Introducing the hard disc recorder and Beo4
4
With the Bang & Olufsen hard disc
recorder, you do not need to use
video tapes any more. Instead, you
can store recordings on the built-in
hard disc.
If the hard disc is full, the recorder
automatically makes space available
for new recordings. You can prevent
deletion of your most important
recordings, so they can only be
deleted on your command.
The hard disc recorder also makes it
possible for you to pause an on-going
programme for a short break and replay
it later, so you do not miss anything.

With the hard disc recorder, you do not have to clutter up your home with piles of video tapes. You can
store your recordings on the hard disc and bring up an overview of recordings on your television screen
at any time.
Record programmes
The hard disc recorder gives you the opportunity
to record and store TV, Satellite (DTV*) and
set-top box (STB) programmes on the hard disc.
You decide whether to store them temporarily
or permanently. The manual and timed
recordings you make are stored in HARD DISC
CONTENT, and the on-going programs you
pause and replay are put temporarily in a
three-hour replay buffer. If you wish, you can
move saved programmes from the buffer to
HARD DISC CONTENT.
*NOTE! On some Beo4 remote controls, the DTV
button is called SAT and the V MEM button is
called V TAPE.

>> Record a programme
Record here and now
There are two ways to record a programme
here and now. One allows you to watch a
source, such as TV, while recording another
source, such as STB. The source you want to
record must be built into your television (such
as TV) or connected directly to it (such as STB).
If you start a recording this way, you can watch
another source while recording is going on,
but not a previous recording. A second way
allows you to watch one recording while
making another.
If you start a manual recording from the hard
disc recorder main menu, you can then watch
a second recording at the same time.
Note that you can not start a new recording
if there is a recording already in progress, or
if the hard disc is full of protected recordings.
V.TUNER is only accessible if you set the REPLAY
option in the hard disc recorder SETUP menu to
BASIC or EXTENDED. For further information,
refer to the chapter ‘Preference settings’ on page
38.
Record a source and watch
another source at the same
time …
Press RECORD twice. The hard
disc recorder begins recording
the current programme

of time it takes for the hard drive to start – up to
35 seconds.
*NOTE! On some Beo4 remote controls,
the V MEM button is called V TAPE.

Timer recording via teletext
With some Bang & Olufsen televisions, it is
possible to start a recording by pressing RECORD
twice, and then watch a second recording while
the first is being made.
The way to determine if your television supports
this type of simultaneous playback and recording
is to do the following:
> Press RECORD twice to start a recording.
> Select another source to watch, such as DVD.
> Press V MEM. If playback begins automatically,
your television supports simultaneous playback
and recording.
Recordings can be programmed via the
on-screen menu or directly via the relevant
teletext page.
We recommend that you check the date of your
Timers in the Timer Index after storing them. This
is described on page 11.
> Press TV to switch on TV.
> Press TEXT to switch on Teletext. With some
televisions, you can press RECORD to bring up
an on-screen menu, use or to move the
cursor until TELETEXT is highlighted and press GO.
> Find the teletext page you want.
> Press RECORD or MENU to be able to select a
programme to record, or use to move to REC
on the teletext menu bar and press GO.
> Press or to move to the start time.
> Press GO to select the chosen start time.
> Press GO to select the stop time, you can

