What is “CPRM”?
(Content Protection for Recordable Media)
This is a format used to record copy-once programs. By recording coded data on the area of
DVD discs that ordinary writing software cannot write, it prevents copy-once programs from
being recorded repeatedly on different media.
This unit is CPRM compatible, which means
that you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but then you cannot make a copy of
those recordings. CPRM recordings can only be
made on DVD-RW discs formatted in VR mode,
and CPRM recordings can only be played back
on players that are compatible with CPRM.

If copy-protected material is encountered during a
recording, recording will be paused or stop automatically and an error message will be displayed on
screen.
When recording a TV broadcast or through an
external input, you can display copy control information on screen.

recorded in a compatible format. (Check with the
software publisher for more detailed information.)
• Discs recorded in Video mode on this unit cannot
record any additional materials using other DVD
recorders.
• A DVD-RW disc formatted with this unit cannot be

Playlist
From this list you can play back
contents of a disc in your desired
order or sequence. Also it allows
to search a specific scene directly.
SAP
(Secondary Audio Program)
Sub-audio channel which is delivered separately from main-audio
channel.This audio channel is used
as an alternate in bilingual broadcasting.
Title (DVD only)
A collection of chapters on DVD
disc. See also Chapter.
103
Others Español
Track
Audio CDs use tracks to divide
the content of a disc.The DVD
equivalent is called a chapter. See
also Chapter.
VCR functions
S-Video output
It delivers independently each signal of color(C) and luminance(Y)
to TV as video signals, so that
higher-quality picture will be
materialized.
Changing the Setting menu
Digital audio
An indirect representation of
sound by numbers. During recording, the sound is measured at discrete intervals (44, 100 times a
second for CD audio) by an analog-to-digital converter, generating
a stream of numbers. On playback,
a digital-to-analog converter generates an analog signal based on
these numbers. See also Sampling
frequency and Analog audio.
PCM
(Pulse Code Modulation)
PCM is a format that converts
audio into digital data. It is mainly
used for Audio CDs and DAT.This
unit can play back sounds as realistic as possible by converting
even compressed Dolby Digital
and MPEG audio to PCM.
Sampling frequency
The rate which sound is measured
by a specified interval to turn it
into digital audio data.The numbers of sampling in one second
defines as sampling frequency.The
higher the rate, the better the
sound quality is.
Editing
CPRM
(Content Protection for
Recordable Media)
This is a format used to record
copy-once programs. By recording
coded data on the area of DVD
discs that ordinary writing software cannot write on, it prevents
copy-once programs from being
recorded repeatedly on different
media.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
MP3 is a method of compressing
files.You can copy MP3 files on
CD-RW/-R discs from the computer and play back the files on
this unit.
Disc Playback
Component video output
This is a video signal format that
conveys each of three principal
colors of light (red, blue and
green) through different signal
lines.This allows the viewers to
experience picture colors as original as it is.There are several signal
formats, including Y/PB/PR and
Y/CB/CR.
Finalize
To make recorded contents on
DVD discs possible to be played
back on DVD players.With this
unit, it is possible to finalize
DVD-RW/DVD-R discs.
Regions code
Regions associate discs and players with particular areas of the
world.This unit will only play back
discs that have compatible region
codes.You can find the region
code of your unit by looking at
the rear panel. Some discs are
compatible with more than one
region (or all regions).
Recording
Chapter
Just as a book is split up into several chapters, a title on a DVD
disc is usually divided into chapters. See also Title.
DTS (Digital Theater System)
DTS is a 5.1 channel surround
sound system, but it is different
from Dolby Digital.The formats
were developed by Digital Theater
System, Inc.
Progressive scan (480p)
A type of display that does not
split each frame into fields, and
instead scans directly through all
the scanlines of each frame in
order. Progressive scan provides
less flickering and higher image
resolution than traditional (480i)
TV signals. Refer to page 14 for
instructions on selective progressive scan mode.
Getting started
Aspect ratio
The width of a TV screen relative
to its height. Conventional TVs are
4:3 (in other words, the screen is
almost square); widescreen models
are 16:9 (the screen is almost
twice as wide as it is high).
Dolby Digital
The system developed by Dolby
Laboratories to compress digital
sound. It offers you sound of
stereo(2ch) or multi-channel
audio (up to 5.1ch).
Connections
Analog audio
An electrical signal that directly
represents sound. In contrast, digital audio can be an electrical signal, but is an indirect representation of sound. See also Digital
audio.
