ther the NTSC or PAL video formats, output-  
ting the correct video signal as set by the back-  
panel NTSC/PAL switch.  
Digital Audio Formats  
About Discs  
This section covers basic information on the  
types of discs that can be played in the  
RDV-1060.  
DVD and CD discs can be encoded with sev-  
eral different digital audio formats. Generally,  
the type of digital audio encoding is indicated  
on the disc packaging.  
Disc Structure  
Dolby Digital. A digital surround format  
that may contain as many as five discrete  
audio channels plus an LFE (low frequency  
effects) channel (referred to as 5.1 chan-  
nel surround). Particularly for older  
soundtracks, Dolby Digital may be used  
to record a 2.0 channel stereo soundtrack  
with Dolby Surround matrix encoding.  
Disc Formats  
Each type of disc has its own organization,  
allowing you to locate various portions of the  
program recorded on the disc. Depending on  
the type of disc, these may be called Titles,  
Groups, Chapters, or Tracks:  
The RDV-1060 can play several different types  
of disc formats. Each of these formats has its  
own characteristics including digital sampling  
rate, disc structure, etc. The RDV-1060 auto-  
matically detects the type of disc and activates  
the proper playback parameters.  
DVD-Video:  
Title 1  
Title 2  
Look for the standard logo on the packaging  
for each of the following types of disc the  
RDV-1060 can play:  
DTS (Digital Theater Systems). An-  
other 5.1 channel digital surround format  
similar to Dolby Digital, but somewhat  
different encoding characteristics. Also plays  
the DTS 96/24 used on DTS music discs.  
Chapter 1  
Chapter 2  
Chapter 1  
Chapter 2  
A DVD-Video disc is comprised of Titles and  
each title may be divided into Chapters. For  
example, a DVD-Video disc may contain sev-  
eral movies, each with its own Title number,  
and each movie may be divided into several  
Chapters. In a DVD-Video karaoke disc, each  
song usually has its own title number and does  
not have Chapters.  
DVD Video  
DVD Audio  
Video CD  
SVCD  
MPEG. Another compressed digital for-  
mat. MPEG Multichannel signals are only  
available at the analog outputs.  
DVD-Audio and MLP (Meridian Loss-  
less Packing). A high quality digital  
format for DVD-Audio with the compres-  
sion ratio of about 2:1 supporting up to  
192kHz sampling rate and 24-bit resolu-  
tion, allowing the PCM signal to be recre-  
ated without loss. Some content may only  
be available at the analog outputs.  
DVD-Audio:  
Group 1  
Group 2  
Track 1  
Track 2  
Track 3  
Track 1  
Track 2  
LPCM (Linear PCM). Uncompressed digi-  
tal audio, the format used on CDs and most  
studio masters.  
A DVD-Audio disc contains Groups, with each  
group divided into Tracks. Some DVD-Audio  
discs also contain a Bonus Group that can only  
be played back by entering a Key Number  
password.  
Audio CD  
MP3 (MPEG 1, Layer 3). Compressed  
2-channel digital audio, a format often used  
for music on recordable CD-R and CD-RW  
discs.  
NOTE: The RDV-1060 can play recorded MP3  
and JPEG files from most CD-R, CD-RW,  
DVD-R, and DVD+R discs. The unit can only  
play the audio content on CD-EXTRA, CD-  
G, and CD-TEXT discs. The RDV-1060 can-  
not play DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, CD-ROM  
and DVD+/–RW discs.  
Most DVD-Audio discs include other informa-  
tion in addition to audio, such as still pictures,  
movies and text.  
The RDV-1060 automatically detects the type  
of digital audio signal encoded on the disc  
and activates the proper processing circuitry.  
An indicator in the front panel display illumi-  
nates to show the type of digital audio.  
Audio CD:  
Track 1  
Track 2  
Track 3  
NOTE: If you use the RDV-1060 with a Dolby  
Digital/DTS surround processor, you would  
generally use the decoders built into the sur-  
round processor, rather than those in the DVD  
player. In this case, connect the DVD player  
to the processor with a digital audio cable  
and activate the digital input on the proces-  
sor. An unprocessed digital bitstream is sent  
to the surround processor for decoding.  
DVD Region Codes  
An Audio CD, Video CD or SVCD simply  
contains Tracks.  
DVD-Video discs are encoded with region  
codes which also appear on the packaging:  
2 3  
4 5  
1 2 3  
4 5 6  
ALL  
2 5  
2
A disc can only be played if its region code  
matches the code printed on the back-panel  
of the RDV-1060.

