WARNING
Before plugging in for the first time, read the following
section carefully.
The voltage of the available power supply differs
according to country or region. Be sure that the

Thank you for buying this Pioneer product.
Please read through these operating instructions so you will know how to operate your model properly.
After you have finished reading the instructions, put them away in a safe place for future reference.
CAUTION
The  STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from the
AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore, make
sure the unit has been installed so that the power
cord can be easily unplugged from the AC outlet in
case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard, the power
cord should also be unplugged from the AC outlet
when left unused for a long period of time (for
example, when on vacation). D3-4-2-2-2a*_A1_En
If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused
for a long period of time (for example, when on
vacation). D3-4-2-2-1a_A1_En
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 electric shock. Do not place the 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.

Only finalized discs will play back in this player. (This player does not have a function to finalize discs.)
Pioneer cannot guarantee playback compatibility for all self-recorded BD-discs because Blu-ray is a new and evolving format.
The playback compatibility will be affected by your choice of BD-recorder, BD-disc and BD-burning software. Please always
ensure you are using the latest software versions on all units and contact the individual manufacturers for further help if
required. To avoid inconveniences, please check the playback compatibility of your self-recorded disc before you purchase
this BD-player. For maximum playback compatibility of self-recorded BD-discs Pioneer recommends that the BDMV/BDAV
standards are used. If a playback issue occurs after purchase, please download the latest software version for your BD-player
from the Pioneer internet page or ask your Pioneer-Dealer. This BD-player uses the latest technology available at the time of
development and cannot guarantee support for future enhancements or changes to the standard.

that gives movie theater ambience to audio output when
the Player is connected to a Dolby Digital processor or
amplifier.
DTS
DTS is a digital sound system developed by DTS, Inc. for
use in cinemas.
Linear PCM
Linear PCM is a signal recording format used for Audio
CDs and on some DVD and Blu-ray discs. The sound
on Audio CDs is recorded at 44.1 kHz with 16 bits.
(Sound is recorded between 48 kHz with 16 bits and 96
kHz with 24 bits on DVD video discs and between 48
kHz with 16 bits and 192 kHz with 24 bits on BD video
discs.)
2 Subtitle languages

been simultaneously shot from up to 9 different angles
(the same scene is shot from the front, from the left side,
from the right side, etc.).
5 Region code
This indicates the region code (playable region code).
BD Video
Enjoy BD-specific functions including BONUSVIEW (BD-ROM
Profile 1 Version 1.1), such as picture-in-picture, and BD-LIVE
(page 29).
For the BD video discs compatible with BONUSVIEW/BD-
LIVE, you can enjoy additional contents by copying the data
from the discs or downloading it via the internet. For instance,
this function is capable of playing the original movie as the
primary video while playing video commentary from the film

Title, Chapter and Track
Blu-ray discs and DVDs are divided into “Titles” and
“Chapters”. If the disc has more than one movie on it, each
movie would be a separate “Title”. “Chapters”, on the other
hand, are subdivisions of titles. (See Example 1.)
Audio CDs are divided into “Tracks”. You can think of a
“Track” as one tune on an Audio CD. (See Example 2.)
Example 1: Blu-ray disc or DVD

Disc Precautions
Be Careful of Scratches and Dust
BD, DVD and CD discs are sensitive to dust, fingerprints
and especially scratches. A scratched disc may not be able
to be played back. Handle discs with care and store them
in a safe place.
Proper Disc Storage
Place the disc in the center of the
disc case and store the case and
disc upright.
Avoid storing discs in locations
subject to direct sunlight, close to
heating appliances or in locations of
high humidity.
Do not drop discs or subject them to
strong vibrations or impacts.
Avoid storing discs in locations
where there are large amounts of
dust or moisture.
Handling Precautions
If the surface is soiled, wipe gently with a soft, damp (water
only) cloth. When wiping discs, always move the cloth from
the center hole toward the outer edge.
Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzene, thinner, static
electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
Do not touch the surface.
Do not stick paper or adhesive labels to the disc.
If the playing surface of a disc is soiled or scratched, the
Player may decide that the disc is incompatible and eject
the disc tray, or it may fail to play the disc correctly.
Cleaning the Pick Up Lens
Never use commercially available cleaning discs. The use
of these discs can damage the lens.
Request the nearest service center approved by Pioneer to
clean the lens.
Warnings about dew formation
Condensation may form on pick up lens or disc in the
following conditions:
Immediately after a heater has been turned on.
In a steamy or very humid room.
When the Player is suddenly moved from a cold
environment to a warm one.
When condensation forms:
It becomes difficult for the Player to read the signals
on the disc and prevents the Player from operating
properly.
To remove condensation:
Take out the disc and leave the Player with the power
off until the condensation disappears. Using the Player
when there is condensation may cause malfunction.

