Input 8 is selected. When another input besides Input 8 is selected, Trigger
#1 will go to 0V DC.
The Ethernet port is a 10/100 Base Ethernet port, that allows receiving and
sending multicast audio streams when used with a DMS/SNP URC Multi
zone system, and also used for command and control when used with an
MRX-10/MRX-12 (or similar) URC Advanced System Controller.
Pressing the RESET button will return the DMS-AV to its factory default
state.
2. Optical and Coaxial Digital S/PDIF Inputs/Output - By default, the
optical and coaxial S/PDIF audio inputs are not assigned to any composite,
component or HDMI video input. The optical and coaxial S/PDIF inputs
require assignment to a video input (via the on-screen display, or the URC
Accelerator PC application).
Any of the optical/coaxial S/PDIF inputs can be assigned to any numbered
video input (Composite, Component or HDMI). The optical/coaxial S/PDIF
inputs cannot be assigned to Input Phono or Input Multi Cast Stream, since
those inputs are “Audio Only” inputs.
The optical digital output shall provide a S/PDIF digital output of any selected
optical input signal. This digital output is for use with a digital recording device.

3. Remote Infrared Input - The Infrared Input port allows for easy integration with
an RF(radio frequency) to IR (infrared) style base station, such as the URC MRF-350
or MRF-260. This port provides the ability to perform simple one-way control of
the DMS-AV with a URC legacy-style infrared remote control, such as a MX-900,
MX-980 or MX-880, among others. Use of this port with RF based remote controls
allows for “stand alone” operation of the DMS-AV, that is, use of the DMS-AV
without an MRX-10/MRX-12 or similar external URC Advanced System Controller.
This is a 3.5 mm mono style female mini jack input, with the tip being positive(+),
and the sleeve being ground.
4. HDMI Inputs/Output - The DMS-AV supports six HDMI connections; five are
used for signal input, while one supports HDMI signal output.
The DMS-AV supports a single HDMI video output. All video signals sent to the
DMS-AV via composite, component, HDMI, or generated by the internal on-screen
display output via the HDMI OUT connector.
The HDMI Technology within the DMS-AV supports all versions of HDMI, which
means it is compatible with the following formats:
sRGB
YCbCr
Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD Video and Audio at Full Resolutionn
Consumer Electronic Control (CEC)
Deep Color
xvYCC
Auto Lip-Sync
Dolby TrueHD Bitstream Capable
DTS-HD Master Audio Bitstream Capable

5. Main AC Rocker Style Switch - Provided is a Main AC Rocker Switch. This
switch is sometimes known as a “Vacation” switch, and is used to remove main
AC from the DMS-AV, or perform a hard reboot of the unit.
6. Composite Video Inputs - The DMS-AV supports four composite video RCA
connectors. All video present at these connectors is upconverted to the HDMI
Video Output.
7. Analog Audio Inputs - The DMS-AV provides seven total analog audio inputs.
Six of these inputs support a line-level analog audio signal. One of these inputs
will support a phono level analog audio signal. The Phono Input supports the MM
(Moving Magnet) phono input type. The Phono Input also provides a ground lug
connector on the DMS-AV back panel.

DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
8. Component Video Inputs/Output - The DMS-AV has three component video
connections. Two of these connections are inputs, while the third connection acts
as a video output (in case HDMI is not used).
The component video inputs accept a maximum input resolution of 1080i/60Hz.
The component video output supports a maximum output resolution of
1080i/60Hz. Composite and HDMI video are not converted and will not output via
the component video. The on-screen display is not viewable via the component
video output as it only works with HDMI.
9. Setup Microphone Input - This jack allows the connection of an external
microphone for automated setup of the DMS-AV speakers, in regards to
crossovers, audio levels, and equalization. This is a 3.5 mm mono style female
mini jack, tip being positive(+), and sleeve being ground. A setup microphone is
provided.
10. Record Output – This output is an analog left/right line level signal of the
currently selected analog audio input. Only analog audio input signals are output
via this connection. Volume control settings do not effect the record output. This
stereo pair of analog RCA outputs are for use with an analog recording device.
