1. Introduction
Common questions
What is a DVD?
DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is a new storage medium that combines the convenience of
the compact disc with the latest digital video technology. DVD video uses modern
MPEG2 data compression technology that enables an entire feature film to be stored
on a single five inch disc.
How good is the resolution of DVD compared with VHS?
The razor-sharp digital images have a resolution of more than 500 lines of 720 pixels
per line.This is more than twice as high as VHS and is even better than the laser disc. Its
picture quality is easily comparable to the digital masters produced in recording studios.
What can DVD+RW do?
DVD+ReWritable uses phase change media, the same technology on which rewritable
CDs are based. A high-performance laser is used to change the reflective properties of
the recording layer; this process can be repeated more than a thousand times.
What can the DVD+R do?
DVD+R (write-once DVD). Unlike a DVD+RW disc, this disc can only be written once.
If it is not finalized after a recording, further recordings can be added to it. Old recordings can be deleted but can no longer be overwritten. The deleted titles are marked
“Deleted title”.
Before this disc can be played in a DVD player, it must be finalised in the DVD recorder.
Once this process is complete, no further recordings can be added.
What can my DVD recorder do?
Your DVD recorder is a machine for recording and playing back digital video discs with
“two-way” compatibility with the universal DVD video standard. This means:
•) existing DVD video discs can be played on the recorder.
•) Recordings made on your DVD recorder can be played on other DVD video players
and DVD ROM drives.

Regional code
Because DVD films are usually not released at the same time in all regions of the world,
all DVD players are keyed to a specific region code. Discs can be assigned an optional
region code. If the region codes of the player and disc do not coincide, playback is not
possible.
ALL
1
This device will only play Region 1 DVDs or DVDs manufactured to be played in all
regions (“ALL”).
DVDs from other regions cannot be played in this DVD Recorder.
The number within the globe represents the region of the world.
Region 1 represents:
U.S, Canada, upper regions of North America, Bermuda, U.S.Virgin Islands and smaller
regions near Australia.

Cleaning the discs
Some malfunctions (frozen or distorted picture and broken sound for example) are due
to dirt on the disc. To avoid such problems you should clean your discs regularly.
1
Dirty discs should be cleaned with a soft cloth. Always wipe from the middle to
the edge.
2
Do not use any solvents such as benzine, thinners, commercially available cleaning
agents or antistatic sprays designed for vinyl records.
Question
Can I use a CD lens cleaner in the DVD recorder?
This optical unit (laser) of the DVD recorder operates at a higher power level than
the ones in normal DVDs and CD players so CD lens cleaner discs may actually
damage it.
CD lens cleaner discs should therefore not be used.

2. Connecting your DVD recorder
Preparing the remote control
You must install the supplied batteries into the remote control before you can use it.
1
Unpack the remote control and the two AA (LR-6) batteries.
2
Open the battery compartment, insert the batteries in accordance with the polarity markings, and then close the battery compartment.
The remote control is now ready to use.
The remote control has a range of approximately 5 to 10 meters.
Caution
Do not mix old and new batteries. Never mix different types of batteries
(standard, alkaline, etc.). Doing so may reduce the life of the batteries.
Connection notes
•) Before connecting your TV,VCR, AV amp, or any other equipment to your DVD
recorder, refer to the relevant manuals first.
•) Do not connect the power cord until all connections are complete.
•) For the best results when playing DVDs, connect the DVD recorder’s video output
directly to your TV. If you connect your TV via your VCR, the DVD copy protection
system may affect the picture quality.
•) To enjoy the surround sound capabilities offered by DVD (Dolby Digital, DTS,
MPEG-2), you need to connect one of the DVD recorder’s digital audio outputs to
an AV amp with an appropriate surround-sound decoder built-in. See “Surround
sound connections” on page 17.
•) For synchronized recordings to other components connected with digital audio
cables, the length of each track and track numbers of the recorded materials may
become different from the originals. Occasionally, it does not start recording.
Caution
Do not connect the DVD recorder’s audio outputs to your audio system’s
turntable (phono) inputs. Doing so may damage your equipment.
Connecting your antenna
Connecting your antenna as shown will allow you to record a program on your DVD
recorder while watching another program on your TV.

