About your device
Your appliance is a digital video player/recorder. It has a built-in
tuner so you can record TV programmes directly onto DVD+R
and DVD+RW discs or onto the built-in 250 Go hard disk. It can
play the majority of 8 cm and 12 cm discs, with the exception of
DVD Rom, DVD Ram, and DVD audio.
Precautions to take
• Ensure that the mains supply in your house complies with that indicated on the identification
sticker located at the back of your device • Install your device horizontally, on a suitable base
(furniture), with enough space around it for ventilation (7 to 10 cm) • Ensure that the ventilation
slots, and the device itself, are not covered by objects such as a mat, newspapers, curtain, etc. • Do
not stack any other equipment on top of your DVD recorder • Do not place the device on top of
an amplifier or any other equipment that gives off heat • The appliance should not be in contact
with liquids or exposed to the risk of dripping or splashing.Therefore be careful not to place any
object containing a liquid (vase, glass, bottle,...) on or near your appliance • The DVD recorder
must not be near or exposed to a flame. For instance, do not place a candle on or near the
device • Protect the DVD recorder from moisture and excess heat (e.g. fireplace) or equipment
creating strong magnetic or electric fields (i. e. speakers ...). Before moving the device, ensure the
disc tray is empty. Switching off the DVD recorder to the stand-by mode does not disconnect the
electricity supply. In order to separate the device completely from the mains, it has to be
disconnected by unplugging the mains plug.When connecting, ensure that the plugs of the various
cables are pushed securely into their corresponding sockets.Your DVD recorder is not intended
for industrial use but for domestic purposes only. Use of this product is for personal use only.
Copying CDs or downloading music files for sales or other business purpose is or may be a
violation of copyright law.

Guide (B).
There are several ways you can incorporate your DVD player into its audio-video surroundings.
The simplest of these is described in detail in the Quick Set-up Guide supplied with this handbook.
This uses Scart-Peritel cables that combine Audio analogue connections for sound, and Video for
the RGB image.This connection ensures the optimum image quality (like Y, U,V). If you cannot use
Scart-Peritel sockets, the explanations on this and the followings pages should enable to you to
choose the method of connection best suited to the sockets and appliances you have. Sound and
image quality depend to a large extent on the types of connections used.
Peritel socket (scart)
1 - AV1 (audio - video Outputs)
This socket allows you to transfer Audio and Video (sound and images) from
your DVD recorder to a television set or other device (flat screen, audiovideo amplifier, etc.) that is fitted with the same type of socket. In order to
benefit from the best image quality, ensure that the OUTPUT SEL selector
is positioned on RGB (AV1).
Note: if you use Y, Pb/Cb Pr/Pb sockets also known as YUV), select the Component
Interlaced or Component Progressive position depending on the possibilities of
the television set or monitor:
• Component Interlaced for interlaced scan,
• Component Progressive for progressive scan.
2 - AV2 (audio - video Input and Output)
This socket allows the sending of Audio Video (sound and images) from your
DVD recorder to another device (satellite or cable receiver, …) fitted with
the same type of socket.
If you have connected a cable or satellite receiver to this connector, in the
system Options menu select the RGB (AV1) setting in order to benefit
from the best image quality for your recordings.
Note: the Péritel socket is also known by the name of Péritélévision or Scart. The
latter is an abbreviation of « Syndicat des Constructeurs d’Appareils Radioélectriques
et de Télévision ».

