BEFORE YOU BEGIN
There’s Always a Catch
Because DVD is a new technology, we recommend
that you take some time right now to read through
this manual and familiarize yourself with the player.
I Know, You Really Want to Get
Going
I know that you’d rather use your DVD player than
read about it, so I’ve divided this manual up into
sections that address how to use each type of disc
that you can play on your player: DVDs, Audio CDs,
and Video CDs. So, you don’t have to read all of the
book at once.
Read the First Two Sections First
The first two sections, “Before You Begin” and
“Connections” include key information to get you
started in the right direction. I suggest that you read
at least these two sections before you do anything;
then you can go back to the sections that discuss the
features as you want to use them.
A Note about the Illustrations
The illustrations in this book are
representational, and in some
instances may not exactly match the
item represented.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
A Short Glossary of DVD
Terminology
Angles When making a DVD, the studio can incorporate
various camera angles which you can select by using the
ANGLE button on the remote. Note that not all DVDs contain
multiple camera angles.
Author Menu The Author menu is the menu on a disc that
allows you to change settings for that disc. We call it the
“author” menu because its features are “authored” by the
maker of the disc, and may vary from disc to disc.
Chapter Each Title on a DVD can be divided into chapters
(similar to tracks on an audio CD).
Dolby Digital* If you have a Dolby Pro Logic Surround
decoder, you will obtain the full benefit of Pro Logic from the
same DVD movies that provide full 5.1-channel Dolby Digital
soundtracks, as well as from titles with the Dolby Surround
mark.
Title A DVD may contain several different titles, for example
if a disc contains four different movies, each might be
considered a title (and each may have several Chapters within
it).
Subtitling Because so much information can be stored on a
DVD, many discs may contain foreign language subtitles.

chapter numbers, track numbers, or to make selections on some
menu screens.
FWD Allows you to search forward through a disc while it is in

Jacks and Cables
S-Video Jack and Cable
The S-Video jack provides the best picture quality for your DVD
player. This jack is available on many TVs and is used in
conjunction with audio cables to connect the DVD player to your
TV.
Remember also to connect the left and right audio cables
because the S-Video jack carries only the picture signal, not the
sound.
S-Video Jack
S-Video
jack
Audio/Video Jacks and Cables (RCA-type)
The audio/video jacks provide very good picture and stereo
sound quality, and should be used if your TV has no S-Video
jack.
These jacks are used for most audio/video connections between
components. The DVD audio/video jacks are color coded (yellow
for video, red for right audio, and white for left audio). If your TV
has only one input for audio (mono), connect it to the right (red)
audio jack on the DVD player.
Audio/Video jacks
RF Jacks and Coaxial Cables (F-type)
You may not need coaxial cables to connect the DVD player to
your TV, but you may need to use coaxial cables to carry the
cable, satellite, or off-air signal to your television.

If your television has A/V input jacks use them to connect your
DVD for better quality picture and sound. (For the best quality
picture, use the S-Video input if your television has one.)
DVD Player + Stereo Amplifier/Receiver + TV .............. 12
If your television has an S-Video input, and you have a Dolby
Digital Receiver (with optical-type input jack), use this
connection to get the best quality picture and sound.
DVD Player + TV + VCR ................................................ 13
If you want to include a VCR in your connection scheme, this
shows you one possible connection.
Finishing the Connection
After you have connected all of the components, you will need
to attach the power cord, and set the on-screen menu language

PLAYING DVDS
A New Way of Looking At Things
In this section you learn how to use your DVD player
to play Digital Video Discs (DVDs for short).
As a little up-front information, you should know that
although some of the remote buttons look the same as
those you would use with a VCR or CD player, the
functions work somewhat differently. So, take some
time now to find out how to play DVDs, and then you
can sit back and enjoy all of the features it has to offer
you.
Also Keep In Mind...
In order for some of the player’s features to work, the
DVDs that you use must be encoded by the studios
with specific information. For example, a disc must
contain subtitles in order for the player to show them
to you.
Regional Coding
Both the DVD player and the discs are coded by
region. These regional codes must match in order for
the disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will
not play. This player’s regional code is Locale #1.

What’s a Scene?
Because DVD is a digital format, the
information can be separated in many
different ways. One way that a DVD
might be separated is by scenes (as
in a movies). Each scene might be a
chapter on a DVD, so rather than
watching the whole movie to get to a

Using a DVD’s Author Menu
Each DVD is capable of having it’s own menu structure which
allows you to change the settings for audio, subtitling, and angle
for that disc only. In this manual we refer to this menu as the
“Author” menu because its contents are created by the author
(manufacturer) of the disc. Although the Author menu’s contents
and operation differ from disc to disc, the following example
may give you an idea of what to expect when you use this
feature.
