Fatto a Eindhoven
3
Refit the fuse cover.
Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 3 Amp,
A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.

have a value of 3 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 3 Amp.

Typeskilt finnes på apparatens underside.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
Observer: Nettbryteren er sekundert
innkoplet. Den innebygde netdelen er
derfor ikke frakoplet nettet så lenge
apparatet er tilsluttet nettkontakten.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
For å redusere faren for brann eller elektrisk
støt, skal apparatet ikke utsettes for regn eller
fuktighet.
¶ As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath
of the lead - not simply over the two wires.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a
digital interface that allows pure HD digital video
transmission without the loss of image quality.
The integrated control bus allows system control
between the TV set and connected devices like a
digital set top box.
DVS (Dolby Virtual Speaker) technology creates
a highly compelling 5.1-channel listening
experience from as few as two speakers, making
it an ideal entertainment solution for locations
where space for multiple speaker setup is limited.

Analog: Sound that has not been turned into
numbers. Analog sound varies, while digital sound
has specific numerical values. These jacks send
audio through two channels, the left and right.
Aspect ratio: The ratio of vertical and
horizontal sizes of a displayed image. The
horizontal vs. vertical ratio of conventional TVs. is
4:3, and that of wide-screens is 16:9.
AUDIO OUT Jacks: Jacks on the back of the
DVD System that send audio to another system
(TV set, Stereo, etc.).
Bit Rate: The amount of data used to hold a
given length of music; measured in kilobits per
second, or kbps. Or, the speed at which you
record. Generally, the higher the bit rate the
better the sound quality. However, higher bit
rates use more space on a Disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music
piece on a DVD that are smaller than titles. A
title is composed of several chapters. Each
chapter is assigned a chapter number enabling
you to locate the chapter you want.
Component Video Out Jacks: Jacks on the
back of the DVD System that send high-quality
video to a TV set that has Component Video In
jacks (R/G/B, Y/Pb/Pr, etc.).
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for the
selection of images, sound, subtitles, multi-angles,
etc recorded on a DVD.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into
numerical values. Digital sound is available when
you use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT COAXIAL
or OPTICAL jacks. These jacks send audio
through multiple channels, instead of just two
channels as analog does.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system
developed by Dolby Laboratories containing up
to six channels of digital audio (front left and
right, surround left and right and center).
JPEG: A still-picture data compression system
proposed by the Joint Photographic Expert
Group, which features small decrease in image
quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
MP3: A file format with a sound data
compression system, “MPE” is the abbreviation of
Motion Picture Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1)
Audio Layer 3. Through the MP3 format, one
CD-R or CD-RW can contain about 10 times as
much data volume as a regular CD can.
Multichannel: DVD is specified to have all
sound tracks constitute one sound field.
Multichannel refers to a structure of sound
tracks having three or more channels.
Parental control: A function of the DVD to
limit playback of the disc by the age of the users
according to the limitation level in each country.
The limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is
activated, playback will be prohibited if the
software’s level is higher than the user-set level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A system
for converting analog sound signal to digital
signal for later processing without data
compression.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for
reproduction control. By using screen menus
recorded on a Video CD or SVCD that supports
PBC, you can enjoy interactive-type software as
well as software having a search function.
Progressive Scan (P-Scan): It displays all the
horizontal lines of a picture at one time, as a
signal frame. This system can convert interlaced
video from DVD into progressive format for
connection to a progressive display. It
dramatically increases the vertical resolution. A
progressive scan TV set is needed to receive
progressive scan output from the system.
Region code: A system allowing discs to be
played only in preset regions. This unit will only
play discs that have compatible region codes. You
can find the region code of your unit from the
product label. Some discs are compatible with

separate signals for luminance and the color. You

represents how many times the original analog
signal is sampled per second.

realism by arranging multiple speakers around
the listener.