Connections and initial set up
Other Audio - Video connections
If there is no Peritel-Scart socket available on the television, check to see if there are any other
Video sockets (Components, S-Video or Composite) to connect your player by using the
corresponding sockets. In this case, do not forget to also connect the player’s Audio outputs
(AUDIO OUT) to the Audio input sockets (AUDIO IN) on your television.
3 - Audio - Video Input
Audio (INPUT L, R) Video - Composite (CVBS) (COMPOSITE
VIDEO INPUT) inputs
The analogue sound of an operating device (television set or amplifier) can be
input via the 2 Audio sockets L and R of your DVD recorder.
The yellow video socket is also called composite video, or CVBS. the image
quality provided by this socket is less than all the other video sockets. Only
use this socket if all the other sockets are already in use.
4 - Audio - Video Output
Audio outputs (OUTPUT L, R) Composite Video Out socket
(CVBS) (COMPOSITE VIDEO OUTPUT)
Analogue sound output and composite images (CVBS) from the disc being
played are constantly available at your DVD recorder's two audio sockets
(L & R) and video socket.
5 - Composite Video Outputs (Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr) (YUV)
The Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr sockets deliver an optimum image quality due to the
separation of the video signal into three separate components (comparable
with RGB separation in a Scart-Peritel cable).
Note: the available video signal on these 3 sockets depends on the selection made at
the rear (Component Interlaced or Component Progressive) of your
player. The available signal can be Y, Cb, Cr (Component Interlaced) for a
progressive interlaced or Y, Pr, Pb (Component Progressive) for a non interlaced
progressive signal (no frame interleave).
In order to obtain the best possible image quality, always use very high quality
cables for the connections.Your dealer can provide YUV cables that are sold
together and come in the standard colour codes (red, green and blue) used
for these types of sockets and cables.
Note: do not forget to also connect the audio cables, because Component cables only
transmit images, and not sound.

6 - S-Video Input and Output
S-Video input/output (Y/C) (S-VIDEO IN)
The S-Video signal is of a lesser quality than that of the RGB signal supplied
by the Peritel (Scart) socket. An S-Video signal however provides a better
quality image than a composite Video (CVBS) socket, because colour (C) is
separated from black and white (Y) in the video signal.
Note: do not forget to connect the audio cables since the S-Video cable transmits
only images, not sound.
7 - Optical Audio Output (digital sound)
The digital sound of a DVD Video disk when played is permanently available
on the optical socket of your player. Use this socket by connecting it to a
decoder or Dolby Digital amplifier or DTS.
8 - Digital Audio Video outputs
The HDMI socket permanently delivers very high quality digital sound and
pictures.This connection is strongly recommended with a digital television
which is fitted with the same socket and is compatible.
HDMI connection, image adjustment
If you connect your DVD recorder to a TV set using the HDMI OUT
socket, make sure the selector at the rear of your recorder is set to
Component Progressive.
If no image comes up on your TV screen and you're sure its set to HDMI (via
the on-screen menu or other means), try the following resolution adjustment:
- In STOP mode (with no disc in the appliance), press the ZOOM button on
the remote control several times to adjust the resolution of the HDMI OUT
socket output signals to 480p, 720p, or 1080i.These changes are displayed on
your recorder’s read-out.
Note: for an S-video or normal video connection (yellow socket), leave the selector set
to RGB.
HDMI connection, sound adjustment
The sound available from the HDMI OUT output socket can be adjusted in
the Digital Audio Out menu (Dolby Digital, DTS, MPEG).

Changing images
During the picture sequence change images using the PR Fl or PR lG keys on the remote

To play DivX files
Your player is an Officially Certified DivX™ device. It can play DivX®5, DivX®4, DivX®3 and
DivX®VOD files according to the DivX Certified™ technical specifications.
The correct playing of DivX in your player, depends on the preparation and production of the
audio and video files, the codecs used, the type of recording equipment employed and the
parameters of your computer. It is therefore possible that you cannot play a DivX file or that part
or all of it is defective. It can also sometimes happen that you can play the images
(video) but not the sound (audio).
Note: To guarantee playback of DivX files the audio must be mp3 format. DivX Certified devices can play
back any interleaved mp3 audio at any bitrate, both CBR and VBR. The audio must be sampled at standard
frequencies, such as 32 khz, 44.1khz, and 48khz, and must conform to the AVI file specification. Apart from
mp3, the audio formats recognised by your player are MPEG layer 1/2, AC3, DTS, PCM. The most common is
mp3. Formats such as AAC and Ogg Vorbis are not supported by this player.

