RGB output
Place the DV88PLUS on a level, firm surface and ensure that
there is adequate ventilation for the unit.
RGB output is available on both the SCART and Component/RGB
sockets and offers picture quality equal to component video.
To view the pictures from the DVD player you need to connect
one of its video outputs to a TV, monitor or projector.
The DV88PLUS has five video outputs:





Component video
RGB
S-video
Composite video
Progressive scan component (525P(480P)) video.
You only need to use one type of video from the list. Choose a
type that your TV supports.
NOTE: If your TV supports none of these types of video then
it’s time to purchase a new TV!
Note that you may connect equipment such as AV receivers
in the signal path between the DVD player and the TV, so long
as that equipment supports the correct type of video signal.
For instructions on how to connect AV equipment, consult the
manual for that equipment.
Component video
Use three phono cables to connect the Component Y, Pb, Pr
outputs of the DVD player to the Y, Pb, Pr inputs of the TV.
Ensure that the cables are suitable for video use and that they
are approximately the same length. Some component video
interfaces are labelled in different ways: see the table below if
your TV’s component inputs are not labelled ‘Y, Pb, Pr’.

Use appropriate cables to connect either the SCART connector
or RGB phonos to the TV. Note that if you are using RGB output
via phono connectors, you will also need to use COMPOSITE as
a sync signal.
If you are using a SCART connection to your TV, it is best to
mute your TV’s speakers because SCART also carries stereo
audio signals; this prevents audio coming through the TV.
AV control: The SCART output has a control signal that switches
your TV to its SCART input when the DV88PLUS is turned on. It
will also signal to wide screen TVs the correct aspect ratio (16:
9 or 4:3), provided these features are supported by the TV.
S-Video
The S-Video output (also known as S-VHS or Y/C) is commonly
supported by TVs worldwide. Connect the S VIDEO output of the
DVD player to the S-Video input of the TV using an appropriate
cable.
Composite video
If your TV only offers a composite input (sometimes labelled
CVBS or just ‘video’), connect this to the COMPOSITE video
output of the DVD player using a phono cable suitable for video
use.
NOTE: The DVD player can only support Component video
or RGB video at any one time. This is specified in the setup
menu. If you use either of these outputs with an incorrect
menu setting, the picture will be coloured in a strange way.
Similar effects result from cross connection of the three
signals.
If you use component video outputs, you must ensure that
the SCART socket is not used. Similarly, if the SCART socket
is used, disconnect the component video leads.
Progressive video 525P (480P)
If your television is capable of accepting a progressively
scanned video signal, you may wish to use the progressive
video output from the DV88PLUS.
To connect the progressive output of the DV88PLUS to your TV,
follow the instructions above for connecting component video. If
you are unsure whether your TV can accept progressive video,
please refer to its instruction manual or consult your dealer.
NTSC progressive scan output is available whenever the
DV88PLUS is playing 525 (NTSC) source material
Connecting to a power supply
Wrong plug?
Check that the plug supplied with the unit fits your supply and
that your mains supply voltage agrees with the voltage setting
(115V or 230V) indicated on the rear panel of the unit.
If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different, consult
your Arcam dealer or Arcam Customer Support on
+44 (0)1223 203203.
Mains lead
At the time of writing this handbook, PAL progressive video is in
the process of being standardized, but is not allowed currently
under Macrovision regulations. We hope to be able to enable
this in the future.
The appliance is normally supplied with a moulded mains plug
already fitted to the lead. If for any reason the plug needs to
be removed, it must be disposed of immediately and securely,
as it is a potential shock hazard when inserted into the mains
socket. Should you require a new mains lead, contact your
Arcam dealer.
The progressive scan output from the DV88PLUS reverts to
interlaced output when PAL (625) material is being played.
Plugging in
PAL progressive video
Connecting Digital audio
If you have an external surround sound decoder, receiver or
D-A converter that you wish to use with the DVD player, then
you will need to connect it using either a coaxial or optical lead.
These digital outputs provide PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS or MPEG
multi-channel audio, depending on the source material. It is also
possible to set the digital output always to output 2-channel
PCM (stereo mix-down) via the setup menu.
Push the plug (IEC line socket) of the power cable supplied with
the unit into the socket (POWER INLET) in the back of the unit.
Make sure it is pushed in firmly.
Put the plug on the other end of the cable into your power
supply socket and switch the socket on.
If possible, use the coaxial connection as this may offer slightly
better performance. Connect the coax output of the DVD player
to the digital audio coax input of the decoder/D-A converter
or receiver using a phono cable designed for digital audio
interconnection.
Alternatively, connect the optical output of the DVD player to the
optical input of the decoder/D-A converter or receiver using a
TOSLINK optical lead.
Connecting Analogue audio
If you wish to use the high quality D-A converters of the DVD
player, then you will need to use the analogue audio outputs of
the DVD player.
Two pairs of outputs are provided (these are identical), labelled
L (left) and R (right). Connect one of these pairs to the input
of your amplifier using a suitable pair of interconnect cables.
If required, the second set of audio outputs can be used to
connect to a second amplifier setup for ‘multi-room’ use, or
routed to a tape recorder for making recordings.
Remote Control input
The REMOTE IN input can be used to pass RC5 codes to the
DV88PLUS if it is installed in a position (or system) where infrared
cannot be used.

