped or when there is no
disc loaded. The firmware is the system software that controls the digital audio processing of the player. To ensure the best possible
listening experience, the player may need a firmware update from time to time. Please visit the MSB Technology web site www.
msbtech.com to check for firmware updates and instructions on installing the updates. There are two ways to upgrade the player’s
firmware. You can check the current firmware version by counting how many times the clock link LED blinks RED when turning
the UMT on from the standby mode. Check the web site for the current version. The options for upgrade are:
•
Via USB – You may download the firmware files from the MSB web site to a USB drive and then use the USB drive to upgrade
the player. Please follow the instructions on the firmware download web page.
•
Via Disc – You may request a firmware upgrade disc from MSB or download a disc image from the MSB web site and burn an
upgrade disc. Please follow the instructions that come with the upgrade disc.
5. OPPO Firmware Notification: To set whether the player should automatically check if new firmware versions are available on the
Internet server and notify the user about new firmware. The options are:
•
On – Check for new firmware version automatically and notify the user about new firmware. Requires a working network
connection.
•
Off – Do not check for new firmware version automatically.
6. Remote Control Code: The UMT can respond to one of 4 sets of remote control codes. The default is “Code 1”. If you have other
products placed close to the UMT, the other products may respond to the UMT remote control. In this case you can select a different
remote code to avoid conflicts. The available codes are:
•
Code 1 – UMT remote code set 1. This is the default remote code.
•
Code 2 – UMT remote code set 2. Use this code if you have other products placed close to the UMT that share the same codes.
•
Code 3 – UMT remote code set 3. Use this code if Code 2 did not solve your problem.
24
•
Alt. Code – Alternative remote code. The alternative remote control code enables users to program their universal remote controls
that come with TV, projector or A/V receiver to operate the UMT. If the universal remote control has a DVD player control
function, please program it with the code for TOSHIBA, PHILIPS, MAGNAVOX, MARANTZ or ZENITH DVD players. Since
each brand of remote control may have several sets of codes, you may need to try several times using different codes to find a
working code. If you have selected a new remote code, you must set the remote control handset to use the same code. Please
refer to the Changing the Remote Code section of this manual for details. If you have selected “Alt. Code”, the supplied handset
will not operate the player, and you must use a universal remote control with the properly configured code set.
7. HDMI CEC: To set HDMI Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) mode. CEC is an optional HDMI feature that enables convenient
remote control and automatic setup of consumer electronics over the HDMI connection. The remote control function allows you to
use a single remote handset to operate multiple devices connected via HDMI. For example, you may use the TV remote to control
playback of the Blu-ray Disc player. The automatic setup function can automatically turn on the TV and change to the proper input
when you start playing a disc in the Blu-ray Disc player. It can also turn off the player automatically when you turn off the TV. The
implementation and compatibility of this feature varies by device manufacturer. Each may only implement part of the features or add
their own proprietary functions. The manufacturer-specific implementation of the HDMI CEC function is often given a proprietary
name of “…Link” or “…Sync”. The UMT provides three HDMI CEC function modes for each of its HDMI outputs:
•
HDMI 1 – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 1 output. Use this mode if your other devices are compatible with the player.
•
HDMI 1 (Limited) – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 1 output, but the BDP-93 will only respond to playback control commands.
It will not respond or issue power on/off and input selection commands. Use this mode if you do not want the automatic setup
function to turn on/off your devices.
•
HDMI 2 – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 2 output. Similar to HDMI 1.
•
HDMI 2 (Limited) – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 2 output, but the BDP-93 will only respond to playback control commands.
Similar to HDMI 1 (Limited).
•
Off (default) – HDMI CEC feature is turned off on both HDMI output terminals. The player will not respond to HDMI CEC
commands from other devices, nor will it setup other devices automatically.
8. Standby Mode: Allows you to choose between two standby modes. In Energy Efficient mode, the player consumes a minimal amount
of power but takes more time to get ready for operation after being turned on. In Quick Start mode, the player can start up significantly
faster at the expense of additional power consumption during the standby period.
