anything other than this DVD Recorder. No more editing or
recording can be made on the disc once it has been finalised.
When using a DVD±R disc
You should finalise the disc to play it on a component other
than this DVD Recorder. You cannot edit or record on the disc

■ HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is an interface to enable the digital transmission
of video and audio data with just a single connector.
Since HDMI is based on DVI, it is completely
compatible with DVI. The only difference between
HDMI and DVI is that HDMI supports multi-channel
audio.
Using HDMI, the DVD recorder transmits a digital
video and audio signal and displays a vivid picture on
a TV having an HDMI input jack.
▌Case 2 : Connecting to a TV with DVI Jack
• Using the DVI Adapter Cable, connect the HDMI OUT jack on
the rear of the DVD Recorder to the DVI IN jack of your TV.
• Using the audio cables, connect the AUDIO (red and white)
OUT jacks on the rear of the DVD Recorder to the AUDIO (red
and white) IN jacks of your TV. Turn on the DVD recorder and TV.
• Press the input selector on your TV remote control until the
DVI signal from the DVD Recorder appears on your TV screen.
■ To watch through the HDMI output, set the digital
audio output to PCM. See page 27.
■ Depending on the HDMI device (TV/HDMI Receiver)
you use, audio may not be supported. If TV does
not support Dolby digital/DTS, Audio output is not

■ HDMI connection description
HDMI connector - Both uncompressed video data and
digital audio data (LPCM or Bit Stream data).
- Though the DVD recorder uses a HDMI cable, the
DVD recorder outputs only a pure digital signal to
the TV.
- If 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) or an analog-todigital 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 D/A conversion and is a pure
digital signal from the DVD recorder to your TV.
■ What is the HDCP?
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)
is a system for protecting DVD content outputted
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.

Content Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM)
CPRM is a mechanism that ties a recording to the media on which it is
recorded. It is supported by some DVD recorders, but not by many DVD
players. Each blank recordable DVD has a unique 64-bit media ID etched
in the BCA. When protected content is recorded onto the disc, it can be
encrypted with a 56-bit C2 (Cryptomeria) cipher derived from the media ID.
During playback, the ID is read from the BCA and used to generate a key to
decrypt the contents of the disc.
If the contents of the disc are copied to other media, the ID will be absent
or wrong and the data will not be decryptable.

Playback
■ This may depend on the disc type.
Editing
This section introduces basic functions of DVD editing and explains both edit
functions for the recording on a disc and edit functions for the entire disc.
• Title List
A title is a section of recorded video and audio. Title List shows a list to help
you select a title. Since the title list consists of the information on stream that
is actually recorded, if one title is deleted, that title cannot be played again.
• Playlist
This refers to a unit of playback, which is made by selecting a desired scene in
the entire Title List.
When one playlist is played, only the scene selected by the user will play and
then stop. Since only the information necessary for playing a desired scene
is included in a playlist, even if that playlist is deleted, the original stream will
not be deleted.
Recording or editing might not be completed if an error, such as a sudden
power failure occurs.
Please be aware that a material that has been damaged is unable to be
retrieved to its original content.