Obtaining a TV picture
Ensure the TV is switched on and that you have selected the
correct TV input. You should see the following image. This is
the image that the DVD player gives whenever there is no disc
playing.
OSD Language
This setting controls the language of the messages displayed
on the On-Screen Display (OSD). The default language is English,
with five other languages supported.
Note that this setting does not change the language of any
information displayed on the front panel, which is always in
English.
DVD menu
Some DVD discs support a number of different languages
for the DVD disc menu (the menu present on the DVD itself).
This setting allows the preferred language to be specified. For
example, if this item is set to ‘French’ then disc menus will be
displayed in French, where supported by the disc.
To protect your screen from damage caused by persistent
static images, a ‘screen saver’ facility activates after a few
minutes of inactivity.
Using the Set-up menus
If you have not already done so, now would be a good time to
fit the two AAA batteries in the remote handset, taking care to
get them the correct way round. Select ‘DVD’ using the CD/DVD
button on the remote control.
Ensure that no disc is playing and press SETUP on the remote
control: a menu appears on the TV screen.
The Set-up menu comprises four pages of options. The top line
of each page shows the page title, indicating the nature of the
settings controlled by the page. To make a change, first use
the UP/DOWN controls to highlight the item. Once the item to
be changed has been highlighted, press RIGHT to open the list
of options for the menu item. The current option for the menu
item is shown highlighted; the UP/DOWN controls can be used
to select the new option, then pressing LEFT confirms the
selection and closes the option list.
To change page, highlight the page bar at the top of the screen
and use the LEFT/RIGHT controls to move through the pages.
In the ‘Setup’ menu, the UP/DOWN controls ‘wrap around’, so
that with the highlight bar at the bottom of the screen, pressing
DOWN takes the bar to the top of the screen.

4:3 Letterbox Use this setting if you have a conventional 4:3
TV, and you prefer to view wide screen movies
in letterbox format (with black bars at the top
and bottom)
4:3 Panscan Use this setting if you have a conventional 4:3
TV, and you prefer to view wide screen movies
in Pan & Scan format (cropping the sides of the

