Positioning the unit
RGB output
Place the DV89 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.
Connecting outputs: 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 DV89 has five video outputs:





Component video
RGB
S-video
Composite video
Progressive scan component 525P (480P) and
625P (576P) video.
You only need to use one type of video from the list. Choose a
type that your TV supports.
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’.

RR
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 do not wish to use the speakers in your TV to provide
audio output from the DVD player, it is best to mute your TV’s
speakers when using a SCART connection to your TV. This is
because SCART also carries stereo audio signals.
AV control: The SCART output has a control signal that switches
your TV to its SCART input when the DV89 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
If your television is capable of accepting a progressively
scanned video signal, you may wish to use the progressive
video output from the DV89.
To connect the progressive output of the DV89 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Plugging in
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.
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 stereo 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.
For 6-channel material, an additional four outputs are provided.
Together with one pair of the 2-channel output connections,
these should be connected (using suitable interconnect cables)
to the ‘multi-channel’ analogue input of your home cinema
processor (the multi-channel input may be labelled ‘DVDA’ or
‘SACD’). In this case, the additional 2-channel output pair may
be used for some other function, as suggested above (although
when playing 6-channel material, only the left and right channels
of this material would be heard).
Remote Control input
The REMOTE IN input can be used to pass RC5 codes to the
DV89 if it is installed in a position (or system) where infrared
cannot be used.

Configuring your DVD player
Introduction
Operational setup
Congratulations – if you have followed the installation
instructions then the required connections to other equipment
will have been made. It is now essential to go through an
initial set up procedure to ensure the DVD player is configured
correctly for use.

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 three 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. (To stop the screen saver, press STOP on
the front panel or remote control.)
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 seven 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.

choice.
Remote type
TV System
This informs the player which type of remote control you
are using, so that the player can take into account the slight
differences between the remote types. For ARCAM remote
controls, the remote type is always written on the front of the
remote control, normally at the bottom of the unit.
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.
CR-314
This selects the grey ARCAM CR-314 remote
control
CR-80
This selects the black ARCAM CR-80 learning
remote control
CR-9000 This selects the black ARCAM CR-9000 learning

OSD (On Screen Display)
This setting controls the ‘pop up’ messages that appear on
screen.
On
Pop-up messages are enabled
Off
No pop-up messages, only menus when required.
Certain messages, such as ‘No Disc’ are always shown
regardless of how this is set.
Priority
Some DVD discs show different material, or have different
behaviour, depending on whether the disc is played on a DVDvideo or on a DVD-audio player. The “Priority” option allows
you to configure the DV89 to be (primarily) one or other of the
player types.
Note that, although this setting may be changed after a disc
has been loaded into the DV89, this setting does not take
effect unless the disc is re-loaded (or a different disc is played).

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.

Progressive
Off
The video output will always be interlaced
(standard definition video). Use this setting if your
display device does not support progressive scan.
Auto (525) 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.
On (625/525) The component video output will output
progressive scan video for both PAL and NTSC
discs. Use this setting only if your TV supports
progressive scan in both PAL and NTSC formats.
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.
TV shape
This needs to be set correctly for the type of TV you have and
the type of display you prefer.
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 image)
16:9
Use this setting if you have a wide screen (16:
9) TV. Material in 16:9 format is displayed so
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.
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, open the drawer, then
press and hold the STOP button on the front panel. 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
should not be necessay 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.
The options available are as follows:
Bitstream
+ 6 Ch.
The digital output is “Bitstream” (as described
above). The analogue audio will comprise up
to six channels of output, depending on the
source material, the speaker configuration
(see the “Speaker Setup” section) and the “Pro
Logic” setting (see below).
Bitstream
+ 2 Ch.
The digital output is “Bitstream” (as described
above). The analogue audio will comprise
a 2-channel stereo down-mix of the source
material.
PCM
+ 2 Ch.
The digital output is “Stereo PCM” (as
described above). The analogue audio will
comprise a 2-channel stereo down-mix of the
source material.
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
7.5 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.
This is the standard pedestal level that should be
used in all countries that use NTSC video, with the
exception of Japan.