11. Preamplifier Outputs – The DMS-AV supports nine preamplifier audio
outputs. In addition to the standard “7.1” audio outputs, including front, center,
surround and subwoofer channels, the DMS-AV shall also support a second
subwoofer output channel. These surround outputs are designed for driving
external power amplifiers or powered speakers.
12. Speaker Outputs - The DMS-AV provides seven amplifier channels for
surround sound reproduction, rated at 125 watts per channel into an 8 ohm
speaker load
Within the on-screen display or the URC Accelerator Application, set your DMSAV to use "Surround Back" amplifier channels or "Front Height" amplifier
channels. Surround back speakers and front height speakers cannot be
powered simultaneously.
The output connectors are industry standard high-current binding posts.
Bare speaker wire may be secured within the screw-type binding posts, or
banana plugs may be inserted into the center of the binding posts.
The processed audio present at the binding post connectors (speaker
connections) contains the same processing as the audio present at the preamplifier stage. As an example, if a crossover is applied to the front left and
right preamplifier channels, the same crossover settings are applied to the
front left and right speaker outputs, only amplified.
13. AC Receptacle - For attaching the supplied high current AC power cord
to the unit.

Quick Start Considerations
Your URC receiver is pre-programmed for ease of operation, right out of the
box. In general, there is minimal setup required to start using your new
DMS-AV Network Home Theater Processor.
To quickly setup and begin operating your receiver, follow these steps:
1. Start with all AC power cords unplugged from their designated AC outlet.
2. From each source device, connect the A/V cables which could include
composite, component, or HDMI cables.
3. Connect the speaker cables from the receiver’s speaker outputs to the
appropriate speakers.
4. Connect the appropriate video cables from the receiver’s video outputs to
the video monitor’s input(s).
5. Connect an Ethernet cable from the DMS-AV to local network router.
6. Plug the AC power cords for the DMS-AV and all connected sources into
their designated AC outlets.
7. Power On the DMS-AV. Bring the DMS-AV out of “standby” mode, via
the front panel “standby” button.
8. Power On all source components.

DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
The rest of this manual will give further insight into the many aspects of your
new receiver. Some additional installation considerations should be noted as
follows:
• It is important that your electronic equipment be located where there is
proper ventilation. Failure to ventilate your receiver could result in erratic
operation and possible failure caused by overheating. A minimum of 0.3m
should be maintained above the receiver. Do not place items directly on top
of the receiver. Do not place flammable items on, around or near the A/V
equipment (curtains, paper, etc.).
• URC provides a software program, URC Accelerator, that aids in the setup
process of the DMS-AV. Contact your URC Representative to acquire this PC
Application. URC Accelerator is easy to use and is intended to simplify the
setup process of your new URC Network Home Theater Processor and all
user interfaces.
• Configure a system diagram of all components that are to be connected into
the system. The receiver has a total of eleven Audio and Video inputs, and 1
Phono input. The back panel is labeled IN 1, IN 2, IN 3, IN 4, IN 5, IN 6,
Phono, IN 7, IN 8, IN 9, IN 10, IN 11 for component video /analog audio
sources, Phono for the phono source, and HDMI sources.
The optical digital and coax digital inputs are labeled IN A, IN B, IN C and
IN D respectively, and can be assigned to any of the composite, component
and HDMI Video inputs. By default, the optical and coax digital inputs are not
assigned to any video input. Use the on-screen display or the URC Accelerator
application to assign an optical or coax digital input to any video input.
The source names by default are set to IN 1, IN 2, IN 3 etc...The inputs may be
renamed in the on-screen display, or in the URC Accelerator application to
reflect the desired source name. For example, the name IN 9 may be changed
to “Blu-Ray. The renamed source input name will appear on the DMS-AV’s OSD
(on-screen display).
Page 18
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
• Determine the type of cable that is needed for each connection. Keep in
mind that the quality of the cabling that is used may make a difference in the
overall audio and video quality. Try to keep interconnecting cable runs as
short as possible. When routing cables between equipment, be sure to keep
AC cables separate from audio cables. It is a good idea to bundle like cables
together to keep interference (noise) to a minimum.
