Other disc formats may not play correctly in this player.

DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs (Audio CDs and Video CD/Super VCDs) recorded using a DVD recorder,

CD recorder or personal computer may not play in the DV29. This may be caused by a number of possibilities, such as the type of disc used and the type of recording.

CD-R/RW compatibility

n

This unit will play CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in CD Audio or Video CD/Super VCD format, or as a CD-ROM containing MP3/WMA audio files, or as a ‘Kodak’ Picture CD. However, any other content may cause the disc not to play, or create noise/distortion in the output. This unit cannot record CD-R or CD-RW discs.

n

Unfinalized CD-R/RW discs recorded as CD Audio cannot be played.

DVD-R/RW compatibility

This unit will play DVD-R/RW discs that are recorded using the DVD Video format. n

This unit cannot record DVD-R/RW discs. n

Unfinalized DVD-R/RW discs cannot be played in this player.

Compressed audio compatibility

The DV29 will play CD-ROM discs containing files saved in the MPEG1 Audio Layer 3 (MP3) and Windows

Media file (WMA) formats, with sampling rates of 44.1 or 48kHz. Incompatible files will not play correctly, potentially causing noise or distortion on the audio outputs. n

Fixed bitrate files are recommended. Variable bitrate (VBR) files are playable, but the playing time may not be shown correctly. n

The CD-ROM used to compile your MP3/WMA files must be ISO 9660 Level 2 compliant. CD physical format: Mode1, or Mode2 XA Form 1. n

This player plays only tracks that are named with the file extensions ‘.mp3’, ‘.MP3’, ‘.wma’ or

‘.WMA’. n

This player is compatible with multi-session discs, but plays only sessions that are closed.

n

Use CD-R or CD-RW media for recording your MP3/WMA files.

n

There are many different recording bit rates available to encode your MP3/WMA files. See page 22 for a list of bit rates that are compatible with this player. Note that MP3 audio encoded at 128 Kbps or higher should sound close to regular CD Audio quality. This player will play lower bitrate MP3 or WMA tracks, but be aware that the sound quality becomes noticeably worse at lower bitrates.

PC created disc compatibility

n

If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a ‘compatible format’ as listed above, there will be cases in which the disc may not be playable in this machine due to the setting of the application software used to create the disc. In these particular instances, check with the software publisher for more detailed information. n

Check the DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW software disc boxes for additional compatibility information.

HDMI digital interface

The HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) interconnect provides high-quality digital audio and video, all through a single user-friendly connector. HDMI is the first consumer-electronics interface to support uncompressed standard, enhanced, or high-definition video together with stereo or multichannel surround-sound audio, all using one interface.

Connection to a HDMI-equipped AV receiver or audio-visual device for high-quality audio and video is easy, and communication between the video source and (DTV) players, set-top boxes, and other audiovisual devices occurs automatically.

For further information on HDMI, please see page 9.

Positioning the unit

Place the DV29 on a level, fi rm surface and ensure that there is adequate ventilation for the unit.

Connecting the video output

To view the pictures from the DVD player you need to connect one of its video outputs to your display device (TV, monitor, projector, etc.).

The DV29 has six video output options: n

Component video n

RGB n

S-video n n n

Composite video

Progressive scan component 525P (480P) and 625P (576P) video

HDMI digital video

You only need to use one type of video from the list; choose a type that your display device supports. If your display device does not support any of the above connection types then you will be unable to use it with the DV29; in this case, please contact your dealer for futher assistance.

Note that you may connect equipment such as AV receivers in the signal path between the DVD player and the display device, so long that the connected equipment also supports the type of video signal you intend to use. For instructions on how to connect AV equipment, consult the manual for that equipment.

NOTE

: The DVD player supports either component video or RGB video at any one time, but not both.

This is specifi ed in the set-up menu (see page 12). If you use either of these outputs with an incorrect menu setting, no damage will occur but the picture will be coloured in a strange way. Similar effects result from cross-connection of the three signals.

If you use component video outputs, you must ensure that the SCART socket is not used. Similarly, if the SCART socket is used, disconnect the component video leads.

Composite video

If your display device offers only a composite input (sometimes labelled CVBS or just ‘video’), connect this to the

COMPOSITE

video output of the DVD player using a 75Ω phono cable suitable for video use.

Note that a composite video connection gives the lowest quality output; if your display device supports other video connection types, we advise that those are used instead.

S-Video

The S-Video output (also known as S-VHS or Y/C) is commonly supported by display devices worldwide.

Connect the

S-VIDEO

output of the DVD player to the S-Video input of the display device using an appropriate cable.

Component video

Use three 75Ω phono cables to connect the Component Y, Pb, Pr outputs of the DVD player to the Y, Pb, Pr inputs of the display device. Ensure that the cables are suitable for video use and that they are approximately the same length.

Some component video interfaces are labelled differently to the

DV29; see the table if the component inputs of your display device are not labelled ‘Y, Pb, Pr’.

RGB/SCART output

RGB output is available on both the SCART and Component/RGB sockets and offers picture quality equal to component video.

Use appropriate cables to connect either the SCART connector or RGB phonos to your display device.

Note that if you are using RGB output via phono connectors, you will also need to use the

COMPOSITE

signal as a synchronisation signal.

DV29

E-7

DV29

E-6

If you are using a SCART connection to your TV, and you do not wish to listen to the audio through it, then it is best to mute your TV’s speakers as SCART also carries stereo audio signals; muting the TV will prevent this audio being heard.

Note that the SCART output has a control signal that switches your TV to its SCART input when the DV29 is turned on. It will also signal to wide-screen TVs the correct aspect ratio

(16:9 or 4:3), provided this feature is supported by the TV.

If no picture is visible, ensure that your display device is set to the correct input.

Progressive video

If your television is capable of accepting a progressively scanned (de-interlaced) video signal, you may wish to use the progressive video output from the DV29.