When the “Stereo PCM” digital output is
selected, all audio material played is downmixed to stereo and output as stereo PCM.
Use this setting if you have an external D-A
converter that supports only 2-channel PCM.
Since the digital and analogue outputs are closely related, the
analogue audio output reflects the digital output type selected.
If two-channel output is selected via the “Audio” item, no
Pro Logic decoding will ever be performed.
If the player is configured to have only two speakers
connected to it (described in the next section), then no
Pro Logic decoding will be performed.
MP3 files, together with DVD-audio discs and any 96kHz
(or above) material, are not suitable for Pro Logic
decoding and will never be processed.
Audio delay
This item is not applicable for the DV89, and should not be
changed.
Down-sample
This needs to be set correctly if you are using an external audio
decoder, receiver or D-A converter.
Max 96K Choose this option if your external audio decoder
is able to process digital audio with a sample rate
of up to 96kHz, or if you are not using the digital
audio outputs. This is the maximum sample rate
present on DVD-video discs.
Max 48K Choose this option if your external audio decoder
is unable to process digital audio with a sample

Surround L/R This is the setting for the ‘Surround’ speakers
(normally next-to or behind the user).
Subwoofer
This is used to indicate whether a subwoofer
is connected.
For each speaker, the player can be configured to send either
audio with the full frequency range of the source material, or
with a reduced frequency range. The reduced frequency range
option is used normally when ‘satellite’ speakers are used for
the surround channels; these cannot handle low frequency
information. Full frequency speakers are commonly called
‘Large’ speakers, with reduced-range speakers given the name
‘Small’. Low frequency information is re-routed from ‘small’
speakers to ‘large’ speakers, or to the subwoofer (depending
on the speaker configuration).
NOTE:
1. Any speaker that is not connected should be identified
by selecting ‘Not Present’ for that speaker.
2. Although the DV89 is very flexible in the speaker
configurations it can handle, some restrictions have
been applied. For example, if no subwoofer is present,
then it is not possible to configure the Front speakers
to be ‘Small’ since there would be nowhere to redirect
the low frequency information.
The relative positioning of speakers within a room (particularly
a large room) may mean that sound from some speakers
arrives at the listener later than sound from others. By altering
the delay settings for the different speakers, this difference in
arrival time can be reduced or eliminated.
When setting the delay, it should be imagined that the listener
is sitting in a circle of the speakers; the delay indicates the
distance of the speaker from the listener.
Measurement Units
Your DV89 allows you to choose the measurement units that
you feel most comfortable with: metres or feet.
Delays
Delays for the front, centre and surround speakers can be
set using the associated sliders. A delay may be necessary
for a speaker set if those speakers are further away from
the listener than the others – specifying the different speaker
distances will cause a slight delay to be added to the output of
the closest speakers so that the sound from all the speakers
will arrive at the listener at the same time.
Stereo+Sub
This setting is relevant to 2-channel source material only (such
as CDs). It controls whether the low frequency information is
redirected to the subwoofer, or not.
None
No redirection of low-frequency information occurs;
all the audio is sent to the Front speakers.
Crossover Low-frequency information is redirected to the
subwoofer, with the remaining (higher-frequency)
information sent to the Front speakers.
Duplicate All the audio is sent to the Front speakers.
In addition, the low-frequency information is
duplicated to the subwoofer.

The relative sensitivity (volume) of different speakers can lead
to some speakers sounding disproportionately loud or quiet,
relative to others in the system. The trims setting of your DV89
can help to address this inbalance.
Test Noise
Setting this item to ‘On’ causes pink noise to be generated
from the speaker indicated by the on-screen highlight. The
noise is at the volume indicated by the slider for the speaker.
Setting this to ‘On’ may be useful in ensuring that the relative
volume for each speaker is the same.
Note that this setting is set automatically to ‘Off’ on exit from
this menu page.
Trims
Trims for all the speakers can be set using the associated
sliders. These settings are useful if the speakers have different
sensitivities (and so have different volumes for the same input
levels).
Subwoofer/Stereo+Sub trims
Both the ‘Subwoofer’ and the ‘Stereo+Sub’ trims control the
subwoofer trim setting. ‘Subwoofer’ is the trim used when
multi-channel material is being played; ‘Stereo+Sub’ is the
subwoofer trim used with 2-channel material.

