Features
1
DVD-RW/R recording/playback
with outstanding compatibility
• This Recorder is compatible with digital recording
on rewritable DVD-RW discs and one-time recordable DVD-R discs. It has two recording formats: “VR
(Video Recording) mode” which has a wealth of
editing functions, and “Video mode” which can be
played back with existing DVD players. This lets you
enjoy recording and dubbing to suit your purpose.
2
High picture quality design (Used
in all hard disc and DVD modes)
VBR (Variable Bit Rate) recording
• Constantly maintains optimal high picture quality by
varying the bit rate (amount of video data) for each
scene depending on the video content (e.g. whether
movement is fast or slow).
3
A variety of hard disc t DVD
dubbing functions
1High speed dubbing*1
Enables high speed dubbing from hard disc to DVD
so you can enjoy creating your own video library.
*1
For high speed dubbing, use discs conforming to DVD-RW
Ver. 1.1/2g or DVD-R Ver. 2.0/4g.
2Rate conversion dubbing
The mode can be selected from 32 levels just like
recording mode. This enables recording at the
optimal picture quality, given the remaining empty
space on the disc.
3Exact dubbing
This automatically adjusts to the optimal record
mode so that the material is dubbed exactly into the
remaining area on the disc.

“Time Shift Viewing”, “Chasing
Playback” and “Simultaneous
Recording/Playback” —functions
you can only get with a hard disc
1Time shift viewing
While you are watching a programme, the phone
rings.… At times like this, you can pause the
programme being broadcast at the press of a
button, and then watch the rest of the programme
at your leisure after you finish your phone call. You
can also switch to the current broadcast scene just
by pressing ■STOP/LIVE button.
2Chasing playback
You return home earlier than expected while timer
recording is in progress…. At times like this, you
don’t have to wait for recording to end. You can
immediately view the programme from the beginning.
3Simultaneous recording/playback
Even while recording to the hard disc, you can
enjoy playback of a DVD, or programmes already
recorded on hard disc. You don’t have to wait for
recording to finish.
5
Comprehensive editing functions
(Only titles recorded on the hard disc or in VR
mode on DVD-RW can be edited.)
1Play list edit
This lets you gather only the needed parts (i.e. a
“Play List”) from a recorded original video (title). You
can rearrange scenes and combine them with other
scenes, or rearrange titles. This is convenient when
you want to dub and save only the necessary
scenes and titles.
2Chapter edit
This lets you divide a title into chapter units during
recording/playback or using the edit screen. After
dividing, a list of recordings (thumbnails) can be
displayed in chapter units, so you can copy, erase
or dub to the play list in chapter units.
3Erase Scene
This lets you erase unnecessary scenes. This is
convenient when you want to cut out the commercials in a recorded programme before dubbing.
4Batch erasing of titles/chapters
Titles and chapters which become unnecessary
after editing can be batch erased by selecting them
from the list of recordings (thumbnails).
5Edit undo function*2
If you mistakenly erase data during editing, this
function lets you restore it to its immediately
preceding state, just like “Undo” on a PC, so you
can edit worry-free.
*2 Edit undo can only be used once. It only works when
“UNDO” is assigned to a coloured button (green) displayed on the screen.

Precautions about Using This Product
Do not use at locations at high
temperature.
Do not place objects on the Recorder.
• If you leave this equipment at a location which rises to an
abnormally high temperature (like the inside of a car with
the windows shut), this may cause deformation of the
cabinet or malfunction. Be very careful not to allow the
area abound the Recorder or discs to reach a high
temperature.
• Do not place any objects, such as vases or lighted
candles on the top of the Recorder.
• Set up at a location where there is adequate space above
the Recorder
• Do not place a TV or other heavy object on the Recorder.
Doing so may result in problems like noise appearing on
the screen, or deformation of the cabinet.
• Do not place the Recorder on any equipment which gets
hot.
• Do not place at a location which is exposed to direct
sunlight, or near a heater. Be careful because doing so
will have an adverse effect on the cabinet and components.
Keep away from magnetic objects.
• Keep the Recorder away from strong magnetic objects.
