1. CONNECTING THE VIDEO OUT TO YOUR TV

Choose one of the three methods for connecting to a TV.

 

 

METHOD 1 : HDMI (BEST)

Connect the HDMI cable (not supplied) from the HDMI OUT jack on the back
of the Blu-ray Home Theater to the HDMI IN jack on your TV.

    Depending on your TV, certain HDMI output resolutions may not work.

    If an HDMI cable is connected from the player to a TV, the Blu-ray Home Theater’s output is set to HDMI automatically within 10 seconds. If you are using the Anynet + feature (manual page 46) and Component and HDMI are both connected, HDMI mode is automatically selected.

    When you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output resolution will automatically be set to the highest provided by the TV.

    If the HDMI cable is connected or removed during playback of a CD-DA, MP3 or JPEG file, the player will stop playing.

    After making the video connection, set the Video input source on your TV to match the corresponding Video output (HDMI, Component or Composite) on your Blu-ray Home Theater. See your TV owner's manual for more information on how to select the TV's Video Input source.

    If you have set the remote control to operate your TV, press the SOURCE button on the remote control and select HDMI as the external source of the TV.

METHOD 2 : Component Video (BETTER)

If your television is equipped with Component Video inputs, connect a Component video cable (not supplied) from the Component Video Output (Pr, Pb and Y) Jacks on the back of the Blu-ray Home Theater to the Component Video Input Jacks on your TV.

    You can select from a variety of resolution settings such as 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i, depending on the disc type.(manual page 44)

    The actual resolution may differ from the setting in the SETUP menu if both Component and HDMI cables are connected. The resolution may also be different depending on the disc. (manual page 44)

    After making the video connection, set the Video input source on your TV to match the corresponding Video output (HDMI, Component or Composite) on your Blu-ray Home Theater. See your TV owner's manual for more information on how to select the TV's Video Input source. See your TV owner's manual for more information on how to select the TV's Video Input source.

    • If you have set the remote control to operate your TV, press the SOURCE button on the remote control and select COMPONENT as the external source of the TV.

    In DVD playback, if both HDMI and Component jacks are connected and you select the Component 1080p, 1080i or 720p mode, the Display Setup menu will show the output resolution as 1080p, 1080i or 720p in the menu. The resolution is actually 480i.

METHOD 3 : Composite Video (GOOD)

Connect the supplied Video cable from the VIDEO OUT jack on the back of the Blu-ray Home Theater to the VIDEO IN jack on your TV.

    The VIDEO source is always output in 480i resolution regardless of the resolution set in the SETUP menu. (manual page 44)

    After making the video connection, set the Video input source on your TV to match the corresponding Video output (HDMI, Component or Composite) on your Blu-ray Home Theater. See your TV owner's manual for more information on how to select the TV's Video Input source.

    • If you have set the remote control to operate your TV, press the SOURCE button on the remote control and select VIDEO as the external source of the TV.

    Do not connect the unit through a VCR. Video signals fed through VCRs may be affected by copyright protection systems and the picture will be distorted on the television.