To rent (purchase) DivX® VOD files
DivX VOD files are comparable to rental video DVD discs.They both allow you to view the video
(film).The difference lies in the access to the media. DivX VOD files are downloaded after paying
a rental from certain commercial Internet sites. In order to permit the downloading of VOD you
need to input on the purchase form of the site, the registration number of your DVD player.
You can find your player's registration number using the System Options (DivX) menu.
Write down this VOD 8 character recording number, in order to complete the form on the web
site where you purchase your DivX® VOD files.
Note: If you cannot play a DivX VOD file, recorded on a CD-R disc after downloading, it is possible that the
rental period allocated during purchasing from the web site has expired. It may also be that the recorded file
is incompatible with your player because of different versions or incorrect download parameters. The
parameters used during the copying to CD-R may also be a cause. Since it is not possible here to supply all
the information, parameters and advice relating to the use of DivX® VOD files, we recommend that you visit
a specialised web site such as www.divx.com/vod.
Concerning DivX files
You can find DivX files for download as well as generating them your self from your own content.
In the same way as mp3 files are used for audio, DivX and mpeg4 can be used for video. Files can
be recorded from your computer on to a CD-R or RW disc, which, owing to the much higher
compression than that used for DVDs can contain a complete movie.
The DivX, XviD and RV9 formats are all file formats using the same type of compression known
as MPEG-4.Though these formats all utilize a different codec.
A note on copying: before making use of DivX or mpeg4 files, please be sure of their origin and that you
have legally purchased or rented the content. Pirate copying is illegal and may result in sanctions. Private
copies of your own material for your own use may be legal in some countries. Make sure you are aware of
applicable laws.

Note: deactivate this function if you want to split up a recording during playback from the library (via the
edit menu).
Chapter Markers
When recording a title, your recorder organises the chapters by creating chapters of 5 minutes in
length.This then allows you to explore your recordings by jumping from chapter to chapter using
the Pr+ / Pr- key.You may select chapter lengths of 10 minutes if you wish, by positioning the
function to 10 minutes.You may also decide not to create chapters by selecting NO (function deactivated).
VPS/PDC
Triggers all your programming at the actual broadcast times (if the channel broadcasts VPS/PDC
signals).
Note: the VPS (Video Programming System) and PDC (Program Delivery Control) signals are transmitted at
the same time as certain programmes, by certain channels and in certain European countries. Leave this
function active to benefit from its benefits for all your programming. If the channel does not broadcast VPS or
PDC signasl, your DVD recorder will record at the start and stop times selected during the programming of
the recording.

