How to Proceed in This 
Manual 


DVD is an incredible format that presents the highest 
quality digital audio and video available today. 
Because using the DVD player and DVDs may be 
confusing at first, following the order below should 
help you get through the important stages of getting 
set up SO you can start using your player as soon as 
possible. 


Get familiar with the player. 





Refer to the section ‘Before Using’ on page 8 to 
confirm that all the accessories were included with the 
player. If you are new to DVD, it might be beneficial for 
you to go through the ‘Names and Functions’ section 
starting on page 9 to get familiar with the parts and 
buttons on the main unit and remote control as they 
will be referred to throughout this manual. 


There is also a list of terms that can be found on page 
61 if you are having trouble understanding some of the 
terminology associated with DVD. 


Make the necessary connections. 


No entertainment system seems to be set up exactly 
the same way. The ‘Making Connections’ section 
starting on page 14 shows how video and audio 
connections may be made to suit your home 
entertainment system. 


Set up the necessary player 
menus. 





Before you can begin to enjoy the benefits of the DVD 
format, It is first necessary to set up the player to 
output the video and audio information that 
corresponds to your system. The section ‘Setting Up 
the Player’ starting on page 17 explains how to use the 
Setup Navigator, a function that automatically sets up 
the player corresponding to the answers given in a 
multiple-choice on-screen procedure. The Setup screen 
menus, described in the section starting on page 24, 
are also used in a number of other functions. Learning 
the procedure for operating these menus will make 
using this player much easier and more enjoyable. 


Play a disc. 





When all the connections and setups have been made, 
you are ready to play a DVD, Super VCD/Video CD, CD, 
or MP3 with the player. The section ‘Getting Started 
Using Your DVD Player’ starting on page 20 outlines 
the basic player operations. 


Enjoy the many features available. 


Once you are comfortable using the basic player 
functions, you are ready to take advantage of the 
various options DVD and this player have to offer. The 
section ‘Advanced Functions’ starting on page 39 
describes how to use the features available on many 
DVDs.

Setting Up the 
Player 





Setting the TV System (except 
for DV-533K Taiwanese model 


and DV-440) 


The default setting of this player is AUTO, and unless you 
notice that the picture is distorted when playing some discs, 
you should leave it set to AUTO. 

If you experience picture distortion with some discs, set the 
TV system to match your country or region's system. Doing 
this, however, may restrict the kinds of disc you can watch. 
The table below shows what kinds of disc are compatible 
with each setting (AUTO, PAL and NTSC).

to switch the TV system. 
The TV system changes as follows: 
AUTO + NTSC 
NTSC — PAL 
PAL — AUTO 
The display indicates the new setting. 


Note that you have to switch the player into standby 
before each change. 





About MOD. (Modulation) PAL 

e SHRINK 
Most models of the newly developed countdown PAL TV 
system detect 50 Hz (PAL)/60 Hz (NTSC) and automatically 
switch vertical amplitude, resulting in a display without 
vertical shrinkage. 

e If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you may 
not be able to view NTSC disc because the picture may 
roll. If the TV has a V-Hold control, adjust it until the picture 
stops rolling. On some TVs, the picture may shrink 
vertically, leaving black bands at the top and bottom of the 
screen. This is not a malfunction; it is caused by the NTSC 
— PAL conversion. 





Using the Setup Navigator 


The Setup Navigator has been designed to simplify the 
process of getting the DVD player ready to perform. 
Designed as a series of on-screen multiple-choice questions, 
the Setup Navigator automatically sets the audio, video, and 
language settings according to how the questions are 
answered. Once this procedure is complete, it will be 
possible to begin using the DVD player to enjoy DVDs. 

The procedure on this page describes the operations 
necessary to function within the Setup Navigator screens. A 
detailed description of the contents of each question that 
appears on the screen can be found on the following pages. 


When setting up for the first time 

some DVDs start playing automatically when loaded in the 
player. Because the Setup Navigator cannot be used If a disc 
is playing, it is recommended to set up the player using the 
Setup Navigator before loading a DVD for the first time. If a 
DVD has been loaded, be sure to press STOP @ before 
proceeding.

Setting the TV Screen Size 


— DVD/Super VCD 


The width-to-height ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, 
while the width-to-height ratio of wide screen and 
high-definition TVs is 16:9. This width-to-height ratio is 
called the aspect ratio. 

When viewing software recorded in different aspect 
ratios, the image's height to width ratio can be switched 
to match the TV or monitor being used. 