RDV-1060 DVD Audio/Video Player  
12  
To a stereo preamp, processor, or TV  
set with 2-channel inputs, use the  
RDV-1060’s STEREO outputs . Connect the  
STEREO L output to the left audio input of the  
TV or receiver and the STEREO R output to the  
right audio input.  
Video Connections  
Connections  
Video outputs send the video signal from  
the DVD player to the surround processor or  
TV set. Three types of video output connec-  
tions are provided – RCA composite video,  
S-Video, and Component Video. Choose the  
type of video output connection that best  
matches the inputs on your TV or surround  
processor. Component Video or SCART con-  
nections must be used with HDTV television  
monitors to use the RDV-1060’s progressive  
scanning feature.  
This section describes the back-panel connec-  
tions and settings that must be made during  
installation of the RDV-1060. These include the  
power connection, output connections to the  
surround processor, selecting of the video stan-  
dard (PAL or NTSC) for your location, 12V Trig-  
ger inputs for remote turn-on of the unit, and  
optional external IR remote connections.  
Typically, the STEREO outputs send a matrix  
encoded stereo signal to the surround proces-  
sor. See the Speaker Setup topic in the Setup  
section of this manual for information on match-  
ing the analog output signal to your preamp  
or processor.  
NOTE: To prevent loud noises, make sure the  
DVD player and the rest of the system is turned  
off when making connections.  
NOTE: The analog audio outputs are typically  
used only with DVD-Audio discs or with sur-  
round processors or TV sets that do not have  
Dolby Digital or DTS processing. If your pro-  
cessor has Dolby Digital and DTS decoding,  
you will not need to make any analog audio  
connections to play video DVDs; one digital  
connection (described in the following sec-  
tion) will suffice.  
NOTE: In most systems, only one video con-  
nection need be made. However, there is no  
harm in making multiple connection types (for  
example, Component Video outputs to an  
HDTV and S-Video outputs for use with an  
analog TV or VCR).  
Audio Connections  
Analog audio outputs supply up to 5.1  
channels of decoded analog audio. These out-  
puts take advantage of the RDV-1060’s abil-  
ity to decode many audio formats. Use these  
connections when connecting the RDV-1060  
to a receiver or TV set that does not have its  
own Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, or for  
passing multichannel DVD-Audio PCM signals  
to the analog inputs of a receiver.  
Composite Video Output  
See Figure 3  
Digital Outputs  
Connect the composite TV MONITOR output  
to the corresponding composite video input  
on your TV or surround processor, using ap-  
propriate video cables.  
See Figure 4  
The RDV-1060 provides digital outputs (with  
both optical and coaxial connectors). These  
digital outputs provide a digital audio bitstream,  
which must be used with a processor that ac-  
cepts a digital signal and has its own Dolby  
Digital or DTS decoding.  
Digital audio outputs supply unprocessed  
digital audio signal for use with the surround  
processor’s decoding and D/A converters. This  
is the preferred option with a Dolby Digital/  
DTS surround processor.  
S-Video Output  
See Figure 3  
Connect the S-Video TV MONITOR output to  
the corresponding S-Video input on your TV  
or surround processor, using an appropriate  
S-Video cable.  
The RDV-1060 provides an optical output and  
a coaxial output for the digital audio signal.  
Use whichever you prefer. If you choose the  
optical connection, remove the plastic cap pro-  
tecting the connector and save it for future use.  
Analog Audio Outputs  
See Figure 5 and 6  
A set of RCA jacks, labeled AUDIO OUTPUT  
sends either six channels of decoded analog  
audio (front left, front right, rear left, rear right,  
center, and subwoofer) or two channels of  
analog audio from the RDV-1060 to the ana-  
log audio inputs of an audio surround proces-  
sor, preamplifier, integrated amplifier, receiver  
or TV set.  
Component Video Outputs  
Connect the appropriate cable (optical or 75  
ohm coaxial) from the DIGITAL OUT connec-  
tors of RDV-1060 to a digital input on the sur-  
round processor.  
See Figure 3  
Connect the three Component Video TV MONI-  
TOR outputs to the corresponding Component  
Video inputs on your TV or surround proces-  
sor, using three Component Video cables.  
Make sure that you connect the Y output to  
the Y input, the PB output to the PB input, and  
the PR output to the PR input.  
