Important notes for users in the
U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13
Amp plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug
proceed as follows:
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 Amp,
A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your jack
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board should
not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed to avoid
a possible shock hazard should it be inserted into
a 13 Amp jack elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
● As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath of
the lead - not simply over the two wires.

S-Video terminal <A>
Video Connections
If your AV receiver has video output jacks,
connect your receiver (and then to your
TV) so that you can use one TV for several
different video sources (LD, VCR etc.) by
simply switching the input source selector
of your receiver.
The player has three types of video output
jacks. Use one of them in accordance with
the input jacks of the equipment to be
connected.
S (separate) video connection achieves a
clearer picture than composite video
connection by separating color and
luminance when transmitting signals. Use
commercially available S-video cable.
Receiver (and TV) with S-video input is
required.
Composite Video terminal <B>
Use audio/video cable supplied with this
unit when connecting the player to a TV.

Component video connection achieves
high fidelity in reproducing colors (better
performance than S-video connection),
separating video signal into luminance (Y,
terminal color-coded as green), and color
difference (Pb, blue/Pr, red). Use
commercially available coaxial cables.
Receiver (and TV) with component input is
required. Observe the color of each jack
when connecting. If your receiver does not
have component output jacks, connecting
the player’s component output directly to
your TV’s component input can reproduce
better video image.
SCART Connection <D>
If your TV has only terminal for video
input, and you want to connect it directly
to this unit, you can use this unit’s SCART
output jack.
Note:
– Ensure that the “TV” indication on SCART
cable is connected to the TV set and “DVD”
indication on SCART cable is connected to
this unit.

Glossary
Multichannel: DVD is specified to have each sound
track constitute one sound field. Multichannel refers to
a structure of sound tracks having three or more channels.
Aspect ratio: The ratio of vertical and horizontal sizes
of a displayed image. The horizontal vs. vertical ratio of
conventional TVs. is 4:3, and that of widescreens is 16:9.
Parental Control: A function of the DVD to limit playback of the disc by the age of the users according to the
limitation level in each country. The limitation varies
from disc to disc; when it is activated, playback will be
prohibited if the software’s level is higher than the userset level.
AUDIO OUT Jacks: Jacks on the back of the DVD
System that send audio to another system (TV, Stereo,etc.).
Bit Rate: The amount of data used to hold a givenlength of music; measured in kilobits per seconds, or
kbps. Or, the speed at which you record. Generally, the
higher the bit rate, or the higher the recording speed,
the better the sound quality. However, higher bit rates
use more space on a Disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD that are smaller than titles. A title is composed of
several chapters. Each chapter is assigned a chapter
number enabling you to locate the chapter you want.
Component Video Out Jacks: Jacks on the back of
the DVD System that send high-quality video to a TV
that has Component Video In jacks (R/G/B,Y/Pb/Pr,
etc.).
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for allowing
selection of images, sounds, subtitles, multi-angles, etc
recorded on a DVD.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into numerical
values. Digital sound is available when you use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT COAXIAL or OPTICAL jacks. These
jacks send audio through multiple channels, instead of
just two channels as analog does.
DivX 3.11/4x/5x: The DivX codec is a patentpending,
MPEG-4 based video compression technology, developed by DivXNetworks, Inc., that can shrink digital
video to sizes small enough to be transported over the
internet, while maintaining high visual quality.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system developed by
Dolby Laboratories containing up to six channels of digital audio (front left and right, surround left and right,
center and subwoofer).
DTS: Digital Theatre Systems. This is a surround sound
system, but it is different from Dolby Digital. The formats were developed by different companies.
English
Analog: Sound that has not been turned into numbers.
Analog sound varies, while digital sound has specific
numerical values. These jacks send audio through two
channels, the left and right.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A system for converting analog sound signal to digital signal for later processing, with no data compression used in conversion.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a
Video CD or SVCD that supports PBC, you can enjoy
interactive-type software as well as software having a
search function.
Progressive Scan: It displays all the horizontal lines of
a picture at one time, as a signal frame. This system can
convert the interlaced video from DVD into progressive
format for connection to a progressive display. It dramatically increases the vertical resolution.
Region code: A system for allowing discs to be played
back only in the region designated beforehand. This unit
will only play discs that have compatible region codes.
You can find the region code of your unit by looking on
the product label. Some discs are compatible with more
than one region (or ALL regions).
S-Video: Produces a clear picture by sending separate
signals for the luminance and the color.You can use SVideo only if your TV has S- video In jack.
Surround: A system for creating realistic threedimensional sound fields full of realism by arranging multiple
speakers around the listener.
Title: The longest section of a picture or music feature
on DVD, music, etc., in video software, or the entire
album in audio software. Each title is assigned a title
number enabling you to locate the title you want.
VIDEO OUT jack: Jack on the back of the DVD System that sends video to a TV.
JPEG: A very common digital still picture format. A stillpicture data compression system proposed by the Joint
Photographic Expert Group, which features small
decrease in image quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
MP3: A file format with a sound data compression system. “MP3” is the abbreviation of Motion Picture
Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. By using
MP3 format. one CD-R or CD-RW can contain about
10 times as much data volume as a regular CD can.
