Placement
Place the RDV-1045 on a surface that is level,
dry and neither too hot nor too cold (between
41˚F and 95˚F, 5˚C and 35˚C). Do not place the
unit where it will be exposed to direct sunlight.
Avoid locations that are dusty. Do not place
the unit too close to the television set. Do not

Composite Input TV Connection
Connect the COMPOSITE VIDEO e output to
the composite video input of your TV. Connect
the ANALOG AUDIO = outputs to the audio
inputs of your TV. A cable for these connections
is supplied.
If your TV has a single monaural audio input
instead of a pair of stereo inputs, you need to use
a “Y” cable adapter to connect the two output
channels of the RDV-1045 to the single input.
You can improve the sound quality of the
system by connecting the audio outputs to a
separate hi-fi audio system. (See the following
section.)
S-Video Input TV Connection
If your TV has an S-video input, you should
connect it to the S-VIDEO e output of
RDV-1045 using an S-video cable. This will
produce better picture quality.
NOTEs: Do not connect an S-video cord
and a component video cord at the same
time. The may prevent proper playback
Connect the DVD player directly to a TV
or a monitor. Do not route through a video
cassette recorder (VCR). Otherwise picture
distortion may occur during playback. Connecting the DVD player to a VCR-built-in-TV
may also cause picture distortion.
Component Input TV Connection
If your TV has component video signal input
jacks you will get better video performance by
using the COMPONENT VIDEO q output
jacks of the RDV-1045. The required cable is
not provided. Be sure to connect the “Y” output
to the “Y” input, “PB” output to the “PB” input,
and the “PR” output to the “PR” input.
NOTES: When using the Component Video
outputs do not connect an S-Video cable.
The component signal inputs on some TV’s
have BNC type connectors. (BNC connectors
are coaxial connectors that have keyed locking collars.) In such instances adapters or a
special cable may be needed.
When the Component Video outputs are
connected to an NTSC/PAL television you
may be able to use the Progressive Scan
mode of the RDV-1045 which produces a
picture with less flicker. See the P.SCAN section of this manual.

Connecting to Audio Equipment
with a Digital Input
You can enhance the sound quality by connecting the OPTICAL DIGITAL OUTPUT - of the
RDV-1045 to the digital input of an amplifier
or signal processor by using an optional digital
cable. The digital stereo audio signal from a
disc is directly transferred. If you connect the
unit to a Dolby Digital or DTS decoder or an
amplifier with built-in decoder by using an
optional digital cable, you can enjoy highquality surround sound.
When you make the digital connection, also
make the analog connection = , because,
depending on the disc type, no audio may be
reproduced from the DIGITAL OUTPUT.
With the digital connection, the Preference menu
settings for COMPRESSION and DOWN MIX
are disabled. Settings for these items must be
made from the decoder.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT
DIGITAL SIGNAL CONNECTION:
The Digital Audio Output setting in the Audio Preferences on-screen display must be set so
the digital output of the RDV-1045 is compatible with the digital input of the component it is
connected to. If this preference setting is not done correctly, loud noise may be generated which can damage the speakers. Before using the RDV-1045 with a digital signal
connection be sure the proper type of Digital Audio Output has been selected. See the Audio
Menu information in the Preferences Setting section of this manual.
NOTE: Bending an optical digital cable at a sharp angle can damage it. Use caution when
handling optical cables.
Some optical digital cables have a protective cover over the end of the plug. Be sure to remove any covers before attempting to connect optical cables.
Connecting to an Audio
Amplifier or Receiver
You will get better sound quality if you connect
the audio outputs of the RDV-1045 to a high
quality amplifier or receiver and use component
loudspeakers, rather than those built into the
television.
Connect the AUDIO OUTPUTS = of the
RDV-1045 to any high level input (such as AUX,
DVD, CD, etc.) of an amplifier or receiver.

