Notes on DVDs and Video CDs
Some playback operations of DVDs and Video CDs
may be intentionally fixed by software manufacturers.
As this unit plays DVDs and Video CDs according to
disc content designed by the software manufacturer,
some playback features of the unit may not be available
or other functions may be added.
Make sure to also refer to the instructions supplied with
the DVDs and Video CDs. Some DVDs made for business purposes may not be able to be played on the
unit.
Regional code of the DVD/VCR Receiver and DVDs
This DVD/VCR Receiver is designed and manufactured for playback of region “2” encoded DVD
software. The region code on the labels of some
DVDs indicates which type of player can play
those discs. This unit can only play DVDs labeled “2” or
“ALL”. If you try to play any other discs, the message
“Check Regional Code” will appear on the TV screen.
Some DVDs that have no region code label may still be
subject to area restrictions and therefore not playable.

Video CDs not equipped with PBC (Version 1.1)
Operated in the same way as audio CDs, these discs
allow playback of video pictures as well as sound, but
they are not equipped with PBC.
Notes
“Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies”
This product is designed to playback discs that conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard.
Recently, various music discs encoded with copyright
protection technologies are marketed by some record
companies. Please be aware that among those discs,
there are some that do not conform to the CD standard and may not be playable by this product.
Precautions
Cleaning discs
Handling the unit
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture
quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean the disc
with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packaged at the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
To keep the surface clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface
of the unit.
To obtain a clear picture
The DVD/VCR Receiver is a high-tech, precision
device. If the optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts
are dirty or worn, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
No
Yes
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,
thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for older vinyl records.

Speaker System Connections
Speaker Positioning
Connect the speakers using the supplied speaker cords
by matching the colors of the terminals and those of the
cords. To obtain the best possible surround sound,
adjust the speaker parameters (distance, level, etc.).
For a normal setup use 6 speakers (2 front speakers,
center speaker, 2 rear speakers and subwoofer).
Notes
Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate
terminal on the components: 3 to 3 and # to #. If
the cords are reversed, the sound will be distorted
and lack bass.
If you use front speakers with low maximum input rating, adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive
volume output to the speakers.
Do not disassemble the front covers of supplied speakers.
Front Speaker
(Right)
Center
Speaker
Front Speaker
(Left)
• Front Speakers
Based on your listening position, set up the speakers
at equal distance. And by hearing position, set up an
interval between speakers of 45 degree.
• Center Speaker
It is ideal that the center speakers and front speakers
are same height. But normally place it above or below
the television as shown below.
• Rear Speakers
Place the rear surround speakers to the left and right
behind the primary listening area. These speakers
recreate sound motion and atmosphere required for
surround playback. For best results, do not install the
rear speakers too far behind the listening position,
install them at or above the level of the listener’s ears.
It is also effective to direct the rear speakers towards
a wall or ceiling to further disperse the sound.
In the case of a smaller room size, if the audience is
near to the rear wall set the rear speakers opposite
each other, and set the rear speakers 60 - 90 cm
above the listener’s ears.

This can be placed in any front position.

