01 Before you start

Introduction to home theater

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 channels 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 receiver will automatically decode Dolby Digital, DTS or Dolby Surround DVD-Video discs. In most cases, you won’t have to make changes for realistic surround sound, but other possibilities (like listening to a CD with multi-channel surround sound) are explained in Playing sources, starting on page 43.

(*except those that contain MP3 files formatted as specified in the MP3 audio compatibility section)

DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs (Audio CDs and Video CDs) recorded using a DVD recorder, CD recorder or personal computer may not be playable on this machine. 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.

CD-R/RW compatibility

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

Before you start

01

This unit cannot record CD-R or CD-RW 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.

This unit will not play DVD-RW discs that were recorded using the Video Recording format.

This unit cannot record DVD-R/RW discs.

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

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.

MP3 audio compatibility

This unit will play CD-ROM discs containing files saved in the MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 format (MP3) with a sampling rate of 32, 44.1 or 48kHz. Incompatible files will not play and UNPLAYABLE will show in the display.

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

The CD-ROM used to compile your MP3 files must be ISO 9660 Level 2 compliant.

CD physical format: Mode1, Mode2 XA Form1.

This player only plays tracks that are named with the file extension “.mp3” or “.MP3”.

This player is not compatible with multisession discs. If you try and play a multisession disc, only the first session will be played.

Use CD-R or CD-RW media for recording your MP3 files. The disc must be finalized in order to play in this unit.

This player can recognize a maximum of 250 folders and 250 tracks. Discs containing more than 250 folders or 250 tracks will play, but only the first 250 folders / tracks.

Folder and track names (excluding the “.mp3” extension) are displayed.

01 Before you start

There are many different recording bitrates available to encode your 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 MP3 tracks, but please note that the sound quality becomes noticeably worse at lower bit-rates.

Setting up the remote to control your TV

You can set up the supplied remote to control your TV. Here’s how to set it up.

1Switch on your TV.

2Find the name of the manufacturer of your TV in the Preset Code List on page 68-69.

Next to each manufacturer is one or more three digit codes. These tell the remote what kind of TV you have.

If the name of the manufacturer of your TV does not appear in the table, you won’t be able to set up this remote to control your TV.

3 Point the remote at your TV, hold down the CLEAR button, then enter the three digit code for your TV.

The remote transmits an on/off signal to the TV. If you’ve entered the correct code, your TV should switch off.

If your TV doesn’t turn off, repeat the procedure using the next code in the list until your TV switches off successfully. Once set, you can then use the following individual TV controls.

Getting started

Using the on-screen displays

For ease of use, this player 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 player, 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.

Playing discs

The basic playback controls for playing DVD, CD, Video CD and MP3 discs are covered here. Further functions are detailed in the next chapter.

1If 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.

2Press 0OPEN/CLOSE to open the disc tray.

3Load 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).

03 Getting started

4 Press 3 (6) to start playback.

If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD, a menu may appear. See pages 20–21 for how to navigate these.

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

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

Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for your player. The region number should be printed on the disc; check it against the region number of the player (which you can find on the rear panel). See also page 8.

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 page 59.

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 page 59 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 page 6 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 player 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 player, so even if you have 4:3 (Pan & Scan) selected, those discs will still be shown in letterbox format. This is not a malfunction.

Introduction

With most of the features described in this chapter, you can make use of on-screen displays. For an explanation of how to navigate these, see Using the on-screen displays on page 17.

Many of the functions covered in this chapter apply to DVD discs, Video CDs, CDs and MP3s, although the exact operation of some varies slightly with the kind of disc loaded. With CDs and MP3 discs, you can use the front panel display instead of the OSD for many features.

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

When playing Video CDs, 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 a track.

Using the Disc Navigator to browse the contents of a disc

(Available only when using the OSD)

Use the Disc Navigator to browse through the contents of a disc to find the part you want to play.

It’s not possible to use the Disc Navigator when playing a Video CD in PBC mode, or an unfinalized CD-R/RW disc.

An introduction to RDS

European model only

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.

This system 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.

