RGB OUTPUT
POSITIONING THE UNIT
RGB output is available on both the SCART and Component/RGB
sockets and offers picture quality equal to component video.
Place the DV27 on a level, firm surface and ensure that there is
adequate ventilation for the unit.
Use appropriate cables to connect either the SCART connector or
RGB phonos to the TV. Note that if you are using RGB output via
phono connectors, you will also need to use COMPOSITE as a sync
signal.
CONNECTING OUTPUTS: VIDEO
If you are using a SCART connection to your TV, it is best to mute
your TV’s speakers because SCART also carries stereo audio signals;
this prevents audio coming through the TV.
To view the pictures from the DVD player you need to connect one
of its video outputs to a TV, monitor or projector.
AV control: The SCART output has a control signal that switches your
TV to its SCART input when the DV27 is turned on. It will also signal
to wide screen TVs the correct aspect ratio (16:9 or 4:3), provided
these features are supported by the TV.
The DV27 has five video outputs:
■
■
■
■
■
Component video
RGB
S-video
S-VIDEO
Composite video
The S-Video output (also known as S-VHS or Y/C) is commonly
supported by TVs worldwide. Connect the S VIDEO output of the DVD
player to the S-Video input of the TV using an appropriate cable.
Progressive scan component (525P(480P)) video.
You only need to use one type of video from the list. Choose a type
that your TV supports.
COMPOSITE VIDEO
If your TV only offers a composite input (sometimes labelled CVBS or
just ‘video’), connect this to the COMPOSITE video output of the DVD
player using a phono cable suitable for video use.
NOTE: If your TV supports none of these types of video then it’s
time to purchase a new TV!
Note that you may connect equipment such as AV receivers in the
signal path between the DVD player and the TV, so long as that
equipment supports the correct type of video signal. For instructions
on how to connect AV equipment, consult the manual for that
equipment.
PROGRESSIVE VIDEO (525P(480P))
If your television is capable of accepting a progressively scanned video
signal you may wish to connect the progressive (525P(480P)) video
output from the DV27. This is a second, higher quality, component
video connection that outputs a video signal when the DV27 is playing
525 (NTSC) source material. Note that progressive video output is
switched off whenever the DV27 is giving out 625 (PAL) video. If you
are unsure if your TV can accept a progressive video output, please
refer to its instruction manual or consult your dealer.
COMPONENT VIDEO
Use three phono cables to connect the Component Y, Pb, Pr outputs
of the DVD player to the Y, Pb, Pr inputs of the TV. Ensure that the
cables are suitable for video use and that they are approximately
the same length. Some component video interfaces are labelled in
different ways: see the table below if your TV’s component inputs are
not labelled ‘Y, Pb, Pr’.

you use either of these outputs with an incorrect menu setting, the
picture will be coloured in a strange way. Similar effects result from
cross connection of the three signals.

CONNECTING DIGITAL AUDIO
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 coax or optical lead. These digital
outputs provide 2-channel PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS or MPEG multichannel audio, depending on the source material. It is also possible to
set the digital output to always output 2-channel PCM (stereo mixdown) using the setup menu.
If possible, use the coax connection as this may offer slightly better
performance. Connect the coax output of the DVD player to the
digital audio coax 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 ANALOGUE AUDIO
If an external decoder is not available then the DVD player’s analogue
audio outputs will need to be used. You may also wish to use the
analogue outputs when listening to CDs, to take advantage of the
DVD player’s high quality D-A converters.
Two pairs of identical outputs are provided. Connect one of these to
your amplifier’s input using a suitable pair of interconnect cables.
The second set of audio outputs can be used to connect to a second
amplifier setup for ‘multi-room’ use or routed to a tape recorder for
making recordings.
REMOTE CONTROL INPUT
The REMOTE IN input can be used to pass RC5 code to the DV27 if it
is installed in a position (or system) where infrared cannot be used.
CONNECTING TO A POWER SUPPLY
WRONG PLUG?
Check that the plug supplied with the unit fits 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, consult
your Arcam dealer or Arcam Customer Support on
+44 (0)1223 203203.
MAINS LEAD
The appliance is normally supplied with a moulded mains plug already
fitted 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. Should you require a new
mains lead, contact 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 firmly.

