INTRODUCTION
The Myryad MXV4000 DVD Player has been designed
to offer a combination of high quality sound and video
reproduction together with elegant styling in keeping with
other Myryad MX products. It is a full-function remotecontrolled DVD player that will play a wide variety of
silver disc types. Playback formats accepted include:
DVD-Video, VCD, SVCD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW,
CD, CD-R, CD-RW, HDCD, MP3, WMA, SACD multichannel, SACD stereo, JPEG (picture CD), JPEG with
MP3, Xvid and DivX.
The MXV4000 has composite, s-video and component
analogue video outputs, plus an HDMI digital video
output with upscaling available to 720p or 1080i formats
using a Faroudja DCDi de-interlacer/upscaler. It has
fixed-level low-impedance audio outputs – both 5.1
channel and a separate stereo downmix which is always
present and can be used to feed sound to a second
room/zone if desired. The composite and s-video outputs
are also permanently present so they too can be used
for a second room/zone. Built-in Dolby Digital and DTS
decoding is provided, together with Dolby Pro Logic II
and Virtual Surround options.
The MXV4000 has coaxial and optical digital audio
outputs to feed a surround processor or receiver. In
addition it has a Smart My-Link® control input and output
and an RS232 control port.
The MXV4000 offers a range of expansion possibilities:
•
The Smart My-Link® input can be connected to a
Myryad surround preamp-processor or integrated
amplifier or so that the MXV4000 will automatically
be switched on or off when the amplifier is switched
on or off.
•
The Smart My-Link® input/output can be coupled to
other Myryad products that can then be remotecontrolled via the MXV4000 's infra-red receiver - or
vice-versa.
•
The MXV4000 can be controlled from a remote
room via its Smart My-Link® input.
•
•
When linked via the Smart My-Link® to a
compatible Myryad surround preamp-processor or
integrated amplifier a number of extra features
become available which make the system as a
whole easier and quicker to operate.
The RS232 port can be used for control of the
MXV4000 in a home automation system.

SETTING UP YOUR SYSTEM
REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS
Power
1. Power Inlet
The MXV4000 will operate directly from any line voltage
from 100V to 240V AC, 50 or 60Hz without adjustment.
Plug the female (socket) end of the power cord into the
power inlet on the rear of the unit. Plug the male (plug)
end of the cord into a "live" wall socket or a suitable
heavy-duty extension cable.
2. Power Switch
Press one side of this rocker switch (the side nearer the
edge of the rear panel) to switch the MXV4000 ON and
the other side (towards the output sockets) to switch it
OFF. When the POWER switch is in the OFF position all
power is disconnected from the MXV4000. In this
condition the MXV4000 cannot be powered up from the
front panel or the remote control. When the POWER
switch is in the ON position (and the power cord
correctly inserted and plugged in to a live wall socket)
the unit will power up in standby mode (see FRONT
PANEL CONTROLS, STANDBY, page 7).
It is recommended that the POWER switch is turned
OFF if the MXV4000 is not going to be used for an
extended period of time.
- S-video is next, but it’s a big step down in picture
quality from component video.
- Composite video is the lowest quality but is the most
common type of connection, can easily be routed to a
second room, and it is recommended for use during
setup.
Apart from when setting up, connect only one of the
video outputs for your primary viewing area, or “main
zone”. The composite video and s-video outputs are
always active so one of these may be used for a second
TV or second zone.
3. HDMI (see page 20 for HDMI video setup)
Connect the HDMI output connector of the MXV4000 to
the HDMI input connector on your TV (or to a DVI input
using an adaptor) using a high quality HDMI-certified
cable. If your TV does not have an HDMI or DVI
connector you should skip to “Component video” below.
Note: If connecting to a DVI input, it must support
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection),
otherwise it will not be compatible with the MXV4000.
Some earlier model TVs with DVI inputs are not HDCPcompliant. DVI inputs carry digital video only – the audio
must be connected separately.
Video Outputs
Make the video connection between the MXV4000 and
your TV first - either direct as described below or via the
video inputs on your surround processor (or AV
receiver). A video connection is required to view the
MXV4000’s setup menu on your TV.
The MXV4000 includes four different types of video
outputs. Choose the best quality video output for which
your TV has a matching input.
- HDMI provides the best picture quality. Only High
Definition or “HD ready” TVs include an HDMI input.
- Component video is the next best and consists of three
separate cables.
4. COMPONENT VIDEO outputs
The three component video jacks are identified with
green, red and blue inserts for Y, Pr and Pb respectively.
Use a high-quality component video cable of 75 ohm
impedance. The cable’s plugs will usually be colourcoded to match the coding on the MXV4000 and your
TV.
Note: The component video output is automatically
switched off when HDMI video signals are being output.
page 4 of 28
5. SCAN MODE selector switch (Interlaced
/ Progressive)
This switch selects between Interlaced (INT) and
Progressive (PROG) Scan for the component video
outputs only.
8. DIGITAL - COAX and OPTICAL
Select PROG if your TV accepts progressive scan video.
The PROG SCAN icon on the VF display will illuminate
when progressive scan is set. The states of the various
analogue video outputs will be as summarized in the
table below.

