Introduction
Thank you for choosing the Harman
Kardon DVD 5. The DVD 5 is a multipurpose
five-disc player, capable of playing both DVD
discs and conventional CD audio discs with the

3 INTRODUCTION
Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your DVD 5 has been designed for use with
120-volt AC current. Connection to a line voltage other than that for which it is intended can
create a safety and fire hazard and may damage the unit.
■ Avoid installation in extremely hot or cold
locations, or an area that is exposed to
direct sunlight or heating equipment.
If you have any questions about the voltage
requirements for your specific model, or about
the line voltage in your area, contact your selling dealer before plugging the unit into a wall
outlet.
Cleaning
When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean,
soft, dry cloth. If necessary, wipe it with a soft
cloth dampened with mild soapy water, then a
fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe immediately
with a dry cloth. NEVER use benzene, aerosol
cleaners, thinner, alcohol or any volatile cleaning agent. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they
may damage the finish of metal parts. Avoid
spraying insecticide near the unit.
Do Not Use Extension Cords
We do not recommend that extension cords be
used with this product. As with all electrical
devices, do not run power cords under rugs or
carpets or place heavy objects on them.
Damaged power cords should be replaced
immediately by an authorized service depot
with cords meeting factory specifications.
Handle the AC Power Cord Gently
When disconnecting the power cord from an
AC outlet, always pull the plug, never pull the
cord. If you do not intend to use the unit for
any considerable length of time, disconnect the
plug from the AC outlet.
Do Not Open the Cabinet
There are no user-serviceable components
inside this product. Opening the cabinet may
present a shock hazard, and any modification
to the product will void your guarantee. If water
or any metal object such as a paper clip, wire
or a staple accidentally falls inside the unit, disconnect it from the AC power source immediately, and consult an authorized service station.
Installation Location
■ To assure proper operation, and to avoid the
potential for safety hazards, place the unit
on a firm and level surface. When placing
the unit on a shelf, be certain that the shelf
and any mounting hardware can support the
weight of the product.
■ Make certain that proper space is provided
both above and below the unit for ventilation. If this product will be installed in a cabinet or other enclosed area, make certain
that there is sufficient air movement within
the cabinet.
■ Do not place the unit directly on a carpeted
surface.
■ Avoid moist or humid locations.
4 SAFETY INFORMATION
■ Do not obstruct the ventilation slots on the
top of the unit, or place objects directly over
them.
Unpacking
The carton and shipping materials used to protect your new receiver during shipment were
specially designed to cushion it from shock and
vibration. We suggest that you save the carton
and packing materials for use in shipping if you
move, or should the unit ever need repair.
To minimize the size of the carton in storage,
you may wish to flatten it. This is done by carefully slitting the tape seams on the bottom, and
collapsing the carton down to a more twodimensional appearance. Other cardboard
inserts may be stored in the same manner.
Packing materials that cannot be collapsed
should be saved along with the carton in a
plastic bag.
If you do not wish to save the packaging materials, please note that the carton and other sections of the shipping protection are recyclable.
Please respect the environment and discard
those materials at a local recycling center.
Moving the Unit
Before moving the unit, be certain to disconnect any interconnection cords with other components, and make certain that you disconnect
the unit from the AC outlet.
IMPORTANT NOTE: To avoid damage to the
DVD 5, which may not be covered by the warranty, be certain that all discs are removed from
the unit before it is moved. Once the DVD 5 is
installed, discs may be left in the unit when it is
turned off, but the unit should NEVER be
moved with discs left in any of the positions of
the disc tray.

Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept
interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
NOTE: Changes or modifications may cause
this unit to fail to comply with Part 15 of the
FCC Rules and may void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
CAUTION: The DVD 5 uses a laser system. To
prevent direct exposure to the laser beam, do
not open the cabinet enclosure or defeat any of
the safety mechanisms provided for your protection. DO NOT STARE INTO THE LASER BEAM.
To ensure proper use of this product, please
read this Owner’s Manual carefully and retain it
for future use. Should the unit require maintenance or repair, please contact your local
Harman Kardon Service Station. Refer servicing
to qualified personnel only.
DVD Compatibility & Terminology
The DVD 5 is more than a DVD player; it will
play the following disc formats:
■ Both 5-inch (12cm) and 3-inch (8cm) discs
■ CD audio discs
■ DTS audio discs
■ CD-RW audio discs
■ DVD movie discs
However, it will NOT play the following:
■ DVD discs with a Region Code other than
the one the player is set for.
■ DVD discs with PAL format video
■ DVD-ROM data discs
■ DVD-RAM discs
■ VCD discs
■ CD-R discs
■ CD-I discs
■ CD-G discs
■ SVCD discs
■ Photo CD discs
■ MP3 Audio Discs
NOTE: Due to differences in the format of
certain discs, it is possible that some discs may
include a mix of features that are not compatible with the DVD 5. Similarly, although the
DVD 5 is capable of a wide range of features,
not all discs include every capability of the DVD
system. For example, although the DVD 5 is
compatible with multi-angle discs, that feature
is only possible when the disc is specially
encoded for multiple-angle play. In addition, the
DVD 5 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.
■ Playback of DTS audio discs requires connection to a processor or receiver with a DTS
decoder.
■ Playback capability for CD-RW discs may
vary due to variations in the quality of the
CD-RW disc and the recorder used to create
the disc.
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 5.
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, making it almost
square. 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 5 to play back in either
format, depending on the features recorded on
a disc.
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. Press the Menu button
to see a listing of the chapters on a disc.
Component 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 a separate luminance
channel and two color difference signals. With a
component video connection you will see
greater picture resolution and eliminate many
picture imperfections such as the moiré patterns often seen on checked patterned cloths.
However, in order to benefit from component
video you must have a video display with
Y/Pr/Pb component video inputs. Do not
connect the component video outputs of the
DVD 5 to the standard composite or S-Video
inputs of a TV or recorder.
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-angle
scenes.
Reading: This is a message that you will see
when you first press the Play button. 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 5 works differently from what you are
used to on CD or 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 5, however, you have two options when
playing DVD discs. Pressing Stop once will stop
the 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.
Title: For a DVD, a title is defined as an entire
movie or program. There may have 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. Press the Title
button to see a listing of the titles on a disc.
When a disc has only one title, pressing the title
button may show a list of the chapters.

Installation and Connections
Installation
Connections will vary, depending on the type of
audio and video components used with your
DVD 5. However, regardless of the complexity
of your system, the installation guidelines on
pages 11–14 should always be followed to
ensure a safe installation and reliable operation
of the product.
Important Note: To prevent possible damage
to your speakers or other components in your
home entertainment system, we strongly recommend that ALL system components, including the DVD 5, be turned off and unplugged
from their AC power source when any connections are made or a new component is
installed.
Placement of the DVD 5
Since the laser transport mechanism and
carousel tray in the DVD 5 are precision instruments that are designed and manufactured to
precise tolerances, they are subject to interference from vibration. To minimize the possibility
of skipping during playback, it is recommended
that the unit be placed on a level, solid,
vibration-free surface.
Installation Options
The diagrams on pages 12–14 describe the
three basic ways to connect the DVD 5 to your
system components.
When installing the DVD 5 in a cabinet or tight
space, always make certain that there is enough
room in front of the unit for the disc tray to
open fully, and that there is enough space
above the unit so that discs may easily be
inserted into the spaces in the tray.
■ Option #2: Use this setup if the video connections will go directly to a television set or
video projector, but the audio connections
will be made to an A/V Receiver or surround
processor.
As the disc drawer extends out about six inches
from the front of the unit when it is open, you
should also make certain that there is sufficient
clearance in front of the unit to accommodate
the disc drawer without it bumping into other
objects or getting in the way of anyone walking
in front of the unit.
■ Option #1: Use this setup if all audio and
video connections from the DVD 5 will go
directly to a television set or video projector
without the use of an A/V receiver or
surround processor.
■ Option #3: Use this setup if all audio and
video connections will be made through an
A/V receiver or a surround processor.
In addition to the safety considerations outlined
on page 4, it is also recommended that the
DVD 5 not be placed in a location that is subject to direct sunlight or extreme heat or cold,
as these conditions may damage the discs used
in the player, or the player itself. Note that
audio amplifiers or high-power receivers, as
well as certain other electronic products, can
generate significant heat. For that reason, do
not place the DVD 5 directly on top of an
amplifier, receiver, or other heat source.
Always allow at least one inch of free space on
all sides of the DVD 5 as well as around other
electronic products to allow for proper
ventilation.
11 INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
Installation and Connections
OPTION 1:
Direct Connections to a Television or
Video Projector
This is the simplest installation, as it does not
require anything other than a television set.
However, note that in this type of system you
will not be able to enjoy the benefits of Dolby
Digital or DTS discrete playback, as that
requires the digital audio processing found in
A/V receivers or surround processors. Follow as
many of these steps as needed, based on the
capabilities of your television:
Connect the left and right Analog Audio
Outputs £ on the DVD 5 to the audio
inputs on your television. B Connect the
Composite Video Output ¢ on the DVD 5
to a video input on your television. Note that
composite video connections typically have a
yellow center ring for easy identification.
A
Installation Notes and Hints
■ If your television has both standard composite video and S-Video inputs, you only need
to use one of the two connections. Where
possible, we recommend using the S-Video
connection due to the higher picture quality.
■ Do not connect any of the video outputs of
the DVD 5 through a VCR. Due to the use of
Macrovision encoding on most DVD discs,
connections through the circuitry of a VCR
will distort the picture so that it will become
unwatchable.
■ Note that the volume level for DVD playback
may different from the level for TV broadcasts. This is normal and does not indicate a
problem with the DVD 5 or your TV set.
Simply use the volume control on the TV set
to set the desired level.
If your television or projector is equipped
with component video inputs, connect the three
Component Video Outputs § on the DVD
5 to the matching component video inputs on
your video display.
■ Depending on the product and brand, a
number of different descriptions are used to
label component video connections. You may
see them as Y/Pr/Pb, Y/Cr/Cb or Y/R-Y/B-Y.
For the purpose of connecting a DVD player,
all of these labels are normally identical. The
best guide is to connect the component
video connections using the green/red/blue
color coding of the inner rings of the connection jacks.
■ When making connections to a high definition (HDTV) or “digital ready” set, do not
connect the component video outputs of the
DVD 5 to inputs labeled “HD Component
Inputs” unless you have checked with the
set’s owner’s manual to ensure that the HD
input is also compatible with standard scan
(NTSC) video.