as to fill the screen.
If you have a 4:3 TV and you have set a preference for Panscan,
it does not mean you will always see movies in this format,
since the Panscan display must be supported on that disc.
TV System
This is set at the factory to be appropriate for the type of TV
used in your country. Should you need to change this setting,
the options are explained below.
Auto
NTSC
The video output is taken from that recorded on
the disc. When no disc is playing, the logo screen
is displayed using the standard of the last disc
played.
NTSC is always used as the video standard. Note
that PAL discs are converted to NTSC, but this
causes some reduction in the quality of the video
output (and may cause the video to become
‘jerky’). This is the best setting to use if your TV
can accept only NTSC video (this is generally the
case in North America); better results are obtained
by using ‘Auto’, but your TV must be able to
support PAL.
PAL is always used as the video standard. Note
that NTSC discs are converted to PAL, but this
causes some reduction in the quality of the video
output (and may cause the video to become
‘jerky’). Better results will be obtained by using
‘Auto’, but your TV must be able to support NTSC.
The video output will always be interlaced (standard
definition video). Use this setting if your display
device does not support progressive scan.
The component video output will switch to
progressive scan mode whenever the output
standard is NTSC (525). This would be whenever
an NTSC disc is played, or whenever ‘TV System’
is set to NTSC. The video output will revert to
interlaced (standard definition) for PAL (625)
modes. Use this setting only if your display device
supports progressive scan.
NOTE: When progressive scan is active, the component
video output will be in progressive mode, and the other video
outputs (composite and S-Video) are muted.
Since progressive scan must be component, not RGB, the
‘HQ video setting’ will be forced to component if progressive
scan is enabled.
Not all displays support progressive scan. If you accidentally
enable progressive scan and your display does not support
it, you will be unable to view the picture from the DVD player,
including the on screen display required to change the video
settings. To revert to interlaced mode without using the on
screen menus, press and hold the STOP button on the front
panel at any time. The video mode will revert to interlaced
mode after the button has been held in for five seconds.
HQ Video (High Quality Video)
This setting controls the type of video given out on the
Component and SCART video outputs. It is set at the factory to
be appropriate for the type of TV used in your country, so it is
best not to change it. If it gets set incorrectly then the picture
shown on the TV will have strange colouring.
Component
The video output on both the Component video (3
phonos) and SCART is Y, Pb, Pr component video.
RGB SCART
The video output on both the Component video (3
phonos) and SCART is RGB. Note that if you are
using RGB output via phono connectors, you will
also need to use COMPOSITE as a sync signal.
NTSC black (Pedestal)
This setting controls the ‘pedestal’ signal or black level when the
NTSC video standard is used. Note that it does not affect PAL
video in any way.
0 IRE
This removes the pedestal from NTSC video. This
setting should be used in Japan, and also if you are
using RGB video, whatever the country.
7.5 IRE This is the standard pedestal level that should be
used in all countries that use NTSC video, with the
exception of Japan.

Password
The password setting works in conjunction with the rating
setting (the next menu item) to provide a means of limiting
content playback by children (parental control).
You will see there are four dashes and a padlock symbol.
Normally the padlock symbol will be open and this means the
parental control is unlocked. Under this condition the rating
setting may be freely changed.
To lock the parental control, choose a suitable four digit number.
Don’t forget your password as you will need to know it to unlock
the player. Highlight ‘Password’ and enter your four digit number
using the numerical keys on the handset.
When all four digits have been entered, press OK on the
handset. The player is now locked and you will not be able to
change the rating setting.
To unlock the parental control, highlight ‘Password’ and enter
your four digit number, followed by OK.
NOTE: You can change the password any time you lock the
player.
Rating
The rating setting is used in conjunction with the password to
restrict the content of DVD titles that may be played. To change
this setting the parental control must be unlocked.
The term ‘Parental level’ refers to a standard defined for
DVDs. DVD movies may have a parental level between 1 and
8. Note that this only applies to DVD video discs that have the
parental level correctly implemented. Some DVD video titles do
not respond to parental control settings, and Video CDs have no
mechanism for parental control.
View All Titles of all parental levels will be played
No Adult Only material of parental level 4 or less may be
played. This corresponds to the MPAA (Motion
Picture Association of America) rating of PG-13
Kids Only Only material of parental level 1 may be played.
This corresponds to MPAA rating G.
Once the rating level has been set, DVD titles with parental level
higher than the setting will not play. Sometimes DVD video titles
may be produced that have the parental level set for specific
scenes, so a disc will play but skip or substitute certain scenes.
Completing the set-up
Complete the setup procedure by pressing SETUP on the
remote control. This saves all the data and closes the setup
menu. You can press SETUP at any time while in a menu to quit
from it.
To return to the setup menu at any time, ensure that there is no
disc playing and press the SETUP button.

panel, use PAUSE for ‘up’, STOP for ‘down’ , for ‘right’, for
‘left’ and PLAY for ‘OK’.
Most DVDs begin playing automatically, but some titles begin by
displaying a menu. Select the menu item ‘Play movie’ (or similar)
using the cursor pad, then press OK to start playback.
For discs that do not play automatically (including CDs and
VCDs), press PLAY.
Note that when playing DVDs, the drive mechanism operates
at much higher speeds compared to CDs and so may produce
more noise when loading and playing initial chapters.