Make changes to the TV screen size in the [TV Screen] 
setting in the Setup screen Video 1 menu. Please note 
that changes to the [TV Screen] setting cannot be made 
when a disc is playing. Stop playback of the disc before 
attempting to make any changes.

Differences in screen sizes and DVD/Super 
VCD formats 


The number of screen size formats currently available 
can be somewhat confusing. If set incorrectly, the video 
presentation may not appear as it should. The following 
diagrams and descriptions are intended to help you set 
your TV screen size in a way that will allow you to fully 
enjoy the digital video of DVD/Super VCD. 

The settings in the [TV Screen] setting are perhaps 
most applicable when the DVD/Super VCD you are 
watching is programmed in the wide screen format. If 
you have a standard TV, select either [4:3 (Letter Box)] 
or [4:3 (Pan & Scan)] based on your personal 
preference. If you have a wide screen TV, select [16:9 
(Wide)]. 


Note 
When playing Super VCDs, even if [4:3 (Letter Box)] is 


selected in the [TV Screen] setting, the disc will be shown in 
Pan & Scan format.

set. Do not use such CDs. 





After using discs, store them upright 


After playing a disc, always remove it from the player 
and return it to its jacket. Then store it standing upright 
away from heat and humidity. 

e Store discs carefully. If you store discs at an angle, or 
stacked on top of each other, discs may become 
warped even when in their jackets. 

e Do not leave discs in locations such as the seat of a 
car, which may become excessively hot. 

e Do not fix labels or stickers to discs. The disc may 
become unplayable as a result. 

e Do not load more than one disc into the plaver. 


CAUTION WHEN USING THE DISC 
All rights reserved. 


Unauthorized public performance, broadcasting or 
copying is a violation of applicable laws. 


For Proper and Long Use of 
This Unit 





Do not move the unit during playback 

During playback, the disc rotates at high speed. Do NOT 
lift or move the unit during playback. Doing so may 
damage the disc. 





When moving the unit 


When changing places of installation or packing the unit 
for moving, be sure to remove the disc and return the 
disc table to its original position in the player. Then, 
press O STANDBY/ON and switch the power to 
standby. Check that the “--OFF--” indication on the 
display goes off, then disconnect the power cord. 
Moving this unit with the disc loaded may result in 
damage to this unit. 





Installation 


e Select a stable place to the side of a TV set or stereo 
system to be connected to the unit. 

e When using the unit with a stereo system, install the 
speakers a little bit away from the TV. 

e Do NOT install the unit on top of a TV or color monitor. 
Install the unit away from equipment that may be 
affected by magnetism, such as a cassette deck. 

e Do NOT place objects on top of the unit. 





Avoid installing in a place that is: 


e Exposed to direct sunlight 

e Exposed to humidity or where ventilation is poor 

e Extremely hot or cold 

e Exposed to vibration 

e Exposed to dust 

e Exposed to oily smoke, steam or heat (for example, a 
kitchen) 





Do not block vents 

Do NOT use the player on top of a long-fibered carpet, 
bed or sofa, and do not cover it with a cloth, etc. This 

will prevent heat radiation and could result in damage. 





Avoid heat 


Do NOT place the unit on equipment which generates 
heat, such as an amplifier. 

When installing the unit in a rack, place it on the lowest 
shelf possible (however, not where it is exposed to dust) 
and separated from the amplifier to avoid the heat 
generated by the amplifier or other audio equipment. 


CAUTION: WHEN PLACING THE UNIT IN A 
STEREO RACK WITH GLASS DOORS 


Be sure there is ample space between the unit and 
the glass doors when opening the disc table using 


the remote control. If the disc table opens against 
strong resistance, such as a closed glass door, 
damage to the unit may result. 





Condensation 


Moisture may form in the operating section of the player 
if the player is brought from cool surroundings into a 
warm room or if the temperature of the room rises 
suddenly. When this happens, the player's performance 
will be impaired. 

To prevent this, let the player stand in its new 
surroundings for about an hour before switching it on, or 
make sure that the room temperature rises gradually. 
Condensation may also form during the summer if the 
player is exposed to 
the breeze from an air 
conditioner. In such 
cases, change the E 
location of the player. N: ó 





Switch POWER to STANDBY when not using 


the unit 


Depending on the strength of the TV or radio broadcast 
signal, having the TV or radio on while 

power to the unit is on may result in —— 
stripes on the TV screen or noise. SO 
However, this is not a malfunction of 
this unit or the TV or radio. In such a 
case, switch the power of the unit to 
standby. 





