About HDMI
Compatible functions
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital interface standard for
connecting TVs, projectors, Blu­ray Disc/DVD players, set­top boxes, and other
video components. Until now, several separate video and audio cables have been
required to connect AV components. With HDMI, a single cable can carry control
signals, digital video, and digital audio (2 ch PCM, multichannel digital audio, and
multichannel PCM).
HDMI CEC functionality:
By connecting devices and HDMI cables that comply with the CEC (Consumer
Electronics Control) specification of the HDMI standard, a variety of linked
operation become possible between devices. You can enjoy features such as
linking input switching with the input selector and players, control volume using the
remote controller of the TV, and automatically switching this unit to standby when
the TV is turned off.
The unit is designed to link with products that comply with the CEC standard, and
that linked operation is not always guaranteed with all CEC devices. For linked
functions to work properly, do not connect more CEC­compliant components than
the quantities specified below, to the HDMI jack.
Blu­ray Disc/DVD players: up to 3 units
Blu­ray Disc/DVD recorders: up to 3 units
Cable TV tuner, terrestrial digital tuner, and satellite broadcasting tuner: up to 4
units
Operation has been confirmed on the following devices from other manufacturers:
(As of February 2016)
Toshiba brand televisions; Sharp brand televisions; Toshiba brand players and
recorders; Sharp brand players and recorders (when used with a Sharp brand
television)
ARC(Audio Return Channel) :
By connection a TV that supports ARC with a single HDMI cable, you can not only
output the audio and video from this unit to the TV, but also input the audio from
the TV to this unit.
HDMI Standby Through:
Even if this unit is in standby, the input signals from AV components are
transmitted to the TV.
Deep Color:
By connecting devices supporting Deep Color, video signals input from the
devices can be reproduced on the TV with even more colors.
x.v.Color™:
This technology realizes even more realistic colors by broadening the color gamut.
3D:
You can transmit 3D video signals from AV components to the TV.
4K:
This unit supports 4K (3840×2160p) and 4K SMPTE (4096×2160p) video signals.
LipSync:
This setting automatically corrects any desynchronization between the video and
audio signals based on data from the HDMI LipSync compatible TV.
Copyright Protection:
The unit supports Revision 1.4 and Revision 2.2 (HDMI OUT MAIN/SUB and
HDMI IN1 to 3 only) of the HDCP (High­bandwidth Digital Content Protection), a
copy­protection system for digital video signals. Other devices connected to the
unit must also support HDCP.

Listening Modes
Selecting Listening Modes
You can change the listening mode during play by pressing repeatedly
"AUTO/DIRECT", "SURR", or "STEREO".
AUTO/DIRECT button
Press repeatedly and the listening modes suited to the input signal are switched
between "Auto Surround", "Direct", and "Pure Direct". After selecting one of them,
"Auto Surround" (or "Direct" or "Pure Direct") is displayed, then the most suitable
listening mode for the audio format is selected automatically (Dolby Digital for
multi­channel input signals, Stereo for 2 channel input signals, etc.) and an
indicator such as "Dolby D" is displayed on the display.
The "Direct" mode shuts down some processing that can affect sound quality,
such as the tone control features, so you can enjoy even better sound quality. The
"Pure Direct" mode shuts down even more processes that affects sound quality, so
you get a more faithful reproduction of the original sound. In this case, the speaker
calibration made with MCACC is invalid.
SURR button
By pressing repeatedly you can select the audio format of the signals being input
and switch between a variety of listening modes. Select the mode that suits your
preference. The selected listening mode is displayed on the display.
STEREO button
You can select the "Stereo" mode to playback only from the front speakers and
subwoofer.
For details on the effects of each of the listening modes see "Listening Mode
Effects". For listening modes selectable for each of the audio formats in the
input signals, refer to "Selectable Listening Modes".

and Neo:6 Music after updating.)
In alphabetical order
Action
Mode suitable for movies with a lot of action scenes.
AdvancedGame
Mode suitable for game content.
Classical
Suitable for classical or operatic music. This mode emphasizes the surround
channels in order to widen the stereo image, and simulates the natural
reverberation of a large hall.
Dolby Atmos
This mode faithfully reproduces the sound design recorded in the Dolby Atmos
audio format.
