Quick Setting of Video Output Mode

The MODE button of the RC allows quick setting of video output mode without entering the setup menu. This type of video output configuration may be required in case after connecting your player to a TV/ monitor/projector you see no picture on the screen.

After pressing the MODE button you will enter the quick video setting mode. In this mode, pressing one of the digit buttons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 switches to one of the following video output modes respectively:

  1. Composite/Component, PAL
  2. Composite/Component, NTSC
  3. Digital A/V output, 480i, 60 Hz
  4. Digital A/V output, 720p, 60 Hz
  5. Digital A/V output, 1080i, 60 Hz

To exit the quick video setting mode after successful settings, press ENTER on your RC.

After pressing the MODE and a digit button please wait for up to 15 sec. before the new video mode is settled.

The 5 listed video modes are provided only to ensure that you can quickly set up some usable video mode for any type of video connection you are using, regardless the previous settings of your player.

After getting a picture on the screen with one of these modes, please go to Setup menu and choose the most appropriate video output and resolution.

NOTE: During a video playback, the MODE button is deactivated. To change parameters of video output, stop playback by pressing the STOP button. In case of any problems, to make sure that the playback is stopped and you are in the file browser mode, switch the player off and then on, and wait until the player boots completely for up to 60 sec. Refer to the "Standby Mode" section.

Setup Menu Sections

Setup / General

This section descrbes selection of general interface language and timeout for the screen saver activation.

Setup / Video

In this section you will find settings of video output type (Digital A/V output or analog) and adjusting of video resolution on selected output.

  • The selected resolution will be used by default for all media files.
  • Read carefully the manual for your TV/monitor/projector. Some video modes may not be supported by your equipment.
  • In case of using the Digital A/V output connection, depending on through Digital A/V support in your TV/monitor/ projector, intermediate Digital A/V output equipment (if any) and the player, some video modes may not be available or may function improperly. In this case, use other video modes or other connection type.
  • To have the best picture quality, it is recommended to use an Digital A/V output connection. Refer to the "Connection to TV/Monitor/Projector via Digital A/V Input" section.

Setup / Audio

This section of the setup menu allows to set the connection type of relevant audio equipment.

Digital audio output mode: you may switch the mode of digital optical output:

  • PCM (Pulse Code Modulation, forced decoding): a mode in which the original sound track, i.e. Dolby Digital or DTS, is converted (decoded) to the Pulse Code form. It is supported by decoders of virtually any up-to-date audio equipment. But this mode is only recommended in case your AV receiver does not support full decoding of multichannel sound of above formats, or the audio subsystem of a TV set connected via Digital A/V cable is used instead of a home theater system.
  • Original (Bitstream): a mode in which the original sound track, i.e. Dolby Digital or DTS, is transmitted to an external decoder in its original, encoded, form. Refer to the "Transmission of Digital Audio to AV Receiver" section. Digital audio: turn on and off transmition of audio signal via Digital A/V output.

Blu-ray audio (for models having support for Blu-ray):

  • When set to "Best quality", and the "Digital audio output mode" set to "Bitstream", the primary audio track is sent to both S/PDIF (digital audio output) and Digital A/V output as a bitstream not depending on the presence of secondary audiotrack; secondary audio/video functions ("PiP") are disabled.
  • When set to "PiP support", secondary audio/video functions are enabled, and, to support these functions, the player is allowed to use the "decode" mode instead of the "bitstream" mode on digital audio outputs (so the audio quality may suffer, e.g. stereo PCM may be sent to the S/PDIF output, and multichannel PCM may be sent to the Digital A/V output).

Setup / Network

This section describes main parameters of connecting the media player to a LAN or Internet.

Connection: You may select a type of connection which will be used by default. It may be Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless (Wi-Fi) (optional). Alternatively, the connection may be disabled at all.

To use a Wi-Fi connection, you need to ensure that a Wi-Fi module (optional) is connected to the player. Please see here for the information on supported Wi-Fi modules: hardware compatibly .

Selection of networking mode:

  • Auto (DHCP): The media player is instructed to automatically receive an IP address and other parameters required for TCP/IP network.
  • Manually: All TCP/IP parameters are set by the user.
