Connecting Your TV
• Connect the DVD Player to the TV directly. If you
connect the DVD Player to a VCR, TV/VCR combination, or video selector, the playback picture may be
distorted as DVD videos are copy protected.
Using S-Video (not European model)
If your TV (or other equipment) has an S-Video input,
you can use this instead of the standard (composite) output for a better quality picture.
• Use an S-Video cable (not supplied) to connect the S
VIDEO OUTPUT to an S-Video input on your TV (or
monitor or AV receiver).
Line up the small triangle above the jack with the same
mark on the plug before plugging in.
Note:
• To set up the player for use with a progressive scan
TV, see “Video Output settings – Component Out” on
page 46.
Using SCART (European model only)
If your TV has a SCART-type AV input, you can use a
SCART cable to connect this player to your TV. This
type of connection carries both the sound and the picture,
so there’s no need to connect up the AUDIO OUTPUT
L/R and VIDEO OUTPUT jacks.
• Use a SCART cable (not supplied) to connect the AV
CONNECTOR to an AV input on your TV.

Using HDMI
About HDMI
If you have a HDMI equipped monitor or display, you
can connect it to this player using a commercially available HDMI cable.
The HDMI connector outputs uncompressed digital
video, as well as almost every kind of digital audio that
the player is compatible with, including DVD-Video,
Video CD, CD, WMA, MP3, MPEG-4 AAC, DivX and
WMV.
• Use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI OUT interconnect on this player to an HDMI interconnect on a
HDMI-compatible monitor.
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports
both video and audio on a single digital connection for
use with DVD players, DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV
devices. HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection
(HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface (DVI) in one
specification. HDCP is used to protect digital content
transmitted and received by DVI-compliant displays.
HDMI has the capability to support standard, enhanced,
or high-definition video plus standard to multi-channel
surround-sound audio. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 5 gigabytes
per second (with HDTV signals), one connector (instead
of several cables and connectors), and communication
between the AV source and AV devices such as DTVs.

Depending on the component you have connected,
using a DVI connection may result in unreliable signal
transfers.
• When you change the component connected to the
HDMI output, you will also need to change the HDMI
settings to match the new component (see “HDMI
Out” on page 45, “HDMI Resolution” on page 46 and
“HDMI Color” on page 46 to do this).
However, the settings for each component are then
stored in memory (for up to 2 components).
• The HDMI connection is compatible with 44.1 kHz/
48 kHz, 16 bit/20 bit/24 bit 2 channel linear PCM signals, as well as Doldy Digital, DTS and MPEG audio
bitstream.

Connecting to an AV Receiver
Although you can reproduce the DVD Player’s sound
from the TV speakers with the connections on page 19,
connecting with an amplifier provides you high quality
dynamic sounds.
To reproduce Dolby Digital surround and DTS surround
sound, you need to connect to an amplifier with a Dolby
Digital and DTS decoder respectively.
Before connecting
• When you connect the DVD Player to the amplifier, be
sure to turn off the power and unplug both units from
the mains before making any connections. Otherwise,
the speakers may be damaged.
• Connect the plugs securely.
To enjoy multichannel surround sound you need to connect this player to an AV receiver using a digital output.
Oceanian model has both coaxial and optical digital
jacks; use whichever is convenient.
North American and European models have only coaxial
digital jack.
In addition to a digital connection, we recommend also
connecting using the stereo analog connection.
To record the audio from a CD-R disc etc. to a cassette
or CD recorder that’s connected to the AV receiver, and
when your AV receiver has Zone2, you must connect the
DV-SP405’s analog audio outputs to the AV receiver.
You’ll probably also want to connect a video output to
your AV receiver. You can use any of the video outputs
available on this player (the illustration shows a standard
(composite) connection).
1. Connect the DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT jack on
this player to a digital input on your AV receiver.
This enables you to listen to surround sound.
For a coaxial connection, use a coaxial cable (supplied)
to connect the COAXIAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT
jack to a coaxial input on your AV receiver.
For an optical connection (Oceanian model only), use an
optical cable (not supplied) to connect the OPTICAL
DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT jack to an optical input on
your AV receiver.
2. Connect the ANALOG AUDIO OUTPUT L/R
and VIDEO OUTPUT jacks on this player to a set
of analog audio and video inputs on your AV
receiver.