Connecting the Power Cord RR-DV99 Remote Control
AC Input
0
It is best to plug the RDV-1045 directly into a
2-pin polarized wall outlet. Avoid the use of
extension cords.
Your RDV-1045 will automatically configure
itself for the proper AC line voltage ranging
from 110 volts to 240 volts at 50/60Hz. No
setting is required to match the unit to your
local voltage.
Plug the supplied cord into the AC INPUT
receptacle on the back of the unit. After all
connections have been made, plug the cord
into an appropriate AC wall outlet.
NOTE: If you are away for an extended
period of time, it is a sensible precaution to
unplug your audio/video components
Observe the following precautions:
• Do not connect or disconnect the power cord
with wet hands.
• Disconnect the power cord if you are not
going to use the unit for a long time.
• When unplugging the player from the wall
outlet, always pull the plug, not the power
cord.
• Disconnect the power cord before cleaning
the unit.
• Disconnect the power cord before moving
the unit.
• Do not damage, alter, twist or pull the power
cord. This may damage the cord and cause
fire, electric shock, or other accidents. Contact
your authorized Rotel dealer and get a new
power cord if the cord is damaged.
• Do not put anything heavy, on the unit, or the
power cord, as this may cause fire, electric
shock, or other accidents.
Installing the Batteries
The battery compartment is located on the back
of the remote control unit. Place three AAA
batteries in the remote control according to
the polarity markings (“+” and “–”) inside the
compartment and on the batteries. Replace the
battery compartment cover.
The batteries will last about six months with
normal use. If the functions of the remote control
become erratic, replace the batteries.
Precautions for the safe use of
batteries
Observe the following precautions for the safe
use of batteries. If they are used improperly
their life will be shortened, they may burst or
their contents may leak.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control
if it will not be used for a long period of
time.
• Remove dead batteries and dispose of them
properly.
• Never leave dead batteries lying around.
Do not take them apart, mix them with other
refuse, or throw them into an incinerator.
• Never touch liquid that has leaked out of a
battery.
• Do not mix new and old batteries, or batteries
of different types, when replacing them.
Using the Remote Control
When using the remote control point it at
the front panel of the RDV-1045. The remote
control may not always properly operate the
RDV-1045 if it used from too far away or if
you are at too great of an angle relative to
the front panel.
The remote control may also fail to properly
operate the RDV-1045 if the remote control
sensor 3 on the front panel is exposed to
strong light, such a sunlight.
For best results there must be a direct, unobstructed path from the remote control to the
front panel sensor.
Remote Control Numeric Buttons
For many operations selections are made using
the RR-DV99 NUMERIC BUTTONS 0 . The
examples below show how to select various
numbered items.

warped, or has unusual disc or recording
characteristics, it may take considerable time
for the RDV-1045 to read the disc contents.
In some instances the RDV-1045 may not be
able to play certain discs.
When playing some DVD VIDEOs, DVD
AUDIOs, VCDs or SVCDs the operation of
the RDV-1045 may be different from what is
described in this manual. This is due to the
disc programming and disc structure, not a
malfunction of this system.

Disc Care and Handling
Initial Setup
Proper handling and storage of discs is very
important. If a disc gets dirty, dusty, scratched
or warped, playback, sound and picture will
be adversely affected.
Turning On the RDV-1045
Handling
• To avoid damage do not touch the surface
of the disc.
• Do not apply labels or use any adhesive on
either the label side or playback side.
Storing discs
• Keep discs in their cases. If discs are piled
on top of one another without their protective
cases, they can be damaged.
• Do not put discs where they may be exposed
to direct sunlight, or high temperatures or
humidity. Avoid leaving discs in a car!
Cleaning discs
• Wipe with a soft dry cloth, moving from the
center outwards. If a disc is difficult to clean,
wipe with a cloth moistened with water.
• Never use record cleaners, petrol, alcohol
or any anti-static agents.
DVD Video Disc Region Codes
All DVD players and DVD discs have a Region
Code number. This unit only can play back DVD
discs whose Region Code numbers include the
unit’s Region Code, which is indicated on the
region code symbol on the rear panel.
Examples of playable DVD discs for a unit with
Region Code “1”
NOTE: With some DVD and Video CD discs,
you may not be able to control them according
to the instructions described in this manual,
because of the contents of the disc.
If a DVD VIDEO with an improper Region
Code number is loaded, “REGION CODE ERROR!” appears on the TV screen and playback
cannot start.
When the RDV-1045 is connected to a power
outlet the STANDBY indicator 2 on the front
panel is always on. Press the STANDBY 1
button on the front panel, or the POWER button 1 on the remote,
to turn the unit
on and light the display 5.
Turn On Messages
One of the following messages may appear in
the display when the RDV-1045 is turned on:
NOW READING – Appears when the DVD
player is reading the disc information. Do
not try to operate the unit until this message
goes away.
REGION CODE ERROR! – Appears when the
Region Code of a DVD that has been loaded
is not supported by the player.
NO DISC – Appears when no disc is loaded.
OPEN – Appears when the disc tray is opening.
CLOSE – Appears when the disc tray is
closing.
CANNOT PLAY THIS DISC – Appears when
you try to play an unplayable disc.
Setting the Output Signal Type
With the RDV-1045 and the TV turned on, press
the P.SCAN button e on the remote. The The
current video signal type will flash.
If necessary, press the t/u buttons 7\
to select the video signal type suitable for the
TV. Then press ENTER 8. The selected video
signal type is displayed for a short time.
About Output Signals
NTSC is the correct choice for TVs in North
America. PAL TVs are used through most of
the rest of the world.
With either NTSC or PAL TV’s you can select
INTERLACE (“NTSC” or “PAL”) or PROGRESSIVE (“NTSC PROG” or “PAL PROG”). Picture
quality is better with the “PROGRESSIVE”
mode. But only newer, high performance TVs
can accept progressive signals. A progressive
signal is only available from the Component
Output Connectors q so the TV must have
component inputs.
If you are unsure about which setting to use,
contact your authorized Rotel dealer.
Output Signal Notes
• The picture may be distorted for a period
of time after you press ENTER button. This
is not a malfunction of the system.
• Some progressive signal and high-definition
TVs are not fully compatible with this unit.
This will result in an unnatural picture when
playing a DVD VIDEO with progressive scanning. In this case, change the scan mode to
INTERLACE.
• Even if the power cord of the DVD player
is disconnected from the AC outlet or the
power is interrupted, the video signal type
setting is stored.

