The Home Theater System plays music from CDs and music, videos and
photos from DVDs, memory card and USB. Music can also be played via
the AUDIO OUT port. The FM function lets you listen to the radio. The
appliance also plays photos from Kodak picture CDs. Read the manual
carefully before the first use.
DVDs and DVD appliances are manufactured under the worldwide agreed
DVD regional code system that the appliance will operate only with
corresponding disc of the same regional code. If the code number on the
label of a DVD does not match that on the label alongside, the DVD will
not play on this appliance.
55 The appliance has built in copyright protection technology that
prevents copying from a disc to any media. If a video recorder is
connected to the appliance, the video output image will be distorted
during recording.