To connect the progressive output of the DV29 to your display device, follow the instructions above for connecting component video. If you are unsure whether your display device can accept progressive video, please refer to its instruction manual or consult your dealer.

If ‘black bars’ are shown at the top and bottom of the screen: you are viewing a ‘widescreen’ formatted fi lm via a 4:3 format display device.

If possible, change your display device to show

16:9 format output.

HDMI digital video

The HDMI connector offers uncompressed digital video transmission between the DV29 and the display device, and provides the highest quality video output.

To use this video connection, you will require a HDMI or HDMI/DVI cable between the DV29 and the display device. See page 9 for further details.

Connecting the digital-audio output

If you have an external surround-sound decoder, receiver or D-A converter that you wish to use with the

DVD player, then you will need to connect it using either a co-axial or optical lead. These digital outputs provide PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS or MPEG multi-channel audio, depending on the source material. It is also possible (via the set-up menu of the DV29) to set the digital output always to put 2-channel PCM

(stereo mix-down) out.

If possible, use the co-axial connection as this offers slightly better performance. Connect the co-axial output of the DVD player to the digital audio co-axial input of the decoder/D-A converter or receiver using a phono cable designed for digital audio interconnection.

Alternatively, connect the optical output of the DVD player to the optical input of the decoder/D-A converter or receiver using a TOSLINK optical lead.

Connecting the analogue-audio output

If you wish to use the high quality D-A converters of the DV29, then you will need to use its analogue audio outputs.

Two pairs of stereo outputs are provided (these are identical), labelled

L

(left) and

R

(right).

Connect one of these pairs to the input of your amplifi er using a suitable pair of interconnect cables. If required, the second set of audio outputs can be used to connect to a second amplifi er set-up for ‘multi-room’ use, or routed to a tape recorder for making recordings.

For 6-channel material, an additional four outputs are provided. Together with one pair of the

2-channel output connections, these should be connected (using suitable interconnect cables) to the ‘multi-channel’ analogue input of your home cinema processor (the multi-channel input may be labelled ‘DVDA’ or ‘SACD’). In this case, the additional 2-channel output pair may be used for some other function, as suggested above (although when playing 6-channel material, only the left and right channels of this material would be heard).

The remote-control input

The

REMOTE IN

input can be used to pass RC5 codes to the DV29 if it is installed in a position (or system) where infrared cannot be used. If this is required, please contact your dealer for further information. The DV29 can accept both modulated (at 36kHz) and unmodulated RC5 signals.

If nothing is audible, ensure that your audio device (TV, amplifi er, etc.) is set to the correct input. Check the connections at both ends and, if necessary, try an alternative cable.

Connecting to a power supply

Mains lead

The appliance is normally supplied with a moulded mains plug already fi tted to the lead. If for any reason the plug needs to be removed, it must be disposed of immediately and securely, as it is a potential shock hazard when inserted into the mains socket.

Check that the plug supplied with the unit fi ts your supply and that your mains supply voltage agrees with the voltage setting (

115V

or

230V

) indicated on the rear panel of the unit.

If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different, or you require a new lead, please consult your

Arcam dealer.

Plugging in

Push the plug (IEC line socket) of the power cable supplied with the unit into the socket (

POWER INLET

) in the back of the unit. Make sure it is pushed in fi rmly.

Put the plug on the other end of the cable into your power supply socket and switch the socket on.

The HDMI interface

If you have a HDMI- or DVI-equipped monitor or display, you can connect it to the DV29 using a HDMI cable. The HDMI connector carries uncompressed digital video, as well as digital audio.

About HDMI

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports both video and audio on a single digital connection for use with DVD players, digital TV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices. HDMI was developed to combine the technologies of High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) and the Digital Visual

Interface (DVI) in one specification, with the addition of transmission of digital audio information; HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted to DVI-compliant displays.

HDMI has the capability to support standard (interlaced), enhanced, or high-definition video together with stereo or multi-channel surround-sound audio. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, one connector (instead of several cables and connectors), and communication between the AV source and AV devices.

Connecting using HDMI

If the HDMI connector is to be used, we recommend first setting the ‘Output Priority’ item on the video menu page to ‘HDMI/DVI’. This will give full ‘plug and play’ functionality. See page 14 for details on how to do this.

Use a HDMI cable to connect the

HDMI

socket on this player to a HDMI socket on a compatible display device or receiver. The arrow on the cable connector body should be face up for correct alignment with the connector on the DV29. If the DV29 has been configured to ‘HDMI priority’, then the DV29 will configure its video output automatically to match the capabilities of the attached HDMI device.

NOTE:

A HDMI connection can be made only with HDMI or DVI-equipped components compatible with both DVI and HDCP. Note that if you choose to connect to a DVI device, you will need an adaptor

(HDMI to DVI) to do so; a DVI/HDCP connection, however, does not support audio signals.

If you require further information on the possibilities for connecting your DV29 to your DVI/HDMI equipped display device, please contact your Arcam dealer.

Troubleshooting

Problems with video

NO VIDEO (BLANK SCREEN)

n

Check that the HDMI cable is connected correctly at both ends. If an HDMI-equipped A/V receiver is in use, try connecting the DV29 directly to the display device, in order to isolate where the fault may lie.

n

Check that the display device is set to display the HDMI input (i.e., has not been set to some other video input, instead).

n

Check that the HDMI connector of the receiver and/or display device is enabled. See the user handbook of the connected device for details on doing this.

n

Using an alternative video display device (e.g., connected via the composite video out), check that the ‘Output Priority’ item on the Video page of the Set-up menu is set to ‘HDMI / DVI’. See page 14 for details on how to do this.

n

Consult the user handbook of the display device to ensure that it can handle the output formats provided by the DV29. The DV29 can provide the following: 720x480P (NTSC progressive scan),

720(1440)x480i (NTSC interlaced), 720x576P (PAL progressive scan) and 720(1440)x576i (PAL interlaced). At least one of these must be supported by the connected device in order for it to work with the DV29.