• It is a good idea to label each cable with a name or number at both ends,
when allocating each cable. Have all the cables you need before you begin
the installation because it is inconvenient to run to the store when you are
excited to hear what the system will sound like.
• Plan enough cable length and space to allow future access to the back panel.
• For best performance it is recommended that a dedicated AC power line or
supply be used. If the equipment is installed in a rack, be sure to insulate the
equipment from the rack itself.

Edge Enhancement
Edge Enhancement brings out the fine detail in the edges of objects, and is
important for SD and HD material. When combined with Noise Reduction and
Advanced Scaling, DMS-AV Edge Enhancement can make regular DVDs
approach the quality of high definition DVDs.
HDMI Audio Output
The HDMI output of the DMS-AV has the ability send the processed audio to
the display monitor, bypassing the preamp section and speaker outputs. In the
HDMI Setup menu within the on-screen display and the URC Accelerator
application, set the HDMI Audio Output to “Passthrough” to enable this option.
CEC Control
The DMS-AV has the ability to execute Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) to a
monitor or projector that is connected by HDMI, and is CEC Capable.
Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) is a feature designed to allow the user to
command and control two or more CEC-enabled boxes, that are connected
through HDMI, by using only one of their remote controls. (i.e. controlling a
television set, set-top box and DVD player using only the remote control of the
TV). CEC also allows for individual CEC-enabled devices to command and
control each other without user intervention.
CEC options for the DMS-AV are the following:
• On (Power On)
• On (Always)
• Off
The default CEC setting for the DMS-AV is Off.
Consult your individual display monitor or projector manual for specific
information regarding their CEC compatibility.
Auto A/V Sync
This feature monitors an incoming HDMI bitstream, and uses information
within the bit stream to automatically correct any audio and video syncing
issues. By default, this option is set to Off.
Page 28
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Video PReP®
Progressive Re-Processing (PReP®) is the industry’s first technology
designed specifically to improve progressive video signals by removing the
artifacts causedby inferior interlaced-to-progressive conversion. Video
signals that originate inthe interlaced format used by most broadcasters
often suffer degradation whenthe signal is converted to the progressive
format required by digital displays. Ifthis process is not done well, it results
in artifacts which will be amplified duringscaling or other processing such
as detail enhancement. The patent-pending PReP technology addresses this
problem be reverting the progressive video signal to its original interlaced
format so that it can be reconverted to progressiveusing a higher-quality
deinterlacer.
The DMS-AV has two available options for PReP – Auto and Off. By default,
PReP is set to Off. This value can be set in the on-screen menu or the URC
Accelerator Application, in the Video Adjust section.
Video Test Patterns
The DMS-AV firmware includes eight video test patterns used to calibrate a
video display device. Typically, an external video test pattern generator is
required for professional display device setup. The DMS-AV provides access
to these patterns within the on-screen display, and also accessible via the
URC Accelerator Application.
The video test patterns available are:
Frame Geometry
‘Frame/Geometry’ test pattern is used to verify that the image is positioned
correctly on your display.
Bright/Contrast
The ‘Brightness/Contrast’ test pattern will assist you in setting up both the
brightness (black level) and contrast (white level) of your display. The
‘Brightness/Contrast’ test pattern is composed of 4 quarter-screen blocks.
Two of the blocks have a background level of standard black and the other
two blocks have a background level of standard white.
Embedded in the black blocks are 3 bars. One is 4 IRE below black
(blacker-than-black), one is 1 IRE above black, and the third is 2 IRE above
black. Embedded in the white blocks are 3 bars. One is 1 IRE above white
(whiter-then-white), one is 1 IRE below white, and the third is 2 IRE below
white. The bottom two blocks differ slightly from these levels. For the
bottom two blocks, the blacker-than-black is at the lowest possible luma level
and the whiter-than-white bar is at the highest possible luma level.
Page 29
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
When the brightness and contrast are adjusted correctly, you should be able to
see the 1 IRE and 2 IRE above black bars on the black background and the 1
IRE and 2 IRE below white bars should be visible on the white background.