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.

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.

Pausing playback
Press PAUSE on the front panel or on the remote control to
pause playback. To resume playback, press PLAY on the front
panel or on the handset.
Stopping playback
Press the STOP button on the front panel or
control to stop playback.
on the remote
When playing a DVD, pressing STOP once performs a ‘resume
stop’. If you now press PLAY, playback resumes from the point
it was stopped.
If you press STOP twice, this is a ‘complete stop’, and playback
resumes from the beginning of the disc.
Front panel menu navigation
Should you need to navigate a disc or title menu from the front
panel, use PAUSE for ‘up’, STOP for ‘down’ , for ‘right’, for
‘left’ and PLAY for ‘OK’.
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 with CDs and so may produce
more noise when loading and playing initial chapters. This is
normal.
Layer change
Many DVD discs have two layers to increase the available playback time (these DVDs are identified as type DVD-9 or DVD-18).
Often, there will be a short pause in the video and audio of
about a second whenever the laser of the player refocuses
from one layer to the next.

Enter title number.
First, highlight the title position for the first programmed item
(as shown in the screen above). Then press the number 1
on the remote control: ‘1’ is shown in the position. Using the
remote control, press to highlight the chapter position. The
message at the bottom of the screen changes accordingly,
prompting you for the required information. Press 5 on the
remote handset.
To stop the programmed sequence and return to normal
playback, select the ‘PLAY’ button in the programme menu with
no programme specified. This clears programme mode and
causes normal playback order to be resumed.
Note that in programmed playback mode, skipping
track forward or back skips forward or back through the
programmed sequence.
General
To play the programme you have entered, highlight the ‘PLAY’
button on the screen and press OK. The ‘PROG’ indicator
shows in the display and the programmed sequence begins.
If you make a mistake while programming, you can clear a
single field by highlighting it and pressing CLEAR. To clear
all the fields at once, highlight the ‘CLEAR ALL’ button on the
screen and press OK.
To stop the programmed sequence and return to normal
playback, select the PLAY button in the programme menu, with
no programme specified. This clears the programme mode and
causes normal playback order to be resumed.
Note that skipping forward or back through tracks while
in programmed play mode skips through the programmed
sequence.
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.
DVD-audio
The programming of a sequence for a DVD-audio disc
is essentially the same as for a DVD-video disc, and the
instructions given above should be followed. For DVD-audio
discs, the “titles with chapters” combination found on DVDvideo discs changes to “groups with tracks”.

Advanced MP3/WMA/JPEG and audio CD features
The DV89 DVD player has the ability to handle MP3, WMA and
JPEG files, when these are burned on to a CD-R or CD-RW disc.
Picture/Photo CDs are also playable. These file types may be
mixed together, if desired.
This section explains the more sophisticated CD-based
features, for audio CDs and for CD-ROM discs containing
MP3, WMA and JPEG files. The operation for audio-CDs and
other CD-ROMs is very similar, except that CD-ROMs can have
directories and sub-directories, while audio-CDs do not have a
directory structure.
In this section of the document, we use the term ‘CD-ROM’ to
refer to a CD-R or CD-RW disc containing MP3, WMA or JPEG
files, and including Picture/Photo CDs.
All of these advanced features use on-screen menus, so a TV
monitor is required.

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 17.
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)
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 or
WMA playback.
Skipping forward past the end of a directory with
CD-ROMs 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.
Long file names, of up to 64 characters (Joliet standard),
are supported.
Only sample rates of 44.1kHz and 48kHz are supported
for MP3 and WMA files.
For MP3 playback, the following constant bit rates are
supported: 32, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 160, 192, 256
and 320 kilobits per second. Variable bit rate (VBR)
between 96kb/s and 320kb/s is also supported.
For WMA playback, the following constant bit rates are
supported: 48, 64, 80, 96, 128, 160 and 192kb/s.
CD-ROM discs may contain files other than MP3, WMA or
JPEGs, but these are not displayed on the screen.
Because of differences in the many MP3 and WMA encoders
available, we recommend that you conduct a test recording
before transferring large numbers of MP3 files to CD-R or
CD-RW for subsequent playback on the DV89.