Connect either the Digital COAX jack or the OPTICAL
connector (Toslink) to one of the coaxial or optical inputs
on your surround processor or receiver. When using the
coaxial output, make sure to use a digital cable that is
made for this purpose and is of 75 ohms impedance.
Toslink cables are fragile; be very careful not to bend the
fibre optic cable sharply.
Note: The coaxial and optical digital outputs do not carry
SACD digital audio signals – whether from stereo or
multi-channel discs. To play SACDs you must also
connect the 5.1 channel or stereo analogue audio output
jacks.
9. HDMI
Notes:
* Some TVs and projectors are not compatible with
progressive scan. If you notice picture distortion
when outputting the progressive signals, switch the
SCAN MODE selector to INT.
* The SCAN MODE switch only affects the
component video outputs, not the HDMI output.
* When SCAN MODE is set to progressive the
s-video and composite video outputs still deliver their
normal interlaced outputs (suitable for sending to a
second TV set), but they will not be affected by the
“TV Type” setting in the Video Setup menu – see
pages 11 and 19.
6. S-VIDEO
The s-video (separated video) connector carries the
colour information separately from the black-and-white
(luminance). It should be connected via a suitable 75
ohm s-video interconnect to the s-video input of an A/V
preamplifier or amplifier – or direct to the s-video input of
a TV.
7. Composite video (CVBS)
This output (also called CVBS) carries the composite
video signal and should be connected via a suitable 75
ohm video interconnect to the composite video input of
an A/V preamplifier or amplifier – or direct to the
composite video input of a TV (sometimes simply called
the VIDEO input).
Note: The composite video and s-video outputs are
active under all conditions – whatever the
interlaced/progressive switch setting and irrespective of
the HDMI output. Either may therefore conveniently be
used to feed a second TV or, a second zone (via the
MXD4000 processor for example).
The HDMI digital video output also carries digital audio.
Some surround processors and receivers can decode
the audio in the HDMI signal and therefore no other
audio connection is necessary for main zone audio.
When using a surround processor or receiver which
does not have an HDMI input or does not decode HDMI
audio, always connect the Digital Coaxial or Optical
outputs and/or the 5.1 channel analog audio outputs.
Notes:
* The MXV4000 supports HDMI 1.1 which does not
include playback of SACD audio over HDMI.
* HDMI audio can be switched off via the setup
menu – see page 19.
* When HDMI audio is switched On and audio
signals are being set to an HDMI compatible
component (e.g. a TV), the coax and optical digital
audio outputs will be muted.
* The HDMI interface can add significant jitter to
audio signals. For the best audio quality it is often
considered best to carry the audio over a separate
digital cable – coax or optical.
10.
STEREO ANALOGUE OUTPUT
The stereo output always carries a down-mixed version
of a multi-channel audio sound track – or a direct stereo
output of any 2-channel sound track (e.g. from a CD).
This output may be used for a stereo main room, or it
can be used to feed audio to a second room or zone.
11. MULTI-CHANNEL ANALOGUE
OUTPUTS
Connect these jacks to the corresponding multi-channel
input jacks of a surround processor or AV receiver.
If you want to reproduce high resolution multi-channel
SACD recordings you must connect these outputs –
there will be no signal on the HDMI or Digital Coaxial or
Optical outputs. If you do not plan on listening to SACD
discs, and your processor or receiver has a digital input
and can decode Dolby Digital and DTS sound tracks,
then you do not need to use these jacks.
It is a special feature of the MXV4000 that both the
Stereo and Multi-channel analogue outputs use high
quality DACs and identical audio circuitry, so the sound
quality will be the same across all the audio outputs.

