Before Recording
English
Recording media
The recording media for this recorder
are internal hard disk drive and DVD±R/
±RW/+R DL.
– The hard disk has a high storage density
which enables long recording duration
and quick access to the recording titles.
DVD±RW (DVD Rewritable)
– Discs that are rewritable can be used for
multiple recordings once the existing data
is erased.
DVD±R (DVD Recordable)
– Discs 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 done on DVD±R discs as
long as they have not been finalised.
– You can also delete unwanted recordings.
However, the disc space occupied by the
deleted recordings cannot be recovered
for further recording.
– To play a DVD±R disc on other DVD
players, it must be finalised. After this is
done, no more data can be added to the
disc. See ‘Edit Recordings - Recordable
DVD - Finalising the DVD±R for
playback’ for details.
26
DVD+R DL (DVD+R Double Layer)
– It contains the same usage as DVD+R, the
only difference is the capacity of 8.5 GB.
It offers two recordable layers on a single
DVD disc. The layers are accessible from
the same side of the disc, so recording
can occur completely uninterrupted.

Helpful Hints:
– In some cases, you may not be able to add
new recording to a recordable DVD that
contains recordings from other DVD recorders.
– If the newly recorded title in the hard disk
is not accessible, turn the recorder off and on
again to recover the recording.
– If you are unable to fit a title to a
recordable DVD, split the title to remove the
unwanted sections. See ‘Edit Recordings Hard Disk - Video editing’ for details.

for software updates and additional
product information.
What kind of disc should I use for
recording?
You can only record on DVD±R, DVD±RW
or DVD+R DL discs. DVD±R/±RW is the
most compatible recordable DVD format in
the market today. They are fully compatible
with most of the existing DVD-Video players
and DVD-ROM drives in computers.
What is the capacity of a DVD±R and
DVD±RW?
4.7GB, or equivalent to six CDs. You can
store only one hour of recording on a single
disc at the highest quality (DVD standard)
and about 8 hours recording at the lowest
quality (VHS standard). The recording mode
indicates the number of hours that can fit on
a single disc.
What is the difference between
DVD±R and DVD±RW?
DVD±R is ‘recordable’ and DVD±RW is
“erasable” and “rewritable”. With a DVD±R,
you can record multiple sessions on the
same disc. But when the disc is full, you
cannot record any more on the disc. The
DVD±RW allows you to record over the
same disc repeatedly.
Can I copy a VHS tape or DVD from
an external player?
Yes, but only if the VHS tape or DVD is not
copy protected.
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 input
and output of audio, video, data and control
signals.
– This recorder is only compatible with
DV-format (DVC-SD) camcorders.
Digital satellite tuners and Digital VHS
video recorders are not compatible.
– You cannot connect more than one DV
camcorder at a time to this recorder.
– You cannot control this recorder from
external equipment connected via the DV
IN socket.
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
Chapter Chapter Chapter Chapter
chapter markers
Programmes are recorded as a single title.
They 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 automatically creates a new
Title every time you start a new recording.
You can then add Chapters to these
recordings manually or have them
automatically inserted at a specific intervals.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
English
What does ‘finalising’ a disc do?
Finalising a disc locks the disc so it can no
longer be recorded. This is only required for
DVD±R. It will then be compatible with
virtually any DVD player. To remove a disc
without finalising it, simply stop recording
and eject the disc. You can still record on
the disc if there is storage space for more
recordings.
How good is the quality of the
recording?
There are a few picture 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.

Some recordings listed on the HDD
menu cannot be played or copied to
disc.
Some TV broadcasts or videos from external
device that are recorded to this recorder
may contain copy protection signals. Such
material cannot be played back from the
HDD or copied to a recordable DVD.
The copy-protected recordings are marked
with the icon C in the HDD menu. They are
either fully protected (copy never) or
partially protected (copy once). For copy
once recording, playback is possible but once
copied to a recordable DVD, the recording
will be removed from the HDD.
When playing a DivX movie, why the
subtitle cannot be displayed properly?
– You have to make sure that the subtitle
file has the exact same file name as the
movie file. If for example the filename of
the movie is “Movie.avi”, then you will
need to name the text file “Movie.sub” or
“Movie.srt”.
– You may need to change the ‘Character
set’ or ‘DivX subtitle’ display of this
player to which supports the recorded
DivX subtitle.

What is HDMI?
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
is a high-speed digital interface that can
transmit uncompressed high definition video
and digital multichannel audio. It delivers
high quality picture and sound quality,
completely free from noise. HDMI is fully
backward-compatible with DVI.
As required by the HDMI standard,
connecting to HDMI or DVI products
without HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection) will result in no Video
or Audio output.
What is MHEG?
Multimedia and Hypermedia information
coding Expert Group is the ISO/IEC/JTC1SC
29 working group, which provides standards
for the coded representation of multimedia
hypermedia information objects that are
interchanged among applications and services
using a variety of media. The objects define
the structure of a multimedia hypermedia
presentation.
Why does it take so long to display the
contents on my USB device?
– This could be due to the large numbers
of files (>500 files/folders) or size of the
files (>1MB).
– There could be other non-supported files
in the device that this unit is trying to
read/display.
What if unsupported devices (e.g. USB
mouse, keyboards) are plugged into
the unit?
The device may cause this unit to be
unstable. Remove the unsupported device
and unplug the mains cord. Wait for a few
minutes before reconnecting the mains cord
and power on this unit again.
What happens when I plug in a USB
HDD?
HDD is not supported as the large storage
capacity makes navigation very difficult.
Transfer the music files (mp3) and photos
(jpg) into a flash drive if you want to playback
on this recorder.
Why does this unit fail to detect my
USB socketable music player?
The portable music player may require
propriety software that is bundled with our
system in order to access the contents (eg.
playlist). MTP class not supported, only can
support mass storage class devices.
What types of file does the system
support?
We support only FAT16 and FAT32, not
NTFS.
Why does the file name appear to be
different from what was displayed on my
computer (e.g. from ‘Good Bye. jpg’ to
‘Good_B~1.jpg’)?
– The length of the file name is restricted
by the file system of the device (FAT16),
which only supports eight (8) characters.
– The computer may be able to display the
full file name as the operating system can
convert the file system.
Why can’t I rotate the pictures in my
device?
In order to rotate the pictures in the USB
device, the picture must contain EXIF
information, stored by most digital cameras.
This EXIF information may have been
removed when you edit or copy the picture
from other devices using editing programmes.
Why can’t this unit play some of my
music files, photos or movies?
The music files may not be playable because
of different formats and encoding bit-rates.
Similarly, the photos may be of low
resolution or too high resolution for this unit
to support.
