encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the
following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the
receiving antenna.
– Increase the separation between
the equipment and receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an
outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is
connected.
– Consult the dealer or an
experienced radio/TV technician
for help.
• Do not expose the disc to

Step 7 : Setting up the VCR Plus+® system
To set the guide channels, use the Channel
Line-up Chart to check that the guide channel
numbers match the TV channel your VCR
receives. For example, if HBO is listed in the
Channel Line-up Chart as channel 33, and
your VCR receives HBO on channel 5, you
need to coordinate these numbers using the
following procedure. If the guide and TV
channel numbers are the same, you can skip
this procedure.

How to set up your VCR
Setting up your VCR involves coordinating
the TV channel number (the number you turn
to on your TV or VCR to watch a program)
with the guide channel (the number that is
assigned to that channel in your program
guide).
Example of “PlusCode”
Getting Started
How the VCR Plus+ system works
Whenever you want to record a TV program,
all you need to do is look up the “PlusCode”
number, a number assigned to each program
published in the TV section of most
newspapers, cable TV listings, and even TV
GUIDE magazine. Then, just enter the
PlusCode number of the program you want
and the VCR is automatically programmed to
record that show. It’s that simple.

• When playing DTS-encoded CDs, excessive noise will be heard from the analog stereo jacks.
To avoid possible damage to the audio system, the consumer should take proper precautions
when the analog stereo jacks of the DVD player are connected to an amplification system. To
enjoy DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an external 5.1-channel decoder system must be
connected to the digital jack of the DVD player.
• Set the sound to “Stereo” using the AUDIO button when you play DTS sound tracks on a CD
(page 80).
• Do not play DTS sound tracks without first connecting the DVD player to an audio
component having a built-in DTS decoder. The DVD player outputs the DTS signal via the
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (COAXIAL) jack even if “DTS” is set to “Off” in “AUDIO SETUP”
menu (page 59), and may affect your ears or cause your speakers to be damaged.

surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
5.1 discrete channels of high quality digital

DVD (page 7)
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving
pictures even though its diameter is the same
as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and
single-sided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte),
which is 7 times that of a CD. The data
capacity of a double-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided DVD is 9.4 GB, and double-layer and
double-sided DVD is 17GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format,
one of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/40 (average) of its
original size. The DVD also uses a variable
rate coding technology that changes the data
to be allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in a
multi-channel format, such as Dolby Digital,
allowing you to enjoy a more real audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
DVD+R (page 7)
A DVD+R (read “plus R”) is a recordable

HDMI is an interface that supports both
video and audio on a single digital
connection. The HDMI connection carries
standard to high definition video signals and
multi-channel audio signals to AV
components such as HDMI euipped TVs, in
digital form without degradation.
Progressive format (pages 32 and 64)
Compared to the Interlace format that
alternately shows every other line of an
image (field) to create one frame, the
Progressive format shows the entire image at
once as a single frame. This means that while
the Interlace format can show 30 frames/60
fields in one second, the Progressive format
can show 60 frames in one second. The
overall picture quality increases and still
images, text, and horizontal lines appear
sharper. This player is compatible with the
480 progressive format.

Procedimientos
Antes de comenzar
• Asegúrese de desconectar el cable de alimentación de CA de cada componente
antes de conectarlo.
• Desactive la alimentación de todo el equipo.
• No conecte los cables de alimentación de CA hasta no realizar todas las
conexiones. Si conecta el cable de alimentación de CA antes de haber completado
las conexiones, es posible que no pueda utilizar la función Plug and Play.
• Asegúrese de hacer las conexiones firmemente. Las conexiones flojas pueden
provocar distorsiones en la imagen.
• Si su televisor no coincide con ninguno de los ejemplos suministrados, consulte
con el proveedor Sony o técnico calificado más cercano.
Selección de la mejor opción de conexión
Si su televisor tiene entradas de audio/video, consulte la página 4 para la conexión de audio/
video (A/V). Siga después uno de los siguientes procedimientos de conexión. Si su televisor no
tiene entradas de A/V, vaya directamente a una de las siguientes conexiones.

en función de la conexión utilizada.
Precaución
Las conexiones entre el conector VHF/UHF del Videograbadora-DVD y los terminales de
antena del receptor de TV deberán ser hechas solamente como se muestra en las siguientes
instrucciones. Si no lo hace así podrá resultar en una operación que violará los reglamentos de la
Comisión de Comunicaciones Federal (FCC) relacionada con el uso y la operación de
dispositivos de radiofrecuencia. No conecte nunca la salida de la Videograbadora-DVD a una
antena ni haga conexiones simultáneas (en paralelo) de antena y Videograbadora-DVD en los
terminales de antena de su receptor.
Nota para el instalador del sistema CATV (en EE.UU.)
Este recordatorio está provisto para llamar la atención del instalador del sistema CATV sobre el
artículo 820-40 del NEC que ofrece directrices para la apropiada puesta a tierra y, en particular,
especifica que el cable de tierra deberá ser conectado al sistema de puesta a tierra del edificio, lo
más cerca posible del punto de entrada del cable como sea práctico.