Further information
Recommendations and information
concerning discs (12 cm)
noise during playback.
Image files and CD-R / CD-RW discs
To view your JPEG images on a TV set you do not
need to record your photographs with a
resolution above 400,000 pixels (which
corresponds to an image format of about 720 x
576 dots), for television screens do not allow a
higher quality given their limited characteristics. In
this case ensure that you reduce the quality of
your photographs before recording on a disc in
order not to impede the proper running of your
player.This is because excessively loaded pictures
would slow down or might prevent the proper
functioning of the slide show during playback on
your player. Compatibility of JPEG files depends
on the software on which they were created and
on the size of files expressed in pixels. Some JPEG
files, including Progressive JPEG files (display in
stages) cannot be played on this appliance.
Choice of CD-R / CD-RW discs
This player can play most CD-R and CD-RW
discs. However, depending on the recorder of
your personal computer, the type of disc and
recording method used, it may be that some discs
cannot be played, or that the performance does
not meet the expected standard of quality.When
playing a CD-R disc, it is completely normal for
the unit to take up to 20 seconds to recognize
the disc before starting to play. If the disc is not
recognized after a period of 20 seconds, remove
the disc, and then insert it again.
• Whatever the actual recording capacity of a
disc, do not fill it to maximum capacity.
• Use CD-R discs rather than CD-RW (rerecordable CDs), as replay of CD-RWs may
sometimes not work properly.
• Use a reliable and good quality recording
software.
• Before recording on a disc, close all applications
on you personal computer in order to optimise
the quality and reliability of recordings on the
disc.
Audio files and CD-R / CD-RW discs
In the case of discs that include mp3 files, follow
not only the general recommendations for CD-R
and CD-RW discs, but also the following specific
recommendations.
• The format of your mp3 files must be ISO 9660
or JOLIET.These files are compatible with DOS
and Windows applications, as well as with Mac
OS.
• Your mp3 files must have a name no longer than
12 characters as well as the suffix “.mp3”.They
must be recorded in the form: title.mp3. Ensure
that you do not leave spaces or use special
characters such as ( . , / , \ , = ,+) in the name.
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128 kb/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording
mp3 files. Sound quality with mp3 files basically
depends on the rate of
compression/decompression you choose.To
obtain sound quality equivalent to that of an
audio CD, use files for which the sampling rate
during conversion from analogue audio to mp3
format is between 128 kbps and 160 kbps.
Higher compression rates, such as 192 kbps or
more, will only rarely improve sound quality.
Conversely, files with sampling rates below 128
kb/sec will not be played properly.
• Do not attempt to record protected mp3 files.
Such files are coded and protected.
Important:The above recommendations cannot
be taken as a guarantee that the DVD player will
play mp3 recordings, or as an assurance of sound
quality.You should note that certain technologies
and methods for mp3 file recording on CD-Rs
prevent optimal playback of these files on your
DVD player (that is degraded sound quality and
even, in some cases, inability of the player to read
the file or files).
Video CD (VCD) discs)
VCD (Video Compact Disc) discs enable up to 74
minutes of VHS quality video associated with still
pictures, audio tracks and interactive menus to be
recorded on a CD.
About DVD+R, +RW discs
Choose good quality discs.To avoid any problems,
choose brands such as: Imation, Maxell, Philips,
Ricoh,Verbatim, Sony, etc...
Disc Formatting
When you insert a DVD+RW disc for the first
time, your DVD recorder must format the disc.
This operation will take several minutes, but you
may begin recording onto the disc shortly after
the formatting process starts (around 10 to 20
seconds). During these few seconds, the display
indicates FORMAT DSC.
Care of discs
Always handle your discs with care. Hold a disc
with fingers on the border or hole. Always place
disc with the label facing upward (in case of a
single-sided disc). Always place the disc properly
into the tray using the proper guide area. Always
use a soft cloth to clean discs if necessary, wipe
from the centre to the border. Always put discs
back into their cases after playing and store in a
vertical position. Never use record cleaning
sprays, benzine, static electricity liquids or any
other solvent, if the disc surface is dirty.Wipe
gently with a soft damp (water only) cloth, never
wipe the disc in a circular motion, since circular
scratches are likely to occur and could cause

Adjusting the G-LINK CABLE
The IR (infrared) controller cell must face the
receiver cell of the satellite receiver.You can
locate the receiver cell of the satellite receiver by
bringing its remote control as close as possible to
the front of the device and trying to change
channels. Move the remote control one
centimetre and try again.When the channel of the
satellite receiver changes, locate the position on
the front of the unit.Then install the IR controller
cell as shown on the diagram below, facing the cell
of the satellite receiver (1 or 2 cm away). If need
be, use the adhesive supplied to stick the cell in
place.
Record
Your DVD recorder has recording functions
similar to a video recorder. It lets you record
programmes to a disc in the DVD family DVD
(DVD+R, DVD+RW) or to the internal hard disc
(DVR or HDD). For the same disc, the recording
time depends on the quality settings that you can
adjust according to the time left on the disc.The
recording may be immediate or deferred.The
recording may be immediate or deferred.
DivX files and CD-R / CD-RW discs
DivX is a compression format answering the
MPEG-4 standard and that allows an entire film to
be contained on a single CD.
The compatibility of DivX formats depends on
MPEG-4 coding software, disc design software and
the recording software employed, as well as the
discs themselves.
What codecs can your player read?
• Playback of DivX 3.11 content • Playback of
DivX 4 files (MPEG-4 simple profile) • Playback
of DivX 5 files (MPEG-4 simple profile and
additional functions such as bi-directional
frames. Qpel and GMC are not supported) •
Resolutions up to 720 x 480 at 30fps and 720 x
576 at 25fps are supported • Macroblocks per
second 40500 • Maximum average bitrate 4000
kbps • Maximum peak bitrate during any 3
seconds of video 10000 kbps • Minimum VBV
buffer size (kbytes) 384k bytes.
For DivX 3.11 content at Home Theater Profile,
the required average bitrate is 1000 kbps, and the
required maximum peak bitrate is 4000 kbps.
Mpeg4 and Xvid content may or may not play
back depending on the exact recording method
and codec used.
NICAM sound
NICAM sound is digital, compatible with analogue
tv sets. It is broadcast by certain channels and
relayed by certain emmiters in some European
countries. NICAM (Near Instantaneously
Companded Audio Multiplex) is also used to
broadcast Dolby Surround stereophonic
programmes or for simultaneous broadcasting in
two languages or for two different sounds
(intended for blind and poorly sighted people).
Using the remote control unit correctly
When you use remote control, point the unit at
the appliance you want to control (DVD recorder,
TV set or satellite receiver). Ensure that there is
no obstacle between the remote control unit and
the appliance, otherwise the infrared signal
carrying the remote control commands will be
blocked.To control your DVD recorder, ensure
that the remote control unit is in DVD mode by
pressing once on the DVD key before using any
other keys.
Downloading of Naviclick data
the downloading of Naviclick data (at 3am or
8am) can be quite long (up to 2 hours). During
this time you should not use your DVD recorder,
nor turn it on or have a programme programmed
for recording during this updating time (from 3am
to 5am or 8am to 10am) otherwise the
information will be lost. For countries that
provide the NexTView service we recommend
that you set the downloading time to 3am.The
full guide of TV programmes can only be
consulted the following day after an initial
installation. It is necessary to allow your DVD
recorder to download the guide at the time set in
the Naviclick Setup menu .
AV Link function
Your DVD recorder is equipped with the AV
Link function.This function simplifies channel setup by downloading them from an AV Link or
similar television set (Easy Link, Smart Link,
Megalogic, etc.) which is already set up.The
channels downloaded in this way keep the same
characteristics as those of your TV set (same
number, name, etc.).Your DVD recorder’s AV Link
downloading function is enabled (factory setting).
When first turning on the DVD recorder, if the
television is turned on, it will download the
channels already installed in your television set.

