Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13
Amp plug. To change a fuse in this type of
plug proceed as follows:
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362
5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your
socket outlets, it should be cut off and an
appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a
fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured
with the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
As these colours may not correspond with
the colour markings identifying the terminals
in your plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).

Undgå utsættelse for stråling.
Bemærk: Netafbryderen er sekundært
indkoblet og ofbryder ikke strømmen fra
nettet. Den indbyggede netdel er derfor
tilsluttet til lysnettet så længe netstikket
sidder i stikkontakten.

Varning! Om apparaten används på annat
sätt än i denna bruksanvisning
specificerats, kan användaren utsättas för
osynlig laserstrålning, som överskrider
gränsen för laserklass 1.
Observera! Stömbrytaren är sekundärt
kopplad och bryter inte strömmen från
nätet. Den inbyggda nätdelen är därför
ansluten till elnätet så länge stickproppen
sitter i vägguttaget.

Luokan 1 laserlaite
Varoitus! Laitteen käyttäminen muulla kuin
tässä käyttöohjeessa mainitulla tavalla
saattaa altistaa käyttäjän
turvallisuusluokan 1 ylittävälle
näkymättömälle lasersäteilylle.
Oikeus muutoksiin varataan. Laite ei saa
olla alttiina tippu-ja roiskevedelle.
Huom. Toiminnanvalitsin on kytketty
toisiopuolelle, eikä se kytke laitetta irti

Care and Safety Information
English
CAUTION!
High voltage! Do not open the
device. You run the risk of getting
an electric shock.
The machine does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Please leave
all maintenance work to qualified
personnel.
Setup precautions
Finding a suitable location
– Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface. Do not place the set on a carpet.
– Do not position the set on top of
other equipment that might heat it up
(e.g., receiver or amplifier).
– Do not put anything under the set
(e.g., CDs, magazines).
– Install this unit near the AC outlet and
where the AC power plug can be
reached easily.
Space for ventilation
– Place the apparatus in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build up. Allow at least 10 cm (4”)
clearance from the rear and the top of
the set and 5 cm (2”) from the left and
right to prevent overheating.
Avoid high temperatures, moisture,
water and dust
– Apparatus must not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
– Do not place any sources of danger
on the apparatus (e.g., liquid filled
objects, lighted candles).
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc
inside the recorder is dirty (frozen picture,
sound disruptions, picture distortions). To
avoid these problems, discs should be
cleaned on a regular basis.
To clean a disc, use a micro fibre cleaning
cloth and wipe the disc from the centre
to the edge in a straight line.
CAUTION!
Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static sprays intended for discs.
HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
handling care
The hard disk drive (HDD) has a high
storage density that enables long
recording duration and high speed data
access. Depending on the setup
environment and handling, some content
may be damaged resulting in failure of
playback and recording. To avoid damage
to the HDD and losing important data,
observe following precautions:
– Do not move the recorder or subject
it to vibration.
– Do not remove the AC power plug
from the mains socket without switching
the recorder to standby mode.
WARNING!
The HDD is not a device for storing
recorded content permanently. We
recommend that you copy important
video content to a recordable DVD as
backup.

IMPORTANT!
Unrecordable pictures
Television programmes, films, video
tapes, discs, and other materials may be
copy-protected and therefore cannot be
recorded on this recorder.
Copying from HDD to a
recordable DVD
You can copy a recorded title(s) from the
HDD (hard disk drive) to a recordable
DVD.
The time taken to copy content from the
HDD to a recordable DVD depends on
the record quality of the HDD
recordings.
It is not possible to change the mode of
record quality during the copying
process. As such, it is important that you
choose the appropriate record quality
when you first set up the recording to
the HDD.
The copying process is done at a higher
speed than the recording. The following
information will be stored on the disc :
– Title/name of recording
– Date of recording
– Time of recording
– Record quality mode/ length of
recording
– Index picture of title
TIPS:
Discs for recording
There are several formats of recordable
DVD discs which can be used with this
recorder:
DVD±RW (ReWritable DVD discs)
– Discs that are rewritable can be used
for multiple recordings once the existing
data has been erased.
DVD±R (Recordable DVD discs)
– Discs that can only be used for a single
recording. Each new recording is always
added at the end of all previous
recordings as existing recordings cannot
be overwritten.
– Editing can be made on DVD±R discs
as long as they have not been finalised.
– To play a DVD±R disc on another
DVD player, it must be finalised [see the
section “Playing your recordings on
other DVD players (DVD±R only)”].
After this is done, no more content can
be added to the disc.
Ensure that there is sufficient space available on the DVD±R before recording. You have to finalise the
DVD±R before it can be played on other players, see “Edit Recordings – Recordable DVD”.

