Selecting TV and VCR Setup Codes
You can set up your remote control for your TV and VCR by consulting the tables in “ TV and
VCR Setup Codes” . You only need to set up your remote control for your TV, VCR 1 and VCR 2
(if applicable).
To set up your remote control for your TV or VCR(s):
1
Press the mode button for the device you are setting up (either TV, VCR 1 or VCR 2) for six
seconds.
The mode buttons will turn on and turn off one at a time. This sequence will repeat two
times and then the selected mode button will remain on. This indicates the remote is ready
to accept the four-digit setup code.
2
Enter the four-digit setup code for your TV or VCR. The setup code can be found in “ TV and
VCR Setup Codes” .
When the setup code is accepted, the selected mode button will blink three times.
If the setup code is not accepted or more than ten seconds have elapsed between button presses,
the selected mode button turns off. The TV or VCR then exits the programming mode and the
most recent pre-programmed setup code is restored.
You can only set up your remote control while in TV, VCR 1 or VCR 2 mode.
You can exit the setup mode at any time by pressing any button on the remote other than the
number buttons.

Overview
Ve ri fying a Setup Code U sing Bl ink Ba ck
You can use the remote control’s blink back function to verify a previously entered setup code.
The blink back function verifies a setup code by indicating the setup code number through a
certain number of blinks on the 1, 2, 3, and 4 buttons on your remote control.
To verify a setup code using blink back:
1
Press the mode button for the device you are verifying (either TV, VCR 1 or VCR 2) for six
seconds.
The mode buttons will turn on and turn off one at a time. This sequence will repeat two
times and then the selected mode button will remain on. This indicates the remote is ready
to accept the blink back code.
2
Press 9 9 0 on your remote control.
The selected mode button will blink three times and turn off.
3
Press 1 on your remote control. The 1 button will blink for a certain number of times.
The number of blinks that occur after pressing the number buttons represent the four-digit
setup code for the selected mode. The 1 button represents the first digit in the setup code,
the 2 button represents the second digit in the setup code, and so on for all four digits in the
setup code.
For example, to verify the TV setup code is 0047, after you press the mode button and 9 9 0,
pressing the 1 button will cause it to remain off, pressing the 2 button will cause it to
remain off, pressing the 3 button will cause it to blink four times, and pressing the 4 button
will cause it to blink seven times.
4
Press 2 on your remote control and count the number of blinks.
5
Press 3 on your remote control and count the number of blinks.
6
Press 4 on your remote control and count the number of blinks.
You can only set up your remote control while in TV, VCR 1 or VCR 2 mode.
After pressing the mode button and 9 9 0 sequence, you can exit the blink back mode at any
time by pressing any button on the remote other than the 1 button.

F i n d i n g a Set u p Co d e
Setup codes for your TV and VCR are listed by brand in “ TV and VCR Setup Codes” .
If the setup code for your brand of TV or VCR is not listed, or if your TV or VCR does not
respond to the setup codes listed for its brand, you can search for your setup code using your
remote control’s Step and Set function.
To search for a setup code:
1
Press the mode button for the device (either TV, VCR 1 or VCR 2) for six seconds.
The mode buttons will turn on and turn off one at a time. This sequence will repeat two
times and then the selected mode button will remain on. This indicates the remote is ready
to use the Step and Set function.
2
Press the Cursor Up
∧ button to begin Step and Set. The selected mode button will turn off.
If no setup code is currently programmed for the selected mode, the search begins with the
most popular setup code for the selected device. If a setup code has been previously
programmed, the search begins with the next setup code for that device.
3
Use the following buttons to determine if the setup code properly operates the selected
device:
Number buttons 0, 1, 2, or 3 (use to test TV setup codes)
Channel Up (use to test TV setup codes)
Play (use to test VCR setup codes)
Rewind (use to test VCR setup codes)
4
If the setup code successfully operates the device, press OK on the remote control. The setup
code is now programmed into your remote control.
If the setup code does not operate the device, repeat steps 2 and 3.
During Step and Set, if there is more than a ten second pause between pressing buttons on the
remote control, the remote will exit Step and Set and return to the previously programmed
setup code.
You can only set up your remote control while in TV, VCR 1 or VCR 2 mode.