NO VIDEO (RANDOM NOISE)

Random noise will be displayed if the content-protection algorithm fails to authenticate the attached device. This will occur, for example, if a DVI device that does not support HDCP (such as a computer monitor) is connected to the DV29.

To attempt to isolate this problem, remove all discs from the DV29, the power-off both it and the connected display device. Switch the display device on, then the DV29 – at this point, the idle logo of the

DV29 should be shown on the display device. If this is not the case, please check the items listed above for a blank screen.

If the noise appears when a copy-protected disc (DVD) is played, then it is the authentication that is failing. Please contact your dealer for further information.

Problems with audio

The type of audio provided by the HDMI connector depends on the configuration of the DV29 (see ‘Audio

Setup’ on page 15). Note that pure DVI devices (connections requiring a HDMI to DVI convertor cable) do not support audio via this connection.

If you have a HDMI device and you are experiencing audio problems, try setting the audio output to

Audio item of the Set-up menu to ‘PCM/2 Ch.’; it may be that the display device supports only 2-channel audio.

Confi guring your DVD player

Introduction

This section of the document describes the use of the ‘Set-up’ menu, which is used to confi gure your player for your system and your personal preferences.

Obtaining a picture

To view the Set-up menu for the initial confi guration, we recommend the use of the composite video output to connect to your display device. This is because the high quality video output has several display modes and may be incompatible with your display device in its default confi guration.

Ensure that your display device is switched on and that you have selected the correct video input. You should see the image shown on the right. This is the image that the DVD player gives whenever there is no disc playing.

NOTE:

To protect your screen from damage caused by persistent static images, a ‘screen saver’ facility activates after a few minutes of inactivity.

When this occurs, the image shown on the right will be ‘bounced’ around the screen. To reset the image to the central position, press the

STOP

button on the player or on the remote control.

Using the Set-up menus

To enter the Set-up menu, ensure that no disc is playing. Press

SETUP

on the remote control: a menu will appear on the screen.

The Set-up menu comprises seven pages of options. The top line of each page shows the page title, indicating the nature of the settings controlled by the page. To make a change, fi rst use the

UP

DOWN

controls to highlight the item. Once the item to be changed has been highlighted, press

RIGHT

to open the list of options for the menu item. The current option for the menu item is shown highlighted; the

UP

No pop-up messages, only menus when required.

Certain messages, such as ‘No Disc’ are always shown regardless of how this is set.

DVD menu

Some DVD discs support a number of different languages for the DVD disc menu (the menu present on the DVD itself). This setting allows the preferred language to be specifi ed. For example, if this item is set to ‘French’ then disc menus will be displayed in French, where supported by the disc.

Note that not all discs will have your preferred language available.

The default setting for Subtitle is ‘Off’; alternatively, choose the setting for the language you prefer. Note that not all discs will have your preferred language available as a subtitle.

Force DVI

Even though your display device may be fully HDMI compliant, it is possible that in-line receivers or repeaters may work only in DVI mode. In this case, it is useful to disable HDMI, forcing DVI output instead.

Select

YES

to force the DV29 into DVI mode even when a HDMI device is detected; select

NO

otherwise.

If you are not using the HDMI capabilities of the DV29, then it does not matter which way this item is set.

Remote type

This informs the player which type of remote control you are using, so that the player can take into account the slight differences between the remote types. For ARCAM remote controls, the remote type is always written on the front of the remote control, normally at the bottom of the unit.

A non-ARCAM learning remote control is being used

It is important to choose ‘Other’ if the learning remote in use does not support RC-5 ‘toggle bits’.

Disc Priority

Some DVD discs show different material, or have different behaviour, depending on whether the disc is played on a DVD-video or on a DVD-audio player. The ‘Disc Priority’ option allows you to confi gure the

DV29 to be (primarily) one or other of the player types.

Note that, although this setting may be changed after a disc has been loaded into the DV29, this setting does not take effect unless the disc is re-loaded (or a different disc is played).

Video set-up

If your display device is HDMI-compliant, the DV29 can read the capabilities of the display device directly; the information allows the DV29 to confi gure its output automatically and optimally for the attached device. This is known as ‘plug and play’.

The DV29 can be confi gured for plug and play, or not; this depends on the ‘Output

Priority’ setting, described below. If the DV29 is confi gured for plug and play, and the display device cannot handle some of the options described below, then the options shown will be restricted to just the ones applicable to the attached device.

For example, if the display device can handle PAL signals, but not NTSC, then NTSC will not be shown as an option for the ‘TV System’ menu item.

See page 9 for more information about connecting to HDMI devices.

Output Priority

Allows specifi cation of whether HDMI ‘plug and play’ capabilities should be used.

HDMI/DVI

Analogue

Select this item if you are connecting the DV29 to a HDMI-compliant device, and you are happy for the DV29 to confi gure itself automatically for the device it is attached to.

This is the recommended setting if you are connecting the DV29 to a

HDMI-compliant device.

Select this setting if you are not connecting the DV29 to a HDMI-compliant device.

TV System

This is set at the factory to be appropriate for the type of display device used in your country.

Should you need to change this setting, the options are explained below.

Auto

NTSC

PAL

The video output is taken from that recorded on the disc. When no disc is playing, the logo screen is displayed using the standard of the last disc played.

NTSC is always used as the video standard. Note that PAL discs are converted to

NTSC, but this causes some reduction in the quality of the video output (and may cause the video to become ‘jerky’). This is the best setting to use if your display device can accept only NTSC video (this is generally the case in North America); better results are obtained by using ‘Auto’, but your display device must be able to support PAL.

PAL is always used as the video standard. Note that NTSC discs are converted to

PAL, but this causes some reduction in the quality of the video output (and may cause the video to become ‘jerky’). Better results will be obtained by using ‘Auto’, but your display device must be able to support NTSC.