See the Audio Setup topic in the Setup sec-  
tion of this manual for important information  
on matching the digital output signal to your  
processor.  
To a surround processor with 5.1 chan-  
nel inputs, use RCA audio cables to con-  
nect the six outputs  
to the matching multi-  
SCART connector  
channel input on the surround processor (L to  
front left, R to front right, LS to left surround,  
RS to right surround, C to center channel, SUB  
to subwoofer, etc.)  
The back panel of the RDV-1060 has a 21-  
pin SCART connector. This connection is widely  
used on TV sets and audio/video equipment  
in Europe. The SCART output carries stereo

(left/right) analog audio, composite video,  
component video, or RGB video signals. If you  
are connecting the RDV-1060 directly to a  
SCART equipped TV, this should be the only  
connection you need to make. Simply plug an  
appropriate SCART cable into the output on  
the RVD-1060 and an input on your TV.  
EXT REM IN  
OPERATING THE  
RDV-1060  
The EXT REM IN receives IR command codes  
relayed from an infrared receiver (Xantech,  
etc.) or from the matching EXT REM OUT con-  
nector on Rotel surround processors. This feature  
may be useful when the unit is installed in a  
cabinet and its front-panel IR sensor is blocked.  
Consult your authorized Rotel dealer for in-  
formation on IR receivers and the proper wir-  
ing of a cable with 3.5 mm plugs to fit the  
connector.  
The RDV-1060 can be operated from the front-  
panel or the remote control.  
To guide you through the operation of the  
RDV-1060, this section of the manual starts  
with explaining the basic layout and function  
of the front panel and the remote control. Then,  
we explain the basic operations such as turn-  
ing the unit on and off, playing DVDs, etc. Fol-  
lowing that is explanation of more advanced  
playback options and additional features. The  
last section of the manual (Setup) details op-  
tions that may be selected during initial con-  
figuration of the unit, many of which will be  
set once and left untouched.  
NOTE: For 5.1 channel Dolby Digital/DTS sur-  
round, you will also need to use the DIGITAL  
OUTPUT connection or the 5.1 channel ana-  
log audio connections from the RDV-1060 to  
your surround processor.  
12V TRIGGER Connections  
NTSC/PAL Switch  
The RDV-1060 can be activated by a remote  
12 volt trigger signal from a Rotel surround  
processor. This connection provides an input  
to receive the 12 volt trigger signal.  
Various regions of the world use two differ-  
ent video standards. The US uses the NTSC  
standard while most countries in Europe use  
the PAL standard. The output of the RDV-1060  
must be set to match the standard your TV  
accepts. Put the switch in the left position for  
use with NTSC video equipment. Put it in the  
right position for the use with PAL equipment.  
The trigger input accepts any control signal  
(AC or DC) ranging from 3 volts to 30 volts.  
When a cable is connected to the input and  
a trigger signal is present, the DVD player is  
activated. When the trigger signal is interrupted,  
the unit goes into standby mode. The front panel  
indicator light remains lit, but the display goes  
dark and the unit will not operate. Consult your  
authorized Rotel dealer for information on the  
12V TRIGGER and the proper wiring of a plug  
to fit the connector.  
Throughout this manual, numbers in gray boxes  
refer to the RDV-1060 illustration at the front  
of this manual. Letters refer to the RR-DV94 re-  
mote illustration. When both appear, the func-  
tion is found on both the RDV-1060 and the  
remote. When only one appears, that func-  
tion is found only on the RDV-1060 or the re-  
mote.  
NOTE: This switch only relates to the hardware  
configuration of your TV set and other com-  
ponents. Regardless of the setting, the  
RDV-1060 can play DVD discs encoded in  
either format, converting the signal to the for-  
mat selected with the NTSC/PAL switch.  
On-Screen Display  
NOTE: When using the 12V Trigger feature,  
leave the POWER button in the ON position.  
The RDV-1060 displays icons, status indica-  
tors, and interactive menus on the TV moni-  
tor Many of these screens are used to set up  
preferences and activate advanced features  
of the unit. Others offer information and choices  
useful during normal operation of the unit.  
Other Connections  
Computer I/O  
AC Power Input  
The RDV-1060 can be operated from a com-  
puter with audio system control software from  
third-party developers. This control is accom-  
plished by sending operating codes from the  
computer via a hard-wired RS-232 serial con-  
nection.  