recorder also controls another device
Sound problems
• Some DVD players made by the Thomson
group (Thomson, Brandt, Ferguson, Saba,
Telefunken) react to the same codes.To avoid
this inconvenience, you can program your DVD
recorder and its remote control so they have a
different code to those of the other devices.

temporarily locked you can unlock it.
• You cannot record on the same disc both video
images and JPEG photos or mp3 music. Use
different DVD+R/+RW discs for each type of
recording.
• Dirt and finger prints may affect the recording
and playback. Please see page 68 of your User
Manual for information about proper handling
of discs and proper disc cleaning.
There is no sound with the image
• Is the volume turned down? The audio codec of
your player cannot play DivX files with the
most recent codecs.
• The majority of applications on your computer

coding. More information on this can be found
using the various Internet search engines.
Playing problems
The DVD doesn’t play, even when you press
the PLAY button
• The disc rating is higher than the limit that you
have set.
Fast forward or rewind doesn’t work
Other operating problems

power plug: is it well plugged into the mains
socket? Also check the power cable jack at the
rear of the DVD recorder; is it well pushed in.
• Is the mains socket to which you DVD
recorder is connected receiving current? Try to
plug in a lamp or other electrical device: do
they work? Check the corresponding fuse in
your house’s fuse box.
Your DivX files won’t play
• Check that the file is actually DivX.
When you encounter problems make sure that:
the file that you are trying to play actually
contains DivX video.The files often use the term
“DivX” in their filename even though they have in
fact been coded in another format.
The menus or subtitles do not appear in
the language you want
• With a DVD: the DVD menus are not displayed
in your language. Check the disc jacket to see
which languages are available. Choose the
language of your choice, if available.
Problems playing DivX version 5.1 and
the version 2.5 player
• With certain recent version, coding problems
may arise with DivX files which are related
directly to the capacities of your computer.The
coding may require the entire capacity of the
microprocessor and alter the quality of the
image or desynchronise the image and the
sound.
• With a DVD: there are no subtitles. Check the
disc jacket to see whether subtitles are
available. Choose the subtitles of your choice, if
available.
• The preferred language for DVD dialogues and
subtitles was set upon initial installation of your
DVD recorder.
The display or reading of digital images
in JPEG format is slow
• You can also change the language while a disc is
playing by pressing the INFO key and selecting
the
icon for dialogues or
for subtitles.
This choice is only valid for the disc if it has not