When the brightness is adjusted correctly, black objects should appear ‘black’
with the details still intact and lighter areas should be ‘light’, not gray, with the
details still intact. When the contrast is adjusted correctly, white objects will
appear ‘white’ with the details still intact. Because the contrast settings can
affect brightness settings we recommend that you check the brightness setting
after making this adjustment.
Checker board
When the Checkerboard test pattern is displayed correctly, close up you should
be able to see a 1- pixel checkerboard and at proper viewing distance the
image should appear as an even gray. If your display is CRT-based you will not
see this checkerboard, but your screen should be an even gray. When this test
pattern is displayed incorrectly, the resulting image does not look like a fine
checkerboard and may have irregular patterns. If this is the case then the
chosen output resolution may not be the native resolution of your display or
your display may scale all input signals even if the input resolution is already at
native resolution. Check to make sure that the output resolution selected on the
DMS-AV is the correct output resolution for your display.
Vertical Lines
The ‘Vertical Lines’ test pattern should appear as one pixel wide black and
white columns. If you see any irregular pattern(s) in the image then you know
that the display is scaling the signal horizontally.
Horizontal Lines
The ‘Horizontal Lines’ test pattern should appear as one pixel tall black and
white rows. If you see any irregular pattern(s) in the image then you know that
the display is scaling the signal vertically.
Judder
The ‘Judder’ test pattern displays a bar that bounces back and forth at the
chosen output resolution. When this test pattern is displayed correctly, the bar
will move smoothly across the screen and bounce from side to side. When this
pattern is displayed incorrectly, this bar may ‘tear’ as it moves across the screen.

The on-screen display transparency can be set to Low, Medium or High. The
default value for the DMS-AV is Low. This value can be set in the on-screen
display, or the URC Accelerator Application.
Audio Modes and Speaker Selections
The DMS-AV incorporates a state-of-the-art software and hardware system that
allows the end-user to select the appropriate number of speakers, two-channel
surround decoder (Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Pro Logic IIz or DTS NEO:6) or

the URC Accelerator PC Application.
DMS-AV System Settings – Audio
Speaker Size/Speaker Crossover
Speaker size refers to the frequency range a speaker can handle. Audio
material, particularly Dolby Digital and DTS movies, often contain large
amounts of bass. If this bass information is sent to small speakers that are
incapable of reproducing bass, then this information will be lost or distorted.
Too much bass may damage small speakers. By configuring the DMS-AV for the
correct type of speaker crossover, all bass information will be appropriately
routed to the speakers that are best able to reproduce it correctly.
Typically bookshelf or satellite speakers are considered Small. Smaller floor
standing speakers with a single 8” or less woofer should also be considered
Small. Floor standing speakers with 10” or larger woofers, or multiple smaller
woofers may be considered Large. These are general guidelines only if you are
unsure, please consult your speaker manufacturer or dealer.
If using large speakers, the system may not require a subwoofer, however better
results may still be obtained with the use of a subwoofer. Even with speakers
that are capable of reproducing deep bass, better overall bass response may be
obtained by setting a crossover frequency for these speakers. This allows bass to
be reproducedfrom a single point (the subwoofer), and avoids the possibility of
phase cancellationwhich may occur when bass is reproduced from multiple
speakers simultaneously.
Page 32
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Front Speakers
There must be at least 2 front speakers in order to use the DMS-AV. Set the
crossover frequency of the front speakers in the on-screen display or the
URC Accelerator Application, based on the guidelines described above.
Center Speaker
It is not necessary to have a center speaker. Set the Center Speaker Option
in the on-screen display to Yes or No, or set this in the URC Accelerator
Application, based on the center channel availability. If set to NO the
center information will be reproduced in the front left and front right
speakers. No audio information is lost, however the sense of voices coming
from the screen may be lost. Set the crossover frequency of the center
speaker in the on-screen display or the URC Accelerator Application, based
on the guidelines described above.