OPTION 2:
Direct Connections to a Television or
Video Projector with Audio Connections
to an A/V Receiver or Surround Processor
To hear the benefits of discrete, multichannel
digital audio, you will need to use an external
Dolby Digital/DTS-capable A/V receiver or
surround processor. In this installation, you
maintain a direct video connection to your
television, but use the audio processing from
another device.
Note that step A is not used, as it is for
analog audio connections only. This installation
starts with step B
B Connect the Composite Video Output
¢ on the DVD 5 to a video input on your television. Note that composite video connections
typically have a yellow center ring for easy
identification.
C If your television or projector is equipped
with component video inputs, connect the three
Component Video Outputs § on the DVD
5 to the matching component video inputs on
your video display.
Installation Notes and Hints
■ Only one type of audio connection is
required, either digital or analog. If possible,
a digital connection is preferred, as that will
enable you to listen to DVD soundtracks
with the clarity, definition and channel separation made possible by Dolby Digital and
DTS. Follow Step F for digital audio connections. However, if you do not yet have a
receiver capable of digital audio processing,
you will still benefit from an analog connection so that the receiver may create a multichannel soundfield using Dolby Pro Logic or
other matrix decoding. Follow Step G for
instructions on analog audio connections.
■ If your television has both standard composite video and S-Video inputs, you only need
to use one of the two connections. Where

OPTION 3:
Audio and Video Connections through an
A/V Receiver or Surround Processor only
If your home entertainment system has other
audio/video input sources in addition to the
DVD 5, such as a VCR, cable set-top box or
satellite receiver, LD player, personal video
recorder or HDTV tuner, the most efficient way
to manage the various components is to make
all audio/video connections through an A/V
receiver or surround processor. This simplifies
the selection of an input source, and allows
many different components to be connected to
the same video display and speakers.
Note that steps A / B / C and D are not
used. This installation starts with step E
E Connect the AC power cord to an AC
outlet.
F Connect either the Optical Digital
Output ¡ or the Coaxial Digital Output

