Very clear scan, I recommend it. Definitely a must have for any 3362 owner.
Alpine could have written a slightly more complete manual, though. It's already pretty huge, but the unit has so many functions, I feel some more explanation would have been better.
Yamaha's manual of their comparable YDSP-1 is a little better in my opinion.
The owners manual for the Pioneer VSX-D603S was exactly what I needed. I received it in a timely manor and it was priced fairly. I definately will use your servise again. Thank You

features wide screen
The panoramic mode emulates that of a wide screen broadcast for 4:3 transmissions. This is achieved by maintaining the proportions of the centre of the screen while shrinking the images on the top and bottom of the screen. Note: This mode is generally recommended if AUTO is not selected
The 16:9 ratio is the format that is usually transmitted by the broadcasting stations. The C16:9L format is used to expand a 16:9 â€˜letter boxâ€™ broadcast so that it uses the full screen to display the picture so that the image does not appear â€˜crushedâ€™.
The 14:9 ratio is the format that is sometimes transmitted by the broadcasting stations. The C14:9L format is used to expand a 14:9 broadcast so that it produces an image of true proportions, but because of the original ratio the screen will have thin black bars to the right and to the left of the picture.
Some broadcasters transmit in a 14:9 format, which appears with black bands down each side of your picture. C14:9LS enlarges the picture (which can cut off the top) so these black bars are no longer visible.
The conventional picture format for most broadcasts is the 4:3 ratio signal which gives black bars to the sides of the screen and this is consistent with screen compression (see right).