Power-cord caution 


Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the 
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord 
when your hands are wet as this could cause a short 
circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of 
furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. 
Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. 
The power cords should be routed in such a way that 
they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power 
cord can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. 
Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it 
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized service 
center or your dealer for a replacement. 








Cleaning the player 


To clean the PLAYER, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. For 
stubborn dirt, wet a soft cloth with a mild detergent 
solution made by diluting one part detergent to 5 or 6 
parts water, wring well, then wipe off the dirt. Also use a 
dry cloth to wipe the surface dry. Do not use volatile 
liquids such as benzene and thinner which are harmful to 
the unit. 





Lens cleaner 


The player's pickup lens should not become dirty in 
normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction 
due to soiling, contact your nearest PIONEER authorized 
service center. Lens cleaners are commercially available, 
but special care should be exercised in their use since 
some may cause damage to the lens.

angles. When storing, wind the cords 
so that they have a diameter of at 
least 15 cm (6 in.). 

e When connecting, push all the way 
into the terminal. 

e Do not use cords with a length of 
over 3 m (9.9 feet). 

e |f moisture or dust has collected on the plug, wipe it 
with a soft cloth before connecting.

Terms 








Aspect ratio 


Aspect ratio refers to the length to height ratio of TV 
screens. The ratio of a standard TV is 4:3, while the ratio 
of a high-definition or wide TV is 16:9. The latter allows 
you to enjoy a picture with a wider perspective. 





Chapter number 


Chapter numbers are the numbers assigned to sections 
of a title on the disc, similar to chapters in a book. If the 
disc includes chapter numbers, you can locate the 
section you want very quickly using search and other 
functions. 


Component (color difference) video output 


The color signal of the TV is divided into the luminance 
(Y) signal and the color (PB and PR) signals and then 
output. In this way mutual interference of each signal is 
avoided. On a TV with component input jacks, these 
signals are synthesized to produce the picture. 





Condition memory 


“Condition” refers to the various mode settings, etc. On 
this player, various conditions, such as those set during 
playback, can be memorized. This function allows you to 
play back the same disc at any time without having to 
redo your preferred settings. 





Digital bitstream 


The bitstream does not refer to the audio signal, but 
rather to the digital data that, once converted, becomes 
the audio signal. The player outputs digital bitstreams via 
the digital optical or digital coaxial output. If the 
bitstream cannot be decoded by the connected AV 
amplifier etc., digital noise is produced. Digital bitstream 
formats compatible with different entertainment 
systems can be selected in the Setup screen Audio 1 
menu. 





Digital output (Coaxial) 


Output of the digital audio signal is transmitted 
electronically using a coaxial cable. Because the signal 
being transmitted is digital, connection must be made to 
the coaxial digital input of another component. Noise will 
be output if connected to the analog audio inputs as the 
digital signal cannot be decoded. 





Digital output (Optical) 

Normally, audio is converted to an electric signal and 
transmitted through an electric wire from the player to 
the amplifier, etc. Changing this signal to a digital signal 
and transmitting it through an fiber-optic cable is called 
optical digital output. Similarly, optical digital input 
receives digital signals from external units such as an AV 
amplifier or receiver. 





Multi-session 

A CD-R/RW that contains two or more ‘sessions’. Each 
session is a complete recording process, so each 
session is read as a complete disc. 





Dolby Digital 
Using a maximum of 5.1 channels of audio, this high 
quality surround system is used in many of the finer 


movie theaters around the world. DIO [potey] 


DIGITAL 





DTS 


DTS stands for Digital Theater System. DTS is a 
surround system different from Dolby Digital that has 
become a popular surround sound format for movies. In 
order to enjoy the benefits of DTS encoded discs, the 
digital output jack (either coaxial or optical) of this player 
needs to be connected to an AV amplifier or receiver or 
to a DTS decoder to be able to enjoy the 
surround sound of DTS audio. DTS audio is 
not output from the analog audio outputs.

Dynamic range 

Dynamic range refers to the difference between the 
maximum and minimum levels of the audio soundtrack 
as measured in decibels (dB). 

Compressing the dynamic range raises the minimum 
signal level and lowers the maximum signal level. This 
allows you to hear voices and other low level audio 
signals clearly while lowering strong audio signals like 
the sound of explosions. 





File extension 


A tag added to the end of a filename to indicate the type of 
file. For example, “.mp3" indicates an MP3 file. 


