Connections
Easy connections
Important
• Before making or changing any connections, switch off the power and disconnect the power
cable from the AC outlet.
• The setup described here is a basic setup that allows you to play discs using just the cables
supplied with the player. In this setup, stereo audio is played through the speakers in your TV.
• This player is equipped with copy protection technology. Do not connect this player to your
TV via a VCR using audio/video cables, as the picture from this player will not appear properly
on your TV. (This player may also not be compatible with some combination TV/VCRs for the
same reason; refer to the manufacturer for more information.)
1 Connect the VIDEO OUT and
AUDIO OUT L/R jacks to a set of A/V inputs
on your TV.
Use the supplied audio/video cable,
connecting the red and white plugs to the
audio outputs and the yellow plug to the video
output. Make sure you match up the left and
right audio outputs with their corresponding
inputs for correct stereo sound.
See below if you want to use a component,
S-Video or SCART cable for the video
connection.
2 Connect the supplied AC power cable
to the AC IN inlet, then plug into a power
outlet.
Note
• Before unplugging the player from the
power outlet, make sure you first switch it
into standby using either the front panel
 STANDBY/ON button, or the remote
control, and wait of the -OFF- message to
disappear from the player’s display.
• For the above reasons, do not plug this
player into a switched power supply found
on some amplifiers and AV receivers.

Connecting using a SCART AV
cable
A SCART-type AV connector is provided for
connection to a TV or AV receiver. The video
output is switchable between ordinary
composite, S-Video and RGB. See AV
Connector Out on page 39 for how to set it.
The SCART AV connector also outputs analog
audio, so there is no need to also connect the
AUDIO OUT (5.1ch) FRONT L/R jacks.
• Use a SCART cable (not supplied) to
connect the AV CONNECTOR (RGB) TV/
AV Receiver output to a SCART AV input
on your TV (or AV receiver).
Connecting using the S-Video
output
If your TV (or other equipment) has an S-Video
(S1) input, you can use the S-Video output on
this player instead of the standard (composite)
output for a better quality picture.
• Use an S-Video cable (not supplied) to
connect the S-VIDEO OUT to an S-Video
input on your TV (or monitor or AV
receiver).
Line up the small triangle above the jack with
the same mark on the plug before plugging in.

Connecting using the
component video output
You can use the component video output
instead of the standard video out jack to
connect this player to your TV (or other
equipment). This should give you the best
quality picture from the three types of video
output available.
• Use a component video cable (not
supplied) to connect the COMPONENT
VIDEO OUT jacks to a component video
input on your TV, monitor or AV receiver.
Watching progressive scan video
from the component video
outputs
This player can output progressive scan video
from the component video output. Compared
to interlace video, progressive scan video
effectively doubles the scanning rate of the
picture, resulting in a very stable, flicker-free
image.
To set up the player for use with a progressive
scan TV, see Video Output settings on page 39.
When the player is set to output progressive
scan video, the PRGSVE indicator lights in the
front panel display.
Important
• If you connect a TV that is not compatible
with a progressive scan signal and switch
the player to progressive, you will not be
able to see any picture at all. In this case,
switch everything off and reconnect using
the supplied video cable (see Easy
connections on page 10), then switch back
to Interlace (see below).
Switching the video output to interlace
using the front panel controls
Switch the player to standby then, using the
front panel controls, press  STANDBY/ON
while pressing  to switch the player back to
Interlace.
• If the player is connected using HDMI,
disconnect the HDMI cable before
resetting the player to interlace output. (If
left connected, the HDMI output
resolution will be reset to its default — see
Resetting the output resolution to the
default setting with HDMI connection on
page 15.)

