3 HOW IT WORKS
ABOUT YOUR DVD PLAYER
The following will help you get the most enjoyment from your DVD receiver system.
BEST LOCATION
The unit should be placed on a firm, flat surface, away from VCRs, stereos, radios, or large

7 HOW IT WORKS
OPERATING THE REMOTE CONTROL
Battery Installation
1. Push down and out on the battery Compartment cover to remove it.
2. Insert the two " AAA " batteries into the battery
compartment of the remote control, making
sure the + and - signs on the batteries and
inside the battery compartment match up.
3. Replace the battery compartment cover.
Notes:
Do not mix batteries from different manufacturers, nor old ones with new.
If the remote control will not be used for an
extended period of time, remove the
batteries to prevent damage-causing
corrosion.
Remove dead batteries immediately to
prevent damage-causing corrosion.
If battery leakage occurs, wipe the battery
liquid from the battery compartment, then
replace both batteries.
Always replace both batteries at the same
time, using new, fully charged batteries.
Life expectancy of batteries may vary
depending on amount of use.
Using the Remote Control
Point the remote control at the remote sensor
on the DVD receiver. When the signal is
received from the remote control, the unit will
function accordingly. The remote will operate to
approximately 16' from the remote sensor at an
angle of around 30 each direction.
Notes:
Do not direct the remote sensor toward
any light source, such as direct sunlight or
a strong fluorescent light, as it may cause
the unit to not operate correctly.
When other remote controls are used
nearby or when the remote is used near
equipment using infrared rays, interference
may occur.
Placing an object on the remote control
may cause it to inadvertently depress a
button, changing a function and shortening
battery life.
Do not glaze the front of the DVD receiver
with colored glass, as it may cause
interference with normal operation of the
controller.
Make sure there is no barrier between the
remote control and remote sensor, as it
could prevent the unit from receiving the
signal.
Do not spill water or put wet items on the
remote control.
Never disassemble remote control.

SPEAKERS
ARRANGEMENT OF SPEAKERS
The ideal surround sound speaker configuration may vary according to room size and wall
material. The figure below illustrates a typical
arrangement.
The configuration and arrangement of a
surround sound system's speakers is critical.
For maximum listening enjoyment, refer to the
Arrangement of Speakers section in this manual
prior to connecting speakers.
Hints:
Front or main speakers and central speaker
should be placed at the same level and in a way
that sound is oriented toward the listener's ears.
3D surround sound or rear speakers should
be placed 3' higher than the height of listener's
ears.
Subwoofer speaker may be placed anywhere
within the room, as its location produces little
effect on a listener's sensation to sound. To
obtain the optimum bass effect, a subwoofer is
recommended in home theater systems.
Surround Sound Speakers
Front or main right and left speakers;
center speaker
These three speakers provide extensive
sound imaging and augment the dynamic effect
of the audio. A movie's principal dialogue comes
through these speakers.
Rear or surround sound speakers
These two speakers provide 3-D dynamic
sound effects, and create an enveloping
atmosphere, as they add background sounds.
.
Subwoofer speaker
Provides rich and powerful bass, adding a
powerful dimension of realism.