If the picture is ‘jerky’ or ‘shimmers’, you may be playing a disc that has a format different to the setting of your player (a PAL disc played with NTSC output, for example). If your display device can handle both

PAL and NTSC video, then change the ‘TV system’ setting to ‘Auto’.

Progressive

Allows confi guration of interlaced or de-interlaced (progressive scan) output.

Off

NTSC only

(525)

PAL only

(625)

On

The video output will always be interlaced (standard defi nition video). Use this setting if your display device does not support progressive scan.

The component video output will switch to progressive scan mode whenever the output standard is NTSC (525). This would be whenever an NTSC disc is played, or whenever ‘TV System’ is set to NTSC. The video output will revert to interlaced

(standard defi nition) for PAL (625) modes. Use this setting only if your display device supports NTSC progressive scan.

The component video output will switch to progressive scan mode whenever the output standard is PAL (625). This would be whenever a PAL disc is played, or whenever ‘TV System’ is set to PAL. The video output will revert to interlaced

(standard defi nition) for NTSC (525) modes. Use this setting only if your display device supports PAL progressive scan.

The component- and HDMI-video outputs will put progressive scan video out for both PAL and NTSC discs. Use this setting only if your display device supports progressive scan in both PAL and NTSC formats.

NOTE

: When progressive scan is active, the component- and HDMI-video outputs will be in

Progressive mode; the other video outputs (Composite and S-Video) will be muted.

Since progressive scan must be Component, (not RGB), the ‘Analogue Video’ item will be forced to ‘Component’ if progressive scan is enabled.

TV shape

This needs to be set correctly for the type of display device you have and the type of display you prefer.

Not all displays support progressive scan. If you enable progressive scan accidentally and your display does not support it, you may be unable to view the picture from the DVD player, including the on-screen display required to change the video settings. To revert to interlaced mode without using the on screen menus, press and hold the

STOP

button on the front panel at any time. The video mode will revert to interlaced mode after the button has been held in for about fi ve seconds.

4:3

Letterbox

4:3

Panscan

Use this setting if you have a conventional 4:3 display device, and you prefer to view wide screen movies in letterbox format (with black bars at the top and bottom)

Use this setting if you have a conventional 4:3 display device, and you prefer to view wide screen movies in Pan & Scan format (cropping the sides of the image)

16:9

Use this setting if you have a wide screen (16:9) display device.

Material in 16:9 format is displayed so as to fi ll the screen.

If you have a 4:3 display device and you have set a preference for

PANSCAN

, it does not mean you will always see movies in this format, since Panscan display must be supported by the disc being played.

Analogue Video

This setting controls the type of video given out on the Component and SCART video outputs. It is set at the factory to be appropriate for the type of display device used in your country, so it is best not to change it. If it gets set incorrectly then the picture shown on the display device will have strange colouring.

Component

The video output on the Component video (3 phonos), SCART and HDMI connections is Y, Pb, Pr component video.

RGB SCART

The video output on the Component video (3 phonos), SCART and HDMI connections is RGB. Note that if you are using RGB output via phono connectors, you will also need to use COMPOSITE as a sync. signal.

Note that this setting has no effect on the video provided by the HDMI connector.

Digital Video

This setting controls the type of video given out over the HDMI connection.

YUV

The HDMI connection carries Y, Pb, Pr (YUV) component video.

RGB SCART

The HDMI connection carries RGB video.

Note that this setting has no effect on the analogue video outputs.

NTSC black (Pedestal)

This setting controls the ‘pedestal’ signal or black level when the NTSC video standard is used.

0 IRE

7.5 IRE

This removes the pedestal from NTSC video. This setting should be used in Japan, and also if you are using RGB video, whatever the country.

This is the standard pedestal level that should be used in all countries that use

NTSC video, with the exception of Japan.

Note that this setting has no effect on PAL, progressive scan or HDMI outputs.

Audio set-up

This section allows you to confi gure the analogue, digital and HDMI audio outputs.

In particular, the digital output type needs to be set correctly if you are using an external audio decoder, receiver or D-A converter.

Audio

Two different types of digital signal are supported on the digital audio outputs:

‘Bitstream’ and ‘Stereo PCM’; the HDMI link can, additionally, carry multi-channel uncompressed audio (such as from DVD-audio discs).

Bitstream

The Bitstream setting supports the following audio standards: n

2 channel PCM (on CDs or DVDs) n

Dolby Digital n

MPEG multi channel n

DTS multi channel

Use the Bitstream setting if you have an external decoder that supports Dolby Digital.

Stereo PCM

When the ‘Stereo PCM’ digital output is selected, all audio material played is down-mixed to stereo and output as stereo

PCM. Use this setting if you have an external D-A converter that supports only 2-channel PCM.

Since the digital and analogue outputs are closely related, the analogue audio output refl ects the digital output type selected.

The options available are as follows:

Bitstream +

6 Ch.

Bitstream +

2 Ch.

PCM +

2 Ch.

The digital output is ‘Bitstream’ (as described above); the HDMI and analogue audio will comprise up to six channels of decoded output, depending on the source material, the speaker confi guration (see the ‘Speaker Setup’ section) and the ‘Pro

Logic II’ setting (see below).

Select this option if: either – you are using the multi-channel analogue output to connect to your amplifi er/receiver; or – you are using the HDMI link to carry multi-channel uncompressed audio, such as the output from a DVD-audio disc. (Note that very few HDMI receivers support this mode currently – check the handbook of your HDMI device or consult your dealer for advice.)

The digital audio and HDMI outputs are ‘Bitstream’ (as described above). The analogue audio will comprise a 2-channel stereo down-mix of the source material.

Select this option if you are using the digital audio or HDMI outputs to connect to your receiver and your receiver supports Dolby Digital decoding.

The digital audio and HDMI outputs are ‘Stereo PCM’ (as described above). The analogue audio will comprise a 2-channel stereo down-mix of the source material.