Connecting to an AV receiver
You can connect this player to your AV receiver
using the multichannel analog outputs or one
of the digital outputs.
In addition to these connections, you should
also connect the 2 channel analog outputs for
compatibility with all discs.
You’ll probably also want to connect a video
output to your AV receiver. You can use any of
the video outputs available on this player (the
illustration shows a standard (composite)
connection).
1 Connect the analog AUDIO OUT (5.1ch)
FRONT L/R and VIDEO OUT jacks on this
player to a set of analog audio and video
inputs on your AV receiver.
2 Connect the AV receiver’s video output
to a video input on your TV.
You can also use the SCART AV connector, the
S-Video or component video jacks to connect
to the AV receiver if you prefer.
Tip
• You usually have to connect the same kind
of video cable between your DVD player
and AV receiver, and between your AV
receiver and TV.
Connecting the multichannel
analog outputs
If your AV receiver has 5.1 channel analog
inputs, we recommend connecting this player
to it using the multichannel analog outputs.
Doing this will ensure that you can enjoy all
kinds of disc, including Dolby Digital and DTS
DVD-Video discs, as well as high sampling rate
and multichannel DVD-Audio and SACD
discs.
• Connect the multi-channel audio
outputs on this player to the multi-channel
audio inputs on your AV receiver.
It’s convenient to use three stereo audio
cables; one for the FRONT, one for the
SURROUND and one for the CENTER and
SUBWOOFER channels.
You can also use the SCART AV connector, the
S-Video or component video jacks to connect
to the AV receiver if you prefer.
Tip
• After connecting up and switching on, you
should change the Audio Output Mode
setting in the Initial Setup menu from the
default 2 Channel to 5.1 Channel. See
also Audio Output Mode on page 44.

Connecting the digital output
This player has both optical and coaxial-type
digital audio outputs for connection to an AV
receiver. Connect whichever is convenient.
Depending on the capabilities of your AV
receiver, you might have to set up this player to
output only digital audio in a compatible
format. See Digital Audio Out settings on
page 38 and refer to the operating instructions
that came with your AV receiver.
Note that SACD audio is not output through
these jacks, so this connection should be in
addition to, rather than instead of, a 5.1
channel analog connection.
• Connect one of the DIGITAL AUDIO
OUT jacks on this player to a digital input
on your AV receiver.
For an optical connection, use an optical cable
(not supplied) to connect the OPTICAL
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack to an optical input
on your AV receiver.
For a coaxial connection, use a coaxial cable
(similar to the supplied video cable) to connect
the COAXIAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack to a
coaxial input on your AV receiver.
Connecting using HDMI
If you have a HDMI equipped monitor or
display, you can connect it to this player using
a commercially available HDMI cable.
The HDMI connector outputs uncompressed
digital video, as well as almost every kind of
digital audio that the player is compatible with,
including DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, SACD,
Video CD/Super VCD, CD, WMA, MP3,
MPEG-4 AAC, DivX video and WMV.
• Use an HDMI cable (not supplied) to
connect the HDMI OUT interconnect on
this player to an HDMI interconnect on a
HDMI-compatible display.
The arrow on the cable connector body should
be face up for correct alignment with the
connector on the player.
Note
• This unit has been designed to be
compliant with HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface). Depending on the
component you have connected, using a
DVI connection may result in unreliable
signal transfers.

• When you change the component
connected to the HDMI output, you will
also need to change the HDMI settings to
match the new component (see HDMI
Out on page 38, HDMI Resolution on
page 39 and HDMI Color on page 40 to do
this). However, the settings for each
component are then stored in memory (for
up to 2 components).
• The HDMI connection is compatible with
2 channel linear PCM signals (44.1 kHz to
192 kHz, 16 bit/20 bit/24 bit), and Dolby
Digital, DTS, MPEG audio bitstream, multi
channel DSD, and multi channel linear
PCM signals, (5.1 channel signals up to

About HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
supports both video and audio on a single
digital connection for use with DVD players,
DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices.
HDMI was developed to provide the
technologies of High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection (HDCP) as well as Digital
Visual Interface (DVI) in one specification.
HDCP is used to protect digital content
transmitted and received by DVI-compliant
displays.
HDMI has the capability to support standard,
enhanced, or high-definition video plus
standard to multi-channel surround-sound
audio. HDMI features include uncompressed
digital video, a bandwidth of up to five
gigabytes per second (with HDTV signals), one
connector (instead of several cables and
connectors), and communication between the
AV source and AV devices such as DTVs.

