Inputs and Outputs Notes
D/A Converter: This player uses a
54MHz/10-bit video digital-to-analog converter. This high-bit, high sampling D/A
converter helps to reduce digital artifacts to give you a better picture.
Audio D/A Converter:
This unit has a 96kHz/24-bit audio digital-to-analog converter.
Note: When the unit is
playing a DVD recorded with a sampling rate of 96kHz, the signal is
down-sampled and output through the Digital Out jacks as a 48kHz/16-bit
Progressive Scan Output: Progressive-scan
video has less flicker and fewer motion artifacts than the traditional
interlaced-scanning method, resulting in a superior picture. To take advantage
of this feature, you must have a television with component video inputs that
supports the progressive scanning mode. The component outputs on this
unit can be set to pass either progressive or interlaced video.
MP3 Playback: This unit will
play MP3 files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660
level 1/level 2 or Joliet formats. During
MP3 playback, you can use track repeat, but you cannot perform the following
functions: program play, shuffle play, fast forward, and rewind. The player can
recognize up to 100 albums per disc and will not play any albums beyond the
first 100. Of the first 100 albums, the unit will play no more than a combined
total of 200 albums and tracks.
Note: This unit does not
support ID3 tags.
JPEG Playback: This unit will
play JPEG files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660
level 1/level 2 or Joliet formats. All JPEG files on a disc can be
played back in a slide show. You can zoom in on any selected image (2x or 4x) or
rotate an image 90-degrees clockwise.
Virtual Surround: This function
lets you enjoy surround sound by using sound imaging to create virtual rear
Picture Zoom: The Picture Zoom

of the Zoom button increases the magnification for a total zoom of up to 4x. You
can also move the zoomed image around the screen.
Play: Resume play allows you to resume playback of a disc from
the point where you last stopped. The stopping point is cleared when the Stop
button is pressed more than once or the disc tray is opened.

you to store bookmarks on a disc that can be easily recalled. You can bookmark
up to 3 scenes at a time.
Recording Note: Internal
dubbing from DVD to VHS is not possible.
Quasi S-VHS Playback: This
feature allows you to play S-VHS recordings using a standard VHS VCR. When S-VHS
recordings are played, they are displayed with standard VHS resolution.
Whenever you want to record a TV program, all you need to do is locate the
"PlusCode" number, a number assigned to each program in the television
listings (newspaper, cable listing, TV Guide). Then, just enter the PlusCode
number of the program you want and the VCR is automatically programmed to record
Quickset Timer Dial:
The Dial Timer allows you to make timer recordings of programs and set the clock
without turning on your TV. Using the front-panel Dial Timer, you can set the
recording timer to record up to eight programs that will be broadcast within a
month. The recording start time and stop time can be set at one minute
Quick Timer Recording: After
you have started recording, you can have the VCR stop recording automatically
after a specified amount of time. You can choose from the following times: 0:30,
1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30, 3:00, 3:30, or 4:00.
Timer Recording: You can
program the VCR's timer to record up to 8 broadcasts, as far as a month in
advance. You can also record programs on a weekly or daily basis.
Auto Tape Speed: When you are
recording a program in SP mode and the remaining tape becomes shorter than the
remaining recording time, the tape speed is automatically changed to EP mode.
Index Function: The VCR
automatically marks the tape with an index signal at the point where each
Scan and Play: Using this
function, the VCR searches for an index mark and then plays the tape for
approximately 5 seconds. If you do not press the Play button, the VCR searches
for the next index mark and repeats the process until the end of the tape.
0:00:00 Point: To mark a point
on the tape that you want to find later, you can reset the tape counter to
0:00:00. The VCR will automatically fast-forward or rewind to the 0:00:00 point
on the tape counter.
Blank Search: Using this
feature, the VCR automatically searches for the beginning of a blank portion.
Auto Play: When the Auto Play
function is turned on, playback starts automatically when you insert a tape with
the safety tab removed.
Auto Repeat: This feature
allows you to play a tape repeatedly. Once a tape has finished playing, the VCR
rewinds the tape to the beginning and restarts playback automatically.
Multibrand Remote: The remote
is pre-programmed to fully operate this unit and the basic functions on other
brands of TVs. The remote keys glow-in-the-dark for easy nighttime operation.
Out: If you plan to connect the DVD/VCR to the TV using either the
S-Video or Component Video outputs, you will need to select which output you are
using in the "Video Out" section of the DVD Setup menu. The S-Video
and Component Video outputs cannot be used simultaneously, and they work only
during DVD playback; for VHS playback, the composite video or RF output
connections must be used.
DVD Outputs: The DVD video
signal is output through the RF, composite, S-video and component video outputs.
Rear-panel A/V Input: In
addition to the front-panel A/V input, the unit has an A/V input on the back
panel that consists of stereo RCA jacks and an RCA composite video jack.
