You are probably used to using stereo equipment to listen to music, but may not be used to home theater systems that give you many more options (such as surround sound) when listening to soundtracks.

Home theater refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to create a surround sound effect, making you feel like you're in the middle of the action or concert. The surround sound you get from a home theater system depends not only on the speakers you have set up in your room, but also on the source and the sound settings of the system.

DVD-Video has become the basic source material for home theater due to its size, quality, and ease of use. Depending on the DVD, you can have up to seven different audio tracks coming from one disc, all of them being sent to different speakers in your system. This is what creates a surround sound effect and gives you the feeling of ‘being there’.

This system will automatically decode Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround DVD-Video discs, according to your speaker setup. In most cases, you won’t have to make changes for realistic surround sound, but other possibilities (like listening to a CD with multichannel surround sound) are explained in

Home theater sound on page 29.

En

Before you start

DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs (Audio CDs and Video CD/Super VCDs) recorded using a DVD recorder, CD recorder or personal computer may not be playable on this system. This may be caused by a number of possibilities, including but not limited to: the type of disc used; the type of recording; damage, dirt or condensation on either the disc or the player’s pick-up lens. See below for notes about particular software and formats.

CD-R/RW compatibility

This system will play CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in CD Audio or Video CD/ Super VCD format, or as a CD-ROM containing MP3, WMA or JPEG files. However, any other content may cause the disc not to play, or create noise/ distortion in the output.

This system cannot record CD-R or CDRW discs.

Unfinalized CD-R/RW discs recorded as CD Audio can be played, but the full Table of Contents (playing time, etc.) will not be displayed.

PC-created disc compatibility

If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a “compatible format” as listed above, there will be cases in which the disc may not be playable in this machine due to the setting of the application software used to create the disc. In these particular instances, check with the software publisher for more detailed information.

Check the DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW software disc boxes for additional compatibility information.

About WMA

DVD-R/RW compatibility

This unit will play DVD-R/RW discs recorded using the DVD-Video format that have been finalized using a DVD-recorder.

This unit will play DVD-RW discs recorded using the Video Recording (VR) format.

DVD-RW shows in the display when a VR format DVD-RW disc is loading.

When playing a VR format DVD-RW discs that was edited on a DVD recorder, the screen may go momentarily black at edited points and/or you may see scenes from immediately before the edited point.

This unit cannot record DVD-R/RW discs.

Unfinalized DVD-R/RW discs cannot be played in this player.

The Windows Media™ logo printed on the box indicates that this player can playback WMA data.

WMA is short for Windows Media Audio and refers to an audio compression technology developed by Microsoft Corporation. WMA data can be encoded by using Windows Media Player version 8 (or less) or Windows Media Player for Windows XP.

Windows Media, and the Windows logo are trademarks, or registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.

Compressed audio compatibility

This unit will play CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs containing files saved in the MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 (MP3) or Windows Media Audio (WMA) format with a sampling rate of 32, 44.1 or 48kHz (except 32 kHz WMA files encoded at 20 kbps). Incompatible files will not play and the message Can’t play this format will be displayed (No Play in the front panel display).

Fixed bit-rate files are recommended. Variable bit-rate (VBR) MP3 files are playable, but playing time may not be shown correctly.

This player is compatible with WMA data encoded using Windows Media Player version 8 (or less) or Windows Media Player for Windows XP.

This player is not compatible with lossless-encoding or variable bit-rate (VBR) WMA files.

WMA files encoded with DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection will not play and the message Can’t play this format will be displayed (No Play in the front panel display).

The CD-ROM used to compile your MP3, WMA must be ISO 9660 Level 1 or 2 compliant. CD physical format: Mode1, Mode2 XA Form1. Romeo and Joliet file systems are both compatible with this player.

Use CD-R or CD-RW media for recording your files. The disc must be finalized (i.e. the session must be closed) in order to play in this unit. This player is not compatible with multi-session discs. Only the first session of a multi-session disc will be recognized.

This player only plays tracks that are named with the file extension .mp3,

.MP3, .wma, or .WMA.

10

When naming MP3 and WMA files, add the corresponding file name extension (.mp3 or .wma). Files are played according to the file extension. To prevent noise and malfunctions, do not use these extensions for other kinds of files.

This player can recognize up to 999 files (WMA/MP3/JPEG) and up to 499 folders. If a disc exceeds these limits, only files and folders up to these limits will be playable. Files and folders are read/ displayed in alphabetical order. Note that if the file structure is very complex, you may not be able to read/play all files on the disc.