Control inputs/outputs etc.
12.
MY-LINK input/output
When this DVD player is used in a system with other
Myryad MX-Series products (or Z-Series), all may be
joined together via My-Link. My-Link is a
communications bus that allows all the linked
components to operate together as a system and
distributes the remote commands received by any one to
each of the others.
The simplest function provided by the My-Link bus is that
all linked units will switch into or out of standby mode
when the processor or amplifier’s front panel or remote
control standby key is pressed.
The My-Link bus allows any linked product to be remotecontrolled via the MXV4000’s infra-red receiver - or viceversa.
The MXV4000 (or any other product on the My-Link bus)
can be controlled from a remote room via a suitable
interface to the My-Link bus.
Use a short RCA-to-RCA (phono-to-phono) interconnect
cable to connect from the MY-LINK IN socket on the
MXV4000 to the MY-LINK OUT socket on the processor
or amplifier. A second cable may then be run from the
MY-LINK OUT socket on MXV4000 to the MY-LINK IN
socket on, for example, a Myryad tuner – “daisy-chain”
fashion. Further compatible Myryad products can be
linked in the same way, running from the MY-LINK OUT
socket on the tuner. Inexpensive interconnects may be
used as the My-Link bus carries only control signals, not
audio, as these cables have no effect on sound quality.
The MXV4000 is Smart My-Link® compatible. When it is
linked to a Myryad Smart My-Link® Processor,
Preamplifier or Integrated Amplifier many more powerful
system features are available (see page 8).
13.
RS232 CONTROL input
The MXV4000 can be connected to a home automation
system through this interface. Contact your Myryad
dealer or Armour Home Electronics Ltd. for details or
visit the Myryad website at www.myryad.co.uk.