Mini Glossary
Mini Glossary for Audio Stream
and Surround mode
Allows you to enjoy 5.1(or 6) discrete channels of high quality
digital audio from DTS programme sources such as discs,
DVD and compact discs, etc.bearing the trademark. DTS
Digital Surround delivers up to 6 channels of transparent
audio(which means identical to the original masters) and
results in exceptional clarity throughout a true 360 degree
sound field. The term DTS is a trademark of DTS Technology,
LLC. Manufactured under license from DTS Technology, LLC.
(Dolby Digital)
The Dolby Digital surround format lets you enjoy up to 5.1
channels of digital surround sound from a Dolby Digital programme source. If you play DVDs with “
” mark, you can
enjoy even better sound quality, greater spatial accuracy, and
improved dynamic range.
(Dolby Pro Logic)
Use this mode when playing movie or Dolby Digital 2 channel
which carries the “
” mark. This mode provides the effect
of being in a movie theatre or live concert house-an effect with
an intensity which can only be obtained through DOLBY PRO
LOGIC SURROUND. The effect of the front/back/left/right
movement of the sound image, as well as the sense of fixed
position in the sound image, is much clearer and more dynamic than before.
(Dolby Pro Logic II)
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels
from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced,
high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without adding any new
sounds or tonal colorations.
MOVIE mode:
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television shows and all
programs encoded in Dolby Surround. The result is enhanced
soundfield directionality that approaches the quality of discrete
5.1-channel sound.
MUSIC mode:
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings,
and provides a wide and deep sound space. The Music mode
includes controls that allow the sound to be tailored to individual
listening tastes.
MATRIX mode:
The Matrix mode is the same as the Music mode except that the
directional enhancement logic is turned off. It may be used to
enhance mono signals by making them seem “larger.” The
Matrix mode may also find use in auto systems, where the fluctuations from poor FM stereo reception can otherwise cause disturbing surround signals from a logic decoder. The ultimate
“cure” for poor FM stereo reception may be simply to force the
audio to mono.
3D SURROUND
This unit can produce a 3D Surround effect, using 3D Surround
Sound technology, which simulates multi-channel audio playback from two conventional stereo speakers instead of the five
or more speakers normally required to listen to multi-channel
audio from a home theatre. This feature works with DVD discs
encoded with Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital audio tracks.
14GB
BYPASS
Software with multichannel surround audio signals is played
according to the way it was recorded.
Sound Mode
You can enjoy surround sound simply by selecting one
of the pre-programmed sound fields according to the
programme you want to listen to.
Press SOUND FIELD repeatedly until the sound mode
you want appears in the display window as below.
Each time you press SOUND FIELD button, the sound
mode is changed in the following order;
PRO LOGIC → PL2 MOVIE → PL2 MUSIC → PL2 MATRIX →
3D SURROUND → BYPASS
When DVD is inserted.
You can change the sound mode of DVD (Dolby Digital, DTS,
PRO LOGIC, etc) by pressing the AUDIO button on the remote
during playback.
Although the DVD contents differ from disc to disc, the following explains the basic operation when this feature is used.
Each time you press AUDIO button, the sound mode of DVD is
changed as the following order;
→
→
→
For your reference
• The DVD/VCR Receiver memorizes the last mode
settings for each source individually.
• You can identify the encoding format of programme software by looking at its packaging.
- Dolby Digital discs are labeled with the
logo.
- Dolby Surround encoded programs are labeled with
the
logo.
- DTS Digital Surround discs are marked with DTS.
Note
When you play sound tracks with 96kHz sampling frequency, the
output signals will be converted to 48kHz (sampling frequency).
Volume Control
You can adjust the volume by rotating VOLUME on the
front panel or by pressing VOL (+/–) on the remote control repeatedly.
Muting

Your DVD/VCR Receiver will record and play back
Hi-Fi stereo sound. In addition it has a NICAM digital
stereo sound decoder. This allows you to record and
play back the sound in several different ways. Video
cassettes recorded on your DVD/VCR Receiver will
have a normal mono audio track and two VHS Hi-Fi
stereo audio tracks. These stereo tracks allow you to
make audio recordings in Hi-Fi stereo or bilingual mode
from a TV broadcast, stereo audio system, video disc or
another Hi-Fi VIDEO.
Your DVD/VCR Receiver can record and play back
widescreen aspect ratio programmes (16:9). To record a
wide screen format programme successfully the correct
type of widescreen signal must be broadcast by the TV
station.

The primary language will be output from both
channels when the audio setting is MONO.
Please note that when adjusting the tracking control
Hi-Fi stereo sound may revert to MONO.

Notes on MP3 Files
About MP3
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The DVD/VCR Receiver can not read an MP3 file
that has a file extension other than “.mp3”.
MP3 Disc compatibility with this DVD/VCR
Receiver is limited as follows:
Sampling Frequency : only at 44.1kHz
Bit rate : within 32 - 320kbps
CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660”
If you record MP3 files using the software which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example “UDF” etc.,
it is impossible to playback MP3 files. We recommend that you use an ISO9660 file system.
A single session disc requires MP3 files in the first
track. If there is no MP3 file in the 1st track, it cannot
playback MP3 files. If you wish to playback MP3
files, format all the data in the disc or use a new one.
File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate “.mp3” extension
e.g. “********.mp3”.
Do not use special letters such as “/ : * ? “ < > ” etc.
Total number of files on the disc should be less than
650.
This DVD/VCR Receiver requires discs/recordings to
meet certain technical standards in order to achieve
optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to these standards. There are many different types of recordable disc formats (including CD-R
containing MP3 files). That require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to insure compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3 files and music
from the Internet. Our company has no right to
grant such permission. Permission should always
be sought from the copyright owner.

Notes on JPEG Files
Depending upon the size and number of the JPEG
files, it could take a long time for the DVD/VCR
Receiver to read the disc’s contents. If you don’t see
an on-screen display after several minutes, some of
the files are too big — reduce the resolution of the
JPEG files to less than 2 mega pixels and burn another disc.
Total number of files and folders on the disc should
be less than 650.
Some disc may be incompatible due to different
recording format or condition of disc.
If the files have “.jpe” or “.jpeg” extensions, please
rename them as “.jpg” files.
File names without “.jpg” extension will not be able to
be read by this DVD/VCR Receiver, even though the
files are shown as JPEG image files in windows