Connecting Your TV
Before connecting your TV to the DCP501, you must determine which type of video connection
to use. The DCP501 features two types of video outputs: S-video and video (also referred to as
composite video). S-video is the highest quality video available on the DCP501. If your TV does
not offer S-video, use the VIDEO connections. To determine whether your TV features S-video
or composite video, check the manual supplied with your TV to determine the best connection
available.

Installation
Connecting to Cable TV
The DCP501 operates only with TVs with composite video or S-video capabilities. The DCP501
contains no RF output, so it will not function properly with older models of TVs with only RF
input.
Do not disconnect the cable connection between the RF In and To RF In ports. Removal of this
cable could disrupt operation of the DCP501.
IMPORTANT! The digital cable feature of your Motorola DCP501 can be activated only in
certain cable systems throughout North America. Contact your local cable TV provider to
determine whether the digital cable feature of your Motorola DCP501 can be activated. In cable
systems where the digital cable feature cannot be activated, you may connect an external cable
receiver provided by your local cable provider. For best results, connect an external cable
receiver through the audio and video inputs on the back of your DCP501.
WARNING!
To avoid damaging the DCP501, do not use the cable connection between the RF In and To RF ports as a handle.

Connecting Other Audio/Video Sources
You can connect an alternate audio/video source such as another DVD player by following the
diagram in Figure 20.
If you wish to use the digital audio output from a DVD player to the DCP501, you must assign
either the Optical1 or Coaxial digital audio input to the corresponding DCP501 video input
source by using the INPUT SETUP screens. If the DVD player is connected to the VIDEO2 inputs
on the front panel, the DCP501 automatically uses the OPTICAL2 digital audio input over the
analog input if it is available. See the “ Operations” section for information on using the INPUT
SETUP screens. Before connecting the DVD player, check the manual supplied with the DVD
player for the manufacturer’s installation guidelines.

Digital Audio Connections
Digital audio connections can be used with another DVD player, DAT players, and CD players.
The DCP501 has three digital inputs: a single coaxial input and two optical inputs. Optical 2
(Digital Audio In) is located on the front panel and is linked to Video 2. Coaxial and Optical 1
are located on the rear panel and can be assigned to any one of the VCR 1, VCR 2, or Video 1
inputs by using the INPUT SETUP screens. See the “ Operations” section for information on
using the INPUT SETUP screens.
If you are connecting audio equipment that uses Dolby 5.1 or DTS, be sure to connect the digital
output of the equipment to either Coaxial or Optical 1. Do not connect the equipment to any
other audio input.
When making digital audio connections, it is not necessary to make connections from both the
coaxial and optical digital outputs to the same component. When making an optical connection,
use a Toslink optical cable.

Operation
Some notes about DCP501 operation:
Lamp test
When you turn on your DCP501, a lamp test is performed on the DCP501 display. This
test causes all icons to turn on for ½ second and then MOTOROLA is displayed for
2 seconds.
Turning on the
DCP501 for the
first time
If this is the first time you have turned on your DCP501, S E T S P E A K E R S scrolls
once across the DCP501 display. The same message is displayed when you have
returned the DCP501 to the default speaker settings.
Setup Timeout
During any setup configuration, if no remote control or front panel button is pressed for
20-seconds, the DCP501 exits the setup mode.
Headphones
Connecting headphones to the DCP501 headphone socket mutes the DCP501
speaker outputs.
Speakers
Speakers rated at 8 ohms are preferred, but the DCP501 speaker outputs can drive
speakers rated from 4 to 16 ohms.

To turn on the DCP501, press the power button on the remote control or the front of the
DCP501.
When not in use, turn off the DCP501.
Setting Up Audio
This section includes information about setting up speakers and selecting audio inputs. Once a
digital input is assigned to a particular source, the DCP501 always uses the assigned digital
audio input instead of the analog audio input if both are present for the same source. You must
select various input sources from the INPUT SETUP menu so the DCP501 knows which digital
inputs are assigned. The DCP501 display shows the current audio input used by the selected
source: O P T 1 , O P T 2 , C O A X , or A N A L O G . For digital audio inputs only, the DCP501 turns
on an icon to distinguish the digital input type: P C M , d t s , or D D I G I T A L .

