Introduction
Thank you for choosing the
Harman Kardon DVD
The DVD is a multipurpose DVD player, capable of
playing both DVD-Video discs and conventional
CD audio discs with the highest fidelity and
access to future software upgrades via the
Internet. Along with conventional DVD-Video and
CD audio discs, the DVD is also compatible with
MP3, WMA, JPEG and most recordable CD and
DVD formats as well as VCD discs.
To enable you to get the maximum quality from
DVDs, the DVD is equipped with the latest in
design techniques, including advanced 10-bit
video digital-to-analog converters (DAC) and
Video (composite), S-Video and RGB video (RGB
via SCART) outputs, to ensure that you get all the
quality inherent in today’s DVD medium. For optimum playback of NTSC and PAL DVD with compatible high-definition display devices, DVD is
equipped with progressive component video outputs.
In addition, Harman Kardon’s audio heritage
continues into the digital video era with audiophile-grade Wolfson DACs to ensure that the
audio quality matches the superb video. Of
course, both coaxial and optical digital audio
outputs are available for direct connection to A/V
receivers or processors so that you may take
advantage of Dolby Digital* and DTS® soundtracks. When playing audio CDs, the playback
quality is state-of-the-art, matching that of the
finest players available.
A wide range of programming features makes it
easy to program an evening’s worth of entertainment. When playing DVDs, easy-to-understand
on-screen menus and icons make it simple to
change languages, soundtracks, subtitles or
aspect ratio, while a parental-lock function
enables you to control which discs may be
viewed by younger members of the household.
DVD players are among the fastest growing consumer electronics products ever brought to market, but this may, nevertheless, be the first DVD
player you’ve owned. Although many of the features of the DVD resemble those of standard CD
players, there are a number of functions that you
may be unfamiliar with. To ensure that you are
able to take advantage of all the power and flexibility the DVD has to offer, we encourage you to
review this quick setup manual. That small
investment of your time will pay major dividends
in the enjoyment you will get from proper use of
the DVD.

