To power outlet

The setup described here is a basic setup that allows you to play discs using just the cables supplied with the player. In this setup, stereo audio is played through your TV.

This player is equipped with copy protection technology. Do not connect this player to your TV via a VCR using AV cables, as the picture from this player will not appear properly on your TV. (This player may also not be compatible with some combination TV/VCRs for the same reason; refer to the manufacturer for more information.)

1 Connect the VIDEO OUT (1) and AUDIO OUT (2ch) jacks to a set of A/V inputs on your TV.

Use the supplied red/white stereo audio and yellow video cable. Make sure you match up the left and right audio outputs with their corresponding inputs for correct stereo sound.

See the next page if you want to use an S-Video, component or a D video connection.

If you need another pair of stereo outputs (and don’t need to use the multichannel analog outputs), you can use the AUDIO OUT (5.1ch) FRONT

L / R jacks (page 15).

2 Connect the supplied AC power cord to the AC IN inlet, then plug into a power outlet.

Before unplugging the player from the power outlet, make sure you first switch it into standby using either the front

panel STANDBY/ON button, or the remote control, and wait of the -OFF- message to disappear from the player’s display.

For the above reasons, do not plug this

player into a switched power supply

 

found on some amplifiers and AV

 

receivers.

02 Connecting Up

Using other types of video output

This player has standard (composite), S-Video and component video outputs (the DV-655A (Taiwan model) has a D video connector for component video). The main difference between them is the quality of the picture.

S-Video delivers a better picture than standard composite video, while component video gives better picture quality still. The variety of outputs also gives you the flexibility of connecting your particular equipment using the best connection type available.

Connecting using an S-Video output

You can use the S-Video output instead of the VIDEO OUT jack to connect this player to your TV (or other equipment).

1 Use an S-Video cable (not supplied) to connect the S-VIDEO OUTPUT to an S-Video input on your TV, monitor or AV receiver.

Line up the small triangle above the jack with the same mark on the plug before plugging in.

DV-655A Taiwan model

Connecting Up

Only NTSC video is output when set to progressive scan.

This player is compatible with D1, D2, D3 and D4 input jacks, however, when connected to a D1 jack, only interlace video is output.

If you connect both one or both of the S-video jacks, and the D video connector, and one of the connected components is not S1/S2 compatible, the automatic aspect ratio switching will not work with any of the connected components.

Connecting for multichannel surround sound

You can connect this player to your AV receiver using the multichannel analog outputs or one of the digital outputs.

In addition to these connections, you should also connect the 2 channel analog outputs for compatibility with all discs.

You’ll probably also want to connect a video output to your AV receiver. You can use any of the video outputs available on this player (the illustration shows a standard (composite) connection).

Connecting using the multichannel analog outputs

If your AV receiver has 5.1 channel analog inputs, we recommend connecting this player to it using the multichannel analog outputs. Doing this will ensure that you can enjoy all kinds of disc, including Dolby Digital and DTS DVD-Video discs, as well as high sampling rate and multichannel DVDAudio and (for DV-655A) SACD discs.

02

1 Connect the MULTICHANNEL AUDIO outputs on this player to the multichannel audio inputs on your AV receiver.

It’s convenient to use three stereo audio cables; one for the FRONT, one for the SURROUND and one for the CENTER and

SUBWOOFER channels.

My TV doesn’t have any inputs to connect the DVD player. How can I watch DVDs?

Unfortunately, if your TV has no inputs you can’t use this player with it.

My VCR is already connected to my TV, so there aren’t any spare inputs. What should I do?

If all your TV’s inputs are already in use, you can buy a video input selector from an electronics store, which effectively gives you more inputs.

My TV only has one input for the sound. What should I plug it into?

If you don’t mind mono sound, you can buy a stereo RCA-to-mono RCA cable from an electronics store. Connect the stereo end to this player and the mono end to your TV.

If you want stereo sound, connect this player to your amplifier or stereo system using a stereo audio cable.

I connected the DVD player to my AV receiver, and although the sound is fine, there’s no picture. What did I do wrong?

Make sure that the type of video connection from the DVD player to your AV receiver is the same as that from the receiver to your TV. Most AV receivers won’t convert from one kind of connection to another.

About progressive scan video

Compared to interlace video, progressive scan video effectively doubles the scanning rate of the picture, resulting in a very stable, flicker-free image.

Progressive scan video is available only from the component video output. Use the PROGRESSIVE button on the front panel to switch the component video output between interlace and progressive. With a DVD-Video disc you can do this during playback, or when the disc is stopped. For other types of disc, the player must be stopped.

If you connect a TV that is not compatible with a progressive scan signal and switch the player to progressive, you will not be able to see any picture at all. In this case, press the PROGRESSIVE button on the front panel to swich back to interlace (the PROGRESSIVE indicator should be unlit).

When set to progressive, there is no video output from the VIDEO and S-VIDEO jacks. If you want to display video on more than one monitor simultaneously, make sure that the video output is set to interlace.

Some TVs display 4:3 material incorrectly in progressive scan mode. This player has an Auto Progressive setting to correct this problem. See page 53 for more information (DV-656A only).

You can’t switch the video output when an OSD is on-screen.

The picture on some TVs may momentarily break up when you switch the video output of this player.

03
