The DV-68 MPEG-2 DVD Video Player is small and 
compact, with no moving parts. It will store and 
playback full-motion audio/video clips from standard, 
high-speed (

40X or greater

) Compact FLASH 

memory cards (

FAT or FAT16 format).


MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4. MP3 or JPEG files to 
the DV-68 easily by simply using your PC (

or Virtual 

PC on a Mac

) and a standard FLASH memory card 

reader.  In MENU mode, the DV-68  can be set up to 
repeat the first file on the system with button access to 
the other files using the optional TV-66K. The DV-68 
can also be set up in REPEAT mode to cycle through 
all the files on the FLASH card.

Content Integration 

To set up your content (MPEG-1 VCD, MPEG-2 
DVD, MP3, or JPEGs) to work with the DV-68, you 
must have a high-speed Compact FLASH media 
card capable of data transfer rates fast enough for 
playing back your content. You will also need to use 
a Compact FLASH reader/writer with your 
computer to copy the appropriate files to the 
memory card.

 The only files on the card should be 

the media files  - if there are any other files or 
directories on the card (i.e. Mac. dsstore files), 
the DV-68 will still try and play them. 
TextWrangler  (shareware program)  is available 
for the Mac – this will remove the unwanted files.


Connect your card reader to your PC (note: be sure 
that the card reader driver is installed) and insert the 
Compact FLASH card (we recommend 1GB 
minimum) into the reader. 




The DV-68 uses numeric filenames for playback.  In 
MENU mode, the “menu file” is named “000.mpg” 
and the button activated files are named “001.mpg”, 
”002.mp3”, “003.jpg” etc.  


In REPEAT mode, the files are named in numeric 
order starting at 001. For example, “001.mpg”, 
”002.mp3”, “003.jpg” etc.

Menu Mode (factory default) 

Menu mode: DV-68 will loop file 000 as the “menu” 
and will then play “file (button press)”. For example, 
button 3 will play file 003 on the card. At the end of 
playing the file, the menu file (000) will begin 
looping again. Button access requires a TV-66K. 

Repeat Mode 

Repeat mode: DV-68 will play all the files in 
sequence, one file at a time in numeric order. After 
the last file has played, the DV-68 will start with the 
first file (001) again. On a button press, the DV-68 
will play “file (button press)”. For example, button 4 
will play file 004 on the card.

“menu”). When a MP3 file is selected, a frequency bar 
chart will show up when playing. 

Connecting to your display

at the read of the DV-68 and then plug in the