Terminology
Terminology
Since they share some of the characteristics and
technology of CD players, many of the terms and
operational concepts used in a DVD player are
similar to what you may be familiar with from CD
players and changers, or older video disc formats
such as Laser Disc. However, if this is your first
DVD product, some of the terms used to describe
the features of a DVD player may be unfamiliar.
The following explanations should solve some of
the mysteries of DVD, and help you to enjoy all
the power and flexibility of the DVD format and
the DVD.
With the arrival of DVD, disc data capacity has
increased dramatically. On a DVD Video disc most
of this capacity is taken up by MPEG 2 video and
the multichannel movie soundtrack in Dolby
Digital and/or DTS. This information is compressed.
Aspect Ratio: This is a description of the width
of a video image in relation to its height. A conventional video screen is four units wide for every
three units of height, that’s why the ratio is called
”4:3”. Newer wide aspect ratio video displays
are 16 units wide for every nine units of height,
making them more like the screen in a movie theater. The program material on a DVD may be
recorded in either format and, in addition, you
may configure the DVD to play back in either format, depending on the features recorded on a
disc.
4 TERMINOLOGY
Title: For a DVD, a title is defined as an entire
movie or program. There can be as many chapters
within a title as the producers decide to include.
Most discs include only one title, but some may
have more than one, to give you a “Double
Feature” presentation.
Chapter: DVD programs are divided into chapters and titles. Chapters are the sub-sections programmed into a single title on a disc. Chapters
may be compared to the individual tracks on an
audio CD.
RGB Video: This is a new form of video signal
that eliminates many of the artifacts of traditional
composite video signals by splitting the signal
into the three fundamental colors Red, Green and
Blue (RGB). With an RGB connection (via SCART),
you will see greater picture resolution and eliminate many picture imperfections such as the
moiré patterns often seen on checkered patterned cloths. However, in order to benefit from
RGB video, you must have a video display with an
RGB compatible SCART input.
Progressive scan: DVD offers progressive scan
video outputs for use with compatible high-resolution televisions and projectors. Before DVD, no
consumer medium could store, transmit or display
video with full resolution. To conserve bandwidth,
analog compression (interlacing) is employed: first
the odd-numbered lines of a frame are displayed,
followed by the even-numbered lines. The result is
that only half of the video image is drawn at one
time; the viewer's brain must reassemble the complete image. This is acceptable, if the monitor is
not too large and if there is not too much motion
in the image. Large displays and fast-moving
images reveal the limitations of this system.
Thanks to DVD's immense data capacity, images
are now stored intact (progressively), so that all
the lines in each frame (odd and even) are shown
at the same time. But because most TV's cannot
handle a progressive signal, all current DVD players generate an interlaced output for compatibility. Now, the Harman Kardon DVD is among the
select few DVD players with true progressive scan
video output (NTSC and PAL) for use with compatible TV's and CRT projectors and with all plasma, LCD and DLP display devices via the component video output. The result is 40% greater light
output than a conventional TV and a stunningly
detailed high definition image, along with an
almost complete absence of visible scanlines and
motion artifacts. Of course, traditional Y/Pr/Pb
component video, SCART, S-Video and composite
video outputs are included for use with conventional televisions and projectors.
Multiple Angle: DVDs have the capability to
show up to four different views of the same
scene in a program. When a disc is encoded with
multiple-angle information, pressing the Angle
button will enable you to switch between these
different views. Note that at present, few discs
take advantage of this capability and, when they
do, the multiple-angle technology may only be
present for short periods of time within the disc.
Producers will usually insert some sort of icon or
graphic in the picture to alert you to the availability of multiple viewing angles.
Reading: This is a message that you will see
after you´ve loaded the disc and the tray has
closed. It refers to the fact that the player must
first examine the contents of the disc to see if it is
a CD or DVD, and then extract the information
about the type of material on the disc, such as
languages, aspect ratios, subtitles, number of
titles and more. The slight delay while the contents of the disc are read is normal.
Resume: The operation of the Stop Button on
the DVD works differently from what you are
used to on CD players. On a traditional CD player,
when you press the Stop button, the unit does
just that: it stops playback. On a CD player, when
you press the start button again, the disc starts
from the beginning. With the DVD, however, you
have two options when playing DVD discs.
Pressing Stop once will stop playback, but it actually puts the unit in the Resume mode. This
means that you can turn the machine off and,
when you press play the next time, the disc will
resume or continue from the point on the disc
where the Stop button was pressed. This is helpful if you are watching a movie and must interrupt your viewing session but wish to pick up
where you left off. Pressing the Stop button twice
will stop the machine in a traditional manner
and, when the disc is played again, it will start
from the beginning.
In resume mode, the cover of the DVD will be
displayed, if available. Otherwise, the
Harman Kardon screen will appear.

capable of a wide range of features, not all discs
include every capability of the DVD system. For
example, although the DVD is compatible with
multi-angle discs, that feature is only possible
when the disc is specially encoded for multipleangle play. In addition, the DVD is capable of
playing back both Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks, but the number and types of tracks available will vary from disc to disc. To make certain
that a specific feature or soundtrack option is
available, please check the options noted on the
disc jacket.

the TV (or to the AV Receiver) by one line
only. Use the Video output, when your TV set
is equipped with a Video input jack only.
■ The S (separate) video output connector separates the color (C) and luminance (Y) signals
before transmitting them to the TV set in
order to achieve a sharper picture. Use the
S-video cable when connecting the player to
a TV equipped with an S-video input
for improved picture clarity. Never connect
both outputs, Video and S-Video, to your TV
or AV Receiver, only one of them.
■ Most European TV´s are equipped with SCART
connectors rather than with a normal video
input (yellow cinch). In that case the SCART
connection should be used, providing the
audio signal too. Separate analog audio connections to TV are needed only if your TV is
connected to the video or S-video output.
■ When the audio signal is to be fed to a stereo
or Pro Logic amplifier/decoder or receiver
rather than to the TV, connect the Audio Out
jacks to any normal audio input on your
amplifier/decoder/receiver. The DVD will
”downmix” Dolby Digital recordings to Pro
Logic, available on these connectors, all analog surround or stereo signals will be fed to
them directly.
You can also select the audio and video signals of all your video devices with your AV
Receiver/Amplifier. For more information see
”Note” on next page.