Folder and track names (excluding the file extension) are displayed.

There are many different recording bitrates available to encode MP3 files. This unit was designed to be compatible with all of them. Audio encoded at 128Kbps should sound close to regular CD Audio quality. This player will play lower bit-rate files, but please note that the sound quality becomes noticeably worse at lower bit-rates.

JPEG file compatibility

Baseline JPEG and EXIF 2.1* still image files up to 8 mega-pixels are supported (maximum vertical and horizontal resolution is 5120 pixels). (*File format used by digital still cameras)

The CD-ROM used to compile your JPEG files must be ISO 9660 Level 1 or 2 compliant. CD physical format: Mode1, Mode2 XA Form1. Romeo and Joliet file systems are both compatible with this player.

This player only displays files that are named with the file extension .jpg or

.JPG.

Using the Room Setup

Before using your system to enjoy surround sound playback, we recommend you spend a few minutes using the Room Setup. This is a quick and easy way to get good surround sound for your room.

Depending on the distance of the surround speakers from your main listening position, choose between S (small), M (medium), or L (large) room, then depending on your seating position relative to the front and surround speakers, choose Fwd (forward), Mid, or

Back.

1If the system isn’t already on, press STANDBY/ON to switch it on.

2Press ROOM SETUP.

If you have previously set up the room type and seating position, the display will show the current room settings.

3Press ENTER.

4Use the / (cursor up/down) buttons to select a room type then press ENTER.

Choose one of the following depending on your room size:

S – Smaller than average room

M – Average room

L – Larger than average room

5Use the / (cursor up/down) buttons to select a seating position setting, then press ENTER.

Choose one of the following depending on where your main listening position is:

Fwd – If you are nearer to the front speakers than the surround speakers

Mid – If you are equal distance from the front and surround speakers

Back – If you are nearer to the surround speakers than the front speakers

The Room Setup automatically sets up both channel level and channel delay. If you have already set the channel levels manually (see Setting the channel levels on page 57), you will see Room Set? in the display when you first press the

ROOM SETUP button.

Using the Room Setup will overwrite any previous settings you had for channel level and channel delay.

20

For a more detailed surround sound setup, see Setting up surround sound on page 55.

Using the on-screen displays

For ease of use, this system makes extensive use of graphical on-screen displays (OSDs). You should get used to the way these work as you’ll need to use them when setting up the system, using some of the playback features, such as program play, and when making more advanced settings for audio and video.

All the screens are navigated in basically the same way, using the cursor buttons ( , ,, ) to change the highlighted item and pressing ENTER to select it.

Throughout this manual, ‘Select’ means use the cursor buttons to highlight an item on-screen, then press ENTER.

Playing discs

The basic playback controls for playing DVD, CD, Video CD/Super VCD and WMA/MP3 discs are covered here. Further functions are detailed in the chapter 5.

1 If the player isn’t already on, press STANDBY/ON to switch it on.

If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD, also turn on your TV and make sure that it is set to the correct video input.

2 Press OPEN/CLOSE to open the disc tray.

3 Load a disc.

Load a disc with the label side facing up, using the disc tray guide to align the disc (if you’re loading a double-sided DVD disc, load it with the side you want to play face down).

4 Press (play) to start playback.

If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD/Super VCD, a menu may appear. See DVD-Video disc menus on page 24 and Video CD/Super VCD PBC menus on page 25 for how to navigate these.

03 Getting started

If you’re playing an WMA/MP3 disc, it may take a few seconds before playback starts, depending on the complexity of the file structure on the disc.

If you loaded a CD/CD-R/RW containing JPEGs, a slideshow will start. See Viewing JPEG discs on page 48 for more on playing these discs.

See also PhotoViewer on page 67 if the disc contains both WMA/MP3 audio files and JPEG picture files.

5 Use the MASTER VOLUME – / + button (or the front panel VOLUME buttons) to adjust the volume.

Basic playback controls

The table below shows the basic controls on the remote for playing discs. You can find other playback features in the chapter 5.

03 Getting started

After I load a DVD disc, it ejects automatically after a few seconds!

Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for your system. The region number should be printed on the disc; check it against the region number of the system (which you can find on the rear panel). See also DVD Video regions on page 75.

If the region number is OK, it may be that the disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc and look for signs of damage. See also Using and taking care of discs on page 74.

Why won’t the disc I loaded play?

