Terms

Aspect Ratio

This is the width-to-height ratio of a TV screen. A regular display has an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide-screen displays have an aspect ratio of 16:9, providing a bigger picture for exceptional presence and atmosphere.

Chapter

DVD titles are in turn divided into chapters which are numbered in the same way as the chapters of a book. With DVDs featuring chapters, you can quickly find a desired scene with Chapter Search.

Dolby Digital 1

Dolby Digital provides multi-channel audio from up to 5.1 independent channels. This system is the same as the Dolby Digital surround sound system used in theaters.

To enjoy Dolby Digital entertainment, you must connect this unit’s optical digital output jacks to the optical digital input jacks of a Dolby Digital compatible amp.

DTS

This stands for Digital Theater Systems. DTS is a surround system delivering multi-channel audio from up to 6 independent sources.

To enjoy discs featuring DTS audio recording, you must connect this unit’s optical digital output jacks to the optical digital input jacks of a DTS compatible amp or decoder.

Linear PCM (LPCM)

This stands for Linear Pulse Code Modulation, which is the signal recording system used for music CDs. Compared to music CDs, which feature 44.1 kHz/16-bit recordings, DVDs feature 48 kHz/16-bit – 96 kHz/24-bit recordings. The result is sound quality even higher than that provided by music CDs.

MPEG

This stands for Moving Pictures Experts Group, and is an international video image compression standard. Some DVDs feature digital audio compressed and recorded using this system.

Multi-Angle

With regular TV programs, although multiple cameras are used to simultaneously shoot scenes, only images from one camera at a time are transmitted to your TV. Some DVDs feature scenes shot from multiple angles, letting you choose your viewing angle as desired.

Multi-Audio (Multilingual Dialog)

Some DVDs feature dialog recorded in multiple languages. Dialog in up to 8 languages can be recorded on a single disc, letting you choose as desired.

Multi-Subtitle

Subtitles in up to 32 languages can be recorded on a single DVD, letting you choose as desired.

Optical Digital Output

By transmitting the audio signal as a digital signal, it’s possible to minimize any loss of sound quality. Optical digital output refers to the transmission (output) of a digital audio signal via optical cable. (The amp or other component on the reception side must have optical digital inputs.)

Parental Lock

Some DVDs with violent or adult-oriented scenes feature parental lock which prevents children from viewing such scenes. With this kind of disc, if you set this unit’s parental lock level, playback of scenes inappropriate for children will not be possible, or these scenes will be skipped.

Playback Control (PBC)

This is a playback control signal recorded on Video CDs (Version 2.0). Using menu displays provided by Video CDs with PBC lets you enjoy playback of simple interactive software and software with search functions. You can also enjoy viewing highand standard-resolution still images.

Region Number

DVD players and DVD discs feature region numbers indicating the area in which they were purchased. Playback of a DVD is not possible unless it features the same region number as the DVD player. This unit’s region number is displayed on the rear of the unit.

Title

DVDs have a high data capacity, enabling recording of multiple movies on a single disc. If, for example, one disc contains three separate movies, they are divided into Title 1, Title 2 and Title 3. This lets you enjoy the convenience of Title Search and other functions.

Installation

Installation

Connecting the Units

Note:

This unit is for vehicles with a 12-volt battery and negative grounding. Before installing it in a recreational vehicle, truck, or bus, check the battery voltage.

To avoid shorts in the electrical system, be sure to disconnect the · battery cable before beginning installation.

Refer to each product’s manual for details on connecting the power amp and other units, then make connections correctly.

Secure the wiring with cable clamps or adhesive tape. To protect the wiring, wrap adhesive tape around them where they lie against metal parts.

Route and secure all wiring so it cannot touch any moving parts, such as the gear shift, handbrake and seat rails. Do not route wiring in places that get hot, such as near the heater outlet. If the insulation of the wiring melts or gets torn, there is a danger of the wiring shortcircuiting to the vehicle body.

Don’t pass the yellow lead through a hole into the engine compartment to connect to the battery. This will damage the lead insulation and cause a very dangerous short.

Do not shorten any leads. If you do, the protection circuit may fail to work when it should.

Never feed power to other equipment by cutting the insulation of the power supply lead of the unit and tapping into the lead. The current capacity of the lead will be exceeded, causing overheating.

When replacing fuse, be sure to use only fuse of the rating prescribed on the fuse holder.

If the RCA pin jack on the unit will not be used, do not remove the caps attached to the end of the connector.

To prevent incorrect connection, the input side of the IP-BUS or optical cable connector is blue, and the output side is black. Connect the connectors of the same colors correctly.

If this unit is installed in a vehicle that does not have an ACC (accessory) position on the ignition switch, the red lead of the unit should be connected to a terminal coupled with ignition switch ON/OFF operations. If this is not done, the vehicle battery may be drained when you are away from the vehicle for several hours.

Installation

Note:

Before finally installing the unit, connect the wiring temporarily, making sure it is all connected up properly, and the unit and the system work properly.

Use only the parts included with the unit to ensure proper installation. The use of unauthorized parts can cause malfunctions.

Consult with your nearest dealer if installation requires the drilling of holes or other modifications of the vehicle.

Install the unit where it does not get in the driver’s way and cannot injure the passenger if there is a sudden stop, like an emergency stop.

When mounting this unit, make sure none of the leads are trapped between this unit and the surrounding metalwork or fittings.

Do not mount this unit near the heater outlet, where it would be affected by heat, or near the doors, where rainwater might splash onto it.

Before drilling any mounting holes always check behind where you want to drill the holes. Do not drill into the gas line, brake line, electrical wiring or other important parts.

If this unit is installed in the passenger compartment, anchor it securely so it does not break free while the car is moving, and cause injury or an accident.

If this unit is installed under a front seat, make sure it does not obstruct seat movement. Route all leads and cords carefully around the sliding mechanism so they do not get caught or pinched in the mechanism and cause a short circuit.

Do not mount this unit on the spare tire board or any other unstable place.

Do not mount this unit anywhere that gets the sun and so becomes hot, like on the dashboard or the rear shelf.

Mount this unit on a flat surface.

Installations in other than the horizontal or vertical positions indicated will prevent this product from performing correctly or could cause malfunction.

MODE Switch Setting