Many DVD-Video discs feature menus from which you
can select what you want to watch. They may also give

Sometimes DVD-Video menus are displayed automatically when you start playback; others only appear when
you press MENU or TOP MENU.
Some Video CD have menus from which you can choose
what you want to watch. These are called PBC (Playback

Hint:
• After I load a DVD disc, it ejects automatically after a
few seconds!
→ Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for your
player. The region number should be printed on
the disc; check it against the region number of the
player (which you can find on the rear panel). See
also “DVD-Video regions” on page 53.
→ If the region number is OK, it may be that the disc
is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc and look for
signs of damage. See also Taking care of your
player and discs on page 11.
• Why won’t the disc I loaded play?
→ First check that you loaded the disc the right way
up (label side up), and that it’s clean and undamaged. See Taking care of your player and discs on
page 11 for information on cleaning discs.
→ If a disc loaded correctly won’t play, it’s probably
an incompatible format or disc type, such as
DVD-Audio or DVD-ROM. See “Supported
Discs” on page 8 for more on disc compatibility.
• I have a widescreen TV so why are there black bars at
the top and bottom of the screen when I play some
discs?
→ Some movie formats are such that even when
played on a widescreen TV, black bars are necessary at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not
a malfunction.
• I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the player to show
widescreen DVDs in pan & scan format, so why do I
still get black bars top and bottom with some discs?
→ Some discs override the display preferences of the
player, so even if you have “4:3 (Pan&Scan)”
selected, those discs will still be shown in letter
box format. This is not a malfunction.
• I’ve connected to a HDMI compatible component but
I can’t get any signal and the front panel HDMI indicator won’t light!
→ Make sure that you’ve selected this player as the
HDMI input in the settings for the component
you’re using. You may need to refer to the instruction manual of the component to do this. See Connecting using HDMI on page 22 for more on
HDMI compatibility.
• There’s no picture from the HDMI output!
→ This player cannot display pictures from DVI
compatible sources. See Connecting using HDMI
on page 22 for more on HDMI compatibility.
Make sure the resolution on this player matches
that of the component you have connected using
HDMI. See “HDMI Resolution” on page 46 to
change the HDMI resolution.

of disc loaded.
• Some DVDs restrict the use of some functions (random or repeat, for example) in some or all parts of the

• When playing Video CD, some of the functions are
not available during PBC playback. If you want to use
them, start the disc playing using a number button to

Notes:
• “Virtual Surround” doesn’t work with DTS, through
either the analog or digital outputs.
• 96kHz linear PCM audio is automatically downsampled to 48kHz if “Virtual Surround” is switched on.
• If the player is outputting Dolby Digital, DTS or
MPEG bitstream audio (in other words, no conversion
to PCM), “Virtual Surround” has no effect on the
audio from the digital output. See “Digital Audio Out
settings” on page 45 for how to set up the digital output formats.
• How good the surround effect is varies with the disc.
• Settings: “High”, “Medium”, “Low”, “Off (default)”
When watching Dolby Digital DVDs at low volume, it’s
easy to lose the quieter sounds completely—including
some of the dialog. Switching “Audio DRC (Dynamic
Range Control)” to on can help by bringing up the quieter sounds, while controlling loud peaks.
How much of a difference you hear depends on the material you’re listening to. If the material doesn’t have wide
variations in volume, you may not notice much change.
Notes:
• “Audio DRC” is only effective with Dolby Digital
audio sources.
• “Audio DRC” is only effective through the digital output when “Digital Out” is set to “On”, and “Dolby
Digital Out” is set to “Dolby Digital > PCM” (see
“Digital Audio Out settings” on page 45).
• The effect of “Audio DRC” depends on your speakers
and AV receiver settings.
Dialog
• Settings: “High”, “Medium”, “Low”, “Off (default)”
The “Dialog” feature is designed to make the dialog

Parental Lock
• Default level: “Off”; Default password: none; Default
Country/Area code: us (2119)
To give you some control over what your children watch
on your DVD player, some DVD-Video discs feature a
“Parental Lock” level. If your player is set to a lower
level than the disc, the disc won’t play.
Some discs also support the Country/Area Code feature.
The player does not play certain scenes on these discs,
depending on the Country/Area code you set.
Notes:
• Not all discs use “Parental Lock”, and will play without requiring the password first.
• If you forget your password, you’ll need to reset the
player to register a new password (see “Resetting the
player” on page 52).
Registering a new password
You must register a password before you can change the
Parental Lock level or enter a Country/Area code.