First check that you loaded the disc the right way up (label side up), and that it’s clean and not damaged. See Using and taking care of discs on page 74 for information on cleaning discs.

If a disc loaded correctly won’t play, it’s probably an incompatible format or disc type, such as DVD-Audio or DVD-ROM. See General disc compatibility on page 8 for more on disc compatibility.

I have a widescreen TV so why are there black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when I play some discs?

Some movie formats are such that even when played on a widescreen TV, black bars are necessary at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction.

I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the system to show widescreen DVDs in pan & scan format, so why do I still get black bars top and bottom with some discs?

Some discs override the display preferences of the system, so even if you have 4:3 (Pan & Scan) selected, those discs will still be shown in letterbox format. This is not a malfunction.

DVD-Video disc menus

Many DVD-Video discs contain menus from which you can select what you want to watch. They may give access to additional features, such as subtitle and audio language selection, or special features such as slideshows. See the disc packaging for details.

Sometimes DVD-Video menus are displayed automatically when you start playback; others only appear when you press DVD MENU or

TOP MENU.

Select Auto above to switch back to auto-

stereo mode (the stereo indicator () lights when receiving a stereo broadcast).

Introduction

Most of the features described in this chapter make use of on-screen displays. For an explanation of how to navigate these, see Using the on-screen displays on page 20.

Many of the functions covered in this chapter apply to DVD discs, Video CD/Super VCDs, CDs and WMA/MP3/JPEG discs, although the exact operation of some varies slightly with the kind of disc loaded.

Some DVD discs restrict the use of some functions (random or repeat, for example). This is not a malfunction.

When playing Video CD/Super VCDs, some of the functions are not available during PBC playback. If you want to use them, start the disc playing using a number button to select

atrack.

To access functions printed in green on the remote, move the slider switch from

MAIN to SUB.

Use the Disc Navigator to browse through the contents of a disc to find the part you want to play. You can use the Disc Navigator when a disc is playing or stopped.

1 Press HOME MENU and select ‘Disc Navigator’ from the on-screen display.

Alternatively, if a VR format DVD-RW, CD, Video CD/Super VCD or WMA/MP3/JPEG disc is loaded, you can press DVD MENU, which takes you straight to the Disc Navigator screen.

An introduction to RDS

Radio Data System, or RDS as it’s usually known, is a system used by FM radio stations to provide listeners with various kinds of information—the name of the station and the kind of show they’re broadcasting, for example. This information shows up as text on the display, and you can switch between the kind of information shown. Although you don’t get RDS information from all FM radio stations, you do with most.

Probably the best feature of RDS is that you can search automatically by type of program. So, if you felt like listening to jazz, you could search for a station that’s broadcasting a show with the program type, Jazz. There are around 30 such program types, including various genres of music, news, sport, talk shows, financial information, and so on.

The receiver lets you display three different kinds of RDS information: Radio Text, Program Service Name, and Program Type.

Radio Text (RT) is messages sent by the radio station. These can be anything the broadcaster chooses—a talk radio station might give out it telephone number as RT, for example.

Program Service Name (PS) is the name of the radio station.

Program Type (PTY) indicates the kind of program currently being broadcast.

The receiver can search for and display the following program types:

News – News

Affairs – Current affairs

Info – General information

50

Sport – Sport

Educate – Educational material

Drama – Radio plays or serials

Culture – National or regional culture, theatre, etc.

Science – Science and technology

Varied – Usually talk-based material, such as quiz shows or interviews.

Pop M – Pop music

Rock M – Rock music

Easy M – Easy listening music

Light M – ‘Light’ classical music

Classics – ‘Serious’ classical music

Other M – Other music not fitting any of the above categories

Weather – Weather reports

Finance – Stock market reports, commerce, trading, etc.

Children – Programs for children

Social – Social affairs

Religion – Programs concerning religion

Phone In – Public expressing their views by phone

Travel – Holiday-type travel rather than traffic announcements

Leisure – Leisure interests and hobbies

Jazz – Jazz

Country – Country music

Nation M – Popular music in a language other than English

Oldies – Popular music from the ’50s and ’60s

En

More tuner features: RDS

Folk M – Folk music

Document – Documentaries

In addition, there are three other program types, TEST, Alarm!, and None. Alarm! and

TEST are used for emergency announcements. You can’t search for these, but the tuner will switch automatically to this RDS broadcast signal. None appears when a program type cannot be found.