OPERATING YOUR SYSTEM
FRONT PANEL CONTROLS
4. Disc drawer
1. Standby
When the MXV4000 is plugged into a live wall socket
and the POWER switch is turned ON, it will power up in
"standby" mode and the LED (Light Emitting Diode) in
the display will glow red. In this mode most of the
internal circuitry of the MXV4000 is switched off so that it
consumes very little power. Only the IR receiver, MyLink and RS232 interface function in standby.
Touch the STANDBY ellipse to turn on the MXV4000
and, after a few seconds delay, the audio and video
outputs will be enabled. During this delay period the LED
in the display will flash blue. When the outputs are unmuted it will glow blue continuously. The blue-coloured
display will illuminate, briefly showing “MXV4000”
followed by “READ”, and then “NO DISC“.
Touch the STANDBY ellipse again - for longer than 2
seconds - to return to standby mode. The drawer, if
open, will close, the LED in the display will glow red
again and the VF display will be extinguished.
The OPEN/CLOSE button controls the drawer. The
drawer will close automatically if left open for two
minutes or more. It will accept either normal 120mm
discs, or small 80mm discs.
5. OPEN/CLOSE
Press this button to open or close the disc drawer. When
the drawer is open the display will read “OPEN”. When
the drawer is closed the display will indicate “CLOSE”
followed by “READ” and then “NO DISC“. The tray will
close automatically if left open for two minutes.
When a disc is inserted and the drawer closed the
display will indicate “READ” briefly and then the disc will
play automatically. The display will briefly indicate the
disc type and default “Sound Mode” (see page 13)
before showing the disc play status. The read process
takes a few seconds while the player assesses what
type of disc has been inserted.
Pressing OPEN/CLOSE cancels SHUFFLE and
REPEAT modes.
CAUTION: WHEN IN STANDBY MODE SOME
INTERNAL CIRCUITRY OF THE MXV4000 IS STILL
LIVE, SO ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS MUST BE
FOLLOWED.
6. PLAY/PAUSE
2. Infra-red receiver
The infra-red (IR) remote control receiver is mounted
behind the window, just above the left hand end of the
VF display. It must not be obscured when the DVD
player is to be operated using the remote control
handset. The IR receiver should be in "line-of-sight" of
the remote handset.
3. Display
The operation of the player is indicated on a high quality
blue Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) - see below.
When a disc is present and the player is in STOP mode,
a single press of the PLAY/PAUSE key will start the disc
playing from the first track, and illuminate the symbol
in the VF display. When the disc is playing, pressing
PLAY/PAUSE will put the player in PAUSE mode and
illuminate “” symbol and the VF display will read
“PAUSE”. When playing a DVD the TV will show a still
frame. In PAUSE mode the disc is still spinning and the
laser head is kept at the same location, so that if
PLAY/PAUSE is pressed yet again the disc will re-start
from exactly the same point in the movie/music at which
it was originally paused.
page 7 of 28
7. STOP
When the STOP button is pressed the disc stops
playing, and the player goes into “Resume Stop” mode –
with the TV displaying “PRESS PLAY KEY TO
CONTINUE” and the VF display reading “STOP”. If
PLAY/PAUSE or PLAY is pressed in Resume Stop
mode the disc will start playing from the same point at
which STOP was pressed.
A second press of STOP will put the player into STOP
mode. After a short time the disc will stop spinning and
the laser head will be returned to the beginning of the
disc. In stop mode the display continues to read “STOP”.
When the player is in “stop” mode, a single press of the
PLAY/PAUSE button will start the disc playing from the
beginning. The player automatically returns to STOP
mode when a disc has finished playing.
There is no Resume Stop mode when playing CDs.
When STOP is pressed the VF display immediately
changes to read the Table of Contents – the total
number of tracks and total playing time of the disc
If the player is left in Stop, Resume Stop, or Pause mode
for more than about 30 minutes, it will automatically
switch to standby to save power.
8. VIDEO OFF
SYSTEM OPERATION WITH
SMART MY-LINK
When used as a linked system (which must include a
Smart My-Link® equipped Preamplifier Processor,
Stereo Preamp or Integrated Amplifier) Myryad products
equipped with Smart My-Link® have a number of extra
features that make the system as a whole easier and
quicker to use than a normal hi-fi. These include:
Start-on-Play (DVD)
Press play on the DVD player (or the remote control)
and both the DVD player and amplifier will switch out of
standby (if necessary) and play the DVD. The amplifier
will automatically select the DVD source.
Start-on-Open (DVD)
Press open/close on the DVD player (or the remote
control) and both the DVD player and amplifier will
switch out of standby and the DVD drawer will open. The
amplifier will automatically select the DVD source.
Intelligent Input Selection (Amplifier)
Press a source select button on the remote control and
the system will awaken (if in standby) only the amplifier
and the selected source.
Pressing the VIDEO OFF button when a CD is loaded
and playing will switch off all the analogue video outputs
to provide the best possible audio quality. The VIDEO
OFF icon in the VF display will be illuminated. A second
press will restore the video outputs. The HDMI output is
not affected.
Mute/Pause Control (Amplifier/DVD)
When using the DVD player, selecting mute from the
remote control will mute the amplifier and pause the
DVD. When the amplifier mute is cancelled, the DVD will
continue playing.
VIDEO OFF only functions with CDs – and can only be
changed when a disc is actually playing. The video state
will be remembered when changing CDs (although the
video output switches on temporarily whilst the drawer is
open), but the video outputs will automatically switch
back on permanently when a DVD or other video disc is
loaded, or when the unit is switched on from Standby.
Power-Saving Mode (Amplifier)
The amplifier can switch the DVD Player, Tuner or CD
player into standby if that source remains unselected for
more than ten minutes.
9. SKIP/SCAN Automatic Switch-On (DVD/Tuner/CD)
If the standby button on the DVD player, Tuner or CD
player is pressed, the amplifier will also awaken and
select the correct source.
The SKIP/SCAN keys are used to select the chapter or
track, or section within a chapter/track, to be played. A
brief press of one of these keys invokes the SKIP
function. Pressing the key and holding it down
continuously invokes the SCAN function.
While a disc is playing, pressing SKIP/SCAN briefly
will cause the player to skip to the beginning of the next
chapter or track. If SKIP/SCAN is pressed once, the
player will skip to the beginning of the current
chapter/track. If SKIP/SCAN is pressed twice in quick
succession the player will skip to the beginning of the
previous chapter/track. Repeated pressing of
SKIP/SCAN or will make the player skip forward or
back over any number of chapters/tracks. The SKIP
keys have the same function in PAUSE mode, but
automatically return the player to PLAY mode.
Press and hold SKIP/SCAN or until “SCAN“ is
displayed on the VF display (and “x2” on the TV) and
then release to enter fast reverse/forward play at twice
normal speed. Further shorter presses of the same key
will then increase the scan speed to x4, x8, x16 and x32.
One further press will return to normal speed forward
play. Pressing PLAY/PAUSE at any time during high
speed scan will return to normal speed forward play.

1. ESSENTIAL SETUP
This section describes the basic system setup necessary
for operation in the majority of home cinema systems.
The remaining setup menu details are described in
pages 17-21
For system setup a TV or monitor must be connected to
one of the MXV4000’s video outputs. A composite video
(CVBS) or s-video connection is recommended for initial
setup because these outputs remain active with
interlaced video in all modes. With the exception of the
Progressive/Interlaced switch on the rear panel (see
page 5), all of the setup procedure is carried out using
the remote control handset and On-Screen-Displays.
Press the SETUP key on the remote control to access
the setup menu. Any disc playing will pause and the
setup menu will appear as below.
Within each setup menu page, use the and keys to
choose the desired option, followed by SEL to confirm

