technology that produces minimal distortion in the center of the picture.
TrueTheater Stretch feature is only available in full screen mode and is for DVD

Note: * this feature is not available in some versions of CyberLink PowerDVD.
This feature is disabled during the playback of Blu-ray Disc titles when DxVA is in

The Smart Stretch option (which is recommended for most videos) crops and
stretches the sides of the picture slightly, while keeping the center as is.
The Stretch to Screen option keeps the center of the picture as is, while
stretching the sides slightly.
The Smart for 2.35:1 option is for disc titles that have an aspect ratio of 2.35:1.
This setting is specifically designed to maximize the display space of
widescreen (16:9 or 16:10) display devices when viewing discs with this aspect
ratio.
The Custom Stretch option lets you customize the aspect ratio of your
outputted video. Use the Strength slider to customize the curve of the
stretched video. The Crop size slider lets you set the crop margins on either
side of the video (top and bottom of 4:3 content on a 16:9 display, left and
right of 16:9 content on a 4:3 display). Use the Offset slider to determine the
video's position. Experiment with the sliders until you find a custom stretch
that fits your specific display device.
Audio Settings
The Audio tab lets you optimize the sound for media played in CyberLink
PowerDVD.
Speaker environment
Note: these settings are disabled in versions of CyberLink PowerDVD that use
Dolby PCEE to optimize sound for media playback.
Depending on your sound card and/or number of speakers, select the speaker
environment that matches the number of speakers you have:
Headphone is mainly for notebook users who listen to their audio output on
101
CyberLink Po w erDVD
headphones.
2 Speaker is the selection for most users playing discs on their desktop/laptop
who only have 2 speakers or a sound card that only outputs two channels.
The 4 Speaker selection is for computers equipped with sound cards that
support 4-ch output.
The 6 Speaker selection (a.k.a. 5.1 channels) is for computers equipped with
sound cards that support 6-ch output and is optimal for DVD Video titles that
feature multichannels encoding such as Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1.
The 7 Speaker and 8 Speaker options are available for users who have
multiple speakers and wish to output audio to each of them.
The Use S/PDIF option is an advanced technological Digital InterFace, as
opposed to transferring signals via conventional analog interfaces, designed
by the Sony and Philips corporations. To enjoy true 6 speaker output quality,
you must have an external Dolby Digital or DTS decoder along with a S/PDIFcompliant sound card to make this selection available.
Note: when the S/PDIF audio output is enabled and the output stream is not PCM,
the volume control for CyberLink PowerDVD is disabled because your decoder
assumes the task.
The HDMI output selection is for users who have their audio connected with
an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
Note: HDMI output is not available under Windows XP.
Output mode
This option lets you select the special processing that is used on the audio signal.
Experiment with the available settings to decide which you prefer.
Note: the selections that are available in the Output mode drop down menu are
dependent on the selection made in Speaker Environment and the configuration of
your computer.
The major difference between Dolby Surround* Compatible Downmix and
Stereo is that Dolby Surround uses the Dolby Surround downmixing
algorithm and the possibility exists of connecting an analogue Pro Logic
decoder to the sound card so as to enable 4-ch surround sound (left, right,
center, surround) for Dolby Surround. Otherwise, both are relatively similar in
2-channel output.
Dolby Headphone* is a post-processing effect designed to create a virtual
102
Po w erDVD Settings
surround sound experience particularly for a headphone environment, but is
suitable also for both notebook and desktop environments. For more
information, see Dolby Headphone.
The TrueTheater Surround* (CyberLink Headphone) option uses technology
developed by CyberLink to improve the quality of audio output from a
notebook over headphones. The Advanced options simulate the very different
experiences of listening to sound in a living room, a small theater or a large
stadium. For more information, see TrueTheater Surround (Headphone Mode)

The Dolby Virtual Speaker* option allows you to experience virtual surround
sound through 2 speakers. For more information, see Dolby Virtual Speaker.
TrueTheater Surround* (CyberLink Virtual Speaker): is a virtual surround

Surround (Virtual Speaker Mode) - Optional.
TrueTheater Surround* (CyberLink Multi-channel Environment Impression
technology 2): is an audio channel expansion technology developed by
CyberLink that converts a stereo audio sound and outputs to multiple
channels (converts a 2 channel source to 4, 6, 7, or 8 speakers or a 6 channel
source to 7 or 8 speakers). For more information, see TrueTheater Surround.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx*: has three options. For more information, see Dolby Pro
Logic IIx (Optional).
Note: * this feature is not available in some versions of CyberLink PowerDVD.
S/PDIF Output Modes
The following output modes are available during the playback of Blu-ray Disc titles
when S/PDIF is selected as the speaker environment. The mode that you should
select depends on the external decoder (AV Receiver) connected to your computer.
Only primary audio: this mode only outputs the audio from the primary video
(e.g. no sound will be available for Picture-in-Picture, secondary video streams
or director commentaries). The compressed audio format is passed-through
to the external decoder unit (AV Receiver).
Note: if the primary audio format is another format besides Dolby Digital, DD+,
DTS or DTS-HD, CyberLink PowerDVD will decode it and output both audio
signals simultaneously.
Dolby Digital* mixing: this mode outputs both primary video sound and
103
CyberLink Po w erDVD
secondary video sound simultaneously by mixing both audio and encodes
into a Dolby Digital bitstream. Select this option if your external decoder unit
(AV Receiver) supports Dolby Digital.
DTS* mixing: this mode outputs both primary video sound and secondary
video sound simultaneously by mixing both audio and encodes into a DTS
bitstream. Select this option if your external decoder unit (AV Receiver)
supports DTS.
Note: * this feature is not available in some versions of CyberLink PowerDVD.
HDMI Output Modes
The following output modes are available when an external decoder (AV Receiver) is
connected with an HDMI connector under Windows 7 or Vista. The mode that you
should select depends on the external decoder (AV Receiver) connected to your
computer.
PCM decoded by PowerDVD: this mode creates a digital representation of an
analog signal. Select this option if your external decoder (AV receiver) does
not support Dolby Digital or DTS to produce a digital sounding output for
your audio.
Non-decoded Dolby Digital/DTS audio to external device: this mode passes
compressed audio through to your external decoder (AV receiver). Select this
option if your amplifier/receiver supports Dolby Digital or DTS to enable either
during playback, when available.
Non-decoded high-definition audio to external device (HDMI 1.3 only): this
mode passes lossless audio through to your external decoder (AV receiver).
Select this option if your amplifier/receiver supports high definition audio to
enable either during playback, when available.
Advanced Audio Settings
