3 Connect to the speaker terminals on the rear of the speakers in the same way. These speaker terminals can be under HAZARDOUS VOLTAGE. When you connect or disconnect the speaker cables, to prevent the risk of electric shock, do not touch uninsulated parts before disconnecting the power cord. Do not connect any of the supplied speakers to any other amplifier. This may result in malfunction or fire. This system has been designed for best performance when connected to the supplied speakers. We do not, therefore, recommend that you connect and use other speakers with this system. 1 Twist and pull off the protective shields on each wire.
Remove the supplied non-skid pads from the paper, and place them on the base satellite speakers as shown in the setup guide provided. Actual speakers supplied may differ from those shown.

See About the listening modes on page 37 for more on using the different listening modes with each speaker setup. Where you put your speakers in the room has a big effect on the quality of the sound. The following guidelines should help you to get the best sound from your system. The subwoofer can be placed on the floor. Ideally, the other speakers should be at about ear-level when youre listening to them. Putting the speakers on the floor (except the subwoofer), or mounting them very high on a wall is not recommended. For the best stereo effect, place the front speakers 23 m apart, at equal distance from the TV. Install the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen. When using a 5-spot setup, install the surround speakers slightly above ear level, if possible.

Handling discs

When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge. Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable. Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown in the diagram below.
CDs and Video CD/Super VCDs are divided into tracks.

DVD Video regions

All DVD Video discs carry a region mark on the case somewhere that indicates which region(s) of the world the disc is compatible with. Your DVD system also has a region mark, which you can find on the rear panel. Discs from incompatible regions will not play in this system. Discs marked ALL will play in any system. Wipe lightly from the center of the disc using straight strokes.
Dont wipe the disc surface using circular strokes.

XV-DV8.book 70

If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.
This system is designed for use with conventional, fully circular discs only. Use of shaped discs is not recommended for this product. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped discs.

Storing discs

Although CDs and DVD discs are more durable than vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight). Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharptipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc.

Check the DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW software disc boxes for additional compatibility information.
The Windows Media logo printed on the box indicates that this player can playback Windows Media Audio content. WMA is an acronym for Windows Media Audio and refers to an audio compression technology developed by Microsoft Corporation. WMA content can be encoded by using Windows Media Player version 7, 7.1, Windows Media Player for Windows XP, or Windows Media Player 9 Series.

Listening position

Front surround 3-spot setup This setup is ideal when rear surround speaker placement isnt possible or you want to avoid running long speaker cables in your listening area. Use this setup together with the Front Surround modes to take advantage of wall and ceiling reflections for a very realistic surround effect.
Surround left System unit Front left Surround right Subwoofer Front right
Center Front left Subwoofer Surround left Surround right Front right
Make sure that all speakers are securely installed (if you choose to install the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to secure it by suitable means). This not only improves sound quality, but also reduces the risk of damage or injury resulting from speakers being knocked over or falling in the event of external shocks such as earthquakes.

XV-DV88.book 13

The front, center and surround speakers supplied with this system are magnetically shielded. However, placing them extremely close to a television may result in color distortion on the screen. If this happens, move the speakers a little further away and switch off the television for 15 to 30 minutes. The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded and so should not be placed near a TV or monitor.
If you are unsure of the qualities and strength of the walls, consult a professional for advice. Pioneer is not responsible for any accidents or damage that result from improper installation.

Connecting to your TV

This system has three different kinds of video output that you can use to connect up your TV. Check the available inputs on your TV to see which you can use.
Wall-mounting the center and surround speaker system
(The HTD88DVD model supports wall mounting of the surround speakers only)

Before mounting

Remember that the speaker system is heavy and that its weight could cause the wood screws to work loose, or the wall material to fail to support it, resulting in the speaker falling. Make sure that the wall you intend to mount the speakers on is strong enough to support them. Do not mount on plywood or soft surface walls. Mounting screws are not supplied. Use screws that are suitable for the wall material and that will support the weight of the speaker.

HTD8DVD 5 mm

Do not connect a VCR between this system and your TV as DVD playback will be affected. Use the supplied video cable to connect the VIDEO OUT jack to a video input on your TV.