As an example, the selection of the Analog Output is
described below in detail.
1.1
Audio Setup Page
As soon as the audio setup page is selected ANALOG
OUTPUT is automatically chosen (indicated by white
lettering) with the three parameter options shown to the
right of the screen. The current parameter setting (e.g.
MULTI-CHANNEL) appears in yellow, the others in blue.
Press SEL or to make a change to the ANALOG
OUTPUT. The current parameter will change to white
text and the and keys may be used to choose an
alternative setting (e.g. STEREO). Press SEL to confirm
this selection and exit the parameter setup or press at
any stage to return without change. The chosen setting
will always be shown in yellow.
The same procedure is used to navigate and change
settings in all the setup menus.
The five icons at the top of the screen represent, from
left to right General Setup, Audio Setup, Video Setup,
Preferences and Exit. When Setup is first pressed the
menu opens at the General Setup Page with the leftmost
icon illuminated at the top of the screen.
Note: the Preferences menu is only accessible when the
unit is the player is in STOP mode (not Stop-Resume),
or with no disc or with the disc drawer open.
The setup menus are navigated using the navigation
keys and SEL. Use the and keys to
highlight the desired setup menu. Press once to
choose the Audio Setup Page and then SEL or to
select this menu.
ANALOG OUTPUT
This function changes what appears at the 5.1 channel
analogue audio outputs and duplicates the remote
“SOUND MODE” key. Whatever the sound track; the
STEREO analogue audio output always carries a 2channel downmix. When the sound track is in stereo it is
sent unchanged to the Front Left and Right 5.1 outputs
and to the stereo output.
The parameter options are:
STEREO
Multi-channel sound tracks are mixed
down to stereo on the Front Left and Right outputs.
Two channel sound tracks will be output unchanged
from Front Left/Right. Use this setting if the system
connected to Front Left/Right has only two
loudspeakers.
VIRTUAL SURR
Generates a “virtual” surround
effect through two loudspeakers, via the Front Left
and Right outputs. Use this setting if the system
connected to FL/FR has only two loudspeakers in
order to get a spacious sound effect.
MULTI-CHANNEL In this mode 5.1 channel Dolby
Digital or DTS soundtracks will be decoded and sent
to the 5.1 channel outputs. Two channel soundtracks
will be processed using Dolby Pro Logic II to deliver
surround sound. Use this setting when the multichannel outputs are connected to a 5.1 channel
playback system.
The default setting is MULTI-CHANNEL.

DIGITAL AUDIO
Choose DIGITAL AUDIO and press SEL to access the
digital audio setup page.
The first menu item is DIGITAL OUTPUT which selects
the signal delivered to the coax and optical digital
outputs (it does not affect the HDMI audio output). The
parameter options are:
OFF
Coax and Optical digital outputs switched
off.
ALL
All sound tracks types, PCM, Dolby Digital
and DTS, sent to digital outputs. Use this setting if
the digital output is fed to a receiver or processor
which has Dolby Digital and DTS decoding.
PCM ONLY Only PCM (2-channel stereo) sound
tracks are sent direct to the digital outputs. Multichannel sound tracks are downmixed to stereo. Use
this setting if the digital output is fed to a receiver or
processor or TV which cannot decode Dolby Digital
or DTS sound tracks.
The default setting is ALL.
The second menu item is LPCM OUTPUT which can be
set to 48 or 96kHz. This only affects certain discs which
have 24bit 96kHz soundtracks. Only set to 96kHz if your
receiver or processor can accept 96kHz PCM inputs.
Otherwise set to 48kHz and the MXV4000 will downsample to 48kHz when necessary.
The default setting is 48kHz
HDMI AUDIO
This allows the audio in the HDMI output to be set On or
Off. Set to Off if you do not want to use the audio from
the HDMI output. When the HDMI AUDIO output is set
On, and audio signals are being set to an HDMI
compatible component (e.g. a TV), the other digital audio
outputs will be muted. The default the HDMI AUDIO
output setting is OFF.
Notes:
– When DIGITAL AUDIO is set to OFF, but HDMI
AUDIO is set to ON and an HDMI connection is
established between the monitor and processor/
receiver, digital audio signals will still be present on
the HDMI output.
– When DIGITAL AUDIO is set to ALL, PCM digital
audio signals will be sent to the HDMI output if the
monitor/ processor/receiver only supports PCM
format.
For details of the other Audio Setup menu items, see full
setup section on page 18.

system only” TV. The MXV4000 will process video
signals from NTSC discs and output them in PAL
format.
NTSC
Select this if the connected TV is an
“NTSC system only” TV. The MXV4000 will process
video signals from PAL discs and output them in
NTSC format.
MULTI
Select this if the connected TV is
compatible with both NTSC and PAL formats (a
multi-system TV). The output format will be in
accordance with the video signals from the disc.