Setup and Connections
Connecting to a receiver/amplifier with Dolby Digital (AC-3) or DTS (Digital Theater Systems) decoder
■ Note: With multiple video sources, your
Audio/Video device can be used for selecting
the video signal and routing it to the TV.
Connect the video or S-video output of the
DVD player (whatever is provided with your
device) to the video or S-video input on your
device and the video/S-video output of this
device to your TV. For more details, see the
manual of your Audio/Video amplifier/receiver.
When DVD´s encoded in Dolby Digital or DTS are
played, the Dolby Digital or DTS bitstream is output from the player’s OPTICAL or COAXIAL digital audio output. When the player is connected
to a Dolby Digital or DTS decoder, you can enjoy
theater-quality audio in your home. An optical
digital audio cable or coaxial audio cable (both
optional) is required for these connections, as
shown below. Only one connection is needed,
not both at the same time.
■ Note for Analog Audio: The connection
from Audio Out to the TV is optional only.
Normally you´ll hear the sound from your
AV-system´s speakers, so the TV volume
should be completely turned down. If you
plan to use your DVD player also without
having to turn on your complete system, this
connection must exist, then you can turn up
the TV´s volume as needed.

Setup and Connections
Connecting to a TV or monitor with SCART or Component connectors
Note that with RGB video the color intensity
cannot be adjusted with most TVs.
Important Notes on SCART and RGB
format:
■ Your DVD is equipped with a SCART connector for direct connection to the TV.
■ When the RGB video signal is used, DVD´s
recorded with the NTSC format (with regional
code 0 or 2) can be viewed even on nonNTSC compatible TVs.
■ The SCART connector provides the video
signal as well as audio (stereo L/R) signals.
■ The SCART connector for the TV provides the
composite video signal or the direct RGB signal, delivering the best video performance
possible, selectable in the Setup menu. To
view RGB video on your TV, the RGB compatible SCART connector on the TV must be used
and the DVD´s TV SCART connector must be
set to ”RGB”.
Component Video Connection
If the video display has component video inputs,
connect the Component Video Outputs on the
DVD to the corresponding input jacks on your
television. If you are using a progressive scan
television or projector, you must also change the
Scan Type in the DVD player's Video Set-Up
Menu from ”Interlaced” to ”Progressive”.

For your reference:
■ Dolby Digital (AC-3) is a digital sound compression technique developed by the Dolby
Laboratories Licensing Corporation,
supporting 5.1-channel surround sound, as
well as stereo (2-channel) sound, this technique enables a large quantity of sound data
to be efficiently recorded on a disc.
■ Linear PCM is a signal recording format used
in CDs. While CDs are recorded in
44.1 kHz/16 bit, DVDs are recorded in
48 kHz/16 bit up to 96 kHz /24 bit.
■ If you have a Dolby Pro Logic Surround
decoder connected to the DVD’s analog
AUDIO OUT connectors, thanks to the
”Downmix” function of the DVD you will
obtain the full benefit of Pro Logic from the
same DVD movies that provide full 5.1-channel Dolby Digital soundtracks, as well as from
titles encoded with Dolby Surround.
■ The DVD is designed to digitally output
96 kHz-PCM audio with a 96 kHz sampling
rate. However, some 96 kHz DVD's may
include copy protection codes that do not
permit digital output. For full 96 kHz fidelity
from these discs, use the analog outputs of
the DVD.
IMPORTANT: If your surround processor/D/A
converter does not support 96 kHz PCM audio,
you must use the DVD analog outputs for full
96 kHz fidelity with these discs.
Caution for the optical/coaxial
digital audio outputs:
■ When connecting an amplifier (with an
optical/coaxial digital input ) which does not
contain a Dolby Digital (AC-3) or DTS
decoder, be sure to select ”PCM” as initial
setting in the ”Digital Output” menu (see
also page 18).
Otherwise, any attempt to play a DVD may
cause such a high level of noise that it may
be harmful to your ears and damage your
speakers.
■ CD´s can be played as they would normally be
played.
Note:
■ Some first generation DTS decoders which do
not support DVD-DTS interface may not work
properly with the DVD/CD player.
Notes when connecting the
optical digital audio cable
(optional)
■ Remove the dust protection cap from the
optical digital audio output and connect the
cable firmly so that the configurations of both
the cable and the connector match.
■ Keep the dust protection cap and always
reattach the cap when not using the connector.
Dolby Digital and DTS
Both Dolby Digital and DTS are audio formats
used to record 5.1-channel audio signals onto
the digital track of film. Both of these formats
provide six separate channels: left, right, center,
left rear, right rear, and common subwoofer.
The latest 6.1-formats, Dolby Digital EX and DTS
ES, even one (or two) additional "Surround
Back" channel for a center between the rears.
Remember, that Dolby Digital or DTS will only
play 5.1-channel sound if you’ve connected the
optical or coaxial output of the DVD player to a
DTS or Dolby Digital receiver or decoder and if
the disc was recorded in the Dolby Digital or DTS
format.

