IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT INDIVIDUAL DVD DISC MENUS
There is no universal standard for the audio default setting of individual DVD movie discs. Some DVD movie discs have both
Dolby Digital and DTS audio soundtracks in addition to Dolby Pro Logic and normal stereo. Some discs will automatically begin
playback after they are inserted in the player and the drawer is closed. On other discs a “Disc Menu” will appear and playback will
not begin until you press the PLAY
or OK buttons. In the Disc Menu you also select the type of audio output and the languages
for the soundtrack and subtitles. It may also allow you to jump to specific scenes or chapters and play some special features, if
included on the disc.
The producer of the disc decides which default settings to use. For example the disc producer may decide to use “2 channel
stereo” as the default audio setting on a particular movie disc. If you do not change the default setting on the Disc Menu the
soundtrack will be heard in stereo, only from the front left and right speakers and the subwoofer.
The producer of the disc may decide to use a different language as the default setting for the audio soundtrack and the subtitles,
especially if it is a foreign film. They may also decide to use subtitles ‘On’as their default setting in the Disc Menu. If you prefer
to hear the soundtrack in English and cancel the subtitles you must use the Cursor buttons (3/4/5/6) and the OK button on
the remote control to select the appropriate options in the “Disc Menu”.
If you begin playing the disc and find that the settings are not what you expected (for example, the subtitles are ‘On’or not all
speakers are operating), press the MENU button on the remote control to ‘return’to the “Disc Menu”, then use the Cursor buttons
(3/4/5/6) and the OK button to select the desired settings and resume playback.
