Switching to broadcast program of your choice temporarily
Another convenient RDS service is called Enhanced Other Network. This allows the system to switch temporarily to a broadcast program of your choice (TA, NEWS, and/or INFO) from a different station except in the following cases: When you are listening to non-RDS stations (all AM MW stations, some FM stations and other sources). When the system is in standby mode. NOTE Before you start operations;
The Enhanced Other Network function is only applicable to preset stations.
The TEST signal is used for equipment test whether it can receive the Alarm signal correctly The TEST signal makes the system work in the same way as the Alarm signal does. If the TEST signal is received, the system automatically switches to the station broadcasting the TEST signal. While receiving the TEST signal, TEST appears on the display window.
7 How the Enhanced Other Network function actually works

Case 1

If there is no station broadcasting the program you have selected
The system continues tuning in to the current station. When a station starts broadcasting the program you have selected, the system automatically switches to the station. The indicator of received PTY code starts flashing. When the program is over, the system goes back to the previously tuned station, but the Enhanced Other Network function still remains activated. Case 2
If the FM station you are listening to is broadcasting the program you have selected
Press TA/NEWS/INFO repeatedly until the program type indicator (TA/NEWS/INFO) you want appears on the display window.

This system can also play finalized DVD-R/-RWs recorded in DVD VIDEO I_rmat. However, some discs may not be played because of their disc characteristics or recording conditions.
Discs you can play: DVD VIDEO Audio CD
If a DVD with an improper Region Code number is loaded, "REGION CODE ERROR!" appears on the TV screen and playback cannot start. About files (tracks) and folders (groups) on the disc This system can also play MP3, WMA, JPEG and MPEG4 files recorded on CD-Rs and CD-RWs. Files are sometimes grouped into folders on CD-Rs or CD-RWs by genre, album, etc. In this manual, "group" is also referred to as "folder", and "track" as "file". This system recognizes up to 150 files per group, and 99 groups per disc. The total number of files this system can detect on a disc is up to 1000.