16 PLAYBACK BASICS
Fast Motion Playback/Fast Search
1. To move forward or backward through the
DVD or CD disc being played at fast speed,
press SEARCH on the remote. Once one of
these buttons is pressed, the fast search will
continue until PLAY is pressed.
There are four fast-play speeds. Each press of
the SEARCH Buttons will cycle to the next speed
in the following order: 2x, 4x, 16x, 100x,
indicated by a number of arrow indicators on the
right top of the screen.
2. Press PLAY at any time to resume normal
playback.
Note that there will be no audio playback during
fast-forward or -reverse play of DVD discs. This is
normal for DVD, as A/V receivers and surround
processors cannot process the digital audio
streams during fast-play modes; audio will be
heard during fast-play of conventional CD’s.
Freeze Frame and Frame Advance
(with DVD only)
1. Press PAUSE when a DVD is playing to freeze
the picture.
2. Each time you press one of the STEP (FWD or
REV) buttons, the picture advances one frame
in the selected direction.
3. Press PLAY to resume normal playback.
Slow Motion Playback (with DVD only)
1. When a DVD disc is in pause or freeze frame
mode, you may move slowly forward or backward through the program being played at
one of four speeds by pressing the Play

buttons will move to the next speed, indicated
by a number of arrow indicators on the right
top of the screen.
2. Press PLAY to resume normal playback.
Note that there will be no audio playback during
slow-forward or -reverse play of DVD discs. This
is normal for DVD, as A/V receivers and surround
processors cannot process the digital audio
streams during slow modes. Slow play is not
available for CD.
Notes: Playback features may not be available
during the opening credits of a movie. This is
intended by the disc author and is not a failure
of the DVD.
Playback of a DVD with 96 kHz/24-bit audio
requires the use of circuitry normally used for
other features. Accordingly, Slow Play Reverse
and Step Advance features are not available
with these discs.
Depending on the structure of a VCD disc, the
functions Slow Reverse and Step Reverse may be
prohibited or have no function and Fast Playback
(Search) may not function.

System Setup
System Defaults
Set Up Menu
The final step of the installation is to establish
the system’s defaults. It is helpful to take a few
minutes to familiarize yourself with these
settings, as they may require change before the
first use and later from time to time.
The first step in checking or changing the system
defaults is to access the Setup Menu. First, make
certain that the DVD is properly connected to a
video display, and that power is connected. For
this process, however, you do not need to load
any discs into the unit.
General Functionality of the OSD Menu
The complete setup and control of the DVD 22
takes place in an advanced user-guided On
Screen Display (OSD) menu system. The OSD can
be activated by pressing the OSD button on the
remote control. Pressing this button again deactivates the OSD.
The main menu consists of a PLAYER Menu and a
SET-UP Menu. The PLAYER Menu will show all
information and options available for the disc
currently playing. The SET-UP Menu will help you
configure all audio and video settings which are
normally only made once.
Each Main Menu contains Submenus. These submenus are shown as icons on the left side of the
menu. They can be highlighted by a white square
around the icon by moving the cursor with the
ARROW buttons. Icons can be activated by pressing ENTER as soon as an icon is highlighted.
When ENTER has been pressed, the color of the
icon will change to dark blue and you will see
that the Actual Settings of this submenu will
appear on the right side of the menu.
During STOP, PAUSE or PLAY mode, if you press
OSD on the remote, the Set Up Menu appears on
the screen.
This Main Menu and all menus in the following
section may look different, listing the settings
with different languages, depending on the settings made previously. With the factory default
setting all languages are set to ”English”, that´s
why with all menus the English version is shown
in the manual.
In the SET-UP Menu you will find submenus for
making or changing all settings and adjustments
for both Audio and Video handling of your DVD
22.
To access the SET-UP Menu, press the OSD button, and move the cursor to the right until SET-UP
is highlighted. Press ENTER to activate the SYSTEM Settings:

control viewing of restricted programs. The
default password is 8888. After pressing the
default password, either the parental control
setting can be chosen, or a new password. The
five standard US rating symbols are ”G”
(General, level 2), ”PG” (Parental Guidance, level
4), ”PG13” (Parental Guidance and 13 years old,
level 4), ”R” (Restricted, level 6) and ”NC 17”
(from 17 years old, level 7). The DVD will accommodate a total of eight rating steps, as set by the
DVD creators. These additional steps allow for
more critical control of program playback for all
audiences. Level 8: All DVDs can be played. Levels
7 to 2: DVDs for general audiences/ children can
be played. Level 1: DVDs for children can be
played; DVDs for adults/general audiences are
prohibited. Follow the explanations on the screen
to set a new password.

your preferred language in the list of options,
you can select your preferred language by typing
a 4-digit code found in the code list on page 20.
Aspect Ratio: This step selects the TV aspect
ratio, conventional screen shape (4:3) or
widescreen (16:9), according to your TV.
Digital Output: If your system includes 5.1
digital audio surround decoding (Dolby Digital
and/or DTS), select ORIGINAL as the digital output. In that case all audio signals will be output
with their original format. If your system only
includes stereo and/or Dolby Pro Logic, select
PCM. Then all audio signals will be output in
PCM format only (DTS will output no signal).
Scan Type: Sets the video output to Interlace or
Progressive. Before changing the setting to
Progressive, make sure that your video display is
capable of handling progressive scan signals. As
soon as you select progressive scan the scan
type, the Video Output will automatically change
to Component.
The Video Adjustment Submenu contains access
to the Test Screen. First adjust the video display
device (TV) with the help of the Test Screen.
After that the output settings of the player can
be fine-tuned with the Color, Contrast,
Brightness, Tint and Black Level settings. In order
to change the settings, move the cursor to the
“+“ or “-“ icon on the same line as the setting.
Once one of the icons is highlighted, pressing
ENTER will increase or decrease the value of the
setting, as will be shown in the bar behind the
setting. To exit the Video Adjustment Menu,
move the cursor to DONE, and press ENTER.
PCM Limit: The DVD 22 is compatible with
both 48 kHz and 96 kHz sampling, but some
early A/V receivers and surround processors are
not. If your A/V receiver or surround processor is
NOT capable of handling 96 kHz signals, select
the 48 kHz option. If your A/V receiver or
surround processor IS capable of handling
96 kHz signals, select the 96 kHz option to
achieve the greatest audio fidelity available. If
NONE is selected, the complete signal will be
passed through to your A/V Receiver or surround
processor.
Dynamic Range: This setting enables Dolby
Digital recordings to be played back with full
dialogue intelligibility while reducing peak levels.
This smooth level compression prevents abrupt
loud transitions from disturbing others without
reducing the impact of the digital source
perceptibly.
TV Standard: Sets the output video format i.e.
NTSC, PAL or SECAM, of the DVD player. If you
have a multi standard TV, we recommend the
AUTO setting for optimal picture quality.
Video Output: Sets the video output type to
Scart or Component. Scart will be used for most
TV’s. Component will be used for most LCD,
Plasma and projectors.
Scart Output: Selects which kind of video output signals will be routed over the scart. RGB
will be used for most TV’s.
Video Mode: This setting affects only the
Component Video Outputs, and it controls how
the video signals are optimized for progressive
scan display. In most cases, the “automatic”
mode is your best choice, as it senses whether
the disc being played was originally recorded on
video or shot on film. However, in some cases
you may wish to compensate for errors in the
disc authoring that occur when the frame rate is
not properly maintained when films are converted to video. Three choices are available:
• Auto: This is the recommended setting, as it
lets the DVD 22 analyze the signals from the
DVD and adjust the output accordingly.
• Movie: Choose this option for optimal playback of material that was shot on film, even
though you are viewing it on video via a DVD.
• Video: Choose this option for optimal playback of material that was shot directly to
video, such as concerts and sports programming.