It is best to plug the RDV-1060 directly into a  
2-pin polarized wall outlet. Avoid the use of  
extension cords.  
NOTE: The default language for all RDV-1060  
On-Screen Displays can be changed. See the  
General Setup topic in the Setup section of  
this manual.  
Your RDV-1060 will automatically configure  
itself for the proper AC line voltage ranging  
from 110 volts to 240 volts at 50/60Hz. No  
setting is required to match the unit to your  
local voltage.  
The COMPUTER I/O input provides the nec-  
essary network connections on the back panel.  
It accepts standard RJ-45 8-pin modular plugs,  
such as those commonly used in 10-BaseT UTP  
Ethernet cabling.  
Status Indicators  
During operation of the unit, various status  
indicators appear on screen such as NO DISC,  
LOADING, PLAY, PAUSE, etc. These informa-  
tion displays are self-explanatory.  
Plug the supplied cord into the AC INPUT re-  
ceptacle on the back of the unit. After all con-  
nections have been made, plug the cord into  
an appropriate AC wall outlet.  
For additional information on the connections,  
cabling, software, and operating codes for  
computer control of the RDV-1060, contact your  
authorized Rotel dealer.  
NOTE: If you are away from home for an ex-  
tended period of time, it is a sensible precau-  
tion to unplug your audio/video components.

To activate progressive scan, press the  
P-SCAN button on the remote while playback  
is stopped. The P-SCAN indicator LED lights  
on the front panel while in progressive scan

the button again.  
Selecting a Scene Angle  
Advanced Features  
Some DVD-Video discs have scenes that can  
be viewed from multiple user-selectable cam-  
era angles. Discs with multiple angles may  
provide menu screens for angle selection.  
Alternatively, you can select different angles  
(if available on the disc) by pressing the ANGLE  
button on the remote during playback. An icon  
appears on screen indicating which  
The RDV-1060 provides several advanced  
features for controlling the audio/video con-  
tent displayed during playback. These include  
progressive scan, zooming, changing the scene  
angle on DVD-Video discs, selecting alternate  
languages for the audio portion of DVD pro-  
grams, and selecting subtitle languages on DVD  
programs. This section of the manual describes  
these features.  
DVD-Video discs can be classified into two types;  
film source and video source (Some DVD-Video  
discs contain both film source and video source  
material). Film sources are recorded as 24-frame  
per second information, while (NTSC) video  
sources are recorded as 30-frame per second  
information. The progressive scan circuitry in  
the RDV-1060 can be set to recognize film-type  
material and activate 3:2 reverse pulldown  
interpolation for the best picture. See the Pic  
Mode topic in the Setup section of this manual  
for more information on optimizing progres-  
sive scanning.  
angle is selected and how many angles are  
available. Pressing the button repeatedly steps  
through the available angles.  
Progressive Scan (NTSC only)  
When the Angle Mark feature is turned on in  
the configuration of the unit, an icon  
Images appear on a TV monitor by rapidly  
displaying a series of horizontal scan lines.  
The conventional method for displaying these  
lines is interlaced scanning. Half of the hori-  
zontal lines are displayed followed by the other  
half, the two groups visually merging to form  
a single video image. Interlaced scanning is  
always used in the PAL video standard and  
has been the standard for all analog NTSC  
video in a format referred to as 480i.  
appears on screen when alternate angles are  
available, informing you that multiple angles  
are available for a scene and that the ANGLE  
button can be used. See the General Setup  
topic in the Setup section of this manual for  
information on the Angle Mark setting.  
Zoom  
NOTE: A hand icon on screen indicates that  
this feature is not available on the current disc.  
When playing a video disc, the RDV-1060 can  
zoom in to enlarge a section of the picture to  
1.5 or 2 times its original size. The zoom feature  
is available for full-motion video during play-  
back or for still-frame pictures while the unit  
is paused. While zoomed, you can move the  
displayed image up, down, left, or right to view  
the desired portion of the full image.  
HDTV-ready digital TVs are capable of display-  
ing a larger number of scan lines than offered  
by standard 480i signals. To take advantage  
of HDTV monitors, the RDV-1060 offers pro-  
gressive scanning which uses advanced digital  
interpolation to combine two frames of stan-  
dard interlaced video into a 480p signal with  
480 lines displayed at one time for a flicker-  
free, high-density picture.  
Selecting Audio Tracks  
Some DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, and Video CD/  
SVCD discs have audio tracks recorded in  
alternate languages, alternate audio formats