13 Track(s) on this disc.
Enter title number.
Press PROG on the remote control to open the ‘Programme’
menu. Playback must be stopped first.
The bottom of the screen shows the number of tracks present
on the disc. Below this is an information line, giving relevant
information for the cursor position.
You can enter a sequence of up to 20 tracks for programmed
playback. If you enter data that is invalid for the current disc,
the field will be erased automatically.
To program the player, highlight the first entry (using the cursor
pad on the remote control), then press the number of the track
you want to play first. To enter a second track, move down,
then type the number of the second track to play, etc. To enter
a track number greater than 9, press the two digits sequentially
(e.g., for track 10, first press 1, then press 0).
To play the programme you have entered, highlight the PLAY
button on the screen and press OK. The ‘PROG’ indicator shows
on the front panel display and the programmed sequence
begins.
If you make a mistake while programming, you can clear a
single field by highlighting it and pressing CLEAR. To clear
all the fields at once, highlight the ‘CLEAR ALL’ button on the
screen and press OK.
To stop the programmed sequence and return to normal
playback, select the ‘PLAY’ button in the programme menu with
no programme specified. This clears programme mode and
causes normal playback order to be resumed.
Note that in programmed playback mode, skipping
track forward or back skips forward or back through the
programmed sequence.
Programmed playback (CD-ROM)
Pressing the PROG button on the remote control stops
playback (if active) and changes the player mode to
‘Programme’ mode (as indicated at point (2)).
Navigating the directory tree is the same as described earlier
for ‘Browse’ mode. Files from any location on the disc may
be added to the playlist by moving the cursor to the file, then
pressing OK on the remote control. Files that are present in the
playlist are shown with a light blue highlight.
To remove a file from the playlist, move the cursor to the file
and press OK. The blue highlight disappears from the file,
indicating that the file is no longer in the playlist. To remove all
files from the playlist, press CLEAR on the remote control.
When you have entered the programme to your satisfaction,
press the PROG button again. This changes the display to
show the programmed list (‘Playlist’ mode) and playback starts
automatically.
Playback can be stopped and started using the STOP and PLAY
keys, as normal. To stop the programmed sequence and return
to normal playback, press the PROG button for a third time; this
stops playback and changes the player to ‘Browse’ mode.
Shuffle and Repeat
Note that this section is valid for audio-CDs only.
Repeat
Press the RPT button on the remote control to cycle throught
the repeat options. ‘Track’ or ‘Disc’ (i.e. all) repeat are available.
When a track repeat is selected, the loop symbol on the front
panel display is illuminated and the current track is repeated.
If a disc repeat is selected, the loop symbol and ‘ALL’ are
illuminated and the entire disc is repeated.
To cancel repeat, press the RPT button until the Repeat
symbols on the front panel display are no longer illuminated.
Shuffle
Press the P MODE button on the remote control to activate
shuffle play.
The ‘RAND’ (random play) indicator shows on the display, and
the tracks are played in random order.
To cancel random play, press the P MODE button for a second
time.
Note that Repeat and Shuffle cannot be set at the same time.
NOTE: If a programmed sequence is shuffled using the
P MODE button on the remote control, pressing P MODE
again will not ‘unshuffle’ the programme.
The player returns to ‘Browse’ mode if no programme has been
entered when PROG is pressed for a second time.