•
Energy Efficient (default) – The player will take slightly longer to start up, but will consume less power in standby mode. This
mode is recommended for regular use.
•
Quick Start – The player takes less time to start up but consumes more power in standby mode. This mode is recommended if
the player is used frequently, or if you need to supply power to a device connected to the player’s MHL port during the standby
period.
9. Sleep Timer: Allows you to specify the amount of time before the player automatically turns itself off.
•
Off (default) – The player will not turn itself off automatically.
•
30/45/60/90/120 Min – These are the available time increments (in minutes) you can choose before the player automatically shuts
itself down. You can press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons and the ENTER button to select the desired time. Once selected,
the remaining minutes will be displayed to the right of the “Sleep Timer” option.
10. Front Panel Brightness: Allows you to control the display intensity of the front panel Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) information
window and the OPEN/CLOSE tray button backlight. If you feel that the display becomes a distraction to your enjoyment of the
video, this option allows you to dim it or turn it off.
•
Standard (default) - The VFD windows are at full brightness.
•
Dim - The VFD windows are at reduced brightness.
•
Off – The VFD windows are turned off. In this mode the display will resume momentarily if there is any user operation.
11. Cache Media Info (On/Off) : Allows you to set the online media file information caching option. This option can provide a better
media file navigation experience by caching some of the media information in an “OPPO_Media_Info” folder created on the root
directory of the connected USB drive.
•
On (recommended) – The downloaded media information will be saved on the same USB hard disk or thumb drive as the media
files for faster navigation.
•
Off – The downloaded media file information is not saved. Retrieving the media information from the internet may take some
time and could slow down media file navigation.
12. Persistent Storage: To manage the persistent storage for BD-Video contents. The persistent storage is a data storage area that holds
additional contents for BonusView and BD-Live features. The data will be kept even if you turn off the player. The following persistent
storage management options are available:
•
Storage Device – To select which storage device should be used as the persistent storage. The UMT preserves about 1GB of
25
internal flash memory that can be used for persistent storage. There are also two USB ports on the player that can accept a USB
drive to be used as the persistent storage. The choices are:
•
Internal Flash – Use the internal flash memory for persistent storage.
•
USB Drive – Use a USB drive for persistent storage. To meet the specification for BD-Live, a USB flash drive of 1GB or larger
is required. A USB hard drive is not recommended.
NOTE: The new storage device choice becomes effective only after the player is restarted. Please make sure that you turn off the player
and then turn it back on after changing the “Storage Device” option.
•
Space Used – Displays the used space of the persistent storage. If too much space is used and the available space becomes too
low, some Blu-ray Discs may not play properly.
•
Erase Persistent Storage – Erases the BD-Video data from the persistent storage or initializes a USB drive so it can be used for
persistent storage.
13. Netflix: To de-activate your Netflix account. The available options are:
•
Netflix ESN – To display the Netflix ESN (Electronic Serial Number) for your player.
•
De-activate Netflix – To de-activate the access to your Netflix account from your player. Once de-activated, you have to go to
the Home menu, enter the Netflix option and go through the activation procedure again to be able to access Netflix from your
player.
14. VUDU: Allows you to de-activate your VUDU HD Movies account.
15. Reset Factory Defaults: To reset all settings to the factory default value. This operation also set BD-Live Network Access to be Off
and performs Erase Persistent Storage. However, the remote control code will not be reset. This operation is only available when
the playback is completely stopped or when there is no disc loaded.
NOTE: If all goes wrong do a reset to factory settings, Then go to SETUP: and make the following changes:
1. PLAYBACK SETUP: SACD PRIORITY and select STEREO.
2. AUDIO FORMAT SETUP: HDMI AUDIO: OFF
3. AUDIO PROCESSING: SPEAKER CONFIGURATION: and set CENTER to OFF.
26

code and you will need to input it into the software
control panel of your wireless router or access point.
Please follow the on-screen instructions.
•
PBC - Configures the WPS using Push Button Control.
You need to push a PBC button on your wireless router or access point to initiate the wireless connection. Please follow
the on-screen instructions.