Surround Speakers
It is not necessary to have surround speakers. Set the Surround Speaker
Option in the on-screen display to Yes or No, or set this in the URC
Accelerator Application, based on the surround channels availability. If
Surround Speaker Option is set to NO, the surround information will be
reproduced in the front left and right speakers. No information is lost but
the sense of spaciousness provided by discrete 5.1 channel sound tracks or
2 channel tracks enhanced by Dolby Pro Logic IIx or DTS Neo:6 may be
lost. If surround speakers are set to No, surround back speakers are not
available.
Surround Back Speakers
It is not necessary to have surround back speakers. Set the Surround
Speaker Option in the on-screen display to Yes or No, or set this in the URC
Accelerator Application, based on the surround channels availability. If the
surround speakers are set to none, no options will appear for the surround
back speakers. There is the option to use 1 or 2 back speakers. If set to
none, the back information will be reproduced in the surround speakers
and although no information is lost, the sense of sounds coming from
directly behind you may be lost. If surround back speakers are used, front
height speakers are not available.
Page 33
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Front Height Speakers
It is not necessary to have front height speakers. Set the Front Height
Option in the on-screen display to Yes or No, or set this in the URC
Accelerator, based on the surround channels availability. If set to none, the
front height speaker information will be reproduced in the front speakers
and although no information is lost, the sense of sounds coming from
directly above you may be lost. If front height speakers are used, surround
back speakers are not available.
Subwoofer(s)
There are four choices for subwoofer. If set to No, all bass information,
including LFE (.1 channel) will be routed to any speakers that are
configured to pass low frequency information, as described in the setup
above. If the individual speaker crossovers are not set to pass low frequency
information, and no subwoofers are used in the system, the low frequency
information shall be lost.
The most common setting for subwoofer is Preout 1/2, which allows for
connections of two subwoofers, taking advantage of the DMS-AV’s ability to
reproduce low frequency information through two subwoofers (.2).
Setting the Subwoofer to Preout 1 shall configure the DMS-AV to send low
frequency information from its Sub 1 preamplifier output only.
Setting the Subwoofer to Preout 2 shall configure the DMS-AV to send low
frequency information from its Sub 2 preamplifier output only.
Speaker Distance
Ideally the speakers should be positioned at an equal distance from the
listening position. However, physical limitations usually require placing the
speakers in other than optimum locations. The DMS-AV contains a means
to electronically move each speaker’s location. This allows for superior
reproduction of the directional cues available during movie or music
playback. Measure the distance in feet from your listening position to each
speaker. Enter this information into DMS-AV’s on-screen display, or into the
URC Accelerator Application. Default measurement units are feet, but units
may be changed to meters if preferred.
Page 34
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Channel Level
Channel level calibration will allow the equalization of the volume levels of
each speaker to make up for differences in speaker characteristics and
distances from the listener to the speakers. Best results will be achieved
using a Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meter, and an external analog tone or
pink noise generator. Set the SPL Meter to C Weighting and Slow Response.
Place the meter at your listening position and adjust each speaker for an
equal response (An SPL of 75 dB is recommended).
Speaker Crossover (X-Over)
This sets the frequency at which bass tones are filtered from the speaker
channel selected and sent to the subwoofer(s). The crossover point is the
frequency at which the amount of information in the subwoofer and main
speaker(s) is equal. Set this according to the capabilities of the speakers
and/or subwoofer(s). When a crossover frequency for a speaker is set, the
crossover frequency and above is sent to the affected speaker, while the
crossover frequency and below is sent to the subwoofer(s).
Each speaker in the system (except for the subwoofer) has a specific
crossover assigned to it. Each speaker has the ability to have a unique
crossover frequency set for it. While the subwoofer does not have its own
unique crossover, the subwoofer low frequency content is determined by
the crossover settings of all other speakers in the system. All low frequency
material below the crossover frequency set point for each speaker is sent to
the subwoofer(s).
LFE (Dolby/DTS)
This setting is used to increase or decrease the subwoofer level for
multichannel bitstreams that contain an Low Frequency Effects channel. The
subwoofer signal may need to be increased or decreased depending on the
room or installation. Usually this will be set to 0 dB (default). Note that this
effects only the separate LFE (.1) or subwoofer channel available on source
material. There is no effect on the reproduction of normal bass from the
front, center, or surround channels.
