the speakers’ channels’.
Note: 1 ms increase/decrease of delay time is equivalent to one (1) foot
change in distance. Use the longer delay time settings when the rear
speakers are closer to the listener than the front speakers.

This setting is only required if you are using the HDMI
OUT socket to connect your TV or other display device
(see ‘Option 4: Connecting to a HDMI-compatible TV’).
{ Off }

can still enjoy the sound output through
the speaker system.
{ All }
– The HDMI audio output will be same as
the audio stream being played back. In
the case when the playback audio format
is not supported, the audio output will be
changed to PCM (Pulse Code
Modulation) automatically.
{ PCM only } – Downmix the audio signals to linearPCM (2-channel).
Notes:
– It may take a while for this unit and the input device to communicate
and initialise.
– It is not possible to listen to SACDs or copy-controlled DVD-Audio

52
Why does it take so long to display the
contents on my USB device?
– This could be due to the large numbers
of files (>500 files/folders) or size of the
files (>1MB).
– There could be other non-supported files
in the device that this unit is trying to
read/display.
What if un-supported devices (e.g. USB
mouse, keyboards) are plugged into
this unit?
The device may cause this unit to be
unstable. Remove the unsupported device
and unplug the mains cord. Wait for a few
minutes before reconnecting the mains cord
and power on this unit again.
What happens when I plug in a USB
HDD?
HDD is not supported as the large storage
capacity makes navigation very difficult.
Transfer the music files (mp3) and photos
(jpg) into a flash drive.
Why does this unit fail to detect my
USB portable music player?
The portable music player may require
propriety software that is bundled with our
system in order to access the contents (eg.
playlist). MTP class not supported, only can
support mass storage class devices.
What types of file does this unit
support?
We support only FAT16 and FAT32, not
NTFS.
Why does the file name appear to be
different from what was displayed on my
computer (e.g. from ‘Good Bye. jpg’ to
‘Good_B~1.jpg’)?
– The length of the file name is restricted
by the file system of the device (FAT16),
which only supports eight (8) characters.
– The computer may be able to display the
full file name as the operating system can
convert the file system.
Is simultaneous USB and Disc playback
possible?
This is not possible due to memory
limitation. In addition, a different user
interface will be needed in order to function
and in order to be simple enough to use.
Why can’t I rotate the pictures in my
device?
In order to rotate the pictures in the USB
device, the picture must contain EXIF
information, stored by most digital cameras.
This EXIF information may have been
removed when you edit or copy the picture
from other devices using editing
programmes.
Why can’t this unit play some of my
music files, photos or movies?
The music files may not be playable because
of different formats and encoding bit-rates.
Similarly, the photos may be of low
resolution or too high resolution for this unit
to support.

provides a convincing three dimensional
sound field on conventional stereo music
recordings and is ideally suited to bring the
surround experience to automotive sound.
While conventional surround programming
is fully compatible with Dolby Surround Pro

backward-compatible with DVI.
As required by the HDMI standard,
connecting to HDMI or DVI products
without HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection) will result in no Video
or Audio output.
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection) is a specification that provides a
secure transmission of digital contents
between different devices (to prevent
unauthorized copyright).
JPEG: A very common digital still picture