Displaying RDS information

Use the DISPLAY button to display the different types of RDS information available (RT, PS and PTY).

• Press DISPLAY to select the RDS information display.

Each press changes the display as follows:

RT – Radio Text display

PS – Program Service display

PTY – Program Type display

PTY SEARCH – see Searching for RDS programs below

Current tuner frequency

If any noise is picked up while displaying the RT scroll, some characters may be displayed incorrectly.

If you see No Data in the RT display, it means no RT data is transmitted from the broadcast station. If you have entered a name for the station, it is broadcast instead of RT data. If you haven’t, the display will automatically switch to the PS data display. If no PS data is transmitted from the station, the frequency will be displayed.

07

• In the PTY display, there are cases where

 

English

No Data or None is shown. If this

 

happens, the PS display is shown after a

 

 

 

few seconds.

 

 

Searching for RDS programs

 

 

 

 

One of the most useful features of RDS is the

 

 

ability to search for a particular kind of radio

Italiano

program. You can search for any of the

 

program types listed on the previous page.

 

1 Press the TUNER button to select the

 

FM band.

 

RDS is only possible in the FM band.

Français

2 Press DISPLAY repeatedly until PTY

SEARCH appears in the display.

 

3 Use / (cursor left/right) to select

 

the program type you want to hear.

 

4 Press ENTER to search for the program

 

type.

 

The system starts searching through the

Deutsch

station presets for a match. When it finds one,

 

the search stops and the station plays for five

 

seconds.

 

5 If you want to keep listening to the

 

station, press ENTER within the 5 seconds.

Nederlands

If you don’t press ENTER, searching resumes.

Dynamic Range Control

Specifies the amount of dynamic range adjustment to Dolby Digital or DTS soundtracks:

DRC Off – No dynamic range adjustment (use when listening at higher volume)

DRC Mid – Mid setting

DRC High – Dynamic range is reduced (loud sounds are reduced in volume while quieter sounds are increased)

This setting works only with Dolby Digital and some DTS soundtracks. For other sources you can create a similar effect using the Midnight mode (see Using Quiet and Midnight listening modes on page 33).

Dual mono setting

Specifies how dual mono encoded Dolby Digital or DTS soundtracks should be played. You can also use this setting to switch the audio channel on DVD-RW discs recorded with two separate soundtracks.

Ch1 Mono – Only channel 1 is played

Ch2 Mono – Only channel 2 is played

56

On the Ch1 Mono and Ch2 Mono settings the sound comes only from the center speaker (or from the front speakers if listening in STEREO mode).

This setting works only with dual mono encoded Dolby Digital or DTS soundtracks. See the disc packaging for channel information.

LFE attenuator setting

Dolby Digital and DTS audio sources include ultra-low bass tones. Set the LFE attenuator as needed to prevent the ultra-low bass from distorting the sound.

LFE ATT 0 – The LFE channel is played with no attenuation

LFE ATT 10 – LFE channel is attenuated by 10dB

LFE OFF – LFE channel is not played

En

Surround sound setup

Setting the channel levels

You can set the relative channel levels from your main listening position for each listening mode, including all the Surround and Advanced Surround modes.

If you used the Room Setup feature (page 19), the channel levels for each listening mode will already be set. However, you can still finetune the levels here if you need to.

If you have a widescreen TV, select the 16:9 (Wide) setting—widescreen DVD software is then shown using the full screen area. When playing software recorded in conventional (4:3) format, the settings on your TV will determine how the material is presented— see the manual that came with your TV for details on what options are available.

If you have a conventional TV, select either 4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan & Scan). In Letter Box mode, widescreen software is shown with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Pan & Scan chops the sides off widescreen material to make it fit the 4:3 screen (so even though the image looks larger on the screen, you’re actually seeing less of the picture).

If you have a progressive-scan compatible TV, set this to Progressive for flicker-free video output. If your TV is not compatible with progressive-scan video, set to Interlace. Check the operating instructions that came with your TV if you’re unsure about its compatibility.

When setting to Progressive, you have to press ENTER once more to confirm (or RETURN to cancel). See also below for important information on progressive scan video.

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.

When TV format is set to AUTO or NTSC only: When Component Out (above) is 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 it is set to Interlace. See also Setting the TV format on page 73.