The Dolby Atmos audio format has been implemented in movie theaters equipped
with the latest facilities and enables a revolutionary sound experience in home
theaters. Unlike existing surround systems, Dolby Atmos doesn't rely on channels,
but rather enables the accurate placement of sound objects that have independent
motion in a three­dimensional space with even greater clarity. Dolby Atmos is an
optional audio format on Blu­ray Discs and achieves a three­dimensional sound
field by introducing a sound field above the listener.
To enable transfer of this audio format, connect via HDMI cable and set audio
output on the player to bitstream output.
Dolby D (Dolby Digital)
This mode faithfully reproduces the sound design recorded in the Dolby Digital
audio format.
Dolby Digital is a multi­channel digital format developed by Dolby Laboratories,
Inc. widely adopted for use in movie production. It is also a standard audio format
on DVD­Video and Blu­ray Discs. It is possible to record a maximum of 5.1
channels on a DVD­Video or Blu­ray Disc; two front channels, a center channel,
two surround channels, and the LFE channel dedicated to the bass region (sound
elements for the subwoofer).
To enable transfer of this audio format, connect via digital cable and set audio
output on the player to bitstream output.
Dolby D+ (Dolby Digital Plus)
This mode faithfully reproduces the sound design recorded in the Dolby Digital
Plus audio format.
The Dolby Digital Plus format is a revision based on Dolby Digital, increasing the
number of channels and endeavoring to improve sound quality by giving more
flexibility in data bit rates. Dolby Digital Plus is used as an optional audio format on
Blu­ray Discs, based on 5.1ch, but with additional channels such as the Surround
Back channel added for a maximum of 7.1ch.
To enable transfer of this audio format, connect via HDMI cable and set audio
output on the player to bitstream output.

Troubleshooting
Before starting the procedure
Problems may be solved by simply turning the power on/off or
disconnecting/connecting the power cord, which is easier than working on the
connection, setting and operating procedure. Try the simple measures on both the
unit and the connected device. If the problem is that the video or audio is not
output or the HDMI linked operation does not work, disconnecting/connecting the
HDMI cable may solve it. When reconnecting, be careful not to wind the HDMI
cable since if wound the HDMI cable may not fit well. After reconnecting, turn off
and on the unit and the connected device.
This unit contains a microPC 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 event that this happens,
unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least 5 seconds, and then
plug it back in.
Our company is not responsible for reparations for damages (such as CD
rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by the unit's malfunction.
Before you record important data, make sure that the material will be recorded
correctly.
Troubleshooting
Power
Cannot turn on the unit
Make sure that the power cord is properly plugged into the wall outlet.
Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait 5 seconds or more, then plug it
in again.
The unit turns off unexpectedly
The unit automatically switches to standby when the "System Setup" ­
"Hardware" ­ "Power Management" ­ "Auto Standby" setting in the Home
screen functions.
The protective circuit function may have been activated. If this has occurred,
"AMP Diag Mode" appears on the display when the unit is turned on again, and
the unit enters diagnostic mode. If the results of the diagnosis is that there is no
problem, the "AMP Diag Mode" display disappears and you can use the unit
normally again. If "CHECK SP WIRE" appears on the display, the speaker
cables may be short­circuited. Make sure bare speaker wires are not touching
each other or the back panel of the unit, then turn the unit on again. If "NG" is
displayed, immediately unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and contact
your dealer.
The protective circuit function may have been activated because the
temperature of the unit rose abnormally. If this happens, then the power will
continue to turn off after you have turned the unit on again. Make sure the unit
has plenty of space for ventilation around it, wait for the unit to cool down
sufficiently, and then try turning it on again.
WARNING: If smoke, smell or abnormal noise is produced by the unit, unplug the
power cord from the wall outlet immediately and contact the dealer or our
company's support.
Troubleshooting
Audio
Make sure that the speaker setup microphone is not still connected.

input jack on this unit is correct.
Make sure that none of the connecting cables are bent, twisted, or damaged.
If the MUTE indicator on the display flashes, press on the remote controller
to cancel muting.
While headphones are connected to the PHONES jack, no sound is output
from the speakers.
When "System Setup" ­ "Source" ­ "Audio Select" ­ "Fixed PCM" in the Home
Menu is set to "On", no sound is played when signals other than PCM are
input. Change the setting to Off.
