Firstly check with the digital component’s instruction manual to see if it allows
for connection to the DVD player...
• via a coaxial cable
• or via an optical cable.
Make sure that no dirt can enter into the optical cable socket. This could cause
signal interference. Always insert the protective plug into the socket if no optical
cable is connected.
Connection via coaxial cable
9.3 Connecting audio components via an analogue cable
To connect the DVD player to a digital audio component with a digital coaxial
cable:
• Connect the COAXIAL inscribed plug to the corresponding socket on the
digital audio component.
If a digital input is not available on the audio component you can connect
the DVD player to it via conventional analogue cinch cables.
To connect the DVD player with analogue cables:
• Plug a cinch cable into each of the sockets FL (front left channel),
FR (front right channel), SL (rear left channel), SR (rear right channel),
CEN (front centre channel) and SW (Bass) on the rear panel of the DVD player.
• Insert the cinch cables into the corresponding analogue inputs of the
audio component.
Connecting via optical cable
To connect the DVD player to a digital audio component with an optical cable:
• Remove the protective plug from the OPTICAL inscribed socket on the rear
panel of the DVD player and insert the optical cable plug.
• Insert the plug at the other end of the optical cable in the corresponding
socket of the digital audio component.
9.4 Connecting the headphones
Note:
The headphones output is located on the front panel of the DVD player.
• Plug the 3.5 mm headphones jackplug into the headphones output.
The optical cable is a glass fibre cable and must not be bent during installation.
Otherwise the glass fibre contained in the cable could break and the cable
would become unusable.
Attention!
Listening to music with headphones for long periods and at high
volume levels can lead to hearing damage!

DVD is the short form for "Digital Versatile Disc". DVDs are a storage medium
for audio and video data; they are available in 8 cm and 12 cm (Diameter)
formats. Because of the much higher storage capacity as compared to CD-Rs/
CD-RWs DVDs can provide a playback duration of up to eight hours for the
audio and video data stored on them.
VCDs/S-VCDs
"Video CD" (VCD) and "Super Video CD" (S-VCD) are designations for two
processes of compressed storage, thus space saving, of films on CDs. VCDs
and S-VCDs are available in 8 cm and 12 cm (Diameter) formats. Their storage
capacity is a great deal lower than that of DVDs. For this reason they only
offer a playback duration, for the saved audio and video data on them, of
20 minutes (8 cm format) and/or 74 minutes (12 cm format).
VCDs are available in two versions:
• Only audio and video data can be played back on version 1.1
VCDs/S-VCDs.
• PBC (Playback control) functions are available on version 2.0 VCDs/
S-VCDs. In addition still images can be played back in a higher resolution.
Playback Control (PBC)
Version 2.0 VCDs/S-VCDs have Playback Control (in short "PBC") at their disposal.
Then on the VCD/S-VCD a main menu is available, by which various functions of
the VCD/S-VCD are allowed to be operated.
What are Title and Chapter?
Title is the name given to the largest units of image and sound units on DVDs;
on many DVDs the (Main) film has the title number 01. For bonus material
(i.e. Film trailer, background information etc.), that is available on many DVDs,
other possible title numbers can be used.
Chapter is the name given to the next smaller image and sound units beneath
title. If the DVD/VCD/S-VCD or its title is divided into chapters, numbers are
assigned to you, through the input of which the chapter can be selected direct.
Bear in mind that not on all DVDs …
• are the DVD or the title divided into (numbered) chapters
• Chapters are also designated as "Scenes" (i.e. in the main menu of
DVDs)
What are Scart, S-Video, Composite-Video Progressive
Scan, YUV and HDMI?
Scart
Scart denotes a 21 pole standardized plug connection, via which the RGB
signal, video signal and S-Video signal as well as a number of control and
auxiliary signals are transmitted.
S-video
When the DVD player is connected to a television via S-Video the brightness
and colour signals are transmitted seperately; in this way a greater image
sharpness and a reduced so called "Colour noise" is achieved.
Colour noise refers to the overlaying of the colours, mostly heavily saturated
parts of a video image, through an irregular, restive breakdown structure.
- 19 -