Select this option if: either – you are using stereo analogue output to connect to your amplifi er/ receiver; or – you are using the digital audio or HDMI outputs to connect to your receiver and your receiver supports only 2-channel PCM.

Language

This controls the default audio track, when there is more than one audio track present.

The default setting is ‘English’. Choose the setting you would like as default. Note that the audiolanguage preference setting is not respected by all discs, which may impose their own default choice.

Down-sample

This needs to be set correctly if you are using an external audio decoder, receiver or D-A converter connected to the co-axial or optical digital audio output.

Max 96K

Choose this option if your external audio decoder is able to process digital audio with a sample rate of up to 96kHz, or if you are not using the digital audio outputs. This is the maximum sample rate present on DVD-video discs.

Max 48K

Choose this option if your external audio decoder is unable to process digital audio with a sample rate of up to 96kHz. This is the normal setting for this menu item.

Note that this setting is relevant only to the output from DVD-video discs.

Compression

Allows compression of the audio stream to be turned on or off, where ‘On’ is intended for ‘late night’ listening when large volume changes are not desirable.

Turning compression on increases the volume of the quiet passages and decreases the volume of the louder passages, i.e., the total dynamic range of the audio is reduced. Normally, however, this item is set to “Off”, to disable compression.

This menu option affects both the analogue and the HDMI outputs (although note that the HDMI output is affected only when carrying multi-channel uncompressed audio, not otherwise). The co-axial and optical digital audio outputs are never affected by this menu setting.

Compression is available only on Dolby Digital recordings.

Pro Logic II

Dolby Pro Logic II decoding is designed to produce a 5-channel analogue output from two-channel source material. This item can be changed only if the ‘Audio’ menu item (described above) is set to ‘Bitstream/6 Ch’.

Set this item to one of the following. Due to the different recording methods used for movies and music, it is recommended that the correct decoding mode for your source material is used to obtain the best results.

Off

Pro Logic II decoding should be enabled only if the analogue audio outputs are being used.

If co-axial/optical digital audio or HDMI are in use, set this menu item to

“Off”.

PL

Movie

Music

Matrix

No Pro Logic decoding is performed.

Dolby Pro Logic decoding is performed. Dolby Pro Logic decoding is a legacy mode, and we recommend using one of the Pro Logic II decoding options, instead.

Movie mode should be used with material marked as ‘Dolby Surround’ encoded.

Music mode is for use with any stereo music recording. As the optimum decoding method varies according to the recording, Music mode allows user adjustment of the processing characteristics; information about adjusting the Music mode by using ‘Dimension’, ‘Centre Width’ and ‘Panorama’ controls can be found below.

The Matrix mode is the same as the Music mode except that the directional enhancement logic is turned off. Matrix mode may be used to enhance mono signal by making them seem ‘larger’.

Dimension

(This setting can be adjusted only when Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode is selected.)

‘Dimension’ allows the user gradually to adjust the soundfi eld either towards the front or towards the rear. If a recording is too spacious or strong from the surrounds, it can be adjusted ‘forward’ to get a better balance. Likewise, if a stereo recording is somewhat too ‘narrow’ sounding, it can be adjusted toward the rear to get a more enveloping, immersive result. We recommend ‘Dimension’ is set to 0 for normal use.

�����

�����

With Pro Logic II decoding, dominant centre signals come only from the centre speaker. If no centre speaker is present, the decoder splits the centre signal equally to the left and right speakers to create a

‘phantom’ centre image. The Centre Width control allows variable adjustment of the centre image so it may be heard only from the centre speaker; only from the left/right speakers as a phantom image; or from all three front speakers to varying degrees. We recommend ‘Centre Width’ is set to 3 for normal use.

(This setting can be adjusted only when Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode is selected.)

Speaker set-up

This menu screen allows you to specify the speaker confi guration that is connected either to the analogue ouputs of your DVD player, or to your HDMI receiver when the HDMI link is carrying multi-channel uncompressed audio. (If you are using the coaxial or optical audio outputs, set all speakers to ‘Large’ or ‘Present’.) It is important that this confi guration refl ects accurately the actual situation, otherwise audio quality may be severely compromised.

The speakers are indicated as follows:

Front L/R

Centre

Surround

L/R

Subwoofer

This is the setting for the ‘Front’ speakers (the speakers used for 2channel stereo output).

This is the ‘Centre’ speaker setting.

This is the setting for the ‘Surround’ speakers (normally next-to or behind the user).

This is used to indicate whether a subwoofer is connected.

For each speaker, the player can be confi gured to send either audio with the full frequency range of the source material, or with a reduced frequency range. The reduced frequency range option is used normally when ‘satellite’ speakers are used for the surround channels; these cannot handle low frequency information. Full frequency speakers are commonly called ‘Large’ speakers, with reduced-range speakers given the name ‘Small’. Low frequency information is rerouted from ‘small’ speakers to ‘large’ speakers, or to the subwoofer (depending on the speaker confi guration).

NOTES:

1. Any speaker that is not connected should be identifi ed by selecting ‘Not Present’ for that speaker.

2. Although the DV29 is very fl exible in the speaker confi gurations it can handle, some restrictions have been applied. For example, if no subwoofer is present, then it is not possible to confi gure the Front speakers to be ‘Small’ since there would be nowhere to redirect the low frequency information.

Stereo+Sub

This setting is relevant to 2-channel source material only (such as CDs). It controls whether the low frequency information is redirected to the subwoofer, or not. This item can be changed only if a subwoofer is specifi ed as present in the system.

None

Crossover

Duplicate

No redirection of low-frequency information occurs; all the audio is sent to the

Front speakers.

Low-frequency information is redirected to the subwoofer, with the remaining

(higher-frequency) information sent to the Front speakers.

All the audio is sent to the Front speakers. In addition, the low-frequency information is duplicated to the subwoofer.