Check the following if the above does not fix the problem:
There is no sound from the TV
No sound from a connected player
A speaker produces no sound
The subwoofer produces no sound
Noise can be heard
The beginning of audio received by an HDMI IN cannot be heard
Sound suddenly reduces
Troubleshooting
There is no sound from the TV
Change the input selector on this unit to the position of the terminal to which
the TV is connected.
If the TV doesn't support the ARC function, along with connection by HDMI,
connect the TV and this unit using a digital optical cable, digital coaxial cable,
or analog audio cable.
Troubleshooting
No sound from a connected player
Change the input selector on this unit to the position of the terminal to which
the player is connected.
Check the digital audio output setting on the connected component. On some
game consoles, such as those that support DVD, the default setting is off.
With some DVD­Video discs, you need to select an audio output format from a
menu.
Troubleshooting
A speaker produces no sound
Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables (+/-) is correct, and that no
bare wires are in contact with the metal part of speaker terminals.
Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
Check in "Connect the Speakers" in the Basic Manual that the speaker
connections have been made correctly. Settings for the speaker connection
environment need to be made in "Full Auto MCACC" in Initial Setup. Check in
"Initial Setup" in the Basic Manual.
Depending on the source and current listening mode, not much sound may be
produced by the surround speakers. Select another listening mode to see if
sound is output.
If you are installing surround back speakers (for compatible models only),
surround speakers are required.
A maximum of 5.1 ch playback is possible when Bi­Amping connection is used
(for compatible models only). Further, make sure you remove the jumper bar on
the speakers when using Bi­Amping connection.
Troubleshooting
The subwoofer produces no sound
When you play source material that contains no information in the LFE
channel, the subwoofer produces no sound.
Troubleshooting
Noise can be heard
Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power cords, speaker cables, etc.
may degrade the audio performance, so refrain from doing it.
An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try repositioning your cables.
Troubleshooting
The beginning of audio received by an HDMI IN cannot be heard
Since it takes longer to identify the format of an HDMI signal than it does for
other digital audio signals, audio output may not start immediately.
Troubleshooting
Sound suddenly reduces
When the temperature inside the unit exceeds a certain temperature for
extended periods, the volume may be reduced automatically to protect the
circuits.
Troubleshooting
Listening Modes
To enjoy digital surround playback, such as Dolby Digital, the audio signals
need to pass through a connection via HDMI cable, digital coaxial cable, or
digital optical cable. Audio output should be set to bitstream output on the
connected Blu­ray Disc player or other device.
Press on the remote controller several times to switch the display of the
main unit to check the input format.
Check the following if the above does not fix the problem:
Cannot select a desired listening mode
There is no sound with Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, and DTS­HD Master
Audio (for compatible models only)
Troubleshooting
Cannot select a desired listening mode
Depending on the connecting status of the speaker, some listening modes may
not be selected. Check in "Selectable Listening Modes" in "Listening Modes" in
the Advanced Manual.
Troubleshooting
There is no sound with Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, and DTS­HD Master
Audio (for compatible models only)
You need to connect surround back speakers or height speakers to enjoy Dolby
Atmos. Furthermore, Dolby Atmos can only be enjoyed when the input signals
are Dolby Atmos.
If you cannot output formats such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, or DTS­HD
Master Audio according to the format of the source, in the Blu­ray Disc player
settings try setting "BD video supplementary sound" (or re­encode, secondary
sound, video additional audio, etc.) to "Off". Change the listening mode for
each source after changing the setting to confirm.
About DTS signals
With media that switches suddenly from DTS to PCM, PCM playback may not
start immediately. In such cases, you should stop your player for about 3
seconds and then resume playback.
With some CD and LD players, you will not be able to playback DTS material
properly even though your player is connected to a digital input on the unit.
This is usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed (e.g., output
level, sampling rate, or frequency response changed) and the unit does not
recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such cases, you may hear noise.
Playing DTS program material, using the pause, fast forward, or fast reverse
function on your player may produce a short audible noise. This is not a
malfunction.
Troubleshooting
Video
Confirm that the connection between the output jack on the device and the
input jack on this unit is correct.
Make sure that none of the connecting cables are bent, twisted, or damaged.
When the TV image is blurry or unclear, power code or connection cables of
the unit may have interfered. In that case, keep distance between TV antenna
cable and cables of the unit.
