REGULAR AND PROG SCAN
AUX 1
The video jacks are OUT jacks, which need to be connected to
IN jacks on the TV or monitor you’re connecting to (so the
video content goes from the receiver to the screen). The audio
jacks are IN jacks, which need to be connected to OUT jacks on
the component you’re connecting to, so the sound from the
component comes into the receiver (and out through the
speakers).

Video cables
Composite video cable (included)
Composite
video cable
The basic Video jack (usually color-coded yellow) is also referred to as composite
video. Usually the video cable is bundled with the audio cables (white and red).
S-VIDEO cable (not included)
S-VIDEO cable
The S-VIDEO(separate video) jack provides better picture quality than composite
video (the VIDEO jack) because the color is kept separate from the black and
white part of the video signal. If you are using S-video, you must connect the
audio jacks to get sound. If you use S-video to connect to another component,
you must choose the S-Video option in the Video menu (see page 20).
Component video cables Pr, Pb, Y) (not included)
The Pr, Pb, Y jacks provide optimum picture quality by separating the video signal
into three parts. To ensure maximum picture quality, use three video-grade cables
(yellow) for the connection. You can also buy bundled component video cables
that are color-coded to match the Y, Pb, Pr inputs (green, blue and red). If you
use component video to connect to another component, you must choose the
Component option in the Video menu (see page 20).
Component
video cable
Note: If your television is a high definition television, use the DVD player’s progressive scan
output to get the highest possible video resolution. Set the Progressive Scan option in the
Display menu to On (see page 20).
Note: If one of the devices is not working, check that all the cables have been inserted
properly into the jacks.
Audio cables (not included)
AUDIO L (left) and R (right)
These jacks and cables are often color-coded (red for right audio, and white for
left audio). You must connect audio cables to the AUDIO L and R jacks if you are
using S-video.
Audio cables
(red and white)
Note: If your component has only one input for audio (mono), connect it to the left (white L/
Mono) audio jack on the TV and don’t connect the right audio part of the cable.

Connections and Setup
Connecting the speakers
Six speakers are provided with the unit (2 front, 1
center, 2 rear, 1 subwoofer). To achieve good
surround effects, all six speakers need to be
connected to the receiver.
SUB CEN
SR
SL
FR
One speaker wire is attached with each speaker.
Speaker wires are color-coded to match the
terminals.
FL
Connect the speaker wire from the back of each
speaker to the corresponding color terminal at the
back of the unit. Press down the tab to open the
terminal and insert the wire (1). Release the tab to
lock wire in the terminal (2). Do the same for center
speaker, rear speakers and the subwoofer.
Note: When connecting the speakers, make sure the
polarities (“+” speaker wire to “+” on the receiver) of
speaker wires and terminals match. If the cords are
reversed, the sound will be distorted. Do not ground the
output line, it will damage the speaker.

2 Center
In surround mode, the center speaker carries most of the
dialog as well as music and effects. It should be set between
the left and right speakers.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
3 Surround (Rear Speakers)
The rear speakers’ overall sound balance should be as close
as possible to the front speakers. Proper placement is vital to
establish an evenly distributed sound field.
Subwoofer
A subwoofer is designed to reproduce powerful low bass
effects (explosions, the rumble of spaceships, etc.) which
dramatically heighten the action on the screen.

2/28/05, 10:35 AM
Connections and Setup
Magnetic shielding
Speakers placed less than two feet from the TV set must be magnetically shielded in order to
prevent picture distortion. Front and center speakers provided with this unit are magnetically
shielded to protect your TV set.
Note: It is not recommended to place the rear speakers and subwoofer near the TV set.
Front speaker placement
Follow the suggestions for speaker placement below to get the
best results.
Alignment
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Align the center speaker evenly with (A) or slightly behind (B) (the
left and right speakers), but not ahead of them.
Angle
Place the left and right speakers to form a 45-degree angle with
your favorite viewing position to duplicate the soundtrack mixer’s
perspective.
Height
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
The mid- and high-frequency drivers of the three front speakers
should be as close as possible to the same height. This often
requires placing the center speaker directly on top (A) or beneath
(B) the TV set.
Preferred surround placement
Location
If possible, place surround speakers to either side of the
listening area, not behind it.
Height
If space permits, install surround speakers 2-3 feet above
viewers. This helps to minimize localization effects.
Aiming
Aim surround speakers straight across the room, not down
at viewers, to help create a more open, spacious surround
sound field.
Alternative Surround Placement
Rear wall
If rear wall mounting is the only choice, aim the speakers
at each other (A), towards the front (B) or towards the
sidewalls (C, D). Experiment with placement until sounds
seem to surround you, rather than come from behind you.

