Auto Channel Grouping Enjoy DVD movies that have the 5.1/6.1 audio converted to 7.1 channels. When a 5.1 channel mix is present, auto channel grouping will route the discrete information for surround left/right directly to surround left/right outputs while adding a new surround back left/right channel. When 6.1 channel mix is detected, auto channel grouping will route the discrete information for surround left/right directly to surround left/right output while the 6th channel is duplicated by both surround back channels (left/right). Dolby Pro Logic II Decoding Creating surround sound requires only a stereo source. Listening to the radio, a CD, or an old VCR tape in full surround sound. Anything stereo can be converted to digital signal and distributed to your front, surround, subwoofer, and center speakers.
Component Video Pass-Through In order to benefit from a progressive or satellite signal, you must use the component video inputs and outputs. This utilizes 3 cables (red, green and blue) to assure proper color separation while more information passes to the display source. Passing these signals through your receiver enables the user to simply switch the function on their receiver, and not worry about changing any settings on the TV.

Decoding the input audio signal automatically
In this mode, the receiver automatically detects the type of audio signal being input (Dolby Digital, DTS, standard 2 channel stereo, etc.) and performs the proper decoding if necessary. This mode presents the sound as it was recorded/ encoded, without adding any surround effects. However, if there are no low frequency signals (Dolby Digital LFE, etc.) it will generate a low frequency signal for output to the sub woofer.
Press A.F.D. repeatedly to select A.F.D. AUTO.
x PLII MUSIC (PRO LOGIC II MUSIC)
Performs Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode decoding. This setting is ideal for normal stereo sources such as CDs.

x NEO6 MUSIC
Performs DTS Neo:6 Music mode decoding. This setting is ideal for normal stereo sources such as CDs.
The receiver automatically detects the type of audio signal being input and performs the proper decoding if necessary.
If you connect a sub woofer
When the audio signal is 2 channel stereo or if the source signal does not include a LFE signal, the receiver generates a low frequency signal for output to the sub woofer. However the low frequency signal is not generated when Neo:6 Cinema or Neo:6 Music is selected.

Clear each macro step individually. In step 3, Press M1 (TV/SAT) when the macro setting is M1. Press M2 (TAPE) when the macro setting is M2. The IR code is cleared. The indicator lights up twice slowly, then the remote automatically exits the macro setting mode.
To start macro play
Press M1 (TV/SAT) or M2 (TAPE) while the ALT indicator turns on.
If the Macro Play function does not work properly, program a delay between each operation. See To delay the output of an IR code.

Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or benzine. If you have any question or problem concerning your receiver, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On power sources
Before operating the receiver, check that the operating voltage is identical with your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate at the rear of the receiver. The receiver is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the receiver itself has been turned off. If you are not going to use the receiver for a long time, be sure to disconnect the receiver from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord. (Models of area code U, CA only) One blade of the plug is wider than the other for the purpose of safety and will fit into the wall outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer. AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.