Options
If you’ve selected “DTS > PCM” in “DTS Out” on
page 45, you can choose the way the signal is downmixed to PCM audio. “STEREO” will downmix the
DTS signal to 2-channel stereo, whereas “Lt/Rt” will
downmix to a 2-channel signal compatible with Dolby
surround matrix decoders. (This allows you to hear surround sound if your AV receiver or amplifier has Dolby
Pro Logic capability.)
About DivX® VOD content
In order to play DivX VOD (video on demand) content
on this player, you first need to register the player with
your DivX VOD content provider. You do this by generating a DivX VOD registration code, which you submit
to your provider.
Important:
• DivX VOD content is protected by a DRM (Digital
Rights Management) system. This restricts playback
of content to specific, registered devices.
• If you load a disc that contains DivX VOD content not
authorized for your player, the message “Authorization Error” is displayed and the content will not play.
• Resetting the player (as described in “Resetting the
player” in the main Operating Instructions) will not
cause you to lose your registration code.

expired DivX VOD content (for example, content that
has zero remaining plays), the message “Rental Expired”

If your DivX VOD content allows an unlimited number
of plays, then you may load the disc into your player and
play the content as often as you like, and no message will

Additional information
Screen sizes and disc formats
DVD-Video discs come in several different screen aspect
ratios, ranging from TV programs, which are generally
4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an aspect
ratio of up to about 7:3.
Televisions, too, come in different aspect ratios; “standard” 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.
Resetting the player
Use this procedure to reset all the player’s settings to the
factory default.
1
Switch the player into standby.
2
Using the front panel buttons, hold
down the (stop) button and
press STANDBY/ON to switch the
player back on.
All the player’s settings are now reset.
Widescreen TV users
If you have a widescreen TV, the “TV Screen” setting
(page 46) of this player should be set to “16:9 (Wide)” or
“16:9 (Compressed)”.
When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format with the
“16:9 (Wide)” setting, you can use the TV controls to
select how the picture is presented. Your TV may offer
various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions
that came with your TV for details.
Please note that some movie aspect ratios are wider than
16:9, so even though you have a widescreen TV, these
discs will still play in a “letter box” style with black bars
at the top and bottom of the screen.
Standard TV users
If you have a standard TV, the “TV Screen” setting
(page 46) of this player should be set to “4:3 (Letter
Box)” or “4:3 (Pan&Scan)”, depending on which you
prefer.
Set to “4:3 (Letter Box)”, widescreen discs are shown
with black bars top and bottom.
Setting the TV system (Not North
American model)
The default setting of this player is “AUTO”, and unless
you notice that the picture is distorted when playing
some discs, you should leave it set to “AUTO”. If you
experience picture distortion with some discs, set the TV
system to match your country or region’s system. Doing
this, however, may restrict the kinds of disc you can
watch. The table below shows what kinds of disc are
compatible with each setting (“AUTO” , “PAL” and
“NTSC”).
STANDBY/ON
Set to “4:3 (Pan&Scan)”, widescreen discs are shown
with the left and right sides cropped. Although the picture looks larger, you don’t actually see the whole picture.
Please note that many widescreen discs override the
player’s settings so that the disc is shown in letter box
format regardless of the setting.
Note:
• Using the “16:9 (Wide)” or “16:9 (Compressed)” setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or either of the 4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in a distorted
picture.

