The video signals are divided into color (C) and brightness (Y) signals, achieving a clearer picture.

If the TV is equipped with a S-Video input connector, we recommend connecting it to the this product’s S-Video output connector using a commercially available S-Video connection cord.

HOW TO CONNECT TO A TV WITHOUT AUDIO/VIDEO INPUT JACKS

If your TV does not have RCA type audio and video input jacks it is still possible to connect this DVD

player to your TV’s 75-ohm coaxial antenna terminal using an optional Stereo Audio/Video RF Modulator, not included. Connect the audio and video outputs of the DVD player to the audio and video inputs on the RF Modulator, and then connect the coaxial output of the RF Modulator (usually marked “TO TV”) to the 75 ohm coaxial antenna terminal on your TV. Follow the instruction supplied with the RF Modulator for more details.

If your TV’s 75 ohm coaxial antenna terminal is already occupied by an antenna or cable box connection, remove that cable from your TV’s antenna terminal and reconnect it to the coaxial antenna input terminal of the RF Modulator (usually marked “ANT IN”), then connect the RF modulator to your TV’s antenna

terminal as described above.

NOTE

The picture quality from DVD discs will not be as good if the DVD player is connected to the TV’s antenna terminal through an RF Modulator.

Files whose extension is other than “.mp3 (MP3)”, “.jpg (JPG)”, “.jpeg (JPEG)” and “.wma (WMA)” will not be listed in the MP3, JPEG, or WMA menu.

If the file is not recorded in MP3, JPEG or WMA format, noise may be produced even if the file extension is either of “.mp3 (MP3)”, “.jpg (JPG)”, “.jpeg (JPEG)” and “.wma (WMA)”.

PLAYING A DISC

When a disc with MP3,JPEG or WMA files is inserted in the DVD player, the track menu will appear on the TV screen, and number of tracks is displayed on the front panel.

1 Place the disc in the tray with the label facing up.

For discs on which MP3, JPEG or WMA tracks are recorded:

An MP3, JPEG or WMA track menu screen appears.

A symbol of “ ” is shown on the top of the group name.

A symbol of “ ” is shown on the top of MP3 files.

A symbol of “” is shown on the top of JPEG files.

A symbol of “” is shown on the top of WMA files.

If the picture extends beyond the scope of screen, a down arrow “L” appears, indicating that the user can view another part of the picture on the next page. If an up arrow “K” appears, it indicates that the user can view another part on the previous page. The current page number and the number of total pages are shown on the right of the down arrow “L”.

The system can recognize up to 255 groups (or folders) and up to 256 tracks. (This applies to the case where mixed MP3, JPEG and WMA files are recorded.)

If no MP3, JPEG or WMA files are found in the group, the group is not displayed.

The DVD player can reproduce data recorded as per ISO 9660 Level 1, Level 2 or Joliet on the disc.

It can also run a disk on which data is recorded in a multisession.

For more details of recording systems, see the instruction manual for the CD-R / CD-RW drive or the writing software.