This unit can search for and display the following program types:

Using the RDS display

European model only

To display the different types of RDS information available (RT, PS and PTY as explained on the previous page), press SYSTEM DISP on the remote control to cycle through the types of RDS information.

Each press changes the display as follows:

 

 

 

RT

 

 

PS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frequency

 

 

 

 

PTY

 

 

Clock

 

 

PTY SEARCH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 being transmitted from the broadcast station. The display will automatically switch to the PS data display. If no PS data is transmitted from the station, the frequency will be displayed.

In the PTY display, there are cases where NO DATA or NO TYPE is shown. If this happens, the PS display is shown after a few seconds.

This unit converts lower case characters transmitted by broadcast stations to upper case characters.

Searching for RDS programs

Surround speaker distance setting

• Default setting: 1.8 m

Like the center speaker, you should set the distance of the surround speakers accurately to hear sounds coming from both front and surround speakers at the same time.

• Use/to set the distance of the surround speakers from the main listening position (within a 9 meter range).

Front speaker distance setting

• Default setting: 1.8 m

Sets the distance from the front speakers to the listening position.

• Use/to set the distance of the front speakers from the main listening position (within a 9 meter range).

Center speaker distance setting

• Default setting: 1.5 m

The center speaker is normally placed directly in the front of the listening room and closer to the listening position than the front speakers. This means that the sound from the center speaker will be heard before the front speakers. To prevent this, set the center speaker distance setting to delay the sound from the center speaker so that the sound from the front and center speakers will be heard at the same time.

• Use/to set the distance of the center speaker from the main listening position (within a 9 meter range).

Dynamic range control setting

• Default setting: OFF

Dynamic range is the difference between the loudest and softest sounds in any given signal. With this setting, you can compress the dynamic range, so that low level sounds can be heard more easily (sounding relatively louder) yet louder sounds won’t be too overbearing.

• Press/to set the dynamic range control (OFF, MID or HIGH).

When the volume level is increased, set to OFF.

When listening at low volumes, set to HIGH for maximum dynamic range compression.

Dynamic range control is effective only when a Dolby Digital signal is being played back.

En

Setting up for surround sound

Dual mono setting

• Default setting: L-CH1 R-CH 2

The dual mono setting can only be used when listening to Dolby Digital discs with dual mono encoding. These discs are not widely used, but are sometimes used to seperate the backing track from the vocals on karaoke discs. With this setting you can choose which channel in the dual mono setting you want to listen to.

You will hear the channel you have selected (either CH1 or CH2) through your center speaker. If surround sound is switched off, you will hear the channel you have selected through both front speakers. In the L-CH1 R- CH 2 setting, the left front speaker will play channel 1 and the right front speaker will play channel 2.

• Use/to cycle through the possible dual mono settings.

MONO

LFE attenuator setting

• Default setting: 0 dB

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

• Use/to set the attenuation level (0 dB, 10 dB or OFF).

Setting the relative volume level of each channel

Default setting (European model only):

RS/LS: +2dB SW: +1dB

All other channels: 0dB

Default setting (U.S. model only):

All channels: 0db

Default setting (all other models):

SW: –2dB

All other channels: 0dB

For best surround sound playback, you should set the relative channel levels from the main listening position. You can set seperate levels for each surround mode.

1Press SURROUND repeatedly to select a multi-channel listening mode.

The Surround mode can be set to anything but AUTO or STEREO.

Using the multi-channel sound modes

There are three basic multi-channel sound modes: Auto, Surround and Advanced Surround. The Stereo mode (available in all three modes) bypasses the multi-channel sound modes and downmixes multi-channel sources to your two-front speakers.

Auto

The AUTO mode automatically decodes Dolby Digital, DTS or Dolby Surround sources. You can identify Dolby Digital software by the 1ormarks. Most Dolby Surround software is marked 3, but unmarked software may also incorporate Dolby Surround.

Surround modes

The surround mode options (below) can add surround sound to regular stereo sources.