If you connect a TV that is not compatible with a progressive scan signal and switch the system to progressive, you will not be able to see any picture at all. In this case,

press STANDBY/ON to put the system in standby, then press and hold the front panel (stop) button for about 8 seconds until the display shows Mem.Clr.?. Press the front panel VOLUME – (DOWN) or + (UP) button so that the display shows Interlace?. Press the front panel

button to set to interlace and switch the system back on.

Some DVD-Video discs feature a Parental Lock level. If the player is set to a lower level than the disc, the disc won’t play. This gives you some control about what your children watch on your DVD system.

Some discs also support the Country code feature. The player does not play certain scenes on these discs, depending on the Country code you set.

Before you can set the Parental Lock level or the Country code you must register a password. As the password owner, you can change the Parental Lock level or Country code whenever you like. You can also change the password.

Watching NTSC on a PAL TV (MOD. PAL)

Most models of the newly developed countdown PAL TV system detect 50 Hz (PAL)/60 Hz (NTSC) and automatically switch vertical amplitude, resulting in a display without vertical shrinkage. However, in some cases, the image may appear without color.

If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you may not be able to watch NTSC discs because of picture roll. If the TV has a V-Hold control, adjust it until the picture stops rolling.

On some TVs, the picture may shrink vertically, leaving black bands at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction; it is caused by the NTSC to PAL conversion.

DVD Video regions

All DVD Video discs carry a region mark on the case somewhere that indicates which region(s) of the world the disc is compatible with. Your DVD system also has a region mark, which you can find on the rear panel. Discs from incompatible regions will not play in this player. Discs marked ALL will play in any player.

The diagram below shows the various DVD regions of the world.

Handling discs

When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge.

Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable.

Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown in the diagram below.

Wipe lightly from the center of the disc using straight strokes.

Don’t wipe the disc surface using circular strokes.

If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.

Storing discs

Although CDs and DVD discs are more durable than vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight).

13 Additional information

Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharptipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc.

For more detailed care information see the instructions that come with discs.

Do not load more than one disc into the player at a time.

Discs to avoid

Discs spin at high speed inside the player. If you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged, don't risk using it in your player—you could end up damaging the unit.

This unit is designed for use with conventional, fully circular discs only. Use of shaped discs is not recommended for this product. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped discs.

Proper installation and maintenance of this system

Hints on installation

We want you to enjoy using this system for years to come, so please bear in mind the following points when choosing a suitable location for it:

Do...

Use in a well-ventilated room.

76

Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as a table, shelf or stereo rack.

Don’t...

Use in a place exposed to high temperatures or humidity, including near radiators and other heat-generating appliances.

Place on a window sill or other place where the system will be exposed to direct sunlight.

Use in an excessively dusty or damp environment.

Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other component in your stereo system that becomes hot in use.

Use near a television or monitor as you may experience interference—especially if the television uses an indoor antenna.

Use in a kitchen or other room where the system may be exposed to smoke or steam.

Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth—this may prevent proper cooling of the system.

Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large enough to support all four of the unit’s feet.

Cleaning the pickup lens

The DVD player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized service center. Although lens cleaners are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens.

Additional information

Problems with condensation

Condensation may form inside the player if it is brought into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room rises quickly.

Although the condensation won’t damage the player, it may temporarily impair its performance. For this reason you should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on and using.

Moving the system unit

If you need to move the main unit, first remove a disc if there’s one in the player, then press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn

the system off. Wait for Good Bye to disappear from the display, then unplug the power cable. Never lift or move the unit during playback—discs rotate at a high speed and may be damaged.

Unplugging the unit before Good Bye disappears from the display may cause the system to return to the factory settings.

Power cord caution

Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a short circuit or an electric shock. Do not place this unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed such that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock.

Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

Screen sizes and disc formats

DVD-Video discs come in several different screen aspects, ranging from TV programs, which are generally 4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an aspect ratio of up to about 7:3.

Televisions also come in different aspect ratios; ‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.

Widescreen TV users

If you have a widescreen TV, the TV Screen setting (page 60) of this system should be set to 16:9 (Wide).

When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format, you can use the TV controls to select how the picture is presented. Your TV may offer various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions that came with your TV for details.

Please note that some movie aspect ratios are wider than 16:9, so even though you have a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in a ‘letterbox’ style with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.

Standard TV users

If you have a standard TV, the TV Screen setting (page 60) of this system should be set to 4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan&Scan), depending on which you prefer.

Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen discs are shown with black bars top and bottom.

Set to 4:3 (Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are shown with the left and right sides cropped. Although the picture looks larger, you don’t actually see the whole picture.