Handle the Recorder carefully.
• Do not drop the Recorder, or subject it to strong impact or
vibration. Doing so will cause malfunction. Be careful
when carrying or moving the Recorder.
No fingers or other objects inside
• Do not put any foreign object on the disc tray.
When moving or shipping the
Recorder
Do not remove the cabinets.
• Do not remove the Recorder cabinets. Touching parts
inside the cabinet could result in electric shock and/or
damage to the Recorder. For service and adjustment
inside the cabinet, please contact the nearest service
centre approved by Sharp.
Do not cover the fan or ventilation holes on the back of the Recorder.
• When setting up the Recorder, do not cover the fan or
ventilation holes on the rear of the Recorder. This will
interfere with the cooling fan and cause malfunction. Be
especially careful of this point when housing the Recorder
in a TV stand or AV rack.
• Do not use the Recorder on carpets, or on a bed or sofa,
or wrap the Recorder in cloth or other material. This will
interfere with the cooling fan and cause malfunction.
Avoid dust and smoke.
• Do not place the Recorder at a location which is unstable,
subject to heavy vibration or where there is a lot of dust or
tobacco smoke. Doing so may cause malfunction or
accidents.
Set up the Recorder so it is horizontal.
• Do not stand the Recorder up vertically or place it upside
down. Doing so will cause malfunction.
Downloaded From Disc-Player.com Sharp Manuals
• Remove the disc before wrapping the Recorder. In case
you will not be using the Recorder for a while, remove the
disc, and turn off the power.
Dew formation
• Dew may form on the surface of and inside the Recorder
if you suddenly carry it from a cold location to a warm
location, or use it in a cold room where heating has just
been turned on (i.e. on a winter morning). If dew forms,
let the Recorder sit with the power off until the dew
disappears. Using the Recorder with dew formation
present may cause malfunction.(See page 15.)
Precautions about Using This Product
Upkeep of cabinet
• The cabinet surface employs a lot of plastic. Do not wipe
these surfaces with benzene or thinner because this may
cause deterioration or paint peeling.
• In the unlikely event that the hard disc (HDD) malfunctions for some reason, you cannot replace it by yourself. If
you disassemble the Recorder you will void the warranty.
Please contact the nearest service centre approved by
Sharp. We cannot provide compensation for data content
if data is lost or not recorded.
Connected equipment
• Read carefully the “Precautions for Use” in the operation
manual for any equipment connected to the Recorder.
Power conservation
• Do not apply volatile liquids like insecticide to the
cabinet. Also, do not allow long-term contact with
materials like rubber, vinyl products or synthetic leather.
Doing so may cause problems like paint peeling.
• Do not affix stickers or tape to the Recorder. Doing so
may cause cabinet discolouration or damage.
• If the cabinet or front panel display gets dirty, gently wipe
it off with soft cloth like flannel. If it is extremely dirty, soak
a cloth in neutral detergent diluted with water, wring the
cloth well, wipe, and then wipe again with a dry cloth.
Using powerful cleaners may cause discolouration,
deterioration or paint peeling. We recommend testing any
cleaners at an inconspicuous location on the Recorder.
Electromagnetic interference
• If you use a mobile phone or other electronic equipment
near the Recorder, video may be disturbed or become
noisy during playback or recording due to electromagnetic interference.
Antenna
• To avoid the effects of radio interference, set up the
antenna at a location away from busy roads, electric
wires for train, electric transmission lines and neon signs.
This is effective for preventing electric shock accidents in
the unlikely event that antenna falls down.
• Do not make the antenna line unnecessarily long, or
bundle it. Be careful because doing so will cause the
picture to be unstable.
• The antenna is exposed to the weather, so be careful to
periodically check and replace it. This will ensure a
beautiful picture. Antennas are particularly susceptible to
damage at locations with heavy smoke and soot, and
locations exposed to sea breeze.
Hard disc (HDD)
• This Recorder records programmes onto a hard disc
(HDD). The hard disc is equipped with a safety mechanism to protect data from impact, vibration and dust.