NOTE: SSID is short for Service Set Identifier. It is an identifier for each wireless router or access point, and is also referred as a network
name. WPS is short for Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). It is the latest standard for easy and secure wireless home network configuration.
It is also named Wi-Fi Simple Config. To use WPS, a WPS compatible router or access point is required.
8. IP Setting: To determine how the player obtains its IP address. The available options are:
•
Auto (DHCP) - The player automatically obtains its IP address information using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).
This is the default setting. In most cases, automatic IP configuration can be used.
•
Manual – Allows you to manually enter the numeric IP address. Set the IP configuration manually only when the router has
no DHCP server functions or when the router’s DHCP server function is disabled. For more information on how to manually
configure the Internet connection and what values to use, please consult your broadband router/modem instruction manuals or
call your Internet service provider.
•
Internet Connection – Depending on your choice in “Internet Connection” option, this can be “Wireless” or “Ethernet”.
•
IP Address: The Internet Protocol address of the player. When “IP Setting” is set to “Auto (DHCP)”, the value displayed
here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
•
Subnet Mask: Each IP address has an associated subnet mask. It is used by the player to decide whether to route network
traffic through the router or directly to another device on the same network. When “IP Setting” is set to “Auto (DHCP)”,
the value displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
•
Gateway: The IP address of the router. It is also called “default gateway” or “default router”. When IP Setting is set to Auto
(DHCP), the value displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
•
DNS 1: The IP address of the first (primary) DNS (Domain Name System) server. DNS is the mechanism to translate humanreadable addresses (such as www.msbtech.com) to numeric IP addresses. When “IP Setting” is set to “Auto (DHCP)”, the
value displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
•
DNS 2: The IP address of the second (secondary) DNS server. When “IP Setting” is set to “Auto (DHCP)”, the value
displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
9. Proxy Setting: To configure the proxy server settings. The proxy server works as an intermediary for network communication between
clients and other servers, which can provide benefits like security, anonymity, speedup or circumventing regional restrictions.
•
•
On – To access the Internet via a proxy server.
•
Proxy Host: To enter the proxy host name using the remote control.
•

Depending on how the studios organize their BD-Live contents, some Blu-ray Discs may start downloading BD-Live contents when
playback starts; some have a BD-Live selection on its main menu; some may show a prompt to ask whether you would like to start
downloading; and some may ask you to sign up for a membership or account. Please follow the instructions that come with the disc to
enjoy BD-Live contents.
Your Internet connection speed, the overall Internet traffic situation and the capacity of the BD-Live content servers can all affect how
fast BD-Live contents can be downloaded. If you encounter slow downloading or intermittent playback, please play the disc without
accessing the BD-Live features, or try again at a different time.
When you use the BD-Live feature, the player or disc ID and your IP (Internet Protocol) address may be sent to the content provider via
the Internet. Generally, no personally identifiable information is sent. However technologies exist to match your IP address to a certain
geographical area or service provider. Your Internet service provider also has the knowledge of who is using which IP address. If the BDLive content provider requires you to login using a membership or account, the content provider will have access to your membership
or account information. Please check with your Internet service provider and the BD-Live content providers for their privacy policy.
You can choose to restrict BD-Live Access using the player’s Setup Menu.

4Kx2K > Auto > 1080p(50Hz/24Hz) > 1080i 50Hz > 720p 50Hz > 576p > 576i > Source Direct
NOTE: Some TV sets may not support one or more output resolutions. If an incompatible output resolution is selected, you will get a
blank screen or an error message. If this occurs, please select an output resolution that is supported by the TV. If you cannot get a picture
using HDMI, please remove the HDMI cable and connect the player’s DIAG (diagnostic) output to the TV using a regular composite
video cable, and then use the Setup Menu to adjust the player settings. Due to the “Analog Sunset” provision, as of January 1, 2011 all
Blu-ray Disc players made and sold going forward will not be able to pass high definition video (720p, 1080i, or 1080p) via Component
Video outputs. Because of this, we have removed the Component and Composite video outputs on the UMT, and only kept a standard
definition video output for troubleshooting purposes.