Composite video
Dolby Prologic
Video signal or FBAS signal; thereby it involves an image signal, in which
colour and brightness information are included at the same time.
In comparison to Dolby Surround sound format, with Dolby Prologic an additional
channel in the stereo signal is used; this is the so called "Centre" channel. The
corresponding centre loudspeaker is to be situated in the middle between the
stereo loudspeakers. The deepest sounds are fed to a bass loudspeaker, the
so called "Subwoofer". The subwoofer can be placed in any desired location
in the room; the logic for this is that the bass sounds that the subwoofer puts
out can scarcely be localized exactely by the human ear
Progressive scan
In the normal way TV devices and Video projectors are controlled with so
called "Half images". Thereby clearly visible line structures develop. Contrary
to this, Progressive Scan denotes the output of full images (with this DVD player,
at the output YPbPr) Progressive Scan signals can only be processed by playback devices equipped for this purpose (in particular large screen televisions
and projectors). The image quality as opposed to traditional image signals is
considerably higher.
Dolby Digital (5.1)
YUV (component video out)
YUV indicates the component signal, which with this device is available at the
output YPbPr in the form of so called "Half images"; as a rule this is the best
signal for the control of large screen televisions and projectors, which can not
process Progressive Scan signals. As with the RGB image transmission, YUV is
comprised of three separated image signals:
• the brightness signal "Y" and
• the two colour diferential signals "U/Pb" and "V/Pr"
Dolby Digital, also designated as AC3, is a digital sound format, by which up
to six seperate audio channels can be transported. With most of the current
DVDs, the sound is stored in the so called "Dolby Digital 5.1" format; the "5"
in the name "5.1" stands for the three front and two rear surround sound
channels, the "1" stands for the subwoofer channel.
DTS
DTS is the abbreviation for "Digital Theatre System" and denotes one of the
most common surround sound formats for DVDs. As with Dolby Digital 5.1,
DTS uses three front and two rear surround sound channels as well as a bass
sound channel.
Half images (Interlace)/Full images (Progressive Scan)
A standard television image is comprised of 576 visible lines; at first all odd
and then all even image lines are displayed alternatively, thus each displays
a half image. Thereby only 25 full images (50 Half images) can be displayed
per second. This technique is designated as "Interlace" format.
Contrary to this with the so called progressive or "Progressive Scan" format
all image lines are displayed every time, that is to say 60 full images per
second are displayed. Thereby increasing the total quality of the images, still
images and text for example appear sharper.
What are PAL and NTSC?
PAL
PAL is the abbreviation for "Phase Alternation Line". PAL is the mid and west
Europe (Exception: France) customary and widest distributed colour television
standard.
NTSC
NTSC is the abbreviation for "National Television System Committee". NTSC
is a colour television standard that is primarily used in the USA and Japan.
HDMI
HDMI is short for "High Definition Multimedia Interface" and refers to a 19
contact interface for complete digital transmission of audio and video data.
With its high bandwidth HDMI handles all known today home electronics
digital video and audio formats. HDMI transmits audio data up to frequencys
of 192 kHz with text widths of up to 24 Bit on up to 8 channels. Thus not
only all of today's image and sound formats introduced into home electronics
including HDTV (up to the highest present resolution of 1080p) are transmitted
without loss of quality but also future formats with yet higher resolutions.
Decoder
The sound on DVDs with home theatre sound is saved on the DVD in encrypted
(encoded) form. Different encryption formats exist for several purposes, for
example AC-3 for the playback of Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
In order to playback encrypted sound, the playback device (i.e. the DVD
player) and/or the audio component connected to it (for example Surround
system) must be equipped with a so called decoder, which converts the
encrypted signal back into music and/or sound.
The Silvercrest KH 6523 DVD player is equipped with an AC-3 Decoder
(for Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound signals).
Dolby Surround
Audio CDs
Audio CDs contain exclusively audio data; they are also available in 8 cm
and 12 cm (Diameter) formats. The playback duration for the audio data stored
on them amounts to 20 minutes (8 cm format) and/or 74 minutes (12 cm format).
Audio data is stored on audio CDs in CDA format.
MP3
MP3 denotes a process and/or format developed by the Fraunhofer Institute
for the compression of audio data. In the MP3 format compressed music pieces
are only a fraction of their original size, which, for example, on CD-Rs/CD-RWs
allows for storage of a considerably greater volume of music than on commercially available audio CDs, on which audio data is stored in the CDA format.
WMA
WMA ("Windows® Media Audio") is a data format developed by Microsoft®
for audio data.
JPEG
JPEG ("Joint Photographics Expert Group") denotes a wide spread graphic
format, developed by the organization with the same name, with which
image data of the colour and grey scales are compressed.
Dolby Surround is an analogue sound format, by which the two channels of
a stereo sound signal are used in order to accommodate room sound information
for further channels. Dolby Surround decoders convert the signals back into
sound or music and send the audio to two additional speakers that are situated
behind the listener.

What are folders?
As opposed to audio CDs the title on a CD-R/CD-RW with MP3, WMA or
JPEG files can be stored in folders, for example, in order to file titles from
different genres.
The structure of an MP3-CD can, for example, appear as follows, if the MP3
files are stored in folders:
MP3-CD
FOLDER
ORDNER
MP3