About Control Function with HDMI
The functions work when a control function with HDMI-
compatible Pioneer Flat Screen TV, AV system (AV receiver or
amplifier, etc.) or HD AV Converter is connected to the player
using an HDMI cable.
Also refer to the operating instructions of the Flat Screen
TV, AV system (AV receiver or amplifier, etc.) and HD AV
Converter.
To use the control function with
HDMI
The control function with HDMI operates when control
function with HDMI is set to On for all devices connected
with HDMI cables.
Once connections and the settings of all the devices are
finished, be sure to check that the player’s picture is output
to the Flat Screen TV. (Also check after changing the
connected devices and reconnecting HDMI cables.) The
control function with HDMI may not operate properly if the
player’s picture is not properly output to the Flat Screen TV.
Use High Speed HDMI®
Cables when using the control
function with HDMI. The control function with HDMI may
not operate properly if other HDMI cables are used.
For some models, the control function with HDMI may be
referred to as “KURO LINK” or “HDMI Control”.
The control function with HDMI does not work with devices
of other brands, even if connected with an HDMI cable.
What the control function with HDMI
can do
Outputting the optimum picture quality to a Flat
Screen TV compatible with the control function with
HDMI.
When the control function with HDMI is enabled, video
signals with the optimum picture quality for control function
with HDMI are output from the player’s HDMI terminal.

Screen TV’s screen. (Auto-select function)
The input switches automatically on the Flat Screen TV, AV

When the language information from a connected Flat
Screen TV is received, you can have the player’s on-screen
display language change automatically to that of the Flat
Screen TV. This function is available only when playback is
stopped and the menu screen is not displayed.
About the PQLS function
PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) is a digital audio
transfer control technology using the HDMI control function.
The player’s output signals are controlled from the AV
amplifier to achieve high sound quality playback using the
amplifier’s quartz oscillator. This eliminates the influence of
the jitter generated during signal transfer which can adversely
affect the sound quality.
This player supports the functions below.
The “PQLS 2ch Audio” function that is only activated
when playing music CDs (CD-DAs)
The “PQLS Multi Surround” function that is activated
when playing all discs (BDs, DVDs, etc.) with linear PCM
audio output
The “PQLS Bitstream” function that is activated when
playing with bitstream audio output
The various PQLS functions are activated when a Pioneer
AV amplifier supporting the PQLS functions is connected
directly to the “HDMI OUT” terminal with an HDMI cable and
the main unit settings are set as shown below (page 43).
Control function with HDMI: On
HDMI audio output: PCM (PQLS multi-surround only)
Also refer to the AV amplifier’s operating instructions.
See the Pioneer website for AV amplifiers supporting the
PQLS function.
CAUTION
The PQLS function may stop working when the video
output resolution is switched. The PQLS function will start
working again once playback is stopped then restarted.
When the PQLS 2ch function is activated, the output from
the player’s VIDEO OUTPUT jacks may not have the proper
colors. If this happens, connect the TV and AV amplifier’s
HDMI terminals or the TV and player’s COMPONENT
VIDEO OUTPUT jacks to view the picture.

Enjoying BONUSVIEW or BD-LIVE
BD VIDEO
This Player is compatible with BD-Video BONUSVIEW
and BD-LIVE.
When using BD-Video discs compatible with
BONUSVIEW, you can enjoy such functions as
secondary video (picture in picture) and secondary
audio. With BD-Video discs supporting BD-LIVE,
special video images and other data can be
downloaded from the Internet.
Data recorded on BD video and downloaded from BD-
LIVE is stored on the USB memory device (external
memory). To enjoy these functions, connect a USB
memory device (minimum 1 GB capacity (2 GB or
more recommended)) supporting USB 2.0 High Speed
(480 Mbit/s) to the USB port (page 20) on this player.
To recall data stored in the USB memory device, first insert
the disc media that was being used at the time the data
was downloaded (if a different disc is loaded, the data
stored on the USB memory device cannot be played).
If a USB memory device containing other data (previously
recorded) is used, the video and audio may not play back
properly.
If the USB memory device is disconnected from this player
during playback, playback of the disc will stop. Do not
disconnect the USB memory device while playback is in
progress.
Some time may be required for the data to load (read/
write).
CAUTION
It may not be possible to use the BONUSVIEW and
BD-LIVE functions if there is insufficient space on the
USB memory device. In this case, refer to “USB Memory
Management” on page 48 for erasing the Virtual Package
data and the BD-LIVE data in the USB memory device.
•
NOTE
Operation of USB memory devices is not guaranteed.
Playback of BD-LIVE function data differs depending on
the disc used. For details, consult the user instructions
supplied with the disc.
To enjoy the BD-LIVE function, a network connection and
settings are required (pages 20 and 45).
For conditions and restrictions regarding Internet
connections using the BD-LIVE function, see the section
“BD Internet Access” (page 44).
BD-LIVE is a function that provides for automatic
connection to the Internet. Discs supporting the BD-LIVE
function may send ID codes identifying this player and the
disc to the contents provider via the Internet.
The unit can be set to prevent automatic connection to the
Internet. For instructions on this setting, see the section
“BD Internet Access” (page 44).
BDP-LX53/BDP-330 only: When USB memory devices are
connected to both the USB ports on the player’s front and
rear panels, the device that was connected first is used for
the BONUSVIEW and BD-LIVE functions, while the device
that was connected last is used for file playback and