Crossover Frequency

This setting defi nes the frequency at which bass redirection begins. Frequencies below this level are redirected from ‘small’ speakers to the Fronts or to the subwoofer; frequencies above this level are not redirected. The redirection frequency is the same for all the speakers in a system.

The optimum crossover frequency depends on the characteristics of your speaker set-up, and is best determined by experimentation. We suggest you start at 100Hz.

No sound from the centre/rear speakers?

Ensure that the following are correct:

n

A multi-channel source is being played;

n

The ‘Audio’ item is set to ‘Bitstream/6 Ch.’;

n

The connection between the DV29 and your audio device is made correctly – if using multichannel analogue output, check that the cables have not been swapped.

The delay set-up menu page allows two different type of delay to be confi gured: those due to speaker positioning and those due to video post-processing.

Speaker positioning

The relative positioning of speakers within a room (particularly a large room) may mean that sound from some speakers arrives at the listener later than sound from others. By altering the delay settings for the different speakers, this difference in arrival time can be reduced or eliminated.

When setting the delay, it should be imagined that the listener is sitting in a circle of the speakers; the delay indicates the distance of the speaker from the listener.

Measurement Units

Your DV29 allows you to choose the measurement units that you feel most comfortable with: metres or feet.

Delays

Delays for the front, centre and surround speakers can be set using the associated sliders. A delay may be necessary for a speaker set if those speakers are further away from the listener than the others – specifying the different speaker distances will cause a slight delay to be added to the output of the closest speakers so that the sound from all the speakers will arrive at the listener at the same time.

Note that these delay sliders affect only the analogue and the HDMI outputs (although the HDMI output is affected only when carrying multi-channel uncompressed audio, not otherwise). The coaxial/optical digital audio outputs are never affected by changes here. If you are using these digital audio connections between the DV29 and your receiver, set all of the delays to zero.

Video post-processing (lip-sync.)

Delay (NTSC/PAL)

Modern displays and video scalers often employ digital video processing that can introduce a signifi cant video delay. The ‘Delay’ menu items allow correction of this effect by delaying the audio soundtrack up to 150 milli seconds. The amount of correction required in a given system is best determined by experimentation.

n

If the interlaced video outputs of the DV29 are in use and the display is converting the signal to progressive scan then we recommend a delay of 50–80ms, depending upon the display.

n

If the progressive video output of the DV29 is in use, the player corrects automatically for its own processing delays and it is unlikely that additional delay will be necessary. Therefore, start by setting these items to 0ms (no delay).

Trim set-up

The relative sensitivity (volume) of different speakers can lead to some speakers sounding disproportionately loud or quiet, relative to others in the system. The trims setting of your DV29 can help to address this inbalance.

This page is relevant only if you are using the analogue audio outputs of the DV29 to connect to your amplifi er/receiver. If this is not the case, set all the trims to be

0 dB.

Test Noise

Setting this item to ‘On’ causes pink noise to be generated from the speaker indicated by the on-screen highlight. The noise is at the volume indicated by the slider for the speaker. Setting this to ‘On’ may be useful in ensuring that the relative volume for each speaker is the same.

Note that this setting is set automatically to ‘Off’ on exit from this menu page.

������

�����������

��������������

�������������

Trims

Trims for all the speakers can be set using the associated sliders. These settings are useful if the speakers have different sensitivities (and so have different volumes for the same input levels). The trims can be set in 1dB steps.

Subwoofer/Stereo+Sub trims

Both the ‘Subwoofer’ and the ‘Stereo+Sub’ trims control the subwoofer trim setting. ‘Subwoofer’ is the trim used when multi-channel material is being played; ‘Stereo+Sub’ is the subwoofer trim used with

2-channel material.

Access set-up

Password

The password setting works in conjunction with the rating setting (the next menu item) to provide a means of limiting content playback by children (parental control).

��������

������

You will see there are four dashes and a padlock symbol. Normally the padlock symbol will be open and this means the parental control is unlocked. Under this condition the rating setting may be freely changed.

To lock the parental control, choose a suitable four digit number. Don’t forget your password as you will need to know it to unlock the player. Highlight ‘Password’ and enter your four digit number using the numerical keys on the handset. When all four digits have been entered, press

OK

on the handset. The player is now locked and you will not be able to change the rating setting.

To unlock the parental control, highlight ‘Password’ and enter your four digit number, followed by

OK

.

Note that a different pass-code can be selected each time that the player is locked.

����������

Rating

The rating setting is used in conjunction with the password to restrict the content of DVD titles that may be played. To change this setting the parental control must be unlocked.

The term ‘Parental level’ refers to a standard defi ned for DVDs. DVD movies may have a parental level between 1 and 8. Note that this only applies to DVD video discs that have the parental level correctly implemented. Some DVD video titles do not respond to parental control settings, and Video CDs have no mechanism for parental control.

Once the rating level has been set, DVD titles with parental level higher than the setting will not play.

Sometimes DVD video titles may be produced that have the parental level set for specifi c scenes, so a disc will play but skip or substitute certain scenes.

�����������

Completing the set-up

Complete the set-up procedure by pressing

SETUP

on the remote control. This saves all the data and closes the set-up menu. You can press

SETUP

at any time while in a menu to quit from it.

To return to the set-up menu at any time, ensure that there is no disc playing and press the

Advanced DVD and VCD features

This section explains the more sophisticated DVD and VCD features, such as special playback modes.

The operations described here are not exactly the same for DVDs and VCDs, but are similar enough to make it appropriate to group them together.

Note that many VCDs have a single track, so some operations involving tracks will not be relevant.

Jumping to a particular point

Press the

SRCH

button on the remote control to open the ‘Search’ menu:

If the disc is playing, then the elapsed and total times on the disc are shown in the top right of the page.

A jump can be performed using different specifi ers: jump to a particular time or to a specifi ed chapter/track on the disc.