RTD205

2/28/05, 10:35 AM
Connections and Setup
No adjacent walls
Surround speakers can go on stands facing each other to
approximate sidewall mounting (A), or to the sides or rear of
the viewing area, aimed upwards; they can go right on the
floor, or preferably, a few feet off the floor such as on end
tables (B).
Test tone/Channel balance
Channel balance
Your receiver is equipped with a test signal generator for
balancing the channels. As the signal “travels” from channel
to channel, adjust the level controls until each channel plays
at the same loudness level (see page 21).
Level adjustment and surround channel level expectation
Even though you adjust the surround channel to be as loud
as the others on the test signal, on actual program material
the surround channel is usually much lower than the front.
Don’t re-adjust the surround level; program producers use
surround for subtle atmospherics and ambience, and only
rarely for special effects.

mp3/WMA Files and JPEG Files
Playing mp3/WMA Files or displaying JPEG Files
mp3/WMA is an audio file format which compresses recorded music. The main advantage of the
mp3/WMA format is that CD-quality music tracks can be stored on a personal computer in userfriendly compressed files.
JPEG files are image files. Make sure that they have a resolution of less than 2 megapixels.
Note: The time taken for the contents of the disc to be displayed varies according to the size and number of JPEG
files on the disc. If nothing is displayed after a few minutes, the file sizes may be too large. Reduce the files’
resolution and write another disc.
Before inserting a disc, make sure it is compatible with the player.

Additional Information
Disc Formats you can play
In order to ensure playback, discs must conform with DVD, CD, VCD or SVCD standards. This unit may not play some
recordings or files due to differences in recording formats, software used & Disc types.
DVD-Video
mp3 files
Digital video discs - 12 cm, single or double
sided, single or dual layer. DVDs are highdensity optical discs on which high quality
picture and audio are recorded by means of
digital signals.
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio files in
mp3 format. For CD-R mp3 discs, please follow
all the recommendations for CD-R, along with
the comments below:
DVD-R,DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
DVD+Rewritable
Most DVD-R and DVD+R (one recording only),
DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs (rewritable),
depending on the DVD writer and discs used.
Recordings using DVD-R and DVD-RW discs
must be made in Video DVD mode. Recordings
using DVD+RW discs must be made in
accordance with the specifications for DVD+RW
discs with a 4.7 GB capacity.
VCD - Video Compact Disc
CD on which you can record up to 74 min. of
VHS quality video associated with still images,
audio tracks and interactive menus.
SVCD - Super Video Compact Disc
Most SVCDs comply with the IEC62107 standard.
SVCDs can be used to record up to 70 minutes
of digital sound and images in accordance with
MPEG-2 standards for video and MPEG-1
standards for audio.
Audio CDs
Audio CDs (12 cm).
CD-R, CD-RW
Most CD-R (one recording only) and CD-RW
discs (rewritable).
CD-Rs written during a multisession recording
can be played, provided that the session has
ended before the disc is played (depending on
the write software). However, depending on the
condition of the CD-writer, computer and the
disc used, you may find that not all discs will
play. When playing a CD-R disc, it is normal for
the unit to take up to 20 seconds to recognize
the disc before starting to play.
If the disc is not recognized after a period of 20
seconds, remove the disc, and insert it again.
• Do not use its full capacity.
• CD-Rs should be preferably used instead of
CD-RWs (rewritable CDs) as, in certain cases,
CD-RW playback may be faulty.
• Use reliable, good-quality CD write software.
• Close all other applications on the computer
to ensure reliable CD-R disc recording.
Windows Media and Windows logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of
Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.
• Your mp3 files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET
format. ISO 9660 format and Joliet mp3 files
are compatible with Microsoft’s DOS and
Windows, as well as with Apple Mac.
• mp3 filenames should not exceed 8 characters,
and should end with the “.mp3” extension.
General name format: Title.mp3. When
composing your title, use 10 characters or less,
no spaces, and avoid the use of special
characters including (. , / , \ , = ,+).
• The total number of files on a disc should be
less than 400.
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128 kB/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording
mp3 files. Sound quality with mp3 files
basically depends on the rate of
compression/decompression you choose.
Obtaining audio CD quality sound requires an
analog/digital sampling rate, that is
conversion to mp3 format, of at least 128
kB/sec and up to 160 kB/sec. Choosing higher
rates, such as 192 kB/sec or more, only rarely
produces even better sound quality.
Conversely, files with sampling rates below
128 kB/sec will not play properly.
• Do not record copyright-protected mp3 files.
“Securized” files are encrypted and codeprotected to prevent illegal copying.
Important: The above recommendations does
not guarantee that the DVD player will play
mp3 recordings, or as an assurance of sound
quality. Certain technologies and methods for
mp3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent optimal
playback of these files on your DVD player
(i.e. degraded sound quality and in some
cases, inability of the player to read the file).
JPEG files
CD-R and CD-RW with JPEG files. Certain JPEG
files, including progressive JPEG files, cannot be
read by this player.
The total number of files and folders on the disc
should be less than 650. Make sure that files
have the “.jpg” extension. Files without the “.jpg”
extension will not be able to be read by the
player - even though the files are shown as
JPEG images on your computer.
WMA files
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio files in
WMA (Windows Media Audio) format. Please
follow all the recommendations for CD-R above.

Sound Enhancement Systems
This receiver is equipped with several built-in sound enhancement systems.
Dolby Digital
The Dolby Digital mode lets you enjoy full digital surround from software processed in the Dolby Digital format. Dolby
Digital provides better sound quality and a more powerful presence than conventional Dolby Surround. This unit is
equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel so that you can enjoy enhanced full digital surround sound. Different from
Dolby Pro Logic in that only four channels (Front Left, Front Right, Centre and Rear ) are used, the new system
provides stereo separation of the rear speakers (Rear-Right, Rear-Left ). Adding the to the 5 channels the subwoofer
channel for bass sounds (counted as 0.1 channel) results in 5.1 channels (or 6 Channels) that bring you the most
sophisticated Dolby Digital sound enjoyment.
