instructions. Read the disc’s instructions carefully.
Media Care
[RAM] Use cartridges to protect them from scratches and dirt.
Cleaning discs
Discs are not indestructible and occasionally dirt or
condensation may appear. Clean by gently wiping with a soft,
dry lint-free cloth in a straight line from the center of the disc to
the edge of the disc.
Return discs to their cases and SD cards to their cartridges
when not in use; this helps to protect against scratches and
dirt.
Video cassette
p Poor quality or damaged video cassettes can cause the
heads to become dirty and malfunction.
p Never use video cassettes on which juice has been spilled
or those that are extremely damaged since this will not only
cause the heads to become dirty, but will also make the unit
malfunction.
Storing media
p Do not place or store media in the following locations:
– Direct sunlight
– Very dusty or humid areas
– Near a heat source
– Places that undergo extreme shifts in temperature
(condensation can occur)
– Where static electricity or electromagnetic waves occur
p Keep the Memory Card out of reach of children to prevent
swallowing.
Reference
Holding a disc or card
Handle discs by the edges to avoid inadvertently scratching or
getting oil from your fingers on the disc. Do not touch the signal
surface of discs (the shiny side) or the terminal surface (the
metal part) of SD cards.
Discs to avoid
p Discs that are not perfectly circular in shape
p Warped discs, which may not balance properly in your unit,
causing improper operation or damage to the unit
p Cracked discs
p Discs with exposed adhesive (from removed stickers or
labels, such as may occur with rental discs or improperly
cared-for discs that were previously labeled or re-labeled)

Glossary
Bitstream
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
This is a signal compressed and converted into digital form. It is
converted back to a multi-channel audio signal, e.g., 5.1-channel, by a
decoder.
Unlike conventional connections, it transmits uncompressed digital
video and audio signals on a single cable. This unit supports highdefinition video output (720p, 1080i and 1080p) from HDMI AV OUT
terminal. To enjoy high-definition video a high definition compatible
television is required.
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM-compatible recorders and discs.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is
called decoding.
This is a system used for compressing/decoding color still pictures. If
you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras, etc., the
data will be compressed to 1/10-1/100 of its original size. The benefit of
JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the degree of
compression.
DivX
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
Decoder
A video compression format developed by DivX, Inc. that compresses
video files without any considerable loss of video quality.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some
discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to the 5.1channel audio recorded on DVDs through your TV’s speakers. Some
discs prohibit down-mixing. If this is the case, this unit can only output
the front two channels.
An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately
one-tenth of its size without any significant loss of audio quality.
Pan & Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they will be
viewed on a widescreen TV (16:9 aspect ratio), so images often don’t
fit regular TVs (4:3 aspect ratio). 2 styles of picture, “Pan & Scan” and
“Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan & Scan:
The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Letterbox:
Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that
can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level
of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression means
reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds. This means
you can hear dialog clearly at low volume.
Film and Video
DVD-Video are recorded using either film or video. The unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film generally
being 24 frames per second.
Video is 60 fields per second (2 fields making up 1 frame).
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalize DVDR, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format), +R, and +R DL on the
unit. After finalizing, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer
record or edit. However, finalized DVD-RW can be formatted to become
recordable.
Folder
This is a place on the memory card where groups of data are stored
together. In the case of this unit, it refers to the place where still
pictures (JPEG) are stored.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format DVD-RAM, DVD-RW (only as DVD-Video format), +RW
and SD Card on this unit.
Formatting irrevocably erases all contents.
Frame and field
Frame refers to the single images that constitute the video you see on
your TV. Each frame consists of 2 fields.
W
Frame
Progressive/Interlace
NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (i) scan lines,
whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines.
This is called 480p.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your TV must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display
multiple pictures in the form of a matrix.
1080i
In one high definition image, 1080 alternating scan lines pass every
1/60th of a second to create an interlace image. Because 1080i more
than doubles current television broadcasts of 480i, the detail is much
clearer and creates a more realistic and rich image.
1080p
In one high definition image, 1080 scan lines pass at the same
time every 1/60th of a second to create a progressive image. Since
progressive video does not alternate scan lines like interlace, there is a
minimal amount of screen flicker.
720p
In one high definition image, 720 scan lines pass at the same
time every 1/60th of a second to create a progressive image. Since
progressive video does not alternate scan lines like interlace, there is a
minimal amount of screen flicker.

DIGITAL TELEVISION TRANSITION
NOTICE
This device contains a digital television tuner, so it should receive digital over the air TV programming,
with a suitable antenna, after the end of full-power analog TV broadcasting in the United States (as
required by law) on February 17, 2009. Some older television receivers, if they rely on a TV antenna, will
need a TV Converter to receive over the air digital programming, but should continue to work as before
for other purposes (e.g., for watching low-power TV stations still broadcasting in analog, watching prerecorded movies, or playing video games). When a Converter is used with an older television receiver, a
signal splitter might be necessary to continue to receive low-power analog broadcasts via an antenna. For
more information, please see www.DTV.goy or 1-888-CALL-FCC. For information on the TV Converter
program, and on government coupons that may be used toward the purchase of one, see
www.dtv2009.goy, or call the NTIA at 1-888-DTV-2009.
Please check with your cable or satellite service provider if you have questions about your cable or
satellite set-top box.

TELEVISION DIGITAL
Este dispositivo contiene un sintonizador digital, es decir puede recibir programas transmitidos en sefial
digital, con el uso de una antena apropiada, y despues de la finalizaci6n de las transmisiones de T.V. de
alta potencia analogas en los Estados l)nidos (como es requerido por ley) al 17 de Febrero de 2009.
Algunos receptores de televisi6n mas antiguos, que dependen de una antena requeriran de un convertidor para recibir programas transmitidos en sefial digital, pero ellos mismos pueden seguir funcionando
como anteriormente para otros prop6sitos (por Ej.: para ver programas de estaciones de baja potencia
que continuaran transmitiendo sefial analoga, ver peliculas pre-grabadas, 6 conectados a video juegos).
Cuando un convertidor es usado con una televisi6n mas antigua, podria ser necesario el uso de un distribuidor de sefial para continuar la recepci6n de sefiales de baja potencia analogas via antena. Para
mayor informaci6n, por favor accesar a www.DTV.gov 6 1-888-CALL-FCC. Para informaci6n sobre el
programa de convertidores de T.v. y el programa de cupones del gobierno que pueden ser usados para
la compra de uno, ver www.dtv2009.goy, 6 !lamar al telefono NTIA 1-888-DTV-2009. Por favor verificar