Since we have a number of chapters all from the same title, it
would be a lot of work to have to enter the title number each
time. Press on the remote handset. Notice that the player
assumes that the title number remains the same for this entry
as for the previous one. Enter the remaining chapter numbers,
pressing after each one. (Note that pressing at the bottom
of a column places the cursor at the top of the next column.)
Next, we want to specify all of title 2. For this, highlight the
title position of the next entry (entry 8) and enter the number
2, indicating title 2. Highlight the chapter position and, without
entering any number, press . The player fills in the text ‘All’ to
indicate that all the chapters in title 2 will be played.

together with those for MP3 files on CD-ROM. The operation
for audio-CDs and MP3 discs is very similar. MP3 discs can
have directories and sub-directories. Audio-CDs do not have a

below.
The current track number and the total number of tracks
in this directory (for MP3 discs), or on the whole disc (for
audio-CDs).
The playback time of the current track, and the total
playback time.
For MP3 discs, this area shows the current directory.
‘Up’ – for MP3 discs, selecting this button changes
directory to one level above the current one. This button
is not shown for audio-CDs, or if the current directory is
at the top level.
‘PAF’ – Play All Files on the disc. Starting from the first
valid file/track, all valid files/tracks on the disc are
played, in the order found.
‘PD’ – Play Directory. (MP3 discs only). Starting from the
first valid file in the current directory, all the (valid) files in
the current directory are played.
The names of the tracks in this directory. For audio-CDs,
the text ‘Track 1’, etc., is shown here. For MP3 discs, the
text shown here is based on the file name of the track.
When playing MP3 discs, the full name of the file being
played is displayed here (subject to screen space).
When playing MP3 discs, tag information from MP3 files
is displayed here, if present on the disc.
Helpful messages to the user are displayed here. When
the disc is loaded, the PAF button ( ) is highlighted.

When playing audio-CDs or MP3 discs, the player can be in one
of three modes:
Browse mode: the user is free to navigate around the disc
directory structure (while playback is stopped). Valid files/tracks
in each directory (audio-CD tracks or files that can be played)
are displayed on the screen. Pressing PLAY while the cursor
is on a valid file/track will start playback from that point,
continuing to the end of the disc. Alternatively, the ‘PD’ or ‘PAF’
buttons can be used to start playback.
Programme mode: Press PROG on the remote control to
enter ‘Programme’ mode to choose the order in which the files/
tracks are played. Playback must be stopped first. ‘Programme’
mode operates differently for audio-CDs and MP3 discs, and is
explained on page 15.
Playlist mode: The player is in this mode when a programmed
sequence of files/tracks is being played. No navigation of the
disc may be performed in this mode; the player starts at the
beginning of the programmed playlist and plays through to the
end.
Browsing the disc (Browse mode)
The screen shown above is the disc navigator screen, in this
example showing a CD-R containing MP3 files. The following
items can be identified:

2
Player mode
By default, the disc navigator is in ‘Browse’ mode. In this mode,
the user can navigate around the disc (using the cursor pad
for direction and ‘OK’ to select an option). When a file/track
is highlighted, the tag information for that file (if available)
is displayed in the lower portion of the screen. Use the ‘Up’
button to move to a higher-level directory; to enter a lower-level
directory, press OK when the directory name is highlighted.
At any time, press PLAY or OK to begin playback from the
file/track highlighted currently. Navigation around the current
directory is possible during playback, but playback stops
automatically if you attempt to navigate out of the current
directory. Please note the following:

Fast forward and fast rewind do not work with MP3
playback.
Skipping forward past the end of a directory with MP3
discs causes playback to continue from the next directory
containing valid files. Skip-back can be performed only as
far as the beginning of the current directory.
Directory trees may be up to 10 directories deep.
Only sample rates of 44.1kHz and 48kHz are supported
for MP3 files.
Programmed playback (Audio CDs)
Programmed playback (MP3)
