DVD Basics
Regional Coding
Both the DVD player and the discs are coded by region. These regional codes must match in order for the disc to play. If the codes
don’t match, the disc won’t play. This unit’s code is region 1. Discs with other regional codes can’t be played in this unit.
Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are two separate menu paths that you can use to access features: the disc’s menu
and the DVD’s status banner. Remember that a feature only works if the disc was programmed with that feature. For example, if you
choose subtitles, the subtitles only appear if the disc was created with subtitles.
The Disc menu – The disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD’s status banner. The contents of each disc’s
menu vary according to how the disc was created and what features are included. Sometimes a disc’s menu appears automatically
when you insert the disc, or you can access it by pressing the MENU button.
The DVD’s status banner – The status banner appears across the top of the screen when a disc is playing. It can only be accessed
while you are playing a disc. It’s turned on and off with the DISPLAY button on the remote.