to change and or to move between the
entered data.
> Press GO to store the Timer recording.
PROGRAMMING STORED indicates that your
Timer is stored.
If you have selected V.TUNER or a connected settop box as your source, teletext services may
either be severely limited – for example, without
number input – or they may be inaccessible. Select
TV as your source before programming a Timer
recording via teletext.
Play a recording
14
In playback situations, the hard disc
recorder behaves exactly like a video
tape recorder.
If you switch on the hard disc recorder
and wait a few seconds, playback of
stored recordings begins automatically.
If you switch it on from standby, the
hard disc recorder takes up to 35
seconds to start up. During this time,
you can use the menu system, but not
play recordings.
Browse through your stored recordings
in an on-screen menu.
Unless otherwise instructed, the
hard disc recorder plays the selected
recording through to the end. The
recording is then paused.
Select a recording
When you select a recording to play, the hard
disc recorder automatically resumes playback
from where you left off the last time the
same recording was played. If you have
viewed the recording to its end, playback
starts from the beginning.
Select a recording …
> Press V MEM* then the green button to bring
up the hard disc recorder’s main menu.
> Press GO to bring up the HARD DISC CONTENT
menu.
> Press or to highlight the recording you
wish to play. A at the bottom of the list or
a at the top of the list indicates that more
recordings are available
> Press GO to play the selected recording.
Playback information – the time elapsed and
the total length of the recording – appears
briefly on the screen.
Playback information can be brought up at any
time during playback by pressing GO. To remove
playback information, press EXIT or wait three
seconds.
*NOTE! On some Beo4 remote controls,
the V MEM button is called V TAPE.

About space management and protection
The hard disc recorder has a space management
feature which, when necessary, automatically
makes space for manual and timed recordings.
It does so by deleting the required amount of
content on the hard disc. The following principles
apply:
– Protected recordings are never deleted.
– Recordings that have been viewed or edited are
deleted before recordings that have not been
viewed or edited.
– The oldest recordings are deleted first.
– The maximum number of recordings that can be
stored on the hard disc is 300.
– Timed recordings are not executed if the hard
disc is full and all recordings are protected, and
any recordings in progress are stopped automatically when the hard disc capacity is reached.
*NOTE! On some Beo4 remote controls, the V MEM
button is called V TAPE.
Pause and replay an on-going programme
20
The hard disc recorder lets you take
a break in the middle of a TV or STB
programme without missing any of it.
Just pause the programme and
resume it when you are ready.
The hard disc recorder begins saving the
current programme in a three-hour
buffer the moment you switch on a
source, so you can replay what you
missed during the break. The hard
disc recorder continues saving the
programme during replay, so you
are sure to see the entire programme.
You can switch directly to the live
signal at any time.
Pause a programme
To be able to pause and replay a programme,
as well as access the built-in tuner (V.TUNER),
you must first set the REPLAY option in the
SETUP menu to BASIC or EXTENDED. These
settings determine when the hard disc
recorder starts saving a programme to the
buffer.

Set up the hard disc recorder
38
Follow the guidelines and procedures
on these pages when you set up the
hard disc recorder.
Placement guidelines
Place the hard disc recorder on a solid, level
surface. Do not place any items on top of the
hard disc recorder.
Place the hard disc recorder away from
radiators, direct sunlight and other heat
sources.
Do not place the hard disc recorder on
a carpeted surface, as carpet blocks the
ventilation holes.
When placing the hard disc recorder, leave space
around it for adequate ventilation.
The hard disc recorder is intended for indoor
use in dry, domestic environments only,
within a temperature range of 10–40˚C
(50–104˚F).
What to do if the hard disc recorder
overheats
If, for example, the ventilation holes are blocked,
or if you have placed the hard disc recorder in
direct sunlight, the recorder may overheat. If this
happens, the standby indicator in the display
flashes red and green and a warning appears on
the screen.
Switch the hard disc recorder off immediately and
let it cool. Before switching it on again, ensure
that you have placed it as described on this page.
WARNING
THE HARD DISC RECORDER IS OVERHEATING
PLEASE SWITCH IT TO STANDBY
If this warning appears on the screen and you do
not switch off the hard disc recorder, it switches
itself off automatically after a few minutes, and
remains off until it has cooled sufficiently. You
cannot operate the hard disc recorder during this
time.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
(WEEE) – Environmental protection
The European Parliament and the Council of the
European Union have issued the Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment Directive. The purpose of
the Directive is the prevention of waste of electrical
and electronic equipment, and to promote the reuse
and recycling and other forms of recovery of such
waste. As such the Directive concerns producers,
distributors and consumers.
The WEEE directive requires that both manufacturers
and end-consumers dispose of electrical and
electronic equipment and parts in an environmentally
safe manner, and that equipment and waste are
reused or recovered for their materials or energy.
Electrical and electronic equipment and parts must