XV-DV88.book 33

Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for your system. The region number should be printed on the disc; check it against the region number of the system (which you can find on the rear panel). See also DVD Video regions on page 69. If the region number is OK, it may be that the disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc and look for signs of damage. See also Using and taking care of discs on page 69. Why wont the disc I loaded play? First check that you loaded the disc the right way up (label side up), and that its clean and not damaged. See Using and taking care of discs on page 69 for information on cleaning discs. If a disc loaded correctly wont play, its probably an incompatible format or disc type, such as DVD Audio or DVD-ROM. See Disc / content format playback compatibility on page 8 for more on disc compatibility. I have a widescreen TV so why are there black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when I play some discs? Some movie formats are such that even when played on a widescreen TV, black bars are necessary at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction. I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the system to show widescreen DVDs in pan & scan format, so why do I still get black bars top and bottom with some discs? Some discs override the display preferences of the system, so even if you have 4:3 (Pan & Scan) selected, those discs will still be shown in letterbox format. This is not a malfunction.

XV-DV88.book 43

Chapter 6
Some DVD discs restrict the use of some functions (random or repeat, for example). This is not a malfunction. When playing Video CD/Super VCDs, some of the functions are not available during PBC playback. If you want to use them, start the disc playing using a number button to select a track. Many features are not available when using unfinalized CD-R/RW discs. If you open the disc tray and load a DVD, Video CD/Super VCD or JPEG disc in the front-most position then press (play) (on the front panel), CD mode is canceled.
You can't switch on CD mode while playing a DVD or Video CD/Super VCD. Stop playback first. Although program play is not possible in CD mode, it is possible to program a playlist. When you start program play-back, however, CD mode is canceled. Repeat and random play is possible in CD mode (see Using repeat play on page 45 and Using random play on page 46).
Playing only CDs and WMA/ MP3 discs (CD mode)
Using this feature you can play only the CDs and WMA/MP3 discs loaded in the disc tray automatically skipping over any DVDs and Video CD/Super VCDs loaded. This may be useful if you have a mixture of discs loaded but only want to play music: you don't have to keep track of what kind of disc is where in the disc tray. 1 Press CD MODE (SHIFT + DISC SKIP) to switch CD mode on. The indicator on the front panel lights when CD mode is on. 2 Press (play) to start playback. The first CD loaded automatically starts to play. Once all the CD/WMA/MP3 discs loaded have played, playback automatically stops. To cancel the CD mode, press CD MODE (SHIFT + DISC SKIP) again.

Scanning discs

You can fast-scan discs forward or backward at various different speeds. 1 During playback, press or to start scanning. There is no sound while scanning DVDs and Video CD/Super VCDs, and no subtitles while scanning DVDs. 2 Press repeatedly to increase the scanning speed.

Watching NTSC on a PAL TV (MOD. PAL)
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. However, in some cases, the image may appear without color. If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you may not be able to watch NTSC discs because of picture 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 to PAL conversion.

TV format setting

The default setting of this system 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 regions 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).

Handling discs

When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge. Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable. Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown in the diagram below.

Screen sizes and disc formats
DVD-Video discs come in several different screen aspects, ranging from TV programs, which are generally 4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an aspect ratio of up to about 7:3. Televisions also come in different aspect ratios; standard 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.
Set to 4:3 (Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are shown with the left and right sides cropped. Although the picture looks larger, you dont actually see the whole picture.

Widescreen TV users

If you have a widescreen TV, the TV Screen setting (page 63) of this system should be set to 16:9 (Wide). When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format, you can use the TV controls to select how the picture is presented. Your TV may offer various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions that came with your TV for details. Please note that some movie aspect ratios are wider than 16:9, so even though you have a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in a letterbox style with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.
Please note that many widescreen discs override the systems settings so that the disc is shown in letterbox format regardless of the setting.
Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or either of the 4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in a distorted picture.
Selecting languages using the language code list
Some of the language options allow you to set your preferred language from any of the 136 languages listed in the Language code list on page 79. 1 Select Other Language.

Standard TV users

If you have a standard TV, the TV Screen setting (page 63) of this system should be set to 4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan&Scan), depending on which you prefer. Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen discs are shown with black bars top and bottom.