Notes on Batteries for the DVD 5 Remote
■ The batteries normally last for about one
year although this depends on how often,
and for what operations, the remote control
is used.
NOTE: When replacing batteries, it always a
good idea to replace both at the same time.
When the remote will not be used for an
extended period of time, it is also a good idea
to remove the batteries to avoid the possibility
of damage due to corrosion. Batteries contain
chemical substances and we recommend that
you dispose of them properly and in compliance
with any local regulations.
■ Should any electrolyte leak from the batteries inside the remote control unit, wipe it
away but avoid any contact. If any electrolyte should come into contact with your
skin, wash it off thoroughly with water.
■ If the backlight does not illuminate, or if the
remote control unit fails to work even when
it is operated near the player, replace the
batteries. When replacing the batteries, do
not mix old and new batteries; always
change both cells at the same time.
■ Always dispose of used batteries in an environmentally safe manner and in compliance
with any local regulations.
■ Do not use rechargeable (Ni-Cd) batteries
and do not attempt to recharge, short-circuit
or disassemble the batteries.
Before using the DVD 5 for the first time, make
certain that the unit is properly connected to
any audio/video components it will be used
with, as described on the previous pages. When
the installation is done, make certain that the
batteries are properly installed in the remote
and that the unit is plugged into an AC power
source.
The first step in checking or changing the system defaults is to access the Setup Menu. First,

Ratings Selection and Password Control
The DVD 5 enables you to control the discs that
are viewed by setting a ratings level. When a
disc that’s ready to play has a rating level
greater than the default, it will not play. To further protect against unauthorized viewing of
restricted discs, the ratings-level option may be
locked so that only authorized persons (such as
a parent) may change the rating level after a
password is entered.
To change the range of ratings that may be
viewed without a password, press the ⁄ / ¤
Navigation Buttons e until the desired

Aspect Ratio
The aspect ratio of a television picture is the
relationship between its width and height, and
it defines the shape of the picture. Television
sets have traditionally had an aspect ratio of
4 x 3, which is to say that they are almost
square, with slightly more width than height.
Almost all television programming is presented
in the 4 x 3 aspect ratio so that the pictures fit
within the confines of the TV screen.
Movies, on the other hand, have a variety of
what are known as “wide aspect ratio” formats
that are significantly wider in relation to their
height than traditional television pictures.
Indeed, the development of wide-screen movies
was something that was popularized in the
1950’s in response to the success of television;
movie producers wanted to provide a wider
vista than afforded by TVs.
However, since many movies are produced for a
wider screen than the TV set they are played
on, there is a problem that is like fitting a
square peg in a round hole. In many instances
this is taken care of by the disc’s producers,
who reformat the image to fit within a standard
4 x 3 TV screen. Discs such as this require no
special setting. The only downside to this is that
when wide-screen movies are converted to
4 x 3, some of the information at the sides of a
scene may be cut off due to the difference in
picture shape. This is also called a “pan and
scan” presentation, as a 4 x 3 viewing area is
moved across the wider cinema image.
Other discs are produced in what is called a
“letterbox wide-screen” format. In this case the
entire wide image is fit inside the 4 x 3 screen
shape from side to side. This means that you
see the entire picture as the movie’s director
intended, but the height of the picture is
reduced to accommodate the added width. The
blank areas that appear at the top and bottom
of the screen make the image in the center
appear as if you are looking into a mail slot,
giving this sort of presentation the nickname of
“letterbox.”
The DVD format accommodates both of these
formats, though it is up to the producer of the
disc to select which way to convert the movie
to video. Sometimes you will have a choice of
only one of the two formats, while some discs
offer a full screen, with the pan and scan version on one side of a disc and the widescreen,
but letterbox version, on the other side.
The DVD 5 will play either type of disc, and you
may select a default that tells which way to
present the image when there is a choice.
To select an aspect ratio default, you must be
viewing the Setup Menu (Figure 1), which is
available by pressing the Menu Button `
while the unit is in the Stop mode. At the Setup
Menu, press the ¤ Navigation Button e
until the Aspect Ratio option is highlighted.
Next, press the Enter Button d. Select
one of the three choices in the options box
(Figure 13) using the ⁄ / ¤ Navigation
Buttons e.
Depending on the type of television set you
have, choose one of these three options:
■ 4 x 3 Letterbox: Choose this setting if you
have a standard 4 x 3 television set and prefer to see movies in their original aspect
ratio. You will see the entire movie but,
when it is presented in a letterbox fashion,
there will be black bars at the top and
bottom of the screen. Movies or other programs recorded in a 4 x 3 format will appear
normal.
■ 4 x 3 Pan Scan: Choose this setting if you
have a standard 4 x 3 television set and
always want the image to fill the entire
screen. When a wide screen movie is shown,
you may not see parts of the picture at one
side of the screen or the other. Note, however, that even when you select this option,
playing a wide-screen-only movie will result
in black letterbox bars at the top and bottom of the screen. This is due to the way
the disc was produced, and it cannot be
changed.
■ 16 x 9 Wide-screen: Choose this setting only
if you have a wide-screen television set
(16 x 9 aspect ratio). With this setting, the
DVD 5 will adjust the output for wide-screen
movies so that they fill the entire screen in
the proper aspect ratio. Note, however, that
in this setting a disc recorded in the 4 x 3
aspect ratio will appear in the wide-screen
as a boxed image in the center, with black
columns on the left and right side of the
screen.
NOTE: If the wide-screen option is chosen
and a wide-screen movie is played on a conventional 4 x 3 aspect ratio set, the image will
be distorted due to vertical compression.
When you have made your selection using the
⁄ / ¤ Navigation Buttons e to highlight
the desired option, press the Enter Button
d and note that the circle next to your choice
will fill in. The menu system will then automatically return to the status listing.
If you have no other changes to make after setting this default, press the Menu Button `

