Home theater sound setup
Depending on the size and characteristics of
your room, you can choose to place your
speakers in one of two ways using this system:
• Standard surround 5-spot setup – This is
a standard multichannel surround sound
speaker setup for optimal 5.1 channel
home theatre sound.
• Front surround 3-spot setup – This setup
is ideal when rear surround speaker
placement isn't possible or you want to
avoid running long speaker cables in your
listening area. Use this setup together with
the Front Surround modes to take
advantage of wall and ceiling reflections
for a very realistic surround effect.
See About the listening modes on page 23 for
more on using the different listening modes
with each speaker setup.
Using the Room Setup
After you have set up your speakers to your
liking (see Home theater sound setup above),
make sure you calibrate your system for
surround sound. This is a quick and easy way
to get good surround sound for your room.
For a more detailed surround sound setup, see
Using the System Setup menu on page 44.
1 If the system isn’t already on, press
 STANDBY/ON to switch it on.
2 Press ROOM SETUP.
• If you have previously set up the room type
and seating position, the display will show
the current room settings.
3 Press ENTER.
4 Use 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
5 Use 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
Note
• 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 46), you will see Room Set? in the
display when you first press the ROOM
SETUP button.

Setting up the remote to
control your TV
You can set up the supplied remote to control
your TV using the TV CONTROL buttons.
1 Switch on your TV.
2 Find the name of the manufacturer of
your TV in the Preset code list on page 70.
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 CLR 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
use the individual TV controls shown below.
Note
• The default setting is for a Pioneer TV.
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.
Important
• Throughout this manual, ‘Select’ means
use the cursor buttons to highlight an item
on-screen, then press ENTER.
Button What it does
 Switches your TV on or into
standby.
CH +/– Changes the TV channel.
VOL +/– Adjusts the volume.

Note
• When a Video CD is loaded, the Resume
point is lost if the system is switched off, or
switched to a function other than DVD
(CD).
• For the Last Memory function to work, you
must press  (stop) to stop playback
before opening the disc tray.
• The Last Memory function doesn’t work
with VR format DVD-RW discs.
FAQ
• 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 61.
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 61.
• 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 61 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
Disc / content format playback compatibility
on 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 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.

Video CD/Super VCD PBC menus
Some Video CD/Super VCDs have menus from
which you can choose what you want to watch.
These are called PBC (Playback control)
menus.
You can play a PBC Video CD/Super VCD
without having to navigate the PBC menu by
pressing  (stop) then starting playback using
a number button to select a track, rather than
 (play) (or  on the front panel).
Listening to the radio
The tuner can receive both FM and AM
broadcasts, and lets you memorize your
favorite stations so you don’t have to manually
tune in every time you want to listen. For more
on using the radio, see More tuner features:

Listening to your system
About the listening modes
As explained in Home theater sound setup on
page 15, there are two basic surround speaker
setup options available. Of course you can
select any of the listening modes regardless of
how you place your speakers, but you will
achieve the best surround effect by using the
listening modes in conjunction with your
speaker setup:
• Standard surround 5-spot setup – Use
the Standard (Listening in surround sound
on page 24) and Advanced (Using the
Advanced Surround effects on page 25)
surround listening modes with this setup.
• Front surround 3-spot setup – See Using
Front Surround on page 25 for the options
available with this speaker setup.
Make sure you have completed Using the
Room Setup on page 15. For a more detailed
surround sound setup, see Using the System
Setup menu on page 44.
Note
• Certain features explained in this section
may not be possible depending on the
source (for example, 88.2 / 96 kHz sources),
or a conflicting system setting. See Error
Messages on page 67 for more on this.
Auto listening mode
The Auto listening mode is the simplest way to
listen to any source as it was mastered: the
output from the speakers mirrors the channels
in the source material.
• Press SURROUND to select the ‘Auto’
listening mode.
If the source is Dolby Digital or DTS, the
2 DIGITAL or DTS indicator on the front panel
lights.
Note
• Any previously active Dolby Pro Logic or
Advanced Surround mode is canceled
when Auto listening mode is selected.

Chapter 7:
More tuner features: RDS
European model only
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
Sport – Sport
Educate – Educational material
Drama – Radio plays or serials
Culture – National or regional culture,
theater, 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
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
Note
• 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.
• In the PTY display, there are cases where
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
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.
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
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.
If you don’t press ENTER, searching resumes.
