Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.

and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.

Media Handling
Disc Care
Inserting/Removing the USB memory
Inserting the USB memory
Holding a disc
Handle discs by the edges to avoid inadvertently scratching or
getting oil from your fingers on the disc. Do not touch the signal
surface of discs (the shiny side).
Cleaning discs
Discs are not indestructible and occasionally dirt or
condensation may appear. Clean by gently wiping with a soft,
dry lint-free cloth in a straight line from the centre of the disc to
the edge of the disc.
Return discs to their cases when not in use; this helps to protect
against scratches and dirt.
Storing discs
≥ Do not place or store discs in the following locations:
– Direct sunlight
– Very dusty or humid areas
– Near a heat source
– Places that undergo extreme shifts in temperature
(condensation can occur)
– Where static electricity or electromagnetic waves occur
Discs to avoid
≥ Discs that are not perfectly circular in shape
≥ Warped discs, which may not balance properly in your unit,
causing improper operation or damage to the unit
≥ Cracked discs
≥ Discs with exposed adhesive (from removed stickers or
labels, such as may occur with rental discs or improperly
cared-for discs that were previously labelled or re-labelled)
≥ Before inserting any USB memory to this unit, ensure that the
data stored therein has been backed up.
≥ Check the orientation of the USB connector and insert it
straight in.
≥ Insert an USB device while the unit is stopped, so the “USB
device” screen is displayed. Select an item, then press [OK]
to switch to the USB-related operations (> 42, 60).
Removing the USB memory
≥ Complete all USB-related operations and pull the USB
memory straight out.
≥ If a USB memory being accessed is pulled out, then the data
may be damaged.

Timer Recording
What is FREEVIEWTM?
FREEVIEW is the function that enables timer recordings to be controlled by the signal sent
from the broadcaster. “Guide Link” is available.
“Guide Link” – If you set a timer recording from the TV Guide, the recording’s start and stop
times can be controlled by the broadcaster, e.g. delayed start.
This is indicated by “Guide Link” in the Timer Recording screen in step 2 (> below).
If you set a timer recording from the TV Guide, the recording’s start and stop times are
controlled by the signal sent from the broadcaster. If the signal is not sent correctly,
the recording may lack the beginning or the ending part of the programmes.
In order to make the timer recording work successfully, we recommend you set the
start time earlier and the end time later by some minutes, up to a maximum of 10
minutes for Guide Link to function.
e.g. When you set the timer recording for a programme that will start at 10:00 and end
at 11:00, set “9:58” and “11:05” in step 3 (> below).
[RAM] [-R] [-R]DL] [-RW‹V›] [+R] [+R]DL] [+RW] [VHS]

Using “Flexible Recording” is convenient in these kinds of situations:
– When the amount of free space on the disc makes selecting an
appropriate recording mode difficult
– When you want to record a long programme with the best picture
quality possible
e.g., Recording a 90-minute programme to 4.7 GB DVD-RAM disc:

− If you select SP mode, the programme will fit on one disc.
Notes
However there will be 30 minutes
remaining disc space.
≥This unit uses variable bit rate (VBR) recording which varies the
amount of data recorded to suit the picture quality, so actual recording
times and remaining recording times shown by the unit will be
different. ([-R]DL] [+R]DL] The difference will be especially noticeable.)
Use a disc with enough remaining blank space.
≥When recording to DVD-RAM using EP ( 8 hours ) mode, play may
not be possible on DVD players, even if they are compatible with
DVD-RAM. In this case use EP ( 6 hours ) mode.
− If you select “Flexible Recording” the programme will fit on one

When “Time Setting” is set to “Off” in step 6 (> left):
≥ The recording mode is automatically selected by estimating
the remaining capacity of the disc for copying of only the
recorded parts in the video cassette (unrecorded parts will
not be recorded).
≥ When you press [OK] to start copy, the tape is automatically
fast-forwarded to the end and then fast-rewound to the
beginning before the copying is actually started. It may take
time to start copy. If the remaining capacity of the disc is
insufficient, the copying will be stopped in the middle.
≥ The recording is divided into titles every time the tape index
signals are detected.
When “Time Setting” is set to “On” in step 6 (> left):
≥ The recording mode is automatically determined by
estimating the remaining capacity of the disc for copying of
the contents equivalent to the recording time set from the
start point of the copying on the video cassette (unrecorded
parts will also be recorded).
≥ The recording is not divided into titles.

[OK].
6 Press [2] to select “Yes”, then press [OK].