However, to prevent loss of recorded data, you should be
particularly careful of the following points:
• Do not subject the Recorder to any impact.
• Do not use at a location which is unstable or subject to
vibration.
• Do not move the Recorder while the power is on.
• Do not unplug the power cord from the AC outlet
during recording or playback. First turn power “OFF”,
and then unplug the power cord from the AC outlet.
• Do not use at a location with abrupt temperature
variation (variation of more than 10°C per hour).
• The Recorder will malfunction if used at a cold location
(5°C or less) or an extremely hot location (35°C or
higher).
• If you carry the Recorder from a cold location to a
warm location, let the Recorder sit for a while before
using it.
Downloaded From Disc-Player.com Sharp Manuals
• When you are finished using the Recorder, conserve
power by turning power off. If you go on a trip, or
otherwise will not use the Recorder for a long time,
unplug the power cord from the AC outlet to ensure
safety.
Requests regarding setup
• Do not cover the fan or ventilation holes on the back of
the Recorder. Doing so will interfere with heat radiation
and cause malfunction.
Notes about use
• The Recorder and cabinet may become a little hot,
depending on the use environment when using this
Recorder. This is not a malfunction.
• When unplugging the power cord (to move the Recorder,
etc.), first turn off power (STANDBY indicator on the front
of the Recorder lights up red) to protect the hard disc
(HDD).
• When power is turned on, the fan will rotate to cool the
Recorder.
• Immediately after plugging the power cord into an AC
outlet, or after recovery from a power failure, the unit may
fail to operate for more than ten seconds because the
Recorder is performing system adjustment.
Notes about this operation
manual
• In this operation manual, the terms “the Recorder”, “this
Recorder” or “your Recorder” refer to the “DV-HR350F/
DV-HR300F DVD Recorder with Hard Disc”.
• The screen displays and Recorder illustrations given in
this operation manual are for explanatory purposes, and
may differ somewhat from the actual screen and Recorder.
About Hard Disc (HDD)
This Recorder has a built in hard disc (abbreviated
“HDD”) for recording and playback. Beware of the
following points when setting up and using the Recorder.
Failure to observe precautions may cause damage to the
HDD itself or its content, failure of the disc to operate, or
recording of noise.
• Do not subject to any vibration or impact.
• Do not place at a cramped location which might block the
cooling fan or ventilation port on the back of the Recorder.
• Do not place at a location with severe temperature
variation.
s If the Recorder is set up at a location with severe
temperature variation, dew may form on and inside the
Recorder. If the Recorder is used with internal dew
formation present, this may cause HDD damage or
malfunction. We recommend keeping variation in room
temperature within 10˚C per hour.
• Do not place at a location with high humidity.
• Place the Recorder horizontally, never at an incline.
• When the power is on, do not unplug the power cord from
the AC outlet, turn off the breaker for the area where the
Recorder is set up, or move the Recorder.
s When moving the Recorder, first turn off the power and
then unplug the power cord from the AC outlet.
In the unlikely event that there is some problem like loss
of recorded video or audio content due to a HDD
malfunction, please be aware beforehand that Sharp will
bear no responsibility to compensate for the content
which could not be recorded or edited, for the loss of
recorded or edited video, or for other related direct or
indirect damages.
■ If a power failure occurs
• The content being recorded or timer recorded will be
damaged if power failure occurs.
• The content being played back may be damaged.
■ For important recording
• If the HDD malfunctions, the content recorded on the
HDD may be lost. If you wish to save content permanently, we recommend copying or moving the content
to DVD-RW or DVD-R.
NOTE
• If a message indicating a HDD error is displayed (such as
“CANNOT OPERATE DUE TO HDD ERROR.”) and the
HDD has malfunctioned, you cannot replace the HDD by
yourself. If you disassemble the Recorder, the warranty
will become void. Also, recovery of data is impossible. If
playback is possible, re-record the recorded content onto
a DVD-RW/R disc, and contact your nearest service
centre approved by Sharp.
Recording Format
■ HDD recording is done using the variable bit rate
format for more efficient recording.
The following phenomena may occur.
