Connection with a TV or Stereo
Do not insert the power cord plugs of the player and the
connected components until all of the components have
For details on the connection terminals and functions of
the TV, refer to its instruction manual.
The video output from the player should be connected
directly to the TV. If the video output is connected through
a VCR, the picture displayed on the TV may be disturbed
due to the copy protect function.
To Connect a TV
Video connection: Connect the VIDEO OUTPUT jack of
the player to the video input of the TV using the pro-
vided video cable.
S Video connection: If the TV has an S Video input con-
nector, connect the S VIDEO OUTPUT connector of
the player to it using the provided S Video cable.
¶ As S Video separates video signal into the luminance
signal (Y) and color signal (C), it can provide sharper
pictures than ordinary video connection.
Component video connection: If the TV has component
video input jacks, connect the Y, C
NENT VIDEO OUTPUT jacks of the player to the cor-
responding jacks on the TV using video cables.
¶ As component video separate video signal into the
luminance signal (Y) and color difference signals (C
), it can provide sharper image than the S Video
¶ Depending on the TV or video monitor in use, the
terminal names may be different from those used
with the player (Y/Pb/Pr or Y/B-Y/R-Y, etc.)
¶ When the TV in use is a HDTV or "Hi-Vision" TV,
connect the component video signals from the player
only to the DVD-compatible input jacks.
SCART connection (For Europe and U.K.): If the TV or
VCR has SCART connectors, connect the TV SCART or
VCR SCART connector of this unit to the TV or VCR
using SCART cables.
¶ The audio and video signals can be output using a
single cable. The signal output from the TV SCART
connector can be switched between composite video,
S Video and RGB. (The VCR SCART connector always
outputs composite video signals so its output signals
cannot be selected.)
¶ When the TV is connected through a VCR using
SCART connection, the picture displayed on the TV
may be disturbed due to the copy protect function.
¶ When using only the TV and VCR which are both
connected with the player using the SCART
connection, the signal from the VCR cannot be sent
to the TV if the player is switched off. (In this case, set
the player to the power standby mode.)
Audio connection: Connect the MIX LINE OUTPUT jacks
of the player to the audio input jacks of the TV using
the provided audio cables.
COMPONENT VIDEO OUTPUT switch: Use this switch
to switch the video display format (between Interlaced
and Progressive scanning). Be sure to unplug the power
cord from the power outlet before changing the posi-
tion of this switch.
¶ When using the Component Video Output, do not
set the "SCART OUTPUT SELECT" setting in the
"SET UP MENU" to "RGB". (For Europe and U.K.)
To Connect a Stereo System
Audio connection: Connect the MIX LINE OUTPUT jack
of the player to the audio input jacks of the connected
audio component such as a stereo system using the pro-
vided audio cables.
¶ When playing a disc containing MPEG multi-
channel audio recording, connect the stereo input
to the 6CH. OUTPUT L/R jacks and activate the
DOWN MIX function .
