~ This apparatus shall always be connected to a AC outlet with a protective grounding connection.
~ To disconnect the apparatus from the mains, the plug must be pulled out from the mains socket, therefore the
mains plug shall be readily operable.

Wiring the Main Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is indicated on
the pin face of the plug and if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover removed. If the cover is detachable and a replacement is required, it must be of the
same colour as the fuse fitted in the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you
should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do not connect
the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Never attempt to insert bare wires directly into a mains socket. A plug and fuse must be used at all times.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:– BLUE = NEUTRAL BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:–
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING : DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE
LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL
, OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND YELLOW.

Safety information
PrECAUTIONS
Ensure that the AC power supply in your house complies with the identification sticker located on the back of your player. Install your

During thunderstorms, disconnect the AC mains plug from the
wall outlet. Voltage peaks due to lightning could damage the unit.
Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or other heat sources.
This could lead to overheating and malfunction of the unit.
Protect the player from moisture (i.e. vases) , and excess heat
(e.g.fireplace) or equipment creating strong magnetic or electric fields
(i.e.speakers...). Disconnect the power cable from the AC supply if the
player malfunctions. Your player is not intended for industrial use. Use of
this product is for personal use only.
Condensation may occur if your player or disc has been stored in
cold temperatures. If transporting the player during the winter,
wait approximately 2 hours until the unit has reached room temperature
before using.

R
Position of Digital Home Cinema
Place it on a stand or cabinet shelf, or under the TV stand.
Selecting the Listening Position
The listening position should be located about 2.5 to 3 times the distance of the TV's screen size away from the TV.
Example : For 32" TV's 2~2.4m
For 55" TV's 3.5~4m
Front Speakers ei
Place these speakers in front of your listening position, facing inwards (about 45°) toward you.
Place the speakers so that their tweeters will be at the same height as your ear.
Align the front face of the front speakers with the front face of the centre speaker or place them slightly in front
of the centre speakers.
Subwoofer g
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical. Place it anywhere you like.

` Do not let children play with or near the speakers. They could get hurt if a speaker falls.
` When connecting the speaker wires to the speakers, make sure that the polarity (+/–) is correct.
` Keep the subwoofer speaker out of reach of children so as to prevent children from inserting their hands or
other objects into the duct (slot) of the subwoofer speaker.
` Do not hang the subwoofer on the wall through the duct (slot).

` If you place a speaker near your TV set, screen colour may be distorted because of the magnetic field
generated by the speaker. If this occurs, place the speaker away from your TV set.

HDMI Auto Detection Function
The player's video output will automatically change to HDMI mode when connecting an HDMI cable
while power is on.
~ HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is an interface that enables the digital transmission of video and audio data with just a single
connector. Using HDMI, the DVD Home Cinema transmits a digital video and audio signals and
displays a vivid picture.
~ Why does Samsung use HDMI?
Analogue TV's require an analogue video/audio signal. However, when playing a DVD, the data
transmitted to a TV is digital. Therefore either a digital-to-analogue converter (in the DVD Home
Cinema) or an analogue-to-digital converter (in the TV) is required. During this conversion, the picture
quality is degraded due to noise and signal loss. HDMI technology is superior because it requires no
D/A conversion and is a pure digital signal from the player to your TV.
● connections
~ HDMI connection description
HDMI connector - Supports video and digital audio data.
- HDMI outputs only a pure digital signal to the TV.
- If your TV does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), random noise
appears on the screen.
~ What is the HDCP?
HDCP (High-band width Digital Content Protection) is a system for protecting DVD content outputted
via HDMI from being copied. It provides a secure digital link between a video source (PC, DVD. etc)
and a display device (TV, projector. etc). Content is encrypted at the source device to prevent
unauthorized copies from being made.
~ What is Anynet+?
Anynet+ is a convenient function that offers linked operation of this unit through Samsung TV's with the Anynet+
feature.
- If your Samsung TV has an ' logo, then it supports the Anynet+ function.
- If you turn on the player and insert a disc, the player will start playing the disc, and the TV will turn on
automatically and switch to HDMI mode.
- If you turn on the player and press the Play button with a disc already inserted, the TV will
immediately turn on and switch to HDMI mode.
BD Wise (Samsung products only)
You can select to use the BD Wise menu only if the Samsung home cinema is connected to a Samsung TV that
supports BD Wise using an HDMI cable.
~ What is BD Wise?
BD Wise automatically adjusts BD Wise-compliant Samsung products to the
optimal settings between them.
This feature is enabled only if BD Wise-compliant Samsung products are
connected to each other using an HDMI cable.
~ To use BD Wise

1. Use an HDMI cable to connect the Samsung home cinema to a BD Wisecompliant Samsung TV.
2. Set each BD Wise menu of the Samsung home cinema and the Samsung TV
to On, respectively.
- This will optimize the picture quality according to the content (In the disc, DVD, etc) that you want to play.
- This will also optimize the picture quality between the home cinema and your BD Wise-compliant Samsung TV.
M
` If you want to change the resolution in BD Wise mode, you must set BD mode to Off in advance.
` If you set the BD Wise mode to off, the resolution of the connected TV will be adjusted to its maximum resolution
automatically.
` BD Wise will be disabled if the player is connected to a device that does not support BD Wise.
