DVD Region Codes and Color Systems
DVDs must meet the requirements for Region Codes and Color Systems before you can use them
with the DVD Recorder. DVDs must be labelled for ALL regions or for Region 1 in order to play on
this DVD Recorder.You cannot play Discs that are labeled for other regions.These symbols must
appear on your DVDs, or you cannot play the DVD in this DVD Recorder.These symbols might also
appear on the Disc’s case or packaging.
The number inside the globe refers to a region of the world. Region 1 represents the United States,
Canada, upper regions of North America, Bermuda, the U.S.Virgin Islands, and small regions near
Australia.
Furthermore, recordings are made according to different color systems throughout the world.The
most common color systems are NTSC, which is used primarily in the United States and North
America, PAL, and SECAM.
This DVD Recorder is compatible with NTSC and PAL. Make sure the Discs you play were recorded in
NTSC or PAL.The color system of the DVD may appear on the DVD or its case.
However, when playing a PAL Disc, the Recorder must be connected to a PAL-compatible TV using
either the S-VIDEO (Y/C) or COMPONENT VIDEO (Y PB PR) jacks of the Recorder.The Recorder’s
VIDEO (CVBS) jack does not send a clear PAL signal. If a PAL Disc is copy-protected, the picture may
not be correct if you are using the COMPONENT VIDEO (Y PB PR) jacks.

_
+
+
_
Unless stated otherwise, the remote control can operate all the features of
the DVD Recorder. Always point the remote control directly at the remote
sensor on the front of the DVD Recorder, not the TV. See page 24.
Make sure there are no barriers between the remote and the Recorder.
The remote control also will operate some features of some Philips TVs.
See pages 22-23.
DVD Disc Menus...
Some explanations in this manual describe the DVD Disc Menus, which
vary among DVDs. Movie producers set these menus, and not all DVDs
have menus. But, if the DVD has a menu, access it by pressing the DISC
MENU button on the remote control. See page 34.
DVD Recorder Menus...
Some instructions explain how to use the Recorder’s System Menu or
Menu Bars to set up features of the Recorder or the Disc.You get to the
System Menu by pressing SYSTEM MENU on the remote control. See page
30. Even if a feature is set up in the Recorder’s menu, it will not be available
if the current Disc does not include that feature.
DVD Player Upgrades
If a DVD does not play properly, please contact Philips at 1-800-531-0039
for assistance. Due to the inconsistency of Disc formats provided by various Disc manufacturers, your DVD Recorder may require a playability
enhancement. As DVD technology has advanced, these enhancements have
become both common and easy to complete.
Available Disc Features...
Features in this manual may not be available on every Disc. If the feature is
not available, you cannot use the Recorder to make it available. An “X” will
appear in the top left corner of the TV screen if you try to access a feature
that is not available on the current Disc.
Hookups 9
Determining the best possible connection...
Your existing equipment, especially your TV, will determine your connection.These
guidelines describe which options provide the best picture and sound quality.
★★★★ Component Video provides the best picture quality. Progressive Scan
Component Video has the highest quality, but use it only if the TV has
Progressive Scan. See pages 12 and 60.
★★★
S-Video provides excellent picture quality. See page 13.
★★
Composite Video (a yellow Video jack) provides good picture quality.
See page 14.
★★
Your TV may have only an RF-style jack, usually labeled
Antenna In or 75 ohm. You can use an RF coaxial cable for a simple
connection. See page 10.
★★★★ Digital audio connections provide the clearest sound. Connect the
Recorder’s Coaxial DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack to your Stereo for the
best sound quality. See page 16.
★★★
For the most common audio connection, connect the Recorder’s
white/red OUT AUDIO L/R (left/right) jacks to the Audio In jacks of
your Stereo or TV. See pages 12-15.
Before you begin...
●
●
Refer to the manuals of your TV, Stereo, Cable Box, or other equipment as
necessary. Note the jacks and connectors on the other equipment. Determine
how to choose different Audio and Video In channels on your other equipment
so you can see and hear the DVD Recorder on the TV, Stereo, etc.
Disconnect all equipment from the power outlets. Connect the equipment to
the power outlets only after you have finished hooking up everything. Never
make or change connections with equipment connected to the power outlet.
Remember...
●
●
●
●
●
●
Set the TV to the correct Video In channel or channel 3.
This is channel 3 if you connect the Recorder directly to a TV only as
shown on page 10.
Otherwise,Video In channels may be called AUX or AUXILIARY IN,
AUDIO/VIDEO or A/V IN, EXT1 or EXT2 or External In, etc.These
channels often are near TV channel zero (0). Or, your TV remote control may have a button or switch that lets you choose the Video In channel
directly. See your TV manual for details. Or, go to your lowest TV channel and
change channels down until you see the blue Philips DVD background picture
on the TV screen.
Connect the Recorder directly to the TV. For example, do not connect the
Recorder to a VCR, then connect the VCR to a TV. This may distort the picture and sound. Your VCR may have the copy protection system, which could
distort the DVD image.
Set the Stereo to the correct channel or “source” mode.
Do not connect the Recorder’s AUDIO OUT jacks to the PHONO IN jack of
your Stereo.
You only need one audio connection and one video connection between the
Recorder and your TV (or TV and Stereo).You will not use all the jacks on the
Recorder.
You can use the DVD Recorder to preserve your memories by copying a videotape to a DVD+R or DVD+RW. Special connections are
needed between the DVD Recorder and your camcorder or VCR,
which will play the existing videotape into the DVD Recorder for
recording. See page 17 for details.
Once you determine the option that best fits with your existing
equipment, find your choice on pages 10-16. Follow the steps for the
hookup you chose.
When you finish your connections and turn on the Recorder for the
first time, complete the Initial Setup.This sets up TV channels, menu
languages, and other features. Go to page 18 to do the Initial Setup.

VCR Plus+ Channels 27
If you intend to use the VCR Plus+ programming system, program the DVD
Recorder with your local channel information.This will only take a few minutes. Since the channel numbers of the stations you receive may not be the
same as the station numbers, and since channel numbers differ from area to
area, you must set up channels in order for the system to work efficiently.
Before you begin, make sure you have 1) a cable TV channel list, if applicable
(you can request one from your cable TV company), and 2) a chart that lists
VCR Plus+ channel numbers, which you can find in your TV guide or the TV
listings of your local newspaper.

Momentarily, “FAIL” or “PASS” will appear on the display panel.
If “FAIL” appears, your Recorder needs repair. Contact the Philips Customer Care Center for