Please note that many widescreen discs override the system’s settings so that the disc is shown in letterbox format regardless of the setting.

Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or either of the 4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in a distorted picture.

Selecting languages using the language code list

Some of the language options (see Language settings on page 62) allow you to set your prefered language from any of the 136 languages listed in the Language code list on page 83.

1Select ‘Other Language’.

2Use the / (cursor left/right) buttons to select either a code letter or a code number.

3Use the / (cursor up/down) buttons to select a code letter or a code number.

Glossary

Analog audio

An electrical signal that directly represents sound. Compare this to digital audio which can be an electrical signal, but is an indirect representation of sound. See also Digital audio.

Aspect ratio

The width of a TV screen relative to its height. Conventional TVs are 4:3 (in other words, the screen is almost square); widescreen models are 16:9 (the screen is almost twice as wide as it is high).

Digital audio

An indirect representation of sound by numbers. During recording, the sound is measured at discrete intervals (44,100 times a second for CD audio) by an analog-to-digital converter, generating a stream of numbers. On playback, a digital-to-analog converter generates an analog signal based on these numbers. See also Sampling frequency and

Analog audio.

Dolby Digital

1

Using a maximum of 5.1 channels of audio, this high quality surround system is used in many of the finer movie theaters around the world.

The on-screen display shows which channels are active, for example showing 3/2.1. The 3 being the two front channels and the center channel; the 2 being the surround channels, and the .1 being the LFE channel.

86

Dolby Pro Logic / Pro Logic II

A matrix decoding system that extracts 4.1 (Dolby Pro Logic) or 5.1 (Dolby Pro Logic II) channel surround sound from a two channel source.

DRM

DRM (digital rights management) is a type of server software developed to enable secure distribution of paid content over the web, recently incorporated by WMA (Windows Media Audio ).

DTS

DTS stands for Digital Theater Systems. DTS is a surround system different from Dolby Digital that has become a popular surround sound format for movies.

Dynamic range

The difference between the quietest and loudest sounds possible in an audio signal (without distorting or getting lost in noise). Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks are capable of a very wide dynamic range, delivering dramatic cinema-like effects.

EXIF (Exchangeable Image File)

A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for digital still cameras. Digital cameras from various manuafcturers use this compressed file format which carries date, time and thumbnail information, as well as the picture data.

Additional information

File extension

A tag added to the end of a filename to indicate the type of file. For example, “.mp3” indicates an MP3 file.

Interlaced video

A method of displaying a picture in which odd-numbered lines are updated in one pass, then even-numbered lines are updated in the next. See also Progressive scan video.

ISO 9660 format

International standard for the volume and file structure of CD-ROM discs.

JPEG

A file format used for still images, such as photographs and illustrations. JPEG files are identified by the file extension “.jpg” or “.JPG”. Most digital cameras use this format.

MP3

MP3 (MPEG1 audio layer 3) is a compressed audio file format. Files are recognized by their file extension “.mp3” or “.MP3”.

MPEG audio

An audio format used on Video CDs and some DVD discs. This system can convert MPEG audio to PCM format for wider compatibility with digital recorders and AV amplifiers. See also PCM (Pulse Code Modulation).

MPEG video

The video format used for Video CDs and DVDs. Video CD uses the older MPEG-1 standard, while DVD uses the newer and much better quality MPEG-2 standard.

PBC (PlayBack Control) (Video CD/Super VCD only)

A system of navigating a Video CD/Super VCD through on-screen menus recorded onto the disc. Especially good for discs that you would normally not watch from beginning to end all at once—karaoke discs, for example.

PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)

The most common system of encoding digital audio, found on CDs and DAT. Excellent quality, but requires a lot of data compared to formats such as Dolby Digital and MPEG audio. See also Digital audio.

Progressive scan video

Also called non-interlaced video, this method of displaying a picture updates all the lines in one pass, resulting in a more stable, flickerfree image than interlaced video (for a given scanning rate). See also Interlaced video.

Regions (DVD-Video only)

These associate discs and players with particular areas of the world. This system will only play discs that have compatible region codes. You can find the region code of your system by looking on the rear panel. Some discs are compatible with more than one region (or all regions).

Sampling frequency

The rate at which sound is measured to be turned into digital audio data. The higher the rate, the better the sound quality, but the more digital information is generated. Standard CD audio has a sampling frequency of 44.1kHz, which means 44,100 samples (measurements) per second. See also Digital audio.
