CONNECTIONS
Connecting the Antenna Cable
There are several ways to connect your DVD-VCR. Select one of the following antenna connections that best
suits you below.
■ Method 1: Antenna + DVD-VCR + TV: No Cable box
■ Method 2: Antenna +Cable box + DVD-VCR + TV: Cable box with many scrambled channels
■ Method 3: Antenna + DVD-VCR + Cable box +TV: Cable box with a few scrambled channels
- If you are using an off-air antenna that has 300-ohm twin flat leads, use an external
antenna connector (300-75 ohm adaptor: not supplied) to connect the antenna to the
DVD-VCR.
- If you have two separate antennas (one VHF and the other UHF), use a UHF/VHF
combiner-adaptor (available at most electronics shops) to connect the antenna to the
DVD-VCR.
- The RF OUT(TO TV) jack of this product sends signals received through the antenna
and also outputs Audio/Video signals.
Method1: Antenna + DVD-VCR + TV: No Cable box
You can record non-scrambled channels by
selecting the channel on the DVD-VCR.
Also use this Method if you watch channels
without cable box.

CD-R MP3/WMA file
When you record MP3 or WMA files on CD-R/Memory Card, please refer to the following.
- Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
64Kbps when recording WMA files.
- Your MP3 or WMA files should be ISO 9660
or JOLIET format.
Sound quality with WMA files basically depends
on the rate of compression/decompression you
choose.
ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 or WMA files
are compatible with Microsoft's DOS and
Windows, and with Apple's Mac. This format is
the most widely used. Memory Cards over 4GB
use FAT32, which may not be compatible with
this unit.
Getting CD audio sound requires an
analog/digital sampling rate, that is conversion
to WMA format, of at least 64Kbps and up to
192Kbps.
- When naming your MP3 or WMA files, do not
exceed 8 characters, and enter “.mp3, .wma”
as the file extension.
General name format : Title.mp3. or Title.wma.
When composing your title, make sure that you
use 8 characters or less, have no spaces in the
name, and avoid the use of special characters
including: (.,/,\,=,+).
Conversely, files with decompression rates
below 64Kbps or over 192Kbps will not be
played properly.
- Do not try recording copyright protected
MP3 files.
Certain "secured" files are encrypted and code
protected to prevent illegal copying. These files
are of the following types: Windows MediaTM
(registered trade mark of Microsoft Inc) and
SDMITM (registered trade mark of The SDMI
Foundation). You cannot copy such files.
- Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128 Kbps when recording MP3 files.
Sound quality with MP3 files basically depends
on the rate of compression/decompression you
choose. Getting CD audio sound requires an
analog/digital sampling rate, that is conversion
to MP3 format, of at least 128 Kbps and up to
160 Kbps. However, choosing higher rates, like
192
- Important:
The above recommendations cannot be taken
as a guarantee that the DVD-VCR will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality.
You should note that certain technologies and
methods for MP3 file recording on CD-Rs
prevent optimal playback of these files on your
DVD-VCR (degraded sound quality and in some
cases, inability of the player to read the files).
Kbps or more, only rarely give better sound
quality. Conversely, files with decompression
rates below 128 Kbps will not be played
properly.
- This unit can play a maximum of 3000 files and
300 folders per disc.
