The outputs of 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8 are dedicated to modules of digital signal processing (DVD).
The video and audio outputs of 5 and 6 are dedicated to modules of digital (DVD) or analogue (VHS) signal processing.
Both groups of outputs are used for analogue and digital sources. But there are limitations, e.g.: During recording or scheduled recording on DVD, the VHS
playback is only possible on outputs of 5 and 6.
For a conventional tube television, we recommend using the Scart socket.
You retain a high-quality RGB video picture with an RGB-compatible television.
! If you want to use a progressive-capable LCD/plasma television or LCD projector, connect it to COMPONENT VIDEO OUT to get a high quality
progressive video picture.

Handling discs
If the surface of a disc, which has no Cartridge or was removed from one, is scratched, dirty,
dusty or has finger prints, playback or processing can be impaired. Such impairments can
also occur when the disc is placed back in the Cartridge.
Note: Only write on the label side of the disc. Use a soft, oil-based felt-tip pen. Do not use
a ball-point pen or any other hard writing instrument. Do not affix stickers or labels to the
disc. When not in use, put the disc in its case or Cartridge.
RAM
With active write protection, you can
neither record to the disc nor edit or
delete content.
Cleaning the DVD-RAM
Clean the disc with a special DVD-RAM cleaner (optional) and read the cleaner
instructions throughly before use. Bad scratches and stubborn dirt may not be able to be
removed so that recording, editing or playback is still compromised even after cleaning.
The disc should then no longer be used.
Do not use benzine, alcohol, water, cleaning sprays, household cleaners or other solvents.
Cartridge write protection
DVD lens cleaner (RP-CL720E)
Remove the 8-cm disc from the
cartridge before using it with this unit.
Compatible models: Only for Panasonic's DVD recorders.
Do NOT use this cleaner with any other Panasonic DVD products or with the DVD products of
any other companies since doing so may damage the products.

DivX (Direct-Video-eXpress) is a format for saving compressed audio and video data
and is developed by DivXNetworks. It is based on MPEG-4, but saves in a much
more compact manner to approx. one-tenth the size of the uncompressed file format
with satisfactory quality. Thus, the content of a DVD (approx. 8 GB) can be saved to
a conventional CD-ROM (650 MB) in DivX format.
DivX files must always be played with the version with which they were compressed,
since newer DivX versions are not compatible with older versions.