MP3 


MP3 (MPEG1 audio layer 3) is a compressed audio file 
format. Files are recognized by their file extension “.mp3”" or 
"MP3". 








MPEG 


Short for Moving Picture Experts Group. This is an 
international standard for compression of moving 
images. On some DVDs, digital audio has been 
compressed and recorded in this format. 





Multi-angle 

When you watch a TV program, you are watching the 
image filmed through the TV camera. Because of this, 
the picture is displayed on your TV from the viewpoint of 
the TV camera's position. In a TV studio, the image is 
filmed by many cameras at the same time, and one of 
those images is selected by the program director and 
transmitted to your TV. If all the filmed images were 
transmitted to your TV you would be able to select the 
camera image you want. Some DVD discs are recorded 
with the angles of more than one camera used for 
filming, and these can be selected using this player. 
These types of discs are called multi-angle discs.

Parental lock level 


This function was suggested by parents concerned 
about what type of media their children were able to 
watch. Parental lock restrictions are restrictions 
incorporated into titles which include scenes that 
parents may not wish their children to view. 


PCM 


PCM stands for Pulse Code Modulation and is digital 
audio. The digital audio of CDs is PCM. This player also 
has a function that converts Dolby Digital and MPEG 
digital bitstreams into PCM to enable you to listen to 
quality digital sound even without a special decoder. 


Playback Control (PBC) 


This refers to signals recorded on a Super VCD/Video CD 
(Version 2.0) enabling playback control. 

You can use menus recorded on discs with PBC for easy, 
interactive search for desired scenes, and playback. 

You can also enjoy viewing high-resolution/standard 
resolution still images. 











Regional restriction codes (region number) 


Regional restriction codes are built in to DVD players and 
DVD discs for each sales region. If the regional code of 
the DVD player does not match one of the regional 
codes of the DVD disc, playback is not possible. 

The region number can be found on the rear panel of the 
DVD player. The illustration below shows the regions 
and corresponding region numbers. 





Sampling Frequency 

When a sound wave is converted to a digital signal, the 
sound is sampled and converted to data at a specific 
frequency rate. For example, a signal with a 96 kHz 
sampling rate indicates that in one second, the analog 
signal was sampled 96000 times to produce the digital 
signal. 





Subtitle 


Subtitles are language titles superimposed on movies, or 
other media. Up to 32 different subtitle languages can be 
recorded on a DVD disc. The subtitle function can be 
used to select the language of your choice. 





S-video 

Connecting the S-video output on the player to a TV or 
monitor with S-video input via an S-video cable produces 
clearer picture reproduction by sending separate signals 
for the luminance and the color. These signals are then 
combined by the television to produce a better quality 
picture. 





System control 


When you connect this player via a cord with a mini plug 
to another Pioneer component such as a receiver or an 
amplifier bearing the fg] mark, you can control the player 
as though it were a component in a system. To control 
the player, point the player’s remote control at the 
component that the player is connected to, and not the 
player itself. 





Time number 


The time number corresponds to the elapsed playback 
time of a disc from its beginning. When using the time 
search function, use the time number to locate scenes 
that occur at the time selected. 





Title number 


DVD discs are divided into units referred to as titles, and 
titles are divided into chapters. Menu screens do not 
belong to any title. A disc which contains a movie may 
have only one title with many or no chapter divisions. 
Karaoke discs may have many titles, assigning a title to 
each song on the disc. 





TruSurround 


TruSurround is a simulated surround system which 
produces a surround sound effect from stereo speakers.

Note 


The specifications and design of this product are subject to 
change without notice, due to improvement. 

















Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ ve just 
purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now 
it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and 
excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and 
the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics 
Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by 
playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through 
loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion-and, 
most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing. 


Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort 
level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds 
“normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. 
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level 
BEFORE your hearing adapts. 


To establish a safe level: 

e Start your volume control at a low setting. 

e Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably 
and clearly, and without distortion. 


Once you have established a comfortable sound level: 
e Set the dial and leave it there. 


Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing 
damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening 
for a lifetime. 


We Want You Listening For A 
Lifetime 


Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a 
lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from 
loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this 
manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s 
Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged 
exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is 
included for your protection. 


Decibel 
Level Example 
30 Quiet library, soft whispers 
40 Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic 
50 Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office 
60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine 
70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant 
80 Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock 


at two feet. 


THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE 
DANGEROUS UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE 


90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower 
100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill 

120 Rock band concert in front of speakers, thunderclap 
140 Gunshot blast, jet plane 

180 Rocket launching pad
