Connections
Before using the player, connect the player to a TV and/or
amplifier.
NOTE
If your TV has an AV COMPU LINK terminal, you can use the AV
COMPU LINK function. See “AV COMPU LINK remote control
system” on page 33 for details.
Before making connections
• Do not connect the AC power cord until all other
connections have been made.
• Connect VIDEO OUT of the player directly to the video
input of your TV. Connecting VIDEO OUT of the player to a
TV via a VCR may cause a monitor problem when playing
back a copy-protected disc. You may also have a monitor
problem when connecting the player to an integrated TV/
Video system.
• In the following description, “TV” may be substituted with
“monitor” or “projector.”
• Terminal names used for other components may be different
from those used in the following description.
The following sections A to C describe TV connections where
only a TV is connected to the player so that you will hear sound
from the TV.
A Connecting to a conventional TV
NOTES
• Do not connect an S-video cable to the S-VIDEO output of the
player. If you do so, you will not be able to obtain correct signals
from the VIDEO jack of the player.
• If your TV has a monaural audio input instead of stereo, you
need to use an optional audio cable which converts stereo
audio output to monaural.
• You must change the VIDEO SIGNAL SELECTOR position
while the player power is off. Otherwise, the changed setting is
not effective.

C Connecting to a TV with component jacks.
HINT
You can enjoy picture of high-fidelity color reproduction by
connecting the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks on the player to
your TV.
Depending on the material source format, DVD VIDEO discs can
be classified into two types; film source and video source (note
that some DVD VIDEO discs contain both film source and video
source). Film sources are recorded as 24-frame-per-second
information, while (NTSC) video sources are recorded as 30frame-per-second (60-field-per-second interlaced) information.
When the player plays back a film source material, Progressive
(uninterlaced) output signals are created using the original
information. When a video source material is played back, the
player interleaves lines between the interlaced lines on each to
create the interpolated picture and outputs as the progressive
signal.
NOTES
• Connect “Y” to “Y,” “PB” to “PB” (CB), “PR” to “PR” (CR) correctly.
• When using the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks, do not
connect the S-VIDEO output jack on the player.
• If your TV has component video input jacks of BNC type, use an
adapter which converts a pin jack to a BNC jack (not supplied).
Progressive scan video playback available
Preparations
In the Progressive scanning mode, you can enjoy high quality
picture with less flickers when the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT
jacks are connected to a TV or monitor that supports the
progressive video input.

You can enjoy sound of enhanced quality by connecting the
player’s DIGITAL OUT (either OPTICAL or COAXIAL) jack to a
digital input of an amplifier, etc., using an optical or coaxial digital
cable. The digital audio signal on a disc will be transferred directly
from the player. If the connected digital audio equipment is a

Audio/Video files playback
Outline
The player can play back MP3/WMA/JPEG/MPEG-4 (Simple
profile) files on a personally recorded media as follows:
CD-R/RW, memory card, commercially available CD
The player can also play back MPEG-4 (Advanced simple profile)

different media, depending on the numbers of folders (groups)
and files recorded, etc.
• Files which do not belong to any folder are grouped into “group
1.”
• The player recognizes up to150 files per group, and up to 250
groups per disc/memory card. Files other than MP3/WMA/
JPEG/MPEG-4/DivX files count in the 999 total.

Appendix D: Glossary
ASF
ASF is an abbreviation of “Advanced Streaming Format,” and is a
data compression format for streaming developed by Microsoft
Corporation. ASF can contain the various data types such as
audio, video, and text.
Aspect ratio
A ratio which defines the shape of the rectangular picture in a TV.
It is the width of the picture relative to the height. A conventional
TV picture is 4:3 in aspect ratio.
Bitstream
The digital form of multichannel audio data (e.g., 5.1-channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
Chapter/title
Chapter is the smallest division and title is the largest division on
DVD VIDEO. A chapter is a division of a title and similar to a track
for Video CD or Audio CD.
Component video
Video signals with three channels of separate information that
makes up the picture. There are some types of component video,
such as R/G/B and Y/CB(PB)/CR(PR).
Composite video
A single video signal commonly used in most consumer video
products that contains all luminance, color, and synchronization
information.
DivX
One of the encoding methods for making MPEG-4 files.
Dolby Digital (AC3)
A six-channel system consisting of left, center, right, left rear,
right rear and LFE (Low-Frequency Effect channel, for use with a
sub-woofer) channels. All processing is done in the digital
domain. Not all Dolby Digital discs contain six (5.1) channels of
information.
Dolby Surround/Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Surround records four channels of front and rear audio in
two channels in a way that allows a decoder to recover the
original four channels for playback. Because the audio is
recorded in two channels, it can be played back naturally by a
two-channel stereo system.
Dolby Pro Logic introduces directional circuits in decoder-side
processing (increasing the level of specific channels and lowering
the level of silent channels) for greater spatial perspective, and
adds a center speaker used primarily for dialog. The result is
enhanced channel separation.
Down-mix
Internal stereo mix of multichannel surround audio by a DVD
player. The down-mix signals are output from stereo output
connectors.
DTS
A Digital Surround audio encoding format configured with six
(5.1) channels, similar to Dolby Digital. It requires a decoder,
either in the player or in an external receiver. DTS stands for
Digital Theater Systems.
Not all DTS discs contain six (5.1) channels of information.
Dynamic range
The difference between the loudest and softest sounds.
Interlaced scanning
In a conventional video system, a picture is shown on the display
monitor in between lines of two halves. The Interlaced scanning
system places lines of the second half of the picture in-between
lines of the first half of the picture.
JPEG
A popular file format for still image compression and storage.
JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group.
There are three sub-types of the JPEG format as follows.
• baseline JPEG: used for digital cameras, the web, etc.
• progressive JPEG: used for the web
• lossless JPEG: an old type, rarely used now
Linear PCM audio
PCM stands for “pulse code modulation.” Linear PCM is the usual
method for digitally encoding audio without compression, and is
used for the audio tracks on DVD VIDEO discs, Audio CDs, etc.
MP3
MP3 is an audio data compression format, which stands for
MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3. Using MP3, you can achieve a data
reduction of about 1:10.
MPEG-4
MPEG-4 is an audio/video data compression format, which is
highly efficient and more stable than MPEG-1 and MPEG-2.
NTSC (National television system committee)
A black and white and color television system format used in the
U.S.A., Canada, Mexico and Japan.
PAL (Phase Alternation by Line)
A color television system format used extensively in Western
Europe.
PBC
PBC stands for “Playback control” and is a method of controlling
disc play for Video CDs (VCD). You are able to interact with the
disc through menus.
Progressive scanning
Progressive scanning displays all the horizontal lines of a picture
at one time, as a single frame. A progressive scanning DVD
player converts the interlaced (525i/625i) video from DVD into
progressive (525p/625p) format for connection to a progressive
display. It dramatically increases the vertical resolution.
S-video
A video signal which improves picture quality over standard
composite connections. Used on Super VHS, DVD, high end TV
monitors, etc.
Track
The smallest division on SVCD, Video CD and Audio CD discs.
WMA
WMA is an abbreviation of “Windows Media Audio,” and is an
audio data compression format developed by Microsoft
Corporation. Sound quality of data compressed using WMA is
the same as that of MP3, though the WMA file size is smaller
than that of MP3.
37
Additional information
525i/625i/525p/625p
Indicates the number of scanning lines and scanning format of an
image signal. 525i (625i) indicates 525 (625) scanning lines with
interlace format, and 525p (625p) indicates 525 (625) scanning
lines with progressive format.