Zooming and Aspect Ratio Control
This feature zooms in or out of the displayed frame and also changes the aspect ratio (image width vs. height). To change the zoom level,
press the ZOOM button on the remote control. Each press of the ZOOM button will switch the zoom level in sequence.
Zoom Levels for HDMI 1 Output
The following zoom levels are available when “Primary Output” is set to “HDMI 1”:
1:1 (No zooming) > Stretch/Compress > Full Screen > Under Scan > 1.2 > 1.3 >1.5 > 2.0 > ½ >Back to 1:1 again
The zoom level is reset to 1:1 when the disc is ejected, or when the player is turned off.
The available zoom levels depend on the “TV Aspect Ratio” setting in the Setup Menu and the aspect ratio of the DVD or Blu-ray Disc.
The following zoom levels may be useful for some special applications:
1) Playing 16:9 BD or DVD when “TV Aspect Ratio” is set to “16:9 Wide” or “16:9 Wide/Auto”
• Stretch – The image is vertically stretched by 1.33 times. For movies with 2.35:1 aspect ratio, this zoom level cuts off the black
borders at the top and bottom of the image. Users of projector with anamorphic lens may find this mode helpful.
33
• Full Screen – The image is stretched by 1.33 times for both vertical and horizontal directions. For movies with 2.35:1 aspect ratio,
this zoom level cuts off the black borders at the top and bottom of the image while maintaining the correct aspect ratio. The left and
right sides of the image are slightly cropped.
2) Playing 4:3 BD or DVD when “TV Aspect Ratio” is set to “16:9 Wide”
• 1:1 - The image fills up the entire 16:9 screen but is horizontally stretched. Figures may look shorter and wider than they should be.
• Compress – The player maintains the correct 4:3 aspect ratio and adds borders to the left and right sides of the image. The brightness
level of the borders can be set by the “Border Level” setting in the “Picture Adjustment” section of the Setup Menu.
• Full Screen – This zoom level maintains the correct aspect ratio but crops the top and bottom slightly in order to fit the 4:3 image to
the 16:9 screen.
3) Playing 4:3 BD or DVD when “TV Aspect Ratio” is set to “16:9 Wide/Auto”
• 1:1 – The player maintains the correct 4:3 aspect ratio and adds borders to the left and right sides of the image.
• Stretch – The image is horizontally stretched by 1.33 times. This zoom level fills up the 16:9 screen, but figures may look shorter
and wider than they should be.
• Full Screen – This zoom level maintains the correct aspect ratio but crops the top and bottom slightly in order to fit the 4:3 image to
the 16:9 screen.
The “Under Scan” zoom level shrinks the image by 5%. This zoom level may be used to compensate for TVs that over scan, so the viewer
can see the entire image area with no cropping. All other zoom levels are indicated by their respective zoom ratio.
NOTE: Some early DVD titles (released from 1997 until early 2000’s) use a 4:3 non-anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio. When played
on a 16:9 display, the content is shown in a small window with black borders on all four sides. The top and bottom borders are encoded
into the video. The left and right borders are added by the player to maintain the correct aspect ratio. For these types of discs, the Full
Screen zoom mode can be used to eliminate the borders. The ZOOM feature may not be available when certain DVD or Blu-ray Discs
are played if the disc’s author has chosen to disable ZOOM.
34
Subtitle Shift
For customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant Image Height” video projection system, subtitles may get
cut off because they are positioned outside of the active video area. The Subtitle Shift feature can
be useful to these customers. The player can shift subtitles up or down so they are displayed within
the active video area.
To shift the display position of subtitles, please follow these steps:
1. When playing a DVD, Blu-ray Disc or other video programs recorded with subtitles, select the
desired subtitle from the disc menu or using the remote.
2. Press and hold the SUBTITLE button on the remote control until the “Shift Subtitle Position” prompt appears on the screen.
3. Wait until some subtitle text is shown on the screen. Use the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to move the subtitle text to the desired position.