3. PLAYING A CD
4. PLAYING AN SACD
In most respects playing a CD is exactly the same as
playing a DVD. This section therefore just describes the
main differences in operation.
The SACD (Super Audio CD) standard is based on DSD
(Direct Stream Digital) technology. The DSD format is a
1-bit system that has a digital sampling frequency 64
times higher than that of conventional audio CDs. There
are three types of SACD discs: single-layer, dual-layer
and hybrid discs. An SACD may contain up to two areas
of recorded information: a High Quality Stereo area and
a High Quality Multi-channel area.
– A single layer disc can contain both information areas.
– A dual layer disc can contain both information areas,
but double the information can be stored on the disc.
– A hybrid disc can contain both information areas, and
also a second, “CD” layer, so it can be played on
standard CD players.
When a CD is inserted and the disc drawer closed the
VF display will briefly read “CDDA” followed by the
current Sound Mode (see page 13), the “CD” icon will be
illuminated and the disc will start playing automatically.
3.1
PAUSE
When playing a CD the PAUSE key will only pause disc
playback. A second press of PAUSE, or pressing PLAY,
will return to normal play.
3.2
SCAN / (remote and front panel)
The same scan speeds, from x2 to x32 are available as
when playing DVDs. When the or key is pressed
the scan speed is changed and the VF display briefly
shows SEARCH, before showing the track number and
time data as before. The audio output is present whilst
scanning a CD to facilitate cueing.
3.3
Slow Forward/Reverse ( )
Slow Forward and Reverse (using the cursor up/down
keys) are not available with CDs.
3.4
SOUND MODE
Stereo, Virtual Surround and Dolby Pro Logic II modes
are available when playing CDs (see page 13).
3.5
ON SCREEN DISPLAY (“TIME” key on remote)
When playing a CD the TIME key is used to change the
time displayed on the VFD – and the same time display
will be shown on the TV display if it is switched on. The
VF display normally shows track number and the
elapsed track time. Pressing the TIME key changes this
to remaining track time. Further key presses change to
total elapsed disc time and then total remaining disc
time, finally returning to the elapsed track time.
3.6
REPEAT
The REPEAT function when playing a CD is similar to
with a DVD, except that there are only two repeat modes
available: Repeat Track (with “REPEAT 1” icon lit on VF
display) and Repeat Disc (with “REPEAT ALL” icon lit
on VF display).
When an SACD is loaded, the VF display will briefly read
“SACD”, the SACD icon will be illuminated, playback will
start automatically and the TV screen will display the
current playing status and track list for the current
playback area.
Playing an SACD is almost identical to playing a CD, but
there can be the additional facility to choose the
information area. When playing the CD layer of a hybrid
SACD, operation is exactly the same as with a
conventional CD.
Changing the SACD playback area and layer
To change the SACD playback (information) area
between 6 channel and 2 channel, press SOUND
MODE. To change between SACD and CD layers, press
AUDIO when in Stop mode.
• On hybrid discs (with SACD and CD layers), the
player will always start playing the SACD layer (multichannel area).
• Switch between the SACD multi-channel and SACD
stereo areas (if available) by pressing SOUND MODE
or, when the TV display is on, select the desired folder
using and press SEL to confirm. Then press to
select a track and press SEL to confirm. The VF display
will briefly read “SACD 6” for multi-channel and “SACD
2” for stereo.
• To switch between the SACD layer and the CD layer,
press AUDIO while playback is stopped. The selected
SACD layer will also be indicated by the “SACD” or “CD”
icon being illuminated at the left of the VF display.
Notes:
– SACD Text is not supported.
– If SOUND MODE is pressed while an SACD is
playing, the disc will restart from track 1 of the new area.
– There is no digital audio output (coax, optical or
HDMI) when playing the SACD layer.

When any speaker is set to “Small”, bass frequencies
below 120Hz in that channel are re-directed to the
subwoofer.
FRONT SPEAKER
Set to LARGE if Front Left
and Right speakers can reproduce frequencies
below 120Hz. Otherwise set to SMALL.
CENTER SPEAKER
Set to LARGE if Centre
speaker can reproduce frequencies below 120Hz.
Otherwise set to SMALL. Set to OFF if there is no
Centre speaker; centre channel information will then
be sent to the Front Left and Right speakers.
SURROUND SP
Set to LARGE if Surround Left
and Right speakers can reproduce frequencies
below 120Hz. Otherwise set to SMALL. Set to OFF if
there are no Surround speakers; surround
information will then be sent to the Front Left and
Right speakers.
SUBWOOFER
Set to ON if a Subwoofer is
installed, to OFF if there is no Subwoofer. Do not set

