Preparations
C Connecting to a TV with component jacks
You can enjoy picture of high-fidelity color reproduction by connecting the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks on the player to your TV.

About the scanning mode
Depending on the material source format, DVD VIDEO discs can be classified into two types; film source and video source (note that some DVD VIDEO discs contain both film source and video source). Film sources are recorded as 24-frame-persecond information, while (NTSC) video sources are recorded as 30-frame-per-second (60-field-per-second interlaced) information. When the player plays back a film source material, uninterlaced progressive output signals are created using the original information. When a video source material is played back, the player interleaves lines between the interlaced lines on each to create the interpolated picture and outputs as the progressive signal.

NOTES
• Connect “Y” to “Y,” “PB” to “PB” (CB), “PR” to “PR” (CR) correctly. • When using the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks, do not connect the S-VIDEO output jack on the player. • If your TV has component video input jacks of BNC type, use an adapter which converts a pin jack to a BNC jack (not supplied).

Progressive scan video playback available
In the Progressive scanning mode, you can enjoy high quality picture with less flickers when the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks are connected to a TV or monitor that supports the progressive video input.

Connecting to a digital audio device
You can enjoy sound of enhanced quality by connecting the player’s DIGITAL OUT (either OPTICAL or COAXIAL) jack to a digital input of an amplifier, etc., using an optical or coaxial digital cable. The digital audio signal on a disc will be transferred directly from the player. If the connected digital audio equipment is a Dolby Digital or DTS decoder or an amplifier with a built-in decoder, you can enjoy high-quality surround sound.

NOTES
• Connect the player and the digital audio device by using either an optical digital cable or a coaxial digital cable. • It is not recommended to use the digital jacks for dubbing. When recording the sounds (DVD VIDEO, SVCD, Video CD or Audio CD) played back on the player, record them through the analog jacks. • Depending on the disc, no signal may be output from the DIGITAL OUT. Make an analog connection in this case. • Set [DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT] in the [AUDIO] preference display correctly according to the connected digital audio equipment. If setting made for [DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT] is incorrect, loud noise may be generated causing damage to the speakers (see page 28).

NOTES
• If you change the [RESUME] setting from [DISC RESUME] to [OFF] or [ON], you cannot resume playback of a disc whose “resuming” position is stored. However, when you again set [RESUME] to [DISC RESUME], you will then be able to resume playback of the disc. • If you interrupt the playback of a disc for which an interrupted position has already been stored, the memory will be updated with the new interrupted position. • For a double-sided DVD VIDEO disc, the player regards each side as a different disc. Therefore, to resume playback of such a disc, the disc must be inserted with the same side down. • When the player memorizes an interrupted point for a disc, it also memorizes Audio, Subtitle and Angle settings. • The player may not resume playback exactly from the interrupted point. In the case of an SVCD/Video CD disc with PBC function, the player may resume playback from a point slightly earlier or later than the point where playback was interrupted.

When you select 1.5 times normal speed playback, the disc is played back with sound. • For DVD VIDEO discs, the subtitle does not go of. • If the sound of a DVD VIDEO disc is recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS format, stereo linear PCM signals are output. With some DVD VIDEO discs, the sound quality and volume may alter, or the sound may be out of tune. • To switch from rapid reverse playback to x1.5 Quick Playback, first press 3, then press ¡ once.

Appendix D: Glossary
480i/480p Indicates the number of scanning lines and scanning format of an image signal. 480i indicates 480 scanning lines with interlace format, and 480p indicates 480 scanning lines with progressive format. Aspect ratio A ratio which defines the shape of the rectangular picture in a TV. It is the width of the picture relative to the height. A conventional TV picture is 4:3 in aspect ratio. Bitstream The digital form of multichannel audio data (e.g., 5.1-channel) before it is decoded into its various channels. Chapter/title Chapter is the smallest division and title is the largest division on DVD VIDEO. A chapter is a division of a title and similar to a track for Video CD or Audio CD. Component video Video signals with three channels of separate information that makes up the picture. There are some types of component video, such as R/G/B and Y/CB(PB)/CR(PR). Composite video A single video signal commonly used in most consumer video products that contains all luminance, color, and synchronization information. Dolby Digital (AC3) A six-channel system consisting of left, center, right, left rear, right rear and LFE (Low-Frequency Effect channel, for use with a sub-woofer) channels. All processing is done in the digital domain. Not all Dolby Digital discs contain six (5.1) channels of information. Dolby Surround/Dolby Pro Logic Dolby Surround records four channels of front and rear audio in two channels in a way that allows a decoder to recover the original four channels for playback. Because the audio is recorded in two channels, it can be played back naturally by a two-channel stereo system. Dolby Pro Logic introduces directional circuits in decoder-side processing (increasing the level of specific channels and lowering the level of silent channels) for greater spatial perspective, and adds a center speaker used primarily for dialog. The result is enhanced channel separation. Down-mix Internal stereo mix of multichannel surround audio by a DVD player. The down-mix signals are output from stereo output connectors. DTS A Digital Surround audio encoding format configured with six (5.1) channels, similar to Dolby Digital. It requires a decoder, either in the player or in an external receiver. DTS stands for Digital Theater Systems. Not all DTS discs contain six (5.1) channels of information. Dynamic range The difference between the loudest and softest sounds. Interlaced scanning In a conventional video system, a picture is shown on the display monitor in between lines of two halves. The Interlaced scanning system places lines of the second half of the picture in-between lines of the first half of the picture. JPEG A popular file format for still image compression and storage. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. There are three sub-types of the JPEG format as follows. • baseline JPEG: used for digital cameras, the web, etc. • progressive JPEG: used for the web • lossless JPEG: an old type, rarely used now Linear PCM audio PCM stands for “pulse code modulation.” Linear PCM is the usual method for digitally encoding audio without compression, and is used for the audio tracks on DVD VIDEO discs, Audio CDs, etc. MP3 MP3 is an audio data compression format, which stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3. Using MP3, you can achieve a data reduction of about 1:10. NTSC (National television system committee) A black and white and color television system format used in the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico and Japan. PAL (Phase Alternation by Line) A color television system format used extensively in Western Europe. PBC PBC stands for “Playback control” and is a method of controlling disc play for Video CDs (VCD). You are able to interact with the disc through menus. Progressive scanning Progressive scanning displays all the horizontal lines of a picture at one time, as a single frame. A progressive scanning DVD player converts the interlaced (480i) video from DVD into progressive (480p) format for connection to a progressive display. It dramatically increases the vertical resolution. S-video A video signal which improves picture quality over standard composite connections. Used on Super VHS, DVD, high end TV monitors, etc. Track The smallest division on SVCD, Video CD and Audio CD discs. WMA WMA is an abbreviation of “Windows Media Audio,” and is an audio data compression format developed by Microsoft Corporation. Sound quality of data compressed using WMA is the same as that of MP3, though the WMA file size is smaller than that of MP3.
