    Q3: Can HDMI (HDMI1, HDMI2) output to 2 unidentical TVs?

    Q4: Can both HDMI (HDMI1, HDMI2) output the same resolution?

    A4: This depends on the specifications of your TV. Once you set the resolution output, the Blu-ray Disc Player will determine the highest common resolution that each TV can support.

     

    Q5: When connecting to the TV via an amplifier, there is no picture on the TV screen.

    A5: If the connected amp or TV is not compatible with 4K, there is no picture on the TV screen when Output Video Resolution in Screen Settings of the Blu-ray Disc Player is set to 4K.

    In this case, try the following:

    • If the TV is not compatible with 4K:
      Set Output Video Resolution in Screen Settings to Auto.
    • If the amp is not compatible with 4K:
      Set Output Video Resolution in Screen Settings to Auto, or connect the Blu-ray Disc Player directly to the TV with an HDMI cable.

     

    Audio

    Q6: Will there be a difference in audio output format depending on whether the Blu-ray Disc Player is connected to the TV through an amplifier or without amplifier?

    • AIFF  
    • WAV

     

    Playback  

    Q9: Why did resume playback take around 4-6s before the picture appeared?

    A9: Because the transition process of output resolution takes time until the picture is normally output to the connected device.

     

    Q10: Can I change output from the amplifier speakers to the TV speakers during playback?

    A10: In the amplifier setting, choose TV output for audio, rather than the amplifier.