SPEAKERS DELAY
Choose this option and press SEL to bring up the
SPEAKERS DELAY SETUP screen. The audio
delays to the, CENTER, SURROUND L and
SURROUND R speakers can be adjusted as
necessary over the range 0 to 15 milliseconds (ms)
in 1ms steps, using the and navigation keys.
The correct delays can be calculated by measuring
the distance from the listening position to each of the
speakers. The distances to the Centre, Surround Left
and Surround Right speakers should then each be
subtracted from the Front Left/Right distance. If the
distance is measured in feet, multiply this difference
figure by 0.9 to get the required delay in milliseconds
– if in metres, multiply by 2.9. For example:
With the Front Left and Right speakers 3.0m from the
listener, delays should be set as in the table below.
3m minus

page 19 of 28
TV DISPLAY
Set this parameter to 4:3 PAN SCAN, 4:3 LETTER BOX,
or 16:9 to suit the aspect ratio of your TV screen. The
default setting is 4:3 PAN SCAN.
ADV PICTURE
The Advanced Picture settings allow fine-tuning of
various video parameters.
4:3 PAN SCAN Select this if you have a normal TV. It
will increase the picture height of a
widescreen video to fill the screen, and
selectively cut off the sides to fit your screen.
This is only effective when Pan-Scan
information is recorded on the disc. Otherwise
the picture will be in Letter Box mode.
4:3 LETTER BOX
Select this if you have a normal TV.
It will display widescreen pictures with black
margins above and below.
16:9
Select this if you have a widescreen TV. Note:
depending on the DVD disc format, e.g.
2.35:1, there may still be narrow black
margins above and below the picture.
DCDI (HDMI only): DCDi® (Directional Correlational
Deinterlacing) eliminates the jagginess that conventional
upscalers and de-interlacers introduce to diagonal edges
in video. DCDi’s unique algorithm identifies all the
moving edges in a scene and adjusts the angle of
interpolation at each pixel so that the interpolation
always follows the edge instead of crossing it,
eliminating staircasing or jagged edge artifacts. This
function is available for HDMI progressive scan only and
can be set ON or OFF. The default setting is ON.
BLACK LEVEL (Region 1 units only)
When TV TYPE is set to NTSC, setting BLACK LEVEL
enhancement ON should improve the colour contrast
during playback making blacks darker. The black level
setting has no effect when TV TYPE is set to PAL. The
default BLACK LEVEL enhancement setting is OFF.
CLOSED CAPTION (Region 1 units only)
Closed captions are data hidden in the video signals of
specific discs, and are invisible without the use of a
special decoder. The difference between subtitles and
captions is that subtitles are intended for hearing
persons and captions are for the hearing impaired.
Subtitles rarely show all of the audio. For example,
captions show sound effects (e.g., “phone ringing” and
“footsteps”), while subtitles do not. Before you select this
function, please ensure that the disc contains closed
caption information and your TV set also supports this
function. The CLOSED CAPTION option may be set ON
or OFF- the default setting is OFF.

TINT:
Adjust this value to change the hue
of the picture. The range is ±9.
COLOR:
Increase the value to increase the
colour saturation in the picture or vice versa. The
range is ±9.
In each case, zero (0) is the normal setting value.
After making adjustments press SEL to store this
Personal Setup and return to the Video Setup menu.
The ADV PICTURE SETUP menu includes:
GAMMA (Component video output only):
Changing GAMMA affects the intensity of the picture
non-linearly. A positive value brings out low level detail
in dark scenes, while a negative value emphasizes
contrast. The range of settings is ±7 and the default is 0.
CHROMA DELAY (Component video output only):
The chroma (colour) and luminance (brightness) signals
are not always perfectly synchronized. The Chroma
Delay setting allows you to adjust the advance delay of
the chroma signal to yield a perfectly clear picture. The
range of settings is ±3 and the default is 0.
PSCAN FORMAT (HDMI only):
This function sets
the aspect ratio of screen images. It is only available for
the HDMI video output.
SUPERWIDE:
Select this for display of 4:3 image
on a 16:9 screen with non-linear stretching (centre
portion of screen is stretched less than the sides).

USE OF MX-700 REMOTE (as supplied with MXD4000/7000 etc.)
Current Myryad digital preamp processors (models MXD4000 and MXD7000) are supplied with the Home Theater
Master MX-700 Remote Control handset from Universal Remote Control Inc. (www.universalremote.com). They have
their DVD page programmed (using “MX700 – Myryad Rev 1.mxf”) to control older Myryad DVD players, as described in
the processors’ Owner’s Manuals.
Most of the DVD page commands on these MX-700s will work correctly with the MXV4000, but there are a few small
differences between the MXV4000’s remote commands and those for previous Myryad DVD players, so some of the
commands will have different functions when controlling the MXV4000. There are four such commands – and some
others are not used by the MXV4000:
Command name in old MX-700

CARE AND HANDLING OF DISCS
•
•
•
•
•
Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s signal surface (shiny side) with a soft cloth. Wipe in a
straight motion from the inside to the outside of the disc. Small dust particles and light stains should have absolutely
no effect on reproduction quality.
Never use chemicals such as record sprays or fluid, benzene or other solvents to clean CDs. Such chemicals will
irreparably damage the disc’s plastic surface.
Each disc should be returned to its case after use to avoid serious scratches that could cause the laser pickup to
skip.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high humidity or high temperatures for extended periods. Long exposure to
high temperatures can warp the disc
Do not stick paper or write anything with a ball-point pen on the disc surface.

