DVD 6-channel playback
Using a DVD player or the like equipped with six (5.1) output channels
and the receiver, you can enjoy surround sound playback.
When you try to play a disc other than Dolby Digital such as CD, no
sound is produced or, noise may be heard. To avoid this situation, make
sure that you connect the component to the receiver's DVD/6ch INPUT
jacks through a surround processor which can decode the surround
signal you want to listen to.
Connecting a DVD player which can decode the surround signal itself
is also acceptable.
• Connect your DVD player to the DVD/6ch jacks of the receiver.
• Turn on all other components that will be used.
• Complete "Preparing for surround sound".
Select "DVD/6ch" as the input source.
• Use the INPUT SELECTOR knob to select DVD/6ch mode.
Select "6ch INPT" by pressing the INPUT MODE key.
Start playback of the DVD software.
Adjust the volume.
• It is not possible individually to adjust the volume level or sound
quality (SET UP, SOUND) of the separate channels when the
receiver is in the DVD/6ch mode. Adjust the volume with the
controls of the DVD player.
For the powered subwoofer, you can adjust the volume of the
subwoofer using the subwoofer's own volume control.

Midnight mode (Dolby Digital mode only)
When watching movies at night , you might not be able to raise the
volume as loud as normal. Midnight mode compresses the dynamic
range of previously specified parts of the Dolby Digital sound track (like
scenes with sudden increases in volume) to minimize the difference in
volume between the specified and non-specified parts. This makes it
easy to hear all of the sound track, even when listening at low volumes.
1 Press the SOUND key several times until "NIGHT" is displayed.
• This can be selected only if CD/DVD, DVD/6ch or VIDEO2 is