Caring for the RDV-1045
Disc Structure
Cabinet and Disc Tray Cleaning
DVD VIDEO/DVD VR
Clean the cabinet and disc tray by gently wiping
them with a soft cloth dampened with a small
amount of a neutral detergent diluted with
water. Do not use benzene, thinner or other
organic solvents including disinfectants. These
may cause deformation or discoloring.
Condensation
In s ome situations, condensation (water
drops) can accumulate on the optical lense of
the disc reading mechanism, preventing the
RDV-1045 from working properly. This can
happen when:
• When the RDV-1045 is suddenly moved
from a cold place to a warmer place.
• When the RDV-1045 is in a cool room and
a heating system is turned on.
• When the RDV-1045 is installed in a steamy
or damp space.
In any of these cases, leave the system turned
on for 1 or 2 hours before use.
Locking the Disc Tray
You can lock the disc tray to prevent a loaded
disc from being ejected.
While the RDV-1045 is off, press and hold
the . STOP t button then press the OPEN/
CLOSE o button. “LOCKED” will appear in
the display window. Repeat the procedure to
unlock the disc tray. Then “UNLOCKED” will
appear in the display window.
A DVD Video disc consists of “titles” and each
title may be divided into “chapters”.
A DVD VR disc consists of “original programs”
or “play lists” and each original program/play
list may be divided into “chapters”.
This system simplifies the hierarchical construction of a disc and manages folders by
“groups”. This system can recognize up to 4
000 tracks/files in a disc. Also, the system can
recognize up to 150 tracks/files per group and
up to 99 groups in a disc. Since the system
ignores tracks/files with numbers exceeding
150 and groups with numbers exceeding 99,
these cannot be played back.

DVD AUDIO
A DVD Audio disc consists of “groups” and
each group may be divided into “tracks”.
VCD/SVCD/CD
VCD, SVCD and CD consist of “tracks”. In
general, each track has its own track number.
(On some discs, each track may also be further
divided by indexes.)

MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF/
MPEG1/MPEG2 Discs
On an MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF/MPEG1/
MPEG2 disc, each still picture (material) is
recorded as a track/file. Tracks/files are usually grouped into a folder. Folders can also
include other folders, creating hierarchical
folder layers.

Notes on MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF
discs and files
• A disc may not be played back, or reading
it may take a long time depending on its
recording conditions or properties.
• The time needed for reading varies with the
number of groups or tracks (files) recorded
on the disc.
• If a character other than single byte English
characters is used in the file name of an
MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF file, the track/file
name will not be displayed correctly.
• The order of tracks/groups displayed on the
MP3/WMA control screen, and the order of
files/groups displayed on the JPEG control
screen may be different from that of files/
folders displayed on a computer monitor
screen.
• A commercially available MP3/WMA disc
may be played back in an order different
from that indicated on the label attached to
the disc.
• Playing back an MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF disc
may take a long time. The elapsed time is not
displayed until playback starts. The elapsed
time may also not be displayed correctly.
• For an MP3/WMA file, a disc with a sampling
frequency of 44.1 kHz and transmission rate
of 128 kbps is recommended.
• This system can play back a baseline JPEG
file, excluding monochromatic JPEG files.
• This system can play back JPEG data taken
with a digital camera conforming to the DCF
(Design Rule for Camera File System) standard (when a function such as the automatic
image rotation function of a digital camera
is applied, the data no longer complies with
the DCF standard, so the image may not be
displayed).
• If data has been processed, edited and restored with computer image editing software,
the data may not be displayed.
• This system cannot play back animations
such as MOTION2 JPEG, still images (TIFF
etc.) other than JPEG, or image data with
sound.
• The resolution of 640 x 480 pixels is recommended for JPEG files. If a file has been
recorded at a resolution of more than 640
x 480 pixels, display may take a long time.
An image with a resolution of more than
8192 x 7680 pixels cannot be displayed.
• The system supports ASF files recorded with
the maximum bit rate of 384 kbps and an
audio coder decoder of G.726.
• The maximum size of the playback picture
is 352 x 288 pixels (CIF).
Notes on MPEG1/MPEG2 discs and
files
• The stream structure of MPEG1/MPEG2
discs and files should conform to MPEG
system/program stream.
• 720 x 576 pixels (25 fps)/720 x 480 pixels
(30 fps) is recommended for the highest
resolution.
• This system also supports the resolutions of
352 x 576/480 x 576/352 x 288 pixels
(25 fps) and 352 x 480/ 480 x 480/352
x 240 pixels (30 fps).
• The profile and level should be MP@ML (Main
Profile at Main Level)/SP@ML (Simple Profile
at Main Level)/ MP@LL (Main Profile at Low
Level).
• Audio streams should conform to MPEG1
Audio Layer- 2 or MPEG2 Audio Layer-2.
Caution for DualDisc playback:
The Non-DVD side of a “DualDisc” does not
comply with the “Compact Disc Digital Audio”
standard. Therefore, the use of Non-DVD