APPENDIX 2
Glossary
Analogue: Audio (or video) that has not been turned
into numbers. Analogue sound is continuously variable,
while digital sound has specific numerical values.
Analogue audio needs a separate jack for each channel,
whereas digital can carry multi-channel audio in a
“bitstream” via a single jack.
Aspect ratio:
The ratio of vertical and horizontal
dimensions of a displayed image. The horizontal vs.
vertical ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, and that of
widescreens is 16:9.
Bit Rate: The amount of data used to hold a given
length of music; measured in kilobits per second, or
kbps. Generally, the higher the bit rate, the better the
sound quality. However, higher bit rates use more space
on a disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD that are smaller than titles. A title is composed of
several chapters. Each chapter is assigned a chapter
number enabling you to locate the chapter you want.
Component Video Out Jacks:
Jacks on the back of
the DVD System that send high-quality analogue video
to a TV that has Component Video In jacks. The jacks
are designated Y, Pb and Pr (or sometimes Y/Cb/Cr or
Y/U/V).
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for allowing
selection of images, sounds, subtitles, multi-angles, etc.
recorded on a DVD.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into numerical
values. Digital sound is available when you use the
Digital Audio Coaxial, Optical or HDMI output
connectors. All can carry multi-channel audio.
DivX 3.11/4x/5x: The DivX code is an MPEG-4 based
video compression technology, developed by DivX
Networks, Inc., that can shrink digital video data to sizes
small enough to be transported over the internet, while
maintaining high visual quality.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system developed
by Dolby Laboratories containing up to six channels of
digital audio (front left and right, surround left and right,
center and subwoofer).
DTS: Digital Theatre Systems. This is another surround
sound system, but it is different from Dolby Digital. The
formats were developed by different companies.
JPEG:
A very common digital still picture format. A
still-picture data compression system proposed by the
Joint Photographic Expert Group, which features small
decrease in image quality in spite of its high
compression ratio.
HDCP: (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)
HDCP is a technology used with DVI and HDMI to
prevent unauthorized duplication of digital video and
audio content. HDCP compliance is required on all HDMI
equipment and is an option with DVI equipment. Your TV
must have HDCP or you will not be able to use the
MXV4000’s HDMI output.
LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation):
A system for converting analog sound signal to digital
signal for later processing, with no data compression
used in conversion.
MP3: A file format with a sound data compression
system. “MP3” is the abbreviation of Motion Picture
Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. By using
MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contain about 10
times as much data as a regular CD.
Parental Control: A function of the DVD to limit
playback of a disc by the age of the users according to
the limitation level in each country. The limitation varies
from disc to disc; when it is activated, playback will be
prohibited if the software’s level is higher than the userset level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): See LPCM. In the
context of DVDs and CDs, all PCM is linear.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a
Video CD or SVCD that supports PBC, you can enjoy
interactive-type software as well as software having a
search function.
Progressive Scan: Displays all the horizontal lines of a
picture at one time, as a signal frame. The MXV4000
can convert the interlaced video from DVD into
progressive format for connection to a progressive
display. It dramatically increases the apparent vertical
resolution.
Region code:
A system for allowing discs to be
played back only in a specific designated geographical
region. This player will only play discs that have
compatible region codes. You can find the region code
of your player printed or labelled on the rear panel.
Some discs are compatible with more than one region
(or ALL regions).
S-video: (Separated video)
Produces a clear picture
by sending separate signals for the luminance
(light/dark) and the chrominance (colour) information.
Super Audio CD (SACD): This audio format is based
upon the current CD standards but includes a greater
amount of information that provides higher quality sound.
There are three types of discs: single layer, double layer
and hybrid discs. The hybrid disc contains both standard
audio CD and Super Audio CD information.
Surround: A system for creating a realistic three
dimensional sound field by arranging multiple speakers
around the listener.
Title: The longest section of a picture or music feature
on DVD, music, etc., in video software, or the entire
album in audio software. Each title is assigned a title
number enabling you to locate the title you want.