Problems with video output
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
No picture!
Incorrect input selected on the TV
Select the appropriate video input on the TV (consult your TV handbook)
Bad video connection from DV89 to TV
Check connections at both ends and, if necessary, try an alternative cable
The player has been put into standby
(the power LED is red)
Press the green button on the remote control to bring the player out of
standby
Progressive scan output from the DVD
player is being used, but the television
(or another device in the signal path)
cannot handle progressive scan input
Press and hold the STOP button on the front panel (not the remote control)
for at least five seconds. The video will change from progressive scan to
interlaced output.
‘Black bars’ are shown at the top
and bottom of the screen
This can occur when a ‘Wide screen’ film is viewed on a 4:3 format television.
Even with a 16:9 format television, ‘black bars’ may still be visible. This is because the DVD being viewed, although
‘Wide screen’, is not in 16:9 format. Many films are in 1:2.35 format, which will not completely fill a 16:9 screen.
Picture is coloured strangely
‘HQ video’ is set incorrectly in ‘Setup’
menu
Enter the ‘Setup’ menu and check the ‘HQ video’ setting (see page 7)
Component or RGB video leads are
crossed
Check wiring between the DV89 and the TV monitor
‘TV system’ is set incorrectly in ‘Setup’
menu
Enter the ‘Setup’ menu and check the ‘TV system’ setting (see page 7)
Picture is ‘jerky’ or shimmers
This occurs when NTSC discs (such
as those from the USA) are played in
a machine where the output is set to
PAL (such as those sold in Europe), or
vice-versa
If your television can handle both NTSC- and PAL-format video, then enter
the ‘Setup’ menu and change the ‘TV system’ setting (on the ‘Video’ page) to
‘Auto’.
The picture freezes for a moment
approximately half way through a
film
This is caused by the player changing
layers on a two-layer disc
There is no fault.
Further information about disc layer changes can often be found on the rear
cover of the disc packaging.
The picture freezes for a moment at
random points in a film
The disc is dirty or damaged
A damaged or dirty disc may cause audio and/or video drop-outs to occur (and
may be accompanied by increased drive noise). Clean or replace the disc.

Problems with audio output
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
No sound!
Incorrect input selected on audio
device (decoder, receiver, amplifier,
etc.)
Select the appropriate input on the audio device (consult that product’s
handbook)
Bad audio connection (analogue or
digital) from DV89 to audio device
Check connections at both ends and, if necessary, try an alternative cable
A two-channel source, such as a CD, is
being played
There is no fault
The ‘Audio’ is set incorrectly in the
‘Setup’ menu
Enter the ‘Setup’ menu and change the ‘Audio’ setting to ‘Bitstream/6ch.’
(see page 8)
The centre/rear speakers are
configured incorrectly in the ‘Setup’
menu
Enter the ‘Setup’ menu and change the settings on the ‘Speakers’ page to
reflect your speaker configuration (see page 9)
Bad connection between the DV89 and
the amplifier/receiver or the amplifier/
receiver and the speakers
Check connections at both end and, if necessary, try alternative cables
No sound from the centre/rear
speakers
Problems with disc playability
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
Player loads disc but does not play,
or play-back halts unexpectedly
(perhaps with the message ‘Invalid
Region’ being displayed)
Not all discs play automatically when
loaded
Press PLAY
There is a fault in the manufacturing of
the disc
Some discs are manufactured incorrectly, and are known to cause problems
on ARCAM (and other) DVD players. Naturally, we aim to support all discs; from
time-to-time we issue software upgrades for the player that fixes new problems
of which we are aware. Please contact ARCAM customer support for further
details.
The disc is from the wrong region
DVD discs are designed to be played only in the region that they are sold in
(for example, discs from the USA are ‘Region 1’ and discs from Europe are
‘Region 2’). Your player is factory-configured to play discs from the region it is
to be sold in, and may not play discs from other regions.
Disc does not play and ‘Bad Disc’ is
displayed
The disc is damaged or dirty, or does
not contain any files that the DV89 can
handle
Remove disc from tray and check surfaces for damage or dirt. In the case of a
CD-ROM, check that the disc contains valid MP3/WMA or JPEG files.
Some MP3/WMA files cannot be
played
There are some restrictions on the
type of MP3/WMA files that the DV89
player can play
See page 16 of this Handbook
The player takes a long time to
identify a CD
Since this is a DVD player (primarily), it checks for discs in the following order: DVDs, SVCDs, VCDs, CDs. Therefore it
takes longer to identify a CD than any other disc type.
The front-panel display is not
illuminated
The front-panel display has been
switched off
The front panel supports three different levels of illumination. Press the ‘DISP’
button on the remote control to select your preferred level
Before contacting customer services
If any problem persists or cannot be cured using the advice
given, either contact your Arcam dealer or Arcam customer
support.
This information is shown for approximately two seconds, and
is the following format:
software version/ drive version/ Arcam region/ DVD region
Before contacting Arcam customer services with a question
however, it is useful to have various version and region
numbers available. This information is displayed in the top left
corner of the screen when the player is first switched on (or
brought out of standby).
