I - DRIVER AND APPLICATIONS INSTALLATION
====================================

After the hardware installation of the card do the following:

1. For an existing installation (if not go to step 2): uninstall the
previous software by going to the REALmagic Group - Uninstall,
reboot, and follow next steps 2 to 7 below.
NOTE : You do not need when running SETUP of step 5 to set the
region code again as mentioned in step 6.

2. On booting your system, Windows 95 will detect the card. Insert the
REALmagic Hollywood Plus Drivers Disk in your floppy drive A and
click Finish. This will install Hollywood Plus drivers on your hard
disk.
3. To install the DVD navigation software insert Application Disk into
drive A and run SETUP.
4. The Setup program will show two options: Install the REALmagic DVD
application or Change the DVD region code.
5. Check the DVD application installation option and follow the
instructions.
6. After the files are copied, set a DVD region code as part of the
setup program.
Note: Setup will not ask you to set the DVD region code if you
install the card later in the same region.
7. Click Finish to complete the installation process by performing
Auto Calibration.


II - BORDER ADJUSTMENT AND COLOR CALIBRATION
=======================================

NOTE: If the border is not adjusted properly after Auto Calibration
you may need to set the Border Adjustment to get more
accurate adjustment. You need to set the Border Adjustment
only once for each setting of display resolution.

1. At the Start button, click Programs and select REALmagic Hollywood
Plus program group. Click REALmagic Configuration.
2. Click on Adjust Border and use the proper buttons to adjust the
black rectangle in the magenta box.
3. Change different values to adjust stability if you are viewing
jumping pixels on MPEG video. Click OK when you are done.
4. The Reset Default button will reset the color calibration and
border adjustment values to the factory default settings.

Note 1: Color calibration is required if the colors are not
normal or the screen is pink or not clear. If color
calibration is required, Click on "Auto Calibration". The
screen will flash for 5 to 10 seconds then displays a
message that the calibration is complete. Click OK.
Note 2: In the cases where this calibration is unsuccessful,
you can click on Advanced..., then the Manual
Calibration. This will involve fixing the R, G, B
sliders as shown in the window four times. You can use the
up/down arrow keys for fine tuning and you don't need
necessarily to see the cross but just the disappearance
of the vertical bar.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SYSTEMS WITH SERVICE PACK 3 and LATER
========================================================
This service pack includes a DMA support for the IDE driver
ATAPI.SYS for compatible drives and motherboards. Unfortunately,
there is an incompatibility between this DMA feature and the
reading of the decryption keys for encrypted movies. This will
cause a crash to the system while trying to read these keys.
We recommend running the program DMACHECK.EXE, if available
to you, to disable the DMA mode or alternatively go into the
CMOS setup to change the IDE mode of the DVD-ROM drive
controller from Auto to PIO.

***************************************************************

WHAT'S NEW IN THIS RELEASE 1.8
==============================
- DTS is now supported : whenever you choose the DTS option in a
movie menu the OUTPUT WILL BE DIRECTED THRU THE SP/DIF OUPUT IN
DIGITAL FORMAT REGARDLESS OF THE DVD STATION AUDIO OUPUT SETTING,
so the DTS stream is NOT decoded thru the analog mini audio jack
- NTSC to PAL conversion does not suffer of the 1 sec stuttering
- The audio volume sliding bar shows in full screen
- PC Friendly will show the playback of movie with the black
key color (video was not shown with rel 1.7 - audio only heard)
- The audio special output (6 channel Wave) support to sound cards
is removed for royalty issues
Audio Output :
============
The audio output of the movie can be from the stereo output of
Hollywood Plus or as a digital signal (AC-3 or PCM) from the
S/P DIF output.

PASS-THRU CABLE :
===============
You can use the Hollywood Plus without the pass-thru cable, but
in this case the video playback will be available on TV only
(and not on the VGA monitor). The system will detect the
presence of this cable at booting time. So connecting or
disconnecting it during a Windows session is not correct.
A reboot is needed to notify the Hollywood Plus driver.