4. Press the ENTER button to set the subtitle display position.
Once the “Subtitle Shift” position is set, it is remembered by the player in the Video Setup > Display Options > Subtitle Shift setup menu
option. The setting will be applied to subtitles of all DVD and Bluray Discs from now on. You can also change the setup menu item directly.

37
MEDIA FILE PLAYBACK
In addition to playing standard disc-based formats such as Blu-ray Disc, DVD, CD and SACD, the UMT can play media files. You can
enjoy digital music, movies and photos stored on a data disc (recordable CD, DVD or Blu-ray) or an external USB drive. Due to the
variation of media, encoding software and techniques used, compatibility cannot be guaranteed for all user-created or downloaded content.
Support for such content is on a best effort basis.
Playback from a USB Flash Drive
The UMT is equipped with three USB ports (one on the front panel and two on the back). You may use any of the USB ports to plug in
a USB drive.
The USB ports are rated to provide a maximum of 5V, 1000mA power to the USB drive. It is sufficient for USB thumb drives and flash
memory card readers, but may not be sufficient for USB hard disks. It is recommended to check with your drive manufacturer for power
requirement, or use an external power supply.
Supported USB Drives
• This unit supports “USB Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport” devices only. Most USB thumbs drives, portable hard disk drives
and card readers conform to this device class. Other USB devices such as MP3 players, digital cameras, and mobile phones may not
be compatible.
• Supported USB drives can be formatted with the FAT (File Allocation Table), FAT32 or NTFS
(New Technology File System) file system.
• In some cases, an incompatible USB device may cause the player to stop responding. If this
occurs simply turn off the power, remove the USB device, and turn the player back on.
• The player accesses the USB drive in read-only mode. In order to minimize the risk of data
corruption, it is recommended that you only unplug the USB device when playback is completely
stopped.
In-home Network Media Sharing
The UMT can remotely play back music, photo, and video files stored on media devices that are connected to the same home network.
You will need to prepare hardware such as a computer or NAS (Network Attached Storage) and install and configure software which is
functionally equivalent to DLNA or SMB/CIFS (a network file sharing protocol) client. Set the My Network selection to On in the Setup
Menu, press the HOME button on the remote to bring the Home Menu, select the Network icon and press ENTER button to show the
list of available servers. In some case, you might need to disable the firewall on the hardware to allow the UMT to see the server. The
UMT player can perform network sharing in one of the following three ways:
• As a digital media player (DMP): the player can actively search, access and pull content from local media servers which is functionally
equivalent to DLNA.
• As a digital media renderer (DMR): the player plays content received (“pushed”) from a digital media controller (DMC). A DMCcapable media server is required. Refer to the server’s respective user instructions for correct configuration and operation.
• Accessing a SMB/CIFS client: the player can directly access files shared through SMB/CIFS clients over the network, as if accessing
an external USB hard drive. Most computers, especially those installed with Windows, already have an SMB client embedded. Please
refer to respective OS instructions to set up the SMB/CIFS shared file/folder.
38
NOTE:
NAS is a networked appliance that provides file-based data storage services to other devices on the network. Commercial products are
available on the market.
SMB (Server Message Block) or CIFS (Common Internet File System) is mostly known as Microsoft Windows Network. It does not
require an extra media server or perform any media format transcoding, which reduces the processing load and keeps the original
content quality.
Compatibility with local network sharing hardware/software is on a best effort basis with no guarantee, due to variations in NAS devices,
media servers and their configurations.
Internet Streaming on HOME Menu
The UMT presents a Home Menu to assist you in navigating and playing media files from an inserted optical disc, USB flash drive,
external hard drive, home network sharing and internet streaming. Basically, the Home Menu is the starting point for accessing media files.
You can bring up the Home Menu with the HOME button on the remote control. Currently there are fourteen selections:
• Disc enables the player to start playback of an inserted optical disc.
• Music, Movie and Photo allow you to access corresponding type of media files from a connected USB drive and inserted data disc.
• Network enables the player to stream audio, video and photos from media servers on the home network. Capable hardware and
software may be required.
• Setup brings the player’s Setup Menu, just like pressing the SETUP button on the remote.