Glossary
Bitstream
This is a signal compressed and converted into digital form. It is
converted back to a multi-channel audio signal, e.g., 5.1-channel, by a
decoder.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to be
recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with CPRMcompatible recorders and discs.
Decoder
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is
called decoding.
Deep Colour
This unit incorporates HDMI (V.1.3a with Deep Colour) technology that
can reproduce greater colour gradation (4096 steps) when connected to
a compatible TV.
You can enjoy exceptionally rich, natural-looking colours, with smooth,
detailed gradation and minimal colour banding.
[A lower colour gradation (256 steps), without Deep Colour, will be
reproduced if connected to a TV which does not support Deep Colour.
The unit will automatically set appropriate output to suit the connected
TV.]
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2 channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can be
recorded on one disc using this method.
When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default
audio.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some
discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to the 5.1channel audio recorded on DVDs through your TV’s speakers. Some
discs prohibit down-mixing. If this is the case, this unit can only output
the front two channels.
Drive
In the instance of this unit, this refers to the disc (DVD) and video
cassette (VHS). These perform the reading and writing of data.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that
can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of
sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression means
reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds. This means
you can hear dialogue clearly at low volume.
Film and Video
DVD-Video are recorded using either film or video. The unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film:
Video:
Finalise
Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL discs) or 24
frames per second (NTSC discs). (NTSC discs
recorded at 30 frames per second as well.)
Generally appropriate for motion picture films.
Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second (PAL
discs) or 30 frames/60 fields per second (NTSC
discs). Generally appropriate for TV drama
programmes or animation.
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalise DVDR, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format), +R, and +R DL on the
unit. After finalising, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer
record or edit. However, finalised DVD-RW can be formatted to become
recordable.

Folder
This is a place on the disc where groups of data are stored together. In
the case of this unit, it refers to the place where still pictures (JPEG) are
stored.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format DVD-RAM, DVD-RW (only as DVD-Video format) and
+RW or unused +R and +R DL on this unit.
Formatting irrevocably erases all contents.
Frame and Field
Frame refers to the single images that constitute the video you see on
your TV. Each frame consists of 2 fields.

Frame

Field
Field
≥A frame still shows 2 fields, so there may be some blurring between
them, but picture quality is generally better.
≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
Unlike conventional connections, it transmits uncompressed digital
video and audio signals on a single cable. This unit supports highdefinition video output [720p (750p), 1080i (1125i) and 1080p (1125p)]
from HDMI AV OUT terminal. To enjoy high-definition video a high
definition compatible television is required.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding color still pictures. If
you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras, etc., the
data will be compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The benefit of
JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the degree of
compression.
LPCM (Linear PCM)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.
MPEG2 (Moving Picture Experts Group)
A standard for efficiently compressing and expanding colour video.
MPEG2 is a compression standard used for DVD and satellite based
digital broadcasting. This unit records programmes using MPEG2.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately
1/10 of its size without any significant loss of audio quality.
Pan & Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they will be
viewed on a widescreen TV (16:9 aspect ratio), so images often don’t fit
regular TVs (4:3 aspect ratio). 2 styles of picture, “Pan & Scan” and
“Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan & Scan:
The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Letterbox:
Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the
picture itself appears in an aspect
ratio of 16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus on the screen.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)

Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
RGB
This refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green (G), and
blue (B) and also the method of producing video that uses them. By
dividing the video signal into the three colours for transmission, noise is
reduced for even higher quality images.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analogue signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Signal Quality
This is the guide for checking the aerial direction. The numbered values
displayed do not indicate the strength of the signal, but the quality of the
signal (the signal to noise ratio, or “S/N”). The channels you can receive
are affected by weather conditions, seasons, time (day/night), region,
length of the cable that is connected to the aerial, etc.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display
multiple pictures in the form of a matrix.
1080i
In one high-definition image, 1080 (1125) alternating scan lines pass
every 1/50th of a second to create an interlace image. Because 1080i
(1125i) more than doubles current television broadcasts of 480i (525i),
the detail is much clearer and creates a more realistic and rich image.
1080p
In one high-definition image, 1080 (1125) scan lines pass at the same
time every 1/50th of a second to create a progressive image. Since
progressive video does not alternate scan lines like interlace, there is a
minimal amount of screen flicker.
720p
In one high-definition image, 720 (750) scan lines pass at the same
time every 1/50th of a second to create a progressive image. Since
progressive video does not alternate scan lines like interlace, there is a
minimal amount of screen flicker.