Page 35
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Height Gain
The Height Gain applies to the Front Height speakers. This option is
available when the DMS-AV is set to use Front Height speakers. Three
options are available for this setting: Low, Mid and High. The default value
for this
parameter within the DMS-AV is “Mid”. Change this value within the onscreen display, or in URC Accelerator under the sound adjust section.
Dolby Pro Logic II Music Setup
Three unique parameters are available to “shape” the sound of sources
played through the Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode. The parameters
available are:
Panorama
Panorama wraps the sound from the front left and right speakers
around you, sending an image to the surround speakers for an exciting
perspective.
Center Width
Center width lets you gradually spread the center-channel sound into
the front left and right speakers. At its widest setting, all the sound from
the center is mixed into the left and right speakers.
Dimension
Dimension control adjusts the front/surround balance to suit your
listening preference.
Night Mode
When the Night Mode option is enabled the sound level of compatible
digital audio soundtracks will be dynamically compressed. Dynamic range
compression increases low-level audio content such as dialog, making it
easier to hear at low volume levels while at the same time reducing the
intensity of higher-level audio content.
Dynamic range control (Night Mode) enables you to customize audio
playback to reduce peak volume levels (no loud surprises) while
experiencing all the details in the soundtrack, enabling late-night viewing of
high-energy surround sound without disturbing others.
Available options for night mode are: Auto, Off, Low, Medium and High,
depending on the incoming bitstream type. Adjust this parameter in the
Sound Adjust section of the on-screen display, or the URC Accelerator
Application.

DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Automated Speaker Setup
All of the manual room correction described in the previous section can be
accomplished through an automated process, within the on-screen display,
or the URC Accelerator Application. Included with each DMS-AV is a
setup microphone, which when connected to the DMS-AV Setup Mic input,
can be used to perform an automated room correction routine. The internal
DSP of the DMS-AV shall execute a series of test tones to each speaker in
the installation, which will then automatically determine each speaker
level, correct speaker distance setting and crossover frequency. These
settings will be automatically saved within the DMS-AV firmware, and URC
Accelerator, if applicable.
The Set up Microphone included should be the only
microphone used in the automatic setup configuration.
Input Settings
Each of the 12 inputs on the DMS-AV supports parameters that allow for
customization for each input and their function.
Input Rename
Each input may be renamed to better de scribe its function. The maximum
amount of characters that can be used to rename an input is eight.
The input name can be set in the DMS-AV on-screen display, or
within the URC Acceler ator Application.
Digital Audio Assign
(Available for all inputs except Phono) – Each input may have their
audio input reassigned to any of the two optical digital or coaxial
digital (S/PDIF) inputs. The two optical digital inputs are named
IN A and IN B, and the two coaxial digital inputs are named IN C
and IN D. Digital audio assign options may also be used to reassign
HDMI audio, in the case that a DVI input is used, requiring the use
of a separate audio input.
Page 42
DMS-AV HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER
Analog Audio Assign
(Available for HDMI inputs only) - Analog audio assign options may also be
used to reassign HDMI audio to any of the line level analog audio inputs
(IN 1through IN 6).
Video Scaling
This allows setting of a desired output resolution per input selected by the
DMS-AV. All inputs, except phono, support a discrete video output
resolution mode. Also available is an “HDMI Bypass” mode, which is
essentially a mode that transfers the native resolution of the selected source
to the display monitor or projector, via the DMS-AV’s HDMI output.
A/V Sync
This setting allows correction for the native Lip-Sync A/V delay of the
connected video monitor, and the selected source. One video frame
is approximately 17 mS delay. A/V Sync allows for up to 200 mS of
A/V Sync correction. Modern HD monitors may have up to 5 frames
of perceivable delay.
DC Trigger 1
This setting allows DC Trigger 1 to be set to trigger a 12V DC signal
from DC Trigger 1 when a specific input is selected.
DC Trigger 2
This setting allows DC Trigger 2 to be set to trigger a 12V DC signal
from DC Trigger 2 when a specific input is selected.
Linking Audio Zones with the DMS-AV