With the variable bit rate format, the remaining amount
which can be recorded may increase or decrease relative
to the display of the remaining amount of HDD space.
• When the display indicates that the remaining amount of
HDD space is low, first delete unnecessary programmes,
and then record with an extra margin in the amount of
remaining space.
• Even if you delete a programme, the remaining amount
may not increase by the amount of deleted time. When
recording new video, record with an extra margin in the
amount of remaining space.
• With this Recorder, part of the HDD capacity is used as a
system management area.
Unrecordable Material
• This Recorder is equipped with a copy guard function
that prevents recording of video software or broadcast
programmes that contain a signal that restricts copying in
accordance with copyrights and so forth.
• In the case a copy guard signal is contained in a source
video that occurs partway through recording, recording is
paused at that point. Recording resumes when the copy
guard signal is no longer present, while no recordings will
be made for the part where the copy prevention signal is
present.
Downloaded From Disc-Player.com Sharp Manuals
Hard Disc Operation
(Recording / Playback / Time Shift
Recording)
• If the Recorder is used in a cold location (a location at
low temperature), the drive will only allow live viewing
after power is turned on until the HDD is ready. During
this time, the Recorder will not allow Time Shift Viewing,
recording, display of recording lists or playback of
recorded programmes. Please wait until the HDD is
ready.
Initialization
• Initialization erases all video recorded on the HDD. Be
sure to dub important recordings onto DVD-RW/R discs
before initializing.
CPRM (control) Information
• There are 3 types of copy control signals: “Copy Freely”,
“Copy Once” and “Copy Never”.
“Copy Never” programmes cannot be recorded on HDD.
When a “Copy Once” enabled programme is copied from
HDD to DVD-RW, the video is not copied — it is moved
from the HDD to the DVD-RW (i.e. the content recorded
on the HDD is erased).

About MP3 file format
MP3 files are audio data compressed in MPEG1 Audio
layer 3 file format. “MP3 files” have “.mp3” as extensions.
(Some files that have “.mp3” extensions or files that have
not been recorded in MP3 format will produce noise or
cannot be played.)
Æ Playing MP3 discs
• The MP3 files are not played in the order they were
recorded.
• The maximum number of layers which can be
recognized, including files and folders, is 8.
• Some multi-session discs cannot be played.
• It is recommended to record data at a lower speed as
data recorded at fast speed can produce noise and
may not be able to be played.
• The more folders there are, the longer the reading
time.
• Depending on the folder tree, reading MP3 files can
take time.
• Folder or track (file) names are limited to 8 characters.
Folder or track (file) names that go over 8 characters
will be abbreviated. (Certain letters or symbols in
folder names or title name may not be displayed.)
• The playing time may not be correctly displayed
during MP3 file playback.
Æ The following files cannot be played on this
Recorder.
• Discs that have more than 257 folders or 1,000 files.
• When both Audio CD format and MP3 files format are
recorded on a disc. (The disc is recognized to be an
Audio CD and only tracks in the Audio CD format are
played back.)
Types of Discs for Recording
• DVD-RW and DVD-R discs can be recorded with this
Recorder. The recording format that can be selected may
vary according to the disc version and type of disc.
• Make sure to use a disc that has the words “For Video” or
“For Recording” on the disc or disc jacket for recording
and playback with this Recorder.

DVD-RW Discs
• DVD-RW discs are available in Ver. 1.1, Ver. 1.1
(CPRM compatible) or Ver. 1.1/2g (CPRM
compatible).
• When a disc has been recorded in the VR mode, it
can be recorded and erased repeatedly. Erasure also
allows the recording time to be increased.
• When a disc has been recorded in the Video mode,
additional recording is possible until the disc is full.
The recording time does not increase*7 even if titles
are erased, but if the disc is initialized (see pages 13
and 95) full recording time is possible.
*7
Recording time can only be increased when the last
title is erased (titles cannot be erased after a disc
has been finalized).
DVD-R Discs
• DVD-R discs can only be recorded in the Video
mode.
• Although additional recordings can be made until the
disc is full, disc space does not increase even if titles
are erased (because erasure here refers only to
making the titles not visible).