Make sure the switching of input screens is proper at the monitor side such as
a TV.
Check the following if the above does not fix the problem:
There is no video
There is no picture from a source connected to an HDMI IN terminal.
Images flicker
Video and audio are out of synch
Troubleshooting
There is no video
Change the input selector on this unit to the position of the terminal to which
the player is connected.
Troubleshooting
There is no picture from a source connected to an HDMI IN terminal.
To display video from the connected player on the TV screen while the unit is in
standby, you need to enable "System Setup" ­ "Hardware" ­ "HDMI" ­ "HDMI
Standby Through" in the Home screen. Refer to "HDMI Setup" in "Setup" in the
Basic Manual for information about HDMI Standby Through.
To output video to a TV connected to the HDMI OUT SUB jack (for compatible
models only), in the "AV Adjust" menu displayed when is pressed on the
remote controller select the HDMI OUT jack for output in "Other" ­ "HDMI Out".
If you connect a player supporting HDCP2.2, be sure to connect it to one of the
HDMI IN1 to IN3 jacks of the unit.
Check if "Resolution Error" is displayed on the main unit display when video
input via HDMI IN jack is not displayed. In this case, the TV does not support
the resolution of the video input from the player. Change the setting on the
player.
Reliable operation with an HDMI­DVI adapter is not guaranteed. In addition,
video signals from a PC are not supported.
Troubleshooting
Images flicker
It is possible that the resolution of the player is not compatible with the TV's
resolution. If you have connected the player to this unit with an HDMI cable, try
changing the output resolution on the player. There also may be an
improvement if you change the screen mode on the TV.

Troubleshooting
Wireless LAN Network
Try plugging/unplugging the power supply of wireless LAN router and the unit,
check the wireless LAN router power­on status, and try reboot of the wireless
LAN router.
Check the following if the above does not fix the problem:
Cannot access wireless LAN network
Connected to an SSID different to the SSID selected
Playback is interrupted and communication does not work
Troubleshooting
Cannot access wireless LAN network
The wireless LAN router setting may be switched to Manual. Return the setting
to Auto.
Try the manual set­up. The connection may succeed.
When the wireless LAN router setting is at stealth mode (mode to hide the
SSID key) or when ANY connection is off, the SSID is not displayed. Change
the setting and try again.
Check that the setting of SSID and encryption (WEP, etc.) is correct. Make sure
the network settings of the unit is properly set.
Connection to an SSID that includes multi­byte characters is not supported.
Name the SSID of the wireless LAN router using single­byte alphanumeric
characters only and try again.
Troubleshooting
Connected to an SSID different to the SSID selected
Some wireless LAN routers allow you to set multiple SSIDs for one unit. If you
use the automatic setting button on such a router, you may end up connecting
with a different SSID from the SSID you wanted to connect to. Use the
connection method requiring you to enter a password if this happens.
Troubleshooting
Playback is interrupted and communication does not work
You may not receive radio waves due to bad radio wave conditions. Shorten
the distance from the wireless LAN access point or remove obstacles to
improve visibility, and try again. Place the unit away from microwave ovens or
other access points. It is recommended to place the wireless LAN router
(access point) and the unit in the same room.
If there is a metallic object near the unit, wireless LAN connection may not be
possible as the metal can effect on the radio wave.
When other wireless LAN devices are used near the unit, several issues such
as interrupted playback and communication may occur. You can avoid these
issues by changing the channel of your wireless LAN router. For instructions on
changing channels, see the instruction manual provided with your wireless LAN
router.
Troubleshooting
Multi­zone function (for compatible models only)
Cannot ZONE output audio of external AV component
Depending on the model, input by HDMI cable may not be supported. Check in
"Multi­zone Connection" in the Basic Manual, and if input by HDMI cable is not
supported, connect using a cable that is supported.
The audio from externally connected AV components can only be output when
the audio is analog or 2ch PCM audio signals. If you have connected the AV
component to this unit with a digital cable, the audio output of the AV
component needs to be set to PCM.
Others
Settings are required in Initial Setup, "Multi Zone Setup" to use the multi­zone
feature. Check in "Initial Setup" in the Basic Manual.
If the audio signal is from the NET input selector, zone output is not possible for
DSD and Dolby TrueHD audio signals.
