Connections
To obtain the best possible sound from this system, you
need to place all the speakers except the subwoofer at the
same distance from the listening position.
If your speakers cannot be placed at the same distance
from the listening position
You can adjust the delay time of the speakers. See “Delay
menu (DELAY)” on page 32.
NOTE
• Place the satellite speakers on a flat and level surface.
• The front and center speakers are magnetically shielded to
avoid color distortions on TVs. However, if not installed
properly, they may cause color distortions. So, pay attention
to the following when installing the speakers.
– When placing the speakers near a TV set, turn off the TV’s
main power switch or unplug it before installing the
speakers. Then wait at least 30 minutes before turning on
the TV’s main power switch again.
Some TVs may still be affected even though you have
followed the above. If this happens, move the speakers
away from the TV.
• The surround speakers and the subwoofer are not
magnetically shielded.
If they are located nearby the TV or monitor, it will probably
cause color distortion on the screen. To avoid this, do not
place the speakers nearby the TV or monitor.
• Be sure to place the subwoofer to the TV’s right. If you place
the subwoofer to the TV’s left, keep sufficient distance
between them to prevent the TV screen from appearing
mottled.
• Distortion of picture may occur when connecting the TV
via a VCR, or to a TV with a built-in VCR.
• You need to set “MONITOR TYPE” in the PICTURE
menu correctly according to the aspect ratio of your TV.
(See page 31.)
7 To connect a TV equipped with the component video
input jacks (Only for TH-P5)
You can enjoy a high quality picture by connecting with using
a component video cord.
NOTE
• Select “PROGRESS” for the scan mode when connecting the
TV with the component video cord; otherwise, the system
does not output video signals from the component video
jacks. (See page 15.)
• If your TV does not support progressive video input, connect
the center unit to the TV by using the SCART cable. (See “To
connect a TV with the SCART connector” below.)
• If the component video input jacks of your TV are of the
BNC type, use a plug adapter (not supplied) to convert the
pin plugs to BNC plugs.
• The component video signals can be output only when you
select DVD or USB MEMORY as the source to play. (See
page 14.)
7 To connect a TV with the SCART connector
* Some TV’s SCART connectors output audio signal. In
such a case, you can enjoy the TV sound through this
system by selecting TV SOUND as the source to play.
(See page 14.)
NOTE
• No sound signal comes out from “AV” (SCART) connector.
• Select the appropriate scan mode according to your TV. (See
page 15.)

Tuner operations
When the stereo FM program currently tuned in is noisy,
you can change the FM reception mode to improve the
reception.
7 While listening to an FM station
Press FM MODE.
The FM reception mode appears on the display window.
Each time you press the button, the FM reception mode
changes.

stereo effect. (The MONO indicator lights on the display
window.) In this mode, you will hear noise until you are
tuned in to a station.
Radio Data System allows FM stations to send an additional
signal along with their regular program signals. For
example, the stations send their station names, as well as
information about what type of program they broadcast,
such as sports or music, etc.
With the system, you can receive the following types of
Radio Data System signals:
PS (Program Service): Shows commonly known station
names.
PTY (Program Type): Shows types of broadcast programs.
RT (Radio Text): Shows text messages the station sends.
Enhanced Other Network: See page 37.
NOTE
• Radio Data System is not available for AM (MW)
broadcasts.
• Radio Data System may not operate correctly if the station
tuned is not transmitting Radio Data System signal properly
or if the signal strength is weak.
7 To show the Radio Data System signals information
Press DISPLAY with SHIFT pressed,
while listening to an FM station.
Each time you repeat the procedure, the indication on the
display window changes.
PS (Program Service):

will be displayed. “NO PS” appears if no signal is sent.
PTY (Program Type):
While searching, “PTY” appears and then the type of the
broadcast program will be displayed. “NO PTY” appears if
no signal is sent.
RT (Radio Text):
While searching, “RT” appears and then text messages the
station sends will be displayed. “NO RT” appears if no
signal is sent.
Frequency:
Station frequency (non-Radio Data System service).
About characters shown on the display window
When PS, PTY, or RT signals appear on the display window,
some special characters and marks may not be displayed
correctly.
NOTE
• If searching finishes at once, “PS”, “PTY”, and “RT” will not
appear on the display window.
Searching for a program by PTY codes
One of the advantages of the Radio Data System service is
that you can locate a particular kind of program from the
preset channels (see page 34) by specifying the PTY codes.
7 To search for a program using the PTY codes
NOTE
• Before you start operation;
– Press FM/AM on the remote control to select an FM
station.

Tuner operations
Switching to broadcast program of your
choice temporarily
Another convenient Radio Data System service is called
“Enhanced Other Network”.
This allows the system to switch temporarily to a broadcast
program of your choice (TA, News, and/or Info) from a
different station except in the following cases:
• When you are listening to non-Radio Data System
stations (all AM – MW stations, some FM stations and
other sources).
• When the system is in standby mode.
NOTE
• Before you start operations;
– The Enhanced Other Network function is only applicable
to preset stations.
Press TA/News/Info repeatedly with
SHIFT pressed, until the program
type indicator (TA/News/Info) you
want appears on the display window.
Each time you repeat the procedure, the indicator on the
display window changes.
TA: Traffic Announcement in your area.
News: News.
Info: Program the purpose of which is to impart advice in
the widest sense.
To stop listening to the program selected by
Enhanced Other Network
Press TA/News/Info repeatedly again so that the program
type indicator (TA/News/Info) goes off from the display
window. The system exits from Enhanced Other Network
standby mode and goes back to the previously selected
station.
When an emergency broadcast (Alarm signal) is sent
from an FM station
The system automatically tunes in to the station and
“ALARM” appears on the display window while the system
receiving the emergency broadcast.
Note that an emergency broadcast cannot be received in the
following cases;
• When you are listening to non-Radio Data System
stations (all AM — MW stations, some FM stations and
other sources).
• When the system is in standby mode.
The TEST signal is used for equipment test — whether
it can receive the Alarm signal correctly
The TEST signal makes the system work in the same way as
the Alarm signal does. If the TEST signal is received, the
system automatically switches to the station broadcasting
the TEST signal.
While receiving the TEST signal, “TEST” appears on the
display window.
7 How the Enhanced Other Network function actually
works
Case 1
If there is no station broadcasting the program you have
selected
The system continues tuning in to the current station.
‘
When a station starts broadcasting the program you have
selected, the system automatically switches to the station.
The indicator of received PTY code starts flashing.
‘
When the program is over, the system goes back to the
previously tuned station, but the Enhanced Other Network
function still remains activated.
Case 2
If the FM station you are listening to is broadcasting the
program you have selected
The system continues to receive the station but the indicator
of received PTY code starts flashing.
‘
When the program is over, the indicator of received PTY
code stops flashing and remains lit, but the Enhanced Other
Network function still remains activated.
NOTE
• In Enhanced Other Network standby mode, if you change the
source to play, Enhanced Other Network standby mode is
canceled temporarily. If you change the source to FM again,
the system returns to Enhanced Other Network standby
mode.
• Enhanced Other Network data sent from some stations may
not be compatible with this system.
• Enhanced Other Network does not function for some FM
stations with Radio Data System service.
• While listening to a program tuned in by the Enhanced Other
Network function, the station does not change even if
another network station starts broadcasting a program of the
same Enhanced Other Network data.
• While listening to a program tuned in by the Enhanced Other
Network function, you can only use TA/News/Info and
DISPLAY (with SHIFT pressed) as the tuner operation
buttons.