What kind of disc should I use for
recording?
You can record on both DVD±R and
DVD±RW discs. They are compatible with
DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives in
computers.
What are Titles and Chapters?
A DVD disc contains Titles and Chapters,
which are similar to the Titles and Chapters of
a book. A Title is often a complete movie and
is broken down into Chapters, or individual
scenes from the movies.
Title
What is the capacity of a recordable
DVD disc?
4.7GB, or equivalent to 6 CDs. You can store
only one hour of recordings on a single disc at
the highest quality (DVD standard) and about
8 hours recordings at the lowest quality
(VHS standard).
What is the difference between
DVD±R and DVD±RW?
DVD±Rs are “recordable” discs and
DVD±RWs are “rewritable” discs. With a
DVD±R disc, you can record multiple sessions
on the same disc, but when the disc is full, you
cannot record any more content on the disc.
The DVD±RW disc allows you to record over
the same disc repeatedly.
What is DV?
Using DV, also known as i.LINK, you can
connect a DV-equipped camcorder to
this recorder using a single DV cable for

Frequently Asked Questions
Chapter
Title
Chapter Chapter Chapter Chapter
chapter markers
A programme is recorded as a single title, it
may consist of one chapter or a few chapters
within a title, depending on the recording
settings.
How do I set up Titles and Chapters?
The recorder will automatically create a new
Title each time you start a new recording.
– For DVD recordings, you can add chapters
manually.
– For HDD recordings, you can preset
chapters to be automatically inserted at
5-minutes intervals.
What does “finalizing” a disc do?
Finalizing a disc locks the disc so it can no
longer be recorded, only required for
DVD±Rs. It will then be compatible with
virtually any DVD player. To close a disc
without finalizing it, simply stop recording and
eject the disc. You will still be able to record
on the disc if there is capacity for more
recordings.
How good is the quality of the
recording?
There are seven modes of record quality levels
to choose from, ranging from “HQ” (1 hour
recording at high quality) to “SEP” (8 hours
recording at VHS quality) on a recordable
DVD. Choose the quality level that best suits
your purpose and the length of material.

Problem (Recording)
Solution
Recordings are not
occurring as scheduled.
New recordings cannot be
made.
– The TV channel you want to record is not stored. Or,
you may have selected the wrong programme number.
Check the TV channels stored.
– You have to reset the timer recording after adjusting
the clock setting.
– You cannot use the recorder to duplicate copyprotected materials (DVDs or videotapes) onto a
recordable DVD.
– The hard disk could be full. Delete some titles to create
space for new recordings.
The wrong TV channel was
decoded (recorded) after you
programmed a recording
using the SHOWVIEW® /VIDEO
Plus+ system.
1) Enter the SHOWVIEW®/ PlusCode programming
number of the desired TV channel.
2) Press OK to confirm.
3) Check the channel number in the {Program #} input
field. If this does not correspond to the desired TV
channel, select this entry field and change the channel
number.
4) Press OK to confirm.
The recorded DVD cannot
be played back on another
DVD player.
– If a recording is too short, it is possible that a DVD
player/recorder cannot detect it. Please observe the
following ‘minimum recording times’. Mode of record
quality: {High Quality - HQ} – 5 minutes, {Standard Play SP} – 10 minutes, {Standard Play Plus - SPP} – 13 minutes,
{Long Play - LP} – 15 minutes, {Extended Play - EP} – 20
minutes, {Super Long Play - SLP} – 30 minutes, {Super
Extended Play - SEP] – 30 minutes.
– You have to finalise the DVD±R. Refer to chapter

cassettes that have been copy-protected. Even though the
picture on the TV is fine, but the recording on the
recordable DVD is faulty.
This interference is unavoidable with copy-protected
DVDs or video cassettes.
– The recordable DVD has a limited recording lifetime,
please change a new disc for recording.