Subwoofer and Speakers
If you do not have a surround mode selected, you cannot make adjustments to the rear speakers.
Similarly, if you have no center speaker in the mode you are in, you cannot make adjustments to
the center speaker. So, you must set the DCP501 to an audio mode that uses the center channel
and/or the surround channels in order to make adjustments to the center speaker and/or
surround speakers.
This option defines whether a subwoofer speaker is connected to the AUDIO-PREOUT-SUB
connector. If N O is selected, Speaker Size for all speakers defaults to L A R G E . The factory
setting is Y E S . To change the subwoofer settings on the DCP501:

21 Press SELECT or OK and the currently selected setting flashes. In this example, L A R G E
flashes. The L A R G E and S M A L L settings determine which speakers receive low frequency
(bass) information. Use the L A R G E setting for a speaker that is a traditional full-range
speaker capable of reproducing sounds below 100Hz. Use the S M A L L setting for smaller,
frequency-limited satellite speakers that do not reproduce sounds below 100Hz. When the
S M A L L setting is used, a subwoofer is required to reproduce low frequency sounds. Note
that L A R G E and S M A L L refer to the speaker’s ability to reproduce low frequency sounds
and not their physical size. Consult the manufacturer’s manual that accompanied your
speakers for more information.

Test Tone Adjust
The Test Tone option allows you to hear test tones and adjust the level of these tones on
speakers connected to the DCP501 to properly balance the sound system with the listening area.
For full benefit, Test Tone Adjust should be performed when the DCP501 is in Dolby-Digital
or dts mode.
You can be in any audio mode except stereo to enter the Test Tone Adjust menu. You can
only adjust the test tone levels for the speakers that are used in the audio mode you have
selected. For example, Dolby 3 Channel Stereo uses left, right, and center speakers. You can
adjust the test tones for these three speakers, but not for either of the surround speakers. In
any of the full surround modes, you can adjust all five test tone levels — left, right, center,
right surround, left surround. You are not allowed to adjust any of the test tones when
stereo mode is selected.
Set the base volume level of each speaker with this option.
Perform this operation while sitting at the listening position. The factory setting is 0 d B .
As the tone is played through each speaker, the current setting flashes. Use the DCP501 remote
< >) to adjust the volume level of each speaker so that
control or front panel CURSOR left/right (<
all speaker volumes sound the same.
It is not necessary to press SETUP or OK to record your settings for each speaker.
To use the Test Tone Adjust feature:
1
Press SETUP to display the DCP501 M A I N S E T U P menu on your TV or A U D I O S E T on
the DCP501 display.

Playing an MP3 Audio CD on the DCP501
Your DCP501 allows you to play MP3 audio CDs created on a PC. To start, stop, pause, and skip
a selection on a CD containing MP3 audio files, use the same buttons on the DCP501 front panel
or remote control as you would with any DVD or audio CD. When creating an MP3 CD on a PC,
the transfer bit rate setting for compression should be set to 128Kbps. The DCP501 is
compatible with 32, 44.1, and 48kHz sampling frequencies. The DCP501 can read an MP3 CD
created under a PC file structure within the following guidelines:
Readable characters are alphabetic characters A-Z, numbers 0-9, and the underscore (_).
The MP3 extension is attached to all filenames.
Never add the MP3 extension to any files other than MP3 files on a CD played on the
DCP501. If the MP3 extension is added to any files other than MP3 files, the DCP501
produces loud noises and may damage your speakers.
Make sure an MP3 file can be played on a PC prior to copying the file(s) to a CD.
Make sure you close the MP3 copy session on your PC when creating an MP3 CD. An MP3
CD does not play on the DCP501 if the session was not closed.
Filenames and folder names may not be properly displayed with some PC MP3 software.
Do not store files or folders other than MP3 on the media to be played back on the DCP501.
In some instances, MP3 playback does not occur when audio CD (CD-DA) and MP3 audio
are stored on the same CD.
It is not possible to playback more than the maximum allowable folder and files allowed by
the media. The maximum is a total of 223 files and folders.
When exceeding more than eight characters, MP3 folder and file names are displayed in an
abbreviated format by the DCP501.
