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

Programming the universal remote control
You can identify the universal remote control by the
inscription Multibrand/Universal.
The universal remote control must be programmed to use the
codes for your appliances of different brands. This is done by
keying in a 4-digit code or by scanning the codes until the
correct one is found. We recommend to using the 4-digit
code. This method is faster and more reliable. The code
scanning method should only be used if you cannot find the
code for one of your appliances. The code table can be found
at the end of the booklet.
Once you have found and tested the codes for your various
appliances, you may want to write them down here.

Important!
VCR ...............................................
The buttons of the remote control must be used for
programming, not the buttons of the receiver or other
appliances.
SAT................................................
DVD ...............................................
Programming with the 4-digit code
1 Keep the source button for the appliance which should be
controlled and2 pressed for 3 seconds.
2 Key in the 4-digit code for the appliance (codetable at the
end of the booklet).
Notes: – If more than 4 digits are entered, the remote
control will recognize only the ones keyed in first.
– If you do not key in a code within 30 seconds the
remote control will switch off the programming
function without changing the code.
– To program a new appliance, simply overwrite the
old code by entering a new one.
Scanning the codetable
1 Switch on the appliance which should be controlled.
2 Keep the source button for the appliance which should be
controlled and2 pressed for 3 seconds.
3 Press and release 2 again.
y The remote control sends the codes for channel up or
standby (depending on the selected source) for one
brand after the other.
4 As soon as the appliance reacts – switches to the next
channel or to standby – press 2 to confirm the code.
y The identified code will be used.
• If the set does not react within 2 minutes, the code for this
appliance is not stored in the remote control. The code of
the remote control will remain unchanged.
Note: When taking out the batteries of the remote control for
more than 1 minute the codes must be reprogrammed.

Resetting the remote control
1 Keep one of the source buttons and 2 pressed for 3
seconds.
2 Key in the 3-digit code 981.
y The remote control is now reset to all its original Philips
codes.

Audio connections
There are analogue and digital connectors available on some
appliances. If possible use the digital connection; usually this
will result in better sound quality. See “Reassigning a source
selection” on how to use the digital connectors of the
receiver.
Because of a different kind of output signal, the use of Dolby
Digital Laserdisc requires an optional AC-3 RF demodulator.

System control bus, CINEMA LINK
If the receiver and your Philips TV (or even better in addition
a Philips VCR or DVD player) are connected with the CINEMA
LINK system bus control, some extra system benefits are
offered:
– Upon starting a source the system will automatically
switch to that input.
– You may control the system via the TV screen. Depending
on the language of the TV, this can be done in your
preferred language.
– The TV can function as the center speaker of your system,
making a separate center speaker unnecessary.
– By pressing the standby button, you can switch the
complete Home Theater System to standby.

TV as the center speaker
You may use your Philips TV with CINEMA LINK as the center
speaker. For TVs with a scart connector an additional audio
cinch-to-scart cable is needed. For TV’s with cinch connectors
additional cinch cables are needed. These cables must be
connected to the blue CENTER PRE-OUT connector on the
back. Look into the instruction manual of your TV on how to
use it as the center speaker.

Positioning of the speakers
General hints for positioning
Avoid positioning the speakers in a corner or on the floor as
this will boost the bass tones too much. Placing the speakers
behind curtains, furniture, etc. will reduce the treble
response. The listener should always be able to ”see” the
speakers.
Each room has different acoustic characteristics and the
positioning possibilities are often limited. You can find the
best position for your speakers by referring to the picture
above.
As a minimum we recommend 5 speakers (2 front, a center,
2 surround) for good surround sound. It is possible to
reproduce some kind of surround sound with fewer speakers.
This is done by redirecting the signals which are foreseen for
the missing speakers to the existing ones. See “Menus” on
how to set up the receiver correctly for the number and size
of the speakers used.
Positioning the front speakers
The front speakers should be placed right and left in front of
the listening position like usual stereo speakers.
Positioning the center speaker
The center speaker should be placed in the center between
the two front speakers, e. g. underneath or on top of the TV.
The best height for the center speaker is the height of the
listener’s ears (while seated).
Positioning the surround speakers
The surround speakers should face each other and be in line
with, or slightly behind the listener.
Positioning the subwoofer
A subwoofer can be used to enhance the bass performance of
your system dramatically. The subwoofer can be positioned
anywhere in the room, because it is not possible to locate the
source of deep tones. Nevertheless, you should not place the
subwoofer in the middle of a room, since the bass could be
severely weakened. Do not place any object on the
subwoofer.
Speaker setup and testing
The relative volume of the speakers must be adjusted for
optimal surround sound. You should be at your usual listening
position when adjusting the speaker volume. See “Receiver
menus” on how to set up the receiver for the used speakers.
1 Press POWER / STANDBY to switch on the receiver.
2 Press TEST TONE on the remote control.
y A test tone coming from the different speakers, except
the subwoofer, is heard.
3 Press +/- REAR on the remote control to
increase/decrease the volume of the actual speaker. The
best result is achieved when all speakers have equal
volume in the listening position.
4 Press TEST TONE on the remote control.
y The test tone stops.
Note: If you are not completely satisfied with the volume
settings, we recommend making minor adjustments to
them during surround sound playback.
Power handling
If the receiver is used at very high power it can produce
distortions which may seriously damage your speakers. If
distortions occur, reduce the volume and the tone controls to
a level where the sound is acceptable again.
To avoid overheating of the set a safety circuit has
been built in. Therefore your set may disconnect under
extreme conditions. If this happens, switch the set off
and let it cool down before reusing it.
Headphones
Connecting headphones to PHONES will switch off the
speakers. The receiver switches to STEREO and surround
sound will be reduced to a stereo signal which is reproducible
by standard headphones.
Disconnecting the headphones switches on the speakers
again. If you wish to enjoy surround sound again, switch the
receiver back to surround sound.

