Connecting a Digital amplifier or External D/A
converter
Ferrite clamp
There are two power cables in the accessory carton. Once
you have selected the power cable suitable for your market,
you can enhance the performance of your Cyrus product
by fitting the supplied filter. This device is simple to fit and
helps to remove undesirable ‘noise’ present in all domestic
mains supplies.
The CD Xt Signature provides a digital output to connect
to a digital amplifier or D/A converter. Using a digital
interconnect, connect the DIGITAL OPTICAL b or DIGITAL
COAXIAL c output to the digital input of an amplifier or D/A
converter.
The DIGITAL COAXIAL connection is recommended where
this connection is available.
NOTE: The digital output of the CD Xt Signature is only
compatible with digital inputs. It is not suitable for connection
to an analogue amplifier.
20mm
MC-BUS System Connection (Optional)
By using the MC-BUS connection on your CD Xt Signature, a
highly functional integrated system with full remote control
may be set up. This feature is usable if you own a Cyrus
amplifier. Refer to the relevant product handbook for MCBUS wiring instructions.
The hinged filter simply folds around the cable and will
lock together once you firmly close the shaped channels
around the cable. You should fit the filter at the end of the
cable as shown. Allow a 20mm length of wire between
the plug moulding and the filter. This will ensure optimum
performance and allow good cable flexibility.
Connecting to the AC Mains Supply
Connect the socket on the AC Power cable to the AC Power
inlet d on the rear panel of the CD Xt Signature. Now
connect the cable to a suitable AC power point.
There is no mains power switch on the CD Xt Signature. To
switch off the mains supply to the CD Xt Signature remove
the plug from the wall outlet. For this reason, ensure that
the plug is easily accessible when installing the unit.

Learning TV and Satellite commands
In addition to controlling Cyrus components, the remote
control can learn the commands from two other remote
control handsets. These will normally be a TV and a Satellite
or terrestrial TV set-top box, programmed to the TV and
SAT buttons, but could also be other audio components
including a Cyrus tuner or DVD player etc.
All keys may be programmed with the exception of the
groups marked CONTROL and SOURCE and the SETUP key.

Preparation for learning:
Check the following points before attempting to learn any
commands • Check that both remote controls have fresh batteries.

Subdued light is better, away from bright natural or
indoor lighting.
• Check that you have enough time to spare to complete
the learning process for all the keys you want to use.
2. Press the TV or
SAT key to select
the mode that you
want to program.

Checking programmed commands:
Sending TV or SAT commands
• Select the mode that you just programmed and check
that the commands were learned successfully.
NOTE: The TV or SAT mode key should flash red when
sending a command. If the mode key is not flashing, then
the command has not learned correctly.
• Make a note of any commands that have not programmed
correctly and repeat the learning process to add these
in.
NOTE: When you start the learning process it does not erase
any programmed keys so you can re-program individual keys
if required.
Once you have programmed all the keys with the commands
you want, you can use the remote control to send commands
to your TV or Satellite receiver etc.
• Press the TV or SAT key to select the mode you want.
• Press the command key.
The mode key will flash red when sending a programmed
command.
Problems with learning:
If none of the commands have learned correctly, try restarting the learning process again. Test a few keys first
to ensure that your handset is compatible for learning. If
the test works then continue to program the rest of the
commands you need.
If you still have problems, check carefully that the mode
light is flashing correctly as you send a command to learn.
If not, it may be that the batteries need replacement in the
reference handset or that the spacing between the handsets
is not ideal. Try adjusting the spacing between the handsets
and repeating the learning process.
If you continue to have problems, it may be that your
handset is incompatible with the learning process. This
could happen with an older design of handset or one that
has an unusual code-set.