Audio Settings and Video Adjust menus
Audio Settings menu
The Audio Settings menu offers features for
adjusting the way discs sound.
1 Press HOME MENU and select ‘Audio
Settings’ from the on-screen display.
2 Select and change settings using the /
// (cursor) buttons, and ENTER.
Virtual Surround
• Settings: On, Off (default)
Switch on Virtual Surround to enjoy realistic
surround sound effects from just two
speakers.
Note
• 96 kHz linear PCM audio is automatically
downsampled to 48 kHz if Virtual Surround
is switched on.
• If the player is outputting Dolby Digital,
DTS or MPEG bitstream audio (in other
words, no conversion to PCM), Virtual
Surround has no effect on the audio from
the digital output. See Digital Audio Out
settings on page 38 for how to set up the
digital output formats.
• How good the surround effect is varies
with the disc.
Audio DRC
• Settings: High, Medium, Low, Off (default)
When watching Dolby Digital DVDs at low
volume, it’s easy to lose the quieter sounds
completely — including some of the dialog.
Switching Audio DRC (Dynamic Range
Control) to on can help by bringing up the
quieter sounds, while controlling loud peaks.
How much of a difference you hear depends
on the material you’re listening to. If the
material doesn’t have wide variations in
volume, you may not notice much change.
Note
• Audio DRC is only effective with Dolby
Digital audio sources.
• Audio DRC is only effective through the
digital output when Digital Out is set to
On, and Dolby Digital Out is set to Dolby
Digital > PCM (see Digital Audio Out
settings on page 38).
• The effect of Audio DRC also depends on
your speakers and AV receiver settings.
Dialog
• Settings: High, Medium, Low, Off (default)
The Dialog feature is designed to make the
dialog stand out from other background
sounds in the soundtracks.

About DivX®
VOD content
In order to play DivX VOD (video on demand)
content on this player, you first need to register
the player with the DivX VOD registration
system. You do this by generating a DivX VOD
registration code from the device, which you
will submit to DivX via the DivX Player program
available for your computer.
Important
• DivX VOD content is protected by a DRM
(Digital Rights Management) system. This
restricts playback of content to specific,
registered devices.
• If you load a disc that contains DivX VOD
content not authorized for your player, the
message Authorization Error is displayed
and the content will not play.
• Resetting the player (as described in
Resetting the player on page 53) will not
cause you to lose your registration code.
Displaying your DivX VOD
registration code
1 Press HOME MENU and select ‘Initial
Settings’.
2 Select ‘Options’, then ‘DivX VOD’.
3 Select ‘Display’.
Your 8-digit registration code is displayed.
• Make a note of the code as you will need it
to complete your registration.
Playing DivX® VOD content
Some DivX VOD content may only be playable
a fixed number of times. When you load a disc
containing this type of DivX VOD content, the
remaining number of plays is shown
on-screen and you then have the option of
playing the disc (thereby using up one of the
remaining plays), or stopping. If you load a
disc that contains expired DivX VOD content
(for example, content that has zero remaining
plays), the message Rental Expired is
displayed.
If your DivX VOD content allows an unlimited
number of plays, then you may load the disc
into your player and play the content as often
as you like, and no message will be displayed.

Audio Output Mode
• Default setting: 2 Channel
If you connected this player to your amplifier
using the 5.1 channel analog outputs (front,
surround, center and subwoofer outs), set this
to 5.1 Channel; if you connected only the
stereo outs, set to 2 Channel.
Note
• Even if you set Audio Output Mode to 5.1
Channel, you’ll only get sound from all
speakers when playing a 5.1 channel
multi-channel disc.
• When set to 5.1 Channel, only the front left/
right channels are output from the AUDIO
OUT (2ch) jacks. Change to 2 Channel if
you want to listen to downmixed stereo
audio (for example, because you are
listening through the TV’s built-in
speakers).
• When set to 5.1 Channel there is no digital
output when playing DVD-Audio.
• If you set to 2 Channel, Dolby Digital, DTS
and MPEG audio is mixed down to two
channels so you still hear all the audio
recorded on the disc. With DTS encoded
audio, you can choose how the signal is
downmixed to PCM audio. See DTS
Downmix on page 43 to change the
downmix setting.
• Some DVD-Audio discs don’t allow down-
mixing of audio. These discs always output
multi-channel audio regardless of the
setting made here.
