Connections
1. Connecting to your TV
The Unit can be connected to your TV in several different ways, depending on the design of your TV.
1. Connect the TV antenna (coaxial cable) to the input jack on the unit.
2. Attach one end of the supplied coaxial cable to the output jack on the unit, and the other end of the cable to the
input jack on your TV.
Alternate Connections:
1. If your TV has Audio/Video inputs, you can also connect the unit to your TV using the supplied Audio/Video cord.
2. If your TV is equipped with an S-Video input, you can utilize the S-Video jack to connect the unit to your TV with
an S-Video cord (not supplied) instead of the yellow video cable. Please note that the S-Video and coaxial cable
connection will only carry the video signal from DVD playback. VCR playback will still require you to use the coaxial
cable connection.

conventional TV screen , black bands appear at the top and bottom
of the screen.
16:9 Wide-screen
• This is the correct mode for playing wide-screen videos on a widescreen TV.
• You must also set the screen mode on your wide-screen TV to
"FULL".
The actual appearance of the image
depends on the screen mode setting of
your wide-screen TV.
Notes :
• The displayable picture size is preset on the DVD disc. Therefore the playback picture of some DVD discs may not
conform to the picture size you select.
• When you play DVD discs recorded in the 4:3 picture size only, the playback picture always appears in the 4:3
picture size regardless of the TV shape setting.
• If you select 16:9 wide-screen mode and you own a 4:3 TV set, the DVD playback picture will be horizontally
distorted during playback. Images will appear to be horizontally compressed. Always be sure that your TV shape
conforms to the actual TV in use.
