HOW TO USE THE DVD RECORDER & VCR
Step 1 : Select the disc type
This unit can record on the following types of discs.
If you want to repeatedly record on the same disc or you want to edit the disc after recording, select a
rewritable DVD±RW or DVD-RAM type disc. If you want to save a recording without making any changes,
choose a non-rewritable DVD±R.
Step 2 : Format the disc to start recording
Unlike a VCR, the recorder automatically starts formatting when an unused disc is inserted.
Using a DVD-RAM/±RW/+R
When an unused DVD-RAM/±RW/+R disc is first inserted, the message "Unformatted Disc. Formatting.
Please wait." will be displayed.
Using a DVD-R
It is not necessary to format a new DVD-R disc. When it is inserted, it will operate in Video mode.
It can also be formatted in VR mode in the setup menu.
You can change the disc mode only once when an unused DVD-R disc is inserted.
M
 You can only use either the VR or Video mode on a DVD-RW/-R, but not both at the same time.
 You can format a DVD-RW/-R to V or VR mode using disc setting.
It should be noted that the disc's data will be lost when changing formats.
Step 3 : Recording
There are two different recording methods, Direct Recording(recording a program you are currently watching)
and Timer Recording.
Timer recording is classified as follows : Recording mode : HQ (high quality mode), HSP, SP (standard quality
mode), LSP, ESP, LP, EP, SLP (Long duration mode) according to the recording mode.
When recording is set in the AUTO mode, the best quality picture is recorded with regards to the remaining
time on the disc.
Step 4 : Playing
To start playback, select the title you want to play from the title list.
A DVD consists of sections called titles, and sub sections called chapters.
During recording, a title is created between two points where you start and stop recording. Chapters will be
created automatically regardless of the disc type when it is set at the setup menu.
Step 5 : Editing a recorded disc
Editing on discs is easier than conventional video tapes. The recorder supports many different edit functions,
possible only with DVDs.
With a simple and easy edit menu, you can operate various edit functions, such as delete, dubbing, rename,
lock, etc., on a recorded title.
12_ getting started
01613A-01-VR375-XAA-ENG.indb 12
2008-02-28 오전 11:03:48
Creating a playlist (DVD-RAM/-RW/-R in VR mode)
With this recorder, you can create/edit a new playlist on the same disc without changing the original
recording.
Step 6 : Finalizing & Playing on other DVD components
To play your DVD on other DVD players, finalizing may be necessary. First, finish all editing and recording
operations, then finalize the disc.
Although finalizing is generally unnecessary when playing the disc on a VR Mode compatible component, a
finalized disc should be used for playback.
When using a DVD-RW/-R disc in Video Mode
The disc should be finalized first to enable playback on anything other than this recorder. No more editing or
recording can be made on the disc once it has been finalized.
When using a DVD+R disc
● GETTING STARTED
When using a DVD-RW/-R disc in VR Mode
You should finalize the disc to play it on other DVD players. No more editing or recording can be made on the

HDMI ( High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI enables you to make a digital video and audio connection with a single cable. Using HDMI, the DVD
player transmits a digital video and audio signal and displays a vivid picture on a TV having an HDMI input
jack.
Using an HDMI- HDMI cable(not included), connect the HDMI OUT jack on the rear of the DVD Recorder &
VCR to the HDMI IN jack of your TV.
Press the input selector on your TV remote control until the HDMI signal from the DVD Recorder & VCR
appears on your TV screen.
 To hear audio on your TV when using HDMI, set the digital audio output to PCM (2 channel). (See page 33)
 Depending on the HDMI device (TV/HDMI Receiver) you use, audio may not be supported.
If your TV does not support Dolby digital/DTS, Audio output is not available when you set the Digital output as
Bitstream or select DTS On in the Audio setup menu. In this case, set the digital audio output to PCM or DTS Off.
 If you use an HDMI cable to connect a Samsung TV to the DVD recorder & VCR, you can operate the recorder using
the TV remote control. (This is only available with SAMSUNG TVs that support Anynet+(HDMI CEC).)