������

�����

��������������

Time

Highlight the ‘Time’ fi eld and enter the time in hours, minutes and seconds, then press

OK

. The Search menu is removed from the screen and playback starts from the time specifi ed. Invalid time entries are ignored.

Title/Chapter

(Applies to DVDs only) To jump to a title or chapter, highlight the title/chapter position and enter the number of the title/chapter to jump to, before pressing

OK

.

It is possible to jump to a chapter within a different title to the current one by entering a value into both fi elds. Note that specifying a title without a chapter will jump to the fi rst chapter in the title.

Group/Track

(Applicable to DVD-audio discs only.) To jump to a group or track, highlight the group/track position and enter the number of the group/track to jump to, before pressing

OK

. It is possible to jump to a track within a different group to the current one by entering a value into both fi elds. Note that specifying a group without a track will jump to the fi rst track in the group.

Track

(Applies to VCDs only) To jump to a specifi ed track on a VCD, enter the track number in the ‘Track’ fi eld, then press

OK

. Note that many VCDs have only one track.

��������

�������

Closing the Search menu

When displayed, this menu screen can be closed again by pressing the

SRCH

button (which also has the effect of cancelling the search).

Special playback modes

Playback modes are available that allow repeat, shuffl e and programmed playback.

Repeat

Press the

RPT

button on the remote control to cycle through the repeat options. For DVDs, a chapter or title repeat may be selected (i.e., play continuously the current chapter or the current title). For VCDs, a track or disc repeat is available.

When a chapter/track repeat is selected, the loop symbol on the front panel display is illuminated and the current chapter/track is repeated. If a title/disc repeat is selected, the loop symbol and ‘ALL’ are illuminated and the current title/disc is repeated.

To cancel repeat, press the

RPT

button until ‘Repeat: Off’ is displayed.

Shuffl e

Press the

P MODE

button on the remote control to switch shuffl e play on.

The ‘RAND’ (random play) indicator shows on the display, and the chapters/tracks are played in random order.

To cancel random play, press the

P MODE

button for a second time.

A-B repeat

The DV29 can repeat a specifi c section of a DVD or VCD; this is called an A-B repeat.

To perform an A-B repeat, wait until the disc is at the point where you want the repeat to start, then press

A-B

. The OSD shows a repeat symbol, followed by ‘A–’, and the front panel shows ‘A–’.

Press

A-B

again at the point you want the repeat to end. The repeat symbol, followed by ‘A-B’ is shown on the display device, and the front panel shows ‘A-B’. The selected section is repeated in a loop.

To cancel the A-B repeat, press

A-B

again. An ‘Off’ message is displayed on the OSD.

Programmed playback (DVD-video)

Press

PROG

on the remote control to open the ‘Programme’ menu. Note that playback must be stopped fi rst.

The bottom of the screen shows the number of titles present on the disc, together with the number of chapters in the title selected currently (or the fi rst title if no title has yet been specifi ed). Below this is an information line, giving relevant information for the cursor position.

You can enter a sequence of up to 20 title/chapter combinations for programmed playback. If you enter data that is invalid for the current disc, the fi eld is erased automatically.

A number of aids have been built in to the programme menu to make it easier to use. These are best illustrated by an example. Let’s assume that you want to play chapters 5, 7, 9, 4, 8, 3, and 1 (in that order) of title 1, then all of title 2.

First, highlight the title position for the fi rst programmed item, then press the number

1

on the remote control: ‘1’ is shown in the position. Using the remote control, press

4

to highlight the chapter position. The message at the bottom of the screen changes accordingly, prompting you for the required information. Press

5

on the remote handset.

Since we have a number of chapters all from the same title, it would be a lot of work to have to enter the title number each time. Press

6

on the remote handset.

Notice that the player assumes that the title number remains the same for this entry as for the previous one. Enter the remaining chapter numbers, pressing after each one. (Note that pressing

6

6

at the bottom of a column places the cursor at the top of the next column.)

Next, we want to specify all of title 2. For this, highlight the title position of the next entry (entry 8) and enter the number

2

, indicating title 2. Highlight the chapter position and, without entering any number, press

6

. The player fi lls in the text ‘All’ to indicate that all the chapters in title 2 will be played.

Program (DVD-audio)

The programming of a sequence for a DVD-audio disc is essentially the same as for a DVD-video disc, and the instructions given above should be followed. For DVD-audio discs, the ‘titles with chapters’ combination found on DVD-video discs changes to ‘groups with tracks’.

Programmed playback (VCD)

The bottom of the screen shows the number of tracks present on the disc. Below this is an information line, giving relevant information for the cursor position.

You can enter a sequence of up to 20 tracks for programmed playback. If you enter data that is invalid for the current disc, the fi eld is erased automatically.

To program the player, highlight the fi rst entry (using the cursor pad on the remote control), then press the number of the track you want to play fi rst. To enter a second track, move down, then type the number of the second track to play, etc. To enter a track number greater than 9, press the two digits sequentially (e.g., for track 10, fi rst press

1

, then press

0

).

General

To play the programme you have entered, highlight the ‘Play’ button on the screen and press

OK

. The

‘PROG’ indicator shows in the display and the programmed sequence begins.

If you make a mistake while programming, you can clear a single fi eld by highlighting it and pressing

CLEAR

. To clear all the fi elds at once, highlight the ‘Clear All’ button on the screen and press

OK

.

To stop the programmed sequence and return to normal playback, select the

PLAY

button in the programme menu with no programme specifi ed. This clears the programme mode and cause normal playback order to be resumed.

Note that skipping forward or back through tracks while in programmed play mode skips through the programmed sequence.

Advanced MP3/WMA/JPEG and audio-CD features

The DV29 DVD player has the ability to handle MP3, WMA and JPEG fi les, when these are burned on to a CD-R or CD-RW disc. Picture/Photo CDs are also playable. These fi le types may be mixed together, if desired.