Glossary
Analog audio
File extension
An electrical signal that directly represents sound. Compare this to digital audio which can be an electrical signal, but is an indirect representation of sound. See also
“Digital audio”.
A tag added to the end of a filename to indicate the type
of file. For example, “.mp3” indicates an MP3 file.
Aspect ratio
The width of a TV screen relative to its height. Conventional TVs are 4:3 (in other words, the screen is almost
square); widescreen models are 16:9 (the screen is
almost twice as wide as it is high).
Digital audio
An indirect representation of sound by numbers. During
recording, the sound is measured at discrete intervals
(44,100 times a second for CD audio) by an analog-todigital converter, generating a stream of numbers.
On playback, a digital-to-analog converter generates an
analog signal based on these numbers. See also “Sampling frequency” and “Analog audio”.
DivX
DivX is a media technology created by DivX, Inc. DivX
media files contain compressed video. DivX files can
also include advanced media features like menus, subtitles, and alternate audiotracks.
Dolby Digital
Using a maximum of 5.1 channels of audio, this high
quality surround system is used in many of the finer
movie theaters around the world.
The on-screen display shows which channels are active,
for example showing 3/2.1. The 3 being the two front
channels and the center channel; the 2 being the surround channels, and the .1 being the LFE channel.
DRM
DRM (digital rights management) is a type of server
software developed to enable secure distribution of paid
content over the web, recently incorporated by WMA
(Windows Media Audio).
DTS
DTS stands for Digital Theater Systems. DTS is a surround system different from Dolby Digital that has
become a popular surround sound format for movies.
Dynamic range
The difference between the quietest and loudest sounds
possible in an audio signal (without distorting or getting
lost in noise).
Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks are capable of a very
wide dynamic range, delivering dramatic cinema-like
effects.
EXIF (Exchangeable Image File)
A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for digital
still cameras. Digital cameras from various manufacturers use this compressed file format which carries date,
time and thumbnail information, as well as the picture
data.
HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a highspeed digital interface which has the capability to support standard, enhanced, or highdefinition video plus
standard to multichannel surround-sound audio on a single digital connection. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 5 gigabytes
per second and communication between the AV source
and AV devices such as DTVs.
ISO 9660 format
International standard for the volume and file structure
of CD-ROM discs.
JPEG
A file format used for still images, such as photographs
and illustrations. JPEG files are identified by the file
extension “.jpg” or “.JPG”. Most digital cameras use this
format.
MP3
MP3 (MPEG1 audio layer 3) is a compressed audio file
format. Files are recognized by their file extension
“.mp3” or “.MP3”.
MPEG-4 AAC
MPEG-4 AAC is a compressed stereo audio file format.
Files are recognized by the extention ‘.m4a’.
Note that some files purchased with copyright protection
(such as files from the iTunes store) may not playback.
MPEG audio
An audio format used on Video CDs and some DVD
discs. This unit can convert MPEG audio to PCM format
for wider compatibility with digital recorders and AV
amplifiers. See also “PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)”.
MPEG video
The video format used for Video CDs and DVDs. Video
CD uses the older MPEG-1 standard, while DVD uses
the newer and much better quality MPEG-2 standard.
PBC (PlayBack Control) (Video CD only)
A system of navigating a Video CD through on-screen
menus recorded onto the disc. Especially good for discs
that you would normally not watch from beginning to
end all at once—karaoke discs, for example.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
The most common system of encoding digital audio,
found on CDs and DAT. Excellent quality, but requires a
lot of data compared to formats such as Dolby Digital
and MPEG audio. For compatibility with digital audio
recorders (CD, MD and DAT) and AV amplifiers with
digital inputs, this unit can convert Dolby Digital, DTS
and MPEG audio to PCM. See also “Digital audio”.

DV-SP405_En.book Page 56 Tuesday, May 29, 2007 2:48 PM
Glossary—Continued
Progressive scan video
All the lines that make up a video picture are updated in
one pass (compared to interlace which takes two passes
to update the whole picture).
Regions (DVD-Video only)
These associate discs and players with particular areas of
the world. This unit will only play discs that have compatible region codes. You can find the region code of
your unit by looking on the rear panel. Some discs are
compatible with more than one region (or all regions).
Sampling frequency
The rate at which sound is measured to be turned into
digital audio data. The higher the rate, the better the
sound quality, but the more digital information is generated. Standard CD audio has a sampling frequency of
44.1kHz, which means 44,100 samples (measurements)
per second. See also “Digital audio”.
WMA
WMA is short for Windows Media Audio and refers to
an audio compression technology developed by
Microsoft Corporation. WMA content can be encoded
by using Windows Media® Player for Windows® XP,
Windows Media® Player 9 Series, or Windows Media®
Player 10 Series.
WMV
WMV is an acronym for Windows Media Video and
refers to a video compression technology developed by
Microsoft Corporation. Files are recognized by the file
extension “.wmv”.

• Static electricity or other external influences may cause malfunctioning of this unit. In this case, unplug the power
cord and then plug back in. This will usually reset the unit for proper operation. If this does not correct the problem,
please consult your nearest our customer center.
The DV-SP405 contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations, severe
interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely even that this
should happen, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it back in again.
