(About the cooling fan)
A cooling fan is mounted on the rear panel of the center unit to
prevent abnormal temperature inside the center unit, thus assuring
normal operation. The cooling fan automatically starts rotating to
supply external cool air to the inside of the center unit when the
internal temperature exceeds the specified limit.
11
For safety, observe the following carefully.
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the center unit. Poor
ventilation could overheat and cause damage.
• DO NOT block the cooling fan and the ventilation openings or
holes. (If they are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat
may not be able to escape.)
Press AUX on the remote control to select DIGITAL IN, AUX1, or AUX2.
Press Function on the main unit to select DIGITAL IN, AUX1, or AUX2.
• Each time the button is pressed the mode switches as follows: FM ➞ AM ➞ DVD ➞

P.SCAN(Progressive Scan) Function
Unlike a regular Interlace Scan in which two fields of picture information are alternated to
create the entire picture (odd scan lines, then even scan lines), Progressive Scan uses
one field of information (all lines displayed in one pass) to create a clear and detailed
picture without visible scan lines. To enjoy a progressive scan video, connect a TV or
monitor that supports a progressive scan input to this device.
While the player is in the Stop mode, hold the P.SCAN
button down for longer than 1 second.
• The selection switches back and forth between "P.SCAN" and "I.SCAN"
each time the button is held down for a minimum of 1 second.
• The previous mode is indicated in the display first, followed by the
selected mode in about a second.
• The “WAIT” message that appears on the display for about 4~5 seconds when turning on
•
•
the power or selecting a DVD function indicates a stabilization period for optimizing the
condition of your DVD player. While the message is being displayed, other buttons
remain inactive.
When the power is not turned on, press down the Stop ( ) button on the main unit for
over 5 seconds.
The product will be initialized to its optimum state.
Some operational features such as the Speaker mode, Test tone, Volume, etc. will not
be displayed on the TV screen.
P.Scan Adj (Progressive Scan Adjusting)
This function allows you to optimize the picture quality when it becomes poor due to screen distortion or
discs containing erroneous data.
Press the Setup/P .Adj button. (Play mode only)
• Each time the Setup/P .Adj button is pressed, the following appears on the TV screen:
What is Progressive (or Non-Interlaced) Scanning?
TV Broadcast System
Interlaced Scan (1 FRAME = 2 FIELDS)
Progressive Scan (FULL FRAME)
• This device is designed to work with the NTSC video format.
• For normal playback, the video format a DVD disc is recorded in must
coincide with your TV's video format.
In interlaced-scan video, a frame consists of two
interlaced fields (odd and even), where each field
contains every other horizontal line in the frame.
The odd field of alternating lines is displayed first, and
then the even field is displayed to fill in the alternating
gaps left by the odd field to form a single frame.
One frame, displayed every 1/30th of a second, contains
two interfaced fields, thus a total of 60 fields are
displayed every 1/60th of a second each.
The interlaced scanning method is intended for capturing
a still object.
The progressive scanning method scans one full frame of
video consecutively down the screen, line by line.
As opposed to the interlaced scanning process by which a
video image is drawn in a series of passes, you get an
entire image drawn at one time.
The progressive scanning method is desirable for dealing
with moving objects. A camera that has the ability to
capture moving objects is called a "full frame shutter
camera".
• This function only works with TV's equipped with component video inputs (Y, P , P ).
• Depending on the brand and model of your TV, this function may not work.

MP3-CD Playback
This system has a built-in MP3 decoder.
You can play back MP3 tracks (files)recorded on CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and CD-ROMs.
Operations Using the On-Screen Display
Turn on your TV when playing back an MP3 disc.
What is MP3? MP3 is an abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group (or MPEG) Audio Layer 3.
MP3 is simply a file format with a data compression ratio of 1:10 (128 Kbps*). That means,by using MP3
format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contain 10 times as much data volume as a regular CD.
Starting Playback
When the loaded MP3 disc is recognized, the following
on-screen display appears on the TV screen.
(The contents of this on-screen display vary according to
the disc — the way MP3 tracks were recorded on the
disc.)
• It is recommended you turn on your TV when playing back an MP3-CD.

CD-R/RW playback compatibility

• Your DVD player can also play CD-R and CDRW discs recorded in digital audio format.
When recording your own CD-R or CD-RW
discs, make sure that the recording session is
properly terminated, or they will not be
playable. (Depending on disc properties and
recording quality, some CD-R/RW may not be
playable.)
• CD-RW has a lower reflection rate than CD-R
media and consequently it will take a longer to
read CD-R discs.
• CD-RW discs recorded at high speed tend to
be difficult for the DVD player to read. If the
recording speed for the CD-RW disc is not
predetermined, write it at low speed.

You can use the DVD player's Setup function to select the TV screen ratio,
rating limit, or digital output mode.
The horizontal to vertical screen size ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, while that of wide screen and high
definition TVs is 16:9. This ratio is called the aspect ratio. When playing DVDs recorded in different screen
size, you should adjust the aspect ratio to fit your TV or monitor.
✱ For a standard TV, select either "4:3LB" or "4:3PS" option according to
personal preference. Select "16:9" if you have a wide screen TV.

• Dolby Pro-Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic
steering technology and offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
• Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround (
) but also
regular stereo sources into five channels (front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) to achieve
surround sound.
• Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited, Dolby Pro
Logic II offers a wider band range.
In addition, the surround channels were monaural (the surround left and right channels were the same) with previous
Dolby Pro Logic, but with Dolby Pro Logic II they are stereo.
The display changes depending on the current audio output
mode (DSP, PRO LOGIC, 3-STEREO, STEREO, etc.).

* Sources recorded in Dolby Surround
These are sources in which three or more channels of surround have been recorded as two channels of signals
using Dolby Surround encoding technology.
Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of movies recorded on DVDs, LDs and video cassettes to be played on
stereo VCRs, as well as for the stereo broadcast signals of FM radio, TV, satellite broadcasts and cable TV.
Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic makes it possible to achieve multi-channel surround playback.
The signals can also be played on ordinary stereo equipment, in which case they provide normal stereo sound.

DSP(Digital Signal Processor) Modes
To increase Effect level
DSP modes have been designed to simulate different acoustic environments.
The sound heard in a hall, theater, pavilion, dance club, or live club consists of direct
and indirect sound —early reflections and reflections from behind.
Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any reflection.
Indirect sounds are delayed by the distance of the ceiling and walls.
These indirect sounds are an important element of the acoustic surround effect.