• Netflix connects you to your Netflix account and provides online movie streaming capabilities.
• VUDU connects you to your VUDU HD Movies account and provides online movie and TV Show rental, purchasing and streaming
capabilities.
• CinemaNow connects you to your CinemaNow account and provides online movie and TV episode rental, purchasing and streaming
capabilities.
• Film Fresh connects you to your Film Fresh account and provides online movie and TV Show rental, purchasing and streaming
capabilities.
• YouTube provides an uninterrupted stream of HD videos from YouTube as though you were watching a normal television channel.
• Pandora connects you to your Pandora account and provides personalized internet radio services.
• Rhapsody connects you to your Rhapsody account and provides personalized internet music services.
• Picasa connects you to your Picasa account and provides online photo viewing and sharing capabilities.
NOTE:
The Network feature is not officially supported due to the variation in hardware and software configurations. OPPO does not offer

Trouble Shooting Guide
I have no audio when using the ProI2S interface: Make sure you have connected the ProI2S output indicated with a Green ring to a
ProI2S input on the DAC IV Plus/Analog DAC. The DAC IV Plus has a green ring around the ProI2S input. The Analog DAC ProI2S
input module is also green. If you are using with an older DAC IV (Non-Plus) you will need the ProInput card installed and the input
configured correctly. The easiest way to test if it’s configured correctly is to cycle through the inputs, you should see “ProI2S.” If you
see “ProNetwork” the card is configured wrong. Please consult your manual for changing it over.
I am playing a SACD with a non-MSB product and I all here is noise/distortion: Your DAC is not DSD via DoP compatible. You will
need to change the output of the UMT Plus to output DSD via PCM by pressing <DIMMER><DIMMER><DIMMER><5>
I am trying to use the UMT Plus in multichannel mode with non-MSB DACs, but SACD is not working correctly: In multichannel
mode, the UMT Plus can only output the SACD as DoP. If you want it to work for compatibility only, you can change the on screen
settings not to output SACD but this will be of low quality and is not recommended.
I have no audio or the wrong channels coming out of the Toslink and RCA outputs: The unit is configured for multichannel mode.
Please change the unit back to stereo by pressing <DIMMER><DIMMER><DIMMER><4> for default stereo DSD DoP playback.
I am playing a SACD and I do not see DSD on my DAC display: ​This can be three problems.
1. Most likely you have HDMI audio on. When HDMI audio is on, the output settings are restricted by your TV. Please make sure to
go into the settings and set HDMI Audio to off. If you still do not see DSD on your DAC, please power off the UMT unplug the HDMI
cable, and try playing the SACD without a HDMI cable plugged in.
2. The UMT might be set up to play the CD layer. Please look in the display and check to see if it’s showing SACD Playback. If not,
please check your settings and set SACD Playback to Stereo.
3. The unit has been changed to output SACD via PCM instead of DoP. If this is the case, press <DIMMER><DIMMER><DIMMER><4>
for default stereo DSD DoP playback.
I have changed the unit to Multichannel playback, but I have no center channel: The default MSB settings have the center channel
turned off. Go into the settings to speaker setup and set the center channel to LARGE.
I am playing a movie and I hear no voices: The center channel in the speaker setup is turned on. Go into the settings to speaker setup
and set the center channel to OFF.
I can play some DSD files but other ones play at the wrong speed: The UMT Plus can only play DSD64x files. The UMT cannot play
128x DSD files.
The unit doesn’t power on: Make sure the 12v power is plugged into the primary power connector and not just the 2nd power connector.
None of the advanced remote commands work: Please make sure you have the latest firmware. You can check the version you have on
power up. When you take the unit out of standby the LED to the left of the display should blink red. The number of blinks is the firmware
revision number. If you do not see it blinking at all, you need to update your firmware. If you do see it blink, make sure you have your
UMT remote set to code 1 (Default).
The advanced remote commands work except for the reset: If the advanced remote commands work and when you do the reset command
and the light flashes for about 1.5 minutes but nothing happens on the screen please contact MSB or your local distributor.