USING THE SETUP MENUS
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).
If you have not already done so, now would be a good time to fit the
two AAA batteries in the remote handset, taking care to get them
the correct way round. Select ‘DVD’ using the CD/DVD button on the
remote 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.
Ensure that no disc is playing and press SETUP on the remote control:
a menu appears on the TV screen.
The ‘Setup’ menu is arranged into three pages. The top line of each
shows the current page. To make a change, use the UP/DOWN controls
to highlight the item, then use the LEFT/RIGHT controls to change the
setting.
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.
To change page, highlight the page bar at the top of the screen and use
the LEFT/RIGHT controls to move through the pages.
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.
In the ‘Setup’ menu, the LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN controls ‘wrap around’,
so that with the highlight bar at the bottom of the screen, pressing
DOWN takes the bar to the top of the screen.
To unlock the parental control, highlight ‘Password’ and enter your four
digit number, followed by OK.
NOTE: You can change the password any time you lock the player.
7
RATING
HQ VIDEO (HIGH QUALITY VIDEO)
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.
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 TV used in your country, so it is best not to change it. If it
gets set incorrectly then the picture shown on the TV will have strange
colouring.
The term ‘Parental level’ refers to a standard defined for DVDs.
DVD movies 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.
View All
Component The video output on both the Component video (3
phonos) and SCART is Y, Pb, Pr component video.
RGB SCART The video output on both the Component video (3
phonos) and SCART is RGB. Note that if you are
using RGB output via phono connectors, you will also
need to use COMPOSITE as a sync signal.
Titles of all parental levels will be played
No Adult Only material of parental level 4 or less may be
played. This corresponds to the MPAA (Motion Picture
Association of America) rating of PG-13
TV SYSTEM
This is set at the factory to be appropriate for the type of TV used in
your country. Should you need to change this setting, the options are
explained below.
Kids Only Only material of parental level 1 may be played. This
corresponds to MPAA rating G.
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 specific scenes, so a
disc will play but skip or substitute certain scenes.
NOTE: PAL and NTSC refer to the video standards used in Europe
and North America respectively.
Auto
The video output is taken from that recorded on the disc.
When no movie is playing, the logo screen is displayed using
the standard from the last movie.
NTSC
NTSC discs will be played as NTSC, and PAL discs will not
play at all, since the unit cannot convert PAL to NTSC. This
is the best setting to use if your TV can only accept NTSC
video (this is generally the case in North America).
PAL
PAL is always used as the video standard. Note that NTSC
titles are converted to PAL, but this may cause some
reduction in smoothness of movement. Better results may
be obtained using AUTO; however your TV must then
support NTSC.
OSD (ON SCREEN DISPLAY)
This setting controls the ‘pop up’ messages that appear on screen.
On
Pop-up messages are enabled
Off
No pop-up messages, only menus when required.
Certain messages, such as ‘No Disc’ are always shown regardless of
how this is set.
VIDEO SETUP
PAL60 This is ‘60Hz PAL’. This setting may allow NTSC titles to be
played on certain PAL TVs that do not support NTSC.

BLACK SETUP (PEDESTAL)
This setting controls the ‘pedestal’ signal or black level when the NTSC
video standard is used. Note that it does not affect PAL video in any
way.
0 IRE
TV TYPE
This needs to be set correctly for the type of TV you have and the type
of display you prefer.
7.5 IRE This is the standard pedestal level that should be used in
all countries that use NTSC video, with the exception of
Japan.
4:3 Letterbox Use this setting if you have a conventional 4:3 TV, and
you prefer to view wide screen movies in letterbox
format (with black bars at the top and bottom)
4:3 Panscan
Use this setting if you have a conventional 4:3 TV, 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) TV.
Material in 16:9 format is displayed so as to fill the
screen.
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.
If you have a 4:3 TV and you have set a preference for Panscan, it does
not mean you will always see movies in this format, since the Panscan
display must be supported on that disc.

The DV27 can repeat a specific section of a movie: this is called an A-B
repeat.
To perform an A-B repeat, wait until the movie is at the point where
you want the repeat to start, and press A-B. The TV display will say
‘Repeat A-’, and the front panel display will say ‘A-’. Press A-B again at
the point you want the repeat to end. ‘Repeat A-B’ is displayed on the

BOOKMARKS
CLEARING BOOKMARKS
SETTING BOOKMARKS
It may be necessary to clear bookmarks if you have used the three
markers on a particular disc and now wish to mark different points on
the DVD, or if you have set bookmarks for 100 discs and wish to set
new bookmarks without overwriting others. You will need to clear all
the markers from a disc in order to release any space.
It is possible to ‘bookmark’ up to three points on a DVD title, so you
can jump quickly to those parts of the title in the future. Bookmarks
for up to 100 discs can be stored: when this limit is exceeded, new
bookmarks will overwrite those set earlier. Note that double-sided
discs are treated as two separate discs for the purposes of setting and
clearing bookmarks.
To clear a bookmark, open the bookmark menu by pressing MEM.
Highlight the bookmark you wish to clear using the cursor pad and
press CLEAR on the remote control.
To set a bookmark, wait until the film has played nearly to the
point you wish to mark, and press MEM. The bookmark menu is
superimposed on the picture:
Markers:
0 :01 :22
Mark 1: - : - - : - Mark 2: - : - - : - Mark 3: - : - - : - -
The time field for ‘Mark 1’ is highlighted. At the exact moment you
wish to mark, press OK. Bookmark 1 has now been set.
Markers:

Mark 1: 0 : 1 5 : 2 0
Mark 2: - : - - : - Mark 3: - : - - : - -
To close the bookmark menu, press MEM again.
Alternatively you may set bookmarks 2 and 3 on the same disc by
highlighting the appropriate time field and marking the position(s) by
pressing OK. To close the bookmark menu, press MEM as before.

Advanced CD and VCD features
REPEAT
This section explains the more sophisticated CD and VCD features,
such as special playback modes. The operations described here differ
slightly from DVD but are similar for CDs and VCDs. Note that many
VCDs have a single track, so some operations involving tracks are not
appropriate for VCDs.
Use the cursor pad to highlight the ‘Repeat’ field, and cycle through
‘Off ’, ‘Track’ and ‘All’. Press P MODE to exit and to start playing.
When ‘Repeat: Track’ is set, the loop symbol lights in the display and
the current track is repeated. When ‘Repeat: All’ is set, the loop symbol
and ‘ALL’ lights in the display and the whole disc is repeated.
Many of these advanced features use on-screen menus, so a TV
monitor is required.
To cancel repeat, press
switch it off.
Note that the ‘Repeat: Track/All’ modes can be directly controlled by
pressing RPT on the remote control.