Notes: – The audio and video signal of VCR IN is not
reproduced by VCR OUT. The same applies to the
audio signal of CDR/TAPE IN to CDR/TAPE OUT.
– We recommend not to use the digital output
COAX OUT of the receiver to record from an
analogue source. Use the analogue output
CDR/TAPE instead.
Recording from the digital output
It is possible to connect a digital recorder to the digital output of
the receiver. In this way, all signals coming from the digital
inputs can be recorded directly on the connected audio recorder.
The receiver will also convert all signals coming from the
analogue inputs to the digital output.
The receiver can be used to record digitally a multichannel
surround sound audio signal (Dolby Digital or MPEG) from, for
example, DVD to CD-R. The receiver will convert the digital
multichannel signal into a stereo signal without loss of relevant
sound information.
Notes: – Do not use the 3D SURROUND feature while making
digital recordings as this will distort the digital
audio signal.
– When recording a Dolby Digital or MPEG signal, each
track must be recorded individually.

About surround sound
Surround sound settings
Surround sound gives you a complete new listening
sensation. You will have the feeling of being in the middle of
the action, because sound is coming from everywhere around
you. Look out for TV broadcasts, audio and video tapes and
discs with the 3 1 or
marks which are encoded for multichannel surround sound.
You should prefer Dolby Digital or MPEG Multichannel to get
the best out of your receiver.
HALL
The sound reproduction is enhanced and a slight echo is
added. This gives the impression of being in a large room.
Can only be used in stereo mode.
Notice that DVDs do not always carry full multichannel
surround. To be sure that a disc is multichannel encoded
consult your dealer.
Most ordinary stereo tapes and discs can be replayed using
surround sound settings with good results. If the reproduction
is distorted in surround mode, switch to normal stereo mode.
The availabilty of the various surround sound modes
described depends on the number of speakers used and the
incoming sound information.
Switching surround sound
With surround sound on, you can switch through the different
surround modes. Note that the possibilities are related to
speaker setup defined in the receivers menu.
If a digital surround signal is detected, the receiver will scroll
either DOLBY DIGITAL or MPEG.
1 Press SURROUND ON/OFF to switch on the surround sound.
y The surround mode in use is scrolled.
2 Press SURR. MODE repeatedly to listen to the different
surround modes (if available).
yThe chosen mode and the speakers used are displayed.
If the incoming multichannel signals are reduced to
fewer output signals, DOWNMIX is displayed.

SURROUND SOUND
SURROUND
The surround mode enables normal surround sound reproduction
with 4 or 5 speakers. Depending on the source material, Dolby
Surround Pro Logic, Dolby Digital or MPEG is reproduced.
PRO LOGIC, DOLBY DIGITAL, MPEG
In addition to SURROUND, the surround mode used –
depending on the source material – will be displayed. In case
of digital surround, the sound format AC-3 (for Dolby Digital) or
MPEG (for MPEG 2 Multichannel) will be displayed, followed by
the sound channels, available on the source (e. g. DVD).
Example: AC-3 3/2.1 Dolby Digital, 3 front channels,
2 surround channels and a subwoofer
channel.
MPEG 2/0.0 MPEG Multichannel, stereo sound only.
AC-3 3/1.0 Dolby Digital, 3 front channels, 1
(mono) surround channel without
subwoofer signal.
FRONT-3 STEREO
The surround sound is muted. 3 Stereo lets you listen to
surround sound without using the surround speakers.
3D SURROUND
The sound of the rear channel is simulated by the front
speakers. Surround sound is simulated through the front left,
right and center speakers. The position of the listener