This section explains the more sophisticated CD-based features, for audio CDs and for CD-ROM discs containing MP3, WMA and JPEG fi les. The operation for audio-CDs and other CD-ROMs is very similar, except that CD-ROMs can have directories and sub-directories, while audio-CDs do not have a directory structure.

In this section of the document, we use the term ‘CD-ROM’ to refer to a CD-R or CD-RW disc containing

MP3, WMA or JPEG fi les, and including Picture/Photo CDs.

All of these advanced features use on-screen menus, so a Display device monitor is required.

Screen layout

When an audio-CD or CD-ROM is detected by the DVD player, the disc navigator screen is displayed.

The screen shown above is the disc navigator screen, in this example showing a CD-R containing MP3 fi les. The following items can be identifi ed:

1

The user command indicator.

2

The mode of the player. This is described in more detail below.

3

The current track number and the total number of tracks in this directory (for CD-ROMs), or on the whole disc (for audio-CDs).

4

The playback time of the current track, and the total playback time.

) is highlighted. This means that loading the disc and pressing

PLAY

or

OK

is enough to set the disc playing.

Player mode

When playing audio-CDs or CD-ROMs, the player can be in one of three modes:

Browse mode

: the user is free to navigate around the disc directory structure (while playback is stopped). Valid fi les/tracks in each directory (audio-CD tracks or fi les that can be played) are displayed on the screen. Pressing

PLAY

while the cursor is on a valid fi le/track will start playback from that point, continuing to the end of the disc. Alternatively, the ‘PD’ or ‘PAF’ buttons can be used to start playback.

Programme mode

: Press

PROG

on the remote control to enter ‘Programme’ mode to choose the order in which the fi les/tracks are played. Playback must be stopped fi rst. ‘Programme’ mode operates differently for audio-CDs and MP3 discs, and is explained on page 22.

Playlist mode

: The player is in this mode when a programmed sequence of fi les/tracks is being played.

No navigation of the disc may be performed in this mode; the player starts at the beginning of the programmed playlist and plays through to the end.

DV29

Browsing the disc (Browse mode)

By default, the disc navigator is in ‘Browse’ mode. In this mode, the user can navigate around the disc

(using the cursor pad for direction and ‘OK’ to select an option). When a fi le/track is highlighted, the tag information for that fi le (if available) is displayed in the lower portion of the screen. Use the ‘Up’ button to move to a higher-level directory; to enter a lower-level directory, press

OK

when the directory name is highlighted.

At any time, press

PLAY

or

OK

to begin playback from the fi le/track highlighted currently. Navigation around the current directory is possible during playback, but playback stops automatically if you attempt to navigate out of the current directory. Please note the following: n

Fast forward and fast rewind do not work with MP3 or WMA playback.

n

Skipping forward past the end of a directory with CD-ROMs causes playback to continue from the next directory containing valid fi les. Skip-back can be performed only as far as the beginning of the current directory.

n

Directory trees may be up to 10 directories deep.

n

Long fi le names, of up to 64 characters (Joliet standard), are supported.

n

Only sample rates of 44.1kHz and 48kHz are supported for MP3 and WMA fi les.

n

For MP3 playback, the following constant bit rates are supported: 32, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 160,

192, 256 and 320 kilobits per second. Variable bit rate (VBR) between 96kb/s and 320kb/s is also supported.

n

For WMA playback, the following constant bit rates are supported: 48, 64, 80, 96, 128, 160 and

192kb/s.

n

CD-ROM discs may contain fi les other than MP3, WMA or JPEGs, but these are not displayed on the screen.

Because of differences in the many MP3 and WMA encoders available, we recommend that you conduct a test recording before transferring large numbers of MP3 fi les to CD-R or CD-RW for subsequent playback on the DV29.

Programmed playback (Audio CDs)

Command and response formats

Communication between the RC and the DV29 takes the form of sequences of ASCII characters, with all commands and responses having the same basic format. With the exception of status triggers (see below), the DV29 shall transmit only to respond to communication from the RC. The DV29 shall always respond to a received command.

Each transmission by the RC shall be five bytes long in the following format:

<STR> <CC> <P1> <P2> <ETR> n

STR (Start transmission): 0x21 n

CC (Command code): the code for the command n

Px (Parameter code): the parameters for the command n

ETR (End transmission): 0xD

Each response by the DV29 shall be seven bytes long in the following format:

<STR> <RC> <AC> <P1> <P2> <P3> <ETR> n

STR (Start transmission): 0x21 n

RC (Reply code): = command code n

AC (Answer code): answer code (see below) n

Px (Parameter code): the parameters for the reponse n

ETR (End transmission): 0xD

The RC shall transmit commands and receive answers according to the following procedure:

1. The RC shall transmit a command.

2. Having issued a command, the RC shall wait at least 100ms before transmitting a subsequent command (otherwise commands may be lost). Ideally, the RC shall wait for an answer from the

DV29 before issuing the next command.

3. The RC shall analyse the RC, AC and Px values of a received message to decide whether the command has been executed normally.

4. The time from the completion of command transmission by the RC to the beginning of the response by the DV29 shall be maximum two seconds.

5. The DV29 shall not accept any commands from the RC for five seconds after the power switch is turned on or a ‘power-on’ command is recieved.

The exception to the above communication protocol is when ‘status triggers’ are enabled by the RC (using the ‘Status Triggers’ command). In this case, the DV29 shall transmit messages whenever the status of the player changes. These messages shall be transmitted by the DV29 at asynchronous intervals.

State changes as a result of other inputs

It is possible that the state of the DV29 may be changed as a result of user input via the front panel buttons or via the IR remote control. Changes resulting from these inputs shall be relayed to the RC

(using the appropriate message type) only if ‘status triggers’ have been enabled by the RC.

For example, if the user changed the front panel display brightness using the

DISP

button on the remote control, a display message (defined below) would be sent to the RC. A similar action would be taken for all other state changes.

Answer codes

The following answer codes are defined: n n n n n