Troubleshooting
Remote Controller
Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity.
Install new batteries. Do not mix different types of batteries, or old and new
batteries.
Make sure that the unit is not subjected to direct sunshine or inverter­type
fluorescent lights. Relocate if necessary.
If the unit is installed in a rack or cabinet with colored­glass doors or if the
doors are closed, the remote controller may not work reliably.
After operating the Multi­zone function (for compatible models only), the remote
controller may have switched to the mode for operating ZONE output audio.
Check "Multi­zone" in "Playback" in the Basic Manual to switch the remote
controller back to the mode for operating in the main room.
Troubleshooting
Display, OSD
The display doesn't light
The display may go dim while the Dimmer is working, and may also turn off (for
compatible models only). Press DIMMER button and change the brightness
level of the display.
Troubleshooting
Others
Strange noises can be heard from the unit
If you have connected another unit to the same wall outlet as this unit, this
noise may be an effect from the other unit. If the symptoms improve by
unplugging the power cord of the other unit, use different wall outlets for this
unit and the other unit.
When performing Full Auto MCACC, the message "Noise Error" appears
This can be caused by a malfunction in your speaker unit. Check if the unit
produces normal sounds.
DRC function does not work
Make sure the source material is Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby
TrueHD, or DTS.
Reference Information
Radio Wave Caution
This unit uses radio waves in the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.
There are nations and regions where the use of particular 5 GHz bands are
prohibited outdoors, so do not use this unit outside in those places.
2.4 GHz radio waves are used by a variety of devices, as shown in lists 1 and 2
below.
1. Devices which use a 2.4 GHz radio wave frequency
Cordless phones
Cordless facsimiles
Microwave ovens
Wireless LAN devices (IEEE802.11b/g/n)
Wireless AV equipment
Wireless controllers for game systems
Microwave oven­based health aids
Video transmitter
Specific type of external monitor and LCD display
2. Less common devices which use a 2.4 GHz radio wave frequency
Anti­theft systems
Amateur radio stations (HAM)
Warehouse logistic management systems
Discrimination systems for train or emergency vehicles
If these devices and the AV receiver are used at the same time, the audio may be
undesirably stopped or disturbed due to a radio wave interference.
Suggestions for improvement
Switch off the devices which emit the radio wave.
Place the interfering devices away from the AV receiver.
The AV receiver uses radio wave, and a third person can receive the wave on
purpose or accidentally. Do not use the communication for important or fatal
matters.
We assume no responsibility whatsoever for any error or damage of network
environment or access device resulting from the use of this apparatus.
Confirm with the provider or access device maker for more information.
Reference Information
Scope of Operation
Use of the AV receiver is limited to home use. (Transmission distances may be
reduced depending on communication environment.)
In the following locations, poor condition or inability to receive radio waves may
cause the audio to be interrupted or stopped:
In reinforced concrete buildings or steel framed or iron framed buildings.
Near large metallic furniture.
In a crowd of people or near a building or obstacle.
In a location exposed to the magnetic field, static electricity or radio wave
interference from radio communication equipment using the same frequency
band (2.4 GHz) as the AV receiver, such as a 2.4 GHz wireless LAN device
(IEEE802.11b/g/n) or microwave oven.
If you live in a heavily populated residential area (apartment, townhouse, etc.)
and if your neighbor's microwave oven is placed near your AV receiver, you
may experience radio wave interference. If this occurs, move your AV receiver
to a different place.
When the microwave oven is not in use, there will be no radio wave
interference.
Reference Information
Radio Wave Reflections
The radio waves received by the AV receiver include the radio wave coming
directly from the devices and waves coming from various directions due to
reflections by walls, furniture and building (reflected waves). The reflected waves
(due to obstacles and reflecting objects) further produce a variety of reflected
waves as well as variation in reception condition depending on locations. If the
audio cannot be received properly due to this phenomenon, try moving the
location of the wireless LAN device a little.
Also note that audio may be interrupted due to the reflected waves when a person
crosses or approaches the space between the AV receiver and the wireless LAN
device.
We assume no responsibility whatsoever for any damages resulting from the
use of this apparatus except in the cases deemed acceptable under the
applicable laws and regulations.
Operation in all environment is not guaranteed for wireless LAN. The
communication may not be possible or have desirable communication speed.