Connecting your TV to get the best
picture
To enjoy the best picture quality when playing DVDs, you need to connect the DVD
recorder to your TV using one of the following connection (the connection you choose
will most likely depend on the connections supported by your TV).
COMPONENT VIDEO (best picture quality)
Component video connections offer the best picture quality, so if your TV has a
COMPONENT VIDEO input, use it.
S-Video (very good picture quality)
S-Video connections offer better picture quality than composite video, so if your
TV has an S-Video input, use it.
Composite video (good picture quality)
If your TV has neither COMPONENT VIDEO nor S-Video inputs, use a composite
video connection.

If you have an S-VHS VCR, you could connect the DVD recorder’s S-VIDEO output
to an S-Video input on the VCR, and connect the DVD recorder’s AUDIO L/R outputs
to analog audio inputs on the VCR.
Notes
Most prerecorded video cassettes and DVDs are copy protected. If you
try to copy them, the message “COPY PROT” will appear on the DVD
recorder’s display.
If the DVD recorder displays the message “NO SIGNAL” when copying a
video cassette:
• Check that the cables are connected securely.
• Try adjusting the VCR’s tracking function.
• The DVD recorder may not recognize the video signal if it’s weak or does not
conform to normal video standards.
When copying DVD-Video discs or prerecorded video cassettes, the picture is fuzzy and the brightness changes continuously?
• This happens when you copy a DVD or video cassette that uses copy protection.
Playback of the original is OK, but the DVD+R(W) recording will be unwatchable. This is normal with copy-protected DVDs and video cassettes.
Connecting your camcorder
You can transfer your home movies to DVD by connecting your camcorder to the AV
sockets on the DVD recorder’s front panel, as shown.
Best picture quality
If you have a DV or Digital 8 camcorder, using its i-link cable (7), connect the camcorder’s i-link DV output to the DVD recorder’s DV input.
During the transfer, the original recording dates and times of your home movies will be
recorded on the DVD as subtitles. During DVD playback, you can view this information
by using the Subtitle function.

General
Question
Which discs can I use for recording?
With this DVD recorder, you can record on two types of DVD:
DVD+RW
This disc can be written to and then the contents deleted.
DVD+R
This type of disc can only be recorded once.
If you want to play this DVD in a DVD player it must be finalized using the “Finalise
disc” function. It is not possible to make further recordings using this disc.
If this disc is to be played in a DVD recorder it must not be finalised.
Recordings can be added and deleted. The disc space (playback time) from the
deleted recording cannot be recovered for further recordings
Use the “Manual recording” function to spontaneously start recording (e.g. to record a
TV show already in progress).
In the “index display” select the title to be overwritten or “Empty title” with w, v.
If you insert recordings between existing recordings, check the lengths of the old and
new recordings. If the new recording is too long the subsequent recording (title/chapter) will be overwritten.
Tip
Insert new recordings at the end of all existing recordings (Safe Record)
To add a new recording at the end of the last recording on the disc, hold down the
REC S button until the message “SAFE REC” appears on the display.
For DVD+R discs each new recording is always added at the end of all previous
recordings as existing recordings cannot be overwritten.

Recorder will turn itself off automatically.
Please refer to section “Recording without automatic switch-off ”, if you want to
manually start and stop your own recording.
If you want to start a recording manually but have it stopped automatically, read the

10. Programming a recording (TIMER)
General
Use “Programming a recording (TIMER)”, to automatically start and stop a recording at
a later date.
The DVD recorder will switch to the right programme number and begin recording at
the correct time.
With this DVD recorder, you can pre-programme up to six recordings within a period
of one month.
To make a programmed recording, your DVD recorder needs to know:
* the date you want to make the recording
* the programme number of the TV channel
* the start and stop time of the recording
* the recording mode (“M1/M2/M2x/M3/M4/M6/FR”)
This information is saved in a “TIMER block”.
Before you begin, make sure the clock is set. If the clock is not set, the “Time/Date”
menu will appear when you press the TIMER button.
Question
What is “FR mode”?
FR mode is used when you want to record a certain length of program but you
don’t know how much room remaining on the recording disc. By using this mode,
this unit automatically selects the best suitable recording mode for the length of the
program. You cannot select FR mode, when you set the recording timer of Mo-Fr/
Weekly, and when you set PDC/VPS on. We strongly recommend that you do not
use this function combined with VPS/PDC. In such a condition this DVD recorder
may not perform the task properly.