Connecting to a TV with a DVI Jack
Using an HDMI-DVI cable (not included), connect the HDMI OUT terminal on the rear of the DVD Recorder &
VCR to the DVI IN terminal of your TV.
An HDMI to DVI connection requires a separate audio connection, using the audio cables, connect the
AUDIO (red and white) OUT (AV OUT) terminals on the rear of the DVD Recorder & VCR to the AUDIO (red
and white) IN terminals of your TV. Turn on the DVD Recorder & VCR and TV.

 HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI enables you to make a digital video and audio connection with a single cable.
Using HDMI, the DVD and VCR player transmits a digital video and audio signal and displays a vivid picture on a TV
having an HDMI input jack.
 HDMI is completely compatible with DVI.
The only difference between HDMI and DVI is that HDMI supports multi-channel audio.
 HDMI connection description
HDMI connector - Both uncompressed video and digital audio data(LPCM or Bit Stream).
- Even though the DVD Recorder & VCR records analog audio and video, with HDMI the analog signal is converted to
digital signal and is sent to the TV. Both DVD and VCR playback is possible through HDMI.
- If your TV does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), snow noise appears on the screen.
 Why does Samsung use HDMI?
Analog TVs require an analog video/audio signal. However, when playing a DVD, the data transmitted to a TV is
digital. Therefore either a digital-to-analog converter (in the DVD Recorder & VCR) or an analog-to-digital converter
(in the TV) is required. During this conversion, the picture quality is degraded due to noise and signal loss. HDMI
technology is superior because it requires no digital-to-analog conversion and is a pure digital signal from the DVD
Recorder & VCR to your TV.
 What is the HDCP?
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a system for protecting DVD content output via HDMI from being
copied. It provides a secure digital link between a video source (PC, DVD. etc) and a display device (TV, projector. etc).
Content is encrypted at the source device to prevent unauthorized copies from being made.

CONNECTING THE VIDEO OUTPUT
Besides HDMI, there are several other ways to connect your DVD Recorder & VCR.
Select one of the video connections on the following pages.
Connecting to Component Video Input Jacks (Y, PB, PR)
Connect Component video cables (not supplied) between the COMPONENT OUT (Y, PB, PR) jacks on the
DVD Recorder & VCR and COMPONENT IN (Y, PB, PR) jacks on your TV.
● CONNECTING & SETTING UP
Green
Blue
Red
• You will enjoy high quality images. Component video separates the picture element into black and white(Y),
blue(PB), red(PR) signals to present clear and clean images.
• Connect the audio cables(white and red) between the Component AUDIO OUT jacks on the DVD Recorder
& VCR and Component AUDIO IN jacks on your TV(or AV amplifier). (See pages 24~25)
• Progressive scan
- If your TV supports Progressive Scan, you can enjoy higher quality video by Progressive Scan Setting.
(The component cable has to be connected.)
M
 Compared to standard interlaced video, progressive scan doubles the amount of video lines fed to your TV, resulting
in a clearer, more stable, and flicker free image than interlaced video. The component output jack of the DVD player
can be used for progressive output mode, which is only available with TVs that support progressive scan.
 Progressive Scan Output (480p)
Consumers should note that not all high definition television sets are fully compatible with this product and may
cause artifacts to be displayed in the picture. If you experience 480p progressive scan picture problems, it is
recommended that you switch the connection to the ‘standard definition’ output. If there are questions regarding TV
set compatibility with this model, please contact our customer service center at 1-800-SAMSUNG.
 The Component jacks will not output video resolutions above 480p. To view 720p, 1080i and 1080p connect the
DVD-VR375 to your TV with an HDMI-HDMI cable. With HDMI connected, set the progressive scan to alternate
between all available resolutions. (See page 31)
 During DVD recording, you cannot watch VCR playback by pressing VCR, as the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks will
output DVD video signals only.
