Player. The next two characters (27 or 18 in the examples above) indicate the player series or model number. The CLD-V2600 will return 27 as the next two digits; the CLD-V2400 will return 18. The last two digits (XX) represent the player version number and they are updated periodically as running changes are made to the players.
Integer Explanation: Contents of the communication control register (CCR) are rewritten. For the CLD-V2600 and the CLD-V2400, the Automatic Status can be selected ON or OFF. When Automatic Status is ON the Player returns an “R” upon execution of a command, when it is OFF, it does not.

LaserBarcode 2 Commands & Logo As described in Section 3.3.3 of this manual, the LaserBarcode Standard was officially revised by the LaserBarcode Association on August 1, 1992, to create the new LaserBarcode 2 (LB2) standard command set. LB2 contains all of the barcode functions available with the original LaserBarcode standard command set as well as new barcode functions that provide for Time Searches and Time Segment plays on CLV discs, slow motion playback on CAV discs, and access to digital audio.
LaserBarcode 2 compatible. (See Player Compatibility Chart, Appendix F.) LaserBarcode 2 barcodes may be created using Pioneer’s Barcode preparation software: The Bar’n’Coder for the Macintosh, BarKode for Windows or LaserBarcode Tool Kit 2.0 for IBM PC and MS DOS compatible computers.
LaserBarcode 2 Commands & Logo (cont.) Each LaserBarcode command is listed below with a description of how the player responds when the code is scanned and transmitted to the player. Remember, all LB2 commands are supported only by players that carry the LB2 logo. Players that carry the original LaserBarcode logo will play LB2 “Original Commands”, but do not support LB2 “Extended Commands”.
LaserBarcode 2 Commands & Logo (cont.) Original Independent Commands (LB & LB2) (Continued from previous page) he final two original independent LaserBarcode commands are designed for use in barcode development and testing. The Debug On and Debug Off commands allow the barcode developer to test printed barcodes to determine their accuracy.
Note: The LB2 standard defines a range for each slow motion setting. The playback speeds described in the previous sections relate to the performance of Pioneer players only. Playback may vary depending on the manufacturer of a particular player. The LB2 format allows the following range of speeds: Slow Forward or Reverse 1 = 1/4 to 1/3 speed;...

CLD-V2600 & CLD-V2400 Internal Player Controls CLD-V2600 & CLD-V2400 Control Blocks The following control blocks are used within the CLD-V2600 & CLD-V2400. 1.) Communication control block 2.) Player control block 1) Communication control block The communication control block is divided into eleven units. It analyzes commands sent via various input methods, and executes the commands.
The unit consists of an input command data buffer and an output status data buffer. Character Generator Thboth the CLD-V2600 & the CLD-V2400 can generate character signals to be superimposed on the video signals displayed by the players. Character data is sent from command processors to the character generator.