Choose one of the following to add depth to a 2 channel source:

Pro Logic

This mode gives 4.1 channel surround sound. It is less sensitive to the quality of the source material, so may be useful when Pro Logic II Movie/ Music modes do not give good results.

07

Pro Logic II Movie

This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound. It is suitable for movies, especially those recorded in Dolby Surround. The channel separation and movement of surround effects is comparable to Dolby Digital 5.1.

Pro Logic II Music

This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound and is suitable for music. Compared to Pro Logic II Movie, the surround effect is more enveloping.

Advanced Surround modes

These are designed to be used with multi channel surround sound audio/visual sources (like DVDs and LDs). Most Advanced Surround modes are designed to be used with film soundtracks, but some modes are also suited for music sources. Try different settings with various soundtracks to see which you like.

Advanced Music

Simulates the acoustic environment of a large concert hall and is suitable for music or musical sources marked 1

(

) or

.

Advanced Movie

Simulates the relaxed environment of a movie theater, and is suitable for watching movies on sources marked 1

(

) or

.

43

En

07 Playing sources

Virtual Surround Back

The Virtual Surround Back effect simulates 6.1 surround channel listening, giving the impression that there is a surround back speaker in your system when listening to a 5.1 channel source.

Expanded

This mode is especially designed to give sound depth to stereo sources. The overall effect builds a dynamic and broad sound space, allowing two-channel (stereo) signals to imitate a five speaker sound. Use with Dolby Pro Logic for a stereo surround effect. You can also use with Dolby Digital sources for a wider stereo field than the Surround modes.

TV Surround

You can use this mode to give surround sound to mono or stereo TV audio sources.

Virtual Surround

When you select this mode, you will hear a surround sound effect produced from the two front speakers only. When selected, you won’t hear any sound from the other speakers in your system.

5-Channel Stereo

This can be selected to give powerful multichannel sound to a stereo source by giving equal power to all of the speakers in your setup. It is particularly well-suited to music sources with deep bass and a strong rhythmic feel.

44

En

Phones Surround

This is very similar to the Virtual Surround mode, and is available when you’re listening to the headphones to create an overall surround sound effect.

Stereo

When you select STEREO (available in both the Surround and Advanced surround modes), you will hear the source through just the front left and right speakers. Dolby Digital and DTS multi-channel sources are downmixed to stereo.

The audio plays according to the surround setup settings and you can still use the tone control (SOUND MODE) functions.

Listening to multi-channel playback

Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and DTS signal processing is done automatically corresponding to the input signal.

Some DVD Video discs feature a Parental Lock level. If your 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 player.

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.

Not all discs that you may consider inappropriate for your children use the Parental Lock feature. These discs will always play without requiring the password first.

If you forget your password, you’ll need to reset the system to its factory settings (page 57), then register a new password.

Using discs with this unit

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).

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 unit

Hints on installation

We want you to enjoy using this unit 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.

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 player 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 player 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 unit.

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 for CD players are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens.

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 unit

If you need to move the unit, first press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn the player off. Wait for GOOD BYE to disappear from the display, then unplug the power cord. Never lift or move the unit during playback— discs rotate at a high speed and may be damaged.

Unplugging the unit before GOOD BYE completely disappears from the display may cause the system to return to the factory settings.

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 51) of this player 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 52) of this player 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.

66

En

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 player’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.

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.

DTS

DTS stands for Digital Theater System. 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.

File extension

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

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 unit can convert MPEG audio to PCM format for wider compatibility with digital recorders and AV amplifiers. See also PCM.

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.

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.

PBC (PlayBack Control) (Video CD only)

A system of navigating a Video CD 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.

Regions (DVD-Video only)

These associate discs and players with particular areas of the world. This unit will only play discs that have compatible region codes. You can find the region code of your unit 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.

Power cord caution

Handle the power cord by the plug part. 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 electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, or other object on the power cord or pinch the cord in any other way. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electric shock. Check the power cord once in a while. If you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

This product is for general household purposes. Any failure due to use for other than household purposes (such as long-term use for business purposes in a restaurant or use in a car or ship) and which requires repair will be charged for even during the warranty period.
