MP3/WMA Playback: Discs
containing MP3 files should be recorded at a bit rate between 8 and 320 kbps.
WMA files should be recorded at a bit rate of 32 to 256 kbps. The CD-R physical
format should be ISO 9660. The total number of files in a folder should be less
than 650 files.
JPEG Playback: It is
recommended that JPEG image files of less than 5 million pixels be recorded onto
CDs or DVDs to avoid long file loading times. Like MP3 and WMA, no more than 650
files should be in any given folder. You can zoom in 2 steps (4x and 16x)
and move around the image while zoomed in. Music files on the disc can be played
back at the same time as the photo files. (The zoom function and music/picture
playback are not available when the resolution is set to 720p, 1080i or 1080p.)
Black Level Expansion: You
can turn on/off the unit's Black Level Expansion (B.L.E.) to select the black
level of playback. When on, the black level is expanded, with a 0 IRE cutoff.
When off, the black level is standard with a 7.5 IRE cutoff.
Parental Control: You can limit
the playback of certain rated DVDs based on their content. When the parental
control function is "locked", you can select a rating of 1 (most restrictions)
to 8 (least restrictive). When the function is "unlocked," parental control is
not active, and the disc plays in full. Parental Control is protected by a
Dynamic Range Control: When
watching a DVD, you can compress the dynamic range of the audio output, allowing
you to listen to a movie at a lower volume without losing sound clarity. The DRC
can be turned on or off as desired.
Markers: You can start playback
from up to nine memorized points. You can set a marker at a point on the DVD
where you'd like to quickly return. After markers are set on the disc, you can
search for a specific marker by number, and begin playback from that point.
Last Scene Memory: The player
memorizes the last scene from the last disc that is viewed. The last scene
remains in memory even if you remove the disc from the player or switch off the
player. If you load a disc that has a memorized scene, the player automatically
recalls that scene.
Remote Control: The supplied
remote control can operate the DVD player, as well as TVs made by LG/GoldStar,
Zenith, Samsung, Sony, and Hitachi. You can control the input source, volume,
and power of TV.