Dynamic Range Setting
With the DVD format you have the opportunity
to hear a program’s soundtrack in the most
accurate and realistic presentation possible,
thanks to the use of digital audio technology.
However, in certain instances you may wish to
slightly compress the dynamic range of the
audio output (the difference between the loudest sounds and the quietest ones) so that you
may listen to a movie at a lower volume without losing dialog intelligibility.
If you have no other changes to make after setting this default, press the Menu Button `
to remove the Setup Menu from the screen, or
press the Play Button g/@ to begin or
resume playback.
In most cases it is desirable to leave the
Dynamic Range setting at “OFF” so that no
compression is applied to the audio, but if you
wish to change to a compressed setting, follow
these steps.
Digital Audio Out
DVD players accommodate a variety of audio
formats, including Dolby Digital, DTS and the
PCM audio format used by conventional CD
discs and some DVD playback. Depending on
the type of equipment your DVD 5 is connected
to, you need to set a default for the type of
audio outputs accommodated. Although the
DVD 5 will play all of these disc types, this setting creates a default that tells which way to
present the soundtracks when there is a choice.
First, you must be viewing the Setup Menu
(Figure 1), which is available by pressing the
Menu Button ` while the unit is in the
Stop mode. At the Setup Menu, press the ¤
Navigation Button e until the Dynamic
Range option is highlighted. Next, press the
Enter Button d and select one of the two
choices in the options box using the ⁄ / ¤
Navigation Buttons e (Figure 14). The
choices are as follows:
■ Off: Select this option to turn off the
Dynamic Range compression and have the
soundtrack presented exactly as it was
authored.
■ On: Select this option to turn on the
Dynamic Range compression circuitry so
that the dialog will remain clear even at low
volume levels.
Note that the performance of the Dynamic
Range function is dependent on the audio
format of the disc being played, and whether
or not the disc’s soundtrack is capable of this
feature.
To select a Digital Audio Output default, you
must be viewing the Setup Menu (Figure 1),
which is available by pressing the Menu
Button ` while the unit is in the Stop mode.
At the Setup Menu, press the ¤ Navigation
Button e until the Digital Audio Out option
is highlighted. Next, press the Enter Button
d. Select one of the three choices in the
options box (Figure 15) using the ⁄ / ¤
Navigation Buttons e. The choices are
as follows:
■ PCM: Choose this setting if you are using
only the left/right Analog Audio Outputs
£, or if the Digital Audio Outputs
¡/™ are connected to a processor that is
capable of playing conventional PCM audio
for CDs.
■ Dolby Digital: Choose this setting if the
DVD 5 is connected to an A/V receiver or
surround processor that is capable of decoding Dolby Digital.
Figure 14
When you have made your selection using the
Navigation Buttons e to highlight
the desired option, press the Enter Button

NOTE: If you select the DTS option, your
receiver or processor MUST be capable of
decoding DTS audio. If the DTS option is chosen
and the unit is connected to a product that
cannot support DTS, no audio will be heard
when a DTS disc is played.
Remember, regardless of the option chosen, you
may still have to adjust the settings on your
audio equipment to match the output of the
DVD 5. In addition, the choice of which audio
formats are available is limited by the type of
material recorded on the disc when it was
authored.

