About HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports
both video and audio on a single digital connection
for use with DVD players, Set-Top boxes, and other
AV devices.
HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).
HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted
and received.
HDMI has the capability to support standard,
enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to
multi-channel surround-sound audio, HDMI features
include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of
up to 5 gigabytes per second, one connector (instead
of several cables and connectors), and communication between the AV source and AV devices such as
DTVs.

3. Press SETUP MENU to return to the TV screen.
The DVD+VCR has two separate audio playback systems, the high quality VHS Hi-Fi system and standard
NORMAL mono system. The same audio is generally
recorded on both systems. The VHS Hi-Fi system
plays on separate (left and right) channels, and the
NORMAL system plays monaural sound. The normal
track is always played so the cassette can be played
on a DVD+VCR that does not have VHS Hi-Fi.
BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo
and/or Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display to the desired position when
both MTS stereo and SAP signals are received.
When only one of the MTS signal is received, the
DVD+VCR automatically selects the corresponding
receiving mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the
selected position. For normal operation, the display
should be in the STEREO position. The DVD+VCR
will then record a STEREO program when available,
and record a mono program IF the program is NOT
IN STEREO. For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer
sound.
AUDIO OUTPUT (STEREO/LEFT/RIGHT)
Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HI-FI/
NORMAL) is in HI-FI position] for selecting the audio
output signals from the AUDIO OUT terminals (L ch
and R ch), and RF.OUT. This display setting should
normally be left in the stereo position, so that when a
stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will be heard
through the left and right channels. If a mono tape is
played and the audio output is set to stereo, the same
mono sound will be heard from both left and right
channels.

Sample Freq. (Frequency)
If your receiver or amplifier is NOT capable of handling 96 kHz signals, select 48 kHz. When this choice
is made, this unit automatically converts any 96 kHz
signals to 48 kHz so your system can decode them.
If your receiver or amplifier is capable of handling 96
kHz signals, select 96 kHz. When this choice is made,
this unit passes each type of signal through without
any further processing.
Check the documentation for your amplifier to verify
its capabilities.

mode is set to “4:3”.
Letterbox: Displays a wide picture with bands on the
upper and lower portions of the screen.
Panscan: Automatically displays the wide picture on
the entire screen and cuts off the portions that do not
fit.
DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
With the DVD format, you can hear a program’s
soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation possible, thanks to digital audio technology.
However, you may wish to compress the dynamic
range of the audio output (the difference between the
loudest sounds and the quietest ones). This allows
you to listen to a movie at a lower volume without losing clarity of sound. Set DRC to On for this effect.

VHS Hi-Fi Stereo/
MTS Broadcast
This DVD+VCR is equipped with the VHS Hi-Fi audio
sound system for recording and playback. The information below gives a brief description of Hi-Fi audio
and how to record and play a tape in the Hi-Fi audio
mode.
Hi-Fi Stereo Audio Sound
A stereo TV with AUDIO/VIDEO input jacks or a stereo audio system is required for true stereo playback.
To experience the full and rich stereo sound available
with Hi-Fi recorded tapes, we recommend the connection of this unit to a home stereo audio system.
1. Set the AUDIO MODE option to HI-FI on the VCR
SETUP menu.

results in the left channel sound (L) being heard
from both speakers or (RIGHT) POSITION, which
results in the right channel sound (R) being heard
from both speakers.
3. Insert a cassette and press PLAY (N).
MTS (Multi-Channel TV Sound)
This DVD+VCR can decode MTS stereo and bilingual
(SAP) off-the-air broadcast sound signals. It also
decodes stereo TV sound from local cable companies
as long as they operate on assigned cable frequencies and use the EIA-recommended MTS stereo/bilingual TV sound system.
Multichannel TV Sound Indicator (MTS)
When you press ENTER/OK one or both of the indicators appears on the TV Screen.
STEREO
The DVD+VCR can record in stereo onto the VHS
Hi-Fi audio tracks when the BROADCAST TYPE
option is in the STEREO position. The DVD+VCR can