Test Screen
Test Screen
When you activate the Test Screen via the OSD
you can activate a still image to test all settings
and the video performance of your TV. With the
vertical color bars you can test the following:
■ proper color intensity setting on your TV,
■ the proper color of each bar, showing if the
proper video standard is turned on: the colors
should be (left to right): black, white, yellow,
cyan (turquoise), green, magenta (purple), red,
blue, black.
■ proper color transition, seen as sharp
separation of the bars, S-Video will be better
than Video, RGB best of all.
■ the performance of the color filter in your TV
(with ”Video” signals), bar edges should show
no vertical crawling dots. Here S-Video and
RGB formats usually give no problems.
With the grey scale and the black/white fields
below the color bars the brightness and contrast
of your screen can be adjusted optimally, see
chapter ”TV Picture Adjustment” below.

TV Picture Adjustment with
Test Screen
These adjustments may be done now, but you
can also make them after setup has been
finalized.
Brightness adjustment:
1. Turn down the color control on your TV until
the color bars are visible in black and white.
2. Adjust the contrast to the lowest level where
you still can see all bars within the grey scale
in the test picture separately and clearly.
3. Adjust the Brightness so that the bars in the
grey scale are all visible. The bar furtherst to
the left has to be as black as possible rather
than grey but the next aside must clearly be
differable. All the bars in the grey scale have to
be gradually and evenly changing from black
to whiter, going from left to right.
Contrast adjustment:
1. Adjust the contrast on your TV until you see a
bright white bar in the right low corner of the
screen and a deep dark black bar at the left.
The optimal contrast setting will depend from
your preference and the surrounding light in
the TV room.
2. If the brightness of the white bar will no more
increase while turning up the contrast or when
the borders of the white ”harman/kardon” text
letters on top will bloom (overlight) into the
black areas, what drasticly will decrease the
sharpness of the script, then the Contrast has
been turned up too much. Reduce the contrast
until these effects will disappear and the video
still looks realistic.
3. If you are watching TV with a usual surrounding daylight, adjust the Contrast so that a normal video picture has about the same looking
as the surroundings in your room. By that way
the eye is relazed when watching the TV picture. This contrast setting may be reduced
when the surrounding light is dimmed, usually
improving the sharpness of a video a lot
thereby.
4. The grey scale in the middle line needs to have
the same clear difference between each bar as
before the contrast adjustment. If not, go back
to the brightness adjustment and repeat step 3
and then the contrast adjustments, making
only minor adjustments each time for
optimisation.
Color adjustment.
1. When the Brightness and the Contrast are set
optimally, turn up the color control to the level
of your perference. Adjust to the level where
the colors look strong but still natural, not
overdone. If the color level is too high,
depending from the TV used some of the bars
will seem wider or the color intensity will not
increase while the control is turned up. Then
the color control must be reduced again. At the
end you should test the color intensity also
with a video, e.g. pictures of natural faces,
flowers, fruit and vegetables and other well
known natural articles of our life most usefull
for an optimal setting of the color intensity.
2. If your TV has a Tint option (with most
European TVs this is available or effective only
with NTSC signals, not with PAL), use the large
white bar below the Greyscale to tweak the
warmth of the picture. Every viewer has a
difference in preference as how the glow of
the picture should be. Some prefer a little
colder picture, some a warmer glow. The Tint
function on your TV and the white bar can be
used to control this. Adjust the Tint to the level
where you feel the white color has the tone
you prefer.