• Although these discs can be played back with other
DVD players once they have been finalized, the discs
can no longer be recorded or erased after they have
been finalized.
• Discs can be additionally recorded and edited with
this Recorder only until they are finalized.

indication.
DVD players with this indication have the function of
being able to play back DVD-RW discs recorded in
the VR mode with a DVD recorder.
When using a DVD-RW Ver. 1.1 disc (CPRM compatible).
Recorded programmes cannot be played back with
other DVD players (including DVD-RW players) or DVD
recorders not compatible with CPRM.
Video Mode
This recording format is compatible with commercially
available DVD players and DVD-ROM drives.
• Discs recorded in the Video mode cannot be recorded
repeatedly or their content overwritten.
• When recording in the Video mode, discs can be played
back, additionally recorded and edited only with this
Recorder until they are finalized. Editing functions are
limited.
• Discs recorded in the Video mode can be played back
with other DVD players by finalizing them after recording.
(However, this does not guarantee that these discs can
be played back on all DVD players.)
• Recordings onto DVD-RW/R discs using the Video mode
employ a new standard approved by the DVD Forum in
2000, and compatibility with this standard is left to the
discretion of the respective DVD player manufacturer.
Consequently, there are some models of DVD players
and DVD-ROM drives that are unable to play back DVDRW/R discs.
• “Copy Once” programmes cannot be recorded.

EP
About 360 minutes
When you want to place priority on
recording time.
• Recordable time is based on the recording time when
using a 4.7 GB disc. Since recording capacity varies
according to the recorded material, there may be cases
where there is much more disc space remaining on the
disc when recording is completed.
• Refer to page 37 about the recordable times when you
choose “MN” (manual) Recording mode.
* Since recording to DVD is performed using VBR (variable
bit rate, refer to the section on VBR Control on page 105)
with the exception of some recording modes, recording
time varies according to the material to be recorded.
• Recordable time may be shorter than that indicated above in
the case of recording material of poor image quality such as
broadcasts from televisions with poor reception.
• This does not guarantee the length of recording time. Actual
recording time may be shorter than that indicated above
depending on image quality and other aspects.
• The total of recording time and remaining time may not always
agree with the recordable time of the recording mode.
• Block-like images may become conspicuous during scenes
containing rapid movement due to the characteristics of digital
image compression technology.
Disc Remaining Time
Æ VR mode
• Additional recordings can be made as long as there is
available space on the disc. (Additional recordings
can also be made after the disc is finalized.)
• Erasing unnecessary recordings lets you increase the
remaining time on the disc. (The disc can also be
erased after it has been finalized.)
• When a Play List (see page 74) is created, disc space
will not increase even if portions of titles or titles of
Play List are erased.
Æ Video mode
• Additional recordings can be made with this Recorder
provided there is available space on the disc until the
disc is finalized.
• In case you record on a DVD-RW disc, recordable
time will increase if you erase the last recorded title
unless you finalize the DVD-RW disc.
• In case you record on a DVD-R disc, recordable time
will not increase even if you erase titles (see page 73).
(The erase function only hides the title, it does not
actually erase it. It does not actually delete the
recorded contents.)

Æ This Recorder is equipped with a copy guard
function that prevents recording of video software
or broadcast programmes that contain a signal that
restricts copying in accordance with copyrights and
so forth.
Example:
• DVD videos
• PPV (pay-per-view) broadcasts
Æ The proper image may not be obtained in the case
a copy guard signal is contained in the images
input from equipment connected to the external
input jacks (LINE 1, LINE 2, LINE IN 3 or DV IN) of
this Recorder.
Example:
• Images not output at proper brightness
• Incorrect output of picture size and other data
Connect such equipment directly to your TV
without going through this Recorder.
Æ In the case a copy guard signal is contained in a
source video that occurs part way through recording, recording is paused at that point. Recording
resumes when the copy guard signal is no longer
present, while no recordings will be made for the
part where the copy prevention signal is present.
Initialization and Finalization
Initialization (Formatting)
Initialization is required when using DVD-RW discs in the Video mode. (See page 95 for details about Initialization.)