K will remain steadily lit.
■ In Fast Search x16, both ‹‹ and ››
Playback Mode Indicators K will flash.
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 CDs.
For CD playback, there are three fast-play
speeds. Each press of the of the Search
Forward/Reverse Buttons 8/h/y will
cycle to the next speed in the following order:
■ In Fast Search x2, the ‹‹ and ›› Playback

When playing a DVD disc, you may move forward or backward through the program being
played in one of four speeds by pressing the
Slow-Play Buttons w on the remote. Each
press of the buttons will move to the next
speed in the following order:
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 discs.
■ When a camera icon appears on the screen,
this is your indication that there is multipleangle information on the disc being played.
To change the angle, press the Angle

Note: Playback of discs with 96kHz/24-bit
audio requires the use of circuitry normally used
for other features. Accordingly, Slow Play,
Forward/Reverse Search, Step Advance and
Pause features are not available with these
discs.
DVD Playback
Using a DVD’s Menu
One of the unique features of the DVD system
is that it offers a producer the opportunity to
include a wide range of features on a disc,
including multiple-language tracks; subtitles in
a variety of languages; special information such
as movie trailers and cast information; as well
as other custom-tailored information. In addition, producers may divide a movie or program
into chapters that allow for quick access to
specific parts of the program. These chapters
may be accompanied by thumbnail pictures
of a scene from the specific chapter to help
you select the desired spot on the disc.
When a disc is playing, press the Menu
Button ` to pause the playback and display
the disc’s menu. As there are no hard rules
about style and contents of DVD menus, the
way they appear on the screen and the information they contain will vary from one disc to
another. However, the following general rules
apply to most menus:
■ The first menu that appears is the Main
Menu, and you may move through the
options with the ⁄ / ¤/‹ / › Navigation
Buttons e, as the disc’s programming
allows. The option selected will typically be
highlighted in a certain color or inside an
outline box.
IMPORTANT NOTES ON DVD PLAYBACK
The DVD 5 is capable of all the features and
options covered by the DVD standards.
However, it is up to the producer of a DVD disc
to decide which of those features and functions
are available on any given disc. For that reason,
not all discs will function identically, and some
discs will not have many of the features of the
DVD system. For example, most current DVD
discs do not take advantage of the multipleangle feature. When you press a button and the
player displays the “Feature Prohibited” icon
“”, this is an indication that the disc has not
been programmed for that feature.
In addition, it is common for the producers of
DVD discs to block the use of certain functions
during only some parts of a disc. For example,
many discs prohibit the use of fast-play buttons
or prohibit access to the Chapter Menu display
during the playback of copyright notices, studio
logos, movie credits or trailers. The appearance
of the “Feature Prohibited” icon “”, or the
inability of certain features to operate when the
disc itself has prohibited them, does not indicate a problem with the DVD 5, as these features are outside of the unit’s control.
■ To select a highlighted option, which may
either play a portion of the disc or move to a
sub-menu, press the Enter Button d or
Play Button g/@.
■ On some discs, when you select the DVD
menu during the playback of a movie, the
disc will return to the point in the program
where the menu was selected by offering a
“Play Movie” option. Press the Enter
Button d or Play Button g/@ to
resume play. However, not all discs offer this
feature, and selecting the menu while playing a movie may mean that you will either
have to go back to the beginning of the program or the start of a chapter. This feature is
out of the control of the DVD 5, as it is set
by the disc’s internal programming.

subtitles. When the Subtitle On/Off Button
z is pressed on a disc with no subtitles, the
Prohibit icon “” will appear on screen.
Changing Camera Angles
A special feature of the DVD format is its capability of showing more than one view, or camera angle, of the same scene. This feature
enables you to become the director, selecting
the view of a scene that you wish. Note, however, that this feature does not appear on many
discs and, when it does appear, it will typically
be for only certain scenes and not for the entire
disc’s program. If you attempt to use the multiple-angle feature on a disc that is not programmed for it, you may see the Prohibited
Feature icon “” on the screen. This is not a
fault of the player, but it simply indicates that
the feature is not available on the disc being
played.
To see if a disc contains multiple angles, check
the disc’s cover or jacket. When a disc does
contain scenes with multiple angles, the producers will usually include some sort of special
on-screen icon to alert you to the availability of
different angles of view. When you see such an
icon, the angle may be changed by the following steps:
1. Press the Mode button c.
2. Press the ‹ / › Navigation Buttons e

appears on the screen.