When an unused DVD-RW disc is placed in the Recorder immediately after the disc has been purchased, the Recorder is set
to automatically begin initializing in the VR mode. The settings can also be changed so that discs are initialized in the Video
mode (page 95).
When using a DVD-RW disc in the Video mode without changing this setting, initialize the disc in the Video mode after first
completing initialization in the VR mode (page 95).
• Initialization causes the entire previously recorded contents of the disc to be erased.
• It takes about 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds for initialization to be completed.
Allowing Discs to Be Played Back with Other DVD Players (Finalization)
Discs must always be finalized in order to play them back with another DVD player after having been recorded in
the Video mode. (See page 95 for details about Finalization)
Finalize discs on which all recordings have been completed so that they can be viewed with another DVD player or a DVD
Video compatible PC. Discs that are not finalized may not be able to be played back with other DVD players or DVD Video
compatible PCs. (However, this does not guarantee that finalized discs can be played back on all DVD players or DVD Video
compatible PCs.)
• Finalizing a DVD-R disc prevents all recording and editing of that disc.
• Although DVD-RW discs can be re-recorded by initializing even after they have been recorded in the Video mode and
finalized, all previously recorded contents are erased.
• Finalization is required if a disc recorded in the VR mode cannot be played back with a DVD-RW compatible player. (Discs
formatted in the VR mode can be recorded and edited even after finalization.)
• Finalization takes from several minutes to about an hour. (Processing takes longer if there is considerable available space
on the disc.)
The following operations may cause malfunction.
• Operating discs recorded or edited by this Recorder in a DVD recorder or PC’s DVD drive manufactured by other manufacturers.
• Using the discs in above situation again with this Recorder.
• Operating discs recorded or edited by a DVD recorder or PC’s DVD drive made by other manufacturers than the one for
this Recorder.
About the Contents of the Disc
Title, Chapter and Track
• DVDs are divided into “Titles” and “Chapters”. If the disc
Example 1: DVD
has more than one movie on it, each movie would be a
separate “Title”. “Chapters”, on the other hand, are
subdivisions of titles. (See Example 1.)
Title 2
• Video CDs and Audio CDs are divided into “Tracks”. You
Title 1
can think of a “Track” as one tune on an Audio CD. (See
Example 2.)

Important Information
Disc Precautions
Be Careful of Scratches and Dust
• DVD-RW and DVD-R discs are sensitive to dust, fingerprints and especially scratches. A scratched disc may
not be able to be recorded, or important data recorded
may not be able to be played back. Handle discs with
care and store them in a safe place.
Proper Disc Storage
Place the disc in the centre of
the disc case and store the
case and disc upright.
Avoid storing discs in locations
subject to direct sunlight, next
to heating appliances or in
locations of high humidity.
Do not drop discs or subject
them to strong vibrations or
impacts.
Avoid storing discs in locations
where there are large amounts
of dust or locations where mold
tends to grow easily.
Handling Precautions
• If the surface is soiled, wipe gently with a soft, damp
(water only) cloth. When wiping discs, always move the
cloth from the centre hole toward the outer edge.

• Higher recording mode means higher picture quality and lower recording mode means longer recording time.
• Picture quality of recorded content changes distinctively if the recording mode changes from the recording modes right
below the bold lines in left chart and recording modes right above the bold lines. The positions of the bold lines differ
among HDD, DVD-RW (VR Mode) and DVD-RW/R (Video Mode).
• With MN22-32, VBR recording has a large effect, so the actual recording time will be longer.

• If you have recorded a title with HI SP DUB
PRIORITY set to “YES”, and you want to
edit that title in frame units, cancel HI SP
DUB PRIORITY (page 64).
You cannot set “HI SP DUB PRIORITY” to
the title again once you cancel.
NOTE
• When you perform editing like adding a
chapter mark or erasing a scene, a slight
discrepancy may arise between the “EDIT”
screen and actually edited video.
• If you play back a disc edited at the frame
level with another DVD recorder, there may
be a shift in the start or end point, or the
